Ashley Hopkins, Asset Manager
I just wanted to let you guys know that I sent an email to the Regional Area Manager and Broker Management to let them know that you do exceptional work for Freddie Mac.  Just wanted to recognize you for all the hard work you put in.  Thanks,

Sarah J. Morris, PA
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for all your hard work and effort to get this property closed in the record SHORT TIME that you did. What a great accomplishment. I recognize you all worked very hard on behalf of Buyer to get this done ASAP! Your hard work and attention to detail and ability to think outside the box made this happen. How you got all the stars to align at exactly the right time is beyond awesome.   I have worked with a lot of really good teams throughout the years but have to say that all three of you rank right up there with the best of the best!  I applaud your dedication to getting the job done and your ability to deal with less than ideal circumstances. You were always pleasant, knowledgeable and a real joy to work with.
With respect,

“Thank you for your help in the sale of my home. Your kindness and caring meant a lot to me. Enjoy these gift cards you deserve a night out to relax. The buyers would have liked to have you on their side – you worked for me.”

Quote in the News-Press 3/24/09 By DICK HOGAN
“Josh Bevington, an agent with John McWilliams and Tom Buckley & Associates in Lee County, said he sold 33 homes last month and the most in demand are lower-end houses. That means a lot of sales in Cape Coral and Lehigh Acres. “

Mary M. (Fort Myers Beach)
“Over the weekend we had an accepted offer on our property and a CA$H deal that will close in 6 weeks or less! We consider ourselves very fortunate in this market climate to sell the property so quickly and fortunate that we me Josh Bevington. He was great throughout the transaction! “

“Guys – Great speaking with you yesterday. You really are dialed in to the SFM market and helped us out a great deal. We owe you all a beer! I look forward to seeing each of you again.

On a personal note, I want to say how happy I was with the customer service and market knowledge Josh provided me as a home-buyer. He is a true pro and I am glad to see him settling in with you so well. I will be talking him up and McWilliams Buckley as a whole any time friends ask me about making purchases of their own. All the best,”

D. King
“I want to thank you for all your time and effort. You have continued to show me how a true real estate professional does his job. Even my lenders where impressed with yout thoughtfulness handling this transaction. It’s so refreshing to know that someone is working for you, instead of against you. Having dealt with you in the past, I knew that I couldn’t go wrong asking you to represent me. Again Josh a big thank you for a job well done. “

Ray and Jan
“Josh, Jan and I continue to enjoy our new home. We left for a few weeks but are now back until the middle of May. We say often to ourselves how thankful we are that we got together with you and you guided us to our dream Florida home. If you ever need a reference or would like to show our home to potential buyers in the area please feel free to call us.

Amy Mullholland, Estero, Florida
“I am 200% satisfied with Patti’s service, and I will unconditionally recommend her to my friends. I have already referred someone to her.”

Ed Ramos, Land Broker, Inc./Ramos Builders, Lehigh Acres, Florida
“Patti’s professionalism was refreshing.”

Alan Dozier, Estero, Florida
“Patti was outstanding from start to finish. We were always informed, treated in a professional manner, and felt that Patti had our best interest in each step of the buying process.”

Michael Bedigian, Keller Williams Platinum Realty, Fort Myers, Florida
“Patti was great! She was always pleasant, professional & personable. It was a pleasure to work with her.”

Ferdinand & Marie Molle, Woonsocket, Rhode Island
“Patti Pietroniro is the best agent we have dealt with ever. Thank you, Patti.”

Matilda Sunderland, Miromar Lakes, Florida
“Patti did a great job, and has a great personality for this business. She does not sit back and is extremely aggressive to get the job done.”

Eileen & John Wagner, Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina
“This was an extremely difficult closing and without Patti’s professionalism, attention to detail and day to day support and perseverance this closing would not have taken place. We dealt with other realtors and they didn’t come close to Patti’s expertise. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to express our feelings. My husband and I feel that Patti is a definite asset to your organization.”

Marisol & Jeimer Pena, Fort Myers, Florida
“Patti is an extraordinary agent. She was always available to answer any concerns we may have had.”

Jim & Laura Lauri, Boca Raton, Florida
Patti, thanks for your help! Selling real estate is always challenging and in this current market environment it was even more challenging.”

Kathy Stobb, Realtor, Rawlings Realty, Fort Myers, Florida
“Patti was a complete professional and went above and beyond her job, which I also do. It was a joy working with someone who cared about her job and her clients as much as I do…especially knowing that she is a working mother as I! I would be thrilled to work with her again.”

Ford & Magda Cooper, Punta Gorda, Florida
“We had our home on the market for 5 months with two other realtors. The results were frustrating and not a single offer was made. Neither agent wanted to hold open houses and relyed primarily on advertising. I called Patti whose name I saw on a flyer a couple of months earlier, and I regret that I did not sign with her from the beginning. She held two open houses and had an offer in hand. We made a nice profit and would have done even better if we had hired Patti from the start. We certainly would highly recommend Patti to anyone who wants an attractive, hard-working and extremely energetic Realtor who knows how to get the job done.”

Joe & Brenda Albano
Hi Patti, It was so very nice to hear your voice yesterday – and the news you brought!  Thank you for the happiness that you expressed to me for our sake.  Which is greater in you – your professionalism or your kindness?  I’ll never know!
Patti, there is no way to thank you enough for handling our sale (again!) in such a great way.  Certainly, a short sale is not something about which we are proud.  We hung on longer than we should have, but had no choice in the end.  You made it something that we could do, taking on all the gory details.  Do you ever question the value of the work you do?  Don’t!  With love and thanks.
