We were impressed with Tina at an Open House and hired her to sell our property and helped us find a new home. Very professional, honest and friendly. -The Christensens
Tina was a consummate professional throughout the entire process. She was 100% honest and worked hard to make our sale happen. -Greg and Ann Pepe
Glen and Tina fielded hundreds of questions, took hundreds of phone calls, and do so with calm professionalism that made us feel comfortable and ready to buy. -Ken and Mary Ann Vinton
Tina was very nice and very professional from the beginning until the end of the real estate transaction. -The Cavalettis
Glen and Tina are exceptional agents, and a great team. Glen is so detail oriented and knowledgeable with Florida real estate law, which was so helpful for us coming from Missouri. Tina is a “go getter.” Gets things done without delay, which is so refreshing today. Their experience with years of living in the area was so helpful. We enjoyed working with Tina and Glen and hope to work with them again very soon. -Jeff and Laura Nichols
