Roger enabled us to sell our turn key furnished Beachplace condo in two days (we have owned it for more than 20 years; never rented it and used it for only 4 months each year). We received a final price that was higher than the suggested asking price from other agents. We originally contacted the four offices that send regular newsletters on Beachplace sales and Roger responded immediately and was the most knowledgeable in my experience. When Roger's suggested asking price was considerably higher than others I asked him to respond to the reasons others had given for a lower estimate. He noted that ours would be the only penthouse for sale and that given other recent sales he convinced me to go with his suggestion. He responded quickly to my e-mails throughout the process (faster than others) and he and his team did an outstanding job in staging, photographing and listing the unit and we closed with an all cash deal in 7 weeks. His staff (especially Barbara Bourn) were equally efficient and responsive. Barbara met with my daughter and me on a Sunday Morning as we were only there for the week end to sort out our personal belongings. She also arranged to ship the things we needed (all arrived safely) and to dispose of other items. She selected and worked with various service people to deal with a number of - mostly minor - inspection issues. She is a gem! The closing went smoothly on schedule, the funds arrived over night, and the next morning we got a plant from Roger!

If you are selling your unit Roger will review all past sales to establish the correct listing price for your property. Roger has a fantastic team working with him. They let you know when your property is being shown and update you after the showing and give you detail items information on how the showing went. Barbara, Stephanie and Bruce (Roger’s team) were Fantastic with coordinating all functions required to close the deal including the final walk through from the buyer and making sure all repair items satisfied on the buy and sell. I couldn’t be more satisfied with Roger on the sale of my property and the purchase of another property on Longboat Key. I will recommend Roger to anyone doing business in Longboat Key and the Sarasota area.

From the beginning of our relationship with Roger and his team, we found that he knew the market and his advise on listing price was accurate. After the initial listing, Roger only brought potential buyers who were seriously interested and had the financial ability to actually purchase. From the initial photography, both inside and by drone above, Roger's marketing of our property was exceptional and we did not lack for showings. After a short period and when we received offers, Roger's advise was extremely helpful in order to optimize our sales price. The bottom line is, we would definitely use Roger and his team again.

Rogers operation is very efficient in selling your home. From the beginning he and his staff are with you at all times, answering questions and making the process of selling ones home less stressful. From the say we signed the contract, to the staging and advertising our property is tool one week to sell at the price he suggested. His staff is very knowledgeable in many areas, when we had some furniture to sell, they connected us to community organization to purchase the items we were not taking with us. They helped us find a mover to not only move our furniture but our cars. I have no hesitation in recommend Roger's agency in helping you sell your property.

Roger and his team did an excellent job marketing and selling my home in Bird Key. The home was quite unique and hence would have appealed to a much smaller cross section of buyers. Despite this, Roger worked hard to ensure it was marketed well and I would like to think both parties were happy with the result. Roger also has super responsive people working for him. Barbara and others always responded quickly to any of my questions and overall they are all a class act. If I sell my next home in Sarasota there is no doubt it will also be sold by Roger. You just cannot get anyone better.

Roger’s deep knowledge of the market and his perfect instincts about what's possible and what's not make him the perfect partner in a decision to buy or sell a house. Twice he's named the price (both times leading the market) and twice brought in the perfect buyer, one showing, one full price offer and lots of support throughout the process. When we were looking to buy, Roger showed us just what we were looking for before the listing was complete. And supported us through the buying process. Always available, always delightful (as is his whole team) and always with the right way to get the job done well.
– Flinn | Seller
Roger and his group were highly recommended to us when we decided to look for a home in Florida. His reputation for working with multi-million dollar transactions could have been intimidating, but his character, communication, dedication to our personal goals and his knowledge for the market quickly solidified we made the right choice. In fact, Roger exceeded our expectations. Once the transaction was complete, Roger did not walk away. He has followed up with us on several occasions and is super helpful as we familiarize ourselves with our new home!
– Betsy W. F. | Buyer
Every buyer he brought to house made offer. All calls were returned immediately. His staff were wonderful each and every one. House was always locked and secure after each showing. They always made it easy for me to have plenty of time for showing. I was never rushed and their main priority was my schedule. It was great dealing with Roger. Arrangements for closings were easy and right on time. I would highly recommend Roger and his staff.
– Virginia R. | Buyer
Roger Pettingell comes across immediately as professional and personal. After viewing our home and talking with us about our needs, he immediately presented a plan to sell our property at a price that was ultimately more than acceptable to us as the sellers with minimal intrusions upon our privacy. After the closing, he was still available to meet any further needs. In six months, Roger has become much more than our real estate agent, he has become our friend!
– Mary Lou W. | Seller
We had a very good experience with Roger. We were pleased he was able to sell the condo so quickly after he took over from the previous agent. The sale price was lower than we had hoped for, but decided to accept it as it saved us from paying future costs associated with the property. Roger’s suggestion not to stage the condo, but sell it without furnishings worked well.
He explained things to us and made the whole experience as smooth as could be.
– Doug & Robin B. | Seller
Roger is the ultimate professional. He knows the Sarasota real estate market better than anyone. He and his very capable staff work closely with you to make sure that your house presents well and is appealing to buyers. Roger was personally involved in all showings and discussions with prospective buyers. He is on top of his game, a pleasure to with and sold our house in two days for above asking price. We could not have been more satisfied.
– Kathy A. | Seller
As Location, location, location is often the mantra for many in the real estate industry, we'd say that professional, professional, professional is the mantra for Roger. His up-to-date knowledge on the market, trends, and accuracy of the psychology of the buyer and seller is second to none. Roger was more than attentive and we appreciate his candor and setting of realistic expectations all done with the utmost grace and poise.
– Poppy S. | Seller
Roger is extremely knowledgeable and has a team of professionals that make buying or selling your home a great experience. I have purchased two properties, and sold one with Roger and I could not have been more satisfied with our partnership. Market expertise, and guidance throughout the process is second to none...and the proof is in the RESULTS. I will use Roger and his team whenever I make a real estate transaction.
– Mike L. | Seller
Roger and his team (Mary Kay in particular) were incredibly helpful! Roger was available whenever needed and he provided great guidance and advice throughout the process. His team made the closing and transition process incredibly smooth!
We have purchased many properties and the professionalism and expertise expressed through this process was by far the best!
– Phil G. | Buyer
Roger was professional yet personally interested in us and our desires about selling our home. His group was always available for us and able to answer our questions. He was persistent in exposing our home to as many buyers as possible. He added personal touches like the "Corona Virus" gift to lighten our spirits during a difficult time.
– Scott & Peg M. | Seller
They were a cohesive whole working in lockstep to communicate day and night with us. Each person in his office knew their field of expertise, were patient with us and brought a dose of joy into this otherwise stressful process. A pleasure to know and count on. They got it done!
– Pat P. | Seller
I was satisfied with the business relationship, the only issue I had developed when the cash payment on the sale changed to a financing purchase which extended the closing, until I raised the flag to get additional earnest funds the original small dollar deposit was not changed.
– Bernard R. | Seller
Very experienced, good knowledge of market, good advertising and promotion. Only disappointment was the staging exercise. Having to buy the staged furniture and then dispose of it was disheartening. Would rather have had another choice on staging.
– Rose P. | Seller
From the first meeting until the closing Roger and his team did an outstanding job of preparing my home for sale, marketing my property, and keeping me informed after each inquiry/showing. A Great Experience.
