Mr. Phil Annunziato
Luke Brown Yachts
3204 57th Street, East
Bradenton, FL 34208
We want to thank you for the extraordinary professionalism, service and results we experienced as a result of listing and selling our Marlow Explorer through you and Luke Brown Yachts. We had a large number of brokers desirous of this listing, but we selected you based on your flawless industry reputation. Your performance exceeded everything we had previously heard.
There is a unique art to deal making. It requires likeability and tremendous interpersonal skills, meticulous and time consuming preparation, thoughtful presentation, the ability to carefully negotiate and the intricate gift of both buyer and seller knowing they made the best deal possible. Most important: it requires unimpeachable integrity.
Most assuredly, you definitely possess these skills.
Specifically, in a lukewarm market, you had “Dutch” under contract 27 days after listing; we had 2 backup buyers; the timing for the sea trial and survey was as promised and the transaction closed within 60 days post-listing at a price greater than we paid 3 years earlier. That Phil is a result without parallel.
Continued good fortune as you consistently distinguish yourself from others with a performance that is short on promises, but long on results. Please do not hesitate to share this letter and our phone number with others who might be considering your services.
Randy & Kim Jeffery
