Being new to Florida, we had no idea where to start......Kari was fantastic in helping us find our home, she made sure to show us the homes that had the features we were most interested in, while keeping it in our budget! From start to finish she was always a text or call away; promptly responding to any question we had. Great experience throughout! Definitely recommend !

Kari Battaglia became know to us through her website. Her strong credentials , her well appointed website and speaking directly with her convinced my husband and me that she would be the perfect Real Estate Broker for us. Kari was presented with the task of working with us from “out of state”, and with very specific guidelines of what we were looking for. Our knowledge of Venice from previously living there; helped us pick the areas we wanted to look in, but to find just that “perfect house” could be a challenge. Kari gave it her all! Long hours of searching, daily updates, her honesty and integrity throughout the whole process and her most valuable knowledge in all phases of real estate was so impressive and paid off in the end. As a Broker working for us; she went the “extra mile” with helping us in many areas that she wasn’t responsible for, in order to make our dream come true. If you are looking for that”special” Real Estate Broker, with a caring manner, integrity and a true professional; I urge you to call Kari Battaglia. She is the type of person I would be proud to also call a friend. She really is that great! We would use Kari again without question and we will recommend her to anyone we know who needs an expert in Buying or Selling a home. You would be doing yourself a favor by giving Kari your business.
