It's difficult to find an ideal property that fits your budget and in the meantime convenient for you to commute to your work place. It's even more difficult if you are an international student that cannot get any mortgage from the bank in US. Then, a good realtor agent is the key for us to be able to find any property to fit our cash budget and also easy for us to commute to school. Grant is the agent that can fulfill all these tough requirements and foresee the difficulties ahead of you. Feel blessed to contact him initially when we tried to get a property in Miami.
I would like to share my experience of working with Mr. Grant Vreeland who significantly facilitated my real estate transaction in Miami.
To start with, Grant was the first one to promptly reply to my letter of inquiry sent to a number of real estate brokers in Miami, he patiently spent a lot of time explaining to me all the specific details of the transaction (via all possible means of communication). It took him quite some time to resolve a substantial number of minor, but nonetheless time consuming issues given my status of a non-resident alien and the fact that I reside on the other side of the Atlantic.
But it would be a very "technical" and incomplete description of my experience, if I hadn't mentioned a very important thing about Grant. He is not only a broker, but a thoughtful and very smart investor. Grant can easily switch between two different approaches: an investment and a long-term owner. He can act as your team player discussing investment perspectives, advantages and drawbacks of various Miami and Tampa neighborhoods or meticulously look up for the object you want to find. Even if you have in mind a particular idea about a house or a condo he would offer various alternatives that he considers to be of equal or greater value to you.
Another important aspect: with Grant you would always be aware who and why should be hired in your particular case, what's worth paying for and what's not. Everyone we were working with in my transaction did their job perfectly and strictly according to the pre-defined schedule, which is not a common thing in Miami. Grant was always there to offer his professional services, but never insisting on being the sole provider of these services. It has always been and would be a deliberate and pre-thought choice of his client.
I strongly recommend Grant as your real estate broker for transactions in Florida no matter where you come from.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Miami, FL.
Grant is an amazing realtor. I was searching for a home and it took me a year with other realtor until I met Grant and with his knowledge, negotiations skills and profenilism I found exactly what I was looking for in just a week. Thank you for helping me throughout this process.
A great experience from the first phone call. Grant knows the business and transcends his vast knowledge to you. He hones in on your style and selects properties that suit you. Always professional and accommodates you in setting up appointments to see the listings. A great negotiator, always getting the best possible price with extensive market research. Grant also takes a lead role in working with your finance company to facilitate all needs for closing. Grant makes purchasing a home a enjoyable and takes away the stress from the buyer. I have bought 2 properties with Grant and looking for more.

My name is Nelly, and I had the pleasure of working with Grant as my real estate agent when buying my first home.
As a single woman it can be a very scary process, but Grant along with his assistant Selin, made it very painless and as easy as possible.
They are very knowledgeable and very direct when it came to properties in the greater Miami area, even when it came to assisting me with finding a lender .
Whenever I had a question they were always there . Even after office hours . It was great !!!
I'm very happy I used Zillow and found a great agent .

Grant is an extremely hard worker and has extensive experience in the Florida market.
He also doesn't make any promises he can't keep. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for an investment property or a home for themselves.
I met Grant Vreeland through a mutual friend little more than a month ago. Even before we met in person, he showed an earnest and sincere interest in facilitating my purchase of a new home. Indeed, he took the time to travel from Miami to assist me in Tampa and then displayed the utmost diligence, knowledge and expertise in ensuring that I was well represented.
In addition to my great pleasure at meeting Grant, I was extremely grateful for his professional representation of my interests.
Grant was great. He can look at a property and tell you if it's on target or not immediately. I got a "distressed" property in a great spot and he negotiated, a nice chunk of change off of the price. Great job!
