All of our agents here at the Phyllis Frankel Realty Group are top rated. One in particular stood out in this particular instance. Here what he had to say: "To Whom It May Concern, I recently completed a home purchase in the St. Augustine area through Phyllis Frankel Realty, and I want to commend the agency and particularly my personal agent, Tim. He was exemplary through all phases of the transaction; locating the right home, negotiating the right price, and handling the closing details. I was in Florida for only 2 days, and submitted information requests through the Frankel Realty and other websites. The next morning, Tim phoned me promptly to extend his assistance in helping me find a home. Without having time to qualify me as a serious buyer, Tim nevertheless spent the entire day driving me around looking at properties. He listened carefully to my requirements, so we wasted little time in finding the right home. Once found, Tim negotiated a $5,000 reduction in the purchase price, even though the home had just recently been reduced by $10,000. In addition, Tim negotiated very favorable terms in the way of a home protection plan, repair allowance, and other fee reductions. I would have paid the full asking price, but Tim correctly predicted that he could save me additional money. Once the contract was signed, Tim managed the entire closing process on my behalf. Since I live out of state, he took complete control and served as my local representation. Tim personally handled all logistics, including attending inspections and ensuring all closing documents were completed. I highly recommend Tim to anyone seeking a dedicated teal estate professional who will invest significant time and commitment to their house search. Tim put as much effort into the process as if it were his own house. Sincerely, David Theony"

I work for Federated Management Group and have for many years. FMG will and does give back FULL deposits if YOU return the home in the condition you find it in. A Tenants perception of "normal wear and tear, Holes in the walls, writing and crayon all over the walls, carpets full of kool aid and juice stains, nasty mold and mildew in showers and toilets, grass and weeds up to your knees as well as all the trash and garbage the tenant decides they don't want to deal with left in the house is NOT normal wear and tear unless you normally live like pigs. Unfortunately the number of homes left to us in this condition by Tenants is astounding. These People are the ones that scream the loudest, "unfair treatment"! When I retire it is my goal to start a website of some type that would allow all Property Management Companies to show the Tenant ledgers full of late fees and bounced checks, as well as pictures of the damages they do to Investors Properties so that both sides of the story can be told, and also to protect other Property Management companies from being put in the same position of renting to these same types of Tenants. It is astounding to me the number of people who hide under the cloak of "anonymous" when slamming a Company and their reputation and are too chicken to use their name and the address they rented in order that the company involved could look over their complaint and see if in fact a mistake was made. I can only guess it is because they in fact are the ones that do the most damage. I can't help but notice that the 5 star reviews do in fact have actual past Tenant names. All the negative and nasty complaints are "anonymous" - that's pretty funny. By the way, I am Bert with FMG, and this 5 star review is also NOT FAKE!
I love Real Estate Reviews. Cause the MAJORITY of reviews are going to be from "Victims." Those who wouldn't pay their rent cause they'd spent their money on luxuries (I have come across this while working at grocery stores as well), only to get mad at the Real Estate Company for serving them a 3 day notice. I hope you realize, they have bills too. Crayz, I know. I work at a real estate company as only an office assistant so tenants generally don't get angry with me which I'm thankful, tenants can be vengeful and absolutely hateful people, cause they think the real estate companies are evil rich people sitting on a throne of wealth laughing at property work orders like it's some kind of joke. I agree on one thing. I have spoken with this gentlemen and he can be hard to talk to or even communicate with but he has very high work ethics and as long as someone doesn't complain about there issue 8 times a day and has some patience, he does get to it. He's also always willing to lend a helping hand to those who really need it. And I don't like pointing fingers, but no... he's not racist. I get annoyed cause he goes out of his way NOT to be racist to the point of ridiculousness.
