We had a wonderful experience working with Gina Kalil. She did a tremendous job of lining up homes for us to see and working around a busy schedule. Gina dedicated tons of time to help us find our dream home after a long search. She represented us extremely well in all of our negotiations and conveyed are position in a polite and firm manner. She was a pleasure to work with and we recommend her to any friends or family that are interested in buying or selling their home.

As a third time home buyer, I began my search thinking I didn’t need to be represented by a Realtor, that I could “Do it myself”. I quickly realized that I needed much more than both as I was in the midst of a frenzied seller’s market, with low inventory, multiple offers, and seller’s agents that wouldn’t even return my phone calls. I was becoming increasingly frustrated and discouraged. And then I met Eric White who is a Certified Expert Advisor! In the midst of this frenzied, chaotic seller’s market, Eric never wavered, and never flinched. Although Eric represents clients that are buying and selling multi-million dollar homes, he gave me the same care and attention, even though I was looking for a very modestly priced home. Eric’s Smart Home Buying Strategy, tenacity, superior negotiating skills, and knowledge, resulted in us finding a home that suited my needs very well. I don’t know how he did it, but we were actually able to get the seller to accept an offer below list price…when other homes were selling above list price with multiple offers! Amazing! But it didn’t stop there – Eric has assembled a “Dream Team” of mortgage, inspection, and insurance professionals that made the sales and closing process unbelievably smooth. As I mentioned previously, this was my third home purchase, and by far the smoothest! If you’re frustrated, confused, and tired of poor service from traditional Realtors, call Eric, a Certified Expert Advisor – Expect a completely different experience!

My wife and I decided to leave the Metro Miami - Dade area for the Sarasota area. When we came upon this decision, we started with several sub-areas in the greater Tampa Bay, primarily because my wife has family in the area. I reached out to several realtors that concentrate in the general area. Of all the realtors that seemed anxious to help, Eric White stood alone in providing us with the most tools for us to search and locate the proper house. Other realtors provided what they thought we might want but they didn’t know us and hence their listings were limited by the agents themselves. At the time Eric didn’t know us either but he didn’t allow that to limit his assistance. Every possible listing within our parameters came to us in real time. Because of the length of time our Miami sale took, our search evolved slightly. Eric noticed this evolution through the notes I sent on various listings. He was very quick to notice and respond to our requests, needs, and communications. He was very determined to assist us in finding our new home and moving us into the next phase of our lives. After driving 4 hours to the Sarasota area, Eric met with us to begin the actual work of looking at the houses we had focused on. Eric kept on point during a long and tedious weekend of searching. Unlike so many other realtors, he did not “shotgun” us with listings we would not be interested in that would waste our time and energy. He kept it a focused search. After choosing the house we desired, he honed our offering to begin negotiating on the property. His approach to the negotiations was to put all the elements on the table, time and money in the proper mix. This made us feel that we were not going to over pay for this or any other property. All the pieces started to come together under Eric’s direction and a team of resources he had assembled. He had our confidence and arranged for the general house and termite inspections, as well as all the details leading up to the closing. Eric made sure that every question was answered and every detail was attended to, smoothing every bump in the road. While busy with other clients and concerns, he made us feel like we were his most important clients. This is an important trait but seldom achieved. Eric succeeded where others fail. We would not hesitate to recommend Eric White to anyone including our closest friends and family.

I recently had the pleasure of using Gina Kalil as my Expert Advisor. Being relatively new to Florida I wasn't sure of the areas, and I had insisted on staying in Dunedin where I currently lived. Gina being the ultimate professional that she is, patiently took the time to get to know me and uncovered that what I really wanted was to be closer to the beach with a water view being an added bonus. Well, after spending a few weeks of looking up and down the coast she found me the condo of my dreams with a view of the Sunshine Skyway and water as far as I can see. Every person in the building is nicer than the next and it's the perfect location for me. Gina handled every issue that came at us with ease. It truly was the smoothest real estate transaction I've ever been involved with. She connected me to a mortgage broker, movers, insurance providers, handymen, home warranties....you name it, she made sure I got all the help I needed. I will always refer anyone looking to buy or sell to Gina.

As first time home buyers, my wife and I were apprehensive about buying a home. We knew absolutely NOTHING about the process, especially when using a VA loan. From day one, Eric was friendly and thorough in explaining the entire process using his Smart Buyer Strategy. I am active duty military living out of area and he always made himself available responding in a timely manner. We never felt pressure and he listened to our feedback to incorporate into our daily property search which led us in finding an amazing first home. He worked with us to make sure we closed in a designated time frame. We utilized Eric’s team of service professionals; from his lender who saved us $1,000’s on closing costs and interest, to the best rates on insurance, and his inspectors that gave us the confidence that the property was in good sound condition. They were extremely professional, polite, and gave us the piece of mind we needed to move forward. Assembling this team was extremely convenient and saved us a ton of time and money. We would absolutely recommend Eric White to anyone looking to buy a home. His professionalism, diligence and excellent communication skills, make him a great professional anyone would be pleased to work with. Eric actually made the process fun!

From the moment I met Gina I knew she was a true professional. She gave me a lot of great ideas on how to sell my home. This was my first time selling a house and Gina helped answer any questions I had. She has a vast knowledge of the local real estate market and made herself available any time I needed her. Her guidance in the whole process put me at ease. She helped me negotiate a contract that I was very happy with. My family truly appreciated all the hard work she put in. She is a great realtor and put my mind at ease every time I talked things over with her. I really needed a person I could trust to help me with this responsibility and I am so glad I chose Gina!
