None. We connected, but it did not work out.
Took weeks to respond, by email. Once responded didn't hear from again for many weeks. Would never work with this company. Obviously they don't need to make a sale.

Helped me find a home to rent
I rent a house with Watson although they do not own the property. I cannot comment on the entire company but my local office managed by Laura Vogel has been fantastic. I was previously renting an apartment from what seemed to be an office of children and I left purely because of the staff. Working with Laura and her team has been great. The only thing that bothers me (and I don't know how much Watson had to do with it) is the pricing. I am renting a 3b/2bath house for $1475/month and I found the exact same house in the same neighborhood up for rent at $1250/month. Less ... More

Helped me find tenant for rental
Exceeded my expectations. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy, sell or even rent. There rental program is fabulous. they find rental homes and those looking to rent. They find credible, reliable renters for your rental property.

I think, agent did not value our business, or misjudged that we were not serious buyers. She cancelled us at last minute, saying she got another client to work with. Very unprofessional behavior!

We used Inga Nelson, and we were very impressed. She was very helpful. This was a great buying experience. This was the third home I have bought, so have dealt with several agents. I would use Watson Realty and Inga again.

They didn't want to show us the home we requested in stead tried to sell us on other homes in the area. We're helpfull in all other areas of the home buying process. It was just seemed as if they already had homes picked out for us before we got there and those were all they wanted to show us with no real explination why.

I've reached out to the active realtor of a specific property...during several attempts, and never received a reply. I understand why now, that this particular property has not been sold as of yet...it's still an active listing.

I had to call multiple times before anyone called me back. They are quicker with e-mail. This does not mean someone gets back to you in 24 hours. They behave as though they don't need the business!

I have contacted Watson sevral times about differnt land and homes for sale in our area. They take days to reply back and don't seem to know about the property they listed or care to sell it...very disturbing when you find a home you really like. Also, they list their properties way too high in comparison to it's actual worth. Homes stay for sale by them for a very long time

Absolutely the MOST HORRID customer service. From the realtor to the Regional Vice President. Excuses, Excuses, Excuses..... Terrible communication - this is not a "partnership" it is about getting as many "sales" as possible. And when I tell you no one cares - no one cares. From the beginning, realtor overpriced my house and said it would sell in "5-6 days" - yes days. It took 6 months, 2 price reductions and a new Watson realtor and we are still not closed. Then when an offer did come in, the realtor didn't even bother to review the contract with me - just emailed and done. The closing has been delayed numerous times - I assure you, several of the delays could have been avoided had the realtor been proactive instead of doing everything last minute. The regional vice president stated over and over in my conversation with him, "We try to train", "Not to make excuses", "I'm just coming into this now", etc. etc. etc. Final point of the discussion with him "We failed you and didn't do a great job" - so basically "too bad, too sad". STAY AWAY - seriously. I often read reviews and wonder why a person advised it and if I should really believe it or not. Try to trust me on this - the worst realty company that I have ever worked with. It is not worth the aggrevation - go somewhere else !! Less ... More

The agent was not very responsive. I was interested in buying a house (with cash) and the agent hardly gave me the time of day when I called about his listing. It took him several days to call me and then he cut me off and never called back again. Very rude.

This was a "Short Sale" and still has not closed, but has been approved by the lender and we expect to close within the next 8 days before the end of the year. The Watson Agent was knowledgeable of short sales and provided information and responded to all questions that I had. We have worked this "together" as time has gone there have been additional questions and all have been answered well. I did my research on the internet and she provided anything that I missed. So I would and do recommend Watson Reality and especially the Agent that I used. Less ... More

The agent was very attentive....which was necessary as we bought the house sight unseen. She was very helpful.........as was the office in general when I asked for contractor names to interview for possible work on the same house. Each person I had contact with at Watson was very professional.

I have yet to puchase a home in Florida but The Watson group is keeping me informed and is ready to help me when the time is right to relocate. They have sent me numerous homes to look at that may be exactly what I am looking for. I have spoken to and discussed my needs with a Watson professional and was also quite impressed with their asking if they could assist me in any way with selling my home in CT! I am going to be moving to FL within the next year and they are the group I will be dealing with. Less ... More

After a poor experience with our 1st online realty contact (we were told he couldn't help us & he did not refer others!) we were totally impressed with Watson Realty when looking at the possibility of moving to northern Florida. Within an hour of our 1st online contact I received an email outlining that agent Jesse Whitfield would be helping us and when to expect to hear from him. Jesse was amazing! We have postponed our move, so did not need negotiation services. Watson is the #1 realty we will go to when we're ready to move! Less ... More

The Watson group did their very best to assist me in my search for a home. I was a special situation and could not find financing for my condo but the Watson office were very good at following up with me by referring me to someone who might be able to help. I am most grateful for the time they spent on me even though I could not purchase the home.

Well I never could get the agent to show me the property. I went out twice at her recommendation and could never locate the property. There was no Watson Realty sign. I then contacted the agent to let her know that once again I could not find the property could she please meet me there? She was never available on Sundays???? This is the only day that I am available due to my work schedule. You would think they would be available to show properties on Sunday. I have never heard from her since I ask her to meet me there on Sunday. Less ... More

We worked with Clair Corbett and her partner, Dave. Both were very professional but also very nice. They dropped everything more than once to accommodate my wife and helped us with the sale of our old home even though it was sold by us to an acquaintance. Being self employed, I had problems getting a mortgage. Clair arranged a meeting with the Watson realty mortgage group and made the whole process much easier. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a home in the Jacksonville area

Since 1988, I have bought and sold homes in a several states. I have never had such poor service in selling a home as I did with Watson Realty of Gainesville. The lack of communication would have been laughable had I not needed to sell the property so badly. I would have switched to a different realtor company had I not been in the middle of a potential buyer contract, before I knew how bad a service I was going to receive from Watson Realty. The problems: 1) rarely, would the agent respond to my few queries made by email or phone. 2) There were virtually no updates provided by the agent. What updates where given amounted to nothing. 3) Lastly, the buyer agent just took control of the transaction, while my agent from Watson Realty did little to nothing. I would not, could not recommend Watson Realty. Less ... More

Be careful that your Watson realtor is protecting your interests rather than her own. In order to make sure the sale went through, my realtor sided with the seller's realtor and disputed the amount of the appraisal, indicating it was low. Unfortunately this did not assist in my negotiations to buy the home.

Helped me find a home to rent
During my first year of leasing with Watson, my property manager named Burt Briel would not return my calls-ever. She only contacted me by email after I called her for any problems. My #1 complaint is lack of communication. Example: The air conditioner hadn't been serviced since 2009 and it is now 2012. The homeowner and Burt Briel came to my home on 5/15/12 and told me that it would be done. Requesting that I remind Burt Briel the next day to have the job done, she emailed me back the following day stating that unless I signed a new lease, she wouldn't have it done. And if I wouldn't sign the contract, to place and window unit in my $1020/mth rental home. Also any major appliance that broke, I was instructed I had to pay $100 cash to Burt Briel in order to have maintenance done at all. I left messages with Corporate about Burt Briel asking them not to disclose my identity to find out my rights and instead of them returning my call, they had Burt Briel herself call my home and threaten me by saying, "It's your word against mine." My husband is in the military and is often on maneuvers. I have been bullied and lied to for an entire year by this company and do not recommend anyone to trust this company what so ever. Less ...
