Realtor: Andrew Dickinson

Date: 07/27/2016

We were very appreciative of the help we received from Andrew. Stress is the name of the game for any major move.  His positive feedback and insights regarding the real estate business here in Spring Hill were major factors in making our home purchase a smooth and successful one. 

We especially appreciated his communication skills.   Since our home purchase in Spring Hill was contingent on the sell of our home in south Florida, he skillfully communicated to the sellers in our behalf throughout the process.  He made himself readily available to us anytime we made a trip up to either look at properties or revisit the one we had seen.   We really can't express the gratitude we have for the time, attention, & assistance that we received in such a short period of time.  His courtesy and calm sincerity would be a great benefit to anyone looking to purchase / buy a home.   Andrew's professionalism didn't overshadow his sincere concern for OUR needs and concerns. We would highly recommend him to anyone we know.

Tropic Shores Realtor: Donna Warwick

Date: 07/23/2016

We were looking to purchase a home in Florida while still living in Minnesota .We came to Florida to initially look for a few days at areas of interest and Donna was extremely helpful at showing us various areas and had a lot of knowledge to share of the areas. We returned to Minnesota and started to look online at homes 6 months later when we were ready to make the move.We sent on the ones of interest to us and Donna was great at looking into them and getting additional information for us. When we came back to purchase something, she showed us multiple homes and was a huge help in making a decision. We did the closing back in Minnesota and she was great in doing the walk thru for us, taking pictures,etc. She even came to the house after the closing and before we moved to check on the house and the plants. Donna went above and beyond to help us find our home and make the move as easy as possible, not to mention the laughs we shared along the way! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Linda and Jim Chapman, Homosassa FL

Realtor: Doug Lindsey 

Date: 07/20/2016 

In a 3 month period, we dealt w/22 different agents in various areas of Fl. Being from Fl, we know a lot abt the State. W/in hrs, some agents never called back after giving them the "dream list". Some agents "hung in" for 2 wks, pushing areas, that we specifically had said "no", too. We were doing all the research on our own. When, Doug came into the scene, w/our first meeting, we KNEW we had a professional. We are both experienced in sales, and we read the same logic and diligence w/Doug. He took charge & did not waiver. W/respect & humor, he stayed w/us. Our highest recommendation lands on the spot, that Doug Lindsey now holds for us.

I highly recommend Andrew if you are looking to buy a house.

Realtor: Donna Warwick

Date: 07/05/2016

I had the pleasure of using Donna for both the purchase and sale of my home. I couldn't have asked for a better agent. She was easy to communicate with, quick, always available and listened to all of our requests. During the sale of my home there were some very unfavorable situations that arised from an emotional split. Donna was ever so patient and understanding and never gave up on helping me out. Where many other agents would have Probably thrown the towel in, Donna stayed professional and dedicated. If it wasn't for her I am not sure if we would have ever been able to get our house sold. Donna is a unique individual, adaptable to any personality and situation which is priceless in this industry. I highly recommend her for your real estate needs!

Patricia Bancroft, Spring Hill Fl

Realtor: Donna Warwick

Date 07/01/2016

Having been in the mortgage industry for over 15 years, I have worked with some really good realtors and some not so good.  Donna is the best of the best - I have never worked with a realtor who had more dedication and tireless devotion to her clients throughout the buying process and well beyond.  She is a godsend to work with from a mortgage lending standpoint. If and when challenges arise - she is the ultimate professional and her "get it done" mentality has saved and helped insure the closure of several difficult transactions.  I wish she was the agent I worked with on every transaction.  Thanks!

Jeralyn Castell, Spring Hill Florida

Real Estate Agent: Andrew Dickinson

Date: 05/28/2016

We interviewed 4 agents, all but one truly listened to our needs and was completely honest! The other 3 all low-balled our ideal suggested price and could NOT make a promise to anything. They just wanted a low-ball price and make a fast sale to add to their own list. Andrew Dickinson, promised to sell the house within a reasonable time at our suggested price. He was extremely honest and went out of his way to help us!!! He wasn't in it just for his commission, Andrew wanted to TRULY help us get the house sold as soon as possible due to our situation. He is an Honest-Professional and Friendly person who is there to help his clients! This is what happened, do you know any one Realtor who can promise to sell your home at your price within your time frame? Andrew did just that for us. He came out to see us for his interview and to get to know us first before even looking at the house. We knew he was the one PERSON that was in this situation for us, not just for his commission. We hired him to sell our home. He came the next day to take pictures, explained everything to us about the Florida rules and regulations in selling the home, again, to verify that we knew and understood completely (we live out-of-state) the home is in Florida. As soon as Andrew took the pictures of the home, he placed them up on the MLS before 24 hours. He SOLD our home in 23 hours after the MLS listing was posted! Full Price, Cash Offer and even improved the closing! This was amazing and so is Andrew Dickinson! You will find Andrew that way too!!! Hire him to find you your new home and/or to sell your home.

