BUYER AND SELLER CLIENT REVIEW
It was a pleasure working with you on the purchase of our home. You were both professional and responsive to our needs. I am grateful that you made sure the ‘I's’ were dotted and ‘T's’ crossed. The advice you gave us was to the point and helpful. Again, thank you both for your support and help
I appreciated the efficiency and quickness with which my property purchase was handled. I thoroughly enjoyed working withMaureen Horn and must say she helped to change my past opinion of real estate agents. Everyone I met or talked with was very friendly which made for a pleasant experience.

Maureen patiently showed us properties consistent with our shifting requirements. She has great knowledge of the area, learned our tastes and desires and objectively described the pluses and minuses. We have been involved in many business relationships in our lives, but I can't think of any more satisfying and successful as our relationship with Maureen and Steve. My wife and I have become proselytizers for Sarasota and always recommend Maureen. We cannot recommend Maureen and Steve highly enough!

Maureen Horn was an outstanding sales agent in every way. Personalized service, marketing, follow up, advice/council. She sold my Property in 14 days and I totally credit her marketing for such a fast sale. She is without question the best Realtor I have ever encountered and I have experienced numberous transactions over the years. Word of Mouth is -She has a fantastic reputation and well earned.

Maureen was the listing Agent for my property.She is a true professional. Her expertise and customer service is unsurpassed. With Maureen's help we were able to get our home sold quickly and for the price we wanted.

Maureen was professional and direct. Reminded me of Sgt. Joe Friday from the old Dragnet TV show, "Just the facts, M'am!" She didn't tell us what we wanted to hear but what we needed to hear.
Steven and Patricia Bergman (Buyer) -April 24, 2015
We have purchased sixteen properties in our lifetime - Maureen is by far the best realtor we have ever known!
Bruce and Kimberly Peterson (Buyer) April 20, 2015
Maureen Horn is an outstanding sales rep and even better individual! She got us to focus, sold our house in 6 days, and found another property for us within the next several weeks at a price that we wanted. Can't say enough great things about her!

Stacy and Becky Smothers (Buyer and Seller) January 9, 2015
Maureen and Steve Horn are without question THE best real estate sales team we have encountered in over 40 years of real estate transactions in 4 states (NY, MA, RI, FL). They were accessible, thorough, transparent, candid and knowlegable. We recommend them highly.
Bob and Cathy Carniaux (Buyer) September 29, 2014
I was very impressed with Maureen Horn's diligence and how hard she worked (on a Sunday morning) to finalize the negotiation with the Seller that enabled me to buy the property I decided was best suited for my needs. It was a true pleasure to work with Maureen!
Forrest McSurdy (Buyer) September 14, 2014
Maureen had information about the area I would not have found on my own. Both she and Steve jumped on every question or problem and got answers and options immediately. They stayed right by our side the entire way and made the process very smooth. We are happy with our property choice and very happy with our agents Maureen and Steve
Rob and Kathy De Marco, (Buyer) August 8, 2014
She is hard working to a fault and never misses a beat. Knows her market and what it would take to sell our home. She is pin point accurate and we followed her sage advice to the letter. She notices all the little things others missed and gave me polite timelines to present our house beautifully to the small market in this price range.
Really admire her honesty, energy and caring personality.
Only wish I had met her sooner but, now will recommend her with great enthusiasm!

Sam and Myoko Morton (Buyer and Seller) January 11, 2014
Very, very satisfied with representation.
Maureen Horn was excellent
We live out of state. The week of our closing my husband was admitted into the hospital. Two days before the closing it became apparent that we could not come for the closing. I spoke to Maureen and Steve about our dilemma. Maureen took over, called the title company, assured me that we could close by using e-mail. All I had to do was print the forms, sign them and fax hem back to the title company. It had been an extremely stressful week and they will never know how much we appreciated their kindness and professionalism. They are wonderful to work with.
Joe and Margy Smothers- (Buyer) March 25, 2013
Maureen & Steve worked very hard to help us find our dream home. Their attention to detail and quick response to questions we had was at a level hard to find in the industry. Definitely would recommend!!

