Tell Us Your Story

Kathleen did an excellent job helping us select our new condo.

We had a short period of time in the area to preview condos. When we arrived, she had selected a good variety of properties based on our needs. Because of her professionalism and efficiency, we were able to quickly decide on a property that met our needs. Kathleen and her team did an excellent job in all phases of the purchase and closing process. We would highly recommend Kathleen for anyone looking to buy property in the area.

Kathy & Bruce Polon

We found Kathleen to be very professional, knew the products she was showing, immediately obtained any additional information needed and best of all was pleasant, patient and caring.

Leonard Rosenkrantz

I have worked with Kathleen since January 2017, searching for a second home in Florida.

What a wonderful experience I had working with her! She took all the stress out of finding the perfect house to meet the needs of my family. She was with me every step of the way from looking at listings, finding the right house and assisting me in the final offer to purchase the home. During the closing process she provided me with all the important contacts and help me and my providers stay on top of so many important and, at time, urgent details. We actually closed at the end of April which was two weeks early. Kathleen has a wonderful work ethic and communication style. She has been a tremendous resource to me and provided me with a lot of information to help me settled into my new home. I would recommend Kathleen to help you find the perfect home in the Sarasota area. She was great!

Kathleen is one in a million!

We had been in search of a 2nd home/vacation property in the Sarasota area for over 5 years. We stumbled onto Kathleen through an on-line inquiry, and are so grateful we did. She is not only professional and proficient in her job but such a pleasant person to spend time with. Her knowledge of the Real Estate market is tremendous and it was obvious to us from the start, responding within minutes to an inquiry on a Sunday evening, that she would do what it took to find us our vacation home. We traveled from a distance as many do while searching for P/T residence, viewing several properties, she made that process quick, effective and enjoyable. I don't know how she does it with her work load but Kathleen has a special way about her that makes you feel as though you are her top priority -- she is a rare find!! JULIE & PAUL G.

We met with Kathleen who, in a very short period of time, gave us a comprehensive understanding of the area, the various types of properties available and an honest assessment of the pluses and minuses of each.

Personable, knowledgeable and professional. We fully intend to stick with her as we pursue a purchase in the area.

Kathleen was the first to respond & , based on her biography, I knew she would be more than just a tour guide for me. I was right. She was very professional, detail orientated, reliable, trustworthy & her follow up was outstanding.

Joe & Kathy Rossi

When my husband and I were searching for our future home in Florida, we selected Kathleen from among the rest of the real estate agents we saw on line.

  She stood out from the rest due to her responsiveness and professionalism.  Kathleen Comerford helped us identify what we wanted in our future home.  Kathleen was professional in all aspects. She listened to our needs, asked questions of the sellers in a manner to protect our interests and to ensure we had answers to things that we did not think about at that time.  She was very attentive to our needs.  Our visit was terrific and we bought a home due to Kathleen's ability to help find us the perfect home. Since that visit, we have had questions about all different things regarding assistance with relocation, places to live if our home sells before the new home is built, assistance with locating a realtor in the east for the sale of our home, etc.  Kathleen continued to assist us with our questions regarding our purchase and our relocation to Florida. We have forwarded Kathleen's name on to people we know in New England who are also looking for property in Florida.  And, we are not ones to refer people unless we believe 100% that this person can do the best job for them!!  Kathleen is an absolute professional in this field and goes above and beyond for excellent service.  We stongly recommend her if you are looking to buy a home, selling your home or, as in our case, are also relocating.

“Kathleen's knowledge and effort is so unexpected!

We consider ourselves fortunate to have worked with her.

Joyce Sobczyk

Hello.

My name is Shea R. Wolf. I am a local college student and I reached out to Kathleen for help on a conceptual construction project that I was working on for my Construction Documents class at Everglades University in Sarasota where I am working to obtain my BS with a major in Construction Management. I needed information on a piece of property and could not seem to find what I needed. After Googling for way longer than I thought it should take, I came upon a site that directed me toward Kathleen. After I explained to her who I was and what I needed she said that she could help. And what a help she was. she provided all the information I needed to finish my project. Thanks, in large part, to her efforts I received an "A". She was extremely helpful and highly knowledgeable and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase property in this area.

