Eve and Felix Sawicki listed our home for sale. It was on the MLS for only 10 days and they presented us with a contract for the full purchase price. We were downsizing and they were able to find us a home in our same neighborhood that we purchased. The home was also their listing. We would not have been able to make this move without their caring counseling and understanding. We highly recommend these two professional and knowledgeable realtors.

It had been 12 years since we purchased a home and felt overwhelmed by the process until we met Eve and Felix. They are quite an impressive team. Their local market knowledge, expertise in contract management, patience in listening to our objectives and extensive research to help us find our new home was sincerely appreciated. Notably, both Eve and Felix were always available for guidance when we called, emailed or texted ideas and questions. We were delighted to work with them and will happily recommend them to our friends for future needs.

In buying our first home, Eve and Felix walked through the process with us every step of the way. They went above and beyond our expectations of a real estate agent, showing us many homes, contacting service people, and setting up appointments when we were unable to be available due to living in a different city at the time. I can honestly say we would not have the home we purchased were it not for the tenacity and persistence of Eve and Felix. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking for an agent in the St. Petersburg area.
