As a broker, realtor and investor locally and out of state, I understand the importance of choosing the best professionals with whom to work, particularly as an absentee seller.
When I made the decision to sell my investment property in the Palm Beach area, I wanted to work with someone I could trust to handle the listing and sale, and someone who would demonstrate the highest levels of honesty, integrity and ethics, particularly in a difficult business environment.
Steven Presson was recommended to me by a friend in south Florida, and after several telephone conversations, I listed my property with him. It turned out to be a wonderful experience working with Steven.
Not unexpectedly, the sale of a condo took almost 18-months, and during that time, Steven consistently provided me with excellent counsel on market conditions as well as input and competitive analyses to help me adjust my pricing to the changing conditions of the Florida market.
Steven’s work ethic, integrity and consistent honesty were clearly evident throughout the entire time we worked together. There were several offers made that didn’t close, but ultimately, due to his hard work, we were able to conclude the transaction and close the sale to my total satisfaction.
As a realtor, I heartily endorse Steven, and give him the highest of references as a trustworthy businessman and realtor. I’m happy, when the opportunity presents itself to do so, to refer him to other Florida investors whom I know because I’ve found him to be extremely reliable.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions regarding this letter of recommendation.
Real Estate testimonial from Jean Wagner
The south Florida luxury home market is booming. It began in my estimation about a year ago, in August, when I and a few other high end real estate brokers started seeing a real uptick in buying and selling activity in the upper segment of the real estate market. Gulf Stream in particular may have been one of the hottest markets in South Florida. Surprisingly, that was during the late summer, traditionally a time when sales tended to slow.
That increased sales pace in luxury homes has continued through the New Year, and is being driven by three key economic factors that I have tracked over the years.
The first element is the trend of the stock market, which has recently been extraordinary, hitting new highs. This has provided wealthy investors with additional funds and the confidence to make major investments in new or second homes that satisfy their personal tastes for leisure activities like golf, tennis, beaches and boating. When consumer confidence is high buyers are willing to pull the trigger more often and in even some cases over-pay a bit to secure a property. This wouldn’t happen in previous years.
The next factor is the fact that almost 70% of investors and buyers of south Florida’s luxury real estate are from New York, particularly Manhattan and the Hamptons. According to the NY Corcoran Report, “Closed sales in the first quarter of 2014 increased 38 percent over the same period last year…sales volume rose by 27 percent…and [Hampton] properties that are unique and those that are priced well within their particular range are selling much more quickly than usual.” Some luxury apartments in Manhattan are exceeding over $2,000 per square foot numbers not seen since the last boom.

We want to personally thank Steven for his assistance in selling our home. After having listed our home with another broker for over a year, he was referred to us by a trusted friend, and from the beginning we saw the difference he made in the marketing of our home.
Steven’s approach took a great deal of stress off our shoulders, and he not only performed well, but exceeded our expectations. His professionalism, energy, attention to detail and follow-up made us certain that we were in the best hands possible.
Steven proved that we made the right choice, when after only 120-days you sold our home at the agreed upon price. We can’t thank him enough for everything he has done, and are delighted to recommend him to our friends and anyone who is looking for the best in real estate sales of upscale properties.