This sales person is the best. She is at the top of "her game". How refreshing in today's world. Thank you
Larry and Marilyn Reed- (Buyer) June 30, 2012
The latest newsletter prompted me to write a note a meant to send long ago in praise of the great work done for us by Maureen Horn and her husband Steve. Please pass this on to Michael.
We bought a condo in Marina Tower a couple of years ago with the help of the Horns, but that is the least interesting part of the story.
We had started our search more than 4 years earlier, coming to Sarasota once or twice a year to enjoy the area and look at property. We decided to focus on downtown, but we looked at places from under $200K to well over $1 mil. Maureen patiently showed us properties consistent with our shifting requirements. She has great knowledge of the area, learned our tastes and desires, and objectively described the pluses and minuses of each property relative to our needs.
We made several offers, and had a few close calls, and finally closed on the MT unit, with which we are quite happy.
Maureen was a tiger throughout the process. I'm a pretty high energy guy, but after a day visiting property with Maureen, I was exhausted. Maureen headed back to the office or off to an evening meeting!
Maureen did not stop when the deal closed either. She helped us clean up the place, and sort the trash from the treasures from the stuff left behind by the prior owner. We ended up getting a nice check from the consignment shop for stuff we would have cheerfully tossed!
We have been involved in many business relationships in our lives and careers, but I can't think of any more satisfying and eventually successful as our relationship.
My wife and I have become proselytizers for Sarasota, and always recommend Maureen to folks if they start to get serious about buying.
We cannot recommend Maureen and Steve highly enough!

Tina James Helped me sell a home
Maureen helped me find and purchase my apartment and now, five years later, has helped me sell it. It has all been painless! She is the consumate professional. I actually feel protected by her, both from "normal" pitfalls in the real estate tansactions, and from my own anxieties and miscalculations. The participation of her husband, Steve, has also been invaluable. They are thorough, responsive, and a pleasure to work with.

Maureen kept me well informed on the progress of my condo sale. She is great to answer questions and gave me excellent advice on the preparation of my unit to show. I would recommend her and Steve to anyone.

Beyond our expectations! Exceptional! Our home was on the market for 1 day and we had 3 offers. Maureen educated and advised and we made the right decisions based on that information. Maureen & Steve handled all hurdles and obstacles before we even knew that they existed. Maureen & Steve were available to us 24/7, with understanding, patience and solutions. Maureen and Steve exemplify what "servicing the client" is all about, they truly exceeded our expectations!

Maureen and her husband Steve were exceptional to deal with. They were always available with any questions we had. Our home was listed and closed within a few weeks and everything was handled without problems. They know how to get it done.

Dear Ms Saunders,
It only happens on rare occassions that one has the opportunity to meet and work with the BEST real estate agents as in Maureen and Steve Horn. We have worked with many agents over the last 25 yrs, but none have come close to the skill set which they pocess. Maureen is extremely intelligent and has the gift of judging one's personality. You clearly run the finest agency in the Sarasota area and the Horns reflect your passion for excellence. Thank you for sharing them with us. I hope to have the opportunity to thank you in person.
Drs.Ken and Suzy Press NJ
“We appreciate the expertise you’ve provided over the past few months in the sale of our home. If we ever decide to buy again, we’ll definitely give you a call. We’ll also be sure to refer others to you.
Tim and Cindy Clark - Mote Ranch
“Maureen is both customer and results oriented. She offered the most thoughtful and realistic program of the many agents we interviewed. Her active participation in securing our Buyer made all the difference. It wouldn’t have happened if she had delegated out listing to an assistant. She truly “walked her talk” and sold our house in a very difficult environment.”
Bolton and Maureen Drackett-Sellers 2 properties valued 5 million (West of Trail)
“It’s been a very difficult few years for us, and even though we had to sell our property under such difficult circumstances, we are both very grateful to have had the fortune of your caring and very capable assistance. You treated us like I would expect to be treated by our own family, such a grueling process. You were always readily available to answer our concerns and this made the process that much easier for us. We really were very impressed with your knowledge and persistence throughout.”
Dr. F. T Osprey
“You did a great job selling my condo on Longboat. My Brother is thinking of selling his condo downtown. I told him he wouldn’t find an Agent that would work harder for him. If you want to use me as a reference, please give my name and number and I will be happy to speak to anyone on your behalf.“
Pat Mohr- Longboat Key
“Just wanted to say thanks again for allow your hard work selling this house. Market conditions were unfortunate but, you guys did a great job and helped me bring closure to a difficult period of my life. Much appreciated.”
“It’s been 22 years since we sold a house. You were wonderful and we couldn’t have done it without you. You walked us through the entire listing and selling procedure.”
Ed and Karen McDonnell Lake Estates
“You found the home we love and you sold our house in exactly the time frame we wanted. Thank you for the strategy. I’ll recommend you to everyone I know.
Ian Black-Roseann Argenti Hamptons
“You kept me informed and I know I was able to stay on top of the market and my competition at Beach Place. I know you got us the best price in the marketplace.”
