David and Mary are wonderful realtors! They get to know their clients, ask the right questions and find homes in the clients' preferred areas.
Next home we buy we wouldn't consider going to anyone else, either to sell our current home or buy a different one.

David's best asset is that he is TENACIOUS! Several times during the process of selling a FL. condo (not an easy task) David somehow kept the difficult negotiations going forward when it seemed futile. HE DID IT!!

Dear Mary,

We , Ron and Gail Hedy, would like you to know how much we appreciated working with you on our Cape Coral, Florida home purchase.  You went out of your way many, many times for us and we thank-you for making this home purchase, 2,100 miles away, seem so easy.  You, indeed, have become our friend as well as our Real Estate agent.  I have a very high level of expectations on all levels of professionalism and you have exceeded all ot them.

We have recommended you to many friends and family on potential home purchases in Florida, and will continue to do so.  We needed your help so often and you never let us down.  Please let us know if we can ever repay your kindness, thoughtfullness and overall friendship.

We have purchased many homes in our lives, but no agent has ever done all that you have done. You are, by far, the best! Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts.

Sincerely,

Ron and Gail Hedy

Mary Ray is an excellent agent. She goes above and beyond for her clients. We have bought two houses from her and could not have been more pleased with the transactions. Her team also sold a house for us in less than a month. We not only found the best realtor in Cape Coral, we made a new friend

Just wanted to write and give Our Realtor, Mary Sporleder-Ray, our sincere thanks and let her brokerage, Gulf Coast Realty Network, know what a professional and diligent Realtor they have in Mary! 

We just sold and closed on our waterfront property. Mary helped us locate and buy this property. We were so pleased with Mary on the purchase of our waterfront property, that without hesitation when it came time to sell our home, we also listed the home with Mary to sell it for us. 

Mary listed our property and did everything for us. We sold the home in a very short time and for top dollar. I can honestly say of all the real estate deals we have done over the years buying and selling homes, I have never been represented by anyone who was more detailed, professional or who worked harder to help us with the purchase and sale of our home. 

Should you ever desire a recommendation concerning Gulf Coast Realty Network, Inc. and Mary Sporleder-Ray do not hesitate to call. 

Best regards, 

Jim and Karen

David is a saint! My husband is very difficult to please. We looked at so many houses, it was making me dizzy! He would email us pics and videos so we could plan which houses to tour on our trips to Cape Coral. I can not believe how patient and tenacious David was.......David very skillfully suggested that perhaps we would like to look at some lots and get some pricing on building. David quickly found us 3 lots and that was the key! We were off and running. David also worked with us to find the ideal builder for us and was with us every step of the way. We live in Baltimore so David would check on the progress of our house whenever we were not in town. Could not have asked for a better Agent! We would not hesitate to refer anyone to David for his professional and knowledgeable service. He surely goes above and beyond!

Dear David Sporleder,

Working as a Mortgage Broker, I deal with good and bad Realtors.....bad ones almost on a daily basis. When my sister was moving 300 miles away, I was somewhat concerned since I wouldn't be able to recommend a good realtor. She started looking at houses and it wasn't long before she found the one for her. Using David's services she made an offer. Once the property was picked out, I started working with David on the transaction. 

With the complexity of Real Estate transactions and the number of people involved, communication and staying on top of things is IMPORTANT! It didn't take long for me to notice David's efforts. He stayed on top of things the entire transaction. Near the end there were a couple bumps (nothing that was his fault) right before the closing. He continued to stay on top of things and working together, we were able to clear the last hurdles. 

Working with David was an enjoyable expierence. He was up front, knew what was needed to get done, and did what was necessary to get it done. He kept the lines of communication open and let me know when he needed something. David remained professional throughout the transaction. David was everything I would want in a Real Estate Agent. If you're moving to the Ft. Myers area, I HIGHLY recommend his services. Thanks again David! 

