Binki is an outstanding agent. She knows the area, knows most of the other agents and is a pleasure to work with. She arranged for interior and aerial photography which showcased our home beautifully, we sold within DAYS! Great agent and great experience! 

- Allison M.

I have bought and sold many homes over the years. This was my second time working with Binki. She is fabulous! Very knowledgeable and made the process easy and smooth. Wish I can take her to Ohio with me. She's the best! Thanks Binki!!!!

I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with Ms. Carol Rathmann as a Realtor. Throughout the entire process Carol conducted herself professionally, conscientiously and was deeply committed. Carol scheduled all meetings and interactions at my convenience and provide me with great advice about how to prepare my home for sale. Carol went well beyond her duties and supplied me with respected and reasonable contractors to do repairs that help in getting my house ready for sale. Overall Carol provide me with outstanding advice about how to prepare my home for sale. She returned all calls promptly and had a prelife of the house available for all prospective buyers in addition to having advertisement in place immediately after the house was ready to be listed.

I rarely give "perfect" ratings, but do so enthusiastically in this case. Joan helped my husband and I buy a townhouse in 2005, when the market was hopping. She's a very experienced agent who knows the market inside and out, then and today. During the search we were buoyed up by her energy and can-do attitude. Her insight and sharp eye were invaluable in helping us find the right place. Negotiation through closing, she was very effective at representing us, and making things happen in a smooth and timely fashion. Since then I've relied on her to find tenants for our place a number of times. She's pro-active, and careful to make sure that what needs to get done is done. Given that I live out of state, it's especially nice to know I can count on Joan to get it rented.

I recently purchased a home through my real estate agent, Lisa Ellison, from National Realty. I am very grateful for the help I received through the process, as this was my first home purchase. Lisa took the time to forward necessary documents for me as I did not have access to electronic means for communication. She was involved every step of the way, and made what I thought would be a complicated process into an understandable one. She was also able to pair me up with an excellent financing agent and I was able to secure the mortgage. If anyone is in the market to purchase a home, I would highly recommend contacting Lisa Ellison. She stays on top of available properties and will give you excellent advice on how to and what is needed to purchase. I noticed that she also has great repoire with many of the other area real estate agents which helps a great deal when in negotiations.

I could not have asked for better service, a better deal or a nicer person!

Laura Boles is not your ordinary Realtor. We have been using Laura as our Realtor since the first time we bought our house and still using her without any worries. She has helped my mom find her 1st home and now her 2nd home. We have used her for a friend, and everyone is extremely happy with their home. She is blunt, smart and she gets the job done. Love you Laura

- Zerin Sless

Vicci is professional, caring, patient and understanding.

- Daysi Slemp

Kelli has been the greatest Realtor I've had the pleasure of knowing. She always replies right away to all of my requests, & even came over to help me hang my hurricane shutters! If you're looking for a seamless experience with a Realtor who really cares, she's the one for you!

- Theresa

Well we finally made it. The two lots closed today and I received the proceeds. Thank you so much for your efforts on this sale. I am extremely pleased with your efforts and· your extra time in waiting out and working with the title problems. If I can ever be of any help in recommending you to other sellers, please do not hesitate to give them my name and contact information. I am sorry we never had the chance to meet first hand, but I really enjoyed working with you.

I’m writing you to let you know how thankful both my wife and I are in regard to working with Jessica Lagios in finding our new home.  During this stressful time with me relocating from NY to Melbourne Florida for work, and my wife staying in NY due to personal reasons, Jessica listened to our needs and was so patient working over the phone for months before my move, so when I got down to Florida, I understood the area and the homes for sale.

During my look see (one day) back in July, Jessica spent so much time mapping out the houses we wanted to see in that one day that we were able to see 10 homes in such a quick period of time.  She also went out of her way to show us the area surrounding the homes in West Viera such as shopping, the new outside mall and the local hospital.  This helped us decide that we loved the area and wanted to purchase a home in Viera.

