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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    From Kathy R.

    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.

    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.
