My husband and I had that "feel good" feeling from the first hello. Sheila is probably one of the most professional and astute Realtors that I have every met. She spent hours finding out what we wanted and needed and she made every moment count. I recommend her to my friends and family now and suggest they pass her information on to their friends. She made looking for a house very enjoyable and I would like to think she sets a very high benchmark for all realtors.
We started in 2012 looking for a small place to call our own as snowbirds. For two years we stayed in touch and whenever we were in Florida (Port Charlotte) and wanted to look around we contacted Sheila, told her what we wanted and she always accommodated our wishes. Our most recent success was when we purchased our home this past August. Sheila guided us through all the paperwork and processes that new home owners have to go through and made it all understandable. Then, when we had to return to our home state shortly after, she continued to work with us long distance and "electronically" to close the deal on our winter home. She completed the final walk-through before closing, took pictures of the home and gave us all the names and numbers of contacts in Florida for us to take ownership. I know that sometimes new owners can be nervous and worrisome but her assurances and help in everything gave us the feeling that we were being taken care of right. We trust Sheila with our new home and were glad that a friend referred us to her. We would be glad to do the same and refer Sheila for any interested homeowners!
Se made us fell as if we were her top priority and her only client. Sheila is a great ambassador for Punta Gorda and an asset to your company. We look forward to a long relationship with Sheila
Sheila Meeks phone me with 5 minutes, the called was followed up with several interesting listings. I knew she was the right person and she found the condo we were hoping for. There was constant contact from her throughout the whole process; she lined up everything from inspectors to insurance. Her wonderful service was way beyond anything I have experienced with a realtor before. If I ever have the need, I will come back to Sheila for my real estate needs.
My wife and I had been discussing looking into a retirement home in Florida and I decided to call several real agents who were more than willing to show us properties they had. Sheila's professionalism and mannerism, along with her interest to insure she understood exactly the type of property we were looking for to fit our needs and budget made us feel comfortable. Sheila also took the anxiety out of feeling pressured to buy while we were looking We felt right from the beginning that she was trying to find us the best property that met our requirements. She offered her advice, provided information about the area, explained the geographic location and gave us a tour of the neighborhoods we were looking in. Sheila made us feel good about our Florida purchasing experience. she also helped us to later rent the property we purchased until the time we are ready to come down. Not only did we find a terrific real estate agent but also made a friend in the process. We keep in contact with her and send our northern friends to see her when the mention they are looking for Florida property.
She was so patient with us trying to decide what type of home we actually wanted for our retirement and what location. She worked with us a year before we actually bought showing us all around Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, helping us narrow down our search. Her knowledge of the area and advice were very helpful in our decision making. When we narrowed down our area and I flew into town to view properties she lined up all the showings I requested and spent time with me at each property. When it came time to make an offer she helped me line up financing, the house inspection and all the details. She was always a pleasure to work with.
In these turbulent times of change, regulations, compliance, conversions, expansions, etc. people seem to be walking the thin line which divides confusion and confidence. From the beginning she seemed to stand alone as one always patient, knowledgeable and in possession of the skills necessary to communicate to other the procedure required to satisfy the demands of the endless paperwork. at no time during the purchase process did we feel alone . We would not hesitate to enlist her services again.
She was always available and responded quickly to any questions or concerns we had during the sale of our home. A big thanks to Sheila and all the staff in Punta Gorda!
You were extremely patient, always smiling and willing to help in any way possible. Anytime I or anyone I talk to is in need of buying or selling a house, I'm DEFINITELY sending them to you.
It was a difficult purchase for us to understand due to it being a lease to own agreement. You made certain we understood all the language , our rights, the sellers' rights and obligations. Most importantly you calmed us when the co-broker totally confused us with his fast double talk. .We are forever grateful ad plan to pass on your name to any friends and neighbors. You are an asset!
It was due to her hard work, diligence and knowledge of her profession that we were able to close on our existing home and purchase a new one. I would recommend Sheila to anyone needing an agent. She made the experience a pleasure and was great to work with.
She was very responsive to our needs, and was supportive in ways we didn't know we needed. She was available at all times and always had great advise. She put her time and personal touch on the staging and showing. Her efforts to get the house on the market , including ensuring the photos were perfect and getting a great video, were amazing and made the home show beautifully! Our home was , show and unusual in that it was historic, very large, and out of the norm for the area. She was able to market, show. and sell the home with ease and in a very timely manner. Additionally, Sheila helped my parents find a home when they were moving to Florida from Washington State while simultaneously helping us with the sale of our home! She was always cheerful and available all the while, relaxed. Her demeanor is contageous making even the most difficult situations tolerable if not enjoyable! She should be recognized as a superior agent and she should be valued as an exceptional asset to Michael Saunders or any other real estate organization! I will recommend Sheila Meeks to anyone who needs assistance with any real estate endeavor. Our warmest regards to Sheila and we appreciate her and her efforts more than she wlll ever know! She has changed our lives immeasurably for the better. We will always be grateful to her.
