In 2020, I have bought and sold a house with Michele. She is extremely knowledgeable and takes the nervousness out of the process. Michele went above and beyond with assisting me with getting my house market ready. From assisting with staging to her vast pool of reliable professional vendors. Her strategy and pricing was flawless as within 6 hours on the market I had my first offer, within 24 hours I was under contract, well over asking price! Michele was a paramount piece to ensuring the closing process went smoothly, even ahead of schedule. She is a great communicator who I relied upon take the lead in many aspects, which is greatly appreciated as a bust professional. I look forward to continue to grow my real estate portfolio with Michele! ~Emily B.

With 10 previous home sales for comparison, we can honestly say Michele Richie-Martin is the most knowledgeable, hard-working, tenacious, pro-active, and personable property manager and realtor imaginable. Michele has been the property manager for the Jacksonville home we owned and had rented out for 12 years. When it came time to sell, Michele formulated and implemented a plan to whip the house into marketable shape in record time. Using her connections in the contractor world and her own elbow grease, the house went on the market and was under contract within 24 hours for top dollar. A winning scenario for all involved and we’re happy to no longer be Florida homeowners.
Janice Larsen is a wonderful asset to the Realty Community. Janice goes above and beyond to make sure your dreams of home ownership become a reality. She is proactive with viewing listings and asking the right questions. Janice is flexible with her schedule to allow even working families the opportunity to shop the market in order to not miss out on current listings. I have worked with Janice on several home purchases and love her positive attitude and commitment. R.A.P. - Riverside Banking Associate
Working with Janice on finding our first home was such an amazing experience! She went above and beyond by sending us so many options and setting up viewings very quickly. Her automatic emails that notified us of all new listings were very useful. In the market we were buying in, houses were moving quickly so she would view our favorite houses first to help us prioritize our time. She made us feel like we were her only client. Once we did find our perfect home, she was so helpful in walking through the close process and making sure we got the best deal during negotiations. We will definitely use her again if we move from our current home, and recommend her to all our friends. We can't say enough about how amazing it was to work with her! - H. & M. C.
As our property manager and realtor for more than 10 years, Janice exceeded our expectations in every way. She is professional, knowledgeable, polite, resourceful and extremely helpful. When I started as a novice owner/investor, had little clue in handling situations that arises. Janice always took time to explain the circumstances in detail, presented the options and offered her professional opinion. You will benefit from her calm demeanor and business acumen as I did. - W.H.
"Catherine Beaver was great to work with during my time as HOA President. We had a number of difficult issues to address as I came onto the Board. She went out of her way to help address them. I found that she was a great strategic thinker - ie as we were dealing with issues, the question would be is this the source or a symptom of the problem. Her candor, smarts, and integrity made her a pleasure to work with."
We have been working with Cindy Sanders for the last three years and experience was excellent. Living in Canada makes it very hard to manage property in Florida. Cindy made it so worry free. I would recommend to anyone Cindy and Signature Reality.
Janice helped us to sell our house while we were living on the West Coast. She was very helpful with preparing our house to be listed on the market and to decide on an appropriate price for the house and the neighborhood it was located in. Janice is professional and knowledgeable about the current market. She provided guidance, but allowed us to make our own decisions. Janice is focused on service and always responded to our requests for information in a timely manner. She was very good about communicating about buyers and the feedback she was receiving. I highly recommend Janice as a listing agent.
Signature Realty has been our HOA's Property Management Company for the 12 years I have been president of the association. During those 12 years, I have worked with Gina Carrie on small issues and larger issues. She has been the best a person could hope for. She is always there to help. She does what she promises to do, and follows up on all problems, big and small. She has a great temperament and sense of humor, and knows her subject matter very well. I have been most fortunate to have someone of Gina's caliber to work with for these past years, and I hope the relationship continues for many more years.
Where do I start? I can't begin to sum up all of the things that my agent has done for me as a property manager. Since day one she has been a breath of fresh air. Let me start by saying I am a handicap veteran that is unable to get around and do things on my own. Due to this fact, I had to move out of Jacksonville and back to my hometown to be closer to my family. I was very apprehensive about leaving my home. I was worried about obtaining responsible renters, collecting rent on time and more about the upkeep of my home. This was my first home that I had built from the ground up so it's something I hold dear to my heart. Leaving it was a hard thing for me to do. She made the decision worthwhile. No matter what the task she handles it immediately without any hesitation. She makes sure the property is up to par at all times. She goes over and beyond the call of duty and I know that I couldn't have asked for a better agent. I have been away for a little over a year now and I no longer worry about my home in Jacksonville. I can concentrate on my family and getting healthy - worry free.
