"I have known Evie Fortney for 10 years now and she has helped me to purchase 7 properties over the years. Her knowledge and professionalism far surpass any realtor I have ever dealt with in my 65 years on this earth. Through her contacts, she was able to help me obtain mortgage and insurances at great rates and seamless closings. Her attention to detail and efficiency were terrific. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a Realtor. TOP OF THE CLASS!!!!!!!!!!" -Robert

"There's a reason Evie's email address is "leaveit2ev@aol.com" -- because it's true. After our beautiful condo on the inter-coastal in Fort Lauderdale went "stale and sale-less" while being on the market for several months with another broker, we were told by friends to "immediately contact Evie Fortney." So we did. And just about one week later we had an all cash buyer and closed in less than 21 days.

Evie takes the stress out of selling and puts the fun and joy into it. We were out-of-town sellers and Evie made it easy and seamless, handling every last detail without a hitch. Even down to coordinating all of our furniture to be sold on commission. From the photographs Evie and her crew took, to her doggedness to sell, Evie is a true real estate professional whom we'd highly recommend with any real estate venture.

"We wanted to buy a holiday home in Southern Florida, and found one through internet research whilst back home in the UK. Evie Fortney was our first choice Realtor to represent us, having met her on previous holidays. Evie was immediately out of the blocks and driving over to Bonita Springs on our behalf, viewing the home and its location for us, meeting the owners and their realtor, video streaming her walk through to us in real time, checking out the local area, visiting the beaches and local shops etc. Evie helped us agree on a price to offer based on her assessment, one we were very happy with, Evie drafted our "Turnkey" offer, which was accepted for the first time!

On the basis of Evie's recommendation we immediately booked flights to come out and view for ourselves, the next weekend. Evie had pitched it perfectly, it was exactly as described and we were delighted with all the decisions we had made through Evie’s guidance. Back home in the UK, Evie then took over again for us, organizing inspections, agreeing any repairs, drafting contracts, which we signed remotely and electronically. Managing the whole process for us from end to end. We flew back out for a holiday the day after we closed, and moved straight in, and again everything was beyond our expectations, Evie had built a super relationship with the sellers and their realtor, which translated into everything in the home being perfect, with stocks and supplies being left for us to move in, all the services left connected for a week after closing.

Evie Fortney was fantastic, fast paced, high energy, made it all happen for us, gained the trust of the sellers and their realtor on our behalf, and gave us fantastic peace of mind throughout, easiest house purchase we have ever made!

"I wanted to sell my house and purchase a new one, but I was hesitant- I didn’t know where to start. Evie Fortney encouraged me not to procrastinate. I told her I wanted to look at houses on the water in a very limited geographical area. I had a budget in mind. Evie found me a house with an exceptional view on an extra wide span of the New River. It was breath taking. But it needed renovation! I wanted to spend a lot more, and buy a house that was already updated. Evie encouraged me to purchase the house for well under my budget and renovate it to suit my individual style. We made an offer.

In the days that followed, I was so impressed. Evie is so interconnected! She has strong relationships with so many trustworthy industry professionals. She arranged inspections- electrical, structural, roof, even the seawall. She smoothly negotiated repairs with the seller, and arranged for work to be done. I was excited! Then we listed my house. Evie recommended a listing price higher than I imagined. She showed the house 6 (or was it times in two days, and on the third day presented me with an offer over my asking price! She even arranged sales of a lot of my furniture. She recommended a wonderful insurance agent, mortgage broker, the title company, even the movers. She made everything EFFORTLESS! She also proved to have my interests in the forefront. She would have gained a considerably greater commission, had she sold me a more expensive house that was already renovated. She cared about what was best for me. She is exceptional! I would recommend her to anyone. She helped my son purchase and sell a property, and an employee find a home. I am so grateful, and everyday I wake up and say, “Thank you, I love my house so much!”

"A date that will remain important and relevant to my career... It was the day I attended a closing on behalf of and with my client and now good friend, as his Realtor. It was really great day for me because it was not just a typical closing. I had spent several days’ prior, showing property to this client and we just couldn't find the right spot. We eventually knew it was going to be East Fort Lauderdale and ultimately decided that a Condo was the right fit... So making my appointments and up comes Jackson Towers... Well, I have sold in several buildings in my time but this building never hit the radar.

I had to admit to my client that I was not too familiar with the building but we should check it out. What made it more challenging is that on the first showing, I was unable to attend, so my business partner accompanied. That showing was a game changer because of Evie and Jolanta... They didn't get caught up in flexing their high end, luxury condo muscles (Yes there are several agents that do) and instead took the time and sincere effort to not only show their listing, but spend a considerable amount of time to educate my client and partner the features and value of the location and building. I recall getting a call from my partner and client afterwards expressing how impressed they were with not only the property, but how incredibly patient and informative the listing agents were. Needless to say the search was over. Evie and Jolanta were amazing in not only representing their Seller but also providing equal time and attention to my client and me throughout the process. On that day of closing, we all had a rare celebration with both Buyer and Seller together, at Grille 401. Evie and Jolanta are as good as it gets and I continue to follow their success and seek their guidance if and when I need them. I encourage anyone, if they don’t hire me to represent them, to consider this dynamic duo. They simply represent our industry at the highest level, in every way a client should expect!

"Jolanta and Evie have a very strong command of the real estate market in the Ft Lauderdale area. They present an excellent marketing platform that showcases the benefits of working with them from start to finish.

I have worked with many realtors and have purchased and sold numerous properties over the years. I have the highest respect for Jolanta and Evie and can attest that they are true professionals when it comes to their real estate duties and clients. I would highly recommend clients to them.
" -Mark W.

"Evie and Jolanta are first class realtors all the way. They work 24/7 and ensure a smooth transaction. They are full service realtors who patiently walk you through every step of the process. Jolanta sold my unit years ago and I was happy to reconnect during our recent purchase. Will continue to work with Evie and Jolanta in the future!" -Elliot
