With her Big Apple energy, Miami sass, and a sprinkle of sweet Dominican romance, Monica brings to the table a unique mix of professional prowess and a vibrant personality. She expertly guides clients through the complex maze of real estate in Florida with a finesse that instills both admiration and confidence. The very same spirit that pushed her to run countless marathons in all kinds of weather also fuels her dedication to her clients. Yet, when asked about her life's most shining moments, she doesn't mention the races or the accolades. Instead, she fondly speaks of her family. It's this beautiful blend of her past and present, her dreams and realities, which makes Monica stand out. The little girl who once believed her roller skates had wings, grew up to be a woman ensuring "no worries" for those seeking to realize their dream of homeownership in Florida.

We run a small team, do about 100 deals per year, and have been using Contract to Close Solutions for a few months now since we recently discovered their company. As you can imagine, we are extremely busy, but Contract to Close Solutions has been a lifeline for us. They take care of all the paperwork and minutia involved in the real estate transaction and take that off our plate. No more worrying about getting escrow letters, making sure addendums are signed timely, appraisals are back in, loan commitments, etc. The savings of our time helps us grow our business and focus our efforts where they are most dollar productive showing and selling properties. Thank you, Bernadine and your entire team, for all of your hard work on our files! You are an integral part of our team, and we look forward to growing with you!

I am a long time realtor and major control freak. It typically takes a while for someone to earn my trust enough to give up my some control of my deals. Well.. I must say, Contract to Close Solutions has exceeded my expectations, within a few months I felt comfortable to have them handle ALL of my transactions. I have been using CTCS for a few years now and my business has grown as a result. I have more time to elevate and grow my business. I joke that every deal is a party, because the staff at CTCS is full of positive energy and sunshine! I am beyond satisfied with their services, and my only regret was waiting so long to start using them!!!

Bernadine Jones and her crew have truly changed my business for the better!

I was introduced to Bernadine and Contract to Close Solutions about 2.5 years ago. I am so incredibly thankful to have met them and the team. As transaction coordinators with an incredible amount of real estate experience, they are an integral part of our team. A true weight has been lifted off our shoulders knowing they can skillfully handle every aspect from going under contract to closing. They allow us to focus on generating more business, and the day to day stress of our real estate transactions is minimized by their incredible follow up, keeping track of important contract deadlines, drafting addendums, extensions, and always going above and beyond to get our contracts to the closing table. I can’t thank Contract to Close Solutions enough, and if you have been considering transaction coordination for your real estate business you should strongly consider Bernadine & the team. They have been a game changer for us and our team and we are incredibly thankful for them.
