Hoversten Testimonial.jpg


"My wife and I recently moved to Florida from Cleveland, Ohio. A long-time friend referred me to Mike Palermo. In our home search we worked with Bianca Fallico and Cristina Lorenzo. It was a difficult search because of the extreme seller's market we walked into and the very specific demands we had for our new home. The ladies stuck with us and worked very hard to find us a home that meets our needs while working around my unusual travel schedule throughout the search. Everyone at the office was helpful and accommodating. I have now purchased 6 homes in my life-time, this was far and away the best service and effort I have experienced."

I've worked with Michael Palermo on both the purchasing and selling side and his knowledge and professionalism is top notch. If you have high standards on how do want to be treated and communicated with, there is no other option in my opinion in South Tampa. I have and will continue to refer him to colleagues, friends, and family as a person I trust and value as a resource in the community. His whole team is responsive and honest, I am lucky to have worked with the Palermo Real Estate Group for as long as I have.

Palermo Real Estate Professionals continues to exceed our expectations. We used them for the purchase of our first home and again recently for the sale and purchase of our second home. They went above and beyond on multiple occasions before, during and after. They are extremely knowledgeable in this field and have your best interest at heart. They are ALWAYS available for their clients. I will continue to highly recommend their exceptional service to ANYONE and EVERYONE looking to buy or sell their property.

The most impressive thing about working with Mike on the sale of our home is that he set reasonable expectations from the start and then exceeded them. He never over-promised to get the job and his input was key in getting our house ready for sale. Throughout the process from going under contract to closing, he kept things moving for us and insulated us from any issues--in short it was nearly a stress free process. His staff was very responsive and professional and Mike personally was always available for our questions. In the end he was able to sell our house for full asking price in 3 days--the result he obtained for us speaks for itself. I would highly recommend him for his practical approach, his sales process and highly professional staff

After buying and selling homes three times the past four years, we have to say that Mike and Jenn Palermo and their amazing team were by far the most professional and accommodating Realty group we have ever worked with. Their knowledge of the local market and understanding of pricing vs inventory ensured we bought the very best home for our needs. We were most impressed with how hands-on they were with managing ALL of the home repairs from the time we went under contract, held inspections, and closed. It would be impossible for any other realty company to exceed the service they provided us and we are so pleased to have developed such a strong relationship with them.

- Mark Raduka

Mike has a vast understanding of the market and a proven process. He helped us identify the right property and successfully guided us to the closing. I liked the way he used market analytics to help us make a good decision. Buying a house is emotional and you want a professional on your team!                                                                   

- Mike Spears

I would highly recommend Mike and his team. Mike is very attentive in his approach during what is normally a very stressful process. From showings through the closing process he is there along the way to ensure a smooth transition. He and his team provide maximum exposure for home sales and his  great connections in the South Tampa community helped find buyers for my house which was only on the market a few months. Ten years ago, Mike helped me find a home based on some demanding requests and I have used him to buy and sell homes ever since!                                 

- Nicole Stroth

Michael handled our listing and process very efficiently, professionally and timely. Michael worked us on the listing price and timing as well as he worked great with the buyers agent to ensure a smooth contract to closing process. Michael was always available promptly via phone, text or email. His staff handled the details and actual closing great as well. We remained on time and Michael and his communicated the entire way through.                                       

- Brent Morgan

Michael and his team helped me sell an investment property in South Tampa on Bayshore Boulevard. He is experienced, thorough, knowledgeable, honest and a really good guy. His entire staff is professional and polite, which is why I highly recommend Palermo Real Estate Professionals. Real estate transactions can often be stressful, but Michael and his staff kept me informed throughout the sales process and made sure everything went smoothly. If you are buying OR selling, call Palermo!

- Jerome Ritchey

We had a great experience working with Bianca to find our first home! She is a great communicator and always kept us up to date and informed about all the necessary deadlines and priorities! We recommend Bianca and the team at Palermo Real Estate to anyone looking for honest, hardworking and reliable representation!

- Lauren Crockett

We've worked with Michael, Cristina, Lisa and John and all were highly professional, very responsive to us, and motivated to help us. We used them to find a tenant for our rental property and then later to sell a property. They did an awesome job on both projects and really handled all the details so we didn't have to. I highly recommend this great team!

- Amy Baruch

Michael was an exceptional agent. He took care of our additional needs due to being out of state and on a different time zone! He was always available and was able to offer great local advice. In return we got an amazing home that we love!

- Oona Johnsen

We had a less than positive experience with another realtor on our relocation to Tampa before we engaged with Mike. He was outstanding- knew the market and clearly understood what we were looking for. The entire process from selection to offer to closing was painless. Highly recommend!

- Michael Leone

Mike and his team are great to work with and they do a great job at making sure you are comfortable and you are getting the best value. Mike is the best when it comes to buying/selling your home, and makes the whole process as relaxing as can be.

- Cameron Frye

I am extremely thankful to have crossed paths with Mike. He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. I have been fortunate to rely on him before during and after my purchase. Thank you to the Palermo team! It’s all in the signs👍.

- Ashley Baez

My husband and I have worked with Micheal Palermo for years and have nothing but good things to say about him and his team. He is a knowledgeable, diligent, and thoughtful person who has helped us navigate through the buying and selling process every step of the way. I would recommend Palermo Real Estate to anyone who wants things done right!

- Dyan Kidd     

I had an excellent experience working with Palermo Real Estate Professionals when it was time to sell my house. Michael Palermo and Tiffany Ballas were awesome. Very thorough, very professional - and great results! I would be glad to work with them again and would be glad to recommend to others. Thanks so much. It was a great experience working with both of you!
