Brian & Mary Ann Mills, Merrick NY

“In March of 2008 my wife, Mary Ann, and I visited Naples for the first time. We had always heard great things about the area and were intrigued to see it for ourselves. Our few days of rest and relaxation morphed into a “let’s take a look around” at available condos. Knowing that the real estate market in the area had been in a correction phase from years of ever-increasing prices we thought it might be a good time to buy in Naples.

Enter…Matt Klinowski…Agent, Downing Frye. Over the course of 2 days, Matt patiently educated us about all things Naples. He took the time to show us properties in many different locations throughout the greater-Naples area with the goal of making us aware of the many options, and pros and cons associated with each. More importantly, Matt was able to properly read our preferences and sort through our likes and dislikes as he continued to formulate a proper game-plan based on our feedback. No hard sell. No telling us what we should do. No frustration with our countless questions as we came up to speed. After a few days our stay in Naples came to an end and we headed back to cold N.Y. unable to pull the trigger on a property. Never did we sense from Matt that we wasted his time. In fact, quite the contrary. We truly enjoyed our time with Matt as we trudged around from community to community in search of the best fit.

Based on what Matt had learned about us from our time together he was able to assemble a list of properties that matched our likes and needs. After one more daytrip to Naples and spending the better part of a day viewing condos with Matt we were able to make a decision to purchase. Matt had been able to find the place that perfectly fit our needs. After a bit of negotiation, most of it done by Matt on our behalf, we came to an agreement and closed on our condo in May of 2008. We were extremely happy with the outcome, but even more impressed by just how easy the process was for us. Never once did we have a concern that things were not proceeding according to plan. For that, we have Matt Klinowski to thank. Matt saw to every detail and went above and beyond to assure that we were properly represented and protected as buyers.

Matt provided to us service with a smile on top of a true professionalism throughout the entire process. We consider ourselves very lucky to have chosen Matt to assist us in our search.”
