What Tampa Home Group’s Clients Are Saying About Their Stellar Service
John, Maria and Tania are true pros and they guided us through a fairly complex process of buying and selling our house. John is an excellent negotiator and was just my style. Maria is excellent with the complex process of closing deals and Tania is a wonderful agent always willing to show homes and answer our questions. Thank-you for everything!
John and Maria are fantastic real estate professionals. Anyone will be hard pressed to find a better team to represent their real estate interests in the Tampa area.
The entire team that John and Maria have are great. A big win was achieved for my wife and I when our house was sold in less than 3 weeks after listing it with Team Hoffman. Lynn R. with Team Hoffman was quite helpful, patient and professional with us during the entire process and went above and beyond to help us. If you are planning on buying or selling, it may be well worth your time to meet with Maria/John before you decide on another agent.
We were referred to John and Maria after our realtor in a different market looked up their sales record and conversion statistics. Then we met with John in our 5 year old home we were listing, to get a feel for process, ask questions etc. Our home shows like a model and he said so. The toughest challenge was, we had really over improved the home and while we knew we wouldn’t get all of our dollars for improvements out, our goal was that of any seller, get the most we could. We spent a lot of time in his office going over comps and trying to price the house very realistically. Ultimately, we had a full price offer in less than 24 hours. It was a combination of proper pricing, thorough staging, and their professional photography. John also was a stickler on the contract items and negotiations. There were so many small things in the contract that he paid attention to, from strict proof of financing, to timing. John and Maria’s team was in contact with us through every step, from showings (we only had to have a few since the sale was so fast), to contract completion, inspection. You could argue that a full price offer the first day would tempt you to wonder if you couldn’t have priced it higher. But then, perhaps that offer would never have come in the first place. It’s all of the market knowledge that John and Maria brought to the table that gave us the confidence to pick our price.
John and Maria and their assistants are great. We’re moving from the west coast to Tampa and in just one trip they helped us find a home in a gated golf community and we’ve already closed.
They are total professionals and I was especially impressed with how they gave honest pros and cons about each house we looked at in all aspects including value and then handled the negotiation process really well and then they and their team made the closing really quick, smooth and painless.
Very nice people too, but I can’t say enough about their professionalism. They have it very much together.
Maria and her team did an excellent job in facilitating the purchase of our home. They went above and beyond what was expected and provided very timely responses to all our inquiries. I highly recommend them for any of your real estate needs. Outstanding professionals!
Maria had me at “hello”…we had just taken our house off the market for the holidays when she called me on my expired listing and convinced me this was the best time to sell. She was right, we had many showings over the holidays and then her team presented us an acceptable contract. Maria, John and the team kept us fully communicated to during the entire process.
Always available, very knowledgeable, had our best interest in mind, accommodating, etc. They came highly recommended by someone extremely versed in all facets of real estate and lived up to it. We highly recommend their services!
We had first class help through our whole process, no question too small, and she was our advocate with each step. We are now happy, new home owners and so appreciative of Tania Borelli of John and Maria Hoffman, Realtors.
I needed to purchase a home with a short visit. The first visit did not produce a home which suited my needs. My agent from John & Maria’s team (Tania B) continued to work with me long distance. On my second trip I found several homes that could have worked for me. They assisted me in presenting a fair offer and I have since closed on my new home. I would definitely use this team again and also highly recommend them.
Working with John was a wonderful experience. John was extremely knowledgable about the current market and how we could properly market our home. They made recommendations on repairs, preparations and listing the home. We would recommend John to anyone thinking about selling their home.
