“My wife and I moved to Captiva in 1980 and bought our first home and then sold our last home on Sanibel in 2014. In those 34 years, we have bought and sold dozens of properties with only one regret and that we had not come to know Teresa earlier so that she could have handled our various moves and purchases and sales. In our 34 years on Sanibel and Captiva we have never come across anyone who provides the service, has the client's interest at heart and combines this with integrity and knowledge which is exhibited throughout the entire process. We did not know Teresa well before she became our agent but whoever deals with her will end up with a highly competent, hardworking agent and a friendship as well.”
“I am writing to express my appreciation for the terrific work that Teresa Baker did for me and my husband serving as our real estate agent during our hunt for a property on Sanibel Island. We met Teresa through happenstance: your firm had a listing we were interested in, and she was available to work with us last summer when we were in town. We liked her immediately, and she understood our taste. Although we were quite unfocused in what we were looking for - both in geography and in the type of property we might want - she had a good intuition for the listings that we would like. She set up email alerts through MLS, but always called or emailed if she saw something she thought was a particularly good fit. This spring, she pointed out a listing which ended up being the perfect house for us. She was adept at helping us through the process of making an offer and getting to a signed contract. We were only in town for a short time, so she handled the inspections and made sure we were managing all the paperwork, and her recommendations for a mortgage broker and insurance agent were excellent choices. She also found us a terrific property manager. We have found Teresa to be wonderful to work with. She is not only a great broker, but warm and enthusiastic and always made us feel that she would do anything to help (and she did!). We are delighted to serves as a reference for her.”
“Dear Mr. Richter: I am writing to you to make you aware of the outstanding service and support we received from your associate Teresa Baker. My wife and I met Teresa quite by circumstance at an open house on Sanibel Island last October. We owned a second home in Ft. Myers for ten years and had just begun the process of looking for a new home in SW Florida. We really had not idea what we wanted but it's always fun to look. We spent several hours with Teresa that day discussing our wants and needs before we headed back to Indianapolis. From that point, Teresa took control emailing us a wide variety of potential homes for our consideration. We spent several days in the ensuing months looking at dozens of properties. Her organization, planning and patience were incredible. I am happy to report that I am writing to you from my new home office in Quail West. We love our new home and we are very excited about our retirement plans in Naples. We could not have accomplished this without Teresa's help and guidance. I would highly recommend her services to any prospective client and would be happy to serve as a referral for your agency and for Teresa Baker. You are fortunate to have dedicated associates of her caliber working in your agency. It says a lot about your company and the clients it likely attracts. Thank you for making our buying experience enjoyable and productive. ”

“We met Theresa in January of 2010 when we stopped by the sanibel office to inquire about the availability of properties in the area. She was gracious and helpful and through a series of meetings and showings, we were able to develop a real good idea of the type of property we were interested in purchasing. Given the size of the market and the large number of alternatives, Theresa did a great job in focusing us on the locations, price range and units that were most attractive. This included a wide range of alternatives in the Sanibel and SW Ft. Myers area. We never felt that our time was wasted or that there was any pressure from her. She got to anticipate what would be interesting while still showing us a range that helped define our choice. In early March we ended up making some offers and after a short negotiation reached an agreement on a condo. As is often the case, there were a few issues to be resolved but we were anxious to close before we returned to New England. She was instrumental in getting the closing done and assisting us in taking ownership before our departure. Theresa was also most helpful with her knowledge of the area and the vendors and other agents that we needed to make a successful transition. Her advice was constructive and accurate and helped immensely as new residents. We would recommend Theresa and her agency with great confidence and appreciation. She was genuinely interested in a successful transaction and us. We were very fortunate to get to meet her and have her as a friend. ”
