Peter and Sylvia were excellent to deal with for the sale of our property in Avon Park Fl. They were very knowledgeable about estimating the value of our home and are very knowledgeable about the area. They kept us well informed about what was going on with our property as we were not in the US but we were in Canada. Peter and Sylvia did an excellent job.joecarol1164
Outstanding!! If you are looking to buy or list a home in the Avon Park/Sebring area, be sure to call Sylvia and Peter. They are a dynamic, personable and knowledgable couple - experts in the real estate field and wonderful to work with! dfigg
We needed to sell a property for an estate. The property was in Florida and we are in Michigan. Sylvia handled the sale and got it sold. It’s not easy dealing long distant and she made it much easier.
Sylvia was instrumental in closing the deal on the property we wanted to purchase from her seller. After many months of unexpected problems arose with the seller, title company & lawyer, she was steadfast on making the deal workout. Her communication was outstanding! She walked us through the entire process, which was very foreign to us. She even worked while on vacation to make sure our closing date wasn't pushed back any further. We appreciate all her hard work & advise & we will contact her in the future for all our real estate needs.user2154302
Been holding on to unused property for 40 years. Got Blackmores from a real estate pal in Chicago. Called and listed and sold in two days at our asking price. I’m grinning typing this. Could not have gone quicker and the e-paperwork moved it along real easy. I’m 100% satisfied.trnchgo
They are super honest, reliable, caring real estate couple I have ever met. They go above and beyond their duties to make sure you are happy. I would recommend them with all confidence!oliher1952
Our experience with Peter and Sylvia Blackmore was exceptional! Extremely professional in helping us purchase our condo. They took special interest in finding just the right property that fit us. They were on top of the process from A to Z, plus they are just darn nice people with a great sense of humor. Thank you again, Peter and Sylvia!!!!!Lee and Diana
We have purchased two properties from Peter and the experience has been delightful. We have also sold a property and peter worked in our best interest each and every time. He was able to give us information in order to make an informed and correct decision. His knowledge of the surrounding area and developments was very helpful. We were very comfortable with peter and he did not push us into any decisions which weas appreciated.lfhathorn
My husband and I would have driven any other Realtor batty
but Peter was so patient, professional, and wise. We battered him with multiple properties of interest. He never
pressed us on any, but would give little bits of wisdom
along the way regarding things he noticed that concerned him. Finally we made our choice, then we changed our minds, dropped out then came back in . At last we were really ready to buy our dream house when we experienced dis-functional family issues.... Peter was very understanding. Believe me..when we work thru these issues we will be calling Peter back to work with us in buying the new home & selling the current home. (IF he will have us!) He is highly recommended by the Conley family.Conley family
Peter, and his capable partner Sylvia, meticulously prepared my place for the market when I was unable to do so myself. They provided advice on, and helped me obtain required maintenance during the listing period.Without their devoted attention to my concerns the marketing of the premises would have been a real heartache.D. Graham Donaldson
Very knowledgeable and professional. We got very good advice. Unfortunately finance is still the main issue when purchasing a home and big deposits are now the stumbling block to getting a home of your own.kazpenn
I had a great experience dealing with both Peter and Sylvia. They are a great team. They kept me in the "loop" throughout the whole process; I never had to call them, they called me to fill me in. Peter also helped make some repairs that needed to be done.
Hopefully, I won't have another house to sell anytime soon. If I do, I know who I'll call! The Blackmore Team!marilynvidebeck
To who it may concern: Peter Blackmore was so helpful...his experience,negotiation skills and most of all for me...his RESPONSIVENESS was the best!! Also, his local knowledge was so helpful to me! Peter Blackmore, Five Star all the way! Thank you Peter!! I love my new home! Herb Monto.......user2124095
We have dealt with Mr and Mrs Blackmore since the early 90s and have always found them very helpful. When it came time to put my property on the market, I obviously used them. They negotiated a good price for my property and kept me advised about the processes involved. The property was cleared very quickly.
Would strongly recommend them for anyone contemplating a property move into this area.Charles and Ann Smith
Thanks, for his help. He was diligent helping me finding a right place to live. He follow up with me and trying to find the right place for us to live. He understand well what are my expectations for the home that I looking for.zuser20140614181215618
My buying experience could not have been better. Peter handled everything in his local office and I did not even need to travel to FL to buy my new winter home. He answered so many questions for me even beyond what a realtor should need to do. We found a great seasonal home and new friends at the same time. Thanks Peter!mywayworks
Very professional and knowledgeable of the market and the marketing of the home that we had for sale. The closing was efficient and timely. We would highly recommend Peter Blackmore and would not hesitate to use him to sell or purchase a home in the future.user3508991
Peter and his team of experts were VERY instrumental in getting a contract for our listing in just 35 days! We had a lot of questions about the buying and selling process and all were answered honestly and accurately. Should we ever have the need again, we have determined that we would like them to represent us for both our buying and selling needs. Just cannot stress enough about how helpful and knowledgable they are!jmvickers
Once I discovered Peter and his wife, they were very patient and accommodating. As I located homes on Zillow that I thought we may be interested in, Peter was able to quickly get me more information and access to the various homes for viewing.
