Therese Mendez, Seller (December 11, 2019):
Carolyn was awesome to work with. Not only was her knowledge of the area helpful but her negotiating skills and responsiveness were supreme. She made the process very simple for us and helped explain things in terms that we could easily understand.
John and Alda Butler, Sellers (November 20, 2019):
Carolyn knows the real estate business well and she knew our neighborhood in particular. She was exceptionally helpful in making sure the property looked its best and she was prompt in keeping us informed of all aspects of the negotiations. We would definitely use her again if the occasion arose.
Jeanie and Steven Menninger, Sellers (November 20, 2019):
May I tell you how I came to know about Bridget? I put my parent's home on the market a few years ago. The sign hadn't gone up on the post before Bridget was bringing us a Buyer with a full price offer. She has a keen eye to looking at property and knowing what her client wants. There was no doubt in my mind who we wanted to sell our home when it came time to move closer to our grandchildren. I knew we would be comfortable with Bridget selling our home and that we were in expert hands. Her professionalism and knowledge of the market is a step above the rest. She is always available to take your calls and answer texts. We highly recommend Bridget and her excellent team.
Vicki Hibbard, Seller (November 19, 2019):
Bridget is totally on top of her listings as well as extremely knowledgeable about local market trends. I have referred her to family and friends and will continue to do that since all have been extremely pleased with her services. Exceptional professionalism and great intuitive insight.
Michael and Janelle Tutera, Buyers (November 12, 2019):
I am so grateful to have found Bridget during my search for a Condo in FL. The first thing that impressed me was how responsive she was when I first inquired on Zillow about a property. She continued to be extremely responsive and knowledgeable throughout the entire process! One attribute of Bridget that I was impressed with was that she did not take the "high pressure" sales tactic of hurrying to get you pre-approved and pressuring you to make a move. She TRUSTED that I was a qualified buyer and treated me with respect. It was as if she was equally interested as I was to find the right place for me and my family. When we did decide to place an offer, she had the right connections in place in the market who were able to get me quickly approved and offer me an unbelievable rate. The other area Bridget excelled in is that she is a fighter!!! When we were negotiating the deal, she was more aggressive than I was! She continued this aggressive fighter approach after the inspection took place and got me more than I thought I would be able to get, and I negotiate for a living! She even took a stand up approach when there was one thing we couldn't negotiate with the owners and she paid for it herself! I honestly don't think I could have achieved this property without her! She was a true blessing to me and allowed me to achieve my dream! I got lucky finding her but I am hopeful someone reads this and can benefit in the same way I did by calling and working with Bridget! Thank you so much!
Megan Willis, Seller (November 7, 2019):
I would recommend Bridget in a heartbeat. She was very confident and helpful in selling my home. I presented her with my personal goals for selling the home and we were able to meet them!"
Alan and Chris Spring, Buyers (November 5, 2019):
We had a wonderful experience with Bridget and her team. We had a small window to find a home and Bridget filled the week with loads of possibilities. We feel fortunate to have worked with her and highly recommend others do the same. The entire process from home search to closing went very well!
Jeanne Benoit, Buyer (November 5, 2019):
Bridget took a lot of my anxiety on as I bought the condo without physically being here, lived in Massachusetts. Very responsive and helpful every step of the way.
Spencer and Christina Montgomery, Buyers (October 28, 2019):
Working with Bridget and the Coastal Estate Team was a dream come true! They operate like a well-oiled maching making the buying process smooth and easy! Bridget is extremely knowledgeable of the Brevard area and was always easy to get in touch with (via text, phone, and email!). My husband and I wanted to find a home and close quickly, and we were able to do that because of Bridget and the Team! We sent Bridget a list of 10 homes we wanted to see, and she was able to show us all of the homes in one afternoon and we had an offer accepted on our dream home 2 days later! Closing was also effortless and we were able to close in less than 30 days as we desired. If you are in the housing market or want to sell your home look no further, I highly recommend working with Bridget!
Gary and Susan Lüderitz, Buyers (October 23, 2019):
Carolyn was impressive in multiple ways: One learns quickly that her ethics and her professional demeanor is front and center; yet that did not diminish her creativity and her ability to find solutions that would lead to a deal. Her accessibility and responsiveness were always accompanied by a warm interaction, often with a broad smile. More evidence, we think, of experience and confidence. Loved her!
Richard and Linda Mitts, Sellers (October 22, 2019):
Carolyn is very professional and very dependable. She is very knowledgeable at how to stage your house and what is needed and what is not. As a result we had a buyer within the week. I highly recommend her.
Pam and John Kent, Buyers (October 1, 2019):
By listening to our needs, likes, and dislikes, Carolyn knew what we wanted before we did. She is simply Amazing! If you are looking for a home in the Melbourne area, we wouldn't go to anyone else. Extremely knowledgeable about the area and the business. Wish we had had Carolyn to sell our previous home. A true professional in every way.
Gerry and Julie Williams, Buyers (August 26, 2019):
Bridget Sentz is the premier realtor in Brevard County! Every time we viewed a property Bridget would perform a methodical inspection, looking for signs of problems and commenting on the quality of construction while visualizing what each property could be based on our needs. Bridget negotiated a price well below the listed price while her confident demeanor put us at ease throughout the whole home buying process. Bridget found the property we envisioned as our perfect home and at the right price.
Danielle Thal, Buyer (August 21, 2019):
Bridget Sentz was warm and welcoming the first moment I met her. She was full of knowledge regarding the area and the style of the home. Bridget was also present during the inspection process. Additionally, she and her assistant Jen kept me up-to-date on the entire closing process and always got back to me in a timely manner with any questions I may have had. I am so grateful I was able to work with them.
Troy Glassman, Seller (August 13, 2019):
Incredible agent. Very professional. She worked with us throughout the selling process and always was there to answer questions. I would 100% recommend. Bridget knows the market and area. If we buy or sell again, we will absolutely work with her and her team again.
Carrie and Steve Senkarik, Buyers (July 30, 2019):
Bridget is the best!! We moved here from Georgia and we were not sure if we wanted to buy an existing home or build. She is so knowledgeable of the area... she showed us both existing and toured some new build areas. Moving from out of state, we had a lot of last minute trips to Florida to look at homes and so many questions! She was so patient with us and she was always available for us... whether it was a phone call or a last minute visit to look at homes. Bridget is a wealth of knowledge and was able to guide us in every aspect of our move. I highly recommend her and her team, she really made our move to this area wonderful... she really goes the extra mile to make sure your house hunting and move is a great experience!
Tim and Jeannine Bell, Sellers (June 5, 2019):
Carolyn was amazing as she expertly guided us through selling our home of 30 years. She was always available to answer a question or offer advice throughout the entire process. We highly recommend Carolyn and her team of experts and will definitely be calling them when we are ready to buy.
Barbara Rowse, Seller and Buyer (May 10, 2019):
Amazing realty team. Helped us sell our home quickly and also buy our new dream home. We have worked with Carolyn and Jen before and would do it again.
Aaron and Kelly Robinson, Sellers (May 7, 2019):
Carolyn was amazing to work with! She is exceptionally knowledgeable, appropriately assertive and well connected with the community and key individuals that can assist with necessary repairs. Her assistant Jen was also extremely helpful in all areas related to real estate. We felt very confident with Carolyn in our corner and highly recommend!
Dennis and Susan Levesque, Buyers (April 29, 2019):
Just had a great buying experience with Bridget and her REMAX team. Very responsive, knowledgeable and helpful. They went above and beyond in many ways. I recommend Bridget without hesitation.
Amanda Mathieu and Joshua Arbogast, Buyers (April 8, 2019):
Carolyn is extremely knowledgeable and helpful with all things real estate. She really knows the area, the things to look for, the entire loan process, and much more. She is quick to respond and take care of any questions, issues, or requests. As first time home buyers, we were thankful for all the guidance and advice she gave us and are very happy with the home we found with her help. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of a real estate professional!
Carrie and Mel George, Sellers and Buyers (March 28, 2019):
Bridget was absolutely incredible to work with in selling our house and buying our dream home! Her knowledge of the local real estate market is 2nd to none and I am so thankful for her expertise. Could not be happier with her in my corner.
Leslie and Henry Marquez, Sellers (March 27, 2019):
Bridget is our go-to rock star Realtor! We were hesitant on timing the market right for a top dollar sale. She coached us not only on the perfect timing but also helped us to identify what small fixes we could do to make our house shine. She had us under contract with the perfect buyer within 3 days and we closed 23 days later. This is the 2nd home we've bought and sold with her and needless to say, she continues to raise the bar. If you're looking for a 5-STAR experience buying or selling your home, look no further. Bridget is on top of her game!
David Shipe, Seller (March 26, 2019):
Carolyn was very responsive and guided us with good advice during the negotiation process. We were in another state when all this was going on so that was very important. I was very pleased with the sale of my mother's house and would recommend Carolyn and her team.
Mitzy and Nimish Shah, Sellers (March 21, 2019):
We had a very pleasurable experience with Carolyn Smith as the Realtor selling our condo in Satellite Beach, Florida. I am an engineer who retired and moved back to California. We put our condo on the market for sale in January 2019. Carolyn was able to find a cash buyer while we were in California and negotiated the sale very quickly and got us close to our selling price. The buyers were looking at other units with lower sales prices in our building but Carolyn convinced them to buy ours with upgrades. We closed and sold our condo at the end of February. Carolyn has very good people skills and listens to the desires of her clients. It was tricky to negotiate the sale with us living in California and buyers in Florida. Carolyn also has excellent people skills and is honest not just pushing for sale. She knows the area well and priced our condo to sell. The other units are still on the market and have not sold. We were concerned about living in California and maintaining a beach condo in Florida. We are very relieved our condo sold so quickly which happened primarily because Carolyn worked efficiently on finding us a good buyer. I would highly recommend Carolyn.
Christine Jelalian and Peter Curtis, Buyers (March 19, 2019):
Extremely knowledgeable about all facets of the real estate process. Her opinions and guidance were invaluable to the excellent outcome we had. She pointed out things that most people would not have taken into consideration. Every property we asked to see, she already had history, updates, community considerations, pros and cons ready for any questions my wife and I had. There is no way you can go wrong by contacting Bridget for help with your real estate needs.
Lisa and Brian Kennedy, Sellers (March 11, 2019):
It is with great pleasure that I highly recommend Bridget Sentz as a real estate agent for any individual or family trying to sell their home. Bridget was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make to attract buyers quickly and her advice worked. She was able to put us in contact with individuals to help us get the home ready for sale and each and every contractor was quick and diligent in their work. She is highly talented and connected with everyone in the community, her knowledge is vastly superior to any other real estate agent I have ever worked with. Bridget truly made the sale of our home an easy and painless process. Bridget is a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. We are pleased to recommend Bridget Sentz to anyone looking buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice in real estate agents.
Marie Heath, Buyer (March 7, 2019):
Bridget answered every question we had. The resources she recommended were very helpful. Bridget's knowledge of construction is an added bonus. I really appreciate that after the sale was final, she is still willing to help track down resources, from obscure thermostat codes to suppliers of the 20+ year old hurricane shutters. Bridget's reference for insurance was the best quote we received. Bridget was prompt and timely in all her responses, whether text, voice, or email. Bridget stayed throughout the 3 hour home inspection and provided much extra info and suggestions as per "who could do what". I would definitely work with Bridget again.
Fred and Laura Seleman, Buyers (January 1, 2019):
Bridget made the whole looking and buying process smooth and easy. Her whole team walked us carefully through every step and helped with all the details that could have easily gotten lost in the shuffle. We were buying in an area that we had never even visited before and Bridget showed us around the area as well as found us the perfect place. I cannot recommend this realtor and her group highly enough!
