I have worked with Ms. Barnes on several occasions from initially renting properties in the Palm Beaches to most recently purchasing a new construction home with her. Lanae knew exactly what we were looking for based on what we had communicated to her and took us to properties that were great  matches to what we were seeking. She was there all the way to close, helping us with research, reviewing all of the legal documents and eventually recommending local contractors we could work with to get our new home the way we love it. Not only will Lanae work around the clock for her clients, but she is a great person to spend time with and has a fun personality. I highly recommend her. My husband and I are very happy with our new home.
Dean and Jennifer Rappaport - Juno Beach/NPB & Palm Beach Gardens
Fantastic agent. Extremely knowledgeable and professional. Always responsive. I would highly recommend Lanae to anyone looking for top notch real estate services in the Palm Beach County area!
Mark Igidbashian - Singer Island

It is our pleasure to recommend Lanae Barnes as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home. We found Lanae to be a highly attentive agent, who made us feel that she was completely focused on us and our search for the perfect home. She is highly personable with a wonderful personality. Lanae is honest and straight forward. As overseas buyers, you place a lot of trust in your real estate agent as you are simply too far away to follow up in person. All correspondence is through phone or email. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. Lanae never let us down and I would definitely contact her again if we need to sell or buy.

We cannot praise Lanae enough and are confident you will feel the same way.

My wife and I first met Lanae Barnes four years ago when we were relocating to the Palm Beach area. Her knowledge of the area and particularly with the Two City Plaza property, made our search very efficient and pleasurable. She asked good questions, listened to our needs and we found an ideal condominium on our second visit.

A year ago, we called Lanae about a second property as an investment. We had very particular requirements and weren't sure we would be able to find anything. Within two weeks she had found a unit that exceeded our expectations and we closed on this property in less than a month with her help.

Tatiana and I would both strongly endorse and recommend Lanae for any Real Estate needs someone would have.

Harry & Tatiana Carmitchel - One & Two City Plaza

It was such a pleasure working with you when we bought our unit at Two City Plaza.

At the time, the building was less than 20% sold, the market was weak, and we, fortunately, were looking to buy something in West Palm beach, after renting in Palm Beach for the prior 6 years.

Fortunately, we met YOU when we decided to look at Two City Plaza. Your help, your professionalism and your patience in dealing with us resulted in our purchasing our dream home, despite, at the time, a very weak market, an empty building, a very limited mortgage availability and a great deal of reticence on our part.

Your work and efforts were instrumental in our decision to purchase our dream unit at Two City Plaza, which also resulted in a wonderful investment decision.

We consider you both a friend and a very competent realtor and would recommend you to anyone.

Best of luck to you and keep in touch.

Nance and Steve

Nance and Steve Karp - Two City Plaza

To whom it may concern,

My wife and I have known Lanae Barnes for three years and first met her when we were looking at and then purchased a unit at One City Plaza. We have continued to see each other on a professional level since that time.

The purchase of the unit was based upon Lanae's professional approach to selling the unit, her complete honesty and accurate information she provided gave us a tremendous sense of confidence. Any questions were quickly answered. At no time during the process did Lanae compromise her values or pressure us in any way. We have worked with a number of realtors over the years and (for the most part) they should all take a page out of Lanae's book.

We wish Lanae continued success and will use her services in the future regardless of which realty company she may be affiliated with.

Sincerely,


Sydney Smidt

Lanae Barnes was of great help when we bought a one bedroom apartment in Two City Plaza in 2011. We are from Germany and due to Lanae's professional background and her communicative skills our investment became a very positive experience. She was very helpful in finding us a reliable renter. Lanae is a very motivated saleswoman and always available. She never lost touch with us without pressing us into any deal. We are interested in buying another apartment in West Palm Beach, and we will certainly do it with her as our realtor.

I purchased two condos from Lanae Barnes in WPB in 2013. She expertly advised me from offer to close, bringing up ideas that I had not thought of to make the purchase not only smooth but to my benefit. She had the insight and experience to make the purchase flawless. Many thanks to you Lanae!

