What People Are Saying About Fred...
I want to tell you about my experience with Fred Brown and Flamingo realtors.
Recently I sold our house in Florida which was handled by Fred. I was surprised at how difficult real estate transactions have become and mine had an uncooperative HMO to deal with. Fred worked through all the kinks and the deal went through. Very happy and would use them again if needed.
