Martine et Alain, Lille, France

“Mostly what we have been telling our friends and family back here in IL about the sale of our FL home is that we had thought, with the way real estate had been selling in the area, it would probably be listed for about two years before we would have any action…..this was hardly the case with you as our agent……about 17 days did the trick!!
We also tell others how well informed and knowledgeable you are of the entire Naples area.
You did a great job and we feel we had the best agent EVER!
Thanks again,”

Betty & Ivan Wharton, Naples FL

“We have worked with Sandra for nearly 2 years in preparation for our relocation to Naples. During that time, she kept us keenly aware of local market conditions. Among the variety of electronic communication enhancements she utilized, the Listingbook Messenger was probably the most important educational tool for comparative real-time property data. Moreover, when we found properties of specific interest, her willingness to “stand in” and give us a telephone narrative virtual tour as we followed her online was invaluable. Sandra’s command of the process to purchase real estate, and coordination of local service contractors and administrative resources afforded us a complete buyer’s experience from a distance in New England. Just weeks after moving in, we are comfortable and assured that the vision and plan we crafted together so many months ago is now a reality.”

D Yun and N Kelly, Lexington CT

“As first-time home buyers, my husband and I didn’t know what to expect, but Sandra walked us through all the steps, answering all of our questions and there were quite a few. She didn’t waste any time we found a house within four days! She is knowledgeable, experienced, and diligent. We’re very pleased.”

M & K Palazzi, Bonita Springs, FL

We were looking for a new home for about 12 months or so. Sandra consistently kept us updated on market changes and values. Listening to our requirements, we toured properties with her and finally found the home we live in today. Sandra partnered with us throughout the entire process, from showing properties, contract negotiations, inspections to the closing table and afterwards for any ongoing questions we have. Sandra is a dedicated professional who cares that her customers are happy and satisfied for the long term. We were more than just a real estate transaction to her.I would recommend her to any one buying or selling a home. She loves her job and it shows!

Bob & Sylvia Leavy, Naples & MA

From the other side of a real estate sale:

“Sandra,
Again, thank you so much for your cooperation in this matter. Also, please thank the Sellers’ for their time spent in locating the maintenance document. It has been an unfortunate set of circumstances that I believe could probably have been avoided if MY realtor had done his job. Best regards,”

L Andrews, Naples FL

“Sandra was recommended to us by a local attorney and was introduced as “someone who would go the extra mile”. As we did a lot of online prep work we identified the units that had most appeal in our price range. We spent just one one day looking at properties. Sandra was organized and provided us with details that gave us a real understanding of the market. When we made the offer Sandra was there to negotiate and help with the buying process. We got our first choice for less than we thought we might have to pay!! Working with her was a pleasure and I would recommend her to anyone.”

Sharon & Ed Stevens, IL

“To Whom It May Concern:Finding an outstanding resource in the process of buying or selling a home is to be passed on to others. Sandra Meeks is one of the best agents with whom we have ever worked. She made selling a home in an economic downturn possible and provided excellent service. We have found her to accurately represent current market analysis; she listened to our thoughts, and we collaborated.Sandra sold our home in Naples (The Dunes). Our property had been on the market during an economic downturn. The price obtained was fair given market conditions, and the closing was well managed and clean. The selling price was higher than comparable homes had sold for in the prior twelve months.Sandra had the listing for six months. The home had been listed previously with another top realtor, but we were never sure we were getting that listing agents time or her assistant’s. There was very little activity and we chose to make a change. We interviewed three referred agents including Sandra. We met Sandra via her direct marketing campaign to prospective sellers and found it impressive.Showings increased upon changing the listing to Sandra and Premier Properties. She personally handled all showings and was personally dedicated to selling the property. Her communications with us (long distance) was regular, pertinent and accurately represented. Her professionalism during the process was excellent, and we enjoyed working with her in every aspect. We unequivocally recommend Sandra as one of the best agents with whom we have ever worked.”

