Brad and his company always responded. He was willing to advise, but never pressure either way. They were professional and a joy to have as an agent. The office had the knowledge to explain each step in the process and I would use them again. 04/28/2014 - kathy.mizell Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Winter Haven, FL. – By Design Real Estate Services
Brad and his team worked overtime to make our complex purchase as smooth a transition as possible. They have a lot to offer and always do it with a smile. My family and I highly recommend Brad Martin ! 10/29/2014 - Cpi_wh Bought a home in 2014 in Eloise Woods, Cypress Gardens, FL 33884 – By Design Real Estate Services
He is very very truthful and honest about your home. He will be there whenever there is someone viewing your home, even though he isn't showing it today. He makes sure that the home looks the way it should, and makes sure that the lights etc. are all at the desired levels when he leaves the property. He has great taste and is very helpful getting your home ready to be shown. 02/05/2015 - ltorgler78 Other service. Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
Brad (with ByDesignRealestate) came highly recommended by a family member. He was a breath of fresh air as my wife and I had just had a bad experience with another local realtor. Brad is very knowledgeable about the area and we noticed a lot of expertise in negotiating. He was always available and very reassuring through a stressful home-buying process. This was our first home purchase and we feel it was made very easy due to his vigilance and expertise. When we found our forever home, Brad could sense immediately that my wife and I were in agreement and had found our house. He had gotten to know our tastes and preferences over the house hunt search. He was a quick study. Without hesitation, we will certainly utilize his services again. 02/05/2015 - Bobby Allison Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Auburndale, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
Brad was professional from our first meeting. His knowledge of the area, the market and the means to advertise the property effectively in today's social media dominated marketing world was spot on. For anyone looking to sell or buy a home and focused on working with a true professional who makes your happiness and peace of mind his first priority, Brad and his family will take very good care of you. I would work with Brad again without hesitation. He understands this business, but realizes buying or selling a home is much more than just business, it's personal. 02/05/2015 - Jon La Pan Sold a home in 2015 in Lucerne Park, Lake Hamilton, FL 33881 – By Design Real Estate Services

Brad handled the sale of our home in a highly professional manner, helping us set the sale price, prepare the house for sale and placing the home on the market. We had a contract in six days. Brad then helped us through the inspection, preparation and closing processes, all done in a highly professional manner. Brad is knowledgeable, personable and wise to the ways of the market place. A good man and an excellent realtor. 02/06/2015 - gator.bob Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services

