Ratings & Reviews

Norma Rea is the best! Norma was recommended to us by our realtor in California when we moved to Ponte Vedra Beach (PVB) two years ago. We corresponded with Norma before we arrived to discuss what we were looking for in a home. With Norma's expertise and guidance we found a home we loved in three days. A short time ago, we decided to sell our home and purchase one (also in PVB) with a swimming pool. Norma did a fantastic job in advertising our home and finding a seller, at the same time looking for a home with a pool for us. Norma is also an impressive negotiator, not only for a sales or purchase price, but also in ironing out all of the kinks that come up during a closing. She also stays on top of things and ensures deadlines are met from the time an offer is made/accepted until she's sitting with us at the closing table. We know we're in good hands with Norma as our realtor. We highly recommend her!

Being in the real estate world at one time, I know there are real good as well as real bad agents. Norma did a fantastic job working with us by looking out for our best interest and keeping the transaction as stress-free as possible. It was a joy to work with such a professional - we’ll be sure to mention her name anytime someone is talking about real estate…It would be pleasure to recommend her whenever we can.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.

We immediately felt 100% trust with Norma. We knew what we wanted in a home, and Norma helped us find it quickly. There is no doubt that if we ever buy or sell another home in Ponte Vedra, Norma will be our trusted partner. Can't recommend her highly enough!

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.

FIVE STARS for Norma Rea! We met Norma Rea when we first moved to Ponte Vedra Beach in 2002. Over the years as we passed each other on the way to the Beach, we would ask Norma for advice concerning real estate and she always freely shared experiences and gave us guidance as a friend as she was not a Real Estate Agent at the time. In the Spring of 2013, we decided to list our condo in Ponte Vedra Beach. We knew that Norma would be the BEST choice and would do a fantastic job selling our condo. She helped us with every step and we completely trusted her judgement. After listing the condo, we sat back and enjoyed spending time at the Beach as Norma did everything in her power for our listing She was successful. Our sale was complete in less than two months and she took care of every single detail for a very smooth transaction. We were 100% pleased with her skills as a real estate agent and highly recommend her.

Thank you for taking the time to write this, especially considering your busy schedule! You're very kind... What a pleasure it was to work with you both. Now we just have to figure out how to get you back for visits to Ponte Vedra Beach...? I truly thank you for your confidence in me and I'm so thrilled that you were pleased with the results. Best Regards, Norma

Bought a home in 2013 in Isle of Palms, Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250.

For two first-time homebuyers, it was great having Norma on our side. Her extensive knowledge and experience helped us through the entire real estate purchase process from start to finish, which was especially helpful when dealing with a mortgage company that seemed to be doing everything possible to ruin the deal.

The property we purchased was actually a four unit apartment complex intended as an investment. The skill with which Norma Rea handled our specific needs goes to show that her knowledge transcends the world of just single family homes. Whatever your specific situation, be sure to give Norma a call before selecting an agent in the Ponte Vedra/Jacksonville area. You'll be glad you did.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.

We have bought and sold many properties. Of all the realtors we have used, Norma was by far the best we have used. Norma always followed through and kept us well informed. There were many rough spots with this sale. Norma navigated us through them and kept the sale moving forward She even found us a handy man to fix the inspection items required by the buyer. I would highly recommend Norma.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to work with you! While I know it was difficult, the two of you remained calm and were an absolute pleasure to work with. I truly hope that the next time you're in Ponte Vedra, we can get together. Until then... Please keep in touch!

Bought a home in 2012 in Palm Valley, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082.

What can I say: Norma is simply amazing at her job. She is knowledgeable about the local market and is in control of the entire process. What impressed me the most with Norma is that she cares about her clients. She advised me several times against making an offer on certain houses and was very patient until we found the perfect one. I fully recommend her. She is the best I have seen in the business!

I want to thank you for that lovely review you wrote.. I'm glad that you realize that I care about my clients. I genuinely do! It's such an important decision that you're making and we want to make it as right as possible. One of the other pleasures I have in this business, is I get to meet such wonderful people, such as yourself and Rachel.. It's such as added benefit... It's been my pleasure to work with you both.. To find you such a lovely home by the beach and now to be working on your investment property.. To be allowed that privilege, from a person with your means and knowledge, is a great compliment. Thank you so much!

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Ponte Vedra, FL

This was a very rude person. I responded to a listing she had via email on Nov 16th to obtain info on house . She sent info on the listing Nov 16 and then she sent email on Nov 18th that basically, if I didn't respond as promptly as she would like, then she could better utilize her time elsewhere... when I emailed her that she would probably be better off doing just that... she wrote nasty email back... this was going back and forth... I finally told her that she had, indeed, had the last word.. hoped that it made her feel good and to take my name/email, etc out of her system... any further emails from her would be treated as spam. Totally unprofessional and NOT an agent I would choose to work with at all !

Goodness....We never want to upset anyone. If I did, I certainly apologize. This seams to be the comment, I made, that has upset him so... "If you would prefer for me not to continue to follow up, just kindly advise so I know how to delegate my time." I'm also sorry that he interpreted this as being rude. Many clients are in need or wishing immediate contact and many are just asking a curious questions. We most often, do not know which we are dealing with. We also try and be respectful of clients that are not wishing continuous contact. I'll do my best to clarify that in the future.

We have known Norma Rea for many years, socially at first. Then last year we had occasion to use her services to buy a property. She has a solid business background and is business savvy. Besides she is a real estate investor herself and knows what to look for and her advice is sound. She works hard and we are very pleased. We have no hesitation in recommending her to serious buyers and sellers.