From the initial meeting to the closing, absolutely outstanding. Extremely professional, sensitive to our needs and wants, and respectful of our time. We had our home listed with another agent first for 6 months and had only 3-4 visits and no offers. John and Maria called requested a meeting and informed us they could sell our home with no problems. With a little hesitancy and trepidation my wife and I decided to switch realtors and give John and Maria an opportunity mostly because of the confidence and knowledge they had of the market. After the first week of listing, we had several appointments to view our home(more than we got in the 6 months with the other agent) . After about 2-3 weeks we had our first offer and we couldn’t believe it. The buyers had some trouble selling their home and couldn’t obtain financing so we had to put our house back on the market. John and Maria didn’t miss a step and with an unwavered faith told us not to worry put the house back on the market and we had another offer in a matter of weeks! They walked us through an easy closing, again cognizant of our time, and we closed quickly. My wife and I will definitely have John and Maria assisting us on the purchase of our next home and maybe even the sell of that one as well. I will wholeheartedly recommend John and Maria Hoffman to anyone I know (and don’t know) looking for compassionate, professional, and responsive agents.
Maria and John were professional, hard-working, and made it a priority to get my house sold. My only regret was that I didn’t find them much earlier in the process. After three months of trying to sell my house by owner, and then another seven months with another realtor, I was discouraged. Maria and John sold my house in two months! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a results-oriented realtor.
We had a great experience. My wife and I were expecting our second child and John & Maria did everything they could to accommodate our tight timeline. We were lucky to close 1 day before our son was born and everything worked out perfectly!
John and Maria along with their staff were absolutely amazing. They helped me through the process of not only selling a house but buying a new home. It went so quickly I could not believe it was actually happening. They were always available and answered my questions. They were there for me to get through the tough spots also. I would recommend John and Maria to others.
I have partnered with John and Maria Hoffman twice – to purchase my home and most recently to sell that home. John has impeccable professionalism, knowledge of the area & trends with pricing, a network of top notch vendors to help with every detail along the way, and the most awesome staff to make everything go smoothly.
There are hundreds of realtors out there to choose from, but I would trust my business to John only as he has a proven track record with me and I trust him 100% to work on my behalf and deliver results, which he has done.
Thank you John and Maria!
10 Plus! Our experience with John & Maria was flawless – just wonderful! Buyers or sellers can not go wrong with John & Maria. They would be in the best hands possible!”
“John and Maria were instrumental in making my purchase smooth and easy even tho I was in Santa Fe, NM. Maria treated me like I was her own “mother”. Tania Borelli did the follow up with me and she is simply the greatest and I simply find her so kind and willing to do whatever she can to help! It constantly amazes me how much these people were willing to help after I moved in recommending doctors and yoga studios and services. My purchase of this property was very pleasant and happy the whole way!! No bad feelings. Highly recommend them.”
Maria is extremely knowledgeable and motivated when it came time to help us find a house to buy. I would highly recommend this company.
“My experience with Maria and Tania could was just awesome. They were always just a phone call away to answers questions and give help in any way they could. I can be very needy at times and expect answers quickly. They never let me down. Top notch professional team That I will refer to anyone without the slightest hesitation.”
“I just purchased a home from Maria and the team and they were extremely professional and always follow-up on all questions or concerns. I would highly recommend them if you are seeking a professional agent with knowledge and the commitment to locate you the right home.”
“To any seller or buyer looking for a competent, experienced and professional real estate agent, you will find Maria Hoffman at the top of your short list.
“What I liked most about Maria was her professional focus. She arranged our meeting, introduced herself, offered her real estate services as listing agent, emphasized the benefits from using the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and provided a comprehensive market analysis that included homes for sale and sold homes in the area.”
“Although Maria added that she was familiar with our area, having had listings or experience in communities close by, her emphasis remained on selling our property: through advertising on the MLS, and through her supportive actions as listing agent.”
“10 out of 10! It is a good idea to go with a staff that knows what they are doing and will work hard to get you in your dream home!”
~Sharlene & Herbert L
“When we decided to sell our house, we contacted John and Maria and had to go no further.
They are a great team who work together to meets the needs of their clients.
On the selling side, John immediately did a market analysis in our area and gave us advice on what we needed to do to our house before listing it on the market. Our house was well advertised and shown to prospective buyers. John was always available to answer our questions and guide us through the process. In fact, our house sold for more than other homes had sold for in our neighborhood.
