  I can’t say enough great things about Manuela. I found her through military Facebook groups where she was recommended as the top agent in Tampa for VA loans. But she is more than just our VA friendly realtor, she is our home buying warrior. She never made decisions for us but she gave us the tools to find the home that was perfect for us. Her honesty was invaluable and her insights on neighborhoods, renovations and appraisals, well, we couldn’t have found our new home without them. And her diligence and suggestions helped us get a super fast closing, 3 weeks! For anyone who has spent a month in a hotel with kids and pets, a fast closing is a godsend. In addition to helping us (and the seller!) with home inspectors, title agencies and pre-closing repairs, Mannie was there for us weeks after closing and during her own family’s vacation to assist us in deliberations with the home warranty company. If you have ever dealt with a home warranty company, you know the stress involved, it’s almost like being in court and dealing with litigation. Mannie gave me straightforward expectations and made phone calls to make sure our home repairs were on track. I expect to stay in touch with mannie over the years and when I am ready for my next home-buying adventure I hope she’ll be there to fight for me once again.

  Even though this was the hardest home buying experience we could ever imagine, Mannie was the part that held it together and made it happen! We came down 1 day, she scheduled 20 + viewings for us last minute, worked every and any angle to get us the house we wanted. Not only on her side, but for the realtor who was over the clients buying our home as well since it was contingent on our sale. All in all it was an amazing experience watching it all come together. Mannie was fantastic throughout the entire process. We found our home in one day and moved in a month later. We highly recommend Mannie, she is fantastic.

  If I could, I would give Mannie 10 stars! She and her team are absolutely amazing. I met her on Facebook when we were months out pcsing from Hawaii to Florida. It was a 6 hour time difference and she went out of her way to assist us in purchasing our home a couple years ago. Just recently it was time for us to pcs out of Florida and after discussing our options, selling was the way to go. Again, Mannie was amazing. Her instincts were on point and helped us get an amazing offer.

  It's PCS season and everybody is looking for a great realtor! Manuela Woodrum is the one you need to call!! I apologize in advance for this long review but I just have to. You've been amazing Mannie and simply the best in Tampa house hunting aid! Mannie gots your back with infrared sensors, ballistic-grade armor, and auto-fire to cover your six…figuratively speaking of course. Rare to find someone that works for you and not against you in this business. A realtor NOT after her own needs. She was professional and thorough in all she did and never left us out of the loop. She is a treasure trove of information and knows the Tampa housing market like the back of her hand. We did our homework and then started our quest for a house in March of 2017. Happy to report we just closed on our home with 3wks to spare before departure. This was our first home buying experience and I couldn’t have asked for a better guide/expert. Being an active duty family and hubby still having to come home to write papers (like many others) for online classes, family time was our #1 priority. We wanted something close to MacDill and Mannie got us within 6min of the main gate. Future Home Realty rocks (the company she works for)! If you are willing to accept straight-up honesty, shaken not stirred, then you will get a realtor that will be receptive to your questions day or night and protect you from rookie land-mine mistakes. She has tons of clients, but it didn’t feel she treated us as leftovers and almost seemed we were the only clients being helped. This goes to show how organized, knowledgeable and prompt Mannie is. If anyone is looking for THE BEST, look no further than this post. So happy with our end result. Our first friend in Tampa! Cheers to Mannie!

  Contacted her 2 years ago about retiring and buying a house in Florida. She kept in touch the whole time and when the time came we told her what we were looking for and after a couple of showings she found us our dream home. She made the house buying process real easy, negotiated for the best deal and was always there to answer our questions. Buyer always comes first and with Manuela those are not just words, she really means it. If we ever thinking about selling or buying a different house we'd only choose Manuela as our Real Estate Agent again. Too sum it all up.... she is awesome!!!!

  I wanted to give a public shout out and thank you to Manuela Woodrum, my wife and I moved to Tampa in May last year and found our dream home in Palm Harbor thanks to Mannie, she spent a great deal of time listening to what we were looking for and even more time searching for us, she taught us a great deal about the market in the Tampa area (more than I would have learned by renting first and choosing and area down the road) as a transitioning military member it really helped ease the normal stress of retirement. Mannie thank you again you have a client for life! You really are a great realtor. — feeling thankful.

