We bought a property in Florida in May 2011. We were looking for a family holiday home and hoped to let it out short term as well. Bren and Garry were recommended to us from a property broker in the UK. We had no idea on where to look in Florida and basically gave Garry a list of what we were trying to achieve. He knew instinctively what was feasible for our budget and made immediate recommendations on where to look and what would and wouldn't work. Bren spent a lot of time patiently driving us around to get a feel for the various communities and showed us houses that fitted our requirements. We were very impressed with the level of knowledge and service that they both have. They did not push us in anyway but gave us plenty of information and space to help us make a decision. Particularly we were impressed with their response time. Any questions we had were immediately answered in a polite and professional manner. We bought a beautiful home for a great price. It was a very positive experience and that was down to Bren and Garry. We have no problem recommending them at all!

I'm delighted to have this opportunity to endorse the work of Brenda and Garry. I first became introduced to them back in 2007. I was interested in buying a property in the U.S. but didn't have the necessary contacts or information. I happened to see Garry had won an international award for best REALTOR®, so I decided to go with him, and I haven't looked back since. Garry is a complete professional in his work. He is an excellent communicator an keeps you aware of what's going on at all times. He simplified the whole American process for us and always made us feel as if WE were the only people that mattered. Thanks to him, and Brenda, we now feel completely confident in the whole process, a very important consideration when you live four thousand miles away. This confidence is evidenced by the fact that we have had numerous other dealings with Garry since. The most important thing for us is trust and this has never been an issue with Garry or Brenda.

Bren Walmsley and her office walked us thru the process of buying our vacation home. We explained to Bren what we were looking for in a vacation home and with Bren's critical knowledge of the area and the purchasing and selling of foreign owned property we found the vacation home of our dreams. Bren kept us in the loop and explained each step of the process with us. Everything went smoothly and we were very pleased with the service and expertise of Bren and her company that we purchased another property, along with selling our original one. Thanks Bren.

I happened to luck out in contacting Bren Walmsley off the internet, picking her as she was a listing agent for some of the properties I was looking at. Bren was very attentive right from my first email, always returning any phone calls or emails in very prompt fashion. We were buying from out of the country and Bren helped us negotiate a completely new experience with relative ease. In our first meeting she had recommendations and assistance for each and every item we would encounter, from insurance to management companies to taxes, everything. The knowledge that Bren provided was excellent and immediately put us at ease. We learned within the first few hours that this was exactly who we wanted to work with. We had the pleasure of meeting Garry when Bren was out of town and the service maintained a very high level. Both Bren and Garry were very responsive to our every need, no matter the request. We eventually found a place and were equally impressed with the team's ability to negotiate and get exactly what we were after. A pleasure to work with from beginning to end!

We met Garry and Brenda Walmsley in 2005 at a convention for buying properties abroad. Looking back we didn't really understand anything about buying a property in America. They arranged to meet up with us when we went out on holiday so that they could show us what was available and help us with the processes involved. That was in December of 2005 and by February 2006 it was all done with not an ounce of pain. Garry went through everything, never pressuring us, leading us through the process and keeping us informed at all points. He was polite, respectful and reassuring. He often went the extra mile and helped us with working out the little things that are very different in America such as the banking system, utilities etc. The service was totally customer facing and it is our pleasure to say that we still keep in contact with Garry and Brenda. We never ever dreamed that we would own a house in Florida, and in truth, we only thought we would 'try' it for 2 years, but here we are nearly 9 years later still really enjoying our second home. We would never hesitate to recommend the service of Garry and Brenda and have already done so many times. All companies should learn from their exceptional customer focus and service.

We have been doing business since 2008 when we purchased our first property in the Orlando area. We had been looking for the "right" home for a few months and had been in touch with a few Realtor's without success when a chance referral led us in their direction. We immediately realized the difference, he listened to what we wanted and spent a lot of time showing us properties and sourcing answers to any questions we had. We were so pleased with the villa we bought and with their expertise and integrity that we bought a further two properties. Not only did they go out of his way to facilitate our search but they went above and beyond, helping us at every available opportunity even after all sales had been finalized. We have recommended them strongly to friends and yet again they has proved to be invaluable to everyone who has contacted them. Anyone looking for a Realtor either to buy OR sell, would be making a very smart decision to choose them. We're really glad we did!

When I first got introduced to Garry I realized that we had a lot in common and he listened intensively in order to understand what we wanted to do and what to buy, Garry chose selective properties that where within both our price range and within the areas that we wanted to buy in. Garry spent a lot of time and effort explaining every step of the process for buying a property in the USA to inexperienced UK first time buyers . He introduced us to the right people, Mortgage specialists, management companies and the like. Brenda took care of the insurance side of things which again smoothed the way for an easy ride. Garry and Brenda’s knowledge and expertise are a credit to themselves and the professionalism that is shown by both, I have passed their details to other potential buyers whom I assume would enjoy the same level of attention to detail would be welcome in such trying times. I intend buying a second property in the near future and would not use any other Realtors.

Having decided to look seriously at investing in an Orlando property, I contacted a number of realtors in the area to help me with my potential purchase. Garry responded very quickly and demonstrated to me that they would act in my best interest without any pressure. Never once was I pushed into making any quick decisions in fact on a number of occasions I was advised that I should not make higher offers on certain properties. I am very pleased to say that Garry & Bren helped me find exactly the type of house I wanted and ensured I did a deal at a fair price. They have been true to every word they stated initially and have taken me through the whole buying process very easily.

From our initial conversations with Garry & Bren to closing on our villa the experience and help we were offered was superb. Having helped us to clarify what we really wanted, they identified a range of properties which fitted our bill to a tee. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone considering investment property or holiday home in a Florida, really great people to deal with and your aspirations at the heart of everything they do for you.

Garry and Brenda guided us through our first Florida home purchase with an ease and courteousness we could not fault. They took time to listen, took time to explain to us the highs and lows we could expect that ownership would entail and then, with much patience (on their part) found us the vacation home that to this day we find hard to believe is ours. We have recommended Garry and Brenda's services to several friends, and each one has come back to us highly satisfied. 

Gary & Julie S - United Kingdom

I would like to say as an English investor in Florida properties, I found the service given to me so useful and the guidance of Garry in the differing legal procedures when buying in Florida. The expert knowledge of the area and the understanding of my request for particular types of properties was excellent. The recommendations of Licensed associates required for this type of investment have all been well received and all of them very helpful. Subsequently having bought another property through Garry and when funds permit will do the same again, and recommend to friends as well.
