Hi Mike and Anita,
I can’t help but think about you guys all the time, because we love our new house! It is the perfect fit for us (and all the animals)!
I am so grateful for you guys sticking with me until we found the right one. I don’t know about you, but I was starting to lose faith that we were ever going to find something that met my long list of criteria and in my price range. I am sure it was trying for you to let me figure out for myself that what I really wanted a quality house in a good neighborhood rather than a bargain deal. It is such a relief to not have to deal with fixing or replacing anything. We have had no problems since we moved in. I am continually surprised with the high quality of the appliances, tile, cabinets, counters, pool, lanai, everything!. Thank you Mike for being my substitute for the inspection. It was reassuring to have someone I trust to be here and able to answer all my questions about results. I feel confident that I won’t need to replace anything in the near future.
This neighborhood is wonderful. I have already had three neighbors come over to introduce themselves and offer their support and advice about local services (from art shows to tai chi to vets). Logan (my dog) and I go for a walk every morning at the beautiful community preserve about two blocks away.
I have a beautiful view of the pool from my bedroom window. I go swimming every day and enjoy looking at all my beautiful trees as I float around. It’s the life I was dreaming of when I was wrapped in my coat in Baltimore last winter. Our “great room” is perfect. I can cook, work on the computer and watch TV all at the same time.
We will always consider you both our first friends in Florida. Thank you so much.
Lauren Ward is a perky professional. she was extremely helpful and as excited as I was when we found my dream house. I would only want to by a house from someone as enthusiastic as Lauren.
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!
Kim E. Lee was the ideal Realtor for me to work with in my circumstances. I recommend her in the highest possible terms.
She was an outstanding guide at all stages of the buying process. First, she helped me in envisioning solutions to some unique financial situations that I thought might prevent me from buying. Suddenly, what I didn’t think was possible….was possible! Then she connected me with her amazing network of knowledgeable and capable professionals who assisted me through the entire process. And along the way, she even “talked me off the ledge” a few times as the details started piling up. And at the end, there she was, walking me to my car with a reassuring “Congratulations!”.
You’ll be in the best of hands if you work with Kim E. Lee as your Realtor. Five Stars!!! ~ Rick H., Bradenton, FL
Lauren was wonderful in helping with the purchase of my condo. I haven’t bought any real estate in 29 years. She walked me through step by step and answered all my questions. She was honest with me and advised me well. She negotiated some extras in the contract. I took possession in less than three weeks.
Lauren Ward has the knowledge and professionalism were looking for in a realtor to sell our home. Our home was sold in a very timely manner, actually quicker than we believed it would sell. We are very grateful Lauren walked every step with us. Her positive attitude through all the negotiations made this a pleasure. Again we are so glad to have had Lauren through this experience.
Lauren was awesome. She really knows what she is doing, very knowledgeable regarding every aspect of her job as a realtor. She was very honest and understanding. She never made me feel pressured. I searched for a very long time and several times felt like just giving up. She was very encouraging. She also had a knowledge of other professionals and their work when we needed their assistance prior to closing. I have and will continue to recommend Lauren to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.
Dear Mike and Anita,
It’s a pleasure to write this letter to thank you for all the hard work you did in the process of buying our home in Grand Palm. You were always quick to return calls, answer questions, and advise us on matters concerning the purchase. It is no exaggeration that closing went smoothly and you led us through all things we wanted to know about living in Grand Palm! Through it all you were a realtor who was going to be a good friend. You went above and beyond and we would certainly recommend your services to anyone that is interested in buying or selling a home.
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.
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.