My relocation took place on September 26 which at that time, I had a lot of houses to see and Jessica put aside so much time to show me all of them.  She was very patient with me, even though I wanted to see all of them (44 homes) so I didn’t miss out on the one that could be our new home.  She truly understood our needs, was professional and made the home search a pleasure.

It’s been 25 years since my last home purchase and being new to the area and not knowing what to do, Jessica walked me through what was needed and made this so easy.  To summarize my appreciation I want National Realty to know that with the assistance of Jessica and her patience and professionalism I am purchasing a home in just one month of relocating and would recommend her to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell a home.

- Alan & Donna Trebitz

It was a pleasure working with Binki. This was not the first time I bought a house but my first time buying in FL. Binki is very professional and was there every step of the way in the house buying process. Not to mention very patient while looking at properties and answering questions. After, the offer was made, she always answered the phone and found the answers I was seeking. Binki you ROCK! Thank you. 

- Janene

Binki was early to our first appointment (and every appointment thereafter) and I immediately knew that we had the ideal realtor. Binki clearly knew what to look for in a house, neighborhood, upgrades, positioning on the lot - I could go on and on. Whenever I had a concern, Binki always had a plan B…and C. We normally find a house within two weeks and are an easy close. This time around we kept running into hiccups and Binki stayed with us, positive and professional as the first time we met, clear through to the end after six months. Having worked in the area for decades, Binki had fabulous contacts for us from bankers to maid services. Wherever we showed up, everyone knew Binki and greeted us happily. It was very reassuring and comforting to know she was in our corner. I would recommend Binki to anyone from first time home buyers to out of towners to investment buyers. I can't imagine there is anything Binki hasn't seen in her career that she can't handle with a smile.

- The Runskes

Binki Kaiser did a tremendous job selling our home. After thoroughly helping us prepare to list, she was attentive, assertive, and had a contract on our home within a week!  Her extensive market knowledge, strategy expertise, and reassurance to us as first time sellers make her #1 in our book!  We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.  Binki is devoted and dependable and you can trust that she's looking out for you!

- Katie H.

Jessica was a valued and essential partner in our home search and purchase. She understood our needs and found us our dream home in the first week. Her knowledge of the area, school systems, and market was exceptional. Jessica was a tremendous asset and much appreciated advisor throughout the negotiations, inspections, and close. She went above and beyond our expectations of an agent. Thank you Jessica!

- Michael and Darlene Oakley

Thank you for everything Sending a note of special thanks or your expertise, experience and help in selling our home. We really appreciate everything you have done to make this happen so quickly. You’re a Top Notch Professional and it shows!!

- Mike and Mia Gamelgaard

Kelli helps us with our rental property and has been amazing! She is always available and easy to work with. We highly recommend her for your next purchase or property management needs.

- James and Denora

Joan helped us buy a lot, and sell our house. She is very responsive and knowledgeable. I hope to work with her again next time we need a realtor.

- Mark VanHeden

I would like to highly recommend Tanya Powers As a skilled real estate agent. Tanya Powers works with National Realty in Palm Bay Florida. She had heard that we were interested in purchasing a new home and contacted us about two different homes. She made appointments on the same day and showed us the first house. We did not buy that house but after looking at we saw another one that we were more interested in and made an offer and went to Escrow in two days. We closed in 9 days. Tanya Powers was excellent in every aspect of our making this purchase as our primary residence. She recommended Honor construction and Home Inspections to do the pre-purchase inspection with whom we were very well pleased. If you're looking for a realtor who will work hard to find you the right house or sell your house and Market it, representing you and your property well, Tanya is your girl.

- Stephen and Nancy White

We needed to find a house in a short period of time to purchase. Laura was very helpful and responsive and found a house fairly quickly that fit our needs and got inspections lined up and the closing scheduled in a short time. We all were pleased with her dedication to our dilemma and time she took to work on our needs. Very professional and friendly.

- Song L.

