Testimonials From Some of Our Happy Sellers
The Merediths from Boulder Colorado.
Sold an income property (duplex) in College Park, Orlando in May 2019. Listing agent Steve Schaffer.
I highly recommend working with Steve at Dolby Properties Inc. We sold our duplex in Orlando from out of state which felt overwhelming and stressful but working with Steve brought peace of mind. He is thorough in his communication and deligent in taking care of all the many details of selling an investment property. Thanks Steve!
Andy & Sue Walker from North Bay Ontario.
Sold in Pinewood Country Estates, Davenport in January 2019. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2013).
We couldn't be happier with our interactions with Steve Schaffer (and Lesley Dolby) of Dolby Properties. We worked with Steve when we purchased our Orlando vacation home in October 2013. We were so satisfied with his knowledge and expertise that we asked him to sell the same property for us this past fall. Sure enough, he pulled through. The home sold very quickly and for slightly more than the listed price. Thank you Steve and Lesley for a successful sale and closing - much appreciated. Sue and Andy
Jason Dukhi from California
Sold in Clermont, January 2019. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2011).
I utilized Dolby Properties to purchase a single family home in 2011 as a real estate investment while living in Canada. Dolby was able to complete the transaction without me ever visiting the property. They also put me in contact with a great Property Manager.
After 7 successful years, I used Dolby Properties to sell my investment. Steve Schaffer was the agent I was assigned to and I couldn’t have been more happier. Steve helped me navigate through some difficult times (roof leak and water damage) due to some severe storms during the listing period. Steve helped me secure a contractor and worked day and night to make sure all repairs were done in a timely and cost effective manner. Steve is an expert negotiator, a great communicator and a pleasure to work with. Steve even rolled up his sleeves and helped clean up my property (what realtor do you know that would actually do this)!!!
Thank you Steve for being such a great partner throughout the entire process.
Sold in Lake Buena Vista Resort, April 2016. Listing agent Samantha Brightman. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2011 and purchased a second property in June 2016).
We were so lucky to find Dolby Properties. It is a great company. When we purchased our first condo in Orlando five years ago we contacted Lesley there who put us in touch with Sam who was amazing.. Sam was very knowledgeable, made us feel confident and was there to help us with everything to do with the purchase. She used her experience and knowledge to give us very good advice on what resorts to look at. It is hard when we live in Canada and we relied on her advice and help very much. She answered any questions promptly and professionally and was so kind and helpful in every way.Just recently within six weeks Sam has sold our first condo and helped us with the purchase of another condo in Orlando. Sam also went to the unit and took a great video of it to show us and she is also taking some pictures of it for us. Dolby properties is a wonderful company that goes the extra mile for its clients. We would not hesitate to recommend Sam and Dolby properties for all your purchasing and selling needs.
Grace & Patrick, Ontario Canada
Sold in Tuscany Preserve, March 2016. Listing agent Samantha Brightman. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2012).
Patrick and I couldn't be happier with our experience with Dolby Properties and, in particular with Sam. She found us a perfect vacation home in 2012 and now 4 years later when we decided to sell Sam exceeded our expectations once again. She is such an amazing person and made the process so easy (both when buying and selling). I can't say enough good things about her. I have recommended you and Sam once again to all my friends and family here in Canada. Thank you so much! Grace and Patrick
The Farquhars, Scotland
Sold in Indian Ridge Oaks, Nov 2015. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2008).
We used Dolby Properties to buy a villa in Kissimmee, and then 7 years later to sell it. On both occasions they gave us first class service. Very professional and above all, trustworthy. We hope Dolby Properties does well in the future. We certainly have found you to be the most professional and trustworthy of all the US companies we've dealt with. A company like that deserves to succeed.
The Sheppard Family, UK
Sold in Westridge, Nov 2015. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2004).
Next time I am over the pond I will check out my itinerary to see if we can get together with you over a “cold one”. Until that time, I thank both you & Lesley on behalf of the Sheppard Clan for all your hard work & diligence & wish you both the best of luck for all future projects.
Kim and Roland Risi, Canada
Sold in Sandy Ridge, Nov 2015. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2012).
Hello Steve and Leslie. Thank you for all your help! We can't believe it sold as fast as it did, and we got our full asking price! There were a few stressful days in there, but all in all a relatively easy process. From our first meeting and our power house hunting trip in 2012 til today's closing, you've been great!
Massimo and Connie, Canada
Sold in Bridgewater at Town Center, May 2015. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2011).
