Nicole L. Reed

Seller Rating:

Nicole exceeded our expectations. She worked to sell our home very quickly! She answered the multiple questions we had daily to the best of her ability and if she couldn't she worked very hard to do so as quickly as possible. She did her best to make a very stressful situation of selling our home as easy as possible. We would highly recommend her to anyone! - Leah, Port Charlotte Fl December 2017

We have worked with other realtors in the past and Mary is a notch above them all. - Gary & Carol Tuttle, Mic November 2017

Mark R. Tyree

Buyer Rating:

We've purchase many homes previously but this was by far the best experience ever! This was a long distance purchase for us from the opposite side of the USA. We were impressed by Mark and his team because they are so familiar with the area. They sell homes not houses.

What made Mark and his team standout was the fact that he lives in this community and anticipated out needs perfectly! He steered us away from things that we couldn't see for ourselves from listings (busy roads and neighborhoods that didn't offer the things that were important to us) and helped us with good solid information as we needed it. He had a great understanding of what we needed and it worked out perfectly.

This was such a great experience! We have friends who live in the area that did a lot of the foot work in finding our home. They will now use Mark and his team for their next home purchase as they retire in the next year. - Kathleen And Michael Kuh November 2017

Diane DePaul

Buyer Rating:

Diane is an absolute professional and very knowledgeable real estate agent. She is very kind and carrying individual. She has gone behind expections from the beginning to closing the deal on my house where I was a buyer and she was representing me and seller in the same transaction, and on a very unusual and difficult situation that no any other agent would ever done for anyone. If you want to hire not only professional real estate agent but a good listener & a carrying and a kind professional that actually is care about your Needs, then you should only hire Diane Depaul. I am a real estate agent in Canada and I have never seen or heard of anyone as professional as Diane is. I absolutely recommend her to everyone I know. - Ann Duncan November 2017

Cynthia A. Niccolls

Buyer Rating:

Cindy was the listing agent for a home I purchased, she went above and beyond to help me get the home. She answered all my calls promptly and was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to others and look forward to having her as my agent for my next purchase.

This survey is way too long and probably losing valuable feedback from others not wishing to complete. If it was not for Cindy's great performance I would not have completed this lengthly of a survey. - Mark Witt. charlotte Co October 2017

David Lair

Seller Rating:

I Have Never met David but the way he made my mom and I feel through the whole process in selling the condo was as if we new him a life time.. He always took my call and was there for any question's or concern's I had.. I'm sure some of the time he wasn't even at work , I thank him for that, Most people would have said I'm not in the office today I will get back with you...

The only issue I had wasn't with David But with the other realtor...I feel they should have known about there clients financial situation pertaining to the hold on her check ahead of time.

Like I said before David made us feel as if we new him a life time.. - Brian E Pietras & Barbar August 2017

Anna M. Soloduk

Buyer Rating:

Great - Danny R. Milhem, Punta G 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

Bonnie Jean Scates-Caudill

Buyer Rating:

Bonnie Jean Scates-Caudill stands out to me because she is always available. She answers her phone texts and emails promptly that is very important to me. 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
