Recently I just purchase my beautiful new Condo in Venice, Florida through Mike and Anita Kramer.
Actually, I purchased a Villa also for my Parents.
Mike and Anita, are highly Professional, as well as knowledgeable and patient when it comes to the purchasing process!
I actually stumbled upon Mike, when I was inquiring on a property in Venice, that had gotten Sold within days of my first contact.
Needless to say he and Anita, were persistent in finding me the right homes and made me feel comfortable with each of these transactions.
I had a limited time frame to accomplish finding and Closing on these homes, (three and a half weeks) which they held my hand and guided me through, since I was also located in New York at the time.
I have run into other Agents down here, one just recently, that I would never engage in any type of Business transaction!
Thank you again Mike and Anita for being there for me, and making this a very pleasant experience.
Lauren had been sending me Emails of Condos within my budget for the past two years, in what looked to be, nice Senior Developments in Bradenton, Florida 7 or so miles from Bradenton Beach. I am a 66 year old, friendly, disabled Senior, so living in a “friendly” development, with a heated pool was a major consideration for me. I told her I did not want an old condo that I had to refurbish. I am divorced and do not have the luxury of having a man to refinish or repair an old dated apartment, and so, she showed me two really nice condos that looked to be recently refurbished. I loved them as soon as I walked in the door. Now all I have to do is furnish and clean them (oh, she also supplied me with the name of a cleaning woman) and enjoy the winter months free of SNOW, in the heated pool only feet from my building!!!!. The price was what I could afford, as I am on Social Security Disability with a small pension, so I was fortunate that she had condos within my price range. I am certain these condos will not be available next year; as I am noticing prices are going up in So. Florida. Northerners are sick of the freezing winters and the snow. I have now recommended Lauren to family members and others interested in buying Condos in South Sarasota. She has already communicated with them. They are also about to retire, but are very fortunate enough to have much more funds than I. One being an M.D., the other had her own business for many years. I am hoping that Lauren can talk them into a nice place in Sarasota…..near the beach, which is where my sister, a Nurse Practitioner wants to live. I would love to have my family members and friends nearby, in which case, I would move to my little condo permanently. Lauren has a nice personality and has patience. She is a perfect Realtor. She is not pushy, if you know what I mean. I am recommending Lauren to anyone who is interested in living near Bradenton or Sarasota. She has become my little friend, and
I hope to remain friends with Lauren, as I shall be living down in Bradenton in my nice new refurbished condo for 3-4 months of the winter, and I can thank Lauren for that. She has also given me information with regard to where to buy furniture, how to get to the beach, stores that sell this and that etc. She has been a hugh help to me. I think she is terrific.
Sincerely, Christina L., RN-Retired/disabled
I learned of Joyce through a mutual friend. My wife and I decided that we wanted to move to the Venice/Englewood area. Joyce spent 10 months sending me house data based upon our stated requirements. Eventually we came down to the area and she had a list of houses that met our requirements and indeed, one house was exactly what we wanted. We bought it the day she showed it to us. Through all this she has remained always willing to go the extra mile to assure that we had all the information to make a choice based upon the facts. She is knowledgeable, cheerful and always with gracious good manners. We never felt pressured or rushed to make a decision.
Fabulous realtor, knowledgeable, responsive and caring! Lauren has been an amazing agent and even though we purchased our home last year, she remains in contact with us. Lauren goes the “extra mile” to make sure she has as much information as possible, answers every question, and is assured that everyone is treated fairly and with respect. Her patience and expertise are exemplary qualities and it has been a pleasure working with her in the past and hopefully in the future, too! Our only regret is that our other home was out of her district and we could not use her to sell that home.

Hands down, Kathleen is the best dam Real Estate agent in Florida. She helped buy and sell a condo within a year with a substantial profit. Kathleen is a knowledgeable and professional RE agent period.
Mike worked tirelessly to help us find a home in Venice. Our requirements were very specific and our budget was capped so when Mike found us the house we wanted we decided to finance a part of the cost. Mike not only found us the house we really wanted he also assisted us by recommending a local lender that allowed us to obtain the financing we needed. All things said, Mike did a great job as he only showed us homes that fit our criteria and he helped us avoid homes of dubious quality. If you get a chance to work with Mike you should take it.
Lauren was great to work with! I loved her enthusiasm and eagerness to help me find the perfect tropical home! She was very patient with me, even after submitting three different home offers, and doing three home inspections. My beautiful, South Venice home is just minutes from the South Venice ferry. I could not be happier. I love having the beach so close and convenient for taking in a quick evening sunset. I cannot express how thankful I am to Lauren for taking care of all my paperwork. Her attention to detail was FABULOUS! It was difficult to continual sneak away from my full-time marketing job while still living in Minnesota. After meeting Lauren once, I completely trusted her to handle all of my home transaction needs. Being 1,600 miles away,I needed an agent I could respect and trust! Lauren went above and beyond, and attended all of my home inspections without me, and provided excellent referrals. Her referred mortgage company was a pleasure to work and qualified me in no time. The local insurance company was also a great fit for my needs. They gave me great home rates, and they now cover my car too!
Lauren was very helpful in the purchasing process of our new home in North Port. She was courteous, knowledgeable, and responsive to our needs. As information became available in the loan approval process, she kept us informed every step of the way. She was very professional on all occasions. We highly recommend her for your real estate needs
