Fran and I want to express our most sincere gratitude for helping us sell our son’s home. As you may have inferred, the sale of this property was laced with much anxiety and trepidation. From the onset of the process, we found your company to be most professional and efficient. We interviewed several realtors and in the process we learned that real estate sales is an extremely competitive field. What made Paul different was that he never made us feel rushed or pressured. He had no “sales pitch;” he treated us, and made us feel, like we were members of his family. Paul was always punctual and the folks we dealt with through his recommendation (e.g. air conditioning specialists, handymen, roofers) were upstanding and honest. Paul maintained his demeanor throughout the entire selling process, from the signing of the sales agreement through the signing of the closing documents (and beyond, in our particular case). He never wavered in his commitment to us and his assistance in helping us make decisions along the way proved to be invaluable. He kept us apprised of every step in the process and returned our calls and emails expeditiously. He maintained his gentle approach even during times when we may have been less than agreeable. Overall, the most outstanding of Paul’s qualities was his genuine honesty, generosity and his infinite level of patience. This is not the first house we’ve sold in our lives and we have dealt with multiple realtors. Paul is the first not to show greater interest in his own welfare than ours. Not to forget you, Ana, and although we never had direct dealings with you, working behind the scenes was no less important than being on the front line with clients. The communications we received were always punctual and we never felt that we were dealing with anyone less than competent in every way. So, thank you both for making this process go as smoothly as humanly possible. We will always remain friends, if not family.

I had contacted varies companies for recommendations for a realtor in the Fort Myers area, Paul Fonseca responded and I could not have made a better choice. Paul listened to what I was looking for and the small time frame I had to look and purchase a house. Paul stayed in contact and when the day came to look for houses he had it all mapped out and we changed some things up but he was always on point. Paul knows the area makes great suggestions and is just fantastic to work with. I highly recommend Paul to anyone who is buying or selling a house in the Fort Myers area. Sincerely,
Christiaan D. Evans, MS, RRT
"Working with Paul & Ana and their team was a great experience. They took the stress out of the home buying process, which allowed us to focus on the other aspects of our relocation from out of state. We would highly recommend The Fonseca Group to anyone looking to relocate to the area.”

Susie was nothing short of fabulous to work with!!! Always professional and very knowledgeable of the market. She sold my home in only one week and the entire process went quite smoothly. She is a wonderful person to work with not to mention one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Thank you Susie!!!
Our condominium was on the market by another realtor for a long time and there was no results what so ever. Only after Paul Fonseca took over did we notice immediate results. His genuine interest, unparalleled knowledge and professionalism was instrumental in this quick sale and even though there were multiple units on the market at the same time, Paul was able to complete the sale for the asking price. With his expertise the closing process was a breeze - we did not even have to be present for it.

Working with Paul was wonderful! He was very professional and extremely patient with us during the whole process...went above and beyond to make us happy. Love our new home!!
After having our house for sale for months with another real estate agency with no results we contacted Paul & Ana Fonseca with The Fonseca Group to get our house sold. This husband and wife team brought professionalism and their marketing skills made all the difference. They know the market very well and were very familiar with our community. Their professional photos and marketing materials were the highest quality. They got our house sold in 18 days. We will highly recommend Paul & Ana Fonseca with The Fonseca Group to all of our friends and family. Thank you for a job well done!
"Even though I was on a tight budget, Julie took me seriously and gave me great service. I am very thankful that she was my realtor!"
"My husband and I have been looking for 'the right home' for a while. We connected with Julie and from the beginning it was a perfect fit!! She was patient, understanding, knowledgeable, and professional. I had some pretty crazy requests about homes in the process and every time Julie made it happen. I have been telling anyone who will listen how incredibly great she is. I strongly recommend you go with Julie if you are looking for a home or property. She will make life easier and stress free during this process!!"
