Across many industries, there is a recognition and celebration of those who go the “Extra Mile” and belong to the prestigious “Extra Miler Club”. We have had the incredible good fortune to have Karla Dorsey and her remarkable team represent us in 2 major real estate sale transactions. The most recent was the sale of a condominium unit in the Virage Tampa. We were the first unit to be sold as a resale while simultaneously multiple other units were becoming available for resale. Karla’s competence, perseverance, accommodation, resourcefulness, and incomparable professionalism always prevailed. She raised the bar for all the other participants in the process and set an impeccable standard. Regardless of the occasional challenge, her focus and professional demeanor never wavered. Karla Dorsey has a unique style in her steadfast determination to make things happen and always goes the proverbial extra mile to insure that they do! Thank you Karla Dorsey and the Karla Dorsey Team. We are eternally grateful.
I highly recommend Karla Dorsey if you are looking for a realtor! When my wife and I were planning to move to Tampa from the San Francisco Bay Area, Karla was recommended to us by a friend. My wife met with Karla several times and Karla showed her multiple properties and lots. Together they got to a short list and Karla was good enough to take us both around again to look at the options. When we decided on a lot owned by a builder, Karla was extremely helpful in coordinating meetings with the builder to plan and negotiate the purchase. This was not easy, as the meetings were remote and across multiple time zones. With Karla’s help, we were able to reach an agreement and proceeded with the purchase. Karla provided recommendations for construction loan financing and was instrumental in our finding the best option for us. Even after we closed, Karla stayed active in helping us coordinate a build from across the country. Her advice and guidance was spot on! We have been in our new house for 2 years now and could not be happier! Karla understood my desires as well as concerns about moving to Tampa. Her relationships and knowledge of the community was extremely beneficial to us before, during and after the move. Karla has been more than a realtor, she has been a true friend.