We worked with Jessica Lagios to sell our home. Right from the beginning, she was very professional and went above and beyond what we expected. She did an amazing job on our house listing and marketing of our home. Jessica was always very easy to reach. She was very organized, and thanks to her knowledge, attention to detail, and hard work, our house sold in a short time. We will definitely use her for any future realty needs!

- Dr. Dominic Roppa and Dr. Kara Marshall-Roppa

Jim significantly exceeded our expectations of a realtor with his exceptional performance. His professionalism is unsurpassed and his super attitude and great sense of being earned our deepest appreciation and respect. Jim's pleasant personality and commitment to us eventually led us to know him as a friend. We feel Jim is an extremely valuable asset to your group.

- Marion (Sonny) and Toni Zieglerm

I just wanted to tell you how pleased we are with the services you provided us in selling our Huntington Lakes home on Balle Circle in Rockledge. Your professional service and great attitude in listing our home, pricing it and then, best of all, selling it in a week for more than we thought it was worth. I have recommended your real estate services to several of my colleagues. Again, thanks for your professional service and the great job you did for us.

- Ben Inghram

Well we finally made it. The two lots closed today and I received the proceeds. Thank you so much for your efforts on this sale. I am extremely pleased with your efforts and· your extra time in waiting out and working with the title problems. If I can ever be of any help in recommending you to other sellers, please do not hesitate to give them my name and contact information. I am sorry we never had the chance to meet first hand, but I really enjoyed working with you.

- Robert M. Rowlinson

Kelly is very knowledgeable and works really hard to make sure you get a good price and your house sells!

- Gina Berard

Bill and I are so appreciative of all that you did to help us find a home. We love it here and (for us) it was worth the lengthy search! I have to say that all the looking we did provided us with all kinds of ideas as well as knowledge of the area thanks to your expertise. I am amazed every time I go somewhere new, only to realize I know where I am! So helpful! We absolutely keep you in mind as we talk to people who are considering a move. I can not praise your help and expertise enough! Thanks and Hugs.

- Marge and Bill

Joan helped us buy our home. She was very helpful walking us through each and every step along the way and was very knowledgable in answering all of our questions. Not only "would I use her again?" , I am using her again. I definately would recommend her to my friends.

- Shari Budnick

Great realtor! Very motivated and helpful throughout the entire process. Extremely responsive and goes above and beyond for her clients. We had already moved to another state and had to sell the house long distance. She was our eyes and ears throughout the process and everything went smoothly.

- Susan Hall

In less than 24 hours, 3 people submitted great offers, one offer was a “full price cash” offer! We agreed to the offer and a 2 week closing. “Slam dunk” until legal issues with our guardianship occurred due to our attorney’s office neglected to file an important paper that delayed the closing by 30 days. Mr. Solazzo’s amazing negotiating skills held the deal together. His knowledge, business acumen, negotiating skills were all needed to hold the “slam dunk” deal that could have been lost with a lesser realtor. Mr. Salazzo handles the unknown.

- Rev. Janis L. Dey

Such a great job. You really went above and beyond, not only with all the time consuming formalities, which we all know were too numerous to mention, but also with your quick response time and genuine concern for my situation.  At times, it seemed like a lost cause but sticking it out with you proved to be the best decision.  Both of you were so helpful and I want it to be known to whomever you work with as well as prospective buyers and sellers.  I am glad, (more like relieved), the sale is concluded but I will always put you both at the top of the list for being professional and honest and of course #1 for future referrals. Hope to see you both again someday.  Best of luck.

- Edward Matthews

Superb! Joan worked so hard to get me into a property that met all my needs! Even with a broken hand, she kept working without a hitch. I would highly recommend Joan! Most professional, dedicated, direct, to the point, ... GETS THE JOB DONE!!!

- Joan Summers Keane

I am so thankful to have had you as my agent.  I genuinely felt that I had someone who understood my needs and wants, always paying attention to my desires. From our initial meeting to closing you were polite, never pushy, and completely honest.  You made a stressful endeavor a joy with all your great knowledge.  I found you to be well acquainted in all aspects in the approach of home buying. You negotiated hard and really represented my interest throughout the purchase process. You are a true professional, and I thank you so much for everything you did during the purchase of my beautiful new home.  It’s just what I wanted.

