WE WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE LOOKING TO BUY OR SELL A HOME IN THE AREA.

We used Larry and Jill to sell our home in University Place. They were great to work with and made the {very quick!} sale of our home easy as can be. They are such nice people as well! We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area.

I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER AND WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR PROPERTY IN THE AREA.

I recently completed the purchase of a new home in Sarasota with the help of Jill and Larry Johns. They were both extremely professional, knowledgeable and wonderful to work with. When given my wishlist, they listened to what I had to say, and showed my properties that had the amenities I was looking for within my budget. Once I returned home, they continued to send me appropriate listings until I found the right one. They were then with me every step of the way, providing expert guidance from the offer process through the closing, ensuring that it all went seamlessly. I couldn't be happier and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for property in the area.

I CANNOT BEGIN TO EXPRESS HOW HAPPY I AM...AND THE LEVEL OF SERVICE WE RECEIVED.

I cannot begin to express how happy I am with Larry and Jill Johns and the level of service we received. Larry and Jill have been wonderful. I have been working with them long distance to help my grandparents sell their home in Sarasota, FL. Larry and Jill were very patient and understanding when trying to work with an older couple. All of our questions were answered and they gave honest and informed advice and recommendations when marketing my grandparents' home. I was more then comfortable having Larry and Jill working with my grandparents to help make the marketing, sale and closing of my grandparents' home a success. I would highly recommend Larry and Jill to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

We sold our Lido Beach town home....

We sold our Lido Beach town home, needed a new residence fast in the local area in 30 days. Got into a bad contract with 2 incompetent Realtors, in comes Larry and Jill to the rescue. We meet Larry at an Open House, closed on that very home in 20 days!!! Unbelievably professional, caring, a genuine care for all parties. REAL Folks. We are so HAPPY we met them, the seller and the home in Laurel Lakes is amazing! Larry and Jill have now moved to the TOP of our referral list for friends and family. Awesome couple, they do business in a way all parties are satisfied on Closing Day. Thanks Much, Tom and Laura Flood

They were always there to represent me...

I chose Larry and Jill because they sold the house across the street from me and saw how hard they worked. The occupants had moved. They held open houses every weekend, sprayed the driveway for weeds and were always there for showings.

I contacted Larry and Jill regarding the sale of my home in Laurel Lakes. They spent a significant amount of time with me reviewing comparables and discussing the price of the house. They also suggested things to do to make the house more presentable. I appreciated their advice.

The selling process was wonderful. Larry was at my house for all "fixes" which needed to be accomplished, as well as the inspection. Their advice was invaluable to me, as was their working with the buyers.

The entire process from listing to selling was the easiest I have ever encountered. Larry and Jill were with me every step of the way. They provided great input, clear and concise communication during all phases of the selling process, held many open houses, provided great contacts for any work needing to be accomplished, communicated every detail of the process, were with me during closing and have become good friends. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house.

I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful the process of selling my house was. One of the most important qualities of both Larry and Jill is they listen. They were always there to represent me, their customer.

I HAVE NEVER HAD A MORE STELLAR EXPERIENCE...

I have bought and sold many homes and condos during the last 25 years and can honestly state that I have NEVER had a more stellar experience than I have with the representation and friendship of Larry and Jill Johns. They are a spectacular team and are the most professional and responsive team and individuals I have met in the real estate market. I give them 5 stars for knowledge, expertise, responsiveness and negotiation skills!

THEY TRULY LISTENED TO WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR IN A HOME.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Larry and Jill in our search to find our vacation/retirement home. They were both so helpful and knowledgeable. They truly listened to what we were looking for in a home

Other Realtors in Ft. Myers and the surrounding area had discouraged us from a short sale, but Larry and Jill were proactive and positive, telling us the benefits of a short sale. They also educated us on the facts about short sales and fairly represented our interests in negotiating an offer.

Larry and Jill are hard working, professional and personable. They were friendly and not only drove us to the homes on the market but took us to downtown Sarasota, the beaches and surrounding areas so we could get a feel of the community. My husband and I will be closing on our home soon. We feel like we have already made two new friends.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Lakewood Ranch, FL.

I was looking for a Pro to market my home, and I found it, not one but two, Jill and Larry Johns. After a short listing period, we had so many showing that I knew something good was going to happen. Then we received multiple offers and accepted one that was very close to asking price. They had sold the house for the highest cost per square foot EVER in our neighborhood. Property values have now gone way up in the area, due to the excellant marketing and professional approach taken by them. I have always know that the pro's were @ RE/MAX and I chose the cream of the crop. You should to. Thanks Jill and Larry. You are the best !!

'THANK YOU" TO THE BOTH OF YOU FOR A JOB WELL DONE.

