I knew I wanted someone hardworking, pleasant, and knowledge, and Ashley is all of that! She was an amazing asset to have on our side when we bought our home on Siesta Key. She is extremely hard-working, knows the area, and wasn't afraid to ruffle a few feathers when a snag came up. She follows up, takes initiative, and answers her phone! I wouldn't hesitate to work with Ashley on future transactions.

Lafe Bianche assisted us in the search for our new condo. He was very helpful, professional and courteous. He always answered our messages and calls quickly. Follow up was extraordinary. Before we made the offer Lafe and David seemed to put a lot of thought and research into what we should offer. I would highly recommend Lafe and Zachos Realty.

I don't know where to begin. The cornerstone of any professional relationship is customer service. James was nothing short of everything my wife and I wanted in an agent. His effort was tireless, and his comprehensive knowledge of the market was incredibly helpful. From remodeling details to contractual issues, he was a resource at every step of the process. James always made time for us no matter what.

My wife and I couldn't be happier. Not only did James help us get the home we were truly looking for in Southgate, the location we desired most, he continued to follow up after the close just to see how we were doing. We couldn't recommend James enough.

The best part of the whole transaction? We gained a great friend that we think the world of. Thank you James.

James assisted me with my first investment purchase. It was a short sale property and he set the proper expectations with me that it may or may not be accepted and that I may have to wait for months to close. Luckliy my offer was accepted and we closed with a tenant in place! He walked me through every step of the transaction and was on top of all of the details. His communication was exceptional. He met with my inspector and went above and beyond in every aspect of the transaction. I can't say enough about his high degree of integrity and professionalism. I will definelty refer my friends and family to him and use him for my future real estate needs. Thank you James!

J. Portman was very efficient in helping me sell my home. He kept in touch with me so I knew what was happening day to day. He gained my trust so that I believed he was working far beyond regular hours to help me. I will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Thank you James.
