Brenda Donnelly was recommended to me by a close friend who had used her to help him and his wife purchase a house in Key West almost one year ago. On my friend’s advice, I interviewed Brenda and subsequently engaged her to help me find my dream house in Key West. My search began in January, 2015. I write this hearty endorsement six weeks after closing on a property Brenda found for me that wasn’t even on the market when she described it to me. Because Brenda showed me twenty-one houses and enthusiastically and professionally guided me through a sometimes torturous purchasing process (made so by a truly difficult seller), I can think of NO better broker to use, particularly if the sale involves large numbers, great detail and an encyclopedic understanding of current local market conditions. I almost forgot: while it appears that Brenda rarely sleeps, I was also greatly impressed by the caliber of her top-notch support staff. Bottom line: Brenda was a superb choice. If and when I ever decide to sell my house, I’ll just call Brenda and I’ll do so with utter confidence. She’s that good!

We first hired Brenda and her team in 2012 after interviewing multiple realtors in Key West to help us with marketing and management of a rental property. We were impressed with her knowledge of the local market and her plan to increase our income. She delivered. In mid 2014 we asked her to find a second rental property in Old Town Key West. Once more, she found us a property that she felt was underpriced relative to peers. Once more she was right and we have been able to both increase prices and days rented. Most recently in 2015 Brenda helped us sell a home at a price point that was higher than any other realtor thought possible. In fact it established a new high per square foot for the community. Since we don’t live in Florida we needed more help than a local buyer might need. For example She made timely referrals to top local professionals to help us dispose of unneeded furniture.

My husband and I bought our home from Brenda and happily recommend her and her staff to buyers — and sellers. Brenda knows the Key West market perhaps better than most. She quickly understood our needs and requirement and showed us homes that exactly met them. No wasted time or effort. When it came contract and negotiation time — on a particularly difficult purchase — Brenda stayed on top of the details and made sure we got the home of our dreams. Since our purchase, Brenda has assisted us as we undertook a complete renovation and she remains a friend, just as she promised.

Brenda brokered the sale of our Key West Florida house. We were extremely satisfied with her knowledge of the market and the “beyond the call of duty” steps she took which lead to a successful sale.

Brenda was invaluable to the home buying process. She was responsive, knowledgeable, and accessible. Not being from the area, but knowing that I wanted a home with specific criteria, Brenda was able to guide us to the right neighborhood for what we wanted. She kept us informed throughout the process which resulted in us finding the perfect house!

Brenda Donnelly and her team are second to none when it comes to Key West real estate! My expectations were exceeded every step of the way — and the process is long — as Brenda and her team kept my best interest at heart. Brenda’s keen knowledge of the housing inventory (past and present) was critical in the process. Even post closing, Brenda continues to impress us with her connections and recommendations.

Brenda did not just find us a house, she got to know us and our circumstances, and found us a beautiful and perfect home – one that we absolutely love, had everything we wanted and more, and a home where we can raise our little boy. She walked us through every detail, and left no detail undone. Through it all, she became part of our little family. With her patience, persistence, and attention to detail, you know she will get the deal closed. She often worked behind the scenes to make sure everything was taken care of, even before we knew about it. There is no other person on earth that can do what she does with the grace that she does it. I can’t say enough that Brenda is the right person for you if you are buying or selling a home in Key West.

Brenda was incredibly professional and personable. She had an excellent grasp of the market and found us our Key West dream home where other agents had failed us. And when the sale hit some bumps as often happens when buying real estate, Brenda went above and beyond to make everything right and ensure we got our home!

Brenda and her team were phenomenal. We can’t say enough positive things about the team and our experience working with them. They were incredibly responsive, helpful, patient, knowledgeable, etc. No request was or is too much. She is not just trying to sell a house. She listens, demonstrates she cares and works hard for you as a client. She builds a relationship with you and works as an advocate for you. She works to find the best match for you. She does not pressure you. She educates you where desired. We felt truly blessed to have met her and have her as a guide through the process. We not only purchased a home, but gained a friend in the process. She has continued to help us beyond the house purchase. You could not be in better hands.

Brenda is a spectacular agent who puts her client’s needs above everything. We have bought several properties with her and she was able to counsel, negotiate and bring to fruition our desires and dreams. We have and will continue to recommend her to friends without reservation.