Hi Lanae,

We are doing well and enjoying Two city as often as we can get down there, which isn't as often as we would like just yet, but someday!

We appreciated your professional assistance in helping us locate and buy what turned out to be the right unit for us at Two City. Your knowledge of both One & Two City buildings, their amenities and the surrounding area was of great benefit and integral in our selection of Two City as the second home of choice for us. We thank you for your support throughout the entire process.

Sincerely,

My experience with using Lanae as my broker has been phenomenal. She is very professional and goes out of her way to answer questions and help finding the right objects. She is very knowledgeable and always arriving on time and replying to questions and concerns very quickly.

She helped me with my purchase in two city plaza and then 2 additional properties in West Palm Beach. I am very satisfied. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and other potential clients.

Best Regards

I've known Ms. Lanae Barnes for over seven years and we worked together for two of those years. Lanae worked with me as a Sales Consultant on multiple Ocean Front Properties in South Florida. Her performance was stellar and I received nothing but high marks from the customers she represented. Not only did she exceed all sales goals but was able to build solid relationships that still exist today. In addition, I think that it's important to mention that during the time we worked together was the most difficult time in the real estate industry. It took a lot of persistence and diligence to complete any real estate transactions during this period. Ms. Barnes was always professional and her in depth knowledge of Florida Real Estate Law benefited her clients. Her clients knew that Ms. Barnes was the right person at the right time to represent them in their real estate transactions.

Steve Griggs - Evergrene, Resort at Singer Island, One Singer Island

I know you bring with you the same level of service and professionalism you demonstrated when I bought my unit at Two City Plaza. I love my condo and the whole purchase process which you orchestrated made the purchase a wonderful experience.

I would recommend you to anyone who is considering home or condo purchase in the South Florida area.

Warm regards,

On working with Lanae Barnes who sold me my current residence: It is a breeze and a pleasure to convey the delightful experience afforded me and my betters (CEOz mom & pop, particularly) by the informed and organized, distinctly professional and polished approach Lanae Barnes brings to the property acquisition process.

I suspect it doesn't get any better than a gracious and elegant, assured and accommodating agent who from the get go feels like an ally who's got mastery of the materials and expertise relevant to the specific home and property market of interest, etc.; & as such, Lanae consistently provided only the most relevant information and maintained a convivial enthusiasm for what fast came to feel like our collective endeavor. In the end, I'm thus furnished with singularly well-suited digs that I truly, um, dig!

Thank you, Lanae, for all that you did on my behalf.

I trust that anywhere you go, you'll rightly be welcomed as the strategically skilled, dedicated, highly valuable, delightfully charming specimen of health and well-being and professionalism that you truly, wonderfully are.

All the Best!

Ms. Barnes:

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your efforts that facilitated our last two recent real estate transactions. You are the epitome of above and beyond, the amount of personal time you invested (time that certainly you weren't required to, spend but did) made each transaction very easy and simple for me. Mind you, one of these deals was anything but simple.

I've dealt with many real estate agents, on a multitude of projects, some very large, I can tell you pure and simple none of them could shine your shoes. Not one email nor one phone went unanswered. Your follow through was second to none.

It is so refreshing to work with someone who takes such pride in finding win/win solutions for all. This is a trait that is seldom found in business today. Should you ever need a recommendation or testimonial please don't hesitate to contact me.

It would be my pleasure.

All the best,

"Bright as hell...." A strong negotiator.... Tenacious...bulldog-like... A bit obsessed with the details...are all words that I use to describe the woman who was responsible for one of the best real estate transactions I've engaged in.

As a buyer's representative, Lanae watched out for the "right" property, having taken the time to understand my wants, needs, and desires. When the time was right to strike, I got the word and we developed a strategy to limit negotiations with the seller. She saved me several thousands of dollars in acquisition cost through her aggressive representation of me. Post sale, she followed up regularly and helped me find the tradesmen whom I needed to maximize value. Now the real question is, "hold" or "fold." Lanae has continued to provide advice and while she might profit from a quick flip, her advice is to let the investment mature a bit. Given Miami comparable pricing, and my confidence in Lanae, I'm holding...for the moment.

