30A Local Properties, Inc Testimonials

“Working with Bobby Johnson and his team was a delight from start to finish.

Their widespread contacts and experience helped them sell our land at an excellent price, and they were with us every step of the way until the day of closing. In the process, Bobby became a friend. That’s a great recommendation in itself. If you want knowledgeable, experienced, well-connected real estate agents who make the buying or selling process as stress-free and enjoyable possible, we highly recommend Bobby and his team.”

We were looking for a vacation home on 30A and had the good fortune to visit one of Kimberly's open houses.

After meeting her, she provided us with lots of helpful information about the area and got us set up with internet searches. She set up appointments for several houses that fit our requirements...within just a few weeks, we were closing on the perfect beach house for us. We had visited 30A often, but live in New Orleans so didn't really know anyone in the area. This proved to be no problem at all because Kimberly seems to know everyone! She did so much legwork and went above and beyond to help us with everything from insurance to finding management and landscaping help after the sale. She made the experience so easy and we would definitely consult with Kimberly again if we relocate. Highly recommend!

“We had the opportunity to work with Murray Balkcom last fall to purchase our home in Watercolor.

Murray was diligent in understanding our needs and concerns around the purchase of a second home in the 30A area. Murray was mindful of our needs, budget and preferences in scheduling properties for viewing and provided honest and fair feedback on each of the properties we viewed. Murray’s experience in the marketplace proved extraordinarily helpful; whether working out details with the sellers agents, recommending businesses for touch ups and repairs or suggesting a property management company, it was clear he understands the ins and outs of the 30A corridor. Beyond his professionalism and marketplace expertise, Murray is a genuine person who loves what he does and makes the experience enjoyable and memorable for his clients. When the time comes to list our Water Color home, you can be sure Murray will be our listing agent.”

"We were referred to Kathy by our former realtor who had retired.

We were used to prompt information, great listening skills, and the ability to connect our desires with properties that fell within our parameters. Kathy performed excellently. She answered questions quickly, had a relaxed but professional demeanor and was always ready to point out aspects of property ownership in the area that we were not aware of. Living 500 miles from the property that we purchased made Kathy's knowledge invaluable. Great experience and we would highly recommend Kathy Price."

My oldest daughter, Kelsey, was purchasing her first home, and my husband and I told her we were help her through the process.

She had selected Jackie as here real estate agent. Kelsey made the RIGHT decision! From the very first phone call and all the way through the closing, Jackie was extremely responsive. And her follow-up on open items was impressive. She is knowledgeable about the area and was very helpful in all aspects of the process. My husband have been through quite a few purchases and sales in several states. Without question, the best agent we have ever worked with was Jackie Ogle. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

To whom it may concern, I just wanted to take a moment to share our experience dealing with Jackie Ogle.

First of all, ours was a chance meeting. My wife and I have visited the area loads of times in the past and thought it was about time we take the plunge. We were introduced to Jackie and knew immediately that she was the right realtor for us. She was always available for us even though we dealt with her while out of town. Always answers the phone with loads of energy and grace. Most importantly, she put up with all my nonsense! I’m not easy to deal with! When it came down to narrowing it down to a few places, Jackie showed them to us several times. As a long time local, she explained the pluses and minuses of each area. It finally came down to choosing a place, she was very reassuring and a great negotiator. Bottom line, we couldn’t recommend her enough. She was simply great! We will always appreciate her as our agent and hope to be a life long friend now that we too are “local” beach property owners. Thanks so much Jackie!

"Kathy has helped our family buy two houses in the area and has gone above and beyond to make the process easier for us.

She knows the area well and had a good feel for what we were looking for. We wouldn't use anyone else!"

We used Jackie to sell the house we were in, and buy our current house.

She got the house we were in to closing in a slow market with other houses in the neighborhood for sale. We were so grateful for the care she took in getting showings. And being willing to show at a moments notice. Jackie was always available, always professional, well researched on market values, and understood fully what we were looking for. If we had issues with the buyer or seller, she was very firm in representing our interests. I highly recommend her as an agent.

Leslie was extremely responsive and helpful through the course of purchasing our home.

She had a great team of inspectors and subcontractors that were able to address potential issues at the home in a timely manner. The closing went extremely smoothly and are appreciative of the guidance and support from Leslie throughout the process.

The reason I would recommend Shaina without a doubt is because she really treats a home seeker as a friend not as prospect to sell something to.

Have you ever had a real estate agents who didn't even ask what you are looking for but instead just showed you a house? Shaina is not one of them. She will give you updated and honest advice about everything you need to know. She wakes up early in other to have time for market research. She's the definition to professionalism!

It has been a year since we purchased our fabulous Destin beach condo!

We contacted Jackie Ogle after hearing she was a great person to work with. I gave her guidelines which were almost impossible to meet because I wanted the perfect place for us. Jackie did not blink an eye…we picked 24 to look at in ONE Weekend! Jackie was very organized, managed our time well, and always had a great attitude while being very pregnant, it was a very hot July! The unit we wanted to see… could not be seen until mid day Sunday which was our last day to find a condo. She made the visit happen early morning so we would not be on the road at a late hour. ALL of us were never so excited it was the one. Jackie fulfilled ever thing on my impossible list and more. All of our family and friends who have had the opportunity to visit the condo have been very complimentary of the location and all of them say this looks like something off of DIY Network! Thanks so much Jackie for finding our dream Condo!

She went way beyond what most realtors would do.

She spent hours researching painters, insurance agents, and many other services. That was a big help since we live 350 miles away from the property we purchased from Jackie.

Jackie Ogle and 30A Properties are incredible to work with and clearly the best choice in Destin Florida.

Searching for and buying a new home can be very difficult and stressful. Jackie was able to smooth the process and calm my anxiety by expertly guiding me through the complex maze. Her calm, friendly, professional demeanor is the perfect combination for success. Thanks to Jackie I was able to find my dream home quickly and efficiently and best of all she helped negotiate the best price. Thank you Jackie. Well done.

My wife and I were looking for a home in the 30A area of Florida a fortunately found Shaina.

She was amazing and made the search very easy. We actually ended up purchasing a home in a neighborhood that was not on our list thanks to her and are so glad we did. I highly recommend Shaina

I'll put it straight.

....Shaina is the best realtor I have ever met and the most honest, intellectual, and outwardly nicest person anyone could imagine. About 2 years ago, after getting over a significant real estate hardship, my wife and I decided to purchase again. We accidentally ran across Shaina in one of the neighborhoods we were interested in and in which she was working. Shaina was so up front, that she actually told us why the neighborhood she was selling in was not work well for us. She immediately advised us of neighborhoods that she thought we would enjoy and that fit our needs. Working through several challenges, Shaina would not stop once we made a decision on a property to purchase and home to build. Once she saw our passion, it became her own until we closed on our dream home on 30A....Thank you Shaina!! An experience that we will never forget, and we are eternally grateful.
