Testimonials

    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.

    From Carol L.

    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 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

    From Rachel R.

    My husband and I were truly amazed at how fast Mike got our condo sold as it only took 4 days to find a buyer!  And on top that Mike got us top dollar – he actually sold our condo for more than the listing price!  My husband remarked “This is hard to believe, this only happens to other people”!  We like Mike!

    From: Jean T.

    Extremely pleased with the service Mike provided. From his suggestions of how to have the house ready for showings, his weekly updates and detailed MLS listing

    Since we lived out of town he made sure the home was clean and no mechanical issues were ever present. Definitely five stars.

     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.

    When I decided to sell my condo about a month ago (2018), Kathleen was recommended to me by someone who had rented from me for several winters. When we met for an interview, I was immediately impressed with her knowledge of the market and confidence. She gave me ideas on staging and most  importantly, explained the process thoroughly. I listed with her and within a day, she had produced the most beautiful flyer for distribution and scheduled an Open House just days later. There were many guests who viewed the condo and I was set up in the system to receive notifications each day of the activity that went on. I was not at all surprised that Kathleen was the agent who wrote a contract on the condo within 10 days – we actually closed two weeks later. She is such a go-getter in negotiation skills and represented both me as the seller and the couple who bought the condo in a most efficient and fair manner. Her communication skills were beyond excellent! I really liked the concept of her real estate company, Exit Realty, as well. I have experienced working with poor and ineffective agents on other properties, so this experience with Kathleen was very refreshing and quite a simple process. Kathleen is undoubtedly one of the best agents that Venice offers!