Ken and Sheri Mandell, Spring Hill FL home seller

Andrew did a fantastic job finding the right house. He was very helpful and patient with us. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Stephen Mann, Brooksville home buyer

Realtor: Pepper Greenwell

Date: 05/18/2016

My wife and I are very thankful that we found Pepper Greenwell, We had looked at a couple of homes with another realtor but that realtor didn't really seem to care about our needs. We were moving from Ohio and saw a house we were interested in, instead of just sending a generic request for a realtor my wife called the realtor company directly and got Pepper. What a difference. Pepper is awesome. She constantly kept us informed and helped us to get our new home. We received updates and information we needed to insure that the home didn't slip away from us and anytime, and I mean anytime, we tried to contact her we got a response. She really seams to love her job and helping people find their new home. She has even contacted us since our move to see how we are doing. If you need a realtor I don;t believe you could find anyone else that would work harder for you and really care about what happens.

Our experience with Julie was flawless. Selling a home is daunting, especially the first time. From the moment we met Julie we were impressed with her professionalism and made at ease by her friendliness. She really views herself as part of the team. One of the things we appreciated most was how clearly and regularly she communicated with us. We always knew what was going on and why. She made a complicated process as smooth as it could be.

Realtor: Julie Ann Ludovico

Date 01/11/2016

Julie performed above and beyond any of our expectations to ensure we could sell the home. We could not be more pleased with the way she handled the "regular"things that must be done to sell a home but even more she took care of so may "other" issues that would have been difficult for us to handle since we were not in the local area. Without hesitation she went into action to take care of issues that needed to be handled. And she was able to give us good advise on what we must do and what was best for our interest. There is no one better to list with.

Tropic Shores Realtor: Julie Ludovico

Date 01/05/2016

I usually don't do testimonies, but I have to let everyone know about a angel that was sent my way. A few months ago I decided to buy a home. The first agent that was assigned to me by USAA from another company was horrible, then I was assigned to Julie Ludovico. She was and still is my angel. She was so wonderful, professional, caring and very knowledgeable about buying homes. I was so afraid and confused with the process, but Julie made my experience very easy and less stressful. I would not trade her for anything in the world. I recommend her to anyone who is trying to buy a home. She was there every step of the way, if I needed to just vent about anything she was always there. Julie is irreplaceable. Tropic Shores has their diamond in the rough and need to make sure they keep her. She is a winner in every sense of the word. Thank you Julie for your kindness and your professionalism. If I ever decide to buy another home you will be the only one that I will call. Because I trust you and know you will have my best interest at heart. Thank you again for just being you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Frank Paris - Spring Hill FL

Realtor: Cathy Sickler

Date: 12/14/2015

This is long overdue. A year ago I was trying to buy a house in Bushnell the listing agent not only would not return my calls but when I finally got someone to show me the house refused to write my purchase offer. I saw another listing in the neighborhood with Cathy Sickler's name as the listing agent. I called her and she met me at the house in 20 minutes. Wrote up my offer and we waited for two weeks for a response. The listing agent never submitted the offer and took it upon herself to refuse the offer. After threating to sue, the owner of the agency submitted the offer himself and my offer was accepted. Cathy was an incredible support and went way above and beyond to help me get the home I wanted. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home in this area.

Dave Nadeau, Bushnell FL home buyer

Real Estate Agent: Elsie Kempsey

Date: 10/18/2015

Kelsie was awesome. She took me around to numerous house, provided me great feedback on houses and locations, and put up with my many requests to revisit homes before I made my final decision. Her assistance during the closing process was invaluable. I really felt she cared about making sure I found the right house for me.

Real Estate Agent: Denise Laufenberg

I highly recommend Denise for any real estate transaction. She took her time with my family through the entire process. Any time that I texted or called her she responded very quickly. During my closing Denise really looked out for me and asked questions to make sure my transaction was correct. I have worked with other realtors before when purchasing a home but none of them made me feel like they were on my side like Denise. God bless this young lady whom I know will go far in her career. I'm thankful that I was introduced to this amazing young lady.

