St Petersburg Short Sale information for buyers and sellers
One of our Short sale sellers.
Coming to the conclusion to list my home as a short sale was not easy. I turned to Manny Baginski at South Beaches Real Estate Professionals for assistance. Manny showed me the process could be easy and less stressful – with Manny my short sale was a lot easier than I had ever dreamed! She was thorough and maintained excellent communication for the duration of the process. Without her dedication and expertise, I would be experiencing the consequences of a foreclosure on my record. My decision to have her as my agent was the best decision I could have made. I HIGHLY recommend Manny Baginski! I’m grateful for a job well done!
If you are looking for more than just a Realtor, hire Manny Baginski!
I am a single mother and first-time homebuyer – although I had a strict budget and location to adhere to, Anne never once tried to sway me to buy something more expensive or in another neighborhood just becase she could guarantee a sale. She never stopped looking, she never gave up on my situation even though it was very constraining and difficult to find something for me in my situation. She worked harder on this small commission than I am sure she has ever worked for a large one, always had a pleasant attitude, and always gave my search priority when necessary. She didn’t let the “little guy” slip through the cracks just because it wasn’t going to make her a millionaire or get her on the board. I respect, admire and appreciate Anne Hensel for being the best realtor I have ever come across, but more importantly, for being the best human being when she didn’t have to under the circumstances. If anyone has ever had an experience of being taken advantage of in life, Anne will restore your faith in mankind. To put it in even more perspective, with her busy schedule, she also finds time to donate her time and efforts to various charities and individuals in need. It is an honor and privilege to know Anne Hensel and I will continue to refer anyone and everyone I meet to her for future homebuying needs. Christine E. Skiados
This is a testimonial from Jan, a buyer in Seminole isle. I really admired how well prepared she was and how much she already knew about the community. Jan knew exactly what she wanted and was not settling for second best. We put in several offers till “her dream come true” but it was all worth it. She probably bought the best deal in Seminole Isle ever.
Anne Hensel is the best! I kept running across her name whenever I did a computer search on Seminole Isles. Her website had up-to-the minute information posted on vacancies within the complex, an in-depth analysis of the sales which had closed and projections on where the local real estate market is headed. She definitely had her finger on the pulse and I wanted to work with “the expert!” The first time we spoke on the phone, I was impressed with her HIGH ENERGY and knew she would find me the perfect place, which of course, she did! She is a long time resident of this area and her enthusiasm for all it has to offer is contagious. She is a great communicator in addition to being very knowledgeable and professional. She has a way of making the search seem like fun, because she truly loves her job. Thank you Anne for finding me the perfect home! Cheers! J. Aldridge -
Got this testimonial years ago from Kim Evans, a mortgage broker that I met early on in my real estate carrier. She was just wonderful to work with, always on top of things and always returned phone calls and updated her clients.
I have had the pleasure of working with Anne Hensel for many years now in several capacities. She has represented me as a buyer’s and seller’s Realtor. I have also had the privilege of working with her in my mortgage company. I have had the opportunity to see all sides of Anne and her work ethic. My conclusion has been the same since the first time we started working together. She is tops in her field! She knows her industry inside and out and works harder than most to make her customers dreams and wishes realized. I have for years and will still recommend Anne Hensel without reservation for anybodies real estate needs. You will get someone who goes above and beyond their job duties to make it a pleasant experience for you.
Richard Goldstein has endorsed your work as Owner at South Beaches Real Estate Professionals.
I’ve written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.Details of the Recommendation: “Simply put, Anne is an amazing realtor, and I would recommend her to anybody. In fact, the best endorsement I can give her is that I plan to use her again. We got a dream house, in an area we would not have discovered without Anne’s expertise, and had the piece of mind of trusting Anne on every aspect of our relationship and transaction. Anne was outstanding on so many dimensions: First, she is truly a subject matter expert on the territory she covers. Second, she made me feel like I mattered. I wasn’t just a commission — I was a buyer with unique needs, unique concerns, and a specific vision. Anne took the time, and really *listened* to my wife and me, and asked clarifying questions to truly understand our needs. In fact, Anne helped us more clearly define our needs, and go in a direction that we had not originally anticipated. Third, she worked hard, and got us amazing results. In the end, the townhome we bought was the result of her knowledge of the area; Anne knew of a unit coming to market that would be perfect for us, well before it ever hit the listings. So we were able to make an offer as soon as it was available. As an out of state buyer, I was concerned about the communication issues, or whether being out of site would be out of mind. Anne put those unfounded concerns to rest immediately, and kept a regular flow of information and feedback that matched my level of questioning and participation. In case it’s not clear, I was thrilled with my experience with Anne, and can heartily endorse her without any reservations.”

I truly believe in “goes around, comes around” and these clients were the best example. I met them 8 years before they actually called me to sell their townhome in Treasure Island. Now, year later we are still staying in touch via social media and e mails.
We choose Anne Hensel to sell our FL house when we moved back to NY because she helped us find Florida rentals for our friends years ago when it was not part of her job and she didn’t even know us. We remembered that act of kindness and never thought of hiring anyone but Anne Hensel to sell our house. We also respected her skills and determination in starting and growing her company.
Anne professionally guided us during the sales process relative to decorating and showing the house, pricing etc. Whenever we hit a roadblock Anne figured a way around it. She has the ability to find potential buyers in a very timely manner and does a great job of keeping all concerned in the communication loop. She always is confident and cheerful and made us feel like the end game was going to work out well AND IT DID!
We would never consider using anyone but Anne. She is that good!!

John and Pauline are some of the most awesome people I know. I love to be around them. They have been my clients for many many years and I am always happy to see them and talk to them.
We have bought & sold three condos in Treasure Island with ANNE HENSEL as our realtor. We bought & sold a house in Redington Shores with ANNE. We have bought & sold a house in North Redington with ANNE. We just recently completed our 11th real estate transaction on a house in St. Pete Beach with ANNE as our realtor. As you can see, we are extremely satisfied & will not deal with anyone other than ANNE HENSEL. She will be assisting us with the sale of this house & purchase of a new one, as soon as we are ready to do so.
Anne is the most competent & knowledgeable realtor in Florida, as far as we are concerned.

I met CC about ten years ago when she first got her real Estate license. We worked together for a few years but then she left the business altogether and went back to school. She is still a very good friend of mine and we enjoy each other’s company. So thank you for the review I appreciate it.
Anne Hensel is by far the sharpest realtor I have ever worked with. She knows how to listen and she understands what her clients want. She goes above and beyond for every single client and will get them the best deal in town.
She is also very knowledgeable and stays abreast of the market conditions. I would recommend Anne to anyone because I would be doing them a favor.
