"Thanks to Covid, our most recent move (involving the need to sell a home and buy another) turned into an 18-month long process- a GREAT one- thanks to the team at Wemert Group. Tony Galarza was incredible in getting our home listed at the start of the pandemic. Beautiful photos, well-written listing, and tons of behind-the-scenes effort to get us top dollar… and then turning on a dime with patience, grace, and understanding when we decided to show a home in that great unknown of March 2020 was not for us. We relisted in Winter 2021 and had the house sold in no time flat. For any hiccups, Tony was on top of it. From there, Jennifer Rigsby picked up the baton, to help us navigate what of course became a frenzied and cutthroat market for buyers. No pressure. Endless Patience. In our first meeting, she asked important questions about our wants and needs, likes and dislikes. All agents do. But NOT all agents remember those notes- even months later. Much less remind YOU – mid frenzy- what you want and don’t want and dissuade you from making the wrong choice in a panic. Jennifer was so much more than a mere Buyer’s Agent – she was like having your best friend and most trusted advisor right alongside you. When the right house finally did come along, she was there to show the home first thing in the morning and to help us package a deal quickly and correctly – so we didn’t miss out on a great place. We LOVE our new home – and that’s due, in no small part, to Jennifer’s guidance in helping us locate, id and land the perfect home for us. Both Tony and Jennifer are supported by an amazing team – Adriana, Patrice, and even Jennifer Wemert herself – all did their parts to ensure a smooth process to close on both the buy and sell sides. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to choose the Wemert Group."
"I can't say enough good things about working with Cyndi Stein and Patrice at Wemert Group Realty. I first worked with Cyndi and Patrice in 2016 when planning a cross-country move from the midwest to Florida. Not only did Cyndi find us the perfect home, but she gave us valuable tips on how things work in Florida... things that my husband and I would not have known on our own. We love Cyndi so much that when it was time for our daughter to buy her first home last year, we recommended Cyndi and her colleague Jennifer. Cyndi, Jennifer, and the Wemert team did a great job of finding the right condo for our daughter and helping her through her first home purchase with a tricky financing arrangement. Two generations of our family highly recommend Cyndi, Jennifer, Patrice, and the Wemert team!"
"Jen Rigsby and Patrice did an excellent job getting us into our home in Orlando. Always attentive, great communication and zero pressure led to us being 100% satisfied. Thank you both so much!"
"Jennifer Rigsby and Patrice were mindful of our needs, budget, and time. They are very knowledgeable about the area and have contacts to help with any moving or home repair needs. They are good at negotiations and made sure that we got the best deal possible. We enjoyed working with them and if we need realty services again will use them."
"Cyndi Stein has been a friend since childhood, so it was a no-brainer to use her as our realtor when bought our most recent home. We got a bonus of Jennifer Rigsby as our second realtor at that time. Cyndi’s teammate/Wemate is now Patrice and she is AMAZING! One of the reasons it’s so easy to recommend Cyndi is the responsiveness we received from Cyndi, Jennifer, and the entire Wemert team. Cyndi is a fun, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable realtor, she is also a bulldog in negotiations. She always looks out for her client's best interest and because of that, we were able to buy the “perfect house,” in the “perfect neighborhood,” with the exact layout we wanted for our family. Every person that my husband and I have referred to her has been equally happy with the results, so it’s not just our friendship over the years, it’s truly her professionalism. Cyndi & Jen were the most fun realtors I’ve ever used which was the cherry on top! When you use Wemert Realty Group you truly become family. 6 years later we still get invites (outside of COVID) to their Wemert Events and we still love going to see the entire team, all who are still there. Thank you, Cindy, Jen, and all of the Wemert Family for all you do!!!"
"My family and I have purchased two houses through Wemert Group, and I must say, our experience has been amazing both times...so much so, we'd use them for a third and beyond. Cyndi Stein and Patrice were both extremely helpful in supporting our needs and guiding us along the way. They were responsive and always on top of communication. It is truly a pleasure working with them. Shout out to Jennifer Rigsby as well. She's been very helpful in showings and has ways been willing to ask questions and really dive into our needs. Kudos to the team at Wemert Group!"
"Amazing customer service! Jennifer, Patrice, and Cindy, outstanding performance; make me feel special, understood all my needs and expectations! Above and beyond! Speechless! 100% satisfaction!"
