Testimonials

From the outset, we were impressed with the quality and design of the Park Residences of Lido Key. In the end, it was the accessibility and responsiveness of Patrick and Anna that convinced us that we had made the right choice.

When we decided to relocate from Naples to Lido Key, the aesthetic appeal of the building drew us in. From our first meeting with Patrick it was clear that attention to detail, quality, and pride of workmanship was evident.

Working closely with Anna and with Pat through the entire purchase and construction process made buying the Park Residence Condo a joy.  The customer service and attention to detail is unsurpassed as are the quality finishes.  I highly recommend Ocean Real Estate and the project Park Residences of Lido.  Anna knows decorating choices, and managing to the details and Pat is a visionary with a quality first attitude.  I will buy another residence from them in the future based upon this great experience.

“Lido Love”…. We toyed with buying in Florida for years, but were not sure exactly where to land…. and landing @ The Park Residences has been one of the best decisions we ever made.  We have developed several single family homes ourselves, so we understand what it takes to orchestrate all the moving parts and keep your wits about you.  Patrick and Anna were outstanding “pilots” throughout the sometimes bumpy ride, keeping subs on track, solving problems quickly, always being responsive, professional, and positive throughout the process. The Park Residence is a small, high-quality, intimate community now that we are glad to call home.

Throughout the purchase process Patrick and Anna always provided us prompt and courteous service through closing and beyond.

Since living here for six months what we felt from our first meeting with Patrick holds true today, we are proud to call Park Residences our home.

We wish Patrick and his team much deserved future success.

Patrick DiPinto and his team were a pleasure to work with throughout the buying process and afterwards.   They always have our best interest in mind and respond in a timely and comprehensive manner to any questions or concerns we expressed.

My situation was a little different as I already lived on Lido Key, but I was first introduced to Patrick via a relationship I had with the architect, Mark Sultana.  Mark has a tremendous reputation in Sarasota both with the community and with the Sarasota government; I.e. Building department.  As the architect and designer, to maintain that reputation requires integrity for getting the job done and those who associates himself with.

Additionally, I was told that Patrick had a partner (David Hargreaves) whereby they were ‘fully funded.”  To go through the process of design, permitting, determining the contractor, managing the building phase with inspections, funding is of the most important.

Patrick’s group did this impeccably.  There will always be bumps in the road, so to speak, but I am very pleased.  I have been in my condo for a year now, and they have been responsive to any of my needs.  The quality excellent and absolutely I would buy through Patrick again.

Happy 2017 Homeowner – My experience with our Park Residence of Lido Key process was very professional.  The builder and developer were always available to discuss any questions or changes. They tried very hard to please and make sure any problems were addressed ASAP. The finished product was more than we expected and the quality of the finishes and overall look of our Condo was beautiful. It was a good decision to have chosen this particular development.  We are very happy with the outcome and how we were treated.  

Happy 2016 homebuyers from Europe:  Patrick and Anna are one of the best you could hope for when buying a new property from a distance. The quality of the home was truly exceptional and they never got tired of helping us, both before and after closing. It has been wonderful working with them and we give them our highest recommendation.
