I have been working with Amber for 4 years now, I have bought a few houses and she has made the process very easy for my part.

She is an investors dream. She has saved me a lot of money. She thinks of details I would not have thought of.

Betsy helped me buy my first home, on Valentine's Day, no less!

She was prompt when responding to my questions, and went above and beyond to make sure my needs were met. She even brought me a beautiful bouquet of flowers to welcome me to my new home! I would highly reccommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

We recently closed on a home with Amber La Esperance and she got it done!

I had my doubts at first but she nailed it! Found our home, did not have to go into a bidding war and made the transaction as smooth as buttah! I recommend her on all your real estate needs! She is what we call our "sleeper" player! Don't underestimate her! She will hit a grand slam and win the game for you! Definitely a star player!

Betsy is in a class all by herself.

. . it's always a pleasure doing business with a professional. I don't know where she gets the energy to multitask meetings, open house, research on properties, knowing: who when and where. . . She is amazing at what it takes to get signatures on the dotted lines.

I recently sold my condo and purchased a single family home.

Having purchased property with her before, I called Betsy to list my condo and help me find my ideal house. She quickly provided a list of similar condos that had recent sold in my complex, we considered improvements and she listed my condo. It sold within just a few weeks for a very fair price. I then had a family emergency and had to go back up north for a few weeks so Betsy took care of the closing on my behalf. The fact that I trust her to do that ethically and correctly in my absence speaks volumes about her character. In the meantime, we started on the search for a single family home. She reviewed neighborhoods, prices, pros and cons with me (including potential traffic issues I'd never even considered). She showed me multiple properties within the scope of what I wanted and it wasn't long before we found the house that would become my "forever home." Thanks to Betsy, I now get to live just minutes from work in an absolutely amazing neighborhood with fantastic neighbors!! Thank you again, Betsy!


When we decided to place our home up for sale we knew Amber would be who we contacted to do so.

She had been amazing to work with when we bought our home and we knew she would go above and beyond again for us. She did not disappoint. If you are looking for an agent who truly cares about you then I recommend Amber. When our closing was pushed back she made sure to place us in a hotel for the weekend, at her expense, until Monday morning closing! Who does that?! She does! You are not just another number with this company, you are family.

I met Betsy in 2008 when my family and I moved to Jacksonville from Hudson, Ohio.

Betsy was quick to like and so friendly. She was our realtor and worked hard for us. She has the patience, knowledge of real estate and such a deligent worker. I would highly recommend Betsy for a job in real estate where she has lots and lots of knowledge.

Bernadette did an excellent job selling our property. She said she would sell in a week and indeed she sold it in less than a week!! It always feels good to realize that RE agents doing what they promise, not just in order to get the listing. She sold the property before she even asked for the listing. She performed above and beyond our expectations. Thanks a bunch Bernadette!

Erik Penia


I have known Bernadette for several years as a real estate investor and licensed real estate broker. There is likely no other agent in the Jacksonville area that is more knowledgeable and well connected than Bernadette. She has sold several of my rental properties over the years, and it was with her knowledge of the market here in Jacksonville that guided me through the process of selling and getting top dollar for my properties. She stays in contact with all parties (including contractors) during the rehab and selling process. Sh keeps on top of the entire process and makes solid recommendations on what will improve the value of the property and which contractors/lenders/title companies are able to get the job done quickly and efficiently. She is a work horse and is extremely talented in getting properties sold in tough situations that most agents don't have the knowledge or tools to address. Highly recommend!

Bill Massey

Betsy helped us find the home of our dreams.

She worked through a complicated foreclosure, wrote up a winning bid and helped to steer us in the right direction for a renovation loan. I would highly recommend Betsy.

We have dealt with Betsy on several occasions, and have never been disappointed.

She is wonderful to work with, and always puts the client first -- which is what every homebuyer should be looking for!

9/30/2013 - L. Burris

Betsy has been a great friend for several years so when my Dad wanted to sell his home, I called her immediately.

She staged it beautifully, gave us expert advice, and the house sold at a price my Dad was very happy with! Betsy is also currently listing a beach condo that my family owns and is hosting an open house on a regular basis. I highly recommend her!

05/26/2014 - pb.armstrong

Betsy is fun to work with and a great negotiator.

The seller was extremely difficult to work with and I was ready to give up many times. Betsy kept telling me to hang in there and that I would get the house that I wanted. She didn't give up and continued to manage all the tough negotiations. And through it all she kept her cool and always had her friendly smile. I was an out of town buyer and Betsy showed up to watch the home inspection, the people who did the repairs and to do the final walk through. She kept me in the loop about all that was happening with what was going on with the house buying process. She worked hard for me!


Constantly stayed in touch during the process.

Made helpful suggestions to make property more saleable. Brought very interested buyers to see property.

09/14/2016 - gariellen

Bernadette is a great realtor who fought to get us the condo we wanted.

My Amber was amazing from the start to finish.

She helped me with things that I shouldn't even call her about. If you need someone to make things, she will put her gloves on to fight for you, she's your girl! I can't thank her enough for her patience, commitment, communication, understanding, and for going and above and beyond to get me and my boys my home.

Peter Mendoza

FIRST TIME HOME BUYER I found Bernadette to be honest, to the point and patient as needed (b/c I am a first time home buyer).

She did a great job guiding me through my first purchase!

Nicholas Hall

This is one of the hardest working agents that I have met in twenty years!

