Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   When you meet someone who embodies authenticity it can be easy to overlook the details. What I found working with Dawn is that she has both - authenticity and an eye for details!  There is no reason to go anywhere else.

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   Donna is a God send!! She helped us locate the perfect home, in the perfect location, at the perfect price for my large family. Me and my husband had been searching on our own with no luck- everything we found was either too small or WAY out of our price range - when we met Donna she was able to find our new home within the first few days! She was able to answer all of our questions in a timely manner - day or night! In less than two months we were out of our rental and moved into our first home! We are loving the our new home and are looking forward to making many memories thanks to Donna Bennington! and.........

Donna Bennington is an excellent title agent!! She helped guide me and my husband in the home buying process! She was always able to work around my crazy night shift hours in order to get the papers signed. She was quick in answering any questions that arose. Donna helped quench the fear and anxiety in the home buying process! Thanks Donna for the support and guidance you provided us during our home buying adventure! If we ever had to go through another home transaction again Donna Bennington is the way to go!!

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   Hi, my name is George, Donna Bennington was referred by a friend of mine named Tim.  Donna helped him short sale his house, and i also needed help in short selling my house.  I have to say that donna did a great job in short selling me and my wife's house.  She is very friendly, but business like in her approach.  Donna went the extra mile in helping us, with contacting the bank and who did the loan. She helped ease the stress level, and is very knowledgeable in her field.Our house was sold in 2013. Donna made sure that the loan was free and clear, without any more liabilities. She also got $3000 in moving expenses for us. When I my wife start to look to buy a home, we know who to call.......... Donna Bennington

June contacted me after finding my listing on craig's list in August 2016. She offered that an MLS listing would provide much more traffic then what I was doing. I OK'd a 60 day listing at less then the standard commission and also advised her that during the listing period I would also be offering the property for rent. May the best person win. She did. June had a contract on the property in a few weeks at very close to my asking price. The listing I signed on 8-26 turned into a Closing on 10-31. That's the kind of perfomance I can respect and appreciate as an owner of multible income properties. Roland Kushmore.

June is a bright, energetic, knowledgeable woman who does not impose her opinion but presents current real estate options.

She went the extra mile by offering the "moving services" of her husband. We had two new mattresses that we needed help bringing into our new townhome and her husband was the "good Samaritan" who provided the muscle. June made us feel welcomed and an immediate part of the community! Joan B

She was thorough and professional all the way through the entire process. We are thrilled with the results, from listing to closing in under 2 months and a new higher price-point for all of Oakleaf!!! Thank you June for doing such a splendid job in listing, marketing and selling our home.

To Whom it may concern,

I worked with June McEleavy from Premier Plus Realty, as my Realtor for the home I was selling in South Gate Ridge. She did a great job! She saved me money by not letting me go too low on the purchase price as we were quite nervous about getting out as quickly as we wanted to. She handled all the details, was easy to communicate with and was always available.

I highly recommend June to anyone listing their home. And buyers too!

We were very pleased with June’s help during the process of selling our condo. She gave us good advice,
was always available by phone and e-mail, and really helped us facilitate the entire process, from listing to
closing. This was particularly important because we are not in the area. She helped us prepare the apartment
for showing and worked hard on our behalf to prepare it for sale once the contract was signed. We really
appreciate her professionalism and dedication.”

Real Estate agents move too! It’s been a great move!
Dec 29, 2017 by Shirley Bahler

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   Real estate agents have so much to consider when we make an affiliation change. I met Dawn Cohen informally initially and thought what she said her office had to offer was too good to be true. I was intrigued enough to follow up and made a formal appointment with both her and John Sciaras to ask the questions I had formulated and get a better sense of their company’s business philosophy, offerings, support systems and practices. As a seasoned agent from another state having interviewed through the years with various companies, I didn’t look further figuring if they delivered half of what they offered, I would be more than satisfied as it would offer me a good balance of the independence I prefer in my own business with the backing every agent needs as well. I have to say the level of support I am receiving is BEYOND expectations and continues to impress me. Both Dawn and John have years of real estate experience and a true passion for the business. They each built their individual successes by being truly excellent in handling the real estate needs of their own clients and customers. As brokers, they are equally dedicated to the success of their affiliated agents that surpasses what I have come to expect in over 3 decades of personal real estate experience. This is a place where agents can thrive and have the support and tools they need to provide top notch service for their own clients and customers. Thanks Dawn and John. You are among the very best in the biz!

