WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
“My wife and I have been looking for our dream vacation house in the Florida Keys for 4 years. After reviewing and researching hundreds of homes in this time period, we were exhausted. Scot and Amy Ferguson of Engle & Volkers of Belleair Bluffs came to the rescue. We have known Scott and Amy for years as social friends, but not as real estate agents and representatives. My wife and I discussed our displeasure with the real estate agents in the Keys and asked Scott and Amy if they knew anyone who could help with our search. To our surprise Scot and Amy advised us they would be more than happy to help us to purchase our dream home in the Keys. At this point we knew we were in good hands. My wife and I had a meeting with Scott and Amy to discuss or goals and desires of the home we were in search of. The rest is history, Scott and Amy went to work immediately, setting up multiple showings based on our limited time schedule. After looking at numerous listings on line, we narrowed it down to 10 homes. Scott and Amy set up the showings, even going as far as printing out an itinerary and detailed information on each property. Scott and Amy kept in contact with us daily to keep us up to speed and also keeping the other real estate agents on time and aware. We reviewed all the homes and fell in love with the very last one of the showings.
This is where the fun begins. Scott and Amy informed the other agents of our intention to make an offer on the home and was quickly made aware that they must first join the Monroe County Real Estate Board, for a small fortune I’m sure. Scott and Amy didn’t blink an eye and joined immediately. Scott and Amy then negotiated an agreeable purchase contract for both parties, another enormous task as the sellers for this home lived in upstate New York and had no access to email. As time approached for our inspection period and due diligence on the home reached its deadline, our schedule ran in to a log jam and simply would not allow us any free time from work. I explained this to Scott and Amy and asked for advice and to my surprise Scott insisted that he would fly to Key West and rent a car to meet the home inspector. We were speechless, who ever heard of a real estate agent flying 500 miles away to meet a home inspector, certainly not me. I felt like Scott and Amy were actually family.
The sale of the home went very smooth at the title company even though our mortgage broker made multiple mistakes that Scott and Amy had to clean up. We cannot Thank Scott and Amy Ferguson enough for helping us from start to finish on purchasing our dream vacation home. Customers and friends for life.“
