TESTIMONIALS – What her clients are saying:
Norma helped us market and sell our condo on Longboat Key. The process from start to finish was professional, well thought through and expertly managed. Norma was proactive in terms of marketing ideas, she spent valuable time up front getting to know what we were looking for and was realistic with us about what we could expect. Her local knowledge and wide network helped quickly gather potential clients and the process from offer to close was helped by her guidance and counsel. Great Job Norma and thanks!!

We had decided to find a home in Florida through the internet. I met Norma over the phone. Norma went out of her way to accommodate my husband and I. Norma went to look at houses we were interested in and to our surprise she sent back videos. She took videos inside and out doors and around the street to show what type of neighborhood the house was located in. Her professionalism gave us the insight we needed beyond what was on paper. She kept us grounded and finally we got what we wanted. Norma is extremely good in keeping the paperwork in order and on schedule. She is incredibly responsive to all our questions and very flexible. She is not there to just make a sale she takes her job seriously and you will love her work ethics. Norma has been awesome in our house search. She was there for us when appraiser and Inspectors went to check the house out. She sent us back videos and feedback from all that was going on with the house. Buying a house via internet is not the best way, but with Norma it is a lot less nerve wracking; its like you are there with her! She is an experienced realtor with good customer service skills with profound and honest feedback on houses and neighborhoods. She has a knack of being comforting and gracious. She went the extra mile to make things clear in making good decisions. She speaks Spanish also. I can't recommend her enough!!! She's awesome. 5 Stars is not enough to speak of her excellence!

Norma, thank you so much for helping us sell our home! Your efforts to effectively market and negotiate a strong sale for us was very impressive. We both found your communication with us key, being out of the area, as this helped take the stress out of the home selling process. We have several other rental properties we will be liquidating over the next few years and you are our girl! Thank you for everything!

When we arrived in Florida, we had never met Ms. Mladineo. We had only communicated via email. We randomly selected her name from a list of Michael Saunders agents. Over several months, she kept in contact with regular communication. Once we arrived she immediately contacted us and has been wonderful with her efforts to meet our difficult requirements. She has been totally professional and worked hard on our behalf. I would gladly recommend Norma to a good friend.
I'm trying to buy a property long distance and Norma is my legs and eyes right now...she's very responsive and helpful. I appreciate all that she is doing for me. I'm looking forward to making a trip to Sarasota and meeting her in person.| 5|Happy client!
By far, the best experience ever! Norma task pride in what she does. She has an exceptional way to make you feel special. As a first time home buyer; I love the way she explains every step of the process. She has definitely become my realtor and friend for life!!
