Testimonials

Kathleen Floryan is the best agent I know... and I know many as I have been a realtor for over 30 years... 12 of those in Ponte Vedra Beach/Jacksonville area. When I decided to list my home in Ponte Vedra Beach, I was living in Atlanta and needed the services of an agent in Florida. There were many friends/acquaintances I might have chosen but I received a letter from Kathleen and was very impressed. We arranged a meeting at my house at the beach, and I knew immediately that I wanted to list with her.  Kathleen's skills and marketing are unparalleled.... Within 3 weeks, I had 2 offers (one for full price) and a 3rd very interested buyer.  If you want fast results, list your home with Kathleen. You'll be glad you did.  She is very trustworthy and a great negotiator.  With my experience in the real estate business, I have known many excellent agents but consider Kathleen the best of the best.  - Beverly Younkins

 

I found Kathleen thru Zillow and was impressed with the reviews that were given by others who had used her for the same reason that I needed to. I was having to go thru the painful process of short selling my home of 7 1/2 years. I called Kathleen after I realized that keeping my home wasn't going to work out. We met on Jan. 18th and she listed my house on MLS that night and we had several cash offers come in immediately. I was thinking that I would be in my house at a minimum of another 6 months to a year for the process to complete. But little did I know that Kathleen would have me closing within 3 and a half months! I have to admit that I freaked out there for a little bit because it was happening before I could even find a place to live! Kathleen communicated with me at every turn and was generous and kind enough to put up with my freak out sessions and assured me that everything will work out. And it did. I can't thank her enough for all that she did and for how quickly she got me thru the process. I will recommend her to everyone who is looking for a professional realtor who will take care of them from beginning to closing! Kathleen... THANK YOU! You rock!  DAN M.

If location, location, location is a key... professional, professional, professional is a must! That is exactly what we received from that very talented real estate agent KATHLEEN FLORYAN. We feel so lucky that we found Kathleen. I felt at ease with Kathleen from the first conversation. Having relocated to Jacksonville herself, she understands the anxieties and frustrations that come along with house hunting from a distance. She is very personable and has a lot of knowledge of the area. Even more importantly her research and knowledge of negotiations and contracts was invaluable when we found a house we loved.  She was attentive, available, and honest. Kathleen had energy, knowledge and more integrity then I have had the privilege to work with in a while. Kathleen stayed on top of the communications between all the involved parties, and she always tracked down the answers to our questions immediately doesn’t matter what time of the day. When we were waiting for information (which was quite often), Kathleen helped me understand exactly who and what we were waiting for. There were lots of people, and I didn't always understand their exact roles (seller's agent, our lender, closing attorney, lien-holder, appraisers, inspectors, etc.). Unfortunately this house was a short-sale and it usually takes several long months to complete the sale. Fortunately, Kathleen did it in 46 days only. Amazing is it not? There was one fairly significant miss-communication regarding the lender and closing agency, but Kathleen unraveled the problem, got the process moving and the sale completed with as little stress for us as possible for me. I would be proud to have her represent me again and again. The time I spent with her was not only enjoyable but profitable and I gained knowledge about neighborhoods, real-estate processes and many value adding features I might have overlooked with an untrained eye. Kathleen is someone who you would want representing you. Don’t even bother working with anyone else! Call Kathleen today ! Sincerely, Ilia 

My wife and I are working with Kathleen now for a summer home in Ponte Vedra .We have received e mails of hundreds of homes from her that started the process of finding what we want. This past weekend we had the pleasure of finally meeting her in Ponte Vedra and viewed many of our favorites that she sent us as well as some hidden gems. I can say that her knowledge of the market is amazing and she will talk to you straight. There is no salesman nonsense in her. She tells it straight and after you think about her recommendation on a property you realize she is right and she played your alter ego.I am a commercial developer and I learned a lot from her. She is very savvy. The best I have dealt with. Plus she has wit and is fun. Don't miss out on a chance with her as your guide. We are very happy with her as ours.

I reached out to Kathleen when I began exploring properties for sale in the Ponte Vedra Beach area. Kathleen returned my phone call promptly, and was very personable. She understood my needs, and pointed me to properties that were consistent with my needs and expectations. She is outstanding and very professional in her approach and demeanor. She provided great counsel, and is a credit to a profession that is rife with people who are only interested in closing a sale. Although I have not yet purchased a home and my personal circumstances have changed, I will only contact Kathleen when I resume my search for a home in this area. I cannot say enough about her enthusiasm, energy, and maturity as a real estate professional! Look no further if you are seeking a realtor in this market.  STEVE B.

