Do you want to know the truth about how to sell a home in today's real estate market?
If you try and find information on what REALTORS® are doing, it seems you get information overload.
With many of the homes on the market failing to sell even in a very strong market, it is obvious that most home selling plans are not effective.
Would you hire somebody if they told you they had a 50% chance of selling your home? The fact is, that is most usually the case during the first listing period.
The Traditional "How To Sell A Home" Plan
The National Association of REALTORS® conducts a survey of homebuyers each year in order to uncover trends in their buying habits and home buying methods. Would it surprise you to find that most home buyers are now using the internet during the process of buying a home? In fact, the NAR survey report that 94% of home buyers used the internet during the most recent purchase of their home.
Obviously, if all the buyers are corralled in one location, you would think that most home selling plans would be targeted to drive massive amounts of traffic to specialized web sites geared to display, present, and sell properties. But as you have seen from the video above, that is not the case.
How To Sell A Home - Progressive Property Marketing Plan
Fortunately, there is another way.
Joe Manausa Real Estate has embraced the fact that 94% of home buyers are using the internet.
We have developed the most aggressive, targeted, internet marketing program designed to bring a rush of buyers to our listed properties.
Take a few minutes to speak with us about our Progressive Property Marketing Plan, I promise it's like nothing you've ever seen.
This is how to sell a home on the Internet!

Marcus Edenfield is by far the BEST realtor we have found! When we decided to make the move to Tallahassee, we had a very short window of time to find a home. He was "on call" for us and made it seem that we were his only clients. Once we found our home, he made the closing process SO much less stressful than it otherwise would have been! I can't say enough good things about him, and would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent in this area! Thanks, Marcus, for making our Tallahassee home experience WONDERFUL!Michelle Whitney
I had a very positive experience working with the whole team at Manausa - Lindsey, Kevin, Andy, Ron, and Cay were all wonderful. They spent a lot of time with us explaining the Tallahassee real estate market and what we could expect. They all promptly returned our calls and texts and patiently walked us through the entire process. They were friendly, reassuring, and were available whenever we needed them. I hope to not buy another house for a long time, but if I do, I would not hesitate to use Manausa again!Anne Tierney
Working with Marcus and Kevin was easy. We never purchased a home (work relocated me before we had the chance), but were super impressed with the attentiveness and superior service.Zayne Smith
Thanks to the amazing team at Joe Manausa Real Estate, I just closed on my very first house! I had no idea what to expect when I decided to start looking for a home, but Lindsey and Kevin sat down with me and explained every step of the process from start to finish. Lindsey and Cate showed me countless houses, until we finally found the perfect one for me. They were always quick to answer any question I had, were incredibly patient with me, and really held my hand through the whole process. Cay did a great job of making sure the process of closing went smoothly. She stayed in constant contact with me making sure everything was in order and ready to go. This wonderful group of people not only helped me find and purchase my first home, but they made the whole thing easy and fun. I couldn't be happier!Brittany Reese

We had such a great experience with Lindsey and Kevin at Manausa helping us find our beautiful house. Lindsey was willing to show us houses at a moment's notice and was great at communicating with us, always responding promptly to my emails and texts. She was calm and patient and gave us lots of reassurance during the stressful process of buying a house. Kay from the office was also super helpful, sending email reminders of what we needed to do and when, so we wouldn't forget anything. Thanks for everything!Anne Tierney Tripodi
My experience was with Marcus Edenfield as a buying agent for Manausa Real Estate. Marcus was professional, personable, quick to respond to our concerns, and had an uncanny knack for anticipating our needs. My wife and I strongly recommend the Manausa buying team and, in particular, Marcus Edenfielduser5047986
Eva B. Armstrong is a knowledgeable, hardworking, efficient and approachable realtor. Her sophisticated communication skills plus vast relationship with all kinds of professions make house closing smooth and successful. I thank Eva B. Armstrong for the fabulous service and Joe Manausa Real Estate for all kinds of supports. You are the best.Xiudong Wang
I am one of those people that believe that if a Client or customer receives poor or Inadequate service, the manager should be informed to allow them to better train the employee, revise service policy or somehow correct the situation. Conversely, if someone receives good service, the manager should also be told to allow them to reward the employee.Don Keirn
It is my happy task to inform you of a very knowledgeable and professional employee. I was referred to Joe Manausa Real Estate and Lindsey Begue by a friend in this area. I was looking for a home for me to purchase and retire. I called Ms Begue and we talked for about 30 minutes while she asked for details on what type of property I was searching to buy, as well as where. I felt that she understood what I was looking for.
Within several hours, she sent me a listing for a property. As we started to discuss my options, it was apparent that this listing was exactly what I had described. As I asked questions, she knew the region and area. As we began the purchase offer process, it was clear that she she knew the process and procedures necessary to accomplish the deal. I am not that familiar with purchasing Real Estate but I do recognize competence. I felt that she completely understood both the deal process, as well as my needs as a purchaser. Throughout the process she helped my understand the process and very patiently helped me to understand the system and what we needed to do next. When I had a question, she knew the answer or did the research to find the answers. She was very patient and I had confidence in her abilities throughout the process.
Once we came to the closing, her real professionalism emerged. We were working with an exceptional closing agent, Tiffany.
Lindsey was confronted with a variety of issues and difficulties that seemed to me to be insurmountable and kill the deal. However, Lindsey (and Tiffany) continued to address each issue to resolution. I was most comfortable with her positive attitude and refusal to accept failure. Her knowledge of the system finally won out and we finally reached closing. I am confident that we were able to close because of Lindsey's (and Tiffany)'s expertise and professionalism. I will gladly continue to give her name and number to people looking to buy property in the area.
I am very happy I found Ms. Begue to work with and the entire team at Joe Manausa Real Estate including Kevin Milligan and Cay Newel. I feel certain that we would not have purchased this home without them.
Don and Debra Keirn
My husband and I had the best first experience buying a home with Joe Manausa. We worked with Marcus who helped us through every step in the process personally. We would recommend him to anyone and everyone!!Kimberly Pafford
My wife and I were, at first, skeptical about the Manausa approach to representing us as a buying agent. The agent assigned to us, Marcus Edenfield, allayed all of our fears. Between his dogged determination to find us a home, his excellent communication skills, his utilization Manausa resources, and his outgoing personality we were very pleased. Any concerns we had were quickly and professionally addressed. His team coordinated inspections and made life simpler. We would recommend Manausa and, in particular, Marcus Edenfield if you want a top-notch buying experience.Ralph Sawning
I want to thank Andy Elliot for an excellent job on selling our home. He was with us every step of the way and explained everything we asked about. His professionalism is outstanding. I would highly recommend manausa real estate for your selling or buying of a home. Thanks again Andy!Kerri Andrade
Andy Elliot was great to work with he always kept us updated every step of the way. I would both recommend and use Joe Manausa real estate again.Chris Andrade
When my wife and I decided to relocate from California to Tallahassee, we asked local friends to suggest a good realtor. Those suggestions and a thorough Internet search for reviews led us to Joe Manausa Real Estate. A year before we moved we flew out to Tallahassee and met Joe and his wife Michelle. Even though they knew we were a year away from the move, they spent quite a while with us to get to know us and determine what type of housing we were looking for and they gave us a great overview of the types of neighborhoods in Tally that would fit in with our expectations. When we finally moved, we worked extensively with Michelle Manausa as our Buyer’s Agent. We were very impressed with Michelle’s professionalism, knowledge of the area, and assistance with the ever-changing housing market. After a search that lasted a few months and with Michelle’s spot-on advice, we found the right house for us and purchased it in August. Joe, Michelle, and their team totally met our expectations and the purchase occurred without a hitch. We unequivocally recommend Joe Manausa Real Estate.Jim Phillips
Stacie Boone is the best relator we have ever used! Tell her what your looking for, budget and normal basic information and she will deliver. Stacie will not try to sell you something over your budget or outside your initial parameters.Gregg Eason
If you looking for an honest, personable, REAL person, then give her a call.
