Kay & Tom Chesney - Seller & Buyers


Fred and Cathy Boland did a great job selling our home they kept us well informed and they were very knowledgeable. Fred helped us by negotiating on our new condo and did a fantastic job. I would highly recommend him and his wife Cathy to anyone wanting to sell their home or buy a home. 



Dick & Iva McDermott - Buyers 


Thanks to our realtor, Fred Boland, we have purchased ourdream home in Punta Gorda, Florida! We had been searching for over two years,driving Fred crazy in the process. The first two homes that we tried to buywere not exactly right for us, so we ended the contracts. 

Although, we almost decided not to move to Florida, Fred wasalways upbeat and encouraging. All of a sudden, the perfect home came on themarket. We surprised Fred when we made an offer before we had even visited thehome. After seeing the home the next weekend, we knew we had made the rightdecision. 

Fred was right by our side every step of the journey and went the extra mile for us. We are very, very, very happy with our new home! As a bonus, we have the Boland's for new friends.


Mike & Lori Feldman - Seller & Buyer

Fred helped me purchase and sell a condominium in Punta Gorda Florida. I think he did a great job marketing my property. I was kept up to date on everything and I always received a return call or email before the end of the business day. I was an out of town buyer and seller, and Fred went beyond  his realtor duties to help me find a contractor to paint and do minor repairs to my condominium before I moved my belongings in. If I decide to sell or purchase any other real estate in the area in or around Punta Gorda, Fred would definitely be the person to help me


Bob & Patti Griffin - Buyer 


Fred is extremely knowledgeable and listened to us to help us find the home that was right for us.  He was always prepared.  He made us feel like we were his only client and if he wasn't available to answer the phone every time we called he always promptly returned our calls.  Since we were out of  state looking to relocate the process took several months and Fred always kept us informed.  If you work with Fred you will not be disappointed


Dennis Colwell - Buyer

Fred is very personable and detail oriented. I have recommended him consistently to others. My purchase ran into a number of issues due to changing Government regulations at the time. Fred Boland consistently pursued whatever it took to keep the matter moving, calling  bank managers, mortgage  agents, anyone involved to resolve issues, which had turned into months of struggling. I have not known any agents in the past that have shown as much determination as Fred. 


Michelle & Ken Mason - Buyers 


Friendly|Respectful|Efficient|Dedicated-those are the words that come to mind when working with Fred. Recommended tous by a fellow agent, we had high expectations and he exceeded them all. Fromstart to finish he expressed the utmost level of professionalism! 

When our late nightwork schedules made for a late night offer -he and his wife Cathy insisted onproviding us dinner since they knew we hadn't eaten. And regarding the offer,he provided us with extremely wise guidance that created true results. Being inFlorida, there was the hurricane that came on the scene while the owners of thehome were out of town. Fred went above and beyond to make sure the home'sproper storm preparation was underway in their absence. A realtor that achieves results and is alsopleasant to be around......What more could you ask for? 


Donna and Jack Botbyl, Buyers from Denver, Colorado


"It was a pleasure to work with Fred and Cathy Boland as we searched for our dream house in Punta Gorda. They listened, were patient, and didn't give up until we found the right home at the right price. They honestly pointed out the positives and negatives of each area and house and answered all our questions. Cathy was very helpful by giving us a different perspective on each property she visited with us. They were throughly professional, yet fun and easy to work with. We would highly recommend them to family and friends."


Chris & Lisa Peabody, Buyers 


"Fred Boland is the best Realtor in Punta Gorda!

Peter & Beth Silveria, Buyers 

"For anyone looking to buy a house in sunny Florida I recommend you call Fred Boland from ReMax...just bought a house down in Port Charlotte and Fred was my agent. He was informative, knowledgeable, and answered every call I made to him. He showed us many, many houses, some nice, some not so nice and never complained once about it. He followed up on every issue we had and came to the closing and made calls to the selling agent on our behalf. I would recommend Fred to any of my friends and to anyone out there interested in purchasing a home down in sunny Florida. Thanks Fred, you aren't only our agent ,but you are now our friend. Many thanks Peter and Beth Silveria, satisfied home owners”


Bob & Billie Catelli, Buyers 


"Fred, Billie and I want to thank you for everything you had done for us with the purchase of our new home. You are true professional and made our home purchase very smooth since we live 1300 miles away, from making sure our home inspection was preformed on time to doing our walk through for us. You not only made yourself available every time we had a question but you even took time out from your vacation to make sure things got done on time so we would meet our schedule closing date. We couldn't be more happy with our entire home buying experience and that was all because of you. Thank you again for everything and we will recommend you to all our friends looking to buy their Florida dream home like we did."