Lanae is connected, she's in touch with her markets and she's got those attributes so challenging to find these days: brains and brawn.... I am a client "for life."

Thank you, Lanae, for the quality of your work and for your commitment to exceptional professionalism!

Curtis Lyman - Lake Harbour Towers South

Having lived in the West Palm Beach area over 12 years ago, I knew that I needed a realtor to bring me up to speed. When inquiring to a friend if they could recommend a realtor with integrity, Lanae's name came up above all others. Over a course of 3 days she gave me access to a wide range of possibilities. Unbeknownst to her, I gave myself the deadline of finding the ideal place within the week that I was visiting. Through Lanae, what I found was not only the perfect living space, but one that will rise in tremendous value and quality over the next decade. Still living in Los Angeles, she kept me abreast of the negotiations. Communication was to the point, accurately rendered and precise. As a result, a tremendous deal was made with an ally that had my back at all times.

Because of Lanae's professional expertise and personal generosity of spirit, I am happily returning home (South Florida) to a new home thanks to her.

My boyfriend and I recently closed on a great condo thanks to our Realtor, Lanae Barnes. We stumbled upon an open house she was having, fell in love with the unit and quickly made an offer. With her expertise we were able to purchase the unit for a fair price and she was kind enough to put a rush on the closing for us. I found Lanae to be "on point" with everything, making the process extremely easy for all involved. Whether you're buying or selling, I would highly recommend her services.

Dayle Muller - Lake Harbour Towers South

Well we couldn't be happier with Lanae Barns. We interviewed a few realtors and she really stood out. Very professional and really sold us on how she would go about selling my mom's condo. It was a very difficult time and she seemed to sense this and made it as easy as possible for us. She did everything she said she would do to sell the condo, from advertising it well, to taking some really good pictures of the place and views. She guided us through the pricing process and when we got an offer she helped us "realistically" put a price on it. She did a great job and she definitely is an asset to you and your business. We are very happy with the whole process.

Thank you,

I am writing this letter to give you my thoughts on Lanae Barnes. We used Lanae to sell our condo at Two City Plaza. After 6 months with another agent and no offers, I was feeling frustrated and at the end of my rope.

My husband and I met with Lanae along with several other agents. Upon meeting her, we felt that she was easy to talk to and a wealth of knowledge. She answered every question as it related to real-estate and was honest, professional and never pushy. After such a great first impression we decided to retain her as our listing agent and we are very happy that we did. We live in Canada so the fact that Lanae was on top of everything made us feel totally comfortable with us not being around all of the time. We were informed every step of the way and I never felt worried or anxious. I knew I left things in the best hands.

She sold our unit within 4 weeks of listing it! Quite a feat after the unit sat for 6 long months.

Her role did not end there. She stayed involved right through the closing until the check was in my hand. Lanae far exceeded my expectations in every aspect of the experience. I will absolutely use Lanae again on any property I buy or sell in the future.

I feel that not only have I gained the friendship of an efficient, professional realtor but also that of a wonderful, honest and delightful person!

Sincerely yours,



Sandra Amerato

Dear Lanae,

I am very happy to have closed on the sale of my West Palm Beach condo, and I want you to know how very much I appreciate your guidance and efforts.

You made all our communications easy, by responding clearly and promptly. You were always available by phone, email, or to meet personally on-site. When my ex-wife asked you questions, some of which I thought bordered on burdensome, you responded to her with grace, knowledge, and dignity so that she came to accept your advice and price the unit properly. We found a way to deal with all the obstacles, from neighboring construction to missing permits to unforeseen repairs, with helpful guidance from you at every turn. And you did it all with good humor and elegance, even when others might have felt insulted.

You were absolutely right in your market analysis. Your dealings with the other realtor showed complete cooperation and respect. I knew I could trust you to attend to details and handle difficult personalities.

I would strongly recommend you to anyone wishing to buy or sell real estate around West Palm Beach. Thanks for everything!

Bob

Robert Davidson - Two City Plaza