  Good Morning! I just want to give a shout out to Manuela Gass Woodrum. Y'all, she is one amazing and honest realtor!! As we move into our rental this morning (yes, rental) I am so thankful for everything she did for us. She worked so hard to find a perfect home for our family and was brutally honest with us when things weren't in our favor. At the end of our search, purchasing a home just wasn't in the cards for us, and while she knew she would not get a dime if we rented she knew it was best for our situation and even encouraged us to go that route and still fought to make sure we were taken care of. I cannot recommend her enough! Mannie is the REAL DEAL, a simply amazing person!!

  My husband and I could not be more pleased with Manny as our realtor. Her professionalism was obvious from our very first meeting. Manny gave us excellent guidance regarding pricing, timing, staging and showing of our home. We were under contact in less than 48 hours! She kept us informed through the entire sale process. As a military family we have moved many times, and this was by far our smoothest and easiest home sale. We would certainly recommend her to any friends or family needing a realtor in the Tampa Bay area.

3/1/2016 08:10 PM

  I am an experienced real estate investor. My last house was NOT my first! Mannie is a a PRO! When I was willing to pay, she said NO! She saved me thousands of dollars! Mannie has a genuine nature to want to help people. She is the perfect person to help you find your next home. I will never buy with anyone else in Florida! You can't top the best! Mannie is the best!

  With a pending cross-country job relocation, we needed to work with a stellar realtor to sell our home and that was Manny in every way. She guided us through the process of staging and listing our house for the best presentation and appropriate price. We quickly had interest and offers and an accepted contract. Manny's expertise is bar none. She excels at communication and guidance and is very responsive to phone calls, emails and questions. We can't thank her enough for helping us through a stressful life change with her calm and supportive expertise. We highly recommend her whether you're buying or selling a home.

  Although my fiancé has owned before, this was my first home buying experience. He worked with Manny to purchase a previous home and insisted he work with her again. Manny made the experience much less stressful and overwhelming than I anticipated for such a big purchase. She was very flexible with our busy schedules and made great use of our time, which was very important to us. Manny is an expert in her field and was able to help us envision things as well as point out red flags. There were a few times that we became frustrated and thought we would never find "our" home, but with Manny's help, we kept on, and found a home we love and are so excited to make our own. She responds to calls and emails very quickly, is never without an answer, and truly puts you at ease from start to finish. Her partnerships with other professionals and recommendations aided in the behind the scenes processes going smoothly. We truly can't say enough about the wonderful home buying experience we had with Manny and her team.

  Our first buying experience was with Manny. We wanted a home in South Tampa, needed to buy fast, and were on a budget that limited our options. Even with all this, Manny was able to secure us a home that meet our needs, at a price that we could afford. Since 2,000 characters would fall short in fully explaining how professional and hardworking she was... I will simply say this. One year later we love our home and community. We have one of the nicest models, at lowest price per sq foot of any home (in our community) that was purchased in the last two years. AND, we were handed the keys to our new home 28 days after initially meeting Manny. THOSE are results...

  My family and I had an amazing experience with Manuela. As first time home buyers, she endured a smooth process from start to finish. Manuela wasn't out looking for profit, trying to get our budget to stretch that extra little bit just for a few more dollars in her pocket. Instead, she listened to what we were looking for and helped guide us on the path to finding or perfect home. When the first one fell through, she and her team fought to make it work and put in the extra effort to get us a new home in time when it didn't. We highly recommend her for first time and experienced buyers and sellers.

  My husband and I purchased our very first home with the help of Manuela and the experience could not have been better. She was on top of everything, always very professional and courteous, and helped us get an awesome deal in no time. We are very impressed with her entire team and have been recommending her to friends and family. I would not hesitate working with her again as she made the entire experience very positive for us.

