Testimonials from our Customers
Great pleasure working with Joanne Cerreta and Golden Bear Realty!
It has been a great pleasure working with Joanne Cerreta. She is the consummate professional, proactive, knowledgeable and detail oriented; it is apparent that she takes great pride in her work and in enjoys going the distance for her clients. I look forward to the opportunity in working with her again soon. 5 STARS!!
A job well done!
I just wanted to thank Allyson Pereverzoff for a job well done and also for handling all the questions I had about the mistakes the other Realtor made. I love my new home and thanks for making a crazy situation a lot easier than I thought.
Greg Poore possesses great knowledge of the local real estate market!
I cannot find sufficient words to describe my experience with Greg Poore in both purchasing and eventually selling my family home. He has represented me both as a buyer and as a seller. Greg is the consummate real estate professional, who addresses all transactions from a very human and spiritual perspective coupled with a keen business acumen. He is a local resident, who has lived in the area for decades. He possesses great knowledge of the local real estate market, of financing options and of other relevant real estate issues, necessary to smooth transition on both sides of real estate sales and purchases. Recently, when Greg aided me and my family with the sale of my family home, I was extremely stressed as a single father facing financial challenges. Greg simplified the sales process for me and walked me through every obstacle that naturally arose during the sales period. In addition, I had to find very quickly, a rental suitable for me and my two children within my children’s school district. Greg walked us into a great, new family home within two weeks of being advised of the closing date on my home. He was the voice of reason and a solid guide when I became frustrated with the process. Greg will remain, not only my realtor for future real estate transactions, but as importantly, Greg has become a friend to my family.
Working with Kate (Wetherby) was truly like having my own "Golden Bear"!
Working with Kate (Wetherby) was truly like having my own "Golden Bear". Selling my house in this recovering market presented unique challenges and Kate guided me through choices to create the best outcome possible, with more than a little moral support along the way! I didn't feel I had to choose between being "human" and doing business, and that's how I prefer to live. Thankyouthankyouthankyou!
Jimmy always puts his clients first!
While spending three months in West Palm Beach this winter, my husband and I decided to look into purchasing a condominium in the area. We were very fortunate to find Jimmy Jimenez, a Realtor with Golden Bear Realty. He spared no effort in showing us condominiums and neighborhoods until we found the one that we liked. Weekends or time of day didn't matter. Jimmy always puts his clients first. We found him extremely efficient and prompt with paperwork and answering any questions we had. We did our closing from out of town and again , Jimmy was in touch with us regarding every detail and the closing went smoothly. Our property needs some renovation and here again, Jimmy was very helpful in advising /connecting us to the right persons for the job and still drops in from time to time to see how things are going. Being from out of town, we truly appreciate this. My husband and I have already recommended Jimmy to friends and family who may be interested in purchasing property in The Palm Beach area. When Jimmy says "I want you to be happy with your purchase", he truly means it.
Maribeth is a very knowledgeable, hard-working Realtor!
Maribeth is a very knowledgeable, hard-working Realtor. When my husband and I were looking for a house, she worked tirelessly to find properties that met our needs and worked with our schedules to set up times to see the properties. She stayed in close contact with us, alerting us when new properties were available. She was also able to help with a rental property we own, quickly finding us tenants to rent and negotiated the monthly rental price to our satisfaction. I would highly recommend Maribeth to all of my friends and acquaintances.
Your professionalism and integrity throughout the process made the deal much more manageable!
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate Steve Hart of Golden Bear Realty in his cooperation in completing the sale of the John's Island property in Vero Beach. Your professionalism and integrity throughout the process made the deal much more manageable for all parties, especially considering the numerous counter offers we worked through. Having auctioned many multi-million dollar properties, I have worked with many real estate agents in this arena. You are among the most competent and diligent I have had the pleasure of dealing with. I would gladly recommend you to any client shopping for a luxury home.
Maribeth Cantwell sold my Jupiter home in Egret Landing in a week!
Maribeth Cantwell sold my Jupiter home in Egret Landing in a week. I interviewed a total of three Realtors, and decided to list with Maribeth. The other Realtors were very qualified as well, but I had a good feeling about Maribeth. She came in and staged my house with many of her own things, and worked very hard to get my house to look good for a showing. She sold it at the second open house. She was extremely helpful every step of the way, and I believe went way above and beyond what a Realtor is required to do. I highly recommend Maribeth Cantwell for any of your real estate needs.