I just wanted to write a short "thank you" to the both of you for a job well done. I would recommend both of you to my friends and I will use you if need be in the future.

To my neighbors, I would say that you listed my home and within a few weeks a contract was written within the range that you had suggested. This is where your work was cut out for you. With two sellers and the home listed in two names, communication between the parties was difficult at best. Your emails and phone calls were so appreciated by me and you kept me abreast of everything that was happening. I was the out of state seller and at the time of closing, I felt so confident in you both, that I did not use a lawyer at closing.

And to my neighbors, I would say next you are looking to sell your home, remember Larry and Jill Johns, from RE/MAX Alliance Group.

"The strength of their support in tandem with their team is amazing and crucial from listing to closing."

After listing the property with another agent for 6 months with little activity, we invited Larry and Jill Johns into the house and the rest is history...Larry and Jill sold within a short time frame, their professionalism and knowledge in the industry outstanding!

While negotiating on our behalf, the promptness and quality of their marketing which includes a vast network, the internet and print mediums, all impressive. The strength of their support in tandem with their team is amazing and crucial from listing to closing.

It is my immense pleasure to recommend Larry and Jill Johns as "your" real estate agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $500K in Sarasota, FL.

Jill & Larry are a great, professional team. Together they provided us outstanding service, advice and followup.

They provided very high quality marketing materials and spared no expense when changes were necessary do to seller changes. They provided good critical advice about any suggestions to improve our home for current buyer expectations and when prospective buyers viewed our home. We also appreciated that one of them generally made themselves available at our home for most prospective viewings to answer questions, etc. They were very attentive to our phone and email calls and questions. They also followed through upon our sale all the way to and including with the closing of the sale. If you are looking for a professional and experienced real estate team in the Sarasota area they are a five star team. From listing to sale closing it took less than 90 days !

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Bradenton, FL.

I highly recommend Jill and Larry Johns as they are exceptional realtors. My experience using Jill and Larry as a buyer was absolutely wonderful. It has become a clichéd expression, but yes, they really did exceed my expectations. I chose them not only for their knowledge of the market and professionalism, but also because they have a very kind and easy going demeanor. I was not an easy client as I was going through a divorce and there were a lot of starts and stops in my search. I appreciated that they were consistent in their communication, but not pushy or overbearing. They listened carefully to my goals and desires, then worked hard to find properties that were a good fit. For me, what truly sets them apart is their integrity. I always felt they were putting my needs above their own interest in making a sale for the sake of a commission. While displaying great patience, they were also strong and direct when I needed them to be and negotiated a transaction quickly within my stated range. I never felt that they were pushing me to stretch beyond the price point I was comfortable in. Their genuine care and concern was a breath of fresh air.

The saying that timing is everything was certainly true in my case. After hesitating, I finally was ready to make an offer only to find that the two properties I had in mind had accepted agreements that day. At 10PM that night I received word that a listing in my desired neighborhood had gone on just moments earlier. I was the first one to see it the next day and we had a contract by 6pm. I'm convinced that had they not been on top of it and gotten me in so quickly I would have lost the property. I am very grateful to them as we just love it here.

Bought a home in 2012 in Bradenton, FL 34202.

Larry and Jill were excellent. From the initial contact they were professional, knowledgeable, and respectfull of our time. They gathered the information from us we were looking for in a home, and provided several properties that we could choose from. Being an out of state buyer, they arranged all of the closing items, recommended service providers, and handled several issues that came up prior and post closing. Not only would we recommend them to any buyer or seller, we intend on using them again for investment property.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Longboat Key, FL.

Robin and I express our sincere gratitude to Larry and Jill Johns for their patience during our long and methodical search for a place on Longboat Key. Longboat Key is a place I have known since vacationing there with my parents and brother beginning in the early 60's, my parents and brother are now deceased. Larry and Jill were mindful of the special place that is Longboat Key and through their kindness, knowledge and skills Larry and Jill helped to make it possible for our children, grandchildren and friends to also enjoy the beauty and friendship of the Longboat Key community.

Larry and Jill Johns are friendly and instantly likable people. We have come to know Larry and Jill as genuinely caring and honest people who are loyal and dedicated professionals. With Larry and Jill it was not about the “deal” it was always about us, their clients, first and foremost. They understood what we were looking for by careful listening and long enduring patience, at no time did Larry and Jill try to sell us on anything outside of our expressed interest.

