My husband found For Buyers Only Realty when he was researching realtors in the Saint Augustine area. I was a little skeptical at first because I had never heard about this type of real estate service. I thought, why would an agency only want to represent buyers? The answer, as I have learned, is the desire of this dynamic duo to provide a truly customer centered excellent home buying experience! Throughout the entire process Dwight and Sharon focused on our goals and preferences. Helping us find our dream home was only the beginning. They walked us through every detail of the sale, answering all of our questions. Because we summer in Maine, Dwight made himself available during the home inspection and worked with the builder to ensure every detail was perfect! We now have a beautiful new home and 2 new friends! Five stars represent excellent communication, excellent follow through, tireless dedication, outstanding attention to detail, and exceptional subject matter experts! Thank you Dwight and Sharon, you are both awesome!
I am not sure if five star in enough for this dynamic duo. I entered into the real estate game with not much knowledge as I was a beginner in most things real estate. I did a lot of research and found Sharon and Dwight as many of you are now..on line. I will admit I was skeptical from all the glowing reviews..no one is that good right? Fake news?
Negative..They are that good! It struck a chord with me that they only represent buyers, hence the name, no conflict of interest. They were very knowledgeable in the area and guided me effortlessly through one of the biggest financial decisions of my life.
Sharon made sure the numbers were in order while Dwight went as far as trailing behind the home inspectors so he could explain what they found in dummy terms to me, which I needed. I am currently sitting backyard, lake front relaxing at my new home and reflecting how I got here. It is in no small part thanks to Sharon and Dwight, whom I'm proud to call my realtors and my new friends.
If you're in the market you can do NO BETTER than For Buyers Only Realty of St. Augustine. Do yourself a favor and hire these people, you won't regret it
We started working with Dwight and Sharon almost two years ago (2016), We live out of state (Vermont) and over this time we have visited St Augustine a couple of times and have been able to view numerous communities and homes of various builders. Sharon and Dwight always made time for us. Most of these trips were learning and information gathering missions. Dwight took us around and we were able to learn so much, about various communities and builders, proximity to services, shopping and transportation. They really provide "a full service", service and we are grateful for that. Our most recent trip, June of this year we settled on a community, builder, home and lot. We are so excited about our future home and Dwight and Sharon were able to help us make this happen. Dwight's construction knowledge and Sharon's instinctive ability to coordinate and maintain the buying process create a team that goes well beyond what words could tell. Dwight will be monitoring the build process, while working with the builder to make sure it is right when it is complete. We completely trust Dwight and Sharon's ability to help us create the perfect retirement home. We highly recommend the dynamic duo !!
We called Sharon and Dwight about 8 months ago after watching a sales video on a new home. We where that impressed with them. We where at the time living in New York and not be able to travel back and forth to Florida. Sharon and Dwight knew exactly what we where looking for. They took time out and did several road trips for us. Each search of a new home was enhanced with a video. It was an awesome combination of salesman ship and level of professionalism . They did find the perfect home for us and helped us thru the complete process. Looking in on the new home to make sure the work from several walk thru's was completed. We are now moved into our new homeâ¦What an awesome experience !!! Its stressful enough trying to sell and move out of your old home. Thank you so much Sharon and Dwight for sharing with us on our stress free new home purchase.
WOWâ¦.new home and new friends !!!!!!

We found Sharon and Dwight after an extensive search for realtors in St. Augustine. Let me clarify - they are NOT realtor agents but Buyer Agents which we learned is a big difference! We were moving from Massachusetts to St. Augustine. Having never been to St. Augustine, Dwight spent the week showing us around (doing a recon-tour) to help us become familiar with the area. They spent the time to learn about us and our likes and dislikes before showing us new construction homes and resale homes as we were undecided. Sharon even puppy sat our Havanese who became friends with their Havanese while we did our search. It was a pleasure getting to know them and learning the area!
