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.

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!!!

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.

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.

August 6, 2015 – My experience with Realty Executives and with Garges in particular has been nothing but first class. I originally came into contact with Garges approximately 5 years ago, with an aspiration of buying a condo in St Pete, I knew the area vaguely but had no idea of the market. Garges was informative and very detailed when explaining the various options available,  I was the proud owner of a gorgeous condo within a few weeks. As the years have passed Garges kept me informed with the housing market and at the start of this year my attention turned to buying another property. My only consideration was to place myself in the safe hands of Realty Executives and return back to Garges, where she worked tirelessly to secure the deal of my dreams.

I met Lambdin Freeman at the recommendation of the people we were renting from in Indian Shores. Lambdin went above and beyond the call of duty as she showed us everything we had told her we were interested in, in the price range we indicated. Not only did Lambdin stick to our needs, she showed us places of interest and fun places to go while here on vacation. Thanks Lambdin…..you became a friend as well as our realtor……we will definitely recommend you to anyone we know who wishes to buy or sell in the area…..

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

I’ve been doing business with ‘The PURTEE Team’ for 2 years. Garges’ approach has been no-nonsense and her follow-through is second to none. We purchased a condo at Redington Shores Yacht & Tennis Club. Garges stepped in and not only completely furnished it for us, but she has kept it rented when we weren’t able to use it ourselves!
