What are the most important attributes in a Realtor? Analytical rigor, common sense, the human touch and an ability to execute. John and Maria Hoffman have all of these. I don't usually write reviews, but am making an exception here because these two, who happen to be some of the most successful (by sales) residential realtors in the State of Florida, left a strong impression on my wife and I. At the time, To underscore their ability to price and sell a house properly, my wife was 9 months pregnant when we decided to sell, so time is of the essence. My house sold in less than 48 hours with multiple offers, and we initially priced OVER what we thought the market would bear.
We approached John and Maria because we wanted to sell our 1923 Craftsman Bungalow near downtown Tampa. Our family was growing, and our priorities had changed in terms of neighborhood and school districts. Maria and John immediately recognized areas where the house required some maintenance before selling, and scheduled a contractor who quickly gave us a quote on the work. Our home was pre-marketed on Zillow, which created immediate buzz. By the time we had an open-house, there were 11 showings in one day. In less than 48-hours we had five full price offers and three bidding wars! I watched John handle the customers and anticipate issues in a very skilled manner. Our transaction closed yesterday and we are delighted. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JOHN AND MARIA HOFFMAN FOR YOUR FLORIDA REAL ESTATE NEEDS.
