I first made contact with Maryjo during a visit to the island in 2012. We discussed the market in Boca Grande and I told her to keep me updated with listings. She sent me updated listings and market reports for six years until we came back down to the island with the intent to purchase a condominium in 2018. Maryjo and her husband Pat showed us several properties over a two week period, responding to our needs to see all the properties we could in a short period of time, within our budget and criteria. We decided to make an offer on a property before we left the island and consulted with Maryjo about our strategy to bid. During the offer process, Maryjo displayed her knowledge of the Boca Grande market, helping us come up with a offer and counteroffer. We ended up buying the property for a price we felt was "a good deal" considering the market is very fluid and prices nearing all time highs. We attribute our success to Maryjos' negotiating skills, market expertise, and tremendous ability to communicate.
Maryjo was just as helpful during our period of securing the mortgage, (recommending a local mortgage company), and assisting us with inspections, an insurance company, and HOA paperwork. After the sale Maryjo and Pat have regularly kept in touch offering any help we need to get our new home ready.
