Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $50K in Clearwater, FL.
While Lee already came highly recommended by a common friend, he actually managed to exceed my expectations. The transaction he assisted with, was not a standard one. I was a Canadian on a budget, looking to buy real estate in Florida.
The unit I ended up purchasing was an REO, with some strings attached. He had solutions when we got stuck in the process, due to seller’s unwillingness to cooperate. He was always responsive (email and phone), making the Canada/Florida distance look seamless.
He used technology (electronic signature) to complete the transaction, which made it very easy and convenient to get the paperwork done.
To summarize my experience with Lee in a few words, he was knowledgeable, responsive, honest, transparent, supportive, and perseverant.
I highly recommend him and homesbox.com, and will definitely use Lee again, if I decide to purchase another property in Florida.
My experience with Lee Costache has been nothing but positive. He originally helped me find and purchase my condo in 2005. He made the home buying process smooth and easy. When the time came to sell my condo this year I called Lee and he quickly began the process. I could not be happier with Lee and the work he did for me. He is organized, efficient, prompt and the best at what he does. The process of selling my home went faster than I could have ever anticipated. It was truly stress free. I would recommend Lee Costache without reservation to anyone.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $25K in Greater Pinellas Point, St Petersburg, FL.
I purchased two condos in St. Petersburg recently. Lee was my realtor, and I could not have asked for a more knowledgeable and professional person to assist me with the process. Lee is amazing, and does a thorough and meticulous job. I would eagerly reccomend him, and I am confident he will impress whoever he is working for.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $350K in St Pete Beach, FL.
My husband and I have always dreamt of becoming true snowbirds from Canada with a place in Florida of our own. Being from another country, Costache made it effortless for us to find and buy a place. He was incredibly personable, trustworthy and patient!! He made our dream a reality and we cannot thank him enough. We absolutely recommend his services to anyone needing a true real estate professional!
Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $75K in Seminole, FL.
Lee is the consummate professional. He keeps you informed of all the steps to be followed in both listing a property and selling. We have used his services twice, and in both instances found him to be extremely reliable and effective. We are Canadians who have been buying and selling real estate in Florida for a few years now. To have a trusted partner, is essential in these long-distance transactions. I cannot think anyone could have been a better Realtor for us than Lee.
I would recommend Lee to anyone. I told Lee what I was looking for and the price range of a apartment and I was talking to the landlord in two days ready to rent.
This apartment is working out very well for me and being a veteran I am able to stay connected with the bay pines va medical center which is only two miles away.
all the stores and beaches are close by and its only a half mile to catch the bus. I couldnt ask for a better place to live. This man went out of his way for me and I am very greatful.
Lee helped us buy a condo!
He made buying our condo an easy and memorable experience. Lee listened carefully to our needs & interest and then selected the location we were looking and provided us with just enough options not to be feeling overwhelmed. We completely have been able to trust Lee in all aspects of the buying process. Lee is dependable, knowledgeable, very organized, and detailed. We are impressed with Lee his dedication in the process and Lee his thoroughness has given us the possibility to really feel comfortable during the buying process. We will recommend Lee Alexander Costache to anyone in the market to buying, selling, leasing, and/or recommend him to people interested in real estate education!
Thank YOU, Lee! :)
Bought a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $300K in Palm Harbor, FL.
Great realtor who walks the extra mile in order to fulfill his customer's needs.
He possesses an impressive amount of knowledge about the local market and real estate practices.
Using Lee, our buying experience was pleasant and event-less.
Sold a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $275K in Oldsmar, FL.
We used Lee Costache to sell our Oldsmar home in 2007. We found Lee after he sold a neighboring home for an impressive price. We called Lee for an appointment. Lee was very easy to talk to and explained the process in easy to understand terms. That is important to us when your doing something as important as selling a home. Lots of Realtors seem to talk a good game but not all deliver. Experience counts a lot.
When it came time for us to evaluate an offer, Lee helped us with each of the decision points. His advice during the negotiation was very helpful because when you have that offer in your hand, it's hard to decide whether to counter offer or accept the offer as made. Everyone wants the most that they can get from thier home sale. We felt Lee helped us get the best price and close the deal.
Past experience has taught me that not everyone can sell. Lee can SELL. His skills at negotiation were exceptional. He made the process very easy for us. We look forward to using his services in our future purchases.
Lee served as President of Winding Creek Cono Associationfor the 2010-2011.
He guided us in managing the Association consisting of twenty one buildings with 194 Units plus common elements. He guided us in Budget process for the year and many contract negotiations plus all the elements associated in operation an association as large as this.
Lee was and is an excellant leader and demonstrated his knowledge in real estate and condo operations.
In my opinion he was one of the best Association Presidents we have ever had and we were well served by his business skills.
Having been a Postal Supervisor and a Postmaster I feel I can recognize his skills and work ethicsLee has.I would not hesitate to recommend him in any capacity.
