Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Live Oak, Saint Petersburg, FL.
Primary point of contact: Beau Lucas
I worked with Beau in buying my home and I have nothing but positive remarks in working with Beau and Lockhart & Associates. Beau was extremely helpful in assisting me as a first time home buyer while relocating to a new city. There was a lot for me to learn and he was patient and helpful during the entire process. The closing team was great! I highly recommend Lockhart & Associates.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Coquina Key, Saint Petersburg, FL.
Our experience with David and Wendy Lockhart and their staff with the sell of our home was by the far the best experience we could have possibly had. They went out of their way to keep us informed and to follow up on every detail of the transaction. But most impressive was their concern about us personally and being sure that our needs were met as well as the buyers needs. We never got the feeling that they were in this just for the commission, instead they made us feel like they were in the transaction to help us meet our personal needs and comfort level. They answered every call and followed up immediately on any issue that arose. We can't thank them enough for making this such a successful experience.
My wife and I started looking for a waterfront vacation home on the west coast of Florida near Clearwater Beach in early 2014. I contacted Lockhart Realty and was paired up with Sheila Decamp. Sheila sent us numerous listings for us to review. I also sent her a lot of ones I found on Zillow, which as it turns out is not as up to date with listing info as you'd think. Realtor.com is the better site but I find Zillow easier to navigate. Anyhow, Sheila was patient with all the Zillow listings I sent her and would look up in MLS to see what really was for sale and send us back the MLS sheets. Sheila was very accommodating with our schedule since we had to drive from Orlando to view house. After Sheila showed us about 9 homes in one day. We found a house in Broadwater Bay we really liked but we had to sell our lot in Orlando first to free up the cash to buy the vacation home. As the lot was on the market the house we liked went under contract. So we went back to looking at listings. Sheila sent more from MLS and I found more on Zillow. We ended up looking at another 6 or so houses one day and found a home we liked better than the previous one that went under contract. Our patience really paid off. Sheila wrote up the contract and we went back and forth with the buyer a time or two before agreeing on a price. By this time our lot was under contract and Sheila added that as a contingency to the house contract. She really knows her stuff. She called for all the inspections and even after the termite inspection found some termites Sheila worked with us and the seller to get the contract amended lowering the price to pay for the tenting / fumigation of the home after the closing. Sheila met us for the walk-through and then we went to closing and everything went smoothly. Afterwards, Sheila had a special gift for us which completely caught us by surprise. My wife and I loved working with Sheila and will definitely be recommending her and Lockhart Realty to any friends that may be looking for homes in that area.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Tierra Verde, FL.
Wendy Lockhart listed my condo at Village at Tierra Verde. After personally looking at our unit, its features and condition, recommended a listing price which, in her opinion, would result in a rapid (i.e., 90-120 days) sale. She also explained her firm's sales history in the Tampa Bay area, their marketing strategy and their use of internet to both promote the property and to track and advise us of inquiries, showings, potential buyer comments, etc. There was frequent contact by phone and email and most importantly, they delivered on their commitment of finding a qualified buyer in less than three months. Wendy also personally attended the closing at the title company. We couldn't be happier with their professionalism and results. We will be using Lockhart and Associates to list, market and sell our personal residence.