  We are a military family that has decided to ETS in Tampa. We are consolidating our real estate holdings from elsewhere to Tampa. We have bought two homes with Mannie this year. On the first home she saved us $20k! I was ready and willing to write a check, but she said, "No, let me work on this!" Her loan folks helped us with that sale as well. It was the smoothest closing I have ever had. I couldn't be happier with his end of the business. Mannie isn't just my realtor, she is my real estate partner. Her honesty has kept me from wasting time on more than one property. I value her opinion as much as that of my husband's when it comes to making a home purchase. As we move more of our real estate holdings from KY to the Tampa area, I would never think of using anyone else. She is my real estate ROCK! Thanks for all you do, Stephanie

  Mannie far exceeded our expectations of a Realtor. She was instrumental in our both selling and buying a home in 2011. We had contacted several other realtors prior to finding Mannie, and not one of them followed through or displayed any energy or enthusiasm. As soon as we started working with Mannie, the difference between her work ethic and what we had previously experienced was amazing. Mannie is incredibly knowledgeable about the industry and area, and spent time getting to know us and what we were interested in so she could use our time most effectively by only showing us homes she felt were a good match for us. We put her through her paces, as we saw many homes before we found "the one". She never made us feel as though we were being too picky or taking too much of her time throughout the long process. Once we landed on the home, she was instrumental in connecting us with a great mortgage broker and facilitating the lengthy process of negotiating and closing the deal. We found our dream home through Mannie’s help. A note on selling our home in a tough market: Mannie set realistic expectations with us as far as what the market would bear, and while the listing price was less than we'd hoped it was the right price and resulted in a sale within 3 months of listing. Mannie did a great job of marketing our home and getting the word out amongst her peers, which ultimately resulted in the sale. I suspect without Mannie’s expert guidance our home would still be sitting on the market! I can't recommend Mandy highly enough. She is professional, responsive, knowledgeable, tenacious, and always follows through on her word. She is also a lot of fun to work with!

  If you’re looking for a real estate agent who epitomizes integrity, commitment and excellence, then I recommend Manuela Woodrum (Mannie). Words cannot describe how lucky we were to work with Mannie. She was such a pleasure to work with and helped us find the perfect home for our family. We purchased our home from another state and were guided the whole way through this crazy process with such care and professionalism. Mannie understood the importance of getting the house we needed and followed up on ALL angles possible to ensure that we would be able to attain our new home. She kept us informed, educated us on the process, and continued to follow up with us even when she was on vacation in Germany ! She is such a kind soul. Mannie and her entire team give 110%. They are extremely detailed and patient. I really can't imagine getting any better service than this. I can’t thank her enough.

  Words cannot be put into how much we appreciate all of Mannies help. We were in Hawaii looking to purchase our first home when we moved to Florida. At first we were working with an agent for a couple months, then came across Mannie through Facebook. After speaking with Mannie for even a few days I was so comfortable and felt like I could trust her because she was so straight forward. So we decided to go with Mannie as our realtor, and let me tell you that It was the best decision we made. Being first time homebuyers, we knew absolutely nothing and she literally held our hand through it all. Even with the time difference (we were 6 hours behind) she would respond nearly immediately to all questions or concerns. Even at times when I would forget about the time difference and would text her late. When problems arose with our pcs to Florida, we made a last minute decision to come view homes for a few days and she made time for us. And in just a couple of days we were able to find home we liked and get under contract! Even with her busy schedule, she always made us feel like we were most important. Through the whole process we hit a few bumps on the road (as expected when buying a home) but she took care of us. When I say she held our hand, she literally guided us though every step of the way. I absolutely love her passion in what she does. She is honestly one of the most kind hearted, hard working person I have ever met. All in all, Mannie is an amazing realtor and an even more amazing person. She will definitely be our go to realtor.

