There are many things we can say about the high quality of service we provide our clients – both buyers and sellers – but none would be as credible as testimonials from some of our clients themselves. We believe they indicate our experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much we enjoy helping clients with their real estate needs.

Tim and Ellie,
Thank you for your enthusiasm in getting our listing in Coquina Sands which was only out matched by your professionalism and negotiation skills. We truly believe that no other Realtor would have reached a better outcome for us including selling price and terms. You were there to guide us through all phases of the sale and were always prompt in returning our calls and answering our questions. You exceeded our expectations – and I was a professional real estate agent!

You also were and are instrumental in giving the entire Coquina Sands neighborhood it’s rightful place in importance, pricing, lot size and location value. By watching you accomplish this, you gained our respect, hence our listing. Also, thank you for your help in making the purchase of our new home.

We wish you continued success.

Thank you again,
Sedat and Jo Ann Yamak

Dear Tim and Ellie,
Thank you for a job well done selling our house in the Moorings. We found that your thoughtful and informed market evaluation, directed marketing strategies, strong internet presence, considerable experience and overall professionalism were key to getting the house sold at a reasonable price and along a timeline that made sense to us.

We liked your timely updates and continued feedback on marketing and showings. We also found that when it came time to negotiate the contract, you maintained a careful balance of being helpful when we wanted help but letting us make the key decisions when it was appropriate.

We felt entirely comfortable with you and Ellie throughout the process and would strongly recommend you to anyone considering listing a Naples property.

Thanks and best regards, Cathy & Peter Davis 

Tim and Ellie did a great job for us in framing the market for us and finding us the right home at the right price. In a very short period of time they were able to manage our expectations, validating what they could, but professionally counseling on what was realistic within our circumstances. As a result we found the perfect home for us and negotiated a contract in less than a week.

Once again, I would like to express my appreciation for Ellie’s dedication and unflinched concern for her client’s welfare. Aside from her diligent and efficient efforts to complete the task, Ellie is noticeably committed to a high order of business ethics.

In matters of financial negotiation and settlement, it is often difficult for the client to distinguish if the intentions of those involved are honest and direct or spurred by unprincipled opportunism. It certainly was not easy for me to always separate the good and bad motivations. Nevertheless, my wife and I always felt comfortable that Ellie’s advice was founded on facts as she understood them and more importantly bound by truthfulness.

Ellie’s sincerity leaves a lasting impression far beyond just her accomplishment of the business at hand. In my view, her good works will encourage a very favorable image for your office in the long term.

We want you to know that we have never had an agent who has displayed the professionalism, contract knowledge, and dedication to the job at hand, as we have seen in Ellie. She has provided us with timely information on current market conditions, detailed explanations of the contract clauses and implications, options available to us at each decision point, kept us informed (sometimes hourly updates!) on all incoming information relative to the sale.

During the course of the contract, we have had a number of unusual circumstances caused by the buyer and his agent, which resulted in Ellie having to put in considerably more time and effort on our contract than we ever expected. But through all this, we have never once doubted Ellie’s abilities or her loyalty to us. Ellie has represented us exactly as we asked. We admire Ellie’s ability to to deal with difficult matters in an upfront and professional manner. She will continue to be our agent now and in whatever real estate matters we have in the future.

Jody & Arnold Sartori – Home Sellers

Just a note to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed working with you on Domain Terrace. That’s one of the things that’s kept me in the business for so long – I will very much look forward to showing your listings and working together on another transaction soon. It is sheer pleasure to work with fellow professional such as yourself. If every agent I worked with was as pleasant and ‘on top’ of things to work with as you, ‘Oh what a wonderful world it would be! 
Debbie Wicker, Realtor

I would like to let you know that you  are doing a great job with our home search, and we appreciate everything that has taken place so far. We feel very positive about how this will turn out, because we see that our interest is in your hands. Thank you for being the professional that you are and making us feel comfortable at the same time.

Sam Mcleary & Melissa

I have had the opportunity to work with Ellie through several mutual clients. Ellie is one of those genuine professionals who puts her client’s interests ahead of her own. She is comfortable dealing with high net worth clients and understands their needs.

Nigel Fullick, Loan Officer

Just wanted to let you know that in two weeks Pat and I will be full time residents of Naples. It would not have happened without the great work you did for us three and a half years ago. Our heartfelt thanks to you and Ellie.

Bob and Pat

Thank you for guiding us in the right direction. You are a very nice person and made me feel at ease from the beginning to the end. Thank you for doing a great job for us and being you.


Thank you for everything you did for us during our new home purchase. Your professionalism, demeanor and genuine caring about my family meant the world to me.


Thank you for helping us find a house. I really like it and the neighborhood!
