Testimonials For Petra Norris - Lakeland FL Broker REALTOR
Testimonials are always a great resource for future clients who are looking to sell or buyer homes in Lakeland and the surrounding cities. The latest one is no different. I was found through my blogging about Sandpiper Golf & Country Club community, specifically my monthly market reports. The sellers had a total of two properties which they inherited to sell and all of them lived in different states - I do love electronic signatures :). Both properties were on the market for almost two years until I was contacted, in fact it was the talk of the community for being so long on the market. From the time I listed the homes until they were sold, both on the same day, took only 60 days.
We could not have been happier with the service you provided. From the moment we listed the properties with you, it was clear we had made the right choice. Your efforts and professionalism were second to none. Your marketing was outstanding and your communication with us scattered to the four winds was extremely valuable. Thank you again for all your hard work to sell our properties.
Thank you so much for your help selling our properties. From the very first, you made sure our properties were advertised well, you stayed on top of things, and handled the complexities of owners in multiple states with efficiency and patience. I would recommend you to anyone who wants to sell their property!
If you are currently experiencing that your home in Lakeland Florida is not selling, give me a call 863-619-6918 or email me at petra[at]petranorris.com so I can show you what can be done differently.
Thank you so much for all your help. You really made the process very easy for us – from making us aware of all the necessary paperwork to providing a drop box so we could easily upload the documents to you. We also appreciate the way you were on top of correspondence with the bank and other realtors. You are very knowledgeable about the short sale process and we would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to move forward with a short sale.
Hope all is well with you and your family and truly, thank you for everything!

We just wanted to send you a letter thanking you for your help in selling our home. Our experience was wonderful and we will never forget your understanding and compassion in our situation. It was a very difficult decision for us to sell our home after 21 years.
We could not believe we had showings within days of you posting our home. Each and every time we had a showing you gave us plenty of time to prepare and if we could not, you were again always understanding and able to reschedule.
We cannot think of a time that you were never available to take our phone calls, emails or even our texts. You answered all of questions and explained things to us in detail and if we didn’t understand, you were patient to explain again. And trust us we had lots of questions/concerns!!!
We also liked the fact that you handled EVERYTHING for us. We could not believe it. Once we started the original paperwork, you took it from there.
You have also maintained contact with us after the selling of our home. You were recommended to us by a friend and we recommended you to one of our friends. All 3 of us had wonderful experiences with you and we will recommend you to all of our friends. When we are ready to purchase our next home, you can be reassured we will be calling you!!
Thank you again Petra!!

Judy & I want to thank you for your professionalism, perseverance and positive attitude in negotiating our retirement home purchase. We understand that your job was made more complicated as you had to work with us from California. After jointly visiting numerous Florida homes without successfully finding the “perfect” one, with your help we choose to purchase a foreclosed home owned by Fannie Mae after we had returned to California.
You handled all of the multitude of details to make our purchase happen, and you kept us fully informed while successfully managing our high expectations. Your real estate experience and understanding of how to work in this difficult and complex real estate market was invaluable, and we consider you to be an exceptional real estate broker.
We unconditionally recommend you to any client who wants to work with a professional, experienced and client focused broker.

Erleichtert wurde unsere Suche, die Beantwortung unserer Fragen und die Vorbereitung des Kaufs durch die vorbildliche Kommunikation per Skype , Fax und Telefon. Trotz Zeitverschiebung von Deutschland zu USA hat die Kommunikation hervorragend geklappt.
Durch deine aussagekräftigen Bilder und der ausführlichen Beschreibung der angefragten Objekte konnten wir uns sogar von Deutschland aus schon entscheiden.Erstaunt waren wir das alles so schnell und unkompliziert ging. Nun sind wir stolze Besitzer „unseres“ Florida-Vacation-Home.
Danke nochmals. Wir sind froh dich gefunden zu haben und können deinen Service nur wärmstens empfehlen.

