Active Agent Realty, LLC Testimonials

We were so fortunate to have found John Maisel when we moved to Florida.

As our Realtor, he helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He was patient as we traveled all across Central Florida to look at homes over several months and cautioned us about making unreasonable offers when we fell too quickly for overpriced homes. In short, he was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with John was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs for our family than he was on closing a deal. We would definitely recommend him to anyone.


Great response.

I contacted John to list an unoccupied piece of property in Citrus County, FL. The listing, marketing, and sale were completed quickly. I'm very satisfied.


Initially, I was going to rent my home with Active Agent Realty, however, I was having significant problems switching to renters insurance due to having filed and repaired a sinkhole claim 12 years prior.

I went to John expecting to have difficulty selling but within 2 weeks a buyer was found, negotiated, and closing date set. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and professional in every way. I highly recommend him!

David was fantastic to work with!

Super smooth process, knowledgeable, and just an all-around great professional. House sold quickly with no issues or fuss. Thanks again for your help.


Steve [Watson] is a great agent, easy to work with, went out of his direct responsibilities to provide additional help in getting settled.

He recommended local craftsmen and professional services which were excellent. Helped in many many ways


John has been our go-to realty resource ever since we started, over 2 years ago, getting serious about moving to Florida.

During that first visit he set up several showings of houses that met our criteria. Since then, he has sent us email updates several times each week to keep us informed of what's on the market. When we sold our home in RI in March and came down to FL, again John took us under his wing. 1 He showed us many great houses, patiently answered our numerous questions and expertly guided us through the house buying process. He has always been just a phone call away, generous with his time and wise advice. We wholeheartedly recommend John Maisel to be your go-to realty resource.

David in a nutshell is AMAZING.

This was my first time buying a home, so of course I was extremely nervous and didn’t know much. David went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable throughout the process and explained to me any and all questions I had. He was available whenever I needed (day or night) and was quick to get things done. I even closed a week earlier than planned! I can’t thank him enough for all that he did and for making my first home purchase a wonderful experience!


David was knowledgeable and provided great customer service to us.

He was quick to respond to any questions and gave trustworthy guidance through the selling process. Also gave a good reference for repairs that were made timely so we could easily complete these tasks. We sold the home in only 2 weeks for full asking price. Very satisfied with the experience of using this realtor.

Kept us informed about new listings that we would be interested in, that were in our price range.

Was available to quickly answer questions. Was very professional and easy to work with in purchasing our home before and after the sale.


John and his staff made the sale of my home as effortless as possible for me!

I appreciated his professionalism as he touched base with me regularly and answered my questions.


I've had the distinct pleasure of working with John Maisel as my realtor.

His professionalism and dedication to helping me get the house in selling order and paperwork completed in a timely manner was done in a patient and clear manner. His ability in listening to what I expected in the sale of this villa and clarifying issues in an easy to understand manner, made this all doable. He responded to all texts, emails, and messages in short order. When asked, he even contacted my son by phone for more clarification for me. I truly felt he always had MY best interest in mind. I cannot say more clearly, that he truly was someone who made my life easier at a very difficult time for me. THANK YOU JOHN!

David was amazing to work with!

He made himself available to us whenever we needed him, he was professional yet easy to talk to and explained things in the simplest of terms. He really looked out for us and advises to do no less or no more than what he would do if it were himself purchasing the home. I was very impressed with David and was so thankful to have him through our journey of becoming homeowners! So David if you read this, thank you so much for everything you did for us and I would absolutely recommend you to everyone I know!

David was an amazing agent to work with.

The communication was excellent every step of the way. I would highly recommend him to sell any property or home. His experience and expertise are top-notch.


John handled two properties in the last 6 months.

The first was a purchase, and this home was sold through John. John and his team were extremely helpful in preparing and getting the home on the market, and through Johns hard work the property sold in days. Outstanding agent and would highly recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling.