"I’m so pleased with the experience I’ve had with Wemert Realty especially with my amazing agents Jen Rigsby, Debbie Long, and Michelle Moon! Thanks, ladies for all your help and expertise!"
"I’ve worked with Wemert Group Realty and Jen Rigsby specifically for two purchases and one sale now and I wouldn’t work with anyone else! They are very professional and friendly (and have the best photographer ever). They are on top of everything throughout the whole process and make sure you know things are being taken care of for you. Jen is patient and willing to meet you for showings around the clock 🙂 Overall, I would recommend working with Jen if you get the chance!"
"Jennifer Rigsby and Patrice Donnellon made this process easy and simple. They did an excellent job guiding us along the way and managing expectations and timelines. We will certainly be using Jen and Patrice again in the future and appreciate the work they did."
"My real estate agent, Jennifer Rigsby, and her teammate, Patrice Donnellon were quite a team. They worked to get me the best deal possible with little stress to me and to my tenant. Their professionalism and work ethic made me happy that I chose them. I certainly will call on them again to buy or sell a property."
"We were experiencing frustration with our previous realtor and mentioned that to Cyndi and Jen. They asked to take over and we let them take the wheel. We were blown away by their initiative and professionalism. They had us in our dream home within a month! They were unafraid of asking for what we wanted, on our behalf, with confidence and composure. I would 100% recommend them to anyone in the market for a home. Wemert has continued to blow us away even after we purchased our home with perks for friends and family. This is truly a company with their clients at the top of the list!"
"Jen Rigsby was an awesome realtor who honestly shared the pros and cons of different properties but never pressured us. She was very responsive and Patrice helped close us with all the paperwork needed for a successful closing! You will want to work with Wemert when buying or selling your house. We have done both and have a great experience each time!"
"I want to start thanking Jennifer Rigsby for helping me through all the process of buying my first home and for answering all my questions, also want to thank Patrice and Wemert Group Realty for their dedication and professionalism. Jennifer Rigsby went above and beyond to make sure I got the home I like, I highly recommend her. Jennifer Rigsby guided me through the whole process and was always available whenever I had a question or concern. Jennifer Rigsby and Wemert Group Realty Team made sure all the processes went thru smoothly and easily. They treat you like fam, I will definitely recommend Wemert Group Realty to anyone. You won’t regret it. Thank You!!!!!"
"I just closed on my first home and worked with Jen and Cyndi. It is an extremely competitive market for buyers, which led me to feel slightly discouraged at times. Jen was so patient And understanding through the entire process. She was very knowledgeable about all of the areas we were looking at and was very honest if I didn’t know as much about the neighborhood. Her positivity and reassurance are what kept me going through the process, and It resulted in me finding the perfect first home. Thank you to Jen, Cyndi, and Patrice for helping me every step of the way. I can’t wait to work with you all again in the future."
"I thought finding a home during this pandemic was going to be almost impossible. Jennifer made this process go both smoothly and quickly. She was very informative, efficient, and professional. I knew that I could trust her with helping me make one of the most important decisions I needed to make. She walked me through the entire process explaining every step of the way making sure I understood and was comfortable with the decisions I was making. Jennifer knew exactly what I was looking for and always sent potential properties she knew fit my style and my price range. She was always available and had great communication during the entire process. I would recommend her and her team to anyone without hesitation."
"My wife and I worked with Jen and Cyndi - we always appreciated their honesty, even when Jen reminded us we weren't getting any younger and might prefer a one-story home (we're in our 60s) They helped us find our dream home in Clermont and we couldn't imagine living anywhere else. Jen and Cyndi were with us every step of the way and their transaction coordinator, Patrice, was top-notch - always on top of all the deadlines and reminding us of things we hadn't even thought of! We highly recommend the Wemert Group Realty team and even more, highly recommend Jen and Cyndi - even a year and a half later they still check in with us and send us fun messages!"
"I thought buying a house would be a long process that would come with a lot of frustration and chaos. That may be the case for some but not for those who work with Cyndi Stein and her team at Wemert. Not only did Cyndi get us the house we fell in love with - and no easy feat - she got us an exclusive showing the day before it would have hit the market - but every step of the way with Cyndi, Jen, and Patrice - from helping us find the right lender to closing - was so organized, which made everything go smoothly. Months later we still feel so grateful to Cyndi and Wemert for finding us our home and getting us in it with such ease."
