Barbara and Ryan Ackerman are wonderful to work with. I feel that Barbara took the time to get to know both myself and my husband and really understood what we were looking for. She was always so patient in expressing to us that she will help us find what we were looking for after a long day of property looking. She covered all the bases on different locations and properties to give us an idea of what was available. They both were always so accommodating with their time, as we lived out of town and would be in Sarasota sporadically. They worked with us for months and were always so enjoyable to be around. They handled the negotiations of both buying a new property and selling (which I have to mention they sold our condo over a two-day period) which was quite thrilling for us.

Sure wish we could have used them in selling our house in another state!

Seller

Barbara and Ryan Ackerman were lifesavers! I had been trying to sell my Property (myself) for about ten months, to no avail. I made a call to Barbara, and she had my Property under contract within 1 week with an email blast to all of her clients and associates. It never even hit the MLS! In doing so, she brought me competing offers that resulted in a bidding war, where the winner ended up paying $50K over the asking price! I am still so impressed and grateful to Barbara and Ryan for stepping in and delivering beyond what I expected. Because of my experience, I fully appreciate the value of working with successful, real estate professionals like Barbara and Ryan Ackerman and will continue to do so moving forward. Thank you again Barb and Ry!

Everyone in The Ackerman Group was very courteous, professional, and always available to help. When I first called Barbara Ackerman about listing our home for sale, she returned my call within an hour and met with us personally the next day. Our home was probably in the lower range of the properties The Ackerman Group deals with, yet Barbara and Ryan always made us feel like we were their most important clients. Our home was sold in a short period of time for a fair market price. The Ackerman Group is the best!

The Ackerman Group handled the sale of my condo as though it was their own property. Barbara held my hand during the whole process. She was always available, never passed me on to an associate. She negotiated a great deal in a very competitive market. I did not know Barbara before this transaction but felt that she was my new best friend afterward. The Ackerman Group is top-notch!
