We had spoken with Karol several times over a period of a few years. Most often, we would see her at her display booth at Lake County Fairgrounds Thursday market. We were trying to decide whether to sell our home and move to a 55+ community. She was always welcoming, knowledgeable and was not high pressure.
When we finally made up our minds to sell, we called Karol. Her guidance through the entire process of listing & selling our home while helping us find just the right home and community was invaluable. Karol responded instantly to any questions or concerns we had. She managed closing on the sale of our home and closing on the purchase of a new home on the same day perfectly. Her motto is Absolute Service Start To Finish ... and she delivers!
If you are in need of a professional, personable and hardworking realtor, Karol McDermott is the person to call.

Karol went above and beyond what a real estate agent should be. SHE IS BEYOND A 10!She was our buyer's agent and the deal could not have been done WITHOUT HER. The listing agent must have been a novice - she did NOTHING! Could not answer basic questions, did not list the property properly, and did not respond in a timely fashion. On the other hand, Karol a professional all the way. We would like to give her a 10 but only allowed 5 stars. GO KAROL.
"It all started with one man in a converted airplane hangar overlooking Lake Griffin. He sold Central Florida orange groves, commercial properties, and in 1969 his first home for $44,000.
That man was my dad, Tom Grizzard.
As more and more families turned to my dad’s team for their Real Estate needs, our company outgrew one office after the next.
It was imperative that we provided our agents with the latest training and technology as the industry evolved. This led us to join ERA® whose use of the fax machine was cutting edge technology in the 1970’s. I think you would agree that technology and Real Estate has come a long way since then.
I bought the company in 2007 during one of the worst housing downturns in American history.
Despite the economy, we continued to grow by staying true to who we are - a team dedicated to collaboration, innovation, and exceptional service for our home buyers and sellers. Today, we’re proud to have grown into eight offices across Central Florida and have a team of over 250 career REALTORS®. Their exceptional commitment to service has earned our company a consistent ranking of over 98% on the ERA® Customer Satisfaction Survey Report, and we were also named the top ERA® company in customer service with the 2016 Jim Jackson Memorial Award.
Since our founding in 1968, our priority has remained the same - our relationships with our agents, clients, and communities.” - Gus Grizzard, Broker/Owner of ERA Grizzard Real Estate
