Lou helped my family purchase a home this year.  He has a construction background was able to point out details we may have missed during our walkthroughs.  He was also very patient and did not mind when I brought my children along.

Amber and Nick

We went through three realtors before we found Lou Simonetti. He is personable, knowledgeable and a phenomenal realtor. Lou went out of his way to find us our first home. He listened to what we were looking and didn't stop until he found it. When touring through homes, Lou made an effort to point  out all of the positive and negative aspects while giving us history about the neighborhood. He is in this business not for the money but to satisfy his customers. You will not be disappointed with him as your realtor.

My wife and I had the opportunity to meet Lou Simonetti, with Marlin International Realty in the last 1 to 2 months. Mr. Simonetti, was very helpful and thorough during our home search and ultimate purchase of our dream home in Florida. He assisted us with all aspects or our purchase from lender  to closing. His expertise in real estate, his patience, and willingness to work along side with us was very much appreciated. We would certainly recommend working with Lou.

Jim and Angie Horvath

Lou Simonetti assisted me in purchasing my first home. Starting this process I was very scared and had no idea what to expect. From the very beginning Lou was very knowledgeable and did an amazing job explaining everything to me. He kept in contact with me throughout the process and helped to  ensure a smooth closing. Although I hope to stay in my new home for years to come, I can not wait to work with Lou again. I would recommend Lou and Marlin Realty to anyone I know. I am confident in his abilities for all your home buying needs. Thanks Lou for an awesome job and making a very stressful and emotional process very easy and quick

Lou Simonetti, is the best realtor we have ever worked with, he always goes above and beyond the call of duty.  We have utilized his services on the sales side as well as the buyer side and had exceptional experiences with both.  His industry knowledge combined with his attention to detail are second to none.  We would absolutely refer anyone who is buying or selling in the SWFL region to Marlin Realty and will definitely use their services in any future real estate needs.

Experience and work ethic makes a difference!  The photography and online presence were very well done and we received a good offer very quickly.  I had complete trust and confidence in how everything was handled especially given we were living abroad.  I have no hesitation recommending Lou or having him as my realtor in the future.

Nancy Williams

When we found a house he was right on it and we looked at it that day! He fought hard for us and always did 100%. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He made the process of buying my first home a little less stressful.

Jessica Agostino

Lou is a realtor that I would not hesitate to refer if you are looking for a realtor. He was recommended to me by some friends of mine who used him when they bought their house. He is a man who knows the ins and outs of home construction. I would look at a condo and think it was o.k. Lou would look at the electric box to see if it was up to code, he checked under the sinks for leaks, he looked at the roof to see if it needed to be replaced, he pointed out if there were enough ceiling fans or lack of them, he checked out the appliances. Nothing escaped him, good or bad. I felt very confident that he would not steer me wrong and have me purchase a condo that had issues. He also has a beautiful disposition and a sense of humor. I was not an easy client to work with but Lou never lost patience with me, for which I am truly thankful. I am now enjoying the fruits of his labor. I bought the right condo for the right price. Thank you, Lou

Beverly Cadunzi

My husband and I had rental properties in Cape Coral that we needed to sell as quickly as possible. Lou Simonetti was recommended to us through a mutual friend and it turned out to be a good choice. Lou knew we needed someone to take over the responsibility of handling the details and keeping it as stress free as possible for both of us; he did just that. We would recommend Lou Simonetti to anyone wanting to sell or buy a property. Lou is a “no nonsense” professional and will do a good job for you.

Bill and Sue Lottridge

If you need a realtor with experience, please call Lou & Judy Simonetti. It seems everyone knows someone who sells real estate, but to find someone knowledgeable of all of Lee county, its neighborhoods and regulations is unbeatable. Knowing how fast homes were being sold, Lou worked with our crazy schedules to make sure we saw each one that interested us. He never let us feel like we were bothering him or overwhelming him with our wish list. And he was able to give us detailed info on each neighborhood and builder. He patiently walked us through making an offer and every step of our final sale. His guidance and follow through was very professional, yet such a friendly guy! Judy too! My husband and I now own a beautiful home ( on half an acre, which we had given up ever finding) at a fantastic price and are grateful to them.

Jane and Pete Miragliotta

In the spring of 2015, we began a search for property in Cape Coral, Florida. Through an acquaintance, we had the good fortune to meet Lou Simonetti, a local realtor. Lou proved to be an extremely valuable asset because of his extensive knowledge of the history and the properties in the Fort Meyers and Cape Coral areas. Lou was quick to ascertain our needs and to respond by providing properties that met those needs. He willingly offered to spend whatever time we needed to visit properties in which we had an interest and to provide all relevant information. Because Lou has many years in real estate, he was extremely helpful through the entire process of negotiating a successful purchase. Throughout the process, Lou was very congenial and his disposition gave us confidence that we were working with a reputable individual in the real estate business. We have no problem in confidently recommending Lou Simonetti to our friends and those reading this review. Sara and Bernie