Thank you for your outstanding professionalism and support throughout our home buying process. We appreciated your patience answering our questions tirelessly over and over again. You were always so far possible attainable for us. You were always available for us when possible. Despite the different time zones between United States and Germany, your communication was outstanding through telephone, skype, email and fax. The significance of your picture taking and your detailed description of the properties you viewed enabled us to decide on which home to purchase from Germany.
Surprisingly to us the whole buying process was done smoothly and fast as we are now proud owners of our “Florida Vacation Home”.
Thank you again. We are so happy that we have found you and would highly recommend you to anyone who is seeking your service.

Petra Norris helped me when I needed help selling my house. After much searching in the Lakeland, FL area for short sale real estate agents, Petra's name kept coming up. I contacted her and we set up an appointment for 2 days later. She was on time and very friendly. I figured the sale was going to be a year long thing but she had a buyer for my property in 3 months time. She stayed with me and answered all of my questions no matter how trivial they were. Petra even stayed in email contact with me while she was on holiday. Short sales are not fun as they usually come from a "bad thing that has happened". In my case, it was a lay-off. Petra made the process "not" bad at all. She always has a smile, she is upbeat and just a wonderful person to be around. She is professional and gets the job done. Do business with her. I promise you won't be disappointed. Petra, I'm still indebted to treat you and your husband to dinner. :-) Take care, Benjamin White
Petra assisted us greatly with the purchase of our first home. She was there every step of they way. Explaining fully and clearly the process from beginning to end and we feel she worked with us not just professionally but also on a personal level. On many occasions she went out of her way to assist us and help make the process move on quickly and efficiently. We would highly recomment Petra to anyone who may be looking for a Realtor.

My Husband and I were looking for a house on the north side of Lakeland, and when we spoted a house we wanted to look at Petra was always there to help and support us. Once we found the home we had been looking for, Petra made the entire home buying experience seamless. I highly recommend her. Lynn Haynes
I presently live in New Mexico and from the very first day I called Petra we were able to begin the "Home Purchase" process. Throughout the entire process I was completly informed of our progress, also of when and what to do. After we closed on my home Petra continued to help me get the Home ready to move in. Without her Professional help none of this would have been posible. Allready decided that "if and when" I sell this Home, she will be the Realtor I contact to list my Property. Good luck to all !!Philip L Howell - November 26, 2010
Thank you so much for all the help you gave me on the sale of my house and the purchase of my new home. Your suggestions on what to do to make the house more attractive to buyers obviously worked. I was really shocked when we got so many offers in the first few days. All of the offers came with different terms and down payments. It was great to have someone who help sort through all the jargon to pick the offer that was not only generous, but the safest option.
As I had heard that it could takes weeks for a house to sell, I was not mentally or otherwise prepared to move out as quickly as I ended up having to do. But again you helped so much, showing me a variety of homes to choose from in different parts of Lakeland. Each one had interesting qualities. When I fell in love with this house, you stayed on top of the bidding processes and worked through a couple of glitches with the home owner to see it through, timing the two closings so that everything worked out smoothly. I especially appreciate that there was such a good line of communication. You kept me informed as to the progress of the sales and you were always available if I had any questions.
Dear Mrs. Norris:
I would like to take this opportunity today, since all my properties in Texas have been successfully sold, to express my gratitude for your excellent, professional and loyal service. You have managed nearly 200 properties in Texas with diligence and acumen for over 12 years. I had always the feeling that your profession was led by the maxim that my interest were to 100% entrusted in each and every way.

We were very satisfied with your service regarding the purchase and sale of our property in Venice, FL. At that time, when we asked you to look for a suitable property, we were nevertheless quite surprised how quickly you could present us a suitable object. Moreover, the condo corresponded completly to our desires. And we have enjoyed ourselves there for over seven years. When our first son was born we had to separate us from our beautiful condo. Once more, you were very helpful with the handling of the sale and again, the sale of our condominium to find a buyer so quickly was very surprising to us - and more importantly with great results. Should we return to Florida, and you can be certain of that, and when our two sons will be old enough, then we are certainly again "yours". We are already looking forward to this day.
Greetings from Germany send you
