Top Ten Real Estate Agents List in Tampa Bay

Tampa, FL, 2017-Sep-30 — /EPR REAL ESTATE NEWS/ — Throughout recent years, Tampa has proven to be a booming real estate market. With exquisite waterfront homes, a bustling downtown district, and local attractions in the form of Busch Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo, and The Florida Aquarium, it’s no surprise that people from all over the country are flocking to homes in the Tampa Bay area.

When attempting to purchase a home, however, it is vital to have an experienced real estate professional guide you through the process in order to have as much money on the transaction as possible. The very same could be said about selling a home, as well.

Like any other industry, it can be difficult to sift through the incompetent professionals and find the best in the business.

Listed below are the top ten most trustworthy, experienced, and reliable real estate agents in Tampa Bay:

Number 10. Anthony Malafronte
A sales and marketing expert who has spent over 20 years working with Fortune 50 companies, Anthony Malafronte brought his skills and abilities to real estate over the past decade and has become a pivotal force within the local Tampa market.

His background in marketing, sales, and presentations allows him to showcase homes in an unforgettable way, illuminating the main selling points of a home and adeptly matching buyers with a home perfect for them. He is responsive, proactive, and easily reached, making him a solid choice for a real estate agent.

Number 9. John Pestalozzi
John Pestalozzi is renowned for his flexibility when it comes to communicating with clients. Whether buyers and sellers would like remote presentations, text message-only communication, or virtual HD tours of his current properties, he is able to accommodate them quickly and effectively.

Pestalozzi has resided in Tampa for over 37 years, which has provided him with a valuable insight into Tampa’s real estate market and community. He is aware that the search for Tampa homes begins online, which is why he spends extensive time and energy capturing high-quality photography and video footage of the properties he works with.

Number 8. Janet Lopez
Many real estate agents have less than a decade’s worth of experience in the industry. Janet Lopez has nearly thirty years of professionalism under her belt, and her sales record reflects this. Her intense focus on customer service has proven to be a worthwhile endeavor, as over 60% of her clients are referrals from those she has worked with in the past.

With a solid understanding of contract law, negotiation, and Tampa’s undulating real estate market, Janet strives to do all that she can in order to make the home buying and selling process as pleasant as possible.

Number 7. Crystal Brady
Crystal Brady, a native Floridian who has an undying passion for the state, focuses her real estate endeavors in Pasco and Hillsborough counties. She specializes in dealing with first-time homebuyers who are uninformed about what to expect when it comes to the transaction process.

Before she became a real estate agent, Brady worked as a customer relations manager for a property management company, solidifying her ability to work with clients of all types and help connect them with a home that will perfectly suit their needs.

Number 6. Kristy Darragh
As a veteran of the real estate industry with over 25 years of experience, Kristy has spent nearly three decades helping her clients not only purchase or sell a home, but also with listing, consulting, staging, and other processes that are integral to transactions in the real estate industry.

A self-admitted workaholic, Kristy Darragh spends much of her free time being involved in organizations throughout Tampa Bay, where she can not only better hone her craft as a real estate agent, but also benefit the professionals around her.

Number 5. Ray Mihara
Quick closing, responsive service, and strong negotiation tactics are just a few of Ray Mihara’s attributes that clients praise in their stellar review of the Tampa real estate agent. He is particularly well-versed in property investing, helping clients make informed financial decisions when they are looking to purchase a property that will later be sold for a higher price.

Due to his many accomplishments, Ray Mihara is among the top salesmen in the country, and consistently provides his clients with thorough, informative updates about the current state of their transaction.

Number 4. Bill Dallas
Like Ray Mihara, Bill Dallas is an expert on real estate investment, and is a powerful primary source for his clients to consult when it comes to deciding which properties to keep an eye on, and which properties to avoid.

In the past seven years, Bill Dallas has managed to significantly increase his sales volume from year to year, and is showing no signs of slowing down. Throughout his career, his reliability as a quality, honest real estate agent has set him apart from his peers.

Number 3. Wendy Ross
In terms of sales volume, Wendy Ross is ranked as one of the top 100 real estate agents by The Greater Tampa Association of Realtors. According to her past clients, he has been declared to be one of the most trustworthy real estate agents in the area, and has a reputation of being kind, approachable, and outstandingly quick with her services.

