Dear Lisa and Scott,
I just want to share with both you what a pleasure it has been to work with you over the past number of years. There’s been a lot of changes in our market during your 15+ year tenure at RE/MAX Realty Group and your dedication and professionalism has not gone unnoticed.
You have grown with the company and have consistently been in the top 10% of our office achieving such spectacular awards such as the 100% club a number oftimes. Quality is never an accident. It is the result of high intentions, sincere efforts, intelligent direction and skillful execution. These attributes have provided you with the pathway to the prestigious RE/MAX 100% CLUB.
You have also distinguished yourself as one of the elite in the real estate industry by becoming a member of the RE/MAX Hall of Fame in 2005. Extraordinary professional achievement, along with dedication and loyalty, qualifies you for a place of honor in this prestigious membership roster. You are indeed among a select group of high producing professionals.
Lisa and Scott, as I watch the success of many sales people through the company there is no doubt that your success comes from the true caring of each one of your clients. This one on one superior service continues to propel you to the top. I would recommend your team to any of our RE/MAX buyer/sellers with confidence that you will get the job done.
Thanks for being part of the RE/MAX Realty Group family. We wish you continued success.
George W. Sayers —
In September, 2011, my wife and I decided to purchase a foreclosed property, just 5 doors from our then current home. A sale that we could not afford to let pass us by.
Like most homeowners we need to sell our then current home to be able to finance the substantial rehabilitation of the foreclosed home. We were doing everything “Out of Pocket”, which was getting to be a huge financial burden with carrying 2 properties, not to mention the physical and emotional stress.
Firmly believing that the Doctor, who has himself as a patient, has a “fool” for a patient, I quickly adjusted my thinking.
As the Broker/Manager of RE/MAX Realty Group, I needed to select the agent who I felt was most capable of taking control of the situation and get our home sold. Not an easy choice when you have 120+ agents. It soon became clear to me that Lisa Shepard and Scott Friedman were the obvious choice.
Lisa Shepard has been a highly respected and productive agent at RE/MAX Realty Group for over 15 years.
In summation, it was our finest decision for 2011 & 2012. Through their highly unique marketing efforts and persistence we had a buyer within 30 days at close to our asking price.
Life became wonderful again.
Referring RE/MAX Realtors
Jeannie Steidel — Realtor with RE/MAX in the Lee County area since 1987
I have worked with Lisa at RE/MAX Realty Group since 1997 and Scott when he joined her in 2008. The three of us have formed a strong relationship over those years by working together towards a common cause…client satisfaction. Lisa and Scott are extremely client oriented, their professional and courteous attitude helps make them very successful Realtors. Their attention to detail when working with clients is a great indication of their love of real estate as well as their desire to assist buyers and sellers alike. The comfort and confidence I have in Lisa and Scott’s ability to handle my client’s needs allows me to refer my buyers and sellers to them knowing that they will always have my client’s as well as my best interests at heart.
The longevity that the three of us have with RE/MAX and each other speaks volumes and I look forward to working with Lisa & Scott for many years to come!
Eileene Sloan — Broker Associate with RE/MAX in the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Miami area since 1996.
Lisa and Scott came into my office one afternoon looking for information on the area back in 2005. I sold them 2 condos in a lovely boutique building just off Las Olas Boulevard. When they were ready to sell, they contacted me again and I helped with the sales.We have developed a wonderful relationship over the years. Lisa and Scott are delightful…professional, personable, trustworthy. They have the knowledge and work ethic that enables them to work well with buyers and sellers. We have been referring clients to each other in our respective service areas for some time now. I am always confident that the clients I refer to them will be in good hands.
On a personal level, I find Lisa & Scott’s zest for life to be very appealing!
Marcia McLaughlin — Realtor with Re/Max Alliance Group in Sarasota County since 1991
Lisa, Scott and I met in 2006 when they called to have me list a awesome investment property that they had redone. It was top notch because of their expertise in the Real Estate market. They did all the right things: great location, redo was incredible, and a positive cash flow. It was such a
pleasure working for them to sell their home. I have referred clients of mine to their area. My buyers were very impressed with their professionalism and the service they provided as well as being totally honest with them about homes they were looking for.
It’s nice to work with professionals…like Lisa & Scott and I look forward to our next deal together!
Edmond & Linda Weglarz — purchased a house & we represented them
We are licensed Florida real estate agents. When we sold our home we considered the possibility of purchasing a Short Sale. We did not have much experience in short sales so we approached Lisa Shepard and Scott Friedman to enlist their expertise in assisting us with the Short Sale process . We both liked the Bell Tower Park development and focused our energy on the Courtyard homes. During the process we submitted eight offers in one year. Never once during that time in which we were submitting offers did either Lisa or Scott fail to show enthusiasm or interest in looking at one more property!! Whenever an issue would pop up they addressed it immediately, and provided us with an answer. Everything was done in a cheerful, timely and professional manor. We eventually had an offer accepted on a property, which was the exact model we wanted and to our surprise it closed rather quickly. It was such a delightful experience having Lisa and Scott handle all the negotiations and paperwork for us that we would highly recommend them to assist you with your Real Estate needs.
Leora & Dave Andersen — moved to Florida from another Country & bought a house
Lisa and Scott,
We would like to thank both of you for all of your assistance in the purchase of our home in Cape Coral. We have bought 3 houses in our married life and this was the most pleasurable experience ever! Your responsiveness and professionalism made an impression on us. We always knew the latest because you kept us up to date and informed every step of the purchase process. Despite some challenges with the seller you were able to diffuse the situation by your professional and calm demeanor. It was evident that you are experienced and know what to do.