- Bea Petrucci

Throughout the process of selling my home, at 1815 Wayne Dr., Melbourne, FL, I found Kelli Ryan of National Realty to be skilled and sociable in the performance of their craft. I would highly recommend them to family and friends.

- Dolores Rayen

"Gail is the most dedicated realtor I have ever met!! She returned my phone call with in seconds. After that she was full speed ahead. She set up viewings in a day and was completely honest with me on what she thought about each and every house we looked at or didn't look at because I trusted her expert advice 200%. I highly recommend Gail and will tell everyone I know or come across to make sure they call her. She is the BEST!!"

- Beth W

We are about to become residents of a beautiful townhome in a safe, quiet, quaint community at Capron Ridge in Melbourne FL thanks to a treasure of your office, Charlie Pruett. We started our search unrepresented, had a terrible time finding a home in FL as it is very difficult to find a place unseen being in upstate NY, and had a few bad runs with other realty companies. Then we met Charlie Pruett via phone from one of his house rentals. He was very professional, reasured us that he would find us a place as quickly as possible, and asked us about things that were important for us to have in our home. Within hours Charlie sent listings that fit our description of a perfect home. He has an uncanny ability to read his clients. He puts this quality to work exclusively for his clients' interests. By listening to us and our individual taste.

- Jacqueline Ronco & Joan Ronco

I would like to thank you so much for all your great help. You have been the best Realtor I have ever worked with. I am going to be working with you in the future.

- Sonja

I have known Joan socially for over thirty years, and the same attributes that make her a good friend, make her a good realtor. She's efficient and organized and she listens to what you say and doesn't waste your time showing you things that don't fit your needs and wants. I'd highly recommend Joan!

- Pam Gatto

Laura went above and beyond, I could not have asked for a better experience buying my first home. She made this fast, stress free experience go so smooth. I am so happy and thankful for her making this happen for me.

- user3242780

Joan located homes for us 3 times, she was a gem to work with. She responded quickly, listened to concerns, and provided alternate options to address them. She treated us like family, making sure we ended up in safe and secure locations being that we were not from the area we had no idea. She followed up with us after we settled in and checked in with me, while my husband was deployed. Knowing Joan would be my realtor makes me want to go house hunting every weekend.

- Regina Minderman

Kelli Ryan was very helpful in helping us find a home and gave us great tips throughout the entire process! We highly recommend Kelli as your Realtor for your buying and selling needs as she was very knowledgeable on both ends. She was super nice and had the patients of a saint with us, even though we couldn't make up our minds on what we exactly were looking for. She stayed in contact with us daily and we couldn't have asked for a better realtor! Thank you so much for all your help Kelli!!

- Dawn Marie

From the moment we met Joan, we felt as if we were her top priority. She never hesitated to return our calls, listened to everything we asked for, and we are so happy that she helped us find our dream house. She is the absolute best! We highly recommend her to anyone who needs the services of a great realtor!

- Harry Merlet

From start to finish, we had a totally pleasant experience. Joan was extremely helpful and friendly. Our daughter and son-in-law had used her last Spring and were also very happy. If we were to move again, Joan would be our first choice!

- Noreen Christensen

Due to an employment relocation we were to become 1st time home sellers. After interviewing 3 realtors, we chose Jessica Lagios from National Realty Suntree office. The entire process was a positive experience. Jessica was a true professional. She communicated with us daily which was important as we had left the area prior to the listing. Thanks to her due diligence and networking skills our home was shown so often that we received comments from our neighbors remarking on the sales traffic. When we perceived negotiations to be getting heated she kept us focused. We can't thank her enough for making what could've been a difficult situation into a remarkably easy journey. We highly recommend you consider Jessica Lagios for your future real estate needs.

