“Nick is an iconic institution in the Sarasota area. As an example he has listed and sold innumerable homes on Casey Key multiple times for nearly forty years. I would match his institutional knowledge against every agent in Sarasota combined. He is blessed with a wonderful avuncular temperament and without question runs circles around his so-called competitors. There isn’t a question about the subtle nuances of Sarasota he can’t spontaneously answer. His network includes every top quality professional and if he doesn’t know something off the top of his head, he knows someone who does. He listens carefully and is uniquely patient. He has a wonderful sense of humor and instinctively always stays on task. Nick should be a model of real estate professionalism every other realtor should aspire to.”

Jon & Judy Stover (Seller)

“At our first meeting, Nick already had a complete draft for the sale of our house in his pocket. A good friend who had several positive experiences in ‘Real Estate’ business with Nick brought us together. The necessary offers and promotions for sales were created and launched on the market within a very short time. We were always impressed by his experience and his dealings with potential buyers. He solved all kinds of problems in no time. Our house, which we bought in 1998, was sold in a short time. Nick can’t be beat and we wish him all the best.”

Paul G. & Edda Reifer

“My wife and I recently closed on the purchase of a home in the Sarasota area and used Mr. Herron as our agent. And use him we did. Our search covered six months, three counties and multiple styles of homes.

I suppose that we changed our objectives several times during the process, but the truth is that we really didn’t know what we wanted at the start.

Mr. Herron was terrific. He was honest with us, told us when we were wrong and made us smile during the time we were together. We highly endorse him.

The home he eventually found for us was perfect.”

Jim & Rhonda Bodman

“Nick did a great job representing us in the sale of our condo on Casey Key. I would highly recommend him for the purchase or sale of your property.”

Susan Gorman

“Nick Herron of Re-Max/ The Herron Group has recently represented us in the sale of our luxury home in the Philippi Creek area of Sarasota. This is a relatively small segment of the market and we put our house up for sale at a particularly difficult time when the market as a whole and in particular the luxury market took a significant dip in sales volume. Consequently, it took some time to sell the house, but Nick was indefatigable, exploring every possible avenue to attract potential buyers. After a year, as the market picked up again, we eventually had three potential clients, one of whom came up with the offer we were comfortable with.

Nick’s assets include his vast and very long acquaintance with the area, its sales history and its clientele; his complete candor with his clients, which helped us immensely in first selecting a price point and subsequently adjusting it to the price that would sell; his communication skills and in particular his immediate reply to phone calls and emails, so that we always felt that he was utterly responsive to our needs and concerns; and his absolute persistence. Sooner or later, we knew, Nick would sell this house, and he did.

We’d just like to add a personal note. During the hurricane of 2018, we evacuated to Mississippi. It was a very strong system and we were worried. As the hurricane passed, we tried calling and emailing our neighbors but could not get through. So, we called Nick, who responded immediately, jumping in his SUV and making his way through debris-strewn roads to get to our house, inspect for damage (there was none), take photos, and immediately send us his reassuring news. This, though his own property had suffered some damage. We felt that was above and beyond normal, by far, and completely set our minds at rest.

As buyers’ agent, he found us our house in the first place and got it for a good price. He turned around three years later and sold it for us. We cannot speak highly enough of him. It helps that he’s a really nice guy, with a wonderful sense of humor, on top of being very able.”

Fred Wharton & Rosemary DePaolo

“Nick, we want to thank you for all the work you did to show and sell the family cottage on Casey Key. The brochure was fantastic and professional. You were as well. This was the second piece you have sold for us! Thanks again, you did a great job.”

The Mogford’s

“We met Nick Herron two years ago when we were looking for a house on Casey Key. We were and are very impressed with his outstanding thoroughness in presenting all options to us that met our criteria and for being so patient and available whenever we needed him. He is an exceptional Real Estate professional and we highly recommend him!!!”

David Alger and Bonnie Baxter

“Nick was efficient and attentive. He listened to what I wanted and as we went along adjusted provided listings accordingly. He truly showed an interest and ensured all my concerns were answered from the beginning all the way through the transaction completion. A joy to work with.”

AJ Hare

“A professional that knows waterfront property on Gulf coast in Florida. Highly experienced, knowledgeable, reasonable, and understands waterfront property and the details necessary to evaluate waterfront properties.”

