Name: John and Karen Wang Date: Aug 19, 2013 Communication: Honesty & Integrity: Market Knowledge: Real Estate Process: Review: We would highly recommend Sara Goldberg of Dream Realty as a realtor. She was able to help us clarify exactly what type of property we were wanted to purchase and was very persistent in getting viewings of available listings.
We went to Madeira Beach, FL in May 2013 with the goal of purchasing a beach condo. Upon our arrival in Florida (from Georgia) we contacted Sara and explained that we wanted to purchase a beach condo in a very short time frame. Sara helped us to clarify exactly what type of property we were interested in – beach front, 2 bedroom, 2 bath. This was very helpful in getting us focused and also helped us to define our search criteria.
Next, Sara reviewed with us available properties that met our criteria and we determined which listings we would like to visit. Sara contacted numerous realtors and brokers and within a short time arranged a schedule for us to visit available properties. This involved scheduling meeting times with realtors and /or obtaining keys to properties. Several properties were very difficult to schedule a viewing but Sara was very persistent and was able to get us in. One of these properties was just what we were looking for and Sara made all the necessary arrangements for us to get the property under contract. We were able to close on the property six weeks later and are now the proud owners of a beach front, 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo on Madeira Beach, FL.
Thank you Sara!

Sara's knowledge, thoroughness and commitment to helping us were key to our finding our new home. She paid attention to our likes and priorities and in one day she showed us a condo that matched our criteria. She also gave us a referral to a mortgage broker who did a phenomenal job for us enabling us to close on the property in less than one month. As a buyer’s agent, we knew Sara was on our side and was looking out for our best interest. Thank you Sara.”
Name: Scott & Lorie (U.S.) Date: Jul 01, 2013 Communication: Honesty & Integrity: Market Knowledge: Real Estate Process: Review: “Being new to Clearwater, My family and I needed a realtor who we could trust. When I first met Sara I knew we were in good hands. We told Sara what we were looking for and the amount we could afford to spend. After many hours of driving me, my wife and my children around she delivered exactly what we asked for. Sara's only concern through this entire process was to make us happy and find us what we were looking for. To say she went the extra mile is an understatement. If the day should come that we are in the market for a newer home there is no doubt who I will be calling upon. Thank you Sara for being who you are.”
Name: Fred & Linda (Atlanta) Date: Jul 01, 2013 Communication: Honesty & Integrity: Market Knowledge: Real Estate Process: Review: “We want you to know that you found us exactly what we wanted in a second home and made the entire, search, offer and closing a very smooth experience! We had given very specific details of location, structure, landscaping and more and this team located it for us! We made several trips to the area and looked at quite a few selections. Your trustworthiness guided us forward to our “little house” as I call our new place. It is perfect and I knew it when I walked through the front door! Thanks again for making our house-hunting experience pleasant, easy and profitable.”
Name: Arlene (N.Y.) Date: Jul 01, 2013 Communication: Honesty & Integrity: Market Knowledge: Real Estate Process: Review: “Sara Goldberg helped me find my dream home a year ago. I was moving here from Staten Island, NY and in the beginning I was very nervous about the whole thing. I can honestly say the entire process was totally pleasurable, from finding a place through to the closing. Sara was very efficient and got things done like it was yesterday! I hardly had to do anything. I told her what I wanted; she listened and answered all my questions. She took the reins and got the job done but she never pushed me into anything, just guided me and let me make my own decisions. Time after time, as much as I wanted, she took me around to see everything I wanted to see. She was very patient, helpful and honest with me throughout. The whole process went so smoothly. When we went looking for houses it was like being out with a friend. I was not used to experiencing these kinds of qualities from a service professional. Sara made finding and buying my home a pleasure. I’ve been here a year now. I love my house! I love my neighbors and new friends! It is just what I’ve always wanted. I’m very happy. I would recommend Sara to anybody and everybody and if I ever look for another home, it would be you Sara.”
Name: Pat (Syracuse, NY) Date: Jul 01, 2013 Communication: Honesty & Integrity: Market Knowledge: Real Estate Process: Review: Trust can sometimes be difficult to find in our society today, but I found it here with Dream Realty. Buying a condo "sight unseen" and being 2000 miles away, I was able to find an agent using the internet who far exceeded my expectations. My agent's attention to detail, broad knowledge of Florida real estate & warranties, availability for phone calls and timely responses to emails while representing my interests at closing were all instrumental for a successful deal. For someone who doesn't take many financial chances like this and wants to maintain a good credit score, I couldn't be more happier with the end results which would not of been possible if not for the agent's assurance, coaching and wealth of expertise given my initial logistical concerns which quickly dissipated as we moved throughout this working relationship. I would strongly recommend this agency to any prospective buyer and would welcome a call to discuss. Great job Dream Realty.

