My husband and I have bought and sold a few houses over the last couple of years. Jacquie Sosa is by far the best agent we have ever worked with. Her knowledge and experience was incredibly helpful. We don?t know how, but Jacquie has access to unlimited resources and can take care of just about anything. We would recommend Jacquie to all of our friends knowing that she will take great care of them as she did for us!

As a first-time home buyer, I was not sure what to expect when buying a house, but Jacquie Sosa walked me through the entire process. She even told me about special financing options I?d have as a first time buyer which I ended up taking advantage of. That saved me thousands of dollars and I?m extremely grateful Jacquie made me aware of that. I would highly recommend Jacquie to anyone who wants to buy a house.

Jacquie came highly recommended to us from a friend when we were relocating to Florida from the Northeast. When it finally came time for us to move, Jacquie lined up a couple of full days of house showings. After only a few showings, we found the house that possessed every quality we were looking for, including the beautiful screened pool and lanai that my family would enjoy! Within only hours, we were under contract for well below asking price...within the same weekend she lined up all of our house inspections...and we closed in 30 days! Jacquie remains committed to our family, as she continues to connect us with people in our new community and provides feedback on local businesses, activities for our children, etc. We would strongly encourage anyone who is looking for a real estate agent who is fully committed to her customers, highly knowledgeable about the market, and who executes flawlessly from the very beginning to contact Jacquie.

My husband and I interviewed other agents but when we met Jacquie and George we knew they were the right team for us because of their personality, knowledge and frankness. They wasted no time in helping us get our house ready and they even helped move around furniture in order to make our house look better. In four days we had a full price offer!!! They are truly a hard working team and I recommend their services.

It?s my pleasure to write this review about the service and professionalism Jacquie Sosa provides. We had our home on the market with a different agent for 6 months and when that contract expired we interviewed other agents. Jacquie?s knowledge of the market was apparent in our first meeting and we hired her to sell our home. The marketing was exceptional, from the photography to the description and in 6 days we were under contract for almost full price!! My husband and I couldn?t be happier with our choice and we highly recommend Jacquie to anyone! Less ... More

We owned a house in Orlando for several years. When it was time to sell it, we contacted George Philbeck. He is a dedicated, tenacious and honest realtor and gave us the best treatment, advice and guidance to sell our house quickly and pain-free. Our experience with George was a great one. If we still lived or had any property in Orlando, we would not hesitate to contact him to be our representative. If we had to score George from 1-10, with 10 being the best, without hesitation we would give him a 10. Masha and Jorge Ronay Less ... More

My wife Lisa and I contacted George to consider his services in selling our home in East Orlando. We were familiar with George?s name as we have seen many homes listed in Cypress Springs with George. Normally I would consider a few Real estate Agents prior to selecting an Agency, though after our initial meeting with George it was clear to us that he was the right person to sell our home. George walked us through the process and presented clear and objective information for us to consider in making the decision to sell our home. We were surprised to learn that George has an entire team to support the sales process and ensure every I is dotted and t is crossed. George guided us every step of the way and provided us with sound advice. The direction and advice we received allowed us to sell our home in a short period of time allowing us to truly purchase the home of our dreams. Through every turn and with each gate we needed to navigate through, George went out of his way to ensure that our family?s best interests were at the center of the transaction. George went above and beyond for our family and I know he will do the same for all of his clients. I will happily recommend George and his team to any of my friends, family and neighbors. After we decided to contract George and Keller Williams to sell our home, we learned that George was supported by an entire team. We worked with George and Cynthia for the search and purchase of our new home. We found both George and Cynthia to be knowledgeable of the market and the specific neighborhood we wanted to live in. Cynthia helped us wade through the many homes on the market until we found the home of our dreams. Both Cynthia and George assisted us in securing financing finding Inspection Services as well as ensuring our family?s best interests were always the center of the transaction. When the time came to close on our new home Cynthia was there by our side to ensure closing took place without a hitch. Cynthia and George greatly exceeded our expectations and I will happily recommend them to any of my friends, family and neighbors to purchase a new home. My wife and I tell Cynthia and George to pinch us because we cannot believe this new home is ours! Less ... More

George and Jacquie are amazing real estate professionals. My association with them is primarily with listings. They are extremely knowledgeable about what it takes to get a home sold. They know how to guide sellers into presenting their homes in the best manner for showings and work closely with them throughout the listings, monitoring traffic and other key aspects. They are also very personable and pleasant to deal with. You will be in good hands with either of them!