M&A Cannady, Dallas, TX

“Thank you so much for all your efforts to sell our house.You are a true professional and in these extremely difficult economic times your knowledge and professionalism are outstanding. You kept us informed, you are always upbeat and while professionally I appreciated all you did, personally it was a pleasure to work with you and to get to know you!Thank you Sandra!”

Frank & Gloria Bishop, Naples FL

“Of course, you may use me as a reference. I will tell them that you are the best (damn) real estate agent I have ever worked with.”

Paula & Mike Gutknecht, El Paso, TX

“We worked with Sandra for approximately 18 months – from the early stages of getting acquainted with the area through the successful completion of a purchase. Her manner of dealing with the different stages of our purchasing process couldn’t have been better – she was patient, respectful, attentive, responsive, knowledgeable, and cooperative, and her level of aggressiveness was just right!!! Sandra did a great job of staying in contact with us and providing information on the status of particular properties, as well as the market in general. And either her tastes were similar to our tastes, or she was very good at picking-up on what we liked and pointed us toward properties that we would be interested in. She was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her highly to anyone looking at property in the area.”

Tom & Kathy Schoenbaechler, Louisville, KY

“The selling experience we had with Sandra was simply amazing! It was so much more than an “experience;” it was a “relationship” of trust. In any relationship, communication is key; and Sandra’s communication was impeccable, whether it was by phone, e-mail, or in person. Every question and request was treated in a timely manner with respect; and we were made to feel as if we were the most important people in her client group. With every offer, Sandra handled the negotiation process flawlessly, always having our best interests at heart. Her presence at closing helped make that event much more comfortable; and Sandra’s willingness to give of her time with special situations (radon mitigation, personal property auctions) reinforced that we had made the right decision in choosing a real estate broker. Sandra no longer is our broker; she is so much more–a wonderful friend.”

T& S Chmura, Ohio.

“Just thought you’d like to know…We tried the champagne on Sunday for a mimosa with brunch. …. So we toasted you and all your hard work selling our house – many thanks again.”

K & S Babcock, Naples

“….We were looking for a house (3 bedrooms)with pool as close as possible to the beach in a price range of $ 300,000. (not to much to ask, right!).
We really liked the way you work, first checking in your office on pc all region/communities and then possible available houses. You then took us in the right direction since we really didn’t know the areas to look that most fitted our needs and not waste time. Doing things this way you can see and make your preselections instead of driving around losing time for nothing. Your market knowledge, professionalism, responsiveness and specially your patience are just great !! Finally, we found our house which we can move in for $450,000. ! We are very happy that we found this house and you! We hope this is just the start of a great friendship! Thanks again for all your time and help in our search.”

Kurt & Lesley Crapia, Colorado

“We met Sandra at an open house one afternoon. My husband expressed his wishes and desires and Sandra replied: “I think I know what you are looking for, do you mind if I call a colleague of mine”? She did, and off we went. Her associate gave us an overview of the community that Sandra had in mind for us.
When Sandra finished with her open house that same day, she joined us and showed us a variety of properties, including the fabulous apartment that we own today. She knew exactly what we were looking for.It was a joy and a pleasure to work with Sandra. She gives you the information you will need before you ask for it. We were working with a time constraint and Sandra made it ‘happen’ on time, without stress.The best part of the working relationship with Sandra is her willingness to be helpful even after the deal is done. We have had many questions regarding trades people, vendors, etc. Sandra always gets back to us with answers, choices, and information. She knows the market, but most importantly, she knows her client. Sandra understood our needs and made our wish come true.”

M & P Musco, Montauk, NY

“I have bought and sold over 20 homes in my life time and by far Sandra McCarthy Meeks was the best realtor I have ever deal with. She is very personable and friendly and very easy to deal with. She is knowlable and honest and makes deals happen. I will only deal with Sandra when it come to real estate and I highly recommend her.”

