They made me feel very comfortable

I’ve already been telling everyone I know how happy I was with the experience I had working with the Paul & Susanna Madden. They made me feel very comfortable in buying my first home…and then selling it for me!

R & L O

Persevered in his efforts to close the sale

One of the highlights of the experience in the Maddens selling our home is we felt we were active participants of the team engaged in the sale of our home. We felt they permitted us to join their team when they listened to us attentively, and then incorporated some of our notions in the development of their overall marketing plan. When it appeared the pending sale would collapse, Paul evinced great personal and professional initiative when he persevered in his efforts to close the sale.
Not only would we gladly engage PAUL & SUSANNA MADDEN to sell our home in the future, we would indeed recommend them to friends and family.


Always available to us

The Maddens were so professional and respectful of our limited time. Always available to us, even with the crazy time zones. We were just amazed at the quality service and responsiveness. We were and continue to be thrilled at home much we love our home and we are grateful PAUL & SUSANNA MADDEN made that possible.

professionalism, personality, courtesy

The best thing about working with Paul & Susanna Madden was their professionalism, personality, courtesy for us and the other home owners, and able to support us in any decision no matter what it may have been without being judgmental or forceful…much more, I could go on forever. We would not think of using anyone else except the Maddens to buy or sell a home. Thank you!

Creative, personable…delightful

The Maddens are knowledgeable, able to work out any “kinks”, creative, personable…delightful! I have already referred my neighbors so the Maddens can sell their homes too. The MADDENS are consummate professionals with invaluable experience and knowledge regarding the market, with realistic expectations and creative solutions. Always reachable and their integrity is refreshing!


Productive, effective and seamless

Working with the Maddens was productive, effective and seamless. They understood our goals, showed us properties that were a fit, and supported us through the offer and closing process, with no problems or hassles. I will us them as my REALTORS every time, and absolutely, I have already referred them and will continue to do so.

Made the process simple.

Working with the Maddens was something that was easy to do. We had never purchased a home before so we had a lot of questions. When our first pick was purchased out from under us they helped us work out the deal on another home in the same area, and it worked out better.
The Maddens are a joy to work with and they made the process simple.

Highly recommend them for your buying/selling needs

True expert – we could not be more pleased with the overall service from Linda and her team – from coordinating services upon the move out of our tenants, recommending and working with a Home Staging Company and working tirelessly to get us through the listing to the home sale. Highly recommend them for your buying/selling needs

He made every effort to accommodate my needs

It was a pleasure meeting you during my home search with Charlie; it looks like you have the foundation of a very effective enterprise. A case in point is my three day visit with Charlie. As it turns out, not only did I get to see ample examples of homes, I also had a personal lesson in Customer Service. Charlie not only took into consideration my housing needs, he also shuttled me to the local elementary schools to capture much needed information in regards to my son. On top of that, he cordially returned with me to a particular home three additional times at my request. I know that these requests cut into his schedule, however he made every effort to accommodate my needs. Outstanding. 

I look forward to acquiring a property through your firm. 

Have a great day!

Honest, conscientious, loyal, hard working, resourceful

Charlie Bodine—so many words can describe him: honest, conscientious, loyal, hard working, resourceful, but most of all friend.  Charlie Bodine has been our realtor for six years.  After moving here from Michigan and not knowing the area, he helped us find the perfect home with all of our wants, needs, wishes and more!!!   Throughout the years, Charlie and his family have become very close friends.  He is a wonderful resource person for everything from real estate, to home repair, to the finest restaurants in town.   After six years in our beautiful home, we decided to follow our dream of living on the beach.  Again, Charlie helped us through the sale of our home and the relocation to our dream.  He is indeed a wonderful realtor—but most of all Friend.
Thanks Charlie from the Bottom of our Hearts

“Coach Charlie” took great care in selling the house of my late father

“Coach Charlie” took great care in selling the house of my late father. He literally handled all aspects of the listing and made it easy for my family and I, to relax and know that the selling of my father’s home would go as smoothly as possible. We handed him the keys and let him go to work! We appreciated all his hard work and would recommend him to anyone in need of real estate services.

To anyone needing the services of a quality real estate agent, it is hard to find one better than Charlie Bodine. As executor of my mother’s estate, I needed help in selling her home. During a difficult time for me, Charlie was professional and warm. He listened carefully as I shared my concerns and questions, and always kept me informed.  Charlie worked hard to market the property in an expert way, and I was quite satisfied when the sale was finalized. I’m sure that the amount of time he has worked & lived in the area and the relationships he has formed over the years helped immensely. I would not hesitate to work with Charlie again, and highly recommend him.

