Customer Testimonial

Debbie L. Bennice

Buyer Rating:

Debbie Bennice arranged sale and purchase on same date, eliminated closing costs on our end. Deb has takes her clients best interest to heart and achieves those goals. - Duane Simo, Punta Gorda August 2017

Diane DePaul

Seller Rating:

Diane De Paul was more than a Broker. She was a friend.

Since I am out of State she took a personal interest in making sure the house was clean and staged correctly for sale. She helped with the choice of bedding, placed the bedding on the beds herself, since I was not there and all in all took care of the property as if it were her own.

I highly recommend Diane to anyone who needs help in selling their property.

She is the best. - Annamaria Nucci, Cedar G August 2017

Ellen A. McCarthy

Mark R. Tyree

Seller Rating:

Mark wa always very helpful, he was always available to answer any questions. - Cielo Zapata August 2017

Jacqueline A. Rowe

Seller Rating:

Overall the experience with Mrs. Jacqueline Rowe was great. Her help with this process was greatly appreciated, because this was my first time selling a home and had no idea what to expect. The sale of the house was especially hard for me because this was my parents home. Their home was in Florida and I am in Georgia so I had to have someone who I can trust to sell this house without me going back and forth from Georgia to Florida. I would highly recommend Mrs. Jacqueline Rowe to anyone who wants an agent that will do right by them. - Marcia Anderson, Kingsla August 2017

Mary E. Sampiere

Bonnie is very helpful she gives you her honest opinion when asked. I would recommend Bonnie because she is a very dedicated & trustworthy realtor. She knows her job and does it well. - Teri Colas Port Charlott July 2017

Darlene Rains

Buyer Rating:

I would highly recommend Darlene Rains to my family and friends. She is very professional and interested in helping her clients find the house they are looking for. She helped make our process of purchasing a home very easy. She always let us know what was going on.

She has a lot of compassion for her clients, wanting to help them in any way that she can.

She is an awesome realtor. I think she is probably in the top 3% of realtors in the area. - Donna Barnes, North Port July 2017

Patrick J. Vasquez

Pat is a great asset for any real estate team. He listens and understands the needs of the customer. - Chris Lopez, Punta Gorda June 2017

Cynthia A. Niccolls

Buyer Rating:

Cindy was so good helping us find a new place that we're having her be in control of selling our old place. - Paul Smiley, Darien, Il June 2017

Robert G. Gravatt

Buyer Rating:

As usual Bob researched the history of the property - although as a raw lot the information was not lengthy, Bob ALWAYS does his homework. In searching for a lot, my wife and I had seen a sign on another lot and was ready to purchase it, but Bob researched it, discovered County Water was NOT available to that property -- saving us a lot of money!

Bob's knowledge and integrity are beyond reproach -- plus his downright love of his profession are always evident.

In 2011, after looking at over 200 houses from Ft. Myers to Port Charlotte, and talking with an untold number of Realtors, it was Bob Gravatt who actually took an interest in our search for the 'perfect home' - and called us early in the morning a day or two later saying a property had just come on the market - perhaps we would like to see it -- we did, we bought, and Bob & Darleen Gravatt have been our Realtors of choice ever since. We have bought and sold many properties in three states over the past 30 years and no Realtor has provided such competent, timely advice as Bob Gravatt. I recommend him to everyone I come in contact with that needs, or expresses a need, for a Realtor.

My wife and I have purchased a few properties through Bob Gravatt and Almar -- always a satisfying experience. - Rob & Alisa Robinson - P June 2017

Sury Duque

Buyer Rating:

Sury provided me with all the information I needed,she was very polite and always kept me up to date on the process on our loan. I also like that even when it was after hours she would always answer anything questions I had and help me send all the documents I needed to the lender.i would recommend sury to family and friends because she worked hard to get everything I needed in time and always kept me updated on the the status of our loan. Sury made my first time buying a house easier then I thought it would be - Jodyarvizu,arcadia Fl May 2017

Michele Behnfeldt

Seller Rating:

I enjoyed being with Michelle....after I told her what I needed, she found it...never felt like she was pushing me at all...it was like she knew when I had a good feeling about a house that was going to be the one. We laughed a lot and had fun... - Lynda Constantino March 2017

Anna M. Soloduk

Buyer Rating:

Ann Soloduk could not have worked any harder or professionally to complete our recent real estate deal. She was extremely attentive to every detail and made extraordinary effort to bring us to a successful conclusion. She demonstrated great patience working with an out-of-state seller who was less than attentive or responsive. She was creative and used her extensive network to pull the proverbial "rabbit out of the hat". - J Talley florida December 2016

Nicole L. Reed

Buyer Rating:

A TRUE PROFESSIONAL - Barbie & Ken Reutzel (re November 2016

The Pommer Team

Seller Rating:

The first contact was already very very vriendly. My English is bad and miss Pommer dit everything in German. She explained everythin very good and she was very helpful and nice. She always keep me in touch with wat she did. She did so much to sell the ground, much more than I was expecting. Nothing was to much and she always found a solution. I have the feeling you can not have a better broker, she take so much time and invested a lot of work to sell the ground. Great how she did it. I am happy with her work and also the kind of working with her.

Realy a brooker who is perfect!

Wat els I have to say.Great - Martell Brandwijk, Schap August 2016

Debbie L. Bennice

Seller Rating:

We could not have asked for a better experience. Debbie came in with her expertise and sold my father's house within 2 weeks. She was friendly,

knowledgeable about the area & comps, and was extremely helpful in recommendations for repairs prior to sale. She was approachable and efficient from the listing to the closing. If we had another house to sell ( or buy ) in the Punta Gorda area we would not hesitate to call on Debbie Bennice - Faith Zaretzky, Clarks S August 2017
