Me and my wife recently used the Wisz team to help us relocate to Riverstrand in Bradenton. We found John to be very knowledgeable, professional, and helpful all the way through our transaction. He also gave us some very helpful advice and tips regarding some improvements we wanted to make to to new home. Barb also provided us with helpful and timely information regarding utility hook ups and other resources. A great real estate team I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in this area.
Finding the right home in a new area can be daunting! Working with John and Barb truly removed much of the stress. First of all I commend them both for listening to our expectations and finding appropriate homes for us to see. When we finally made an offer, John helped us through the entire process, always available to answer our many (!!) questions. Once the offer was accepted John and Barbara continued to support us with a thorough inspection process. Since unfamiliar with the area, they also provided contact numbers for all of the service companies which allowed us to set up accounts early.
The week prior to closing tropical storm IAN became a concern. As IAN materialized into a horrific storm we were unable to be present for the final walk though. After the Hurricane passed John went to our house and did a thorough inspection for any damage and provided feedback to us (also provided pictures) and luckily the house had no damages. This was truly above and beyond the typical scope of work. Thank you for all you did for us.
Omg! John and Barb and their entire team are amazing. We purchased a property through John, and being in another country, John was simple amazing at coordinating not only our visit of properties and our offer and purchase, but also dealing with the community, HOA, title and sale, and even local utilities. John provided a turnkey service including coordinating renovations, assisting with insurance, and being available at a moment's notice to answer questions which provided full confidence in purchasing our new house and making it a home. John and Barb are great people who care about their clients and are so positive and professional! Just amazing to work with and so happy we have got to know them!
John and Barb did a fabulous job for us buying our Coach Home. I knew I could count on them for any issue that might arise. Thanks Again!

John and Barb are a great team. They were very helpful in organizing, staging and helping with the paper work of our sale. They sold it it in record time of 1hour. Couldn’t of done it without them.

My wife and I hired the Wisz Team to handle the sale of three of our properties in the Bradenton area. Our two rental properties sold over asking within a week of listing. Once again, the Wisz team went to work and sold our Vacation Home in 3 days.John and Barb are true professionals who go the extra mile! If you’re looking for hard working Realtors who have your best interest in mind, we strongly recommend the Wisz Team!
Rick & Darlene
John and Barb facilitated the sale of our River Strand property. The sale was the easiest and most stress free ever. We were totally impressed with every aspect of our interactions and of course with the price. I would strongly recommend then to any resident wishing to list.
Kevin & Michelle
Dealing with Barb and John Wisz was a pleasure. They are extremely thorough and they make it a very easy process for their clients. I highly recommend them whether you are buying or selling. They know their market well.
Would highly recommend working with the Wisz Team on your next real estate transaction. Our recent sale in River Strand couldn’t have been any easier. They did an amazing job at marketing our property by creating demand through their numerous connections in the industry. Our house sold quickly at a phenomenal price point and they made the closing process seamless.
Judy & Craig
In February of 2022 we had the absolute pleasure of hiring the Wisz Team to handle the sale of our Bradenton vacation home. Since this is a second home for us and we were not able to physically be there, we needed to rely on the expertise of John and Barb to prepare our home for the sale. They handled everything for us and got the job done efficiently and professionally. Because of their hard work and dedication the sale of our home went smoothly and only took 7 days! We had multiple offers so we needed to rely on their expertise to guide us through making the right decisions and as a result we had a fast closing with a sale at above asking! We absolutely can’t say enough about their exceptional service and professionalism! If you want a realtor team who go above and beyond, you need to call John and Barb Wisz!
Alfred and Janice M.
Amazing realtors and beautiful people!! Sold my condo in a day all with John’s help from my new home in Connecticut!! Everything went very smoothly!!
