“Nick was awesome. He was extremely patient and forthright with the entire process. I would certainly recommend anyone looking to buy or sell a home to use Nick. He helped us through the entire short sale purchase process and helped our dream home become a reality."
We wanted to thank you for the professional way you handled the marketing and sale of our home. We could not have been happier with the service you provided to us, your professionalism, and your knowledge of the market. We would highly recommend you to anyone who may be searching for a Realtor in the area."
“Thanks so much for all of your hard work. I don’t think we could have had a better first home buying experience. Rest assured that we will use you whenever the time comes to relocate. We have already begun telling everyone we know about you and your company. Thanks!"
“We cannot speak highly enough of Nick. I fell in love with the house that we now own the moment I walked in and I said to Nick "please get me this house." Nick delivered. The house desperately needed a new roof and Nick not only negotiated a fair and equitable clause in the contract regarding the roof, we also enlisted his help in negotiating a contract with the roofer that we chose. While buying/selling a home is always stressful, Nick made us feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. He always responded to texts, emails and phone calls within an hour. He never tired of showing me "just one more house," even after I had seen around 30. We consider Nick a part of our family and offer our highest recommendation of him as an agent, and as friend.
"My husband and I had a great experience with Nick listing and selling our home. He was very professional and a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process. We feel very comfortable recommending him and know that he will exceed your expectations."
“I just wanted to say thank you again for all of your help with the townhouse, my dad and I are both grateful for your help! I am so excited about the new house & we couldn't have gotten that deal w/o you! Thanks again!"
“You simply will not find a more knowledgable, hard-working and responsive realtor than Nick Burrafato. Nick did a fantastic job for us. His input, insight and recommendations were invaluable as we were moving from Buffalo, NY to Central Florida. Nick is extremely proactive in addressing the needs of his clients. If you are looking to purchase a house in Central Florida or looking for a realtor, I highly recommend Nick Burrafato."
“Nick, not only helped me purchase my home when I first moved to Florida; Nick also helped me sell that very same home (quickly and effectively) 3 years later when I had to relocate back to the Mid Atlantic region for work. When I was searching for my home; Nick showed me many homes that all fell within the criteria I was initially searching for. In each home Nick was thorough and honest on the little details as well as the major ones that would ultimately influence my decision as well as shape my experience and how I would enjoy my home for the years to come. Nick's attention to detail and proactive vision of my time in the home I would choose was amazing. Even after I purchased and moved in; Nick stayed involved by making amazing recommendations of people I would eventually, successfully and happily, engage with for home improvements; home maintenance, etc....Nick's knowledge of his industry as well as his network of people are truly amazing. I can honestly say that both the purchase of a home and the sale of my home were 2 of the most pleasant experiences I've ever had in all my moves; and I move alot for work. I plan on getting back to the Lake Mary area very soon and when I do; I will seek out Nick for his guidance and help in finding my new home. Thank you Nick!"
“Nick is incredibly professional and very knowledgeable about the best areas in the Orlando area to live in. We were blessed to have found him via the Internet. He met with us in Florida and helped find the most perfect home for our family's big move. We are so very happy with everything Nick has done with us and look forward to working with him again."
“Nick has been our agent with purchasing our first home as well as selling our first home. We couldn't recommend anyone better then him. He guided us through the way with professionalism and very reliable advice. If you are looking for someone in the central Florida area the he's your guy!"
“Nick, I am writing to convey our sincere appreciation for assisting us with our relocation and finding our new home. Specifically, I would like to commend you for your tenacity and follow through to find a house that is suitable for our family. It was a long road (many months), but in the end we found a great house in the right area. You demonstrated tremendous energy and a “can-do” attitude at all times. With my business travel and out of state relocation underway, we were not always available, but you made yourself available whenever we needed to connect. We would not hesitate to refer you to a friend and, in fact, we already have!"
“A short to express my appreciation for your support in handling the sale of my home in Heathrow, FL. I live in Colorado and never lived in the Heathrow home. Thus the transaction required you to act for me in a non-traditional manner. You counseled me on the type of repairs that needed to be done prior to listing the property. You introduced me to a quality contractor who accomplished the repairs with your oversight. You met with my mover to ensure that the goods were packed correctly and loaded on the truck for shipment to Colorado. You handled the negotiations with the Buyers agent in a timely and professional manner. Because of your support, I was able to avoid the cost and time to fly to Orlando only to spend a few hours with the movers. You took a lot of responsibility on your shoulders. I very much appreciated all you did and accomplished on my behalf. I have bought and sold six homes of the years. I highly recommend you and your team. If I can ever provide a recommendation please feel free to have them call me."
“Thank you so much for helping us buy a home. We would not have this house without your help. We knew from the day we met you, that you would make our dreams of owning a home come true. Thank you for being honest, straightforward and dependable. As first time home buyers, this process was overwhelming at times. However, you were there to answer any questions we had. Thank you for treating as if we were your only clients. It made us feel very secure knowing that you were available anytime we needed you. We are so grateful for everything you have done. Thank You."
“Nick did a fantastic time selling our townhouse! We had several offers within one day of listing, and closed the sale less than two weeks later. He was always on top of everything and communicated with us constantly throughout the entire process – not to mention providing us with great advice along the way. We would recommend Nick to anyone who is looking to buy or sell!"