Iâ€™ve been using Signature Property Management services since 2006 to manage a couple of FL condo rentals since Iâ€™m an out-of-state owner. When I first investigated FL property management companies in the Jacksonville area, I narrowed it down from about six to two to one. Signatureâ€™s fee structure is very competitive. My rents are deposited into my â€˜condoâ€™ checking account on time every month so Iâ€™ve not experienced any cash flow issues. Signature seems to have a stable staff since Iâ€™ve had the same property manager for at least 5 years. Tammy Larrick knows the properties, the area, the condominium HOA mgmt. companies, me etc. so we have a very good working relationship. Whenever a vacancy occurs, we work together, check comps, and secure new tenants quickly â€“ in fact we just secured a tenant within one month of vacancy (March 31 vacant and new tenant moved in mid May 2013). Their tenant application process ensures that we secure good tenants who have the ability to pay on time as well as being screened for previous rental or tenancy history to include property upkeep. Tammy, my property manager, always contacts me when a repair is needed etc. and informs me of the costs. I have been happy with Signature and Tammyâ€™s services and would recommend them.
I have been using Signature Realty & Management as my property manager for many years. I am in California but am so happy I have them to look after my property in the Jacksonville area. Tammy Larrick They has done a great job. They have also handled a short sale of one of the properties for me and they really hung in there with me through thick and thin to get the sale approved by the lender.
I want to thank Barbara Johnson so much for her kindness and patience helping us get settled in our new rental that she manages. She made our stay here very pleasurable. I definitely recommend Signature Realty's company for rental needs!
I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the fine job that Sue Teague does managing my 7 rental properties. Sue handles all the management, rentals, and inspections of my properties in a professional way. She is great communicating with the tenants and getting repairs done in a timely manner. Anyone who owns rental properties will tell you that re-renting a house every year is an expensive proposition; painting, cleaning, advertising and loss of rental income while it is vacant can be costly. Long term tenants are very valuable to the bottom line. Many of the tenants rent with me for several years and I attribute this to Sue's communication skills with the tenants. She does an exceptional job with all the details involved with renting and maintaining my properties, she always returns my phone calls and emails promptly which I definitely appreciate. I would recommend Sue Teague to anyone who is looking for a loyal, efficient and professional property manager. Many thanks to Sue for all she has done for me!
I met Janice back in 2010 when my husband and I began renting a property through Signature Realty and Management. As a property manager, she was always there if there were any problems that occurred. Because of professionalism and dedication, I wanted her as my realtor when my husband and I decided to purchase our first home. Her service and expertise was awesome. Since it was our first home she told us that finding that perfect home could be a difficult task but she informed us that she would always be there to help us get through the process. In October of 2011, we began looking and needless to say she was right about finding the perfect house. However, she knew what we wanted and she took the time to send me open houses that were on the market based off of our set criteria. It took months and my husband and I never found that perfect house so Janice asked if we thought about building. Because we trusted Janice, we began looking at builders. In August of 2012, we began construction on our first home. I would like to thank Janice for being there every step of the way. She calmed my nerves when I would get nervous. She became more than my realtor, she became a friend because of all of her caring and compassion. In January of 2013, we closed on our first home and we owe all of the thanks to Janice and her hard work and dedication to making us feel as if we were her only customer."
Our manager takes care of everything with our rental property so I don't need to worry with it. Truly hands off except for depositing rental checks! I went with Signature because of our manager and have not regretted that decision once.
We have an outstanding agent, she always finds someone very quickly to rent our home. She takes the extra time and effort to accommodate me and my Tenants in having a pleasant experience. I recommend her very highly because she is a very competent and professional in her real estate expertise.
Very Satisfied with Signature Realty & Management and our property manager. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest), I would place the quality of work at least 9.5.
Our manager is a prompt, very knowledgeable, fantastic realtor to work with. She met me at the property on short notice, guided us with what we needed to do, and had the unit rented in less than 2 weeks. She stayed in communication with us the entire time. She's a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
We have an outstanding property manager. She takes care of the properties at a reasonable cost without over-communicating with me (the property owner). She gets results quickly on repairs and is quick to respond to requests and questions. She is very experienced in finding tenants, and I like her approach about targeting long term tenants. She understands that having a rented property helps everyone involved. She also has excellent negotiating skills when it comes to the rent too. I've enjoyed working with Signature - they're the best!
My wife and I own several rental properties and we've had the pleasure of working with Janice Larsen for over nine years. Prior to meeting Janice we had the unfortunate experience of dealing with tenants who refused to pay their rent and destroyed our property. We were referred to Janice and since then are happy to say we have never lost a month rent and our properties are always left in excellent condition. She has even organized for tenants to move in the same day an existing tenant moves out. Janice screens and chooses our tenants carefully, always finding us good quality tenants. Over the years we have also referred Janice to our family and friends who are also very happy with her services. We travel frequently for our jobs and Janice handles every detail with our properties which affords us peace of mind. We could not be more pleased with the service Janice provides. Thanks to Janice - she is awesome!
