Noteworthy Testimonials from Our Clients


March 2018




We had the best experience working with Sarah and Sabrina! They helped us all the way from selling our beautiful condo to finding our new perfect single family home! They are always there for you when you need to ask a question or help with something. You can really tell they know the area well and that they always have good insight in the different parts of the deal. I highly recommend working with Sarah and Sabrina and will definitely use them next time we decide to move (if ever:))!

Generously shared knowledge about the area with us, always going above and beyond their call of duty. Highly recommend these two professional, friendly ladies.

Hi Sarah and Sabrina,

As we have our morning coffee in chilly WI, we think of our beautiful home in Islamorada!

Our snowbird migration is eminent and is becoming a central part of our life!

When we started our informal process of considering a residence in the Keys (4-5 years ago) you had the most appealing approach to our thoughts and future requirements.

You did not try to flip us into real estate as so many realtors do; instead you spent significant time getting to know us and understanding our lifestyle and needs. This was accomplished most professionally and subtlly by showing us various neighborhoods and spending time with us.

Very early you suggested we would enjoy Venetian Shores with the wonderful dockage available and access to offshore and backcountry waters. Over the years as our gestation period for purchasing seemed never ending, you never lost interest in us and continued to present us with new opportunities you believed would be most appropriate for us.

We felt completely confident you would find us the "right property".

The call from Sabrina saying, "I found your home!" was a most welcome call which translated into our piece of "paradise!" We thank you for your professionalism, guidance, time, and expertise but mostly in helping us find the perfect residence for our family!

Sarah and Sabrina are just the BEST realtors to work with.

With Best Regards,

Sue & Steve Pfeifer



"We were waiting for the perfect home for our family and after being referred to them by our local fishing guide, worked with Sarah & Sabrina for over a year and half before we finally found the one that was "it".   Sarah & Sabrina showed us home after home, never pressuring us or losing patience. We are now living in our own beautiful paradise & couldn't be happier with our choice to work with them!"

~L.F. & D.T., Tavernier

We worked primarily with Sarah. She was fantastic. We never felt pressured. She was able to answer our million questions and get us our dream home. Sarah is very knowledgeable about the Islamorada area and was able to provide us with very sound advice.

Sabrina Wampler and Sarah Ewald have served me as my real estate agents since 2005. They have sold two of my estate homes and helped me buy my perfect retirement home inthe Florida Keys. My transactions have been completed professionally but also with a concern for our happiness in the completion of each deal. Ethical, smart, realistic...if you want a team that cares about that...pick them! A satisfied client of Fishing For Homes!

Outstanding. We have bought a few properties through the years, and we were truly impressed with the understanding of what we wanted and their professionalism. They are very knowledgeable in the Keys and a huge help in all aspects of the closing. We highly recommend both Sabrina and Sarah.

 - The Stenvik Family, LHP, FL



My husband and I found the perfect condo through Fishing for Homes. Working together with Sarah & Sabrina was amazing! They helped us with all the different steps of the buying process and were always very effective in communication as well as professional. I strongly recommend Fishing for Homes when you are planning on buying a home and want to feel safe all the way.

- Karin Mörner, Sweden



Thank you so much for being so attentive and wonderful regarding our search for the perfect retirement place in Florida.  It has been an interesting summer for us, struggling to figure out details regarding our real estate needs in Florida.

It's a long story, but we have decided that we need to be closer to the Fort Lauderdale area based on Jeff's opportunity to do some work in semi-retirement in that area.

We are sorry that this will not result in a sale for you...  :(  But we want you to know how very appreciative we are for the help you provided to us while there in the Keys.  Not only did you accommodate our requests while we were visiting the Keys, but you also went above and beyond in helping us with other details (like fishing info!). Your wonderful follow-up, attentiveness, and attention to detail make you a fabulous agent!

Thank you again for everything!

Dr. Jeffrey and Priscilla Nelson

Sarah and Sabrina are a dynamite team. They helped my husband and I buy our 1st home 2 years ago and we couldn't be happier. They kept  our finances, style, and hearts in mind at all times. Any question we had, they were there. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a home here in paradise.

Sarah & Sabrina,
Thanks for following through. Really, really appreciate it. You're always good about keeping your word and I think the world of you.

This recommendation is long overdue. Sarah and Sabrina did an excellent job helping my wife and I find the perfect place in the Keys for our vacation home. Since we were from out of state she was able to condense a lot of effort in to a short period of time. Thank you!

A Different Kind of Fan Mail...

I must send this email just to compliment the both of you for your tenacity. I receive your well put together missives weekly! I have not opted out of your site solely for that reason....your tenacity!! When I first contacted you things were different. I feel they will get even more different before I am going to jump in. However, being much older and having been in your position in the past, I just wanted to send you a word of encouragement. Things will certainly turn eventually...and I for one will ONLY seek your professional expertise when that moment arrives. All the best...

- Dwight



When it came time for my husband and I to buy our first home, we knew that Sarah was the person we should talk to. Sarah and Sabrina were very efficient, knowledgeable and professional during our search! We never felt pressured or pushed into something we weren't interested in, but at the same time Sarah surprised us with a showing of a house that we thought would be out of our range. It turned out to be the house we bought! This house was a short sale situation, so the hardest part of the entire process was the wait period. During that time Sarah did her best to keep us updated. We always felt that we were in good hands with Sarah and Sabrina, and we're very pleased with how everything turned out!

