About Me

Christie “Cara” Bendeck P.A.

As a Broker Associate and Realtor® specializing in residential sales and marketing, I believe in providing exceptional service to Buyers and Sellers, paying attention to the details of each sale or purchase.  Providing current, up-to-date market trends and information is key to all transactions and I believe firmly in providing this to every buyer and seller I represent.  Buyers and sellers need to be able to make the most informed decisions possible, and I can provide the solid information necessary for a smooth transaction.  My job is to ensure a positive, stress-less memory of selling or buying a home in an efficient manner providing knowledge and skill utilizing the latest, secure technology and connecting clients with the services and products they need in every step of the way.

I began working in residential real estate in 1996 after graduating from Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, Tennessee with a degree in Marketing, then continuing my education with a Masters in Business Administration and successfully completing and passing the Florida broker’s licensing requirements.  I reside in the Tampa Bay Area of Florida with my husband and three children, enjoying the beauty of our local communities.  Every seller and buyer I serve is a marvelous opportunity to share my knowledge and form lasting friendships for years to come.     


Cara made our home selling and buying experience very easy and stress-free. She never pressured us in or out of any decision, and was always an advocate for whatever we decided throughout the process. She helped us get top dollar for our home, and helped us negotiate the exact price we wanted on our purchase. All around a great experience!

We have had the pleasure of working with Cara on several transactions, and she is incredible! She is very responsive, incredibly tenacious, and works extremely hard to make sure your transaction goes smoothly. We highly recommend her - you will not be disappointed!

Our experience with Cara was professional and knowledgeable. We would definitely consider representation by her in the future. She was very accessible, responsive and had wonderful integrity. She means what she says and says what she means. We met through business, but now I consider her a friend.

Cara contacted me because I had our home up for sale by owner. It was the 2nd time we'd tried to sell "by owner," and had had minimal activity. I was not open to listing with a realtor, but something in Cara's voice just sounded "right." We did list with Cara and her for sale sign went up on May 7, 2015. On June 3, 2015, we had a signed contract to purchase our home. The buyer bought the home in a cash deal. It was a quick and painless closing, mainly due to Cara's knowledge and coaching us as the sellers through the process. Can't recommend Cara Bendeck highly enough.
