Testimonials

 

I love working with Mike Hughes. He is the best agent I have ever worked with, and I intend to use him on any future real estate selling or purchase I make. He always goes above and beyond to answer all questions and make everything happen as smoothly and as timely as possible. CB

We couldn’t be more pleased with Andrea and the fantastic job she did selling our dream home when we decided to move out of state. She took the time to learn about all of the details that made our home unique, and she was there for every showing to answer questions from buyers and their agents. From listing, to contract negotiations, and all the way through closing, she guided us with poise and professionalism. She is pleasant, easy to work with, and most importantly, she earned and kept our trust throughout the entire process. BW

We have bought and sold close to $4 million in property with Jeff and Mike since 2006. We listed our home with another company and agent based on a strong recommendation of a close friend. What a mess – late for open houses, didn’t return calls, wanted TV on during open house so he could watch car races…11 months of babysitting. From the moment we came back to Jeff and Mike it was like we didn’t have to do a thing… every aspect was taken care of on this property. We will never, I repeat, never go anywhere else! JH

It only took Leigh Jones 10 days to sell my house. She did a very professional job from start to finish. I will recommend Leigh to everyone interested in buying or selling a home. I interviewed 10 real estate agents and Leigh was the only agent that came fully prepared to the initial meeting; she understood the neighborhood value. Leigh opened my eyes to all the possibilities for selling this home and selling it quickly.CM

Christine Mastrilli was my sales associate on the sale of my condo located in Tampa, Florida. She sold my condo in 12 days at a substantial profit, which thrilled me. She was cool, calm and very attentive throughout the entire sales process. She kept me informed without having to hunt her down to see how everything was going and I appreciated that as well. I would definitely recommend Christine to friends, family and anyone interested in seeking a great company and great sales associate. I cannot stress enough that Christine is definitely an asset to Coldwell Banker. She puts her heart and soul into her work and always puts the client first.GG

Rebecca, I truly can’t thank you enough for everything you did for me during this whole process! I will most certainly be recommending you to people in the future. Thank you a thousand times over. BS

My sales associate, Rebecca Batte, was a workhorse. We had a very difficult seller to deal with and without her we would have walked away from the sale – which we would have ultimately regretted. She was helpful in every service we needed (from extended stay locations, inspections, insurance, market analysis, etc.) We were moving from out of state which made everything more challenging and she simplified everything for us. Truly an exceptional asset to the team and we will utilize her services in the future. It’s hard to find quality employees nowadays and we’re lucky to have found her given the magnitude of importance with purchasing a house. PM

Jeff was a pleasure to work with. This is our third home we have purchased but we are new to the Tampa market. Jeff took time to understand the needs of our family and schedule showings that met those needs. Jeff went above and beyond to provide his knowledge on service that would be needed following the close of the house. He has made our transition to the Tampa area very easy. TM

From the moment I met Jeff Shelton I felt at ease. He really listened to what I said, understood my concerns and helped me through the entire process. He knew exactly what the value of the home was, suggested an appropriate listing price and it sold very quickly. He represented my interests in the negotiation of the purchase oh my new home, provided excellent referrals to inspection companies, movers, and other services. He was always available to answer my questions and he made what could have been a very stressful process stress free! While I hope I will be in my new home for many year, I will definitely call him again if I ever decide to move. MM

Being 88 and a widow it was wonderful to have Mike as my sales representative. He was very helpful and knowledgeable. ED

Jeff, we really appreciate your guidance and support on the sale of our home. You exceed expectations and we could not be more pleased. Hope to refer lots of new clients to you! SP

The service on my real estate purchase and sale was more than exceptional. The Hughes Shelton Team exceeded every expectation as they have done in the past. That is why I continue to be a client. TW

We were very impressed with the level of service and professionalism exhibited by Mike, Jeff, and Andrea. The service provided was very hands on and geared toward our particular needs.VS

Mike, Jeff, and Andrea went above and beyond in every aspect of service!ML

Leigh, once again we cannot say enough about the wonderful service you provided and you are such a nice and thoughtful person, who really takes the time to understand her customers.WG

The speed at which the whole process unfolded was astonishing. I think it’s because Leigh was not only and extremely nice person, she was a super professional who knew exactly what she was doing. I would not hesitate to refer people I know to Leigh Jones.CB

Christine Mastrilli was awesome! She really took the time to get to know what we were looking for instead of just pushing us through as many homes in our price range as she could find. Christine made us feel special, and that, for us, made all the difference. Great agent.JS

Leigh was a tremendous help throughout the process since we were not local, she was there to meet inspectors, etc. and was always responsive to calls/emails.AC

Andrea, thank you so much for doing the walk thru and for the video our home. You really did a wonderful job and made this home buying process so much easier. We feel you went above and beyond and can’t thank you enough for all that you have done for us.KB

