Having bought and sold several properties over the years, I have dealt with a lot of realtors in the past. Many of those realtors were mediocre at best. When preparing to sell an older rental home in Naples recently, I was needing someone who was familiar with the local market and could help with many decisions in preparing the house for sale, setting a price, etc. I found that in John KroI. He’s a knowledgeable, hard working, experienced professional! He and Kathy did a great job of marketing! They kept me informed regularly and were always quick to respond to calls or texts. They’re the best!

As many in this location we were selling long distance. John & Kathy were a joy from the first. They provided invaluable insight to help us decide on a price. We had an offer from yet another state within a week We closed in 6 weeks during the Pandemic!!! Every call, text and email were answered promptly and courteously. I believe they are the best and only choice for Realtors in Naples.

I was selling my Mom's house in Florida long distance from New York. This was not an easy feat, but John and Kathy guided us every step of the way. Aside from selling the home, they helped me find people to remove furniture and ship a car! This is clearly above and beyond what most realtors would do! I highly recommend them!

John Krol and Kathy Rainford were the absolute best! I cannot begin to share the positive experience my wife and I had in working with these two in selling our home. They were professional, responsive, helpful, insightful, knowledgeable and on heck of a team. Ask for their help... then listen. We did what they recommended and got an offer in two days!!! Thank you John and Kathy!

    As buyers from overseas we found Kathy Rainford and John Krol to be invaluable in the search for our perfect Naples home. They understood our needs and were able to explain the complexities of the USA market to us in a way that we Brits could understand. Our new home was not only perfect for us but turned out to be an investment too. Due to their extensive knowledge of the Naples real estate and their desire to find the right home I would thoroughly recommend John and Kathy to both overseas and USA buyers. Clive and Annette

    We knew the first time we met John Krol and Kathy Rainford they were very professional, trustworthy and helpful and our opinion has only grown in the years we have known them. They not only gave us good advice regarding housing and the nuances of buying the USA but also recommended partners such as lawyers, bank, insurance etc. Kathy and John are always at the end of a phone when we need them and always willing to help. They made the purchase of our dream holiday home in Naples a smooth and stress free process. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Krol Group International to anyone purchasing a property in Florida and we shall certainly use them again. Susan Hilling
    We had a need to sell our condo at Naples, Florida, which had an existing and difficult tenant. Laurie and her colleague John provided superior service through out the whole selling process. We did not have to leave our home state New Jersey and the condo was sold within a few months. We are extremely pleased and grateful with their help and service. Laurie and John advised us in setting an excellent asking price about $10K higher than we estimated based on their knowledge of a strong local market. In addition, Laurie and John negotiated with the buyer to buy the condo as is. The tenant also moved out in time for the sale to go through in the original targeted date. Ming Huei Yue
    Responsive, Professional & First Class describe Laurie Vassalotti & John Krol with the Krol Group. I would highly recommend their organization for any real estate needs. My partner and I put much time and money into creating an amazing home and the virtual tour that was created by the Krol Group was amazing and instrumental in the promotion and sale of our home as was Laurie's knowledge and responsiveness to each need. Our home sold in record time and for top dollar. Thank you! Tod Hernandez
    Client, Buyer "When we initially had the opportunity to purchase property in Naples, Florida we sought information and advice from two Realtors. In Realty World Top Producers however, we received considerably more than just advice on purchasing property. Throughout the process they advised and guided us on investment opportunities, accounting and tax possibilities and US legal considerations. Since choosing the property and returning the UK we never had a moment's anxiety throughout the conveyancing process. They were always at the end of the telephone or email to instantly respond to questions and explain the next step. Everything was carried out efficiently and fast and through their network of trusted bankers, lawyers and accountants we concluded all business without having to return to the USA. Less than 2 years later we are so confident that our affairs are well established with Realty World Top Producers that we are seeking further investment opportunities in the area. The team of John Krol and Kathy Rainford remain in contact with us without bothering us, they understand our requirements and we know that the right opportunity arises they will present it to us. We have enjoyed a very positive relationship with the company and expect to continue to do so for many years. For anyone seeking to enter the property market in Florida, we couldn't recommend them more highly." Alex & Arabella , Cambridge, UK Arabella Cooper
