You demonstrated, at all times, the highest levels of service and professionalism while maintaining a very important personal touch.

Mr. & Mrs. R. Lenczycki, LaBellasara, Golden Gate Point

You went above and beyond the call of duty with your efforts to help us relocate. With your talent and networking skills, we were not only able to purchase our home, but we were able to purchase a condominium for our daughter…sight unseen. Needless to say we are all delighted with our new homes. Thank you again for ALL you did for us.

Robert & Mary Ruth Cutler, Greenwich, Connecticut

This has been quite the ride! We are beyond glad to see the finish line in sight….Your experience, knowledge, kind-hearted and candid approach kept us moving forward. You by far surpassed any expectation we had, because at the end of the day we knew someone had our backs, and had our family’s best interest at heart. For that, we are forever grateful.

The Osterhoudt Family

We were very happy to have Tom & Monica work with us to both sell our home and purchase another. Monica scheduled all meetings and interactions at our convenience, often after work and on weekends. They provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our home for sale and provided an extensive profile on the house for people touring. They promptly returned all calls, emails, and texts and had open houses/tours in place as soon as possible. They worked hard, fast, and illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation. Our home sold in 4 days after listing! We truly appreciated Tom and Monica’s calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process.

David & Molly Conger, The Landings

Tom and Charlotte Hedge and The Hedge Team were instrumental in selling our family home on Venice Island, in a very short period of time and for more money than we thought we could get. Charlotte’s honest approach to pricing our home and marketing it in all of the periodicals available was key to our quick sale. She and Tom are both professional, personable, and have become our friends through this process. After a successful and stress less sale of our home, we purchased a new villa in a community in Venice that we now call home. With their expertise in new construction, we were able to negotiate with the builder to add a few items to our home that we otherwise would not have been able to achieve.

We would most certainly use them for any of our real estate needs in the future and without question would highly recommend them to anyone we know who are looking for seasoned Real Estate professionals who go the extra mile to help one achieve their goals.

Sincerely, John & Gayle Rector

Dear Charlotte,

Thank you and your two Tom’s (Sr. and Jr.) for the excellent presentation of our property on Longboat Key. My family and I were so pleased with the virtual tour photos and advertising that was done. It brought us an offer within two weeks!

The Hedge team is like working with family in guiding the process for a sale and seeing that everything is in order.

We highly recommend Charlotte and her Team.

Kathryn Hunt and Family, Longboat Key, Florida

My wife and I wanted to let you know how pleased we were with The Hedge Team regarding the recent sale of our property in Laurel Oak Estates. We had purchased the home through Charlotte, six years ago, and she kept in touch with us over the years. When the time came to sell, we called The Hedge Team to discuss marketing the property for sale. Charlotte did an excellent market analysis to establish the price of the home and the marketing materials prepared by Sotheby’s were striking. The Hedge Team’s attention to our listing was constant and, to make a long story short, we had a contract on the property in less than five months. Today’s market requires creativity, sound professional advice, a depth of experience and good old fashioned hard work! We would strongly recommend The Hedge Team in all of these categories

Dale McSween, former President, InterTape Polymer, Manatee, FL, and Canada

Just a quick note to tell you how much I have appreciated your help with the sale of my mother’s villa. The last several years have been tough for me due to her illness and passing, and then being a care-giver to her elderly partner. When it came time to dispose of their possessions and sell their villa, your Team was so very helpful and made an emotional and difficult task feel effortless. From connecting me with the “White Glove” service at Goodwill, to the recommendations from all of you regarding what “sprucing up” of the villa would be most effective in helping to sell it. From your “Coming Soon” notification to all of the other marketing and promotion you provided, notice of our property for sale was widely advertised. We received an offer quickly and Tom, Jr provided good advice as to what amount we should counter with and accept. Things progressed quickly and we closed soon thereafter! Thank you so much for your Team’s professionalism and support during this difficult time. Everyone went above and beyond! I will be very happy to highly recommend you to any of my friends who are looking to sell or buy a home.

Susan Baugh, Sarasota, FL

Thank you for all your help in purchasing our condo on Siesta Key. You saved us a lot of time and legwork by describing, over the phone, the upgrades, accessories, furnishings, and fantastic views in the unit we bought, sight unseen! It was exactly what we were looking for and we were extremely delighted with the condo when we flew in for the closing.

Bruce & Linda Goldstein, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

We began working with Charlotte to locate and purchase a residence in Sarasota. She provided all of the expected services in a competent and pro-fessional manner. When we requested her assistance with locating support services, her true excellence became evident. Charlotte arranged for a pre-move-in cleaning of our new condominium at the Oaks and when our cleaner was unable to do the job, Charlotte did it herself and stocked our kitchen with her gift of “necessary foot items”. She even placed a beautiful orchid in our foyer to welcome us. She has continued to be our “go to” resource person providing very useful vendors as we settle into our new home. She is truly a credit to her Team and her real estate company.

Eileen & JP Sakey, NC & the Oaks, Osprey, FL

Dear Charlotte, Tom and the “Hedge Team”:

Ana and I would like to express our sincerest appreciation to you for your exceptional work in the sale of our home. It was a thoroughly professional job from the listing process through the closing.

Your team approach to marketing and sales was one coordinated effort, a reflection of your years of experience and commitment to simply “get it done.” Everyone on the Team was personally involved with the process, they all knew the details of the home which was impressive. Tom’s contractor experience and unwavering positive attitude was appreciated beyond words.

I would be seriously remiss in not mentioning that Ana and 1noticed how courteous and responsive you and the Team were to the selling agent, actually to all agents who visited the home. We believe that to be one of the reasons we received three written offers on the same day!

