Being from out of town we had a very short time to look for an investment property. Lee scheduled 30+ showings for us and all the condo’s we were interested in! We finally found the condo we wanted. He knows everything from start to finish, 1031 exchanges and has a lot of great contacts in the business. I highly recommend working with Lee Brewer and his team, professional, hard working, reliable, trust worthy and the best we have ever encountered!

- Lisa and Dave Seibel

We weren’t your typical sellers and Lee isn’t your typical realtor. Like many who fared poorly in the downward economical spiral, we struggled trying to sell our condo in a continuing “upside down market.” Rather than give up and give in, Lee aggressively took over our case with a stunningly effective and efficient sales strategy that brought more than one acceptable offer to the table. And, thanks to his tenacity, Lee spared us the misery of having to consider rock-bottom offers! His honest, above-board approach was refreshing and his confidence and commitment in selling the property never waivered. We highly recommend Lee to handle your next real estate sale or purchase. Sincerely, Gregg and Debra Kinney

- Gregg and Debra Kinney

Lee showed us around the Sarasota area and had very flexible hours. He even showed us properties on the weekends. During negotiations with the sellers, Lee made sure our interests were protected and got us a fair deal.

- Greg and Robin Richardson

Thanks again for the wonderful service. Frank J.

- Frank Justin

Lee Brewer has purchased and sold homes for me in the past. He is as constant as the northern star. What else could you ask for in a realtor?

- Robert Ispaso

Due to unfortunate circumstances, we were forced to sell our dream home in a short sale. Lee listed our home and worked closely with us throughout the entire process. There were many frustrating moments as is with any short sale transaction, but Lee kept everything moving smoothly and on track until we reached a successful closing. Lee is extremly knowledgeable in all areas of Real Estate but we found his knowledge of short sales to be impeccable. I would highly recommend Lee to anyone facing the challenges of selling their home in a short sale. His knowledge of the real estate market and short sale process is reassuring and his integrity, professionalism, attention to detail and positive attitude was a huge comfort to us through this difficult process.

- Bradenton, Florida

Words cannot adequately express our respect and gratitude for Mr. Joey Lamielle. As a professional he listens to his client’s needs and wastes no time fulfilling those needs. He sold our home in two days by pricing it right, helping us stage it correctly, having it professionally photographed and marketed online, and by immediately holding an open house. His negotiation skills are numerous–professional, tough, but extremely fair to the buyer and seller. He answers every question as fast as one could–he knows most of the answers immediately–if not, he gets the correct answer within hours. He has the right demeanor and personality for this line of work. For us, we initially went to him to buy a new home first! He listened carefully, provided us with many interesting opportunities, quickly negotiated and completed the deal we desired–including professional and expert referrals for mortgage and insurance AND then set us up with a terrific team to renovate our new place. Buying this new home and then selling our old home in a timely manner was paramount and Joey Lamielle came through big-time. If you want someone who gives a darn and is honest and smart and hard-working on YOUR behalf to satisfy YOUR wishes, go see Joey.

- Susan Molnar

I would recommend Joey Lamielle to all my friends and associates, he is well versed in the local market and his attention to detail is second to none. His ability to work with out of state buyers and coordinate inspections is certainly an asset to any buyer. I would not hesitate to use Joey Lamielle’s services again.

- Martin Vogt

Lee is the best all-around person and realtor ever. We love working with him. Wouldn’t even consider working with another realtor.

- Doug & Phyllis Fay

In early September, 2015, my fiancé and I were notified that our landlord would be selling the property we had been leasing and we had only 30 days to find a new home. After quick deliberations we decided it would be best to purchase a home of our own rather than to keep throwing money away in a rental. I am in the mortgage business and have been working with Lee Brewer for years, and he was instinctively my first call. I gave Lee our ‘wish list’ and price range and he set to work. We were looking at properties before I could even stop to breathe. The home that we took particular interest in was for sale by owner and he negotiated on our behalf and we were under contract in no time. Lee took the time to listen to us and walked us through the entire process of becoming homeowner’s. He was there to calm us when we were panicking and there to share in our excitement when the keys were handed over. Anytime someone asks for a Realtor referral, Lee Brewer is the only recommendation I will give. Thank you, Lee!