Hello Leslie and Steve. Thank you both for once again providing great service for us. Steve was amazing both when we purchased the home 4 years ago and during the sale of the house this year. Even though we are from Toronto and not able to be down there during the sale process, Steve did a great job keeping us up to date and managed to keep us laughing most of the time as well. I have referred a few people to you already and I will certainly not hesitate to do it again. Making a donation is a great little extra you provide and Connie and I have chosen the ASPCA. We are animal lovers and often open up our rental home to families with dogs.
Thank you again for a quick and seamless sale. We will keep in touch.
Massimo and Connie.
Keith & Ruth Grant, UK
Sold in Florida Pines, July 2014. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2009)
Just wanted to say a big thanks for all your help, advice, guidance on the house sale. Steve didn't do a good job he did a fantastic job! We will pass any referrals along whenever the opportunity presents itself. We both wish Dolby Properties its continued success. Really pleased at what Steve helped us achieve and how he was always on hand to help guide us through any problems. It's also Steve's hands on approach and how he turns problems into solutions that makes him stand out from the crowd.
Phil & Grace Mason, UK
Sold in Sunridge Woods, November 2013. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2003).
We first met Lesley & Steve in 2003 when we were looking to buy a villa in Orlando. Being from the UK, it was a big step and we were very nervous, but they steered us through with a superb knowledge of the housing market and wise advice. They have become good friends, always willing to help and advise. However, after 10 years we decided to sell and had no hesitation to ask Lesley &Steve to market it for us. It was sold very quickly, for a good price and we were steered through to a happy conclusion for both us and the buyers. Lesley & Steve are superb realtors with an integrity and honesty that is rare but, most importantly, they are good people who are a joy to know. We cannot recommend them highly enough.
Bill & Tracy Bell, UK
Sold in Pinewood Country Estates, November 2013. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2003).
We know in the difficult times for sellers that Realtors are having to work hard to sell homes in a very competitive market. Dolby properties have excelled in these difficult times. They are extremely informative, responsive and supportive. They helped us to buy and sell our home. During all that time they never forgot us and periodically made contact to ensure we were in order. We felt we were treated as friends throughout. We would not hesitate in recommending them to other customers.
Richard & Rose Vaughan, UK
Sold in Lindfields, November 2013. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2004)
We were given Steve Schaffer's name ten years ago from a friend who recommended him for his services. We contacted him and he helped when we were looking for our property in Kissimmee and he guided us through the procedures relating to buying a Florida home. Hence nearly ten years on we were selling our home in Kissimmee, it was only natural we should contact Steve Schaffer again. We feel he is efficient, competent, reliable, proactive, goes the extra mile and above all honest. We would have no hesitation in referring him to any of our friends if they were interested in buying a property in America. He made our lives a lot easier and took off much of the pressure.
If were to come back to Florida to buy another home again we would have no hesitation in contacting Steve Schaffer of Dolby Properties Inc.
Ken & Edwina Berry, UK
Sold in Indian Ridge, April 2013. Listing agent Steve Schaffer.
We recently sold our house thro' Dolby Properties who managed the whole
thing very well and took a lot of the pressure of selling off us.
From our very first meeting with Steve Shafer when he fully explained the selling process we had the confidence to proceed and the video presentation, taken by Steve and put on the web by Lesley within a day or so of taking instructions confirmed to us their professionalism and that our decision to allow them to act for us was the correct one. Whilst the sale took a total of five months to close, the house was only marketed for something under four weeks, which in this economic climate was, we feel, very good.
In our absence, we are British, Steve took care of just about everything contacting us by phone or email when a decision or action was required by us. When it was needed Lesley and Steve went that extra mile to ensure that we got the price we wanted and we could not recommend them highly enough.
If you have a house to sell then seriously look at Dolby Properties, you will not be disappointed.
Holly Moore, UK
Sold in Lake Burden, Windermere, April 2013. Listing agent Steve Schaffer.
I couldn’t recommend Steve enough to any potential sellers. He was fantastically pro-active and helpful and took the time to explain the relevant process to me as it is somewhat un-familiar being a foreign national. Steve was always available to talk when I needed and gave me great advice about the right approach to take. He was in daily communication with potential buyer’s agent and sold my house within 6 weeks – you can’t ask for better than that! Above all that he was friendly, supportive and helped take some of the stress out of the whole situation – thank you Steve!