Thank you, John Sciara!
Jul 10, 2017 by Stephen Martin-Bennet

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   There are not enough good things I can say about the job John Sciara did for us during our home-buying process. This was my first home purchase in Florida, and it was my husband's first home purchase period.

John was patient with us as we were looking at homes. He gave us pointers as things we should be looking for as well as things to avoid. Because of our work schedule, it was easier for us to look at homes on weekends, and this was never a problem for John. He is honest, reliable, and hard-working. All the things you want in a realtor.

When it came time to make and offer, he went above and beyond. Our offer was accepted within 18 hours, and the process started rolling. He was there every step of the way with guidance on financing, inspection, and insurance.

As of last Friday, we closed on our new home, and we could not have done it without John's expertise! We are forever grateful for all he did.

If anyone is ever in need of a realtor, John Sciara of Premier Plus Realty is the only name we'll ever suggest.

Best Business Decision Yet
Aug 04, 2016 by Erin DiFazio

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   I joined Premier Plus Realty after interviewing with almost every other brokerage out there. Such an important decision required thorough research--and I am so glad I kept going.  Dawn and John provide the kinds of real, hands-on training that I needed, but without all of the big corporate nonsense that I so wanted to avoid. After having  less than stellar personal experiences with real estate agents, I wasn't sure how I felt about wearing that title. The emphasis at Premier Plus is honesty, hard work and genuinely helping us to be the best we can be, and while it may sound cheesy, that is exactly the kind of Realtor I want to be. Thanks guys for sharing your knowledge so enthusiastically!

Wonderful Experience
Apr 11, 2016 by Stephen P Gravois

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   We had our house home listed with another company for several no avail. We listed with Dawn and her words were to us was "you sure you want to sell your house". She suggested some very minor changes to our decor and then she went to work...we had a couple of showing immediately (none with previous company) and with in a few weeks we were looking at a contract. She was awesome. Dawn walked us through the entire process and explained everything to us as we hadn't sold a home in 30 years. We them started looking for another place to live and again she went to work and helped us locate our new place. It is such a relief when you have an experienced person by your side guiding you through the difficult process of negotiations, inspections and closing. We would never use anyone else to do our real estate matters. In our opinion Premier Plus, Dawn Cohen and team were absolutely the best...You will think so too!

Dawn was amazing
Apr 06, 2016 by Shana Hamel

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   Dawn Cohen was the realtor on a short sale listing from 2009.  While it may seem long overdue, it is very appropriate to me.  I recently got my mortgage license.  After studying the history of the mortgage market back then and the laws that have been put in place since then, I am even more grateful for what Dawn did for us back then.  I had an 80/20 mortgage and a HELOC.  She fought for 9 long months, but in the end, the house was sold and the shortage on all three loans was forgiven.  It was an emotional journey, but we couldn't have done it without her.  Thanks Dawn!  I've never forgotten what you did for us.

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   John Sciara not only helped me sell a house (which he helped price right and we had a cash offer at asking price the next day after him putting it on the market), but then found me the perfect house soon after. John knew exactly how to price the house to sell and also found me just what I needed and I got a steal! He is very knowledgeable about the Sarasota market and had very good ideas and suggestions which helped me make the decision to buy my latest property. So glad I trusted him and all my friends are saying what a deal I got (which was priced way under market value). Thanks so much John!!! Your the best

Suzanne is AMAZING!!!
May 09, 2015 by Mike Kastrati

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how much Suzanne helped me in the purchase of my condo on siesta key. I live in Plainfield IL a suburb of Chicago Suzanne has helped me purchase two condos on siesta key. The first one was about a year ago and the second just a few weeks ago. She exceeded all my expectations. She went to take pictures for me described the unit perfectly. When I finally saw the unit I felt like I had already seen it. She handled all the negotiations perfectly getting me a great value on this unit all over the phone without me ever actually seeing it. When I do plan to sell my other unit There is no one else I would consider to list it with than Suzanne. I'm sure you already know how lucky you are to have a professional like her working for you. I looked for a condo for several years and never bought one. In the year or so I have known Suzanne I have bought two. if I know of anyone looking to buy or sell property in Sarasota I will definitely recommend Suzanne and your agency!