“Nick Burrafato with Gallery of Homes helped us to find a new home and sell another home. Nick truly cares about his clients and that is what sets him apart from others in the industry. He treats you like family and is always looking out for your best interest. Nick has a great knowledge of the Orlando area. Our search was extensive and Nick had a wealth of information on the different areas we were looking at. Since he is always aware of the current market conditions, that really helped with being informed of new properties and pricing. Nick has great relationships with many realtors in the area. That was very beneficial with both the purchase and sale of our home. Additionally, he has great experience with all different types of purchases and it was great to have him help us with all of our needs. Thanks Nick!"
“Nick, Renda & I would like to thank you for the service and personal attention we received from you and Gallery of Homes Real Estate Professionals as it was exceptional! You and your team are truly high-caliber. Your knowledge of the local market and your key contacts in the community helped us in our search for our home. After patiently going through listings and explaining to us about the local schools and neighborhoods, we couldn’t be happier. Our children have tons of friends and love school! We can’t say enough about location, location, location… Our home is situated in a very nice gated community with the local park in walking distance. All of our needs have completely been met, we love this area! We are very grateful that you live and work in this community as it helped in the negotiations and feel we received the best value for our home. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Nick Burrafato & Gallery of Homes Real Estate Professionals to help you in your life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process."
“We had Nick assist us with both purchasing a new home and selling our old one. He was very patient in helping us find our new home and helped us evaluate the property as if he was buying it with us. He was always very professional and gave us advice on numerous occasions that helped us find what we wanted and save money. Nick demonstrated his real estate savvy many times during these transactions. Don’t underestimate the amount of coordinating required in making these transactions go smoothly. Nick did a great job of making sure everything was on time and that we were well communicated with. Nick is also very enjoyable to work with and we will miss seeing him on a regular basis! We would highly recommend using Nick for your next real estate purchase or sale!"
“We relocated from Michigan, and suffered at the hands of another agency as part of corporate relocation. After working with Nick to find a home for our parents on the glowing recommendation of a local friend, we decided we had to change agents. What a difference a great agent makes! Nick’s approach to client service, his expertise with the local real-estate market, and his genuine concern for our current and future well-being helped us navigate what seemed like impossible market conditions, to a marvelous conclusion. We couldn’t have asked for better counsel, or a better advocate through the entire process. Thank you, thank you, Nick!"
“We relocated from out of state to Florida and couldn’t be more pleased with the assistance and guidance we received from Nick Burrafato. His experience, knowledge, ability to communicate, and desire to assist in every way possible allowed us to purchase the desired home within a tight time frame. Given that this was job related relocation with limited on site visit time and practically no knowledge of the local residential areas, we heavily relied on Nick for his advice and direction. Nick is a professional who is genuine and responsive to his client’s needs through all the phases o f the process: home search, inspection, and the actual move. As demonstrated in our situation, Nick is a person you can trust to represent your best interests and will “go above and beyond” to accommodate you. His primary focus is not to just sell you a home but to ensure you are pleased for years to come with the home you choose to buy. He has the ability to understand your needs in order to achieve the desired result. We were most fortunate to have become acquainted with Nick on both a professional and personal level. He is a person of high integrity with a passion to provide the best service possible. Consequently, I would not hesitate to recommend him or use his services again. In short, Nick was invaluable to our home buying process."
“We want to thank you for everything you did to help us find the right home. At times it seemed that we would not find what we were looking for, but you did not give up. Even when we thought we might have found the right one, you were quick to let us know when something was not right, even though it meant the loss of a sale for you. We were very impressed with how much work you did in a very short time to expedite the sale, and then you helped us get more. The yard is looking fantastic. You’ll have to come by to see the changes when we get to Florida. We are certain that our son will be just as pleased as you assist him in his search."
“We were extremely impressed with the level of service we received from Nick Burrafato and Gallery of Homes. Our transaction was a difficult one and Nick and his team worked tirelessly to negotiate and close the purchase of our daughter’s new home. We would wholeheartedly recommend Gallery of Homes to anyone looking to sell or buy real estate."
“I can’t thank you enough for finding us our “dream home” in Heathrow. We were so fortunate to find you as our Realtor. You took the time and effort to get to know us and what we were looking for. As we lived out of town, you always made yourself available when we could get down to Orlando and had homes lined up for us to see. When you saw this home you said “I found your home”, and, you were right. It’s just perfect and we couldn’t be happier with the area and our home. Thanks again for all your help!!!"
“I was a first time home buyer, and I was nervous about buying a home for the first time. Nick walked me through the process every step of the way. He was patient with me and showed me many homes. He taught me the things to look for when picking out the best home for me. He went the extra mile and got me a home that I LOVE! Nick is fair and honest and will do whatever it takes to get his clients the best deal on a home. Nick has become more than a realtor to me, he has become a true friend!"
“Thank you very much for the assistance, guidance, advice, expertise, etc... You gave to Kevin and in these past few months - but especially yesterday and today! I appreciate your patience and knowledge!!! We are looking forward to our new home and working with you in the future!!!"