Lynda provided appropriate guidance as we looked at each property!
Lynda Robbins was recommended to me by a business associate and after a short meeting she was able to identify units that best fit my criteria. Lynda provided appropriate guidance as we looked at each property. Once the decision was made Lynda guided me through the offer process and provided the correct analysis for a successful offer. She also assisted in the financing and closing and provided support for the entire purchase experience.
Gina Wilson persevered tremendously!
Gina Wilson persevered tremendously in helping my son and I purchase our property in Loxahatchee. We honestly could not have acquired it without her.
You have been such a pleasure to work with!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done to help us find our dream home! Linda Gallant been such a pleasure to work with, and we have enjoyed getting to know her and Kevin as much more than a Realtor, but as friends! We are excited to start this new chapter and can't wait to invite you over to our new home.
At all times Lynda has kept my best interests as her main focus!
Lynda Robbins of Golden Bear Realty has been my Realtor for the past 3 years. She has assisted me through all aspects of the real estate spectrum from purchasing new property to finding tenants for my rental property. At all times Lynda has kept my best interests as her main focus and has always gone the extra mile. Recently, speaking to my tenants and hearing nice comments as to how professional Lynda interacted with them, ensures me that I'm teamed with the right person. For all your Realtor needs I would highly recommend Lynda Robbins as your go to person.
It was an excellent working relationship.
My mother recently moved to an independent living facility for the elderly. This left me with an entire household of goods to distribute and dispose of, as well as selling the house. The procedure was complicated and time consuming. The house was in need of repairs as it had not been updated in 21 years. The thought of doing all this was exhausting. Thankfully our real estate agent, Lori Claussen, was able to point us in the right direction for all these things which took much of the confusion out of the situation.
The communication with Lori was excellent. The advertising was comprehensive. The closing could have been complicated since I was acting as POA for my mother but with Lori’s help it went very smoothly. It was an excellent working relationship. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of a pleasant, intelligent, comprehensive agent to sell their home or property.
I highly recommend Karen Evans to buyers and sellers.
Karen has been my Realtor since 2004. She listed and sold a house for me in Boca Raton, then found another house for me to buy, then sold that one and in all cases she achieved the best possible prices for me. We have concluded 4 deals together and I have been pleased with the results on all of them.
Karen takes a business minded approach to real estate and she is a great negotiator. She's intelligent, experienced, patient and talented in marketing. I highly recommend Karen to buyers and sellers. If you want the best, call Karen.
Allyson educated me on the local market!
Allyson Pereverzoff of Golden Bear Realty helped me find my new home quickly after assessing my needs and wants. She educated me on the local market and steered me in the right direction. She was also very helpful assisting with my needs in finding reasonable temporary housing while in transition to the area.
My Realtor for life...
Gail Mills of Golden Bear Realty attention to detail and customer service was second to none. Each day she continued to exceed my expectations. Gail will be my Realtor for life and will be getting all my referrals after selling me a home in Jupiter at Jonathan's Landing.
Your agent needs to have skill and experience!
There are thousands of real estate agents out there, some very good and some very bad, but only one can be the best. We feel that Greg is that one person because of his ability to close the deal and his immense help after that deal is closed. During our lives, we have had around a dozen agents buy and sell homes for us but none did this as well as Greg.
One of the most important traits that you should look for in a real estate agent is the way that they can negotiate an offer. If the house is fairly priced, it will sell itself. You will get offers, sometimes several. Your agent is the one person that needs to have the skill and experience, at this point of the selling process, to actually SELL your house. This is one of many areas that Greg excels in. We had our house sold three times this year for the EXACT same price. The difference between this time and the other two was that Greg was our agent.
We were amazed at the quick sale of our property!
Particularly given the status of the current market, we were amazed at real estate agent Gail Mills' results with the quick sale of our property in Jupiter, Florida. The overall service and effort on the project was that, which we had never experienced in South Florida.
Jimmy's attention to detail and responsiveness are what make him a true professional and a pleasure
Jimmy Jiminez of Golden Bear Realty worked with Donna and myself in January of 2013; we had Jimmy show us a condo in Mariners Cove in Palm Beach Gardens. He did some research and found us a property in the same complex, which we ended up purchasing. The network of professionals that Jimmy has was extremely helpful in the closing process. This would not of happened if it were not for his team working hard to get the deal done. Jimmy's attention to detail and responsiveness are what make him a true professional and a pleasure to work with. I would not have a problem recommending Jimmy to anyone looking to purchase or sell real estate.
