Dear Nancy and Kevin, Just a short note to say a big thank you from both Jonathan and myself for your excellent work in bringing together what proved to be a particularly difficult closure. We always knew you were the right people for the job and you have never hesitated to go above and beyond. If ever we can recommend you, we will be happy to do so. Best regards, Jill and Jonathan Ludbrook

Kevin was very thorough in presenting comp estimates. Helped guide us to properly show the home. He navigated the tire kickers and made the real offers compete for highest price. Would recommend.

Kevin came highly recommended to my wife and me for our search for a condo on or close to Boca Grande. Kevin spent time understanding what was important to us and provided us with several properties to review and provide feedback. We quickly were able to identify several properties to view.

Kevin sold our house for us on Don Pedro Island several years ago. we were extremely pleased with the service he gave us and the negotiating skill he exercised to get us the best price possible while respecting the buyer. we plan to use Kevin to represent us when we purchase another place in Boca Grande.

Kevin has sold two of our homes in Boca Grande, FL. The first in a deflated market with some rather unusual circumstances attached to the home, the other in a matter of two weeks! His creativity in marketing our second home was first-rate. I’ve seen the method duplicated twice within 3 months following the sale.

Kevin has proven to be an extraordinary realtor that continues to impress with his attention to detail, local knowledge, and an ability to always keep the clients best interests first and foremost. Specifically, he has sold me two homes, both at what turned out be a “better than market” price. He also listed and sold a property of mine at a time when nothing much was selling on our island.

Kevin stepped in to help us purchase a vacation home on Palm Island when our original Michael Saunders & Company realtor decided to go on vacation and left us hanging in the middle of the negotiations. He handled the negotiations as a transaction broker and I found him to be fair and honest in his dealings with us. He was the cunsummate professional and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

When dealing with Kevin he became much more than just a Realtor. After the closing when I needed a boat,ladder or even dinner Kevin was always there to help me get the things that I needed. He will be there for you long after the commission is paid. I would highly recommend using Kevin as your Realtor in the Boca Grande area.

Kevin understood my timeline to sell and assisted me with preparing my home in order to reach my goals. I found him to be responsive, professional and well versed in the local real estate market. My experience with Kevin was truly first class.
