There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.
So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.
I would be happy to email you additional testimonials if you are interested.
If you’re looking to buy a home or sell a home, I strongly recommend our realtor, Beth Hobart. We just purchased our first home and Beth was there every step of the way. I knew Beth previously because she is a friend, but through this experience I gained a whole new respect for her. She also happens to be an incredible realtor! She listened to us, advised us and taught us a lot about the current house market and negotiated hard on our behalf. She kept constant communication with us and had a great rapport with other agents in the Orlando area. And she made us laugh, which was, at times, much needed. The home buying process is difficult, but Beth and her assistant made this experience as painless as possible. We are incredibly grateful to have had her by our side throughout this process!
Beth Hobart runs a highly professional office. Not only was she well-prepared for our first meeting, she stayed current with market trends as we traversed a very unique real estate market during the summer of 2012. Not only was she successful in selling our home for a nice profit, but she was able to act promptly and efficiently when we found a house to purchase in a different neighborhood that hadn’t even been listed yet. She goes beyond the call of duty and has a passion for her work and her clients that is unmatched in the central Florida market. We can recommend with absolute enthusiasm and conviction.
TIM AND REBECCA, ORLANDO, FL
Added-value, confidence, and commitment are all words to describe Beth Hobart during the recent sale of our home. She made a stress-filled time go smoothly and efficiently that far exceeded the goals that we had laid out at the beginning of the process. She was always there for our questions and very responsive when it came to answering our questions. We look forward to working with her again in the future, and will absolutely recommend her to friends and family.
DENNY & DANA, ORLANDO, FL
Beth Hobart is not only an efficient, responsive and smart realtor – she is also a caring person who takes into account individuals’ unique circumstances to help expedite whatever process they are undergoing. In our case, we had less than four months to execute a short sale and move out of our then-rental home to our first “purchased” home. As first time homebuyers, we were pretty clueless. Beth was patient, thoughtful and took time to explain the entire process to us. She understood our need for constant, clear communication and was in contact no less than once a day. Her persistence and industry knowledge were an asset for completing the transaction quickly and at the end, her representation of both the seller’s and buyers’ sides were no less than superb. We’ve already recommended her to our family members and will continue referring people to her until she says “uncle!”
MELVIN F., LONGWOOD, FL
Let me start this by saying that I highly recommend that if anyone needs to sell their house in a quick timeframe, your best bet is to partner up with Beth Hobart.
Here’s my reason: I had contacted a moving company to give me an estimate for relocating my furniture/belongings to Myrtle Beach, SC. I told the Moving Specialist that I hadn’t even gotten a real estate agent on board yet to sell my house. The man went to his car and came back with Beth Hobart’s business card and said, “I suggest you call her.” This was April 15th and I needed to be in Myrtle Beach, SC to start a new job on May 3rd. I didn’t call Beth until Wednesday, 4/21, after I went to Myrtle Beach for the weekend, 4/17&18 to find an apartment. On the 22nd Beth emailed me some like homes that had sold in my neighborhood. I was the one that procrastinated because I had a garage sale on Saturday. Beth came to my house on Sunday, 4/25, where we decided on a listing price. She even helped me move some things out of the way so she could get some pictures. She was so accommodating, as she knew I was trying to do all this stuff on my own.
I was still having some repairs done to my house after I had already moved out on April 27th. The house was supposed to list on Monday, May 2nd, but because various repairs were not completed, it didn’t list until Friday, the 7th. Prior to it listing she had gone by my house to verify that the repairs had been done, took pictures and sent them to me. Now before, I said “ACCOMODATING” Well, let’s double that.
By Sunday, May 9, we received multiple offers, and settled on a sale price of $6,500 over list price!
Bottom line is that Beth was so helpful and accommodating that I was never in the dark about what was going on and I was 8 hours away in South Carolina. She always kept me in the loop.
Thank you, Beth, for all your help. My house sold in under a month, and you helped save me from having to make both a mortgage payment and a rental payment, which would have been difficult to afford.
So, I say, “I suggest you call Beth.”
BRIAN, MOUNT DORA, FL
Listing and selling a house these days is a difficult process of and by itself, add in the complexity of a short sale and the sensitive nature of the information affecting the lives of the sellers and it can lead to a potentially stressful situation.