Sandy & Doug McClean, UK
Sold in Calabay Parc June 2012. Listing agent Sam Brightman. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2008)
Samantha Brightman of Dolby Properties came recommended to us by another British couple and we subsequently engaged her to help us find and purchase a property for rental in the Orlando area. We were delighted with the service she provided especially as the transaction was conducted at a distance. We stayed in touch over the years and when the time came to sell we were pleased to ask Sam to help us again. We found Dolby Properties and Sam in particular to be friendly, helpful but most of all, professional in handling our real estate needs. We have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone wishing to buy or sell property in the Orlando area.
Sold in Indian Creek April 2012. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2005)
I had used Dolby Properties before when I purchased my villa back in 2005 and they did an excellent job then, so I decided to go with them for the sale of my property. I could not be happier with my decision. Both Lesley and Steve Schaffer helped me step by step through the process, keeping me constantly informed. Steve especially worked hard for me above and beyond what I expected. He visited the property on a number of occasions to check that all was well and even did a few little jobs to tidy up and make the property well presentable for viewing. The offer, negotiation and closing procedure can be difficult and fraught with problems. Steve and Lesley offered excellent advice and explained things simply for me. Even though I live I the UK, communication was constant with emails back and forth. They kept in control of all events along the way and dealt with the title company and my villa management company. Most documents could be signed securely online.
I would recommend them to anybody for the following main reasons:- 1) They are realistic about the price you can expect to achieve for your property. They will not advise you to ask some rediculously high price just to make more money. A realistic value will help get you a quicker sale. 2) They help and advise on every aspect and step of the way. 3) They are extremely friendly. Although I never actually got to meet either Lesley or Steve, I feel that they have become friends of mine and I hope to keep in contact with them long after the sale of my property. And, that leads to the final and most important reason for using Dolby Properties 4) They sold my property for me with the whole process of going on the market through to closing taking no more than four and a half months. Thanks Lesley and Steve.
The Taylors, UK
Sold in Aster Cove at Crescent Lakes in February 2012. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2004)
1) Steve and Lesley have succeeded in selling my property in Florida despite having to deal with a very difficult sellers (i.e. myself and my ex wife) who were unable to agree on virtually every aspect of the sale and a stagnant marketplace. Notwithstanding these difficulties both Steve and Lesley continued to work extremely hard and very professionally to secure a sale when I am sure it would have been easier to politely suggest that I find alternative Realtors in order that they could have an easier life. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is looking to sell their villa. Dolby Properties also acted in the purchase of the property (which, in the absence of any disagreements, was a much less difficult process) and would give the same wholehearted recommendation of their services in purchasing a property. Paul Taylor
2) Hi Lesley and Steve, just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for all you have done for Paul and I. It is such a relief that the villa is finally sold and I know that would not have been possible without your help, support and advice. At all times you have both acted with professionalism, and I fully appreciate at times we must have been "the clients from hell!" with our acrimonious divorce, despite this you managed to steer us to agreement and achieve a sale at a good price. Steve on numerous occassions went far above what any estate agent would have done in the UK, without that support I doubt we would have easily achieved a sale and probably would still be in dispute.
I would not hesitate to recommend your services. Thanks again for all you have done. Kind Regards, Nikki
The Hughes, UK
Sold in Indian Ridge December 2011. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2005)
We have known Lesley & Steve of Dolby Properties since 2005, when we decided to buy a property in Florida, they came up with the goods, and we completed the purchase very quickly. In October 2011 we decided due to health reasons we would have to sell the home we had in Florida. We turned to Dolby Properties again and between us leaving Florida on 4th November 2011 and 21st December 2011 Steve had marketed & sold & completed the sale of our home. Lesley & Steve are lovely people and true honest friends and have done more than asked to help us, we are fortunate to have been friends. We would recommend their services to anyone that asks. Sadly Pauline has passed on to better life, but remains in our minds & hearts.
Sold in Eagle Pointe June 2011. Listing agent Sam Brightman. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties in 2005)
It's been a stressful 18 months after losing our business in the UK then the added pressure in the US although I must add that without Sam I don't think we could have done it. From start to finish she's been around for us communicating via email and phone I can honestly say she's been brilliant. The thought of losing the house via foreclosure did scare us but I'm so happy that you (Dolby Properties)(Sam Brightman) have made it easier. Once again can you please thank your staff in particular Sam not just for being our agent but for listening and being there for us!!!!