W. Castronovo, Naples, FL

“On April 2008 I have decided to buy a property in Naples, FL. Sandra McCarthy-Meeks has been recommend to me through a friend of mine in California. When I arrived to Naples in May 2008, I met Sandra who was travelling with me all day long for a whole week ! Usually realtors take a few hours to take you around to show you some properties, but Sandra spent even her lunch with me. She was well aware about all the communities as well as prices of the properties in Naples, Bonita Springs, & Fort Myers. I was also very impressed, that she was always passing me her thoughts about each property. Whenever she had any doubts, she was telling me. Sandra is a first class realtor and it would be my pleasure to recommend her.”

A. Ghafarri, Hamburg, Germany

“Sandra is a dedicated, knowledgeable, professional person and it was a pleasure to work with her.”

Bob & Cathy Carter, Barrington, IL

“We had been to Naples a few times on quick trips and wanted to learn more about the area.
We met Sandra when we walked into the Sotheby’s Park Shore office.  Her willingness to help us with all of our questions, her energy and market knowledge helped us understand the properties along the beach, the pricing and the nuances of the various buildings.  After finding “the one”, Sandra made the negotiations, the inspections and the closing of the sale a pleasurable and non-stress event.  We felt so comfortable that did not even fly in for the closing!  Over the past year we have come to know Sandra and her family on a personal level.  We would recommend her real estate skills to anyone.”

Mary & Tom K.  Westchester, PA

“Sandra was introduced to us by friends who had worked with her to buy a home in Florida. We still had two kids in college so were not quite ready to buy a place. Over 3 years we visited Naples and each time Sandra would give us some time to show us properties and update us on the market. This was very helpful to us, but also made us want to be here even more! Finally we decided we wanted to buy in Pelican Marsh. When a condo came to market that fit our criteria, Sandra called us and said “this is the one!” We made an offer electronically and Sandra negotiated on our behalf. We flew in the following weekend and yes, it is “the one”.
Sandra facilitated the home inspections, followed up with the sellers and closing agents tirelessly. She communicated every step of the way with us. I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends. Today, we enjoy many wonderful days in our Naples condo – THANKS Sandra!”

Glenn & Shona, Naples &

“It is not often that you meet a sales person who tells you that “I spend your money as if it were my own!” Those were the words Sandra shared with us when we were listing our home and needed to make some updates. She guided us through what it would take to give our home additional appeal to a buyer, helped us with handymen and moving company references and was always positive about the next step. Our first open house occurred during a torrential downpour and Sandra came prepared with extra umbrellas to welcome people in from their cars! After every showing or open house, Sandra gave us feedback. When we put the house under contract, Sandra guided us through the home inspections and the closing. She was always available for questions and was a pleasure to work with. We have since purchased a larger home, using Sandra as our real estate agent. Again, a job well done. I would recommend Sandra to anyone considering selling or buying a home.”

Mark & Lisa T. Naples, FL

 

“Our experience with Sandra was just the best! She is the perfect example of how an agent who goes above and beyond on our behalf. We were beginning to think that looking for real estate was like buying a car and less and less we looked forward to viewing properties before we began working with her. Her knowledge and professionalism far exceeds that of any other realtors we have worked with – both here in Naples and in MN. She was quick to grasp our needs, likes and dislikes and most importantly did not waste our time looking at properties that did not meet our criteria. We would see properties in the morning and then she would say “go to the beach, take time to process, this is a lot of information”. This was such important time for us to really think about the big decision we were making and as a result, we never felt pressured. Sandra likes to say “I work on your timeline. When you are ready, I will be here for you (hopefully!)” She has a great sense of humor and made the process enjoyable. She knows Naples real estate and she knows her business. We feel blessed we were introduced to her. We highly recommend her services.”

John & Mary H, Waysata, MN

“Sandra was persistent, always optimistic and professional when selling our home during a “challenging” time in Florida real estate.  We are truly grateful to her for all she did to help us find our way out of a difficult situation.”