My wife and I were first time home buyers and Michelle Manausa was extremely helpful. We didn't know much about the process or even where to begin and she made it very easy for us. She was very knowledgeable and responsive when we had questions or concerns. She also helped sell our home a few weeks ago and that was a breeze! We were very satisfied.Travis Rogers
I really enjoyed working with Garrett. He alerted me to all "for sale" homes he thought would interest me and was available to show them at my convenience. He was very prompt and accurate in preparing my offers. Once the offer was accepted, he and the office staff arranged all of the necessary inspections. Garrett and the office staff made the home-buying process a smooth and enjoyable experience.poodlesrgreat
Michelle Manausa at Joe Manausa Real Estate did a fantastic job of finding us out new home. We lived in Michigan and were moving to Tallahassee and Michelle would get everything scheduled when a new house came on the market that fit our specifications. If you need a dedicated and committed person, she is the one to help you find your new home.Steve W
Stacie Boone was the BEST! She was always available to answer questions, show me a home and listened to what I preferred. You will never go wrong with Stacie. She knows her business. I love my new home. NancyNancy Trautman
Awesome experience with Michelle and the whole Real Estate office, they helped us through entire the process of purchasing our first home and were always accommodating to our every need. Even months after the purchase Michelle continued to assist us with our property. Great experience all around would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a great agent and firm.Mark Xenophon
We were moving from south Florida.Kevin made it easy for us to make trips up to find our new home. Cay in the office is wonderful. We closed on our house and our agent showed up with help when we moved in. Wonderful family like service .no tricks just real people !! Thanks Manausa we love our home�❤️ if you had 10 stars we would give it����������MJ. Toler
Eva Armstrong is like no other agent, she is amazing at what she does, thoughtful, knowledgeable and funny too. Thanks Eva for putting up with us �� found the perfect house and will b moving in soon �Jan Jessup
We used Eva Armstrong as our agent. What a fantastic job she did! She guided us where we needed it, was patient where we needed it, and did a lot of the leg work we needed to bring a difficult purchase in for a landing. I would highly recommend working with her and ManausaKim Ross
I have had the absolute best experience with Manausa! We had the pleasure of working with Michelle, she walked us through the entire process, and in finding our home. She has been so kind and patient with us and all of our questions were answered very thoroughly. Everyone that works for Manausa has been so helpful to us! We are first time home buyers and had tons of questions, but no one ever got irritated with us and they were always so kind! We are over the moon to close on our new home tomorrow and are so grateful for everything this company has done for us! Thank you to each and everyone one of you! I would refer Manausa to anyone and have been already!Kayla Ward
Kevin was beyond patient with us this weekend. We flew in from TX specifically to find our new home in Tallahassee. From Friday to Sunday he initiated and entertained every home that would be a great fit for our family. Kevin gave us the time we needed to marinate and did not push. We had the pleasure of also meeting two other team members and each one was very professional and polite. Would highly recommend Kevin and Manausa to anyone looking for your perfect home!Michelle and David Herrington
Garrett and Kevin were extremely helpful in our home buying experience. Being first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions about the process and Garrett was able to answer those questions along the way with a quick response time. The house we currently lived in was being sold and we had a very short amount of time to find a house that we wanted to make an offer on. Within just a couple of weeks, Garrett found us a house that had every single one of our "check list" items. I would highly recommend the team at Joe Manausa to anybody in the Tallahassee area looking to purchase a home!Kaitlyn Mixon
We could not have had a better home buying experience with Kevin at Manausa real estate. He jumped right in and made the last six weeks of home buying a relatively stress free time in our life. We will definitely work with him again in the future!Cait Ubilla
Lindsey Begue at Joe Manausa Real Estate has been a life saver!!! My husband and I have been house hunting for quote some time now with no luck, we were very hesitant about getting a realtor because I felt like other realtors we were around were almost like car salesman....very pushy. It was like night and day meeting with Lindsey Begue and Kevin Milligan. The really sit you down and explain the ends and outs of what's going on with our market right now, knowing what's going on makes it a lot easier to go through the process. They didn't make me and my husband feel bad for not liking a house or not wanting to make that leap so quickly. Lindsey was always around to show us any and every house we liked or some she saw that she knew we would like. We are now under contract for our very first home and I couldn't be more excited!!! Choosing Joe Manausa Real Estate was the first step in the right direction for us in purchasing our first home and I couldn't be more grateful for their help!!aeaust24
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Joe Manausa Real Estate on the recent purchase of our new home. From our first meeting with Kevin and Lindsey, we were impressed with the team's dedication, preparation, and responsiveness. Despite all of the hard work they clearly put in to each client, we never felt any pressure, which was important to us. Lindsey Begue was our agent and was a dream to work with--I kind of wish we hadn't found our dream home in only 4 days so that we could have worked with her longer! Marcus and Cay were also really helpful throughout the process. We can't say enough good things about the whole team and will definitely work with them in the future when we're ready to buy again and would recommend them without hesitation to anyone looking to buy a home.Melissa Montle
Kevin Milligan assisted me on my recent home purchase. He, and every member of the Manausa team, provided exceptional service. Kevin walked me through the full process up front, and was an invaluable resource during my home search. He was available every time I needed him and served as a counselor/advisor on countless phone calls. When I chose my home, Kay's regular emails with critical instruction, helpful information, and reminders was invaluable. Thank you Manausa, and thank you Kevin for such an amazing experience!
Kevin Milligan and Lindsey Begue of Joe Manausa Real Estate are a superb team to work with. Five minutes into our initial meeting I knew that I was going to stick with them and did not even consider anyone else. Lindsey was my point of contact through the entire house hunting process, she was responsive to all my queries and questions never letting me wait for more than 15-30 minutes before responding. I am an out of town buyer and she was most accommodating over the memorial day weekend as we ran around Tallahassee and saw 10 houses in 2 days. I am happy to say that we found one which I liked, made an offer, went through a counter offer process which was accepted and it was all accomplished over the long weekend thanks to her responsiveness and expert advice on the Tallahassee real estate market. Save yourself a lot of grief and go with Lindsey and the Joe Manausa team!Haresh Nagarajan
I recently had the pleasure of receiving a referral from Joe for a client moving to the area that I am an agent in TN. He reached out to me and chose me from many agents. He provided me the contact information in a very timely manner. It was a pleasure working with him. Kathryn Woycik, Southern Homes Realty LLC
I just closed on my first home yesterday, and Jason Madsen from Joe Manausa Real Estate was my realtor. Buying a home is a huge decision, but Jason was absolutely amazing! He listened to what I wanted in my home and helped me every step of the way. I feel so lucky to have been randomly assigned to Jason when I called in a panic one day after a negative experience with another realtor in town. I have since recommended Jason to several friends and coworkers looking to buy a home. My closing went smoothly with Jason and Manausa Law Firm and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home!
Ron Rice and Andy Elliot helped us sell our house and they did a great job! Very helpful, available at all hours to answer questions (and I had many), and paid attention to every detail.
I found Manausa Real Estate online when I started my search for a home in Tallahassee. I live over 300 miles south and used the Internet extensively. One evening I found a house and requested more information. The next morning Garrett Jacks called me back and that call started an experience that was almost painless. When I finally met Garrett, his enthusiasm and knowledge put me at ease. The entire buying process went flawlessly thanks to Garrest and the team effort at Joe Manausa Real Estate. It had been 25 years since my last home purchase so Garrett patiently answered all of my questions, big or small. I put my trust in his ability and he did not let me down. I would gladly recommend the company and Garrett specifically to anyone looking to purchase a home in Tallahassee.Grandalmm
Just sold a very hard to sell townhome, Travis stayed with it the whole way and kept me informed every step of the way. Highly recommended!Mike Manausa
Thanks to Garrett Jacks and his team at Joe Manausa Real Estate for helping me find my perfect home ! The support and expertise he gave me throughout the home buying process was essential in making a major life decision . I am indebted to him for making it the best decision I have made yet!Linda martin
My husband and I had a great experience with Manausa. We are first time home buyers and had the pleasure of working with Kevin. He was very informative and patient with us. Him and the Manausa team helped make this process so easy and we will definitely refer friends and family! Thank you again Kevin for helping Eddie and I find our perfect starter home!
Super informative and caring agents who will work with you to find you exactly what you're looking for. I would never work with anyone else!!Sarah Milligan
Joe Manausa Real Estate, and our agents Ron Rice and Lindsey Begue, helped us go under contract on our house after 2 days on the market for $10,000 over price list. They really know what they are doing, and they are able to use their knowledge of business and economics to form a strategy to get a house sold. I couldn't believe it, but the results spoke for themselves. I was really glad to have chosen them to help sell our house. Thanks!Nick Davies
I had people looking at my house during the few days it was "pre-listed." Within five hours after it was officially listed, I had two offers. All has gone extremely well. I could not be more pleased.Roy Barineau
Joe Manausa Real Estate truly has the best home search website in town! If you ever have the opportunity to work with their agent, Lindsey Begue, you’ll see first-hand how she genuinely listens to and cares about her clients. Lindsey has made several of my family member’s real estate dreams come true. I would highly recommend Lindsey and the Joe Manausa team.Ann Cole
Great experience working with them, great team that works together to ensure that everything during the process of purchasing a home runs smoothly. From day one, they sat down with my husband and I to explain the process of purchasing our first home and what we ought to be looking for. I can say that next time I am ready to move and purchase a bigger home, I will definitely go with Joe Manausa Real Estate. All the employees are very helpful and always have a smile on their face ready to answer any questions. They are available 24/7 for any concerns that you may have.Tanya Gutierrez-Tapia
I really like the team approach -they've got experts in all aspects of home selling, and I'm now buying!Mark Yelland
We were lucky enough to find Joe and his team. They found the perfect house for us, negotiated a fair price, and were with us all the way through closing. We highly recommend Joe for all your real estate needs. In particular, Kevin and Cay really took the time to guide us through the home buying process. We couldn't have done it without either of them.Monte Stevens
Kevin, Garrett, John, and Cay were a fantastic group of people to work with. They made the process of buying our home an enjoyable experience. Thank You ALL!!!!Christine Scovotto
Great team! First working with Kevin to find a new home. Ron handled the listing of my old home and Lindsey got two offers - above asking price - over Thanksgiving weekend. Impressive!David Gaul
We worked with Kevin but, the whole company was great. If we needed anything they all were so willing to provide help. This company knows exactly what they are doing and work really hard to find you your home! We moved from Tampa to Tallahassee not knowing anything about Tallahassee. It was also our first time buying a home. I called Kevin Wednesday night told and he made sure he met us that same night. He showed us a PowerPoint which was very informative, it made us understand the home buying process a lot more. Kevin guided us in the right direction with not just showing us homes but telling us how what we need to do in order to make sure we can get through this process as smoothly and quickly as possible. He showed us every area we wanted to see and we saw probably over 30 houses in less than a weeks time. Kevin is very personable and very informative. We were extremely nervous and a bit stressed at the thought of moving 5 hours away to a new area, getting married, going to Europe for our honeymoon and buying a house all within a month. We looked end of October and are now closing on our new home first week of December. We didn't think that it was even possible to buy a house so fast and be thousands of miles away during most of the process. But, we had Kevin and his teams help to guide us in the right direction and get everything we needed to make this process so smooth. There were things we wanted fixed with the house and Kevin really hustled to make sure we didn't have to worry. I highly recommend Joe Manausa Real Estate. Wonderful team, at no point was anything confusing for us because we had them any time we had a question. Their team is extremely well organized and managed.Kaitlin Anderson
We could not have asked for, nor expected, more from a real estate agent. Garrett Jacks of Joe Manausa Real Estate is professional, knowledgeable, thorough and dependable. Aside from his outstanding capability as a realtor, he is a man who has set obvious high standards for himself. We will be recommending him, along with Joe Manausa Real Estate, without hesitation to anyone needing assistance in this area.
