Rigo is one of the most unprofessional business men to deal with that I have come across to date. Certainly not a man of his word, and willing to go back on it without hesitation. I had an agreement with him in May, 2017, and 6 days before the agreement was set to finalize he cancelled the deal. Then, after canceling the deal. There was no remorse, and neither was he apologetic, but continued to make excuses for his unprofessionalizm, and then in a very underhanded way turned the outcome upon my own actions. My advise to you, is to think twice before conducting business with him. Although, he is able to entice many with his words, he is certainly a piece of work to be examined.Ultimately, it will be your decision to conduct business with him, but ask yourself if you are ready to be taken advantage of first, then if the answer is yes, by all means move forward. But, don't say you weren't warned of the impending trickery and deceit. In the words of Oscar Wilde "Deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance."Don't fall victim to Rigo's romance! It will cost you!
My wife and I purchased a condo in April. Christina Miller and her assistant Socha Taylor were professional, friendly and a real pleasure to work with. They went out of their way to help us out, even after the sale closed. If we ever have real estate needs in Sarasota again we’ll be heading to Sarasota Bay Real Estate.
Very responsive and experts on the local area. Highly recommended. They went out of their way to search homes that met my criteria. Website is very helpful.
Evergreen Realty's LuAnne Wilson was my leasing agent for a Condo lease in the Sarasota Meadows. On move-in, the condo was in A-1 shape. Over the 8 years of the lease, all problems big (such as a flood in the utility room-on Sunday) and small (a plugged up toilet) were responded to immediately and the needed service was at my condo w/i a couple of hours. Lu Anne was always available to solve problems and offer information to a new resident on shopping, restaurants, and services.
About 3 or 4 years ago I started looking for a condo in the Sarasota area and by a process of elimination I started using Sarasota Bay Real Estate because I liked their web site the best. I contacted Christina and she was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and patient. I hemmed and hawed over the years about a condo purchase mostly because I wasn't sure when my wife was going to retire and if we could afford a second "home." So, I would look on-line, talk to Christina and when I was in Sarasota I had her show me a few units but I was just not ready to buy. All this changed in the summer of this year. My wife decided to retire and I once again began my search in earnest. I found a condo on-line that fit the bill and through Christina made an offer which was accepted. From then on she handled everything and I had no doubt that my wife and I were in good hands. She had a thorough inspection done which I was part of via face time and the final walk through which was also via face time. We put our entire trust in her and were not disappointed. Over the years I have bought and sold many properties and she was by far the best real estate agent I have ever dealt with. We recommend her highly.
Christina was an amazing and extremely knowledgable realtor. I gained trust in her from the very first conversation I had with her over the phone. My husband and I live in NY and we decided to start looking for a second home to purchase to prepare for our future retirement. For most people this can be very stressful but we had nothing to stress over because Christina had everything lined up for us and really understood what we were looking for and we were only in Sarasota for a few hours and were new home owners. She hit the nail on the head for us without ever even meeting us but she has tremendous insight just by speaking with me over the phone. She has continued to remain in contact with us even after closing and is always available to answer questions. Our closing was amazing as well, everything was done by mail and Christina also completed our walk thru prior to closing date given that we couldn't make it back down there. We trust her whole heartedly and we made a friend for life:)
Ronnie Caron was on the losing end for a buyer who wanted to purchase my home in April 2015.As a way to spite us,she refused to turn over the release to my agent so that we could put the house back on the market. She lied and said she could'nt reach them all the while she had the form in her pocket. Avoid her at all costs.
Beware of using Evergreen! Luanne is very unprofessional. Discriminates and talks down to people! This is not someone you want to have to deal with when renting your home! Disaster!
What a wonderful experience I had with Evergreen Realty. I had a property in Sarasota in which LuAnne Wilson handled the rental of (for a very reasonable rate). I live in central Florida and can't be as hands on as it needed. LuAnne took care of everything from screening tenants, collecting rent in a timely manner, resolving maintenance issues, and doing all the move out procedures with returning the deposit etc. I couldn't have been happier and highly recommend LuAnne Wilson for real estate dealings.
I have used Sarasota bay real estate co twice in the last 1 1/2 years and have been extremely pleased with the results. Especially with Christina who has always been there helping and answering any questions I had. I would strongly recommend Sarasota Bay as your agent if you are in the market.
