“It was our pleasure to work with Gail, Ian and Barbara on the sale of our condo in Longboat Key Club and the purchase of a new condo at Beachplace. Since we live in Indiana, having a local expert and advocate was essential. Their entire team is extremely professional. Their attention to detail is exceptional. They went above and beyond the call of duty on both transactions. They packed our owner's closet at our old unit, and coordinated repairs, walk-throughs, etc. on the new unit, among ot...”

“Ian, Gail and Heather were an outstanding team from our first contact through, and after, closing. We continue to communicate as needed as little follow through items come up. This has been our best real estate agent/agency experience ever. And this was a complex transaction, especially given the many new variables that continue to add to the work of a real estate professional. Ian's knowledge of the local market is truly outstanding in detail and depth. I highly recommend them and especia...”

“I thank the Addy Wittig team for all the work they did to make the sale of our condo a very smooth journey. I so appreciate the opportunity to meet everyone. They did a fantastic job of picking up and attending to every detail. It was so comforting to know that although I was in Illinois, I was never forgotten by Gail, Ian, and Barbara. After my daughter & I interviewed three agents, we knew they were the right agent for us. Since my daughter is a top Realtor in Illinois, she and I both knew wha...”

“Working with Gail Wittig, Barbara Milian and Ian Addy was the best experience we’ve ever had with a realty team. We put our Grand Bay condo on the market expecting that it would take at least six months to sell and to our surprise, it sold in six weeks. They were extremely professional and gave excellent advice and as long as we have a property in the Sarasota area, we will use the Addy Wittig Team with Michael Saunders & Company.”

“The Addy Wittig Team was a recommendation from a friend of mine so I had fairly high hopes heading into the process, but am happy to report they exceeded even my highest expectations. I worked primarily with Gail and Barbara who were both very knowledgeable of the area and very patient with my many questions.