Eva patiently guided me through a long, frustrating short sale. She made sure my home had buyers, kept me informed and made herself available when someone needed to be at the property. I would recommend her to anyone. The company linked me to an attorney and used modern doc signing tools so that transactions were painless.Alexis Idelette
I had the best experience with Joe Manausa Real Estate. Kevin was so easy to work with and his customer service was superb. He helped me find the perfect home, which wasn't an easy feat! After I was under contract, Cay provided excellent customer service by answering many questions, ordering inspections or surveys, and making sure I was ready for closing. We even closed early! I would not hesitate to recommend Kevin Milligan and Joe Manausa Real Estate for anyone looking to buy a home.Kylene Johnson
I have known Alex Nunez personally for many years and would highly recommend him for all your real estate needs. Although I have not had the opportunity to work with him yet, he would be my first call if I ever wanted to sell my home or was in the market for a new home. You won't be disappointed.Becky Panebianco
Absolutely a great experience working with Alex Nunez. I had worked with several other realtors previously before being introduced to Alex. Unlike the other realtors, I felt like Alex was working for me, not just looking for a quick sale. Alex was the only realtor who really listened and cared about what I was looking for in my price range. Overall it was a really smooth process.Donivan G
This is the 3rd time I am going through this process of buying a home and this is the WAY IT SHOULD ALWAYS BE DONE. Alex is very knowledgeable about all processes that go along with this important tedious process. Alex is also very professional and easy to get along with. He took his time to make sure we were all on the same page. I am grateful to have had this awesome experience and plan to use Alex again for all my future home buying/selling needs.Greg Picinic
I was a first time home-buyer and I worked with Stacie Boone throughout the entire process. She was so wonderful to work with - always quick to respond and give great advise. She was awesome! I've since recommended her to another friend and she also helped them buy their first house! I highly recommend Stacie Boone at Joe Manausa Real Estate!Sarah Revell
Great experience. I always felt that my interests were the primary driver and never felt I was imposing. Since I was relocating, I needed a concentrated effort, and Kevin Milligan could not have been more attentive, devoting several days taking me to many, many listings. More than the time devoted to looking at homes, I valued Kevin's pre screenings, which kept us focused on workable solutions and avoided homes that did not meet our criteria. Definitely recommend.Chris Cass
I am a first-time home buyer who is about to close on a house that I found and bought with the assistance of Joe Manausa's realty firm. I chose them firm because I wanted an inexpensive house, and I didn't want to be pressured to buy above my goal. My agent, Garrett Jacks, was very helpful and accessible. He began by giving us a lot of information about home buying and the market in Tallahassee. He did find additional listings that he thought would work for us. I did not feel any pressure to select any particular house, although we talked about the pros and cons of various houses and how the financing could work to our benefit. He was able to help us make an offer that reflected the market, and when we suggested an alternative to the contract, he was helpful in getting changes made. I feel as though I got a lot of help in finding and buying a house that was beneficial without being coercive. I'm pleased with the process and the result. And the firm's closing specialist is assisting with the closing, so I feel optimistic about that also.Karen Card
I would definitely tell you to give Eva Armstrong a call! She has went way beyond to help us and put us in contact with other people to help us as well. Will be telling all my friends about what a great Real Estate company Manausa is and how much they will do for you! Eva is a really nice and easy to talk too ,you will be happy with her service!!Cheryl Mcclain
Stacie Boone is the best realtor ever! She was very patient and understanding of our family's interests. She found our perfect home in no time! Thanks Stacie for an amazing experience with home buying!Nina Umar
I love working with Eva Armstrong. She is very knowledgeable and professional.Robert Barnette
Eva Armstrong is a fantastic realtor. She immediately responded to my urgent need for a new home and worked tirelessly to help me find the best location. I was impressed not only by her quick action, but by her professionalism and understanding of my family's needs. She made me feel like her first priority and the entire process of buying my home was completely painless. Thank you, Eva!!Kimberly Hawkes
I had the great pleasure to work with Eva Armstrong. She is a true professional, quick to respond to my questions or requests. I hope to work with Eva in the future on another investment property.Kim Baughman
We have such a great realtor in Lindsey Begue! She was very attentive to what we were looking for and found us the perfect home for our family! She was so very helpful, answered all of our questions, and advocated for our best outcome in the purchase. We are incredibly grateful to have had such an awesome home buying experience!Jenn Alcorn
One word, "Outstanding". Alex Nunez is the best agent I have had the pleasure of working with. Professional, courteous, and genuine.Reginald Cardozo
Our experience with Alex was tremendous. He stuck by our sides even when certain things had nothing to do with him. When me and my husband got discourage he motivated us to stay positive. He made one of our biggest dream come true. Alex is someone that not just pushes you to buy anything, but actually put his self in our shoes. He also not only sold us a home , but acted like he were the buyer. He made us feel like family rather then a client. Thanks to Alex he truly made this company a (5) star business. We in society need more people like him. Don't matter what time it was he would always respond back to us even if he was with his own family. I don't think we could of done this with out Alex. And definetly when we are ready to purchase our second home he will be the first one we call. Alex you are a BLESSING .Shawn Murrell
My wife and I just relocated to the Tallahassee area and were completely clueless when it came to who to talk to and where to look. We stumbled upon Manausa Real Estate by a search like many do and we were immediately connect with Garrett Jacks as our buying agent. Garrett, along with his whole team, were extremely helpful and knowledgeable on the real estate market in the area. The team was consistently available to reach out to and to ask questions with. I highly recommend the Joe Manausa realty team, especially my realtor, Garrett Jacks. I will be using this team again when it comes time to sell.Daniel Faulkner

THANK YOU SOOO much Nikky for all your hard work & diligence. I'm sorry things didn't work out, but I believe ALL things happen for a reason. I'm planning to look at 2 rentals Friday, and I'm good with renting for now. When I'm in a position to purchase I would VERY MUCH like to work through you. Your positive energy and outlook is refreshing. You have been SO much help to me as I make this transition in my life. I wish you the VERY BEST in all that you do, good health, and much happiness.

RobertRobert Smith
I just closed on my first home yesterday. Jason Madsen went above and beyond to help me through the process!Lizzie Jones
We had the best experience with Joe Manausa Real Estate. Kevin and Lindsey were outstanding and helped us find the perfect home. After we were under contract, Cay provided excellent service by answering many questions and by making sure we were ready for closing. Communication was superb and we closed on time. I would not hesitate to use Joe Manausa Real Estate for my next home purchase.David Marsey
it provide excellent services!Manjit Singh
I really like your page!Valerie McConville
I was contacted by a Realtor from Manausa when I signed up to use the web-sight. A friend had recommended the sight to me because it was very accurate, and up to date. I was contacted immediately by a Realtor named Andrea Chapman. Andrea, was very well versed in the process of home buying. Overall I'd say the process went smoothly. It was my first time buying a house (as I was often reminded), but I'd definitely recommend this company to others. If you have a VA loan they know what they are doing, and they were very veteran friendly. Closing went smoothly though it had been delayed a couple of times I feel like they were on top of everything. It also helped because Joe Manausa's brother is the real estate attorney and the closing happens at his law firm. Everything at the firm went smoothly and was explained very clearly. For my first experience buying a home I'd give them an A-. They spelled out things very clearly and helped us feel at ease.Anonymous
Moving from Texas, we first contacted Joe because of his blogs about various matters in the local and Florida real estate market....value vs cost of a swimming pool, for example. They helped us set up electronic alerts when houses meeting our criteria came on the market. When we got to Tallahassee we had narrowed our choices down to 5 homes; saw them all in one day; and had an accepted offer by sunset.Dale Cassidy
Michelle and the entire staff have gone much more than the extra mile, several times, to help us work through the details of an out of state move.
Can't say enough excellent things about their commitment to serving us.
We recently purchased a home using Joe Manausa Real Estate. Our realtor was Jasmine McIntyre, she was the best we ever have worked with. Jasmine did an excellant job helping us getting everything completed in a timely manner. We were able to go from offer to clsing in three weeks.Gregory Davis
Mrs. McIntyre is very professional and customer service focused. We highly recommend Jasmine and Joe Manausa Real Estate if you are looking to purchase a home or if need to close on a home quickly.
Thank you Jasmine and Joe Manausa.
Greg and Dianne Davis
My wife got in touch with Alex Nunez by calling about a house that he had listed and he found out we did not have a realtor in Tallahassee. We gave Alex a list of criteria that I'm sure was longer than most and he found us a bunch of houses that fit. We looked at about 16-18 houses and Alex was extremely helpful and patient with us. We even went back to a couple of houses multiple times to help us make up our minds. Once we finally decided on one, his analysis of the current market conditions was fantastic and he talked us through the options we had during the negotiation process. Throughout the entire home buying process, Alex was on top of everything and his communication with us was excellent. We never felt uneasy or kept in the dark about anything. He recommended people and companies to use for inspections and appraisals and he even helped us iron out some kinks with our lender. I can honestly say that he went above and beyond in every way, even to the point of making arrangements for our pets during our signing. Alex never made us feel like we were burdening him, although I'm sure we weren't some of his easier clients to please. He certainly made it his priority to make sure we got what we wanted and we were totally happy with the service he provided.Danielle Roth
They have the best web site and real estate information I have ever seen in the industry. They publish more information on the industry and the Tallahassee market than any other Broker I have known.Jay Novak
If you want to be educated on the Tallahassee and Florida Real Estate market, this is the site to look at.