Kristan Cabrera, Buyer and Seller (December 3, 2018):
ABOVE AND BEYOND!! Amazing work ethic. We had very specific things we needed in a new house. Carolyn and Jen worked hard and found us exactly what we were looking for. They were available during times convenient to us. We refer EVERYONE I know to Carolyn.
Bryan Stewart, Buyer (November 12, 2018):
Our experience with Carolyn and the entire Coastal Estate Team was great. We were relocating from Jacksonville Beach for a new career opportunity and looking to move quickly. From the first introductory call all the way through to the closing, Carolyn was responsive, friendly, diligent and made the entire process go without a hitch. In our situation, she ended up being the transaction agent/broker and I always felt like she was representing the best interests of all parties involved. We were able to quickly navigate and negotiate a win-win deal with her assistance. She also handled details we did not even expect including having the home professionally cleaned for us and doing the final walkthrough for us in our absence. Lastly, the awesome housewarming gifts and Coastal Estate Team swag were a great touch. (I use the coffee mug almost every morning!) I would highly recommend Carolyn and her entire team if you are looking in the Melbourne area.
Fergus Kelly, Seller (October 9, 2018):
Bridget, Carolyn, and the entire Coastal Estate Team were great to work with. They are knowledgeable and helpful in every aspect of the home buying/selling process. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Kerrie Hernandez, Buyer (September 11, 2018):
WOW!!!!! Where do I begin.... Bridget and Carolyn are top notch 5 stars all the way!!!! They are the BEST in the business, they are extremely knowledgeable and they think of everything. They are always available for you no matter how big or small the question. They never give up even when faced with huge obstacles. Jen is absolutely FABULOUS and thinks of everything for you! I am in my dream home because of these 3 ladies!!! I highly recommend them; their professionalism, knowledge, and expertise far exceeded all my expectations, I absolutely love them!!!! There is no one else like the Coastal Estate Team. Call them you won't regret it!!!!
Jeffrey and Lynn Palmatier, Sellers (August 29, 2018):
This review is overdue since we actually had to sell another property in GA immediately following the closing on this house. In a way that turns out to be a good thing as I now have another Realtor experience with which to compare my experience with Bridget and Carolyn. The difference was night and day. In fact, if it wasn't for the experience with Bridget who guided us through every step of the way my second sale would have been much more difficult. As I now knew what had to be done and was able to make it happen when my "realtor" went missing in action after the listing. My only regret is that they don't cover SC which I think will be my next purchase. Highly, highly recommended.
Jessica and Bligh Lapp, Buyers (August 28, 2018):
Bridget Sentz went above and beyond at absolutely every opportunity during our relocation and housing search here in Brevard County. Relocating for a new job is stressful but having Bridget in our corner made this process a breeze. Bridget had our best interest in mind through every step, from helping us explore mature neighborhoods, to literally dissecting school districts with us and introducing us to new construction communities, Bridget ensured that she helped us explore literally every possibility before deciding what was best for our family. At NO time during the process did we ever feel rushed or pressured to make a decision, despite the DOZENS of homes she expertly walked us through. Her patience and fortitude during our housing search is what makes Bridget such a RARE and seasoned professional. Her tenacity helped us secure a great deal on our new home. Her construction background helped us thoroughly understand the inspection report we ordered while under escrow, and again when unforeseen results came up, Bridget navigated negotiations and repairs carefully to ensure we were comfortable with our purchase. As we are now moving to close on our dream property, Bridget has also been incremental in helping with our financing and closing arrangements. Every recommendation she had provided has been another rockstar like herself. Her genuine support during this process has helped ease the stress of our move tremendously and I would recommend Bridget time and time again. Her expertise, grace, and now friendship are something I will be thankful for and cherish for years to come as my husband and I start this new chapter in our lives!
Luke Hamel, Buyer (August 16, 2018):
I cannot thank Carolyn enough with helping me with my new home purchase. I couldn't decide on buying an existing house beachside or building a new house in Viera. I ultimately decided on building a new home in Viera. She helped me find a wonderful contractor and guided me through the whole project. Her experience as a former building contractor was very beneficial. I highly recommend Carolyn and her team for any home sales or purchases.
Leon Terkoski, Seller (August 10, 2018):
Background - My mother and father recently passed away leaving me as the executor of their trust. As executor, I was in need of selling their house due to their will. I have limited experience in the sale and buying of property. My initial meeting with Bridget Sentz was very informative and productive concerning the sale of their house. She was very knowledgeable on the neighborhood and brought to the table a trusting can do attitude. I signed a contract and seven days later the house was under contract. I did not expect such a quick offer. From that day forward, I was kept informed on the progress of the sale with informative telephone calls, emails, and texts. From my perspective this sale could not have been any easier. There were no surprises or hiccups and closing occurred as scheduled. I would highly recommend the professional services of Bridget Sentz and Carolyn Smith.
Kristan Cabrera, Seller (July 27, 2018):
ABOVE AND BEYOND!! Carolyn and her sidekick Jen are the most amazing Realty team. My house flooded after we had a bid and they went to extraordinary lengths to help me through the process. They are amazing!!
Alisa and Jon Haskett, Buyers (July 19, 2018):
Bridget, Taylor and their team did an amazing job for us. From start to finish they ensured everything went seamless. My family and I are loving our new home and if I could give more than 5 stars I would. Thank you guys!!
Megan and Mark Ballantyne, Buyers (July 16, 2018):
We were relocating from out of state with no knowledge of the area. After sharing our wants and needs with Carolyn, she was able to narrow down neighborhoods and homes for us to look at. We spent a lot of time emailing back and forth and she always provided a thorough response, usually within minutes! When we arrived for a house hunting trip, Carolyn showed us around for three straight days with patience and enthusiasm. She truly understood what we were looking for and we ended up with the perfect home for us. Carolyn's responsiveness, knowledge of the area and market, and positive no-pressure attitude truly set her apart. We highly recommend her!
Neena and Tavis Sisson, Buyers and Sellers (July 10, 2018):
Carolyn and Bridget and Jen are amazing!! They are definitely more like friends at this point. Very knowledgeable, patient and on top of their game. You honestly can't go wrong with them!
Chris and Ann Hampson, Buyers and Sellers (May 20, 2018):
I can’t recommend Carolyn & Co highly enough. We had a fairly drawn out process - we bought new construction that had hiccups on the developers side - and lesser agents probably would have lost interest. But throughout the whole process Carolyn was super involved, helping us navigate the builders, timing, and all the little things we knew nothing about. As we come to the finish line of both our sale and purchase I am amazed at how much work Carolyn put into us. She was always available - even at times she really shouldn’t have been - and has an amazing network of people like handymen to recommend along the way. I’m honestly not sure we would have made it without her.
Edwin and Sherry Yates, Buyers (May 18, 2018):
We sold our home in NJ very quickly and wanted to relocate to Florida. My husband reached out to Carolyn Smith who referred us to her partner Bridget Sentz for home shopping. Bridget quickly lined up the homes that we wanted to look at and added one she thought we may like. Bridget was very knowledgeable about the area, about the construction of the homes and gave us an idea in what it may cost to fix certain issues. We fell in love with a home and made an offer. From there Bridget and her Client Care Manager Jen Conrad helped us through everything, inspections, seller repairs, insurance etc. They really made buying a home from out of state a lot less stressful!
Jon and Carolyn McArtor, Buyers (May 2, 2018):
Bridget and Carolyn were great to work with. Prompt with responses to questions, knowledgeable about the property and the entire home buying process. Would recommend them to friends or family that may be looking for a home.
Lance and Bev Youngquist, Buyers and Sellers (May 1, 2018):
We have had 2 real estate transactions with Bridget and Carolyn, our daughter has had 3...they are awesome! Professional, knowledgeable and extremely proficient, they know the market, have great processes and their staff keeps the process flowing. Having built and sold hundreds of homes in the NC market, we know what it takes to sell and it has been a pleasure to do business with this professional team.
Albert Picallo, Seller (April 13, 2018):
Seriously - you were great. Always had an answer for our questions and guided us along in every way. It was a real pleasure to work with you. I hope all of your listings and sales go as smoothly as this one.
Carolyn Mistretta, Buyer (April 11, 2018):
Carolyn was amazing throughout the long process of new construction in Viera. She provided honest, valuable feedback on options that would/would not add value when/if I sold the home in the future. Her familiarity with the construction process helped us quickly identify items that needed to be corrected, ensuring a smooth closing and move-in process. Most importantly, she and her team were always quick to respond to questions and concerns. The open, reliable line of communication made me feel like I was in good hands the entire process. Thank you!
David and Lanny Ornelas, Buyers (March 9, 2018):
Carolyn was recommended to us by a friend who had used her to purchase his house. After explaining what my wife and I were looking for, she immediately jumped into action. She took care of issues I was having with a relocation agency. She had her agency find me a rental house. And since we decided to have a house built, she represented us with the builder at every turn. She worked with my wife picking all the house colors, textures, flooring, roofing, countertops, exterior trees/palms, etc. She found us a mortgage company to work with. She was very responsive to our questions and knowledgeable about all aspects of the build, the area and contractors. My wife and I learned that if Carolyn recommends something, she is right. We liked the fact that she tells it like it is.
Mike and Sue Deschaine, Sellers (February 22, 2018):
Carolyn was amazing. Her knowledge of the physical structure of buildings and property is outstanding to the point where her decisions can help you prep your property properly. Her knowledge of how to prepare it for sale is indispensable. It was comforting for me to know that she was trustworthy, forthright and correct in her points to help my family with our decisions.
Barb and Jim Rowse, Buyers and Sellers (February 16, 2018):
Carolyn and Jennifer went out of their way to make sure we got the house we wanted. Carolyn is a hard negotiator who will go the extra mile for her clients. We would want them to be our Realtors, if need be, in the future.
Stephanie Fields and Geoff Cooke, Buyers (February 15, 2018):
Bridget has been amazing to work with from the first phone call. She has total command of the local market factors and is not only extremely knowledgeable but an absolute pleasure to work with. My experience was even better than I had hoped for.
Julie & Gerry Williams, Sellers (January 29, 2018):
My house came with some obstacles to selling with the hurricane in September and a lot of health issues I was having. I also lived in NC and trying to do some renovations going back and forth was not easy. Bridget and her team were available to help with appointments and decisions anytime I needed them. It was awesome to have such a knowledgeable, caring team. I highly recommend them to anyone selling their home in the Space Coast area!
Eric and Dani Smith, Buyers and Sellers (January 24, 2018):
Selling and buying a new home can be a very stressful time. We were so blessed to have Bridget Sentz as our realtor. She made every step smooth and answered all of our questions with speed and knowledge. She listed our home and sold our home in a day! What more can we say! She assisted us in transitioning us to a rental property and finding us another home to buy. There is no one else that we would ever use again. Her brilliant negotiating skills and knowledge of realty is superior. I would highly recommend Bridget Sentz for any selling and buying of a new home, you will not be disappointed.
Bruce and Judy Szypot, Buyers (January 22, 2018):
We have purchased over 10 houses in our life and Bridget is the very best agent we've worked with. She required an appraisal of the property as part of the sale contract, which resulted in a much lower purchase price for us. She was a delight to work with, incredibly responsive and very knowledgeable about the real estate market. Bridget also provided us with a list of excellent contractors that we have employed to do work on our new home. Finally, Bridget seems to always be working, she even responded to some of our questions on New Year’s Eve!
James and Nadia Schefter, Buyers (January 15, 2018):
Of the dozens of realtors we’ve worked with over the years Bridget Sentz is by far the best. Bridget is incredibly competent and knows what she is doing through all stages of the home buying process. She brings a calm sense of confidence to the table and is truly a pleasure to work with!
Tom and Mary Ann Leitch, Buyers (December 26, 2017):
Bridget was there for us from the moment we met her. She sent us many listings prior to meeting her to get to know what we were looking for. She found a home for us in ONE day (and I don't make up my mind very quickly!). We ended up building a home and it has worked out wonderfully. With the few kinks or questions we had along the way, Bridget was there for us right away. It's been a real pleasure working with a professional as knowledgeable and helpful as Bridget.
