Urban Living Tampa Bay is excited to announce that two real estate brands you know and trust have joined forces; Urban Living Tampa Bay is now a boutique office of Keller Williams Tampa Central. Urban Living’s merger with Keller Williams allows our knowledgeable team of agents to continue to provide expert real estate services, while having the support of an internationally recognized allied partner that offers our clients leading edge technology, experience, marketing tools, and a support team, giving us more time to focus on our clients.
Urban Living @ Keller Williams Tampa Central specializes in the popular urban cores of Tampa & St. Petersburg, including neighborhoods like South Tampa, Downtown Tampa, Channelside, Harbour Island, Downtown St. Pete, Old Northeast, and Snell Isles. As the real estate market grows in Tampa Bay, and prices are escalating in the urban core, Urban Living @ Keller Williams Tampa Central has been branching out into the metropolitan neighborhoods of Tampa Heights, Riverside Heights, Seminole Heights, Carrollwood, and even more suburban areas like Brandon & Riverview, to better serve our clients’ budget and lifestyle needs. Our Urban Living team offers expert real estate services to homeowners that need to sell or lease their homes, buyers and renters, and relocation services to those moving to our beautiful cities to enjoy the sunshine and beaches while they live, work, and play.
Urban Living also offers interior design and remodeling services. Urban Living’s founder and team leader, Marvin Meeks, isn’t just a real estate expert, but also an experienced and talented interior designer, with almost 30 years experience designing and remodeling residential properties. Marvin incorporates his experience as a designer into his real estate career, and has a talent for pinpointing potential problems in a home, suggesting solutions for storage or awkward floor plans, and estimating renovation expenses, which are valuable resources for buyers and sellers alike when assessing a home’s current and future values.
I am glad I met Marvin Meeks over 6 years ago. He placed me in my rental in Channelside when my job transferred me to Tampa, and then sold me my condo at The Towers a year later. I have since been transferred to California, and he has helped lease and take care of my condo for over three years. If not for Marvin I could not have managed my unit in Tampa. He truly cares for his clients and always puts their interests first, and I trust him implicitly. Thank you Marvin for all that you do.
One word comes to mind when I think of Marvin and Urban Living... "Trust". We have moved into our dream lifestyle all because of Marvin Meeks. Marvin helped us buy our retirement condo at the Towers of Channelside, found and took care of our tenant when we rented it, and sold our suburban home in Brandon in 1 week. I have recommended Urban Living and Marvin Meeks to all my friends, family, and gladly do so here. Thank You for transforming our lives.
We have used Urban Living Tampa for all of our real estate needs over the last several years. Marvin Meeks and the team at Urban Living have been a great group of people to work with - from purchasing our current home in Beach Park to renting out our investment properties. They are simply the best!
When we moved to Tampa from Arkansas we were referred to Marvin, and it was the best referral we could have received. Marvin took the time to listen to what we needed and wanted, and got to know our personalities as well. When we decided to rent before buying, Marvin found us a great condo; and when we finally decided to buy a house, he found a new construction home in Riverview that was perfect for us. When some friends decided to move to Florida, we referred them to Marvin and he found their dream home for them as well. We couldn’t be more pleased with his professionalism and his determination to help us find the perfect home, without letting the builder run over us in the process. We wouldn’t recommend anyone else but Marvin!
Marvin from Urban Living Tampa Bay was my property manager when I rented, and my Realtor for my first home purchase. He is very knowledgeable about the Tampa Bay area real estate market, highly responsive to all forms of communication, skilled in price negotiations, and has design experience that can come in handy with a "fixer upper." I would recommend using Marvin and Urban Living Tampa Bay as your Realtor, property manager, and designer.
Urban Living Tampa isn't an agency that sells houses. They facilitate achieving goals. They combine the designer eye, market expertise, integrity, commitment, and client focus. They take the time to understand what you want to accomplish and advocate for you. There is mutual trust and respect. My experience with Urban Living Tampa and Marvin has always been stellar. This is why I have only worked with them for the last 8 years and will not consider another agency or agent.
Marvin and Urban Living are the absolutely best! We had searched for over a year and ended up in our dream home on Davis islands only after finding Marvin and his expert skills. He knows the area and really understood what we were looking for. His skill and style made the entire process enjoyable and we are really grateful to have found Marvin and Urban Living!
My family hired Urban Living to manage our condominium in downtown Tampa @ Skypoint several years ago, and we could not be more satisfied with the results. The owner, Marvin Meeks has been very professional and successful in maintaining and leasing our property and we learned to expect the high levels of service and fairness from his company. I would definitely recommend Urban Living to anyone looking for a property manager or a Realtor.
Marvin and the Urban Living team made the entire process of buying our Old Hyde Park home so easy and seamless. Every detail was attended to. Marvin is such a pleasure to work with, we couldn't have asked for a better experience
Working with Marvin was nothing but a pleasure--he’s very responsive, efficient and knowledgeable about downtown condos. I’m in the downtown home of my dreams at Skypoint, thanks Marvin!
Marvin recently helped my husband and I purchase a home in the Old Seminole Heights neighborhood of Tampa. During the process, we probably saw a dozen homes (all over the region - Palma Ceia, Virginia Park, Old Seminole Heights, and Port Tampa) and Marvin's knowledge of the neighborhoods as well as interior decorating made the choices so much easier. While looking at the homes my husband was concerned about remodeling and space allocation. His expertise in these areas saved us several possible headaches. From start to finish he was always available and extremely accommodating. From showings that fit our schedule, to final questions during document signing - we would recommend him highly.
