What My Clients Say
Stacy Haas-Goodwin…Talented. Dynamic. Exceedingly competent. We’ve worked with a number of realtors over the years and she is, hands down, the best.
It’s not because she is diligent to a fault – which she is; it’s not that she follows through on every detail leaving no stone unturned – which she does; and it’s not that she goes way beyond the extra mile — which she does. What makes Stacy a phenomenal realtor is that she is a wonderful person. Her integrity, honesty and work ethic are second to none. She will always do the right thing, of that there is no doubt.
We’ve worked with Stacy for the purchase of 2 homes and the sale of one, and have always found her to be positive, energetic and smart. Her background in interior design is especially helpful in staging homes to sell and envisioning the look of a new home.
We highly recommend Stacy Haas-Goodwin, and are proud to call her our friend. We are happy to answer any questions about her.
Maureen M. & Nancy G.
It is our immense pleasure to recommend Stacy Haas-Goodwin as a real estate agent if you are searching for a new home or selling your existing property.
We worked with Stacy in selling our home in Lakewood Ranch, FL. We found her to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality. Most importantly, Stacy brought in multiple offers and we were able to achieve the highest price per square foot for any property in our neighborhood.
We are pleased to recommend Stacy to anyone looking to buy or sell a home and if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice in real estate agents.

We decided to relocate from WI to the Lakewood Ranch community in Sarasota, FL. While we wand to build a new home, we did look at several existing homes. It was during this search that we happened upon Stacy Goodwin Haas – and what a blessing this turned out to be. We believe that due to her intimate knowledge of this area, our search immediately became more focused. Within a week we had a reservation on a lot with a builder in The Lake Club, a daunting prospect for us since we had never built a home. And here is where Stacy excelled. She has excellent working relationships with the SMR management of Lakewood Ranch and with our builder, Arthur Rutenberg Homes. We leaned on her heavily during the home design and permitting phases of the process, and she always made herself readily available. It was the same during the intense phase where we had to select finishes. We believe her training in interior design made her an incredible resource for us and made what could have been a stressful event quite manageable. Our closing will occur in about two months, and we are happy to report that we’ve been delighted with how our build has proceeded which is in no small part due to Stacy’s involvement. Overall we’ve been very impressed with how hard Stacy has worked at being our advocate and could not recommend her more highly.

We used Stacy Haas-Goodwin in both the purchase of our Florida home four years ago, and again in our recent sale. Stacy is a professional and easy to work with. In addition to the pleasure of dealing with Stacy on both the purchase process and the sale process, I think Stacy’s strength really comes out in the negotiation process. She is a strong negotiator and is likely to come out with the purchase price you want if you are a buyer, and the sale price if you are a seller. Stacy also has an excellent assistant, who helps with many of the details of the buying and selling process. They make a strong team that you will enjoy dealing with in accomplishing your goal.
Stacy Haas-Goodwin proved to be a diligent researcher, a creative and strong negotiator, a tirelessly and patient worker, a terrific analytical resource in helping us to evaluate a shifting and confusing market and a great help in getting us settled in our new community here in Sarasota. All of that in combination with an engaging personality makes her everything you could ever hope for in a first class real estate professional.”

I was thinking back and reflecting about you today as Michael and I had a meeting with Julia at the design center to pick out the pool stonework …your time spent was so appreciated and your honesty and energy sure made our experience so much more stress-free and fun! From the time you spent finding a home for us, to finding us the perfect lot and then representing us during the new construction process. You were a vital part of every decision we made. Thank you for your expertise and professionalism.
Dr. Emily Arsenault. Lakewood Ranch, FL
Immediately after meeting with Stacy, we knew she was the real estate agent for us. Her professionalism, preparedness, communication skills, marketing plan, and track record speak for themselves. We interviewed 3 Realtors, and the differing levels of service available was shocking. Stacy was honest and realistic about the length of time it would take to sell our $1,000,000+ home (she said the average time on the market was 8 months, it sold in 7 months) and was an excellent negotiator on our new home we purchased in the Lake Club. We highly recommend her and would only use Stacy for our Real Estate needs In the future.
Melissa, Lakewood Ranch
We want to thank Stacy for the excellent service she provided us in selling our home and buying another one in Lakewood Ranch. From the first contact to the last handshake with Stacy, the process went smoothly with no pressure normally added felt while selling a home. Stacy made us feel like we were her only clients by answering every email, text and phone call quickly and completing any request we had of her right away and with a smile. She looked out for us in every step of the process and showed her immense knowledge by making sure everything was correctly done. We will miss her, as she made us feel like we made a best friend. Thank you for making this transaction feel so easy.