Brad has sold two homes for us and we have been very pleased with him, unlike other realtors that we have used in the past he always returned our calls keeping us up to date on the market in our area and advising us on how to make our home sell. If you are buying or selling a home give Brad a call you will always get his best effort. 08/13/2015 - murphreejc Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Haines City, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
Brad Martin is not only a "Lister" he is a "Seller." Totally professional, knowledgeable, and helpful at every step of the selling process. He made sure he was present at every showing of our home and highlighted all updates and best features to all potential buyers. He is supported by a great staff and always available. 08/13/2015 - Cindy Bruce Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
We worked with Brad on selling our home. He guided us through the process, indicating what changes we needed to make and helped us, "stage" the house for showing. Brad placed ads on both the internet and local publications. Six days after the ads appeared, we sold the house for approximately 97% of our asking price. He, and his firm, then guided us through the closing process, which went as smoothly as possible. Brad Martin is a highly respected professional who is knowledgeable, personable and dedicated to his clients. You will not find a better person nor a better realtor. 08/14/2015 - GATOR BOB Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
My wife and I were looking for our retirement home and very lucky we found this young lady to help us. Extremely knowledgeable of the area, knows the ins and outs of her business and supplies you with the kind of help and support you need from the very beginning. Not just another sales person, not by a long shot. She deeply cares about your satisfaction, walks you through the purchase hassle smooth as silk and if you have a lender you are working with, count on her to be there to assist with details most of us get frustrated over. Truly a full service experience. If you are need of a great realtor.....just hire her now. You will be happy you did! Lawrence and Brenda Smith 09/09/2015 - lsmith fss Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
Very Professional and helpful in the entire process. They go out of their way to help you and above and beyond. I really appreciate the Martin's and enjoy working with them. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to sell their real estate! 11/24/2015 - user69459249 Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
My home was listed on a Friday and on Tuesday (4 days) Brad and his team had my home sold and with his legendary negotiating skill, we ended up with $4,000.00 over appraisal. The entire process I was blown away with Brad and his team. They know everyone in the business and know how to get things done. I would and will use By Design for my next home and highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling any property. Thank You By Design........ 11/26/2015 - ljrsports Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Lake Alfred, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
Brad helped us sell our home very quickly. We received the price we were looking for and he handled everything professionally, keeping us informed throughout the whole process. We highly recommend his team! 12/14/2015 - Greensmkt Sold a home in 2015 in Lucerne Park, Lake Hamilton, FL 33881 – By Design Real Estate Services
I listed my two houses with another local realtor but never felt like they were really making an effort to sell our houses. I noticed another house in our neighborhood that Brad sold very quickly and for a good price, so I opted to give him a try. He was very proactive and seemed to go well beyond the ordinary efforts made by most realtors, of just listing your house on MLS and moving on to the next one. I highly recommend Brad. 12/14/2015 - zuser20151109053123357 Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
I had to sell a house in a different state from where I live. Brad made the process very easy. He found a buyer for the house right after it was listed! He was very helpful during the whole process of selling the house. 01/07/2016 - Capufly Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
Brad is an expert in the Winter Haven real estate market, especially our gated community. He went out of his way to help manage the property after we had left town, which was greatly appreciated. Rhonda made the closing process go smoothly, providing documents promptly over the internet and assisting with the paperwork that may inundate sellers. The Martin team are helpful, efficient and available at all times to get the job done! We would highly recommend them without hesitation! 01/16/2016 - xpapadopoulos Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $775K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
I can whole heartedly recommend Brad and by Design Realty. As a real estate Investor, I had the opportunity to have Brad represent me twice and both times, he created top dollar, quick sales for me. Top notch and outstanding advice that paid off in multiples! 01/29/2016 - Crafool Sold a home in 2016 in Lucerne Park, Lake Hamilton, FL 33881 – By Design Real Estate Services
They are simply the best. They know the market, They know their clients. They are experienced and very professional. They are experts at negotiations as well. I have used them before and will continue too. I highly recommend them and do so without reservation. 02/01/2016 - gjraf Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $200K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
Our house had been on the market for 6 months without any results, so we switched agents to Brad. Within 2 days of listing it, it was under contract! We credit the expertly shot photographs of our home for the quick sale. Since 95% of buyers look online first, photos are the top priority and our photos were exceptional. Brad and his whole team are on the cutting edge of real estate and I have already recommended him to several friends. 03/16/2016 - zechiel89 Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $300K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
It was a pleasure to work with Brad Martin and his associates. They were there for us every step of the way. Our home sold after 1 week on the market. We highly recommend By Design. 03/16/2016 - dana baxter Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $150K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
We saw our Dream Home come on the market with Brad as the Listing Agent, we called, saw the home and made an offer on the second day! Brad and Bre directed us to the right people for financing and the rest is history. I would highly recommend using Brad and his associates for a purchase or sale of a home. 03/17/2016 - rlspatterson Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $300K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
I don't know where to begin. Starting on the personal side Brad and Rhonda are some of the nicest, honest, and respectful people I have ever dealt with. On the professional side every single thing from the advice on the asking price, the fantastic pictures, and the negotiation of the sale price was excellent. The communication which is so important when you have people coming over almost every day was great, they are on top of every detail. I'm leaving out so much because I honestly can't say enough. If you want a true PROFESSIONAL that will sell your house as opposed to some agent that will list your property you have found the right place. 03/21/2016 - zuser20151123151003036 Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
I couldn't have been more pleased w/ the experience We had with Brad & Rhonda! They made us feel like old friends that go way back! Everything went smooth throughout the entire process! We would recommend them to anyone who is in search of buying or selling! 04/22/2016 - user2449416 Bought a home in 2016 in Lake Shipp Heights, FL 33880 – By Design Real Estate Services
Brad, Rhonda, and Bree went above and beyond to help us sell, purchase, buy (a very specific type of home and property) and find an amazing lender. I cannot begin to tell you what an awesome group of people these are to work with. If you have any housing needs they will help you get the place of your dreams even if it means working late and on weekends. They treat you like family! Thank you so much Brad Martin and family for selling our old house and finding our (needle in the haystack) home we were dreaming of! You guys are one of a kind!! 04/26/2016 - user1463070591 Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $275K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
We are so pleased with the service we received from Brad and Bree. We are out of state buyers and they made everything so easy for us. We flew down on short notice to see the home and Brad was more than willing to adjust his schedule so he could meet us on a weekend on such short notice. We saw our "dream home" and began the process of purchasing it. Brad gave us names of inspectors for the home and septic. All of them were professional and got back to us immediately with verbal reports followed by written ones. I would definitely recommend Brad. He has excellent work ethics and professionalism. 04/26/2016 - zuser20140227101158815 Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $225K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
Brad has a great balance of personality and professionalism. He is a good listener and is highly responsive. He offers several options and helps his clients weigh the pros and cons of each of them. I felt very confident in allowing Brad to manage what can be a stressful process. 04/27/2016 - cmmillan Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $350K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services

A great "listener". NOT an "order taker" For a seller..Brad is very strategic in his marketing approach! Attention to detail and good follow-up. Communicates with a sense of urgency but yet not pushy. 07/16/2016 - user00345038 Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $425K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
Brad was always prompt, courteous and very knowledgeable. I had a contract on my home before the for sale sign was even put in the yard! The contract was written on June 11, 2016 and the closing was July 7, 2016. I could not be happier with the whole process of this sale. I would highly recommend Brad and his team. They were all very helpful and very nice to work with. 07/19/2016 - user818801 Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $250K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services

Highly recommend. 10/12/2016 - ufgatorsz Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $250K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
My contact was with Brad from day 1. He was very willing to help me with any questions and or concerns i had whether about listing my home or with trying to find another home 1st..without committing my listing to him. Since i needed to find another home in a different city he was quick in introducing me to the right person to help. His staff was wonderful to work with anytime I called for help and he was in a meeting they were right there to answer any of my questions and if they couldn't (which was rare) he always returned my calls promptly. As i had recently lost my husband he was very understanding and reassuring for me as i worked through my decision to make this difficult move of a lifetime..... 10/23/2016 - gatorheadz Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $175K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services

I could not have been more satisfied with the process with the By Design team. We bought a home listed by Brad and felt comfortable enough with him and the team that we also listed our home to sell with him. Brad was helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. He was especially helpful in the negotiation process. Each member of the staff that I came in contact with was very professional and knowledgeable. I would certainly recommend By Design to anyone who is buying or selling a home! 12/07/2016 - mtinv4u8 Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $575K in Winter Haven, FL – By Design Real Estate Services
