Only the brightest and best realtor groups survive and make real estate sales a viable career in Lake Worth. Selecting a realtor team is a wise choice, as no one REALTOR is everything to everybody. The best realtor team in Lake Worth gives buyers, sellers or real estate investors the care they want in their real estate transactions.
The Bridges Connection Team, is composed of Keith Dickman, Karyn Shapiro and Claudia Dickman. This realtor company’s goal is to maintain the highest level of service in delivering quality real estate offerings around Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Lake Worth and Wellington, Florida. We are equipped to provide you national and international affiliated REALTORS, if your Real Estate needs are outside of Florida.
We’ve built an impressive pipeline of customers over the years and have even increased our value proposition with an auxiliary team of real estate vendors to include mortgage and insurance companies, etc. Our group of the best realtor team in Lake Worth and affiliated professionals are growing daily to accommodate the multitude of needs and wants of our customers.
“It’s our job to gain our customer’s trust from the first contact,” Keith says.
Typically, within a short time, a buyer, seller or business investor will see they’re in great hands with The Bridges Connection Team. Partnering with his wife, Claudia, and friend Karyn, the team has found a niche market, then got to work! Even now it continues to expand with amenities raising the bar on luxury living. Navigating the surrounding area requires forethought as does identifying the needs of the buyer or seller.
Keith ran a $10 million-dollar paint and hardware distributorship business prior to entering real estate. His negotiation skills are sharp and he’s always interested in getting top dollar for his sellers and the best deals for his buyers.
Karyn, who boasts 25 years in real estate between New York and Florida adds, “We treat our customers like we would treat our own family.”
Claudia’s mantra is that a great transaction happens when everyone is satisfied. “This means wearing many hats. I love meeting new people, I also empathize with others, and I like taking care of others,” she says.
Most of their customer base is via referrals, and a new feature of their enterprising spirit is its freshly tailored magazine. This also continues to build its affiliate partner base with business owners servicing our local area. Unlike other real estate direct marketing pieces, the magazine has drawn the interest of neighbors and local businesses. This is done to keep up with the excitement and latest updates within our many locations.
The Bridges Connection Team is attracting more and more international buyers through its website TheBridgesConnection.com. It is also attracting buyers on its Facebook page, Luxury House Hunters of Boca Raton & Delray Beach (please “like” and “follow” this page). This keeps would-be buyers up to date about pricing and trends. In addition, the Bridges Connection Team posts its listings on more than 100 websites, which international buyers have access to through their social media.
If you are buying new construction or a resale home in our area or choosing to list your property now or in the future, reach out to The Bridges Connection Team. You’ll find that “living the dream” (as Keith puts it) is achievable with the right team backing you and your family.
Keith Dickman has been working in the real estate industry for over 20 years, and is one of the founding members of “The Bridges Connection Team”. Alongside his wife, Claudia Dickman, and his business partner, Karyn Shapiro, The Bridges Connection Team has earned “Top Producer” from 2018 to 2021.
Keith has an abundance of experience with the state of Florida. From Boca Raton to Delray Beach, he has worked with many country club communities, and is even familiar with the GL Homes product lineup. Keith’s performance in many 55-and-over communities throughout Florida sets him apart from the rest of his competition.
Thanks to his two decades of experience, Keith is arguably the best realtor in the area. He knows how to close a deal with customers while also offering them the services they require. By compiling a group of related vendors, Keith can recommend clients to nearby businesses to enjoy, such as restaurants or home improvement companies.
Claudia Dickman is a valued partner to The Bridges Connection and Keith Dickman and has won the award of Top Producer two years in a row.
Originally from Argentina, Claudia’s family moved to America to build a new life for themselves. After growing up in New York, she graduated in The Fashion Institute of Technology with a Bachelor’s in Marketing. Eventually she married Keith in 1991 and had two daughters.
Claudia convinced Keith to move to Florida, and from there, Claudia was able to earn her real estate license in order to assist Keith with moving his business to the Lake Worth area.
Karyn Shapiro has been a highly decorated realtor for 25 years. With her vast experience, she has been spending the latter half of her career moving families to South Florida as a partner in Bridges Connection.
Throughout her career, Karyn has earned many awards such as largest total team sales, 1# team companywide, 1# dollar volume, and largest single transaction.
Besides already being a successful realtor, Karyn is one of the founding members of The Bridges community. Karyn works with several returning customers and is very knowledgeable of local real estate, schools, and everything else pertaining to the local area.