Andrea has been an outstanding agent. She has been in contact with us on a regular basis through emails, texts, and phone calls. She exudes customer service and represents Coldwell Banker very well. She worked around my families schedule along with having he homework done before showing us property. I have been in Customer service for 20+ years, including management, and she impressed me. I have very high expectations and that is difficult to do, but she fit the bill. Because of her services I will recommend Coldwell Banker Services to everyone in the market looking for property. SG

Andrea, I want to thank you for all of the time, especially after normal business hours, you have me this week making it possible for me to move in this weekend. Things go so quickly these days, when I caught the ad after 20mins of being on the website I was excited. When I heard back from you I felt like won the jackpot. Got a scare when I heard there were already applications out there, but your diligence allowed me to get my application submitted in a timely fashion. It was a pleasure working with you. Go Gators. PS

I don’t think I would have made it through the horrible 203k loan process without my sales associate Leigh Jones. She was helpful and encouraging and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better!JW

My real estate agents were wonderful, responsive, helpful, and really on top of the market and what was happening specifically with the flood insurance changes to rates, etc.MM

Mike Hughes, Andrea Webb, and Jeff Shelton are the top firm in the Tampa market because of their market knowledge, client service levels, and overall coordination of the entire sales process.GE

Hughes Shelton was excellent in all aspects of their service and follow up. Honest and constructive feedback throughout the sales preparation and transactional processes was great – very helpful. Mike, Jeff, and team know how to get every ‘drop’ of value out of the properties they help sell. Great experience. RR

Jeff and Andrea were great to work with and could not have been more helpful. They went about and beyond multiple times during the search process and then were extremely helpful in the time leading up to the closing while coordinating repairs, etc. The day of closing had a bump that was not related to the purchase property, but Jeff and Andrea worked with us to make sure everything went extremely smooth so that everyone walked away happy at the end of the day. I can not say enough great things about the Hughes Shelton team.JD

TProfessional, responsive, and always there to meet my needs and answer questions. Absolutely Outstanding.MF

Andrea was more than helpful in every phase of the buying process, and even now after the purchase is complete. She kept the closing date on track. Further, she not only assisted me with anything I asked about, but she also had the initiative to get the ball rolling and complete tasks through all phases of the purchase process. I could not have imagined a better real estate agent. JW

TWE ARE THRILLED—-THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!! —I must tell you that of all the real estate transactions that (we) have been involved with this has been the most pleasant. Your guidance and help were truly a gift to us at a very hectic time. I don’t know how we could have managed otherwise. I hope we have the opportunity to see you again soon and thank you personally. Have a wonderful holiday season and love and very best wishes for the coming year.ML

TWe would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for all the effort you and Jeff and your team put into our house sale. We are well aware that some of your thoughtful moves and communications with all the various players were the difference between success and failure. Attached is a small token of thanks for you to enjoy however you deem appropriate. Please feel free to use both Patty and I as references to the solid “concierge” service that Hughes-Shelton provides. Thank you very much!MP

Here we are 6+ months post the sale of our home 4400 West Culbreath Avenue in Tampa and we are finally able to take a step back and truly appreciate your hard work and dedication. After buying with you in Tampa 5+ years ago, we knew we would come back to you for the sale of our home and what a great decision! Best thing we could ever have done to ensure the sale of our home at the best price possible. What a time to sell your house! Not only did the market become a challenge as the sign went up, but we had a few personal complications to add to the mix such as a move across the state with our 4 year old daughter and newborn son! Nothing you’ve not handled before, but for us it was a whirlwind. The only thing keeping me sane most days was the knowledge that you guys had the Tampa house covered. Your professionalism is unparalleled. Your follow-through is immediate. You call back a minute after the message was left. Your knowledge of the market is comprehensive and fact-based. You know how to get the best people in Tampa to put your house into “selling” shape. In the most basic sense you know how to sell a house and now-a-days that is an art. You two are the quintessential real estate investment experts. Thank you for your expertise. We are sorry to have left the area because if we could we would buy and sell again with your team every time. MS

We have bought and sold three properties with Mike and Jeff over the past ten years, and in the process, developed a friendship with these two incredibly honest, ethical, generous and fun-to-work-with people. Whether we’ve been the buyers or the sellers, Mike and Jeff have bent over backwards to make sure we’ve been very well-informed, and that we’ve made decisions that were best for US, regardless of the impact on them. The absence of any pressure whatsoever and the absolute commitment to their clients is what really sets them apart!TW

What a journey it has been! Many trips from New Hampshire to Florida, scores of calls, emails and voicemails! Had it not been for your focus and effort, we certainly would not have been able to accomplish our mission. In the end, we found an amazing home and completed one of the most important pieces of this transition to Tampa. None of this success would have been possible without your professional expertise. I cannot thank you enough. In all sales situations, true accomplishment comes from referrals from satisfied clients. Mark my word, our experience with you has set the stage for many other individuals that will land up coming to Tampa. They will only purchase Real Estate through you! Thank you again for “World Class Service”, our experience was phenomenal. MG
