Helped me buy home
I was contacted by a Realtor from Manausa when I signed up to use the web-sight. A friend had recommended the sight to me because it was very accurate, and up to date. I was contacted immediately by a Realtor named Andrea Chapman. Andrea, was very well versed in the process of home buying. Overall I'd say the process went smoothly. It was my first time buying a house (as I was often reminded), but I'd definitely recommend this company to others. If you have a VA loan they know what they are doing, and they were very veteran friendly. Closing went smoothly though it had been delayed a couple of times I feel like they were on top of everything. It also helped because Joe Manausa's brother is the real estate attorney and the closing happens at his law firm. Everything at the firm went smoothly and was explained very clearly. For my first experience buying a home I'd give them an A-. They spelled out things very clearly and helped us feel at ease. Less ... More

I worked with Alex Nunez at Joe Manausa's office. I would highly recommend Alex. He is very professional in every way. His recommendations were well thought out and I feel his expertise in the real estate market helped guide me as I made the decision to sell my house. I have no regrets.

Incredible agency!!! I used Kevin Milligan to help my family relocate to Tallahassee and could not possibly be happier with the extremely high level of service, ability to negotiate, and attention to detail. Unfortunately, we found a house that had a lazy listing agent and I needed to move quickly. Kevin and his team took on the challenge and we closed in less than 3 weeks, including having the seller install a new roof!!! These guys are an A+ organization thatbjustbsinplybget the job done and it's done right! I would HIGHLY recommend using them. Less ... More

Joe Manausa Real Estate was awesome in finding my new home and they made the closing flawless. My realtor, Kevin Milligan did a fantastic job in finding a home that I was looking for. He was available whenever I had questions or when I found a property that I wanted to look at. Once Kevin knew the requirements I wanted in a house; he was very aggressive in looking and locating properties for me to look at. I am very happy with the house that I purchased and the support that Kevin and Joe Manausa gave me. Less ... More

I worked with Alex Nunez out of Manausa Realty and I cannot recommend him more highly. I'm a 25 year old first time home buyer who knew nothing beyond what my parents knew. The first time I met with Alex we sat down and he walked me through every step of what would be the process (including a helpful powerpoint) so I had an understanding of exactly what would be involved. SO HELPFUL! Once we started looking, he took into account everything I was looking for while giving recommendations on where to proceed. The house I ended up buying was one he let me know of via e-mail at 10:30pm on a Friday night because it had just come on the market and he wanted me to see it. 10:30pm on a Friday night is dedication. Once the process started moving forward he let me know step by step what was happening and answered every question I had while guiding me through the fun processes of negotiating with the seller, inspections, repairs, and every other little thing that needed to happen. He was always honest with me, never telling me just what I wanted to hear so he could make the sell (and he did it all while working around my work schedule). I never had to take off work except the day of the signing (I work 9-6 on weekdays). Alex, and Manausa Realty also had a plethora of resources for everything I needed including setting me up with an awesome lender (and great loan) and inspection services (I even got discounts because they work with Manausa so much). So if you are looking for an honest, resourceful, and all around great realtor, Alex Nunez is your guy! :) Less ... More

I used Manausa Realty to purchase my first home and not only did I pay top dollar, the work that was supposed to be completed prior to closing was not (after we were told that it was - thankfully the company doing the work was honest enough to come back out a month later) and after a "clean" WDO inspection from THEIR inspector, we discovered that the house was and had been infested with termites. Our realtor was only out for the commission and these people apparently will do and say anything to get the house sold. We do not recommend them. Less ... More
Response fromJoe Manausa, MBA
Our team at JMRE takes great pride in providing our customers with unsurpassed customer service from start to finish. It is unfortunate that this particular buyer is unhappy with her experience; especially after all of the over-time work our staff did to get her into her new home before Christmas. At the buyer?s final walk-through and again at the closing, this buyer was HAPPY to be moving into an outstanding home, below market value, in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Tallahassee. Again, we are very disappointed with this customer?s displeasure in the level of service our team provided to her. It is JMRE?s #1 priority to make certain our customers are receiving 5-star level service, every single time. Please refer to our other reviews as a true indicator of the service we offer our valued customers. Less ... More

Jay was very patient with us during the 7 months it took us to complete our relocation here from Georgia. He also found a myriad of houses for us to view even as our " must haves" changed. I also enjoyed Joe's newsletter which was truly informative.

Kevin was amazing . . . even working through my difficult changes in the contract and financing . . . and he got it done in short order with no missteps. My disaster should have cost two weeks or more (Or losing my opportunity to purchase this home) but he and the mortgage company kept the delay to only two days. He was amazing and was attentive not only to me, the buyer, but also considerate of the sellers needs. Everyone was pleased. Kevin is the kind of guy you want to have as a friend . . . :) Less ...

Jasmine McIntyre was fantastic - beyond extra mile - and the firm offered support for questions I had relative to overall issues. First class organization. As a side note my son, Winston III - who will be living in the condo while at FSU, was a friend of Joe's daughter at Leon before moving to Monticello.