Pam & Duncan Kennett-Wise, UK
Sold in Calabay Parc September 2010. Listing agent Steve Schaffer
We will be e.mailing our homeowner groups to let them know that we have sold and that we were immensely impressed by Steve's utter professionalism, his pleasant manner and the fact that he always kept us informed by e.mail only minutes after viewings and later on negotiations. All in all, we could not have wished for a better Realtor than Steve.
The Pattricks, UK
Sold in Manors of Westridge April 2010. Listing agent Steve Schaffer.
Lesley & Steve have been extremely helpful and supportive in selling
our vacation rental home, near Disney. Due to ill health we were unable to
return to Fl from the UK and everything went very smoothly regarding
communication (emails were always answered without delay) and handling all the
paperwork long distance was very easy for us - scanning completed forms via
email attachment, apart from the notarised forms which travelled by Fed EX
courier via the title company's own account.
Thanks again for making everything stress free - which we greatly appreciated. We have no hesitation in recommending Lesley & Dolby Properties Inc.
Tricia Swan, Scotland
Sold in Lindfields Dec 2009. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties July 2004)
I first bought a vacation home 5 years ago through Dolby Properties. Unfortunately, I had to sell that property last year, and Steve and Lesley were both very helpful and very much on hand to deal with all hiccups along the way! I know it was not the best time to sell, but they managed to negotiate a sale on my behalf. A great professional company with the personal touch, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dolby Properties Inc to anyone looking to purchase in the US.
The Hunters, UK
Sold in Lake Davenport Estates Dec 2009. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties Dec 2004)
We were impressed with Dolby Properties when we originally purchased our Florida home in 2004. They were efficient and prepared to spend time in finding exactly the right property to suit our needs. When it was time to sell their efficient helpful service came into its own again as we sold our property within approximately 6 weeks of it going onto the market. With their helpful suggestions and knowledge of the local market we were able to achieve the quick viable sale that we required. They were able to meet our remit completely and with their proactive, polite and efficient knowledge of the property market we have no hesitation in recommending them to further clients who wish to buy or sell property in the areas that they service. We wish them all the very best for the future.
The Doyles, UK
Sold in Sunridge Woods Nov 2009. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties Sept 2007)
We first came across Dolby Properties when we were looking to buy in the US. We did a lot of internet research and they impressed us. It was only natural to turn to them when we decided to sell our property. We were impressed by both Lesley and her team's professionalism. They kept us in touch with developments at all times and were pro-active in their advice. Results count, and Lesley helped us sell our house in a difficult market. We would recommend Dolby Properties to anyone looking to buy or sell, if they want a personable and professional approach.
The Hayhursts, UK
Sold in Fairways Lake Estates Sept 2009. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties May 2004)
I first worked with Dolby Properties over 5 years ago to buy a vacation home in Florida. This was on recommendation from a friend. I went back to Dolby Properties this year, once I had decided to sell the vacation home and even though it was not a good time to sell, they successfully negotiated a sale on my behalf. Dolby Properties are very committed and enthusiastic company and I would have no hesitation in recommending them as realtors.
Alan & Joan Burgess, UK
Sold in Manors of Westridge July 2009. Listing agent Steve Schaffer.
We engaged Dolby Properties to sell our villa when the market was particularly bad and did not have too high an expectation of getting a buyer very quickly. After only about 10 weeks Steve notified us that he had got a buyer for the property at the asking price. We quickly completed the sale agreement documents as we were leaving on a cruise a few days later. While we were away enjoying ourselves Steve took care of everything for us and arranged for jobs to be done at the property. He even took care of the final removal of our personal property as we were unable to get back to the USA to do this ourselves.
Dolby Properties' service was second to none and they made the selling process go smoothly and successfully for us. We have no hestation in recommending them to any prospective seller as they offer a standard of personal attention and care that few other Companies could compete with.
The Staintons, Ponte Vedra, FL
Sold in Manors of Westridge July 2009. Listing agent Steve Schaffer. (Also purchased through Dolby Properties Nov 2007)
We would to say how wonderful Lesley Dolby of Dolby Properties, and also thank Steve Schaffer for the smooth transaction and process of selling our property in Orlando. From start to finish we were kept up to date no matter what time of the day it was and everyone was so cheery, a pleasure to talk to, and excellent advice was given throughout the complex process making it very easy for us. We would highly recommend Dolby Properties without hesitation to anyone considering buying or selling a property in the Orlando area.
Stan Oakey, UK
Sold in Tuscan Ridge June 2009. Listing agent Steve Schaffer.