Helped the whole process go smoothly from start to finish

Charlie was always quick to respond to our phone calls or emails. He helped the whole process go smoothly from start to finish. He even hired someone to stage our home and we had 2 offers in the first month! He is an experienced realtor and it shows! He is a true professional.

5 Stars!

5 Stars! I have had the pleasure of using Charlie for over 10 yrs. He is professional, courteous, and thorough. No details were over looked. I have enjoyed working with him and highly recommend him. You will not regret it.

Very fast sale of our home

We were extremely pleased with Linda as our agent. Her professional approach and her knowledge of the market was above and beyond the other agents we interviewed. She gave us excellent advise ( which we took) that resulted in a very fast sale of our home. Not only did she do everything she stated in our initial interview but in our opinion she went beyond our expectations. If you want your home sold by a professional then look no further than Linda, we’re sure glad we had her on our side. You won’t be disappointed either.

Linda made it all go smoothly!

Linda did a great job getting our house sold. We live 3000 miles away and she still made it all go smoothly. Thank you Linda!

Michelle Was Awesome

Michelle was awesome. She listed and sold our house in 2010 and then helped us negotiate an awesome deal on a house in 2011. We were extremely impressed with her entire team. Very professional, knowledgeable and a real pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Michelle and her team.

Michelle Went Above and Beyond

Michelle went above and beyond her work to make sure I make the right choices when purchasing my first home. She genuinely cares about her clients and will point out any problems she sees with the house. She even talked me out on a few offers! Not many realtors will do that. Even when I had problems with my lender, she took the initiative to help me resolve it! I couldn’t ask for a better realtor.

We Consider Her a Valuable Resource

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Lutz, FL.
In a matter of 10 years, we have used Michelle to purchase 2 homes and sell another. We wouldn’t consider using anyone else. We always felt that she had our best interests at heart. Michelle always gives great advice and has tremendous insight on the market. Many times if my wife and I could not decide on something we would use Michelle’s input as the deciding factor. We consider her a valuable resource and a friend in the industry.

Michelle is Very Experienced

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Lutz, FL.
Michelle is very experienced and guided us through the process of selling our old home and finding a new one. Within a few weeks we had an offer on our old house and were able to enter a contract on a new house. She is extremely dedicated and was a huge advocate for us. We had issues at the eleventh hour with our closing of the new house and Michelle went to bat for us and held firm. In the end we were able to close on our new house without issue. We have already recommended her to others.
Thank you Michelle for being with us every step of the way!

She Made the Process a Lot of Fun

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Tampa, FL.
As a first time homebuyer it was important to me that I found a realtor who had my best interest, someone I could trust and would provide me with all the knowledge I needed to be a homeowner. Michelle, was all of the above and more. She gained my trust the fist time I spoke with her via phone. My gut told me that she was the one I needed to lead me on this journey.
Anytime I had a question or needed help, she was there. Michelle is truly dedicated to her craft. Most realtors just want you to buy “a” house. Michelle wants you to buy “thee”house. Many times we would go to houses and she would say “you can keep looking, but I’m not letting you buy this house.” She knew what properties would be a good investment and which ones were bad and always had facts and reason to back it up. That was important to me.
At one point during the process I came across a lender that didn’t have my best interest. He was trying to take advantage of me due to my lack of knowledge on the loan process. He had prepared documents for the wrong type of loan, but insisted that I go that route because it would be better for me, all because he didn’t want to take the time to do his work over again. Because of Michelle’s vast knowledge she was able to see what this guy was trying to pull over on me. He was shady, lazy and had a temper. She intervened and refused to let this guy take advantage of me. In a pinch she got me in contact with a lender that couldn’t have been any nicer and easy to work with.
Not only did Michelle get us into a house we are excited to call home, she made the process a lot of fun. I can’t thank her enough.

Makes the Process of Purchasing a Home so Much Fun

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Bayshore Beautiful, Tampa, FL.
I had the pleasure of working with Michelle exactly a year ago when I was in the process of buying my first home. She was absolutely incredible! I would never have been able to follow through without her help and guidance. She has a thorough understanding of the industry and the market and taught me so much throughout the process. She always made me feel like a priority and I don’t know how she managed to do that while also juggling several other clients. Michelle is professsional but also makes the process of purchasing a home so much fun.
