Kudos to…



I found the most beautiful 5 acre piece of property in Reddick, Florida with the help of Melissa Townsend. In many years of many real estate deals, have never come across an agent quite like Melissa. She went above and beyond all professional expectations. Always in contact (but never intrusive!) Melissa set up Geo Tech drilling, survey, contacted multiple builders for new house plans, helped place cones for ideal building locations, even talked with previous owners about keeping their horses on the property and arranged mowing services. Amazing. 

Melissa met me every time I came up (from Collier County), even after the sale. It was a seamlessly smooth closing from a distance. She was the icing on the cake, the creme de la creme!

Melissa Townsend embodies the first 4 words in the name of the realty company she works with, "It's All About You...Real Estate" and (by her words and actions) uses those words as a business philosophy. I was tasked with selling a family home from 40 miles away and she helped to make the process so much easier. Every time I had a question or needed help (such as finding a new yard guy or someone to do a last minute cleanup) she responded very quickly, often times within minutes.

We had multiple verbal offers the very first day the house went on the market and within the first few days we had a signed contract and several signed backup contracts. Many realtors don't want to take backup offers but Melissa went to the time and trouble to do so. Consequently, when the first contract "went south" we had another waiting and closed that one within 2 weeks.

Outstanding realtor! Takes the time and effort to find the right property and stayed true to my criteria. She made relocation of my farm to my ideal property a dream come true!

Jill Hoenmans, Farm Buyer

Melissa was outstanding with helping me purchase a home moving from out of state to the Dunnellon area.  I needed to move quickly on the home I was interested in. She did a virtual walkthrough with me, sent multiple videos, and essentially made it feel like I was on-site walking the home myself. 

Jeff Skirvin, Relocation Buyer

Melissa helped us sell our house & find our dream home in Woodfields - and we couldn’t be more thankful! She is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and really took the time to get to know us and understand what we were looking for. Also, I will forever be in debt to her for her recommendations for contractors to help us renovate our historic home 🙂 Highly recommend working with her!

Kacey Gray, Buyer

Melissa goes above and beyond for her clients. We were making a big move from the Northeast to FL and Melissa was our lifeline. She took the time to get to know us, what we were looking for, and offered sage advice and perspective on the area and what would meet our needs - and wants! She fielded everything for us locally and provided excellent recommendations for services in the area. We could not have found our perfect home without her. I can’t recommend working with Melissa enough!

Elizabeth Amend Suchy, Relocation Buyer

Melissa was so great to work with! We could really tell she had our best interests in mind and wanted to find the right house for us! She was patient and kind with us when we had a lot of questions. The best choice in the Ocala area!

Jon and Sara Comiskey, Relocation Buyer

Both my husband, Hal, and I thank Melissa for her professional guidance through the sale of our home. From the pricing of the home to the closing, she did an excellent job. Melissa also helped us get the home ready to show and did a very professional photo presentation as well as overseeing all the showings. Her friendly and attentive manner all the way to closing made this whole experience worry free. Thank you Melissa!

Barbara Reid, Seller

I couldn't recommend Melissa and It's All About You Real Estate more. From day 1 she made it feel like what my wife and I wanted mattered the most. In this current, crazy market I cannot imagine trusting anyone else to get into our house. Melissa is caring, thorough, and works tirelessly to find you the house you want.

Josh Acree, Buyer and Seller

I've known Melissa in a professional capacity for a number of years, so when my husband and I were looking to purchase an investment property, she was an easy choice. She was an amazing fit for us. After assisting with finding the right property, she was immediately onboard helping with negotiations and contracts, she assisted with making sure we found an inspection company as well as an electrician. She ensured that our desired closing date was met. If an opportunity presents itself, we will absolutely entrust our future investments in the very capable hands of Melissa!

Endira Madraveren, Investor and Buyer

We could not have chosen a better realtor! Being new to Florida, Melissa’s knowledge about Ocala and the area were invaluable to us. Besides sharing her knowledge of the housing market, she was a great resource for what Ocala has to offer from restaurants to the arts and more. She was engaged in our search from the first time we met her. Before we came from Illinois to tour houses, she watched and sent us new listings she felt met our needs. She really listened and picked up on what we were looking for in a home. She was on top of everything from the beginning through our closing. Her friendly personality made the whole process so enjoyable. We highly recommend Melissa!

Morrie & Carol Cook, Relocation Buyer

I am forever grateful to Melissa for helping me scout out and purchase a home for my Mom. Her knowledge and expertise were priceless in our very challenging situation. The home we chose needed a lot of help to make the deal work. Melissa knew the right trustworthy people to get everything done. 

Melissa is very friendly, knowledgable, and hard working. I highly recommend her, and will definitely use her in the future.

April Volling, Buyer

I can literally not recommend Melissa enough. She was incredibly thorough and was all in to make sure we found the best fit for me financially, aesthetically and locationally. I am still raving about how amazing she is to anyone that will listen. 10 out of 10 would use again!

Rachel Fautsch, Buyer

Melissa is the best! We have bought and sold multiple properties with Melissa. Thank you for making our dreams a reality!