Just went through a very patience trying process of purchasing a home, but my agent did a great job taking care of everything and made it as painless as possible for me. Highly recommended.A Google User
All the expertise and guidance that Andrea Chapman provided during the purchase of our new home, from the first viewing to closing, was exceptional! We greatly appreciate all of her efforts. THANKS ANDREA!A Google User
Andrea Chapman did a great job helping us buying an investment house. I would also like thank Joe Manausa whom we have never met. We really appreciate his analysis as the expert helping us determining the offering price. Thanks Andrea and Joe!A Google User
I suppose buying a home for the first time can be stressful, but we were lucky to have Irena Jaroszynska guide us through it and we ended up in the house we wanted. I first found the Manausa group through the MLS search on the website, and I was unsure of how to even begin the home buying process. After we met with Irena, I looked up her biography and figured who wouldn't want a Master of Physics to work with. We had a short deadline for finding a house, a limited area of interest, and a small budget, but she was able to find us the perfect house. Even through all of our second guessing and almost giving up, Irena worked with us to get through the negotiations and purchasing. Thanks Irena!A Google User
Our realtor, Jay Novak, did an exceptional job helping my wife and I purchase our home. While it took nearly 8 months before we finally bought our house, Jay remained incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the process. I've already recommended him to several of our friends, and I'm sure we'll be calling him again when we're ready to purchase our next home. Thanks so much, Jay!A Google User
Andrea Chapman was always available for plenty of showings and great advice. Thanks for the help Andrea!A Google User
Our realtor Eva Armstrong is WONDERFUL and FUN to work with!!!! She keeps you informed, listens to your concerns and makes you laugh! We HIGHLY recommend her!A Google User
Our experience with Century 21 was awesome. Our Realtor (Eva) was fantastic and communicated with us every step of the way which made our experience purchasing a home stress free.A Google User
We use Century 21 First Realty for all of our real estate transactions and have always been impressed with the degree of knowledge of thier real estate experts. Each transaction went very smoothly and I cannot reccomend then enough.A Google User
Loved working with Century 21 First Realty to buy my house.A Google User
To Whom it May Concern: After following various real estate companies in the Tallahassee area for two years, we decided to go with Joe Manausa Real Estate. Joe and Michelle Manausa are very knowledgeable and have a good handle of the real estate market in Tallahassee.Christopher & Beatriz Schmitt
Working with Joe Manausa and his team has been an absolute pleasure from day one. I can't imagine working with a more knowledgeable or effective team of realtors. They REALLY have this Internet stuff down to a science. Prepare to be blown away!Taylor West - Austin, TX
Sold our house in one month! Excellent internet marketing and friendly staff. Thank you! I recommend Joe Manausa Real Estate Manausa & Associates and Ron Rice to anyone selling in Tallahassee.Jeff Caplan
We thought we had a good understanding of what it took to sell a home, but once we saw what this company does, every single day, we knew their internet marketing plan was going to get our home sold.P&S - Tallahassee, FL
Sold home. Thank you for excellent newsletters.THC
Eva is sincere, efficient, and knowledgeable in her role as a realtor. She always went the extra mile to provide outstanding service with limited stress on both occasions when I purchased and sold a home. I strongly recommend Eva and the Joe Manausa Real Estate Team as one of the best in the real estate industry.Sonia Scott
We were a bit “shocked” when Joe told us the home would most likely sell in 4 to 14 days, considering our last agent failed to sell it in 6 months. But sure enough, we had an offer on the 11th day and were able to close on our Tallahassee home in less than 3 months from our first meeting with Joe.Ron
No one is more genuinely friendly and polite than Buddy at Joe Manausa Real Estate is. I’m not one of those people who looks at three houses and chooses one. I must have seen forty properties. During my search it was clear from the advice Buddy gave me about certain locations, structures, situations, etc. that he had my best interest at heart.Ann G.
I was one of the worst kind of clients. Hard to get in touch with, financing issues, picky, and only interested in a very specific area that most would say was out of my price range. Andrea from Joe Manausa Real Estate persevered for over two years and found the perfect house in the perfect area in my price range, and it even came with a pool. Even after spending two years to get to this point, Andrea put my interests above closing the sale and made sure I was protected. We love the house Andrea! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!David James
I feel so grateful to have come in contact with such a knowledgeable, professional and FAST moving Realtor.Leckinger
Andrea Chapman is the best, she does not miss a beat. She thinks of everything. She keeps in contact with her clients. While you are sleeping she is thinking of stuff you need to know and is on her computer emailing you. I love her to death. She is a gem. She is really a people person. I think everyone needs a Andrea Chapman.Bradley
John handled this important transaction with a professional demeanor. As an attorney in Elgin, IL I often times work with Joe Manausa Real Estate because it, like your office, does things right.Brad
Bill was outstanding throughout the entire process. The professionalism, service and advice he rendered was first class. We are extremely satisfied and would definitely rely on him again for our future real estate transactions.Brown
Thank You Shelley for all your help in buying a house. You are a professional, personable and caring. You helped us with everything including getting through loan difficulties with our banks. I will recommend you to anyone who is looking for a realtor who will your hand through the process, explain everything in a calm and sensitive manner and answer all our questions. Shelley you are the best!Cindy Mazzara
My husband and I were extremely pleased with Jason’s performance. We greatly appreciated his flexibility with scheduling and his eagerness to find us the home we were looking for. Jason went above and beyond to meet our needs and even reached out to people in North Carolina to ensure that our home there successfully closed on time. Again, we have nothing but good things to say about Jason. We will definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Katie & Christian Williams
Ron excelled in providing services to us; he was always timely with his appointments, and has answers to all relevant questions pertaining to this closing.Marilyn & Carl Rubin
I highly recommend Stacie Boone and her team at Joe Manausa Real Estate. She made a stressful process as smooth and easy- and even enjoyable- as possible. If you are buying a home in Tallahassee you should call Stacie Boone. She’s the best!Tim S.
We are very pleased with Joe Manausa Real Estate. One very important reason is that your real estate agent Eva Armstrong was very professional and courteous. Eva worked very patiently with my Mom and everyone (my brother and I). Eva also insured that all of the figures were correct at closing.Joey Brunson
Stacie Boone provided the most professional, EXPERT Customer Service that we have ever had. We have had the pleasure of buying homes in the past, but this was by far the most enjoyable. Stacie’s professionalism, attention to detail, and willingness to go the extra mile for my family was first rate.Jason Harrell
My boyfriend and I just purchased our first home through Joe Manausa Real Estate and our realtor was Eva Armstrong. Eva was there every step of the way, sending us update e-mails, reminding us of steps that needed to be taken, and answering any questions we might have, no matter how trivial. She’s patient, understanding, and she knows everything that needs to be done with buying or selling a home.Samantha K. Moore
Andrea Chapman, with Joe Manausa Real Estate, has been an absolute delight to work with. She was very active in our search and went out of her way to make it easy on us. Once we found the home, she was on top of making sure that we had all of our documents completed. She made sure that we knew dollar amounts and information up front so there were no surprises.Danielle Jessup
After four years of trying to sell my house, I decided to take it off the market. The day after my house was taken off the market I received a call from Ron Rice, Manausa Realty. Ron said he could get an offer on my house within 30 days. Within a week I had an offer and sold the house within 45 days. Ron and his assistant Tom Hutchinson carried through with their promises and most importantly provided outstanding service.Glendon Forgey
Titus was great and handled everything promptly and completely! Very appreciative and understanding of our situation. Thank you so much!Erin Bosh
Mr. Novak is a highly experienced Realtor who needed all his skills dealing with a difficult client (me) in helping us buy a home. Jay is very competent in using modern computer skills to enhance the process. In short- Jay Novak is a terrific dedicated professional with high integrity and years of experience.Dave Beeching
Joe Manausa Real Estate buyer agent- Jay Novak has made the buying experience very smooth. When the property appraisal came lower that the contract price; Jay negotiated with the seller and got the appropriate price. He answered all my questions and concerns with reasonable time.I will recommend Jay to my friends when they plan to buy a house. Thanks Jay for all your help!Bhupaish S.
Andrea is great- she follows through every issue, always on time, and saved me several hundreds of dollars going through every item on the HUD.Zhehong G
We needed to sell our house in Tallahassee so I went to Joe Manausa Real Estate. Ron Rice worked with me to explain their process to get a house sold, as well as an overview of the Tallahassee real estate market at that time. They were able to get an offer on our house in 4 days and we closed in less than a month. If you are selling your house, I recommend that you contact Joe Manausa Real Estate.David Jenness
A very professional approach to the whole home buying experience. Jay Novak was helpful and instrumental in us finding our dream retirement home. He was available to answer questions at all hours of the day and went the extra mile to make the experience pleasurable.Anthony Joseph
Eva Armstrong, at Joe Manausa Real Estate, was our real estate agent for the Tallahassee area. She spent time with us when other agents with other agency’s ignored us. I wanted you to know that she was professional and very knowledgeable at all times, funny, sweet and kind to us also. We now have a friend in Tallahassee that we appreciate very much. Best of luck to her in the future.Judy & Mark Shock
Andrea Chapman was just fabulous and kind. She was the best realtor among my experience. She had prepared everything I need in a really considerate manner and I have everything I need from her immediately on the spot. Definitely I want to suggest her to someone who wants to buy or sell a house.Sungsool
Shelley Duke has gone above and beyond what any other realtor we’ve worked with ever have.She has been invaluable in the post-contract, pre-closing process, making sure everything was taken care of as it should. She is friendly and takes great pride in her work. Thank you so very much for everything!Monique Bryan
Damian Costantino and Robin Jerkins were so amazing throughout this life-changing adventure. We came up from Miami looking for a house and they bent over backwards to help us. We found our dream house and they made sure we got it! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!J. Bonell
Titus always pursued what worked best for us. He was honest with his opinion and helped us to find what we wanted and what we needed. Titus was very patient with our long search (our fault!) for the perfect house. In the end, he found it and got us a great deal on our first home.Alyssa Marchand
So often one hears the phrase, "We're here for you." Jennifer Chapman is one of the few who makes that statement true. Her professionalism coupled with a determination to accomplish what is the best possible outcome for her client make her stand out from other realtors. Taking time to walk me through the process and keeping me informed every step of the way was invaluable to me as a first time home buyer.Carolyn Veal
Jennifer did a great job finding me the perfect home in the price range that I was comfortable with. She was easy to work with, and she also was very flexible as I have a hectic schedule with very little available free time. I would use her again and recommend her to a friend. Thanks again for everything Jennifer and I love my new house.Will Whittle
Jennifer has a great work ethic. She really went toe-to-toe for us in our dealings with Fannie Mae and really helped us out. She is honest and has integrity.
I will use her services again should I ever be in need of a real estate agent, and I recommend her wholeheartedly.Deron S.
Jennifer helped us find our dream home within a week, and move in a month later. She was extremely helpful with every part of the home-buying process, from targeting our search, to the negotiations, inspections and closing. She’s knowledgeable, detail-oriented and a problem-solver. Thank you, Jennifer, you made our home-buying experience the best it could be!Vann Gardner

My husband and I are so thankful that Robin Jerkins was our realtor. We’ve never had such a wonderful realtor before. She was not out to sell us any specific piece of property; she wanted to find the right one for us. She wanted to figure out what would make us both as happy as possible (which was not easy).Ginger LaChapelle
Robin Jerkins has been fantastic to work with. She is very thorough, patient and hard working. We would very much recommend anyone looking to buy a home in Tallahassee to work with Robin.Joanna & Quintin Hassell

Robin Jerkins was more than helpful in assisting my mother and me with purchasing our first home. Thank you for your help with us in moving in, in the 45 days as promised.Tonya Gaines
Jason Madsen is a very patient and helpful realtor. He was always available to answer questions night or day by text or phone, and if he did not know the answer he would go out of his way to find it. We would recommend Jason to anyone looking to buy a home.Tracy Cornwell
About the Tallahassee Real Estate Newsletter - I found it very helpful in the time preceding the listing of our home for sale and contemplating the construction of a new home. With our house scheduled to close soon, I think I will pay a little less attention. But this has been most helpful; a great service.M.S.