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   In one word--HONEST
OK the second word would be hard working
What more would you want from a realitor
With her honesty she will tell you how she feels even though it may not be what you want to hear.  Bottom line she will work hard and long to sell your house and Just as hard to find you the right house

I feel she is quite knowledgeable about the area and market and will do her best to satisfy her customer.

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   In 2010 I had to relocate my family due to work considerations. On a tight timeline, dawn came and managed the sale of our house efficiently and was very responsive to our needs and questions.

3 years later, as I was preparing to purchase another house 3000 miles away I needed some paperwork from the previous sale. I only had to call Dawn once and she was able to find the documents among her off site records and sent them to me that same day. She stood to make no profit or money from this transaction. This dedication to the client's needs and professionalism is what sets Dawn.

I can not recommend her highly enough.

Response from Dawn on 05/24/2013

Robert, I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work as well. It was a long battle and your family came out shining. I am always here to help. Please keep my contact information in case you ever need anything in the future! Thank you again, Dawn Cohen

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   We were looking for a winter condo in SW Florida and Sarasota/Bradenton was the first place we looked. We had a couple of properties in mind when we left Sarasota but we knew we wanted to have Dawn working in our interest if we chose Sarasota. We offered and purchased a Bradenton property with Dawns help and we have been extremely pleased with our Realtor choice. If we ever upgrade our Florida property we will work with Dawn.

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   We were referred to Dawn Cohen by a friend and it turned out to be the best thing that happened to our search for a new home. She listened to what was important to us and found us a home on the first day we searched. She negotiated a great price and even gave us a rebate at closing! I would highly recommend Dawn to anyone on the house hunt.

Dawn Cohen is a phenomenal realtor, who is outstanding from all perspectives. She has assisted us to purchase several residential properties over the past 4 years, and she has assisted us multiple times to rent out our commercial office space. First and foremost, she always focuses on serving our best interests as her clients, without pursuing her own agenda, as so many realtors do. We know that we can always rely on her to give us an honest assessment of a property and to do the right thing for us. At different times, we have become overly eager to move on a property, but she approaches the transaction in a very calm, methodical, and analytical manner to make sure that we are getting the best deal, and advises us to approach the negotiations accordingly. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market here in Sarasota and Manatee Counties, including what types of houses are available, in what locations they are available, and in what price range. She is always prompt in responding to our calls and emails, and punctual for every appointment. From our experience in renting out the the commercial office unit, Dawn has shown real persistence, working hard and ultimately succeeding in finding us a new tenant each time, even in spite of very challenging economic conditions. Quite simply, based on our experience from working with Dawn, we would not even think of working with another realtor.

Response from Dawn on 06/10/2013 Thank you for such kind words. It has been such a pleasure working with your family over the past few years. Call me anytime you need anything! Dawn Cohen

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   Hello Dawn.

I want to thank you for your highly professional, incredibly honest, and accurate - using 26 photos - handling of the sale of JLC’s home last February, which you priced right, sold in three weeks, and had five couples bidding for it, thereby moving the final price on 2/28/13 to an amount higher than we thought was the right one! What more can one expect of someone selling a home of a family member?! You know all the right strategies to pursue and they all worked!

I appreciated the various connections you suggested to help me prepare JLC’s three bedroom, lakeside villa for potential buyers. You know the talent pool - with reasonable prices - for these minor, but important efforts. Most of us would not know right off where to turn or whom to trust!

Your finest talent is that you make each owner (or person handling the sale) feel as though he/she is your only client. How you do all that you do for each of your clients -  is absolutely amazing and very much appreciated!  You left me feeling totally satisfied about each step you took and why. You know the markets and you know the competition. Therefore, you are tops in my book!

I would be most pleased to answer any questions possible clients might ask before possibly selecting you.
Because I thoroughly enjoyed working with you, I want others to know why!

Warmest regards. Martha

Premier Plus Realty    ,  USA   Dear Prospective Homeowners:

My company was hired by a client of Dawn Cohen, to conduct an estate sale from a house they had listed and sold with her. We conducted a two-day estate sale and sold everything in the house.

After working with as many realtors “behind the scenes” as we have, it's easy to see the expertise Dawn Cohen brings to the table. She answered and returned calls promptly and was a joy to work with. She even cleaned the floors before we could get back to the house to do it. In my 10 years of estate liquidation, I have never had a realtor, go this above and beyond.

Honesty and integrity are two principals and beliefs our company lives and grows by and I believe Dawn Cohen is a perfect example of this. She will be recommended to friends and family in the future.
