Jaimi & Chris' First Home Together!
Nathan ~ Just note to thank you for being such a wonderful real-estate agent from the very first minute we spoke. You took the time to listen to EXACTLY what I wanted in a home, every single little detail, and then delivered it. We are very busy working professionals with little time to spend searching on weekends and evenings... and you wasted none of our time, working around our schedule at all odd hours. We've worked with other agents in the area... Your honesty, straight-forward attitude, work ethics, dedication and commitment to making us as clients happy in our search from BEGINNING to END rises beyond any level of service we have ever experienced in the area. I personally felt like I was looking at houses with my close friend, rather than my agent. You told me what was great in each house we looked at, and then when to run because you knew what I wouldn't be happy with!!! I truly felt like you had my safety and best interest in mind at all times, not just looking to make a quick sell. We can't wait to close in just 3 weeks... and I am so grateful to you for helping us to take this exciting next step in our lives! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Jaimi and Chris
Mr. Jim and his agent
My agent and I want to thank you for the fine job done by you for everyone concerned. I have no doubt you will have a long and rewarding career in real estate. I will recommend you at every opportunity.
Mr. Charles sells his condo
For over 35 years, as a real estate developer and property owner, I have worked with numerous real estate brokers and sales associates. You have stood out - I have rarely met anyone to be more diligent or work harder to achieve his client's goals.
It was a pleasure working with you on the sale of Lauren's condominium at Island Walk in Tampa and we wish you continued success and food fortune.
Sharon R's buys a condo
Working with Nathan Bangs as my realtor was an integral part of making my 3rd home purchase the smoothest one yet.I felt confident in my offer that we worked up based on research we did and his already vast knowledge of the downtown Tampa market.By quickly developing a relationship with my mortgage broker, Nathan was able to handle most of the tactical work directly with him, taking a lot off my plate. This was critical in order to meet the quick closing date, but most importantly it enabled me to stay focused on my demanding job, with the peace of mind that everything was taken care of.His attention to detail and follow through took all stress out of the biggest purchase of my life.
I highly recommend him as a resource for buying or selling your home.
Carmen's selling process
I really appreciate your pro-active approach to maintaining communication with your clients regarding status updates and market news and analysis - I've worked with realtors in the past and their client communiques and updates pale in comparison with what you offer. Thanks for keeping us informed throughout the process.
Marketing at its best
Hi Nathan ! We received 3 postcards with 3 different listing today. Yours (ours) was by far the best - thanks for doing a great job ! - Anders & Marianne
Kristian I's Vacation home in Tampa
When I first brought my business to Tampa, I was unsure which area was right for me. I looked high and low across Hillsborough county, and the Bangs team was with me every step of the way! They did not quit until they had located the property which was right for me. The service and support I got from the Bangs team both during and after my transaction sets the standard for customer service. Not only will I do business with the Bangs team again, they come with my highest recommendations for all of your property needs. Speak to them and understand why they should be *your* Tampa-area broker!
Liz & Mark Sell their condo
Hey Nathan We think that you are probably the best agent we have ever worked with...very organized and keeping everyone in the information loop. Mark and I have bought and sold plenty of properties and I can honestly say that this was the best experience we've had. Thanks a lot. Liz & Mark G
I would absolutely recommend Nathan to anyone looking to either buy or sell real estate. We did not have much familiarity with the Tampa area and Nathan was extremely helpful in helping us find the right location and then the right place. He helped us in all phases of the process from beginning to end and even afterwards. I don't view Nathan as just a real-estate agent but more like a friend. Gino V
Marc Buys in Tampa
I would recommend Nathan to anyone looking to buy a home. I lived out of town when I first started working with him, and he accomodated my schedule and met me to look at houses whenever I came to Tampa. He stuck with me for 9 months until we found the perfect place for me. Marc Matthews
Nilda & Jose and Family
Our experience with Nathan Bangs was the greatest! I never had a more cooperative and friendly agent. He calls and lets you know he's alive and is most willing to answer your questions and help in whatever you need. We used his services and subsequently referred him to our daughter who also used his services. We would recommend him to everyone we know - he's great!
Nathan and that's the honest truth.
Nilda & Jose
Jordan & Beth's First Home
Working with Nathan Bangs was a wise decision. This was my first home and it was important that we bought the right house. Nathan sat down with us to find out what our needs were and applied that to the homes he showed us.
His schedule was very flexible to show us homes during our free time. He listened to us when we had questions and always had the answers. He even provided us with a home inspector that did an outstanding job.
Nathan Bangs is more than just a realtor. He goes out of his way to provide the best customer service available. After we moved in, he made sure that everything was alright and asked if he could do anything else for us. He cares about his clients and treats them as friends and not as just another sale.
If you are looking for your first home, a new home or are trying to sell your home, Nathan Bangs will make sure that your goals are met! He is the realtor to get the job done, and get it done right! I would recommend Nathan Bangs to anyone who is looking to buy a home or sell a home and let the professional do his magic.

Lauren Selles Her Condo
I feel extremely confident recommending Nathan as your realator. As a seller of my Harbour Island Condo, I only had positive experiences with Nathan, and I was impressed that Nathan always did what ever he could to insure the sale was closed as soon as possible at the best price the market allowed.
Jim & Cynthia Sell on the Beach
We met Nathan Bangs for the first time while interviewing and getting facts about selling our beach property. First impressions are important to us, and his approach and knowledge in this field were incredible. After we signed a contract, we went on an adventurous journey with a difficult buyer, but he dealt with everything professionally and efficiently and always kept us informed. My husband and I learned a lot through this process! Nathan provided us with advertisements, updates as to property sales in area, weekly tallies of interested buyers, and sent postcard and emails. He was always available via phone or emails and even made a trip to an emergency room to reach us. Nathan is committed 110% and will give your property the best shot at selling. We recommend him as a true professional!

