About Anne

Anne Garber
Anne Garber has helped over 275 Bay area homeowners buy and sell their homes since 2014

I’m Anne Garber, a realtor & real estate broker. Since 2014, I’ve helped my clients buy and sell more than 275 homes, throughout Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas & Hernando Counties. I’m aware of current trends in market values, new developments, local schools, neighborhoods, communities, and all other aspects of home ownership that are relevant to your home purchase or sale.

I’ve sold all kinds of homes in every price range: single-family homes, condos, townhomes, million-dollar+ properties, and everything in between. I’m old-school in that customer service is important to me – I answer my phone, I will return your call, and I will follow up and update you in a timely manner.

I’m originally from a small town in England, and have been living here in Tampa since 2005, with my husband and our 3 children. As a mom, I’ve been through elementary, middle, and high-school with my kids. So I’m very familiar with the school systems, malls, entertainment, and so on.

And by the way, “Yes,” that is a very large number of transactions (which can be verified on the MLS). Especially when you consider the average realtor only sells somewhere between 2 and 8 homes a year. And yes, this puts me on some “Top Realtor Performance” lists. But frankly, that kind of stuff isn’t important to me.

When it comes to real estate, what’s important to me is helping clients sell and buy their homes without any stress. I know, from my own personal experience… there are so many moving parts to this process, it’s almost impossible for a homeowner to manage them all, while still going about running your own day-to-day life, on top of this.

I look at my role as being your “quarterback,” who oversees everything and coordinates all these moving parts into one smooth working plan. I’m incredibly well-organized, which helps me manage things… I keep my eye on the ball… and I’m always looking a few steps ahead. 

I don’t like 11th hour emergencies either, so I tend to plan well, and anticipate things. After all, buying and selling your home, and moving… is stressful enough. When you add to this, the large amount of time, money, and physical energy also involved… who needs more stress, right?

Not you and not me.

As far as my background goes, before becoming a realtor, I spent close to a dozen years raising my children and working part time handling all the bookkeeping and customer service of my husband’s business.

Before that, I was the VP of Operations of a National Service Company. I had 110 people reporting to me and was responsible for setting up local offices all over the country.

When it comes to choosing a home, I know how important location and convenience is, especially when you have a family.

Once my daughter was born, I stopped working full time and began working with my husband. It was great, because I was working out of the house, which allowed me to also be a full-time mom.

As my daughter got older and into her teenage years, I wanted to go back to work again. Since I spent so many years in the service business I wanted to work in that field. And because I love the Tampa Bay area, real estate just made sense.

I took my real estate licensing exam, passed my test… and started working – really hard. And because I have a “get things done” mentality, and a strong work ethic… things sort of fell into place.

I love what I do. I work hard and clients like me, and they like that I’m able to work efficiently, while making sure there are no loose ends.

The bottom line is, I just enjoy the process of helping clients buy and sell their homes.

After 3 years in the business, I wanted to truly run my own business, so I studied for, and passed the Real Estate Broker’s license.

Oh, one more thing you need to know about me – and this is important: 

I’m not pushy, at all… so you’ll never have to deal with any kind of
“sales junk” or anything else like that, when you’re working with me

If we meet and you want to work with me, great. And if not, that’s fine too. I want to help people buy and sell real estate, period. And I want to work with those people who are excited and feel good about working with me on this.

P.S. Also, make sure you check out my two, Zero-Risk Homeowner Guarantees. This makes dealing with me a no-brainer for most home owners:

My No Risk Seller’s Guarantee, and my Buyer’s and Seller’s “No Rubbish” Guarantee make me uniquely different, in a world where one realtor is basically no different from another.

Lastly, as you know… what others have to say about someone means a lot more than what they have to say about themselves. With this in mind, make sure you take a look at what some of my clients have to say about working with me.
