Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Historic Kenwood, Saint Petersburg, FL.

My partner and I have dealt with many real estate agents over the years.

I contacted Sonny online and advised him that my partner and I were considering relocating to St. Petersburg and would be down for a few days and would like to have a look at neighborhoods and perhaps look at a few houses in our price range.

He was very responsive and graciously agreed to spend a day with us. When we arrived at his office he setup our parameters in the database, printed out numerous possibilities, and off we went.

We didn't see anything that was just right that first day so Sonny sent us a batch of listings that evening to review. We found several more that we wanted to see the next day. Despite his already full schedule that day, he managed to fit us in and that was the magic day. We found a house that we loved and purchased.

Sonny is very knowledgeable about neighborhoods and life in the Tampa/St Pete area. He is very professional yet friendly and easy to get to know. We felt like we were viewing properties with a friend more than an agent.

He and his team are all very helpful and responsive, and even though we've been through this process many times before, he was there for us when and if we needed him. I highly recommend him to anyone needing an agent here in the area.

Sold a home in 2014.

Sonny was absolutely fabulous! He was very professional and honest with me and gave great advice. He let me know to expect about 60 days and my house would be sold and he was right! He was super easy to communicate with and always got back to me very quickly. I thought selling my house was going to be pretty stressful but Sonny made everything so easy. I work pretty far from home and have a dog so I worried about her during the showings and definitely did not want to crate her for 9 hours. Sonny made sure his assistant was there to help with my dog which really put my mind at ease. Selling my house was a really pleasant experience and I highly recommend Sonny to everyone!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $800K in Bayshore Beautiful, Tampa, FL.

Sonny was fantastic. I've worked with several realtors on past purchases and sales and Sonny was definitely the best. He was extremely knowledgeable and understood exactly what we were looking for. He was honest and communicated his thoughts to us. It was clear that he was always looking out for our best interest. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering a new place here in the Tampa area. You won't be disappointed!!

Sonny is super-responsive and knows his stuff. He knows the area really well. His guidance is valuable and he's always willing to go the extra mile. He sold our house in about a week and we were thrilled

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Isla Del Sol, St Petersburg, FL.

Sonny went over and above to facilitate our 2nd home purchase in St. Petersburg. His knowledge and expertise guided us to great choices, and he listened and followed up very quickly throughout the purchase process. We will use his services again in the future for sure.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Gandy-Sun Bay South, Tampa, FL.

Sonny was my listing agent and buyer's agent for my last move. His professionalism and expertise were exemplary. Our house sold after only 2 days on the MLS, and he was able to assist me in getting everything I wanted at my new home. I would highly recommend Sonny Hotchkiss for anyone looking to list their home, or relocate in the Tampa Bay area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Riverview, FL.

It really was a pleasure to work with Mr. Hotchkiss to learn more about the real estate market in the greater Tampa Bay area. Sonny worked with me to review a listing of homes I selected for review in the south Tampa area in an effort to either sell my current home in Riverview, FL, or keep my current home and rent it as an investment property and buy a new home in south Tampa.

I purchased my home in 2007 near the height of the real estate bubble, so I wanted to learn as many options as possible in the selling, buying, and rental process. After reviewing the listings I selected from Zillow, Sonny developed a professional portfolio with additional information on the properties and surrounding area.

What impressed me the most was the list of properties Sonny was able to find that I couldn't find, and the flexible schedue he created for me to see them in person. Given all of the changes in the real estate market and financial lending process in place today, Sonny provided expert guidance to make the process stress free and interesting. If you are interested in working with someone who is born and raised in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area, has a dynamic personality, and niche for real estate in this area, Sonny Hotchkiss is the one to beat.