Kim Evans and Andres Gonzalez, Buyers and Sellers (December 19, 2017):
The VERY BEST team in Brevard County!!! Carolyn has helped us buy two houses and sell one. Every transaction couldn't have been smoother or easier. For our home sale, Carolyn found us an all cash buyer who would let us live in the house until we found our next dream home (which we did)! And she did all this before even officially listing the house in the MLS by using her many real estate connections. They also have an amazing assistant, Jen, who is the most detailed and responsive admin/transaction coordinator I have ever seen. And we also worked with Bridget some, and she really knows her stuff as well. I have recommended them to many people who are all beyond happy with the amazing work they do. I can't say enough great things about this team - you cannot go wrong working with the Coastal Estate Team!!!
Rob and Joanne Siegner, Buyers (December 14, 2017):
Very professional throughout. Attention to detail absolutely amazing. Some days I received 8 or more texts/emails keeping me up to date on progress of things. Closing went without a hitch and even now after the fact Carolyn is helping on issues since I am not there to let contractors in to take care of these things. She is the best.
Jonathan and Roxana Klodt, Buyers (November 29, 2017):
My husband and I are a military family that moved to the area in search of our new home. We contacted Bridget to help us in our search. From the very beginning Bridget and her team were excellent. They are extremely professional and knowledgeable. She guided us through the process and always answered all our questions. We are so lucky we found her. She is truly the best realtor we've had the pleasure of working with. Highly recommend Bridget and her team!!
Arnold and Ellen Greenstein, Buyers (November 29, 2017):
Bridget was the seller's agent, but we contacted her directly and she represented us as buyers as well. She is highly knowledgeable about the area and market, and she was very helpful guiding us through all aspects of the negotiating and closing process. I have no reservations about recommending her as either a buyer or seller's agent.
Bennett and Britney Coffey, Buyers (November 10, 2017):
My husband and I worked with Carolyn Smith to build/purchase our first new home. The process was nothing less than excellent. Carolyn was responsive, knowledgeable, and professional from the start. She was with us every step of the way to guide us through the home buying process, provide recommendations on design, and ensure that all of our questions/concerns were addressed in a timely manner. I could not have asked for a better home buying experience and would recommend Carolyn and Bridget to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Tony and Jeanne Cook, Buyers (November 1, 2017):
Carolyn took the time to understand exactly what was important to us and found the perfect home for us. We enjoyed working with her and would definitely recommend her whether you are selling or buying.
Fergus and Eva Kelly, Buyers (October 20, 2017):
I enjoyed working with Bridget every step of the way. She is professional and personable. Responded to every question, request and issue in a timely way. I highly recommend “Life by the Beach” and Bridget to help accomplish your real estate needs!
Michael and Gail Routsong, Buyers (October 14, 2017):
Bridget and Jen were the best! I felt that Bridget was very knowledgeable about areas of concern with the house I was buying and negotiated to be sure those concerns were fixed by the previous owner. She is extremely easy to communicate with and promptly resolved problems. I would not hesitate to recommend!
Samy and Shaima Zabarah, Buyers and Sellers (September 27, 2017):
Carolyn Smith is truly one of the best and most reliable real estate agents I have ever worked with! Carolyn helped us buy our home and now she has helped us sell our home. She is incredibly patient, has a wealth of knowledge and truly looked out for our best interest. I am extremely pleased and I highly recommend her to anyone in Brevard county. Thank you so much Carolyn and Jen! You have been truly awesome!
Susan Goodrich, Buyer (August 6, 2017):
Bridget is absolutely amazing. We live in MD and were starting the search for our retirement home so reached out to Bridget based on a recommendation from friends who had used Bridget for their home purchase. Bridget worked with us prior to our trip to Melbourne go over our interests and lined up a selection of house to look at, committing as much of her time as we needed over our long weekend in FL. We found a house but then had second thoughts about purchasing as a rental for several years before we retire. Bridget has an excellent understanding of the rental market as well as all of the costs and was able to help us develop a plan that we felt comfortable with. The house we selected was new construction and with a very short window to finalize all of our selections, Bridget went out of her way to work with us and the builder to help us with our selections, providing excellent and much appreciated design guidance. Building from MD would have been a challenge without a realtor as supportive as Bridget. She attended all of our walkthroughs and helped us negotiate with the builder when several things were missed. We felt very comfortable with the remote build knowing that Bridget was there looking out for us. I reached out to Bridget on multiple occasions with design questions as well as for recommendations for thing such insurance agents and mortgage companies. She responds to mail within minutes, whether at 7AM or 10PM. She is one of the hardest working and most responsive people that I have ever worked with. In addition to being smart and hardworking, Bridget is a positive and fun lady who we really enjoyed working with.
Hilmer and Deborah Shackelford, Buyers and Sellers (August 1, 2017):
Bridget is an amazing, smart lady. She knows her business and enjoys meeting her client’s needs. Bridget handled the sale of our home to us and now for us to the new buyers. She also helped my mom with her purchase and us with the sale. Bridget is a great listener, is fair, and goes out of her way to make the deal work. Bridget thinks of all the details and closing was made a breeze every time. With all the headaches of selling and buying Bridget understands the need for patience, humor, and responsiveness. Any time we called, unless she was with a client, no matter what time or what day, she would answer the phone. If she was with someone she would text and get back to us as soon as possible but never longer than a few hours. She even offered to help us find temporary housing while our new home is being built. Bridget will not let you down and is totally honest about everything.
Joe and Kim Carley, Buyers (July 28, 2017):
Working with Carolyn was such a pleasure. She is so knowledgeable and responsive. She was always watching out for us and we knew we were in good hands as we navigated through finding and buying our dream home. Thank you Carolyn and your team!
Michael Garrett and Elisha Montgomery, Buyers (July 27, 2017):
Carolyn helped us buy our first home and the process couldn't have been better! We were initially very intimidated as first time buyers but Carolyn and her team walked us through the process step by step. She and her assistant addressed all of our concerns at every step of the way immediately. We highly recommend Carolyn and her team! Carolyn and her team put our needs first at all times. At no point did Carolyn ever try to talk us into a potential home we were looking at. Rather, she'd point out every potential flaw she could identify, many of which we'd otherwise be completely oblivious to. She is incredibly knowledgeable, a veritable fountain of information. Once we decided on the home we wanted, the inspector she recommended was exceedingly thorough and informative, and identified even the most insignificant of potential flaws. We're also very happy with the insurance agent she recommended. Any time we sent Carolyn an email, text, or voicemail, she and/or a member of her team would reply that same day, often within an hour. Even late at night, or while she was on vacation. And not just a quick reply --- every question was always answered in clear detail. To the point that we even started to feel kinda guilty. Does she even sleep? Does she have secret superpowers? A clone perhaps? Seriously though, her communication skills are unparalleled. And that also applies to the way she and her team communicated with and coordinated our lender, the title company, the insurance agent, the inspection service, the appraiser, the seller's agent, etc. At closing, when our lender was dragging their feet on wiring the loan, Carolyn and her team went to bat for us, they got mean with the lender, and they got results --- the wire was sent immediately thereafter. While we were busy signing papers, Carolyn kept our 1yo daughter happy on her knee (both our girls came to closing, and both took a shine to her from day one of house hunting). When all was finished, she gifted us a tip top bottle of bubbly to help us celebrate. Even now, the support continues. Carolyn and her team continue to check up on us and have a list of preferred companies for everything from garage door maintenance to pest control, which they provide to their clients. They know what good service looks like, they have very high standards, and the list is regularly updated. We live in a world where a lot of people are lazy and/or incompetent and don't do their jobs like they should. Carolyn and her team do their jobs so exceptionally well --- what a breath of fresh air!
Jennifer Hinckley, Buyer (July 25, 2017):
I recommend Bridget and Carolyn for anyone who is in the search for a new home. As a first time home owner, both agents helped me throughout the entire process and never left my side. Carolyn was very helpful and answered all my questions in a timely manner. She's not only professional and supportive during the home buying process, but she also stayed in touch after I closed on my home. She made the process easy and was consistent in her communication. Bridget and Carolyn are the Best of the Best!
Debbie Brown, Buyer (July 24, 2017):
This was a truly eye-opening experience!! I received above and beyond what a professional agency has to offer!!! I would not hesitate to refer their services knowing how pleased I was from start to finish!! Truly exceptional & excellent service!!!
Kim and Karl Seiler, Sellers (July 11, 2017):
The whole team was great. Bridget knew her stuff and kept everything on the tracks through the close. Sold in 1 day at full ask. No fussing around. Solid business people. Would not hesitate to use again on the buy or sell side.
Shawn and Krystle Hansen, Buyers (June 30, 2017):
Carolyn and Bridget, along with their amazing team made our horror of house hunting as smooth and delightful as possible. They take the time to plan every detail so that you don't have to! They really make house hunting a great experience! Thank you ladies for helping us find the perfect home!
Christine Bourdeau, Buyer (June 22, 2017):
Carolyn Smith goes above and beyond any realtor I have ever known. Her expertise I have found to be very dependable. Above all, she really cares and wants to make the client happy. I have worked with Carolyn for many years and I've always been extremely satisfied with the results. It is also worth mentioning that her assistant Jen Conrad is amazing. She anticipates my needs before I do and is always very responsive!
Jeff McNatt, Buyer (May 24, 2017):
The team went above and beyond to help me throughout the process. I have been an investor in the area for over 8 years and I have worked with many realtors. This was one of the best experiences I have had working with realtors in the area! Thanks for everything!
Tina and Nima Rezvan, Buyers (May 16, 2017):
Bridget took such great care of my husband and I during our long-distance move from CT. Her knowledge of the area, the business, and all the neighborhoods put us right at ease. Always patient, Bridget made us feel like her only clients, quickly responding to emails, texts and phone calls. It is easy to see how much she loves her job, and helping clients find their perfect fit.
Doug Graham and Verna Lang, Buyers and Sellers (May 8, 2017):
We fell into Carolyn's hands when we first decided to move to Brevard County. We were looking for a home Florida Oceanside and living in Maryland at the time. Carolyn was diligent and found us the perfect home! We were there for 6 years. Just recently we decided to move inland, and of course we used Carolyn again. We spent endless days looking at homes. In the end Carolyn, again, found us the perfect home. Her team doesn't just leave you there, they walk and talk you through every step of the home buying process. Thank you Carolyn and Jen for all your help and tolerance. We can finally take a deep breath and enjoy our new home.
Allen and Cindi Wickey, Sellers (May 5, 2017):
I am so impressed with Carolyn and her teammates. She had a contract on our house before it even hit the MLS. She is always available for questions, answers promptly (even when on vacation) and has an incredible knowledge of the real estate business. I would highly recommend her!!!!
Nick and Shelley DiMaio, Sellers (May 5, 2017):
Our Agent Carolyn and the entire team was outstanding. Carolyn was honest and gave us great advice on what we needed to do to in order to sell our home. She is incredibly knowledgeable and marketed our unique home very well to attract buyers. The entire team was involved in assisting us during the selling process. The team was very responsive as questions arose. Carolyn's negotiation skills are top notch. The entire team has a calming influence. Carolyn shielded us from the typical situations that arise which can cause an excessive amount of worrying. We appreciated how she would not allow us to get into a bad situation. This team is far and away the best I have ever worked with and I cannot recommend them enough!
Kristen and Chris Barry, Buyers and Sellers (April 12, 2017):
I worked with Carolyn on both the sale of my house and the purchase of my townhome. Carolyn is incredibly knowledgeable in all areas of the real estate market. She was spot on with the sale price of my home and within the four days that people came through the house we had several offers. She works well with other agents in the negotiation process and is fair and firm. Her response time to any and all questions is immediate and she explains every detail in an easy to understand way when all the details get confusing. Carolyn is an EXTREMELY hard worker (24/7) and will be able to either locate you the perfect home or sell your home for you. I would 100% recommend her and her team.