“We cannot thank you enough for going completely above and beyond the call of duty for us, as we attempted to buy a home in Florida from 1000 miles away! From the day we clicked on your website, we had a feeling that you would be the right realtor for us. Your site was very user-friendly and your responses to our phone calls and emails were immediate. Throughout the entire process, you were patient with us, making sure that we found the “perfect” home in our dream location. You offered sound advice and even provided us with information on schools, doctors and utilities in the area. Although Rebecca had never seen the home prior to moving here, you gave us the confidence that we were making the right choice and now having been in our home for a few weeks, we are sure we did. We appreciated all of the honest responses you gave to each of our many questions—specifically regarding the home and relocating to Florida in general. We were fortunate that you handled all of the inspection and closing details so that we did not have to travel to Florida for these final steps and were so impressed by your professionalism. Thank you again, Nick, for going above and beyond to make this move as seamless as possible for our family. We would highly recommend your services to anyone searching for a home in our area."
“If you are reading this, then may be you are just as lucky as I am for finding Nick Burrafato. I have bought and sold many homes over the last 20 years and dealt with numerous real estate agents. Almost all the agents rank between 2 and 6 out of 10. Nick however is easy 11. That is right and without exaggeration. Nick has truly surpassed my expectations. When I first met Nick, I was impressed by his organization, and professionalism. He managed to show us all the houses we wanted to in just 5 hours since we were in the area for just one day. He was knowledgeable about every area in the business, from evaluating the quality of the homes to their desirability. Although Nick stayed in touch through his regular news letters and Emails yet he never exerted any pressure on us, he was always available for questions when needed. When the time has finally come and we picked 2 houses, Nick volunteered his supportive judgment and expert opinion and guided us towards the best choice. From there on, we went on automatic pilot, since Nick and his impressive network of professionals simply took care of every detail including getting us the best price and finance. This was the smoothest transaction I have ever had. Throughout Nick kept us informed through endless E mails and phone calls. Even after the closing, when almost all real estate agents disappear, Nick stayed and came back to the house to offer valuable suggestions. Not only that, where else can you find a busy successful realtor who would take time off his schedule to attend my internet installation at the new house when I was not able to be there. Once again, if you reading this because you are about to work with Nick to find your home, then you are indeed a lucky person."
“We are truly thankful and appreciative of your professionalism, knowledge and dedication in the purchase of our new home. You remained focused on our best interests and strived to guide us where we needed to be. You also promised we would love this neighborhood, school district and lifestyle...and you were correct! Having relocated three times in the past, we were familiar with the process. However, moving out of state with three small children is never easy. We are so grateful to you and Gallery of Homes for assisting us throughout the entire purchase. We could not have been any more pleased and will continue to recommend you in the future. Your expertise is outstanding and your negotiating skills are superb! Thanks to you we are now living in Lake Mary and loving life!"
“Buying our first home was a very scary step for my wife and I. We didn’t really know where to start. Nick Burrafato came highly recommended by numerous people. He was very diligent and calming through the whole process. I never felt like I had called him too much or that he was annoyed to hear from me – and believe me, I called a lot! Through this stressful time in the housing market and in this huge step in our lives, Nick was patient with us, calmed our concerns, and guided us every step of the way. We closed on our scheduled date without any hiccups and are now looking forward to moving into our beautiful new home! It was an absolute privilege working with Nick and would recommend him to anyone, whether you are buying your first or your fifth home!"
“We have bought and sold seven homes in six states over the past 20 years, and without a doubt Nick Burrafato provided the best service of any of our realtors. Nick knows his market, listens intently, offers intelligent opinions, is flexible and attentive, and manages his business with integrity. He is a pleasure to work with and has our highest recommendation."
“After relocating from Boston to the Orlando area in December 2008 we found that decent properties located in the best school districts which were reasonably priced were selling quickly. We initially worked with a Realtor and placed 3 offers none of which were accepted even though they were very close if not at asking price. At this point the following became clear: Since there was nothing wrong with our offers the variable was our Realtor. In order for our offers to come across as serious we needed someone credible to present them and our current Realtor was making mistakes in dealing with sellers and other agents. We switched Realtors and began working with Nick and within 3 weeks we had an accepted offer. His guidance and advice were tailored to what he accurately perceived our taste and needs to be and this was very helpful during the process of selection of both areas and individual properties. Even in this market, the house we bought received multiple offers and was on the market for less than a week. Nick’s no nonsense, direct and professional approach allowed us to get the results we wanted on the first offer we placed through him. I would recommend Nick to anyone who is looking for results in their Real Estate transactions."
“In these tough economic times, having a pro-active realtor is essential in achieving results. From day one, Nick was pro-active in promoting the house and keeping me appraised on the feedback of the showings. Nick was realistic about the prospects in the market and gave me good advice as to what was happening in the market, and how we should react to the changing market. Beyond that, he was great in working through the inspections, maintenance issues, and closing process. I would highly recommend you choose Nick as your realtor."
“I experienced exceptional professionalism with Gallery of Homes Real Estate Professionals; my entire home purchasing process was efficient and effective. Nick was ethical, diligent, and straightforward throughout the entire process. I received phenomenal home listings, expedient response times, and reliable inspections in a timely fashion. Nick’s knowledge and expertise coupled with serious negotiations resulted in a great savings for my family. All contracts were explained in detail, and my values were the primary focus at all times."
