We are not just real estate professionals, we are human beings who are ready, willing, and able to help those we meet with any challenges they may face. We are true professionals; we know our market; we know our people; we know our areas of expertise and when to refer people to others to get the right answers if we don’t have them. We are consultants, not know-it-alls. We want to understand our people, help our people, and ultimately get our people to the place that is their ultimate destination, HOME.
"Michele came highly recommended to us and didn't disappoint. Her knowledge of the area coupled with her personable style was a great fit for us. We love our home in Apollo Beach and are glad to have met Michele. It's not the last deal we'll be doing with her."
- Dan on Zillow -
"She not only got us our home, she also rented the home we left, right away. She has since re rented our home as soon as the lease expired. Good worker, and readily available. Over the past 30 years of home selling and buying, Michele was the BEST."
- Rich on Zillow -
"When looking for the best in the Tampa, FL. area, there is only one clear choice. Michele Herndon!"
I believe that real estate is customer-centric. Every transaction in which I am involved is about the buyer and seller. Every listing I take is about the seller and the seller’s needs. When I am working with a buyer I go to every extreme to help them get into their ideal home. I have foul-weather gear to go out with buyers on those crazy Florida thunderstorm afternoons; I have every possible phone number known to man-kind to get in touch with lenders to negotiate short sales. I am willing to do whatever it takes to drive luxury home buyers to my luxury seller’s homes. I handle every situation as a unique transaction. No two transactions are alike, nor are any two clients. I customize my action plans based on the needs of each of my clients. My ability to plan, set goals, and create action plans to accomplish those goals is the hallmark of my success.
My mission is to provide excellent service in the real estate industry with the buyer and seller in mind using today's cutting edge technology, social media and superior real estate knowledge and attention to detail to be the best that I can be.
Confidentiality, integrity, and follow-up keep my customers loyal and thus word-of-mouth keeps my business thriving.
Sandy Huffer relocated to Tampa in 2000 and immediately felt at "home" in the South Shore area - not at all a familiar feeling, as she was born in Taipei, Taiwan and spent her first 18 years living in such diverse cultures as Okinawa, India, Cyprus, England and Greece. After marrying her husband Ray in 1983, they embarked on their own adventure moving from Virginia to Maryland's Eastern Shore then to Orlando, North Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi and finally back to Florida again. While affectionately referring to their southerly migration as the "winter elimination plan" and admitting that traveling is definitely in her blood, Sandy fell in love with the small town warmth of the South Shore area and everything the coastal lifestyle has to offer.
After 25+ years employed in the government and corporate environs, Sandy began her real estate career in 2006. Her #1 priority is to provide exemplary service by offering enthusiasm, honesty, dedication, and the knowledge to turn real estate dreams into a reality. As a result of her traveling background, Sandy is uniquely qualified to understand the challenges and excitement of relocation - whether that move is from overseas, another state, or across town. She is committed to professionally and energetically understanding the needs of each and every client and serving them with the highest standards of care.
When she's not assisting clients, Sandy enjoys spending time with her husband and their cats, traveling, boating, fishing, cooking, and spending time with family and friends. She has a true passion for animals and is a supporter of the Humane Society, C.A.R.E., dog walking programs, and participates locally in the TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) feral cat program.