  I can't even emphasize enough how amazing Ms. Mannie has been for our family! She worked to the bone for us even though things weren't always going in the right direction due to negotiations etc. (not on our end). Just to put how hard she works in perspective, she was on vacation in Germany visiting her family she rarely gets to see and she always would keep us in the loop about every house she came across/researched until the late night/early morning because keep in mind that Germany is 6 hours ahead of U.S. eastern time. She could have just pushed us on the back burner because she definitely deserved to get some down time and relax with her family, but that's not Mannie, she gives 110% at all times no matter what. She even had someone on her team go look at houses for us when she was out of the country because at the time we were residing in Louisiana. Mannie and her team were on point compared to the other teams I have encountered in my lifetime of buying houses. She has lived in this area for years and knows all the ins and outs of the surrounding areas as well. If you are a military inbound I would highly recommend Ms. Mannie and Co. to take care of you! I cannot stress that enough! Best service you could ask for! Thanks Mannie! We will keep in touch, your friends Nick, Ashley, Brady & Kennadi N.

  My husband and I would like to thank you for all of your help in finding our lovely new home. You were extremely patient with us as we looked at property after property in Pinellas County. You never once made us feel pressured or rushed. You made sure that we took our time and made the right decision despite (at times) tense negotiations. We appreciate your honest manner and many times... relied on your opinion about the properties we were looking at. As a matter of fact we still contact you and ask for homeowner advice. All of your extra effort and knowledge helped in our decision to finally put down roots and purchase our perfect family home. There so many great things to say about you, Mannie, and we hope you share this with others. A “Thank You” is simply not enough for all of the assistance and expertise you gave and continue to give us. It was a pleasure working with you and we are thrilled to have met a great agent and made such a good friend in the real estate market. Kind regards, Jamie and Major Timothy B.

  Mannie was our buying agent on a recent purchase in Dunedin. She was so helpful working with us from a distance. She sent us videos and video-chatted to show listings.

  Dear Manuela, I want to thank you for all of the hard work you have done for my family in helping us purchase a home. You stuck with us in a seven year search and you even helped resolve the strange and unexpected issues that came up long after the sale, even though your role was finished. You have been more helpful than anyone in any service industry in my experience. I would absolutely refer all of my friends and family to you and if I am in need of selling my home in the future I would definitely use you again. Thank you so much, Dionna D.

  We had the pleasure of meeting Mannie on our move from Texas to Tampa. From the very first email and phone call, you were able to tell that Mannie was motivated, listened, and asked questions to guide us toward assisting with our home selection/search. Mannie is very studious, prompt and a wonderful person. Her knowledge of real estate is beyond comparison. She explained everything we asked and things we did not. Once, we found our home; she had a mortgage broker that processed our loan in no time....really just a little over two weeks!!! We could not thank her enough for all her efforts. I highly recommend Mannie for all of your real estate matter."

  We met Mannie over the internet a year before we were scheduled to arrive in the Tampa area! She worked hard for us the entire time and through every bump in the road she was professional and diligent in making us happy ! When we finally found a home she stayed on the loan team and builders non-stop to ensure we were happy and comfortable with what was going on. Even during our closing when unexpected money circumstances arose she stepped right up and went above and beyond to make the closing happen that day! The process to buy our new home was long, tiring and stressful but none of that was due to Mannie! She constantly stayed in touch with us via text, calls, emails and Facebook! Any time of day or night Mannie was there for us! Even now after we are in our home she still answers questions for me. I am proud to have had her as our Realtor and love the fact that I gained a new friend out of the process as well! If you want a Realtor that does more then just show you some homes and leave you with the hard stuff then pick Mannie… she takes on the full load and won’t back down until you are 100 % happy !

