The Purtee Team gets the job done in a professional, self -assured, low key way. We found Garges Purtee who sold our home in record time for full asking price on great terms – they did what 2 other companies could not do or did not put the effort in to do. Thank you so much for your great connections and closing help as well as your marketing skill. If we had not found you we would have given up hope of selling. A dream realized just last week.

Thank you Garges Purtee for helping us find our Clearwater Beach condo! Thanks to Garges’ tenacity, knowledge and connections, we were able to successfully purchase the property thru short sale. During the long process, Garges followed up with the parties involved, making certain that our offer did not “fall thru the cracks”. Garges fights for her clients – she is a tireless worker and a thorough, effective communicator. As soon as we took ownership of our condo, Garges came for a visit and offered guidance and on hands assistance with preparing our unit for rental. Her expertise with decorating and her personal experience with vacation home rental was invaluable. We consider Garges to be, not only our realtor, but also friend. We are extremely grateful.

I first met Lambdin at an open house she was hosting. She so impressed me, I kept her card and told her what we were looking for. She never stopped looking until she found exactly what we wanted. We love our condo, and she and her team have continued to help us even with vacation rentals for our condo, insurance recommendations and more. We are still in the market, and she regularly alerts us to properties she thinks might interest us. I highly recommend her and the entire Purtee team. But,I must confess, we will always have a special place in our heart for Lambdin!!!

August 14, 2015 – It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…. or so the novel goes.  The best is of course owning an incredible condo on the Narrows in Indian Shores in Florida with unencumbered views of the Gulf and the Intercoastal Waterway. It was something we had worked our entire lives to attain.

The worst of times was having to sell the condo due to unforeseen health issues. Although I am a realtor, the emotional situation I found myself in caring for an ill spouse forced me to find another realtor.  The realtor I needed had to represent me as I would represent myself; had to have honor, integrity and know the beach. There was only one choice:  Garges Purtee. Garges and I had never worked together, nor had we ever truly even met. I only knew her by her outstanding reputation and never in all my years on the beach had I ever heard a disparaging word.

True to her commitment to me, she sold the condo in a timely fashion. It is a bittersweet accomplishment for me but a necessary one, for which I am eternally grateful.

Hi there Garges Just wanted to send you a quick note, to thank you so very much, for all your help in finding us the perfect rental-earning vacation home. Like so many people out there looking to find that opportunity that exists in the real-estate market, we started our search on-line, and like so many people say… it’s a huge task! The PURTEE Team ‘Garges and Kathy’ are the BEST!!! WOW, almost a year has gone by…you sending us market analysis/updates/reports and potential property matches for our criteria to review. Your market knowledge certainly was demonstrated whereas you guided us towards better and better choices. Your professionalism and market savvy was truly key to gain our confidence, being that we are 2000 miles away and that 99.9% of our dealings have been email/web based. Your team certainly made the whole process easy and stress-free. Not only were you my guide to realize mine and Claudette’s dream of a Florida Property, you have made us feel like family. You and your team ‘Kathy’ went the extra mile. You became my tour guide of the area, where to eat, shop and have a beverage. You explained the up and coming areas. You also provided invaluable insight on décor. These days, there are so many companies and individuals that have forgotten how to provide excellent support and client service; it was indeed a privilege dealing with you. I will ensure we speak highly of our experience together. We shall always remain friends. Rick and Claudette Goguen

In a tough market, when it is not the best time to be a Seller, we count on Mark and Garges Purtee and the rest of their team to go the extra distance in marketing our home and, most importantly, getting it SOLD!!!

I would like to extend my thanks to Garges Purtee and her Team for an expedited and successfully completed short sale on my investment property. I contacted Garges about my being upside-down on an investment beach condo and she immediately went to work with her team. She put me in touch with her negotiator Diane Dicroce and within days we had showings and open houses. Kathy McBrayer from Team Purtee spent almost every weekend for 3 months in that condo showing it to potential buyers. Since it was a short sale time was of the essence as the bank could have refused an offer from a potential buyer. Diane and Garges worked together to make sure the bank, buyer and an additional lender had all the information they needed to get to closing. Garges even had a back-up buyer in place with “check-in-hand” should buyer #1 get cold feet. 3 months later and many e-mails, faxes and phone calls on my behalf, Garges and Diane were able to secure a bank acceptance of the buyers offer. They were also able to keep the buyer aware that banks move slowly and Garges was able to keep the buyers “in the game” until closing. I feel very blessed to have known Garges and her family for almost 10 years now. I don’t think many realtors could have done this. In fact, I know from experience many realtors could NOT have done this. This would not have happened without the team approach of a negotiator and realtor working together. Thanks Garges, Mark, Kathy and Diane!

Garges Purtee and the PURTEE Team are the best people that I know for all real estate matters in Florida! Their team puts out 110% whether it is to buy or sell real estate. I have had the pleasure of being able to use them for both instances and have been totally ecstatic with their results. With all the time they put in to work for you, they still find the time to talk to you and address your needs. They are truly outstanding!

We came in contact with The PURTEE Team last fall when we were looking for a rental in the area to decide if we wanted to make a purchase. Garges found us a rental at the Redington Shores Yacht & Tennis Club for the month of December. Prior to our visit, she e-mailed back and forth about the market conditions and was very informative about the timing of a purchase. Once we got settled in at our waterfront condo, Mark was available to show us the marketplace and where some of the great opportunities were. We actually did find our “Paradise” gulf front home (and actually named it that!). Then Garges stepped back in and helped us finish out the furnishing and decor. With our busy schedules and hectic pace, this was a tremendous relief to know it was in her capable hands. We highly recommend all of the Purtee team as they are attentive, knowledgeable and rise to the task at hand. PS Had my gal pals over from Pittsburgh and they were in love with the place so hats off to your decorating talents as they looked at everything and commented on all of it. They loved the monkey and elephant lamp nearly as much as I do.
