Walter Ray Spikes Jr. with "Your Suncoast Team"
Full-time real estate professional with
proven track record in Sarasota
Dedicated to service
Knows the market
I'm a second-generation Sarasota native who is truly in the know about the local real estate market - from downtown condos to beach homes to farm houses with acreage. I believe that business relationships are built on personal service, and I will be your go-to guy throughout the entire process.
Whatever your lifestyle or budget, my team and I will guide you through the entire home buying or selling process. I'm a former car dealership owner of 14 years, so who better to negotiate your offers and contracts? I also have two children in college, so I am highly motivated to succeed!
My track record¿
Even through 2020 the year of Covid, I was still able to complete 36 Transactions with a new personal best record for the year of 2020 TOPPING OVER $10 MILLION
For buyers -
I understand how stressful first-time home buying can be, and I especially love helping entry-level buyers and investors find just the right property at the best price. Clients who are moving
to a new neighborhood or relocating from another part of the country (and Snowbirds!) will also benefit from my in-depth familiarity with the greater Sarasota area.
First, tell me what's important to you. Retirement community? Downtown lifestyle? Beach front property? Country living? Golf and recreation? Local school districts? Long-term investment or flip? Let's talk!
For sellers -
Let's get together for a free, no obligation tour of your property and review comparable properties that have sold recently in your neighborhood. I will then present a plan to market your home to qualified buyers.
You may ask me:
What does a realtor do?
What are realtor commissions?
What are current market values?
Where will my listing appear on line?
Will there be an open house?
What is the benefit of listing with an agent vs. selling the home myself?
If we agree to work together, we will go over all of the paperwork in detail. All of the terms will be carefully explained to your satisfaction, leading up to a signed contract.
On the market¿.
Some properties sell themselves in a few days. Others need more time and exposure in the marketplace. Your property will appear in all of the on-line Multi-List sites that have thousands of viewings every day, such as Zillow, Realtor.com and Facebook. I am a Zillow Premier Agent. Not to mention the Lavish Coldwell Banker marketing plan.
I seek to match sellers with my own clients who are looking for homes, as well as work with agents from other companies who bring potential homebuyers to us.
