Kathy Burgreen answered:
Is this agent licensed by the state?? The bigger issue is every licensed agent has a contract with their brokerage to work as a realtor (independent contractor). The Broker in Charge / Office Manager is LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE for their agent's actions AND the brokerage does NOT allow verbal listings. Every listing is owned by the brokerage - not the individual agent. So this agent violated every rule in the book. ... more

The majority of older homes and condos have the 8' ceilings so you are not at a disadvantage if a buyer is looking in your price range and most of the area condos were built around the same time. Since you have sea views, I am sure that is the case with your unit. There are other factors that are much more important: the location of the condo, the views from the windows, the access to the beaches, the upgrades that have been done and the condition of the unit.
If a buyer is looking in Longboat Key, Lido Key, Siesta Key and the other beach and bay areas, they expect older units. Pricing of the condo will be based on all of the factors I mentioned so do not worry about the height of the ceilings. I am working with beach condo buyers now in all different price ranges. I have not had one say they did not want to see any with low ceilings. They are saying they want as many upgrades as possible in their price range and water views of the outside.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Actually, gray is the new white for kitchen cabinets.

It's almost impossible to keep at the very front of all home design trends. That being said, take a look at the builder model homes in Palmer Ranch. Most of the kitchen designs still include darker wood cabinets. So your cherry cabinets probably won't be a deciding factor for most home buyers coming through your home.

Without actually seeing the granite countertops and slate floors, it's hard to comment whether the greenish tones against the cherry tones of the cabinets will be off putting to some potential buyers. There are ways to play down the green through paint, backsplash, decor, etc.

A smart agent will play up the positives of having, as you said, a wonderful large kitchen with lots of storage space and great appliances.