“We cannot thank you enough for the white glove treatment you provided to us as we searched via long distance for our dream home. Looking for an Orlando home from Virginia was a challenge. However, you did everything you could to make the search as easy as possible. You truly listened to our wants and needs in regards to the type of home we were looking for, and you continually updated us on all new listings that came on the market. Never once, did we feel any "sales pressure" from you during the whole process. When we came down to tour the homes we were interested in, you were so organized and conscientious about utilizing our time during our visit efficiently. Funny that we never found the house of our dreams by seeing it in person, but actually ended up buying it site unseen based on some terrific photos you took of the home. The fact that we completely trusted your opinion and chose not to fly down to see the house prior to signing a contract should speak volumes about how much we trust you. We are finally moved in, and feel that this is the place we belong. Thank you so much for everything you have done. I hope to have the opportunity to recommend you too many friends in the future. I have no doubt you'd provide the same outstanding service to them as well. Here's to you, Nick!"
This was our first time to selling a house and you made it seem a very easy and smooth sailing experience. You gave us several tips to make our home more presentable for sale and gave us considerable insight on what the real market value of our home was. You are very professional, very timely and very thorough. We are very lucky to find someone as wonderful as you to help us selling our house very fast in this tough market. We will highly recommend you to anyone who is interested in buying or selling a home. Thank you so much Nick, for everything that you have done to make this such a pleasant experience. Thanks!"
“What a true blessing in disguise it was to work with you! Trying to find trustworthy people to work with is almost impossible these days, but from the moment we started the whole process until the final transaction, you were there for every detail! It is very obvious that your training and professionalism is unremarkable in the industry and we would recommend both of you to any future homebuyer! Thanks you so much for all your time and help!"
“We can't believe how lucky we were to hit on your website and your name when we were looking for houses on line in this area. Nick, you have been so fantastic. You have done so much for us and have always gone the extra mile. We couldn't believe it when you sent us the list of utilities, etc. You made our move very easy and we can't thank you enough. We just wish our realtor in New Jersey could have been you to sell our home. We wish you much happiness. If you are ever in the neighborhood, give a call. Would love to see you again. Thanks again for everything."
“Nick has been a pleasure to work with. He takes the time to understand your needs, continually assesses your reactions and adapts his search accordingly for your new home so it matches your needs, budget, and preferences. He steers you clear of potential problems and shady deals. He's honest, friendly, realistic and efficient. If your looking for someone to help you and your family find a home you will want to live in, Nick is the realtor for you. Thanks again for all your help and willingness to roll us though the deal."
“Just extending my many thanks for making my purchase easy and smooth, you really worked it out for me. It was fun and not stressful as I thought. I hope other future buyers will have the same good experience that I had that is only if they find you. Thanks again and keep up the good works."
“Myra and I take this opportunity to thank you for the pleasant experience we enjoyed purchasing our new home in Heathrow. We commend you on your ability to capture our interest on what we dreamed to be our future home. We are especially grateful of how you led us through the whole process and kept us informed at all times. We also want to express our gratitude on your protecting us, in more than one occasion, during negotiations. Myra and I look forward to meeting your family once we move in. Thank you!"
“It’s been 2 months since we moved in to the home of our dreams and we would be remiss if we didn’t take the time to thank you for helping us find it. Any time that you take a shot in the dark to choose a real estate agent, as we did, you don’t know what kind of outcome there will be. But from the moment we met you until the whole deal was completed Ill have to say that you took care of every detail. Being an out of the area buyer is always difficult at best but you quickly assessed our needs and found the perfect areas for us to consider and the perfect home. And you were right in saying that we would know it was the right house for us when we stepped across the threshold. We’ve used REMAX for the last five real estate transactions that we have done and have yet to be disappointed. It is obvious that his training and professionalism is unparalleled in the industry. Thank you for being a REALTOR standard bearer."
“Being an out of state of state client, we were a little nervous purchasing investment properties. We inquired about a property posted on the internet. Nick contacted us right away answering my questions and asking about our goals and expectations in Florida real estate investing. He has since guided us in a direction that is working out extremely well. He has made us feel as though we are his only client. Nick Burrafato is the best Realtor we have ever worked with. He truly listened to us and worked hard on our behalf. Nick was in contact with us constantly through every step. He is professional, knowledgeable and hard working. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend Nicks service to anyone who is looking for an experienced, caring Realtor who gets things done. There is absolutely no comparison to the excellent service we receive from him. It is a real pleasure."
“Paul and I would like to thank you for helping us find our new house. Not only did you find exactly what we were looking for within 24 hours of our first conversation, you made every step of the way easy. We felt completely at ease knowing that you were representing us throughout the process. We both feel that you went above and beyond and would definitely recommend you to anyone and will use your services in any future deals. Thank you for your professionalism and for the giant welcome home gift basket of chocolate! It was a pleasure working with you."
“Nick, I wanted to again thank you for everything you did to help my family and I find a great home in Heathrow, FL. You went above and beyond in every aspect of this process. You were able to make the process of moving 1,100 miles virtually painless as we felt confident we found the right house, in the right neighborhood, at the right price. You really looked out for our best interests which I hear is very rare in this industry. Thanks again and please feel free to give my name and number to any of your clients as a reference."
“These are the things as a first time homebuyer I hoped to encounter in a real estate agent. Getting questions answered and feeling comfortable within the entire process were also a major concern. Having the ability to have achieved all of this is was very gratifying. Nick and his team stepped to the plate and delivered. It’s not property its lifestyle."
