We were interested in looking at, and possibly investing in, rental properties in the Central Florida area. Brian, from Sparrow Realty Group, agreed to give us a bit of background, show us around the different areas and provide both real working examples of homes managed and those that were currently for sale that he and his team could help us get in to and provide on-going support.
We had given Brian and his team a pretty tight timeframe to work with and a general idea of what we wanted during a recent visit to the central Florida region. He was able to have a few conversations with us beforehand to hone in on exactly what would be the best approach for the time we had given him.
Right away it was clear that Brian had put a lot of thought and time in to preparing for our visit. He was extremely organized and knew exactly the approach that would suit us. He was flexible with timing when we wanted to focus in more at some properties but overall knew best how to pace the afternoon so it was a pleasant experience for us.
When we arrived at the scheduled time he had prepared a couple of packets of information that we were able to refer to throughout the afternoon. These were also quite useful after the day to refer back to and use for notes, etc. He had worked up some figures of where different properties could go in terms of on-going costs, mortgages, taxes, etc so it was nice not to have to do this in my head and instead have it in front of us as we were traveling along. In addition during the entire time he was able to provide us with information on the area, past trends, current developments and expected changes for the area, city and region that were/are important in decision making for buying a property.
Brian took us around to show us various properties and answering our questions on tenancy, buying and repairs/maintenance of the properties. He has many, many years of real world experience at all ends of the spectrum (specifically to property) and this is so very valuable when it came to me first inquiring with him about the properties.
The day went extremely smoothly thanks to Brian’s planning and impeccable timing. We obtained the information we wanted and Brian provided a very value added afternoon of information that we could have not obtained on our own and I doubt we could have received through another company in the time and manner we had requested.
I can without hesitation say that Brian and his group have the highest level of integrity that I have ever dealt with in this industry. I would, without a doubt, trust him to give me honest and candid advice that I could use to make good decisions. He has so many years of real world experience that to be able to have him at least as a resource; and at most as my real estate manager, real estate agent or anything else to do with real estate, goes without saying.
I would highly, highly recommend Brian and his group at Sparrow Realty. I used to work in the industry over a decade ago and have dealt with countless individuals, companies and others and I can ‘hands down’ say that Brian is the one individual/group that I would use time and time again over anyone else. I have sent my parents through him and I would send other family members and any friends to him if they needed the services of his company in Florida.
Thank you Brian and Sparrow Realty Group. You truly are heads and shoulders above the rest. I hope anyone reading this will give your company a try as I know they won’t be disappointed. Thank you for your time in September on my whirlwind trip through the city and I hope to be in contact soon.