Steve - Many thanks for the advice & very professional help we have had from yourself & Dolby Properties whilst selling our property, without you I think the transaction would not have gone so smoothly Again many thanks - you are appreciated!!
Anne Roberts-Hunt, UK
Sold in Calabay Parc August 2008. Listing agent Sam Brightman.
It was with great sadness that following the passing of my husband, I and my family decided to sell our Florida home at Calabay Parc. We are members of the Calabay Yahoo group and I asked other members if they could recommend an agent. I selected 3 agents and Sam Brightman from Dolby Properties was the second agent to appraise the property. I immediately warmed to her lovely friendly bubbly personality and how she professionally represented the company she worked for. She said at once "I have a buyer for your property" and I thought to myself "I've heard that before!! However she obviously knew the requirements of her buyer and rang me back less than 24 hours after with an acceptable offer from a cash buyer. Sam was very sympathetic to my situation and handled everything very efficiently for me keeping me informed throughout. I was able to have the survey done and sign the contract before returning to the UK and completed on the sale without delay.
Sam - I wish you continued good luck in your career and Lesley for your business. Thanks once again for all your help.
Gary Krieg, South Dakota
Sold in Indian Creek June 2008. Listing agent Steve Schaffer.
Steve, the email I just received regarding your analysis of the selling price that we got for our home, after the home has already sold and closed, is a perfect example of the lengths that you will go to to support your customers. Most agents would have assumed that since the house was already sold that no further communication was necessary. You, on the other hand, did not see the end of your job being the sale and closing of the house, you went the extra step and provided us with some additional analysis of the home prices in the area.
Since we did not live in the house, we were actually several thousand miles away, your attention to detail and your willingness to keep a watchful eye on our property was invaluable. We had an agent previous to you and they never once alerted me to any issue concerning the care and presentation of the house. Numerous times throughout the listing you alerted us to potentially harmful property issues, which allowed us to make sure that they were corrected. We have sold many homes in our lives and you are, by far, the hardest working real estate agent I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Your willingness to do whatever it took to sell the house was second to none. I believe that if it had not been for you, the house would still be on the market. A very very satisfied customer!
The Campbells, UK
Sold in Sunset Lakes September 2007. Listing agent Sam Brightman (also purchased through Dolby Properties Jan 2004).
Sam and Lesley, we both thank you sincerely for your professionalism at all times making our house-buying and selling experiences in Florida an easy process both to understand and to execute. I would not hesitate to recommend Dolby Properties for a considerate and personal service with extra special thanks to Sam who was with us every step of the way. I've been especially impressed with Sam's perception of current market trends and how nothing, however trivial, was too much for her. Sam we have really appreciated your competence, advice and kind manner and wish you every success in your future business dealings. Once again many thanks.
The Cowells, UK
Sold property in Hampton Lakes - August 2007 (also purchased through Dolby Properties Feb 2006). Listing agent Steve Schaffer.
We started looking at buying a property in Florida about 4 years ago, which is when Dolby Properties first came to our attention. Their help, advice and guidance was invaluable, despite the fact that we were not in a position to go ahead with a purchase initially. When we were ready to take the plunge and buy a property over in Davenport, we received regular notification from Dolby Properties of villas on the market and went over to Florida to view a selection in December, 2005. It was in this selection that we found a beautiful 3 bedroom pool home that we immediately fell in love with. Dolby Properties saw us through every step of the buying process and the villa became ours at the during February, 2006.
It was to Dolby Properties that we once again turned when we took the decision to sell the villa in order to release money to renovate a property we had just bought back here in the UK. As is well documented the market over in the States at the moment is struggling and very much a case of very few buyers getting the pick of thousands of properties. However, Dolby managed to find a buyer for our property and liaised with all concerned to ensure that the whole process went smoothly. In fact from agreement of offer to closing date was only about 3 weeks.....try doing that in the UK!!!! When, not if, we buy another property over in Florida, we will certainly use Dolby Properties again and we would have no hesitation in recommending that if anyone intends buying property in Florida they make sure they use the exemplary services of Dolby Properties.
Dean & Sian McConnon,UK
Sold in Pinewood Country Estates, Davenport, in June 2007. Listing Agent - Michelle Baydemir. Also purchased through Dolby Properties in June 2006.
