"We recently retained the services of David Burke and Team Paradise to market our home in Autumn Woods. Their knowledge of the market and grasp of the most effective marketing technics proved invaluable in bringing about the sale of our home within a time frame and at a price consistent with our expectations. We were very impressed with the high level of professionalism exhibited by Team Paradise throughout the marketing and closing process. We highly recommend David and the entire team. It has been non-stop since we closed on our home in Scottsdale last Monday. Lucy and I want you to know how much we appreciate all you did in helping us sell our home in Naples. Your advice was always sound and very helpful. We are both very pleased with the outcome and feel the results would not have been nearly as good if you had not been leading the process. We also very much appreciate your generosity in adjusting the referral fee to help make the numbers work. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you. When you visit Scottsdale let us know your schedule and if we are in town we would love to take you to dinner. Thanks again for everything.” Hank & Lucy Stillwell - Wheaton, IL (4/13)

On the day of my departure from a recent trip he met me at the condo with only an hours’ notice, I looked at it on the way to the airport. Once I returned home I decided to make an offer and Greg took care of everything to do with it.(Love the site he uses called Docusign) so everything was done over email. Along with meeting the inspectors and my friends that wanted to see the unit before I closed so that they could advise me of the things I overlooked on my only visit. I am happy with my purchase and Gregs friendly and professional way of helping me thru the process. I look forward to owning another place in Paradise." Sue & Lester Streeter – Concord, MI (3/13)

There was never a question of where we were in the process and all the team members were informed and helpful.

“We were looking for a house in a gated community in Naples in the 300k-400k range. After looking at dozens of houses we came upon Team Paradise's listing in Autumn Woods. As a realtor myself working for a different
broker than David Burke and Greg Gorman I can tell you that this was the easiest transaction I've ever made in real estate. The whole team at Team Paradise was accommodating every single step of the way. From our first
offer to the last signature at the closing table they were able to work with us and get us in our new house in under 30 days. What a professional outfit they have at Team Paradise, highly, very highly recommended.” Realtor & Buyer Robert Long (6/12)
“Team Paradise was very helpful in selling my residence. I felt they were very experienced in the real estate market and knew exactly how to handle the listing and what would make the property sale.

“I can't say enough about David, really, From the start last August he has just been the most helpful, thoughtful person. Every question I had, anything that needed get done (roof steam cleaned, shrubbery problems, air conditioner, etc..) he did cheerfully. Packing up the remaining contents so I didn't have to fly down, was the biggest help!! My day is quite full working and seeing to the folks! If I had to go to Naples even for a few days it would be difficult. He made a sad/difficult situation so much easier. I would recommend him and Team Paradise very highly. Alex was excellent in assisting David and keeping me in touch with what was going on, by e-mail and phone. Thank you” Erin Reardon – Long Island, NY (6/12)
"My wife and I recently listed and sold our condo in Naples with Team Paradise at J. R. Wood Realtors. We cannot say enough about how impressed we were with the excellent advice and service we received from Team Paradise. David Burke worked with us from the start to get the property ready for sale. His advice and local contacts were invaluable. Once the property was listed the whole team was at our disposal. We always felt that they cared about us as individuals and they were quick to answer any questions we had in regard to the listing. We noticed the little personal touches from the team such as repositioning a chair or opening the blinds to help put our best foot forward. If you are thinking of listing or buyer property in Naples we highly recommend Team Paradise." Don and Pat Whelpley - Naperville, Illinois (6/12)

while keeping our best interests in mind.” Bob & Jill Edelstein - Edina, MN (4/12)
“David and his team were amazing. Professional, calm, patient and always pleasant! David orchestrated a deal on a short sale enabling us to acquire the house of our dreams. David is meticulous, thorough, and made
sure nothing fell through the cracks. His experience and knowledge of what was going on in the market in our specific area is, we believe, what really got us the home. We do not freely give out recommendations mainly because we unfortunately have such few fantastic experiences with regards to service to warrant such, but we would enthusiastically recommend David and his team!” Gilbert & Susie Maulsby – Naples, FL (3/12)
"Greg and his team were there for me; from putting up the 'for sale' sign to the final closing with the legal group. His good advice also helped me find just the right property to move into and his negotiating skills saved me a good bit of $$$$$$ on my final new home purchase… I am recommending him to all my friends without reservation. I gained a
great realtor and new good friend in this process. " Peggy Bradley – Naples, FL (3/12)
“Working with Greg, David and Alex has been a pleasure throughout the purchase process. Everything was timely, complete and well documented which is essential in the current Real Estate and lending environment. I have always been under the impression that their best efforts were completely engaged and I am looking forward to the sale of my present home so I will then have the experience as both a buyer and seller. Being a lender in the Naples area for the last 26 years I have plenty of contacts in the Real Estate business but have been impressed with the professionalism of this group.” Marty Lawton – Naples, FL (3/12)
"Definitely profesonal, hard workers, and genuinely concerned about their clients. Y'all provided good, sound advice and with this advice my house sold in months while other houses in Kings Lake have been on the market for years and remain unsold." John Pascucci - Naples, FL (10/11)
"Despite marketing blitzes and positioning to the contrary, Realtors largely offer the same service. The difference is people. The quality and knowledge and support offered by the team at Team Paradise is superb. From searching for the right apartment, explanations of the current state of the market, logic in helping choose the best of our options in terms of livability as well as potential future resale, recommendations around local lawyers and inspection firms, right the way thru to all aspects of the closing, we can’t say enough good things about our experience. We worked with David Burke and Alex Kincaid and we had a stellar experience. Highly recommend."
Anthony & Serena Plesner - New York, New York (10/11)