We worked with Elsie and Julie to purchase our new horse farm in early 2014, as well as to sell my partner's horse farm a few months ago. Both Elsie and Julie are wonderful to work with. They sure know their stuff and do a great job guiding you step by step through the buying and selling process, which has become very difficult. They also do an outstanding job providing multiple options for a given situation, as well as coming up with creative solutions to complicated issues. They do a great job keeping in touch through the entire process and are always available by phone, email, or text messages. They are the best, and I would highly recommend listing with Elsie and Julie or having them help you find your dream home/property!

Just thinking about selling my Spring Hill home in order to downsize and get on with my life was daunting. I happened to check my local realtors and decided on Tropic Shores Realty.. There were many realtors to choose from. I chose Julie Ludovico and her silent partner, Elsie Kempsey.. From the beginning of our partnership I knew I was in good hands.. Julie was well-informed, positive and always available to help make the process smooth.. My home sold in a surprisingly short time and my downsizing goal was well on its way. Thank you both Julie & Elsie

I just wanted to take this opportunity to provide feedback on my house buying experience with my agent Julie Ludovico. This was my second time in the last year buying a house with her assistance and I could not have been more pleased with her! While searching for this new house, I was going through an extremely stressful personal situation and she went above and beyond to make this process as easy as possible. She was constantly putting my needs first during the entire process and as a result of her hard work and dedication, she helped me locate and purchase the house of my dreams. I could not be more thankful that I had such a great person to help me in my time of need. She is not only a consummate professional, but she is also an extremely friendly person and willing to do whatever it takes to lend a helping hand.

Date: 07/25/2015

Whether it be in buying or selling a home, Julie Ludovico is amazing! When I decided it was time to downsize, Julie's hard work, commitment and guidance led me to buy a new home that suited me perfectly. I very recently closed on the sale of my old home and throughout the process of finding a buyer, she remained just as dedicated and precise... and I even ended up with a cash buyer! She is, without a doubt the ultimate professional, knowledgeable and competent, and her warm and caring demeanor lets you know she is an agent who will be attentive to all your needs. I most definitely will continue to recommend her without hesitation to anyone needing a realtor. She is the very best! Thank you again, Julie... I am grateful you were my realtor, and you are indeed my friend!

Agent: Sana Margieh

Date: 06/23/15

After several dead ends with an agent at Keller Williams, I was trying to accept that we were going back to TN again without buying a home. We contacted and met Sana at a property she had listed and signed a contract that same day (March 15, 2014). She brought us back the contract with the owners signature the next day, Sunday. We told her we already scheduled flight back to TN and needed to close asap. She made it happen, we closed on our house March 19, 2014. We went back home TN the next day, packed Penske truck and headed to our new home. It's been over a year now and we really think that no house we looked at could have been better for us. We love it and are so thankful it all happened like it did. Thank you so much.

Agent: Julie Ludovico 

Date: 03/05/2015

Searching for just the right home is not an easy task, and having an agent who is extremely knowledgeable of the market is a must. I consider myself very fortunate in having Julie Ludovico as my realtor because she unfailingly showed me homes that offered what I was looking for and that also fell within my price range. She listened carefully to my needs, then followed through and pointed out properties she thought were suitable as well as those I selected to view. Julie is competent, friendly, puts you at ease, and does all she can to make home shopping a pleasurable experience. She makes herself available when you need her, and I'm happy to say we found my home in a relatively short time, and am looking forward to getting settled in soon. I hold her in high esteem and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone searching for real estate. Tropic Shores Realty is lucky to have an agent of her caliber.

After talking to several realtors, USAA paired us up with Ms. Elsie, and we are so grateful for her honesty, kindness, persistence...and most of all for taking the impossibility out of being a first-time buyer. We were terrified and clueless, but she made a horrendous process easy...and even a little bit fun ;)

Agent: Julie Ludovico and Elsie Kempsey 

Date 12/23/2014

Julie and Elsie were Outstanding! It was my first time as a home buyer and things weren't going so smooth with the financing part as we'd hoped for, but Julie and Elsie did everything they could've done on their part to try to help. I got new listings every day, if they sent me a listing in the AM they had no problem showing me the house on the same day. Im very grateful for both of them. They not only find you listings they also do deep searches to make sure that is a good home. As being a first time home buyer I had many questions and there was never time that I had to wait for an answer or wait on them for anything else period. They truly go Above and Beyond! The best thing I can say is that they didn't make me feel like a client, they made me feel like family and honestly when you are so stressed about everything else that is the one thing that you need. I highly recommend both of them! Thank you so much for making my dream of being a home owner come true!