Just a shout out to a great team to work with for your real estate needs. My husband and I worked with John and Barb for 9 months to find a place in Florida. They were the best! Always quick to respond to every call, text or email, and also multiple video walk throughs, as well as in person. When we finally got our place the communication during closing was outstanding and they made it go very smoothly. They are a very knowledgeable team about the area and supplied us with loads of information necessary for settling in quickly. I am very particular about customer service and they delivered. I’d give them a 10+ out of 10 rating, very professional, would definitely work with them again.
The best real estate experience we have ever had! Their exceptional knowledge of the market, and care of all aspects of the sale was tremendous.

My husband and I recently purchased a condo in Riverstrand Golf and Country Club after renting there in November 2021. We went to an open house hosted by John and Barb Wisz and were impressed with both there knowledge and expertise in the area. They were very professional and forth right about answering all of our questions relevant to the property. John and Barb were always accessible and responsive to our needs and the closing was effortless and stress free. We would highly recommend The Wisz Team for all your real estate needs and would not hesitate to use them in the future.
We recently closed on our Veranda unit in River Strand. Due to the professional handling by John Wisz, the entire transaction went smoothly. When giving advice, he always had our best interest. Based on our experience, we highly recommend the The Wisz Team.
Joe & Carole W.
We have bought and sold 14 homes during our travels around the country. The Wisz team has been the most professional and helpful realtors that we've encountered. They helped and advised us through every step of the selling of our old home and the purchase of our new one. From previewing and screening potential homes to helping us on both buying and selling while we were out of state, they were great. Also, our calls NEVER went to voicemail. They always answered no matter the day or time. That detail was very important to us. Their in depth knowledge of the local market helped us make informed choices throughout the process. We have nothing but kudo's for the Wisz team and recommend them without reservation.
Jerry and Louise
We would like to recommend the Wisz team for any of your real estate needs We have used them a couple of times with great success. They got us the most money for our dealings and were there to answer any questions. So whether you are buying or selling give the Wisz Team a call.
Dan and Elaine
We are so glad we chose the Wisz team. John and Barb were efficient and thorough in managing our listing, and were quick to address our questions and concerns. Their professionalism, knowledge of the market and capable guidance in pricing led to a quick and successful sale.
Dawn & Brian
John and Barb are fantastic to work with. They are professional, knowledgeable and truly understand the Florida market. Not only did they find us a beautiful home at a fair price, they also sold our current place in one day over asking price! John and Barb coached us through the entire process and we could not be happier. If you are looking to buy or sell a property ,The Wisz team is your best bet.
Marie and Frank E.
John and Barb are awesome people and real estate agents. We are Canadian and sold our condo in River Strand while at home in Canada. We anticipated a daunting and complicated process, but this was not the case!! John and Barb were always personable, available, honest, professional, and extremely knowledgeable and informative re every aspect of the transaction . We enjoyed the quickest, easiest and most stress free real estate experience we have ever been involved in. To all Canadians (and all others!!) we highly recommend you contact these amazing agents for your real estate needs!
Jim and Janet C
We recently sold our home in River Strand and can not say enough about John and Barb Wisz. We thought it was going to be difficult as we could not travel back to Florida due to the pandemic. However, the "Wisz Team" made it so easy for us! They walked us through every step, arranged everything that needed to be done to prepare our home for sale and organized everything that needed to be done for the closing. We had so many questions and concerns but they were always accessible and always put us at ease. We really can not thank them enough and totally understand why they were the #1 Team at Keller Williams on the Water, Bradenton for the last few years! If you are ever looking for a realtor to sell or buy most definitely contact John and Barb! They know the Market!
Karen and Mark
After consulting with John and getting his advice on the current market, we avoided the pitfalls of doing it ourselves and used the Wisz Team for our listing agents. They had a little bit of a challenge, since we were the only house on the street without a pool. That said, John and Barb pulled out all the stops, with plenty of Facebook and other advertising, open houses, and private showings. They kept us informed all along the way, and in the end, they negotiated a settlement with our buyer that was fair to both sides. We are very satisfied with how the sale of our house turned out and we highly recommend Barb and John Wisz for your real estate needs!
