What Are People
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
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".
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.

& 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
If ever the
day comes when we need a realtor you can be sure we will again call 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

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,
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.
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.
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.
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
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

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.
in touch Michelle and thank you for everything.
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
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
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.
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!

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,
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.

these two Outstanding people, we did a major move from out of state that seemed
almost effortless. Doug and Michelle are Top Notch at what they do in
taking care of their clients. They were there to answer all of our real estate
needs and they will go the extra mile. Trust me!

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.
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.
thanks to both of them.

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.
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.
Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
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.