"Julie is Awesome. My husband and I initially thought we would purchase a condo, but were unsure. Julie was so flexible in presenting listings for both single family homes and condos. We initially had an offer that fell through, but continued to work with her until she helped us find our perfect home. She is a joy to work with, responded in due time to our questions, and if she didn't have an answer, would make sure to find one for us. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. Her caring input was helpful in our decision to choose the house we now call home and love. Thank you so much Julie for your patience and all your help."
"Julie is an awesome realtor. She did an excellent job for me and I will continue to use her for my future real estate needs in the SW Florida area!"
"Susie far exceeded our expectations during our recent trip to Fort Myers in search of a condominium. She spent hours taking us around to every unit we wanted to see. She is extremely professional as well as very friendly. We would highly recommend her to anyone interested in purchasing real estate. "
Victoria & Tom C.
"Susie sold our townhome in Ft Myers and worked with our builder during the construction of our new home in Riverhall. For much of the time, we were away, which made Susie's job much more difficult, but she never complained and stepped up to do whatever was needed. She worked tirelessly to represent us on both projects and did an amazing job with pictures on the sale of our home and did open houses every weekend for months. Susie went over and above every step of the way. We couldn't have been happier with out choice of Susie as our realtor."
George & Lenice B.
" As long-time homeowners in Bell Tower Park, Fort Myers, FL, my wife and I quickly learned that selling a courtyard home (in Bell tower Park) was no easy feat, and presented a significant challenge to realtors trying to sell the house (of which we had several). Enter Berkshire Hathaway realtor Susie Eason. Susie stopped by for an initial “meet and greet” in April, and came up with a strategy that didn’t seem much different than our previous realtor agents. However, once we listed with Susie, we were impressed immediately. She is a very strong and driven realtor, who shows up whenever you need her and handles any and all of the large and small details associated with selling a house. Based on Susie’s strategy, she hosted numerous open houses… all the way through our contract timeframe with very few breaks. We also had strong open house follow-up showings, resulting from visits during Susie’s open houses – quite a few in fact … not to mention a fair number of typical home showing visits. Bottom line: Susie did what no other agent had accomplished: she sold our house to a wonderful gentleman who said he loved it. So we say, unequivocally, that Susie is a fantastic real estate agent, who works tirelessly to get the job done. She earns our greatest recommendation as well as our total respect. Thanks Susie! Job well done.
Chuck and Roxanne C
“Susie Eason has made the sale of my home so easy. She used a professional photographer to show off the best of the property and she worked hard to get the most exposure for my home. I sold in less time than I expected and got what I consider a fair price. She was available at all hours and went above and beyond in so many ways. She even organized a community wide group of open houses at the same time with radio announcements and news articles. I can HIGHLY recommend her and feel confident that she would do a fantastic job for any client.”
At a loss of finding an agent that would help us sell our condo, we searched on Homelight and came across The Fonseca Group, a wonderful husband and wife team. Paul came to talk to us and put my 86 year old mother at ease with his kindness and no pressure explanation of how he worked. We followed Paul’s advice on how to prepare our condo, fixed it up and signed our contract with him. Ana worked her “behind the scene” magic and Within a month we had two bids - the first one was not favorable, the second one was perfect! .
Ingrid and Doris Hansen
There really are no words that could convey just how wonderful of an experience we had with The Fonseca Group. No one loves to pay realtor fees, however, I can confidently say that it was worth every last dollar. We relocated out of state and Paul took care of EVERYTHING! I sent him messages nearly everyday and he was always on top of the process and never seemed annoyed by my constant contact as I held my breath due to the seemingly too good to be true process. I honestly believe that my house would have sat for another 6 months had I not trusted him to sell my home. Paul has been a complete blessing to our family.
Paul & Ana Fonseca are first class all the way! They did an excellent job marketing and selling my home in a quick fashion. Paul & Ana are so easy to work with and are always looking out for your best interest, while using their experience and expertise to guide you through the process and advise you to help avoid any missteps. If you need a realtor and true partner to sell your home, choose Paul & Ana. They are the best and know the area better than anybody. Thank you Paul & Ana for going the extra mile and doing an extraordinary job!