Dorothy and Chuck
John and Barb,
Thank you so much for all of the hard work that you put into the sale of our home and purchase of a new home. We appreciated all of the attention to detail and extra time spent for our listing and home hunt. You went above and beyond to make sure that everything was taken care of. We are so grateful! We have already recommended the Wisz team to family and neighbors.
Margaret and Perry
John and Barb Wisz proved to be absolutely phenomenal in educating and counseling us in the recent sale of our Condo and the purchase of our Coach Home in River Strand.
They gave us invaluable information that lead to enhancing the market value and appeal of our sale property, allowing us to sell it even before we placed it on the market. We were astonished by the lightning quick sale at a figure above our expectations.
Even more impressive was the purchase of our Coach Home, which John and Barb so skillfully handled for us, at a figure that was below our expectations, and their assistance in getting a closing date and terms that perfectly matched our Condo sale plan. They were so completely professional in handling the purchase, we were able to receive enhancements in the terms of sale. They always promptly and completely answered our questions and concerns.
Barb and John are so personable, trustworthy and ethical that we had total confidence at each step in both transactions. It was simply a perfect and most pleasant experience to have the Wisz Team as our realtors. We totally and unconditionally endorse them.
Marcia and Jim G.
John and Barb Wisz made selling our condo a very pleasant experience from A-Z. There is a reason they are they #1 agents at Keller Williams on the Water in Bradenton. They were knowledgeable, professional, friendly and their teamwork made the process efficient. Every step of the process went without any problems. We signed a listing agreement with John and Barb on Saturday, their professional photographer came on Monday (and did a great job), the listing went live on Wednesday and by Friday they had 7 showings and 3 offers at above our asking price. On Saturday we accepted an all cash offer for $10,000 above our asking price. We couldn’t have been more pleased.
Richard and Jackie I.
Anne and I decided to sell our condominium and, having used John's services before, we knew he and Barb would be the ones to get the job done. They have a greater knowledge of River Strand than anyone else could. Their marketing covered all the basics, and their advice along the way was straightforward. Our property was sold when and as needed, and they helped us make the paperwork easy. You could not go wrong with the Wisz Team!
Our experience with the Wisz team is hard to explain. We have bought and sold over ten homes over the years and five in Florida. The attention to detail and followup when necessary was better than anything we ever had the pleasure of experiencing.John and Barb listened to our needs and found us the perfect home in Esplanade, Lakewook Ranch. They went way beyond our expectations, helping us with outside services after we closed on our home. I remember John telling us during the process his only goal is to make people happy and the rest will take care of itself. If I rated John and Barb 1 through 10 with 10 the best they rate 15. Thank you both for finding our new home.
The Wisz Team was fabulous to work with during our buying experience. John and Barb were upfront and honest about all aspects of the transaction and very helpful in supporting us throughout the process of inspection, financing, insurance etc. They were extremely knowledgeable about the property and community in which we were buying. The fact that we were out of state purchasers, placed even more significance on their outstanding communication skills. We would highly recommend the Wisz Team.
Rick and Teresa K.
Barb and John made the sale of our home seemingly easy despite a global pandemic and its effects. Our home was sold virtually while we were home in Canada. They offered great advice in the most professional way.
Communication was easy with prompt answers to all our questions and I would highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home!
"I first met John Wisz in an earlier life when he was doing handyman work. He struck me as hardworking, friendly, and honest. So when I set out to buy a home in the same community and learned that he and Barbara were now a popular real estate brokerage team, I was happy to engage them for my search.
From day one to well after the closing, John and Barbara were totally on the case for my best interests. Seemingly always available, and cheerfully accommodating my changes in direction, they continued to happily provide needed favors long after their commission was in the bank.
I heartily recommend the Wisz Team."
"The Wisz team has been nothing short of incredible. From the first moment when we were there in Florida looking for a property, to the final moment closing on our property from a distance, Barb and John have been there. Even post-closing, their service continues, they've helped us with a few logistical things, going above and beyond. Highly, highly recommend!
