Craig was professional, knowledgeable, and patient as we searched for our new home.

If your looking for a realtor that is trustworthy, reliable, and knowledgeable about current market trends - hire Craig!

Chang Mendez Investments

We recently had the absolute pleasure of working with Jackie Garth who made our first home-buying journey a breeze.

From start to finish, she exceeded our expectations and guided us through every step of the process with expertise and patience. Jackie has an impressive level of knowledge in the industry and she had a remarkable ability to understand our needs and preferences. We were looking for a home with specific needs and was able to filter thru homes that didn’t fit our needs as well as those out of our price range. She took the time to listen and only sent us homes that matched our requirements. I noticed along the way that a lot of the selling realtors that we were dealing with were difficult to get ahold of and I don’t feel like they represented their client very well- but I may have been just spoiled with Jackie. She tirelessly worked on our behalf and we can’t be more grateful. She was also a great negotiator. She got us our home for much less than asking price and also negotiated things in our co tract that needed repair prior to our move-in. I never thought buying our first home would be such a smooth process and I’m so happy that Jackie held our hand the whole way thru. If you're looking for a realtor who will go above and beyond to ensure you find your dream home, Jackie is the realtor to use. She comes highly recommended and we will use her for all future purchases! Lindsey and Jordan

Lindsey and Jordan

Lindsey isn’t a realtor who attempts to charm her way into a higher commission rate.

She’s the person who will sit with you and read your contract page by page till 1030pm so you understand it and feel more confident in its details. She’s a person who check on you multiple times, and ensures the integrity of the contract is held and you as the buyer are receiving a great house. She will text or email you months later to simply see if you’re enjoying your house and sends Christmas cookies and cards. I wasn’t used to that genuine care from realtor, or any other person in sales. Some people truly still manifest their passion and work ethic into a career they love, and you in turn are a part of a far better experience. Buying a home isn’t a small decision it’s life changing. I’d choose Lindsey if I was buying a small ranch home, or a ten million dollar mansion. She would dedicate the same level of care for each one.

Andrew Stokes

So thankful we had Diana to help us find our first home!

She always made us feel like we were top priority and stayed on top of things every step of the way. We couldn't be happier.

Bryce G.

I can not say enough kind words about Maria.

She is professional and knowledgeable. She listed my father’s home and had multiple offers the first week. I was out of state and Maria handled every detail keeping me informed during the entire process. She is without a doubt the best realtor that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I whole heartedly recommend Maria to anyone with a real estate need, she is the best!

Kathy F.

Craig Murrell was professional, very kind and extremely knowledgeable, he truly goes beyond for his clients needs.

Always friendly and checking to see if you need anything, he is truly one of a kind in real estate. My husband and I cannot wait to work with Craig again in the near future in help of finding our forever home.

Amy K.

We used Martha as our agent for buying our dream home and now we are using her to sell our old home.

She is hands down the hardest worker you will find! Her knowledge of all the ins and outs is invaluable. She will walk you through step by step, providing recommendations, giving options, and being a real estate guardian angel! Don't look any further- she is THE agent you want and need!

Stacee B

Craig helped me sell two properties in Lakeland, and I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell!

With the tightened market and the fact that I was mostly out of town during the process, I needed someone who would represent me well and I couldn't be happier with the job Craig did. I would definitely list with him again!

The Best Ever!

!! When we engaged Stacy for our Winter Haven Condo, we did not know her. She was a referrral by Zillow. At first we were not sure if she would be able to help us since we are not residents of Winter Haven and reside few hours away. Right from the time she called us, she was proactive, stayed on top of things, worked really hard for us and she made sure all the communications between the HOA and the seller, closing office, you name it nothing fell thru under her watchful eye and she would communicate even at 11pm via Tx messaging if needed. She was the on top of everything, from getting the home inspected, paperwork of ownership with the HOA, working with the seller and we really had to do nothing. I have nerve worked with an agent who takes care of everything and we are property investors who have worked with several agents. She is the best ever we have ever met. The best part was, the way we worked with her was as if we knew her for years and she made sure we got the max since we were purchasing the home with all the furniture and electronics. One can never go wrong with Stacy and we have engaged her once again to sell one of our other properties. Thank you Stacy for being the best out there!! Verified by RateMyAgent

The Best Agent - Again!

