Renee Butler and her entire team could not have been more professional and helpful. We were relocating and had zero knowledge about our new location. Renee personally made sure to help us find the perfect home in the perfect location. We feel they went above and beyond the typical real estate agent.The entire team was pleasure to work with. I highly recommend The Butler Team!

WE HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH RENEE AND HER TEAM. NOT ONLY ARE THEY KNOWLEDGEABLE, HELPFUL AND INFORMATIVE, THE ENTIRE TEAM GIVES BACK TO THE COMMUNITY. ONE EXAMPLE IS AT CHRISTMAS SHE HAS A PARTY WHERE SHE DONATES NOT ONLY HER TIME, MONEY, GIFTS AND FOOD FOR CLIENTS AT NO CHARGE. I KNOW OF NO OTHER REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL THAT OFFERS THAT. WE FEEL THAT SHE CONSTANTLY LOOKS OUT FOR OUR BEST INTEREST. RENEE WILL TELL YOU THE TRUE VALUE OF YOU PROPERTY, NOT WHAT YOU NECESSARILY WANT TO HEAR. IN OUR OPINION, THAT IS A TRUE PROFESSIONAL.

I first called to just see about selling my house. I didn't know it would be the market within a week. At first the showing took off then went down. I talk about my struggles I was having. Renee understood and quickly went to action and after my call just 2 days later I had an offer on the table. It has only been 4 months. I am more than satisfied in Renee and her team.

My husband and I are so thankful we used The Butler Team, especially John Butler as our realtor. He sold our home in one month and scheduled everything perfectly for the purchase of our current dream home. We could not be any happier with the communication and professionalism John provided. We highly recommend him and we will use him again in the future.

I bought a house from them 5 years ago. The experience was wonderful. We had some unforeseen hurdles that would have made most people give up and walk away but the Butler team really came through in a big way more than once. There were issues with the AC unit that needed to be fixed more than once and they took care of everything making sure it was in working order. Then there was a HUGE issue with the title company and financing the night before the closing (that had nothing to do with my credit). We had to find a new title company and financing immediately. The Butler team took over and worked their magic and were able to get things moving again in no time. I am certain they had to move mountains to make it happen so quickly. This was not their problem and they didn't have to step up the way they did, but they did and everything worked out beautifully. I am so grateful for everything they did going far above and beyond to make sure we got into our new home and just in time for the holidays too. Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
We listed our home in Winter Haven, FL in March 2013. With home sales in a slump, it did not sell, so we took it off of the market in June of 2014. During the time it was on the market, Renee stayed in touch, but never encouraged us to put money into the house that we would never get back. We appreciated the fact that she was up front with us, so much that when we again listed our house in September 2014, we called Renee. The house sold in 10 days for what we considered a fair price. We are now living in Frisco, TX, but would recommend The Butler Team to anyone selling their home in Central Florida. Less ... More

During the process of selling our house I was in the hospital, Renee herself came to me with the papers to sign. She and her son both went out of their way to help us through the process. I would highly recomend the butler team.

We have purchased two homes from the Renee Butler Team. The first one was several years ago and the lady that sold us that one is no longer there. I can't remember her name, however she provided us with excellent service finding us just the right home we were looking for. Everything was handled in a professional manner with no problems for us. The second home we purchased from Julius Windham again with excellent service and hassle free. Julius is currently looking for another home for us. We have purchased in the past from other relators and had many problems because of people that were not properly trained. We love the Renee Butler team and will continue using them for all our future purchases. Thank you for your excellent service, and thanks for the wonderful client appreciation day. We had a great time. Richard and Pat Banks Less ... More

Our family recently purchased a home using the Butler team. Everyone on the team was extremely nice and they went out of their way to accommodate our needs. Renee even worked with us during the holidays. While we were house hunting, Renee took us to various schools in the area to assist our daughters in finding a college. When she found out our daughters were looking for employment, she offered to drive us to different businesses in the area so they could apply. Renee so impressed our youngest daughter, she was referred to as the ?Bomb.Com!? Renee and her team went out of their way to make celebrating birthdays in a hotel a memorable event. The Butler team is truly a full service business. We highly recommend Renee and her team to anyone looking for a home and if we are in a position to sell our home in the future, we would be honored to work with the Butler team again. Less ... More

Through the sale and purchase of 5 homes in the last 12 years we have used and recommended The Butler Team for the last 4. It's not through bad experience we switched over to The Butler Team, but simply through superior knowledge, willingness to go the extra miler, and most importantly, customer service. Offering the lowest price sometimes means getting service worth the cost. From restaurants, government, and retail grocery, customer service is where it counts. Publix's business model has always centered on it. The Butler Team focuses on it and it earns repeat business. Karel Cain with the Butler Team has always been the most professional and personal of agents. I have and will always recommend Karel and Renee Butler EVERY TIME. Sincerely, Jennifer Shin Less ...