CLIENT REVIEWS OF ANNETTE SCISCIANI
“I am writing to tell you how satisfied we both are with all your hard work helping us find and build our beautiful house. Thank you for a job truly well done. From the first day we met you, you immediately understood what we were looking for and that made it so much easier. You were very patient with all of our questions and we never felt we were wasting your time. It always felt we were with a friend as well as an excellent real estate agent. We did find our perfect home which is an accomplishment that we owe mostly to you. Last but not least we are also pleased that our friendship has continued beyond the house buying process. Many thanks ... and see you around, neighbor!"
“We have bought and sold three homes with Annette Scisciani and have recommended her to both family and friends. All have been very positive experiences. She is professional and very knowledgeable. She blocked out time and planned viewings around our schedule. When we looked at homes she was always well prepared providing us with solid background information. We appreciated the fact that she gave us the time we needed and promptly addressed any questions and concerns. She understood what we were looking for and exceeded our expectations in finding just the right home. We couldn't be happier with our experience and would not heitate to recommend her again."
“Thanks for making a home a purchase so easy. We love our new home! If I would have gone with anybody else I am sure I would not have as nice as a home. I swear you can read minds. Thank you from the whole family."
“We were very skeptical when we had to sell our home due to a job relocation. Considering the fact that so many have been struggling with selling their homes made us feel that we would end up underwater. However, Annette at Gallery of homes helped us sell our home for far more than we expected. Annette even went above and beyond the call of duty during the purchase of our new home. Due to Annette’s due diligence, research, and vast knowledge, our move was made much easier. Your help was appreciated more than you would ever know. Thank You Annette!!!"
“Annette has assisted me and other members of my family in a total of four transactions over the past three years. She goes above and beyond in her knowledge and expertise, plus has incredible patience in dealing with first time home buyers. I would highly recommend her for any type of real estate purchase or sale."
“We have really completed all our transactions"! Two houses sold and one bought! What an incredible journey! :) Glad it was with you as you certainly know what you are doing, and if something comes up and you are not sure, you are quick to find out!!
Thank you for everything!"
“I want to send you a short note to express my gratitude for the support and the professionalism displayed during this process by all of you. I am extremely happy that you were at my side during this process. I felt like a valued customer and that all of you went the extra mile. I don't think that this words will make justice to how I am feeling.......THANKS!!!”
“We had a great purchase experience working with Annette. Annette was great at searching for properties that met our criteria – however the best part of the experience was her assistance in guiding us through the closing process once the property was found and the purchase price agreed on. Being from out-of-state, we did a lot of communication via email which she was always very responsive with. Also we were not familiar with the local services and Annette was very helpful in keeping the closing process on track and assisted us in finding a lender, home inspector, insurance representative and various service technicians that we were able to use to make the transition seamless."
“Words cannot express how thankful I am to Annette Scisciani. She made it possible for two of my children to buy their first homes. She was there every step of the way, from looking at homes in the beginning, till the signing of papers on closing day. Annette's honesty, knowledge, suggestions, and most importantly support with everything, was very helpful to me and my daughters. Thank you."
“Annette Scisciani did a great job for us as we purchased a home in Sanford. This was especially important as we needed someone we could trust as we had not relocated yet and were 1100 miles away. She did all the transactions long distance via email and telephone. She answered all of our questions which were numerous and handled all aspects of purchasing a property such as Home Inspections, necessary paperwork and looking out for our interest right up to and including closing time. We certainly would not hesitate to recommend or use the Gallery of Homes Real Estate Professionals again."
“You were great in helping us find a home with just a week to visit Lake Mary and make a decision. We needed to be near our jobs and daughter's school and you did a terrific job of targeting the right properties to match our need. We loved your personal attention to every item needed. This was not easy to
do once we returned to our home overseas, but you were always there for us. We also loved the lender and contractor you helped us find in Lake Mary's community. They were very helpful as well, and your facilitation of their services and monitoring of progress was most reassuring. Having moved to six international locations, this was an easy move for us, knowing how well you looked after our interests. We were very happy with your services!"
“We are doing great and enjoying our new home! We LOVE it!! The boys have adjusted very well and they can't get enough of their playroom. We thank you again for all the help with the purchase of our new home. You were great to work with!"
“ We could not have asked for anyone to better help us. We lived in Pennsylvania and were relocate to Florida. We found the house of our dreams on that visit. Annette guided us through the process of making an offer and getting a contract on the house. She handled every bump in the road like the professional she is. I do not believe that we would have been able to complete the purchase of our home if we did not have Annette to rely on. We would highly recommend Annette to everyone who has the need to purchase a home in the Orlando area."
“My Husband had been offered a relocation promotion to Lake Mary from the United Kingdom. I met with Annette is was obviously she knew the housing market in the area but more importantly from my point of view she listened to what I wanted and found houses that matched those criteria. We came across our new home very quickly and Annette handled everything brilliantly. Annette made moving from one Country to another easy!"
"Annette, we know that anyone we send to you will be WELL taken care of. You are the best. We have moved many times and worked with many realtors and have never dealt with one that is so thorough and caring. THANK YOU so much for taking such good care of both of my children and their new homes. p.s. When I reread this email I thought "this sounds like letters that I thought were made up by businesses! :-) It is far from made up in your case."