Haven and Josh Rector, Sellers (March 16, 2017):
These ladies are AMAZING! We cannot say enough about how smooth and quick our selling process was. Everything was so professional - from the initial visit, to the photos, down to the last closing detail. Honestly, if it were not for these ladies, our house would not have closed in a timely manner. They went above and beyond to ensure we were kept in the loop on every detail and that things were executed in a timely manner. If you are looking for a team that knows how to get things done, this is it!
Joan and Mark McDonald, Buyers (March 9, 2017):
These are two of the hardest working realtors in the business. Bridget was our realtor, but had friends that used Carolyn and they say just as wonderful things about her. Bridget was very knowledgeable of the central Florida coast real estate market. She was even able to provide information on homes that had not yet come on the market. Since we were conducting our home search from 2500 miles away, it was vital to have complete and responsive communication; that's exactly what we got from Bridget. We were exceptionally pleased with our home search experience because of Bridget and her team. My husband and I highly recommend them.
Ed and Sue Thomas, Buyers (March 6, 2017):
Bridget and her team were absolutely the best a buyer could ask for. She showed us a good selection of homes, some of which we had preselected, in a wide range of prices providing us multiple options. She presented each one without prejudice, pointing out the best attributes of each. There is no hard sell from Bridget. She also is a great negotiator for her clients She provided a lot of information about each neighborhood we visited. She was always available to help us throughout our transaction. Her support team back at the office was also amazing, clearly communicating and documenting each stage of the process. In the end, we felt we made a friend and had a beautiful new home in a great neighborhood.
Stuart McCloskey, Seller (March 6, 2017):
We used Bridget Sentz as our realtor and were extremely impressed with her professionalism and attention to detail. We would recommend Bridget and Carolyn to anyone looking to sell their home.
Brandi and Eric Trew, Buyers (February 8, 2017):
Bridget and Carolyn are outstanding. They were always available and willing to talk, and were extremely patient with us when we changed our minds about which properties to see and purchase. We were extremely impressed with their knowledge of this area and the number of connections they have with builders, tradespeople, lenders and other real estate agents. Most importantly, we had no doubt that Bridget and Carolyn truly cared about finding the right place for our family. Bridget and Carolyn earned our trust and respect, and we recommend them without any reservation.
Lauren Larsen, Buyer (February 3, 2017):
Great knowledge of the area! Bridget was my agent and she is very familiar with the area as well as many of the listing agents and local businesses that you may be enlisting or coordinating with after or during the purchase of your property. Very responsive! Any time I had questions or comments Bridget responded promptly, it didn't matter how silly or small the request it was treated as an important one. Accommodating! She is also very understanding of the time constraints on my schedule whether it was me being a little late or having to fit in multiple properties in one day. Fun! Since you end up spending so much time with your realtor and they are the person helping you find the house you are going to call home I found that Bridget's technical knowledge was just as important and her fun upbeat personality, her superb whit and magnetic charm.
Glenn and Rita Roberts, Buyers and Sellers (February 1, 2017):
My wife and I have bought and sold approximately 15 homes over the last thirty plus years and have never had an agent like Bridget. We contacted her when we were looking to sell our existing home and buy our retirement home on Satellite Beach. Bridget had us look at several before settling on the one we ended up purchasing. She knew what we wanted (and what we didn't) and made sure we weren't contacted unless a home met our wants and needs. On the purchase and sale of both homes she was incredible. She's an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable agent who had our best interests in mind through every aspect sale, purchase and both closings...... Thanks Bridget!
Todd and Denise Bergman, Buyers (December 8, 2016):
Carolyn and her team were excellent throughout the process of buying a lot and the initial stages of the building process (we're in the initial stages now). Carolyn attended every meeting with the builder and helped to guide us through the selection and design process. She always answered her phone/emails promptly. Her assistant was always on top of important dates and kept us informed along the way. If you are looking for someone who makes this their career instead of a part-time job then look no further.
Robert and Toni Schweiger, Sellers (November 21, 2016):
Bridget and Jen did a great job of listing and selling my rental home in Montecito. From the very beginning they were on top of everything and were quick to respond to the little things that popped up. The closing was a pleasure and took no time at all because the girls had everything ready. Our hats off to Bridget and Jen.
Scott and Jessica Wilson, Buyers (October 22, 2016):
Carolyn and Bridget were instrumental in helping my family purchase our new home. They made the entire process so straight forward and simple that I feel a bit spoiled compared to some of the home buying stories I have heard from friends and family. Everything was smooth sailing from our multiple walk-throughs, the initial offer, negotiations, and closing. The only issue during the process was that we were unfortunate to have our close date right in the middle of Hurricane Matthew. The storm forced us to change all of our plans at the last minute and put us at risk of losing the home. Carolyn handled the entire situation with ease. She kept all parties informed and on point throughout the storm and we ended up closing the next business day. Even after closing on the house, Carolyn has kept in contact with us to make sure we are settled in. She has been an incredible resource to us with her extensive local knowledge and by connecting us with some equally qualified vendors. Carolyn also sent us unsolicited recommendations for some local vegetarian restaurants :) which truly demonstrates her attention to detail and the level of service she has provided our family. We will be recommending Carolyn and Bridget to everyone we know :)
Marilyn and Tim Jollon, Buyers (October 10, 2016):
My husband and I closed on our new home this morning. From the beginning of our search, Carolyn and Bridget focused on what we were looking for. They were patient and listened to what we wanted and what we needed. They never tried to steer us to anything that was out of our price point and never once did we doubt that they had our best interests in mind. Because we live in NY, most of our communication was through phone and e mail contact and we rarely waited very long for a response to an inquiry. I always have felt that you can judge a business by the quality of the people they work with. From the bank, to the Property inspector, to the Title Company we were guided through the lengthy process of new home ownership. It has been a pleasure working with this wonderful team and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new home.
Becky Schwartz and Tom Edwards, Buyers (September 4, 2016):
This is our fifth house purchase and without question the best experience we have ever had. The level of service, professionalism, warmth, depth and breadth of knowledge have been unsurpassed. Not just our realtor, Carolyn, but Bridget Sentz, her partner and their Client Services Coordinator, Jen Conrad -- the entire team was amazing. They provided information, advice and support. Above and beyond the actual search, negotiation and purchase, they have assisted our out-of-state move with homeowner's insurance quotes (a big deal in coastal Florida), scheduling and supervising carpet cleaning and travertine refinishing, provided information on local utilities and various other details of immense use and assistance to us coming from out of state. Carolyn's expertise and the team's assistance have made a complicated and potentially anxiety-provoking purchase and move process, one we could accomplishment with confidence that we will have no regrets.
Luke and Lalia Barnes, Sellers (August 30, 2016):
Update: We just hired this team to sell our house because we trust them and their abilities. They were able to sell our house in just 1 day...and well over appraised value too. Do not hesitate to hire these ladies. They will bend over backwards in order to make sure you are taken care of. From 2 years ago: My wife and I worked closely with Carolyn Smith on the purchase of our very own home. We were very particular about our "wish list" and Carolyn made sure to show us tons of houses without making us feel like we were being tiresome. She is a professional through and through. Her expertise is not limited to real estate, as she has extensive knowledge of construction as well. We really felt as though our concerns were her concerns. She would never settle for second best. Thank you Carolyn for making our first home-buying experience a fantastic one!
Deborah Gaw, Buyer (August 16, 2016):
Very helpful while I was living in another state with the search of a home in FL, the purchasing process and referrals for services that I inquired about. Once I got to Florida I continued to get the great professional support and would strongly recommend them to others.
Alex and Miha Mares, Buyers (August 11, 2016):
We had the best experience with this team! They are knowledgeable and professional. They made our move from out of state so smooth! Bridget helped us to find the right home for us. Thanks Bridget and Jen!
Megan and John Roberts, Buyers (August 4, 2016):
Bridget helped us find our new home in Melbourne. She educated us about things to consider when buying a home in Florida, recommended outstanding professionals when we needed services, and made the whole process go smoothly from beginning to end. She was available on our schedule (with a baby with unpredictable nap times) and when she had a conflict for a house we wanted to see quickly, set us up to see the property with another member of her team (which worked great for us.) She became familiar with what we were looking for, and when we found the right house she knew as well as we did that it was the right one. We couldn't be happier.
Jeremy and Amanda Anderson, Sellers (August 3, 2016):
My wife and I worked with both Carolyn and Bridget, as well as their Client Services Coordinator Jen, during the purchase and then later sale of our first home. The experience was fantastic for both, with all three of them being very helpful and timely in their responses to questions or concerns. We spent the majority of our time working directly with Carolyn and found her to be extremely helpful and always very positive! She was willing to keep looking until we were able find the best possible property match and, then later, obtain the best possible offer! In fact, we enjoyed working with her so much that she is also our realtor for the purchase of our new property!
John and Bev Frannea, Sellers (August 1, 2016):
Well organized and effective organization. Excellent relationships with appraisers, title companies and inspectors. Our contract was signed the first week of listing and closed on date in original contract. We have bought and sold homes everywhere we lived in the USA and Bridget and Carolyn are the best we have ever worked with.
Scott and Beth Shelby, Buyers (August 1, 2016):
This is our second time working with Bridget & Carolyn. First time they sold our house quickly, second time we bought a house. Once again we were extremely pleased! We were relocating back to the area and Bridget patiently advised and helped us find the perfect house even though we were 7 hours away. As always Bridget is honest, direct and really knows the area. She always has her client's best interest in mind, plus she is always a phone call or text away day or night!! I strongly recommend this team to help you find or sell your house!
Alastair Burrows and Dana Roth, Buyers (July 28, 2016):
My Experiences with Carolyn Smith and Jen Conrad were in short 'AMAZING'! I am somewhat new to the house buying experience and Carolyn and her team walked me through every step of the process explaining in detail what needed to happen. They were always available on a moments request and would respond to my calls and emails immediately! They effectively negotiated a reduction in my closing costs and set realistic goals for closing the deal. My wife and I would not own this property if it wasn't for Carolyn and Jen!
Edwin and Lydia Carlson, Buyers (July 4, 2016):
Carolyn and her team were amazing!! Everyone was so nice and they were very quick to respond to all of our questions. As first time home buyers we had a lot and Carolyn didn't mind explaining everything we were doing and signing. Carolyn really made sure we were getting the best deal and she would fight hard for what we wanted and needed for the home. My husband and I knew when we saw our home for the first time that we had to have it and Carolyn worked hard into the night to get our offer in that same day. It also really helped that her husband, Bentley Smith, works for Everbank and since we were using them as our lender we were able to get everything done pretty quick. At closing it was great to have Bentley and one of Carolyn's team member, Taylor, there to help us understand everything we were signing again and the whole process took less than an hour! Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better experience and will definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a home. We would love to work with her again in the future for any of our home buying/selling needs.
Jim and Brenda Williams, Buyers (July 1, 2016):
How lucky we were to find Carolyn Smith! She promptly responded to our initial contact--setting up viewings of several properties within days! Carolyn is professional, knowledgeable about construction, financing, legal matters, neighborhoods, and other aspects that are invaluable to a buyer. Her personable and jovial demeanor, along with extraordinary patience, helped us feel comfortable in our search for the perfect property. Her assistant, Jen, is the best! From inquiry to closing, you can't beat the Coastal Estate Team!
