Brian Helgemo and The Helgemo Team Compass consistently ranks among the top three agents by the Board of Realtors’ since 2005. Brian’s success is not surprising. Real estate is in his blood. His grandmother was among the first women Realtors in the state of Florida. Today, his uncle owns and operates the firm that his grandmother started all those years ago. “My dad practiced real estate law early in his career. He also owned and sold many properties through the years – both by himself and with his brothers,” he says. “It’s definitely a big part of the family legacy.”
Brian has an experienced, devoted team that is committed to making the process of buying and selling real estate smooth and seamless for customers.
His closest team member, though, is his wife, Bonnie. Bonnie is also a licensed Realtor who joined forces with Brian in 2005 to help manage and grow their thriving business. She negotiates contracts, troubleshoots and takes care of the needs of the team.
“Our team is like a well-oiled machine. We take tremendous pride in our superior communication and customer service,” says Brian. “Someone is always available to answer questions and provide guidance at every step of the process.”
Brian has weathered the many ups and downs of the real estate market since 2002. Belonging to the industry’s most powerful real estate coaching program in the country, which only the top one percent of Realtors belong to nationally, combined with his team’s commitment to staying on top of changes in the market, enables them to consistently deliver superior results for their customers.
“Our training keeps us advised on what’s coming next and how we can prepare for it and guide our customers through the changes,” he explains. “We also stay on top of the latest proven marketing techniques and strategies and check market statistics on a daily basis to keep our finger on the pulse.”
Over the past 18 years, Brian and his team have helped more than 2,400 families buy and sell property in this area. He has deep ties to this community and enjoys being able to serve the people who live here.
Brian and Bonnie Helgemo live in Punta Gorda with their two boys. His entire family also lives in Punta Gorda, including his parents and brothers Dr. Stephen Helgemo, a hand specialist, and Dr. Ben Helgemo, a pediatrician.
In 2018, The Helgemo Team bought and renovated the Waterproof Charts building in historic downtown Punta Gorda and became the founding agents for the local brokerage office of Compass–the fastest growing real estate company known for its cutting-edge technology and largest independent national brokerage. The Helgemo Team is also proud to announce their newest location in Sarasota to extend services beyond Charlotte, North Lee and Desoto Counties to now all of Sarasota County.