Team Paradise is the one if you want an informative and caring realtor. They sell you a HOME and a
DREAM!!!!!!" Nichol Conklin - Bonita Springs, FL (9/11)
"What a pleasure to work with Team Paradise! The selling of our mother's home in Autumn Woods was a bit complicated because two of her three daughters live out-of-state, but Greg and Alex kept all of us fully informed of the details of the sale process through phone calls and emails. Their professional marketing techniques and realistic advice on pricing led to an offer to purchase in 9 days and a closing in less than 60 days. We could not be happier with our experience. Many thanks, Greg and our best to David, Alex and Mary Kay!" Karin Fowler - Grand Haven, MI ( 7/11)
"My wife and I have were originally referred to David and Greg of Team Paradise by another realtor who was having trouble handling a short sale purchase that we were interested in. David and Greg were able to handle this complicated transaction with relative ease. They had a definite strategy to take control of the process and that strategy worked exactly as planned. I have purchased two additional investment properties through them. These two transactions also were breeze thanks to their diligent efforts. All along, David and Greg were on top of the situation and always had thoughtful advice for my wife and I. We have since referred them to friends who have had
great success as well. I can't recommend Team Paradise highly enough and I feel very fortunate to have been able to work with them for the past several years." Eric &Theresa Vensel - Naples, FL ( 7/11)

"You have been a pleasure to deal with and I will happily and confidently recommend you to anyone I can in Naples. I am sure we'll still be in touch." Tripp Moore - Greenwich, CT (7/11)
"We were looking for realtor who knew a lot about short sales and Greg Gorman was referred to us. During our first phone conversation, Greg was very knowledgable and we had a feeling that he'd work hard to sell our
house and keep us informed throughout the process. And boy, did it end up being a stressful process! Luckily, Greg knew exactly what to do every step of the way and even ended up saving the sale when it was about to fall through! Greg Gorman is a true real estate professional and we highly recommend him to anyone!"
Erik and Emily Larsen - Wake Forest, NC (6/11)
"I wish all my friends could have worked with David cause the experiences I had with David changed the way Iooked at realtors. Even though there are other good ones out there I would take David hands down no matter what states I live in. I promise you will not find a better person!!!"
Mark Stockland - Bonita Springs, FL (6/11)
"David Burke epitomizes the word “professional” in the real estate world. I was spared many of the painful details as David’s team moved quickly and effectively with my transaction. I would have no problem recommending David for any real estate transactions in the future!"
Bruce Klinger - Sylvania, OH (5/11)
"I started out as a potential renter and ended up being a very happy home owner. Thanks to David Burke and Team Paradise I was able to find a home in the area I wanted and at the price I could afford. David went out of his way to make sure everything went smoothly and was expertly taken care of from the first viewing of my new home until now even after I closed and gotten the keys. I think the best thing about my experience was even when I thought I was a potential renter David still took the time to send me listings I might be interested in and then show them to me. I probably wouldn’t be a home owner right now if it wasn’t for Team Paradise. Thank you!"
Andrea Favalon - Estero, FL (5/11)
"Greg and David at Team Paradise are very capable and responsive realtors. We were referred to them by a friend from Minnesota and we have been VERY pleased with the service."

