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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."
