Ron says: There are not enough good words to describe the pleasure it was to find Fred in our home search. I live in New York, and my daughter is in Florida, and thanks to Fred has just moved into her new home yesterday, just over a 1 1/2 months after we started looking. We emailed 6 brokers on Trulia to start our search, and only Fred responded. With a wealth of advice up front, about foreclosures, REO's, short sales, everything. He told us we should get pre-approved on a loan before starting, to aid us in our search. Fred was there every step of the way, going out of his way to get documents to my daughter to sign, scan, email to the lender, constant communication. He truly is a blessing for us. Ron H

Patricia says: I have used Fred's real estate service since I moved to Pasco County. I called him from Alaska to find me a place to rent. Not only did he find me an excellent home for a reasonable price put he put the deposit down for me and filled the applications out for me over the phone. Whenever I had difficulty getting something fixed in the house, Fred would go to bat for me and get the problem fixed. When my family outgrew that home, I called Fred, and he went to work finding me another house, sent the moving letter with a request for return of deposit. I was able to move gradually with the least amount of discomfort because of Fred's determination to serve me as a client. About two months before my second lease was to expire, I called Fred to let him know I was not happy in the house. Fred immediately went to work looking for a new home for me and negotiate with my landlord to accept my deposit as my last months rent, so I would have enough money to pay my deposit in my next home. Again, Fred came through with a wonderful home with reasonable rent. I truely appriciate Fred's dedication to his clients and I am in the Third beautiful home. I am contemplating negotiating my third lease or purchasing a home in the area. Of course I have called Fred for his advice and help. As a single woman with 5 children, I know I could never have been able to secure these wonderful home without the expert advice and support of Fred Strickroot. For me, Fred has taken the stressful process of finding a rental, securing a lease and ensuring a landlord maintains the property satisfactorily and turned it into a comfortable smooth transition.

Ron says: I want to express my deep appreciation for the kindness and compassion many Floridians have shown my daughter since she moved there about 4 months ago. She just moved into her new home in western Pasco county. We sincerely want to commend and recommend our lender Rhonda Pulver of VanDyk Mortgage, who though we were looking for a modest home, treated us like we were after a mansion. Rhonda took us step by step, hurdling every obstacle, and made sure our home buying experience was as smooth and delay free as possible. We also want to thank our broker, Fred Strickroot of HomeNet, who went out of his way to get documents to my daughter, showed her home after home, and provided advice, hands on guidance, and continual updates. It was almost as if we were his prime focus. In just over a month from when we started looking, my daughter is in her home. Rhonda and Fred are the reason. Combined with all the wonderful friends she has made in such a short period,my daughter is so happy that words don't suffice. Thank you, Fantastic Floridians, for the welcome you have given my daughter. Ron H
Christina says: I moved to Florida from upstate New York in 2011 on my own; a 23-year-old completely new to the foreign world of real estate and home-ownership. Even though I was looking at homes in the lowest of price ranges (between $25,000-$35,000 list price) and wouldn't have been considered worth the time or effort by most real estate agents or brokers, Fred gave me a prompt and immensely helpful response with exactly the advice I needed to begin looking at homes and eventually find the perfect one. He led me through every single step of the process with the utmost dedication, and treated me as if I was buying a million dollar home. Even though he had nothing to gain from such a small and insignificant sale, he spent so much time with me, showing me homes and answering my questions, making me feel like a welcome Floridian. He gave me special attention, made me feel important, returned every phone call and addressed every concern I had. I was so comfortable working with him, and frankly I feel BLESSED to have had such a selfless and accommodating (not to mention professional) man working tirelessly on my behalf, to find me a wonderful first home. My search and purchase concluded seamlessly and I felt like the luckiest girl in the world after he helped make my dream come true. I would recommend Fred to anyone of any age and any class, with any level of experience in buying property. He has been such an asset -- absolutely invaluable -- and I owe such a huge chunk of my happiness and success here in Florida to him. Anyone who would speak ill of him or give a bad review has clearly never done legitimate business with him, because he's been a godsend to me. Truly one-in-a-million. THANK YOU, FRED!!! - Christina H.