Beth handled all of that in the most professional manner possible without once making me feel awkward in any way. Beth effectively negotiated the sale of the house, payoff of the second mortgage, removal of a lien and subsequent payoff of a water softener company without once making it difficult for me. The loss of the house through the short sale actually ended up benefiting me more than I could have foreseen and without her expert skills of putting the deal together with all three entities on my behalf I would have been at a loss for how to handle it all!
I will not hesitate to call on Beth for sale of my future properties whether a conventional listing or a short sale.
CHRIS AND TABITHA L., OCOEE, FL
The home buying process can be extremely overwhelming and stressful, especially when it’s your first home. However, Beth made the entire experience seem quick and painless. She kept us informed throughout the sale and ensured that we were knowledgeable in every part of the home buying process, from the offer to the closing, even providing us with contact information for inspectors and homeowner’s insurance providers that her previous clients have enjoyed working with. And now, my husband and I can call ourselves proud homeowners, all thanks to Beth! We can’t thank her enough for everything she did to help us buy our first home! You have made a dream come true for us and we appreciate you so much!!
JARED & SARA L., ORLANDO, FL
Beth is an outstanding, professional, honest and caring person. As a young couple with a baby on the way, we had specific needs for our “forever” home as we outgrew of our “first home”. At no point did Beth pressure us to hurry up and make a decision. She was more than willing to search until we found the perfect home and community, and we did!
When it came time to negotiate, Beth provided us with the best options, but again, never pressured us and she stayed within our boundaries. We ended up paying less than expected and she got the seller to contribute a large portion of the closing costs.
The one thing that stuck out to us about Beth is that she is current on nomenclature of the industry. She keeps up with classes, knows ever-changing guidelines and even helped us read documents provided by our lender when we weren’t clear and still didn’t understand their answers.
We have already recommended Beth to a friend and will continue to. Every time we walk through the door of our new home, we’ll know that we can live happily ever after for many years to come because of Beth.
CHERYL S., TAMPA, FL
Beth did an outstanding job selling my home, despite my being located 2 hours away. She is very thorough, highly professional, and a pleasure to work with. Compared to other experiences with real estate agents that I’ve had in the past, my experience with Beth was a true breath of fresh air.
CHRIS N. AND MIKE S., ORLANDO, FL
Beth is an amazing realtor. She was always there for us during the entire process and was genuinely concerned about getting us into a home that we would be happy with. We definitely will use Beth’s services again.
CRYSTAL AND CHRIS B., WINTER PARK, FL
Chris and I were blown away with how enjoyable it was to work with Beth and what an incredible job she did. She had our best interests at heart, fought for those at every point throughout the process, and had the knowledge and resources to do that with excellence. And the amount of trust and confidence she inspired made things as stress-free as possible for us.
We came to her with a tight budget, picky tastes, a short timeframe, and abnormally crunched schedules. Beth listened to our abstract descriptions of our ideal home and neighborhood and pinned down exactly what we wanted within our budget. Everything we saw, online or in person, fit the desires we’d expressed, and she was so thorough that we didn’t feel we needed to look on our own. We were surprised at the number of homes we had to choose from, and we loved that she previewed the houses before we saw them — that saved us so much time and energy, allowing us to fit our search into a couple of short evenings and afternoons spread over about two weeks!
Once we’d picked the house we wanted, she helped us negotiate a better price than we expected, along with a home warranty and money toward repairs and closing costs. Generally, we’d not reveal all our cards, even to our own real estate agent, as commission adds some doubt as to the goals of the agent. With Beth, we felt like she was absolutely our advocate and we could be completely transparent. Plus she brought a lot of knowledge to the table and perfectly balanced being willing to state her opinion and leaving the decision up to us.
As we dealt with inspections, repairs, and financing, she was there at every step. She provided us not only with suggestions of professionals she trusted but also their references and quotes for the job, and then she took care of the scheduling between seller, contractor, and us. She could not have made the process easier! And when our credit union financing fell through at the last minute, the mortgage broker she recommended, Vicki Moletteire with Synergy Mortgage, was able to arrange a closing in 2½ weeks.
I think we ran into every speed bump possible, but it felt like we had a team of people working for us with how on top of every situation she was, how often and well she communicated, the information she was able to provide, and how she listened to and represented us through every step.
Professionally, Beth can’t be topped, and her character and caring set her apart. We would recommend her to anyone.
