What Are People
Saying About Us?

Dear Doug & Michelle:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a very professional, thorough & exhaustive search for our new home. From my first contact with you, 6 months prior to our purchase, through the closing, we couldn't have been happier.

The flow of information on Port Charlotte and the house information you emailed us back in Atlanta was great in helping us decide exactly what we could expect for our money in the Port Charlotte area. Then knowing that our buying trip was short and time of the essence, your email showing us the 15 houses that you had setup viewing appointments for us, was most helpful in our preparation.

I know that me being a realtor in Atlanta didn't make your jobs any easier. You both handled our three simultaneous offers like champs. In just 3 short days in Port Charlotte we left with the house of our dreams. Today, when someone asks us how we found our secluded home, we tell them, "We could never have done it without or Realtors, Michelle & Doug Bry".

Thanks again for all your help. Kay and I are sure you will have a very successful career in Real Estate. Your knowledge of the area, real estate law, your caring attitude and your extraordinary computer skills will serve you well.

Best regards,
Kay and Bill McLeod

Dear Doug & Michelle Bry:

Thank you so much for helping us find the house we always wanted in Florida. We tried many times with other agencies and found your help the best of all. Your tireless efforts and your availability to us to help us find a house and also after through all the endless details needed before closing, you were always there for us and we appreciated it. We closed on our house from N.J. and didn't even have to fly down. We are now happily retired in our new home in sunny Florida and loving it. Thanks so much.

When we were planning to relocate to Florida from Illinois, we had the good fortune to have Doug and Michelle Bry from Coldwell Banker, Sunstar Realty, Inc. as our realtors. We told them our wants, don't wants and price range. They did more than was expected of them in helping us find our house and making sure all of the paper work was completed on time for us to make our move. We now reside in a lovely house that meets our needs in an area that we wanted to live in.

If ever the day comes when we need a realtor you can be sure we will again call Doug and Michelle.

Doug and Michelle were the buyers representative when my wife and I bought waterfront property in the summer of 2000. Michelle handled all the negotiations and purchase agreement details deftly even though I live 1700 miles away. If she was out of the office when I called, Doug was always available to deal with my concerns. I was so satisfied that when asked by friends about whom I dealt with I referred them to the Brys. My friends had the same level of satisfaction with their purchase.

Due to an unusual set of circumstances, the most critical of which being Doug and Michelle Bry's expertise as a team of real estate agents, we were able to purchase in record time and at a fair price the exact Florida home we had identified after eight months of Internet research conducted from Cleveland, Ohio.

We began looking on the Internet for our new retirement home in Florida in May of 2000. At the beginning of our search, we had almost no knowledge of Southwest Florida. So, we labored for months with various Internet sites and accumulated an extensive library of real estate information on an area stretching from Ocala to Fort Myers. Finally, in September 2000 we fixed a date for a combined 10-day vacation and on-site search in January 2001, right at the onset of the peak real estate season. Then we contacted several real estate agents in the areas of interest to us.

After receiving preliminary information from various agencies and adding them to our previous pool of data, we began finalizing our criteria and eliminating the weaker locations and agencies. Through this gradual and tedious process, we narrowed the locality of interest further down and made our final selection of real estate agency in mid-October 2000. The team of Doug and Michelle Bry won our business over a field of about half-a-dozen potential contenders.

There were two main factors that influenced our final selection of a real estate agency. First, there was the locality we seemed to favor most after giving due consideration of all the demographic data we had digested: Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, and North Port. Second, there was the unparalleled Internet expertise demonstrated by Doug and Michelle Bry, combined with the level of attention they were willing to give us from the very start. They were the only team technically capable of keeping up with our methodology and thoroughness of research. Their website was always the most complete and current one, even during the chaotic transition period when the multiple listing system (MLS) was being totally revamped in the area. And, as we later learned, many of the other agencies in the Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, and North Port area relied heavily on Doug and Michelle's website for their own business activities during this frustrating period of time.

As January 2001 and the time of our 10-day on-site visit approached, we prepared a ranked list of 28 potential homes which we sent to Doug and Michelle to plan our tour. They added 5 more homes that met our specifications and became available in the last few days before our arrival in Florida. Thanks to our thorough knowledge of both the community and the housing market acquired through the Internet, Doug and Michelle were able to schedule 33 homes for us to visit in the short time span of 2 days. In fact, our Internet research proved to be so complete and accurate that our deliberation process with each of the homes we visited was extremely easy. There were almost no surprises -- an amazing credit to the power of the Internet and the completeness of Doug and Michelle's listings. As a result, by the end of our second day on site we were able to make an acceptable offer on the No.1 home we had selected even before coming to Florida.

