    My Client Testimonials

    Experience Matters! Highly likely to recommend 04/10/2019 - randall agee Showed home in 2019 in Fort Walton Beach, FL. Local knowledge: 5 Star Process expertise: 5 Star Responsiveness: 5 Star Negotiation skills: 5 Star I wanted to take a moment to tell everyone about a very positive experience I had with Keith Bailey this past week. I am a newbie condo investor with some commercial real estate experience, and I have been exploring purchasing a vacation rental condo in the Destin area. I found Keith via a real estate website and we spoke on the phone quickly thereafter. Keith was very professional and took the time to educate me on all the ins and outs of vacation condo ownership. He took quite a bit of time to research properties that would be a good fit for me and sent them to me along with his cash flow analysis for each property. I flew down to meet Keith this past Saturday and he took me around to view some of the condos we thought would be a good fit. Keith was always quick to tell me the truth about each condo, and whether it would be a good fit for me. I never got the feeling he was just trying to push a condo on me to earn a commission. After returning home, he sent me a hot lead on a brand new condo that just came on the market. He did something that was quite unheard of, he allowed me to contact the owner of the condo to ask her questions directly, even though she wasn't represented by any other realtor. This impressed both me and the condo seller that Keith was so trusting of us both. Although, I have decided not to pursue buying a condo at this time due to my own personal investment preferences, I commend Keith for steering me down the right path, teaching me a ton of things and being so trusting. If you want the right guy to help you buy the right condo, Keith is your man
    Searched the Internet for agents/brokers local to the Destin, FL area. Keith's reputation on Zillow and other sites across the Internet are stellar. So, because of these reviews, we chose to reach out to Keith through Internet site that allows agents to bid to represent you. Keith offered and we accepted after several conversations. Keith Bailey helped us buy a condo site unseen. We trusted his knowledge of the area and felt like he proved his integrity over and over again. Keith is an excellent agent/broker and helped us immensely throughout the condo buying process. Keith has an excellent personality and listens to his customers. He offers critical guidance that has wisdom through years of living and working in the northwest Florida region. Jefferey Hancock Georgia
    "Keith was solid at every aspect of the home selling process, from the initial assessment as to the valuation of the house, to dealing with a difficult situation in terms of actually showing the property, to negotiating with the buyers, and ultimately, to nailing down the details on the closing. Super-nice guy, managed to smooth over every wrinkle that came up in the process - and there are always wrinkles! Highly recommended." Bob Rebitz, San Francisco (Seller)
    Keith Bailey was referred to us by way of a friend that had recently used Keith Bailey Realtor to help him sell and purchase a new home. We were first time buyers and new that we had to hire an experienced, knowledgeable and full time real estate professional to guide us through this complex process. Mr. Bailey's knowledge of the market, property values, contracts, communication and negotiation skills were impeccable. We also found Keith's closing coordinator to be of great value. Keith oversaw the contract negotiation, appraisal, home inspection, termite inspection and above all connected us with a first class lender. We found the process to be easy and hassle free. We highly recommend Keith Bailey as your next realtor if you are considering buying or selling. Carter Day, Santa Rosa Beach
    My husband and I are relocating from Orlando to the Destin Area due to a job transfer. We were so lucky to find Keith. He quickly determined our needs and was so patient showing us the entire area from one end to the other so that we could figure out where we wanted to live. His extensive knowledge of the area was critical. He always acted professionally when dealing with other realtors and owners and in negotiating our contracts and offers. Keith was incredibly responsive. We would call, text or email and he would reply immediately regardless of whether it was early in the morning, evening or weekend. Keith is a genuine person who really cares that you find the home that's right for you. We will definitely be friends with Keith for years to come and recommend him to our friends and colleagues. Danny and Chris
    I used Keith Bailey to purchase the home 4 years ago and it was a 2 yr long process because of it being a short sale. He was very knowledgeable and worked diligently to secure the purchase for my husband and I. We kept in touch while we owned the home, as a friendship was made during the purchase. I always knew I would use Keith when it came time to sell. He is very professional, honest, and extremely knowledgeable of the market in the area. It was a pleasure to work with him again on the selling side of things. Everything ran super smooth, we could not have asked for an easier transaction. Keith was able to answer all of our questions in a timely manner, kept us up to date on the statistics of showings, web viewings, etc. I would highly recommend Keith if you want a highly knowledgeable, personable, and honest realtor on the Emerald Coast! Christina VIa-Reque, Lakewood Ranch, FL
    Keith Bailey went above and beyond what we expected in regards to marketing and ultimately selling our home. He helped us price our home to sell for a fair price. Keith marketed our home so it would get the best price possible. We would highly recommend Keith Bailey to list your home, that is if you want to see a "sold" sign on your property. Ray and Linda Santa Rosa Beach
    Keith was a great help with making my home buying experience go as smooth as possible. I live in Georgia and through his eyes, he made sure the items I was looking for (family friendly area , purchase value and resale value) were met. He also kept me up to date during the purchase timeline on things to do on my end to make the closing go hassle free! William Dolph, Dacula GA
    I would recommend Keith and Emerald Coast Destin to anyone who asked. Gary Rusnak, Santa Rosa beach
    Keith was an absolute blessing to my family and I. We are a military family and had no knowledge of the area or the housing market. Not only did he find us the best home possible for us he made the process as easy as you could imagine. You cant ask for a better guy or realtor. Thanks Keith!! Zach Parshall

    How to Know When a Home is Worth Buying

    To buy a home, or to not buy a home. It's a common debate for many people. There's no denying that renting is basically paying for someone else's monthly mortgage without receiving any equity from the property, but that does not always mean that buying a home is the better option for each individual. Everyone's situation is different, and home buying can be expensive. People's lifestyles also change and their motives for wanting to buy a house are just as varied. Determining whether or not it's ...
