Ratings & Reviews

I would recommend Raquel to anyone who is looking for a home! She is always quick to respond, she is very knowledgeable of the housing market, and doesn't put any pressure on you to make a decision. She will give you her honest opinion instead of just trying to get you into a home. Many realtors have the persona of the "used car salesman" and want you to purchase a house as quickly as possible as that's how they get paid. That is what seperates Raquel from the rest. She actually understands what you as the buyer want, she will always provide an honest opinion on a home whether good or bad based on your needs, and she doesn't try to talk up every house she shows you. I truly enjoyed my time in working with Raquel in the purchase of my first home and in 3-5 years when I upgrade to my next home I can promise she will be my listing agent for this house and buying agent for my next home! I will refer anyone looking for a realtor to look no further than Raquel!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Riverview, FL.

I can not say enough positive comments about my experience with Raquel. She has been the most amazing realtor, from her professionalism, experience, hard work and enthusiasm, it has made buying our home far from what you would normally expect. We have two year old twin boys and we needed to upgrade our current situation (we live in a townhouse), as you can imagine our time to look at houses was very limited. Raquel always made sure that when we did look at homes she had numerous listings to go to at once and she worked around MY schedule not hers. Plus she looked after the babies while me and my husband walked around the home together - what other realtor would do that! Raquel was always available to answer ALL of my questions about everything from the houses themselves, the neighborhood, the mortgage process, everything. Her opinion and knowledge was invaluable - think about - most people have no idea "how" to buy a home but Raquel put my mind at ease. Once we put a bid on a house (keep in mind there were 5 for this house and we beat out the others because of her) she had referrals for everything we needed - mortgage broker, inspectors, insurance, etc. - and they too were great. Especially Mike with Academy Mortgage - I can't say enough great things about him as well! Bottom line is Raquel is an amazing realtor that everyone should call no matter if you want to buy or sell - I guarantee you will not be disappointed.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Ruskin, FL.

We closed on our house last Friday, January the 30th and through the entire process Raquel was excellent. I work in the mortgage industry myself and found her to both knowledgeable and extremely responsive. She came very highly recommended by a co-worker and once you work with her you can tell why. Just tell her what you're looking for and she won't steer you wrong.  More Less
