Rory has great local knowledge and is tenacious at getting the deal done. The walk-through video and photos of our house were the best quality you will find anywhere.
He sold my house in 1 day as he strategically planned out every detail to get the job done including fabulous photography. Aside from being a real estate pro he is a very polite, kind, and caring person. I would highly recommend Rory if you are looking to find a real estate agent to get the job done.
One agent we had used just talked so much about himself and moved too slowly for our time frame. Another just did NOT get what we were looking for. On the first day out with Rory he showed me 3 things that we would have been very happy with. We ended up getting our place (which we love) for less than what we actually expected to pay and he got some super cool beds we really liked thrown into the deal. I would recommend him to anyone but especially to snow birds looking in the Siesta Key/Sarasota area. He knows the area, the market and had a good feel for what we were looking for. I also liked the portal he used when we were back in Virginia, keeping us up to date daily on new things appearing on the market. My husband liked his BMW. :) I highly recommend this guy if you don't have a realtor in the Sarasota area.
He goes above and beyond to satisfy the needs of his clients. His confidence and vast knowledge of the real estate market provides seller and buyers with consistency and follow through. Rory is creative, dedicated and enthusiastic through the home buying process. Most importantly, he "Listens" to his clients needs and objectively finds solutions towards positive outcomes. My husband and I highly recommend Rory McDonald!
We were in contact with Rory before our trip and connected with him when we arrived. He knew what we wanted and what our budget was. He only showed us property that was in our budget and what met our needs. He would send us listings and we were able to check out the neighborhood before scheduling an appointment. Rory met all of our needs and out of the condos he showed us, we chose the last one - he saved the best for last. He is very knowledgeable of the condos in the area we were interested in. He met all our requirements in the condo and found just what we wanted. We would highly recommend Rory as he is very professional but also very personable and friendly.
