Her keen sense of the luxury market in St. Petersburg was spot on. Caryn was laser focused through all aspects of the transaction from listing through closing.

“Caryn & her Team provided excellent service during the sale of our townhome, going above-and-beyond to support upgrades to roof, HVAC and exterior improvements while we were stationed in Atlanta. I would encourage anyone in metro-St Petersburg area to sign-up with Caryn to sell their home.” – R. Garvey, Crescent Lake Park 

“Caryn along with her brother Bill Caulfield provided outstanding, dedicated service to us in our house sale. Bill in particular worked tirelessly to help get our house prepped for sale He also went above and beyond to help us resolve several administrative hurdles which was instrumental to facilitating the sale of our house. They were very responsive and available, especially as they were located an hour’s drive away. In short, we definitely felt that they were on our side in seeking to maximize our return on our house sale. Highly recommended.” – T. Bauman, Christina Woods, Lakeland

“My experience with Caryn was nothing short of exceptional. She has a wonderful combination of real estate analytics, people intuition, and a kind spirit that set her apart from (and above!) any of the many agents I have worked with previously. Caryn really cares, not just about the deal but about the people involved in the deal. She’s smart as a whip, does her homework, is always ahead of the game, reads people well, is always positive and flexible, and communicates seamlessly. Her team is wonderful, too! Kim and Bill were complementary rock stars at-the-ready to share their time and expertise. I felt Caryn and her team observed ethical boundaries and were truly my people, on my side … while still working well together with the buyer’s agents. It was a great experience, and I will recommend them to anyone who will listen!” – A. Calvin, Old Northeast

“Caryn and her team went above and beyond for us! She was there to help us throughout the entire process. We moved out of state prior to closing, and they were absolutely incredible with scheduling and running inspections and various vendors pre-closing. Would absolutely recommend Caryn and her team and would 100% work with them again!” – C. Gairing, Shore Acres

“Caryn is a true professional. Her presentation at our first meeting was thoughtful and thorough. All of our questions were answered carefully and completely. Caryn explained the process that we’d go through if we chose Sotheby’s and described in detail how she would market our home. Her experience and research as to the pricing of our home was invaluable. We sold our home quickly to a highly qualified buyer and had a solid back-up offer in place through the closing date. Caryn worked tirelessly throughout the whole process. She did a fantastic job from start to finish!” – T. Burke, Venetian Isles 

“I am a luxury REALTOR® in South Florida. When it came time to sell my mother’s home, I had very high expectations. Caryn’s team stood out as a client-centered team with expertise in providing advice on pricing, and they created an excellent marketing strategy for selling the home. They successfully navigated a complex home sale, generated multiple offers & worked seamlessly with my family. Caryn is a strong negotiator willing to go the distance and who puts her customers’ needs first.” – N. Chmielewski-Kirstein, St Pete Beach

“Caryn Rightmyer and Kim Vulpis were extremely helpful to me. Selling a home, particularly one in another state, is a stressful experience. They were positive and encouraging and kept me in the loop through the entire process. They were spot on with the asking price that they suggested for the home. Both Caryn and Kim called me regularly so I was always aware of the progress being made. I would recommend them to anyone. It is obvious that selling a home is more than just a job to them.” -L. Stohl, Trustee

“Tracey and I really enjoyed working with Caryn, Bill, Kim and their team at Premier Sotheby’s. They were very professional and went the extra mile. The 3D video was amazing on our home and so were the great photos taken from sunrise to sunset. Bill made over 20 trips to the property to make sure it was ready to show and did a great job with the other realtors that brought potential buyers to our place. He studied up on the condo and was able to convey everything from the window upgrades to the boat dock. In addition, Caryn and Bill were able to negotiate and get us top dollar — even more than I had hoped for at the beginning of the sales process! Thank you so much for your hard work. We could not be happier with the terrific job your team did.” – B. Sullivan, Clearwater Beach

“Caryn was professional and engaged from our first meeting when we were considering selling. She was well prepared with the information we needed to make a decision. Once we decided to sell, it was obvious she had a proven process for getting the property on the market and making sure it was presented to a large market. The home went under contract quickly and Caryn and her team communicated throughout the entire process until the sale was closed. I will recommend her to my friends interested in selling.” – C. Burke, Venetian Isles

“Caryn and her team helped us find our home in an extremely competitive St Pete market in Spring 2022. She has vast real estate knowledge and had several different strategies in creating offers in this tough market. She made sure we never went over budget, never pressured us to submit an offer, and was the voice of reason. She was so positive and we trusted her judgement with mortgage lenders and inspectors, and they were all trustworthy and outstanding. Her colleague Bill would drive us around and tour houses at least 3 times a week. It was grueling but he was very dedicated and flexible. Kim was extremely fast  crafting offers and preparing materials. This entire team worked around the clock for us, and they were vital in finding our home. We know they did so much work behind the scenes and we cannot thank them enough. We could not imagine not having them as realtors and would work with them in a heartbeat. They are the best!” – M. Vu

“Caryn Rightmyer devoted countless hours to each phase of the sale process of my parents’ home, from preparation to closing. As problems came up, she was diligent and patient to resolve them.

