To Whom It May Concern:
Friends introduced us to the beautiful beach of Siesta Key 5
years ago. We have vacationed there at least once a year since then, and have
even brought family members down on an annual Thanksgiving week vacation with
us. While down in Siesta Key in November 2002, my husband starting browsing the
Internet for properties. He came across John and Nancy Werner’s website and logged on to see what was available. My husband immediately liked John and
Nancy for their forethought with the use of the Internet. He logged onto the
website and listed our requirements for a place in Siesta Key, and within a day
John contacted us in regards to some available condos for sale. We were only
looking at this time, as it was a spur of the moment type idea. You get that way
when relaxing on Siesta Key beach. We met with John a few days later and began
looking at condos.
We were immediately impressed with John’s demeanor. We had purchased
several homes in the past and were used to overbearing real estate agents. John
was completely relaxed and never overtaxing. He let us look and gave us his
honest opinion about the condos and the land around it, but he never tried to
sell us on any one place. One of the last few condos we looked at that first day
was perfect for us.
Of course all vacations end and we were headed up north. I remained in
contact with John during the course of 2 weeks to ask him questions about the
development and the condo itself. We finally decided to make an offer on the
place and went from there. John remained calm and cool during the whole purchase
process. He was extremely professional and courteous throughout the process and
I would highly recommend him to any of my family or friends who wish to purchase
a home around the Sarasota area. I only wish all other real estate agents were
Additionally, I should mention that my husband and I are in our mid-30’s.
Why is this mentioned? Well the purchase price of our condo was a little on the
high side for most 30-yr-olds. John never made us feel like we couldn’t afford
the place. He treated us with the utmost respect, which I greatly appreciated.
John and Nancy,
I received this great email. (I assume they got my name as the Sarasota
Association of Realtors President.) Anyway, I thought I should it
pass it on to you.
Congratulations on such a great letter. You must have obviously made an impression
for her to seek someone out to write to. It is always refreshing to
get compliments for hard work.
Keep up the great customer service.

Subject: Wonderful Agents
I am writing to tell you about the wonderful experience my husband and I had
with Nancy Werner
(John & Nancy Werner, ReMax Properties, Sarasota Fl.). My husband and I were
in Florida for a quick trip to look at property and we were lucky enough to meet
Nancy Werner. Nancy was extremely helpful, extremely nice (she even gave us the names of several restaurants, hotels
and sites to see) and spent two full days with us looking at many places. She
assisted us in finding the condo of our dreams at Burnt Store Marina, with the
help of an agent that she works with there.
I was a real estate agent for a year in Boston and quit because other agents were so mean and so competitive
that it became impossible for me to continue. That is not my personality and I was so happy to meet the wonderful agents we had in Florida who worked
together, did not pressure us in any way and were extremely nice to us and more importantly, to each other. It seems to me that people are always ready
to write a letter when they have had a bad experience but not when they have had a good one. I would rather tell you how nice someone was. It was a
thoroughly enjoyable experience. Nancy represents what all other real estate
agents should aspire to. We couldn't have done any better.
Not knowing Realtors in the Sarasota area, and having had a bad
selling a prior piece of property in the area, John & Nancy were
indeed a breath of fresh air. They were very proactive, kept us well
informed on events relating to the sell, kept our best interest in mind,
sold the property for a good price in a reasonable period of time, but
by far the most important traits they posse are that they are practical
and ethical in their dealings.
As a side note, after the sale, they also helped us acquire a rental unit,
for a couple weeks, so that my mother could continue to enjoy the beaches
on Siesta Key, and the area she knows and enjoys. They do a
great job, I would use them again or recommend them to any of my
family and friends.

Being a first-time homebuyer can be extremely stressful, not
to mention scary. John and Nancy made the whole experience quite comfortable for
me. From the beginning of the process to the very end, they made me feel as
though I was in good hands. They were very patient, answered any questions I had
and constantly reassured me that they would be there to take care of all the
details. From the first step of looking at many homes through to the offer and
the closing, John and Nancy were both professional, courteous and knowledgeable.
I am happy to say that I am now a proud homeowner thanks to their support and
guidance. They made my first experience buying a home, a very pleasant one.
Thanks John and Nancy,

John and Nancy were great help in finding our second home in Florida. In our
situation of not living in Florida, I really appreciated their follow through
and having everything organized when we arrived. We only had a few days to make
our decision and it really helped that all of our appointments were set prior
to. John showed us various parts of town and acquainted us with the benefits and
draw backs of each. It would have been a much more daunting task without their
assistance. I am planning on looking for other property in the area soon to use
as a rental and I will definitely enlist their assistance. Thanks again for your
John and Nancy were extremely helpful in helping us to find the right condo.
We cast a wide net on line looking for help from out of town, and they responded
faster and more efficiently than any other brokers we tried to contact. We
presented them with a very tight schedule for showings and they responded by
working out a program that enabled us to look at over 20 homes in 3 days. The
details of the closing were handled without any mishaps, and the whole deal went
We appreciate their help and would recommend them to anyone looking for
property in Sarasota.

Thanks John and Nancy. You found us our dream
lot. Because we could view on-line by email properties within our price range in
the areas in which we were interested, we saved many hours of running around and
trying to track down information. We shopped from our living room and got a

John & Nancy are great real
estate agents. I bought my condo on-line after looking at excellent pictures
they sent me. They were very efficient, helpful and
co-operative. I will never hesitate to do business with them again.

Dear John and Nancy,
We would once again like to thank you for all you have done for us to allow
us the enjoyment of our new home. Our search on the web took us to several
websites, but you were the only realtor who kept in touch and made us feel like
you were really doing all you could to help us find our home from over 500 miles
away. Your patience, time and personal efforts were much appreciated. We are so
glad we were able to find you and feel as if we had already made our first
friend in Sarasota! Without your assistance and tireless efforts, we could not
have made the transition so easily. We are enjoying our home and it really is
all that we were looking for and in the location we desired so much. Thank you

After twenty years in the healthcare field, and as vice-president of a
national chain, I had little time to spend looking for housing to purchase in
Sarasota. Seeking a career change to Sarasota area property investment, I was
living in Charlotte, NC at the time. I was referred to John and Nancy Werner,
with Re/Max in Sarasota. They promptly responded to my request
for help. To make a long story short, I developed such a trust in John and
Nancy, that they found a home for me that I purchased without even looking at
it, except for the photos they emailed to me. Well, it was just perfect!
Now, John and Nancy have assisted me in the purchase of another home, a
condo, and have one home pending and one listed for sale. With so much at stake
in the real-estate market, I will continue to trust only the Werners for my
property investments. Their honesty, integrity and personal commitment to
quality service is rare, and that is exactly the values I need for my new
business to be successful.
