Satisfied Clients




Here are some testimonials from some of my recent short sale clients.


"First Coast Realty's team of experts navigated the process from working with our mortgage investor to negotiation of the accepted price to the closing agent who performs the closing.  We spoke with many so called experts but Mike Linkenauger and his team was clearly the choice for us to get this process completed with the least amount of stress.  Many companies call themselves experts but First Coast Realty has the actual contacts to make a qualified judgment on your personal situation.  Thank you Mike and First Coast Realty!"

"We just wanted to take a minute and thank you for all the hard work you have done for us and successfully selling 2 homes for us in a fairly short period of time.  We know you have spent a lot of time negotiating and getting approval from the 1st and 2nd lienholders of each property!  We really needed to sell these homes and doing a short sale was our best option.  You have went "above and beyond" to make this a very smooth process! Thanks again!"

Mike and Renee W.

"Mike and his team did an great job on selling my property. This was a very difficult time for my family and me.  With this downturn in the economy, I was left a house and a mortgage I could not pay or afford.  Mike, you came to my rescue.  I truly appreciate your professionalism and your dedication from you and your entire team on getting this property sold quickly and NOT requiring to payback the bank almost 80k.  By you working with the bank and establishing a great relationship, I do not have any financial obligation to the bank. I believe your marketing effort provided great exposure for my property that helped expedite selling.

I  would definitely recommend using your services and expertise if any one finds them selves in this difficult situation.

It was a pleasure working with and your team and keeping my spirits positive.

Now I can get my life back and move forward."

Gary R.

Gary had an investment property that could not be rented for anywhere near what his mortgage payment was, and could not cover the difference.  He was forgiven of approximately $80,000 in debt from his lender!  CLICK HERE to see his short sale approval letter!
