"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Greg. He joined our house search mid-stream following a less-than-ideal experience with another agent. Greg picked up the pieces, and became our most trusted advisor in our home search. He made honest recommendations, listened to what we wanted, was always available to us for questions and viewings (often the same day!), and (even after a couple fell through) helped to negotiate a deal that allowed us to buy the SOUTH TAMPA HOUSE OF OUR DREAMS!!! Greg's professionalism, patience, and kindness made the entire experience so much less stressful and helped us to close on our home in 30 days. Definitely a 5-Star Agent and property group."
"My sister and I were selling our family home and I was purchasing a new one. Our family home was in an historical district, and Greg was very familiar with the laws that pertain to historical society's rules and regulations, which gave us peace of mind. In a week's time he was able to sell our house at full asking price. He also found the perfect new home for me , well in advance of the timeframe. Greg was a pleasure to work with, exceeded our expectations and I highly recommend him."
"We interviewed many agents and couldn't decide. We added Greg at the last minute and we were blown away. His professionalism and knowledge were gold. His connections and client base are extensive. He listened and came up with the perfect plan and executed it exactly as promised. He is an incredible negotiator, knowing when to push and when not too. He is a caring advisor, helping us decide what we needed to do. Without him, I truly believe that our experience selling our house would have been a disaster. I can not thank him enough."
"We moved down to Tampa from 18yrs of life in Manhattan, and trying to find a home in such a different city could have been a harried experience. We got VERY lucky and met Greg.
As a type A individual relocating from Manhattan, I was initially unsure of Greg's calm, almost passive, demeanor. He did not push us to buy a property, and allowed us to "look around". I know now that this was because he knew, from his years of experience in the field, that we were not ready to commit and buy a home. He got us a condo to rent, about 6 months later, reached out to us. We were familiar with the city and the neighborhoods and was ready to buy by then.
I think I manifested even more of the type A personality and the aggressiveness, and emailed him an extremely detailed, lengthy email of my "musts, wants, would-like's but not necessarys" of the home. To my surprise, Greg is very much a type A individual when it pertains to getting the home of your desire. I received an email back of what is possible, what options existed, and what other aspects to consider that I might have overlooked. We met to look at 6 different homes, and each of the 6 homes had what I wanted. When we walked into the last house, we knew that this was exactly what we had been looking for.
We made one date to see homes with Greg and was able to find our home. The entire process was without a glitch, and without any wasted time wandering around to see homes that did not meet our requirement.
Most importantly, you can trust Greg to do what's right and what's in your best interest. He is deeply rooted in the Tampa real estate market, and wishes to help you buy your home, and continue the great relationship so that he can help sell your home.
With such outlook, he has helped connect us to the best people (and economical!) we needed to remodel our floors, cabinets, walls, etc.
If you are a serious buyer, even if it's not in the immediate future, Greg is an invaluable agent. You will not find anyone better in the greater Tampa area."
"My first career was as a housing contractor and I can tell you that the most important trait for any real-estate agent is integrity. Greg is an honest guy who will spell things out for you and do what is right for your goals and budget. When we began this process my wife emailed Greg a list of priorities and questions, Greg's detailed line-by-line response sold her on him as a businessman; I was convinced by talking to people who had worked with him before.
He took us to a number of houses that fit our criteria and financing, none were a waste of time, our favorite was one that his group held the listing for, which is a potentially difficult situation. Greg's clear communication between both parties, his ability to articulate both the buyer's and sellers positions helped everyone involved understand the deal and in the end we were all very happy.
Prior to closing I had the house independently inspected and had a real estate investor look at the home and all Greg had told me, including the faults, were true.
When you work with Greg you also get the advantage of his contacts. Greg has been in Tampa for a long time and has worked with many different people. For any issue with real estate that you need help with, Greg will give you advice on who to use, and accurately describe them. His referrals have never failed me and all the people he has directed me to have treated me fairly. This has been invaluable as we moved from out of state and know few people in Tampa.
Finally, when a family member began looking for a house and needed an agent, but whose budget was roughly 10% what mine was, Greg took care of him as well as he took care of me. Greg understands how important reputation is and that clients are people who need help. He's a good guy and you will be happy you chose Greg."
After the devastating attack on our country on 9/11, Greg decided that he needed a change from the fast-paced intense lifestyle on Wall Street and decided to move to Tampa to be closer to his family and to pursue a career in real estate. Applying the skills he had in running successful businesses and his Wall Street work ethic Greg quickly became successful in the Tampa Bay real estate market and one of the top Realtors® in the Tampa Bay area. Some of his accomplishments include selling out several condo conversions and several new construction projects totaling hundreds of units. He has also listed and sold property from Lakeland to Tampa and from Pasco to the beaches in St. Petersburg. Greg is currently a Broker/Associate, an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS), a Member of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing (ILHM), and since his first year in real estate he has been ranked among the top 1% of Realtors® nationally.
In his free time, Greg enjoys sailing, fishing, and an occasional bad round of golf, and is a self-proclaimed car addict! Whether you are looking to buy or sell, Greg is ready to go to work for you!
