Rae is not only a real estate professional with many years of experience; she is also a caring and concerned counselor and a delight to work with. She knows all of the ins and outs of her business, and has an amazing knowledge of the territory she serves. We had very specific requirements as to the kind of house we were looking for, and as she steered us to each possibility, she educated us as to what questions to ask and what details to look for and to avoid. Without hesitation, we are pleased to recommend Rae to any and all prospective condo or homebuyers in Naples.

Ruth and Don Epstein

My husband and I have purchased two homes and sold one home with Rae. Her knowledge of the Naples area and market made the decision to purchase in Naples and use Rae as our Realtor an easy decision. Her staging recommendations significantly enhanced our condo’s appearance and definitely contributed to selling it within 10 days. She is extremely professional and knows all the nuances of Florida real estate, real estate laws and the process. Rae has an extensive resource list that made the inspection process and closing painless. She is truly a pleasure to work with and her follow through is exceptional. My husband and I would recommend Rae when purchasing or selling a home.

Jodi and Michael Harger

Dear Rae, Just a note to thank you for your help with the sale of our house in Naples. Your professionalism and attention to detail really sets you apart from other Realtors. Everyone who saw the photos you had taken of our house commented on both the quality and how the photos showed each room in the most attractive manner possible. You also kept us informed with weekly updates and emails and answered any questions that came up along the way through the sale and beyond. Thanks again for everything.

We found Nicola to be honest, knowledgeable of listing and location. Excellent booklets that were professional and comprehensive. She anticipated a question and understood our needs and desires. Nicola worked with us more than 6 months and we were not the easiest to work with. She is a great sales person and we have recommended her to others. We think Nicola is the best.

Hal and Beverly Price

Nicola is by far the best real estate agent we have ever encountered. Her high level of real estate knowledge coupled with her easy going personality are perfect together. We will definitely use her in the future!

Sue and Mike

Nicola Wakelin is a true professional. We appreciated her thoroughness, attention to detail, active listening, high level of personalized customer service and friendly demeanor. She made us feel li…ke we were her most important client. Her customer service level exceeded all of our expectations. She was always very timely in all of her communications whether email, text or phone. We appreciate the amount of time she devoted to showing us the many attributes that attracted us to Naples. We were very satisfied with her level of real estate knowledge. She suggested appropriate communities based on our preferences and continually sought our feedback on properties to best understand what was most important to us. Her photos and updates helped us feel connected to our new home as we were out of state during the building process. Her assistance throughout the entire interstate move process was invaluable. Nicola has made a significant impact on our life. Her knowledge, experience and time spent with us was invaluable throughout the construction, design and relocation process. Our transition of moving was much less stressful. Due to her knowledge of the area and the Riverstone community, we know we made the right choices and look forward to many happy years! We would absolutely highly recommend her!!! Nicola is “the” realtor we work with on our next real estate transaction.

Anne and Michael Drumstas

From the start of the home buying process to the very end, Nicola was attentive, attuned to our needs and very professional in her approach. We feel very fortunate to have had her as our agent.

Mary Jo and Pete

Rae Wakelin became a partner and friend from the day we contracted services with her. Extremely capable in every area. Nicola Wakelin was dependable in updating material and gladly representing us at the buyer’s inspection. Both agents worked for us in a simultaneous buy and sell. They paved the rough road and made a difficult transition less stressful.

The Moores

It has been a pleasure to work with Rae as our Buyers Agent. Her in-depth knowledge of the local real estate market proved invaluable, and her help and guidance after our purchase with local trades and information was outstanding. We have recommended her services to many of our friends who are now considering a purchase in Naples.

Morris Cooper

We recently moved to Naples from San Francisco. This was our retirement move, and thus we were able to look at a number of areas throughout the country for that “perfect” location. In each locale, we worked with experienced realtors who were extremely helpful. We chose Naples for a number of reasons, and our decision was helped by the excellent support and guidance provided to us by Rae Wakelin. Rae was professional and thorough in her efforts to find us an ideal home. She knew the area well and she listened carefully to determine just what we were looking for. She facilitated the negotiations and closing process, introduced us to service people, and helped make the move go smoothly. We heartily recommend Rae to help you with your house hunting endeavors.

Dianne and Gary Sable

In a tough market Rae Wakelin communicated well with us about the market, the competion and how to tweak our property for better presentation. Rae was positive when we wavered about the sale. Somehow she found a cash buyer and led us through the negotiating and closing processes to a completion of the sale, all while we were up north.

Steve Roberts

Georgia and I had asked Rae Wakelin from Amerivest Realty in Naples FL to help us find property, which would meet our requirements: specifically our budget, and a convenient location. Our communication with Rae was done over a year’s period of time by telephone and internet. The reason for this was that we lived in New Hampshire and were unable to visit Naples to view properties for sale.

Rae became our trusted eyes and her invaluable knowledge of the area, plus her many years of experience as a buyer’s agent was successful in finding us our condo.

Rae represented us in the negotiations, which included our buying furniture from the seller, negotiating with the seller’s agent, being present for and asking questions about items on the Home Inspection Report. She made arrangements to have our air conditioning unit charged, having a new lock put on our front door, and putting a key to our home on the night we were to arrive, so we did not have to spend a night in a hotel. She also wanted to be present when we arrived to let us in to our new place as we bought it, sight unseen.

Rae proved to be very trustworthy to fulfill our requirements and even exceeded them! Our new home in Naples shocked and surprised us because it was more than perfect for us and it was all through the efforts and patience of Rae Wakelin.

Rae has visited us several times in the month that we have lived here to make sure that we were happy and to see if there is anything else that she could do to insure we were comfortable or needed.

We would not hesitate to anyone looking to purchase property or to sell for that matter, that they contact Rae Wakelin.