In the end, we found a house we liked but weren't able to fly down to see it. Dwight did a complete personal video tour of the home, pointing out what we would like and may not like about the home. He was honest, thorough, informative and extremely helpful. Both he and Sharon provided us up to the minute updates on the process and stayed in communication the entire time we worked with them. This was key, as they indicated in the beginning. So much so, we bought the home because of the detailed video, the information they were able to gather on the home and their expertise. They were even able to negotiate appliances for us that initially the homeowners were not planning to leave us. Dwight and Sharon work together to provide you the very best quality of service, knowledge, attention to detail, ability to question others when necessary and the local expertise we needed! We quickly learned to trust them... which for us northerners, probably doesn't come easy.
Thank you Dwight and Sharon for being so honest, trustworthy and knowledgeable. It was because of the 2 of them that we were able to be okay with buying our home without first walking into it. If you are seeking to buy a home in the this area, they are who you should choose! We highly recommend them and can't say enough about how wonderful they both are (and their dog Teddy!)! We hope to keep them now as friends!
We first discovered Dwight and Sharon via their many exceptional, informative YouTube videos of St. Johns County communities. Retiring from the Chicago suburbs, we needed a local advocate with the REAL expertise to advance our dream of moving to St. Augustine.
From the very beginning, they were always generous with their time and made us feel like they were the only client they were working with.
On our househunting trips, Dwight spent several days driving us around to acquaint us with both the community and our housing options. Throughout the process, they were mindful of our price point and the parameters for the search.
They are dialed-in to several local builders and saved us THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS on closing costs and by having the builder pony up for several extras (e.g., washer/dryer, fence, fans).
In sum, Allyson and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dwight and Sharon as buyer agents. They are extremely friendly and easy to work with. It is a no-brainer; their services are free to buyers and they will save you big bucks! You will be glad you make that phone call or send that initial email to them!
We found Sharon and Dwight on a search for buyer's agents in St Augustine and they helped us find our second home there. After chatting on the phone for about an hour learning more about them, they asked us to come to St Augustine so they could give us a "recon tour" and what a tour it was. Their knowledge of the local real estate market is amazing. They truly care about what they do and it shows. Thanks to them we can't wait to get back down to Florida and spend time in our new beach home. We highly recommend our new Florida friends Dwight and Sharon.
Sharon and Dwight provided superior service and were a pleasure to work to find a home for us within specific parameters to be near family already living in St. Johnâs. They communicate extremely well not only with us, but our mortgage broker and others involved in the process. Even after closing they have touched based with us and provided helpful information. They truly are the âgold standardâ For Buyers Only.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND Sharon and Dwight to anyone looking for a home. Absolutely OUTSTANDING!!! Miracle workers when it came to finding our new home in Saint Augustine and negotiating on our behalf. We recently moved from Virginia and had to handle the house hunting and negotiating the process long distance. Sharon and Dwight were there every step of the way making the process easy and smooth. The professionalism and dedication they have to their clients far exceed the industry standards. Even after you close on your new dream home, Sharon and Dwight continue to be there for you to make sure your entire transition to the community goes smooth.
We live & work 3 hours away and were buying a vacation home (to which we will eventually retire). We are posting this review because thatâs how we found Dwight & Sharon and they were SPECTACULAR! If you have never worked with a âbuyers onlyâ agent, you should. And it is hard to imagine that you could find better than Dwight & Sharon. We had visited St. Augustine frequently and were sure that we wanted something easily accessible to Old Town. Dwight & Sharon spoke with us about more than âspecs.â for the new home. They were interested in why we were looking at Old Town and what we expected from âdaily lifeâ in the new home. With that information, they brought properties to our attention which we may have missed otherwise. Beyond that, when they had concerns about properties they were candid. It was always our call, but they did their homework to make sure that every decision we made was an informed one. Once under contract, they did all the follow-up! We live 3 hours away, so Dwight was regularly âstanding inâ for us and making sure that all of our expectations were being met. (He was more detailed and âpickierâ than we are!) We are 3 weeks past close and still have contact with them. Not because there are issues, but because they are great people :)
