Bryan Sykes has been very valuable to myself and various friends of mine to acquire properties in Clearwater and Sand Key Beaches. He assisted me in purchasing a residential condo for my personal use, as well as two townhouses for rental purposes. He also assisted various persons I referred to him. We have all been very satisfied with his services. He is very knowledgeable of the Clearwater Beach/Sand Key markets and inventory, including pricing and trends. He has immediate and thorough knowledge of laws and regulations in this industry and, best of all, he responds very quickly to calls to review issues or simply chat. I would use him and recommend him again without any hesitation.

Very professional, definitely knows his way around contracts. Very supportive and stepped up beyond the call of duty during my negotiation. He negotaited thoroughly on my behalf with the Seller and bank during my tender on a Short sale when all the while I was out of the country and he would fill me in and ask for direction during the day or via email etc...
Helped me rent a Condo home in Clearwater Beach Association, Clearwater Beach, FL.
I was referred to Bryan and was interested in finding beach front rental property. I live in another state than Florida and Bryan suggested a property to me which is located across the street from Clearwater Beach. I took a trip to Clearwater Beach to look at the property and decided to buy it and closed on the property all without ever meeting Bryan since we was out of town at the time. This property turned out to be the best investment I ever made in my life! I've estimated based on current and future cash flows the property has doubled in value since I bought it and it also provides significant passive monthly income!
Sold a home in 2013 in Clearwater Beach, Clearwater, FL 33767.
My business relationship with Bryan began over five years ago. I am a resident of Clearwater Beach Florida and I also owned a rental property. Bryan assisted me in finding renters for that property. I was very pleased with his detail oriented business style. He communicated with me throughout the entire process of locating the right person/people for the property. I am happy to say that he found the very best renters I have ever had the experience of dealing with and I attribute that to Bryan's dedication to customer satisfaction.
I have since sold that property and he was the selling agent. Not only did he sell the property in a timely manner, he got me more money than I thought I could get for the property which really impressed me!
If I am ever in the market for a new home/condominium in the Clearwater Beach area Bryan would be the first and only realtor I would work with. He has certainly proven himself to me and I am grateful for the business relationship I have with him. Thanks to Bryan he made what could have been a stressful selling process into a profitable and enjoyable experience!
Bought a Condo home in 2010 for approximately $350K in Clearwater Beach Association, Clearwater Beach, FL.
Friends of mine referred me to Bryan back in 2010, since then I bought 2 homes from him and he also helped us find a great long term tenant to fill one of our homes we bought as an investment. He definitely have the eye for great offers available on an off the market. Bryan is very professional and has a good work ethic. I do recommend him to anyone in need of a great realtor.
Good luck Bryan in your future endeavors, stay in touch!

Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $350K in Sand Key Civic Association, Clearwater, FL.
I meet Bryan when I was looking to buy a property in Clearwater Beach. He was the selling realtor of the water front beach condominium I purchased. He seemed very professional and knowledgeable, so When I decide to sell a couple of years later, I contacted him. I was very pleased with the way he handled the listing, very dedicated,
professional, and knew the right way to approach potential buyers. He sold my property in 30 days, and at the asking price.
I would highly recommend Bryan as a Real State Professional.

Bought a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $775K in Sand Key Civic Association, Clearwater, FL.
From the moment we crossed paths with Bryan he did everything in his power to make the buying process very smooth. His knowledge and expertise and the way everything was handled was nothing less than professional. He is certainly one of the nicest individuals we have met and would have no problems referring his name to others.
Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Island Estate Civic Association, Clearwater Beach, FL.
Bryan's market knowledge was the thing that first impressed us. He knew virtually everything regarding the area and specific buildings. He worked tirelessly for us and kept us informed of showings and provided feedback at all times. His ability to read the market and understand clients' needs was very beneficial to us financially. We would recommend Bryan to both buyers and sellers without hesitation.

Bryan was the ultimate professional. We had gone through a couple of other realtors. When we met Bryan he was very interested in what we were lookiing to buy. He showed us 3 properties all we liked but just not right. These properties were a lot closer to otwhat we were looking. He did not waiste our time Showing us properties we did not have any interest in. When i would call him he would call me back in a matter of minutes.
We finaally found what we were looking for. Bryan negotiated the contract, the seller was a bit difficult at times I did not think it would close. But Bryan stepped in and held it together for us. Truely a different realtor than any of the others we had.
