What do Clients Say?

Our home buying experience was above and beyond our expectations with the help of Craig and Brenda Wilson and their team. Their knowledge of the Sarasota/Bradenton market (especially Lakewood Ranch) was extremely beneficial as we tried to decide where our perfect neighborhood and home would be for our family. Their expert knowledge of the entire buying process ensured that we reached a successful close and a "great deal" on our new home. They are easy to work with, patient, honest and full of integrity. We just can't recommend the Wilson Team enough!

Sean and Jen Russell, Lakewood Ranch

Our Lakewood Ranch buying experience with Craig and Brenda Wilson was exceptional. Their patience and total concern for our unique needs made us feel comfortable and confident during the entire transaction. Their knowledge of this particular market goes well beyond just the listings because they live and office here too. Whether buying or selling, The Wilson Home Team will represent you with integrity, and they will streamline the process to your total satisfaction. We simply can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our Florida real estate experience with Craig and Brenda. They are true professionals."

Les & Kris Cavicchi

We cannot begin to say enough about Craig and Brenda Wilson! They have earned our bragging rights, and without hesitation, I can say they will truly earn yours as well. My husband and I were new to the area and had no idea where to start. We drove around endlessly searching the area ourselves, but getting no where. Craig and Brenda took us under their wing and their knowledge of the Lakewood Ranch/Bradenton/Saraota area was beyond what we could ever have imagined. Their expertise of local builders and the building process in general, helped us to select the perfect location for our forever home. (Craig even showed up at our final walk-through to assist us with that.) They are, without a doubt, amazing people who really care about you. We could not have chosen a better team to work with!!

Debbie & Mike Driscoll

My husband and I were moving from the Philadelphia area to Sarasota and did not have any idea where to start, having never been to the area before. We discovered the Wilson Team online and placed a phone call. From the first moment we spoke, we realized we had picked the right people to help us find the perfect home. Brenda and Craig showed us different areas for us to contrast and compare. As we narrowed the search, they had a list of homes readily available to view. We asked and they gave us their view on comparison of house features all the while trying to balance our wants and needs. We would say that Brenda and Craig of the Wilson Team, without a doubt, were a pleasure to work with finding our new home. Having bought and sold 6 homes before this, we can honestly say this experience was the most enjoyable!

Brenda & Craig knew we had to sell our home quickly and still get top dollar for it. They did everything they could possibly do to speed it up from open houses, ads in papers to talking to other real estate agents. They even had a professional come in to rearrange furniture. Unfortunately, this was at a time that homes were not selling like hotcakes. It sold in six weeks at the price we wanted! This was by far our best home selling experience. Thank you so much Brenda & Craig.