- Larry Short

Fantastic, innovative agent. Works hard and helps whenever needed. Upfront and honest. Highly recommend. 

- Angie H.

The process of buying and selling a home is one of the most difficult undertakings a homeowner can experience. Your agent, Mr. Vincent Solazzo is quite the professional, his knowledge, understanding and the consideration he shows his clients is outstanding.

- Arlene & Tom Saccente

Vicci Vaughan helped us through both processes and we are very thankful that we had Vicci to guide us to perfectly satisfied solutions. Selling and purchasing properties in Brevard County at this time can be challenging and it's imperative that you have an agent willing to go the extra mile. Vicci didn't mind showing us a home late on a Sunday evening and her suggestion is now our beautiful home. Vicci is part of a team of realtors and office personnel which makes National Realty a perfect choice for your home buying or selling. Vicci became our friend during our home purchase process and we are grateful for her guidance. We could not have completed this process without her.

- Richard and Connie Smith

Gail always went the extra mile to ensure I was able to see a wide variety of properties and was especially accommodating for requests with short notice. Her knowledge of the real estate market was very important to me as I was not from the area. She did an excellent job of keeping me in the loop of the various steps from initial offer to final closing.

- Mike J.

I randomly picked Kelli Ryan of National Realty from google while searching for a realtor to sell a family condo in Melbourne Florida. I live out of state and thought the process would be long and difficult. Kelli answered the phone right away, and the condo was listed and sold (at a higher price than we expected) within 30 days! I have purchased and sold two homes prior to this and never has a realtor been more professional, on point and attentive than Kelli. Phone calls never went unanswered. All questions and concerns were addressed timely and with compassion to our situation of selling a family home. (She had to deal with 4 owners on the property deed for the sale) It was the most efficient, professional sale I've been a part of. I would highly recommend Kelli to anyone considering listed or buying their home in the Florida area. You will not be disappointed. Heather Van Arsdel Plattsburgh, NY

I recently purchased a home through my real estate agent, Lisa Ellison, from National Realty. I am very grateful for the help I received through the process, as this was my first home purchase. Lisa took the time to forward necessary documents for me as I did not have access to electronic means for communication. She was involved every step of the way, and made what I thought would be a complicated process into an understandable one.  She was also able to pair me up with an excellent financing agent and I was able to secure the mortgage.

If anyone is in the market to purchase a home, I would highly recommend contacting Lisa Ellison. She stays on top of available properties and will give you excellent advice on how to and what is needed to purchase.  I noticed that she also has great repoire with many of the other area real estate agents which helps a great deal when in negotiations.

- Alicia Allen, Fl

Laura was key to my home purchase experience being a huge success. She was professional, friendly and great to work with. I was moving here from out of state and was unfamiliar with the area. To make sure I was comfortable with the area I ended up buying in, she drove me around and showed me where shopping, schools, etc were located. She listened to my list of requirements and wants and didn't waste my time showing me homes that did not meet my criteria. I am so happy with the home I bought, and the location is so perfect. I have recommended her to friends and If I ever need another house, I will definitely call Laura.

- Vicki Hock

Jessica is great to work with! She's friendly, helpful, and always answered my never ending stream of questions! Even after I closed on my new home she made sure everything was taken care of. I appreciated having her expertise and, more than anything, knowing that she was there to provide advice and help whenever I needed it!