This recommendation is easy to write. Jacquie and George were amazing! From the first time we spoke to the very end they were nothing short of fantastic. We had to spend a little bit of time preparing and reorganizing our home before we listed it and Jacquie was wonderful and offering suggestions. The photography was amazing too, and we couldn't have been happier. We had our home on the market for just a couple of weeks and it was busy keeping up. I think we had seven people come look at our house in those two weeks. Unfortunately, our family situation caused to not sell however when the time comes we will absolutely be using you both. You got us an offer that we would've accepted and provided us with over-the-top service. If you're looking for professionals and results, we can't recommend them highly enough! Less ... More

George Philbeck is the most honest and ethical real estate agent I have ever had the privilege to work with, and I've worked with many over my years as a salesperson, an appraiser, and as a client. George always delivers as promised, can be trusted to provide mature, reasoned advice, treats clients and vendors fairly, and is a man of his word. When considering who to refer my family and friends to, I always think back to who I do business with and their level of integrity in their dealings with me. Using that criteria, George will always be the first name to immediately come to mind when real estate services are needed. I highly recommend him without reservation or condition. Less ... More

Not only did she sell my home, she also went above and beyond to make sure the buyer was completely satisfied and she personally took care of little things to ensure my house sold. Bottom line, Jacquie is the real deal and stands behind what she says. Thanks again Jacquie!

Thank you George, Jacquie, Jennifer and everyone! You were wonderful! My mother had a home to sell and as she is getting a little older and in need of assistance. I jumped in to help her find a real estate agent. I?ve spoken to a few agents and all seem to have a pretty good understanding of the market (I don?t live in Orlando so I don?t know it very well), however what separated George & Jacquie was their ability to communicate and to have a real strong knowledge I think of my mother?s house. George & Jacquie suggested a list price for the home which I thought was a little bit high based on what they showed me, however in 2 and a half weeks they had an offer that was more than acceptable. Once we were under contract Jennifer stepped in and she is simply put a pleasure to work with. She was supportive and communicative and constantly answering my questions and pacifying my concerns with my mother. George & Jacquie are lucky to have you Jennifer! Overall I was very pleased with the way the sale was handled and would recommend George & Jacquie and their team to anyone who requires great communication, attention to detail, and most of all genuine concern about your well-being and that of your family. Thank you again :-) Less ... More

Mr Philbeck helped me a great deal in explaining the market during my search for a home after graduating from College. Not only did he help me but he also helped my cousin Sarah actually buy her first home. As a young person I was surprised that the owner of the company would actually take the time to give me real estate advise. Although I never bought a home, I did learn enough to make a good choice and found a rental. He is a really nice person to help me.

George, and his team, are some of the most knowledgeable, courteous professionals I've ever had the great pleasure of working with - not only within the real estate industry, but within any industry! I was presented with a complete property sale package tailored specifically to me and to my property. Several well thought out sales strategies were provided, along with a discussion of the logical pros and cons of each. I felt informed, never once pressured, and selection of the sales strategy to be used was completely mine. It was quite evident that George and his team absolutely know current, local market conditions. To make a long story short, we had a full-price offer, with essentially negligible conditions, within approximately 36 hours of the property hitting the market! And the exemplary service didn't end there. Throughout the escrow process, George and his team were available to guide me when necessary, and not only answered any and all questions I had, but did so within a pleasingly expeditious time frame. Never once was I left "hanging." I could not possibly be any happier with my overall experience. I've already recommended George and his team to others, and I will most certainly continue doing so. As I contemplate a move back to the area, I already know who my real estate professional will be. Less ... More

First and foremost, I would like to thank everybody on the Philbeck team; George, Jennifer, Doug and the rest were all fantastic! I chose George because of his knowledge and professionalism at our initial meeting, and in hindsight, I'm glad I did! My home was placed on the market after they finished preparing and photographing it, and it looked amazing! Within a week we had multiple offers, and we chose the stronger of the 2 and my home sold without a hitch. Even more impressive was he and his entire team were able to move mountains and convince the buyers of my home to close earlier than expected to allow me to purchase my new home they found for me. I am so impressed with their service and follow-up even after we closed escrow on both homes! They are, simply put, an amazing group of people who genuinely care about my well-being. That level of service in today's age is a lost art and I am grateful to have found and chose to work with George and his team. Thank you again for all that you've done.

