DENISE & CHRIS OCHS-sm

“We were relocating to Tampa from Philadelphia and weren’t thrilled with the agent the relocation company suggested, so we turned to yelp for help. Based on the good reviews, my husband called Sophia – they had a great conversation and he was confident she understood our needs and would help get the job done in our limited time frame. She was fantastic – dedicated a weekend to us during our house hunting trip – not only showing us properties in the area that would be a good fit, but also gave us a personal tour of the South Tampa area – pointing out great restaurants, places to shop etc. We loved that she also lived in the area we were looking so could give recommendations on schools etc. We found our home that weekend and put in an offer that was accepted. Everything else was seemless – and two months later we are all moved in and starting our new adventure in Tampa!”

“We cannot say enough to express how wonderful it was working with Sophia and her talented caring staff. The personal touch she gave us from our first meet through the closing made us feel like she was a dear friend. That, along with the professionalism they all had was exceptional! You will not regret using this amazing Realtor. And Yes, we sold our house the first day on the market! Thank you again for all you did!”

“Seriously the best!!! Sophia was a god send. I am a first time home buyer and can’t wait to refer anyone I come across to her team. The process was efficient, organized and very professional. What an outstanding business Sanchez & Co. are running at their new location on S.Howard Ave next to Starbucks. My questions and needs were always addressed. The process for me at first was a bit nerve racking as I’ve never bought a home or thought I could but Sophia really understood what my wants and needs were. Practically everything was digital (e-mail and text communication, digital signatures I could do from my laptop or phone, and that was really big for me because I could always have written record of what we said because I had to research and assure myself I was correctly reading and understanding the industry jargon. If given the opportunity to change anything – I would’ve only got to contact Sanchez & Co sooner! Thank you Sophia and Arman for your time and help in my first time home buying experience =)”

“Sophia and her team just sold our house!! We can’t believe how quickly and smoothly the whole transaction was.  The house, located in the Tampa Heights Historic District, was very unusual and required just the right buyers.  Sophia found them and they really love it. She was savvy about having the house listed on all the real estate and social media sites, and included lots of images, a video and more. Because of this, we had many, many showings that proved it was working. She also explained the huge volume of necessary paperwork in terms we could understand. All in all, it was a wonderful experience and we would be more than happy to recommend Sophia Sanchez to anyone who is buying or selling a home. Thank you Sophia!!!”

“We recently moved from Boston to Tampa with little knowledge of the area, so we needed significant guidance regarding the best location for our family and an understanding of the overall housing marketplace. Our search began with identifying the best real estate agent to help us navigate this complex decision. We selected Sophia Sanchez based on multiple stellar Yelp reviews and she did not disappoint. 

Sophia was the most attentive and detail-oriented real estate agent we had ever worked with. She listened intently and understood precisely what we were after (even though we didn’t quite know what we were after), and she presented multiple appropriate homes during this search. Sophia also had a strong understanding of housing construction and helped point out flaws and provided an accurate local cost of repairs. When it came time to make an offer, her astute understanding of current home values led to a fair offer that was accepted (and more than 5% below asking). We cannot thank Sophia enough for her help as we are incredibly happy with our decision and our change in latitude.  And we love that she periodically checks in with us to see if we need anything. Truly amazing!”

“Sophia is incredible!! My husband and I relocated from Philadelphia to Tampa and thanks to Sophia we found and bought our very first home! We are so grateful for her knowledge of the area and we appreciate the time she took to get to know us…finding out our hobbies, interests, etc helped her find us a great area/community that perfectly fits our needs/wants. THANK YOU!!!”

“As a first-time homeowner, you want to have the best level of service and form a relationship. There is a lot of new things to consider and learn about because buying a home is one of the biggest moments in your adult life! You want someone you can trust and someone to walk you through the process and we cannot rave loud enough about the services and bond formed with Sophia Sanchez and the team at Sanchez & Co.

From day 1, we were looking for the right team and came into this scenario with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. The team at Sanchez & Co. was extremely responsive and had great suggestions and homework for us that empowered us to feel a part of every stage, fully taught and understanding the process. All throughout the negotiations and closing the team were there quickly handling any issues that may have risen and was accessible with timely communication which made us feel valued & important; a trait so important because this is a huge commitment and an even larger investment!

I hope that this does not need to happen because we did not find a house but a home we want to live in for many years to come but if the time ever comes when we will be looking for a new home, there is no question on who my team will be! We were impressed with her professionalism and her genuine interest in assuring we were satisfied with our final decision on our new place. Sophia is honest and hands-on, walking us through every step of the negotiations, even suggesting that we write a letter to the sellers to explain why we thought they should choose us. It was an unconventional approach but it worked! 

We would, and will, recommend Sophia Sanchez, Arman Farid, and the rest of the Sanchez & Co team to anyone in the market to purchase a home. The best part is that we now have a strengthened friendship – a friendship that will continue to grow outside the bonds of business! She and her team are always welcome as a guest in our home and I am confident if you work with them you will open your doors to them as well!”

“I am a first time homebuyer and I was thrilled that the process was quite smooth, thanks to the diligence and helpfulness of Sophia and Arman. From day one, Sophia walked me through the home buying process with an initial presentation and question and answer to show me the entire journey step-by-step. She also had a list of trusted and local resources to make the selection of businesses (i.e., lender, inspection company, title company, etc.) easy. 

Sophia and her team were competent and professional in every aspect of my experience – which is rare to find these days. Because I was new to the home buying process, I relied on their expertise and ended up with a condo – within just two months time – in which I am truly satisfied. I believe I learned so much through the journey and will certainly refer all of my colleagues, friends, and family that are looking to buy or sell a residence to Sanchez & Company. I do not typically write reviews, but felt compelled to do so given such a wonderful experience I encountered, and I want Sophia and her team to get the exposure and recognition they deserve.”

“Though I’ve known Sophia for years as a client and friend, she came to my aid about 3 years ago when I was in a real estate predicament.  I was going through a sticky separation and had to liquidate 2 properties quickly.  She was there for me and my ex every step of the way, being candid and informative about the realities of the situation.  She was able to help move the properties really quickly, and handled the closing very professionally since the selling parties didn’t want to be in the same room!  I believe in this day and age it’s difficult to find a real person who cares about their clients, it’s all about the dollar. But Sophia takes care of her clients and really has your best interests in mind.  And she gives back to the community also, which is an inspiration.  She’s a great realtor in every way!”

She is particularly expert in identifying great properties in Seminole Heights, Tampa Heights, and other up and coming neighborhoods north of downtown. Friendly, attentive, and well-versed. When all the steps of home-buying were too much for me to handle, Sophia was always there to carry the load.”

“Sophia is simply the best! She helped us find and purchase our first home in Tampa, then later stage and sell that home, and finally, find our current beautiful home. Finding a home can be daunting–there are many afternoons, evenings and weekends spent searching for that perfect fit. We were so lucky to be able to do that with someone like Sophia–who not only has the expertise and knowledge of the Tampa area, but also is hilarious, energetic and fun to be around. I can’t oversell this, seriously, she’s awesome and I can’t say enough nice things about her and our experience with her as an agent!”
