"Amy is the consummate professional. She worked tirelessly with us to effect a sale of our property, texting and telephoning late into the night and through the Christmas holiday to bring buyer and seller together. She offered creative solutions that worked to the benefit of all parties involved. We strongly recommend Amy to anyone looking for someone with deep experience and knowledge of Sarasota."

"Amy Drake made the process of buying our new condominium simply amazing. She personally guided us through every step of the two-year process, giving us helpful feedback along the way. No matter how many questions or concerns we had, Amy was always available for us. She knew how best to work with the developer and to get us the timely answers we needed. We consider Amy the local expert when it comes to purchasing new condominiums - we were so glad to have her on “our team"."

"Julie was an absolute delight to work with! From start to finish, her responsiveness, extensive knowledge, resourcefulness & upbeat, positive, warm & friendly personality made for a very smooth transaction. She went above & beyond to ensure our purchase came together without a hitch. Moving from NJ to FL & buying our house sight unseen, Julie made things feel like we were right there with her during several video calls. We are very grateful for everything Julie did for us & can not recommend her enough. Thank you very much!"

"We have lived on both coasts and worked with a number of agents over the years. Lisa is not just among the best she is THE best. She is smart, motivated, thorough, personable, a good communicator and skilled negotiator. She loves her job, respects and enjoys her clients and it shows."

- Nancy and Chuck P.







"Lisa was wonderful to work with over the many months on our journey to transition to Sarasota, FL. She sent us places to look at online while we were still in Colorado so that she could get to know us and what our preferences would be with regard to location and style. Once we arrived in Sarasota, Lisa spent an entire holiday weekend with us to look at available land, talk with architects and visit potential homes. Once we picked out the home we wanted to purchase, Lisa and her staff were efficient, thorough, and 'user friendly' in helping us to get a contract in place. Finally, Lisa was not only our Realtor, she was also our Sarasota tour guide. We are happy to say that Lisa was instrumental in helping us acquire our Sarasota dream home."

"Lisa was a warm, friendly, and very professional agent from interview to sale, and was always available, along with her team, to help us with the challenges of a remote sale. She has an excellent grasp of the Sarasota market, and understood exactly the strengths and weaknesses of our property. Her pricing estimate was exactly what we were offered, and as a result of her assistance, there were no surprises throughout the process. We never felt anything but 100% commitment on her part to our satisfaction with the process, and would recommend her without reservations."

- Roberto A.







"Julie was so great to work with. She helped us find a property that was only on the market a few minutes. She then went and did a video call with us that night (we are out of town) and helped us submit an offer that night. She always kept us up to date as we went through the process and ensured a smooth closure. She is very professional and thorough. Cannot recommend her enough!"

- Eric and Heather B.



"Lisa Rooks Morris is a seller's dream agent. She is intelligent, sensitive, attentive and respectful. She is realistic about the pricing and a take-charge advocate. Everything she asserted came to realization. We were 1,100 miles away and never worried about the management of the sale. It was businesslike and pain free. Her assistant JoAnn knowledgeably filled in the spaces so that we were never without someone to consult."

- Sandra T.






"Working with Julie was like hitting the jackpot for us. It is so challenging to trust that you’ve chosen the right agent in a new city (that you don’t know a ton about) but Julie made the process seamless and fun. In a tough buyers market, Julie moved quickly, worked hard & found us the perfect home. She was thorough in every part of the process. We felt at ease that everything was being handled properly and that Julie didn’t overlook anything. It was a breath of fresh air to have someone as diligent and detail oriented as her. Not only is she an exceptional agent, she is very fun to be around and incredibly kind. We hope that this is only the start of getting to know Julie. We feel so fortunate to have found her. Working with her was the best decision and we highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for a new home or selling their home. Thank you for finding us a home our family will be so happy in."

- Lauren and Jared D.



"Lisa Rooks Morris & her entire team were truly a pleasure to work with. Lisa's experience and knowledge gave us great confidence during both the sales process of our home and purchase process of our new home. I would highly recommend her & she'll be the first person we'd call if we decide to move again!"

- Sue F.








