Dear Mr. Norville,
Recently I received a letter from you requesting feedback
on my experience with selling my mother's house at 4519 Silverberry Court in Jacksonville. I am pleased to write this letter
in response to your request.
As you know, Linda Shepherd was the agent who worked with us in the process
of selling the home. If I had to choice of any realty agent in Jacksonville, I don't think I could have chosen a better person
than Linda. You should know the Linda Shepherd represents your company extremely well. In our situation, we had two estates
involved in the ownership of the home. That in itself makes the realtor's job more difficult. Not once did Linda display
any frustration in the dealing with our complicated situation. Just the opposite… Linda was always very professional,
hardworking, easy to contact, and very aggressive in marketing our home. In fact, she did whatever was necessary on any given
day to move us forward in finding a buyer for our property.
In my case, I am extremely grateful to have worked
with Linda Shepherd because I felt at somewhat of a disadvantage living in Texas while trying to finalize my mother's estate
through the sales of a property in Florida. Linda set my mind at ease as we worked through the process right up to the closing
of the house. In my opinion you are very fortunate to have Linda Shepherd on your team. She is quite an asset!
Randy and Brenda Brown are the consummate professionals. They continuously keep
you apprised with status updates, are prompt with returning calls and answering questions, and continuously work with you
until the process is complete. Their positive attitude and personable nature make it a pleasure to do business.

I'm not familiar with the formalities of composing a formal thank you letter.
I received the thank you letter from you while I was trying to figure out how this is done! Just another example of how
on top of things Norville Realty has been throughout the process of selling my parent's home at 4233 Palmer Ave. I would
like to express a sincere thank you to Scott Fortenberry, Lee Norville, and anyone else at Norville Realty, Inc. whose hard
work made this a simple and pleasant experience for Linda and me. I look forward to recommending you to anyone that I come
across needing a Realtor.
We have personally known Brenda and Randy for over 20 years. They consistently
gave us sound advice based upon their past experience, which allowed us to make the best decisions for us. We wholeheartedly
recommend them as trustworthy and knowledgeable Realtors! They were great negotiators as well, and handled the sale with integrity
and honor. Brenda and Randy were very knowledgeable of the market and the competitive landscape. They provided valuable insight
as we negotiated our terms and demonstrated the highest level of professionalism all the way to closing. I would not hesitate
to ask Brenda and Randy to assist us next time we make a sale or purchase.

I received your letter dated January 7, 2013
in reference to the sale of 13741 Wm. Davis Pky, Jacksonville (Cypress Village). I love working with hardworking, efficient,
competent people, if they are also nice it's a bonus - Linda Shepherd fits the bill. Because of the economy it took two and
a half years to sell my Mom's house but I never lost confidence and knew Linda was doing her very best in a difficult situation.
I would highly recommend Linda and I don't say that lightly.
Lee, sending the followup letter
was a class act.

we approach closing on the sale of my mother's house, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all you have done to
make this possible. I have sold a number of homes through the years and have always worked due diligence to find the best
realtors. I know dedicated, professional and effective realty service when I see it and that is what you are. I would like
to provide this letter of recommendation for you to use as you see fit.
The service you and Pamela, with
Designs Refined, provided surpasses any I have seen. When you said you do more than 'put a sign in the yard' you weren't kidding.
I asked a lot of you and you always stepped up. Since I was selling from out of town, your willingness to oversee staging,
clean-up, maintenance in addition to advertising, showing the property, caravans, knowledgeable selling strategy made all
the difference. The fact that staging was part of the package was key in my selecting you and it did not disappoint. The rooms
were attractive, appeared larger and more updated. When you cleaned out the garage, aka 60 year hazardous materials warehouse,
with your own two hands I couldn't believe it. Your marketing advice was savvy and successful. And then after the contract
was in place, your commitment continued. When I didn't know how to get the house emptied in time from afar, you stepped in
I am grateful for all the extra effort you put in and recommend you highly. Thanks for making a
difficult situation not only successful but as easy as it could be.
In a difficult market, the experience of the Lee Norville and the folks
at Norville Realty made the difference. They navigated us through unfamiliar and tumultuous times in trying to sell an upper
mid-range house in Ortega Forest. They knew when to adjust the price but kept it within our reasonable sale price range and
got it closed when it seemed nothing else was moving. Any broker will do in a hot market; but in this market we could not
have been more pleased by the insight, professionalism, hard work, and responsiveness of Norville Realty (not to mention the

When we decided to sell our home, we wanted a Realtor who was friendly, enthusiastic about her job,
knew her business, would point out the many great features of our home and would sell our home as quickly as possible. We
found that and so much more in Norville Realty's Laura McLaughlin. She made some wonderful suggestions for getting our home
ready, developed a creative selling plan and gave us excellent feed-back after showing the house, and guided us through the
selling process "all the way to the bank". Our home sold in 3 weeks which is most unusual in todays market! She
did it with class and efficiency. We are forever greatful for her guidance and help!
home was on the market for 6 month prior to contacting Laura and was shown to over 12 "lookers". It wasn't until
we switched to Norville that wonderful things happened.

In January 2006, after moving from Mississippi, Mr. David Taylor was our Real Estate agent.
At that time he was employed by Norville Realty, Inc. Mr Taylor was extremely professional and he always went beyond
his way of meeting the customer needs.
In addition to Mr Taylor's professional and reliable service,
he is a very pleasant person and is fun to work with. Therefore, I would highly recommend him either for selling or
buying a home.

Dear Winfield Duss
for handling the sale and closing of my house. After living there for 57 years, I was afraid it would be a long and
painful experience, especially in the current market, but you handled everything in a calm and professional manner, much to
If I ever have another house to sell, I'd want you and Norville to handle it.
With much appreciation,
Toy Scott is the agent you want when you are serious about selling or buying property. She has consistently been the
ingredient that has brought my sales/purchases to fruition when all looked lost. She has worked with me on at least 6 transactions
that I can recall over the last decade, and each time I have ben impressed with her ability to find the right people to do
just the right work to tweak a deal into reality, whether it is termite report issues, financing, inspections, arranging to
work around less than cooperative tenants, and sometimes less than cooperative buyers/sellers.
has a southern belle's sociability coupled with a New-England sensibility when it comes to finding solutions to challenges
standing between a buyer and seller. One can always count on her yeoman work ethic and pristine attention to detail ensure
that all the myriad details that stand between the general agreement and actually exchanging money and deeds are completed
I have always been able to count on her to give me a realistic evaluation of the market,
both when buying and selling. With realistic information in hand I have always been able to move my properties in a timely
fashion, when selling, and to make realistic offers when buying. With her deep asset of contacts in the industry, her formidable
understanding of the markey, and her boundless southern charm, she is a delight to work with. When one knows that the ship
is in able hands, one is able to sit back and enjoy the ride...
Dear Linda Shepherd,
your Broker that we nominate you for the award of Realtor of the Years for "Sticktuitiveness" !!
thank you for your professionalism, patience and friendship.

Yesterday I received the closing
papers and check for the sale of our house in Cypress Village in Jacksonville. From the time our agent, Linda Shepherd,
put up the For Sale sign to now, it only took about a month to finalize the whole transaction.
am writing to commend her. She is thoroughly professional - knowledgeable, skillful, thoughtful and sensitive.
You are fortunate to have her on your staff.
