"I highly recommend John and Diane. They have represented me as buyer and seller on a number of different transactions. My former home was on the market for less than a month before we had a contract and ended up selling for a price we were more than satisfied with. 

I referred a family member to John and Diane. Her house was on the market for less than a day! While no one can expect that to happen every time, their local knowledge of the market, paired with their marketing abilities gives their clients a remarkable edge when buying or selling property. The level of trust they have built with their colleagues and high ethical standards also help to make each transaction as smooth as possible. 

I routinely refer friends, family, and my own clients to John and Diane, secure in the fact that they will provide an unparalleled level of service to their real estate needs."

~ Andrew, Attorney Sarasota


"John & Diane really know the Sarasota market - price points, location, services, etc. They are extremely attentive and go above and beyond in customer service. I 100% rely on their good judgment, advice, and recommendations on everything related to my condo. I am so lucky to have found them!"

~ Alicia D


"We have purchased two homes from John and Diane and was very pleased with them. They handled everything for us and things went very smooth. We would highly recommend them. We feel like they took care of us like family."

~ Marion M


"Diane and John sold a waterfront house for me, they were a pleasure to deal with, very complete in helping decide asking price, contract negotiations, document preparations, and closing."

~ JH Sarasota


"I have worked with John Garner and Diane Shane through several real estate transactions, and also one as a property manager for my rental unit. They are both terrific, were always available to me, and I couldn't have been more pleased with them! I especially like that they were realistic with me, very professional, and knowledgeable about the areas. They went out of their way to find answers when I needed them and knew the right local people to contact with questions. I would not hesitate to use them again and recommend them highly. They are the real deal!"
