Sitting at the closing table as a first time home buyer is easily one of the most exciting moments of your life. Getting there though, can be one of the most confusing, stressful, and heartbreaking experiences of your life, making you doubt your quest will ever come to fruition. That is unless you choose the right realtor. Someone that not only knows the basics of his trade, anyone can fill out paperwork, but possesses a wide array of intangible skills that allows them incredible knowledge of the market they service.

Otis and I were searching for a new home to purchase in the Port St Lucie area. Fortunately for us we contacted Century 21, Colean Team and met a very professional and personable agent. Brad and his "team" spent many hours acquainting us with the Port St Lucie market. Brad and all of his "team" were true professionals. He was patient, realistic and knowledgeable in helping us select the "right" home for us. He never once "pressured" us on any of the properties he showed to us. He kept telling us , "When you find the right property, you will know it" and sure enough, eventually, we found the right property . We consider him a very qualified agent and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell and anyone dealing with him will certainlly concur with our opinion. Thanks Brad and "The Colean Team."

RE: Short sale
My wife and I would like to extend our gratitude for your hard work, commitment, and dedication throughout the “short sale” process. Due to several unfortunate events, we were unable to keep our home and with the declining real estate market and poor economy, the stress and credit implications of a foreclosure was overpowering. We visited numerous realty offices prior to yours, none of which had the knowledge or high interest in assisting us during this difficult time. You were able to provide us with a clear explanation regarding all of the steps of a “short sale” process, realistic theories of potential outcomes, and even information regarding the different lenders that you have dealt with (including ours) and there methods of handling the “short sale”. We quickly realized that you (and your company) would be the most qualified to assist us.
Our lender was very difficult and disorganized during this process. However, through team work and increased efforts as the weeks went by, you were able to coordinate, negotiate, and finalize the closing of our home……while keeping us informed during the entire process.
We would again like to thank you for your help. We would recommend your company to anybody.
Sincerely, J & T ****

I am writing to you to express my sincere gratitude to you for your expert handling of the purchase of my dream home. I certainly appreciate your time and attention in the midst of many other equally pressing duties. I especially appreciate how you took the time to explain all of the pertinent details and to provide assistance with completion of numerous forms.
As a first time buyer this is an important time in my life as I take the plunge into home ownership. I highly value the advice of professionals like you who understand your field so well and willingly share information and educate clients like myself. In addition my inexperience as a first time buyer made me very anxious and insecure but you handled my questions no matter how trivial with the utmost respect and reassurance. You were always patient and conducted yourself in a professional manner at all times. Throughout the process you impressed me and my family with excellent customer service. At times I felt as if I was your only client because you were either readily accessible or very prompt in returning calls.
I thank you most sincerely for your energy, dedication and your willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty to make the entire process smoother for me. It is obvious that you pride yourself on excellent customer service. I will not hesitate to recommend you as a highly competent, knowledgeable and supportive realtor to anyone who is looking to purchase a home. You truly are a credit to your profession.

Dear Dale and Brad
When I traveled to Florida in September 2009, I knew that I wanted to buy a house. How such a buy takes place in the U.S., I could only guess at the basis of reports on the Internet.
When I arrived in your office in Port St. Lucie, everything was already prepared well. You have created a selection of houses, which corresponded to my criteria regarding size, location, condition and price.
During the visits of the various houses, Brad gave always important additional information for example about the neighborhood, the builder and the quality of the construction. The fact that your company has built houses for many years, was there a big advantage.
I have finally found my dream home at a truly affordable price. The purchase and closing itself was, thanks to your personal network your have built up within the past 37 years in business, very smooth and easy.
After the buy, you have advised and actively supported me in the selection of the home owner insurance and many other details, such as signing up for electricity, water and sewer etc.
In retrospect, I can say that the purchase of my vacation home in Florida could be handled much easier than I had imagined. The purchase of a property in Europe is so much more complicated than it is possible in Florida.
I am very happy with my house in Florida and your team has made a significant contribution on that, for which I again thank you very much! It was the right choice to work with Century21 Colean Realty Inc. .
Geschätzter Dale und Brad
Als ich im September 2009 nach Florida gereist bin, wusste ich, dass ich ein Ferienhaus kaufen will. Wie ein solcher Kauf in den USA abläuft, konnte ich anhand Berichten im Internet nur erahnen.
Als ich in eurem Office in Port St. Lucie eingetroffen bin, war alles bereits vorbereitet. Ihr habt eine Selektion von Häusern erstellt, welche meinen Kriterien bezüglich Grösse, Lage, Zustand und Preis entsprachen.
Während der Besichtigung der verschiedenen Häuser hat mir Brad immer wichtige Zusätzliche Informationen, wie zum Beispiel zur Nachbarschaft, dem Erbauer sowie zur Qualität der Bausubstanz gegeben. Die Tatsache, dass Euer Unternehmen lange selbst Häuser gebaut hat, war dabei ein grosser Vorteil.
Schliesslich habe ich mein Traumhaus zu einem wirklich günstigen Preis gefunden. Der Kauf selbst konnte dank euren sehr guten Kontakten einfach, rasch und problemlos abgewickelt werden.
Ihr habt mich auch nach dem Verkauf bei der Auswahl der Versicherung und vielen weiteren Details wie der Anmeldung für Strom, Wasser und Abwasser etc. beraten und tatkräftig unterstützt.
Rückblickend kann ich sagen, dass der Kauf meines Ferienhauses in Florida viel einfacher abgewickelt werden konnte, als ich mir das vorgestellt habe. Der Kauf einer Immobilie in Europa ist so viel komplizierter, als dies in Florida möglich ist.
Ich bin mit meinem Haus in Florida sehr glücklich. Dazu hat Euer Team einen entscheidenden Beitrag geleistet, wofür ich mich nochmals ganz herzlich bedanke! Mit Century21 Colean Realty Inc. habe ich die richtige Wahl getroffen.
