Client Testimonials

Measuring Success Through Client Satisfaction

“My wife and I recently purchased a home in Coral Gables. We actually had the pleasure of working with John Seidel on the seller’s side. As a buyer, you often hear stories about how difficult it can be working with the seller and their agents. This was not the case with John, and in fact, we had the exact opposite experience. John was very personable, honest, easy going, and extremely helpful. He and our broker efficiently worked together to get our deal done promptly and strived to make all parties happy. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Gables, and gave us plenty of great advice on the amenities around the neighborhood (e.g., gyms, schools, community activities). We were very impressed. We look forward to working with John in the future. We highly recommend John to sellers and buyers looking for an experienced, personable, and reputable agent.”

When we moved to Coconut Grove two years ago, it was John who gave consistently good advice and did the hard work to put us in a nice condo — and he wasn’t even our broker at the time. He’s a real professional and a gentleman to boot. Followed up with us on some details, including timely filing for a homestead tax benefit. I highly recommend him.

Moving is a tough enough job in itself; moving to a new State and city is even tougher when you don’t know anything — especially moving from a Manhattan apartment to suburban South Florida living. Trudy and I wanted to be sure you knew how much all your efforts meant to us finding a new home. You have set a standard others will find difficult if not impossible to meet. Just a few examples, You

Asked and listened about our needs and interests

Seemed to be reading our minds by anticipating all our tireless inquiries

Worked tirelessly to find communities and potential homes that met our preferences and lifestyle

Made great suggestions from inspectors to attorneys and more

Provided wonderful guidance when it came to selecting and making a deal. At no time did you tell us what to do you always offered options for us to consider to make the right decision

Having spent my career consulting to Fortune 100 firms, Ive come to recognize professionalism. You exuded such a professional approach at each and every step. Trudy and I are indeed fortunate to have worked with you and your generosity keeps giving every day we are in our home. Thanks again for everything and we wish you all the best you deserve it.

Ed Freedman & Trudy Kane

My husband and I wanted to let you know what an outstanding job John Seidel did for us on both the selling and buying end of our recent transactions in this trying real estate market. He was extremely professional in the manner he handled potential buyers, marketing our property on the web sites and printed ads, open houses and broker opens, not to mention the numerous inspections and closings when we sold and bought our homes.

As a mother of three children under the age of four, trying to sell a home can be extremely stressful to a family. John was not only a realtor to us, but wore many hats during the process. He acted as babysitter while I prepped the home for showings; marriage counselor to my husband and I when we disagreed over pricing and issues involved in selling/buying a home; designer with great ideas for staging the home; weekend chauffeur to every house on the market in numerous neighborhoods and mediator between all parties involved. He held our hands, figuratively, and went well above his duties as realtor, literally, through every step of selling and buying a home.

To say that John Seidel puts 100% of himself into his job would be an understatement. He understands that making the decision to sell or buy a house is more than a business transaction, it is life changing; it is your home!

We will recommend John and Coldwell Banker to all of our friends and family, as well as use him again in future real estate matters.

Completely Satisfied Clients,

Sunnie & John Gautier

I am not one to write thank you letters, however, in this instance it is well deserved. Not a day goes by that my wife and I don’t discuss what an outstanding job you did for us. You truly are a pearl in a sea of mediocrity.

As we read about the market in Miami and across the country we marvel in your ability to sell our home so close to our original asking price. We still receive email alerts that show other houses superior to ours with reduced prices beneath what we sold ours for. We can not thank you enough.

Thank you again for going above and beyond on a daily basis helping us out when we were 600 miles away. What other realtor would feed our dogs on weekends and make sure the house was always in order? What other realtor would give up much of his own life to make sure we sold our house so quickly?

Again, thank you so much for everything. We aim to return to South Florida in a few years and look forward to the opportunity to work with you again.

Ashley & Sean Adorno

John is unquestionably the best residential real estate agent I have had the pleasure of working with in Miami. He possess traits and talents that are sorely lacking in the real estate industry in Miami. Those traits and talents are integrity, honesty, professionalism, unsurpassed salesmanship, courteousness, and tenacity.

My wife and I had been dreaming of the perfect forever home for many years and John helped it all come together with flying colors. From Day 1, when he immediately answered our initial questions during a long phone call and then followed up with a thorough email later that evening, to the day we closed on our home, we knew John was the right choice. John stuck with us through thick and thin for almost an entire year. He never wavered and remained available at all times regardless of the issue or concern.

We strongly recommend John to anyone thinking of buying a house in the Miami area. John knows his stuff. While his expertise provides you with a consummate professional on your side, his personal attention makes you feel like you have a friend in your corner as well.

David & Lauren Kahn

John Seidel is a top notch professional. He has represnted us twice. He knows the local market thoroughly and has excellent contacts that enable him to ensure that everything stays on track. John is proactive and responsive. He uses excellent judgement and consistently follows through personally. I highly recommend him.