Aaron & Elizabeth Walker
I called Paul Fonseca after he was recommended as a match to my needs on the HomeLight sight. He returned my call that very day and came to see the house and give me his advice that same week. The house was placed on the market and I moved before it was sold. It went on the market in early March and closed April 13th. He was able to get more for the house than I thought he could and kept me informed during the whole process. Paul is excellent at what he does and I highly recommend him. He is honest and respectful, but pulls no punches.

Paul is amazing at his job. He knows the industry and is a wealth of knowledge. Paul was very prompt and helpful at all stages during my home buying experience. I am very pleased with my experience and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Paul lived in the gated community where we sold our house. He was very helpful in checking on the home as we were out of state sellers. He was very responsive and completed the sale in a timely manner.
We have worked with Paul Fonseca on a number of transactions over the past 10 years. Paul has shown us over the years that he is knowledgable of the market and very responsive. Paul works hard for his client and assures the client understands the process and assures their satisfaction with their experience. I would have no hesitation recommending Paul.
Drove into Fort Myers looking to buy new home and had the good fortune of running into Paul. On very short notice, he found us a long list of homes to look at and we found the house of our dreams within 2 days. He was extremely helpful through the whole process and we could not have been happier to have found him. I would and will highly recommend him to all looking to buy or sell a home.
Paul started as our property manager for a rental and then when we decided to sell the home he was our realtor. We were very happy with how quick and smooth the process went.
I have purchased and sold dozens of homes and never once worked with a Realtor as good as Paul. We are looking to purchase more properties to be used as vacation rentals, Paul will 100% be our realtor. He was very thorough thru out the entire process, even the closing agent was impressed!
Louis and Jessica Johnson
Paul worked very hard to help us through a short sale. He is very honest and knows what he is doing. I would recommend Paul Fonseca to all my friends and family , and I have. He will work tirelessly for all his clients.
The best agent I have worked with, hands down. I would definitely recommend Paul if you are looking to buy, sell, rent or purchase an investment. I did not realize how attentive and precise one agent could be and I am more than happy Paul was able to assist with renting out my home. Thanks again Paul!.
- Maria N.
Paul helped us on two occasions one on selling and one on renting. I deal with Paul mostly by phone and found him to be professional and knowledgeable . I would refer him to a friend.
We first met Paul when my husband & I were purchasing a home. Paul was the seller's agent. After purchasing the home, Paul was very instrumental in helping us find the necessary repairmen, painter, AC & Heating contractors, etc. Everyone he recommended was top notch in their profession. He also was extremely knowledgeable in the do's & don't's of the area. As this purchase was to be a rental property, we also needed furniture, household items (basically had to furnished the house from top to bottom). He again guided us to the right places so we would pay outrageous prices. Without Paul's knowledge and expertise, I'm sure we would have spent countless hours and more money than was necessary. In regard to renting my property, Paul has been successful in renting it out two years in a row to "Snow Birds". Thanks Paul
I worked with Paul when I purchased two condos - one in bella terra and the other in lucaya. Paul provided me with excellent advice he responsded very quickly to my questions and knew a great deal about Bella Terra and Lucaya. He helped with the negotiations on both properties and provided me with a great deal of advice prior to the purchase. I highly recommend Paul. He is honest and is a great facilitator. He knows what is going on with the property market in Lee county. I will definitely ask Paul to represent me when I sell my condo in 18 months.
Paul had been very helpful to us. When moving to Florida, we wanted to rent a home instead of purchase so that we could first learn the area and decide on where we wanted to live . Realtors don't really make money representing renters like they do when representing a seller or buyer. Paul helped us anyway and has a lot of knowledge about the area. He was extremely helpful and found us a place in which we still live in. Very happy that I have Paul in my corner.
