Lise Johnson

We have worked with Lise since 2000 and purchased a home with Lise’s help in 2004. She lives in the same community and we have stayed in touch. Anytime we have real estate questions we consult with Lise. She also publishes a newsletter that is extremely helpful regarding the local market. When we decided to sell we discussed it with Lise. She provided a detailed analysis of homes that had sold and were on the market, helped us with staging ideas, and developed an outstanding brochure. She also wrote a great ad and staged open houses. Sale was quick, offer was very good and from the offer to closing she provided excellent guidance.

Robert Williams

Bill is the Best!!

Bill is a real estate agent personified! He is a great person to know, especially when you need help he went above and beyond the call of duty. He took the time to understand our personal needs for our family. This eliminated wasted time looking at property he knew we would not like, Both Bill and Nancy let us know that they really care about us and Milo (our dog).

Earl and Julia Hart

Bill is Awesome!!

Bill was amazingly helpful though out the entire purchase process. He went over and above to assist us with arranging everything for the arrival of our boat, recommends local vendors and cruising with us to our dock. Over and above to help us—-Highly recommend Bill!

Amazing Bill

We met Bill through Nancy. What a team! When we had a question or needed an inspection or a problem popped up, a call or text to Bill and it was handled. His response is quick and accurate. He even thought to get us a permit for our pods before we knew to get them. We cannot say enough about this team. Bill went way beyond the norm. We appreciate him and Nancy.

Joni and Fred W

The Best

Just by luck we had Nancy Ritchey as our agent. What a blessing we received! She was so professional, but so caring to our needs. She gave us honest opinions and both she and Bill handled any blip that appeared along the way. We always felt like we were in great hands, especially with us so far away in Arizona. What a pleasure to see a transaction handled with honesty while having fun with her! Not enough good words can be said for both Nancy and Bill. We hope to call them friends one day.

Earl and Julia Hart

she’s so friendly, and caring, we felt as if we were all friends…

Sharon Huck was so helpful when we were down there looking, she’s so friendly, and caring, we felt as if we were all friends. She knows her stuff , that’s always helpful… Unfortunately we didn’t purchase a house that visit, maybe next time ? But we will defiantly use Sharon as our Realtor.

Nancy J

Thank you all for making it a very pleasant experience.

Sharon Huck was very efficient, professional and considerate even though I bought a very inexpensive property. She treated me no differently than if I had bought a half million dollar property. She continues after the sale to be very helpful by arranging for me to acquire furniture from another of clients. Any other agent would have moved on immediately after the sale and forgotten about me the day after closing. Thank you all for making it a very pleasant experience.

Anthony Grizz

She went way beyond her responsibilities to help me.

Sharon Huck was extremely helpful from the beginning. I was only in Florida for a few days and she was very accommodating to my schedule. Prior to my trip there, she gave me quite a bit of information over the phone and by email. Even now, after the purchase, she provided me with details on assisted living for my mother. It was an extreme pleasure to work with Sharon. She went way beyond her responsibilities to help me.

Margaret Whitestone

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Sharon Huck has gone above and beyond with her real estate duties. She has treated us as if we were family. We cannot thank both Five Star Realty and Sharon, we are extremely happy our purchase and new friend, Sharon. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Bruno and Maria Triolo

Sharon Always returned our calls and followed up with every request we made.

Working with Sharon Huck was a real pleasure, she is very professional. Sharon Always returned our calls and followed up with every request we made. We would “HIGHLY” recommend Sharon as a Real Estate Professional to anyone who wants results with their real estate needs.

Albert and Susan Campitelli

Though a small sale, she provided BIG service and we so appreciate that!

We found Sharon to be very conscience, professional and pleasant; we had complete confidence in her handling of our transaction. She was patient and flexible with our changes. Though a small sale, she provided BIG service and we so appreciate that!

Dean and Nancy Carlson

Working with Robin has been a true pleasure.

Working with Robin has been a true pleasure. Both of us have been in the real estate transaction business for over 30 years and know that she exemplifies all of the best qualities in an agent. We would highly recommend her to family and friends without hesitation and most certainly will call her again if we need a real estate professional in the future.

Vernon and Trish Green

We felt in capable hands.