When considering selling my home, I wanted to ensure I could make the best decision to fit my needs. I was searching for someone who knew their market, was honest about the proposed selling price and provided a realistic turn around time. I also focused on marketing abilities and someone who could move inventory despite the uncertain news of the housing market. I interviewed four realtors and chose George Philbeck?s team. I chose them mainly because the presentation was thorough, honest and the expectations were laid out in a realistic manner. George?s team did everything they could up front to prepare my home for sale prior to listing. By the January listing date, we were ready to move forward with no delays. In what was rumored to be a dead month, I had 5 showings and an offer within weeks. I closed and moved before the end of March, which exceeded my expectations. George?s team was very patient with me from the beginning preparations through the closing date. They made sure I understood the process, included my input as the homeowner and assisted me every step of the way. Everything mentioned up front in that initial presentation was delivered. While moving can be difficult and exciting at the same time, I felt completely supported and informed throughout the process. I would gladly use George?s team again and would highly recommend them to others. Less ... More

George, you and the others have been great to work with. Answering questions (I know I ask a lot), offering suggestions and just living up to your promises. You?re a good friend, and I?m glad I called you.

You did not ask a lot of questions! Okay, maybe a couple of questions but they were all great one :-) I'm so glad you're happy and loving your new lifestyle. I'll see you at the gym tomorrow LOL

I needed to sell my home before buying a new one and I was concerned about the timing. The day we put the house on the market we had an accepted offer. George was able to negotiate a closing date that fit my timeline so I had enough time to find a new home. Jennifer was great, she stayed in touch with me to keep me updated and we hit it off just fine. I?m working with Doug to find my next home, it truly feels like the whole team is behind me! Thanks everyone, I have and will recommend all of my friends to George and his team. Less ... More

We really enjoyed working with George and his team. Tim was very knowledgeable and I was very stressed having to make the preparations to move by myself with my husband already moved to our new city. The marketing was great and they made sure to help me stage my home perfectly. Within 24 hours of listing the home we had 8 showings and 2 offers. My biggest fear was not selling our home in time to start my new job, but now I don?t know if I?ll have enough time to pack before closing! Thank you George, Tim and everyone else who made this a great experience. Less ... More

Where to start...George and his team have been fantastic. They are very responsive and never make you feel like you are a bother. I first tried FSBO but for personal reasons made the decision to list. My first realtor was strong ,but we were just not getting the showings. So I decided to take it off the market during the holidays. Then I get this flyer with George's advertisement on it...to say the least...it intriqued me...so I called. He came in with his new partner like a burst of energy and shared several different options for selling. One of his greatest attributes was the no pressure presentation and need to sign right then. After listening though...I decided to go with the 6 Week Plan Program...I have to admit...I thought the concept was out there ! George hit the road running his committment is to be commended..he was right there with the team making it happen and make it happen they did...SOLD IN 12 DAYS !!!! To George and Jennifer and all the team...thanks for your hard work. I would and have already recommended George to friends that may want to sell. Thanks again. Less ... More

My husband commented on this and I felt the need to add to it too. I really appreciate the service we received from George, Doug and the rest of the team at Philbeck Homes. They were all extremely helpful and communication was great. Even though we had to remove our home from the market for personal reasons, we still wanted to express our gratitude for the service they provided. Thank you!!

We listed our home with George and Doug and received outstanding service. We had many showings and received multiple offers. Unfortunately, our buyer?s financing fell through and we had to cancel our listing after that happened due to a personal situation. George and Doug were great, did not make us feel guilty about withdrawing the listing and did not charge us any cancellation fees. When we are ready to list again, our first phone call will be to George and Doug.

I have known George Philbeck and Doug Rudnick for more than 7 years. When I decided to purchase an investment property I called on them to assist me. They helped me find the perfect income property. When it came time for me to sell it was only natural for me to call on George and Doug. I now have a wonderful family under contract for my home and I cannot thank them enough for their expertise and professionalism. There is no question that I would highly recommend them to anyone with a real estate need. Thanks again George and Doug. Less ... More

We purchased the townhome for our children going to school, and a few years back were planning on selling. George advised us to rent for a year or two to allow the recovery to happen, and I?m grateful that we listened. Not only did he help us secure and screen the tenants, but when the time came, advised us to sell and we came out far better than if we had sold when we first wanted to. Thanks for advise George, You are a good friend and Realtor. We recommend you highly.

