Ms. Kelly Klein

Dear Kelly:

Thank you for your assistance with my recent property purchase.    You were referred to me by good friends who were extremely pleased and grateful for your help when they purchased their new home.  They were impressed by your attention to details that they might not have considered, to both protect their interest and to save money.   I wholeheartedly agree with their opinions!

I appreciate how much time, effort and importance you placed on my real estate search.  Not being familiar with the area and living out of town, I was fortunate to rely on your guidance and expertise with a sense of trust that my requirements and interests were your highest priority in finding that perfect property.

In addition, your strong and positive network with related professionals and businesses (title insurance company, mortgage lender, surveryor) streamlined the process.  You should know that you are held in high esteem by your peers, as I discovered during our association.

Kelly, you exceeded my expectations, and I hope to work with you again.

From Janet and Bill,

We enjoyed working with you also and would recommend you to anyone who is looking for an excellent real estate agent and a fun person to work with.


From Fred ~

Last October my wife spent a weekend visiting a friend of hers who lives in the Riviera Beach area of Panama City Beach. When she got  back home she felt like it was the sort of a spot that I would like and that there might be several good deals available in that areas' housing market.  So,  after a visit the following weekend and a  lot of internet research, we randomly selected Kelly to help us on our quest for the best vacation home that our budget could handle. She could not have been any more accommodating. Her energetic, kind and pleasant, but professional manner turned  what could have been a frustrating search into a fun adventure. As we hunted for our dream vacation home, she had all sorts of interesting lowdown on the area. She knows her stuff. The first weekend we had a few possibilities in sight. We made a couple of offers but they didn't pan out. Each day Kelly would E-mail us at our home near Atlanta any other possibilities as they came on the market. When we had  a free weekend to search some more, Kelly was unable to be available. In spite of this she managed to have an associate of hers meet us anyway. She too was equally as accommodating. During the negotiation and closing phases of our purchase she was very helpful. Throughout the entire process, we really got the  impression that she would do anything we requested. Can't say enough about her. We are very pleased. She even congratulated us with a smile and a bottle of wine the day we moved in!

 From Mike and Michelle ~


Just so there are no doubts on this issue, we are most thankful for your efforts throughtout the buying process and especially during our last visit.  You are the one who educated us about the market, gave us advice based on your experience and insights - even if you thought we might not want to hear it, helped us get it clear in our heads what was important to us when it came time to make tradeoffs, listened to what we were saying and then guided us to properties that met those criteria - as opposed to steering us toward properties that you might have had a personal preference for, and most importantly behaved in a way that was totally professional, with high personal integrity, and had a personal touch that made the overall experience enjoyable.
And lastly, you shepherded us through the offer and closing process - all the way down to making sure we got the keys to the condo.

All of the above are why would we without hestitation refer you to others that might be interested in investing in the Destin area.  Michelle has already referred you to her step-mom.  And I wouldn't be surprised if some of our friends take an interest after visiting us in Miramar Beach.


From Dan and Jan -- Thank you for your assistances with the purchase of our Florida house.  Dan & I appreciate your thoughtfulness.  Sincerely, Jan and Dan


Hi Kelly,

Thank you so much for the information that you have sent thus far. 

Your information and email style is both helpful and extremely professional - thank you. 



We have a lot of friends and family that we will refer them to you.  Hopefully, within the next year and a half, we will be ready for pre-sale opportunities in Florida.


Again, thank you so much for your time, energy and professionalism.


Warmest regards,


Christy and Dave


Dear Kelly, Thanks so much for the terrific write-up and pictures of our lot. We sincerely appreciate your prompt and professional attention and look forward to working with you.
Kind regards, Hal & Julie


I forwarded your name and the work you've been doing for us to our son in Houston, Tx.  He has some properties in Panama City Beach (Laguna Beach) that he wants to list before long.  So, don't be surprised if you get a call or email from them.

Thanks again,   

Julie & Hal



Kelly, I wanted to Thank You for all your help on the purchase of my house.  As an out of town owner I had a lot of concerns about inspections, closing, and overall how to do this from another state.  You made things happen; were well organized and knew what you were doing. I will certainly recommend you to friends and acquaintances in the future.