I recently wanted to relocate for work and I called on Paul to help sell my house. He is very knowledgeable of the area and did a lot of homework regarding the listing and selling prices of other homes in the area. I was often away on company business when I had showings and Paul always went the extra mile to ensure my house was ready to show.
Paul is a very hard worker who had no qualms about keeping our house in tip top condition. He went the extra mile since we were out of town throughout the entire process due to medical problems. Paul had no issue with actually staging our house so that it would show well to potential buyers as well as digging through our house papers to save us closing costs money. We were in Missouri and he was in Fort Myers throughout the entire process. He took very good care of us throughout this entire process. If we decide to move back Paul will be our first contact!
Having personally purchased and sold various properties in multiple states over the past two decades, I can say without reservation that Paul Fonseca is one of the most effective and professional real estate agents I have had the opportunity to work with. In addition to his invaluable real estate knowledge and insight, Paul is an articulate communicator who can help navigate and effectively negotiate in behalf of his clients. Specifically and most recently, Paul sold our home significantly faster than expected, even in a competitive market. In parallel he got us a temporary rental home that was exactly what we needed. Additionally Paul represented us throughout the entire buying process of a new construction home from Lennar. In today’s market, purchasing a new construction home can be very challenging to say the least. Yet Paul provided the needed guidance and support to ensure a successful transaction from beginning to end. He knew how and when to work directly with the builder in our behalf. I highly recommend Paul Fonseca for any real estate needs.
I met Paul Fonseca when I was looking for a house after having accepted a corporate position in Ft. Myers. Coming from out-of-state, I really had to rely on him to show me neighborhoods that would be right for me. He gave me an extensive tour and was untiring in his role as guide. When I found a home that seemed to check all the boxes, he urged me to act quickly and helped me negotiate an excellent price. The house turned out to be the perfect choice for me, and six years later, after moving out of state, I decided to sell. I called Paul because he had impressed me with his straightforward, professional style (he gets right to the point, answers every question and responds quickly). He is unquestionably ethical and trustworthy. And though a busy man, he will interrupt his schedule to take care of things a seller from out-of-state worries about. I can say unequivocally that he looks out for his client. He worked with me and helped me negotiate a good price for my home and I am very pleased with how it all turned out. He has my recommendation and will earn yours.
Paul has always been exceptional in every purchase or sale! Highly recommended!
Very personable. Always listens and always exceeds my expectations!
Great people to work with excellent service very knowledgeable very happy to work with them. Highly recommended!
Looking for a Real Estate Group that provides High Touch personal communications coupled with years of experience / knowledge in all aspects of the Real Estate Market the Fonseca Group is the one to call. Their goal is to constantly exceed your expectations!
When we sold our home in Fort Myers, Florida, the Fonseca Group provided us with the highest level of customer service. The home had been in my family for 50+ years, and there was a certain level of trepidation on our part that we would find a realtor who shared our vision for the sale. Paul Fonseca was recommended to us through HomeLight, and we could not be happier with the service he provided. From his first contact with us, he was gentle and professional. He did not come in with a hard sales pitch, which would have turned us off, but came with a very professional package illustrating similar recent sales in the area, and examples of the advertisement he does with properties he represents. He clearly explained the sales process, what our financial responsibilities would be, what the buyer’s would be, how the realtors involved would be compensated, and how The Fonseca Group would facilitate the sales process. He had researched our property, listened carefully and respectfully to our concerns, and asked pertinent questions. He did not try to sway us from our vision, but worked with us to achieve it. He was very matter-of-fact in discussing strengths and weaknesses of the property, actually pointing out strengths that we had not considered. He made reasonable suggestions of things for us to do so the property showed better, while respecting our desire to not make big repairs or undertake large projects. He was very helpful in recommending a cleaning service and handyman when we asked him, and we were happy with the services they provided. (He even helped us through a really tight spot when movers didn’t show up, with a recommendation of a service that could help us. His contacts saved us!) He priced our home realistically and fairly, taking into consideration that it needed some work. We appreciated his directness in determining the pricing, and feel that his expertise in knowing the market absolutely contributed to the quick sale of the home. The point was to sell the house, not keep it on the market for weeks on end. He followed through with everything he said he would do, he kept appointments he made, arriving on time, he called when he said he would. He updated us throughout the process, including photography of the property and showings. Once an offer was made, he worked quickly with us on that process, keeping us in the loop, including information on the home inspection. His Group, including Safe Harbor Title, worked with us to close quickly on the property. He made the entire process easy, and we had never expected it to be easy. Paul Fonseca comes to the table with a great deal of knowledge about the local real estate market, and extensive experience in finishing the deal. He takes his responsibility to the seller seriously, providing professional photography of the property, and extensive advertisement to reach the public. He interacts in a professional manner, always taking the property owner’s wishes and needs into consideration. He listens! He does everything he says he will do, and more. He always made us feel like we were his most important clients, the sign of a true professional. We recommend him highly.
