New construction in Lakewood Estates

Fantastic family home for $419,000
This spacious four-bedroom home is located in one of St. Petersburg’s most beautiful and historic neighborhoods, Lakewood Estates. Sitting on a tree-lined street just a brief walk from the tee box on the 18th hole at St. Petersburg Country Club, this house exudes quality in every detail. It has solid concrete block construction, with a two-car garage and covered, pavered sitting areas in front and back. Inside, you’ll find a formal dining room, an open concept kitchen and a great room with French doors that overlook a secluded natural setting (that still has room for a pool). The floor plan includes a master bedroom suite on one side of the house, and three bedrooms on the other side. The stylish, engineered hardwood floors throughout the common areas evoke an airy beach cottage feel, and the bedrooms all have carpet. All bathrooms feature porcelain tile on the floors and showers.The kitchen features include a higher-end stainless steel package, whisper-close cabinets and a large pantry. Nearby schools include Lakewood High, known for its highly advanced technical center. It’s also close to Boyd Hill Nature Preserve and a shaded park at Lake Maggiore.

We recently sold our historical home in St. Pete's Old Northeast, and thanks to Renee, we had an offer close to full-asking price within two weeks (and during the off-season, no less!). She was a tremendous help every step of the way: from identifying what needed to be fixed up in the home (and, more importantly, what we didn't need to spend money on), putting us in touch with experienced, reliable and affordable contractors to get the house ready, handling a rather cumbersome corporate relocation process, proactively promoting our home in the market and to her fellow real estate agents, to making the closing process painless and worry-free. She was generous with her time and knowledge, both with us and with prospective buyers. We could not recommend her more highly: experienced, knowledgeable, well-connected, patient, honest and genuine. LDBryan
Renee and Anne walked us through more than three dozen houses, always patiently listening to our needs and wants. They backed us away from dubious listings and encouraged us to give a second look to several we might have written off. Their expertise was invaluable to us as first-time home buyers. St. Pete is a crazy, competitive market and there were many days we thought we'd never find a house we loved and could afford. But Renee and Anne persevered with us and we landed in a great place. Molly Moorhead
Renee and Anne were the best. They are very prompt and accurate with all their advice. I highly recommend them for your property needs. Every vendor they recommended was also very professional. They got us to closing in under 30 days which is amazing these days. Communication was always excellent. I wish more people conducted themselves like Renee and Anne do. Stewart Beatty
Renee is the perfect balance of a professional expert and a genuinely caring human, exactly what we were looking for. She went above and beyond from start to finish. She pulled reports that we overlooked, she stayed on top of our requests, and, even after the sale, loaned us her personal items to help with our renovations. We refer her to anyone that asks about our new home and our experience. Renee is the best, end of story. Christine Laurenzi
Renee and her Team were super supportive, patient and very responsive in our search for an emty-nesters home. Renee Celli and her Team know the Old Northeast inside out and found our future house on the eve before it went on the market. Renee went above and beyond in her personal involvement with every single step of the purchase process. If you are looking for a property in the Old Northeast or in St. Pete – hire Renee! Ursula and Charles Hahn
Renee Celli is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with, hands down. Our questions were answered in a honest straight forward manner and reflected her knowledge and experience in the Saint Petersburg market. When we found the house we wanted, she guided us in the negotiations and our offer was accepted. Renee occasionally checked the vacant house for us since we lived in NY. For example, the original termite report for the house we purchased in the Historic North East was negative. However, checking the house for us two days before closing, Renee noticed some termite dust and notified the seller that the house needed to be tented asap. Renee, herself, quickly arranged for the tenting that day and negotiated that the expense be paid for by the seller. The tenting was done and we closed as scheduled. We never thought it would get done that fast! Whether we needed local advice regarding the area or regarding the purchase, Renee was always there for us. Certainly above and beyond what you would expect from an agent. Thank you Renee! George and Susan Wiley, St. Petersburg
