    My Client Testimonials

    We didn't even consider any other real estate agents. When you've dealt with THE BEST before, you go back and deal with her again! Alana Jeltema has helped our family with multiple sales/purchases, and we believe there is no one who can get the job done like she can. Her sales materials are BEAUTIFULLY done! And, we were very impressed with all the different methods she used to reach potential buyers. She goes above and beyond, in SO many ways. In classifying her skills and characteristics, we've come to the conclusion that there needs to be another classification above EXCELLENT when someone DOES IT ALL!!!!! Thank you, Alana, for being there for us. Though we were faced with multiple issues, you GOT THE JOB DONE - and we appreciate every minute you've taken away from your family to help ours. She's the best!" Rhonda & Norman Vogel (Seller) (4 transactions and multiple referrals)
    Alana exceeded my expectations as a realtor. As a first time home buyer, she helped me with all of my questions and concerns, and always got back with me very quickly. From initiating financing to closing she has been 100% awesome! Couldn't have asked for a better realtor! Allinee Lavinge - Buyer
    Alana helped us identify what items were needed (repairs and staging) prior to putting our 9.5 year home on the market. She was instrumental in giving us the guidance in order to stage the home appropriately. She also had contacts that were readily available for repairs and maintenance items that needed to be handled. What stands out the most was Alanas innate ability to help us (me) control our emotions and help us (me) make good sound decisions. I have bought and sold many homes over my 55 years of age and Alana is by far the most exceptional agent I have dealt with. When your considering a buy, sell or both I strongly recommend Alana Jeltema!!! Scott Morin Parrish (seller and buyer) (2 transactions and referrals)
    Under contract in 19 days at 98% of our asking price. Always there to answer our questions. Present and on time at all important steps along the way. Never pushy, always pleasant, keeping our best interests in mind. Alana exceeded our expectations and she will do the same for you! What more do you need to know? Tim and Ruthann Pillsbury, Seller and Buyer
    Working with Alana made selling our home a worry free experience. Her knowledge and expertise helped guide us through each step of the process and her willingness to accommodate our requests and needs made the process that much more seamless. We highly recommend Alana to our all our friends and family looking for the same level of service and comfort in buying or selling a home. Thanks Alana for all your help! Kevin and April Christman - Seller
    Alana Jeltema is the realtor you need! She is the most caring and patient person, putting up with all our crazy questions as we put a contract on a short sale and had to work through all the up's and down's of negotiations. And then when we realized we were going to get our dream home - then she quickly and efficiently sold our current home in just 23 days! She made the transition of both transactions as easy as possible, reviewing every document for us, and assisting us with obtaining a loan, home warranty and homeowners insurance, She doesn't leave any stone unturned. She's there for you every step of the way. Thanks, Alana. We will never forget the knowledge and professional attitude that you bring to the job - and the friendship that follows! Norman and Rhonda Vogel, Seller and Buyer
    As new comers to Florida, Alana helped us with our dream of becoming homeowners! She presented us with different programs and new buyer options. She was extremely professional and knowledgable. She always took the time to answer any questions that we might have and if she didn't have the answer she made sure she got us an answer in a timely manner. It was a pleasure working with Alana. She made the whole process go by smoothly. I highly recommend Alana for all your real estate needs. Nick and Yolanda Rodriguez, Buyer
    I met Alana through my parent's neighborhood Facebook site. I contacted her, and we set up an appointment to go over my wants and needs for a home. She was very attentive and made great suggestions for what are some great areas to live (I had just moved here, and didn't know anything about Florida). She created a search so when any new houses came on the market, I would be able to see them. Once I decided I would like to build a new home instead of purchasing an older home..., she walked through the entire process with me, in detail. She was always available for any additional questions and sat with me through signing my contact and closing documents when the time came. She went above and beyond, going to walk-throughs with me and helping to point out items I never would have thought about checking. Alana made the home buying process very easy, even for someone as naïve as I was to everything. She has not only been an amazing realtor, but a great friend. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell. Kristen Hodges - Buyer
    Alana is a very patient and helpful realtor. I was quite picky in the home I wanted and was not willing to compromise. She did not have any realtor tricks so to speak because she was very up front and honest. Alana showed me tons of homes and never pressured me about any of them, she made me very comfortable and at ease during the entire process. I have an inflexible work schedule, 8 to 5pm job on weekdays and Alana had the flexibility to show me homes during lunch, week nights and even weekends. Shes open to different ways to communicate the texting helped me a lot while I was at work! She always kept me updated with the closing status and I never felt like I was left in the dark with unknowns. Thank you Alana. Kristina Calvin - Seller and Buyer
    We have had the pleasure of working with Alana through two transactions, the selling of our previous home and the purchase of our current home. We have never worked with a more caring, conscientious and detail oriented professional. She went above and beyond through every aspect of our experiences with her. We would wholeheartedly recommend her without any hesitation whatsoever! Michael and Peggy Moore - Seller and Buyer
    We utilized Alana Jeltema's help selling our home, and buying a new one. She was professional and very responsive to any questions or concerns from the get go. She was in constant contact with us. She provided us with good information on what needed to be done before and during the listing of our home. She did the same when we were looking for a new place to buy. She was always, and still is, available to us via email, phone or text. She was EXTREMELY helpful and ABSOLUTELY went above and beyond what we would have expected from a realtor. We will definitely call on her again when the need arises. We have already highly recommended her to a couple friends & family members! Thank you so much, Alana! John and Angelove Moore
    Alana was great to work with. She was always there when needed and very helpful. If we had any questions or concerns she was always there to help and provide the necessary information. She also helped by taking pictures of our house in progress when we were not able to make it. We definitely recommend her and are glad we had her as our realtor. Brian and Melissa Lopes, Buyer
    Alana Jeltema made selling my Florida home a breeze. She was with me every step of the way. My selling process began with her helpful tips on how to stage my home for photos and virtual tours. She was always available for showings and set-up open houses. My home was posted on numerous real estate websites and MLS listings. She continued her hard work through all the final paperwork needed for a contract and closing. Her knowledge, reliability, and determination is what made selling my home a success story. I could not have sold my home without all of her help. If I ever needed to sell another home, I would not hesitate to have Alana Jeltema represent me and my home again.  Michael and Renee Church - Seller
    My husband and I were extremely fortunate to have chosen Alana Jeltema to be our real estate agent. Our circumstances were unique in that we lived in NY and were needing to sell our house in Florida. Miles away, Alana made us feel secure and comfortable every step of the way. She was patient, trustworthy, considerate of our needs and made what at times seemed challenging, stress free. We highly recommend Alana to anyone who is looking into real estate. Alana made our experience wonderful and we believe she would do the same for you. Calvin and Amy Balfour- Seller
    We had a wonderful experience working with Alana in purchasing/building our first home. Shes very knowledgable and never made me feel bad or stupid for asking a lot of questions. Again, it was our first big purchase and we were building so we had a ton of questions: things we may have forgotten to ask the builders about she reminded us to and was super helpful during our final walk through. I really recommended working with her! You will not be disappointed! David and Julie Cobb Deering - Buyer
    Alana was amazing! We had a short time to get the house sold and she made it happen! She went above and beyond her realtor duties to help me get the house ready for showings, from repairs to running over to turn lights on for showings! She was friendly, professional, helpful, and caring! I would highly recommend using Alana if you need to sell your home! Michael and Kristina Bosch - Seller