“From the first conversation to discuss the listing, to the final signature on closing, Caryn and her team were outstanding to work with. We had somewhat of a complicated situation, and they made it a seamless experience for us. Caryn managed every aspect of getting our house “market-ready” and the team was an enormous help in ensuring the house was secure, cared for, and well-maintained in our absence. They treated our sale as they would have treated the sale of their own homes. Regular, detailed updates, thoughtful discussions, and their reliability in tracking down needed cleaners and repair-staff are only a few examples of the support they provided. We cannot say enough to highly recommend this team, and we wouldn’t list with anyone else.” -D. MacLaren, Snell Isle

“I had an ideal experience with Caryn in buying my first property! She worked so incredibly hard for me, and it was very reassuring as a first-time buyer to have someone who had my best interest at heart on my team. Caryn is a phenomenal realtor and I highly recommend her!”– K. Lawner, Downtown St Pete

“Caryn and team were recommended highly by the Estate attorney I’m working with, and they did NOT disappoint. They infused a potentially complicated and difficult process with an ease that gave me confidence in their abilities and a calm atmosphere within which to work. Their support staff was excellent and skilled, as well. When we began, I was given needed and experienced advice in how to prepare the unit for sale, and I felt like a member of the team in setting a price. From start to finish, this was a very productive and harmonic collaboration. I would have them handle any future properties I may have without hesitation. You would do well to use them, and I believe, walk away with the same positive experience as I have.”— L. Maurello, Trustee, S Pasadena

“We first met with Caryn to list our St. Petersburg condo. She is an expert on the area and helped us list at the top price for the market with excellent marketing support. Expert photographs were taken that included drone shots of the condo and professional photos of our unit that maximized the view. We were out of state during most of the process. Caryn and team worked seamlessly together to respond immediately to everything from showings to running closing documents to replacing a few switch plates we missed at the last minute, to even battling a few wasps who decided to move on to the balcony. We highly recommend and will seek them out should we buy or sell in the Tampa Bay Area in the future. They went over and above to work for us during the whole sales process, and we sincerely appreciate it.”—W.Drexler, Gandy

“Caryn and team are smart, ethical, savvy, tireless, and dedicated to their clients! This was not our first home purchase, but our experience with them was certainly the best. Caryn and team have lived in St. Petersburg for many years, and raised their families here. They are active members of our community, and have invested countless amounts of time and energy into volunteer efforts to benefit our city and its residents. These experiences have given them unparalleled knowledge of our city and all its unique neighborhoods. They put so much effort into helping us find the perfect home for our family: they had such quick response times when we would contact them and they were very accommodating to our busy schedules. They sincerely had our best interest at heart and we could really trust them to guide us in the right direction. They were interested in learning about our family’s specific needs, provided honest feedback, and never made us feel pressured. They offered plenty of patience and expert-level guidance during every step of the process- from narrowing down our search areas, providing us with CMA’s, advising us with making an offer, negotiating with the seller, and ensuring a smooth closing. Their finesse during negotiations benefitted us and our wallet greatly! We enthusiastically refer friends and family to them, because we know they will have the same fantastic experience we did.”—D. McKenna, Northeast Park

What a professional, pleasant home sale experience we had with Caryn Rightmyer and Group. She was attentive, communicative and there for us at every turn of what can be a stressful process. In our particular case, she went out of her way to solve issues and keep us in the communication loop. Access to her was never an issue, and we greatly appreciated her timely responses to our frequent questions and concerns. We would without hesitation recommend Caryn to anyone considering selling their home. What an honor and pleasure to be represented by this real estate pro.” –S Coppins, Harbor Isle

“Caryn is the best! She is full of knowledge and experience. She made this sale as smooth as it could be. She will always be our realtor in this city!” –G
Coppins, Harbor Isle

“My expectations of a professional real estate agent are probably higher than most, so I conducted an interview process with 3 agents/teams based on my set of measuring criteria. I selected the agents/teams based on their performance and inventory in homes that shared similar characteristics (price range, buyer profile, area), and then scheduled interviews. While it was clear that each team was competent after the interviews, the professionalism that Caryn exhibited through the entire interview process placed her head and shoulders above the others. That professionalism was most obvious in her preparation specific to my home and potential buyers. That experience carried through the entire process from her choice of photographer, staging, buyer showings and all of the way through closing. She worked with me through the pricing analysis taking into consideration our desire for a longer closer period, and I feel all of that work resulted in exactly what we wanted out of the process including selling for above list and closing in our targeted range. I strongly recommend Caryn especially if you are looking for the ultimate professional who will be your partner through the entire process. She provided sound guidance through each step – even if that guidance isn’t what you necessarily want to hear – and she backs it up with data and experience that gives a seller confidence.” –M. Whitlatch, Tanglewood

“Caryn & her team were excellent communicators and professionals. Kept us informed through the entire process & visited periodically to get our input and concerns.” –L. Gutzler, Trustee, Snell Isle

“Caryn and her team were fabulous! They both were very professional & were on top of every detail in the process. Anytime I had a question they would respond quickly. I would highly recommend them to anyone!!” — C. Hardwick, Eden Wood

“Caryn was terrific from start to finish. She came well prepared, met all of our expectations and set us up to succeed. We had offers the first day and closed just ten days after listing, for more than our asking price! Great job. Thank you!!” –E. Baird, Woodlawn

“Needed to sell a property as part of an estate liquidation while being based several states away. Caryn took the time to learn my motivators for the sale and provided helpful guidance during the entire process. Including evolving market dynamics. Selling a property is never without some difficulties, however Caryn made the entire process as easy as one could ever ask. Highly recommend Caryn and her team.” –S. Rabe, Trustee, South Pasadena
