My husband and I cannot speak highly enough about Alfred "Abbie" Valentine (Abbie to us). We moved to Southwest Florida approximately one year before the pandemic with the intention of renting short term. When the pandemic continued and the housing market changed, we were feeling rather hopeless about buying a home. Enter Abbie. He was able to secure showings of potential homes very quickly (often premarket or within hours of the listing going live). Walking through houses with Abbie is like being with a certified home inspector. He points out the aspects of the “bones” of the house from structural to electrical to roofs. He points our the strengths and weaknesses of a home. We appreciate his “non-pushy” nature when considering a property. Abbie works hard to quickly and thoroughly research comps and get you the best possible purchase price. His advice is based on facts and not opinion. Abbie helped us write a competitive offer on two homes these past two years! What’s more, he advised us on an investment property he helped us purchase, negotiated tenants, and helped us create a lease. Basically, he does it all! Perhaps one of our favorite things about Abbie is his integrity. He is respectful and honest. He is hard- working and responsive. He loves his family and prioritizes them. This is how I knew our family could trust him to have our best interest in mind. Actually, we refereed our parents to Abbie for their property search and Abbie secured them a home they love! We honestly believe we won’t find another agent like Abbie. We will continue to refer him to our closest friends and family for our housing needs.