Jeff, Robyn and Larry work well together as a team. With each member contributing his / her expertise in their field and projecting confidence in their ability to preform. We felt in capable hands.

Cathy and Paul

An absolute Blessing!

Nancy was amazing !Phenomenal to work with!!!! She was the forth realtor that we tried and I could not be more happy! She really got to know our family and took the time to look after everything since we were buying from out of state. I loved that she really listened to the things that I was looking for and found us the perfect house for my family. She was with us through the whole process and even after the sale was complete. You will not find a better person to help you with all of your housing needs!

Nate and Emily S.

I would recommend Monica to anyone who wants a really dedicated realtor.

We listed our house with Monica Vallee around the first of the year in 2015. We were VERY PLEASED with her performance regarding the selling of our house. She worked very hard promoting the house, especially since our house was a hard sell since it has a small garage and a spa rather than a pool. She hosted an open house every weekend. Her vivacious personality, wit , and command of the facts convinced clients to take a closer look at our property. I would recommend Monica to anyone who wants a really dedicated realtor. She is the hardest working realtor I have ever been associated with.

Earl Hupka

She even helped find a contractor for us to install new tile and have the condo painted.

Monica Vallee was a wonderful agent to work with when we purchased our condo in Punta Gorda last spring. She even helped find a contractor for us to install new tile and have the condo painted while we were back home in Michigan. Hats off to Monica! We would recommend her highly to friends looking for a place in beautiful Punta Gorda. What we are disappointed about is Five Stars’ property managers, who we contacted recently regarding renting the condo out in the off season. We were told that they couldn’t help us, as those owners who rent out during high season get priority. Apparently spending a few hundred thousand on a condo does not qualify us for any assistance from Five Star.

Diana & Bill Estlack

She is a first class real estate agent

Lise went out of her way to always be available, to explain things thoroughly so there were no unexplained surprises. She is a first class real estate agent and we will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs an agent. She hs a wonderful personality and sense of humor. We greatly enjoyed working with her and cannot express adequately how highly we think of her.

Shirley Lytle

She gained my trust and respect and I can recommend her without reservation.

Five Star Realty provided excellent professional care of my rental unit for many years with Libbie and Chelsea always available to respond when needed. When the question of selling this property came up Judy Korenstra became that agent. Again a 5 star professional to guide and help me with this challenge. She was unfailingly professional, pleasant and patient throughout and provided honest and fair information. She gained my trust and respect and I can recommend her without reservation.

Louis Wass

the process was as painless as it could’ve ever been

Judy helped us locate a home to buy in Punta Gorda and the process was as painless as it could’ve ever been. Since both of us were realtors in another state, we were knowledgeable about all aspects of buying and selling so the attentiveness, communication and skills that Judy exhibited were nothing less than “right on.” She is familiar with the market and knows an extensive, geographical area which made it easy for her to answer all of our questions with knowledge and honesty. We recommend her services to both buyers and sellers. Thank you Judy!

Christine and Drew Kenney

Great realtor with a fabulous attitude!!!

I really enjoyed working with Gail Cleaver. She is the sweetest and kindest person! We looked last season for a place but nothing seemed right. Gail never gave up on us. We finally bought this past July and we couldn’t be happier. I would definitely recommend Gail to anyone looking to buy or sell! Great realtor with a fabulous attitude!!!

Nancy Schmidt

She supported me during times of frustration and disappointment.

Daniella was tireless in finding the perfect home for me! She continually sent listings for me to look over online; when I narrowed down the list she took me out to look at the homes. I can’t say I was the easiest to please since she sent me over 50 homes to look at on line and we visited at least 20 homes. This was my first home purchase and she guided me and assisted me in the process. She supported me during times of frustration and disappointment. Anyone who is looking to buy or list a home can be VERY SURE that Daniella Boccio will go beyond your expectations.

Ginger Thorne

The glossy color brochure he created for us was incredible.

Working with Dan Bussey was the best experience we have had with a realtor selling our home, and we’ve sold a few. Not only was he professional, but proactive in keeping us alert to the market. We felt like we were in capable hands from the day we listed, and we were, as our house sold within a short period of time. The glossy color brochure he created for us was incredible and when we looked at it, wondered why we were selling this beautiful home. If Dan leaves real estate he could become a photographer!

