What do Clients Say?

Katina is the best real estate agent that we have ever used. In our case Katina contacted us in December 2015 and discussed our requirements/timeframe for homes in the Sarasota Florida area. Over the next 2+ months Katina provided listings/neighborhoods online/email that met our requirements. We narrowed the list down to 10 homes and traveled to Sarasota for a long weekend in Feb 2016. Katina spent 3 days taking us to the listings and we signed a contract on Day 3 of the weekend. This exercise was painless (due to her competence and great personality)!! She knows the area extremely well and is able to walk you through the purchasing process step by step. I would recommend Katina to anyone.

She had lined up all the showings we asked for very quickly and added one she thought that we may have an interest. That was the bought! It was a good experience.

Ken and Katina were the only agents that followed up on my initial house shopping trip. They listened to what my requirements were and then provided me with a list of possibilities. On my second visit to Florida I was shown several homes and on the second day I put in an offer which was accepted. With Ken and Katina as my agents I knew they were working for me and really cared that I find the right home in the correct location. I highly recommend them to be your Real Estate Agent of choice.

Ken and Katina were extremely professional and very knowledgable about finding me a perfect place for my need. They were on the ball with any questions that arose during the process of finding me a new home in the Lakewood ranch area. They had excellent knowledge of the fair market value of the home I was most interested in and gave me wonderful advice on what I should be looking for and what steps to take, and what to expect during the process. Since this was my first purchase, I was very unsure what to expect, but Ken And Katina made me feel very comfortable, and I felt at ease and confident about the purchase. They made the process very smooth and fun. They defiantly know what they are doing and I wouldn't hesitate for one second to recommend them to my family, friends, or anyone who is looking to buy a home

While planning to relocate from NYC to Florida, we happened upon Ken and Katina and we were very lucky to do so. They sent various listings to us via email and found many houses for us to see. We made all the necessary arrangements to travel back and forth and they were both so wonderful with us. They took us to see each house and were patient with us as we made our decision. We found the perfect house and are now getting ready to move. We are so thankful to them both for making this whole process so easy and painless for us. We have never felt like we were working with realtors, but instead, felt like he had made new friends!!!