Due to her expertise in the field, it is no surprise she has won multiple awards that commend her outstanding customer service that helps her clients navigate the convoluted pathways of buying and selling a home.

Number 2. Raquel Zapata
Zapata has worked extensively with clients who seek relocation, luxury properties, vacant land, and those who are first-time homebuyers. Her extensive knowledge of Tampa’s real estate market equips her with the capability to ensure that all of her clients’ needs are met.

She is a member of the National Association of Realtors and the Greater Tampa Association of Realtors, and is heavily involved in both organizations. Giving back to the community is just as important to Raquel Zapata as serving her clients, and she strives to use her skills as a real estate professional to serve others, both on and off the clock.

Number 1. Realtor Joseph Lewkowicz
Joseph Lewkowicz has been involved in Tampa real estate for over 40 years. He has a personal sales record of 3,000+ independently sold homes, which is a number that entire sales teams struggle to compete with. As one would expect from someone with over four decades of experience in the industry, Joseph Lewkowicz’s services benefit clients of any type, whether they are first-time buyers, those looking to sell, or those looking to invest in property.

He is nationally ranked in the top 1% of Coldwell Banker agents, an achievement that earned him an invitation to the exclusive Celebration of Success event in 2016. His personal mantra “no one works harder to sell your home!” is something that he has consistently proven throughout his career, having connected thousands of buyers with a home that is a perfect fit.

Joseph Lewkowicz specializes in North Tampa, frequently working with properties in areas such as Lutz and Carrollwood. He also holds livestream conference calls on the second Thursday of every month that allow members of the community to interact with him directly, an endeavor that not many in the industry have taken advantage of, Joseph has thousands of satisfied clients that can attest to his unwavering dependability as a real estate professional.

Tampa is a haven within the Sunshine State, and has plenty to offer those who are looking for a home to enjoy the city’s natural beauty. Real estate transactions go far more smoothly with the help of a professional who knows the area, cares about their clients, and has a proven track record of successful negotiations.

Living the Dream – Selling Real Estate in Bavaro, Punta Cana

Most people only dream of living their dream life. Others go out there and live their dream. Yes, Scott Medina is really living it up in Bavaro, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Not so long ago, Scott was a South Florida real estate broker; in fact he has lived and conducted business in the US for as long as he can remember.

Living the Dream - Selling Real Estate in Bavaro, Punta Cana

Why the change in location you ask? Well, originally from Puerto Rico, Scott decided to relocate to the Caribbean when the US economy hit rock bottom. With the plummeting real estate market in the US, more and more people found themselves in a flux. Scott, however, managed to find a lustrous silver lining on this grey cloud hounding one and all. The escalating property prices in North America and tumultuous financial issues in Europe found retirees, smart investors and anyone with a love for pristine beaches, tropical weather and the good life flocking to the Dominican Republic.

A smart opportunist, Scott has opened a fully functional office in the heart of Los Corales, Bavaro beach. After chasing the previous tenant of this property for a while, Scott finally saw his dream of having an office right at the beach, come true. Jumping the gun, some might wonder? But according to Medina, it was the best risk ever taken by him. In mere two months, he was toasting his success with his first walk-in sale!

Apparently the client stumbled upon his office while strolling on the beach and immediately recognized him from the hot TV show he was part off – HGTV House Hunters International, which airs three or four times a month and has over 95 million takers! “They have captured on film my relocation from Miami to Punta Cana. A memory that will last forever now I have on video to share with the world, my family, my friends and future generations to come” says Scott.

Scott’s main idea to have an office in the most favored area of Punta Cana was to show his potential customers, the kind of life they would sign up for, if they chose to live in this little slice on heaven. Unlike his counterparts, Scott has deliberately decided not to open shop on the main street area, as he definitely grabs the attention of maximum tourists taking a blissful walk on the beach.

Already selling second homes, beachfront properties and condos in the area for four years, Scott is all set to diversify his business. Adding more feathers to his already vivid hat, Medina is now offering mortgage and insurance brokerage services by working with local banks and local insurance companies. Also, with a professional interior decorator now on board, Scott will not only get you your dream house, but can also doll it up for you.