You’re a credit to your profession and we wish you continued success.

Ralph and Ana Tirabassi, Sarasota, Florida

There are no words sufficient to describe the positive experience which we received from Charlotte Hedge and the entire Hedge Team. The Hedge Team represented our interests in a total of 5 transactions during the course of the last eight years in a professional and extremely competent manner. Since we are absentee owners’ Charlotte coordinated the purchases and sales and all of the necessary steps during the entire process.

We had virtually no concerns during what can be a stressfully period. We attribute Charlotte and the Hedge Team in handling these details in an organized, detailed and professional manner.

We are so pleased that we have referred numerous friends to her and they have enjoyed the same professional approach to their transactions also.

We can’t thank Charlotte, Tom Sr., Tom Jr. and Monica for all of their guidance and assistance.

Linda and Bruce Goldstein Longboat Key, Florida

Tom Sr., Tom Jr., Monica, and Charlotte –

What a wonderful experience working with all of you culminating with the successful sale of our house! Eva and I cant say enough regarding your efforts, your constant consideration and attention to detail. We believe all these efforts were responsible for the many, many showings you achieved for our property, many more than any other listed house on Casey Key. Please feel free to have any potential clients contact us for a testimonial.

Jud & Eva Stone, 3298 Casey Key Road, Nokomis, FL

My wife and I worked with The Hedge Team remotely during 2016 and in person this year. The service that was provided to us was beyond our expectations. They first acquainted us with the Sarasota area by providing us with all kinds of information visitors from out of state need. In our initial in-person meeting, they took several hours to listen and understand our needs and tastes. Over the course of the next 2 weeks, they showed us properties that were well suited to our needs, resulting in an eventual purchase. Every step of the purchase process was easy due to their focus on serving the client. Their numerous contacts were also extremely helpful for out of state visitors. Once we left for home, they continued their excellent support by providing estimates for repairs, actually managing some repairs, performing the final walk-through with our home inspector, and attending the mail away closing. The Team redefines true real estate professionals. I would not hesitate to enthusiastically recommend them to others searching for properties in the area.

Bill and Alice Sandifer, Kendall Park, NJ and Longboat Key, FL

Having purchased many homes over the years, we were more than pleased with the support Charlotte and her team provided us. In particular, Charlotte listened to our requirements and then responded to our needs. She did not waste our time showing homes that did not meet our criteria. Based upon our experience we will highly recommend Charlotte and The Hedge Team to others.

Tony & Rosemary Finizio, Windham, New Hampshire

We met Charlotte and The Hedge Team when we first started looking for a place in Florida to avoid the New York City winters. We looked on the East Coast as well as the West Coast. We selected Sarasota in no small measure because of Charlotte. She presented the city to us as the warm and friendly place that we have come to know that it is. She took the time to understand our needs without ever appearing as though she was only interested in selling us something. Our trust in Charlotte was a major reason we decided to buy in this community. Through this time we have become good friends with Tom and Charlotte and still admire their client first approach to their profession. I would unhesitatingly recommend them to anyone interested in real estate

Bob & Marie Hunter, The Ritz Carlton Beach Residences, Lido Key, FL

I want to commend “The Hedge Team” for the fabulous job that was performed for our two units at the Longboat Key Club. From the beginning, it was evident that this project would be a success. I was impressed with the aggressive national marketing campaign that resulted in multiple offers. The sometime challenging real estate market requires creativity to deliver results. The auction format created demand that was otherwise lacking. All details were professionally handled and everyone was well organized. We were able to liquidate two luxury condomium-hotels with impressive results. One unit sold pre-auction and closed within two weeks. I highly recommend The Hedge Team to anyone looking for a highly effective and proven organization.

Ivan Mariduena, Jennings Realty, Evanston, Illinois and Longboat Key, FL

My experience with your Team was amazing! I was under very tight time constraints, as my home in IL sold quickly and I had secured employment in Sarasota with six weeks to make the move. Tom Jr met me to look at several homes over a holiday weekend and with his guidance found me just the right home to fit my budget. Tom was instrumental in helping me find financing and all the logistics that go with closing on a home. The closing was flawless! I am very grateful to Charlotte and Tom Jr for making me feel so welcomed to the area, taking such good care of me, and making me feel like I’ve known them forever.

Patti Isenberg, Boys & Girls Club or Sarasota, FL and Lakewood Ranch

I met Charlotte, who was referred by our family attorney, to discuss selling our family gulf front home on Longboat Key. Because I live so far away, I was concerned about all the things that needed to be done. My concerns were ill-founded. Within a matter of days, Tom & Charlotte had facilitated repairs and upgrades to make the condo more attractive to potential buyers. One of the most important things to me was the regular communication about the progress. After 7 months (mostly in the summer), we accepted an offer and we closed and I didn’t even have to attend…Charlotte took care of everything! In short, I was quite pleased with the whole Team. Without reservation, I can recommend Charlotte and The Hedge Team for their dedicated work and expertise

John R. Schroeder, Wisconsin and Longboat Key, FL

Noreen and I are delighted with our purchase of a home on Longboat Key and have only the warmest feelings for the treatment we received from the entire Hedge Team. Thank you for introducing us to the charms of Sarasota and for your extreme professionalism.

Richard Ackerman, Esquire, Providence, Rhode Island and Long Boat Key, FL

Thanks for making this one of our best moves ever. We will always think of you when anyone asks for a recommendation of someone who is more than just a real estate agent.

Tom & Cheryl Crawford, Naples, Florida