We thought that since we were living in Seoul, South Korea that this would produce some challenges. We were still kept informed every step of the way both by email and on the phone.
It was such a pleasurable experience working with both of you. We will recommend you to anyone who needs to work with the best. You two are truly raising the bar for the real estate professional!
Doug & Kim Shepson — sold home & moved to another city in Florida
Thank you guys so much for everything! You took excellent care of us. And I’m impressed we have the screen back! Thanks for your persistence!
As our friends have asked how things are going, I have told them of your commitment to a high ethical standard and the value you place on a solid reputation. I relayed how you even held your commission check at the title company until we went back on Saturday. Your actions speak volumes, and know already that your commitment to excellence has been passed on. If anyone comes in to your office and would like to speak to someone as a reference for you guys, I would be more than happy to.
Now about a check on our counter…I never intended for YOU to pay for the lights! Doug relayed that you would not take no for an answer and it didn’t seem negotiable. Thank you, but you obviously didn’t have to do that.
I just wanted to let you know we appreciate all that you’ve done. We’re really excited about moving in!! We have a wonderful home!! Mark Feb. 6 on your calendars–I’ll be giving you a call!!
Blessings to you guys,
Buyers & Sellers
Karen Wiss — bought a house in Fort Myers and sold a condo in New York
I met Lisa when I found a house I liked. She called me right back to let me know it was under contract and asked what I was looking for. I told her and she agreed to meet me the next day! We saw several homes, then went into a neighborhood I had previously seen a for sale sign in and the listing Realtor had not returned my calls. Lisa asked me to wait a minute in my car and she called the agent and got me into see the house! I was thrilled and soon made an offer! Lisa introduced me to her husband/partner Scott and they was walked me through everything as it was my first purchase in Florida. There were some tough contract negotiations relating to repairs that Lisa and Scott took care of that ended up reducing the price of my purchase! Not a day went by that I didn’t hear something from them which made me feel better as I was an out-of-state buyer! They were there for my walk-through, closing and supported me all the way! They also assisted me in finding a RE/MAX agent in New York to list my condo. They stayed in contact with the New York agent to make sure that everything was done seamlessly. It went under contract within a month which was perfect timing for my move to Florida! Lisa and Scott are a great team and I feel a lovely friendship growing when I get to Florida!
Arcy and Tony Esposito — purchased a condo, sold the condo, then bought a house
Dear Lisa and Scott,
We would just like to thank you so much for all your hard work helping us sell our condo and locating our new home. Little did we know that when you helped us ten years ago to buy our condo that you would then sell that unit for us and find us a new house. The fact of the matter is that when we decided to sell our Gullwing we called you first. Anyone who would send Christmas cards to a one time client for ten years deserved our business!
You and Scott were highly professional and very pleasant to deal with. You worked tirelessly to find us a new home and never lost patience with Tony and his ways. Your guidance and knowledge of the market were invaluable.
Sandy & Larry Oehlers — sold their vacation condo
Dear Lisa and Scott:
Larry and I would just like to say how grateful we are that you were our real estate agents in the recent sale of our home in Fort Myers. You were both spectacular!
We were trying to sell our home for over two years by ourselves and then we came to you and you were able to find a buyer.
Your professionalism and knowledge was so helpful in our sale. We had some trials that arose but your were always there and followed thru immediately with any questions we had.
We would highly recommend you to any potential client because you can get the job done!
We sincerely hope our paths cross again and we wish you both success in the future. If you every need any recommendations, please feel free to contact us.
Chris & Renee Liekweg — sold home & moved out of state
I began writing this thank you note in long hand and ran out of room, so I thought I would drop this type message inside the note. I know it probably loses some of it’s emotion and authenticity in it’s typed format, but we just couldn’t find a thank you note big enough to hold all the appreciation we had to share with you.
We wanted you to know how grateful we are that you stuck it out with us. As a newly married couple, we needed and often relied on your guidance through this ever-changing short sale environment. Having not been versed or ever having experienced a short sale, we didn’t know what to expect or how to conduct ourselves. Yet, we also knew that by the nature of the transaction, there was a good chance we were going to be taken advantage of by the potential buyer and therefore needed someone who was a sheep in wolves clothing to navigate us through what we assumed would be a very difficult time. The difficulty was proven true, as Renee and I repeatedly had to step out in faith in the hope that we were doing the right thing. We knew we were making decisions that were against the grain (like staying consistent on our payments) and thought one day, you might just give up on us … but you didn’t. You stood by our side the whole process through and agreed with our decisions. You allowed us the freedom to believe in what we were doing was right, even when it was difficult; thank you for that. This experience is something that Renee and I will never forget and as a newly married couple, are forever impacted by it as a result.
We can’t imagine how many countless emails, phone calls, voicemails you have had to entertain from the buyer, the buyer’s agent, the law firm and even us, for that matter, in the hopes of getting this deal closed. You conducted yourself in a manner that commanded your presence in the SWFL real estate marketplace as nothing short of a true professional, and we were the beneficiaries of the. Thank you for always putting us, as well as our intentions before your own and representing us in a way you would represent a family member.
Rest assured that we would recommend your services to everyone who is in the market in SWFl in the hopes of making real estate, once again, “fun” for you.
We will definitely remain in touch and look forward to dropping in on you at your office the next time we need a trip to SWFL (which will probably be in January, considering the 5 feet of snow we will be under up here in Wisconsin).
Please note updated contact information should you need it. And please, should you ever need a recommendation for a marketing piece you may be creating or simply to convince a potential client to work with you, please don’t hesitate to contact us … We have nothing but glowing reviews!
