Dear Robert,

Every once in awhile we come to a situation in life where we have to put our trust in other people.  We just can't go through life and not count on other people.  In some ways it's our ability and appreciation to do just that that makes us realize how important other people are to our everyday existence. Our new home in Heritage Harbour is all that we could have wished for, a wonderful home in a great location, a very nice community, and pleasant neighbors.  Our selection of this property could not have been possible without your professional recommendation and follow-up on all matters concerned.

We demand the best service from those with whom we do business, and we can say without hesitation that your caliber of service exceeds our greatest expectations. We give these words to you out of the greatest respect and appreciation for all that you do.  We want you to know that our trust in you comes as a result of your professional and personal attention to detail. We remain forever grateful.

I highly recommend Carol Marra as a broker, if I had to use one word it would be "Outstanding". Several months ago my wife and I started working with Carol in the Bradenton area and another broker further south in the Venice area. Both brokers over a few months sent us listing in each area. My wife and I picked the properties we wanted to see in both areas and made the trip from NY to do so. We found the properties in Bradenton far better for what we wanted. We settled on River Strand in Heritage Harbor. The complex offered us golf, pools, beautiful clubhouse, very nice people, walking trails, great value, awesome beaches, area shopping & restaurants and so much more. There was no comparison in value between the two areas. This would not of been possible without the hard work of Carol in finding what we wanted. The next step was the contract, inspection and closing. We were able to do all of this remotely thanks to Carol. Whatever we needed Carol took care of. The whole process could not of been any simpler. Anytime I had a question Carol provided quick responses. Bottom line, if you want a very dedicated broker who cares and I stress who cares Carol is the broker you want. We have been here several months and truly love it, all of visitors are so impressed by what we have here. Thank you Carol. I would be more than happy to answer any questions anyone has.
Mike and Janis Egan
There aren't enough words in the English language to bestow upon Robert Casella on how wonderful, honest, trust worthy and near perfect a man he truly is. Thank you Robert, and your devoted and also most wonderful assistant, Samantha, for making the sale of our River Strand condo THEE best ever! 
We will never forget you two and will be indebted to you forever! Always smiling, always happy, a true straight shooter, Robert will 'tell it like it is' and guide you through your real estate transaction with extreme professionalism and as little stress as possible.
I highly recommend Robert Casella and his team for your next real estate purchase or sale.
Cindy and Nick Incontrera
Robert is a true professional and extremely knowledgeable of the market in Bradenton/Lakewood Ranch. He made the processes of selling our property extremely easy. He went above and beyond to help get the property ready to sell and close. His communication skills and responsiveness can not be  matched by any other realtor we have ever used. I would highly recommend Robert!
Todd and Bonnie Brewster
Working with Robert was a phenomenal experience! We were referred to Robert by our friends Steve & Lynn Bucknam and we could not be happier. Our very first visit was successful because he listened to what we were looking for and had a good handle on what type of properties we were interested in.   His knowledge of communities in the area was key. Every detail was handled flawlessly along the way, from offer to closing. Purchasing a home from 1500 miles north can be a challenge, but he kept us informed every step of the way. Videos showing the progress of our home were great as well as the prompt attention that we received with every inquiry! Our experience was nothing short of amazing, thank you Robert!