I was looking for a great home with George, and found this one a few years back. We were able to purchase it, and loved the community and the house. We also had just gotten married so we decided to buy a bigger house. George helped us with that as well and also sold our home. The timing was the big issue and he did exactly what he said he would, which was work it out so we had a week to move and even helped us move! Great service and I would recommend him to anyone who wants the sale or purchase handled without a glitch! Thanks George! You?re the family real estate agent for all of us! Less ... More

George and team did an excellent job marketing my townhome and we received an offer close to our asking price within 2 weeks. The townhome ended up selling above the appraised value. George was very responsive to all my questions and concerns and stepped in to solve some issues during the time before closing to make sure we closed as scheduled. I would definitely use George and his team again and recommend to my friends.

It took some time but they kept working, kept marketing, kept us informed and basically stayed with us! We were difficult to say the least, and they never flinched.

We relocated to South Florida for my husband?s job and were forced to sell our home. My sister recommended George from when she sold her home and we met with him and a couple of other agents. His knowing of the market helped us make and easy choice but what really made me happy was service he provided. My husband had already moved to Naples for his job and George helped us with movers, lawn people, everything! Just he made it very easy! I think he is very good and he gets 5 stars!

George Philbeck?s detailed knowledge of selling a home offered comfort and security, and I am wholeheartedly pleased with the entire experience. To start, he immediately photographed crisp, clear images of the interior and exterior, and also created a stunning virtual tour; this allowed perspective local and out-of-town buyers a private, guided tour without setting foot inside the front door. Within a few days we had several tangible showings, and on the tenth day the house sold for a fantastic price. Thanks to George?s capabilities, I?m very satisfied and would highly recommend him to any buyer or seller. Less ... More

By giving me ideas as well as choices it made the decisions very easy. Not only is he a good friend but someone I know I could trust. As a family man he understands what it is like to move a "Family" . Showing schools, shopping centers, having information on how to get around town as well as some of the best places to eat.

Mr. Philbeck truly cared about the sale of our home. Since we were living in another state, he took care of everything. He prepped the house after our renters left, put it on the market and sold it within days. All we had to do is sign papers. We met George when he lived in our neighborhood and grew to respect his work. My husband kept in touch with him and asked him to sell our home when we were ready. It was a beautiful process with Mr. Philbeck in charge. We could not have asked for better!

George is very knowledgeable and professional. I knew I could trust George with the sale of my home. We thought about selling a couple of years ago, but the real estate market was weak. The suggestion was made, by George, that we wait a couple of years. Sure enough, the real estate market has shown considerable strength and we were delighted to learn that there were multiple buyers interested in purchasing our home when we placed it on the market. Our home sold at a price fair to both buyer and seller. I would use George Philbeck and his firm to purchase and or sell another home. Less ... More

I have bought 5 houses over the last 20 years. It has never been a fun process until I used George Philbeck. Many agents don't really listen to you when it comes to your wants & needs. They don't ask enough questions. George is very personable but he doesn't put FLUFF on looking for your home. George is a cut to the chase kind of guy. Meaning, he really listens to all the things you want or don't want. He listens, gathers the information and goes to work. Many conversations throughout the process. George asked us about our top 5 needs for a home. George was so spot on with our needs, that the very first home we looked at, was the one. That being said. George had us look at 15-20 other homes, just to be sure. Still it was the first home and we couldn't have been happier with the result! Less ... More

Several months ago George Philbeck assisted my wife and I in selling our home. We had worked with George on a prior real estate transaction and did not hesitate in calling upon his services for this most recent sale. George is a consummate professional who is extremely knowledgeable in all facets of real estate sales and purchases. George worked diligently in guiding us throughout the process from appropriately staging the home and articulating a comprehensive description of the property to advocating for and negotiating the details of the final contract. George was readily available to respond to any question that required an answer and usually within minutes. I have referred George Philbeck's services to many friends and acquaintances. I highly recommend George Philbeck and will utilize his services again. Less ... More