"Cyndi Stein and Jen Pokallus have been our real estate agents since 2018, and they have helped us through two home purchases over our time with them, our first after getting married, and the other to help one of our mothers to move down to Florida. They are such a great team, working together to find and show us houses while drawing up numbers as soon as we saw something we liked. They are awesome to have as your crew in a competitive market! Aside from their real estate skills, working with them is fun! Getting a hold of them is super easy, and they were always responsive to any questions or issues we had. I will always recommend them to anyone needing an agent in the Orlando area!"
"We used Wemert Group Realty, specifically Cyndi Stein and Jennifer Rigsby, to help us find and purchase our first home. I can not say enough amazing things about them. They found our dream home that ticked all of our boxes, and then a few more boxes that we had not even considered, faster than I thought possible. As a first-time homebuyer, I had a ton of questions and concerns and they were always patient and incredibly responsive walking me through the entire process. When it came time to make the big purchase they referred us to a lender who was able to offer us a much more competitive rate than any other lender we had spoken with previously. Cyndi and Jennifer saved us THOUSANDS of dollars during the process by negotiating with the seller on things we had not noticed or thought about. I would absolutely recommend Cyndi Stein and Jennifer Rigsby, and the entire Wemert team who assisted us, to anyone looking to buy or sell their next home."
"I used Wemert Realty earlier this year for help with purchasing a new construction home. If you get the chance, work with Jennifer "The Strong Arm" Rigsby. I could not believe the things she accomplished. No joke, she is the best Realtor you can find in the Orlando area and made our home buying experience auspicious and a piece of cake."
"Cyndi Stein and Jennifer Rigsby of Wemert Group Realty helped me buy my first home, as I decided to make the transition from apartment life to owning a condo. Their knowledge of the ins and outs of home buy helped me to feel a lot less stressed and saved me a lot of money as they advised me how to negotiate for a lower price without risking the seller choosing another offer. Wemert made my dream first home a reality!"
"Jennifer is an amazing person. She picked up on exactly what I was looking for and found a great home for me. She is now my go-to person for my real estate needs. Highly recommend!"
I worked with The Wemert Group to purchase and sell my first home (with Jen Rigsby and Corey Welch, respectively) and each experience was fantastic. Their enthusiasm and willingness to help were always appreciated and made me feel that they were equally as invested in achieving my goals. Selling my home was particularly interesting because it occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic which threw some curveballs our way and required some pivoting, but Corey and Jennifer Sambolin were with me every step of the way. And at the 11th hour when the sale almost fell apart, Corey and team went above and beyond to ensure it went through -- and I'm sure not all realtors would have done what they did. I also want to thank Cyndi Stein, Sarah Zack, and Javed Alli who were of great assistance. I will turn to The Wemert Group again and I highly recommend them.
Have you always lived in Central Florida? Where do you consider ‘home?’
I was born and raised in Central Florida! I have lived in different areas of town, but the Apopka area has always been my home. In fact, I have just boomeranged back to the Apopka part of town.
Where does your inspiration come from when it comes to selling real estate?
I have a huge love for helping others and supporting people. Just being able to see the looks on my client’s faces or even hearing the excitement on the other end of the phone, when I tell them that the offer was indeed accepted is only beat by the looks of excitement that I get to see at the closing table.
What are your favorite things about living in Central Florida?
My favorite things about living in the wonderful Central Florida area is having the opportunity to experience and explore all my favorite little towns, I also absolutely love being able to find new amazing places to eat, I enjoy all of the great outdoor activities available in the community. It is also great to be surrounded by all of my family and friends!
What are your hobbies outside of doing real estate?
I enjoy hanging out with my dogs, watching NASCAR, and finding the best places for food and drinks in the Central Florida area one stop at a time!
What are some aspects of real estate that you have learned that has surprised you about real estate after becoming an agent?
I have learned that real estate doesn’t ever stop! From the outside looking in, one house sale sounds like a small thing to some people, but what people don’t realize is that you don’t see all the hours spent into making sure that one transaction gets to the finish line as easily and as quickly as possible. There are is a lot that goes into behind the scenes.
What, if anything, would you want your future clients to know about you?
I would say that I will work tirelessly until my clients are happily smiling at the closing table.
