"Pattie provided excellent advice and counsel during the selling process.  She was constantly checking comparable sales and listings to ensure we were asking a realistic price for our condo. She is also cognizant of the latest real estate developments and communicated important matters to us in a timely manner.  Overall, I felt that she was dedicated and committed to working hard for us and earned her commission in spades!"

Bill Gunther

"Diane and Bryan started as our realtors but by the end of the sale we felt as though they had become friends. 

Their ability to have compassion with people who were not selling just a house but a home, the tenacity to deal with building departments and code as well as the personality of dealing with buyers and other realtors, was astonishing. 

The knowledge of the area, an even vaster knowledge of the officials, real estate law and the habits of buyers/sellers made other realtors pale in comparison. 
Any situation that came up was dealt with quickly and efficiently. 

As with any home there were problems with things such as location and other issues. These were overcome by showing the positive aspects of the property as well as the future potential. 

They even got our house shown on HGTV as a result of the superb job done on the internet posting. 

We would not only recommend them for their capabilities as realtors but for the honesty and compassion they exuded. It's known that moving is one of the most stressful periods in ones life, Diane and Bryan not only made it bearable but enjoyable. "

"After failed attempts to get the deal closed on this property with another agent, Bryan Sawchuk was able to get it done for me! 

I sought after Bryan as I knew he was familiar with the Wilton Manors area, with an awesome reputation, in hopes he could get me this house. 

It took lots of hard work and negotiating on Bryan's part, but he did it! 

Bryan cares and is extremely dedicated. He's the real deal!"

"We've been working with Patti for years and her professionalism and her beautiful personality has won us over.  In 2010 she found our dream condo on the ocean in Hollywood Florida, then in 2012 she sold the condo for us making a nice profit.  In 2012 Patti listed our house for sale and sold our house in West Lake Village for a nice profit.  Patti knows Real Estate and knew exactly how to show the house/condo and sell it.  My husband and I would recommend Patti to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home or a condo."

Okim Kaufman

"Bryan went above and beyond to sell our rental property, getting two offers the first day it was listed, one of which went on to close. 

There were a number of hurdles along the way, and the Sawchuk team kept communicating with all the parties and broke through each obstacle to make the sale happen! Highly recommend Bryan and his team!"

"I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with A1 Florida Real Estate. Throughout the entire process they were professional, conscientious, and motivated. 

We would highly recommend Diane Sawchuk and Bryan Sawchuk of A1 Florida Real Estate and deal with them for any future real estate transactions."

"Bryan and Diane did an amazing job with the sale of our house! It was priced properly which, along with great suggestions, guidance and marketing, resulted in multiple offers right away, one of which we recently closed on. 

There were numerous obstacles to overcome during the process, which Bryan and the office handled professionally and skillfully, never losing sight of the goal - to close in a timely fashion. 

I would highly recommend Bryan and Diane to anyone looking to sell their property. A great office to work with, and they get the job done! We are very grateful."

"To Whom it May Concern - 

I recently sold my condominium located in Downtown Fort Lauderdale, FL in 2011 via short sale with the help of Diane and her office. This sale would simply not have been possible if it wasn't for Diane's tireless efforts. 

Diane made this process as smooth as possible with plenty of patience along the way while making herself available with excellent communication throughout the progression of the sale. 

I would strongly recommend that anyone in need of selling their property by means of short sale, or any other method to use Diane's office, as it made something that can be so time consuming and stressful, an absolute pleasurable and worry-free experience. 

Feel free to contact me for any questions about my experience with A1 Florida Real Estate."

"To Whom It May Concern: 

I am writing to express my pleasure with real estate agent Bryan Sawchuk, who represented me in my recent condo short sale. I credit Bryan with smooth, stress free short sale experience. 

I am nothing but pleased with Bryan and his expertise. He is savvy, personable, and knows the real estate market inside and out. 

I could have never closed the deal without him, and recommend him to everyone."

Eva Gianesi

Miami Beach, Florida

"To Whom This May Concern: 

In 2010 Diane and Bryan assisted me with the short sale of three properties in Fort Lauderdale. They are truly professionals and were able to close on each property promptly. I am very grateful for them, as I really struggled for a long time by myself with the banks. Once I handed the short sales over to them, I felt that I was going to be able to finally close on these properties. There were plenty of obstacles that they were able to overcome incredibly fast. 