LISA D., ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, FL
Beth, from the time I finally decided I could actually afford a home, there was no one I would have rather worked with than you. You are certainly in the right field of work for you. You are very professional and take each clients “wish list” to heart. The home I am in had 99.99% of what I was looking for in a home, and I could not be more pleased. I could not have asked for a better experience. I love my home and I love knowing at the end of the day, I can come home to my little slice of paradise. Thank you for making this process so easy.
JASON F., WINTER PARK, FL
My experience with Beth and the purchase of my home was great. I couldn’t believe how smoothly it went. She kept me up to date every step of the way and took care of all the hard stuff. I bought a great house and got a great deal. Beth went 110 percent. Whenever someone tells me they’re interested in buying a home, I recommend Beth Hobart. Thank you Beth.
RECHELLE B., ORLANDO, FL
I am a 26 year old single woman that finally took the plunge and made the decision to buy a home. I was nervous and scared because I had no idea where or how to start. I took my mom and a good friend of mine out to search for homes for sale in the downtown area. After an entire day of searching for the perfect home with no luck, We stumbled upon “THE ONE” so I picked up the phone and called the number on the ‘for sale’ sign. Beth answered the call and by the end of the conversation she had already set me up to see the house the next day. When I showed up at the home for the walk through, Beth was already there and was very approachable and friendly from the start. I explained that I was new at this and that I had very little knowledge about buying a home. She never once made me feel intimidated. Before I knew it she had set me up with a loan officer and we scheduled to meet again the next day to sign papers. I couldn’t believe how quick and easily it had all started to come together. From that point on Beth was amazing. She was on the phone with me every single step of the way with an upbeat and positive attitude. Best of all, I can’t remember ever having any questions for her because everything I needed to know or anything that needed to be done, she had already covered before I could even think of them. Beth has an abundance of knowledge that really shows in all she does. About a month and a half later, thanks to Beth and her team, I am now an official home owner living in a beautiful home that I never would have thought was possible for me to own.
Beth, I can’t ever thank you enough for all that you do and for making my home buying experience such a positive one. I will continue to recommend you to everyone, and I hope to work with you again when the time comes.
MARC, JENNIFER AND LEXI, ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, FL
Whether you are looking for your dream home or trying to sell the home you are in Beth will work harder with you to close the deal on your terms than any other real estate professional in Florida. We recommend her without reservation.
THE CARVALHO FAMILY, PORTUGAL/ORLANDO, FL
Meeting Beth Hobart was truly a wonderful experience we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
We recently moved from Portugal, never before having lived anywhere in the United States. In the process, we were confronted with several decisions and found few resources available to provide us proper counsel. Beth took us by the hand, and not only showed us many homes, neighborhoods and schools, but also provided us with extremely valuable insight, not leaving out any of the details that would be important to our relocation. This was especially important for a family like us that has a seven year old son, where the choice of the schools was critical.”
Thinking back on what she did for us, we can only say that it would be very hard to imagine having better support from anyone that had no obligations to go beyond her job duties to assist us. But in every occasion, she walked the extra mile for us and we cannot think of anyone doing so much for another person. We could go on for a very long time about every thing Beth did with us and for us, but to be honest we cannot think of any words to describe how grateful we really are. She was like a guiding angel for us.Thank you so much, and God bless who put Beth on our path.
MS.ADDISON, UNITED KINGDOM/ORLANDO, FL
I was in a state of desperation and Beth picked up on this straight away. Although I had been let down by the previous company who had my property up for sale, the personal approach and a plan of action shown by Beth put my mind at ease from my first visit. I believe that a very speedy sale was made due to Beth’s commitment, honesty and communication throughout the sale. I feel that she went beyond her limit to achieve this comparing my experience with other Realtors and my experience in the working world. I am planning on using the her again for the sale of another purchase in the very near future.
THE PROSSER FAMILY, UNITED KINGDOM/ORLANDO, FL
My family and I have relocated from the UK to Orlando and in the process of doing so we needed to find a reliable and friendly Realtor. Beth Hobart came highly recommended and based on the information we were given we asked Beth to help us find our new home.
She has been extremely professional, friendly and reliable from the day we met her. Beth has an extensive local knowledge of Orlando and was able to find the right homes in the right area for schools, work and recreation. We felt confident that she had our best interests at heart and is a great communicator, keeping us up to date with all that was happening during our house search.
In Beth we have found a Realtor who we trust with our future housing needs. Thank you Beth!