The final home that my friend purchased, while I located it on Zillow, Peter took myself and my friend the next day to check it out. Since my friend was flying in from another state, we were able to get the deal nailed down quickly and efficiently.
We both enjoyed working with Peter and Sylvia and would recommend them to others that are looking to find a knowledgable realtor in the area and surrounding areas!Cathi Allyn
Peter and his staff were amazingly helpful. Their knowledge of the area and the homes available was beyond my expectations.
They also informed me of a special FHA financing program that allows Senior home buyers to purchase a home at approx half down and no monthly mortgage payments. And the home would be owned by me (just a no payment mortgage attached to the home). I would have pay the property taxes and homeowner's insurance.timlinger15
I would highly recommend Peter and his wife Sylvia I have Known them for a few years . I live in Ohio and they where great at looking at property for me beforehand and evaluating them. Therefore Saving me time when I arrived in Florida. They are very helpful on everything you need help with. I look forward to using them to sell my other property. Jay
Peter and Sylvia were very helpful and had multiple showings lined up for us so that no time was wasted. Once we found a property they made it a point to expedite the process so we were able to move in ASAP. They were very helpful and courteous and we would recommend them to anyone.zuser20171115122506180
Recommendation for Sylvia and Peter Blackmore
Highly recommended. My wife and I partook of Sylvia and Peter's services starting around August of 2014. At the time we had adequate downpayment, but because we had two mortgages (one was for sale) and resulting budget constraints, our top-end, seeking, purchase price was very low.
This did not deter Sylvia and Peter from putting forth full effort, without judgement, in diligently looking for something that would meet our needs; providing knowledge and guidance of the geographical area and processes along the way. We did put in offers on a couple of places, but though no ones fault, those two attempts did not pan out (which you will see later, we could not be happier about).
We had to give up the search in about September of 2014, to head back to Washington state due to commitments.
Because of family commitments in 2015, we took up the search again in August of 2016 with Sylvia and Peter. Our financial situation had improved to a more solid footing (one of the two houses was selling by owner-financing), so we were able to raise our looking price to a higher level, although still modest for a stick built in the area.
After looking for a couple of days at what was available (we had been keeping an eye on the market via Zillow), I became a little discouraged at what was currently available; always at the mercy of the current market. But again Sylvia and Peter were diligent in the search, and (as the saying goes...darkest before the light, etc.) the hard work paid off and we came upon the house of our dreams in the best location possible.
We could not be happier and the timing could not have been better. Even though there were still trials and tribulations to go through with the lender. The closing process was time-consuming, but I stayed in the area past closing while my wife returned to Washington to finish working through retirement.
Sylvia and Peter assisted in the process with advice and knowledge throughout. They even invited us into their home office to work through some of the "bumps -in-the-road" with paperwork. We had worked with larger company realtors in the Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte area, and even contacted a larger company in Sebring, but the service provided by Sylvia and Peter was much superior to those experiences.
Of course I cannot guarantee you will have the success we had in obtaining what you desire, since you must make the decisions necessary to obtain what you want. But what I can guarantee is you will receive the best service, responsive communication, local knowledge, realty search skills, and process input from Sylvia and Peter to help in your search efforts. They are low pressure and let you decide if a specific place will suit your needs, but making suggestions. Also, they stay with you the whole time, rather than hand you off to assistants.
So as stated at the beginning...highly recommend.
Good luck with your search!user39536522
Peter and Sylvia were the consummate professionals. They helped me every step of the way from 1200 miles away. I felt very comfortable buying my home "long distance" because they were so helpful and competent. Can't say enough about them, and highly recommend.
Buying the right retirement home can be very stressful, but they
made it simple, quick, and easy.bagelbob99
Peter and Sylvia were very attentive in our buying a home in Avon Park. They spent a day with us just looking and never knew if we were really interested. We found one we loved. We had many issues with short sale, bank, and appraisals. They were there every step with us and finally made it happen. We would have been lost without them. They truly are professional, very nice, and true to their word.
I would highly recommend Peter and Sylvia in purchasing a home.Dennis and Judy
