Shirley Rigo, PA 727-894-RIGO (7446)
Laura Martin Fedich “Shirley Rigo, plain and simple, is an outstanding realtor. In fact she is the best I’ve worked with. Living in Seattle and selling a home on Florida is a difficult and stressful thing to do. In addition, my home needed some repairs and some refreshing prior to putting it on the market. After an inspection of the home Shirley made recommendations regarding what needed to be done and then she hired and supervised all of the contractors. She made sure to negotiate fair prices and followed through to insure the work was done in a timely and satisfactory manner. When my home went under contract she continued to work to be sure everything closed, tending to any details that arose. Shirley Rigo is a hard working advocate for her clients. She’s also trustworthy and knows the real estate market inside and out. She keeps her clients informed at every step. When needed she’ll reach out with reassurance and good counsel. I’m so glad I hired Shirley!”
I just wanted to take the time to say thank you. You all have been so kind and helpful. I will miss Charles Court very much, but it is time to move forward. Living in Charles Court for the last year and a half has been a lovely experience. I personally would love to thank Caroline for showing me Charles Court and going above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly. Also, Tara, you have been a godsend when it comes to fixing things in a timely manner! Again thank you so much for this delightful experience. I hope in the future if I need any help finding a place that I can rely on your wonderful team.
t must be a year or more that we have worked together on complicated and sometimes tough problems. You have been there for Mary and me when we’ve needed your professional help. You’ve been a teacher – in telling us what we’ve needed to do on our computer. You’ve also been patient, helping me to tackle an accounting system that is unique. You get the credit for all that we’ve learned from you. So give yourself a well deserved pat on the back!!

I would like to express appreciation for the quality of work completed by Ted in repairing and painting the living room walls and the other miscellaneous items in the condo. He kept in constant communication with me and followed through with each commitment he made … just wish to pass on positive words.
This was a short sale that lasted almost 10 months. Our agent, Shirley Rigo, never gave up and went beyond the call of duty with her patience. She even gave up a portion of her commission to help the deal go through. This is why we keep coming back to her for assistance in buying and selling properties over the last 20 plus years.

Thank you so much for all your help!! So happy to hear we already have another tenant in place! As I have said before, I am a realtor here in Central Florida and I have worked with many property management companies – however – you are the best by far! You always keep us notified, you handle problems, and we can count on you to take good care of our unit.
Thank you so much for all you do,
Shirley handled both the buy and sell sides of our move within St. Pete. She was very patient with us (over the course of a couple of years!), understanding that we initially just had the itch to buy something, but needed to see what was out there to help us shape our "Must Have" list. In the end, she showed us the perfect house and by the next day had us under contract. Then she moved quickly to get our home on the market so that we would not get stuck with 2 mortgage payments for very long. We loved it that she not only had photos taken, but also put up an impressive video online. After the inspection it was pointed out that our front door did not have the appropriate hardware for the hurricane shutter (shame on the original builders!!). Shirley called one of her "Rolodex" of contractors and got the job handled in record time, keeping us on track for our closing. In the end we carried both houses for less than 2 weeks!