Neil and Dael Bennett, Buyers (June 8, 2016):
I am more than happy to provide a Zillow review because it was the wonderful Zillow reviews that led me to Bridget and Carolyn in the first place! My husband and I worked primarily with Bridget, and subsequently Jen, their Client Services Coordinator, and I can't say enough about what a great experience we had buying our home in Melbourne with the help and guidance of their team. Bridget's vast knowledge of the area and the homes in that area, in addition to her no nonsense approach made it an absolute pleasure to work with her in finding the perfect home for our family. In addition, once the offer was accepted, Jen's knowledge, assistance and willingness to do absolutely anything made the whole process effortless on our part. We could not have asked for more, and this was without a doubt our best experience buying or selling a home (this is number three for us). I would recommend Bridget and Carolyn without reservation to anyone thinking of buying or selling in the Brevard area.
Amit & Ravpreet Bedi, Buyers (June 1, 2016):
After working with three different realtors and losing one house I really liked, one day I called Bridget and happy then after. We searched for houses for three consecutive weekends morning 9:00 am until 5:00 pm. Bridget was very honest and never pushed us, she encouraged us to listen to our inner instinct. The hunt was mutual effort, sometimes she use to send us list and sometimes we use to tell her our list. I am very impressed with her planning to visit house, we never took u-turns to go back and forth from one area to another. Her planning helped us to cover 7-8 houses a day. In the process she educated us by telling pros and cons of each house. I am also thankful to her for being honest and not being pushy at any time. It was after three weekends we decided to buy newly built house and decided to go with Viera Builders, which was dream but we had to stretch our pockets for it and was worth doing so. We were able to make this decision because of the knowledge we gained from Bridget during our hunting process. She always (99% of time) picked our phone regardless of time, and sometimes (1% of time) when she was not able to receive our call she would get back to us before our next call to her. Bridget was physically present in all of our meeting with builder, her presence and her comments in design meeting, sales meeting, and landscaping meeting made BIG impact. She would talk at right time and thus helped us get most value out of our investment. To summarize, it was wonderful working with her, we were educated while having fun. Working with Bridget and Viera Builders my experience with building my very first home was full of fun and laughter. I would recommend Bridget because of her attitude, work ethic, knowledge, honesty and her efficiency. Thank you Bridget for helping us build our very first home. God Bless You!!!
Brett Bordwine, Seller and Buyer (May 16, 2016):
Bridget is a true professional. I have known her for years and would only use her for my housing needs. She is knowledgeable, professional, honest, and trustworthy. I would recommend Bridget for anyone who is looking to sell or buy a new home.
Mike & Laura Manlove, Buyers (May 16, 2016):
Bridget was highly recommended to us when we were looking for a realtor. She is well-connected in the community to the various players in the real estate industry- she provided us great contacts to use in prepping our house for listing, and when we were looking to buy, she spent time listening to our needs and honed in on exactly what fit our criteria. Great communication, and she worked very hard to make sure we got what we wanted. Couldn't have asked for a better agent!
Josh Davis, Buyer (May 5, 2016):
Carolyn is an amazing Realtor. Around the clock she answered my questions and updated me on properties. She took extensive note on what I was looking for and didn't try to sell me on a house that I didn't fit in. She is honest when she thinks a house is overpriced and seemed to care about getting the right house for me and not just A house for me. I went to Carolyn because she was recommended to me and I can see why. I have recommended her to all I find in the market for homes.
Shirley Eiting, Seller (May 4, 2016):
From the beginning, the whole group was there for me as I struggled to get the house in order to sell, as well as emotionally making this decision! I would definitely recommend them to sell your house, as well as purchasing one!
Andrew Kom and Andrea Raff, Buyer (May 4, 2016):
My fiancé and I were extremely impressed by Carolyn's knowledge of the housing market in the area. She was very patient and polite and also honest when a house we were looking at would not be a good investment for us. Beyond that even, Carolyn had a wide range of knowledge and a huge network of people to recommend for just about anything, from tilers to dentists. She has connections just about everywhere!! Last thing I want to mention is just how much passion Carolyn has in her job. I say this, because we never felt like just another sale. We really felt like she wanted to get us a house we were happy with. She is a fantastic realtor, and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Peter Campbell and Birgitta Hedin, Buyer (May 3, 2016):
Bridget and her staff helped us purchase a property from long distance. They have excellent knowledge of the Florida real estate market as well as contacts for utilities, insurance, contractors, and anyone you may need to renovate a property.
Monika Diaz, Buyer (April 25, 2016):
Carolyn Smith was truly a blessing to work with. I purchased a new home and as you may know, construction is always behind. However, no matter how stressed I became, Carolyn kept her cool. She was always diligent in following through and pressing on the home builder to meet deadlines. I would recommend her to everyone. She's an angel to work with and very knowledgeable.
Buddy and Erma Williams, Buyer (April 11, 2016):
Bridget was the perfect match for us in looking for a home here. Having lived and worked here for years Bridget certainly knows the area. We knew we wanted to locate in the area but location and type home was open for us. Bridget was patient and showed us areas and different home styles until she was very knowledgeable of our likes and dislikes. The day we walked in this home and Bridget saw the look my wife had she knew this was it. She knew property values and helped establish an "offer number" for the home, as well as the furniture in it which was also for sell. We could not be happier with the results! The closing process was almost nonexistent. Jen, the office assistant, obtained insurance quotes and all details necessary for the closing process. I believe she provided everything but the money necessary for the purchase. My wife and I will use Bridget and her team for any future real estate needs we may have and highly recommend them for your needs also!
Lindsey Hollister, Buyer (March 18, 2016):
Carolyn was a true blessing to me in helping me find and secure the perfect home for me and my daughter! I cannot emphasize enough how comfortable she made the entire process. Her knowledge, organization, caring nature, and attention to detail made the stressful task of home hunting and buying not only a pleasant experience, but one that I knew she had me and my family's best interests in mind. Carolyn does a wonderful job blending professionalism with caring personalization. She is truly invested in finding what you want, ensuring it is a smart decision for your personal situation, and is patient throughout the process. Carolyn was very easy to get in touch with for questions and assistance beyond expectation, and always quick to respond. Although I feel I am in my forever home now, there is no question that Carolyn is my first call if I ever need to make another move in real estate. As a single mom and a person totally naïve to all aspects of the home buying process, I cannot emphasize enough that Carolyn was truly an angel sent to me to look after my best interests and facilitate in the purchase of the perfect home for my daughter and me.
Lisa Liberman, Buyer (March 18, 2016):
What a wonderful, stress-free home buying experience, thanks to Bridget and her team! They were always one step ahead of me and did their best to ensure a positive experience! I highly recommend Bridget if you want to get the most out of selling or buying a property! She really is extremely knowledgeable about real estate and kept me calm during a potentially stressful time.
Justin and Christie Lynes, Buyer (March 16, 2016):
Carolyn and her team provided a truly positive home buying experience for our family. Throughout the entire process she was in communication with us no matter the time of day ensuring we had the most up-to-date information at all times. No matter the obstacles Carolyn and her team worked to overcome whatever was thrown in their way to ensure we were satisfied and happy in the end. She consistently went above and beyond what we would have expected an agent to do for us. Her genuine persona and passion for her craft continues to shine brightly even past our closing day. At the end of the day, we can truly say Carolyn is our friend and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for their next home.
Jaclyn Schreiber, Buyer (March 15, 2016):
Carolyn is an outstanding realtor, negotiator, and problem solver, and I recommend her to anyone in search of a home. She's knowledgeable, quick and responsive, handles issues like a professional, and takes very good care of her customers. She's very personable and does whatever she can to satisfy a soon-to-be home owner, before and after closing. I was extremely lucky to have her team find me a forever home!
Martha Flynn, Buyer (March 15, 2016):
Bridget has a marching army at the ready who helped get me to closing without a hitch. She is very knowledgeable of the beachside area and very experienced with the strategies required to close the deal.
Brianna P., Buyer and Seller (January 18, 2016):
We used Bridget and Carolyn for the purchase of our first home. We loved the experience so much that we contacted them again to sell the same home to move out of state. Their extensive knowledge of the area is more than we could've asked for. Bridget has been available 24/7 for any last minute questions or concerns we have had. She has handled more than she is required to for us to make our move easier. The thing I love most about her is the genuine care and hard work she has put forth. She has taken the whole process as serious as if she were selling her own home. She has a great personality, and she can get the job done while looking out for her customers' best interests.
John J, Buyer (December 19, 2015):
Bridget fielded our phone call, agreed to meet us and begin showing us homes just a few hours after the first call, and understood very quickly our needs as buyers. She identified several potential homes. Most importantly, she was extremely professional in helping us understand the local real estate market and complete the transaction.
Robert & Patricia H, Seller (December 15, 2015):
Carolyn and Bridget are the consummate professionals. They are very hard working and very knowledgeable in all aspects of the market. They use very forward thinking tools to market and sell properties. They have a wonderful asset in their office assistant Jen. This is a winning team and they are very deserving of success. We recommend them very highly without reservation.
Steve L, Buyer and Seller (November 3, 2015):
Carolyn and Bridget were fantastic to work with. Their knowledge of the local real estate market was very helpful to us. I would recommend them to all buyers and sellers, we used them for both entities. What was most impressive of the entire experience was the complete service level from start to finish. Questions and answers were always timely and we were never left wondering of the next step. They are both very professional.
Dru L, Buyer (October 30, 2015):
If you are looking for an agent to hold together a deal and get it to closing through many obstacles - this is your team. With no plans of moving, saw a house on Zillow above our price range and in a different county that was just perfect for us. Bridget educated us about the neighborhood and town, then negotiated a price both parties were comfortable with. She assisted us in finding a realtor to sell our home, providing us invaluable advice throughout the process, even contacting our listing agent to offer assistance when complications arose. She was available 24/7. Her professionalism, knowledge, patience, along with her never ending positive attitude is exceptional.
Terry D, Seller (October 28, 2015):
This was the most amazingly positive and proficient team to deal with. Everything was done with unbelievable ease. Bridget's local knowledge of the area as well as every aspect of the waterfront value was spot on. As sellers, we were impressed with the next to immediate delivery and constant flow of buyers. Most importantly, were under contract within a week at a very agreeable price. Bridget was present for all of the necessary inspections and appraisals and made it extremely easy for us to close the sale. Carolyn was also available and extremely professional whenever we needed her. Jen was very punctual with all of the necessary documents and helped schedule our appointments without missing a thing. I would highly recommend the team of true experts in their field.
Katie S, Buyer (October 15, 2015):
Bridget Sentz is a very connected, responsive, and thoughtful agent. She worked diligently for my family to find the property that best fit our needs and desires. She was able to deliver what others before had not. Working with her was a fantastic experience and my family will choose to work with her again when it is time to buy or sell.
Tricia E, Seller (October 14, 2015):
Bridget is a very personable and professional real estate agent. She is assertive, detail-oriented and very knowledgeable about the housing market. She was especially knowledgeable about the prior listings in the subdivision where I was selling my house. I definitely would recommend her to my friends and should I buy or sell property in the future, would hire her again.
Chris S, Buyer (October 5, 2015):
Bridget and everyone that worked with her was top notch! She was on top of new listings and got us showings fast which was key in today's market where inventory is low. Highly recommend!!
Elizabeth T, Seller (October 1, 2015):
Bridget Sentz has been very professional, knowledgeable, and responsive during the sale of our home, and currently with the purchase of our new home and investment properties. It's been great working with Bridget Sentz and Carolyn Smith and highly recommend their services.
Maryann R, Buyer (September 23, 2015):
Bridget and her team went beyond the necessary Real Estate Agent requirements to find us our Beach side home. She was very patient with us and listened to all of our needs and wants in our dream home especially since we were communicating from thousands of miles away! We love our new home and we are grateful for all of her help in finding it. Trust Bridget to find your dream home too!!
Diane D, Buyer (September 17, 2015):
Great experience working with Bridget and Carolyn. Very helpful throughout the process of purchasing our second home in Florida. Will use them again.