Robert Phipps

“Nick is a professional in every way. He has sold many properties for us, including a condo in Venice Fl. this year. He had it listed, had a virtual tour taken, and diligently marketed it until it was sold. We would very highly recommend him.”

Joan Fox

“Nick has been very helpful in finding me a new home. He has a lot of knowledge and is willing to provide honest answers. He was able to show a lot of houses in the range that I was looking for. I bought a lot and he helped acquire the answers I needed to move forward. I highly recommend Nick Heron!”

Cindy Hart

“Over the last several years, for buying and selling our properties in the area, Nick has always been readily available, professional and courteous . Nick’s experience and extensive knowledge of regulations, bylaws and zoning conditions of the area have been very helpful when purchasing or selling. His many years in the area have provided us with a wealth of local information and have also provided us with a strong network of local resources. He has gone above and beyond what was required of an Agent. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone in search of their dream home or for listing a property.”

Marilyn Farser

“I have dealt with a number of Real Estate Professionals over my lifetime. Nick Herron is simply the best! He was proactive in finding exactly the property that would fit well for our needs. His communication skills are tremendous. He did what he said he would do. In today’s society, that is hard to find.”

Tom Collins

“We decided to buy an apartment in the Ritz Towers in Sarasota. For various reasons (none of which were under Nick’s control) it took us four offers on 4 different apartments before we finally struck a deal and closed. Throughout the process at any time night or day Nick was ultra responsive. He coordinated all aspects of the transaction in an absolutely professional and proficient manner. He has many excellent contacts in the industry and his research was extremely thorough.

Maybe most importantly he is a really personable guy and he has a very calm demeanor while maintaining the sense of urgency always necessary in real estate transactions. We recommend him without reservation”

David and Trish Porter

“My wife and I are new to Sarasota, knowing nobody, so we thank our lucky stars that we happened on Nick. He was invaluable in terms of finding us the right property, guiding our purchase through the complexities of a short sale, bargaining on our behalf – very successfully – with the bank, and, from his inexhaustible local knowledge advising us on everything from building codes to restaurants and festivals. Above all, he was the best possible communicator, responding immediately to any question we had, tracking down answers, emailing or phoning us back, and constantly keeping us in the picture. He arranged inspections and suggested insurers. On the day of closing, he was there to do a walkthrough for us, and after the sale he was still there to help with access for trades. Add to that he’s such a personable guy, and it’s hard to imagine a better realtor. I can’t recommend him too highly.”

Fred Wharton & Rosemary DePaolo

“I had a great pleasure of having Nick to help me in the sale of my home at 7800 Manasota Key. He is a true professional and always there to help you. I would highly recommend him to anyone either selling or buying a home. Thanks again Nick.”

Cathy Emerson

“We met Nick 17 years ago at an Open House on Casey Cove Drive. Over the years, he has helped us sell three homes and purchase three homes. He is dependable and extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the market and transaction details. It is always a pleasure working with him. He is a true professional and definitely our Realtor of choice.”

Mary Ann and Phil Deacon

“Nick has been our Realtor for the past 12 years. We have bought and sold many homes through him and have found him to be very knowledgeable about the real estate business. He’s very honest and personable. We recommend him highly.”

Don and Joan Fox

“Nick Herron was recommended to us by two Casey Key residents. We had visited the Key for several years and even though we though we were several years away from relocating here, Nick always gave us as much time as we wanted to explore the coast from Manasota Key to Casey Key. Having lived here himself, he knows the history of each house we toured, as well as lots of fascinating tales of the early years. His knowledge of the Key, understanding of the codes, regulations, setbacks, easements and his professional business procedures made it possible for us to move and take possession within five weeks. We recommend Nick to anyone interested in buying or selling from Sarasota to Manasota Key!”

Nancy and Art Dimsdle

“When we purchased a new home at Venetian Golf and River Club, we were so fortunate to have Nick as our agent. Although it was a newly built home, there were some very serious issues to be addressed concerning safety and construction details. Nick’s expertise in handling this situation saved us time and frustration. Nick’s rare attention to detail exceeded even our expectations. He was always a true professional and mindful of our best interests.”

Jim and Jeanette Craycraft

“Since 2000 when Nick and I met and he sold me a home on Casey Key, he has always been available whenever I needed advice or someone with whom to bounce off ideas. He has listed and sold other waterfront investment properties for me, and quickly sold my Casey Key property in an off market. I really appreciate Nick’s help, knowledge and diligence.”