Charles and Kim Wester
Paul was one of the best realtor’s I’ve worked with. He was professional, efficient and he did not try to sell me on something if I wasn’t interested. He let me lead and put me first. Everything went smoothly and he was very accommodating. He also had recommendations for handymen and contractors and was very knowledgeable about the business. The title company he used was amazing. I like working with people who I know are going to get the job done right, so I can sleep at night. I would work with him again and recommend him as a realtor. Thank you Paul!
Paul and Ana Fonseca were my wife's and my realtors for our newly constructed home. Paul was actively involved with the purchase from identifying and showing us various new development projects, recommending the better builders in the Fort Myers area, assisting in the contract phase of the purchase and providing great advice at the design center. Paul even followed through by being at the pre-closing house walk through insuring we got all that we had contracted for and also being present at the closing. We have worked with a number of realtors over the years and can unequivocally state that Paul was by far the best realtor I have worked with. He is very responsive during the process, he is quick to return calls and text messages, and is available when needed. He clearly has years of experience and provides insightful advice when needed. I highly recommend Paul and Ana Fonseca who have an outstanding service attitude. Thanks for your outstanding service!
Dr. Steven M. Jacques
Ana and Paul, Selling our home could not have been easier. You did such a great job and had us in contract in just a few days. We are so pleased that you took care of little things for us and made the whole process stress free. Thank you for everything.
Ana Fonseca was a pleasure to work with! She was responsive to our questions, easily accessible, and coordinated our buying experience with kindness and professionalism. I would gladly work with her again in the future for buying or selling a home.
The Fowler Family
Susie was so amazing to work with in selling our home and looking for a new property. She is so knowledgeable, informative, and a pleasure to interact with. She put us at ease and made the entire process more simplified than we could have imagine. She works quickly and we were able to sell our home in a matter of DAYS at the price we desired. Thank you so much, Susie!!!
Ray & Debbie L
Susie helped us get our Villa sold on a very short timeline. She followed up on leads and was very responsive to our requests. I would be happy to refer her to anyone who needs to buy or sell real estate.
Susie handled the sale of my property in a professional manner with a personal touch. I could not have asked for a smoother sale. She kept me informed during every phase of the sale. This was not my first property sale but Susie definitely made it my easiest. Thank you Susie!!
I met Susie Eason at a home she was showing. I’ve bought 8 houses over the years. Ms. Eason is the BEST Realtor I’ve ever worked with. After meeting her at the “Open House” and talking a little-I was very sure she was my type of Realtor & Person- HELPFUL but NOT PUSHY ! “I” asked “Her” to help ME find a home. She’s a delightful young woman & will do Anything- to help YOU find the home YOU’RE looking for. Even AFTER “The Sale” she went “Above & Beyond” the usual ! She kept me “Informed”- when I had to fly home before closing.
Thanks for yet again for making it a pleasant experience purchasing a home in Punta Gorda. Paul as always you were there during the process with your calm demeanor which helped with the stress that come with it! - Thank you