Michelle C, Seller (September 16, 2015):
I contacted Carolyn Smith about selling my father's house following his death. My decision to contact her was based primarily on the positive experience a friend had when Carolyn was the seller's agent for a house they were buying. I was impressed with how quickly she responded to meet with me, explain the process, and handle every aspect of the sale. It was evident she knew the market. Carolyn remained in communication with me timely and appropriately so I always knew what was happening. She valued my input and accepted recommendations I made. When she was busy with other matters, others on her team ensured that anything I needed to know or actions I needed to take were communicated. You can trust them.
Linda G, Buyer (September 16, 2015):
I communicated with other agents prior to my move to Florida, but after meeting Carolyn, I knew I had found a true professional. She steered me away from properties I was initially interested in by sharing her knowledge about their history. Being honest and upfront was more important than just making the sale. What really impresses me is the support I am still receiving - after the sale!
Neena S, Buyer (August 17, 2015):
We are not easily pleased people. As a matter of fact, we have several friends in the area that are real estate agents but we didn't want to work with them for fear it might ruin our friendships. We found Carolyn on the Internet and couldn't believe how lucky we were. She was so amazing. More than we could have hoped for. Bridget, Carolyn, Jen ... their whole team were top notch and super knowledgeable about the area. You can't go wrong with them!!
Flicka P, Seller (August 12, 2015):
Working with Carolyn Smith and Bridget Sentz was a true pleasure. Their experience in the local real estate market and the escrow process was impressive, and their negotiating expertise helped us considerably. In addition to prompt, clear communication, and high integrity, they were a delight to work with. We enthusiastically recommend them to sell your home.
Greg B, Seller (July 17, 2015):
We just closed on our house. Carolyn was very professional, proactive, knowledgeable, and, together with her team, provided unparalleled support. The whole process went smoothly and respected all time schedules. We would highly recommend Carolyn Smith and Bridget Sentz, and will most definitely call on their services again for future real estate transactions.
Kenny K, Buyer (July 1, 2015):
I used Bridget to buy a home. She was a true professional and responded to me always in a timely manner. She knows the area very well and helped me each step of the buying process. She made what should be stressful process very easy and simple. I would recommend her to anyone buying a home. Her assistant Jen was also amazing. She helped to map out the timeline and aided in a very smooth and easy closing.
Robin K, Buyer (June 21, 2015):
Bridget is amazing. She worked with me every step of the way. She was very prompt in answering all my questions. A true professional and kind lady. Her assistant Jen has also been amazing. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this team.
Leslie M, Buyer & Seller (April 30, 2015):
We have had a total of 3 transactions with Bridget and Carolyn and highly recommend them to our family and friends. Bridget went above and beyond to find us a fantastic home in our most favored beach-side neighborhood. She also got us top dollar on the sale of our previous home. The team handled every minor detail that came up during both transactions seamlessly. We will absolutely do business with these amazing ladies again!
Gary R, Buyer (April 12, 2015):
We can't thank Carolyn enough for her expertise in helping us find a vacation home in Cocoa Beach, FL. She was very patient with us and always had our best interest in mind. We would highly recommend her for your real estate needs.
Maureen R, Buyer (April 3, 2015):
Carolyn and Bridget are the best agents in the area. We worked mostly with Carolyn and she was absolutely fantastic. She knows the area and showed us around as we were new to this area. She looks out for you and has excellent negotiation skills. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs to buy or sell.
Jen O, Buyer (March 11, 2015):
We highly recommend Carolyn and Bridget. They along with Jen, the client services coordinator are excellent. Carolyn worked with us on finding a rental and she was the first person we thought of when we wanted to buy a home. She goes above and beyond in all areas of finding the perfect home for people. We have referred her to many friends who have also been thrilled with her service. She knows everything about the area and is a true professional in every aspect. Carolyn took her time and found us the perfect home. We are only sad we won't get to see her as much but know we will keep in touch.
Jay W, Buyer (March 1, 2015):
Typically buying/selling is one of the worst stresses to experience. Not so with Bridget and her team. She was not only low pressure, but highly instinctual of what we were looking for in the way of a 2nd home, beachfront, and showed us properties we would like, not what she could try and sell. Words like honest, pleasant, responsive, direct, loyal, and customer oriented just begin to describe her. When small challenges arose with the seller, Bridget jumped in to smooth things over insulating us from any unnecessary stress, but still keeping us informed. If/when we decide to seek new property(ies) in the future on Space Coast, we will not hesitate to call Bridget Sentz. We recommend her to anyone wishing to have a quality real estate agent.
Bev Y, Buyer (March 1, 2015):
In 32 years of buying and selling real estate, we have never experienced the level of professionalism and attention to details as we did with this team. We had been looking for a home in the area for several months and were on their mailing list for updates on properties that fit our goals. While visiting our daughter during Christmas, the perfect house became available and we made our offer. Even during the holidays, Bridget and her team worked to get our inspections handled before returning to NC. Jen was extremely detailed and efficient to get everything to us for the closing. This team knows the area, they have a great team of resources, and offers great advice. They really take care of their clients.
Ranell S, Buyer (February 17, 2015):
Carolyn was instrumental in providing information regarding our new home construction and purchase, especially regarding new construction. Her knowledge of the local area and expected expenses for everything from taxes to insurance was extremely helpful as well.
Brenda D, Seller (January 31, 2015):
We were very impressed with both Bridget and Carolyn at our initial meeting, with the amount of detail they presented - they obviously did their research! We selected their team to list our home (a corporate relocation). The listing was wonderful - the description painted pictures with words, and the photos were gorgeous. We had 2 offers within 3 days, both above list. After the acceptance of one of the offers, there were a few issues that threatened the transaction. Carolyn navigated those with thoughtfulness, fairness, and professionalism. Should we have need of their services again in the future, we will definitely contact this great team.
Phil D, Seller (January 13, 2015):
I have had numerous experiences buying and selling residential properties. Working with Bridget and Carolyn has been the smoothest and fastest I have experienced. They work as a team but you always feel like you have personal attention, regardless of who you are working with at the time. Completing this transaction was easy with just about everything done electronically which was very important for me as I am remote and travel weekly for my job. I highly recommend Bridget and Carolyn.
Ken S, Seller (December 23, 2014):
We had our house on the market with another agency - after 4 months we switched to Bridget and Carolyn - what a difference. Great advice and great service - they were not afraid to tell us some things we might not want to hear - but they know how to sell a house!! They were also a pleasure to work with, went out of their way to accommodate our schedules and did whatever it took to make the sale. We recommend Bridget and Carolyn without any reservations.
Kristin L, Buyer (December 12, 2014):
The Coastal Estate Team was amazing to work with in the recent purchase of our new Fla beach-house & we highly recommend them!! Everything was `top notch` from their helpful web site, to their professionalism and wealth of knowledge of the area, which helped us immensely when relocating from Ga. Carolyn Smith was always available to answer any questions & worked around the clock guiding us every step of the way in the finding & purchasing our perfect Fla home. We are extremely grateful to Carolyn, Bridget and Jen for all of their help through this process. Not only are Carolyn & Bridget extremely professional and knowledgeable agents, but they are wonderfully kind too and made the `house hunting` process lots of fun!! Thank You ladies so very much!!
Zlatka K, Buyer (November 11, 2014):
We had a house built in Fairway Lakes while still living in NYC. We didn't know what to expect since it was the first time we were having a house built and Bridget helped us tremendously throughout the whole process. She was with us at every step, navigating the sometimes difficult process of building a home, checking on the construction progress for us and helping us make the right decisions. From the very beginning we were impressed with her impeccable professionalism and expert knowledge of the market. She is very responsive and always helps so graciously that you feel like your needs and concerns are important. We couldn't thank Bridget enough for everything she did for us and recommend her very highly. And, as a bonus, she is a pleasure to be around.
Roger O, Buyer (November 3, 2014):
We recently purchased property and Bridget was our agent. We will also utilize Bridget's extensive knowledge and expertise as we contract to build on that property. We are repeat customers and have always been treated with extreme professionalism, when we list our existing home we will be utilizing the team of Bridget and Carolyn. We would recommend anyone with any real estate needs to utilize this sales team.
Allen K, Buyer (October 27, 2014):
Bridget and her team were great to work with. They made a very difficult cross-country move very easy for us. We would recommend her and her team to anyone interested in buying or selling!
Carolyn C, Buyer (September 18, 2014):
My husband and I just purchased a house in Florida. Bridget Sentz and Carolyn Smith were a joy to work with. They found us our dream home. These girls are very professional and responsive. We would highly recommend them if you are looking to buy or sell your home.
John B, Buyer (September 16, 2014):
We couldn't be happier using the Coastal Estate Team when purchasing our new home. Our agent Bridget was extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly what our needs were while searching. She helped us negotiate a price based on current home sales. She pointed out the pluses and minuses of the house we purchased and was there for the home inspection and walk through. While we were out of the state she even handled our closing with us only having to sign some documents and send them down. I never had to wait if I had any questions, her assistant Jen was always in contact with us and was a great resource. All and all I couldn't be happier and can only say that if you’re thinking of buying a house don’t call anyone else.
Luke B, Buyer (September 3, 2014):
My wife and I worked closely with Carolyn Smith on the purchase of our very own home. We were very particular about our "wish list" and Carolyn made sure to show us tons of houses without making us feel like we were being tiresome. She is a professional through and through. Her expertise is not limited to real estate, as she has extensive knowledge of construction as well. We really felt as though our concerns were her concerns. She would never settle for second best. Thank you Carolyn for making our first home-buying experience a fantastic one!
Sharon R, Buyer (August 27, 2014):
What more can we say about the Coastal Estate Team, especially Carolyn Smith and Jen. I selected their real estate team based on the professionalism of their website and boy was I not disappointed. From looking at homes, making an offer and closing on our dream home, the process could not have been more pleasant. Carolyn's wealth of knowledge about the area was vital in the selection of our home. After the first day of viewing homes, she knew exactly what we wanted in a home and where we wanted to live. She knew this before we did! And this woman never stops working for you. She was absolutely amazing. After we were in contract, then Jen took over. She made buying a home in another state effortless. We were provided with all the information we needed to set up our utilities, cable, insurance, etc. Because we closed from New York, Carolyn did our final walk through. I really can't say enough about this team. The entire experience was awesome from beginning to end. Thank you ladies.
Robert A, Buyer (August 25, 2014):
We had the pleasure of Bridget and Carolyn show us homes in Viera and we bought our home in 5 days !!! They are a great team and know their business well! They guided us through every step of the way!!
Simeon G, Buyer (August 20, 2014):
We worked with Carolyn Smith to purchase a vacation condo in Cocoa beach. We are new to Florida market but have worked with many real estate agents in different area of the country. In our experience Carolyn has been one of the best agents we have had to work with. She is very knowledgeable about the market, always responsive, on top of everything, and very skillful in negotiation process. She also was great help in finding local services necessary during any real estate transaction. Which is very valuable when you are not local to the area. We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell real estate in the area. And a special thank you to her excellent assistant, Jen. She was great in assisting us with many questions we had.
Gary W, Seller and Buyer (August 9, 2014):
Bought and sold a house back to back both over 3500 ft2. They do it right first class the whole way. Both buyers and sellers love the attention they were given. Appointments were made on time the smoothest sales I've ever had.
Angie S, Seller (August 6, 2014):
Bridget is top notch....a true professional who will get the job done. Would recommend her implicitly. Having sold four homes in last 10 years must say this process was a breeze. Bridget is quick to respond to questions or concerns.
Robert L, Buyer (August 6, 2014):
Bridget gave us great communication during the whole process. Retuned texts and calls promptly. We closed on our home in about 2 weeks. Smooth as silk. I would recommend Bridget for all of your realty needs.
Cathy F, Seller (July 25, 2014):
Bridget, Carolyn, and Jen are very knowledgeable and resourceful. Bridget listed and sold our house in just a few days, and was very flexible and accommodating. She knows the area extensively, and knows how to market and sell properties. She literally bent over backwards getting our house sold through our relocation company! We highly recommend this team.
