If you are reading this, then you are looking for a good and dependable Realtor to sell your home. We recommend you meet with Barbara Hopkins, ERA American Realty & Investments before selecting a Realtor. Barbara had the combination of experience and market knowlege that proved to be a winning combination for selling our property at 2528 North Brentwood Circle, Lecanto, FL
In January 2008, we signed a contract with Barbara, she was the 3rd Realtor during this depressed selling market. We originally put the house up for sale in February 2006, and we hadn't received even one offer. Barbara had an aggressive, optimistic marketing strategy. Barbara assured us that she could get us an offer if we priced the property to move. We signed the contract on 1/1/08 and the house was sold in three months time.
During this period she kept us fully informed of all showings and open houses. She gave us a few ideas to give our house better "curb appeal" on the outside and a warmer, more inviting feeling on the inside. Barbara showed our house and the advantages of living in that particular community. Even in the depressed selling market, she was able to adapt a market strategy and do what it takes to move Real Estate.
We highly recommend Barbara Hopkins for all your Real Estate needs and urge you to listen to her marketing strategy before selecting Realtor to sell your property.

As you know, the house we owned on Santos Drive in Citrus Springs, FL had been listed with a local Realtor for more than two months prior to our meeting. When we met, you explained your marketing techniques and assured us you would stay in contact and give us feedback after every showing unless we advised you otherwise. Your maketing plan made sense, seemed to cover a large area and your willingness to adjust and employ new techniques impressed us. Additionally, you advised us the asking price we had with the previous Realtor was not likely to accomplish what we wanted; which was to sell the house in a reasonable time for the best price possible.
As it turned out, you only had to give us feedback after one showing which was within 24 hours after our agreement to list with you. You called to advise us you showed the house and had a signed offer for us. After discussion and explanation we signed the offer and faxed it back to you.
You were professional, accessible and helpful from before listing to after closing. We appreciate your efforts and look forward to a continued mutually beneficial relationship.

Barbara Hopkins made this stressful time of selling our home during a terrible Real Estate Market time as easy as possible with all of her experience, knowledge, great personality, honesty and always keeping us informed whether good or bad news.
We've sold several homes and she has been the best agent we've ever had. She is truely an asset to her Broker, Company and most importantly to all her customers!

My name is Beverly Dixon and my home at 4970 N. Buffalo Dr. in Pine Ridge has just been sold!
I had 3 agent prior to selecting Barbara Hopkins. I had bad experiences with all 3 for various reasons they came highly reccomended, got me to sign and I was left with alot of empty promises.
As I felt I had learned valuable lessons, I interviewed 4 more Realtors before choosing Barbara Hopkins, I felt she was the most motivated and sincere to help a very exasperated seller.
Barbara went above and beyond to sell my home - she was honest about where I needed to be to obtain a buyer in a very flooded market in my area. She was always available to me even on weekends to answer my call however small or large my concerns were - she really went to bat when the buyer was found, to insure my best interest.
In a time when I literally had no one to rely on Barbara was there to lead me through a very emotional process for me - most importantly she kept her word and I am extremely grateful. Barbara is a wonderful Realtor with alot of heart and professionalism!
Thank you Barbara
