About Wendy

footer_pic

Born and raised in Florida, I have lived in Tampa since 1990. I’m proud to call Tampa my home. My father was born in the South Tampa home in which he was raised, graduated from Plant High School, attended the University of Tampa, and eventually began his broadcasting career in Tampa. Since his passing in 2010, I feel even more honored to live and work in the Tampa Bay area, creating my own roots and history here.

My husband is also a Tampa native, and has been a local practicing attorney since 1983. We have three beautiful daughters: our eldest is a school teacher, our middle daughter just graduated from college and works in the corporate world, and our youngest daughter thrives in high school. We are fortunate to have much of our extended family within the Tampa area and throughout Florida.

As a full-time Realtor®, I specialize in residential real estate throughout the Tampa Bay area and rank among the top Realtors® for sales volume out of thousands of agents in the Greater Tampa Association of Realtors®. My license is placed with Florida Executive Realty, one of only three Tampa Bay brokerages which are members of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and Luxury Portfolio International®, and I am honored to be a partner in their Westchase office. In 2011, I was voted the “Best of Northwest Realtor®” by the readers of the Tampa Tribune, and Florida Executive Realty named me as their Agent of the Year for 2012 and 2015. In 2016, Florida Executive Realty honored me with the company’s Leadership Award. In 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, I won Excellence in Marketing awards for my ongoing marketing presence and quality. I was chosen to be a member of the Leadership Tampa Class of 2014 through the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce and currently stay active with Leadership Tampa Alumni serving on their Alumni cabinet. I have earned my CNE designation (Certified Negotiation Expert) and am consistently a Top Producer in my company, selling millions and millions of dollars in real estate each year. In an effort to further my credentials and knowledge, I obtained my real estate broker’s license and currently serve as a Broker Associate.

A majority of my business is referral-based from those I’ve successfully assisted over the years. Clients I’ve worked with contact me when they are ready for their next move and repeatedly refer me to their friends, neighbors, family and colleagues. Residential real estate is a personal business requiring experience, knowledge and results. My clients speak volumes by passing along my information, and I remain proud to have earned their trust. My mission is to provide personal service and excellent representation throughout the purchase or sale of your property in order to achieve your real estate goals.

I believe that a successful real estate transaction is one in which both buyer and seller feel they were treated fairly and respectfully, resulting in an efficient, low stress, successful closing. A buyer wants to buy, a seller wants to sell, and my goal is to provide support wherever necessary – even when we are on opposite sides of the negotiations.

But, most importantly, my philosophy is best stated in my motto: Personal Relationships. Professional Results. My clients’ goals are achieved (whether buying or selling) because I am personally familiar with their potential family requirements, their work demands, community needs and any other considerations which may impact their decision making. My clients rely on me to accommodate their personal constraints and dynamics so as to not just facilitate the negotiation, inspection, appraisal, and closing processes, but to make the entire transaction as efficient and productive as possible. In addition responsiveness, kindness and care, I provide excellence through professional accreditations, local property knowledge, top notch vendor relationships, contract mastery, time sensitivity, and certified negotiation skills – all of which contribute to the end goal of a successful closing. I establish Personal Relationships, and I achieve Professional Results.

I’ve personally invested in and been involved with commercial real estate for over 20 years, during which time I segued into residential real estate. I have sold millions and millions of dollars in residential properties in the Tampa Bay area. Working full-time, I specialize in residential real estate throughout the Tampa Bay area and continue to be a proud member of a global network which benefits my clients – Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and Luxury Portfolio International®. My mission is to provide personal service and excellent representation throughout the purchase or sale of your property in order to achieve your real estate goals.

What My Clients Are Saying

  • Wendy quickly went from being our real estate agent to being our friend; a friend that always had OUR best interests at heart.
    Luis & Veronica G.
  • Wendy is about as close as you can get to a comprehensive pleasant real estate experience. She is detail oriented. She knows how to stage a home, and knows what aspects of your home need to be improved to ensure a quick sale. She is in tune with the market, and doesn't tell you what you want to hear when it comes to the realistic market value of your home. Wendy may be in the sales business, but she makes it clear that she understands your specific situation and will do everything she can to meet your needs/goals. If you are looking to sell your home quickly at the highest value that the market can support, Wendy is your realtor!
    Jack and Jennifer R.
  • Our family moves frequently for work, so we have gone through the buying/selling process many times. Our best experience, BY FAR, was with Wendy Ross. She was very accomodating about working long distance, over the phone, or with one spouse at a time. She really listened to our wants/needs and showed us dozens of properties...and ended up finding our 'perfect' house without us! If we end up moving again, we will definitely be using Wendy again!
    David & Becky K.
  • Wendy is personable and knowledgable. She makes you feel like you are her only client. I have and will continue to recommend her to anybody looking for their perfect home.
    Jessi F.

    Jeff & Kelly D.