Michele Richey-Martin was our realtor in purchasing our first home. Not only was it scary because it was our first house, but because we were also purchasing from out of state. We didn't know the area or where to even begin. Michele found a list of houses that met our requests and within our budget. She was honest with us and very patient - she even helped out with our 1 year old who just wanted Michele to hold her at times! We are now settled into our first home and even though the papers are signed and Michele is "done" with us, we still call her for advice and how-to's on certain things. She even built a crawl space screen for us! She has gone above and beyond what we ever expected and are so grateful that we went through her. She made us feel secure in our thoughts and never mislead us. We owe a lot to Michele and can't thank her enough!
My name is Jeff Buck and I have recently returned home from deployment in Iraq. I wanted to take a moment to let you know how helpful and professional Michele has been to myself and my two other roommates, both while we were gone and since we have returned. Not only did she get us one of the most fabulous houses in Jacksonville Beach, but she was flawless in doing so. Her dedication to the cause and extreme efforts was second to none. I can't tell you how much it has meant to us. She is second to none! She was an absolute pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her for future engagements.
George saved us a lot of time and money when we bought our home. His home buyer service is first rate. We love our new home and highly recommend George.
We were greatly impressed with George's honesty and integrity. We highly recommend him to anyone buying a home.
"I am very satisfied with the way George Harris is managing my property, handling communications and taking care of incidental issues as they arise. Thank you very much for your meticulous approach - I really appreciate it. I am happy to be a reference for George."
George worked with us a long time to help us qualify for a great loan. He found us a gorgeous home and we're very happy. He is wonderful to work with.
I had my home on the market for almost a year with another company. George sold it in 3 months, at my price! Now I am in my dream home that George found me. He is the best!
We nearly gave up looking before we met George. He helped us find our new home fast and was a pleasure to work with.
George's knowledge of real estate is very impressive. His persistent hard work paid off for us. We own a beautiful home that we absolutely love and we are confident we got a good deal thanks to George.
I had been under contract with a big-name property management company for my condo for four years. It took them months to find a renter, the advertising was abysmal, I was forced to drop my asking price way below value. As for the manager, I honestly don't think she set foot on the property and she never returned my calls. I knew I needed something better and boy did I find it. Michele Richey-Martin is the most professional, motivated manager I could ask for. Not only did she handle the task of getting a neglected property completely overhauled and ready for renting, but in less than a month I had a quality tenant at asking price. Michele went above and beyond to take care of my condo and consulted me every step of the way. She took my investment seriously and legitimately cared for my concerns. Being in the military and hundreds of miles away, I need to ensure that I have someone in charge of my property that I can fully trust and Michele has consistently proven her expertise. I am truly blessed to have found her.
Thank you very much to Michele Richey-Martin for being the "Consummate Professional>" She gave very exclusive service in my search for a condominium for my mother. I put Michele through the ringer trying to locate the perfect condo, wanting every item on my wish list fulfilled and she came through with flying colors. She went out of her way, taking time on her busy weekends to search for, answer my MANY questions and make appointments for showings to fit my schedule. Her pleasant outlook and positive attitude when things looked bleak kept my spirits high and we finally found the perfect condo. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for the "consummate professional" for their real estate needs.
Thank you for helping our family find a home during our move to Florida. Michele Richey-Martin's knowledge of the local communities made it possible for us to find a house in the short time given while her professionalism and attention to detail was exceptional during the purchase process. We are very happy with our new home and neighborhood. It is a wonderful place to raise a family!
Michele made the experience of buying a home a pleasant one. She went above and beyond and took care of everything! Michele is very knowledgeable and professional and very easy to work with.
The process of purchasing a home can be extremely stressful and time consuming. Michele Richey-Martin, from start to finish, was a true advocate for me as a buyer and made sure I found the right property at the right price. She was steadfast in negotiating with the seller and I was always confident she had my best interests in mind. She truly cares about the way her clients are treated and takes a personal interest to assure you're satisfied. I would definitely use her again if I were to purchase another home.
Janice Larsen made what is known to be one of the most stressful times in a person's life, a relatively smooth process in our first-time home buying journey. She was knowledgeable, responsive, professional and understood exactly what we were looking for. She went over and above the call of duty by providing details along the way and helping us in our search to stick to the home we wanted and she found the perfect home for us. We have lived in our home for over a week now, and are more convinced every day that we made the best decision with Janice's help. Janice is the real deal, representing all that her company, Signature Realty & Management stands for. Our family recommends her services hands down!
