This is the second time I have used John & Lisa Lowe as my realtors. They helped me buy my home in Tampa a few years ago and I recently decided to take a job in Sarasota. I needed to sell my home quickly in order to relocate and get my kids settled into their new schools. John and Lisa got my home staged & professionally photographed right away and they showed me how their marketing would bring me an offer quickly. Bottom line, my home was only on the market for 7 days and they made everything very easy all the way up to the closing. After having used John Lowe Group twice I can say they consistently give a 5 star experience.

We met John after we called him to see a home he was marketing for sale and we decided to ask him to help us find our next home. John showed us several properties and we are grateful we met him because he prevented us from making a big purchasing mistake when we started to focus in on a particular home.
During this time we were also trying to market our own house "For Sale By Owner". There was very little interest and we did not get a single offer.
We were eager to get moved into a better property for our family so we asked John to market our home for us. John explained several things we could do to market our home more effectively and provided a home staging consultation. He spent a lot of time and effort to get the photos of our home just right. His photos absolutely showed our home in it best light. As a home buyer I looked at a lot of homes online and I can say there is a huge difference in how agents market homes on the internet.
Within 3 days of John putting our home on the market we had 4 showings with potential buyers and we accepted an offer from one of them.
We have worked with several real estate agents over the years and would recommend John to our friends and family.

We had been renting our house for several years when our landlord notified us that he wanted to cash out and would not be renewing our lease. The landlord did offer to sell to us so we decided to check out the real estate market and compare our options before deciding what to do next. That is how we met John Lowe. We called him about a house with his yardsign out front but he sold it already. When John found out our landlord offered to sell to us he suggested we hire him as a buyer’s agent to purchase the home we were renting. We had not considered hiring a real estate agent to negotiate with our landlord and we are so happy that we did. John explained all the paperwork, wrote the offer for us, and presented it to the landlord. He also referred us to a title company that handled the closing. And he coordinated with the landlord, who is out of state, to make sure everything closed on time. We were able to get a good deal on a great house in a hot market without having to compete with any other buyers. We also didn’t have the expense and hassle of packing and moving. And our kids didn’t have to change schools. It is not every day that you come across a real estate agent like John Lowe. Most agents would have tried to convince us to move in order to generate a big commission check. John took great care us for a very reasonable fee. If you are thinking about buying a home then contact John. He is a real estate expert you can count on to handle all the details and be your advocate.

I am from Chicago and I was looking for a vacation home in the Redington Beach area. The market for these homes is very competitive so when one came on the market John and I arranged to meet there right away. Sure enough there were multiple offers and John was able guide me through the process and help me structure the winning offer. John also made sure the seller installed a brand new water heater before we took possession. If you are looking to purchase a vacation home on the beach and want help from someone who you can trust then call John Lowe.

I spent several years traveling the United States and decided I wanted to make my home in Seminole near my daughter. I had just started my home search when I met John Lowe and he showed me a condo that was perfect for me. It was right in the heart of Seminole, near everything, yet in a very quiet water front community. John helped me get all the offer paperwork completed promptly and helped me negotiate a really good price. After that he introduced me to a lender who got my financing done quickly and easily with a good interest rate. During the home inspection there was a minor problem discovered and John stepped in immediately to get it resolved. He met with the condo association to ensure everything would be repaired and paid for by the association before I moved in. I am so glad I didn't have to hassle with it. He really took care of me when it came to negotiating the offer and making sure all the details were handled. I am really grateful that I had John on my side during the whole process of buying a new home.

My husband and I were eager to purchase a condo in a specific neighborhood. We had been watching the market for quite some time when the perfect unit became available. We knew we had to act fast because the unit was competitively priced and in a great location. When we contacted John he met us right away and explained a strategy to get our offer accepted over other buyers we might be competing with. He also explained the paperwork and got our offer submitted immediately. Thanks to John we were able to buy the exact home we wanted.

I was very eager to purchase a new home and I was working with a real estate agent that just couldn't help me get the job done. She had problems with availability and didn't seem to share my sense of urgency. I called John Lowe because I drove by one of his listings and saw his sign in front of the property. He scheduled a meeting with me immediately. He showed me his system of finding homes that fit what I was looking for and after viewing a few we found the right one. John helped me negotiate a good price and also negotiated a $750 seller contribution towards my closing costs. It was great to have a Realtor who was responsive, knowledgeable, and understood my needs. I would highly recommend John Lowe!