Charlie P, Buyer (July 25, 2014):
Having worked in the new home building industry locally for over a decade I know firsthand the qualities necessary for a great real estate agent. Bridget's extensive market knowledge and determination coupled by her follow-up and attention to detail make her a leader in the industry. I have worked with Bridget on several transactions in the past and her aggressiveness and tenacity has always created a reassuring comfort level that she always has her clients best interest at hand. I recommend Bridget to all of my friends and clients, as I know they are in good hands when working with her. You won't go wrong in making the decision to use Bridget for any of your real estate needs.
Joan M, Seller (June 29, 2014):
Carolyn and Bridget are true professionals who know and understand the business inside out. Their attention to detail is amazing-no stone is left unturned once they become part of your team. These people are working the clock 24-7 to either sell your house or to find exactly what you are looking to purchase. I could not give them a higher endorsement.
Todor T, Seller (June 26, 2014):
Carolyn, Bridget and the supporting folks at the Coastal estate team were very helpful in the sale of our property in Melbourne, FL. We were in FL during the whole process but both Carolyn and Bridget were there to answer questions and show the property. After only two weeks the house was off the market and closing process was very simple and effortless on your part. Carolyn and Bridget are knowledgeable of the housing market and suggested a sale price that was right on and thus the quick sale. I would recommend the Coastal estate team. Thank you.
Julie C, Buyer (June 10, 2014):
My husband and I were first time homebuyers and really needed to have our hands held through the process of buying a home. Carolyn took me to every listing in our price range - even if she already knew it was a dump - just to put my mind at ease. When we found the perfect home, she stayed up until midnight on a Sunday night negotiating with a very tough seller. Even after we were under contract, she offered to take me to other listings I had questions about, to help alleviate the small buyer’s remorse I was feeling. Again, as a first time homebuyer, I really needed to see everything with my own eyes. Carolyn's background in the construction industry also helped us because she was able to point out defects and possible problems that we would not have noticed on our own. Our home is perfect for us -- it really could not be any better, and if it wasn't for Carolyn, we would never be here. We were difficult customers to say the least -- but she was always there with a determined and positive attitude. Thanks Carolyn, for all your help!
Kim E, Buyer (May 3, 2014):
I can't say enough great things about everyone that is part of the Coastal Estate Team!! We were relocating from North Carolina to Melbourne and didn't know anything about the city. We weren't sure when we were going to buy since we still had a house in NC but Carolyn still took the time to drive us around all the parts to find out what we liked since Melbourne is so vast. When we were ready to buy the process was a breeze - Carolyn hand selected each property and we ended up with EXACTLY what we wanted and within our budget! She even noticed right before our closing that something was wrong on our HUD and had it fixed - saving us thousands of dollars. Carolyn is extremely detailed, very responsive and by far the best realtor I've ever worked with. When she had a prior engagement once my husband was able to meet with her partner, Bridget, who he said was just as great. We also worked with Jen, who works from the office and she was wonderful and very responsive as well. My husband and I highly recommend the Coastal Estate Team!!!
Chris R, Buyer (March 28, 2014):
My wife and I just completed a home purchase in Viera. We worked extensively with Carolyn and Jen. Carolyn masterfully guided us through the "House Hunter" process and once the wheels were in motion, the support Jen provided was nothing short of awesome. We highly recommend the Coastal Estate Team. It was a pleasure.
Steve G, Buyer (March 26, 2014):
Very professional agents that listened and cared about our requests and needs. We highly recommend them! They have ample experience in this region. They worked hard for us and provided timely information throughout the process. We love our new home!
Eva C, Buyer (March 25, 2014):
Bridget was there for us throughout the entire home buying process. She is very knowledgeable with the area. She answered all of our questions and took care of every issue that came up in a professional manner. We were very pleased with her negotiating skills and we acquired the home for less than we thought we would. We would highly recommend her and her team.
Tracy W, Seller (March 19, 2014):
We found Bridget and Carolyn by researching agents online after we had interviewed two other agents and found them lacking in experience and local real estate knowledge. We were looking for "experts" in our area and we found them in Bridget and Carolyn. We dealt with Carolyn exclusively and she was the ultimate professional in every way in addition to being a very friendly, likable person. She was very helpful throughout the process and we found her to be very knowledgeable and particularly helpful when we moved out of state prior to the closing of our home. She helped to facilitate work that had to be done on the house and kept us informed every step of the way! We would highly recommend Carolyn to help sell or buy a home!
Sandee R, Buyer (February 17, 2014):
Carolyn, Bridget and their team are exceptional! We have met many folks in the business of real estate throughout our years in Florida and truly believe that this Carolyn, Bridget, et al, are one of a kind. Our relocation from Miami Shores to Merritt Island was simply a joy. Our search for real estate in Brevard County began through the internet (doesn't everyone start there?) which led us to their website. We were so very impressed with the site we contacted them and Carolyn responded immediately. What started as a search for a home led to what we hope is a wonderful friendship with these ladies. Our first appointment to view properties in the area resulted in falling in love with the very first house we saw. Carolyn helped us submit an offer, which was accepted. Their team helped us with everything from finding a local moving company, insurance quotes, roofing companies, local business guides, inspection, walk through and closing. Moving is stressful, especially when moving to somewhere that is 'not around the corner', fortunately they were with us every step of the way. We have found what we believe to be our 'forever home' and thank Carolyn, Bridget, Jen and all the team for a wonderful experience. Words alone cannot express our gratitude.
Mary W, Buyer (January 27, 2014):
Bought a house from Bridget and Carolyn last Friday and we're impressed with the professionalism and flexibility this team showed all along the way. Personal attention above and beyond. Every question, need and desire was met with enthusiastic response and a great sense of humor. You will not regret doing business with this team of consummate real estate professionals. THANK YOU for getting us into the last house we will EVER buy!
Deborah C, Buyer (January 13, 2014):
Bridget was very knowledgeable in all aspects of the real estate field, she knew about the construction of the houses, their codes and the type of neighborhood the houses were located in. She was very pro-active in my search for a home in my price range and specifications. I would recommend both Bridget and Carolyn to anyone looking for a home on the beach.
Joey C, Seller and Buyer (January 8, 2014):
Sam and I have been extremely happy with Bridget and Carolyn. They were available 24-7! Couldn't be happier. We have now sold a home and are in the process of buying one with Bridget. She has been diligent and incredible.
Robert P, Seller (January 8, 2014):
I would highly recommend Carolyn and Bridget for your realtor needs. From our first meeting to the closing of our house they were both experts in their fields, highly motivated, friendly and courteous. This is the second time my family has used their services and we have been very satisfied both times. Thanks RE/MAX, Carolyn and Bridget !!!
Nicholas G, Buyer (January 6, 2014):
I NEVER WRITE REVIEWS so take this one seriously! As a first time home buyer I was not sure what I was getting into. I originally chose a realtor who was a family friend and that ended in a mess. One of the worst experiences of my life. I could not understand how people buy houses with all the stress involved. I was ready to give up and just rent, that’s when I met Bridget Sentz. When I met Bridget Sentz I was hesitant about looking for a house again after all the headaches and stress I underwent. I told Bridget about my experience and she assured me things would be different. I told her what my style, price range, and desired square footage was and right away she went to work. It took maybe a week before I found "THE HOUSE". The second I walked in I knew it was the right one. I was NOT shown thousands of houses that I hated. My time was valued and not wasted. When walking into a house I wasn't fond of she knew my thoughts immediately and did not attempt to guilt me into a purchase as some realtors do. Once the house was found she went to work for me again. My house was listed at 275k I bought it for 248k. Enough said, negotiation skills impeccable! Her team made everything so easy for me that buying a house went from the most stressful experience of my life to one of the happiest, 180 degree change! In my line of work when you do something you have to do it right the first time or the consequences are unimaginable. A house is a lifelong investment. If you are going to buy one do it right and get the best, Bridget Sentz. If your experience is half as good as mine was you will be happy with your choice. Good luck!
Richard P, Seller (December 21, 2013):
We followed Bridget and Carolyn's guidelines on upgrading a few things on the house three months before it was actually listed. We had the house listed and started off with a high selling price. We were not getting much activity during the first two weeks, and per their suggestion, we agreed to lower the house to what they felt was a more reasonable price, yet still acceptable to us. They obviously knew the fair market value of our home, because the house sold within less than 60 days of being listed. The entire process of selling our home was seamless and effortless, which is the sign of good professional real estate agents. I highly recommend them.
Dallas and Heidi L, Seller (November 6, 2013):
Carolyn and Bridget handle every aspect of the listing and sale of our home to our complete satisfaction! They were prompt for every face to face meeting from the listing of the property thru the property closing. When my wife, Heidi, or I needed anything they were more than glad to respond. Their advice and guidance were very much appreciated and made us very comfortable with the transaction. Jen Conrad, their office coordinator/assistant, was also helpful to us. We were always kept informed about the status of all aspects of the transaction. Every showing of the property was scheduled in advance and took place as scheduled. If we made a request for assistance for repair items we wanted to have accomplished, they were prompt in contacting the applicable company and having it handled immediately.
Megan and Daniel R, Buyer (November 1, 2013):
Bridget and Carolyn were the listing agents for the home we recently purchased. Our experience with them could not have been better. They explained what we should expect throughout the process and helped us set up insurance. We were very pleased.
David and Tyann F, Buyer (September 13, 2013):
Working with Carolyn and Bridget was like working with family. They worked day and night to find the exact right home for us. They listened to our wants and tailored our home visits to our exact specifications. We felt that we could contact that on any day or at any hour with any type of questions, and we always got answers without delay. They even provided help for us to find every type of assistance we needed during our relocation. They even were a step ahead of us on some issues and sent information before we asked for it. You can NOT go wrong working with these two ladies. Our transactions were flawless.
Janice D, Buyer (September 9, 2013):
These two women listen to what you are looking for and they go out and find you EXACTLY what you want! They are great for buyers who are out of town. Very helpful getting information to you in a timely manner. Worked with title agency to ensure that all paperwork is filed correctly.
Frank W, Buyer (September 3, 2013):
Carolyn, Bridget and Jen were the best. Their patience in helping me find a home was only out done by their professionalism and knowledge. They explained the different areas I was looking in, assisted in financing, and even recommended home inspectors and handymen to get my townhouse looking great. They made everything I needed to do very simple. These 3 are a great team and you would be remiss if you didn't contact them if interested in the Indialantic area. They were simply fantastic.
Leslie M, Buyer (August 20, 2013):
Amazing experience with Bridget, Carolyn, and Jen. I would highly recommend them for their attention to detail and ability to get it done! They helped us to get our dream home and we couldn't be happier.
D. Wood, Buyer (August 7, 2013):
We have bought and sold several homes in FL during our 30 years of marriage, and how I wish we had found Carolyn Smith and her team sooner. They are not only knowledgeable and hard-working, but also kind. Everyone on the team went out of their way to do anything necessary to make our experience easier and better. The service provided was above and beyond my expectations. Response time for any information was always minutes, not hours or days like some agents we have worked with in the past. These are full time professionals who work FOR you every hour of the day and night if necessary. There was a home we were interested in that came back on the market after we had given up on it and Carolyn emailed us at 7:30 am on EASTER Sunday!!! Where do you find service like that? Anyone looking for an agent in their service area can stop looking.
D. Roman, Buyer (July 22, 2013):
Carolyn and Bridget were amazing! Super knowledgeable and were always there to answer our questions. There was never a time we felt alone through our home buying process. They always worked on our behalf and ensured we got the best deal out there! We have and will continue to refer them to friends and family!!!!
T. Morton, Buyer (July 22, 2013):
Carolyn Smith helped my son purchase the house that we are living in now. The time frame on this deal was very tight to get financing set up and to negotiate the winning bid for the house against 5 other bidders. It was so good that one month later one of the other bidders offered a 10% over the selling price to resale to them. They both are a great team and very professional in all that they do.
