Bought a home in 2013.
Norms attention to detail, gentle nature and market acumen combine beautifully to create a great buying experience. Both of our closings were long distance and Norm ensured the closings went smoothly. We continue to rely on Norm for our real estate needs as our family members make the move to the Whitfield Estates area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Indian Beach-Sapphire Shores, Sarasota, FL.
Normed worked very hard to find us the absolute most perfect house for all of our needs. His tireless persistence to keep looking every day in our price, and location was very appreciated. Because we are in a different state, he even went out and looked at homes on my behalf, took photos and emailed them to me. Now thats service!!! Once we started the bidding process, Im glad Norm was on our side and not theirs. Wow can he negotiate. He shared professionally with the homeowners agent, why the price should be lower. His even mild and professional manner was never off putting, but was persuasive enough for them to meet us closer to our price. Throughout the entire inspection phase he was there at every turn, and worked closely with the inspector to insure we were aware of all of the areas needing work, and therefor no surprises when we were in. Because we live in another state, he went to and did the entire closing for us, emailing documents for us to sign, scan and email back. It was very organized and went smoothly. As a bonus, his past job was with the county so he is very solid on the policy and governmental procedure side of the business. He continues to go above and beyond the call of duty at every turn. We were touched by his overly generous closing gift, and he has provided me with names of painters, title companies, tile guys, lawn, pool and cleaning services and met us out for breakfast when we were in town. He works non stop and even has his phone on vacations. He truly is a super human and super agent....and super likable as well. Run, don't walk to use Norm Lupino for your agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Bradenton, FL.
Norm is THE best! He immediately becomes your friend. We had to interview quite a few Agents before listing our house again after a VERY bad experience with a dishonest and lazy Realtor and his Broker, and Norm's optimism made him stand out from the rest. He didn't come in making false promises and we could tell he truly appreciated our home. He is ALWAYS available (from 6:30AM until 11PM!) and goes above and beyond the call of duty. Norm is soft spoken and stays calm, even when faced with complications like communication issues with potential buyers and/or their Agents. He really stays on top of things and works hard to make sure EVERYBODY is happy. If you are selling your house - do YOURSELF a favor and call Norm! We sure are glad we did!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $50K in Bradenton, FL.
We were looking for a condo in Bradenton while living in Michigan. Norm Luppino would tour the condo, take pictures and email them to us and critique the overall condition and location. Once a selection was made he checked the comparable sales and helped negotiate a lower purchasing price. He made sure we had all needed information regarding the condo association and regulations and helped expedite the purchase. When we called with questions or concerns he was prompt to respond and always gave us the impression that this sale was important to him despite the fact that it was a very modest purchase. He went so far as to meet the home inspector at the condo and call us about the impending report. The sale was completed within a month of our offer and all was done electronically thanks to the professional attention and integrity of Norm Lappino.

Norm visited our home after we called him regarding listing it, and suggested all we should do and/or complete prior to listing, and we tried to comply with all his requests to the best of our ability. He then took photos of every room, the lanai, exterior, and bathrooms, all of which photos were not only very good, but far superior to many listings we looked at on Zillow and other sites. Our home was listed in early September and closed on October 30, after going to contract in about two weeks. We were advised of showings and feedback when received, and he was readily available for questions or help in any way. He is very personable and considerate of his clients. We have already recommended Norm to folks we know and would do so at any time. He lives in the area and knows it well and is himself a member of the Homeowners' Association, thereby keeping current on all that is going on in the area. All in all, Norm Lupino is a very professional Realtor.

Norm is the ultimate professional with the patience of a Saint! My husband and I (from New England) were exploring the Sarasota area and came across Norm through a listing that my husband liked. Norm took us to see the listing which my husband loved and I hated! Poor Norm, withstood our immediate bickering and off we we went back home. I spent the next year with Norm via email looking at areas and homes that we both felt would satisfy our requirements. He never gave up on us and gave us the detailed attention and guidance we required. By the end of our year long search we ended up buying in a lovely area in Osprey which gives me proximity to water and my husband the social activities of a community. Norm made the process smooth and seamless every step of the way. Our transition as full time residents to Sarasota County is now complete!

Sold a home in 2013.
Not only did he sell our old home, but he patiently showed us about 25 to 30 condos to consider. He was never pushy. He recommended financial institutions to handle the sales and purchase of both homes. It was seamless. He is also very well informed of the market and area we were interested in. We were very pleased.

Norm is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. His knowledge of the area and values led us in negotiating a great deal for our new property. We have already mentioned his name to friends interested in the area and would recommend him to anyone. Great job Norm!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Sarasota, FL.
My brother lives in Sarasota and I had a great desire to live near him as I retire. When a home became available in the exact location we desire, Norm helped us with all the details. In fact it was not a home that I ever walked through but between my brother and Norm I knew this was the house for me. I felt like he treated us as his only customer. He was terrific in every way. We did get our new home but more importantly we feel we’ve gained a friend. He was professional and made the process very friendly and easy. He was there for me every step of the way. He kept me informed all the time. I was able to communicate with him as often as I needed. I was out of town during the whole process and he took care of all the details. He was able to put me in contact with people that made it possible for me to address all kind of situations. If you want to do it right and with ease, Norm is your Real Estate Agent. Thank you Norm!!!
