Pete and Cecilia, Wanted to drop you a note to share how pleased we were with your professional approach to the sale of our Verandah Home. After over a year on the market we re-listed with you and you both immediately took the ball and ran with it! Your photography was over the top, your social media marketing was way beyond what we expected and indeed what we previously experienced with the prior listing agents. You marketed our home as a home with its own special features not just another commodity that is controlled by price alone. For that we are very grateful because you sold our property for a fair price and at the end of the day that’s what makes a good deal. Again, thanks and be assured we will share our positive experience with all of our friends and acquaintances. John and Lyn Maher

"After being referred to Pete Biava to assist with our realty search in the Ft. Myers area, we found that he was different than any other realtors we had encountered.   He gained our trust as he asked very insightful questions and listened to our wants and needs.   This was important as we were conducting our search from the Mid-Atlantic region and virtually all aspects of our search was being done long-distance.  Not only did Pete conduct extensive research to advise us of our options, but he was very thorough, timely, and communicated extremely well throughout the process.  The tag-team of Pete and Cecilia could not be matched as they frequently recommended and visited prospective homesites giving us a tour by using “FaceTime” on their phone!  We never would have thought we would have purchased our home without seeing it in-person, but we trusted Pete and Cecilia so much, the first time we visited our new home was after we closed!      
I highly recommend engaging Pete and Cecilia Biava as their advice and sincerity gave us peace-of-mind throughout the entire process.  Could not be happier.”

"Working with Cecilia & Pete to purchase my vacation home was a delight. They were professional, thorough, easy to work with, kept me informed, and negotiated effectively to close the deal.  I continue to take every opportunity to refer friends to Cecilia & Pete.

Recently we had the experience of selling a property in New York and buying one in Fort Myers, and it was a perfect opportunity to compare the diverse differences between the two agents. Cecilia Biava was , by far , the superior of the two in virtually every aspect of the process. Cecilia truly guided us through every step of the transaction even though the sale was done entirely long distance. She was thorough, prompt, pleasant, helpful and always available to answer questions and see to the details. My husband and I would enthusiastically recommend Cecilia when and if ever the opportunity were to arise. She was the consummate professional.

We have been through the home purchasing process many times in the past, and I must say the experience we had with our Realtor, Cecilia Biava, was outstanding. She was extremely accommodating and understanding of our needs and found us the perfect home. She patiently walked us through the purchasing process and was totally accessable at all times. Cecilia sincerely cares about her clients and we could not have been happier with the service she provided us.

We are very happy that we chose Cecilia and Pete Biava to list our Pebblebrook condo at Verandah. They are very knowledgeable about the Florida market and particularly the Verandah community. The price that they set was a good asking price and everyone was satisfied at the end of the deal. The details of the sale were all handled very professionally and conveniently for us, and we have nothing but praise for the Biava team.

Having Cecilia as our real estate agent was a phenomenal decision! Me & my husband were first time homebuyers & didn't know how do to much of anything as far as how the process went etc & Cecilia walked us through every step with a smile on her face . She took us to view all the homes we were interested in & when we found our dream house she made it top priority to do everything she could to help us get it. All in all best experience & she is highly recommended. !!!

Steve and I recently sold a home and purchased a new home in the Ft. Myers area.  We just want to say how pleased we were with the outstanding customer service you both provided during the process. We have had many real estate transactions through the years and can honestly say that none of our other realtors compare. You both worked very hard on our behalf as was evident in your availability, responsiveness and thorough research.  Any questions or concerns we had were always addressed immediately thus we felt confident everything was being covered. Thank you for guiding us through the process.  There is no doubt that if we are ever in need of a realtor again, you will be the first we call!

My wife and I were first time home buyers and worked with Cecilia to purchase our first home. Cecilia was incredibly professional, helpful and knowledgeable. She was available to answer questions at all times of the day (including weekends) and fought for our interests every step of the way. We ran into quite a few snags during the process but Cecilia was able to help us through each one. We honestly could not have done it without her. If you want a home buying expert that will fight for you, this is your agent.
