Car sat for 3 months, started it up and the brake went to the floor. Have had the brakes, pads, rotors, master cylinder and booster replaced. Car stops but brake pedal still goes to the floor

Any suggestions

Sounds like there may be air in the system or there may be an external leak. Have the system checked at a shop for any leaks and make sure the bearings in the front and rear have no play as they may also cause a low brake pedal.

Who is doing the parts replacing/recommending? No way you would have to replace pads/rotors/shoes since they were working fine when parked! Get help from competent people!