- Jennifer and Todd

If you need a realtor who will do everything he can to get you the home you need, this is the man for you! He and his wife Kris have bent over backwards to help us get a home that for our price range and needs. It took months upon months of searching and bidding, but he never gave up. His expert advice on the homes he shows is invaluable in letting me know what a house is worth and what you would have to spend on a home to make it up to par. His wife Kris is the financial person who guided us through the convoluted world of HUD home-buying. What a nightmare that is! If you need someone dedicated and expert in their knowledge, Lee is your guy! So thankful he came along.

- Junebelle

Lee is everything you want in a broker. He is knowledgeable, determined, personable, and works tirelessly for his clients. His understanding of the market and his extensive professional network reflects his years of service in real estate and puts him in a great position to make transactions happen that leave everyone happy. I will use no one else when doing business in Sarasota and the surrounding counties.

- Camachos

Lee was great to work with as we searched for our new home. Knowing nothing about the Sarasota area, we depended on him to advise us and he went above and beyond! We got several tours of Sarasota and surrounding communities as we toured through multiple houses over the course of a few months and he was never without anecdotal stories about what the area was like years ago (he was born and brought up here), which places were highly desirable, those that are up and coming, and those to avoid. Best tour guide realtor ever! We settled on a distressed property and he continues to support us in our rehab with contacts and advice. Thanks Lee! Nancy & Paul

- Nancy & Paul Luz

To say Lee goes the extra mile in your best interest is putting it lightly. He knows his stuff without a doubt and works tirelessly to get the deal done. Lee worked late nights several times keeping our deal alive. We were flustered and overwhelmed at times during the negotiation but Lee kept us cool and realistic. He kept pressing the negotiations even when it seemed hopeless. It’s that drive and determination that ultimately got our deal inked. I can directly attribute us getting our dream house to Lee and patience in that order. Lee is the agent you want on your side of the negotiation table without a doubt. I highly recommend him as an agent. Lee, you are the man! Just be careful flying those helicopters!

- Kevin Rees

We have worked with Lee Brewer for over three years and he has always been there with knowledge,creative solutions and timely responses. The best.

- Kasy Kane

Lee was wonderful in helping with my relocation from NJ to Sarasota. He worked non stop when I visited the area in February to find me a dream home and did a fabulous job negotiating the agreement with the sellers. In fact, he kept the deal alive while l worked through the mortgage process. If your looking for a knowledgeable,honest, and professional real estate agent, Lee is the person.

- Craig Wolpert

Having been Real Estate Broker much of my life, trained & working in most every aspect of this field , I find Lee’s professionalism very impressive. He is a pleasure to work with paying attention to details to satisfy his clients, both buyers & sellers. AND he is an all around nice person – not something that can always be said of Real Estate people! Thank you Lee for being who you are! I couldn’t appreciate this more.

- Janice M. Landauer

Lee is someone you can trust to find you the house you want, He listens to yours needs and truly cares about his clients, He is very experienced in the real estate field and knows how to get things done in an efficient and expeditious manner.

- Maria Aleman Rodriguez

Great work Lee and Kris. Thanks for the extra effort in sell g our house. Well we are “family” . You have been special to us for a long time.

- Ivan and Geri Martin

Lee is everything you want in a Realtor. He was born and raised in Sarasota. He knows his hometown like the back of his hand. He will work day and night to get you the home of your dreams or the perfect investment property. I highly recommend him. I only wish I could give him 10 stars!

- Letitia Ackles

We met Lee 3 years ago when looking at properties in Siesta Key, Sarasota, Osprey, and Venice. He took his time with us and was amazing to work with. Although at that time we did not purchase, 3 years later we were ready and he just helped us close on the perfect property. Lee is amazing not only because of his tremendous work ethic and communication skills, but he genuinely cares about making sure you are taken care of throughout the entire process. He truly has your best interests in mind and will not try to influence you in to a higher price point if he thinks it’s not in your best interests. Lee also has “a guy” for almost EVERYTHING that he has clearly vetted for decades and are fair, honest, and reliable. Lee brings so much more to the table than just the identification of property and the transaction. We highly recommend Lee for purchasing or selling real estate and will be recommending him to our friends and using him in the future. Thank you Lee for everything you do!

