After many years of owning a condo on 30A, my wife and I made the decision to begin our search for our future Beach Home. We knew exactly what our dreams were and started meeting and working with a number of Real Estate agents during our search. After explaining that we were in no hurry and did not want to rush this process, it became obvious that most agents were out to just make a sale, as listings and information continued to be forwarded that did not meet our wants or needs. Over the course of a couple of years this became very frustrating and discouraging. After a sale fell through in July 2014, we had the pleasure of having a few phone conversations with LaRonda Kallmeyer with 30A Realty. She was recommended through a neighbor of hers and after many conversations on the phone and via email, we had the pleasure of meeting her in November, 2014. All along the months of exchanging information, LaRonda understood our expectations and our wants of our future home. she continued the search and was never pushy or became frustrated with us, as she understood that the process of purchasing a "retirement" home can be a long drawn out process. Well, after a long search, LaRonda was able to show us a home that could meet our expectations. From the beginning of our search with her, to finding the home and then throughout the offer and closing process, she conducted herself in a very professional manner, at the same time becoming a "friend and neighbor" to us. Any and all questions or concerns were addressed in a timely manner with a smile on her face at all times. Not only was LaRonda involved, the entire team at 30A Realty made sure the entire process went as smoothly as possible. Real Estate agents are "a dime a dozen" in an area like 30A, but to find a team like 30A Realty who reach out to understand your needs, is rare. Thank you to the entire team. If and when the time comes again, I will make sure 30A Realty is who gets the call to help." - Ken & Debi Heppner
My husband and I visited the Santa Rosa Beach for the first time in the fall of last year. We very quickly fell in love with the gorgeous beaches, the quirky shops and restaurants, and the friendly people. Having invested in real estate before, we decided to explore the area for an investment property. After contacting a couple of different realtors with little or no response, we somehow found LaRonda Kallmeyer. From the start, she not only listened to what we were looking for, but arranged for us to see multiple properties in a very short amount of time. When two different properties that we had put an offer on were pulled from the market by their owners, LaRonda was right there, cheering us on, and helping us pick up the pieces and move on. There was never any pressure. When we finally got an accepted offer, she held our hand through the whole process, and stayed in close contact through all the ups and downs. When all was said and done, we not only felt like we had picked the best realtor, but we also felt like we had made a new friend. I would highly recommend LaRonda, and she will be my first call for any future endeavors in the area. - Linda Hansen
Jacob has represented my wife and I in two different real estate transactions now. One was for the purchase of a waterfront bay lot and the other was for the sale of our former home, both in Walton County Florida. Jacob negotiated us a fantastic deal for our bay lot that we have built our full time house on. He also got us top dollar for our home listing on 30A. With both transactions, he was extremely courteous and answered the phone every time I called. What we love about Jacob is he is straight to the point with no unneeded fluff, it really made us trust his opinion more and set a realistic expectation for our buy and sale. He also went way out of his way to show his appreciation for our business after each closing, which meant a lot. We look forward to working with Jacob and referring any of our friends/ family to him as well for their real estate needs - Phillip P.
Matt, thank YOU. You were awesome. You always got back to me so quickly. We appreciate everything you did. We will stop in to say "hi" when we finally move there or when we visit again. I will always refer anyone down there looking for a realtor to you. - Karen Zosche
I have known Alice Forrester for thirteen years and during that time bought and sold numerous properties with 30A Realty. One of my first experiences with Alice was sitting in her office and hearing her receive many calls that weren't necessarily about real estate. They were more about "who do I call for this?" and "where do I go for that?" Everybody knows Alice and that's for a very good reason. Her honesty, integrity, knowledge and expertise has made her a respected member of the 30A community. I think of her as a real estate encyclopedia and these attributes will make her an invaluable member of your real estate team. I am confident that if Alice doesn't have firsthand knowledge of a property she will quickly find the pertinent information I need to make an informed decision. Always cheerful, always ready to help, you can count on Alice and 30 A Realty to exceed your expectations.
I commissioned Brad O’Brien of 30A Realty to sell my condo located in The Village of Blue Mountain Beach because I knew of his reputation of being highly knowledgeable about real estate on 30A. His perseverance and his knowledge of the market’s buyers was instrumental in obtaining a “more than expected” selling price for our condo. Our first two contracts fell through due to the buyers’ individual financial issues. However, Brad, due to his expertise regarding the buyers in the 30A market, had a third buyer ready almost immediately to make a generous offer, and the deal was closed shortly afterwards. I recommend Brad to anyone who is looking to buy or sell within the 30A area, especially within The Village of Blue Mountain Beach - Lauch McElhaney
LaRonda Kallmeyer is the agent to call if you are selling or buying a home in the Santa Rosa/30A area of Florida. When we needed to sell a house in the Ventana Dunes community, I searched online for an agent that had a great reputation and could help us with staging, if needed, since we live out of state. What a joy she was to work with! We found her to always be accessible, professional and eager to assist. Not only did she help us with staging, and finding contractors during the inspection phase, but her knowledge of the comps in the market, was invaluable when it came to pricing the listing and negotiating the offers we received. We made a new friend and can't wait to see her one day when we are back in the area! - Ron and Jan in Atlanta, GA