The Renee Butler Team isn?t just a real estate company. It?s an experience. When my husband and I were looking for a realtor to sell our home, we were told that Renee Butler was the best in town. We decided to give her a try because we hold a high standard for customer service and convenience, and are quick to go in another direction if those two things are not provided. Selling and buying a home is a very stressful experience. Renee and her team managed to minimize that stress to almost zero. From the moment you walk into the company, you are greeted with a smile, bottle of water, and asked if there is anything else that can be done to make you more comfortable. That same experience was carried out through the entire process of not only selling the home we were in, but when we chose to buy our new home as well. Renee Butler and her team made my husband and I feel like we came first to her company and were the most important clients she had. When we spent time with her or spoke with anyone on her team, we never felt rushed. We always felt comfortable and free to express our wishes and concerns. Not only is the Renee Butler Team prompt in response to any requests or concerns, they also follow through, and go out of their way to get the best deal for their clients. One thing that Renee did for us was negotiate a buying contract for repairs to a home that we were interested in. My husband and I never asked Renee to do so, but she wanted the best for us and took initiative to give us the best experience we could have ever asked for. Renee was honest about the houses we were looking to buy and whether she felt they were good investments, but at the same time she was able to be happy for us when we were excited about certain properties. She talked to us about the things we wanted in a house, and when we began to stray outside of that, she would politely remind us of those things we were really looking for. For example, my husband and I work a lot and when we are not working we are traveling. Because of that, we didn?t want anything that had major yard maintenance. To us a ΒΌ acre is too much yard work. So when we began looking at properties outside of that idea, she would say, ?Remember what you told me you both wanted and why?? I really appreciated that because often times, people know what they are looking for, but by the time it is said and done, they wind up purchasing something that wasn?t even close to the house they really wanted. My husband and I purchased exactly what we wanted and had all of our wishes granted thanks to Renee and her Team. I could continue to go on and on about how amazing the Renee Butler Team is, but that would require at least four more pages of writing. I can say confidently that I will never use another realtor as long as Renee is in business, and I will always cherish the effort and love she put into giving us a wonderful experience in both selling our home and purchasing a new one.

I worked with Renee' Butler for numerous years as a title searcher for Lawyers Title Insurance Corporation. She was always professional, pleasant and easy to work with. She maintains an excellent reputation as a realtor, but she is so much more. I put my house on the market for sale in July of 2011, during which time the market was very slow and other houses on my block had been available for years. I listened to Renee's advise and my house sold in one week. The first people who looked at it were the ones who bought it. Renee' and her staff were amazing, they took care of everything, always keeping me informed, prompt and friendly. Selling my house of 17 years was so easy, I could not believe it. I always recommend her, and she has helped many of my friends buy and sell property. Less ... More

House sold in less then a week, Renee knew the value of the home to price it correctly. She price house for more then we thought it was worth. Had a showing 2 hours after meeting with Renee. As she explain she has a network of buyers looking for homes. Picture's of home very well done, Explain what to expect and how to get home ready to show. Stood her ground once offers came in on a fair value for the home. More then we expected and I have sold 5 homes in the past 25 years.

I was transferring from Hawaii to Florida; I had seen the property online and had my son go look at it. He told me it was worth putting an offer in on the house and it went great from there. Sunny Fullhart was professional, very helpful, and resourceful. She was always available for me if I had questions. The transition was very smooth. I arrived back in Florida on May 18th, 2014 and went to settlement on May 19th. I couldn't have been more pleased. The small touches she did to welcome me into the neighborhood are unbeatable!!

We would definitely recommend The Butler Team. We originally tried to sell our home "by owner", but we had our buyers back out. Luckily, we listed it our home with Renee Butler, and we sold it in no time at an even higher price. We were extremely pleased with the great help and service we got from her. There were so many little touches that made it a good experience then, like providing a company moving van, and other things that even continue today, like the yearly Christmas cards and customer appreciation events.

Renee and her team created an absolutely wonderful buying experience for my fiance and I. We relocated to Winter Haven in 2012 and after our first purchased home didn?t appraise, we found ourselves without a place to stay, 5 days before our move date. Renee immediately offered for us to stay in her extra condo on a golf course while we continued to look. We were able to find something the first weekend we were down there, thanks to Renee and her unique ability to know her clientele and what they want. Renee was able to negotiate not only a fair price, but also a very short closing date so that we didn?t have to spend more time in temporary housing and with all of our stuff in storage. Renee has excellent referrals for almost anything you need, and all delivered excellent service, just like Renee and her team. Her team was very diligent and organized through the entire process and we couldn?t have asked for a better buying experience. We found out 8 months later that we were relocating out of Winter Haven, so we contacted Renee right away. She was able to sell our house in less than 24 hours on the market, coming in with an offer that met our asking price. When you work with Renee, you are part of her family. She will work harder for you and your family than anyone you will meet. Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
I emailed the Butler Group and when no one returned my email after over six hours, I thought I should call. I called over twenty-four hours ago. There was no one available to discuss the property I was interested in. So I specifically asked for Karel that was mentioned in one of the other reviews. The receptionist said she would ensure that Karel received the message just as soon as she was finished with her other client. She also told me that she would make sure that she knew that I was very anxious about seeing the house. STILL NADA! How unprofessional is that? I'm not a happy camper. Less ... More

We liked that The Butler Team kept in contact with us throughout the process. We are from out of state so finding financing on our own was not working. The Butler Team put us in contact with several banks, one of which ended up financing our winter home. We would recommend others to use Renee and her team for buying a home.