Janice has been our realtor and property manager now for over 8 years. She has managed our 4 properties over these years and we are delighted with her service. She is a true professional and exemplary in her field. Our properties are rented promptly to high quality tenants who take excellent care of the property. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a premier real estate agent or property manager.
I want to thank Janice for all her hard work in managing our two properties. She manages them so well we tend to forget we have rental properties. Any time there is an issue she quickly acts on whatever the issue may be, trying to resolve and come up with the best solution. We hank her very much for all her hard work.
Mrs. Janice Larsen has managed my rental property for about 7 years. When I interviewed her at the first time, I knew that she was the right person for managing my property. For all these years she is a very dedicated person with strong professional management skills. She deals with all the rental problems on behalf of the owner's interests. I am very happy to have her and trust her 100%
I want to take a moment to write and thank Janice Larsen. As my property manager for some eighteen months, four of which I was on an overseas deployment with the Navy and then my realtor for an additional seven, Janice has been a semi-constant fixture in the life of our family for over two years. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Janice and cannot express how constantly impressed I was with her. From her excellent and timely communication to her punctuality and organization, to her boundless patience and genuine concern for my family's interest, Janice far and away surpassed any expectation that either my wife or I had. Not only would we absolutely do business again with Janice, should the opportunity ever be afforded, I will unhesitatingly pass her contact information to any of my friends or former co-workers who are in need of a real estate professional in Jacksonville.
I have worked with Janice now for over 5 years. The best way to describe her is "On Top of Things!" I was first a renter in a property she was managing then used her services as a realtor when I was ready to buy. Shortly after purchasing, I married, moved out and needed a property manager to rent out my townhouse. In each scenario I have found Janice to be knowledgeable, reliable, timely and fair. As renter, purchaser and client I always felt she was looking out for everyone's best interest and provided all the information to help me make the best choices. Janice takes the worry and hassle out of renting out a property and she is a pleasure to work with.
My family would like to thank Janice for going beyond her responsibility as a property manager in helping us with our latest transition. We sold our home in Charlotte closed on August 30, so as soon as our lease ends here we will be looking to buy and will keep Janice's contact information. I usually don't give out referrals but in Janice's case, if the conversation arises about buying or renting in this area, I will not hesitate to mention her and her professionalism. Thanks to Janice for being there!
We have been tenants for almost 2 years under Janice Larsen as our property manager. We are very satisfied and would highly recommend her to anyone.
Janice has been a truly wonderful property manager and I never worry about the house!
Janice Larsen is an extremely competent and conscientious property manager. She follows through on her commitments and keeps the client informed on the progress on a regular basis. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a property manager.
Janice Larsen has managed my 4 properties I Springfield since I moved to live in England in 2007. We have been through the worst of times in the real estate market and she has always been able to keep my properties rented. Janice has always been able to get top quality people in the houses. She keeps me informed of how things are going in the area and how my tenants are doing. Whenever there are maintenance problems, Janice has given me the best solutions to the problems. I cold not ask for a better property manager. Thanks to her for all her hard work.
I leased my home almost 4 years ago from Janice and she has always stayed on top of any issue I ever had. But luckily the home I leased is in wonderful neighborhood and great school for my daughter and I haven't had any real issues. I only had to call for her help one time because I did not have a ladder to change the fire alarm and she immediately called in a handy man to assist. She inspects the home on scheduled appointments and lease contract has been renewed for the 4th year because I am so pleased with her communication with me and with the owner. When it is time to move, I want Janice to assist me on locating another great home like this one.
Thanks to Janice for her excellent service to my account over the past 4 years. She has found 2 excellent candidates to rent my condo and has taken care of the repairs that come during the years. I am happy that we have recently signed a new contract.
I would just like to say thank you to Janice! I have been renting the townhome in which she has been the realtor going on my 4th year. I have not reported too many incidences but for the times that I have, she has always been very responsive. She always returns my call within 24 hours even on the weekends and she ensures that if any repairs are needed that they are taken care of immediately. When my lease has come up for renewal she has been able to explain to me the rental expectations in my area. Her knowledge of the industry has made me feel comfortable in knowing that I am not being taken advantage of as a leaser. Also for the times she has needed to do the annual inspection of the home, she works around my schedule and comes after business hours. I work in the mortgage industry and have had my share of dealing with realtors. As a loan processor, I like to make sure that the clients purchase of a new home goes as smoothly as possible. I am amazed when I reach out to some realtors for assistance, they are not available and do not respond to my calls or emails. Some even push everything back on the client. I know that a good realtor is one that will take care their client from beginning to end. Janice Larsen is that realtor.
