What do Clients Say?

We started our home search several months ago and were shown some nice properties by some very competent agents but never felt that the properties were a perfect fit for us. We met Jessika Arman, and as soon as we explained our requirements she immediately knew what we were looking for and within two days she found a perfect match for us. The closing went very smooth and remarkably fast mainly because Jessika knew exactly what to do to facilitate the transaction. She made sure all the parties involved had everything they needed to move the process along smoothly. We will gladly recommend Jessika to anyone considering buying or selling a property and will insist on using her services should we need them in the future.

Jessika Arman did an excellent job in marketing our property. So much so, that we were able to achieve the highest selling price in our neighborhood since the downturn in the market and in only 37 days! If you are considering listing, we highly recommend listing with Jessika!

As foreign buyers, Pamela and I were fortunate to meet Jessika Arman. We wanted someone attuned to our needs who had our best interests at heart. She led us through the different procedures and achieved things others said were not possible. For every problem, she had a solution and there were many. She always refused to be beaten and in the end, she had helped us achieve our dream home in America. We are extremely grateful to her and we have become good friends. Even after the sale had been completed, she is still helping us. Her attention to detail, her professionalism and her persistence sets her apart from others. We would recommend her to anyone considering a purchase in Sarasota, Florida USA.

5 Star: Lise L. "I worked with Jessika Arman to sell my home and really can’t say enough good things about her. She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months). She answered every question and explained every form and every part of the process clearly. I highly recommend her."