Loyal, Courteous, and Professional
My wife and I would like to acknowledge the outstanding service we received from your agent Lynda Robbins regarding the purchase and successful closing of our Jupiter Island condominium at "Cliveden". Lynda has represented us for the past several years securing winter rentals. So, it was natural to look to her to help us find a permanent condominium home.
We were impressed by her knowledge of the area where we concentrated our search and her persistence in keeping us abreast of what was happening in terms of listings available. Once we zeroed in on our purchase, Lynda provided able assistance not only in the negotiations with the listing broker but also identifying other professionals, such as our attorney, in assisting us in the transaction.
Without question, Lynda has proven to be loyal, courteous, and professional throughout our dealings with her. I commend your brokerage for having Lynda on your team.
Jimmy's mixture of professionalism, dedication, knowledge, and personality made him a pleasure...
Acquainting ourselves with West Palm Beach while visiting our son has been such a wonderful experience. So much so, my husband and I decided to buy a condominium in West Palm Beach. I can't express enough the major role Jimmy Jiminez played in the purchase of our condominium. Especially because from the start to finish the complete real estate transaction took place by phone from Oregon. Jimmy's mixture of professionalism, dedication, knowledge, and personality made him a pleasure to work with. He was always a phone call away and made the process seem easy. He went far and beyond what was required to accomplish what was needed to meet the end results.
Our experience with Lynda Robbins of Golden Bear Realty has been phenomenal
Our experience with Lynda Robbins of Golden Bear Realty has been phenomenal. She is extremely intelligent and insightful, pays attention to detail, and her follow-through on even the smallest request, is just great. Lynda truly cares about her clients, and always gives 110%, to make sure everyone is pleased and comfortable. I would highly recommend Lynda to my family, friends, and business associates, as one of the best Realtors I have come in contact with throughout the years.
I have never had a better real estate experience!
Of my many real estate transactions, I have never had a better real estate experience. Linda Blackwell's saavy knowledge of the market, and her impeccable attention to detail with superior follow through are simply over the top.
This review is unsolicited and honest.
My family has lived in Jupiter for 31 years. Our boys are grown, and it was time to come off the large riverfront home we have occupied for twenty years. Big adjustment. Kate did a spectacular job lining up properties to walk through. She got to know instinctively what are tastes were. So, we did not waste our time. Kate found us the PERFECT home in Hobe Sound. Very secluded, and fit us to a 'T'. Completely professional, and always on time. The transaction was difficult, and she stayed with it every step of the way! Kate Wetherby is a very valuable member of your team. I am a businessman, and would hire her in a minute. This review is unsolicited and honest.
I highly recommend Gina Wilson!
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know about the wonderful experience I had with Gina Wilson as my listing agent. From the very beginning Gina was professional and very thorough. Her knowledge of the South Florida real estate market and attention to detail was apparent from the moment I listed with her. She did a lot of research to price my house right, and because of her diligence it sold in just 9 days of being on the market. She always kept me informed of the surrounding market and the interest in my home. Gina was always looking out for my best interests but at the same time was fair to the buyer.
I will highly recommend Gina to everyone who is looking for an honest, dependable, hard working real estate agent!
Thank you Gina Wilson and the GoldenBear team!
Reliable, Knowledgeable and Responsive
We loved working with Lee Lindler and hold him in the highest regard as an agent. Lee helped us find our first home; he made the process easy with excellent recommendations, and quick responses with all of our (many) questions. With his former contracting experience, Lee was able to point out potential problems in all the homes we viewed which we found incredibly helpful when weighing our options. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable, knowledgeable, and responsive agent.
It meant so very much for to have you on our side.
We were so thankful to have Lori Claussen help us find & buy our very first home. We know it’s something Lori does for people all the time (because of her wisdom & experience), but for these people, it meant so very much for to have her on our side. This is a dream come true for us & we owe it to Lori!
By far this was the smoothest sale!
My wife and I want to thank Jay Satterfield and your staff for a very friendly and professional service. We were absolutely surprised that our house sold so quickly. In less than a weeks time, we had a solid offer which was above our initial asking price. Over the years, we have purchased and sold homes and this one by far this was the smoothest and benefitting to our bottom line.

I have nothing but rave reviews for Golden Bear Realty!