"Barb and John were professional, efficient, extremely knowledgeable and very easy to work with. Their patience, guidance and understanding of what our needs were, in a market we were unfamiliar with, made the process of finding our second home, a wonderful experience. Both Barb and John took the time to educate us through the entire process from the offer to the close - they were always available to offer their support, recommendations and guidance, which was extremely helpful as Canadians buying a property in the US. We were very fortunate to have found The Wisz Team and look forward to our continued association!!"
"I highly recommend the Wisz Team. Covid created such challenges during the selling process, but this team was so proactive in getting buyers to see my property. They went above and beyond in meeting my needs as well as talking at long lengths to prospective buyers. There were some legal issues with my property and this team made sure the buyer was well informed of the issues and made for a smooth transaction.It was a pleasure to work with them as they were professional, personable and knowledgeable"
"The Wisz Team did a great job helping us navigate the purchase of our Florida condo. Not only did they guide us through our purchase, they gave great advice on a couple of hiccups that occurred along the way.
Before we were able to move in, John made a point to keep an eye on our new seasonal property. He even “received” a furniture delivery for us. They are a most knowledgeable and helpful team! "
"Barb and John were great agents. They were always available when we needed them. They helped us through the entire purchase process."
"Whether you are new to this area or a long-term resident, we highly recommend Barb Wisz as the agent who will fulfill all your real estate needs. She was the epitome of a professional, courteous, and responsive agent. We could not have had a better experience in purchasing our Florida home."
Van-George and Jayne B.
"John is always available and on the ball. He is there to help you with any of your needs. I wouldn't trust anyone else but the Wisz Team!!"
"We give 5 Stars to the WISZ Team – John and Barb. They helped us sell our River Strand property and purchase another – all within a matter of two months. Every detail of selling and purchasing was handled with such professionalism. Highly recommend them! "
"John and Barb Wisz listed our Verandah in River Strand and it sold in 2 weeks. They also found us a home in River Strand which we love. The communication and attention to detail from listing our condo through closing on our new home took the stress out of moving during the holiday season. They went above and beyond including meeting contractors when we had to go out of town. John also does Homewatch for us and does a superb job."
"John was the real estate agent on a property that I recently sold. Though it was under contract three times before it sold, John continued to go the extra mile in each case to ensure the best outcome within our control. Not only did he do what he said he would do at every turn, but he went out of his way to do things above and beyond any reasonable expectation of an agent. I will without a doubt ask him to assist me in the future – whether on the buy or sell side. I recommend him to anyone who is seeking the services of a talented, knowledgeable, trustworthy, hard working and dependable real estate agent. Thanks John for all you did to minimize my headaches and to maximize our potential. Sincerely, Justin"
River Strand, Bradenton
"The BEST agents ever!! Our property sold quickly because John and Barb were fantastic – so professional, knowledgeable and responsive. Selling a home can be stressful but not when you have the Wisz Team – they took care of everything – from professional photos of our property to a thorough market analysis to closing. After every showing they ALWAYS followed up with the showing realtor and got feedback. Their attention to detail and level of service made the process seamless. Great people, great service, great experience."
"I would recommend John and his team to anyone. He is knowledgeable, friendly, honest and easily reachable. He answers any question you may have. If he doesn’t immediately know the answer, he will research and find it. John’s easy going nature is refreshing and you never feel pressured. "
"As a Real Estate Professional in Germany with three decades of experience I know that all business is local. Since I was referred to you in 2012 all my expectations have been more than fulfilled. Your service was and still is outstanding."
"There is only one person I refer my clients to and that is John Wisz. John is one of the most honest, dependable, and professional individuals I have ever met and all my clients who use his services say the same thing. You will not be disappointed. "
"John is fantastic, extremely responsible and flexible."
"Thank you for your knowledgeable and prompt service. We’re lucky to have you."
