Bonnie Camp Testimonial
My wife and I were introduced to Bonnie Camp, John R Wood Realtor, by friends of ours who had used Bonnie for purchases and sales of a number of their condo and then home transactions in Naples. They said Bonnie was bright, knew the Naples marketplace for all types of properties, and locations, and most importantly, was honest and straight forward. So needless to say we were more than happy to meet and work with Bonnie when it was time to sell our first Naples condo.
Since meeting Bonnie we have sold our first condo, bought and sold our second condo and purchased a teardown and built the home of our dreams. Every transaction we have been involved in, Bonnie has been our consultant, advisor, sounding board and our relationship has also turned into a friendship my wife and I will cherish forever.
My wife Mary is a designer and has worked with a number of clients rehabbing condos, and homes, throughout Naples. She and Bonnie have become the Thelma and Louise of Naples real estate. The two of them love looking at real estate and view all different types of properties when we were looking for our second, larger, condo. We knew where we wanted to be on Gulfshore Blvd North so Bonnie worked tirelessly to find a rehab for Mary. When we settled on the property we wanted, Bonnie advised us on the price to offer, negotiated with the seller's broker and we were able to close, over a weekend, on the price we offered. Bonnie had us so prepared with comps that it made the process easy and effortless.
After rehabbing, and living in, our second condo for 4 years we decided we wanted to build a home, which has been my wife’s lifelong dream. We spoke to Bonnie about what we were thinking and off she went. She quickly surveyed the market, came up with what she felt was a very attractive selling price for our condo and along with my wife’s help, found property for us to buy. Bonnie brought in Realtors from around Naples for a showing of our condo and after a week we had multiple bids at a price that I could only dream of. We sold the condo, again effortlessly, and bought our tear down over the same weekend.
Thanks to Bonnie, and my wife, we are living in the most elegant, fun home, in the perfect neighborhood in the Moorings. Bonnie has been our partner over the last 12 years and we couldn’t have found a more perfect, experienced, knowledgeable real estate professional.

Bonnie Camp has been the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. From our first introduction until after closing she has been exceptional!
Bonnie started with conversations to pinpoint exactly what we were looking for. This helped both her and us understand where we wanted to be. We knew we wanted to be in Pelican Bay, ( Bonnie’s specialty) but Bonnie knew what areas and what buildings were best. It was so reassuring to know she would not let us do the wrong thing. When we found the right place, Bonnie worked with the seller’s agent to make sure every single detail was taken care of. She was present for inspections and followup inspections. Bonnie is extremely professional and yet so lovely and easy to work with. My husband and I would highly recommend her to anyone lucky enough to work with her.

My wife and I first met Bonnie in 2014, and since then she has become a good friend and neighbor. We first met her when, out of frustration with our then real estate agent in Naples who seemed incapable of understanding what we wanted, we asked other friends for recommendations. Bonnie’s name emerged from that process, and we have been delighted with the result. After a few days spent in intensive visiting of several properties, Bonnie had identified. We located an ideal property for us, and with her guidance was able to buy it at a good price.
Subsequently, she has assisted us in locating an investment property. She later even helped locate a tenant for it, even though she was not being compensated. In short, Bonnie has been an excellent realtor and good friend. We would certainly plan to use her again if a need arises.

We are so grateful for Bonnie’s expertise and patient help in finding just the right place for us and our five children. She knows everyone and everything about the Naples market and took the time to really listen to our needs. And her service didn’t stop when we closed. She worked with the adjacent golf course to facilitate the removal and trimming of select overgrown trees to open up a previously hidden water view.
Since we were up north, she cheerfully went to the condo and directed the landscapers from our unit. The result was stunning, enhanced our enjoyment of the condo, and instantly increased our property value. We were incredibly impressed she took the time to do that. To this day, if we need anything, Bonnie is always happy to share contact information for reliable resources who are as trustworthy as she is. We couldn’t be happier.

We’ve used Bonnie for 3 separate real estate transactions in Pelican Bay, and that alone tells you we highly value her skills and local knowledge. Bonnie is honest and straightforward while bringing a wealth of information and thoughtful negotiation ideas and tactics. Her integrity, relationships, and connectivity in the real estate community opens doors and encourages productive discussions. Above all, Bonnie wants the best for her clients (personally and professionally) and works tirelessly to deliver it for them.

“ Bonnie Camp represented us in an unusual transaction that had to be very carefully conceived because the seller was himself a recent buyer of the property and was not sure if he really wanted to give it up in a resale. There was no other realtor in the transaction, so Bonnie had to use her knowledge and skills to broker a deal that was fair to both parties while achieving the objectives of both us and the seller. Her listening skills, attention to detail, coupled with her warm and personable style of presenting herself, enable Bonnie Camp to achieve what many others in her field would not be able to do. Bonnie is a professional and now a good friend who I would recommend to anyone on either side of a real estate transaction in the Naples area.”

"Bonnie listened to our needs and was scrupulous about discussing price and resale issues. She generously provided volumes of information about a wide range of issues that guided our decisions and expectations. Her unique ability to gather in detail about our favorite ways to relax and socialize and her extensive knowledge of the area really made a difference. We always felt she was focused on making a match, not just a sale. Bonnie’s flexibility in scheduling and meticulous preparation ensured that even our limited time was very productive. Her easy style of working with financial representatives and other agents, along with her obvious respect for sellers, made the contract negotiation process both painless and successful. Months after closing, she still checks in with us to make sure things are going well. We are absolutely convinced that Bonnie was key to our finding a home that is perfect for us on all counts!

"When we met with Bonnie to discuss listing our townhouse, the housing market was in a slump & there were 22 models exactly like ours for sale in our community. Bonnie counseled us about pricing competitively, presenting our interior & exterior furnishings to their best advantage, maintaining flexibility in showing our place, and when & how to negotiate. She met face to face with agents who were showing our property in order to promote its many pluses, bonded with the ultimate selling agent, found reasonably priced, competent legal representation for our closing, & somehow managed all of this within three months' time. Bonnie was delightful to work with & was totally professional. We highly recommend her services."

"Bonnie shouldered the stress and we reaped the success!! She handled both a sale and purchase for us in Pelican Bay that were negotiated and closed within three months of each other in a busy and stressful market. Her professionalism and personal accountability in all aspects of these transactions are why she stands out as among the very best in Naples."
