Let’s put it this way: based on Renee’s recommendation, I got on a plane and flew from Rhode Island to Florida in order to see a brand-new listing in my preferred neighborhood.
Long story short, I made an offer the next day and closed on the property 45 days later. She gave me excellent advice on crafting my offer (there were multiple offers) and in negotiating the substantial inspection issues.
She has a background in construction and property management. She saw the potential in St Pete years ago (prospective clients take note: she’s already got her eye on the next “up & coming” neighborhood). All that, plus her excellent relationship with the agents on the opposite side of the negotiating table, made me trust her 100%. There was no drama, no missed deadlines, no unreturned phone calls. Renee was great.
And, in case you are wondering, I continue to be delighted with the house I bought — no buyer’s remorse despite the lightning-fast speed with which I had to make my decision.
"You would be hard pressed to find a more knowledgeable and dedicated agent in Pinellas County. With several decades of experience representing buyers and/or sellers, Renee has a keen sense for what is happening in the local marketplace. Due to her experience in the local market, she knew exactly what it would take to market our house to appeal to buyers both locally and nationally. As a result of the robust marketing plan, we received an above list price offer within the first 48 hours. She is 'no nonsense,' does not operate with a bunch of fluff and is not afraid to tell you what you need to hear. So whether you are buying or selling, you owe it to yourself to put her on your short list of agents for consideration."
Prior to Renee Celli of Team Celli, our home had languished on the market for 6 months. We had few showings and two offers which were on the order of: “let’s see if we can steal this home”. We were, frankly, worn out and very discouraged.
When we found Renee, her first words were: “We have to spruce up the kitchen and paint the walls, and it’ll sell”. Boy, was she right. New granite in the kitchen and a fresh coat of paint in two rooms and 6 days later, the home was sold. I don’t know if she was dragging folks off the street, or what, but those 6 days were a blur of showings, culminating in an acceptable offer, and a second buyer waiting to see if the offer fell through.
I don’t know if we joined her family, or they joined ours…in any event, Renee and Anne are surely family now.
The 5 star ratings are not fluff; these ladies earned and deserve them.
You will not do better than to list your home with Team Celli.
"Renee Celli went ABOVE AND BEYOND! I'm going to attempt to describe Renee... Driven. Attentive. Experienced. Counselor. Leader. This was my wife and I's first home buying experience and at times when I was frustrated and confused Renee was a real light in the dark. She had the knowledge, experience and big heart to give me peace of mind during times when I was frustrated and feeling lost. She made a HUGE impact on my wife and I's lives and she will be a forever friend. I'm tearing up thinking of how she's more than a experienced professional realtor, she's family. Her experience and knowledge got us what we were looking for and I will be forever grateful! Thank you Renee! Love you always!"
Renee was excellent. She really listened, was patient, never pressured, and really felt like she cared and wanted to get us the right place. We were looking for a place in downtown St Pete. She literally knows everything about every place down there, and I mean everything. She has a lot of building construction knowledge and insight into those sort of questions. I met with a few other agents before and the difference in quality was night and day. Renee is the kind of real estate agent you want on your side.
I've used in the past and she's just as great as she was the first time she knew I was looking for and found me the perfect house I would very highly recommend.
Renee and her team were wonderful through the entire process and even afterwards! They helped walk through all of the processes that I did not understand and were always very responsive even when they were on vacation! I would highly recommend her and her team to anyone who is either buying or selling their property. Thank you again Renee!
Renee's service was outstanding! She took care of everything and went above and beyond her duties. She was always there for me to explain every step and guided me all the way through. Her work and professionalism are excellent!
Renee was a pleasure to work with in both selling of home and finding new to purchase. Very knowledgeable of area and current market. Very professional in approach but fun to work with. Always available when questions came up. Has helped for many years with several family members. Great advise and many contacts in business.
Thanks to Renee, we sold our St. Pete home quickly and easily. Renee was prompt and professional from the first time we met. She gave excellent advice throughout the process and quickly responded to all of our questions. After just three days of showings, we had an excellent offer. Renee worked tirelessly to help us navigate the contractual details and closing process. Of course we're highly likely to recommend Renee, we've already done so!