Robin and I live in Kentucky and thankfully non-stop air travel with Allegiant to St. Pete/Clearwater is convenient and affordable; however, we frequently relied upon Larry and Jill throughout the long search process to go to the many properties we located on Zillow for an in person view. Finally, when we found on Zillow a townhouse on Fairway Bay at Bay Isles Larry and Jill worked hard and smartly to make the purchase a perfectly satisfactory experience. Larry and Jill clearly explained all of the closing details and requirements and more importantly they did nearly all of the footwork to make the entire transaction easier than buying a car! After the closing Larry and Jill helped us by personally overseeing one repair item remaining at closing, real service after the sale!

Robin and I truly regard Larry and Jill to be our friends. We highly recommend Larry and Jill to be your considerate, highly professional and very down to earth real estate agents.

I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE....THEY ARE TOP NOTCH.

I have known Larry since he sold me my home over 10 years ago and sought him out when it came time to sell and buy another. He and Jill were very knowledgeable and more than helpful during the listing and selling of my home. Larry was with me every step of the way and went way above and beyond to assist me, answering all of my questions, giving good advice on how to market my home in the best way and even walking my dog to help my house show better to prospective buyers. He made himself available to come to showings whenever possible and held multiple open houses in order to market my home in the best manner possible. I feel confident in saying my home sold quicker and for a better price because of the diligence of Larry and Jill in marketing and showing my home. The entire experience was made better because of them. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home. They are top notch.

With their guidance...

Larry and Jill have helped us look at several homes in Lakewood Ranch. After we found one that we both liked, they helped us navigate the negotiations aspect. With their guidance, we have acquired a lovely home here in Florida.

THEY ARE TRULY KNOWLEDGEABLE, CARING AGENTS WHO HAD OUR "BEST INTERESTS" AT HEART.

Jill and Larry Johns of RE/MAX Alliance Group have made selling our home in Bradenton, FL a pleasure. They are truly knowledgeable, caring agents who had our "best interests" at heart. They provided the very best "virtual tour" of our home as well as suggestions and advice to make our selling experience the "very best it can be." We highly recommend Jill and Larry to any future sellers. It was a very enjoyable association with them. Selling your home can be a very stressful experience, not with Jill and Larry. It was a very pleasant experience working with both of them.

Finally, we can see why they have been in the real estate business for so many years and highly recommended by all who have been associated with the both of them. We have sold several houses in the past 25 years and no brokers provided the updates and suggestions as Jill and Larry did. If you are looking to sell your home then Jill and Larry Johns, without hesitation, are the two to call.

This couple was excellent in all aspects of selling our house. In utilizing them, you are getting "two for the price of one." Their knowledge and experience is tremendous. Therefore, they can provide much needed assistance on any decision you need to make. We highly recommend them to anyone who is considering selling their house or anyone who is in the market for one.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 in Sarasota, FL.

Jill and Larry Johns provided a very good experience for us during our purchase of a condo on Siesta Key. It was a very, very long short sale process and did not seem to go right from the very beginning. Larry and Jill were very professional and patient during the entire process even when we (the buyers) were very close to giving up!! They both have in-depth knowledge of the local market as well as experience dealing with short sales. If your looking for very professional brokers and brokers with the added insight to give you an 'honest' opinion, then Larry and Jill are the right brokers for you.

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR HIGH LEVEL REAL ESTATE REPRESENTATION.

We were very happy with the services provided by Larry and Jill in selling our home in Sarasota. They were knowledgeable, professional and very pleasant to work with. They communicated with us every step of the process. They pressed us when it was needed, but always carried out our directions. They handled every unforeseen issue that occurred in the process which was comforting since we are out of state. Bottom line, they sold our house for asking price in less than 3 weeks! Larry and Jill are professional and truly enjoyable people to work with; we highly recommend them to anyone looking for high level real estate representation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Bradenton, FL.

Larry & Jill are nothing short of AWESOME!!! We live in Colorado and were looking to find our future retirement home in the Sarasota area. We found Larry & Jill from reading reviews just like these and they are spot on. Larry & Jill are true professionals who are also very personable, caring, and honest. They took the time to really get to know us to best find homes, that matched our personality and lifestyle. We found the perfect home on day 2 of a planned week long buying trip;)

They work very hard at providing a full customer service experience which is great since we are not here to handle a lot of things. Our buying experience had some interesting twists but Larry & Jill handled everything very professionally brought us to a successful closing 1 day earlier then planned;)

Larry & Jill are also great ambassador's to the Sarasota and entire gulf coast area! There isn't anything they do not know about the area and provided us very useful information. We not only found GREAT realtors but made new wonderful friends with Larry and Jill Johns;)

I know this is long but we can not express enough our wonderful experience!!!! Thank you very much Larry and Jill we really appreciate everything you have done for us;)

Jill and Larry are an impressive team! We hired them to sell our house and from the first meeting through closing they provided exceptional service.

We would highly recommend Jill and Larry!