Bob and Dawn
My wife and I want to thank you so much for going above and beyond our expectations in all aspects of our recent purchase of a condo in Tampa.
From finding the perfect property to all your help with resources involving the inspection, insurance, utilities, decorating, closing, renting it out, and on and on, we just can't say enough about how helpful, personable and professional you have been. Through the years, we have worked with many real estate people, but you are truly Number One, The Best!
The success of this most rewarding experience is the direct result of your outstanding efforts, your expertise and your commitment to excellence.
Bob and Dawn
It has been a pleasure working with you regarding the sale of my property in Tampa. Your knowledge of the Tampa area and your aggressive marketing approach ensured a quick sell. We completed every transaction electronically without any difficulties. Again I thank you for your very impressive responsiveness, your assistance with all aspects of preparing the home, and most of all for the SOLD sign. If anyone ever needs a reference call regarding your capabilities please have them call me.
Nathan was extremely dependable and went the extra mile to get our buyer and price. I would recommend him to anyone.
My experience with Nathan and his team was a true blessing. I found my self in the middle of a divorce and needed to sell my home quickly. The problem, I still owed 100% of the value of the home and most of the homes in my community were listed well below the $240,400 that I owed the bank. Nathan told us that he had a lot of experience helping couples in our situation and could help us out. Nathan immediately began working with the bank from day one and ensured I got all the needed documentation to the bank. Throughout the whole process, Nathan kept in touch and kept me up to date on everything involving the pricing and the listing. After having our house listed just 2 months, my wife moved out and I was left with the mortgage payment on my own, which I could not make on my own. Nathan's team kicked it into overdrive and got aggressive with the price of the home. Within 30 days I had an offer from a potential buyer. The problem, it was for $170,000. Nathan negotiated with the bank and buyers and the bank agreed to accept $175,000. At closing, I did not need to bring any cash, which was good because I had none. My largest concern throughout this whole divorce was avoiding bankruptcy, foreclosure and ruining my credit. Because Nathan was able to find me a buyer in time and work with the bank to accept a considerably lower price, I was able to avoid foreclosure and walked away with only 1 late payment on my credit. The bank agreed to wipe out the debt on the remaining $65,000. Like I said this whole experience was a true blessing.
Ah! the good times and worrisome, the bad! After an excellent relationship during the boom, Nathan Bangs, once again, adapted to market conditions and showed his true professionalism, knew the market, foresaw conditions and always provided just the right advice. I'd always expected nothing from Nathan, but a tireless professional, dedicated to his clients; I was not disappointed, ever. As I once wrote to Nathan, " If anyone should be a realtor, it is you." Alain R.
I highly recommend Nathan. I had my condo listed on the market with a previous broker for almost 10 months. After I hired Nathan, he had a deal in 30 days. I had a very "rocky" process of repairs and issues with the HOA. Nathan was always there to help and give advice; from listing to closing. I didn't get just a real estate professional, but a friend. Thanks Nathan!
Stephen and Cori
Our Story: True story. We were at a dead trying to sell our home that we had listed with another realtor for 11 months. We were paying two mortgages and were being forced into foreclosure on our home when we went searching for another option. we didn't know where to turn. After we found Nathan he educated us on exactly what we needed to do to try and avoid foreclosure by considering a short sale instead. We had no idea what that was at the time. Nathan said to trust him and trust him we did and within 2 months we had numerous offers on our home and closed extremely fast. Not only avoiding foreclosure and saving our credit but moving on with our lives! We have dealt with a lot of realtors in our time buying and selling, but after this we will never call another one. Nathan is our guy. We 110% recommend Nathan to everyone out there looking for realtor assistance. I don't know how many real people are left out there trying to help the everyday person with this horrible real estate market, Nathan Bangs is definitely one of them. Thanks Nathan!Stephen and Cori
Tammy is the type of agent who sticks with you and helps you find just the right place after quite a few sellers have rejected your offers. I personally took Tammy from Pinellas to Hillsborough in my search for just the right place, location for me to live and she went with me and even suggested some areas I originally didn't think would be right for me. It was a pleasure working with Tammy. Denise
Tammy, I want to sincerely thank you for your very professional assistance in helping me buy a new home here in Tampa. Through your realty knowledge and experience, you turned a potential nerve-wracking house-hunt into one that was indeed a lot more pleasant than I could have expected. You put me at ease from the moment we met, so much so, that I was confident enough in your judgment to let you be my "eyes" and based my final buying decision on your recommendation without having seen the property until I moved down here from Chicago. While I was busy in Chicago, you took care of all the minutiae required to close the deal, from handling all the paper work, attending to the inspections, providing contacts for mortgage and insurance brokers, to taking care of all the myriad details associated with the final flurry of closing activities. Your tremendous assistance saved me the expense of flying down here to handle the transaction details myself, or having to obtain the services of a local real estate lawyer that I might have had to use in my stead. Your follow-up assistance after I moved in was also greatly appreciated and I am more than glad to recommend your services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Tampa area. I not only look upon you as a highly-skilled professional realtor, but I consider you a valued friend as well. Many thanks again! Lloyd E
Tom and Ginny O.
Professionals are rare. This is what attracted us to Nathan. We needed advice and we needed recommendations for our exact situation. That is exactly what we got with Nathan Bangs. We had seen his marketing and seen his results in local flyers. His energy and hustle is what brought us RESULTS in the sale of our home on Harbour Island. This man knows his business!!
Thank you, Nathan,
Ginny and Tom O
You are the best. facts no fiction! I have two properties in Tampa and if they are to be sold in the future i know who will list them.. YOU!