I couldn't have asked for anything more. She was always available and eager to find what I was looking for.

Brandon Porter (Seller/Repeat Buyer) Client Aug 23, 2021

As a resident of PA, we were looking for a winter home in the Lakeland area.

We had located a home in a 55+ golf community that went up for sale and contacted Diana. The seller immediately had an open house and since we could not make arrangements to get there in time, Diana offered to go on our behalf and do a zoom call with us while going through the property. She went above and beyond with her efforts and in turn we were able to make an offer and settle on that property. Diana's willingness to do whatever it takes on behalf of her clients makes her an exceptional realtor, and for that, we are grateful and we have made a lifelong friend.

Deb W.

Selling my parents’ home was very emotional, but Martha made it so much easier and definitely contributed to a prompt and smooth closing.

She listened and understood our goals and was sensitive to the nature of our sale. Martha’s vast experience was exemplified by how she was able to be attentive to even the smallest of details. She was extremely responsive to the many calls, texts and emails throughout the sale process. Martha has a strong network of resources and great working relationships with lenders, title companies, inspectors and appraisers which helped to expedite the process and quickly eliminate issues that arose. She is professional, organized and efficient as well as personable and she took a personal interest in our family and selling the home. Martha helped us in so many small ways that I felt like I was her only client even though I know she is a very busy. I highly recommend her services.

TL Crosby

Craig was there every step of the way when we sold our home.

He is professional and relatable.

Kent Strevels

Martha was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure the sale happened.

She had a pulse on the market value and communicated that to us. We can definitely see why she is one of the top agents. We would definitely recommend her without any reservations to anyone that needs a real estate agent!

Todd and Mary Dorsey

Found the perfect home!

I was searching the internet months before planning to travel to Florida to purchase a home and June reached out to me with an email. We emailed back and forth multiple times and then spoke on the phone. She took my criteria and sent me messages with homes that fit what I was searching for. I changed my search area several times and June changed the search criteria. Since I was traveling from out of state, I made an appointment to visit homes a week in advance. Houses are selling so fast, as soon as they are listed, they are sold. With June's help, I narrowed the area down and was able to purchase this home on the first day we toured homes.

Vicki Slagle (Buyer) Client August 2021

From our first meeting, we knew Vickie was the one who would really work to sell our home.

Vickie marketed our home beyond all of our expectations. She was always attentive to our needs and followed up with us after each showing. The result was we had an offer within seven days. She was there for us throughout the inspection process up until closing. We highly recommend Vickie. If you want a true professional and a wonderful person to help sell your home.....she’s the one.

Donna Hahn

Thanks for all your help.

I imagine the stress that the seller must be feeling. Thank you for helping her so that she is all set for tomorrow. As realtors, sometimes we have to do everything to achieve a closing, but it is part of our job and we do it with pleasure. It has been a pleasure working with you Silvana.

Lakeland buyer

I had a very positive experience with Craig.

I was looking for an investment property to rent. Craig was very patient when I wanted o see properties all over Lakeland, Mulberry , and Valrico. He set appointments in a timely manner and was always on time for viewings. I received new listings almost daily. If you are looking for a positive, friendly, professional agent, Craig is your man! He found a property that I purchased in a little over a month.

In helping us find our home, we found Maria to be professional, personable, and patient.

Professional in that she is knowledgeable of all facets of the reality business; personable in that she cared about helping us and patiently worked with us long-distance to help us find the perfect home for our needs. We would highly recommend Maria.

Kirby Z

If you are looking for a realtor in Lakeland, FL, look no further.

Martha Harrison at Coldwell banker not only sold an older, outdated home, but she found the perfect replacement! Martha's attention to detail is extraordinary! From the professional pictures, to her knowledge of the area and the marketplace, to getting 2 closings to happen on the same day, Martha was in constant contact every step of the way and made a very stressful time so much easier. We couldn't have done it without Martha!

Laurie M.

Craig is literally the best real estate agent one can have the luxury of meeting.

This gentleman is humble and sincerely cares about the needs of his clients. My daughter and I flew in from New York with the mission of finding a wonderful house for me. Craig took us around and while we went back and forth he was nothing but patient. He didn’t push us to close a deal, he didn’t pressure us on making a decision which would benefit him instead he gave us the pros and cons of each place. We made a decision and our journey began. I was able to do everything including my closing from New York as Craig did all the running around, including numerous phone calls, on my behalf. I have truly never seen someone offer their services in such a generous way. Today I am a happy homeowner in Florida due to Craig Murrell. If you’re looking for happiness, a home which calls to you at the end of your day, then this man is the perfect individual to make that happen.

