Dear Anita,
How can we ever begin to thank you for all that you did to help us relocate to Sarasota? From that first "blind" phone call to Caldwell Banker to keeping an eye out for our house after we purchased it, you went above and beyond what we could ever have expected from a realtor.
Your willingness to devote several days to us over a three year period without ever pressuring us to buy before we were ready, was most commendable and the reason that we kept coming back to you. You listened to our needs and provided us with welcome and knowledgeable information and advice. At no point did you ever try to convince us to spend more that we had set as our limit. You helped us find the perfect house and we couldn't be happier in our new home.
Anita, I could go on and on about how you previewed homes prior to "buying" trip so that our time was spent in an efficient and productive manner, and how you found us reliable service providers once we actually purchased a home. Most importantly, you earned our trust, our admiration and our friendship. You are a true professional who brings credit to your calling and we are ever so grateful that you were the person who responded to our request for help.
With love and gratitude,

Dear Anita,

Our family would like to extend our sincerest appreciation for the help and effort you've put during our purchase of the condo on Longboat Key. We've been referred to you by our friends, who couldn't stop talking about the most wonderful realtor they've met on Longboat Key, who not only helped them make the purchase, but also became a friend, interior decoration advisor and construction consultant.

When the time came for us to look for the condo, the timing couldn't be any worse...the last week of December, Christmas and New Years Holidays. When I asked you to show us several condos, I couldn't even imagine in my wildest dreams that 2.1/2 weeks later, you'd be representing our family as the closing.

Once we met you, when you came to pick us up, I knew that we were in good hands and there is a chance for us to own a condo on Longboat Key sooner rather than later. What really impressed us was your knowledge of the real estate market and the great intuition that you exhibited in preparation of the viewings. Your cheerful outlook on life and sunny personality helped to build the trust between us right away. Lucky for us, the second condo on your list was the exact match. However, I'm sure that if it wasn't the second condo, but rather 202, you'd still be as relaxed, comforting and patient.

Thank you so much for handling all the paperwork before and during the closing. It was great to be in New York, knowing that the person representing us would do everything the right way. We love the condo and hope to refer you to all our friends and acquaintances in the future. Hope to see you during our next trip to Longboat Key.

Love from all of us,

Dear Anita,

I want to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt appreciation for all you've done in helping us find our "Dream Home" here in Sarasota.

I could tell the moment my husband Mike and I met you, four years ago while on vacation, that there was an instant connection. Even though we told you we were not ready to make the move from New York to Florida at that time, you spent the entire day showing us homes in the surrounding areas and pointing out features we should look for and those to avoid. We both thought you went above and beyond in giving us insight into perspective homes and locations where we might want to eventually move.

After selling our home in the Hudson Valley Region of Walden, New York, where we lived our entire married life and retiring from our respective careers (IBM and construction) after 35 years, we decided it was time to call Anita for some serious house hunting. I was amazed that you recognized us immediately and remembered the facts about our live and what we wanted in a Florida home. We were impressed!!!!! After previewing several homes for us prior to our arrival, we set out together to find a home. I absolutely could not believe that we found the perfect home on our first day out. Based on our wants, needs, price range and more importantly, our personalities, you found THE RIGHT ONE for us. We couldn't be happier.

We can never thank you enough for your insight, wealth of experience and knowledge of the real estate business including contracts. We didn't even have to make a special trip down for the house closing......you handled that too!! We put our trust and faith in you with our future and you didn't let us down. For sure, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to family and friends. Not only did we gain a reputable & reliable real estate agent, but we gained a very dear friend.

With sincere thanks,

Lynn & Mike Comicz

Dear Anita,

I wanted to write this letter to thank you for all of your help and expertise regarding our recent home purchase at 3030 Sunset Beach Drive, Venice, Florida. You came highly recommended from our friends in Florida. I have to let you know, from being in the construction business all of my life in the Boston area, I would take a "wait and see" attitude, until I personally met you.

My "wait and see" philosophy paid off, as I was greatly impressed with your knowledge of this real estate market, knowledge of varied mortgage lenders and personal attention to both my wife and myself. Thank you for making our out-of-state-purchase as smooth as it was and for being more of a friend than a business acquaintance.

I have already given your name to many friends and relatives and would gladly do so in the future. My best to you and your son Eric.

Dear Anita,

My wife Catherine and I required an experienced realtor in the Venice area and Anita Caravello came highly recommended from friends who also personally used Anita as their realtor and lived in Venice.

Anita represented to us all facets of the home purchase, from the home search, to the move, and beyond. Anita is not only knowledgeable, but she has the experience and personality to calmly handle those difficult situations that seem to spring-up out of nowhere.

Purchasing a home can be stressful, especially when you're out of town, but Anita was there with her warm and friendly manner to put everything into focus.

We do not think of Anita as our realtor, she is a partner and friend.

Dear Anita,

We live in New York and for the longest time have fantasized about having a vacation place in Longboat Key. When we started to look for a condo, we were concerned about a long distance purchase.

Anita put us at ease right away. She became our eyes and ears. She took care of all our needs; from doing all the research, closing on time and personally inspecting our place. She even, gave us recommendations on remodeling and contractors. Now, we have a "Wonderful Escape", and a friend who is always very helpful and resourceful.

The bottom line, Anita truly gives a new meaning to the words "Complete Customer Satisfaction." We have already recommended her to several friends.