Susan Hupp

The photography he took for the glossy brochure he produced was like none we had ever seen.

Choosing Dan to sell our house was the best decision we could have made in choosing a Realtor to represent us in selling our home. He is knowledgeable, professional, quick to follow up and a pleasure to deal with. The photography he took for the glossy brochure he produced was like none we had ever seen and made us wonder why we were selling!

Susan and Tom Hupp

Chan is Wonderful!

I will never use a different Realtor. Chan is wonderful! Show goes above and beyond what any other Realtor has ever done for us!

Judy Nicley

Very confident in her professional abilities

We recently had the pleasant experience working with Arlene Epling as our Realtor for a purchase for a new home. Our elderly parents were looking to relocate to the area and she was highly efficient working with them as buyers for a new home. She was professional in handling all of the details of the home purchase as if they were her own parents. They were happy working with her and quite pleases with the home they ultimately purchased in a difficult market. She is knowledgeable of the current market and handled all of the negotiations and paperwork expertly. We can recommend Arlene as an excellent agent to handle the sale or purchase of a property who is easy to work with and quite capable with all of the details. You will be very comfortable working with her and can be very confident in her professional abilities.

Michael and Tracy Valva, for Ken and JoAnne Marler, buyers

We do not worry that a problem may arise, we know that we are in the best of hands.

I would like to share my experience with you regarding the Five Star Management Team of Linda, Libbie and Chelsea. They have taken extreme care of our rental property in Punta Gorda. They value our condominium rental as though it was their own property. All calls whether from a tenant or myself are handled with urgency and resolve. As we sit here in new England we do not worry that a problem may arise, we know that we are in the best of hands. They have served us for the past six years and we plan to continue our rental relationship in the future.

Linda Faucher

Linda is the Best!

I have used Five Star Realty Property Management since 2002 and I have consistently received good results. During these years the market has had ups and downs but Linda Wilkinson has been able to place solid, reliable tenants in all market conditions and in a timely manner. I have four properties in the area and I’ve been in the rental business for over 39 years. Linda is the best!

Robert Dorman

Libbie and her team always went above and beyond to ensure that our condo was rented and maintained.

We have been clients of 5 Star Rental for over 10 years. The service and dedication of the staff was exemplary. Libbie and her team always went above and beyond to ensure that our condo was rented and maintained. Their screening process also kept our property safe from damage because they always found renters who were respectful of our home. If any issues arose, 5 Star handled them immediately and professionally. We always knew our condo was in good hands.

Karen and Colin Woodfall

I just can’t say enough good things about 5 Star and Libbie.

We have been using the rental agents at 5 Star since 2000. They are extremely professional, hard-working and very attentive. Libbie Scherer in particular has gone above and beyond in renting our condo unit and maintaining it. We had a few emergencies over the years and Libbie really stepped forward to take charge and resolve issues for us. Even though we live 1500 miles from our condo, we never had to travel to our condo to handle any problems – Libbie and 5 Star took care of everything. We always felt our property was rented to responsible individuals who treated it respectfully so we didn’t have to worry about our condo when we weren’t there and the condo was always spotless after the 5 Star crew cleaned it for us. I just can’t say enough good things about 5 Star and Libbie.

Colin and Karen Woodfall

Renting from a distance, we relied on Libbie and Chelsea to handle everything.

Renting from a distance, we relied on Libbie and Chelsea to handle everything. And they did. From adding to kitchen supplies, dealing with Comcast (ugh), making repairs, they handled everything flawlessly. And then the place looks unused at the end of the rental period.

I have always felt in good hands with Five Star Rental Dept.

I have always felt in good hands with Five Star Rental Dept. and have used them for many years. Linda and Libbie have always found the perfect tenant for my rental home. I have always been pleased with the management service. Thank you Five Star for always giving us peace of mind.

Rick Kilmer

Thank you for always being there when the many things inevitably went awry.

Thank you for the great job you provided in managing my property on West Retta Esplanade. Thank you for always being there when the many things inevitably went awry. I knew I could always count on you — for that I am very thankful. Your professionalism was evident throughout. If you ever need me to provide a recommendation for you, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you again! Best to you and your company. Kind regards, Eric Jensen
