Cheryl Crawford recommends Russel Hartung

Russel was professional in every way. Ours was a long-distance transaction and it was seamless. Every text and phone call was answered in a timely fashion and Russel made it easy for us to sell our home even though we were not on-scene. There is no doubt that his knowledge and professionalism and sincere friendly manner are all assets to Next Home Advisors.

Seller of carriage home in Avalon Bay community

I interviewed 5 realtors on July 9th after flying down the day before from Philly. My plan was to get the listing to an agent I felt comfortable with but also one that new the market,especially it being off season.Russ seemed like the right guy from the beginning,knowledgeable,ready to put it on the market for the price I was looking for,which was a price that we agreed was very much spot on. He kept me posted on all inquiries to the property,and with the offers as they came in. We were in good hands and we were confident that the property was priced right that it would go quick.It did,in 2 weeks and Russ made the transfer seamless. Would gladly refer him to others making a move.

Bought a Condo home in 2019 in Iona, Fort Myers, FL.
Local knowledge:
Process expertise:
Negotiation skills:
My wife and I had the good fortune of working with Eric Grainger during our recent search for an investment property in Southwest Florida.

We were conducting the search from over 1500 miles away (in Maine) -- and, as such, it was of the utmost importance that we were working with a real estate professional who was knowledgeable about the area, possessed superior/responsive/digital communication skills, was a shrewd negotiator, and was always willing to go the extra mile to assist us in filling in the blind spots that inevitably pop up while trying to purchase a home from across the country.

Via phone and internet, Grainger worked quickly and efficiently to understand exactly what we were seeking in a property. He augmented our initial list of contender properties to include other similar properties that fit our search criteria, and he was always available on a moment's notice to answer all questions (even though we were often working during unconventional hours).

Grainger was always willing to visit properties to take custom videos for us, in an effort to help us get a more complete sense for the feel of a home than was possible through the listing agent's description and photos.

I made two last-minute, quick-turnaround trips to Florida to view homes and, both times, Grainger rearranged his schedule to accommodate my needs. He absolutely went above-and-beyond during a series of truly marathon home-hunting days, during which his depth of market knowledge was put to excellent use in helping me navigate the local real estate scenario.

From the internet search, to the home visits, to formulating offer strategies, through to the inspections, requesting repairs, final walk-through, and the actual closing - he was there (often in person) representing our interests from over a thousand miles away.

PLUS Grainger has remained our ally after the closing - even assisting us with the concerns that are bound to pop up when taking ownership of a property in another state (while not being present). Are doors locked? AC functioning? Water turned off after utilities have been switched into our name? He has given us peace of mind for all of these (and more) facets of the post-home-buying experience, too.

Bottom line: Eric Grainger consistently exceeded our expectations throughout the entire process - top shelf all the way!

Rudy Vega recommends Jerry Jackson


I've had the pleasure of working with Jerry for about 9 years now. When I needed help looking for property he made it very effortless for me. This means a lot as I have plenty going on in a days work being a business owner. Jerry did what he said he was going to do, asked the right questions and most important is punctual.
All around Jerry is a good person and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a hard worker.

Thanks Jerry!

Megan Deichl recommends Jane Podowski


My husband and I decided to look at a few houses down in Florida in the Cape Coral area. We were not 100% certain we were ready to make the decision to buy a home there, and thought looking at some houses might help us decide - down the road. We explained that to Jane when we first went there, however things changed for us very quickly and we put Jane through some pretty hard paces! It is hard to buy a home from a long distance, and Jane stayed with us through all the ups and downs, last minute requests, drop ins, and decision changes without missing a beat. She is very knowledgeable of the area, and very patient! We are very grateful for her assistance!

Eric Banco recommends Jason Jakus

Real Estate was new to me and I’m lucky to have found a Real Estate agent that knows his stuff. Jason was very knowledgable and helped me navigate through buying our first home. He negotiated a great price and made sure the transaction went smoothly. Our first home purchase was a success because we had Jason working for us.

Jessica Quijada recommends Mabel Pelton

Mabel is the best! My husband and I got so lucky that we got in contact with her. We spend months trying to find the right home and we then decide to reach out to Mabel and it only took her two houses to find us the perfect forever home. She is the absolute sweetest and really went above and beyond for us. She always stayed on top of everything and made this such a smooth process for us. Highly recommend her.

Tracy Walker recommends Russel Hartung

Russell has been great to work with. He has been very responsive to all of our phone calls, e-mails, questions and concerns regarding our long distance house shopping/buying experience. He had house showings lined up for our brief visit to Cape Coral as well as met our on the fly requests for additional showings. He has followed up with us thru our long distance closing and is still in touch thru the relocation process. I definitely feel that working with Russell improved our house shopping/buying process considerably.

Susan Hess recommends John McNeill

I would highly recommend choosing John to work with in your search for a home! We are from Michigan and what could have been a very complicated process was not. John was the listing realtor for a condo we saw online and so I called to inquire. We did not buy that condo, but from the first phone conversation, John was so willing to answer questions, send information for other properties and check out ones that I sent him...quick to return calls, emails and texts. Very professional , very helpful, kind and knowledgeable about the area and the real estate business.
We are so glad we had him working with us on our search!!