Anita Tripathi

Craig was great to work with!

As an out of state buyer he listened to what I was looking for in a new home and I found the perfect home. He was quick to respond to all my questions and got me the information I asked for as quickly as possible. I couldn’t be more pleased.

Pat Pizzino

Craig is very professional and totally excels at his job!

He sold my rental house in 72 hours. When you list your house with Craig be packed up and ready to move - he will sell it! Personable and easy to work with! Thanks Craig!

Sandy Daniell

We are so very appreciative of your outstanding help in selling my parents home so they could get to Carpenter's Home.

We know it was a lot of work and way beyond what was required to help them sell and close on their home. Thank you! You are a true professional! Your brokerage is very bless to have you in their camp.

DL Rayburn

My wife and I had the great pleasure of working with Silvana Knight for both buying of our home in 2007 and the selling of the home in 2015.

Silvana was very professional throughout the process and did a good job of keeping us updated of various things that came up. Silvana had the patience to help us through the purchase of our first home purchase in 2007. She didn’t pressure us to settle for anything less than the right home, and her patience and willingness to answer all our questions ensured that we got the best home among the dozens of homes we looked. When we sold the house in 2015, Silvana was instrumental in guiding us through all available options as we looked to sell our house. Silvana provided critical information well beyond the process of simply listing, showing, and ultimately selling our house that helped us secure the best possible outcome. We had first offer one day before putting on the market and got the price we expected. If we are going to move back to Lakeland, we will definitely ask Silvana to help us again. We have recommended and will continue to recommend Silvana to others.

She was always quick to respond to a call, text or email. I had a great experience with June. She is knowledgeable about the current market in Florida and if she wasn’t sure about a question I had, she researched it and came back with an answer in a very timely manner.

I would definitely work with June again if and when I buy or sell a home.

Connie Shields (Seller) Client April 2021

Craig is an excellent communicator; talks with clients on days and times others may not, which helps with flexibility if you work long hours.

Craig talks through your decisionmaking to ensure you arent making emotional or rash decisions and listens to what your preferences are with respect. He is very knowledgable and works to find the right house for the client and follows up with good and fast negotiations as well as an excellent referral network. Craig is a personable, professional individual who can help you close in under 30 days or remain patient with you, if you happen to pull out of an offer and take some more time to continue looking. Highly recommend.

Worked above and beyond to find us the right home We are so grateful we got to met Keith Walters!

He worked day and night until he found us our first home.. We were with another realtor for a yr, before we found him (and boy was that a nightmare). Keith was on top of everything everyday and stayed in close contact with us. He felt more like a friend, than our real estate agent. He was there every step of the way with any questions we had and always answered them so quickly too. Very kind, courteous and respectful of what you wanted in a home. I would absolutely recommend him and his team for all your realtor needs. We are so grateful for what he did for us! He got us in our first home so quickly and that's exactly what we had hoped for.

Emily is a great realtor.

As a first time homebuyer, she was there for us every step of the way. She calmed our worries, put up with us, and was just fantastic. She was always available for us and if she did not answer her phone when we called, she sent us a text message letting us know when she would call us back. She would send us houses to review and if we sent her houses we wanted to see, she would review the house for us and let us know about any issues with the house. She drove an hour both ways to show us houses. She was very knowledgeable and if she didn’t know the answer, she would find out and let us know the same day. Emily is very professional and very knowledgeable. I would definitely use Emily again to buy or sell my home and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

I live in Colorado and I am considering a second home so that I can be near my son and his family.

Even though he lives in the Tampa area I felt that the city of Lakeland, FL would suit my needs and preferences. I was referred to Maria and she was very responsive and very prompt in locating homes that could be of interest to me. I made a special trip to FL to view the homes. Maria is very professional. There is no hard sell and I really felt that she was looking out for me and my interests. Although I have not yet made a decision to buy a home, Maria gave me her undivided attention nonetheless. She will be my go to person if I come back to FL to resume my search. And, I am confident if the "right home" comes to market, Maria will be contacting me promptly.