hands. Thanks for constantly keeping us informed and staying on top of everything in order to get the short sale approved. We hope to visit Naples soon and thank you in person. Sincerely, Erik and Emily"
Erik & Emily - Larsen, Wake Forest, NC (6/11)
“"We have never been happier than we were to work with David & Greg. They are the most professional team I have met here in Florida and would recommend their services to anyone buying or selling a home or any real estate. Our sale and purchase was taken care of by them and I would never, ever work with anyone but David or Greg! They are the best!
Cheryl Heuler – Naples FL (4/11)
“We decided to sell our condo at Bridgewater Bay as we hardly used it. We listed it 2 years ago with another realtor that claimed to be the “expert” at Bridgewater. We had limited showings, poor feedback, and no offers for over 1 year. Upon hiring Team Paradise we were greatly impressed with the speed and marketing of the unit’s relisting. We had numerous showings and great feedback. When the sale offer came in, we took their advice and countered with the correct but not greedy price. The whole process was tremendous. Team Paradise is the A-Team!”
Chip & Sherrie Travis - Hinsdale IL (4/11)
“We were pleased to have the opportunity to work with Greg Gorman and David Burke! They came highly recommended to us and we were not disappointed. We appreciated their honesty, responsiveness to our concerns/questions, and the wealth of professional service they gave us throughout our sale. There is no question that they would be our first choice when looking for a realtor.
Pat & Randy Peterson - Clear Lake, WI (3/11)
“We are very pleased with the professional services we have received from Team Paradise. They have done an excellent job of posting professional pictures of our home, writing an accurate description of our property and distributing the material on the Internet, post cards and newspaper. We had a successful open house and over a dozen showings which resulted in a contract within five weeks after the listing. Thank you Team Paradise.”
Bob & June Hubbard - Naples, FL (3/11)
“My wife and I started with another realtor as we tried to sell our home. We then moved our listing to Greg and David. Even in this difficult market, they found a buyer for us, and we have successfully closed.”
Robert & Carole Leher - Naples, FL (2/11)
“Greg, It is a pleasure doing business with you. You should be teaching folks how to sell real estate. It would be well worth their while to emulate and implement your skills. Thank you for your business.”
Wayne Dean, JD - Radon Mitigation Specialist, Naples, FL (2/11)
“It was a pleasure to work with Greg Gorman not only on the purchase of my new home, but in selling my previous residence. In both cases, Greg was responsive, professional and looking out for my best interests. Greg did a great job marketing my house and it sold quickly at a fair price. I recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home from someone they can trust. “
Nancy McLaughlin - Naples, FL (11/10)
“We called Greg & David for an interview and knew immediately they would sell our home. Once we listed, we asked around about them and their names were mentioned by 4 of our friends and people we work with! We were so satisfied with their quick sale. We felt so comfortable, we trusted them and their advise."
David & Lee Walsh – Naples & Kensington, MD (6/10)

Valerie LoBiano & Helen Zimmerman, Naples (2/10)
“We first met Greg Gorman over a year ago when we began our search for a new home in Naples. We met by chance after seeing one of his properties listed on realtor.com. Not having an agent of our own, we called Greg and requested an appointment to view his property. We were extremely impressed with Greg’s professionalism and knowledge of the Naples real estate market. We are so appreciative of all the hours and continued dedication that Greg and his team put into helping us find our dream home. We look forward to creating many new memories, and know that in Greg, not only have we found a great Realtor who we will continue to refer to others, but also a wonderful friend.”
Billy & Erika Edwards (10-09)
“Thank you Greg & David for your capable and professional assistance managing the sale of our home in Pine Ridge. Never during this difficult financial period did we imagine the process could be concluded with so little stress in less than six months. We felt totally at ease with you contacting the buyers, negotiating with the banks and obtaining legal counsel to finalize the contracts. It was pleasant to always find you in good humor when you frequently called to update progress or attend the many details of the sale.”
Dr. & Mrs. Gary Gallo (10-09)
“After looking for houses for almost 3 years, we were fortunate to be referred to David & Greg. We had attempted to purchase 2 different properties prior to working with the Team, but both deals had fallen through. David and Greg negotiated this housing transaction with experience, thoughtfulness, and hard work. We firmly believe it is due to their efforts that we were successful in obtaining the house. Without their help, it would have been just another deal that had fallen through for us.”
Drs. Eric & Theresa Vensel (10/09)
“David & Greg are true real estate professionals! Team Paradise has a PULSE on the Naples housing market. David & Greg have been available 24/7 to provide market analysis and potential buyers. They had a focus on selling our home and knew the housing activity in advance of any MLS postings. The Team worked with the buyers to finalize a price we were happy with.”
Joe & Christine Biscardi (9-09)
Dave and Greg, we want to thank you for all the time & effort you put into finding us our Naples vacation home. You listened to what we were hoping to find and found us exactly what we were looking for! We will enjoy our place for many years to come....thank you for making it happen. It was a pleasure working with you. You really went above & beyond for us & we want you to know it didn’t go unnoticed & we truly appreciate it. Thanks again for everything!
Lynn and Dave Feenan(7-09)
"David Burke & Team acted as my real estate agent in the purchase of a Gulf front condominium in the Park Shores area of Naples, FL. From beginning to end, the process took more than a year, and involved three bids, including one transaction in mid-September 2008 in which, in view of the precipitous stock market decline at that time, I elected to exercise my right to rescind. I felt at the time that other agents, having devoted so much time and effort to selecting and then showing me properties, would lose interest, but David persevered and continued to bring appropriate opportunities to my attention. David was very attentive to my budgetary limitations, as well as to what he had come to understand were my requirements in terms of location, size and views. Because I had limited time in several short trips to Naples, it was very helpful that I consumed only minimal time looking at properties in which I had no interest. It was also very evident that David enjoyed very good relationships with the brokers and agents representing prospective sellers, and he was quite successful in extracting from them information that was useful to me in the bidding process. I would recommend David without equivocation, and would unquestionably utilize his services in connection with any future real estate transactions in which I might engage in the Naples area."
James P. Melican, Greenwich, CT
