I hardly know where to start in trying to convey my feelings of gratitude.  You have represented my interests as a client and as a person more professionally and dearly than anyone else I've ever done business with in my 71 years on this planet!

Sometimes we're lucky and cross paths with someone who expands the quality of our lives in every direction.  Such is the case with you Loretta.  Sveta and I love you dearly as a friend, more like family, and admire you so much for your sense of personal integrity and professionalism.  You are our dear sweet Loretta who seems to be continuously flying all around Lake County helping everyone as much as you can.  Just thinking about you brightens up our day.

You've done such a good job on the properties we've bought and sold through you, but even more valuable than monetary gain or acquisition, has been the experience of having you there representing us.  It's all just been so incredibly pleasant, and comforting. 

You're so uniquely professional, and so passionately responsible and caring.  You're quite a gal Loretta.

Our heartfelt thanks,

Charles and Svetlana Ullain - Eustis, FL

Loretta Maimone is one of a kind. Her professionalism was exemplary, her communication skills were unmatched and the kindness in her heart was overflowing. Loretta knows the ins and out of the real estate business like few others do. She is an amazing people-person and problem solver. When there was a problem Loretta would go into fix-it mode and she knew someone who on last-minute notice would come and fix the problem, even during a monster hurricane. Being out-of-state in Colorado selling a family member’s home in Florida that was so key for me. Loretta was always available when I needed her despite the 2-hour time zone difference. I appreciate her help more than words can say.  Loretta is simply the best.

After interviewing several realtors, my husband and I set up an appointment with Loretta Maimone. When we met Loretta, her warm and friendly demeanor made us feel as if we had known her for years. Her complete disclosure, no-nonsense approach, and knowledge of the real estate market made it an easy decision to choose her as our realtor. Loretta and her co-worker, Catherine McKenzie, were a constant source of encouragement throughout the entire process. As we prepared to sell our home, they recommended cost effective modifications that we could make to receive top dollar. Once the house was on the market, one of them attended every single showing, even showings by other realtors. We have never had a realtor do this before, and we appreciated it so much for the added level of security that it provided for our home as well as the assistance that was given to potential buyers, as they were able to receive immediate answers to any questions that they might have. In addition, we were able to gain quick feedback on the showing. Loretta and her team also worked tirelessly to help us find a new home. When we finally found our dream home, the home was owned by a corporation and the process did not prove to be an easy one. Loretta and her team fought for us and never gave up. They truly wanted us to have the home as much as we wanted to have it. We sincerely believe that we now live in our forever home due to the persistence and diligence of Loretta, Catherine, and their Transaction Coordinator, Misi Hopwood. This team will always feel like family to us, and we are eternally grateful!

If you want the best realtor in the area, you need to call Loretta. Our experience with Loretta and her team (Catherine and Misi) was phenomenal. When we called Loretta, we weren't even sure we were going to list. We just wanted an idea of what our home may be worth. Loretta and Catherine came out and looked at our property, then sat with us, pulled up comps, and gave us an honest assessment of the value of our home. There was no pressure. They left information and told us if we wanted to list, to give them a call, and we are so happy we did! From the day the team came to take pictures, all the way to closing, we experienced nothing less than top notch personal, professional service. Loretta even called us a week after our closing to be sure that we were alright after hurricane Ian! If you want a realtor who truly cares and is dedicated to an outstanding experience, we highly recommend you contact Loretta and her team!

Loretta Maimone has been our realtor of choice several times. She has always been there to guide us. She always maintains a professional but understanding demeanor and gets the job done. I highly recommend her to anyone for assistance in the real estate business.

Gary and Karen Allen - Tavares, FL

We chose Loretta Maimone for her knowledge, love, and passion for our Lake County area and for her vast knowledge and experience in real estate to sell our home. She and her team were excellent in guiding us through what we should do to have our home of 22 years ready for the market. Her suggestions and guidance helped our home sell quickly once we listed. She and her team helped us through the emotional time since we designed and built this home for our family as our “forever home”. We had several personal items and features built into our home that we were going to have to leave behind and pass on to new owners. Loretta took all this information and sold a home – not just a house. Thank you so much to Loretta and her team. We highly respect and recommend her for whatever your need may be in real estate – listing or buying!

Loretta was absolutely Awesome to Work with. Very Professional. Made us feel like we were the highest priority client she had. She showed for every event that took place in the sell of our home. Professional Photography was used to photograph our home. Outstanding service in every aspect. Home sold in less than 5 days after listing.

Loretta Maimone at ERA Grizzard Real Estate in Mount Dora handled the entire process of selling our home from listing to closing with utmost professionalism. Her thorough knowledge of the local market was invaluable in helping us set the listing price and time the listing. The extensive pictures and video that Loretta arranged to showcase our home were fabulous and the open-house events were very well attended. Loretta's team of associates became deeply involved in coordinating everything from the photo-shoots to the showings and handling all of the details necessary to make the closing go smoothly. Throughout the whole process we felt confident that, if there was any bump in the road, Loretta and her team would handle it. We feel lucky that we had Loretta Maimone and her team working for us to sell our home.

The “one to get it done” is so true! From the start, Loretta and her team were awesome. Her extensive knowledge of the area market set the best price. Then the team went to work - showcasing my home in beautifully done pictures and video. Every detail during the process was handled professionally and timely. Any bumps in the road were immediately smoothed out by Loretta. Communication with the entire team was great. They were all responsive and personable. During our first meeting Loretta really listened to what my goals were in selling my home. I was downsizing in preparation for retirement. She heard me. Not only was my home sold the first week for full price but she helped me find the perfect next place to call home. I will be forever gratefully for such a positive experience. If you are buying or selling - this is by far the best team you will ever have work for you!!

I have had the pleasure of working with Loretta many times in the past several years. She has given me good advice regarding any changes I need to make with any property to make them more appealing to prospective buyers. All of my transactions have been smooth and without issue. Loretta’s team is professional and always responds to me in a timely manner; and I would not use any other realtor as she is the best in the business!
