    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 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.

    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 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.

    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.