- Mark Schuwerk

Lee Brewer sold our home for full asking price within 21 hours of it going on MLS. The sale of the home fell apart the day before closing, but Lee said not to worry and within 24 hours we had 11 offers and ended up selling our home AGAIN for MORE than our asking price!!! He was available to us 24/7, night and day, and always took our calls and answered any questions or concerns we had with patience and confidence. We also used Lee’s services to help us find our current “dream” home. He helped us to get a home listed at the top of our price point and negotiated it down to a more comfortable level, and we couldn’t be more pleased! The money saved we put into making our home “perfect”. Thanks Lee!

- Michelle Bell

Lee Brewer is a man of action ! He gets it done. If you want exceptional service from a true professional, Lee is your man. We commend him for his integrity, honesty and my husband and I felt very confident in taking his advice. I found him helpful and very obliging, he never tired of taking me to see properties and gave me valuable advice., and expedited the sale in record time, for which we are grateful. Thank you Lee – you are a STAR !

- Chazette Mansfield

Thank you so much, Lee.
We have been in “moving” mode for 7 months. We needed more than the average home shopper. Lee met, and well exceeded, our needs. His knowledge, expertise, experience and professionalism are all way above par. Additionally, Lee’s foundational standards of honesty, ethics, and (most importantly) the ability to connect with people and really LISTEN – are what sets Lee apart from other agents. The difference you will find with Lee Brewer – is that he enjoys hard work, he really likes people, and he is happy to help in any way he can. Bottom line: Lee is a fantastic realtor AND he’s one of those people that is so comfortable to work with – he literally makes real estate transactions fun. That’s a tough combination to beat.

- Doug and Phyllis Fay

When I moved to Sarasota in 2010 I had gone through several different realtors. It seemed as though all the realtors I had met were inattentive, dishonest or lacked community knowledge. I found out about Lee Brewer through a Google search for realtors in Sarasota. Not having high hopes after all I had been through, I decided to give Lee a shot. Thank God I did! In just 2 short months I was able to learn tons about the Sarasota community from a true native. Lee listened to my wants and understood my needs and showed me tons of different properties within my price range. Being a single 20year old female at the time and a first time homebuyer I was extremely grateful for the amount of guidance Lee offered. I purchased my house in May of 2010 and it truly was a memorable experience because of Lee. I have recommended Lee to every person that I know in Sarasota. He is honest, knowledgeable and understanding. One day when I am ready to purchase my “family” home I will definitely hire Lee again! Best relator in Sarasota, hands down ?

- Donna Valles

Five stars is the highest rating on my scale and Lee Brewer deserves a solid five gold stars! I have been working with Lee Brewer acquiring investment properties in the Sarasota, FL, area for almost two years. Lee is a lifelong resident of Sarasota, FL and he has a depth of knowledge about the Sarasota, FL, real estate sales and the real estate management markets that is unmatched. Lee is respectful of his client’s budget and property requirements and he selects properties for consideration that reflect an understanding of both the market and the client’s needs. He is always looking out for the best interests of his clients. Lee has a wide network of contacts and he has been able to arrange closings for me on short notice. Lee also manages properties for me and is always ready for the challenges and opportunities that go with properties under management. I sincerely appreciate all that Lee is doing to help me achieve my goals! AJ

- Anne Juergensen

I met Lee Brewer at and open house in Manasota Key several years ago and purchased the beautiful gulf to bay home from him. Because of the great experience during that transaction, I called on him to help one of my employees do a short sale on their million dollar home in Miami. They too were very pleased with the results. He has now just recently sold my house on Manasota Key. I cannot say enough good about Lee, as through every transaction his knowledge and skill has been invaluable, but above all else, he puts his customer first, goes the extra mile and is a man you can trust – a rare find these days. I would recommend him to anyone.

- Jean Marc Girardin

Lee is the best Realtor I have ever worked with! He is extremely knowledgeable and is always available to answer any and all questions – he never stops working! He goes out of his way to help you find what you need, whether you’re buying or selling. To top it all off, he is also very friendly and funny!