Shea R. Wolf

Kathleen went out of her way to please us and spent quite a long time with us.

  I will call her if we finally decide to sell our house and move.  Loved working with her!

Kathy Giorgini

Kathleen was a big help to me in investigating real estate possibilities in Sarasota.

She was responsive and helpful even when she knew I probably would not be purchasing in the near future. She treated me as if I was her most important client. So, if I do decide to purchase in Sarasota she will be my only Realtor. A current Jacksonville resident.

Linda Cannaley

Dear Kathleen It was wonderful to finally meet you .

. You are a very pleasant and agreeable fountain of knowledge. Hope we didn't tire you out. We haven't come to any decisions yet. We're still thinking & trying to decide. We'll get back to you when things are more concrete Best wishes Helma & Warren

Warren & Helma Clift

Kathleen and team are professionals.

Their staging was instrumental in a quick and favorable sale. I highly recommend their services

Sal Cimilluca

Kathleen is an exceptional realtor.

After listing our property without success for over a year with another agent, Kathleen used her great knowledge, resources and effort to find a buyer at the price we wanted. She was able to help resolve a problem with the title on our inherited property through her network of professionals in the area and she attended to every detail so that there were no surprises at closing. I have bought and sold several properties and have never dealt with a more professional or effective agent. I would highly recommend Kathleen for anyone's real estate needs.

Don

We can honestly say that Kathleen is the best realtor we've ever had.

Her attention to detail, response and follow-up to our questions, honesty, and 110% effort resulted in the condo of our dreams.

I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing the purchase of 2 homes about 5 years apart with the help of Kathleen.

She is professional, honest, creative and very knowledgeable about all the steps involved. If issues arise, she has incredible experience for resolutions. I highly recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell. Brittany is a superb assistant throughout the whole process, too. I’m using her when we sell next, too!

Tina Snider

We feel fortunate to have had Kathleen Comerford as our Realtor when we decided to move from Delaware to Florida.

We found her very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. She was always calm and patient with us as our house-hunting got under way. We valued her advice and expertise. She also has a great sense for style which we found very helpful. With Kathleen's guidance we found a lovely home in a great community. We would recommend her to our friends and use her again if it ever became necessary.

LuAnn and Tom Becker

Kathleen is like a best friend happy that you have moved here and will do what shecan to make this major transition very easy.

I don't know how she can organize her time so well but she is always very responsive to any questions you have. She is also an extremely hard worker, doing everything she can to help you buy a new home or sell your current home. I would not hesitate to use her services again. She really knows the business.

Beverly Ruis

OMG!

!! I've dealt with realtors in the past but none quite so generous with her time, resources and patience as Kathleen. Hard for me to believe but I'll actually miss seeing and conferring regularly with her.

Maryanne Finkelstein

The first time I used Kathleen Comerford was 4 years ago when I moved to North Venice.

Unlike other realtors, I found that she listened to my needs, did not waste my time showing me properties I had no interest in and most of all her knowledge of the area both price-wise and style-wise was excellent. We found just what I was looking for and it was within the budget I had given her, Naturally, when I was ready to sell I went right back to Kathleen and again she did not disappoint. I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Sarasota

Leonard Rosenkrantz

I had to find a new home and move quickly.

Kathleen was absolutely wonderful! She understood just what I needed and wanted and provided a selection that fit me perfectly. We found the right place on the first tour and then spent some time to make sure the offer was right. Her recommendations for an attorney and inspection company were right on and I am grateful for her professionalism and that she really cares! I highly recommend her.

Christina Bauman

From our first contact with Kathleen it was clear she showed dedication to our needs and commitment to her craft.

Our entire transaction was conducted via email. Even though our purchase was small we received million dollar service. Even though email seems impersonal she made us feel connected and valued. If you want realtor who follows through promptly and exudes knowledge and commitment we completely recommend Kathleen. Thank you, Kathleen

Pat Lazar

Kathleen is an exception to the Real Estate business.