  I have known Manuela for a few years and had always known she was a Realtor. When it came time for my husband and I to purchase our first home together, I called Manuela Manuela took the time to find out all we needed from a home. Our list was very different than most as my husband is in a wheelchair. We were using a VA mortgage and there were lots of limitations that we had to work within. We needed a home that we could easily remodel using a VA grant. We needed ceilings a certain height, no carpet in the bedrooms, an open floor plan...the list went on! Our first home search went well, although we didn't find THE home. Manuela was there every step of the way making sure that our loan application was going smoothly. We hit many hiccups with the loan application due to past divorces, but Manuela kept her cool and walked us through all we needed to do. Manuela was VERY patient as we looked at about 15 homes. Many were over-priced, and Manuela diligently went through comps and looked at which homes had upgrades, what types of upgrades, the location and so on. Manuela spent a long time compiling a worksheet so we knew what we were paying for with each home. We liked a couple of homes and even put a bid on one...which we didn't get. My husband and I were disappointed, but Manuela didn't give up. She is very resourceful. When we couldn't find any homes we liked on the listings, Manuela called some realtor friends that she knew. They had a pocket listing and Manuela arranged for us to look at it. We fell in love with the house as it had all we were looking for in a home. The closing process went super smooth. Manuela gave us a list of all the things we needed to do next and was there any time of any day to answer our questions. She showed up to look over the home inspection, she helped get quotes for insurance, she showed up on closing day to make sure the previous owners left the home in perfect condition, she even showed up to help us move!!! Manuela goes above and beyond in every aspect of helping you find the perfect home. Her customer service is second to none, her passion is evident. If you are looking to purchase a home, let Manuela help you. You will not regret it!

  Manuela Woodrum (Mannie) is an outstanding agent! We were living in Spain when we found her online. This was my first home purchase and I was clueless. But thanks to Mannie we were able to learn the ins and outs of purchasing a home. She was there for every question and I really appreciated her candid and honest approach. She makes you feel like you are part of her family. We were able to find our perfect home, make an offer and close in just over 30 days, thanks Mannie.

  Manuela Woodrum went the extra mile, and another ten, to help my wife and I find a new home. She sat down and listened to our needs and wants, and helped us find exactly what we wanted. We chose to have a brand new house built since it was going to be a few months before our actual move. Since we lived out of Florida, Mannie made sure to Skype with us at least once a week, at our soon-to-be new home, while it was being built! We knew she had to have other clients, but she made us feel like we were her only one. During the Skype sessions we noticed a window wasn't being built where it should be, and Mannie instantly went to the builder and had them correct it, and send us photos of the correction. The builder also sent us weekly updates with photos and recorded videos, but it was Mannie who visited the lot every week to show us, live, the progress. I wouldn't say we received "excellent service" because it was way more than that. She treated us like family. We could text or email her anytime, and get a response very quickly. She makes sure EVERY question and concern you have is satisfied. Her reputation and professionalism is well known as she is also a regular Real Estate Expert that the Tampa Tribune and Tampa Bay Times use as a source for their articles. What ever dream you have for your home, Mannie will take it on as her own and will work as hard or harder than you would, to make it happen. Don't look for any other agents, as you have truly found the best one there could possibly be. If the Marine Corps were to do real estate, we would ask Mannie to be our drill sergeant. No joke. -Andrew A. USMC.

  Mannie, we cannot thank you enough for all your hard work, honesty and advice when we were Selling our home. You were really there for us. We have only worked with one other Realtor before and we must say that we thought most Realtors would be stuffy, impersonal, uncaring but you were the complete opposite from the moment we met! Not only were you extremely professional and very knowledgeable but you made the whole experience easier and you had great advice when it came to dealing with buyers and offers on our home. You went above and beyond for us, and we know that we don’t hesitate to recommend you to all our friends and family that are thinking of buying/selling. Thank you!

  Manuela goes above and beyond what you would expect from your normal realtor. I first came in contact Manuela over a year ago when we first found out we would be moving to the area. Instead of putting me off like several other realtors in the area did, because we were so far out from our actual move date, she took the time to really get to know our wants and needs and set up a website for us to view the options available in our price range even a year out. As our move became closer she made sure to stay in constant contact with me to update our preference and areas we were interested in living. Manuela is very knowledgeable of the area and really listened to our concerns and wants in a property. Over a couple weeks with her help we were able to narrow our selections from about 100 houses down to just about 6 houses. Not only was Manuela knowledgeable of the areas but also really paid attention to small details in property listings that I would have even given a thought to. When our move was finally here Manuela made the process so easy for us. We had a very short amount of time to view properties, and put in potential offers as my husband had to go out of the country shortly after we got there. Manuela was quick to set up all our showings the first weekend we were there. During the showings she was very hands on and knowledgeable and put our minds at ease as not only was she showing the properties to us she was also keeping an eye out for any potential issues that could arise. When we finally decided on a home the offer process was smooth and easy thanks to Manuela's knowledge of the current market and her resources. We had an offer put in, countered and accepted within one day. This was our second home purchase and I must say the best experience out of the two because of Manuela. You are never just a client to her. She makes you feel as if you've been friends a long time and is always looking out for your best interest. I would definitely recommend Manuela to anyone coming to the area that wants top notch service :)