Bernadette has gone far and above what most agents would have done. I was on a very strict time line to move and in less than 5 days with her hard work she was able to locate my property and get the closing complete. I would recommend Bernadette to anyone who is in the market for purchasing a home.

Yolanda Williams

BUYING WITH BERNADETTE Loved working with Bernadette.

She makes a complicated process easy, listens to your needs and cuts through the paperwork leaving you understanding what you are signing. I would recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling real estate. She really knows the business and is the consummate professional!

Janis Roselle

Betsy was knowledgeable and very helpful from start to finish.

She sold our home quickly and kept us informed at all times. She is an awesome realtor and we would definitely contact and use her again if needed. Thank you

06/04/2018 - mrheaume62

Betsy's assistance and professionalism were top notch start to finish.

After numerous home choices kept falling through, she persisted, always with a positive attitude, until we found a house that looked like it would go through. Using a VA Loan, there were numerous obstacles, and she helped us navigate all. We finally made the closing on time. I would gladly recommend her to anyone for real estate services.

02/08/2014 - launchsite

Working with Amber L'Esperance was amazing because she covered the real estate buying process from A to Z.

This concluded with a smooth, successful close...getting my San Marco (Jacksonville) dream home.

Edward T.

Betsy helped my husband and I sell our condo in Jacksonville, FL.

It was a little stressful for us because we lived out of state. We couldn't have been luckier to have Betsy as our agent. She made the process as painless as it could've been, given our unique situation. She was very professional and had great communication with us the entire time. We'd highly recommend Betsy for any of your real estate needs!!


Pete was amazing!

His knowledge and guidance helped me buy an investment property. Pete was even hands on in the remodeling process to get the property ready to rent. Thanks Pete! You’re the best!

Christine H.

I worked with Pete and he was thorough, knowledgeable, and walked myself and my boyfriend through this entire process.

He was attentive to our needs and wants. He helped us find our perfect home and we couldn't be happier!

Jasmine R.

I moved here from out-of-state and knew nothing of the local area.

Not only did Betsy take the time to show me various housing choices in my budget and commuting range, but when we found what I wanted she fought for me to make sure I got the best deal on the best home. Ultimately, thanks to her, I ended up exactly where I wanted for just the right price and I could not be happier!

Peter was very informative, timely and a great help on our sale and purchase of a new home.

My fiancé and I had a lot of questions and if he didn’t know the answers to them. He would research them and get back to us in a timely manor. On the sale of our home. He gave us helpful tips and a check list to help prepare us to give the best presentation (staging). In return when where under contract in 48 hours. The negotiation process was quick to our satisfaction. On buying a new home. Every concern or questions we had. He addressed them accordingly to our best expectations. If you are in the market and or just considering selling or buying. I would highly recommend Peter McMahon.

Archie M.

We have been represented by Betsy Molitor since early 2017.

Her knowledge, service and professional during that time has been outstanding and exceeded all of our initial expectations.She thoroughly researched the Beaches market for us and her guidance, integrity and followup was unparalleled to any other real estate professional we have dealt with in the last forty years.Yes forty years ! We have been involved in numerous high valued real estate transactions and no other real estate professional comes closed on any level of service, dedication, knowledge, professionalism and most importantly trust, integrity and ethical behavior.She is a unique and trusted real estate professional in a highly competitive and transaction driven industry. We were fortunate to have been referred to and represented by Betsy Molitor. Our recent purchase of our 3 bedroom oceanfront condominium for almost $2 million would not have taken place but for her patience, dedication, determination, knowledge, professionalism and people skills. We trust that management of her company already recognize and appreciate all her professional skills and the assets that she brings to their real estate business every day. We can not say enough positives things about her real estate representation for us in 2017 and thank her for all of her efforts on our behalf that exceeded all reasonable expectations.

Bernadette was terrific!

She found several potential buyers and offers for my home, and I closed on the house within 10 days of my first meeting with her. She was always available for my phone calls and (many) questions, and was unfailingly helpful. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. I would give her six stars if that was possible!

Edith Pillsbury

Bernadette went above and beyond to help find our family the perfect home for us. She put in long hours and was very fast and dedicated to her job. Highly recommend.

Rachel Bryant

Amber helped me sell a home as well as buy a new one.

She was instrumental in helping me set an attractive but aggressive price for the house I was selling. Additionally, she was able to recommend a photographer that did an excellent job on the listing photos. We listed on a Thursday and by the following Monday the house was under contract with a full-price offer! The closing process was quick and painless - the whole transaction went great! On the buying side, she worked with me to find homes that fit my criteria at a time when there was limited inventory. She alerted me to a house coming on the market that looked like a match - we saw it that day and wrote an offer the next morning. We were competing with other offers, so she guided me through the process of submitting an escalation clause to avoid overpaying. The offer was accepted, and the closing was quick and painless. I would happily recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell!

Raymond H.

We could not have asked for a better realtor to help us look for and ultimately buy our first home.

She was so flexible with her time and was always available to show us properties. She went above and beyond to track down all pertinent information about each potential property. We would HIGHLY recommend her services!

Taylor Ludecke

Betsy is a very nice person, friendly, and our best real estate person so far.

She is very knowledgeable of her job, very understanding, honest and trustworthy. She takes her time to answer or get an answer to our questions and concerns in regard to our real estate transactions. We closed 2 houses that she found for us. With her help, we went through a "1031 Exchange" transaction easily. We will ask her help again if we have a chance in the future. We highly recommend her without any doubt. She is the best.
