Stuart sold my house as it went on the MLS. Was it because he is well connected? Was it because of Kitty’s staging advice? I suspect it was a combination of the two. Regardless, Stuart saved me considerable grief and made a stressful process into something nearly fun. Kudos—and thanks!
Stuart was invaluable as my real estate agent when I had to sell my father's home. The sale was protracted and complicated, but Stuart was always professional, good natured, and philosophical about the many issues that arose in the time that the house was on the market. His diplomacy was integral in getting the sale completed. Stuart, along with his wife, Kitty, went way above and beyond in so many ways, but especially in getting an older property staged and set for sale.
My wife and I were living in New Zealand and wanted to move to the Sebastian area of Florida, which necessitated finding a house before moving. We paid a visit and had the good fortune to meet up with Stuart who not only found a suitable house but because it was a 'short sale' guided us through the minefield of complications related to such deals, even to the extent of protecting us from being panicked into offering a higher price when the bank started to get difficult. A big thank you for that Stuart. In addition to all that it was achieved at long distance before making the move from N.Z. Now that is first class service.
Unfortunately circumstances changed after a period of eighteen months which required a move back to our U.K. homeland and of course Stuart came to the rescue again and found a buyer without undue delay making sure we received the proper help with finances and U.S. tax regulations. A big thank you again for that Stuart.
Stuart is not only a highly efficient Realtor but also genuine friend.
Last year, I had the good fortune to work with Stuart on the sale of my mother’s home in Vero Beach. Due to her failing health, we found it necessary to move her to an Assisted Living Facility closer to my home in Chicago. Because of the distance involved, Stuart took responsibility not only for the usual tasks performed by realtors but also, with the invaluable assistance of his amazing wife, Kitty, going far above and beyond his job description. Stuart and Kitty held a yard sale, arranged for the donation of some items and even handled the Florida end of the over-the-road move of the things we felt Mom would want to keep. And of course, Stuart secured a buyer and sold the home for more than we expected, and the closing proceeded without a wrinkle. For stellar service, excellent results and the opportunity to work with a genuinely nice person, I really couldn’t recommend Stuart more highly.
My husband and I began our search for a home in the Vero Beach area during 2011 and asked Stuart to assist us. Stuart proved to be knowledgeable, timely and excellent at looking through the multitude of homes for sale and paring the list down to the ones that fit our parameters. Stuart was a real asset in developing our offer, he provided excellent research into the sales prices of homes in the area and presented his information in a clear, concise manner. We were delighted with our experience and would recommend Stuart to anyone looking to buy or sell their home in the Vero Beach and surrounding areas.
Stuart has represented me in a unique Real Estate sale, which was hard pressed for time on our side. He anticipated every issue, prepared us for these, fixed any problems, physical or legal with the property, we were buying, and he moved them out of the way, correctly and quickly. Through his professional efforts, we achieved our goal of a proper closing on time with everything in order, and we made our move-in date. He has also kept in touch, on his own, to check on how we are doing. I will seek him out, either to buy or sell, any next property.
We were hoping to move to the Vero area from Stuart, Fl. and had no knowledge of any realtors in the Vero area. My internet inquiry lead me to Stuart and I will admit that this was a fortunate inquiry for me. Stuart is professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and friendly. He showed me property that he knew would interest me and was very knowledgeable concerning the details for each and every property we inspected. Once we decided on the property we liked and our bid was accepted, Stuart took care of every detail after that and keep us informed and updated at all times. We are very happy to be in Vero now and I don't believe I could have chosen a better realtor to handle our transactions. Stuart made the entire process as easy and simple as posible. Thank you Stuart.