When we decided to sell our property in Orlando we feared the worst and got prepared for a stressful time ahead. Michelle was put in charge of our case and from the start I knew she would kick things in to shape ! Being 3000 miles away and with the 5 hour time difference we also felt that we would miss crucial information and not be able to act on it - in an instant. All our fears and stresses did not materialize and from start to finish Michelle was very professional and kept us informed on everything that was going on across the Atlantic. I would highly recommend Dolby Properties as their dedication and commitment is 100% Many Thanks Michelle & Dolby Properties !
The Barkers, UK
Sold in Southern Dunes, July 2007. Listing Agent - Sam Brightman.
Firstly Chris and I cannot thank you enough on the way you handled the sale of our property being here in England we would have expected that to pose problems but, you made sure that did not happen keeping us informed at all stages (including keeping our Son posted when we were on holiday now that's commitment for you and we thank you). As you know because of the way the market has been you have provided us with sound and logical advice whenever we have asked for it and provided us with information to help us make our choices. We always felt comfortable in the knowledge that you were doing your utmost to ensure our property was being shown to its full potential, checking the property when you were in the area, and keeping us informed when things were not quite right, which enabled us to contact our management company, How many other realtors do that I wonder?
We would recommend anyone wanting to sell their property use your services especially owners from abroad because you need the constant contact that you give when you are not around to check things for yourself in person. On the speed of the completion of the sale WOW how quick was that and again the input you had keeping us up to speed once more THANK YOU! Last but by no means least it was a pleasure meeting you, sharing a donut and cool drink, we wish you every success in the future and we will be phoning when we come back to Florida so wait for the call......
Gill & Dave Rea, UK
Sold in the Sanctuary at Westhaven, Davenport in June 2004 (also purchased through Dolby Properties in November 2003). Listing agent - Steve Schaffer.
We bought and sold our property with Dolby Properties, who at all times were very professional in their approach and always kept us informed of what was going on. Unfortunately we had to sell our property soon after buying it, for personal reasons and Lesley and Steve sold our property within 24 hours of it going on the market and even got us more money than we expected. Lesley and Steve definitely give you the personal approach and always reply to your questions, no matter how small, very quickly.
Mike & Sue Gardner, UK
Sold in Lake Davenport Estates in August 2004 (also purchased through Dolby Properties in August 2002). Listing agent - Steve Schaffer.
Lesley and Steve of Dolby Properties have asked if we would be prepared to share our experience of buying/selling through Dolby Properties. We were only too pleased as we bought through them, knowing little of the U.S. property market. Having gained greater knowledge we now know how important it is to buy and sell through people you can trust, as there are pitfalls when buying in an unfamiliar market. You can be sure that your interests will be at the forefront of their minds everyday until the deal is done and thereafter always available to advise and assist. They have become friends and people that we know and would always trust implicitly.
Ian & Anne North, UK
Sold in Southern Dunes, January 2004. Listing Agent - Dave Baker.
I'm happy to provide a few words as a testimonial. We found you to be quick and reliable and you always worked hard for us, to get us the result we wanted. We never felt that we were on our own, and you always responded quickly to our requests, either by phone or e-mail. A good professional service.
Justin & Delease Palmer, Lanzarote, Spain
Sold property in Southern Dunes in December 2004 (Listing Agents Dave and Jody Baker), also purchased through Dolby Properties in January 2004.
Hi Lesley, Justin and I would like to take a moment to express how thankful we are to Dolby Properties, in particular Dave Baker who has nurtured us through both the buying and selling of our property in Florida. What a fantastic, professional and smoothly guided service we have experienced throughout both our dealings with Dolby Properties. Your continuous support and guidance has been second to none, and we truly very happy to recommend your services to any prospective clients. Once again please accept a huge thank you for the exceptional work you did for us.
Andrew & Sharon White, UK
Sold in Southern Dunes - November 2005. Listing Agent Sam Brightman.
We would like to thank Sam, Amy and all at Dolby Properties for helping us sell our property on Southern Dunes. If the buyers agents were as good as you we could have settled months ago, but still it was all stress free and we were constantly kept up to date on the progress of the sale.
Dai & Morag Griffiths, Scotland
Sold in Loma Linda December 2005 - listing agent Sam Brightman. Also purchased through Dolby Properties in January 2004.
Although the situation did not develop the way we had intended when we bought the property, it has proved to be a good investment and a happy experience. We can now proceed with alternative plans that involve travel more within the limitations of my health. VERY MANY THANKS to you for the capable way you handled matters, both at the purchase and sales processes. Although we have not had the pleasure of meeting face to face, we feel that we have had a very friendly experience throughout.