Hire Robert today. He is well prepared, does a complete market analysis and tells you what you want to hear, what you need to hear, and as important, what you might not want to hear.
He helped us get a market competitive offer in two weeks, dealt with a difficult buyer and
  their .... um shall we say... professionally challenging buyers Realtor. In addition, when Hurricane Irma came through and our property manager left town without out placing the hurricane shutters on our home, Robert got it done.
Nuff said - look no further - hire him
David and Elizabeth Murphy
Robert is a fantastic and very thorough realtor. He knows the surrounding areas and cares about his clients needs. I was in the middle of a purchase during Hurricane Irma and Robert went above and beyond to be sure the property was secured. Even though he and his family were displaced, he  communicated with me daily. I could not have felt more confident that Robert was taking care of every detail for me since I am moving from out of state. I would recommend Robert to everyone, whether buying or selling.
Linda Grasso
We purchased a condo a few years ago that was listed by Robert. We were represented by another agent with whom we worked with at the time. Roberts eagerness to help was unmatched by anyone we had known. His local knowledge and expertise paired with professionalism, his friendly and non pushy  approach all lead to trust Robert with listing and selling our condo. He went over and beyond with assisting throughout the selling process. Working in Real Estate myself, Robert is my Sarasota/Bradenton referral connection. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy.
Gyula and Gizella Nyulas
Robert is a consummate professional. Extremely knowledgeable and provides virtually instant responses to any questions. We have sold two homes and just purchased another all through Robert. Each transaction went extremely smoothly. I have dealt with many agents in the past. Robert is simply  the very best.
Peter Hopper
Working with Robert was a very enjoyable experience. He made the entire process palatable and as stress free as possible. When I got excited, he was able to calm me and explain the issues that inevitably come up during a home buying process. If he did not know the answer, he stated so and then  promptly got an answer. He was never too busy to answer the phone. Even taking late night calls from literally halfway around the world. I highly recommend Robert and his services for any real estate needs you may have. If/when I have future needs of his talents I will definitely call him.
Robert and Vicki Pomfret
Robert and I have had over a two year relationship that culminated in my recent River Strand Condominium purchase. I was searching for the best fit for a seasonal Florida residence. Robert was patient, understanding, and went the extra mile to help me make the right purchase for my  circumstances. I have no reservations in recommending Robert as a Buyer's rep and/or a Seller's rep. He has strong insights into the Sarasota/Bradenton market and proved to be very responsive to any/all requests for advice and service. The closing process was handled flawlessly, and entirely on-line.
John and Ardell McNult
Robert is the best realtor we have ever worked with. He is extremely knowledgeable in Florida real estate, and does not miss a detail. He always goes the extra mile, whether he is representing you for a purchase or a sale. Since we were out of town buyers for our first Florida home, he actually  performed our walk through, and was likely more thorough then i would have been. Recently, he represented us on the purchase of a resale. When we had questions about mechanical issues with the pool, Robert walked out of the walk through and immediately contacted the vendor for us. He is incredibly thorough and treats his job as a business, with consummate professionalism. Thank you Robert for all of your dedication and hard work for us.
Donald and Sonya Campbell
Our experience with Robert was terrific-he is professional and knowledgeable about many communities in the area we had an interest. He devoted several days to our search and was very responsive to our needs. He focused on our reactions to different models and houses to narrow our search. I highly  recommend Robert's services; thanks to his diligence and knowledge, we purchased a house we love in a great neighborhood.
Deirdre Lawe
Mr. Robert Casella is knowledgeable, friendly and professional in all of his interactions. I have found him to be extremely responsive and gets the job done. I most certainly give him 'Five Stars PLUS' in all rating factors and have zero hesitation in recommending him to anyone with real estate  needs. 
Dale and Sherry Glick

"We first met Robert in 2016 when we purchased our first part-time Florida home. Our rental agency recommended him and we feel very fortunate for that. At the time, we were overwhelmed with the many communities and choices available. He expertly and patiently guided us through it all. In 2018, we again asked Robert to help us find our full-time Florida home and sell our part-time Florida home. He did not disappoint. We cannot say enough good things about his knowledge & expertise of the area, his thorough knowledge of the process, his patience, his responsiveness, his attention to detail, and of course his legal background is a nice plus. Thanks Robert for a wonderful buying/selling experience."

"Extremely detail oriented. Kept us informed at all times. Professional and respectful. He made it clear that selling our property under our terms was always a priority. Chi ( his associate) was also very helpful and a pleasure to work with. Made selling our home effortless! He is an excellent realtor, but more importantly an honest upstanding individual with integrity."

"We worked with Robert as a buyer and a seller. He is professional, immediate and thoughtful. He knows the area, the realty business and his interpersonal skills are exceptional. We have bought and sold many properties in both Florida and Maine, and he is by far and away the best realtor we have worked with. When Robert is on your side there are no surprises. He sold our last house in about 3 days for pretty close to full price."
