We hardly know where to begin thanking you for all that you have done to make this sale happen. One thing is for sure – you are the epitome of what a professional realtor should be.

Sandra and I have used Joel Schemmel and his team as our only Sarasota realtor for eight years. Joel has sold homes and a condo, bought homes for us (one home was sight unseen, trusting Joel’s excellent judgement) and we’ve especially valued his judgement regarding pricing to sell, what offer to accept and what price to begin negotiating.

I cannot imagine buying or selling real estate without Joel’s guidance. Sincerely,

– Barry
