What Clients Are Saying

JoAnn Martin from Preferred Real Estate of FL. & MA. we want to thank you for the speedy sale of our house, and the huge effort you put into making this possible. Thanks for your quick response when ever we needed to call you

Greg and Sue Kulik

I can absolutely recommend Preferred Real Estate of Fl & MA.  JoAnn Martin was our realtor for the sale of a home in Beverly Hills.  Her communications skills are excellent.   We always felt like we were in the loop and that she was on top of things.  Once there was a buyer, she walked us through the process and we had a very easy closing.  Thank you JoAnn!

Joann sold my home very quickly. She was very easy to reach by phone and did a wonderful job selling my house. She helped me in numerous ways when I had questions regarding my sale and giving feedback on all my showings.

I am writing in regards to the sale of our parents home in Florida. JoAnn Martin & Richard Silva was so helpful in getting the sale done in a timely fashion. Not only were they pleasant to deal with, they even met up with us in our home here in Massachusetts, which was mind blowing.  They certainly went the extra mile to make sure that Mom & Dad were at ease with everything and even made sure that the language barrier was not an issue when it came to the showing and inspections. We are very satisified with everything they have done for us, and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Sincerely, Mario Marques

Joann is a gem. She is very knowledgeable and understands both the area and the market trends. She guided me through the whole process of selling and helped me make good decisions that would make the house more marketable without being pushy or condescending. She worked hard for me and was alwaysavailable when I needed her. The house sold within the first week of being listed. I highly recommend her!

Joanne and Richard went above and beyond to be available to show us homes, and did a fantastic job of marketing our home in Terra Vista. Honest, trustworthy, helpful. If you need an agent, we highly recommend them!!!!

JoAnn & Tony Delena

JoAnn Martin is a wonderful real estate agent.  Not just because she helped us find a buyer for our house in the first week it was listed, although that is pretty hard to top.  She is a wonderful agent because she is through, dedicated and has the ability to make you feel that you are her only client. No detail was too small for her to notice. And if we had any questions, she go the answers for us right away. Her estimate of our costs and resulting profits were spot on. We had no surprises at the closing.  We recommend JoAnn very highly. Easy to work with, knowledgeable about the market in Citrus County FL and thoroughly professional in all aspects. She was always prepared and helped us through the unsettling experience of selling a home.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks for all the work you did in selling my home on Rose Bay Path, Beverly hills.  You always kept me informed to what was going on - the good as well as the not so good.  You did this all in a friendly yet professional manner.  I would highly recommend you and you can certainly use my name for reference any time. Good luck to you in the future.

Sincerely yours, Shirley Lefevre
It was a pleasure working with JoAnn on the sale of my property. She was very thorough, kept me apprised of the status of my sale, was very knowledgeable about local resources for title search, etc. She answered any questions that arose promptly and completely.  I would highly recommend her. 

Joann and Richard are very easy to talk to and respond completely immediately to any of our needs. Communication is so important and they excell in their efforts. Her and Richard have gone above and beyond to sell our home and made it a wonderful experience. My husband and I feel as though we have also found new friends in them.

We would like to recommend realtors JoAnn Martin and Richard Silva of Preferred Real Estate of FL and MA.  They helped us sell our home at 248 E Joplin Ct, Hernando, FL.  They had excellent knowledge of the real estate market in the Citrus Hills area and made many good suggestions on how to better sell the home.  They are one of the few realtors who have open houses.  They advertised the home not only in Citrus County but also in the Boston, MA area.  This can have people up north know about the home.  This is an advantage to being licensed in both FL and MA.  They helped do somethings around the home to help make it salable.  They were very easy to work with and went out of way to help sell the home.  We highly recommend them to anyone wanting to sell a home in Citrus County.

Hilda Eckard and Robert Raybold

JoAnn, we wanted to take time to tell you how much Jerry and I appreciate the hard work you accomplished with the sale of his home in Beverly Hills FL. The extra mile you went with us being out of town at the time the contract was received....the multiple offers we received and the on going offers and counter offers. Thru it all you were patient and understanding. It was remarkable. I spent my career in the field of real estate. First as a realtor for 21 years and than 13 years as a certified residential real estate appraiser.  I have had interaction with hundreds of realtors in that length of time and I can say you rank as one of the best. It is very difficult for a realtor to get this high of a compliment from me.

Thank you so very much Sharon Turner

My angel had me pause at my mailbox to speak to a lady who was driving by.  She wanted to know if anyone in the neighborhood was interested in selling their home.  She asked if she might take a look at mine, when I mentioned that it has three bedrooms. She gave me her card, and mentioned that she was a realtor with Preferred Real Estate of FL. & MA, which has offices in Florida and Massachusetts. This was JoAnn Martin. We both have roots in Massachusetts and became friends.  She is professional, outgoing and a great photographer.
They say the third time never fails, so after showing the house to three buyers, the third couple loved the house. I hope they will be happy here and love the house as much as I do, but it is time for me to downsize.

Elvira Kennedy

It is difficult selling your parent's home, but the realization had come that we could not take care of the house the way it needed to be taken care of.  We contacted JoAnn Martin of Preferred Real Estate of FL. & MA. to help with the sale of the Beverly Hills FL home. She was very professional in dealing with us and the potential buyer. All along the way she was always asking if we were doing alright. She realized that this was a hard decision to make.  I would recommend her agency to anyone who asked who listed and sold our house. 

Carl & Gail Ross

JoAnn assisted with every aspect using her knowledge to complete each task thoroughly appointed to her. A excellent realtor who is patient, kind, adds fun to her work, and listens. A+A+A+A++++++