I have nothing but rave reviews for Golden Bear Realty! I am a very demanding buyer in a buyer's market. My Realtor was Joanne Cerreta and she worked with me and my expectations, and we became a great team together. I am 100% satisfied with the entire process - and I LOVE my new home in Palm Beach Gardens!
You were extremely knowledgeable about the state of the local real estate market!
Richard, I wanted to send you a short note to express my appreciation to you and Golden Bear Realty for your very capable handling of the sale of my condominium in PGA National. From our first conversation, you were extremely knowledgeable about the state of the local real estate market and the condominium market within the PGA development. You provided me with thoughtful and appropriate market information that allowed me to set a realistic price that resulted in a fairly quick sale and you also recommended that I make several small, inexpensive improvements prior to listing the property that no doubt improved the salability. You were thoughtful, extremely responsive and made the process as simple as possible for me. If/when my wife and I choose to buy again in Palm Beach County, we will be certain to work with you. Thanks again for all of your capable assistance.
Proactive and Accommodating
I wanted to let you know how supportive Garrett has been to me over the last few years. I began searching for a second home in the Jupiter area about two years ago and have worked with Garrett looking at various properties and locations. Once I decided to join the Loxahatchee Club it became clear that is where I wanted to live. Garrett was very proactive and accommodating to my busy travel schedule throughout the process. He was also very helpful to me in making sure the closing process went as smooth as possible (I closed on a property at the club last week). I will enthusiastically recommend Golden Bear Realty to anyone else interested in a home search.
I could not recommend a better agent!
I had the pleasure of having Tiffnie Robertson as my agent for over 2 years beginning with my relocation to Florida from NY. I will say without a doubt, she is the best agent I have ever had represent me. She is diligent, honest, organized and caring, and she feels like family. She has a true passion for helping people with their real estate needs and this translates clearly in her work. I could not recommend a better agent.
Wonderful and professional experience working with Golden Bear Realty!
I had a wonderful, professional experience working with Golden Bear Realty, in particular Realtor Gail Mills. As someone who is not new to home buying, I must say that my husband and I were extremely pleased with the professionalism and genuine care by your firm and your agent. Gail's customer service exceeded my expectations and I would definitely recommend your firm to my friends and family.
Jimmy is a fantastic source of where to go and who to see!
Hey! Jimmy....Just a few words in my broken English to tell you how much we appreciate the time and energy and professional effort you put in finding exactly what we were looking for. And then some.....really all above the call of duty.
You love what you do, and it shows, and it does not end there...you are a fantastic source of where to go and who to see!
When I purchase, I will call Will at Golden Bear Realty!
My family and I are new to the area. We interviewed many Realtor's and visited many properties. When I met Will Roselle, I felt comfortable and felt that he was looking out for our best interests. Although currently leasing, when I purchase, I will call Will at Golden Bear Realty.
Allyson Pereverzoff was a tremendous help throughout our house‐buying process!
Allyson Pereverzoff was a tremendous help throughout our house‐buying process. We cannot thank her enough for all the time and attention she gave to Devon and I. We realize at times we were anxious and naïve but she was there to “hold our hands” the entire time. She gave advice not only as a Realtor, but as a friend, to help us make an educated decision about our purchase. Allyson always highlighted the positives of home ownership and kept our morale up through the difficult times. She was always organized and thoughtful, even sending us a friendly Christmas card to say congratulations. When it comes to services, it’s always the little things that set you apart from the others and you went above and beyond. We thought it was sweet that she pre‐programmed our destinations into the GPS our first time out! We appreciated the personal touch because it made this feel like a partnership and not just a business transaction.
Your attention to my search was second to none!
Thank you Allyson Pereverzoff is the most diligent Realtor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Your attention to my search was second to none. Thank you dearly for everything.
I highly recommend Karen to anyone looking to sell property!
I tried to sell my own oceanfront villa on Deerfield Beach for a number of years to no avail. In Jan. 2015, I listed my villa with Karen Evans. Karen marketed it and had it under contract in less than 60 days for a price higher than I had offered it when trying to sell independently. Karen not only handled every showing personally and professionally, she also helped me sell some of my furnishings. When the closing occurred, I was out of the Country so she had to arrange for movers to take things to charities for me and clean out the property. She was great at keeping the lines of communication open with me at all times and her negotiating skills with buyers and other Realtors was second to none. I highly recommend Karen to anyone looking to list and sell their property.
An unqualified A+ rating!
