I’ve had the priviledge of working for and with some wonderful people over the years and they have been kind enough write some words for me . . .

Very energetic and professional

This was my second home purchase with Yvette, and she was again very energetic and professional. We were able to achieve very good terms with this purchase due primarily due to Yvette’s persistence and good negotiation skills. The end result was another transaction that exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Yvette.

Yvette found our Dream Home

We chose to work with Yvette to help us find our dream home in Sarasota. With ease she managed to marry our specific needs and wasted little time showing us the benefits of different neighborhoods so that we could choose our best match and well within budget. She was at all times looking out for our best interests and helped immensely in all aspects of the purchase. Luckily, she is also experienced as a designer, so we benefited from her renovation and decorating vision. Very happy to recommend her to anyone wanting a hardworking and knowledgeable realtor.

Incredible help in getting all the logistical needs met!

Yvette was very responsive to get our Villa listed and she was very helpful in providing us with many tips to prep the place for a quick sale. Her tips assisted in getting the place to look less cluttered and not so dated. We followed her advice and the place sold in less than two weeks on the market. During the sale, Yvette was an incredible help in getting all the logistical needs met and completing the deal. I have the utmost respect for her as a Real Estate Professional.

Yvette is absolutely awesome!!!

I can’t say enough about her. Our condo sale in Bradenton went without a hitch whatsoever. Not only does she have incredible market knowledge, she goes way above and beyond to make sure that every detail is covered and issue is addressed. On top of all that, she is just a genuinely nice person. We were out of state sellers and would have been lost with Yvette’s professionalism and attention to detail.

From the very first phone call, Yvette gave us her full attention and guided us through the process of purchasing our Florida home. There were some bumps in the road from time to time, but Yvette was always ready with a solution. Her knowledge and tenacity made it happen and we are thankful that she was our agent. Yvette goes above and beyond!!

Great Experience!

Yvette did a great job as the listing agent and was very persistent as we evaluated the more than one dozen purchase offers received. She also ensured that we chose the best one in terms of price and terms, as well as confidence in a transaction close. Yvette was always available and communicated closely with all involved parties to work through any issues that arose in the sale process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to work with a seller or buyer, especially on Bird Key where she lives and knows the market well.

Yvette made the entire process painless

We’ve only been in Florida for a short time and wasn’t anticipating purchasing a condo so soon, but a fabulous condo became available and Yvette made the entire process painless. She was very efficient with all document signing, passing along condo association info, and was always available to answer and questions or concerns we had. We will definitely recommend Yvette in the future.

Out-of-State Purchase Made Easy!

While living in Pennsylvania, Yvette was sensational at helping us to focus on the right house for us in the Sarasota area. With frequent personal contact and with emails of prospective properties, we were able to find the perfect house that checked all the boxes on the first day of our Florida visit. Most impressive is that although Yvette is a seasoned real estate expert, she has a warm customer-focused nature. All the details of closing were smoothly handled and Yvette always went the extra mile in our behalf. We made a friend in the process.

A seamless transition

Yvette was absolutely INCREDIBLE throughout the process of selling our Bird Key home and purchasing a Longboat Key condo. She made the process seamless, oversaw several pre-listing projects, kept in frequent contact, provided a quick response to our inquiries and communicated effectively with the necessary parties to ensure a successful transition. Most importantly, she truly cared about helping us find our perfect new home and provided valuable input as we weighed our options. Yvette was a pleasure to work with and we will highly recommend her to everyone we know.

Purchased a larger home on Bird Key

Yvette was the most honest, thorough, professional realtor we have ever dealt with. She took the time to advise us all on aspects of our purchase. She was always available to address any questions and concerns. We were able to secure the property and close within 5 weeks. All of this would not have been possible without her.

She was so responsive and smart with negotiations. Yvette goes way above and beyond that which one would expect with an agent. She is very positive and has a win-win mentality. If you want to enjoy working with an agent, try Yvette!

Yvette was straightforward, thorough, honest, attentive, highly knowledgeable of the local market, and promptly and efficiently addressed any issues that arose.

Impressed with how well Yvette managed the complex offer process

I recently listed my Bird Key home with Yvette Sellyn and was lucky to have six offers within two days, including four over list price. Although this result wasn’t necessarily a surprise, I was impressed with how well Yvette managed the offer process which has become more complex this year with use of escalation clauses and firm offer submittal dates. Yvette was fair and transparent to the prospective buyers in establishing the offer process and provided timely feedback to all parties. With the contract signed, Yvette worked hard to resolve any issues so that my sale could actually close ahead of schedule. Yvette has strong knowledge of the Sarasota real estate market, has been a pleasure to work with, and I would heartily recommend her to anyone looking to sell their property.

Pleasant Persistence Pays….

We are very excited about our home purchase. Yvette was instrumental in convincing the seller to engage with us and ultimately agree to sell his beautiful home to us. She is such a pleasure to work with and got compliments not only from us, but from the seller for her pleasant demeanor and persistence. She’s been more than just a broker for us. She’s a real partner. I’d recommend her to anyone.

A Truly Extraordinary and Special Realtor

I have had the extreme pleasure of working with Yvette for well over a year now. When my husband passed away, I decided to move to Sarasota to be closer to my family. I have very specific needs and very specific tastes. In speaking with Yvette, as I described my wish list, I realized that I was asking her to achieve the virtually unachievable. Yet, even in the most competitive market imaginable, Yvette never allowed me to give up hope and she never once wavered in her own determination and perseverance. In addition to the challenges posed by an unprecedentedly, competitive market and a long, buyer’s wish-list, Yvette faced the special challenges of transacting a remote sale. Because of the distance, I had to rely upon Yvette to pick up my daughter and bring her to each listing of interest. Yvette, through Facetime, enabled to me join via video chats. Without her special care, this move simply would not have been possible. Over the past year, Yvette has become so much more than our realtor; she has become a trusted part of the family. She took the time to get to know us and what would make us happy. Because of her special, personal relationships, she was able to find the absolute perfect home–one that exceeds all of my dreams. (I still have to pinch myself every time I see it.) Moreover, even after the closing, she has gone out or her way to ensure my comfort and to ease the transition. She is a person to whom we continuously turn for advice and whose opinion we value. I simply could not recommend Yvette enough. She is truly a person who turns dreams into reality.
