I love life, I love people and I love Tampa, so I feel very fortunate to be a part of the Tampa4u team in a profession that combines all my passions. My 12 years of extensive experience in Residential, Investment and Commercial real estate for both Sellers and Buyers in all of Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, Manatee and Sarasota counties have enabled me to successfully assist our clients in their real estate needs.
I have devoted my life in the Midwest as a wife, a mother of two accomplished daughters and as a registered nurse for 20 years, caring for medically dependent adults and children. My experience in nursing has carried through in my duties as a real estate agent in that I am patient and I devote all my efforts in the best interest of my clients during this very important process in their lives.

As an Investor, I can share my expertise in securing great deals on income producing properties the market has to offer.

" Our friend in Tampa. My wife and I have recently relocated to Tampa from New York City and are first time home buyers. For our first visit to Tampa, Irene had allocated two days for her time to tour homes in neighborhoods that we felt were right for us. Appointments were set up and a detailed itinerary was planned so that we could cover all the locations within two days. I was impressed with her knowledge with home buying and Tampa demographics. She quickly understood my concerns and requirements. Her recommendations narrowed my search to targeted locations that fit my requirements. I actually committed to a purchase that first day. We have been living here for three month and are extremely happy with our purchase. Irene is out go to person whenever we need advice or help on home maintenance or the Tampa social scene. "

" Irene Sandiego is an amazingly professional real estate agent. I sold my co- op apartment in NY and bought a house in Palm Harbor, Florida thanks to Irene's constant attention to detail. During the entire process, there were many obstacles caused by problems in NY. Irene tackled each one quickly, professionally, and successfully. Because of the continuous problems caused by the sale of my co-op, the deal almost fell through. Her positive approach to all of the problems had a calming effect on all parties which allowed the buying of my home in Palm Harbor to be successful. I highly recommend Irene as a Real Estate agent. "

Living in another state, it was difficult to frequently fly to Florida from NJ, Irene really listened to our wants and needs for a new home. She found all the right listings that would suit our needs, she was readily available to us for any showing of homes and answer any questions. We don't think that we would have been able to do it all without her. Irene is very knowledgeable about the reality in the Tampa area, professional and devoted to her clients.

*** Kelvin M
" Thank you for following up with us. Yes, Irene has been great so far. She's been very responsive and helpful in clarifying all my questions. I can only imagine that first time homebuyers (like my wife and I) require a bit more "hand holding" than experienced buyers, but she has made us feel very comfortable. In fact, I feel so much better now knowing that we have an aggressive and knowledgeable buyer's agent looking out for our interests, since I know most sellers have their own agents looking out for theirs.

" I first contacted Irene Sandiego on the recommendation of a friend. I visited Florida from my home in Canada, at which time Irene showed me a number of different properties. At my request, Irene kept me informed about appropriate purchase options based on my search criteria.

Irene worked tirelessly on my behalf, taking care of all details, including arranging for home inspection, suggesting property management services, etc. Irene was thorough,
honest, informative and highly reliable throughout the process. "