Thanks so much!
Katy and Nick ~Islamorada

My husband and I wanted to buy a vacation home in the Keys, even though we currently live and work in another state. We were concerned about the logistics of doing this long distance — how many trips would we have to take to find a place, and once we found a place, how difficult would it be to pull off a closing from a 1000 miles away? Who would pay attention to all those annoying little details you have to worry about during the house buying process? Then we found Sarah and Sabrina, and we stopped worrying! They were terrific. When we came into town to look at houses, they spent the time up front to understand what we wanted, had everything lined up & were extremely organized. We found a house on the first visit, but couldn't agree with the seller on a price. Since they now knew what we were looking for, they watched out for another property for us. We trusted their judgment enough to put an offer on one sight unseen. They kept track of all the "to do" list all the way through the closing process, and we closed on time with no problems. We are now the happy owners of a house in Islamorada, and want to extend many thanks to both Sarah & Sabrina — they made the process a breeze, and we were thrilled with the result. I would recommend them to anyone looking for efficient, organized and knowledgeable realtors.

"It was a beautiful, blue-sky warm morning in the FL Keys when I walked into Moorings Realty and was promptly greeting by a smiling Sabrina. Within half an hour, I was walking out the door with a list of drive-bys that Sabrina had pulled out of her data base. Within an hour of that, I was ready to take a look at the 1st drive-by, a perfect condo on the Bayside. Sabrina gave me a tour the very next day and I was ready to make an offer-which did become successful! So, if you like organization and like to surround yourself with people who get the job done-Sabrina, Sarah, and Moorings Realty is your best bet in the Florida Keys!"

Dear Sarah and Sabrina,
We have been vacationing in the Florida Keys for over 10 years and have always felt so "at home" there. It is a dream come true for us to have a little piece of paradise in Islamorada. We cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work and dedication to finding us the right property. You make a great team and are both delightful to work with. We always felt like you were just a phone call away.

Wish you continued success!

Thanks so much for the awesome experience of buying our new home! We never knew that the home buying process could be so much fun! We had heard all sorts of horror stories of people buying homes in this "short sale" or "foreclosure" market, but not with the two of you! Thanks so much for helping us find the home of our dreams! We will definitely send any and all referrals your way!

When I first considered buying a house in the Keys as an investment, I contacted several Real Estate firms. Sarah and Sabrina contacted me within 30 minutes and turned out to be the only firm to actually make an effort to contact me as a potential buyer. Two days later I made weekend plans to tour potential beach houses. Sarah and Sabrina had a half dozen homes pulled and scheduled. I found the properties consistent with what I wanted to see from a price point, as well as features. They successfully helped us negotiate an offer and were very active in the sales process through our due-diligence and closing.

They were very familiar with the market, potential rental rates, comparable sales, not to mentioned good restaurants, dive spots and fishing holes. I feel we found the dream house we had been looking for, not to mention found two new friends in the Keys.

We were looking for a vacation home in the Keys and had the pleasure of working with Sabrina and Sarah. Sabrina and Sarah are professional, friendly, and caring. They have great knowledge of the local real estate market and were available and willing to work with us on Saturdays and Sundays. They also recommended a great mortgage broker that gave us excellent service, a very low rate, and was able to do the closing in two weeks. Sabrina and Sarah are a great team and we had a wonderful experience working with them. We did not only have a professional relationship but we also became friends.

We want to say Thank You to our friends Sabrina and Sarah for finding our family a great vacation home.

When you want the best just go with the local girls. When it came time to sell my dive business, I knew I needed the assistance of an agent with specialized knowledge. What better fit than Sarah, a former boat Captain and a fabulous agent? Sarah, Your specialized knowledge made all the difference in the world. With a great targeted marketing strategy, we sold the business in record time. Thanks for your help.

Patricia Taylor,

I contacted you, and of course, was blown away by your openness and honesty. You really educated me about what was going on down on the Keys... something only a top agent will take time to do. I felt I was able to understand a very complex market thanks to you, and I was confident that I was in good hands.

Thanks again, Sarah. Not only would I gladly refer anyone I know to you, I'd be happy to tell them the story of my experience, and how finding an honest agent made a 300% difference!

Dear Sarah,

I just wanted to write to you to "Thank You" for the super help in the sale of our house. Seeing how the market was on the down slide, you always had a positive attitude on whatever the problem . Always answering any and all of my concerns. Your tenacity on selling our property was remarkable.

We look forward to seeing you again and when we're ready to sell or buy again...WE WILL CALL YOU!!



My husband and I decided to downsize our living spaces and construct a new, smaller home in the Florida Keys. To do this we needed to sell our primary residence . Sabrina was so efficient at helping us sell our property !. Our home was a high end house and although the Florida Keys is vey popular, listings in this price range are a challenge to our local realtors. Through Sabrina's diligence, experience, knowledge and positive attitude we were in good hands....she sold our home and helped facilitate our retirement dream!!!