Kevin and the rest of the team at Manausa was wondeful during the whole process -from being very informative on the process up front, to being very patient and perceptive to our desires, to negotiating us a great deal on our home. We had quite a few road bumps during the process due to our lender/insurance/inspection process that the team managed to pull us through, even after we had long thought we had lost the deal. If it wasn't for Kevin, we'd have long ago given up and would not have our new home! Thanks so much guys! Less ... More

Joe manausa is a great company to use from start to finish. All their employees are actively involved when needed to help with certain areas. Our agent, Kevin Milligan, was a friggin' rockstar. He was always there when we needed to contact him and he was always actively looking for us. He knew right after our first meeting what we were looking for and was on point from day one. At some point we looked at 3-4 houses a day and Kevin took our no's to houses and moved on to the next one. Funny story, the house we bought was the very first house we looked at (which we were unsure because we loved it but it was the first house we saw). 2 months later it came back on the market after falling through in a deal. Kevin showed us the house again, he had a feeling it was meant to be and guess what? We bought it! Even after we bought it he helped with small things around the house and waited around to help me light the pilot light! From beginning to end, he was there. If you are looking for a hard worker and somebody who will find that forever home, he is your guy. Less ... More

I want to acknowledge the exceptional service that Jasmine gave during the process of purchasing my townhome. She was able to find and negotiate a home that was in was my price range. Her skills and knowledge in finding the right financial institution, housing inspector and my home owner insurance was invaluable to saving me money overall.

We could not be happier with the service provided by Manausa Real Estate. From the first minute we stepped in the door to meet with Michelle Manausa, we felt taken care of and valued. We instantly felt confident she was going to help us find our dream home. Buying a home can be daunting, but having Michelle with us every step of the way was a great comfort. We knew we were getting an expert in the field who not only understood the market and the process, but who was also able to quickly identify the key priorities we were looking for in a home. She took the time to get to know us and always responded promptly and enthusiastically (even when we would send endless emails!). We are so grateful for all of Manausa's help and could not be happier with the process and the end result. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants personalized service from professionals who care not just that you find a house, but that you find the perfect house for your family. Less ... More

Thank you again for the well wishes in regard to our home purchase. The process of filing paperwork and completion of the closing was very professional. In regard to our realtor Ms Jasmine McIntyre we cannot say enough about her professionalism, kindness, sincerity and just an all, around good person. When we spoke to Ms Jasmine she provided us with the right homes to view and when we found our home she stayed with us and provided us with various vendors needed to complete our home requests. Ms Jasmine is a wonderful person and in our opinion went beyond the realms of "just" a realtor. Ms Jasmine is a true angel on earth. Less ... More

Joe sold our home in 3 weeks! Before placing it on the market, he sat down with us and discussed our pricing options based on when we wanted our home to sell. We were impressed with the professional quality photos he took, and especially his use of a drone to get aeriel shots of our home. Because our home sold quickly, we were able to purchase our dream home. We felt comfortable with the negotiation process and every detail was taken care of. A few questionable items popped up on the inspection and Joe made sure to investigate our concerns. Our home buying process was about as non-stressful as it could have been. We LOVE our new home! I highly recommend working with Joe if you need to buy OR sell a home! His market knowledge allowed us to feel confident about our decisions to buy and sell. Less ... More

My husband & I were extremely pleased with Jason Madsen's performance. We greatly appreciated his flexibility with scheduling and his eagerness to find us the home we were looking for. Jason went above and beyond to meet our needs and even reached out to people in North Carolina to ensure that our home there successfully closed on time. Again, we have nothing but good things to say about Jason Madsen. We will definitely recommend his services to family and friends.

When I needed a Tallahassee real estate company to sell a home in Tallahassee, I immediately thought of Century 21 and Joe Manausa. My home was listed for sale on their website and was sold during a time where a lot more homes failed to sell than actually sold. I am free of my house and mortgage and strongly recommend Century 21 First Realty to anybody who wants to sell a home in Tallahassee, or buy a home in Tallahassee.

This is the way to sell a home today. All I can say is Joe Manausa told me our home would sell in 4 to 14 days, and boy was he right. More than 20 people looked at our home in the first week, it?s like everything we heard about it not being a seller?s market just wasn?t true. If I ever have to sell another home, it will be with Century 21 in Tallahassee.

When I decided to retire in the fall of 2010, my wife asked that we move from Tallahassee to Alabama to be close to her family including 2 of our grandchildren. This at a time when real estate values were in a rapid decline. Following the information found in Joe's newsletter and after discussing the sales potential of our home with him, we took his advice re the preparation of our home. .We, as most sellers, felt our home was worth a good bit more than research of the market conditions indicated but we settled on an asking price we felt was fair. The response was immediate. Within 3 hours of the entry into the MLS we had an appointment for a buyer to look at the house and an offer later that same day. There was a slight counter which was accepted and we closed in 6 weeks. If we had not talked with Joe or applied his suggestions I am sure we would have overpriced the house and who knows when or if we would have found a buyer. Thank you Joe for making this such a smooth transactiion. Less ... More

In 1996, a career change required that I relocate my family from Tallahassee to Ohio on short notice. At that time, the Tallahassee real estate market was slowing, and prices were falling. I attempted to market my house FSBO, an effort that resulted in inconvenience, window shoppers and lost time. I contacted Joe Manausa, who at the time was an up and coming leader in the Tallahassee real estate business. Joe and his team met with me and my wife, explained their selling process, gave us a realistic evaluation of our property and what it would take to get the house sold quickly, and helped us establish a price. To our delight, we had a contract within a week. The buyers needed to sell their South Florida home before they could close. Joe's team arranged for a short term lease to the buyers that preserved the deal and permitted my family to move on. The process was effortless for us. Joe's team got the job done quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend Joe Manausa to anyone who needs to get a home sold. Less ... More

Joe was incredibly helpful during our search for and purchase of a home. He offered great guidance during our search, listening to what our "needs" and "wants" were and providing us with listings that he felt might be a good match. He also listened to our concerns and gave us honest feedback. When we had narrowed our choices down to 2 homes, he did not push us toward one or the other but gave us great advice that proved to be very helpful in making our choice. Joe knows this area very well, and knows real estate very well, and we always felt that he had only OUR best interest at heart. We ended up with the home of our dreams, and we truly believe that it is because of his expertise and guidance. We really enjoyed working with him and would highly recommend him. Less ... More
