  • We worked with Elke to buy our home last May in Englewood. She was fantastic to work with and she definitely goes the extra mile for her clients. She even drove to Tampa to pick me up at the airport and take me to the builders design center. We would definitely use Elke again.

  • I met Ms. Elke von Oertzen almost three years ago. From the moment I talked to her I knew she is extremely courteous and most of all very professional. Over two years ago we bought a house in Venice, and Elke negotiated on our behalf. I was amazed at her professionalism, and charisma in getting the deal done. She is not pushy and gives the entire story and not scared to hide the bad aspects, unlike some of the realtors I came across, simply in the best interest of her customer. I have never met another real estate agent like Elke. She is extremely helpful, even after the closing and sale. I am extremely fortunate to have met Elke, and if I need another property she would be my first choice of realtor. On a personal note, Elke is extremely kind, generous and always willing to help.

  • The service and personal attention I received from Elke was exceptional. Her knowledge of the local market helped me in my search for the Florida home of my dreams . After patiently going through listings and exploring many neighborhoods and house options, she made sure I got the best value on the purchase of the new home Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Elke von Oertzen to help you in this life changing move. I could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide me through the process.

  • Elke von Oertzen is the most tireless and steadfast advocate of a buyer’s interest in residential real estate that I have ever met. She never stops working on her clients behalf. Most importantly, Elke thought of our interests and our resources as if she were spending her own money-she represented my wife and me, and only us, in the transaction. Although that may sound like the way it should always be, I know that frequently real estate brokers have market “entanglements” that can work to the buyer’s detriment. I experienced none of that with Elke, who worked with us to ultimately find our dream home. Elke has my very highest recommendation to any residential buyer entering the Venice area market.

  • This letter is in appreciation of the excellent service Elke von Oertzen has given my husband and myself. We have never been more pleased with a realtor as we are with Elke. We highly recommend her. When my husband and I were ready to sell our house, we did our "due diligence" in researching a listing realtor. To do so, we looked at numerous listings to find someone who: 1.) Displayed many and good quality photos on her listings 2.) described the property well and in detail 3.) used multiple sites on the internet for maximum exposure and 4.) had her own ad in Homes magazine each month. I found all of these attributes in Elke. So I gave her a call. When we spoke in person, that solidified our decision that Elke would list our house. She has expert knowledge of the real estate market and has an energetic and enthusiastic personality. She is a real pleasure to work with. Elke is a true professional, always responding very quickly to my emails and phone calls. Now that our house is sold, we are taking advantage of Elke's expertise in the buying market. We are confident she'll find us a winner!

  • I have moved 16 or 17 times in my life and never have I come across an agent of Elke von Oertzen's caliber and professionalism. No wonder EXIT Realty is growing by leaps and bounds if your agents epitomize Elke's dedication and loyalty. You can reach that woman at all times, and she is always cheerful and uplifting. If you're down Elke will try and lift you up; she goes that extra mile for her client’s happiness and satisfaction. I did not know Elke when I chose her to sell my home, her reputation came by word of mouth, but I found her to be intelligent, honest, sincere and intuitive. I was widowed recently and it was great to let Elke take over the marketing of my home and to find another home I am pleased with. You can bet that when I hear of a friend thinking of selling or buying a home, my antenna will go up and I'll proudly tell them of my great experience with Elke von Oertzen.

  • You made buying a home so easy for my wife and I. We were grateful for how much patience you used in answering all of our questions and taking us to look at so many houses. You never pushed us into looking at something we were not interested in. We strongly recommend you to anyone looking at buying a new home.