I am writing this letter as a small token of my appreciation. I had dealt with a REALTOR before you and the experience of buying my home proved very drab and unexciting. I was uneducated about the process and despite my multitude of questions, I never really got things answered. After one meeting with you, I had reading materials in hand plus possible real estate properties to think about. I was very impressed and knew I wanted to work with you. Kathleen, I would like to say my expectations were never let down. Your first impression is a true confession of your dedication and love for your work. You strive to do your best for your clients and after being one, I see that you have achieved this goal. You did a wonderful job at finding me a house, keeping me informed, not to mention dealing with and answering my questions. You even made sure I had reading material to learn more. I really can't tell you how much that made a difference. I was able to enjoy the experience of buying a house and I owe that all to you. Thank you, Kathleen.
Sincerely, Lakeisha Dorsey, Owner, Angel's Love Pet Sitting.

We recently purchased a property through Kathleen Floryan. Kathleen was excellent! First and foremost was her exceptional follow-up. Kathleen was prompt and professional in her return call to us and quickly earned our confidence. It was immediately clear what realtor we would be working with. Our purchase took place in just five days from viewing the prospective properties to closing the transaction and Kathleen was there every step of the way. She anticipated our needs and took the necessary steps to insure all elements of the transaction were handled efficiently. Kathleen provided a sense of caring and ownership that made this purchase an enjoyable experience. We would not consider any other realtor but Kathleen in the St. Augustine area should a future opportunity arise.
Sincerely, Paul and Liz Dake


We want to tell you how pleased we were(are) with our realtor, Kathleen Floryan. It was our lucky day when I googled in realtors in St Augustine and came up with her name. She has been wonderful and has done her job beyond any requirements I had expected. From the correspondence before we arrived in St Augustine thru our settlement and now continuing after our settlement(money had to be escrowed) we are beyond pleased. We bought a home fairly quickly as we trusted her implicitly, but even though the home was 80% completed at the time, she kept on top of everything sending us weekly pictures so we could make our own decisions as to when we would settle and if money was to be escrowed. She recommended a wonderful Home Inspector....She even found us a wonderful couple who are looking after the property in our absence. We would highly recommend her to anyone who was either listing or looking to buy a home. She always looks out for the best interests of her customer(s). We are both looking forward to continuing the friendship that developed during our buying process when we finally settle in St Augustine.
Sincerely, Vicki and Jack Ziegler


Dear Kathleen:
We want to thank you sincerely for selling our oceanfront home in a very difficult market. Your approach to marketing, professional performance, and sincere attitude went a long way toward finding a qualified buyer during a period of time when a sale of this nature was rare due to market conditions. I am sure your professional approach and persistent yet patient attitude will serve your future customers in a manner that supports your slogan of "Expect the Best". We would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and associates who might be in the market to buy or sell. Thanks again for all your patience, persistence, and professional efforts.
Sincerely, Ken and Josephine Scher


Dear Kathleen,
Well.......we are all settled in and as we look around at our beautiful new home we realize it would not have been possible without you. We wanted to take this time out to thank you and to let you know that we truly appreciate all of the things that you did for us, above and beyond the call of duty. "Extremely Full Service" is an understatement.
Trying to find a new home from 1000 miles away in a short amount of time is a major undertaking. You made it simple. We've purchased properties in our lifetime but by far working with you was the best. We were comfortable working with you from the first day that we met and that was most important to us. The first thing we said to each other was "I really like her" and from that moment on you were consistent. You demonstrated high integrity and a superb work ethic.
So again, THANK YOU! We would recommend you to everyone we know that is looking for a realtor.

Kathleen is an EXCEPTIONAL REALTOR! She truly listens to her customer's needs! She is extremely knowledgeable regarding all areas of Real Estate from the communities/neighborhoods, to prices and options for buying or selling a home. She is always responsive to any questions or concerns you have and goes above and beyond to get your answers. She worked with us for months before we came down to Florida to look for homes. Our family relocated from New York To St. Augustine and we couldn't have done it if it hadn't been for Kathleen's research and diligence in helping us find our beautiful new home. She had great ideas and recommendations and really pulled through when our criteria changed at the last minute. We would highly recommend her helping anyone with their Real Estate search. Our Family owes you a great gratitude!
