Customer Testimonials: Opinions That Matter

With John Ferguson and My Florida Escape, service and reliability comes first, last and always. If my customers are happy, we’re happy.

Here’s what some of our clients are saying about my service and expertise:

“John Ferguson did an outstanding job in helping us find the perfect home.  He was not only extremely knowledgeable of the area, but in tune with our needs as first-time home buyers.  He was always readily available; and was diligent, patient and informative throughout the process.  He worked tirelessly to ensure we found a home that met our needs, within our budget. I highly recommend John, and will definitely use him in the future.” David M. St. Petersburg FL

“We considered it a pleasure to work with John Ferguson in the selling of our home.  He was professional, always kept us informed and was very proactive in showing our home. We would highly recommend him to anyone selling or looking for a home.” L. and J. C. Saint Petersburg FL

“John was very impressive. From finding the right price to offer the property at to figuring out the few little things that improved the showing to finding buyers. He comes off as very credible, earnest and knowledgeable person which is key in dealing with clients and trying to get top dollar for your property. He took care of many details which made this remote transaction run smoothly. But most of all he got results. He listed at a price we both agreed was aggressive and then brought in a buyer at full asking price. He worked with the appraiser to ensure awareness of appropriate comparable sales, was involved in accessing the buyers financials and took care of every interaction with the title company. Really what more could you ask?” S.E. New York, NY 

“John was so diligent in finding us our perfect home. Being new to the area, he continually searched for the criteria we were looking for and through showing us numerous homes in many different areas, narrowed it down to exactly what and where we wanted. Through his diligent searches, he found us the perfect home within hours of it being listed. His expertise in the negotiation process and his good relationship with the other realtors within the community, he saved is a considerable amount of money on the sales price. I couldn’t have asked for a better home buying experience and would highly recommend John to anyone looking to purchase a home.”  M.H. Saint Petersburg FL

“John helped me sell a house as part of settling a somewhat complicated estate. John was patient with me, the lawyers, and court system; getting contracts signed and returned from out of state; soothing nerves; and calming frustrations. I trust him implicitly. I have recommended him to others and will continue to do so.”  T.S. Palm Harbor FL 

“It was a pleasure working with John. His intimate knowledge of the area along with his understanding of our needs and quick and precise follow up made our finding the perfect home, at the price we wanted, a reality. We recommend John 100% and will without a doubt use his services if we decide to move again.”  D.H. St. Petersburg FL 

“Extensive local knowledge coupled with excellent personal service makes John Ferguson the right choice in any real estate transaction, whether buying or selling.”  P.K. St. Petersburg FL 

“Our journey with John started when we were vacationing here from Virginia two years ago in St. Pete Beach. We drove through the Broadwater neighborhood and saw a listing that John had. We contacted the listing, listened to the details, and hang up the phone. The phone begins to ring and it is John Ferguson with Remax Metro. That is how we discovered this magnificent real estate agent. John has been invaluable in guiding us through not one but three contracts and finally sealing the deal. He has an abundant of knowledge with the foreclosure process as well as a short sale. John was top notch with knowing the local market as well as comparable’s. Although the processes such as writing the contracts, inspections, and negotiations were all very stressful for us John was always there to reassure us that everything would work out. John reached out and introduced us to the community making our adjustment to this new area seamless. John also did not stop at being a real estate agent, but also provided numerous contacts and referrals to doctors, veterinarians, hospitals, electrician’s, and contractors. John far exceeded our expectations and it is with great pleasure that we can speak so highly of him, and would not hesitate to recommend him.”  L.S. and T.S. St. Petersburg FL

“We chose John Ferguson to be our real estate agent when we decided to sell our St. Petersburg home. We had a waterfront home in Broadwater which we had updated recently, but a few projects remained. We asked John’s advice regarding appropriate improvements to make before we put the home on the market.
Many people resist putting resources into a house only to turn around and sell it, but John felt that we would make it up in price. As it turned out, he was correct. The house looked terrific when we put it up for sale, and we began receiving offers within the first week.
John helped us through offers and negotiations, and in the end, we were very happy with the price we received. The closing went smoothly and was even finished early. We absolutely recommend John to assist you with your real estate needs.” Helmar and Joan S

“Thank you for the fantastic job you did helping us find our home. As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and concerns. We appreciate how available and patient you were throughout the entire process. Your experience was invaluable as you pointed out all the many things to consider when evaluating houses, negotiating with the seller, financing, and closing. You were there at every step, and we could not be happier with our purchase and the experience working with you. You will be the first person we call when we look to purchase another property or sell our home.” Kevin and Kristin H

“John provided an exceptional level of expertise in selling my home. He demonstrated professionalism in all aspects of the sale. John has the upmost integrity and ethics as an agent. I highly recommend John as he was exceptional in all phases of the sale; preparing the house for the market, pricing, listing, and selling. I would not hesitate to use John in the future and highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell their home.” Glen W.
