Default Can I ask about TV realtors?

I'll be moving there mid November. In advance of that I want to identify a really great TV Agent ......not an MLS realtor. I'm looking for someone who is professional, hard working, customer-focused, honest, responsive and knowledgeable.

I am hoping to get referrals from locals based on their experience. Please folks.....no recommendations on someone who you are just trying to help or 'cos it's a buddy. This is really important to me.

I'm wondering if this Thread will be scrubbed. Am I not supposed to ask this? I've learned a lot about TV, but hard to know the "rules" on this forum.

Thanks in advance!

The agents who work for The Villages are not Realtors. If you want to use a Realtor you will need to find a member of MLS. Furthermore, The Villages company does not share its listings with (MLS) Realtors.

We have had three TV reps. The first one was the best, but promoted. Second not a fan. The thrice was Mark Kennedy, and very much impressed

I'd double down on recommending Roy. He's worked wonders for 4 friends we have referred to him, and they now are all happy Villagers

Debra Park, Properties of The Villages
Cell 352-408-8800
Office 352-753- 2270

I was a Real Estate Broker myself for 20 years before retiring. I am very picky about who I use.
Debra is smart, honest, professional and experienced. She is respected by other agents in her office.

I used June Brine with TV. She "works" with a Remax Agent for those houses that are not listed with
TV real estate.

I think you'll find that most of the TV agents are pretty motivated to work with you. The nice thing is that if you find an agent is not a good fit for you, you can always request someone else.