“We really do love this house! We loved working with you and appreciated all you did for us! I took comfort in knowing that you would be with me if Dana couldn’t and that you would look out for our best interest. You helped us make some good decisions and I liked that all I had to do was call and you would answer questions or help if needed. I would recommend you to any of our friends! We really love this house!"
“Thanks Annette! Rita and I are happy to be home-owners in Orlando. And we thank you for your patience and diligence in all related matters. We certainly could not have done it without you. But most of all you made us comfortable in the overall process."
“Annette, I just wanted to write to you and thank you again for all of your help with my new home purchase. I've been moved in for about a week now. Alex loves the back yard area and the pool. I really appreciate all of the time you spent making this an easier transition for us. The gift card will come in very handy, too. That was such a nice surprise.

CLIENT REVIEWS OF KIM TRAWICK
“We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate you! You are such an amazing realtor and person; we are so glad that we found you to help us find our new home. You are the best realtor that we have ever worked with and will be calling you again if we ever need to find a new place. You will come highly recommended to anyone we know that is looking for a new place!I felt at ease with looking for a home from the first time we spoke on the phone. You listened to everything that we were looking for and you understood exactly what we had in mind when we talked about our dream home. The process of looking through homes was smooth because you had found homes that matched what we wanted and you did all of the work for us. Any questions we had were answered right away and sometimes even before we could ask them, you were on top of things. We were extremely impressed with your knowledge of the areas and the homes. You took all of that into consideration when we gave you our criteria and you put all of that together and made our dream come true! Having you as our realtor made looking for a home an exciting and non-stressful experience. You are not only a great realtor but also a kind and caring person. You made sure that we found a home that we loved and didn’t settle for anything less. Because of you we found a home that our family can grow with and have wonderful memories in!"
“As I sit here gazing out the window of our new home, I realize how fortunate we were to have you as our realtor. I like to consider myself one of your “special” clients since you guided me for two years patiently and professionally. You exemplified that it just wasn’t about the sale and truly cared about placing us in a home that worked for us. You took the stress out of the first time home buyer experience and kept me informed on every step of the process. We would both like to thank you and let you know we gained a friend along the way. Our door is always open for you!!"
“Dear Kim, We would just like to say thank you for what you have done for us. Our 1983 run down foreclosure house is now something that we call our home. After three long month's that you have dealt with us and looking at so many different places we are very happy that we found you online. You took time on your days off during holidays and just personal time to go out and find us a home. Our new home is now painted, pool cleaned, new fence, landscape finished but everyday we will continue. With out you we wouldn't be where we are today."
“I found Gallery of Homes on-line while in Evansville, Indiana and Kim Trawick reached out to me. I knew right away, that Kim was going to do a great job for us. Her follow-through was incredible, and though I was over 800 miles away, Kim made me feel from the start that she was MY Realtor, and she had our best interests at heart. Kim referred me to a great corporate apartment for my first two months in Orlando, and when I had to move to get an address to register my kids in the schools we had chosen, she found me another apartment that fit the bill. Kim kept us up to date with all of the homes for sale in our price range, and in the area we wanted to look. All the while Kim educated my wife and I on how the process worked, and what we should look for and stay away from. Finally we found the house of our dreams. Kim helped us negotiate a great price, and connected us to a terrific lending company. The closing process was difficult with all of the new Federal regulations, but Kim was there to hold our hands through the whole process. This included early morning and late night calls. When the moving truck showed up early at the house we were buying before we closed, Kim was able to negotiate an early move in with the sellers – prior to closing! Now we fondly call her Kim-Possible! Extremely professional, organized, perceptive, intelligent and trustworthy, Kim Trawick did an amazing job for us, I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for the right home in Orlando."
“Bob and I wanted to say Thank You! We are so grateful for your help. You went above and beyond to help us when we needed it most. You helped us find a beautiful townhome. We would definitely recommend your services to anyone. Thank You again! "
“Kim, To our new friend!!!! It is hard to know where to begin. You were wonderful to work with. When we first started looking at homes for sale in the Orlando area, we signed up on several real estate websites and you were the only one to return our call. (It was on a Saturday and within 30 minutes). We relayed to you the type of home we were interested in and this started the ball rolling. You immediately chose several properties and sent us the links for our review and choose the ones we were interested. We communicated with each other through e-mails and phone calls for approximately 1 month. You were well prepared when we got to Florida and ready to take us to view properties. Needless to say, within approximately 3 hours we were prepared to make an offer on our vacation home. You have gone well beyond expectations by providing us with contact information for the home inspection, termite inspection, lawn service, property surveyor, property insurance, etc. Thank you hardly seems enough to tell you how much we appreciate you taking care of our needs. Without a doubt, you are one of the nicest people we have had the privilege to come in contact. You made our complete transaction a pleasant experience and your knowledge of all aspects of the closing process was remarkable. You followed through with everything you told us and offered suggestions on things we did not even think about. Gallery of Homes is fortunate to have you and you are truly an asset to them."
“Kim Trawick is part Real Estate Agent, part therapist and certainly became a friend. Looking for a house long distance is hard enough. When you compound it with a tight timeframe, real estate market as it is in 2010/11, it gets crazy. Kim took the time to listen to what we wanted and found a great pallet of homes to show us. We fell in love with the 1st one. Overcoming obstacles along the way, which are not relevant to this story, we finally settled. Kim listened to me cry, laugh, scream, shout and jump up and down with pleasure. Always being supportive and giving us good suggestions and good counsel as we are new Floridians. Kim is a true professional and most importantly follows thru on what she says she will do. I knew I could reach her day or night and she always supplied me with just what I needed, even if it was a laugh."