My wife and I were very pleased with our Realtor Damian Costantino at Joe Manausa Real Estate. He was prompt about providing lists of prospective homes and price ranges that would interest us. We would recommend Damian to any party wishing to buy or sell property.Dave & Lorrie L.

Phenomenal job!!! Damian Costantino at Joe Manausa Real Estate helped me throughout the entire process, always answering any questions that we had. Damian even helped me throughout the process of applying for my VA Loan. My wife and I were extremely happy with his hard work. We will definitely refer business to Damian in the future. JOB WELL DONE!!!Sgt. M. Cavusoglu
Joe Manausa Real Estate and Robyn McAlister did an exceptional job handling my transaction. I was overseas in Germany and Robyn McAlister's assistance was crucial. She went above and beyond, even picking up checks from the bank, and family members for closing. I highly recommend Robyn McAlister and Joe Manausa Real Estate, and look forward to doing business with them in the future.Todd Mikola
Choosing Damian at Joe Manausa Real Estate as our realtor, to help us buy our home was one of the best decisions my husband and I made together. When we made an offer on what is now our current home, he sat down with us and explained every single document we signed so it was clear to us. We always felt he gave us honest advice and that we could trust him, and we recommend him for your house buying needs. Damian: Thank you so much for all your hard work!Carolina Ramirez

Damian, thank you for all of the time, effort, & consideration that you put into the home buying process with us. Your help & guidance certainly made this an enjoyable experience as we purchased a home we know we will love! You are a great realtor! Thanks again!Becky & Burgon
We worked with a couple other realtors with disappointing results, then we found Ben Soto at Joe Manausa Real Estate. He listened to us and understood what we were looking for. It turned out there were several hurdles to overcome before closing on our property, and he exceeded our expectations with all the work and effort he put forth in helping us with every step. We will definitely and strongly recommend him to anyone we know, and will not hesitate to call him if we shall need a realtor in the future.Brenda Geddis
Menza & Carol did an excellent job processing our short sale and finding a buyer quickly.Kelly
I am a first time home buyer and I had a lot of questions. Alex answered all of them thoroughly, some of them more than once. He was professional, always supportive, and informative. He went out of his way to help me meet deadlines and fought the good fight regarding needed repairs when I met resistance from the sellers. He was always patient and calm. He is knowledgable about Real Estate and Tallahassee. I can't say enough good things about Alex Nunez as my realtor. I am recommending him to everyone I know and anyone I meet who is in need of a Realtor/Broker.Dian L.
Just closed on my first home, and Kevin and Cay from Manausa Real Estate Group made it a great experience. Kevin, Cay, and the rest of the team made my home buying experience smooth and easy. From start to finish, I knew that they always had my family's interest in mind. We love our new house.Brian Trent
Right from the start at Joe Manausa Real Estate, we knew finding my mother her new home in Tallahassee was going to be great! Soon as we acquired our realtor Kevin Milligan, we felt so confident we were going to learn enough about the area and pick the right location and best neighborhood for my mother. Soon as we met Kevin in the office, we sat in the conference room right in front of a large screen computer and utilizing our budget and our specific area of interest he discussed and gave us enough info about each property and helped us weed out all the houses we didn't even need to waste our time to see. I've never seen this process before in purchasing property and we have purchased a lot. We were so impressed at how much he listened and cared about our time and wanted to get us right in the right property! Can't say enough about Kevin, but the best realtor we have ever dealt with!Jennifer G.
Alex Nunez was a pleasure to work with. He was adamant about ensuring we understood every step in the process, and were properly prepared at each juncture. He was proactive in his search that led us to the own we bought, and he was patient and knowledgeable with out questions and concerns all along the way.Duncan G.
Eva was wonderful to work with during our home purchase. She is dedicates and has passion for what she does. She knows the market and helped us get a great deal on our home. She understood our needs and made our home buying experience easy.Melissa S.
I worked with Alex Nunez at Joe Manausa Real Estate. I would highly recommend Alex. He is very professional in every way. His recommendations were well thought out and I feel his expertise in the real estate market helped guide me as I made the decision to sell my house. I have no regrets.Anonymous
Incredible agency!!! I used Kevin Milligan to help my family relocate to Tallahassee and could not possibly be happier with the extremely high level of service, ability to negotiate, and attention to detail. Unfortunately, we found a house that had a lazy listing agent and I needed to move quickly. Kevin and his team took on the challenge and we closed in less than 3 weeks, including having the seller install a new roof!!! These guys are an A+ organization that just simply get the job done and it's done right! I would HIGHLY recommend using them.Evan G.
Joe Manausa Real Estate was awesome in finding my new home and they made the closing flawless. My realtor, Kevin Milligan did a fantastic job in finding a home that I was looking for. He was available whenever I had questions or when I found a property that I wanted to look at. Once Kevin knew the requirements I wanted in a house; he was very aggressive in looking and locating properties for me to look at. I am very happy with the house that I purchased and the support that Kevin and Joe Manausa gave me.Cleone C.
I worked with Alex Nunez out of Manausa Realty and I cannot recommend him more highly. I'm a 25 year old first time home buyer who knew nothing beyond what my parents knew.Megan P.
The first time I met with Alex we sat down and he walked me through every step of what would be the process (including a helpful powerpoint) so I had an understanding of exactly what would be involved. SO HELPFUL!
Once we started looking, he took into account everything I was looking for while giving recommendations on where to proceed. The house I ended up buying was one he let me know of via e-mail at 10:30pm on a Friday night because it had just come on the market and he wanted me to see it. 10:30pm on a Friday night is dedication.
Once the process started moving forward he let me know step by step what was happening and answered every question I had while guiding me through the fun processes of negotiating with the seller, inspections, repairs, and every other little thing that needed to happen. He was always honest with me, never telling me just what I wanted to hear so he could make the sell (and he did it all while working around my work schedule). I never had to take off work except the day of the signing (I work 9-6 on weekdays).
Alex, and Manausa Realty also had a plethora of resources for everything I needed including setting me up with an awesome lender (and great loan) and inspection services (I even got discounts because they work with Manausa so much).
So if you are looking for an honest, resourceful, and all around great realtor, Alex Nunez is your guy! :)
Jay was very patient with us during the 7 months it took us to complete our relocation here from Georgia. He also found a myriad of houses for us to view even as our " must haves" changed. I also enjoyed Joe's newsletter which was truly informative.Anonymous
Kevin was amazing . . . even working through my difficult changes in the contract and financing . . . and he got it done in short order with no missteps. My disaster should have cost two weeks or more (Or losing my opportunity to purchase this home) but he and the mortgage company kept the delay to only two days. He was amazing and was attentive not only to me, the buyer, but also considerate of the sellers needs. Everyone was pleased. Kevin is the kind of guy you want to have as a friend . . . :)Mike B.
Jasmine McIntyre was fantastic - beyond extra mile - and the firm offered support for questions I had relative to overall issues. First class organization. As a side note my son, Winston III - who will be living in the condo while at FSU, was a friend of Joe's daughter at Leon before moving to Monticello.Winston L.
Kevin and the rest of the team at Manausa was wondeful during the whole process -from being very informative on the process up front, to being very patient and perceptive to our desires, to negotiating us a great deal on our home.Jessie S.
We had quite a few road bumps during the process due to our lender/insurance/inspection process that the team managed to pull us through, even after we had long thought we had lost the deal. If it wasn't for Kevin, we'd have long ago given up and would not have our new home!
Thanks so much guys!
Joe Manausa Real Estate is a great company to use from start to finish. All their employees are actively involved when needed to help with certain areas.Jonathan H.
Our agent, Kevin Milligan, was a friggin' rockstar. He was always there when we needed to contact him and he was always actively looking for us. He knew right after our first meeting what we were looking for and was on point from day one. At some point we looked at 3-4 houses a day and Kevin took our no's to houses and moved on to the next one. Funny story, the house we bought was the very first house we looked at (which we were unsure because we loved it but it was the first house we saw). 2 months later it came back on the market after falling through in a deal. Kevin showed us the house again, he had a feeling it was meant to be and guess what? We bought it! Even after we bought it he helped with small things around the house and waited around to help me light the pilot light! From beginning to end, he was there. If you are looking for a hard worker and somebody who will find that forever home, he is your guy.
We thought it would be a difficult, time consuming process to sell my mother’s damaged home, but Ron Rice made it easy and much quicker than we anticipated, We are so grateful for all of the help.Elizabeth W.
Alex Nunez is the consummate professional. He is courteous and knowledgeable regarding properties and the process needed to offer a contract to seller and to close the sale. He responds quickly to questions. Alex made our recent home purchase in Tallahassee pleasant and easy from start to finish.Elizabeth P.
I want to acknowledge the exceptional service that Jasmine gave during the process of purchasing my townhome. She was able to find and negotiate a home that was in was my price range.Randy S.
Her skills and knowledge in finding the right financial institution, housing inspector and my home owner insurance was invaluable to saving me money overall.
I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to purchase a home to use her services as professional real estate agent.
We could not be happier with the service provided by Manausa Real Estate. From the first minute we stepped in the door to meet with Michelle Manausa, we felt taken care of and valued. We instantly felt confident she was going to help us find our dream home.Anonymous
Buying a home can be daunting, but having Michelle with us every step of the way was a great comfort. We knew we were getting an expert in the field who not only understood the market and the process, but who was also able to quickly identify the key priorities we were looking for in a home. She took the time to get to know us and always responded promptly and enthusiastically (even when we would send endless emails!).
We are so grateful for all of Manausa's help and could not be happier with the process and the end result. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants personalized service from professionals who care not just that you find a house, but that you find the perfect house for your family.
Thank you again for the well wishes in regard to our home purchase. The process of filing paperwork and completion of the closing was very professional. In regard to our realtor Ms Jasmine McIntyre we cannot say enough about her professionalism, kindness, sincerity and just an all, around good person. When we spoke to Ms Jasmine she provided us with the right homes to view and when we found our home she stayed with us and provided us with various vendors needed to complete our home requests. Ms Jasmine is a wonderful person and in our opinion went beyond the realms of "just" a realtor. Ms Jasmine is a true angel on earth.Anonymous
Our realtor was amazing. Found us a house in a week, were moved in within a month. Very attentive and responsive. Very informative on the process, which eased the stress of the process.Anonymous
Joe and Michelle Manausa were great to deal with on both the sale of our home and purchase of our new home. They were able to sell our house in less than 3 weeks! Best of the best!Robert J.