With the turn of the decade, the day when the aggressive, hardworking pack of baby boomers from North America (a whopping 80 million), will flock to Dominican Republic for a high standard of living and a low cost of living, is not very far. After all, which smarty will pass up the opportunity to live the best life he can in his retirement years?

While the upward trend of Real Estate in Punta Cana saw several agents taking the plunge in selling condos in the Dominican Republic, Scott is far from worried about competition. In fact, he has recently hired several agents, both locally and internationally so that the dream of buying property in Punta Cana can come true for more and more people from around the globe. Fortunately for him, many of his competitors have already hung up their boots and left town. Scott, on the other hand, has paid the entire year’s rent in advance, only to scream from the rooftop, and he and Punta Cana are here to stay.

Prime Spanish real estate consisting of an entire holiday complex will be given away in this raffle of the year

The media has covered a number of raffles over the past few months in which a house or property is given away to one lucky winning ticket holder. None of these can compete however with the latest property draw ‘San Blas’ (www.sanblasforsale.com) unveiled this week. The raffle will see San Blas, a magnificently fully restored old Spanish Cortijo set in the beautiful Andalucían countryside, and worth around a cool E1.5 Million be handed over to the prize winner holding the lucky ticket costing a mere 25 Euros. More unusual about this raffle is the fact that the lucky ticket holder will not only win a stunning 4 bedroom house but a complete self catering holiday complex too. The San Blas raffle is truly unrivalled by any other property draw and offers the winner a truly life changing prize.

It has been quite an emotional journey for English owners Wayne and Dave who have spent the past three years lovingly restoring the property to a quite remarkable standard. For family reasons however they have been forced to make the difficult decision to say goodbye to the home and business of their dreams and return to the UK. The recent credit crunch and property crisis have led the pair to do some lateral thinking and they have come up with an alternative and novel way of selling this outstanding property. To the fortunate winner Wayne and Dave leave behind all the fruits of their hard work: a beautifully restored house, along with seven classic white-washed self catering cottages and apartments, a swimming pool, and 15 acres of breathtaking countryside. Further information and pictures of the entire property can be viewed at www.sanblasforsale.com. There is also an additional online booking website for the self-catering business.

The raffle has been carefully drawn up with full legal advice and meets all legal requirements. Each ticket will cost 25 Euros and can be purchased easily online at the www.sanblasforsale.com website, and those purchasing 4 tickets will receive an additional ticket free. Those participating in the raffle can view online the number of tickets sold which is updated daily. Every ticket holder will be kept updated on the draw and informed within 48 hours of all tickets being sold. The grand draw itself will be overseen by a number of independent Spanish solicitors and this will also be filmed. The video of the draw will be made available for everyone to watch on the www.sanblasforsale.com website within 24 hours of the draw taking place.

Looking for Spanish real estate? Look no more because the lucky winner will receive the freehold and full & clear title deeds to the fabulous Cortijo San Blas which will include the 4 bedroom main house along with 7 self catering units comprising 12 bedrooms, 9 kitchens, 12 showers, 13 toilets, plus 15 acres and a great swimming pool – pretty spectacular for just a 25 Euro stake. The winner will also be handed over the deposits and all future bookings at the popular San Blas holiday property. With the self catering units being rented from 190 to 365 Euros per week each, this will provide the winner with a profitable start to their new life and business in the Spanish sunshine.

Also unique to this property raffle is the fact that tickets will retain their full face value as they can be exchanged at any time before the draw for accommodation at the complex. Indeed Wayne and Dave are keen to encourage as many people as possible to view the property whether passing through the area or staying to see for themselves what a fantastic home and ready-made holiday business awaits the lucky winner.

To purchase tickets or to find out more about the most exciting property raffle ever launched and the chance to enjoy a fantastic new life in the Spanish sun visit www.sanblasforsale.com – and remember, somebody has to win and it could very well be you!

Home-buying expert SecureASale are helping sellers sell their house quickly without agency fees.