Barbara Hardin, Seller

"Fred.    Thank you for the wonderful opportunity I had to work with you selling my property out of state. It could have been quite difficult or frustrating, but you kept me informed at all times. It went smoothly and seemed effortless on my part. I would be happy to refer you to anyone needing an excellent realtor. Thank you. "

Barbara Hardin 


David & Joyce Laubach, Buyer


"As Dave and I celebrate our purchase, we want to express appreciation for how instrumental you have been in making the home buying  process flow as smoothly as it has. From the moment we connected with you via the web, and then as we spent time viewing properties with you during our vacation in Punta Gorda, and continuing even now as we navigate the logistics of setting up all the details of home ownership, you have been an unfailing source of high quality information and support.
 Happy as we are with our purchase, there have been moments when the enormity of the decision, and the challenges of being 1,000 miles away, caused anxiety. But then there you have been all through the process, turning what could have been somewhat overwhelming into something manageable. You listen. You leave nothing to chance. You are very generous with your time and expertise. 
 With your knowledge, determination and professionalism, you surely are contributing to a real estate boom for Punta Gorda, a community you obviously love - one that we are happy to become a part of!
Sincerely, Joyce 


Richard & Freda Reynolds, Buyer 


"Just wanted to drop a line and let you know how pleased my wife and I are with recent home purchase.  Through the years we have dealt with many real estate agents but have never come across anyone that measures up to your professionalism.  It is very evident that you truly care about your clients.  When we needed help after the sale and as you know on many occasions, you were always there very willing to assist in our needs.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have done to make us comfortable with our purchase.  I would and will recommend you to anyone that is looking to buy or sell real estate.  Honesty and integrity are the two words that sum up our dealings with you."

Thanks again,

Sincerely, Richard (Dick) Reynolds



Ron & Ann Scott, Buyer


 "Ann and I want you to know how happy we were about our choice to have chosen you as our Realtor to assist us in our search for a new home in Florida.

As you know our home in GA. was under contract and we had limited time to find a new home... Your willingness to comply to our tight schedule and often picky attitude took a lot of pressure off of Ann and I. You succeded in finding us a great home that we are so happy to now own.

In this new era in of mortgage banking you were able to provide us with all the information we required as we navigated through all the necessary procedures. We had our hands full, your service to us as a customer made it so much easier...

Sincerely, Ann & Ron Scott



Bob & Julie Roehrig,  Seller


"SOLD in 87 days.  Fred Boland wrote the most perfect write-up for our home sale.  Not only the write-up was spot on, but the pictures from the professional photographer he hired were impeccable.  One could not resist to book a showing.  By the way, Fred was always available and at your service plus returns phone messages promptly.....no keeping you on edge and waiting.  Couldn’t have asked for more from a real estate agent.  Thank you Fred, you’re a really nice guy and a dedicated hard worker in your profession."

Stewert Dockendorff,  Seller & Buyer

I used Fred to buy a house ... and when it came time to sell, I went to Fred to help me sell it! I find Fred to be extremely fair and forthright. He guided me to the right price for the market. He left no stone unturned and nothing hidden. He explained every step and ensured that everything was done properly. On closing day, he even offered to help load the van! I have another house to sell and there is no question -- Fred will be asked to help me sell it!!

Fred helped us buy the house that we really wanted. He worked hard to make sure the transaction went smoothly and quickly. He was always available to answer questions, and had no problem showing us the house several times when we had even little questions like room measurements, etc. If we ever decided to sell our home, we're calling Fred! Thanks, Fred!

"Fred worked tirelessly to find my husband and I a home here in SW Florida. I have bought and sold a few homes in my lifetime but have never worked with a Realtor that goes above and beyond the way Fred has. I highly recommend the "Fred experience". Not only will you find the perfect home, you will also make a lifetime friend, Thanks Fred!"



John & Patty McFarland,  Seller & Buyer

Hey Fred is a hard worker, trustworthy, uses good judgemnt and always seems to be ahead of the problems that invariably seem to crop up through the selling/buying process.

Opal & Nick Bowling, Buyer

The Best!! I first became aquainted with Fred while searching on line for a home in Florida. We spoke on the phone, I gave Fred mine and my husbands must haves, requirements, and no ways and he just ran with it. It was as if he was inside my head reading my thoughts. From that moment on he hit the ground running. Shortly after speaking with Fred we were in Florida, we had only 2 days to work with and within 24 hours Fred had 6 houses lined up for us to see. He is so focused on your needs and wants. I've not met another as sincere to his trade and neither will you.

Shirley & Steve Reynolds, Friend & Seller

Fred, helped us list and sell our property in Punta Gorda. He provided us with the comparables and we then listed the property. Being a bad market like it is, we were surprized by a quick offer. Being out of state, Fred helped each step of the way with what was necessary in negotiating the offer. The offer was accepted and Fred again helped us as to going to settlement. He kept us informed with what to expect and when the deal was closed. Fred is very knowledgeable of the market and handled our listing and selling with utmost care and concern.

Charlie & Pat McLaughlin, Renter

Art & Jennie Morrow,  Buyer

Fred has been a very able and helpful agent and friend who has provided me with valuable and insightful information about not only selling me real estate, but getting me the right property for my needs. He is willing to be truthful about a property, even when it means potentially discouraging a sale. I feel he is on my side. Thanks, Fred!

Patty Pethel,  Seller

I met Fred through a friend to sell my home. We are now friends. He works hard & does his best for everyone He is very honest and does not play games. I have and will continue to have people call him to buy or sell.

Frank & Tracey Trestka,  Seller

Fred sold our house for top dollar in 2010 during one of the worst real estate markets in history. He did so much more than any other agent would have done. We had professional photographs taken, a beautiful virtual tour, the house was front page on full page of a local real estate magazine, and so many more things that any other realtor wouldn't have done to save money. This was the 4th home we had bought or sold, and Fred was by far the best Realtor we had ever dealt with.

Linda @1st Choice Mortgage,  Real Estate Pro

I have worked with Fred in the past and his dedication to his customers and helping him through the purchase process is an asset to anyone that uses him. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to buy a home.