Joe sold our home in 3 weeks! Before placing it on the market, he sat down with us and discussed our pricing options based on when we wanted our home to sell. We were impressed with the professional quality photos he took, and especially his use of a drone to get aeriel shots of our home.Nikky M.
Because our home sold quickly, we were able to purchase our dream home. We felt comfortable with the negotiation process and every detail was taken care of. A few questionable items popped up on the inspection and Joe made sure to investigate our concerns. Our home buying process was about as non-stressful as it could have been. We LOVE our new home!
I highly recommend working with Joe if you need to buy OR sell a home! His market knowledge allowed us to feel confident about our decisions to buy and sell.
Michelle was very professional yet personal. She quickly picked up on what my husband and I wanted out of our home and was able to find houses that matched these needs. We looked at many houses prior to making an offer and she was very patient and understanding during the process. Once we made an offer she negotiated and understood the market well ensuring we got a fair price for our home. From the first time we talked to Michelle until we signed the final papers she was always quick to respond and we always felt like we had great communication with her and her office. We would highly recommend Michelle and all of Joe Manausa Real Estate and would happily use them again!Ashley G.
My wife and I selected Michelle as our buyer's agent for our first home purchase in Florida. Michelle was helpful and very patient throughout the entire buying process, which lasted over 7 months. She is very responsive and always willing to show properties (even in the rain). If we buy another property, we will use Michelle and Joe Manausa Real Estate again.Donna D.
Our agent, Kevin Milligan of Manausa Realty was the consummate professional throughout the home buying process. Months prior to our arrival in Tallahassee, he corresponded with us and kept us abreast of what we could expect on the local market and of the things we needed to do upon arrival. His knowledge of the area combined with his competency with the process made our experience painless. We were able to find our dream home and make an acceptable bid within a couple of days. From that point on, he expedited the process and answered our questions through the closing date. We would recommend the Mauausa Team without reservation.COL and Virginia Duggleby
Summary of their experienceJohn C.
When I was first looking for a home, I was probably like you. I’d received so many business cards, print ads and recommendations from friends that I felt like I was drowning in a sea of real estate agents. Who do I pick? What if I choose wrong? I only get one shot….Then I met Lindsey and all of my uneasiness was put to rest at that precise moment. Immediately, I was immensely impressed by her tenacity. She made it a total priority that I got the home of my dreams. Her vision and goals were in complete lock-step alignment with my own. She guided me through the whole process and made what would other-wise be a logistical nightmare into a surprisingly pleasant experience. She put me in the house of my choosing for well-under asking price due to her bulldog-like negotiation skills. Many thanks to her and the Joe Manausa Real Estate crew. If this review were any more glowing, it’d be radioactive. I have some newly-wed friends who will be looking for a home soon. You can be sure that I’ll be sending them to Lindsey… and throwing them a life raft in that vast, deep ocean of real estate agents. John C., Home owner
Knowing absolutely nothing about purchasing a home, I walked in the door of Manausa Real Estate and was promptly introduced to John Bozeman and Kevin Milligan. These guys really know their trade, helping me define my price range and area of interest. They took the time to help me understand the concepts of individual home value/equity over time, and the statistical buying/selling trends and rates for different parts of Tallahassee. Fast forward a few weeks, and I'm sitting pretty (or at least stress-less), waiting to close. Putting in an offer on a home was painless, (with John and Kevin handling the paperwork smoothly, yet still stopping to explain the fine print.) Each step along the way is outlined in advance: from pre-approval to viewings, offers, financing, inspection, appraisal, and closing. Manausa Real Estate's website has an MLS search engine that rivals even the biggest internet names. Don't see your dream house listed yet? Trace the outline of where you want to find a home, and define the amenities you want. Their website will send you daily emails as soon as any new house hits the market that meets your parameters, making sure you stay ahead of any other potential viewers/bidders. Manausa doesn't just want you to find a house, they ultimately strive to make you a more educated consumer. Whether you are a first-time buyer, a family looking to upgrade into something larger, or trying to find that perfect home to retire into, Manausa Real Estate has the tools you need to confidently pursue your goal.Zachary H.
Praise to Ron Rice and Tom Hutchinson for the sale of my home. Deal Structured perfect for me as seller and worked well for buyer. I knew I wanted to go with them from the beginning of the first presentation. Great company to work with. Joe Manausa Real Estate receives FIVE stars!!! Recommendelizfarish
We loved working with Stacy from the Manausa team! She was extremely helpful and took time to really understand what we were looking for in a home. Couldn't be happier!Rachelle Spinks
Staci helped my wife and I buy our first home. I was afraid using a VA loan would complicate things, but she made it easy! She was always very responsive to our many, many questions throughout the process.Lamar Loven
I had people looking at my house during the few days it was "pre-listed." Within five hours after it was officially listed, I had two offers. All has gone extremely well. I could not be more pleased.Ron Barineau
We strongly recommend working with Garrett Jacks, Ron Rice and Lindsey Begue of Joe Manausa Real Estate. Each were extremely informative, professional, and attentive to our needs and concerns. They really had our best interest at heart. After meeting with the staff of Joe Manausa Real Estate, we were able to make a sound financial decision for our family. Even though we decided to hold off on selling our home at this time, we were supported throughout the decision making process.Matthew Ducatt
The experience my husband and I had with Joe Manausa Real Estate was professional and satisfactory. We were contacted by Eva Armstrong immediately after our interest in finding a house. She was extremely helpful and patient with our home search and committed herself to finding us the best house for us. I would highly recommend Eva for anybody who is searching for a house soon!Shelby Gochenaur
There isn't enough space available to describe how happy my husband and I are that we chose Joe Manausa Real Estate to buy our first home. From our first introduction meeting to the closing, every person we dealt with at the Thomasville Road office was helpful, friendly, and infinitely patient when lending issues delayed our process repeatedly. Garrett and Cay especially provided expert knowledge and went the extra mile to help us when we had questions or concerns, even after hours and on the weekends. We would 100% go with this company again!Lindsay Smith
It was a pleasure to work with Lindsey and Garrett on a search for a home in Tallahassee. Their professionalism, resources such as their web site and financing, and most importantly their great listening skills to ensure that we found the right home for our family are to be commended. We came in on a Saturday morning and after discussion about what was important in our search Lindsey showed us over 10 properties on that same weekend and ensured that we had an offer on a home by Monday morning. I highly recommend the Joe Manausa team to anyone looking for an experienced team that knows the Tallahassee market inside out, focuses on important data in the search, and is able to deliver quick and superior expertise.Peter R
Miss Eva went above and beyond to help with any situation we had encountered. We would highly recommend this establishment for any and all realty needs.Jaakan Williams
I have been working with Kevin Milligan at Manausa and I have been impressed with his enthusiasm, knowledge of the area and willingness to help during the process of purchasing my home. I live in the Tampa Bay area and he has taken the time to attend two inspections for me and has quickly expedited communication with the seller about any concerns . I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in the Tallahassee area. Thank you Kevin, I know you will continue to help me move as quickly as possible into my dream home.Kathianne Roberts
Lindsey Begue was my agent,she listened carefully to my needs,my style and knew my time restraint. I was able to purchase a house without looking at it. We developed a close relationship quickly and I trusted her to make decisions for all the negotiation of my contract.Chantel Dawsey
Lindsey was very helpful! Very recommendedKelly Gomez
We had a fabulous experience buying a second home with Stacie Boone at Joe Manausa Real Estate. We live out of the country but were interested in buying a second home in Tallahassee for use as a home base/retirement property. We were referred to Stacie by USAA and could not have been happier. She discussed our desires and came up with a list of homes that were strong contenders. Even though we were unable to locate a property that worked for us while on our vacation, she kept her eyes open and helped us locate the perfect place. She took supplemental photos so that we would could get a feel for the home even though we weren't there. We made an offer and she was able to assist us with closing, all while we were still overseas. The level of service we received was top notch and I would definetly recommend Stacie to anyone looking to buy a home in the area. Making such a large purchase can be stressful, especially if you are miles away but Stacie took all of the worry out of the process and helped us to get the perfect home for our family.Simone Jackson
I have been working with Joe Manausa Real Estate and my realtor, Eva Armstrong for about five years. I buy rental properties and occasionally flip a property every now and then. Eva is an extremely knowledgeable, hard working real estate agent. She has helped me locate properties and is familiar with the intricacies of buying and selling properties through self directed IRA's. I can call her at anytime and she is there to show me a property. I appreciate all that she and Joe Manausa Real Estate bring to the table helping me though my transactions and highly recommend this group of professionals for your real estate needs.Ralph Mills
Lindsey Begue! I went on a weekend vacation, and when I came back, she had a full price offer waiting for me along with an acceptance of my offer on a new house. Who sells and purchases within 48 hours??!! Also have a double closing only 10 days apart. Does it get any better?Christi Cofield
My wife and I have had an awesome experience with Joe Manausa Real Estate. The market data and information on the website is the best of any I have seen. Michelle Manausa has served as both a buyers' and selling agent for us. Most recently, Michelle listed our house for sale, and we received an offer immediately (within 3 days). We highly recommend Michelle and Joe Manausa Real Estate if you are looking to buy or sell a home.Jonathan Woodward
My experience with Eva Armstrong and the Joe Manausa Real Estate Agency has been a very pleasant one. They were a wonderful partner during our recent time of purchasing a new home and selling our former one. They went as far as selling our house while we were traveling in the Antarctica. All was done by electronics and everything went as well as could be expected. I appreciate their dedication.Kae Ingram
Nikky Manausa with Joe Manausa Real Estate is one the best real estate agents we have worked with. Whether we needed to call out an Architect (which she did) to see if a modification could be done to a house before we purchased it or whether she needed to get other agents feedback on a house that we really liked, she has gone above and beyond to make sure she gets us in a house we will truly love. We have not found a house yet, but we don't worry about it because we know she is constantly looking on our behalf and trust her 100% to find is exactly what we will love!Erin Boyd
Alex Nunez and the Joe Manausa Real Estate Team were outstanding! Alex listened to our needs and helped us find an amazing home with tons of character and charm. Our new home was bid on by multiple other buyers the first day it hit the market and I know we won that bidding war because Alex was quick to respond and a great negotiator . If you don't want to lose your dream home then hire Alex Nunez and the Joe Manausa Real Estate Team! A+ all the way!!!Ken Dollar
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Kevin throughout the entire home buying process. On day 1, he and Garrett (who is also great!) sat down with us and walked us through the fundamentals of home buying. From there, Kevin worked diligently with us to find our new home. He always answered our questions thoroughly and was always quick getting back to us. We highly recommend Kevin, Garrett, and the entire Joe Manausa team!!zuser20151001191349652
Eva Armstrong with Manausa Real Estate is a true professional and she was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire transaction by provided us with prompt and personalized service. The "Deal" could have easily gone sideways, but for Eva's skills to bring all the parties together (including the Bank) and find a workable solution for everyone involved. I look forward to working with Eva Armstrong again. MAMMark Miller
From pricing my house, to great photos and advice on when to put the house on the market, and seeing me all the way through to closing and finding my new home, Lindsey and Ron were outstanding! In fact almost the entire team helped me at various points so the team concept is one of the strengths of JMRE.Gita Pitter
My realtor was Kevin Milligan, and in all honesty if I could give him 100 stars I would. He was absolutely exceptional to work with. From moment one I knew I was in the right hands and felt completely at ease with him. He is incredibly knowledgeable, attention to detail, very responsive to phone calls and emails, personable and just an overall really great guy. I am a single mother of two teenage daughters and even they loved him. The entire team at Manausa was a dream to work with; everything was scheduled well in advance and clearly communicated. If ever a question or concern they were always very quick to respond and follow up. Hands down, I could not have asked for a better home buying experience!Heather Gallagher
My husband and I had a great experience with Joe Manausa Real Estate and working with Kevin and Cay. We found a house fairly quickly using their website and Kevin helped make everything as painless as possible. We could not have asked for a smoother first time home buying experience.Debora Connors
As a first time home buyer, Joe Manausa Real Estate made the process a breeze! Kevin explained all the ins and outs about buying a home and made easy to understand. He was available any time and answered all our questions with ease. They made sure we had all the paperwork and inspections done so closing was no problem! Kevin did a awesome job and made us feel comfortable. I will use them again and recommend them for real estate needs.Chas Porter
My wife and I recently started looking into buying a house and decided to reach out to Joe Manausa Real Estate Agency for assistance. We have not regretted this decision for a moment since the search for our perfect house started. Their entire staff has been extremely pleasant and eager to please while covering all the small details that are important to us. They are very responsive and have never tried to push us in one direction or the other, they asked the right questions to get to know us and what we were looking for so that we could all work together on finding the house that would fit us best. Lindsey Begue has been our realtor since the beginning and I can’t say enough about how great she has been. While she has been there every step of the way, she could not do so without strong support from the rest of her team such as Cay, Kevin, and Marcus. The entire team has been VERY professional and courteous since day one, when we met at their office to plan out the search that landed us our perfect home.
