This is what people say about us!

We have recently moved into our forever home thanks to Lisa and Thomas. They really listened to our needs and found us a home and neighborhood where can raise our kids in and hopefully enjoy have our grandkids visit someday. Thank you for all your hard work and treating us like VIPs during the whole experience!

Our realtor, Thomas, was extremely informative and helpful throughout the process. Even with our busy travel schedule, he was able to work with us to find the right house, in the right neighborhood for less than what we planned to spend. I would recommend Thomas and The Echea Group to anyone in the market to purchase or rent real estate in South Florida.


The Echea Group is extremely professional. My family and I were blessed to have them working so hard to sell my home in South Florida. It had been on the market for several years on and off without ever being able to sell until the Echea Group took it over. They are amazing! I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.


Thomas Echea was extremely helpful in touring the ft. Lauderdale area. He also went far beyond the call of duty in helping me determine the dimensions of the condo unit I was interested in by taking measurements of each room after I had returned home out of state. he demonstrated the utmost professionalism in aspects of being a real estate agent. I would highly recommend to anyone to choose him to work with.


Great experience. Casey from The Echea Group help me a lot to get the deal go thought and finally buy this property. Although there were some difficulties along the road, we make everything work out all on time. I received great advice and assistance from the whole team. Looking forward to fully moving in and make this place my home. Regards, Jacob


Great Realty group! They were very helpful in helping me in my long distance move. I am very satisfied with my current residence! They are very efficient in making sure you are 100% satisfied. Pleasant and very knowledgeable! I would highly recommend using The Echea Group if you are ever interested in moving!


Everything was on point, from the moment we said what we are searching for they fulfilled our needs completely. Next time when we want to buy a property we will contact them for sure. Everything was excellent.


I own my home today because of Thomas and Lisa's expertise, due diligence and attention to detail. When I say that, I mean this seriously. If not for them our deal would have never happened.

My life has changed forever with their help and it's not something to take lightly. They really were there for us. We are so happy and to say thank you is really not enough. I hope you have more and more success in the years to come Thomas and Lisa. Thank you so much for helping us in our transition in life! You are so much more then just realtors.

Thomas & Lisa Echea are the best agents I've ever worked with in South Florida. I have my home & investment properties that they dealt with. They're very professional & move quickly. They have taken care of at least 10 transactions for me over the past several years. I will only deal with Thomas & Lisa for all of my real estate sales & rentals.

Hello Lisa and Thomas: It was great working with you. Lisa you made the process run very smoothly - especially since I was out of town. I would definitely recommend your services to a friend! Thank you for all your help in making this transaction complete.


We mostly communicated through e-mail, but I was always given a quick response and renters were found quickly.

Thomas made the process less stressful and made things move smoothly and quickly.

I am very satisfied with The Echea Group and would highly recommend them to anyone interested in selling or renting.


Thomas and the entire Echea Group are incredible! We all know buying a house is one of the most stressful life events especially since we both have full time jobs and are planning a wedding. Thomas made this such an enjoyable and rewarding experience. As a first time home buyer, I had constant questions which were immediately answered and sometimes before I even had them. Thomas made himself readily available to us and found us a home where we will begin a family. Thomas and his entire team of hard-working, unrelenting, and efficient team will, without a doubt, surpass your expectations.

I cannot thank the Echea Group enough for helping me with my purchase.  They were fantastic during the negotiation process and they were committed to working with me until the closing took place.  Thomas was always quick to reply to my emails, text messages, and phone calls.  He knew the condo building better than any other agent out there.  He was familiar with which units were available, what recently sold, and which units were coming up for sale.  Thomas, Lisa, and their entire crew are an amazing team.  I feel privileged to have worked with them and I now consider them my friends.  I highly recommend them and I will definitely work with them again in the future.

Great team of realtors who are very good at what they do and are very in tune to what your needs in a home are. I use them several times and would recommend them to anyone, esp if you are looking for something in Broward County.


Thomas & Lisa are Wonderful Real Estate Agents. Both work hard to get the job done and are professional inside and outside of the office. Recently The Echea Group had an Open House at Nola Lofts Unit 1104 and I did attend. Upon walking in, I felt welcomed by greeters and wait staff, the music playing through-out the event had an great Upbeat feeling, the caterer’s were too die for, and Lisa & Thomas even had a chance to win prizes.

I would recommend Thomas & Lisa to anyone searching for a Real Estate Agent.


My fiance and I loved working with the Echea Group. They were extremely knowledgeable about the Fort Lauderdale area and surrounding neighborhoods, and helped us choose a townhouse that was both affordable, and in a great location. They helped us work with the landlord and negotiate a great price for our rental. I would gladly use them again for our next rental/purchase. Thanks Lisa and Thomas!


Very resourceful. Willing to spend many weekends and evenings viewing properties to suit my schedule. Responsive to calls, e-mails, and texts. Good experience all around.

My review and comment about Thomas and Lisa Echea, The Echea Group, differentiates from others as my dealings with Thomas and Lisa over the past several years has been on an international basis as I have resided overseas for the past 17 years. My additional unique situation has led Thomas and Lisa to have welcomed going the extra mile handling my affairs in strict confidence when required.

