Pete Corbino recommends Valerie Sablowski


This is my recommendation for Val. It is difficult to write a recommendation when you have received service above and beyond.

At some point you begin to take for granted to following:

Teamwork: Val and Celeste work as an incredible team - they are both informed and up to date on the status of a contract. Whether Val or Celeste is your lead they compliment each other and work together...period. If the lead has something important to address the partner has their back.

Attention to detail: Each part of the process was scrutinized and reviewed leaving nothing to chance. Parties were well informed about each step of the process.

Advocacy: This should probably be considered the top point. Val tirelessly advocates for the client - looking to their best interests in every situation (we had them). This is priceless in an agent and it doesn’t always exist!

Professionalism: And to thIs point a consideration of the details - looking at the situation presented, considering the options and then thinking about the best way to move forward. Frequent updates and feedback. Sending of listings and trying to zero in on what the client wants. We were not easy to figure out but Val patiently worked toward figuring out what we wanted.
Empathy: Was available to talk me off the ledge about a few issues.

Expertise: Thorough knowledge of real estate and knows how to find answers when questions come up.

Jennifer & Steve G. recommend Mariola Alder

Mariola helped make our dream home a reality. She went above and beyond throughout the entire process from looking at home, to helping make sure we had the necessary documents required to even after closing making sure we were happy and things were going well. She was a life-line helping us purchase our first home in Florida. Since we were new to the process she helped guide us through the various steps. We would have lost without her help and can not say enough about what a wonderful real estate agent she is. We were so fortunate to have had the pleasure of working with her and now are so grateful and excited with our new dream home!!

My husband Tom and I were selling an investment property in Port Charlotte. Michael made sure that the house was ready for market by doing the extra things to make it look excellent. We got a contract within 24 hours. Michael's knowledge with pricing the property just right made it an easy and quick sale. I would highly recommend Michael as a realtor.

Missy was referred to us and she was extremely accommodating to our schedule, as we were in the area for a limited time. She listened to what we were looking for and set our expectations at just the right level. Missy was able to walk us through the purchasing process for this state and stayed on top of everything.

Maureen and Jack Luiszer recommend Kristy Heitl

Retired Corporate Executives

Kristy is a pleasure to work with. She is persistent, knowledgeable and professional. As a seller, it is important to receive feedback from each and every house showing. Kristy would give us immediate and detailed feedback. We never had to ask her. If there were objections she was ready with the explanation or, better yet, alleviate them in advance. We highly recommend Kristy as your salesperson. She gets the job done and the house sold.

For anyone looking for a realtor in the North Port/ Venice/Port Charlotte area I would highly recommend Stephanie.

She is meticulous in her preparations and we found her most helpful in the process of both buying and selling. Very knowledgable and ready to do anything to make the process easier.

Daniel M. Tramuta recommends Carlos Saramago

Higher Education Administrator

We are in the final stages of building and closing on a brand new home within Islandwalk in Venice, Florida.

Our primary residence is in Western New York so being over 1,200 miles away during a time when you're building can be unsettling.

Well - not to worry - we have Carlos
Saramago by our side. Caring, confident, extremely competent, task-master - these are just a few of this man's strengths. Carlos had communicated with us weekly throughout this process - sending videos, texts and emails with updates on the build progress.

They do not come better than this man - the consummate professional - period.

Dan & Laurie Tramuta