- Mike Storti

You would be doing yourself a huge disservice if you did not hire Kelli Ryan as your Professional Realtor. I'll start with Knowledgeable. I am not familiar with Florida at all. I relocated to the state 2 years ago. I did not live in the area I decided to purchase in. I spoke with Kelli and described my dream home to her. I'd also mentioned that I knew what I wanted was way out of my price range but I would be happy if she could find something remotely close to what I wanted. I just knew I wasn't going to be able to get the 1 feature I couldn't live without in my 1st purchase so I was prepared to settle with whatever she could find. Well, not only was she able to find that 1 thing I needed, she found EVERYTHING I wanted and some bonus features. On top of that, she negotiated a great price. She took time to educate me on the schools in the area as well. What really set Kelli apart from other Realtors was her responsiveness. She won't say it but I will, I WAS SUPER ANNOYING. My anxiety was through the roof as a 1st time home buyer and I was very pessimistic about everything. She was always calming and reassuring. It took the owners until 11pm to make a decision on our offer and Kelli stayed up and kept me updated every step of the way. Weekdays, weekend, after hours, late hours, I was always able to reach her. She worked hard to make my dream come true and she made it look effortless. Even after my purchase, she still kept in touch to see how things were coming. Her messages weren't cliche. They were truly genuine. I did not feel like just another commission for her. She honestly made me feel like a friend! Don't cheat yourself by going another direction. Take my advice and use Kelli Ryan! You will not be disappointed. 

- Joyce T.

Thank you Judith for all the help you have given me getting through the condo finding and purchasing process. You really bailed me out that night I took possession of the condo when you got a plumber in there right away. I didn’t even have a screwdriver not to mention a wrench to try and stop the leak in the main water shutoff valve. Things like that are what make you an exceptional realtor. In this day and age service like that just doesn’t happen much anymore. If you ever have clients that want a past customer reference, put me at the top of your list.

- Randy

Binki sold our house in less than three days! Binki is very professional and knowledgeable. She provided us with an excellent marketing strategy, including professional interior and aerial photography highlighting our property features. She responded immediately to all our questions. We highly recommend Binki if you need to sell or buy a house. 

- Juan & Maria E.

Thank YOU ! You have been so helpful throughout this entire time, Best Realtor ever!

- Mark Siewers

Thank you for the recent sale of our home in Palm Bay, Florida. You kept us informed of all details involved. Your suggestions that would promote the sale were very helpful. Your honesty is unbelievable. We appreciate the time you spent selling the left over items. Thank you for the check we received from those items. Good Luck to you!!

- Thelma and Carl Kirk

I worked with Jessica Lagios to purchase my first home in Brevard say the least her service level was spectacular. Not only is she super professional but personable. From the moment we met, she was attentive and accommodating. I relocated here for work and wanted to find a home within two months. She helped me find a home within the first week of relocation and we closed less than eight weeks later. She guided me through each step and was patient, caring, and supportive. Buying a home can be indeed stressful...but if I or any of my loved ones have to do it again...I will definitely refer them to her. She is outstanding and I am glad to have made her a friend!

- Ashlee Thomas

Pam Harrell came highly recommended when I was looking for a good realtor to sell my Florida house. She exceeded my highest expectations.  Pam is very knowledgeable about all facets of real estate and is able to explain and cheerfully guide you through the process. Coupled with a wonderful sense of humor, a ready laugh, Pam is a “people” person. She kept in contact with me and returned my phone calls promptly. Pam is realistic and works very hard to get the best price for her clients. Yet she is always smiling because she loves her job.  I was very glad that she was my realtor and became my friend.

- J.A

I thoroughly enjoyed having Lisa as my real estate agent for the sale of my home. She worked very hard on my behalf: explaining the process; making suggestions to enhance the features of my home; working with other interested agents; responding quickly to any questions or concerns that I had; and besides that, she’s a wonderful person!

- Reskhs

We are finally finished with renovations and settling in. We want to thank all your staff for their help with our purchasing experience especially agent Diane DeYorgi. She went above and beyond our expectations that led to a positive conclusion. Wishing you the best of holiday seasons.

- Bob and Kay Mulligan

Joan Bradley assisted us with the purchase of a condominium in Melbourne, Florida. She went above and beyond and worked very hard to help us move through the process of purchasing from a seller who lived outside of the United States. We cannot thank Joan enough for her patience, diligence, and commitment to helping us through multiple obstacles and delays created by the seller's location and scheduling issues. Thank you, Joan!

- Mindy F

Laura was a great realtor to work with who helped me purchase my recent home. Every step of the way was on it and take care of everything and constantly followed up with everyone to make sure things were getting done!
