Ginger was a wonderful real estate agent! I cannot put into words how outstanding Ginger is, this was an emotional process for me and she was there for me every stop of the way. From beginning to end she was a true professional with a complete understanding of the real estate market. She goes beyond the extra mile for her clients - she is truly one in a million! I would recommend her to all my friends and family! Melissa
Karen was extremely knowledgeable and professional. She knows how to strategize for the client and how to make it all work out of to your advantage, Would absolutely use her again. Did the close from Dallas and it went perfectly. We first had to renovate before selling. Project took about a month. Michelle in maintenance was extremely competent and I did not have to be there. Century 21 also handles our rental properties. Their services are outstanding! Deb and Dave
I believe Sandy Harris was excellent in all regards, She offered good advice on how to respond to offers from several potential buyers and successfully manged the negotiations with the eventual buyer. Once a deal was in place, Sandy also managed addressing the issues that arose in the porperty inspection, She made the whole transaction efficient and easy for me as a long-distance seller. Thank you Sandy!
Jenny was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Knowledgeable,understanding, passionate individual. Jenny was also extremely professional, allowing my wife and I to exploit confidence with our buying experience, as this was our first home. We will certainly request Jenny's services again if we purchase a home in the Tampa Bay area in the future.