Sandy and James Brewer, Spring Hill Florida


Agent: Elsie Kempsey

Date: 11/26/2014

I am not sure how I was lucky enough to find Elsie, but she has truly been a blessing for me. I am moving from Oklahoma City and unfortunately time was very limited. Elsie listened to me, sent me many homes to look at over the internet and generally did my searches for me. I had one day to look and try and find a home. Elsie in spite of being busy, knowing that I only had a day spent the entire day with me making sure we covered everything that I had requested. Not only once, but twice. Since I had to go back to Oklahoma, she has gone above and beyond what I would expect from anyone in helping me close on our home. I never once had to ask, she just did it. If you want someone that will give you an exceptional customer service experience, I would highly recommend Elsie and her team. Thank you, you have been amazing!!!

Julie was great! She made the process of buying a home for us so easy and smooth that we did not even realize when we started and when we finished. She was knew all the houses that we saw and helped us answer any questions we had about them. And trust me, we were not the easiest of buyers. With a 3 year old and wired job schedule times, she was always accommodating to our needs. We recommended her to our friends and they found their dream home as well! We will surely recommend Julie to any one else.

Realtor: Robin Heugal

Date: 10/13/2014

My partner and I originally lived in the U.K , we corresponded via e-mail with Robin, who viewed a number of houses in our absence, in order to create a shortlist. Robin kept us regularly updated and explained the pros and cons of each property. In our first week in America, Robin had kindly put 2 days aside to focus on our search, we viewed a number of properties, finding the perfect home on the 1st day! Robin liased with us and the owner, and explained the whole process clearly and simply, holding our hand through every step. We were so fortunate to find an agent who cares about their clients, I cannot recommend Robin highly enough.

If any friend or family member ever is looking for a house, we would recommend Denise. She is a ray of sunshine.

We are very pleased with the agent's service. Elsie was so nice and helpful from the beginning to the end. She asked me what I was looking for and when she showed me the houses; she knew what I wanted. She worked with us all through the buying process. She's an "angel". Thank you Elsie!

"As a first time home buyer I was very nervous about the whole home buying process. Elsie made it so easy.  She was very aggressive when it came talking to the mortgage company, she was on top of everything.  She made us feel like she was family. I couldn't ask for a better realtor.  

Thank you Elsie!"

I just recently purchased a home in Brooksville, FL with the help of Julie Ludovico with Tropic Shores Realty.  From the very beginning to the very end, she was extremely helpful and worked tirelessly to make sure that the home buying process went as smoothly as possible.  I cannot say enough good things about how much I enjoyed working with her in the purchase of my new home.  I would highly recommend her for anyone thinking of buying a home in the future!!!

"Julie was amazing! She helped me find what I was looking for and was with me every step of the way! I ran into problems
 with the seller, but Julie worked things out and made it so much less stressful then it could of been. She was constantly in contact with me so I knew what was going on from beginning until after closing. THANKS JULIE!"

I worked with Julie for several months looking for a home in the Spring Hill area.  When we found the house that I ended up purchasing, there were lots of questions, especially since I moved there from a different part of the state.  Julie was always prompt in her responses to my many questions and I found her to be a great source for information.  She is very professional, great to work with, has a good sense of humor and clearly knows the real estate business.  If I buy or sell a home again, Julie is the one I will call first.

Our agent was very nice and patient with us.  It can be stressful when you are an out of state buyer.  Most all the other agents would never return my calls once they found out we were out of the state.  Elsie even had a local map she gave me when I couldn't find one.  We are very happy with our new home.

We were recommended to Julie Ludovico by a friend. We are so happy that Julie came into our lives. We had decided to downsize and sell our home in Brooksville. Julie's bubbly personality was so loving, caring and sweet. The professional way she handled the Listing, prospective clients, the selling Realtor and the sale of our home. Julie was wonderful to work with and has extended a hand of friendship to us. We would highly recommend Julie to our friends. Thanks, Julie for a job well done.

Julie Ludovico is the most patient and kindest Realtor I have ever worked with. Her personality and positive attitude towards things is phenomenal and working with her was a joy.Thanks to Julie, I have a wonderful house that I absolutely love. I honestly think she does her job excellently with a determined, eager outlook. In fact, when I bought my new home, she sold my old one in a minimum of two weeks. Julie Ludovico is an astounding person and without her, I wouldn't have my dream house I have now. If you're looking for a house to buy or sell, Julie Ludovico is the Realtor you want.

As a homewoner located a continent away form the property being sold, it was impossible for me to accomplish the many things necessary to make the listed property marketable and compliant with lender requirements. Julie Ludovico went way beyond reasonable expectations and performed services as no other agent could. I am not sure we would have sold this property with anyone else. She is a superstar!

