Dawn and Kevin were a rare exceptional find as Realtor®s. Every Realtor® wants you to buy something from them. Most of them will try to do what is easiest for them and then on to the next. What makes Dawn and Kevin so different are three attributes that are rare in Realtor®s. They are: A-They really listen to their buyer’s wants and needs. B-They are truly knowledgeable of their market’s inventory. C- They really care. As we searched for the perfect condo and made comments along the way, Dawn and Kevin processed our comments into showing properties that finally got us the perfect one. They did not stop there. They continued not only to closing but even helped us move some of our things into our new condo. As if that was already going above and beyond they are still assisting us with numerous ancillary issues. We would without hesitation recommend them to anyone looking for a property.by Michael M. and Praful P.
Working with Dawn and Kevin of Aqua Realty has been an absolute pleasure. Looking to purchase a new home, selling or renting your home this is the team everyone should work with! The Radtke's are a force to be reckoned with, Their intuitive spirit and knowledge for their job is impeccable. I must say two for the price of one is always a win win situation. My son introduced Dawn and Kevin to myself and husband due to us not being pleased with our prior Realtor® and I must say we will be a fan for life. I cannot thank the Radtke's enough for feeling complete, knowing that at all time, our best interest is their number priority. Working with both of you it shows, this is not about money or closing a deal but due to your passion,commitment and love for your job this will always result in making each and every client 100% happy at the end of the day. Thanks Dawn and Kevin, may God continue to bless you both.by Oliveth S.
We moved to Florida in Dec 2017, in the middle of the holiday season in a insanely difficult housing market for buyers we contacted Dawn and Kevin Radtke at Aqua Realty, initially based on positive online reviews, and couldn't have been more satisfied with the process. While the process of homebuying was much more difficult than we'd imagined, based on the levels of competitiveness, Dawn and Kevin gave us excellent guidance, unflagging availability, and deep knowledge about a wide range of homes that we looked at. Particular high points were helping us extricate ourselves from a seller who ended up behaving in a really sketchy manner after we'd made an offer, and in helping us find ways to make competitive offers in a market where we were regularly outbid by many tens of thousands over the asking prices. I hope we're in our new home for a long time, but if we were to move, I wouldn't hesitate to work with Dawn and Kevin again. Overall, the service that we received from Dawn and Kevin is only equal to the service you would receive at the Ritz Carlton or Four Season Hotels. Their ethics and concern for your well-being seems to be their upmost priority.by Michael M.
Kevin and Dawn Radtke are a great team. They took extremely good care of us from listing to closing! At Open House events, they showed our home as if it was their own with amazing attention to detail. We would not hesitate to have them find a new home or sell a home for us in the future. We definitely recommend Kevin and Dawn Radtke to be your agent!by Bobby and Monica H.
During our house hunt in Florida, we contacted a few realtors to inquire about their listings. Dawn and Kevin stood out from the other agents. When we wanted to continue our search we thought of Dawn and Kevin because of the way they responded to our every need. This was a long process for us to find the perfect house. At no time did we feel that Dawn and Kevin were tired of our questions or requests. In fact they went above and beyond in making sure we were presented with all of the information we needed to make the right choice. Out of all of the professionals we have worked with in securing this house, we give Dawn and Kevin 5 out of 5 stars and would use them again in a heartbeat, and would surely recommend them to our family and friends.

I had worked with two other agents prior to meeting Dawn and Kevin. I wanted to fulfill a lifelong goal of owning a house in Fort Lauderdale. I needed people I could relate to. The previous agents never listened to my wants the way this team did. The other agents seemed more like they were interested in looking at every mirror that we passed and not taking care of the buyer’s needs. Kevin and Dawn seem perfect together. They asked me what I wanted and listened to me. They each fill a specific need and part of the buying process. My experience in working with them, Dawn was a consultant of sorts, educating me on the flood zones and airport flight patterns. She told me about the neighborhoods and what I should expect. She knew more about the properties’ history when we visited homes, more than the listing broker in every case. She knew every work permit and had a history of everything we looked at. Everything. She saved me on more than one occasion from purchasing the wrong property or offering too much money on the property I eventually bought. Kevin on the other hand was like a mini home inspector, a quiet little pit bull bringing up things that I should look at a little closer or pay special attention too. Totally gave me an education on docks and boat lifts. Helped me learn about pools and the Florida climate. Taught me about Northern and Southern exposure. Educated me, even when it wasn’t his responsibility to. Together Dawn, Kevin and I looked at well over 125 homes. They never gave up on me as a buyer and gave me their time every time I called them. I never once felt rushed or unimportant. I can be demanding on what I want. That didn’t faze them in the least. I just knew they were right for me. So with the help of the Radtkes we were eventually able to narrow it down to 2 houses. My wife and I contemplated everything about the houses and the people we met in the houses. When buying a home you have to trust the people that are selling or showing the home. Many times I didn’t trust the agents. They seemed like they thought they were on TV. I don’t get it... I knew I could trust Dawn and Kevin. Professional, knowledgeable and patient. My wife and I went back to NJ and took a chance that the homes would either both still be there or 1 or maybe both would be gone. I am a firm believer in things happen for a reason. A few days later we decided to take one more look and make the offer. Both houses well over $ 1million dollars. One needed some work, one was ready to go. My wife wanted one and I wanted the other. It was crazy! Dawn and Kevin created in short a pro and con list on both houses. Stuff we gave them and stuff they that helped add. This list eventually helped us make a decision... The home we picked is amazing and our neighborhood is great. The neighbors were all so friendly when we met them. I own more than 30 properties now and have sold dozens others. I have worked with brokers, agents, buyer’s brokers, seller’s agents, all of them. I have never felt more comfortable and trusting in any real-estate transaction I have ever done. Well informed about Florida lifestyle (new to me). Dealing with Dawn and Kevin helped me make this deal happen. After the transaction, two days later they stopped by and Kevin helped with the pool and Dawn just did what Dawn does. Together Lillianne (My Wife) and I are proud to call them our first friends in Florida and people we hope to be in our lives for years to come. Thank you so much Dawn and Kevin, I am so happy we found you and you found our Florida dream home.by Mike and Lillianne
