"We highly endorse Jeff Porter and completely and wholeheartedly give him a 5 STAR review!! We would totally give him 10 stars if allowed by the rating system. Jeff is extremely caring for his clients. He is an absolutely amazing realtor and we consider him a new member of our family. We contacted Jeff from California on potential houses in Cocoa Beach where we plan on retiring to. He was tremendously helpful in locating our perfect home, as well as, ensured our needs and expectations were met through each and every interaction with him. Jeff has outstanding negotiating skills which he delivered a great price on our home and ensured all needed/required projects, big and small, were completed well before we took ownership of our home. If you are looking for a realtor who will always go the extra mile for you and your family, who will provide you with timely updates, who will offer great ideas on how to fix up your house, who will negotiate the best deal for you, who will look out for your best interests…then Jeff Porter is your realtor!"

"Barbara is personable, efficient, professional, knowledgeable, courteous and friendly -- readily available to respond to any question or concern with a calmness that is very comforting. She has the ability to quickly assess and understand your needs and then guide you to the perfect solution. When dealing with her team, it was nice to initially feel as though (and then later believe) that when you were dealing with anyone else on Barbara's team that everyone was on the same page...no hiccups or inconsistencies. In fact, Barbara also helped with an out of town broker referral on the home we were selling......presenting two options her team had researched for us.
I/we wouldn't go or refer anyone anywhere other than Barbara Schluraff and Century21 Ocean anymore!"

She showed us the comps and convinced us to list the property at a price that was higher than we anticipated and sold it at asking price in a very short time!

"We interviewed and considered three successful, highly recommended realtors before making our decision. Barbara's local knowledge and research efforts prior to our listing agreement made the difference in listing with her.
A robust sales campaign was promised and delivered! Century21 Ocean's home photos and narrative sparked solid interest.
Barbara really listened to us and probed to discover and address any unvoiced concerns. She applied thoughtful expertise to frame and resolve sales challenges. I am sure that her interactions with our buyers and their realtor were just as outstanding - and that this was critical to the success of our sale.
We are very happy that she was our realtor."

"We met Jeff at an open house that we had driven 3 hours to get to. We noticed the effort that Jeff put into the signage and comfort of open house guest. We knew that we were very interested in the property and came back past the end of open house and caught Jeff before he left. We ended up making an offer that day and getting the property. Jeff has PERFECT communication skills. He kept us posted at all turns up to the closing. We were doing a reverse 1031 and Jeff made everything run smooth. Jeff was there for us before, during and after the sale. Jeff has provided VAST amounts of information about the area and had a great vendor for everything we needed. I don't normally have alot nice to say about realtors but I have NOTHING to say to Jeff to improve. I could not have imagined a better experience. I not only feel like I have a great realtor in Cocoa Beach but also a new very knowledgeable friend."

"In our first meeting with Jeff Porter we felt he was knowledgeable, eager to meet our needs and help us through the process. Our daughter who had been a realtor for many years met with Jeff and us on that first meeting and she liked him also. We felt we were in good hands.
Jeff suggested an insurance company that gave us good quotes for the condo and an inspector. We have never dealt with anyone in this area for housing.
He promptly answered any questions and found documents we were having trouble getting.
Jeff Porter helped us with the daunting task of getting a mortgage, inspection, and insurance to finalize the purchase."
The Dutchers Cocoa Beach (Buyer) Sat, 23 Feb 2019 06:42:21 +1000
"The point I want to express is that Jeff really listened to me. I wanted a 1 bedroom, facing the ocean, with a balcony and not on the 1st floor, and wanted this around $150,000. I got all I asked for, at a price of $145,500.00. Many agents try to "walk you up in price from where you start, but Jeff was responsive to my requests. As a former agent in N.J., I respect that."

