As a real estate professional and licensed real estate agent I strongly believe in working with the best real estate agent and agency in the market. I asked a highly respected real estate broker to identify the best agent & agency for purchasing a property in Key West, FL. After interviewing over 10 Key West agents he referred me to Karen Verri of Ocean Sotheby’s. My wife and I worked with Karen on the recent purchase of our Key West property in a highly competitive 2022 market. She took the time to understand our needs and researched properties that would work the best for us. She reached out to multiple agents before listings hit the market, which allowed us to be the first ones to see properties and have our choice. She also reached out to off-market properties for us to tour. In fact, Karen was able to arrange tours of 5 off-market/pre-market properties which met our demanding specifications. We were thrilled to ultimately purchase one of these properties! Karen always remained professional and confident that we would find the property and location that we desired and wouldn’t let anyone stand in our way. We were very pleased with her performance throughout the process. If you are looking for a hard working agent that puts the needs of her clients first, she is the agent for you.

Pierre is exactly what you want and need in a real estate agent: smart, honest and patient. He worked with me for years until I found my perfect vacation home - and he helped me secure a fantastic price. Pierre is a pleasure to work with, courteous, has a great eye, understands what you want, knows the market and, well, is fun to look at houses with. I highly recommend you use Pierre’s a rock star.

I was a real estate broker active in Wisconsin and also bought real estate in Florida, working with many brokers and agents over my 50-year career, Ally is one of the best agents I have ever worked with. She did not just list our property and wait, she spent time actually marketing the property and actively looking for buyers. Once she had a buyer, She professionally negotiated the transaction, was always available for questions and kept us informed as to the status right up through the closing.

I can verify Nobody knows the Key West market better than Ellen Gvili. In fact, she pegged the exact dollar values of my new home - before we closed - including the new assessment value, taxes, insurance, everything to a T. And the best part - nobody will work harder than Ellen to make sure you not only get your slice of Paradise, but that it is also a great investment value. She did a wonderful job for me, my home has already appreciated in value like she told me it would, and once she gets the deal closed for you, she has the best contacts for anything else you might ever need - lawyers, contractors, designers etc. She also did a great job getting one my other homes on the mainland sold, and again at top dollar value. Ellen goes way beyond the call - and to top it all off, she is a wonderful lady and a pleasure to work with.

We used Gloria for both buying a new house and selling our old one. No one is more knowledgeable about the Upper Keys housing market. She is honest and ethical, and when things get stressful she is always calm and encouraging. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell here.

Jo Ann was excellent in walking us through every step of the purchasing process. She had a friendly and encouraging attitude and made us feel comfortable right from the beginning. Her many years of experience surely paid off for us. Jo Ann's attention to detail was over the top, example; send an email and in less than two minutes she was getting back. We did the closing electronically. The process was perfect. ZERO problems, no issues. We had all documents well in advance so that we had ample time to review and ask questions. I feel that if we used another agent we would be still looking. 110% satisfaction with Jo Ann and her supporting team. Not to mention she made it fun!

Just want to send a huge thank you to Leslie Leopold at Ocean Sotheby’s International Realty for helping us find our dream home, and then helping to actually make owning it a possibility! Leslie used her expertise of the industry and the Keys to make sure we were making the best possible investment for our family. Since we did not live close by to where we were purchasing our second home, Leslie was always willing to make herself available to meet with inspectors, surveyors, and such. It definitely was a burden off our shoulders and helped to make the purchase flow seamlessly. It’s great to find a company who can bring a career and a passion together by making people’s dreams come true! A sincere thank you from our family!

John Vlad has our highest recommendation for his professionalism, diligence, perseverance, and “stick to and solve the impossible” attitude. John was always the consummate professional, yet easy going with an attitude that was calm and casual. His diligence and attention to detail was spot on in dealing with difficult buyers, such as showing buyers all the advantages of a property, not once but several times. He persevered with buyers that were obstinate and difficult, then provided solutions when there seemed to be an impasse. I have dealt with many agents and brokers in the past 47 years and believe that John Vlad is the BEST I have ever dealt with buying or selling real estate!

"We had a bay front home in Islamorada and my wife Karen and I had Kim list our home after it was on the market with another realtor for a long time with no acceptable offers. With Kim’s expertise on pricing, we had an acceptable offer within about 3 months! Kim is a good communicator and kept us informed throughout the entire selling process. We would highly recommend Kim over and over again!"

“The service that Jo Ann provided was outstanding. She provided us all the information on the home so we could make an educated purchase. We have purchased real estate before and never experienced the type service and devotion to finding us a house that Jo Ann provided. Since that purchase Jo Ann found us a great piece of land in Coco Plum which we are constructing a gorgeous home with guest quarters.”