It is hard to put into words just how wonderful we feel about Stacy Haas-Goodwin. We have wanted to sell our house for well over a year now. Unsuccessful the first time; Stacy convinced us to try a 2nd time. Within 41 days, our house was sold. Stacy not only sold our house quickly, but also for a great price. She was there every step of the way, proving feedback after “every” showing….something we had not experienced the first time it was on the market. The feedback was invaluable. It helped us to remain optimistic through the process. We were absolutely certain that if interest was shown, Stacy would pursue it until the end, just one example of her tenacious personality. Another impressive trait was Stacy’s confidence and her ability to handle objections. She seemed to have prepared herself for any objections when she first walked through the door of the house.
Our photos and virtual tour were done beautifully. Her interior design background helped us stage the house. Stacy was there to help us understand the documents. We could not give her enough praise and are so grateful she was recommended to us. If you want your house sold, Stacy is your realtor.
Linda and Christopher Lang
We did not know each other.
When I needed a realtor on short notice, you jumped.
When I needed a concentration of your time, you gave days.
When I needed knowledge, you were the book.
When I needed honesty, you were spontaneous.
When I needed a warrior, you wore paint.
When I needed a friend, you were already there.
During my lengthy life, I have known and worked with many realtors. If I had a nickel for each of them as good as you, I would have five cents.
You are the best, and I thank you!
Sincerely, Bob Gaston
We have dealt with many realtors over our fifty years of marriage and homes bought and sold. This year we purchased a home in another state and it was listed with Stacy Goodwin, a realtor like none we ever thought existed. Stacy was so helpful in so many ways that we could not possibly list them all. She was there for us every step of the way and found anything and everything we needed and more. She took care of us or had someone call for each and every thing we needed. Stacy was not only honest and oh so helpful with us, the buyers, but she also was faithful and true to her clients who were selling the house we wanted to purchase. Stacy has the highest level of INTEGRITY of any Realtor we have ever known.
We have the greatest respect, confidence, and appreciation for how wonderful she was in helping us make this transition. And now we’ve used her for two transactions!
Gilbert and Shirley Piazza, Pennsylvania
Thank you very much for your letter regarding my recent purchase of a home through your company. I have now worked with Stacy Haas-Goodwin on three purchases and three sales of properties since I’ve lived in Florida and I would like to say that she has proven to be a great asset to your Company and a very professional resource for me.
I will continue to think of Stacy when I have a real estate need in the future.
Sincerely, Donald D., Palmetto, FL
She got the job done in an excellent and timely fashion! Stacy was very professional and helped with any questions I had every step of the way. She has a very great personality and I believe that was a huge plus in trying to get my house sold. This was the first place I called and she was recommended by one of my neighbors. Excellent realtor to work with and I would recommend her to anybody…and she brought the Buyer as well!
Ron Wahl, Lakewood Ranch, FLMy wife and I recently purchased a house in Florida after spending some time researching properties on the internet.
We were very pleased and extremely impressed with how the whole process was handled. Not having been through this type of a purchase in the U.S. before, we were obliged to count on the honesty and integrity of the agent and the company that we were going to deal with. Upon calling Stacy Haas-Goodwin for information on a few of her listings, we were quite pleasantly surprised, she met with more than sufficient information and follow-up by her and after satisfactory due diligence which required extensive communications, all carried out very professionally and efficiently on the part of Stacy Haas-Goodwin. We decided to make an offer on her listing and we were well guided throughout the process by Stacy. When some issues presented themselves that would have been detrimental to the deal being carried out, Stacy was very adamant about finding a solution that would meet the needs of both parties, and all the negotiations were handled with careful thought and measured consideration for our concerns as international buyers. The care that was taken in the preparation of the documents showed top-notch professionalism and the closing process went without a hitch.
As residents of a foreign country, we were expecting that things would be much more difficult to bring to a close, but Stacy showed us that with the right people and a strong attention to detail and the needs of their clients, purchasing property internationally can be a rather pleasant task.
We are looking forward to our second purchase with Stacy in the very near future.
Donald & Monique B., Montreal, Canada
My wife and I would like to thank you very much for your extensive (and ultimately successful) efforts in finding us a house in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. Considering that we live 1500 miles from your area and had never stepped foot in Sarasota/Bradenton, we could not possibly have done this without you. Again, our deepest thanks and without a doubt we have and will continue to recommend you to our friends and family.
Todd A.Reybroek, Canada
I am writing in reference to Stacy Haas-Goodwin, who handled the sale of our last home. She is an extremely professional individual who can be entrusted with the “large scale negotiations” down to the minutest details. She was very lovely to work with and made the transaction go as smoothly as possible.
My husband and I certainly appreciated her level of class and professionalism, and we would enjoy working with her in the future.
Sara Jeffrey, St. Louis, MOStacy,
Thank you again for your time yesterday and your outstanding professionalism as always! You certainly set the bar! I think that you are Fabulous….. Total Pro!
Christine S., Realtor

Stacy, Thank You. You have been a real PRO. I truly appreciate working with you.
