2016 & 2017 "Best of Sarasota Award" As The Area's Top Agents
The SRQ Duo of Jamie and Mark are recipients of the 2016 & 2017 Best of Sarasota Award as the area's top rated Real Estate Agents and within the top 1% of sales volume for Sarasota and Manatee Counties. Their Real Estate Team specializes in Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch Real Estate services. They respond faster, answer phone calls/texts/emails at all hours, negotiate prices down to that "extra-extra" discount, and generally out-hustle any other agent team out there. They are personable, fun, and energetic - always striving to make the home buying and selling experience enjoyable and stress-free. Don't take our word for it, read their reviews here: The SRQ Duo Reviews. The SRQ Duo has closed over $120M in transactions using innovative techniques and by just plain working harder than everyone else.
When you choose The SRQ Duo as your real estate agents, you get them both - with differing yet complimentary skills. Jamie is an expert on searching for properties, with an eye on design and functionality. While Mark's skills are with numbers, with a keen ability to negotiate - from contract to closing. You won't be handed off to a less experienced agent within the office - no bait and switch as other successful teams often do.
The SRQ Duo represents buyers, sellers, and renters.
For buyers and renters, they will meet with you in person, or over the phone, and do an in-depth analysis of your wants and needs. Searching online is great, but at some point you will require the help of a local agent with expertise in the process to help guide you through the transaction. They know the area very well, have likely seen most of the properties already, and can relate their experience on which ones may look better in sneaky online photos than they actually do in person. Based on your detailed criteria, they will canvas multiple sources of listed and unlisted properties to narrow your search down to a manageable number of homes. These homes will be presented to you for consideration and potential showing. If you find others online that you’d like details on, simply provide the address and they can dig all of the info, including fees, additional pictures/videos, and their professional opinion of price. They understand that your time is very valuable, and will only show you properties that you want to see. For showings, you will be transported in luxury by The SRQ Duo. Once you have found the new home and lifestyle that you've dreamed of, the team sets out to negotiate the best price, set forth in a fair and buyer-friendly contract, and will ensure a smooth and enjoyable closing.
For sellers, they will provide you a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) of your property's value. This assessment is based on recently sold and currently active listings in the vicinity of your home or condo. They will then schedule an appointment to see your property in person, to adjust the value based on finishes, features, condition, lot orientation, etc. At this stage it's important to have an open and honest discussion on price, strategy, and realistic expectations. The team refuses to over-promise on results. Any agent that does so is simply trying to get your listing at any cost. If you give them the honor of listing your property, The SRQ Duo uses the full extent of their Fortune 500 branding and marketing experience in order to get your home sold fast and on price target. From direct mailing and print advertising, to online ads and social media presence - selling a house in this competitive market demands a multifaceted and comprehensive approach. They put in the extra effort and spend their own money up front, at risk, in order to sell your home. From professional high-quality photos, production quality HD videos, and aerial drone footage - to 3D virtual tours, professionally written online content, and frequent open houses - they do what it takes to blow away your expectations.