On the buying side, Maria discussed the pros and cons of short sales, resales , and new construction. Maria quickly identified our “wish list” for our new home and began the search. She tirelessly showed us numerous homes and provided the necessary information and guidance for us to make an informed decision on the purchase of our future home. We purchased a beautiful new home on a gorgeous conservation lot at a great price. Working with John and Maria was a great experience, and we are extremely happy with the choice we made and our new community. This was the best move we ever made, and it would not have been possible without “Team Hoffman.”
We will always refer our friends to you!”
~John & Carol D
“Absolutely the best realtors you will ever find. We had very little knowledge of the area. Maria and John Hoffman were professional, extremely knowledgeable, and focused on our needs. They gave us good advice and great service. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Maria Hoffman, who was always prepared, had a smile, and promptly followed up on all questions and important issues. The Hoffman’s were always available and responsive. We considered ourselves very fortunate to have their expertise representing us. Good family people as well. ”
~Dan & Tina C
Eddie & I wanted to send an extra special thank you your way. You two helped make 2011 so wonderful for both he & I. We absolutely love our new home. Thank you for playing a part in our happiness!
~Eddi & Annah
We are so thankful God sent you to us! It was such a pleasure to work with you on our house hunt! We will continue to tell all our friends about you!
~Ken & Deb
“Maria & John gave us excellent service! We would definitely recommend them…”
“Alba and I would like to thank you very much for your help in selecting our new home. As you remember, we first met you when you were the listing agent for our current house over six years ago. Your professionalism and knowledge of the real estate market were prime reasons for us to contact you when we decided to purchase a new home. We could not be more delighted in the insights you gave to us on the current housing market. Due to this and your knowledge of the market area, we were able to purchase a much larger house, in a better community, at a significant discount from the listing price. Also, your referral for financing, inspection and insurance were above par. Once again thank you.” —
We would highly recommend Maria & John as their knowledge of the real estate industry is invaluable.
~Marshall & Dolly
“My wife and I were looking for investment properties and were referred by a friend (whose brother had bought a house using Maria) to Maria and John. We have purchased numerous properties in the past and have worked with many real estate professionals – we are experienced. As a buyer we worked most closely with Maria, and can honestly say that she is the best real estate broker and overall one of the best people in business with whom we have ever worked (in any business). She knows the Tampa real estate market cold (important for us as we do not reside in Florida), is extremely trustworthy, and truly focused on our needs. Based on her and John’s recommendation we decided to buy a cheaper property with the potential for a better return. We then closed the “short sale from hell!” and Maria was out in front – pushing back appropriately to the other parties to defend our interests; then she’d call and let us know what had transpired. We wholeheartedly recommend Tampa Home Group both for buyers and sellers. My buy side experience, I can guess, is typical for their customers. On the sell side, I had several conversations with John about the overall market (owner, bank, and short sales) and he was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. Our relationship with them will undoubtedly continue. – “
“Maria is a go-getter. A fantastic advocate for the buyer. She gives the buyer a sense of ease with the process. As a buyer you feel like you have a little control over all the things related to purchase. Excellent service from day 1 to closing!”
“I have just completed a sale with TAMPA HOME GROUP….I would like to take the time to say what a great team they are!! I’m BRITISH with a vacation home in TAMPA and was in a very tight spot not knowing who’s who.I had a meeting with various realtors and the one that stood out to me was JOHN @ THG… He says it as he sees it type..I thought if he can do half he says I will be happy… I am very hard to please!! John & Maria Hoffman along with Tania & Vanessa..have done exactly what they said…I could not believe how professional it was handled from the beginning to the end.your home is usually your biggest asset, and trying to find the right realtor can be a minefield …I can’t stress enough how hard these guys worked, and would recommend them to others..Honesty and TRUST are a rare commodity these days but at TAMPA HOME GROUP it’s still popular.I hope this review works for them because they’re worth it! Thanks TAMPA HOME GROUP for everything…”
Maria spent many weekends, looking at a variety of homes all over the county. She never gave up and then pushed through the short sale in half the time that was expected. Great job and great support throughout the process!!
