My family and I are relocating to the Tampa area and were looking for a real-estate agent to help find a new home. Mike and Susan were recommended by a coworker and I couldn't have been happier with the recommendation!
My wife and I (and two year old son) had one week to find a new place and had a pretty long list of needs and wants. Mike and Susan set up appointments to view homes for the week; and after spending the first day with us, they listened to what we liked and didn't like about the houses, went back that night and revamped the list and schedule of viewings for the week. They were spot on with the recommendations and we have several great options by the end of the week. We ended up purchasing home that we absolutely love!
They were absolutely wonderful to work with. Spent a lot of time touring us and acclimating us to the area and were great with our little boy, who as you can imagine did not find viewing homes all that much fun.
I would highly recommend Mike and Susan to anyone who is looking for a real estate professional in the the area! They listen and take a personnel interest in you finding a home that you love! Thank You!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Indian Rocks Beach, FL.
Mike picked us up one Saturday morning and began to show us houses. Everything that we were interested in we got to see. Karen had found a house the night before that had just been listed. Mike was able to contact the agent while we were in his car and we saw that house the same day. It ended up being the house we bought. He helped facilitate the house inspection. During the inspection, I began to guess about installing a pool. Within 15 minutes he was able to get a pool installer to come by the house during the inspection. We had a very narrow window to make an offer before we had to return home. Both Mike and Susan had all the offer material ready for us in a very professional manner. Mike was available at the drop of a hat to answer any questions we had. We were very impressed with the breadth of Coastal's services and look forward to using them whenever we decide to sell later on.
Very knowledgable about local market. Good listeners who were able to eliminate some listings they knew would not be a good fit for us. Answered our questions promptly and honestly. I know they were busy with other clients but they really made us feel like their priority. Very happy with their work
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Largo, FL.
Susan & Mike helped me get an amazing condo in Largo, FL. Their knowledge of the area and patience listening to what I wanted, help sort through the various options. My first trip to look was not successful but they waited till I was ready. I am now a proud home owner with a view that is one of a kind.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Palm Harbor, FL.
Mike, Susan, and Phil made the sale and purchase process fun! They are knowledgable, easy going, patient, and took care of us like family. I cannot imagine a better experience as a seller and a buyer. They sold our home in 3 weeks, helped us stage it and market it, priced it perfectly, and then found us the perfect new home.
Mike and Susan Jansen are rocket-fuel realtors. They quickly responded to our questions, listed and marketed our property on an international level, honestly and expeditiously handled the negotiations, and sold our condo in less than a month. There were absolutely no surprises at closing. In a tricky real estate market like this one, only seasoned professional realtors, like Mike and Susan Jansen, can make things happen. If you really want to sell your property, list it with the Coastal Properties Group, LLC.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Dunedin, FL.
They were absolutely fantastic. Their market knowledge was very detailed, and they steered me in the right direction with regards to areas of town. They did a great job with the price negotiation; even though we ended up paying what I had planned, they knew exactly what to offer initially in order to end up there. They were very responsive with all questions, and they had a great network (financing, insurance, inspectors, etc.) all of whom reflected very well and also were talented and easy to work with. This was my best home buying experience yet, and I would recommend them to anyone.
Wonderful experience working with the Jansens, they are extremely knowledgeable concerning the market and pricing, they are masterful in their negotiating skills, would not purchase or sell another home without their insight and expertise
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.175M in Belleair Beach, FL.
Mike was very professional and had great knowledge of the market. He was instrumental in negotiating an early lease termination with our tenants in order for us to sell the house in a rapidly escalating real estate market in Belleair Beach.