As Doug and Michelle Bry expressed to us on the third day of our visit, "the outcome of this case was very unusual." We owe it to both our own thoroughness of preparation and to Doug and Michelle's extraordinary expertise as a team of real estate agents. And since we successfully concluded our home purchase so early, we were able to enjoy eight full days of vacation -- double the amount of time we had anticipated, which added even more to our enjoyment of the experience.

We got tired of the very fast paced life in New York. We wanted a quieter lifestyle where we can actually not put a time on family time. We decided to visit Sarasota and Punta Gorda based on articles we've read about their being the best place to raise a family. Since we really wanted a complete quiet environment, we thought Sarasota was a bit too busy for us. We were just about to give up relocating to Florida, when we decided to contact Michelle. Michelle was very pleasant and thus convinced us to check out Punta Gorda. She knew what we were looking for and took us to a country setting that reminded us of the movie "Oklahoma". We and our children are very happy to be Punta Gorda residents thanks to Michelle and Doug.

We'll keep in touch Michelle and thank you for everything.


Having been a Real Estate Broker for many years in the state of Colorado, I fully appreciate your dedication to do the right job for your clients. I consider it difficult for a realtor to deal with both the buyer & seller fairly, however with honesty and integrity, with consideration for both parties, the difficulty evaporates.

I appreciate the fact that you people have these qualities and both Loretta and I thank you two for handling the sale of property just the way we think it should be handled.

We will continue to recommend you whenever we have the opportunity.

I am writing this letter on behalf of Doug and Michelle Bry, realtors for Coldwell Banker - Sunstar Realty, Inc.

Doug and Michelle are very efficient and well organized in everything they do. They are very creative in their marketing, not only mailing beautiful brochures to clients and fellow realtors, but they also do excellent advertising on the Internet. Doug and Michelle go out of their way to find the "home of your dreams" for you. They spend time talking with you to see what your needs are and they also give of themselves freely to show you what you want. They truly work good together and their abilities are outstanding. They found us our new home and sold our old home all within one month! Whether you are buying or selling your home, you will never find a couple more dedicated to meeting your needs. I highly recommend Doug and Michelle Bry!

Doug and Michelle were very courteous and saw to our every need when helping us find the perfect home. We will, without hesitation, refer other interested home buyers to Doug and Michelle. We will certainly contact them when we are in the market for another home. Thank you Doug and Michelle for your excellent, professional service.

Thanks again,
Jason and Angel

When we found out that we would be transferring to another part of Florida we knew we would have to sell our house in Port Charlotte. We began the process by interviewing several realtors in the area. When we talked to Doug and Michelle, we knew that we did not have to talk to anyone else. They handled the sale of our house in every aspect. We really didn't have to do anything except sign the papers. Since moving to another area of Florida, we have started looking at houses to buy and good realtors to deal with. Almost a year later we have not found either. Doug and Michelle we wish you were here.
Thank you for everything that you did for us.

Dear Don, (Donald Randolph, Owner, Sunstar Realty)

Doug and Michelle Bry are real "Pros". We live in Fort Lauderdale and know very little about the real estate market in Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte. Doug and Michelle possess a unique knowledge of that area, combined with professionalism and caring, which sets them apart from the "masses". They readily grasped our Real Estate requirements and went to work matching them. What started out as "house hunting" ended with a "water lot" purchase and the personal introduction to several quality builders in the area.

There weren't many questions or concerns Doug and Michelle couldn't answer. If not, they quickly went to the correct sources and found the information to answer them. It is a pleasure and a rare experience to work with the Brys.

A "big" thanks to both of them.

Bob Cipolla and Sandi Cabeza

We have seldom worked with such professional and accommodating agents as Doug and Michelle Bry. They actually listened to what we were looking for and how much we could afford then showed us homes that qualified. They didn't try to sell us something we couldn't afford and checked for new listings daily.

We were in contact with Doug and Michelle long distance by both phone and e-mail before we met them personally. They suggested a mortgage lender that pre-approved our loan and provided the easiest mortgage closing we have ever witnessed. Doug and Michelle handled everything for us in Port Charlotte after we had left.

We would highly recommend anyone looking for property in the Charlotte County area to contact Doug and Michelle. If you don't you will miss a very pleasant opportunity.

After spending over 10 yrs. in Florida we decided to sell our Pt. Charlotte home. Not having any dealing with a real estate company we picked a well known one. We were very fortunate to have a husband and wife team to market our home. They did a great job and it sold very fast. If you ever think of selling or purchasing a home I fully recommend Doug and Michelle Bry with RE/MAX Harbor Realty, Inc., who will help you on any of your needs.

I do miss going to Florida and our little home we had there.