Thank you so much for everything,
Both Kevin and Garrett were extremely helpful to my wife and I in our home buying experience. Being first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions about the process and Garrett was able to answer those questions along the way with a quick response time. The house we currently lived in was being sold and we had a very short amount of time to find a house that we wanted to make an offer on. Within just a couple of weeks, Garrett found us a house that had every single one of our "check list" items. I would highly recommend the team at Joe Manausa to anybody in the Tallahassee area looking to purchase a home!Andrew Mixon
If you are looking for a place to call home or if you know of anyone looking, you definitely need to contact Joe Manausa Real Estate. I started looking for a house to buy last October and met with John Bozeman and Kevin Milligan. My first visit went great, Kevin explained the process in buying a home which was a little overwhelming to me, but Kevin assured me that they would take care of all the foot work, which they did. Through the process Cay Newell kept me informed of what was going on and what I needed to do for before closing. If I had to buy a home all over again I would definitely use Manausa Real Estate again.Cynthia Stirner
Thank you John, Kevin and Cay!!!!
Excellent personalized service. John Bozeman is super responsive and easy to work with! I will certainly work with them in the future.Glen Wright
Both Garrett and Kevin with Joe Manausa were amazing to work with. As first time home buyers, my husband and I had a lot of questions about the process of buying a home. From the initial meeting with them we knew we would use their company for home buying experience. They helped us every step of the way and made everything quick and easy. If we ever had a question about anything, they were very quick to respond. I would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to buy a house in the Tallahassee Area!Kaitlyn Mixon
My husband and I had a great experience with Joe Manausa Real Estate and working with Kevin and Cay. We found a house fairly quickly using their website and Kevin helped make everything as painless as possible. We could not have asked for a smoother first time home buying experience.Debbie Baldwin
I had not purchased a house in 25 years, so the smartest thing I did was to contact the team at Joe Manausa Real Estate when I decided to move to Tallahassee in February. By using their online site, I could choose from hundreds of houses from my own home to make the search easier. When I found the 5 or 6 houses I was really interested in, Garrett Jacks helped me tremendously. He showed me the houses I has chosen, then helped me make a great choice. I purchased my house in March, moved in April, and am living a wonderful new life in my new home! Thanks to everyone, especially Garrett, for making this major life change one of the best decisions of my life.Linda Martin
My husband and I worked with Michelle Manausa as our realtor. We are happily set up in our new home now and have to say that she is the reason we were able to find the perfect first home. We were all over the place when looking at different options, and as first time home buyers it was hard for us to stay realistic! Michelle definitely helped steer us in the right direction, was knowledgable, super responsive and accommodating to our schedules and was really patient when my husband and I went on tangents! We are very happy that we chose to work with Joe Manausa Real Estate, and definitely recommend others to do so!Caroll Xenophon
I highly recommend Joe Manausa Real Estate! Even though I have purchased real estate in the past, I was impressed by their market knowledge and process approach.Brittany Holmes
From the first appointment, they blew my mind and set us on course to save serious money when we bought our new home.
Thanks for all of your help!
Why experience with Eva Armstrong with Joe Manausa Real Estate was stellar! Eva never lost patience with us trying to find the perfect property. When issues came up right at closing time (no fault of hers) she worked diligently to solve the problems going above and beyond what I would have expected from anyone. She was there to answer any questions we had whether it was about the process or the area. Thanks to Eva Armstrong for helping us find the perfect home and making the process seamless. I would recommend Eva to anyone and will certainly do so in the future!R Watson
I strongly recommend Realtor Kevin Milligan. He is a true professional. Kevin is smart, capable and energetic with extensive knowledge of the Tallahassee real estate market. The entire Joe Manausa real estate team is first-rate and customer friendly.Ron Horton
Michelle Manausa with Joe Manausa Real Estate was extremely helpful when we were looking for our home. We were first time home buyers and we were hesitant throughout the whole process, but Michelle put as at ease and walked us through each step. We were extremely picky about what we wanted in a home and Michelle kept working with us and trying until the right home was found. I highly recommend Michelle Manausa to anyone looking for a home, especially if you're a first time home buyer.Lauren Burke
This is the best experience that I have ever had with a real estate company! My husband and I are in the process of selling a house in Albany, Ga and we are now buying a home here in Tallahassee, Fl. It was a complicated situation, but Garrett was very patient with everything, and he went above and beyond to find us our dream home and to help get us approved. I cannot recommend this company enough! It was and still is a real pleasure working with them.Melanie Rowan
Stacie Boone is the best! We were referred to her by a coworker that knew we were looking for our first home. We were nervous at first, especially the first time we looked at homes with Stacie; we were buying in an extremely competitive price range for Tallahassee. Stacie was extremely confident in both her abilities and her team at Joe Manausa Real Estate. After that first outing, Stacie was able to get a great read on what we were looking for. The next time she took us out, she took us to about eight different homes and three of them were perfect. She was kind and patient enough to take us out one more time after that to look at other homes before we were ready to make an offer on a home she had shown us earlier in the week. We made an offer on a Friday and we had an executed contract the following Monday. Stacie then provided us with a list of what we needed to handle and what she would take care of. She was extremely organized and it made the home buying process easier for us. When we hit a roadblock with our intended lender, Stacie was able to get us in with another lender. She was very reassuring that we were in great hands and we still closed on the house on time. We could not have asked or hoped for a better realtor. If we ever need to buy or sell, we're going with Stacie Boone. I don't think there are enough adjectives to describe how wonderful she truly is.Emily Hershman
My husband and I bought our first home recently, and chose the Joe Manausa real estate company, and used Stacie Boone as our realtor. She was amazing to work with. She explained every step with patience (trust me, I had A LOT of questions) as most first time home buyers would. Not only did Stacie Boone save us $5,000 on our closing cost, but she helped us choose the right home, neighborhood, and of course school district that best fit our needs. She was very knowledgeable on every topic from different neighborhoods to what type of loan would best suit us financially. Whether you are a first time home buyer or not, Stacie is who I would recommend. We will definitely be working with her when it comes time for our next home purchase.Amanda Jones
My experience with Manausa has been a good one. The staff was very professional and personable. The homebuyer presentation was super informative and the idea of having a team of experts on my side helped to ease my anxiety about the process. John was great to work with. He answered all of my questions and was always available to show the properties that I wanted to see. He also shared important facts that helped me understand more about the homebuying process. The overall experience with Manausa has been great thus far. Met with them mid-March, closing in mid-May.Steph Morris-Loud
Joe Manausa Real Estate has been very helpful, definitely with the guidance and assistant of Market Specialist John Bozeman. John Bozeman played a very important part in helping me to understand the step by step procedures on choosing and selecting on what soon to be my first home ownership. I recommend Joe Manausa Real Estate to everyone who are first time buyers and even if you are looking for your next dream home. Thanks again for everything.LaMonta Peterson
Top quality organization. I would recommend them whole heartedly. House sold fast and closing was quick.David D
I couldn't be happier with my recent experience with Joe Manausa Real Estate. My mother was recently looking to downsize to a home more manageable for her age etc.D Potter
I live out of state and I had concerns about my mother (in her late 70's) buying a home by herself. I have had negative real estate experiences in the past and I was worried her agent would not be working for her best interests. So I planned a trip into town from The Midwest and arranged to meet and interview multiple companies to help my mom.
After meeting with Kevin and his team, I could not have been more impressed. They not only provided us fantastic market information, but they also took the time to ask the right questions on how to best help my mother. Her needs were #1. The other agents we interviewed made the meeting "all about them" and although my mom was not going to spend a fortune, Kevin made her feel like she was the most important customer in the world.
I left town feeling confident that my mother was in good hands with Kevin, Garrett, and the rest of the team (being military Veterans didn't hurt either).
