★★★★★
"We were engaged professionally from start to finish. All of our questions were answered in a timely manner. With three representatives assisting, someone was always available when needed. Will be recommended the Florida Home Girls to anyone in need of realty services." - Al I.

★★★★★
"We enjoyed working with the Florida Girls, and would strongly recommend them. They helped us establish pricing, set up the house for showing, and had one open house. They quickly found a buyer, and we met with the buyer to answer any questions they had. We were happy with the sale price too." - Dick & Jean E.

★★★★★
"This is to comment on the excellent service provided by the Florida Home Girls (FHG) in the listing and sale of our home. From the outset the communication with us was outstanding. Little wonder that a fair price offer was secured within four days and we closed within a month. The Florida Home Girls are hardworking professionals with a proven track record in the fields of real estate, marketing and communication. They are the best at both listing properties and representing buyers. We are happy to recommend them to all who need real estate professionals." - Ramona & Guy Alba

★★★★★
"My husband and I recently relocated to Florida from Michigan and Jen was our real estate agent. We ended up purchasing a property in foreclosure which can be a tricky transaction. Jen handled every detail in a very timely manner and everything went very smoothly. She always communicated with us throughout the process and always responded immediately with any questions we had. Being from Michigan she was also very helpful in getting the information we needed to get settled in Florida. We love our new home and would highly recommend Jen for your real estate needs. 5 stars all the way!" - David & Kristy C.

★★★★★
"The Florida Home Girls worked as a team and were very patient with us as a buyer. They were able to accommodate our needs and showed us numerous homes over a 7 month period. From start to finish the team was very attentive, provided feedback, and listened to us. We were grateful for having such great help and guidance as we transitioned to a new state and finding our dream house in Florida. Thank you Compass and Florida Home Girls for the great experience." - Matthew N.

★★★★★
"Jen was an absolute delight to work with. I had to sell my father's house who was moved to a facility. We had 5 offers at or above asking price and was under contract in 2 1/2 days. She was in constant contact with me as we sorted thru that process. She was very helpful in providing options for cleaning out the house as we were having a 30 day closing. She even went out of her way to find a new owner for my father's elderly cat. Jen will do whatever is necessary to get your house sold and be with you every step of the way. She is a true professional, I highly recommend her and will definitely use her in the future." - Donna D.

★★★★★
"The Florida Home Girls is a true team of spirited, knowledgeable and ethical real estate agents that will work hard for you and your family to ensure you purchase and/or sell the home of your dreams. This team exudes professionalism from the beginning through the close of your home." - Theresa H.

★★★★★
"Deb Judge was our Real Estate agent for our recent home purchase. We were out of state and she handled everything for us and gave recommendations on inspectors, lawyers and other professionals. She is EXTREMELY responsive and knowledgeable on the area. She went to the homes and showed them to us via ZOOM. We purchased our home without ever seeing it in person. We highly recommend Deb for any Real Estate needs." -Karen

★★★★★
"Prior to our annual vacation on Longboat Key each July, we decided it was time to investigate boating communities in the area. Our first task was to identify a realtor who we felt comfortable with. We use Compass in our home location and started with the Compass team in FL. We reviewed realtors & teams for several days and ultimately landed with the Florida Home Girls. Why, a combination of bio’s, experience, and tenure in the area. Our introduction call was effortless, comfortable and instilled confidence. Our first day, in person looking at houses was an opportunity for us to really get to know each other. One thing that stuck out, they listened to everything we said. They began learning our wants and desires along with needs on day one. We were shown everything from condos to homes, old to new, HOA to Non-HOA all over the area. What we initially thought we wanted was not where we ended up. Our desires changed along the way and they were there, with us, side by side evolving with us. Considerable time was spent looking at homes but soon our time in LBK came to an end. Once we returned home, the level of service didn’t change at all. In fact, we may have communicated with the team more. This is where the team approach shined, the Florida Home Girls could stand in for one another and the service we received was seamless. They would visit homes to see if they thought it was a fit (remember they really got to know us), if so would set up a time to do video walkthrough or make incredible video tours. Shout out to the team for the best video tours I’ve ever seen. They were with us through multiple offers and ultimately selecting our dream home in the Inlets @ Riverdale. The experience of using the Florida Home Girls was priceless. We continue to communicate with the team post sale and the contacts in the area are priceless. Strange as it sounds, they will be our first set of local friends. HUGE shout out to the Florida Home girls, specifically Jen and Brooke! Thank you!-"-Bill and Stephanie R.


★★★★★
"Of all the homes we've owned and sold, Florida Home Girls gave us the best support as our selling agents. They always went above and beyond to find the perfect buyers for us and that they did. They treated us like we were family. Their honesty, dedication and integrity makes them very special as our selling agents. We thank you Florida Home Girls from the bottom of our hearts." - Nora Jean and Mark B.

"Jen went above and beyond to help us from start to finish." - Brett B.

About Jennifer

A driving force in the real estate industry for nearly two decades, Jennifer Horvat has built an impressive career around relationship marketing, operations management, and leadership. Her most recent position before transitioning into real estate sales was as Chief Marketing Officer for Michael Saunders and Company, where she was behind the award-winning marketing strategies of the region’s most distinguished luxury properties and consulted over 700 agents on innovative communications. She is now passing along these valuable insights to her buyers and sellers, as well as providing a full-service concierge experience to homeowners. Those who know Jennifer cite her balance of marketing and organization as an incredible gift, one which she gives freely with a smile. 

Jennifer has always had a passion for all things “home” related, beginning her studies at Michigan State University in Interior Design, and later transitioning into Merchandising and Strategic Management at Davenport University. In 2003, Jennifer entered the real estate industry as Director of Marketing for Quicken Loans and saw first-hand how quickly expectations and dreams of homeownership can change with the real estate market crash of 2008. The eternal optimist and strategist, Jennifer’s quick and empathic strategies helped her navigate through that unprecedented time and reinforced her belief that being prepared, nimble, and positive are the best business practices to adopt.

Jennifer and her family moved to the Sarasota area in 2011 specifically to support their obsession with golf and take advantage of the many championship courses. Since arriving to the area, she has fully immersed herself in not just the Gulf Coast lifestyle, but also the local organizations that allow our communities to prosper. She is the immediate past-President of the Lakewood Ranch Community Activities Board of Directors, was a member of Realize Bradenton, Visit Sarasota, and the Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance during her tenure as CMO, and remains active with the Sarasota and Manatee Chambers of Commerce. She, her husband Stitch, and her mother Pam live in Parrish’s River Wilderness with their two dogs, Brodie and Ryder.