Alberto Comas, Seller and Buyer

Melissa Townsend was not only wonderful and kind to work with, but she was knowledgeable of the current real estate climate, providing us with extensive information about our neighborhood and sales that had recently taken place which led us to make the best decisions for our family. After Melissa quickly found a buyer for our home, she was also able to assist us in our next home. Should we ever be selling or looking to buy again-Melissa will be the first choice!

Braegan Hughes, Seller


Cynthia is a wonderful and thoughtful person. She went above and beyond my expectations. It has been about 10 years since I purchased a home and I had a lot of questions for my unique situation. Cynthia was able to answer them all and provide me with very helpful advice. While touring the first day she was very astute, making notes about my concerns and desires as a new homeowner. At this point I felt Cynthia was definitely working for me. The next few homes we toured aligned with all my needs as a family of five with pets. I was able to find a large home that is perfect for my family. She was available very quickly if anything came up and she provided me with some really great people to get funded and closed. The process was very stream lined and almost too easy. I would highly recommend Cynthia to anyone looking to buy, rent or sell.

Tonya Johnson, Buyer

Cynthia is a personally attentive agent that makes clients feel as though they are her only customers. In my opinion, her personal approach with clients, tenure within Marion County, and equine industry experience sets her apart from the local competition.

I trust my clients to work with Cynthia on land acquisitions and with listing of properties. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to others looking to buy or sell real estate in Central Florida. 

Ryan Gummer, Owner, Secure Built Custom Homes

I just wanted to share how amazing I feel Cynthia has been and is! I'm so very impressed with the brokerage and the level of service provided. You truly go above and beyond.

Kim Andersen, Relocation Customer

From the moment I first met Cynthia, I knew she fully understood and identified with our brokerage's culture. I have no hesitation that Cynthia will always uphold our high standards and ensure that our customers receive the "It's All About You..." experience.

Fabiola is an incredible realtor. She helped us through the buying process without a hitch. There were multiple offers and she guided us through that situation successfully.  Any questions or concerns we had, she immediately had answers and solutions. She was knowledge about the property and was available to us at any time. In the future if we need a realtor, without a question it will be Fabiola!

Nancy Ott, Relocation Buyer

Fabiola is the consummate professional. I believe her to be the best Realtor I have ever met. I absolutely adore her. Her work ethic is unparalleled and she truly does care about her clients.

In one of the most difficult markets, she is still capable of finding properties that meet the criteria of her clients. Not merely "here's a house" but rather, "this house will meet your needs...I have previewed it and you will love it"... and I did.

If you need a realtor in her service area, do yourself a favor and contact her. You will not regret it. She is amazing in every sense of the word.

Tom Lee, Relocation Buyer

We had a great experience with Fabiola from start to finish in selling our home. She gave us advice on how to best stage it and the pictures she had taken were outstanding. I know that helped sell the house since so many potential buyers looked at those pictures to decide if they wanted a showing. It sold quick and the closing process was painless. Thank you Fabiola.

Patty Schiefer, Seller

Fabiola did a fantastic job helping us through the process of purchasing our forever home from clear across the country. Her knowledge of the area and types of construction made it easier for her with our wish list of wants and don't wants. It was a detailed, long list. Fabiola went above and beyond acting on our behalf scheduling all inspections and making sure we closed when we needed to. It was a tight schedule and she got it done!! She was always available and responded immediately. She was able to work with our family member who on occasion would drive one and a half hours to view properties with her on our behalf during the shopping process and the inspection process. We highly recommend Fabiola for local and for out of state real estate needs. She is fabulous! Thank you again Fabiola!

Kimberly Rooney, Relocation Buyer

Last year after my retirement, I decided to find a location that would give me more land, large trees and five hours closer to my N.C. property. When looking for a realtor, I ran across a name "It's all about you" that sounded interesting. An agent responded to my call, Fabiola Barrios, and soon she had several listings to explore. Within a few weeks she found my dream home. Fabiola helped me with all the closing paperwork. I found a great agent and also great friend.

Allen Long, Relocation Buyer

Fabiola is the absolute best!! She is incredibly responsive to all calls and text messages, and worked miracles to make my dream home become a reality.  I absolutely recommend Fabiola without hesitation for any real estate needs!

Tracy Armstrong, Buyer

Fabiola was so amazing to work with. She listened to our needs, our wants, and was available whenever we asked about a property, even "after hours".  She even drove an hour north to view houses for us!

We can't even begin to thank her enough in helping us find our first home, and we'd highly recommend her to ANYONE looking for land, a starter home, and more!

Nichole Barrett, Buyer

I had a very limited time to find a suitable house and wished to keep the price within my cash budget, without having to resort to my pre-approved mortgage. Fabiola, after much searching, found one for me to view that met my main requirements. She placed the bid for me, it was a cash only purchase and we closed within a few days. Fabiola was professional and accommodating and a pleasure to work with. She exhibited a great deal of patience for a buyer as difficult as I. I highly recommend her.

Ben Arnold, Buyer

I highly recommend Fabiola as your real estate professional. She was considerate of my time and helped me tremendously with everything that needed to be done for the property I purchased. Fabiola will do a great job for you!

Teresa Strom, Investor and Buyer

I feel privileged to have Fabiola working for our brokerage. Fabiola has embraced our organization's culture and ensures that her customers' needs are always met. Her diligence and determination continually secures properties for her buyers in a very challenging and fast-paced market.
