quotesLipply Real Estate sold my Westchase home in 4 days and then helped my buy a new home. They were exactly what I needed! I found myself in the middle of a divorce, starting a new job and needing to put my house up for sale all at the same time. I saw that they sold my neighbors home quickly so I called them. Four days after they listed my home I had one offer at the full asking price and a second one over asking. The buyers wanted to close in days so they then negotiated an agreement where I could stay in the house rent back from them while I found a house for myself. I ended up purchasing a home directly from the builder. Lipply negotiated with the builder to get me every extra that was possible. They then helped me deal with the builder as they didn’t exactly deliver on everything that was promised. Lipply continued to deal with the them long after I closed so that I didn’t have to do it. They were a real life saver. As far as I’m concerned Lipply Real Estate is my agency for life!” — Kellie McGovern

quotesMy real estate agent, Jillian McGinnis, helped me purchase my first home in the Westchase area and she was FANTASTIC! She promptly responded to all of my questions and helped me purchase my first home. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable and answered my calls and questions on weekends and even over the July 4th weekend. I highly recommend her and have sent my friends to her as well, who are looking to purchase their first homes. She went above and beyond and is committed to helping people find their perfect home.” — Maggie Ciadella

quotesJody Kaufman is the consummate Real Estate professional. I met Jody a year ago during a very difficult situation in which our tenant just “skipped” town, where we own a condo in the Vineyards at Westchase. I called Lipply Real Estate and was put in touch with Jody.  We discussed the possibility of putting the condo on multiple listing or continue renting the condo.  Within a week, Jody furnished me with comparables of other condos in the area  PLUS  he furnished three QUALIFIED tenants should I decide to continue renting the property out. I  decided to continue offering the condo for rent and our present tenants moved in within a month. Jody now is the property manager for the condo as well. Should I decide to sell at some point, I will have every confidence in Jody Kaufman!”  — Robert Nussear

quotesIn searching online for houses that were for sale in the Westchase area, my goal was to take my list of thirty potential houses down to the top three choices.  Hopefully one of them would become a second home for my husband and myself. Needless to say the list of thirty houses was easier to develop than the idea of picking a realtor.  So after reading the bios of the Lipply Realtors, I decided to send Diana Costantino an email with my list of homes and what my plan was once I arrived. What I found when I finally met Diana was an individual who was extremely well organized and competent.  She came with a notebook for me with the houses I wanted to see, arranged by date, area and property descriptions.  Also, she provided a listing of all the homes with asking price, age of home, square footage and numerous other bits of information that would all become pertinent information when putting a contract on a house. Needless to say my discomfort with realtors was washed away with the week I spent with Diana.  She knew I was there to buy a house and she made herself more than available to accommodate my schedule.  As the list changed with houses we eliminated and the new houses we added, Diana would have the new information to update the books the following morning. So in closing, we did purchase a home in the Westchase area and I tribute that to all the work and endless hours that Diana spent with us that week. Her proficiency, grace and humor made it an enjoyable event.  I would highly recommend Diana to any potential homebuyer.” — Brenda Tozzi

quotesWith the 2006 overall real estate market being somewhat depressed, I really was fearful of selling my Westchase property: a) for an amount I considered adequate, and b) in a timely manner.  I consulted with The Lipply Team and listed it with Thomas Towns.  He did his homework by getting comps for the area, and setting a price that I was pleased with, and, that would make it sell. Over the course of 6 weeks he held many open houses, advertised on the Lipply Team website and in regional and national magazines. With every potential client that called him, he put on his best selling hat. After 5 weeks I was becoming a bit depressed, but he put my mind at ease telling me of the various media he was using and all of the interest he was generating. This all paid off when the first offer came in and we negotiated with that buyer and within a few hours sold the home! I got the price I wanted and sold in time to move in to my new home also! Thanks Thomas! I recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling a home – AND – will use him in the future again!”– Moti Sawh

quotesWe were relocating from Houston, TX with little knowledge of Tampa and its surrounding areas. With two busy schedules and a tight timeline, Bob Lipply helped us find the right home at the right price. Bob was an excellent listener and worked closely with us to understand exactly what we wanted. Bob’s knowledge of the local market and of the current home values were just what we needed. We found a beautiful home in Westchase that is congruent with all of our needs. Bob assisted us in all aspects of the home-buying process. From finding the right home, to the negotiating process, the closing process, as well as after-the-sale follow up. Bob left no details to chance. We would recommend the Lipply team to anyone buying or selling a home in the Tampa Bay area. Thanks again Bob!” — Debra and Thomas Dirmyer

quotesThomas Towns was the right mix of support and encouragement – we found the perfect home in the neighborhood that we wanted and in our price range. Thomas even helped us find a great lender and insurance. His willingness to be flexible with our crazy schedules was invaluable. It was an absolute blessing that we had Thomas working on our side in this deal. He was with us every step of the way helping us make informed decisions and making sure we did not loose our sanity despite some of the issues that arose. You have a phenomenal asset in Thomas. It was luck that brought us together and in the future he will be our number one choice when we start a family and move to a bigger home. Thomas Towns has certainly earned my recommendation, and this is not easily done!” — Eric C. Hamilton

quotesJody Kaufman – John and I would like to thank you again for all of your professional help in finding our new home in Westchase, Tampa.  We love the area.   Country and yet only 20 minutes from downtown Tampa and our daughter and her family.  Selling our house in Naples so quickly put a lot of pressure on finding a new home.  Without your help we would have been lost.  You supplied us with every opportunity in the Westchase area and made yourself available, even with very short notice, every time that we called.  You were always honest and forthcoming with ideas at each and every turn of the process. The house that we purchased was not on our viewing list that day and it was your suggestion that led us to the perfect house for us.  Your professional skills put the contract together and made certain a successful closing.  We highly recommend your services and that of Lipply Real Estate.  We look forward to working with you again in the near future.” —   Carolyn and John Shaughnessy