Sincerely,

Robert Burns, Licensed Mortgage Broker

After having a not-so-great experience with a previous realtor, Mary and David were referred to us by a friend and were such a breath of fresh air. They are such a great team, balancing each other and providing honest recommendations and opinions to us as buyers. They could have tried to put us in a house above our budget, but they really focused on our priorities and persevered until we found the perfect home that checked all the boxes, and it was perfectly affordable. They even showed up on move-in day to help us because they knew we were all alone! They continue to be great friends and are truly amazing and honest business people. I can't recommend them highly enough!

David knew the market, and listened to our needs and wants and was able to find the perfect retirement home for us in Cape Coral. It was actually the very first home we viewed ( although he was able to show us several) in a very short time. He is so easy to work with and flexible. Knowing the area so well, he was able to point out things that we would not have considered in our purchase, ie Fresh water canals vs. saltwater, boating access and bridges, location to area restaurants, shopping, banks. He expedited our closing and made the process extremely easy. We certainly would recommend David to anyone looking to purchase property in or around the Gulf Coast area.

Chuck & Tina

Absolutely amazing!! Mary and David worked with us from out of state. They went out of there way to get everything done for us without ever meeting us. They did the walk through of houses that I saw and would send me pics and video. Extremely helpfully in everything we needed!! Even measured to make sure a pool would fit. I would recommend them to everyone. Thanks again Mary and David

My wife and I recently moved from PA to Cape Coral in June/2016. My wife found Dave on the internet and he worked with her for months sending us affordable listings well before our settlement date in PA. We were under time constraints in May /2016 when we went to cape coral and Dave and Mary showed us numerous properties. They treated us like MILLION dollar clients even though we did not purchase a million dollar home. Mary negotiated the selling price down to get us a beautiful home within our price range. Dave and Mary were professional at all times and returned all of our phone calls within the hour. Dave made sure that all contracts and Docusigns were completed in a timely manner. Since we lived in PA, Dave represented us at the Home inspection. He was at the title office BEFORE us on settlement day. Mary even recommended affordable local contractors that she personally used for a home project.

My wife and I would recommend Dave and Mary to anyone looking to move to the cape coral area because they treated us like family through the entire process of buying a home from out of state.

To whom it may concern. 

Deciding to buy property in the Cape Coral and Ft Myers area we asked our friends who live in the area about finding an honest, knowledgeable and reliable Realtor. We immediately were told by quite a few of our acquaintances about the Sporleder-Ray team. Upon our friends advice we contacted them via email on their web site. 

They responded to our inquiries and continued over the next several weeks to send us updated info on the area and properties that met our criteria. Knowing our lack of knowledge with the Cape Coral and Ft Myers area, they went out of their way to show us all that the areas had to offer: Entertainment, schools, shopping boating local attractions and businesses. Also we were totally unfamiliar with Construction and quality of the homes and condos in the areas. They  were an immense help in pointing out the pros and cons of each. 

After much exploring of both Ft Myers and Cape coral with their tireless help which included most of the weekend and evenings as well. We wrote contracts on both a personal home and an investment condo. 

Much to our surprise they didn't stop at getting a signed contract, they walked us thru and stayed by our side during every step of the process: Home inspections, talking to our mortgage company also the title company basically handling all the details and making the process of our home purchase smooth and problem free. They kept us informed every step of the way this also included updated pictures of the building of our condo. 

It didn't just stop there. After both of our new homes had closed and the deal was done, they went out of their way to help us with movers and contacting all the companies and business we needed to get our homes going. 

We would highly recommend  Mary Ray of the Sporleder-Ray group to anyone looking to buy a home in SW Florida. 

We feel that they treated us like we were family. Sincere and caring and watching every detail to make sure our home buying process was a smooth and easy one.

Working with David had was a pleasure. I am a very difficult person and I'm very opinionated on what I want. David was patient and was able to answer every question I had. My husband and I were able to find a home that it had everything on our checklist. I would highly recommend David