  Manuela goes above and beyond any expectation you may have in a Real Estate Agent. You leave her message and she really does call you right back. You send her and email asking questions and for specific documentation and she will send you everything you have asked for and even stuff that you did not think to ask for. Manuela always showed up on time for all our appointments. She knew exactly what type of neighborhood we were looking for and which ones to avoid. Manuela is very knowledgeable in all aspects of buying and selling homes. She not only helped us buy our new home, but also helped us sell our last home. We had tried out several agents before Manuela and had never found one that had the whole package (IE: knowledgeable in all aspects of selling/buying, dependable, caring and a good personality). This all may sound unbelievable, but it is totally true and the only way to become a believer is to give her a try and then write me to say how right I am about Manuela!

  I met Manuela at an Open House that I just happened to stop by. Never have went to one and in the market for what I thought would be a condo type place. There was something about her that made me trust her when she said I can look for other properties! She did and she showed them to me, but I just happened to come across a buy owner home that I was curious about. Never thinking a single family for my son and myself, she made a few calls and set up a date to see the place. When I walked in I knew it was my home. The home as a "single mom" I wanted to raise my son in. Manuela negotiated everything, even let me walk through more times than most because I wanted to be sure. But the thing about her , is once you spend a few moments with her, you realize she is genuine. Like the rest of us who work for our money, she is not out to steer you wrong. She was there every step and has held a great place in my heart! To this day I live in my home ,remarried and my son has a home to call his own. I thank God for my home and her for making our dreams come true.

  Manuela and I go way back...to 1989 Darmstadt, Germany. I was stationed there as a US Army Housing Manager. The job was to find homes for the troops and their families in a severely overburdened private rental housing market. The one person I could count on the rescue me was Manuela. More than any other Realtor, she supported me almost daily in my efforts in housing 'my' troops. Families had to stay State-side til the soldier was housed...so you can imagine the intense stress to git-er-done. If I had an 'emergency case', who do you call? Manuela. I could ALWAYS count on her to find 'just one more'. I'll always be grateful for Manu's help, always...

  Mannie far exceeded our expectations of a Realtor. She was instrumental in our both selling and buying a home in 2011. We had contacted several other realtors prior to finding Mannie, and not one of them followed through or displayed any energy or enthusiasm. As soon as we started working with Mannie, the difference between her work ethic and what we had previously experienced was amazing. Mannie is incredibly knowledgeable about the industry and area, and spent time getting to know us and what we were interested in so she could use our time most effectively by only showing us homes she felt were a good match for us. We put her through her paces, as we saw many homes before we found "the one". She never made us feel as though we were being too picky or taking too much of her time throughout the long process. Once we landed on the home, she was instrumental in connecting us with a great mortgage broker and facilitating the lengthy process of negotiating and closing the deal. We found our dream home through Mannie’s help. A note on selling our home in a tough market: Mannie set realistic expectations with us as far as what the market would bear, and while the listing price was less than we'd hoped it was the right price and resulted in a sale within 3 months of listing. Mannie did a great job of marketing our home and getting the word out amongst her peers, which ultimately resulted in the sale. I suspect without Mannie’s expert guidance our home would still be sitting on the market! I can't recommend Mandy highly enough. She is professional, responsive, knowledgeable, tenacious, and always follows through on her word. She is also a lot of fun to work with!