While owning a Penthouse in the Fort Lauderdale area Thomas and Lisa have taken care of my real estate needs the past several years with respect to renting the Penthouse. They also handled a [p]otential sale during one period of time. Never having met Thomas or Lisa until late 2014, I have been consistently treated with the highest degree of professionalism, respect and knowledge. Thomas and Lisa are very knowledgeable about the history and forthcoming allurements of the areas under their remit, which is vast and growing. You will have intelligent conversations about historical or future events that made or will make an area attractive for investment, for family living, for single living or young couples, or for other business development. Importantly too in the 21st century, Thomas and Lisa treated me with their unique personal touch; never being passed to another person who didn`t know me and the history of dealings, always responsive to off hours conversation given time zone differences, always handling required paperwork.

Thomas and Lisa truly want to get to know you and want to develop a long term trusting relationship. Indeed, pre-notifying them of my forthcoming visit I was invited to their office which turned into a very warm and friendly chat including tea, which happened to be the first time we met in person.

Business in real estate remains tricky in this post real estate bubble. Having relationships with Thomas and Lisa built on mutual trust and where you feel like family is precisely what is needed in the next decade.

We are writing to express our pleasure with the Echea Realty Group, who represented us in the selling of our single-family home Hollywood.

Thomas Echea guided us through the entire process, from dealing with tenants to difficult contractors, and the handling of multiple offers on our house. We credit Thomas Echea who knows the market inside and out. We never could have sold our home without him. All in all it was a smooth, stress-free home-selling experience.

We have bought and sold multiple properties in Hollywood, and never had we had such a pleasurable experience. Shawn Levenberg added his professionalism winsome personality to assist us. He was very hands on; replying to our calls, emails and questions swift and promptly. Even though we were living in a different country and working with an 8 hour time difference, Shawn was always there for us to answer our questions and check on the property whenever the need arose. 

To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with the Echea Group and their expertise and service. Everyone looking to buy or sell a house in South Florida should use them.

Thomas was on point for us and we knew he had our best interest a top priority. We looked at many places and ended up with one of the 1st units we saw, and when price dropped, he swooped in and secured it for us.


The Echea Group was a pleasure to deal with. Thomas and Lisa were not only knowledgeable and pleasant but they got the deal done. Good work! We are happy clients!


I had an excellent experience working with the Echea Group. Thomas was always very professional, knowledgeable about the area and patient! Whenever I wanted to look at a new listing he was able to set up a meeting ASAP. More importantly, Thomas is definitely a people person so I felt very comfortable working with him and never felt pressured to just get the first house I viewed. I would absolutely recommend the Echea group for all of your real estate needs!


Lisa and Thomas of The Echea Group made our first home purchase an experience my wife and I will never forget. Its not easy looking for a home during the second and third trimesters of your wife's first pregnancy (especially during a SoFL summer) but Lisa and Thomas hung in there with us. They both have extraordinary levels of patience. When in came time to closing they were there to help us through it all. All of the crazy "what ifs" and "how abouts" I sent their way were answered logically and consicely. Thank you Lisa and Thomas for making what could have been a scary moment into one that was fun and less stressful than expected.


The word "excellence" defines my entire experience buying my first home with our wonderful agent Misty, of/with The Echea Group. Everyone's teamwork exceeded all of my expectations in every way. I was expecting the process to be more challenging, however the very opposite was gladly the case.   We feel so blessed and thankful to have had such excellent guidance every step of the way, and Misty/Echea made sure to personally assist our specific needs in the most thoughtful, time-saving, and effective ways possible. An "A+ 100%" wonderful and fruitful experience. Thank you Misty and Echea, may many other South Floridians be as fortunate to work with you as we were! So friendly and trustworthy as well! :)

We purchased a vacation home in Fort Lauderdale/Oakland Park area. Thomas was extremely patient and took us to see a number of properties in different areas. He helped us find one that was perfect for our needs. Thomas knows the market from both a sale and potential rental perspective. From a processing perspective, He and Lisa made the processing of the paperwork much easier. When the seller's agents and loan officers became difficult, they were able to intercede and remove the barriers. This is our fourth property that we purchased over the years. It was handled extremely well and with a great amount of professionalism. I really appreciate what they did for us.

It was such a pleasure working with Thomas and Lisa to find my personal residence. They are hard working, devoted, and very knowledgeable about the real estate market.They are highly skilled in negotiating. They are very easy to work with and they listen to the needs of their clients. They know the importance of timing and they are very expeditious in fact finding. I enjoyed my experience so much that I am currently working on a project with Lisa and Thomas. I highly recommend these two professionals that have drive, integrity, and get the job done.

Rosalee Suskind-Fruchter

I had a contract on my condo that fell through and I was really bummed! Thomas and Lisa were very encouraging and pushed forward. I always appreciate the updates on "action" on the condo!


Writing this review I feel like helping people, who like me didn't know where to start their home search, or who to call, If you need a real estate agent, who will be knowledgeable, professional, always available, you must call Thomas and Lisa. Your home search will be in the right hands. You will be treated with respect, having the feeling you have a friend on your side. If things go wrong, Thomas will stay calm under pressure, I am writing his name, because he was the one, working with my husband and me in our home search/. Now the painters are working in our new dream home, I wanted to write these lines, thank them and help others still trying to find a place to call home.

Ani & Vladimir Bakalov

Thomas and Lisa were a pleasure to work with in finding our second home in Pompano Beach, FL. I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in purchasing a home in Southeast Florida.


Very professional and strong ethical standards and great at representing a landlord in rental transactions! They have represented me in several lease transaction. Good negotiation skills and very responsive to emails and voice messages. I highly recommend them. I look forward to using them in the future.
