Before I hired Amy to sell a condo in Highland Beach, I interviewed three agents. Amy impressed me with her knowledge of all the buildings in Highland Beach and throughout the sale her knowledge proved to be very valuable. Her suggestions regarding improvements to market the property were on target and helped generate a large number of showings and a quick sale. I found Amy to be extremely ethical, honest, conscientious and hard working. She is also a good listener and effective communicator. I was an absentee owner and she did an especially good job of keeping me informed of showings and reactions from potential buyers. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to buy or sell in Highland Beach.

Bought a home in 2011.
Our experience with Amy was 5-star. By familiarizing herself with our needs and preferences, she was able to show us a number of listings which met our criteria. Her knowledge of the area and listings was impeccalble, and her readiness to meet with us at any time, made our search much easier, and even enjoyable. She succeeded in finding us a property which is a dream come true.
Thank you, Amy.
My wife and I worked with Amy Blake in December 2010 and she was fantastic. Within 3 days we saw over 20 condos. It only took her a few showings for her to figure out what we were looking for. She helped us find a home inspector and helped us negotiate a price we were comfortable with. We closed on Feb. 10, 2011. I would highly recommend Amy Blake. Thanks, Amy
We used Amy to help us find a luxury ($3-$6 million) home in the Boca area. Since we currently live in Boston, it was important to have good follow up. We used Zillow for I-pad to identify several houses we might be interested in, and Amy arranged showings for us. During a three month period, we visited Florida 5 times to look at homes. Eventually, we found a house we were interested in, and made an offer that we considered fair (near the Zestimate and assessed value.) It took a lot of convincing to get the sellers to lower their expectations, as they had purchased in a stronger market and would have to take a loss on the home. Amy did the homework to assemble the comps, and to (politely) keep regular pressure on the sellers, repeatedly sending them new comps and recent sales and listings that supported a lower price. In the end, we did not wind up purchasing the home, because the sellers would not met our price expecations, but Amy got them very, very close. During the process, Amy showed us several other alternative houses, which were interesting and consistent with our requirements. Unfortunately, we did not end up purchasing a home through Amy because we found a beautiful property on the west coast of Florida (outside her market). Amy was very professional about losing out on a sale; she understands that good work will eventually pay off through referrals or future business. We would recommend Amy very highly. She is exceptionally diligent. Since we were looking in several markets, we worked with several other brokers who would send occasional emails or unsolicited computer-generated market updates. Amy's follow-up was frequent and tailored to what we were looking for. She took the effort to understand what we were looking for, and was always trying to find a way to move things forward for us. If you want personalized, attentive service, and diligent follow-up, Amy is the best
I had a great experience with Amy Blake. I was looking for a waterfront condominium in or around Highland Beach. Amy was very knowledgeable and insightful about the various properties available. She worked tiredlessly until she found me the perfect condo. She helped negotiate an excellent price. She guided me through the inspection, as well as, all the paperwork involved in the closing. Even after the closing she has been a great resource for finding a handy man, housekeeper, electrician,etc. Everyone she recommends has been very reliable. My whole experience could not have been better. I have no hesitation in recommending Amy.
I met Amy last February in Highland Beach. Having studied the market on internet and favoring a condo on the ocean I asked Amy to visit a few condos on the ocean and the canal in my price range. Also since I had done quite a bit of homework and knowing the area,I told her that I wished to go pretty fast visiting. Well she was prepared, with good choices for me to look at and compare and noticed quite fast that by the ocean was what I wanted. I appreciated the fact that she listened to what I said, she was well prepared, available and did an excellent job representing me with the listing agent and sellers. She is not afraid of work! I will recommend her for sure if I have the opportunity and I would use her again if I needed a top notch agent with good work ethics. Thank you Amy
