      Sean made everything smooth and it went great. He answered all questions and concerns. I would recommend Sean to anyone.

    • Sean couldn't negotiate a deal because our house was a short sale. Sean was very thorough and helpful throughout our selling process. We had a buyer really quick , we just had to wait on the bank bureaucracy.

    • Sean is a true professional and helped us tremendously with the sale of our townhouse. Sean and Darcy were pro-active in all of their communication, signing of documents was handled quickly and efficiently, listing of the property was completed in a timely manner, and the closing was a breeze. Sean provided the insight that we needed in order to justify improvements to our property, a pricing strategy, and above all, a fast and efficient sale of the townhouse. I will work with Sean again, and I recommend him to friends, family, and co-workers.

      - Jon Perez
    • first reached out to Sean with a question on a property, which was not going to be a good match for me but his knowledge of the area in which I wanted to move to was great. Since I was working in a limited price point it took some time as properties went very fast. We worked out a plan, he kept me focused when I was discouraged, answered all my crazy questions at all hours. Negotiations seem to make him shine ! Bottom line is he said he would find me a home ... Was not the easiest process but HE MADE IT HAPPEN !

      - Vivian Scarfogliero

    • What a great team to work with! We began working with the Sean Bates from the Carrington Real Estate Team several months ago guiding and advising us on getting our property prepared for the market, and once we reached that point we had a buyer within two days. The professionalism and assistance showed by Sean Bates was incredible, he gained our trust from day one and we knew we were in good hands throughout the process. Sean was always available to us, responsive, and very knowledgeable of the Tampa Bay and Land O Lakes area. Most importantly, he was always honest. If you are a buyer or seller I would highly recommend Sean Bates to handle your home buying/selling needs.

    • 2867 Chestnut Avenue Ronkonkoma, NY 11779 April 12, 2015 Carrington Real Estate Services 2124 W. Kennedy Blvd., Suite A Tampa Florida 33606 RE:116-15 Hammocks Glade Drive Riverview Florida 33569 Dear Carrington Real Estate Services: I would like to compliment Sean Bates for the excellent service he provided with finding a buyer and completing the short-sale transaction. I am highly please with the outcome. I am so grateful for his hard work, dedication in finding a buyer. His commitment, support and his patience with me show his professionalism and ability to get the transaction completed. He put a lot of effort into finding a buyer. He replied to all my e-mails and concerns efficiently and promptly. I have been struggling for three years with the home in foreclosure and I had several failed attempts to sell the home with other realtors. Sean showed his leadership and ability by introducing Mr. Boss to me, an attorney who handles short-sales. Within a very short time Sean had a buyer and Mr. Boss had an approval letter from the lender. Soon after, the short-sale was completed and finalized. Sean really helped make a difference in my financial circumstances; furthermore, if Sean didnt help my situation, my home most likely would have gone into foreclosure. I just want to express my greatest thanks to Sean. He definitely accomplished what he promised he would accomplish. I wont hesitate to recommend him to anyone who needs assistance in a real estate transaction. Thank you so much for doing a great job! Regards, Maria Kolodziej

      - Maria Kolodziej
    • Sean came into our house friendly, professional and prepared. I felt confident throughout the whole process , which was short because our home sold a day after listed. I highly recommend him and will use him again if needed.

Sean creates accurate underwriting assumptions and has earned respect as a master of his craft. His easy going, yet driven personality making working with him a breeze. Less