Most Realtors do not have a clear vision as to how to successfuly market their Seller's property.  Her innovation, dedication and professionalism was an asset to our successful sale and her follow up through closing gave us such peace of mind.

David Scott

Kathleen and her team, Brittany and Tammi, made the sale of our family condo as easy as possible.

Selling a property from a distance, such as ours was, can be very difficult. Kathleen's knowledge and quick response to any of our inquiries made for a positive experience. We would highly recommended her to a buyer or seller.

Robert Connolly

Kathleen Comerford is the most knowledgeable, conscientious, efficient, customer-focused, trustworthy and reasonable real estate professional I have ever had the pleasure to work with.

Based on an opening discussion of our needs, Kathleen did a lot of work up-front to maximize the use of my time on the ground looking for our new Florida home. Once the ideal home was found, Kathleen did much more than I had expected to get the deal closed while consuming the least amount of my personal time. I highly recommend Kathleen Comerford as a real estate professional if you are looking for a home in the Venice/Sarasota/Bradenton area. I know she will do an excellent job helping you find the home that completely fits your lifestyle.

Ed Ryan

Kathleen is a dedicated and detail oriented solution provider.

  She is a reliable and knowledgable real estate agent with a strong understanding of property and financial issues. She assisted us with everything we needed, always provided an answer to our questions in a very timely manner and negotiated well on our behalf. We will use her real estate services again and recommend her to anyone needing assistance with Florida real estate!

Tina Snider

All went very smoothly!

  From etiquette to professionalism, answering questions and explaining procedures. Listing the house was easy enough.  But I did not realize that Kathleen's and her team's involvement involvement would be so extensive.  Very impressive!  Anyone looking for an experienced and effective real estate team can count on the Comerford Group.  My place sold quickly and smoothly -- a testimony of reliability!

Bill Dilworth

You listened to us when we described what we wanted and brought us to just the right place - Grand Palm!

It all happened so quickly that we're still in a bit of a daze. But, we are definitely looking forward to enjoying winters in our new home. Many thanks to you! Eve and Stan

Stan and Eve Rabbiner

Kathleen is an amazing Realtor and businesswoman.

I know we wouldn't be in our beautiful new home if it wasn't for her keen ability and knowledge of how the banking industry works. She is very professional but courteous and friendly and she really cares about the people she is working with. Her team is amazing! I highly recommend Kathleen -- she is an excellent Realtor.

Sherry Szep

Kathleen is the most patient, professional and organized real estate broker I have ever worked with.

Our closing may have been the longest in history!  Yet she stayed positive and encouraging the whole time, despite our fears that the deal may fall through. Thank you Kathleen, we owe you an enormous debt of gratitude and will definitely be buying more properties with your help in future!

Rachel Pearson

The property would have been just right if it would have been on the main floor.

I can't do stairs. They didn't know that. They have been very good to me. Thank you

Nancie Karuza

We met Kathleen at one of her open houses and from the start we were very impressed with her knowledge and experience in real estate.

Very smart! She was responsive to our needs and showed a high level professionalism as she helped us find both a great location and lifestyle.

Ben & Kathie Padilla

Kathleen was very easy to talk to and gave good advise on the area I was interested in.

  She was ready to gather any information she could to help me.

Jan

Kathleen was AMAZING!

!! Went beyond the call of duty. Always there thru each strep of the process by my side with a pleasant disposition and a smile. This was my first home purchase and she made me feel very comfortable thru this very complicated experience. GREAT NEGOTIATOR!!! Really knew how to talk to the seller to get the best possible deal for me. Very skilled and savvy in the Florida real estate market. Was able to asker any questions I had and always had great suggestions. Kathleen loves her work, her profession and it really shows. A great people person!!! I would highly recommend Kathleen for all your real estate ventures.

Alberto Orta

Kathleen was able to get our home sold in a timely manner, and was always available to answer our questions and address our concerns.

Kathleen is very knowledgeable and made this experience very easy and unstressful. We will be telling all of our friends and family about Kathleen and her fantastic team!