"Massive thanks from across the pond to Barbara and team at Century 21 Ocean. Shortened version of an unbelievable story is that Barbara and her team were engaged blind to sell a property locally for which I held Power Of Attorney on behalf of my Father In law. Being some 4000 miles away and having at the time of the proposed marketing never been to the States I was in the dark. I looked on line for Real Estate Agents locally and was drawn to Century 21 Ocean and Barbara, having corresponded with Barbara on line she answered me quickly, courteously and basically was 100% up front on what she would do and how she and her team would do their best to deliver a sale. We spoke on the telephone and I was convinced this girl was the one that I wanted to engage to sell the property. There was another party involved in the Co ownership of the property in question and based upon local knowledge (allegedly) from this Co Owners friends in the area this individual was wanting to use another Agent to sell the property and try and save a measly 1% on Commission fees. Have to say I was not going to play ball with this as you pay peanuts you get monkeys and I wanted the property marketed by a Company who my gut feeling based on mailings and conversations could deliver.
Next part of the story is that Barbara and her team certainly delivered, the property was sold in what by British time frames was super quick and at a price which was fair and realistic to all parties.
At all times I was kept fully appraised of what was happening what was going to happen and why and before I knew it I was of to the States to meet with Barbara and the Closing Agent to close title.
I can not recommend Barbara and her team highly enough, she delivered without doubt what she said she would and nothing was too much trouble or a problem for her. If you are serious about wanting a property sold State side in this area of Florida, do not waste time and resources looking anywhere else other, go straight to the Girl that can, Barbara Schluraff and the Team at Centry 21 Ocean, they will not let you down. I can not recommend them highly enough and hope that this testimonial gives any potential seller or indeed buyer every assurance that in dealing with Century 21 Ocean you are dealing with people that care and can do. Great service and great result team, many many thanks.
As Tina Turner would holla Barbara and her team are " Simply the Best"
Best wishes for the future"

"I once heard a story of foot-deep holes covering a mountain top path. A man turned to his guide and asked him what they were. The guide informed him that they were ancient animal tracks. Bears have been walking in the same footprints for many generations creating these big divots along the way. The bears knew they would never get lost if the followed the tracks of the bears that traveled before them. This is how my family feels about Barbara and her team. We knew that if we simply followed her lead, her experience, and her advice we would make it safely home. Barbara and her team served my family and our specific needs with great patience, wisdom, excellence, and direction. Whenever I asked my wife her opinion her answer was always the same, "Whatever Barbara thinks"."

"Jeff is an absolutely wonderful professional to work with. He went above and beyond when helping us narrow down properties. We bought a property via internet sight unseen and Jeff went to the properties in which we were interested and took videos as well as video of the surrounding area. He is super friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Jeff even connected us with a mortgage company who could accommodate our need for a quick closing. Everything went much better than expected. He met my husband at the property late in the evening after a long drive upon his arrival to Florida with the keys. Jeff Porter is an exceptional real estate agent who is willing to go out of his way to help his customers find the perfect property and negotiate the perfect price as well as many extras!
Thank you Jeff for making our out of state purchase go quickly and smoothly. I recommend Jeff Porter to anyone looking for a property purchase in Florida!!"

She exceeded all expectations and was able to advertise my house on venues I had no idea about. Barbara and the team at Century 21 Ocean were constantly showing the house and having open house days. We were in almost daily communication (via email) about what was selling and what the market value was.

"We listed our condo in Cocoa Beach with Barbara Schluraff just before Hurricane Irma hit. This made this the hardest and most complicated property sale we have been through. Even though there was no damage to our individual unit there were several issues regarding repairs to the common elements.
Barbara was able to navigate us through all of this and kept us up to date every step of the way and gave us quick feedback after each showing. Barbara even managed various repair jobs for us while we were away. I'm not sure another agent would have gone that far.
A last minute sweep by the title company showed one last hurdle to get through. At one point the closing was to be delayed but Barbara was able to steer the process to a successful close on the same day. It is times like this when you are glad you have the right professional on your side. There is no doubt that Barbara was the right professional on the job. We couldn’t have done this without her."

