Team reviews

I recently had the pleasure of working with Rick Fifer and his assistant, Mili Bailey, on the sale of my former home. Rick and Mili were always professional, pleasant and easy to work with. This was the first time that I sold a home so I had plenty of questions regarding the process. Rick and Mili always made themselves available to answer these questions and were able to provide answers to all of them. I would certainly recommend Rick and Mili to anyone buying or selling a home.

Sold a home in 2014 in Historic Old Northeast, Saint Petersburg, FL 33701.

What a great experience we had with Rick and his team! He sold two houses for us in Seminole Heights, both breaking records and closing quickly without any/many unexpected surprises. Rick was able to guide us through the sale of both properties with his expert knowledge of the other properties for sale in the area, the proper price-point to target for our houses, and the recommended updates to do before we listed. I would recommend Rick and his team to anyone looking to sell their Seminole Heights home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Seminole Heights, Tampa, FL.
Primary point of contact: Steven Myers

Rick and his team are great! Couldn't have had a better experience buying a house in a new city!!! His buyers agent Steven has been the biggest help. He would meet me anytime I called to show me houses. He also did a great job of negotiating. He is very knowledgable of the area and even took my fiancé and I to some great local resturantes .

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Old Seminole Heights, Tampa, FL.

I was a 1st time home buyer, so looking to buy a house was a very daunting task. I actually went through two other realtors before I came across Rick Fifer and Florida Executive Realty. Rick was very informative and knew the areas that I was looking in very well, so he was quick to point out whether or not a home was priced properly for the location and condition of the house. He was also unafraid of telling me what he honestly thought about a house and the pricing of it when looking at properties, no matter how much I liked it, which was very refreshing and showed to me at least that he wasn't just trying to get me into any house. He was honestly looking to get me in a house I wanted. The home that I did end up purchasing was exactly what I was looking for and I couldn't be happier. Even at closing Rick was able to walk me through what everything was and made me feel more comfortable about the purchase and signing the papers. I also work with one of his associates Steven Myers, who was also very helpful and responsive any time I had a question throughout the whole process. I would definately recommend Rick and his team to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Tampa Bay area.

Rick helped us both buy and sell a home in the Seminole Heights area of Tampa. I highly recommend anyone interested in this area to call upon him. He has the insiders knowledge of the area and also is spot on in pricing. Thanks Rick!

Rick is very knowledgeable, responsive and made the whole process of buying a house easy. He listened to what I was looking for and worked to find appropriate properties to look at. He gave several solid recommendations for businesses to use for all facets of the buying process. I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Lowry Park Central, Tampa, FL 33604

I contacted Rick to see if I could use him as an agent because I am interested in a historic bungalow and he represents on his website that he has experience with the Seminole Heights neighborhood. I left a message for him and it took four days for him to return my call. When I finally spoke with him, the conversation lasted ten seconds and then he said he had to take another important call and would call me right back. He never did. I found another agent and am very happy with her. When I told her about my experience with Rick, she said a lot of agents she knows have had difficulties showing his clients' properties because of his lack of organization.

While Ms.Drupiewski, may have been upset, it is hardly how I do business and her last comment borders on defamation and slander. 2014 has started out as a crazy year and my Team is certainly experiencing some growing pains. With 15 pending and sold homes in 7 weeks it has been tough to keep up with all of the inquiries and requests but our goal is to competently serve as many Buyers and Sellers as possible. In the case of Ms Drupiewski, unfortunately, existing customers (whether buyers or sellers) must take precedence over potential new business. If her new agent is working for her that is great. Most individuals in my experience do not slam an individual who clearly was too busy to take on another customer, they simply move on.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Old Seminole Heights, Tampa, FL.

Working with Rick was a wonderful experience. We were looking for someone that had the inside story of the neighborhood - Rick knows the area and he knows and is friends with many of the people in the neighborhoods. I was impressed that he could name people on the streets, what the neighborhoods did as a community and he told it to us, good news and bad. I really appreciated that he was honest on every point. As we were interested in a historic home, I was really impressed that he knew the styles, could point out was authentic and what upgrades were done well and which were either done outside of the home's character or done with poor craftsmanship. The home that we selected would need renovations and Rick was right there with us as were brought in contractors and his feedback was really wonderful. You cannot go wrong with Rick - he will take good care of you, honestly and ethically. We will hire Rick again when we decide to sell our home. Absolutely recommend his services.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Ybor City, Tampa, FL.

I have worked with Rick Fifer in both the buying and selling of multiple properties over the last several years. It has been a pleasure to work with Rick, and I will continue to work with him in the future. My only regret is not finding him sooner. My suggestions to other buyers is listen to Rick's advice. Sometimes neighborhoods are not as bad as they might seem on the surface, give them a chance. And some advice to home sellers; do what Rick says even if you don't want to, you are helping yourself in the end with higher sales price! Give the pro a call, you won't regret it.