"We arrived in Longboat Key having sold our Northern home, and we wanted to find a property within a specific time window to call home. We had been in touch with Lisa before coming south, and she was ready to show us properties upon our arrival. While Lisa couldn't control available condo inventory, she thoroughly knew the ins, outs, details and fair market value of what was available. She was efficient, very, very effective, helpful in helping us evaluate properties, developing negotiating strategies and flagging any "watch out" areas of evaluating value and negotiating. Lisa's professionalism was always on display, and it was clear that it was helpful in negotiating with the other realtor involved. Lisa was readily available for any questions and her follow-up and attention to detail was reassuring and reduced the stress that can be associated with the buying process. And, all of this while we were not her only client, but we certainly felt that we were! We're happily in possession of a wonderful condo. We would highly recommend Lisa."

"We were totally delighted with our Sotheby’s agents, Cheryl Loeffler & Lisa Rooks Morris. They analyzed and marketed our property perfectly, were honest and aggressive, and were respectful and professional at all times. We would recommend the Loeffler & Rooks Morris Group and Sotheby’s without hesitation."

- Susan and Tim C.



"Working with the Loeffler & Rooks Morris Group made our transition from California such a pleasure. They made us feel welcome in our new community from the very beginning. They really know the market, and took the time to get to know us, too, so we could use our limited house-hunting time effectively. In the end, we gained both a beautiful home and cherished friends."

- Rebecca M.








"Lisa is a best-in-class professional who brings years of success in the Sarasota market to the selling process. Her sophisticated manner and broad experience give her an edge among her peers. We were very happy with the persistence she showed in moving our sale along despite challenging times and demanding buyers. Lisa’s negotiating expertise was key to our achieving the right deal. Just as important, Lisa’s friendly demeanor certainly makes for great showings!"

- John F.



"As a real estate professional with more than 40 years of experience, I would rate Lisa as absolutely the best residential realtor I have ever had the experience to work with. She was extremely intelligent in both planning the marketing of our home and the execution of the sales contracts we received. When difficulties arose, as often happens, she demonstrated true grit and an entrepreneurial spirit to overcome and master the situation. She forever will be our number one choice to buy or sell a residential property. It is with great pleasure I wholeheartedly recommend her."

- Bruce R.









"I fell in love with Cheryl Loeffler ten years ago when I moved to Sarasota to begin a new job. She welcomed me to “paradise” and then set about finding me the perfect home within my budget constraints. For ten years, every time I drove into beautiful University Park Country Club I thought of Cheryl and how happy I was in my new Sarasota home. Fast forward ten years. When I decided to move, the call went out to Cheryl. In no time she was able to sell my home with no fuss at a fair price. Cheryl is the consummate professional because she obviously loves what she does. She makes you feel you are her only client, that you are special, and that she will not sleep until you are satisfied. She worries about both the big things and the little things so you do not have to."

- Diane L.



"This letter will serve as a statement of my enthusiastic support and endorsement for Cheryl Loeffler marketer, negotiator, counselor, marketing manager and realtor extra ordinaire.
As brief background, I appointed Cheryl Loeffler exclusive marketing agent for the Grande Riviera condominium project on Golden Gate Point in downtown Sarasota. Grande Riviera is a 13 unit condominium with prices per unit ranging from just under $2 million to in excess of $5 million.
Cheryl's contribution to this project was clearly enormous and uniquely pivotal to it's success. She began this project literally at project inception. She participated in all facets of the project ...... providing invaluable input to the design of the building, floor plans, positioning of the building and, of course, the development of all marketing materials as well as the implementation of a highly effective and laser-like focused marketing plan.
Cheryl accurately identified that we had to target high net worth people who would be willing to invest substantially in high end real estate in Sarasota and to do this on the basis of just plans and renderings. Needless to say that the marketing materials that were created brought Grande Riviera to life and drove significant traffic, which in tum led to an amazingly rapid sale of Grande Riviera units.
I also must note that Cheryl's unique ability to work with prospective clients and cause them to understand and appreciate the Grande Riviera project was truly a delight to behold. Her negotiating skills were nothing short of phenomenal.
Beyond all of these wonderful skills which Cheryl possesses, I must say she is simply a pleasure to work with, as she is the consummate professional. She possesses enormous knowledge, expertise and had all the skills necessary to bring our project to successful fruition. Cheryl is the invaluable project manager one day, marketer the next, and sales professional closing the deal later on that afternoon.
I would not hesitate to utilize Cheryl's talents and expertise in any of my future development projects. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to call me at 941-362-9377."