"Barb Schluraff of Century 21 Ocean was the first and only broker we called when making our 1000+ mile move to Florida. We received a business card of Barb’s from a coworker. Initially we scheduled a phone call with Barb to discuss the specifics of our move and what we could expect in the Merritt Island area of Florida. Barb’s knowledge of the area, real estate and otherwise, was excellent. She shared a lot of great info that was invaluable when making a large move like this with kids and family to consider.
After the initial couple of conversations with Barb we knew that we had made the correct decision. Meeting Denise Ingrid Stanton only confirmed our choice! Our purchase process went excellent thanks to the great support from Barb and Denise.
They made themselves available at all hours of the day and sometimes night to answer our questions ( via texts, emails and calls). Despite some of our questions not being in the realm of a real estate agent's job they gave us due attention and responded in a timely manner with a great level of detail and options.
Though we mainly dealt with Barb and Denise we did meet a couple other very nice and helpful people when we visited the office. The office was also a very warm and inviting space and was an excellent place to wrap up the day or discuss any necessary details.
Denise should be commended for her ability to connect with her clients even our little 8 year old Ava! Her personality made our grueling 7-8 hour days visiting 8-10+ properties fun and exciting. She shared many local stories and landmarks along the way – it was like being on a guided tour! Within a few houses she knew what specifics we were looking for and which we could do without – she was then able to tailor the showings around these details.
All in all, we can confidently say that our family could not have made this large of a move without the help of Barb and Denise as they were able to provide advice and info that made our move, purchase and settling in very smooth! We thank you so much for your help and support.
Theo, Jenna and Ava Bremner"

"Barbara was super patient with us during our search for an investment property in Cocoa Beach. It took several years and many changes in our financial position to finalize a transaction. Thanks for not giving up on us!
Everything was great. The process was communicated to me very well. I always felt like I knew what was happening and what was expected of me even though I was half way across the country.
Barbara Schluraff was amazing to work with!"

"My wife and I used Barbara Schluraff to sell our Cocoa Beach condo when we purchased another condo. Barbara is very professional. She was available whenever needed. Her office also has an excellent support staff. They kept us informed and handled everything perfectly. Barbara knows the local Cocoa Beach real estate market very well. We discussed comparable properties and listed our property for the right price and it sold in less than 1 week, right after the first open house.The entire sales process went very smoothly without any problems."

"Barbara Schluraff is an AMAZING Real Estate agent!
We can’t thank you enough for all the hard work, dedication and the time you spent in selling our home in less than 2 weeks on the market…with multiple offers. Barbara is professional, attentive to detail and has EXCELLENT communication skills along with being very easy to work with. Barbara’s skills and abilities as an effective negotiator are unparalleled. Both parties received what they wanted, creating a win/win for everyone. Barbara is effectively able to maneuver throughout the up’s and down’s of a real estate transaction and has a keen sense on how to bridge the gap between the two sides.
Thank you again Barbara!"

"Michele was recommended to us by my in-laws. From the moment "go" she put her heart and soul into understanding what we needed and finding us a house. We were working with another realtor from a different company when we met Michele, but she won us over due to her willingness to find out any answers to questions we had about a property in a timely manner. Working with Michele is like working with a friend! She gets excited with you as you go through the process. She makes time for you!"

office were professional and efficient thru closing. The selling agent was complimentary at the closing also. Barbara is always
pleasant and professional and deals ethically with all parties. We accomplished the transaction with minimal stress."

"We had our property listed with another agency for 6 months. Michele was able to sell our property in about 2 weeks. Michele worked very aggressively to market our property, have numerous open houses, and bring in clients. Every aspect of the process was handled by Michele with quick communication. Any issue that arose was handled immediately by Michele. My husband and I are grateful to have an agent like Michele to work with during this process. Her professionalism is outstanding. Thank you Michele!"

"We are very appreciative of Jennifer's efforts to help us find a house in a nice neighborhood, with excellent schools, she took all our needs into consideration being that we where not from Florida and knew nothing of the area. She made herself available on our time, even on football Sunday. We are happy with our new house and would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for a new house"

"Once Barbara Schluraff sold and closed my large property on the ocean, I immediately contacted her to purchase a smaller property on the Banana River. This was a very good match as Barbara advised me immediately as she learned of each possible new listing that met my needs. We did not spend time looking at properties that were not an exact match to my stated criteria and Barbara Schluraff did not try to stretch my budget to look at higher properties."
Cheryl Patten, Cocoa Beach Florida (Seller) Wed, 13 Jul 2016 03:33:28 +1000

"Barbara's vast experience, absolute honesty, impeccable integrity and superior professionalism are second to none! She has now assisted me with my second Cape Canaveral/ Cocoa Beach condo purchase in the past four years and I can't imagine buying Brevard County property without her assistance. In 2012, she seamlessly guided me through a challenging short-sale transaction, which is never an easy endeavor. In 2016, we overcame the low inventory hurdles of the current market, as well as some ethically questionable tactics encountered from seller's agents. Bravo and thank you Barbara!"