A. Luqman, Buyer (July 21, 2013):
Carolyn and Bridget helped us find and buy a condo in May 2013 and I highly recommend them. They are very knowledgeable and were very attentive to our needs and preferences. We never felt pressured and it was obvious that they both were looking after our interests and wanted to make sure we bought the right place for us. Even after contract was accepted, they provided a great deal of support in the transition process. They are also very personable and a joy to deal with. They were always available to answer our questions day or night. We would go nowhere else for real estate advice in this area.
Vicki H, Buyer (July 21, 2013):
We worked with the Coastal Estate team last November in Melbourne Beach Florida. We spent close to an entire week with both Bridget and Carolyn viewing properties. They were knowledgeable and helpful beyond words. Their professionalism shined through when we placed an offer on a property that they quickly realized had legal problems associated with it and we were able to withdraw the offer without any problem. Although disappointed, we are extremely grateful for their insight because not long after, a property came on the market which in a matter of days was ours. They are terrific.
Marilyn T, Buyer (July 19, 2013):
We came to know of this real estate team while searching on the internet for a home in Florida (relocating from CNY). Their response was immediate and we quickly developed a nice long distance email relationship. Six months later we were living in our dream home in Melbourne Beach. This would not have been possible without this team's responsiveness and caring professionalism. Being natives of Florida, they know the area well and know their business equally well. They had the ability to sift through the many listings we would send their way with a keen eye - pointing out why a home might not be right for us (including a home that would have car lights shining in our window each night)! We visited 38 homes in a two week timeframe and the rest is history. Their advice during the offer stage was right-on and their follow-up throughout closing was impeccable. They even had great resources to refer us to for mortgage and insurance needs. It was a real pleasure working with this team as they are very patient, friendly, knowledgeable and intuitive. Should we ever decide to move, we know who we'll call on for help!
Robert S, Seller and Buyer (July 18, 2013):
I refer to Bridget and Carolyn as the Dynamic Duo. They were energetic, communicative, and relentless, all with extreme attention to detail. Their preparation behind the scenes and prior to the property going on the market resulted in our home receiving several full price offers on the first day it went on the market. They are the best.
Susan D, Renter (July 18, 2013):
My husband and I dealt with Carolyn (after being referred to her) when searching for a house. She was an exceptional realtor and could not be more pleased with the level of attention she gave us!
Heather H, Buyer (July 18, 2013):
I have bought and sold 4 houses with them. They are absolutely the best! I recommend them all of the time with great confidence. I honestly cannot say enough good things.
Hank M, Buyer (July 6, 2013):
If you want someone that has your best interests in mind, then engage Carolyn and Bridget. Their knowledge of the area and entire process made everything go easily even when unexpected issues arose. This was my 6th purchase and I was definitely impressed with their level of service.
Candy A, Seller (June 30, 2013):
In 2010, we walked into the Real Estate office and lucked out by getting Carolyn to help us! She found us exactly what we wanted. She helped us with local info and details we needed to know moving from up north. Three years later, we called Carolyn to list our place and got a bonus 2-4-1 with Bridget!! They are energetic, efficient, and easy to work with! They are helping our good friends from up north find a home in our area now!!!
Gail V, Seller and Buyer (June 21, 2013):
Very efficient and wonderful with people.
Michael V, Buyer (June 21, 2013):
Bridget was very professional and enjoyable as well as very knowledgeable. We found both Bridget and Carolyn great people with lots of people skills I would recommend them both to anyone looking to buy a house.
Brianna P, Buyer (June 21, 2013):
Bridget & Carolyn were the best realtors. As first time homebuyers, we felt a little overwhelmed. Everyone told us the process was going to be long, annoying, and confusing. However, with Bridget & Carolyn, the whole purchase process was really easy and fast. The very first house the ladies showed us fit our criteria very well. They knew the housing market, they knew facts about the particular house we were interested in, and they helped us get an offer accepted on that very first house within our time frame. They were also helpful with any questions I had - which there were many! I really appreciated everything they did for us.
Sondra B, Buyer (June 21, 2013):
Absolutely cannot give enough of a RAVE REVIEW on Bridget Sentz and Carolyn Smith! Professional, efficient, prompt, knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy, polite. This team is going to sell this town! Adore this duo and wish I could buy a house from them every week!
Amanda A, Buyer (June 14, 2013):
Thank you so much for all of your help in finding us our first home! From going to see multiple homes to answering our million and two questions, you were always so positive and patient! We are so grateful to have had you as our realtor and will gladly recommend you to all of our friends!
Gretchen H, Buyer (May 31, 2013):
We were limited in time looking for a home because we had sold our home and closing date was quickly approaching. Bridget listened to our wish list carefully and showed us this home. We are so pleased with it. I would work with team again if I needed to sell this home.
Angela W, Buyer (May 29, 2013):
I have been working with Carolyn for years. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable and on top of the pulse of the market, but I have never met a realtor with a stronger work ethic. She has always looked out for our best interest while searching for our home. She goes above and beyond, time and time again. I am thankful to have found her!
Chris H, Buyer (May 14, 2013):
What a pleasure it was to work with Bridget and Carolyn on our home search and eventual purchase! We spent a great deal of time searching for the right home and Bridget and Carolyn made sure we saw every home that could potentially meet our needs, even a few before they went on the market! Once we found the right home, they assisted us with some tough negotiations and guided us every step of the way. We cannot thank them enough for their help with the purchase of our new home and we would most definitely give them a 5-star recommendation!
Allie M, Buyer (May 13, 2013):
Carolyn and Bridget are a great team with whom to work. Super responsive to even the littlest of questions and concerns. Carolyn really goes to bat with everyone for you to get you the best deal on everything from insurance to selling price. Has superior knowledge on vendors in the area for any work that needs to be done before or after sale. She continues to be a wealth of knowledge for us and a good friend!
Marcus C, Seller (April 12, 2013):
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the great job you did in selling my home. If you recall, I was a bit hesitant to list my home for sale due to tough market conditions. I was impressed with your thorough marketing presentation for my home, which in large part eliminated my initial concerns. You were certainly proved correct as we had 10 showing on my home within a 3 week period and an offer within six weeks! I will be making a career change shortly, and I can't express my relief in having sold my home for the price I needed. Thank you for making the entire process so easy. Your involvement from beginning to end was much appreciated. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family!
Steven V, Seller and Buyer (March 30, 2013):
Ms. Bridget Sentz has represented me in the purchase and sale of multiple homes over the last four years. Ms. Sentz is definitely results oriented. She attends to details, responds promptly to customer concerns, delivers unwavering loyalty to her clients, handles her transactions with the utmost honesty, takes a proactive position, and commits herself to closing the deal to favor the best interests of her valued client. Ms. Sentz is uncompromising in her dedication to deliver excellence in customer service. I highly recommend Ms. Bridget Sentz to anyone wishing to purchase or sale their home. The customer’s satisfaction is Ms. Sentz passion. Don’t settle for less. You deserve the BEST… Bridget Sentz!!!
Jana P, Buyer (March 25, 2013):
My husband and I were very pleased with Bridget and Carolyn's assistance with our house hunt. From the first, they both did an exceptional job of listening to us and figuring out what we were looking for in our retirement home. Carolyn was super-patient as we toured something like 15 houses in the Melbourne, FL area over one weekend (we made a special trip from Washington DC over a weekend in October). During that weekend, when we learned of a house that was for sale, but not listed, Carolyn jumped into action and we were able to look at the house before we returning home. To make a long story short, we loved that house. My husband and I had many questions before we were ready to make an offer, but both Carolyn and Bridget gathered information and provided counsel that helped us make the decision to buy it. It was definitely the right decision. Now that we have been in the house six months, it really is the perfect house for us. Calling Bridget and Carolyn for help with our home search was one of the smartest things we have ever done. They are wonderful ladies -- smart, kind and endlessly cheerful. Both put in hard work to make our long-distance purchase transaction work. There were some challenges with the seller, but Bridget and Carolyn helped us work through them easily by phone and email. It was a job very well done!
Deborah S, Buyer (March 25, 2013):
Bridget is the most responsive, patient, and reliable Realtor we have ever worked with and we have moved a lot! Her no pressure approach and excellent listening skills made the process smooth and painless for our move from Maryland to Florida. We love our new home. She also did an outstanding job of marketing, listing, pricing, and selling my mom's home within 15 days at the busiest holiday time of year and finding the perfect buyer. She is a true professional in every sense of the word. We will always recommend her to anyone we know who is looking to buy or sell.
Uli W, Seller and Buyer (March 24, 2013):
Ms. Bridget Sentz helped me sell my town home and she achieved a top price for the property. Ms. Sentz is very professional and her staff was great to work with. She hired a photographer and took pictures of my house in an appealing and model looking way. She also helped me finding a new home at a very attractive price. Thank you Bridget. A job well done.
Kari R, Buyer (March 14, 2013):
Thank you for everything, Carolyn! We are so excited and so thankful to you! There will not be a single person that gets by without hearing about our amazing realtor!
Daniel H, Buyer (September 30, 2012):
Carolyn is the best realtor I have dealt with - and I have worked with 7 others over the years on various real estate transactions. Carolyn helped us purchase 2 properties in the Melbourne Beach area in the last 2 years - both with bank financing, a number of fixes on the properties to be completed before closing by the sellers and very tight deadlines. Carolyn fully understood our needs when we were selecting the properties and then put a lot of effort to keep everything on track to a successful closing. She is a top real estate professional and extremely client focused. We are strongly recommending Carolyn to all our friends who buy and sell properties in the area - she is the best!
E. Joiner, Buyer and Seller (September 24, 2012):
We used Carolyn to sell our Melbourne Beach home and then, two years later, purchase a 2nd home. The market being what it was, we knew we wouldn't get our investment back, but wanted to at least get a fair price for our home. Carolyn helped us come up with a reasonable asking price and, though we received several offers from people assuming we were in a desperate situation, Carolyn was able to weed out the people just looking for a steal and bring in a qualified buyer at our asking price. She was professional, energetic and definitely knows her market. When we decided to purchase a 2nd home in the same area, there was no question who we would call.
Marie K, Buyer (August 31, 2013):
Words can't express how much we appreciate the way you've gone above and beyond the call of duty. You stuck with us and kept on looking out for us. I'm not sure how many Realtors would do that for their clients and it shows just how much you care.
Brian L, Seller and Buyer (August 31, 2012):
Carolyn Smith has provided us with the highest level of real estate service we have ever experienced. Carolyn always goes above and beyond what is expected, and is completely committed throughout the whole real estate transaction. Carolyn is a Realtor you can trust, and I would highly recommend her to anyone planning to buy or sell in the Melbourne Beach area.
Marivi W, Buyer (August 31, 2012):
Working with Carolyn was like working with a true friend. She was patient, understanding and we never felt pushed. She got to know us and understand our very special needs. She really looked out for us even when it may not have been to her advantage. She is a local and really knows the area but, she also knows about building structures and the nuts and bolts of a house. Anyone in Brevard County that needs a Realtor for one of the most important decisions one will ever make should contact Carolyn!
Phil J, Buyer (August 31, 2012):
Working with Carolyn was a truly wonderful experience. She is fully competent and professional, always returning calls immediately and taking her time on evenings and weekends to show me houses. Also, she knows the local market very well- something that makes a tremendous difference. She made the entire process easy and fun. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone buying or selling.
Rod N, Buyer (August 29, 2012):
I have worked in Real Estate Investments for over 30 years & Carolyn is one of the few Realtors I can honestly recommend without hesitation. I have done several deals with Carolyn since moving down to Brevard County, including the purchase of my primary residence. Some of the deals have been very complicated short sales that would have never closed without her expertise, integrity, tenacity, & patience. Carolyn is a great Realtor that is very knowledgeable about everything related to Real Estate.
