We had the good fortune of having Frank Petras recommended to us by a friend who had recently used his services to purchase a property in Naples, FL. Our friend came to know Frank by Frank being recommended to him by another individual who had worked with Frank numerous times to purchase and sell several properties in Naples. As high as the bar was set by our friend's glowing recommendation, we're happy to say that Frank still exceeded our expectations. Frank started our home purchase in Naples by refining needed property attributes. He narrowed showings to deliver those attributes, provided invaluable market facts and figures to complete the final choice, and then seamlessly delivered the closing process. Throughout the entire experience, Frank was our "anticipatory" partner. By asking thoughtful questions about our professions, backgrounds, and family; he got to personally know us and how we'd approach the home purchase process. This allowed him to anticipate and provide answers to questions, requests for data, and purchase updates before asked. He was astute enough to see that the initial showing process was moving us in a different direction. Adjustments were quickly made and we completed our long time dream of owning a home in Naples. Frank's "Best in Class" communications skills made us feel as though we were his only clients. He was and continues to be completely accessible whether in person, by phone, or electronic media. Even after purchase completion, he is still providing his time, services, and input into our home and the community of Naples. We went into the purchase process to find a home; we came out of it with the home of our dreams and someone were our fortunate enough to call our friend.

In my experience as a CEO, I have found a trusted colleague in Frank Petras. After first knowing Frank as an investor relations and a marketing and communications executive, it seemed only fitting that he would later become my Realtor, looking out for my best interests in the forever changing real estate market. Frank has represented me in several significant residential real estate purchases and sales. The fact that he holds an M.B.A. and is a licensed attorney solidifies my confidence in his abilities as a real estate professional. I describe Frank as confident, personable, responsive, resourceful and professional. I am extremely impressed by Frank's tremendous wealth of knowledge as he continues to exceed my expectations. He is a perfectionist and understands the diverse issues, parties and personalities that can be involved with a complex transaction, and exceeds in delivering the service, professional counsel and results expected. As a former executive himself, Frank understands client service. What Frank brings to a business relationship is so needed in today's real estate industry and that is what makes successful individuals and executives so pleased to work with him. I look forward to working with Frank on future endeavors and will continue to refer him to family, friends and business associates.

My husband and I have been in the Florida real estate market for seven years. Whether buying, selling or exploring new opportunities, Frank Petras has been with us every step of the way.

We can't even begin to express our sincerest appreciation for all of Frank's expertise and hard work. There is absolutely no way we could have completed our complex transaction without Frank's knowledge and guidance. He did all of the work, including taking care of our home during our absence. I highly recommend Frank to anyone who needs a REALTOR. Thanks again.

Frankie has tremendously good instincts and an incredible eye. We explained to him the dynamics of our family and how we planned on using a home in Naples. In turn, he described to us the type of home that he thought would be a best fit for our family. The first home he showed us was the one that he thought would be perfect for us. He was right on! That is the home we ended up purchasing. Frankie made the buying processes extremely easy and painless. He did a tremendous job negotiating our transaction and handling all the details through to a successful closing. We were extremely pleased working with Frankie and always recommend him to friends and business associates.

Frank is one of the most dedicated and knowledgeable people in the real estate market today. His professionalism and work ethic give him a cutting edge over other agents, along with his extensive business and legal backgrounds that help him to negotiate strategically and with finesse. Not only is he a good friend, but through his guidance, he also helped us out of a really tight spot when the market crashed. We highly recommend him to everyone we know.
- Karen and Mark Danni
We have bought two places from Frank. He has also sold multiple properties to family members too. Frank is the absolute best at follow-up! We think so highly of him, that we referred several friends and family members to him who actually bought properties from him too. When we are ready for our next house in Naples, Frank will be the first person we call!
- Denise and Danny Fedeli
It is a real pleasure to work with Frank. His friendly attitude, incomparable market knowledge, candor and passion for his work make Frank a real jewel. Upon first meeting Frank at the recommendation of a friend who was also a client of Frank's, he immediately established with us a sense of trust and confidence. His professionalism and dedication to his clients make him the only REALTOR with whom we would ever work in Southwest Florida. His knowledge of the market, coupled with his incredible negotiation skills and instincts, helped us buy and then sell our home at phenomenal prices based on comparables. He advised us of the optimum time to buy and sell and we are so grateful we followed his advice and intuition, as we benefited gratefully by doing so. Frank certainly lives up to his fine reputation as a luxury property specialist. We began our relationship with Frank as a client, and we continue our relationship today as dear friends.

The professional manner in which you conducted yourself in all aspects of our dealings was exemplary. We will recommend you highly when asked for real estate advice by our friends and wish you continued success.
