Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Safety Harbor, FL.
Blake Real Estate is a small up and coming agency in Tampa Bay FL. Rick worked closely with me, but was never overbearing or demanding. He's easy to work with and knows the market. He uses technology to sell homes and keeps innovating his practices.
I would highly recommend Blake Real Estate for real estate transactions in Tampa Bay.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Historic Kenwood, Saint Petersburg, FL.
The entire team at Blake Realty made purchasing a home seem so easy, but it was all of their hard work and effort that made finding our dream home possible. Thank you so much, for guiding us through every step to home ownership! =)

Richard Blake has put together a staff of knowledgable agents who have recenly helped us purchase a home in Palm Harbor Florida. Victoria Lippincott and Micaela Nesselroad worked with us for over a year without hesitation until we felt the time was right for us to purchase. They were knowledgable and fun, guiding us through the process from beginning to end. I highly recommend this Real Estate Company.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Clearwater, FL.
We first met Richard when he helped our son successfully buy a home about 18 months ago. We decided to give him our business because of his local knowledge.
We have been very happy and satisfied with that decision. He worked patiently and diligently as we work through home inventories and our having to revise our expectations, budget and target areas. When it was all said and done we decided to take a risk on a short sale and with Richards guidance it has worked out to get us the right house in the right location. Lots of improvements necessary to get the home how we want it, but that is what we signed up for.
Richard was great and I would highly recommend him to any prospective clients
I did not work with Richard Blake, but I did correspond with Micaela Nesselroad. We are in PA and there was a house in Tarpon Springs in which we were interested. She worked with us very professionally, yet was very personable. If she couldnot answer our questions immediately, she was prompt in finding the answer. We look forward to working with her in the future as our plans materialize.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Palm Harbor, FL.
The whole process was very smooth and happened very quick. Our agent Debbie was always in contact with use during each step of the process. Getting us an amazing deal. She also took such great care of us as if we were family. Couldn't ask for a better agent and will never go elsewhere for our home buying or selling needs! Will be telling all my friends and family to go to Blake realty.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Oldsmar, FL.
Roberta made it very easy for me to purchase my condo even though I am in MN. All the paperwork was electronic and efficient. The time spent helping me search for the right place was helpful because she knew the area so well. I would recommend Blake Realty to anyone looking for a home in Pinellas County.
After our home did not sell while using another real estate agent for over a year; we decided to give Richard's agressive marketing tactics a shot. At first we were a bit skeptical because the market has been so tough. But we started getting lots of activity as soon as we listed with him and he just sold our beach home for much higher than the zestimate value! Thanks Richard!