Julie was most pleasant and helpful in every way possible. I was buying from long distance and Julie went out of her way to accommodate my every request, and made the transaction as easy as possible. I would gladly work with her again and it will be my pleasure to recommend her to as many potential customers as possible.

Elsie was a wonder agent. She showed us properties that fitted our criteria and when we found "the house", she represented us expertly. She was exceptional when we had problems with the loan company and she handled all this for us while we were in our summer home in Washington state. It's not easy when you are so far away, but she made things happen and we are looking foreward to moving into our new house in late October. Thank you Elsie

Elsie passed all my 'tests' when it comes to a real estate professional: she responded promptly when I solicited her for help in selling my mother-in-law's home she confirmed our listing appointment and showed up a few minutes early (she couldn't have known that being late is my biggest pet peeve) she was appropriately respectful in dealing with my husband and his siblings over the loss of their mother and in her market analysis of the home she was genuine and professional and came across as confident and knowledgeable. It's a bonus that she was funny and just perfectly 'normal' and genuine. She helped us price the home where it should be without any false or unreasonable expectations. We had multiple offers and sold immediately! We closed without issue with her following up until the paperwork was signed and we were on our way. I can't say enough about how much I appreciate how well this went from start to finish. Such an emotional sale with my in-laws in the home for over 20 years, but Elsie just made it so easy for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

This was sale of a piece of unimproved land. Though the sale was small by normal real estate standards, Elsie and Julie worked hard and aggressively on it, and got the job done. When I emailed a question about it, they were always quick to get back to me, and when we ran into a problem right at the end because of something I'd forgotten to do, they hung in there with me and helped me get through it to a successful conclusion. I'd be happy to use them again if I had another transaction in the area. Thanks, ladies.

Buying a house is more than just a purchase transaction, it is an adventure. My agent Elsie was the guide through the many emotional and complex aspects that come with buying a home. Elsie&rsquos experience and knowledge along with her in depth familiarity of the region was a key component for me being able to close on my dream home. I could count on Elsie day and night. Her responsiveness, attention to detail and never wavering friendless made this purchase a fantastic experience!

We loved the fact that she kept in contact with us and was very efficient in answering our questions and helping with other important items needed for our closing on our property. She worked hard for us and she should be commended for a job well done. What a great lady!!

I love Julie, not only is she sweet and hysterical, but a true professional. She put up with me which says alot and never made me feel bad when I would just "lose it!!". Buying a house is stressful enough but during the holidays was a nightmare. I recommend her and will certainly use her services again. Just keep her away from spiders and bugs, unless you want a laugh.  Thanks so much Julie, you are the best!!!

Julie is like the energizer bunny she never runs down.  She stuck with us while we were looking for a house in Fl from IN.  She continued to send us listing even when she knew we had not sold our house up north.  When the time came to buy she made time for us and worked tirelessly as we looked at lots and lots of houses. She was so patient with us as we were very picky. We finally found the the perfect house and it came with a big bonus.  A new friend in Spring Hill Julie Ludovico!

My dad passed away late August and we placed his home with Tropic Shores shortly thereafter.We live in the Chicago area so much of our dealings were long distant. Elsie sold my Dad's home in two months in a tough housing market. She was amazingly responsive to all our needs from getting bids for a new roof,and helping manage the process, to providing ideas on how to handle the homes contents. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, always upbeat and very knowledgeable about her profession. I really don't think we could have chosen better professionals to work with than Elsie and Tropic Shores - Thank You Again

 Elsie and Julie did a great job for us selling our mother's house. We are from way out of town, so we really needed realtors who knew the area, and they do - we had a contract on the house in a week and a half! The team was wonderful to work with, keeping us in the loop every step of the way by email and phone, and Elsie did a fantastic job working with 91 year old mom too. We highly recommend Team Tropic Hernando to anyone selling in the Spring Hill area!

Always pleasant and knowledgeable, always readily available to show us anything we want to see. She truly has the patience of a Saint dealing with us!!  Any questions we have had throughout the buying process, Elsie either had the answer or found us the answer quickly!

Even though the purchase of a home in spring hill did not happen. (Due to banking issues.) You kept to your promise and represented my wife and me. I wanted to take some time and thank you for all your hard work, determination and dedication. Your sound advice and professional attitude made, what was a traumatic experience for me, so much more bearable. In my opinion, you went above and beyond the 'norm' and I will always be grateful to you for your kindness and assistance.