SecureASale, the brainchild of two London-based ex estate agents, Tim Jackson and Eli Robinson, is a home-buying business that provides cash for homes, offering sellers up to 90% of the market value of their property in cash. This gives sellers who need to sell their house quickly the freedom to move on without waiting for a property market that is slowing day-by-day.

Having met many clients with bad experiences of dealing with home-buying companies, Eli and Tim have designed a new service, SecureASale.co.uk that addresses many of the failings within the industry.

As the housing market continues to falter, those that have no choice but to sell their house quickly to release equity or to stop repossession have been desperately seeking a means to sell their property quickly without losing all the money they ploughed in.

Past seller Renzo Castellano said “What is generally a cumbersome process in the UK, especially in recent times, turned out to be pretty straightforward when dealing with SecureASale.”

By focusing only on North and North-West London, areas the directors know extremely well, Eli and Tim are able to personally visit all of their clients for an initial consultation and make a formal cash offer there and then rather than just relying on faceless bank valuations like their competitors do.

While most of the larger sell-quick companies tend to act only as large lead-generating machines, (passing the actual purchase on to unproven third parties), SecureASale‘s directors purchase all their properties directly and have a large cash fund to enable swift transactions that are often completed in just a few days.

Unlike many high-profile companies, SecureASale.co.uk never charges a valuation fee, or in fact any fees at all to the client. SecureASale even contribute towards the vendors solicitor’s fees.

Tim Jackson, director of SecureASale comments, “There are many reasons why people require a quick home buying service, from people inheriting a property to sellers under the threat of repossession if they cannot sell quick. Other people are simply fed-up of being stuck in a property chain and want a no-hassle, cash buyer service to help them move on quicker.”

Whilst the offers SecureaSale makes are often below the amount a vendor would receive on the open market, there are no agency fees to pay and the offers are guaranteed and the process quick. With over 65% of deals falling through prior to exchange this year (source RICS), a professional service allowing people to sell their house quickly without waiting for a stagnant market is a welcome initiative.

You Can Now Own a Piece of America!

A New York City Company is giving away free land in Alaska on their website. Plots though are only one square in size, but you can get square-inch parcels in all other 50 states free as well.

In 1867, United States Secretary of State William H. Seward signed an agreement with Russia in which the United States purchased the territory of Alaska from them for the huge amount of $ 7.2 Million. It became known as “Seward’s Folly,” in light of the vast wasteland that was Alaska. Today, some 140 years later, you can actually do better, if you’re in the market for real estate. You can get land in Alaska…free.

American Acres, Inc., a New York City company, has found a very unique way to provide the American dream of land ownership free. Well, at least an affirmation of that dream. Let’s say you want to own land…in Alaska. Well how about starting with a single square inch plot? Yes, a ONE-SQUARE INCH PARCEL! The land is made available through their website at ownapieceofamerica.com. In fact, you can get a one-square inch parcel in any of the 50 states, also free.

These “‘mini-estates”, which of course are available for each state, can’t be built on, lived on or retired on; Owners cannot make any improvements or develop the parcels. Owners shall not occupy the parcels and must grant rights of ingress and egress over their parcel. But they are completely free of additional responsibility and obligations. And the fun of bragging about owning land in the United States is priceless, to say the least!” And oh, what a wonderful gift it makes!

Although use of the land may be limited, the responsibilities (as one would hope) are equally minimal. No paying taxes of any kind…ever! Owners need not mow their lawn, take out the trash, throw away junk mail, participate in local jury duty, or endure any other daily adversities associated with being a land owner.

So, it has been asked, “What is the purpose of owning a one square inch of land…anywhere?” “What can I do with such a tiny piece of earth?” Well, if you don’t have a sense of humor…or an imagination, then these personalized gifts…legal, yes legal, Deeds to each state just aren’t for you. They are the perfect gift for the person who has everything. It’s the most wonderful unique gift idea for a person who dreams of living in, say California…or Hawaii, or yes, Alaska…or anywhere where they don’t live now.

It’s great for all gift giving occasions including Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations, birthdays, Christmas, etc.. Just go to ownapieceofamerica.com to learn more about the Deeds. In fact you might want to get a Deed to the United States – one Deed that entitles you to ownership of one square inch of land in all 50 states at once (there is a fee for this 50 State Deed). Check it out at their website.
