I'll equally suggest Skylinet. Communicative, responsive, and pleasant to work with.

We just dealt with a very shady and unethical realtor
here in the areas you mention. We have a law suit
pending so I dont want to elaborate further. What I
will mention, is GET HOA DOCUMENTS UPFRONT, and have
a lawyer review them. The condo market here is so bloated
it seems some realtors will go to any lengths to unload one.
Be very careful. This is no NC

It was a combination of both, but the broker and the sellers agent are
who who we are filing against. Our agent assumed the deal was done
and took off to Europe after we signed the contract leaving us at the
mercy of the sellers agent and broker. Basically, to give a Cliff Notes
version, our FlaBar contract specified -->ALL<-- HOA documents were
to be handed over within three days of contract. We did get some
documents, one was a thick package that required a lot of signatures
and also a generic sheet the realtors give to perspective buyers
explaining some of the rules like parking ,etc..... 10 days after the
signing of the contract, we do an inspection and the 'real' HOA manifest
is on the kitchen table and the agent wants us to sign a paper
saying we got it. Huh ??!? Its huge and filled with stuff that is
unacceptable to us. We cancel the contract but under threat of
lawsuit from seller, we waive our right to deposit and fees. We have
no council or representation to help us out with this. Later, after
consulting a legal agency, they agree with my assessment that the
sellers agent and broker broke the contract on the fourth day by not
presenting the 'real' Covenant within the three days specified by
the contract THEY signed off on, making anything after that null
and void, including the waiver. Other realtors I spoke to also
said they get the actual, big covenant right up front, before even
drawing up a contract so this stuff doesn't happen. Im angry the
sellers agent and broker withheld the big book but sent over the
other stuff. This to me is premeditated deception.

Yes, you are indeed 'Not in Kansas anymore.' Florida is the playground for rip off artist. Please do yourself a favor and hire a real estate attorney, not tomorrow but today, before making another move or signing any more documents. Ask if the attorney is certified by the Florida Bar and ASK FOR PROOF. Walk away if he or she is not. You are a tiny tadpole swimming in the shark pool. But with the assistance of an attorney, the other parties will no longer be able to continue taking advantage of you. You cannot afford to think in terms of the expense of hiring an attorney. By hiring an attorney, you will save not only money in the long run, but the associated stress of being taken advantage of.

I suggest dealing with a company that has a proven long-term track record. These companies can be found either in the yellow pages or on the internet. You can be confident dealing with a nationally known company. Be careful when choosing a realtor, especially in our state. Many of them lack the knowlege and experience to guide you through this complicated process. You need someone with proven experience not only to help find a house, but also one who can steer you to those who can guide you through the closing.

Good luck with your research and keep posting.