Sure enough their actions backed up their words. They found her the ideal home for the next chapter in her life in only a couple weeks. The process was seamless and communication lines were open to keep me informed too (thank you Cay!). My mom is extremely happy. It's refreshing to work with professionals that have integrity and know their craft. I'd give 10 stars I could!!
Selling my home proved a challenge, but one that was accomplished by Andy Elliot, Ron Rice, and company at Joe Manausa Real Estate. They stuck with me through repairs that had to be made, the contingency period on my place, and I even a hiccup with a false positive lead test ! I got a better price for my house than I ever thought I would have. They calmed me down when my anxiety got the better of me and I thought sure that the house was never going to sell just by being re-assuring and giving me direction with what I needed to do to help my house sell. I can't thank them enough.Jeffrey Hamilton
Eva Armstrong went above and beyond to help us figure out all the details of buying our dream fixer-upper. We had lots of questions, and she was willing to work hard to find out the answers--all the while she treated us well. We are so excited about the house and grateful for such a good care during the process!Karen S
This review is for Kevin Milligan at Manausa Realty.Victoria Rasmussen
I am a young widow with an 11 month old baby. I live in Atlanta, but decided to relocate to Tallahassee after my husband's death. My sister attends FSU, and this way I wouldn't live alone. It was my first time purchasing a home. I know absolutely nothing about realty, and had no idea how intensive the process is. Kevin was my saving grace.
I had several recommendations for realtors in the Tallahassee area sent to me by family. I decided to do my own research and came upon these reviews for Manausa Realty. I noticed that they were overwhelmingly positive and many of them were about a realtor named Kevin. I decided to give him a call. Now, I wasn't purchasing a particularly expensive house, and I'm very young. That combination would usually make me a less than desirable client, or at least less of a priority. Right away, I felt like a VIP client. I felt very comfortable that he would actually do real work FOR me, and for my interests, not his.
I can't describe to you how wonderful he is. He was in CONSTANT communication with me from start to finish, even when I had anxieties about the closing very late at night. He was well-researched on the homes he showed us, and I could tell he had actually put in work to find us a good fit. He was there for me every step of the way, and even took care of things that aren't necessarily the realtors responsibility. He made my life, and the purchase of this house, exponentially easier on me. I compare him to the other professionals employed throughout the process of buying the house, and the difference is stark. My mom, who has bought some 13 houses, was beyond impressed with him. It seems Kevin takes the dedication and commitment involved in being a member of the Navy and applies it to his job as a realtor.
There are really no words for me to describe how much I would recommend him. Really, he was fabulous. When our closing had a very slight hiccup (100% not his fault), we had to beg him to leave for the beach vacation with his wife that he was getting more and more late for. We were in the capable hands of Danny Manausa and the team at Manausa Law, but Kevin was determined to be there for us.
I feel like people reading this are going to think this review is too good to be true, but I can't tell you how grateful I am to Kevin and what a great person and realtor he is. I don't even understand how he can take such care and time for each individual client. I felt like his top priority. He is now my realtor for life!
Kevin Milligan with Joe Manausa RE is the BEST! He helped my daughter buy her first house and it went above and beyond for her. We could not have picked a better person to work with. He is an exceptional realtor and an exception person. Would recommend him as the BEST realtor in the Tallahassee area.Deborah Whittington
Garrett & Kevin were extremely helpful, professional & flexible with their time with us & our parents. We give them five stars for our experience. Missy & Mark HollingsworthKathleen Lynch
Lindsey Begue at Joe Manausa Real Estate has been a life saver!!! My husband and I have been house hunting for quote some time now with no luck, we were very hesitant about getting a realtor because I felt like other realtors we were around were almost like car salesman....very pushy. It was like night and day meeting with Lindsey Begue and Kevin Milligan. The really sit you down and explain the ends and outs of what's going on with our market right now, knowing what's going on makes it a lot easier to go through the process. They didn't make me and my husband feel bad for not liking a house or not wanting to make that leap so quickly. Lindsey was always around to show us any and every house we liked or some she saw that she knew we would like. We are now under contract for our very first home and I couldn't be more excited!!! Choosing Joe Manausa Real Estate was the first step in the right direction for us in purchasing our first home and I couldn't be more grateful for their help!!Amy Williams
We had a delightful experience with Joe Manausa Real Estate while looking at homes in Tallahassee, FL during June and early July 2016! Every person that we met was extremely professional and friendly! They listened to our needs, showed us various homes, helped us see potential of several properties. Never pushed us or intimidated us during this process! What more can a person ask for when making a major, life changing purchase? Agents Garrett and Kevin were a pleasure to work with! I can not leave out the office support staff! I was having some anxious moments with my electronics at home and getting utilities added, etc. These wonderful ladies were caring, patient and helpful to the end!Theresa Hollingsworth
Everyone at Joe Manausa Real Estate was extremely helpful and personable. Marcus was our realtor, and he helped us find our first home! He was always accessible no matter the time, and was there with answers for every step of the home buying process. Would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy a home.Jennifer Dixon
We could not have been more pleased with our agent Eva Armstrong with Joe Manausa Real Estate. She worked tirelessly to make our home buying experience a very efficient and pleasant one. She was extremely knowledgeable and kept us informed at every turn. Highly recommended.Shelley Mansberger
We have recently purchased a home through Garrett Jacks and Joe Manausa Real Estate; we cannot express how helpful this group of people is to work with. We would recommend this group to anyone in the market for a home in the area. The whole process went extremely smooth. They are great to work with!!Lynn Ozier-Wansreski
We hired Eva Armstrong and Joe Manausa Real Estate to help us sell our house on the St. Marks River south of Tallahassee and couldn’t have been more satisfied. Her knowledge of real estate in the Tallahassee area and her energy levels in pursuing our objective went well above and beyond the call of duty. Our house presented major obstacles that she overcame with grace, elegance and plain hard work, far better than any realtor we have ever dealt with. Recently, we have been absentee owners now living in the Pacific Northwest. We came back to check on the house to find that it had been throroughtly trashed by the previous renters (think of hazmat suits needed for safe entry - we kid you not!).David Gluckman
To make it livable either for sale or rent was going to take a great deal of planning, money and work. Eva stayed with us every step of the way from finding and vetting contractors to checking and personally overseeing needed work when we returned home. Throughout the process she kept us informed of her progress, answered all of our questions and promptly returned phone calls.
When the house was ready to put on the market, she worked out a sales plan that produced a number of interested potential buyers in a very short time. When the right offer came in, she arranged the closing in record time, and we got the amount we agreed to with no hassles or delays. We can’t say enough good things about Eva and the backup she got from her company. We highly recommend her.
My wife and I sold our house in Tallahassee in less than a week with an over well above a solid asking price. Ron, Andy, and the rest of the team were fantastic to work with.Chris Snow
Sold a townhome that was in rough shape, buyers were scarce. Travis kept me informed the whole way and I received my asking price. Highly recommended.Mike Manausa
I sold a townhome that was in rough shape and buyers were scarce. Travis kept me updated and I received my asking price within only a few months on the market. Highly recommended.user35720080
Working with Marcus Edenfield at Joe Manausa Real Estate was an absolute pleasure! He is a true professional and made our home buying experience worry-free and enjoyable. Marcus was extremely responsive to all our questions and requests, always getting back to us in 24 hours or less...something hard to come by these days!! He was able to facilitate the signing of all our pre-closing paperwork remotely as we were in the middle of moving from another city. He also made sure to check in with us a few days before closing to make sure we didn't have any last minute questions / issues to be addressed. We always felt like Marcus was on top of everything, which made us feel at ease throughout the buying process. We would highly recommend working with Marcus Edenfield on your next real estate transaction.Pamela Nicole
Sold a townhome that was in rough shape, buyers were scarce. Travis kept me informed the whole way and I received my asking price. Highly recommended.Michael Manausa
I closed on our house in Tallahassee this past weekend and it was the smoothest most painless experience I could have asked for as an out of town buyer, thanks to Lindsey Begue of Joe Manausa Real Estate. Lindsey's customer focus is outstanding, and her knowledge of the details throughout the buying process helped me to be prepared well before the actual close date. Her attention to detail also helped prevent what could have been several time consuming and potentially costly errors. If you are considering Joe Manausa Real Estate you are in good hands, and if you are working with Lindsey you can be assured of a fantastic buying experience.Haresh Nagarajan
I never thought we'd sell our house so quickly! The service we received was excellent. Andy was very thorough, kept us updated every step of the way. I will gladly refer them to my friends and family.Mark Sepulveda
This is the first time I've sold a home. I knew nothing about the process and when I met with John and Andy the first time I knew I was in good hands. They explained what to expect and what will happen each step of the way. I am so appreciative that they take the time to explain everything. The folks at Joe Manausa do their homework and have on hand all the stats for the market in my particular neighborhood and Tallahassee and the surrounding area in general. Very impressive. They even generated interest on my home before it was "live" on the market. WOW....RIGHT?Cari Morton
Marcus and Kevin both did an outstanding job working with us on finding a new home. They walked us through the buying process so there were no surprises. They listened to our wish list and kept us within our budget. Marcus was super patient and showed us several houses over several weeks. I would definitely recommend Joe Manausa real estate. They have a great crew.David Null
My wife and I arrived in Tallahassee in mid-July from Maine and started our house search with Garrett Jacks and Marcus Edenfield. These two real estate executives displayed tireless energy in their zeal to get us into a property that met every criteria we outlined in our initial meeting with their agency. They are a real credit to the Manausa firm and we are happy we found them. Most important, we found the perfect house for us and closed on this property in less than 30 days! The whole Manausa Group seems to be exceptionally goal oriented and work to making their client base comfortable and happy. That's impressive!Jerry Mather
This is the first time I've sold a home. I knew nothing about the process and when I met with John and Andy the first time I knew I was in good hands. They explained what to expect and what will happen each step of the way. I am so appreciative that they take the time to explain everything. The folks at Joe Manausa do their homework and have on hand all the stats for the market in my particular neighborhood and Tallahassee and the surrounding area in general. Very impressive. They even generated interest on my home before it was "live" on the market. WOW....RIGHT?Uh Oh
Manausa and Associates helped sell our house. Their knowledge of the local market and expertise made it a very quick and pleasant experience! Our agent was very professional and helped me through each step of the process. We were very surprised how quickly it sold. The entire process from start to finish was very smooth.Google User