- Tif Wegmann

Lee was highly recommended to us. I expected my Realtor to be a professional and to be personable. Lee Brewer was both. He was there every time I had a question or concern. He took the time and made sure that we were happy with our choice for a new home. I feel Lee went beyond what your average Realtor would do. What impressed me the most was the willingness Lee had to first show us homes we wanted to see and to take the time we needed to view a home, even when we asked 3 times to see the same house! I would tell my friends (which I have) that Lee is the guy you want in your corner when it comes time to purchase a home. Foremost, Lee is honest and up front with his clients and I value that in a professional.

- Cindy Puckett

Dear Laura,
Thank you so much for helping us find our dream vacation home in Punta Gorda. From the very beginning we felt very comfortable working with you even though it was over the phone and numerous e-mails over several months before we actually met. Upon meeting you, you exceeded our expectations with your warm personality, professionalism, and enthusiasm in helping us find the perfect place.
It took just a couple of days and even though we were interested in other locations, your suggestion to look in Punta Gorda turned out to be our best option. As a result, we found the perfect place for us for which we are very grateful. We have since spent a week there recently and love it even more.
We will always consider you not only a wonderful realtor but a good friend as well.

Elaine, Bob, and Cristina

Thank you for your diligence in getting a quick sale and the Professionalism you have shown as a Realtor and a Gentleman. We cannot think of anyone who could have done a better job and taken all of the avenues available to advertise and promote our home as well as you have done. Best wishes for a Happy Holiday Season and New Year 2014 with continued success, good health, and happiness!

- Bob and Terri Rebey

Lee will be highly recommended by me and my husband after helping us sell our home. He was extremely responsive and always available for our never ending stream of questions. His excellent knowledge of the market and negotiating skills saved us thousands. He is all you would want in a realtor to assist with one of the most important transactions you’ll ever make!

- Eve Johnson

While living in Sarasota Lee assisted me in purchasing my primary residence as well as some investment properties. His knowledge of the several micro neighborhoods throughout Sarasota is second to none. I explained what I wanted to purchase with several criteria and he found me exactly what I wanted at a great price in a neighborhood I did not know even existed. It could not have been any better.
Lee also understands the investment side of real estate. He knows what a property is truly worth and what price it needs to be purchased at in order to make money. As a result, I purchased several investment properties through Lee.
After moving back to Massachusetts I decide to sell one of my rental properties. Lee managed to whole process from remodel to the final sale. I did not have to worry about a thing. Lee was able to sell the property for much more than I could imagine.
Whether it would be purchasing a new home, an investment property or even selling an investment property or my personal home I would definitely have Lee be my Realtor. He should be yours too.
Finally, I would not hesitate to have Lee purchase or sell a property on my behalf without seeing it. He is that good.

- Todd Ciampolillo

I highly recommend working with Lee Brewer if you want your house to sell fast. This Gentleman is a professional in this business and he was able to sell my property for more than what we were hoping for. He always answers his phone and response to all emails within minutes. If the closing process slowing for any reason he will make sure that it wont. I would definitely recommend this gentleman to everyone buying or selling in the Sarasota- Manatee area.

- Derick Scarberry

My wife and I had used Lee some years ago for a short sale. He came to us recommended by another realtor we had done business with. Lee never treated us with disrespect and always made us feel informed during a difficult time. When it came time to buy again we had no question that we would use Lee as our realtor. He remembered us and quickly pointed us to mortgage brokers to get us pre-qualified. We were looking at houses the following weekend and were under contract during the next week. We had discussed with Lee the real value of the home, and with his exceptional knowledge of the area and his negotiation skills we were able to get the home for the lowest price we negotiated! Many thanks to Lee! We owe you dinner!! We would not hesitate to recommend Lee to any of our friends and colleagues. What a great experience made better by an exceptional realtor.

- Jeff and Laura Hughes

Lee is affective and thorough. Lee has sold two properties for us in the last two years and had done so in a matter of a few days. The use of technology to market our homes I believe makes the difference.