They are really committed to get the deal done and they have plenty of experience in short sales and foreclosures. I recommend them to anybody who is considering selling or buying a property."

Adriana Ferrufino

"I needed a realtor to sell my home in a difficult time. My daughter put me in touch with a friend of her's, Bryan Sawchuk. Bryan took the bull by the horns, so to speak, and started working diligently to sell the house on my behalf. 

During the time it took to sell my home, Bryan made every effort to make everything so easy, took me step-by-step, told me what was going on and kept me totally informed. 

I would highly recommend Bryan Sawchuk of A1 Florida Real Estate to anyone in need of buying and selling a home."

Jan Wooden

"Diane stands out as one of the finest real estate brokers with whom I have had the opportunity to work. She displays a rare blend of "savvy," hustle, compassion, and understanding of not only her market and market techniques but also financing alternatives tailored to the needs of the target purchaser, and a keen grasp for human nature and the underlying psychologies of buying and selling. Any real estate brokerage listings you place with her would, most assuredly, be placed in good hands."

Robert B. Dunckel

"We are writing to strongly recommend Diane Sawchuk of A1 Florida Real Estate. 

We'd heard stories about what a slow and painful process purchasing a short sale could be, but Diane stayed on top of the seller's bank, making the transaction relatively quick and easy. 

Diane is extremely professional, very knowledgeable and worked hard to serve us. It has been a pleasure working with her and we highly recommend her and A1 Florida Real Estate."

"I cannot believe your ultimate real estate knowledge of South Florida, in particular East Fort Lauderdale, Oakland Park, and Wilton Manors. I came to you with a lot of demands that I wanted in a home and within a week I wrote an offer on my new home. I am so happy with it. Thank you again for working so hard and the long hours to help me. I love my place - please stop by and see it soon. Any one who you assist with the purchase of a property should consider themselves in great hands. You are a blessing in disguise!!"

"To Whom It May Concern: 

Little Acorn Development LLC is a residential real estate investment company operating in Broward County since 2009. We are predominantly focused on acquiring vacant, bank-owned foreclosed properties and transforming them into attractive, fully-refurbished and occupied rental homes. 

Diane Sawchuk and Bryan Sawchuk have acted as agents in the only two short properties we have acquired via short sale to date. We had previously only had unsucessful attempts in short sales and were initially skeptikal as to A1 Florida Real Estate's ability to deliver us property on a timely basis at a reasonable market price. 

A1 Florida Real Estate has exceeded all of our expectations on these two transactions and operated in a professional and courteous manner. I have no reservation in recommending Diane and Bryan to other potential skeptics in the short sale process and wish them both continued success in the future.

"I would like to acknowledge the excellent service provided to me through A1 Florida Real Estate in my recent property acquisition in Tamarac. 

As a "short sale" going towards foreclosure, the prospect of having timely responses from the bank was quite remote, if not impossible. Yet, within 2 months, thanks to your contacts and diligence, we were able to negotiate the selling price, obtain approval from both the then-owner and the bank, and close the transaction. Quite a feat in the current market! 

Your commitment to ensuring my complete satisfaction in dealing with you/your office was further exemplified through the reliable (and reasonable) referrals of professionals for the planned repairs and improvements in the house. 

Finally, as a Canadian, unfamiliar with the different subleties of real estate legislations in the USA, I particularly appreciated your patience in ensuring that I had the proper information to reach the comfort level to go through the process with confidence. 

Thanks again for your help. I would certainly not hesitate to recommend you/your professional real estate services to any prospective buyer.

"From the first day that we worked with Bryan, we knew that our search for a great realtor was over. We quickly found that he was in a league of his own with his work ethic. He set appointments around our busy schedules and would routinely have us seeing 6 to 10 houses within 1 to 2 hours. He did this for days until we had seen every house on the market in a neighborhood. After he learned our specific taste, he would even go see houses on his own to save time. 

Bryan always made sure that we had the price comparables information we needed for all of the neighborhoods we were interested in. He clearly answered all of our questions explaining all the areas of the home buying process to us, and would teach us about the local real estate markets as we traveled from house to house. He truly made us feel confident that we were armed with the right information to buy our first home. We would without a doubt recommend him to anyone, including our best friends and closest family members. "

"We want you to know how thrilled we are with our new home and how grateful we are to YOU for making it happen. You sold both of our properties within two weeks, helped us find the perfect home for our family, steered us through the mortgage maze, and helped us in so many other ways - we still can't believe it all happened SO QUICKLY! You really did an exceptional job, Diane. Your knowledge of Fort Lauderdale's east side is a real asset to you. 