Dolores Shugert

We worked with Lou for 3 years searching for a vacation home in Cape Coral. We travelled there twice to look at multiple homes. Lou always made himself available to spend entire days with us looking at possibilities and discussing the virtues and downfalls of each property. Lou was very knowledgeable about the issues that are common to that area and pointed them out to us. He was also knowledgeable about the neighborhoods and the things that increase value and bring value down. Over the course of the 3 years we worked together we asked him to go view multiple homes on our behalf and he always fit that into his busy schedule. He saved us from making multiple unnecessary trips. He took lots of photos and pointed out issues in the photos. He knew what we did and didn’t want in our home and steered us away from bad choices. He was always willing to put in offers and do the necessary paperwork, work with the sellers to get us the deal we wanted, and never complained when we walked away when we weren’t satisfied. When we finally found the right home at the right price, he worked diligently and quickly to get everything accomplished on our behalf. We only needed to make one short trip to view the house and be there for inspection. Everything was handled by email and he was very patient with our lack of technology skills. He provided us with multiple contacts for every need every step of the way and made the whole process stress less. We hope to buy more homes there in the future and we wouldn’t work with anyone else.

Jeanne Esposito

Lou with Marlin International Realty helped us find our new home in Southwest Florida.

Lou was patient and responsive while showing us homes.  He was extremely informative about what to look for regarding the upkeep of homes we looked at.  Lou was consistently organized and handled our house search professionally.  Super job!

Kevin & Beth Dunmire

Lou Simonetti was very knowledgeable about Real Estate and was very helpful on selling my house.  Everything he said he would do, he did.  He followed up and kept us informed right to the day of closing.  I would recommend Lou to anyone selling or buying a home.

Robert and Alma Rabe

Marlin International Realty is by far the best real estate company we have ever worked with.  They were able to get our house under contract, with one of their own buyers, within 14 days.  They are knowledgeable about the market, have great resources to utilize, and were proactive throughout the whole process.  This was the most efficient real estate transaction we have even been through, with great communication from start to finish.  We would recommend this company to anyone and will definitely utilize their services in the future. 

Kristy and Riaan Potgieter

This was my first home and I thought it would be an overwhelming process.  Lou listened to everything I was looking for and set up appointments on the weekend to work with my schedule.  He explained things I should be looking for and what to avoid as we would walk through potential houses.  I couldn’t have asked for a better agent. He really made the whole process exciting and easy.

Megan Lynch

Lou was very straightforward with regards to expectations on selling our home which we really appreciated. There are realtors out there that will promise to sell your home at a larger cost to get the listing and it sits on the market for months. He made a promise to have our home sold within 45 days and we were confident in the price he listed it at. We were moving to another state and it was important to have it sold fast, but priced right. Lou lived up to his promise and had an offer on our home within 36 days. What we valued the most about Lou was his constant communication throughout the closing process. There were some issues with the previous title and Lou worked closely with the title company and provided us updates throughout. Lou truly went above and beyond his call of a realtor and we would use him again if we decide to purchase another home in the SW Florida area. He truly is the “Name that Gets Results.”

Eric and Kristen Mingione

I would highly recommend Lou Simonetti for your realtor. Lou helped us find our dream home with patience and insight as to the best location, value of the property, and even after the sale he was there to recommend names for different services we needed. Lou is an honest, down to earth gentleman. You can’t go wrong with Lou!

Diane Moore

I had such a great experience with Lou Simonetti while my husband and I were shopping for our first home here in sunny Florida. He took what we were looking for seriously and was able to find us our perfect home. I would and have already recommended Lou to all our friends and family.

Stephanie Rotondo

Listed and closed in 2 weeks investment property.

Have dealt with Marlin Int Realty in the past. Kept me well informed in all aspects of transaction. I am very happy with them.

Leonard Libersher

My wife and I hired Lou Simonetti in May of 2014 to sell our home in Cape Coral. We had interviewed three other realtors and Lou seemed to be the better of the group. After listing the property, he kept in contact almost daily, as we were looking for a fast sale. He did a video of the property and posted it on the internet on a Sunday evening, and we had a cash offer by Wednesday for more than we thought we were going to realize. Lou kept on top of the situation and we are well pleased with his expertise and dedication. We purchased our 9th home following the sale in Cape Coral, and Lou was our best Realtor of all. If we ever decide to return to Florida, we will contact Lou Simonetti.  Best realtor we’ve had in 16 transactions in five different states.

Kalman and Patricia Dolgos

Our agent Lou Simonetti played a very important part in selling our real estate.  He was extremely helpful in establishing our asking price based on his broad research and knowledge of current trends.  He protected our selling price thru great positioning and negotiations for a cash sale within a month from listing the property.

He was always available even on short notice.  He was friendly and understanding to my tenant and her needs.  He treated all involved with this transaction with the utmost respect and professionalism.
Over the last thirty years my wife and I have been thru many real estate transactions from New York to Hawaii to Florida and dealt with numerous agents.  Lou is one of the BEST!  He will definitely represent us in future transaction.

Ron York

Sold my house in less than 30 days.

 A great salesman and all around a very nice and respectable man. Handled  all the paperwork with the relocation  company for us.  Help me make the right decisions and discussed all my options with me.  Kept me from pulling my hair out.  Did all that was asked and more.   Wish I had him up here  to work with in buying new house.

Ann Angelini

I have been looking out for a house for two years and Marlin International Realty never gave up till I found the property that I liked. He is a very honest person. He also recommended a company who did the remodeling and painting of our house and I am happy with the services provided.