“Kim Trawick is absolutely AMAZING! I sought Kim out though the websites while still living in Maryland. She was the only realtor that not only called me back but called back right away. I can only assume that dealing with clients’ long distance is very challenging. Kim made it seems easy and enjoyable. Kim took the time to listen to our needs, helped to organize our thoughts and asked more questions in order for her to better understand what kind of home we were looking for. Being in Maryland made it hard to see the homes we liked on the website. Kim went to all the homes, made all the calls and took video/pictures of all the homes. Over the course of three months she spent countless hours day and night with us. She made us feel comfortable with her, we trusted her. After narrowing our search down to a few homes we finally flew to Florida. Kim greeted us at the airport with a big hug. She was so genuine and caring. She spent her whole weekend with us going from house to house. She used her experience and went to bat for us while we were in all the homes making sure every detail was discussed and question was answered and understood. It was clear that Kim’s goal was our happiness. By the end of the trip we left Florida having bought our dream home and making a very dear friend. Of course it didn’t stop with the sale of a house. Kim took care of everything right down to the final inspection. She treated it as if it were her home. It made moving in worry free. She would call us periodically to tell us about the wonderful Florida weather and things that were going on in our community or things nearby that we, as a family, can do when we get here. We couldn’t wait to get to Florida. She called us during our drive down to make sure things were going OK and to see if we needed anything. She was here to welcome us when we moved in. We can’t thank Kim Trawick enough for all she has done for our family. She has changed our lives forever and we will always keep her close to our heart. Anyone would be very lucky to have Kim Trawick as their sales agent; she is professional, honest, understanding, and patient. Kim Trawick cares!"
“This was my first time I used a real estate agent to purchase an existing home. I used the Internet to search for homes in my area. I registered with Kim’s company (so I could get updates on homes in the area). Within 24 hours, Kim e-mailed me to introduce herself and the rest is history. She sent me daily e-mails containing multiple home listings. Within a week, I saw a home I was interested in. Kim drove across town on a Sunday (my only available day) to show it to me. After the walk through, I was interested in making an offer, however, I told Kim that I promised my teenage son earlier that week that I would not make any offers until he saw the house and we would agree together. Kim encouraged me to go get him while she waited at the house. I signed papers that night and didn’t have to lift a finger since that time. Kim handled the whole process. The closing took place within 30 days. Excellent experience, awesome attitude & extremely friendly. Customer service is alive and well!"
“With my mother moving to a new city by herself, we were faced with the difficult task of finding a new home for her in a very short period of time. She found Kim online and I am sure glad I did. She was professional, asked many questions and assisted with seeing multiple listings the next day. Throughout the process Kim was attentive, patient and her follow through was second to none. She matched multiple listings with the requests that we gave her and within a couple of weeks, we found the perfect match. Thank you Kim for all you did. You made this very easy for my mother and I, and it was certainly a pleasure working with you."
“Kim Trawick at Gallery of Homes Real Estate has been a great help in locating and purchasing a condo in the Orlando Area. She spent many hours by first showing us available condos and then by keeping us constantly updated on condo availability when we returned to Pennsylvania. She provided us with accurate information on the bidding process and in the end we were able to purchase our condo at a very fair price. Kim followed through by setting up the necessary condo inspection and helped us fill out and submit the information necessary for a successful closing with the bank.
Thanks to Kim our first experience in buying a condo from long distance has been a pleasure. We will happily deal with Kim in the future with the purchase of other properties in the Orlando Florida area. We also have recommended Kim to several of our friends and family who are interested in buying property in Florida."
“We found Kim to be very helpful and dedicated to her work/ It was a pleasure looking at property with her. We wish her well."
We found Kim to be professional, efficient and wonderful to be with. She took care of all our needs and made a long-distance move feel like it was just cross-town. When she addressed our concerns, she did so with 100% of her attention."
“Dear Kim, I don't know how to thank you for finding the home of my dreams. When I first started looking for a home it was very complicated and most realtors did'nt want to be bothered with looking at houses, they would give you a list of houses to go look at, and wanted you to tell them if you liked one. When I met you, it was like going out with one of my friends to look at a house and you always had my best interest at heart. I really appreciate everything you did for me and the time you took out of your schedule to make me feel important. I will always recommend you to everyone I know that wants to buy a house, you are the best and I will miss seeing you but I did get the house I always wanted thanks to you."
“Kim, I just wanted to say that from day one everything that you have done for me has been so smooth and when I have a question about anything you have always been there fast with a response .I thought at first that moving from upstate NY to Florida was going to be crazy, but from day one you have made everything go so smooth, thank you for everything."
“I have been working towards the purchase of a home with Kim Trawick for several months now. I wasn't ready to buy until recently. She still was very attentive to my requirements in a home. She never once wavered in pursuit to help me find what I was looking for. Always listening to what I said and following through for me. Her attention to all details and her knowledge of the housing market make her a top agent in Real Estate. Personal attention to her clients requests is a strong attribute. Customer service doesn't get any better. Thank you Kim for your devotion to your job and your client."