I would recommend Robin Carradini highly for someone beginning a search for a home in the West Palm Beach/ Jupiter area. She is very familiar with the clubs there and can provide you with handouts that compare the costs and amenities of said clubs. She is a great listener and therefore selectively chooses the homes to show that match your needs. She made the looking fun even to my husband who hates to look at homes! And she is very willing to meet your schedule and stay as late as is needed. An unqualified A+ rating.
You did an outstanding job for us!
We want to say how impressed we've been all through this process working with David McCallar of Golden Bear Realty. He did an outstanding job for us, and was very thorough. In addition, he was also the nicest agent we have ever dealt with. We appreciate all you've done and continue to do.
Gina Wilson skills and experience were paramount
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Gina Wilson for her excellent job in the purchase of my new home. Because of an extensive list with complex requirements Gina cast a wide net from Boca Raton all the way up to the St. Johns River and located the perfect home in Palm City. Turned out to be a foreclosure in perfect condition. Her skills and experience was paramount in navigating through the complex Government requirements resulting in the closing. It could have even been faster had it not been for the Government misspelling my name, caught by Gina Wilson.
A True Professional
Bob Nitkewicz worked tirelessly with us for more than five years (most of which was when our property was being leased) to keep our property up and when the lease ran out to sell our property promptly and at a good price. We live four hours away so Bob did all the legwork for us including pricing and contracting for replacement of a chimney, painting inside and out, installing new carpeting and repairing woodwork. I am a surgeon and I have to say Bob would have made a great doctor. He pays meticulous attention to detail but also has great bedside manner: He is a true professional!
I would not have been able to do it without Kristin Wallace!
A big THANK YOU to Kristen for finding my new home and selling my old one in a very short time. I would not have been able to do it without her. She on the job 24 hours a day and made everything go so nicely. THANK YOU KRISTIN. You are the very best.
One of the Best Real Estate Experiences Ever
We recently listed our Tequesta home with you folks and we want you to know that we had one of the best real estate experiences ever, because of the superlative service we received from Joe Rodriguez. He did a terrific job for us.
Bob was patient and informative!
I’d like you to know how satisfied my wife and I were with Bob Nitkewicz who helped us sell our house on Kiawah Island. Bob is a true pro who guided us through a complicated thicket of buyer/seller issues. As the utmost professional he is, Bob was patient, informative and always eager to assist on any matter, big or small. We had been dealing with an agent at Kiawah Island Real Estate prior to giving the listing to Bob. He outshined the KIRE agent to the same degree that the light from a supernova outshines that of a spark!! NO comparison!!!
I think you are lucky to have him on the Golden Bear team. Based on our experience we think he is due for a huge raise and promotion!
Tiffnie Robertson knew exactly what I was looking for!
Moving from another state was exciting and a bit intimidating. Tiffnie Robertson knew exactly what I was looking for. Her professionalism and knowledge is a credit to her and Golden Bear Realty. Thanks Tiffnie, I love where I live!
Thank you for selling my condo!
Thank you for everything that you have done in selling my condo...MJ McElwaney made the deal complete because of your terrific personality and sales experience.
What a wonderful job that Lynda Robbins did selling our lot in Xanadu!
I just want to give a testimony to Golden Bear Realty for the wonderful job that Lynda Robbins did in selling our lot in Xanadu. Since we live in Washington state it was great to work with Lynda because she was so responsive to our needs and she was always on top of every issue that came up. I will certainly be providing her name to my neighbors in Xanadu that may have real estate needs.
Above and beyond my expectations!
Working with David McCallar of Golden Bear Realty to buy my first home has been great. He guided me through the home buying process and helped me find exactly what I was looking for. I could tell that he was always looking out for my best interest, and he went above and beyond my expectations when I was out of town immediately before my closing date. I was extremely satisfied with the service and love my new home!
Personal touch and sincerity!
Real estate agent Dave McCallar, from our first parlay in the port of West Palm Beach, we knew we would sign articles with you for the voyage to find a new homeport. As the Captain of our adventure you knew where we could venture, navigated the rocks and shoals, kept our charts and notices up-to-date, listened to our wants and needs, and kept us within our limits without resorting to the lash. Throughout our voyage your personal touch and level of sincerity caused us to look upon you not as Captain, nay, we looked upon you as friend.
Shona is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with!
My wife and I were very happy to have Shona Canup work with us to sell our home. She scheduled all meetings and interactions at our convenience after work and on weekends. Shona provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our home for sale. She promptly returned all phone calls and had advertising in place as soon as possible. She worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation.