Name: Steven (U.S.) Date: Jul 01, 2013 Communication: Honesty & Integrity: Market Knowledge: Real Estate Process: Review: “Sara, we just wanted to say how delighted we are for having you as our real estate consultant in acquiring our first property in St. Petersburg…Your insight into the local market, and suggestions of factors we should consider in making a purchase gave us a great advantage. Whatever questions we had, you always came back with thoughtful answers and ideas that made things clearer and easier for us. Your patience and follow-up and attention to detail made everything work so well. You stayed right on our contract offer until we knew we had an acceptance from the seller. Then you ushered us through closing without a hitch. Being a former closing attorney in Maryland, I can say that this was one of the smoothest transactions I have seen. You were wonderful to work with…Thank you so very much for all your kind help.”
Name: Sabrina (U.S.) Date: Jul 01, 2013 Communication: Honesty & Integrity: Market Knowledge: Real Estate Process: Review: “As a first time home buyer you made the process easy and comfortable. When I first started my search I was looking to purchase with another person and you told me the pros and cons of short-sales in a language I could understand. Later when my situation changed and I found myself with a smaller budget- looking to purchase by myself, you were quick to show me tons of new options. You helped me find exactly what I wanted/needed and I am overjoyed with the outcome! You were even kind enough to drive me to the airport after signing the closing papers. I am so happy to have found you at this time in my life and would recommend you to anyone looking for a home. Your flexibility, passion, and knowledge helped me find the perfect place to call my own- and that’s priceless. Forever Grateful”

Your tireless assistance and guidance through the buying process as well as the help you offered us afterwards, from providing us with contacts for the renovation to checking on the condo to assure us that all was well. You’ve been so much more than a realtor to us and we will certainly recommend you to all our fellow Canadians.”
Name: Matts & Lennard (Sweeden) Date: Jul 01, 2013 Communication: Honesty & Integrity: Market Knowledge: Real Estate Process: Review: “I just want to thank you for all the help you gave us when we bought our villa in St. Petersburg. Since we live in Sweden and were not able to be present at the closing, you helped us and we always felt safe with you by our side. I think I sent you over 50 emails (sorry about that) with all kinds of stupid questions, and every time I got a quick response back.....Me and my father will warmly recommend you to all our friends and everyone looking for a nice property in the Clearwater area. You are the best!”
Name: Nilufer (Turkey) Date: Jul 01, 2013 Communication: Honesty & Integrity: Market Knowledge: Real Estate Process: Review: “You not only devoted all your time to me and showed me as much as I demanded and even more but also helped me to understand many facts about the buildings, locations and beyond….not being used to the location was one of my disadvantages but you made it easier for me to decide for the right property for me and my family in your very professional and friendly way…thank you very much in helping me to take the right steps and made this a good investment in this important decision of our lives.”
Name: Randy & Cathy (U.S.) Date: Jul 01, 2013 Communication: Honesty & Integrity: Market Knowledge: Real Estate Process: Review: “We have been extremely satisfied with our relationship with Sara Goldberg. She made the entire process of selecting, purchasing and closing on a property a low-stress event. She has gone above and beyond to take care of our needs, and we would definitely recommend her to others.”
Name: John & Donna (U.K.) Date: Jul 01, 2013 Communication: Honesty & Integrity: Market Knowledge: Real Estate Process: Review: “Here are some thoughts about our experience: Our experience with Sara Goldberg has been top notch. I have summed it up using the 3 Rs: Responsive – Sara has been terrific being available any day or time of the week….Responsible – she has been a partner for us throughout the whole process. We feel we know things won’t be dropped and that Sara had our best interest in hand…this is important when sorting through many properties and trying to get to the right home without a lot of hassle. Results – this is the most important. We achieved what we set out to achieve and we are very happy about it. She made the journey enjoyable along the way and we closed on the property we wanted and in the timeframe and price expected! Thank you Sara!”
