I have had the extreme pleasure of working with my agent in the sale of my Captiva, Florida home. She is the consummate professional. Her demeanor assures you that she is in control that she knows what she is doing and that you will have a good outcome which is what all sellers want. She has a great sense of the market and she knows how to get the job done at a price that makes everyone happy. In our case we sold at a time when the market was still down and yet we came out unscathed. We were [...]
Phaidra Mcdermott was one of six real estate agents we interviewed, all of whom we knew and whose reputations were well established in our community. Her selection was easy despite our close personal relationships with three of the six candidates, not including Phaidra. For the interview she was prepared, had a well thought through proposal and was very positive with an eager to "let’s go and I can do it attitude". Phaidra is a professional realtor in every sense of [...]
Our Agent was a true professional with great insight and knowledge about the real estate market on Sanibel. Extremely hard working and would be valuable individual to work with when purchasing any real estate
The best real estate agent and local expert for Sanibel and Captiva Islands. I highly recommend their services.
Had the BEST experience working with Kingfisher Real Estate. The whole team knows Sanibel/Captiva inside and out - and takes the time to get to know you and what you’re looking for. They’ll also go WAY out of their way to make sure the experience is great (even in the middle of a pandemic) Once you’ve found your dream home - they’ll also help plug you into the local businesses to make sure your experience living on the island is seamless.
Phaidra helped us purchase a condo 9 years ago. This year we bought a house and sold our condo. With the help of Tommy and the great staff at Kingfisher we were kept up to date on every detail. They were always available to answer any questions. All paperwork was able to be done virtually. Everything went seamlessly and we very much appreciated it.
I have known Phaidra for 20+ years and bought and sold homes with her. Phaidra and Amy are a great team and it is a pleasure to work with them. They are the BEST!
Phaidra as an owner is hands on and you can tell she cares. She appears to be actively involved and knows the area and the market extremely well and that is key in purchasing a new home. Sanibel is paradise and it seems that Kingfisher has captured the market and the hard work has been rewarded by the many listings they represent. Phaidra appears to go out of her way to meet with the client and listen and respond to help make the best and informed decision. It is an honor and privilege to [...]
We were walk-in clients and we are very lucky and very, very pleased with the service that Kingfisher Real Estate provided. Their service, follow-up communication, management of details, and overall expertise exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend them.
Fantastic Agent! We appreciated the help in purchasing our home and purchasing a new home!