Michelle Clanton

It was such a pleasure meeting and dealing with Kathleen, she's professional yet relaxed and very warm & friendly.

We were searching for our piece of paradise on Siesta Key, an investment property which would also serve as a place for us to unwind during the quieter times. With our limited budget, Kathleen was able to help us find just that and we're very happy to say that with some TLC and new "beachy" furnishings & touches, the condo has been renting very well. Not only were we fortunate enough to deal with Kathleen, but she also referred us to a wonderful Legal firm for our closing and their help was invaluable to us. If we're lucky enough to eventually be looking for a second rental property, we'll surely be eager to have Kathleen help us again. Thanks again for everything!

Tara & Mark

Kathleen Comerford and her team were awesome to work with!

She was able to sell my properties in no time, where as my listing just went expired.  I was totally impressed with how fast the offers came in and her attention to all details involved in closing. I would totally recommend her to anyone selling property in Florida!

Diana Renfro

From the very first time we met, it was easy dealing and speaking with Kathleen.

She explained things about the house well and was not "pushy" as some sales people can be. When I had questions, she answered them or found out the answer and did not keep me waiting for long. Thus her follow-up was excellent. When we negotiated on things she was precise and accurate. It was a great and easy transition for me from initially looking at the house to ultimately purchasing it.

John H Rottner

I'd been vacationing in Anna Maria and very much wanted to find a permanent property there.

After much research on the web I found Kathleen, she had very good credentials and although was not located in that area, (she was in Sarasota and was looking in Mantee) was impressed with what I saw and decided to contact her. For a year and a half we communicated on line and saw many properties in and around Anna Maria and Sarasota , just to be sure we were making the right decision. Evertually we decided on Anna Maria as our destination, and saw in excess of 30 properties on the island. Kathleen was very patient and very informative about the market etc. We made an initial bid on a property, but after the survey and with communication with Kathleen decided to decline on the offer. In December a property I had initially seen at an open house came up for sale again, after 2 offers had fallen threw. We made an offer at their price, but they were reluctant to not take a cash purchase, we had the money and financing and with Kathleen's advice we entered into negotiations , after much tooing and Froing Kathleen finally came to an agreement and we proceeded . It was a hard 2 months as the seller was not cooperative, and their agents were less than accomadating. Finally . Thanks to Kathleen's expertise and Knowledge of the market we were finally able to purchase our dream property. Thanks Kathleen, you are an expert at what you do and you have amazing contacts to make it happen.

Catherine Papaevagelou

My experience with Kathleen Comerford has spanned over 5 years, I trust her judgment and look to her for suggestions.

I was asked to like her new company, she did not need to ask me I would volunteer to do so to anyone. Very down to earth person, genuine, does return phone calls. Very glad to have found her, to sell, buy and advise on where to turn to for many things, outside of real estate. I highly recommend her and her knowledge. Also has a very capable assistant, Brittany.

Elaine Clark

A most wonderful person to know and work with.

Searching for a home with Kathleen was like going shopping with a friend. We thank her for her knowledgeable guidance in our search for a home. The best! Thanks again Kathy.

Lloyd

I can not recommend Kathleen highly enough.

  She was great!  When any questions came up, Kathleen was always there.  When an issue came up that did not pertain to her even several months after my sale, she was quick to help and was able to resolve the problem.  I always felt I was her number one priority!  She did a great job selling my condo and for our asking price.

Bill Kiesel

Kathleen is a true professional, an absolute delight to work with.

Her knowledge, honesty and amiability made me know very quickly that I trust her and wouldn't want any other realtor to assist my husband and I in our home hunt!

kristin

Kathleen was quick to pick up on who we were and what we might like to see.

She took the time to take us to see some neighborhoods currently building new homes.  Based upon what we saw and Kathleen's guidance, we plan to reverse our original idea and live in Florida and "summer" in Maine instead!  We enjoyed working with her and look forward to a continued relationship and finding a home in Florida.

John and Terri Chamberlain

Excellent experience.

Sold in two days and everything was taken care of professionally. Kathleen and Brittany's staging made my condo look like a property you would see in an interior decorating magazine.