“Kim, A simple thank you is not enough for all the effort you have made to help resolve the problems we have encountered during the purchase of the house in Orlando. You have been there to help resolve each issue, and answer all our questions during this prolonged long distance purchase. We would highly recommend you to anyone we know looking to buy in central Florida."
“Thanks for all you've done for Kathy & I... You made the purchase of our Condo by Disney painless....you showed us just what we wanted in a very short period....Kathy & I look forward to years of staying there with our kids & grand kids.... Thanks once more."
“Dear Kim, It has been a pleasure working with you over the past month as Julie and I are excited to move into our new home! You were always quick to pick up your phone, lightning fast to reply to my e-mails, and eager to take us out to find our perfect home (even though we lived 45 mins from you). You have made the whole home buying experience easy and painless and I would recommend you gladly to anyone who is searching for a home! Thanks again for the hard work you have done for us."

“Hi Kim, I wanted to "thank you, thank you, thank you" so much for all the great work you did in helping us find our home away from home. It's a pretty daunting task looking for a house from a thousand miles away, but you took all the stress out of it for us (well, most of the stress). Bob and I were amazed how you were able to tune into our wants and needs...you actually LISTENED to us and responded with listings that for the most part, matched our requirements. You didn't try to over-sell us; and at times, when we knew immediately the house was not for us, you just moved us on to the next without wasting our time. Kim, from the moment we first made contact you were accessible at all times. I was amazed when I'd drop you an email at midnight...and would have an answer in the morning!! You're crazy about your career and the people who you represent benefit from that. It's wonderful working with someone so energetic and obviously in love with what they do. It's always great to get a phone call from you "just checking in" to see how we're doing. Our friends and family were amazed that we were able to buy a house "in just one day"..but we all know that wasn't the case. You worked with us from afar, without even meeting for weeks and weeks. You were able to hone in on exactly what we were looking for geographically, financially, and structurally; and that saved us so much time and ultimately found us the house that will indeed become our home. Thanks Kim. If you ever need a reference for future clients you can count on Bob and myself for an enthusiastic referral. Florida Home Gallery is fortunate to have you represent them. Sincerely,"
“Hi Kim, just wanted to thank you for all your hard work, I know that you went out of your way to help me find a rental for little compensation. I know you only sell and find homes for clients, so what you did for me was unreal. I wanted to say I did not expect to get the kind of treatment I did. I felt more like family than a client, I know when I move into my new place it will be because of you, and I have found a wonderful friend in you. Thanks again."
“Dear Kim, When I finally convinced my parents to make the big move from Watchung N. J. to Lake Mary, Florida, it was Kim I called. My parents lived in the same house in N. J. for over 50 years, then they decided their house was just too much for them, they put their house on the market. A week later, the house right across the street from me, went on the market. I told my parents about it, it seemed like it was meant to be. I called Kim and she handled everything for us, to make this happen! She was able to get all the paperwork together necessary for me to handle this transaction for them, with professionalism & ease. Nothing was to much trouble for her, and in these days with customer service at it's all time low, I have renewed faith. Thank You, Kim!"
“Kim helped us find our amazing home and stuck with us through each and every problem. She is excellent. I smile each and every day just-driving down Markham Woods and walking in our house. It was a rocky road to purchase this property but definitely worth the work. Thank you Kim!"
“I am writing this letter as a recommendation for our realtor, Kim Trawick. She was recommended to us by my hairdresser and I am so glad that she did. The minute we met Kim we knew we had met a friend. We were so comfortable with her and we could tell that she loved our property and was so enthusiastic about selling it for us. That made us feel good about our decision to sell our house. The entire time, she was always available by phone, email, texts and never seemed to be bothered by us contacting her with questions. She was always so happy to help us!! And we sold our house in less than one week. We could not have done that without her. I know that Kim will always be a friend. I think of her as a friend before I think of her as a realtor. However, she is a wonderful realtor and I readily recommend her as your realtor. You can trust her to do the best job possible, with a great attitude, and always with your best interests at heart. We love her!"
“To the best realtor we could ever have asked for! Kim you are a rock star, thank you so much for everything you did for us. We are recommending you to everyone. THANKS!"
“Kim was such a pleasure to work with- she was responsive, and really interested in ensuring that we found the home that was right for us. She was so helpful all the way through closing. Buying a home was really a great experience with Kim as our realtor. If we ever need to look for another home, I have no doubt that I would use her again, and would have no reservation in recommending her to friends or family."
“Having purchased and sold many homes in my lifetime I can say that Kim has been one of the best realtors I have ever dealt with. Her tenacity, thoroughness and attention to every last detail is impressive."
“Kim made buying a house easy for me. I had started my home search with another Realtor, but he had difficulty understanding exactly what I was looking for. I’m glad I gave up on him and found Kim! She immediately understood what I wanted and provided me with near-daily listings based on my search criteria. She communicated with me on a regular basis and always treated me as a top priority. Kim’s candor was also much appreciated throughout the home buying process. I probably had some unrealistic ideas of what I could afford and she steered me in the right direction with courtesy and professionalism. In the end, I found a home with everything I wanted (or shall I say, Kim found me a home) for a price that fit my budget. I highly recommend Kim – she will make your home search a smooth, enjoyable experience!"