Thanks again. We'll always remember the part you played in our life. We hope your business prospers - it should with all the referrals you receive from satisfied customers like us."

"It would be my pleasure to recommend Diane Sawchuk & Bryan Sawchuk for any of their real estate representation. I have had the opportunity to utilize them for 15+ years on multiple listings or sales, and have had a 100% success on each venture. 

Diane and Bryan have the knowledge, ability, and motivation that sets them apart from others in their field, and they truly have a drive that has a huge benefit when working with the client. 

I hold them both in a very high regard, and also insist my family uses them as well when there is an opportunity. "

Steven Jones

"I had the good fortune to select Bryan Sawchuk during my recent home search in Fort Lauderdale. Bryan worked tirelessly to help me come to a successful conclusion. 

He listened to my needs and concerns during my search and consistently demonstrated professionalism, courtesy, and communication. 

Bryan always managed to think "outside the box" during negotiations, not only to ensure my best interests were being considered, but also in a way that would support the overall goal of securing my "forever home" 

Bryan's work ethic is a rare commodity in today's environment where literally thousands of Realtors are asking for your trust in what will most likely be the largest investment of one's life. 

I can proudly say that I would recommend Bryan with the highest level of confidence."

Ron Fleenor

Wilton Manors, Florida

"We are indebted to the Sawchuks! We had been looking for sooooo long, and not only was Bryan supportive during the stressful process of finding the 'right' house, but when the time came, both he and Diane were the reason we closed. 

I was 7 months pregnant and we couldn't have been any more grateful! Now our first house is a home, thanks to their support, experience, and professional work ethic. "

"A few months ago, I was fortunate enough to come across A1 Florida Real Estate through some personal references while I was looking for my very first residence to purchase. I only had limited knowledge about what to expect, but had heard great things about the high level of professionalism and caring that past clients of A1 Florida Estate had experienced. 

Now that I am a proud homeowner, I can only say great things about A1 Florida Real Estate and their incredible level of knowledge, experience, and attention to detail. They offered sound advice and a multitude of options, all of which led me to get exactly what I was looking for, and for far less than I would have gotten it for otherwise. 


As a combat veteran and ex-military man, I have high standards when it comes to the level of proficiency a professional displays, and their is no higher level of proficiency than the one displayed by Bryan Sawchuk and Diane Sawchuk. Their company is truly the one to seek out for your real estate needs."

"I can't express enough the appreciation I feel for the time and the effort that Diane and Bryan afforded me in the purchase of my home. You went above and beyond my expectation of what an agent's responsibilities are and jumped in to take care of any issue that came up quickly and professionally. 

Your diligence and hard work allowed me to close on my short sale home purchase in record time. I understand how tough it can sometimes be to deal with buyers, sellers, banks, and lawyers in order to finalize the sale, but I have to say, you make it look effortless. 

I will recommend your services to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell a home, and that is a testimony of my complete satisfaction. You know the business better than anyone else, and I am confident that word of mouth will bring lots of business your way! I consider you and Bryan friends who are welcome at my home anytime."

"Dear Diane, 

If ever there was a person to be praised for her ability to make a real estate sale or purchase happen it is you. We want to thank you for your wonderful professional help for a job well done. 

We feel that it needs to be said that where many others take the quick and easy approach to their job and sometimes fail, you always get the job done. Your professional know how, ability to solve all the problems, and tie up the loose ends, never forgetting any of the details make your closings go smoothly every time. 

We appreciate your help so much with our real estate dealings, most recently and over the years.

"When I first started looking for a home it was very hard for me to understand the whole process that is involved with purchasing a home. Bryan helped me from the beginning. We tackled the steps involved in selecting the right loan and lender for me and then proceeded from there. From the property inspection to the meeting with the homeowner's association to the closing, Bryan was always a step ahead of the game. He is very energetic, full of enthusiasm, and has a professional ability to always stay on top of the situation. Best of all he was always available when I needed him and was able to answer the questions which I had. I have no doubt you will be 100% satisfied with the real estate services and professional ability of Bryan Sawchuk."
