He is relentless in working for you. We have chosen Kent twice now and he has helped us in both selling and buying a home
Kent provided valuable advice from the outset, including the appropriate price point base on area comps and advice regarding renovations and improvements that undoubtedly increased the sale price. His background as a general contractor was highly beneficial in retaining everyone from plumbers to electricians and subcontractors to assist with our old and new homes. His professionalism, communication, and work ethic exceeded our expectations at every stage. We ultimately closed on the sale and purchase of our new home on the same day, and were completely at ease through the entire process. He truly is an exceptional realtor, professional, and person.
He is also a General Contractor and understands the fine details of building construction. He has amazing integrity and places a huge focus on his clients wants and needs. He always makes himself available, and returns calls and text messages quickly if not immediately. Kent made my real estate transaction easy, and he taught me a lot about the industry and local market. I was very impressed with his negotiation skills and he was able to get me the best deal possible. Kent is also someone I consider a good friend, and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell property.
He was very thorough in his price evaluation, and we ended up getting more than I ever thought we would for the home, and had it under contract within the first weekend. His marketing approach went above and beyond our expectations, with professional photos including aerial drone shots. His support throughout the sale process was superb, and his experience and knowledge of the industry shined at the closing table, providing solutions to last minute problems.
I love that we forge wonderful lifelong relationships!
His knowledge of Lakewood Estates and the surrounding area assured us of a great experience. We would recommend Kent to any prospective sellers as well as buyers. "Kent Gets It Sold" is the easiest and best description!
Through other community activities I had the impression that he is a reliable and pleasant person to work with, which is true, but his knowledge of the market forces and expertise in presentation of the home brought far more response than I expected. He had my home under contract within 36 hours of the time he activated the listing! Throughout the process, Kent listened to my thoughts and preferences. He supported my goals for reaching the price point we wanted and was always thoughtful in his responses to my questions. Kent is the single best real estate professional I have worked with in purchases/sale of multiple homes over my lifetime. Highly recommend!
He had to hang tough through multiple negotiations. It is never easy selling a home but after 3 different contracts falling through for various reason, 4 was the magic number! It is also my favorite number! Frustrations ran a bit high for all of us, but we persisted, and Kent came through like a champ. My advice - Experience matters and Kent is definitely the guy who can navigate his customers to the finish line! Thank you Kent for all of your persistence, patience, and hard work!
! He sold our home on day one and got us above asking price. Can’t ask for more than that! He is an expert at marketing and utilizes social media for maximum visibility. The videos he put out for virtual walkthrough were highly professional and fun. At the other end of the spectrum he represented us in finding our new home and negotiated a great deal at a great price. I couldn’t recommend him more highly. Kent is the ultimate professional.
The entire process was extremely easy and hands off for us, which was incredibly important as we had just had a baby and had moved out of state. Kent was our eyes and ears on the ground, gave us great recommendations on where to spend a little money before listing. We were in contract within a week of listing and closed 30 days later. We were so grateful to work with Kent again and so happy with the entire experience. Can’t recommended Kent enough!
The time from our initial meeting to the actual listing was less than a month. Due to his thorough preparation and amazing marketing, we were under contract in 6 days! Kent did a GREAT JOB! I am now loving my home in Boiling Springs, SC.
Kent made me feel like a priority and listened until he really got what we were after. His knowledge of the area helped us expand our search and find exactly what we were looking for. He was very persistent in navigating the management company and tenants (that were occupying the property) to get us answers to our questions. He also helped us get back in to see the property again prior to ownership, which allowed us to have our contractors there ready to work on closing day. Kent was super friendly, communicative and professional throughout the entire process, and I’d highly recommend him to anybody!!
He is THE BEST Realtor we have ever used! He works tirelessly for his clients. We highly recommend him!
He took his time with me, walked me through every step of the process, and even assisted me in securing great financing and insurance as well. It was such a pleasure to work with Kent. He really took so much of the tress out of the process and truly made me a priority as he guided me all the way through to a smooth closing. Kent is so much more than a Realtor, he becomes your friend, and by the time we closed, he felt like part of the family. He made sure I was well taken care of every time I had a question or concern. A big thank you for my perfect condo! I highly recommend Kent Rodahaver and NextHome Gulf Coast to anyone considering buying or selling a home.
On our recent home sale, Kent was able to get us more than we EVER thought possible! He is also very proficient at navigating through all the details during the selling and closing process. We were extremely happy with this transaction from start to finish and highly recommend Kent to anyone considering buying or selling!
I am grateful for such spectacular faith and trust!
He really took the time to make us feel important and valued our opinions. Kent made our home feel special and took the time necessary to make our listing stand out amongst the best. I will for sure use him again if given the opportunity.
He was instrumental in helping resolve a rental, sale of existing home and purchase of new home - all within 6 weeks! He has everyone's best interest in mind and has the expertise to handle all types of questions and works tirelessly to get all parties moving in the same direction at the same time! We are so grateful for Kent and incredibly happy in our new home!
He was very helpful through all steps of our house-hunting process. I highly recommend working with him; I can say with full confidence that you would have a very positive and beneficial experience.
He was attentive throughout the entire process and worked many issues behind the scenes without burdening me. He researched the area, produced and distributed an attractive flier on my property and negotiated well. He even offered suggestions for apartments to rent in the area I was interested in. I will absolutely contact him when I am ready to purchase property in the future.
He was patient with challenges in a crazy housing market and listened to our concerns. He even oversaw the painting and deep cleaning of the house after we left and had some extra furniture picked up for donation to a charity. Kent was great!
Living in our dream starter home thanks to him. Thanks so much!
His assistance with inspections, closing dates, back to back closings, moving times was so helpful. Great job Kent!
Choosing him as our Realtor made our home buying process so easy. His experience and knowledge not only as a Realtor, but in the construction field and as a long-time St. Petersburg resident, proved invaluable. He did such a great job helping us buy a new house, we are now using him to sell our two houses.
When my husband and I requested to see a property right when it was posted...on a Saturday, Kent made time to meet with us immediately. Thanks to his attentiveness and swift action we now can call that property ours! This was our second property and he made it so seamless and easy on us. We look forward to working with Kent again soon.
Kent was that person for me, and an absolute pleasure to work with. The whole selling process was a smooth breeze and I attribute that to Kent's expert knowledge of the local market and access to top notch marketing tools. I would definitely recommend Kent and would be happy to hire him again!
Clear communication, very prompt to respond, and exceptional customer service. Highly recommend him for prospective buyers and sellers!
For a number of years we had been unsuccessfully searching for a condo that we would be willing to move to and give up living in and enjoying our current comfortable house. Kent's reputation as an outstanding real estate professional led us to choose him to help us in our search. He began with a house appraisal. He then skillfully sought to understand what we were looking for in a condo. This allowed him to set his property search engine to target our desires. As new condo listings of potential interest showed up, Kent immediately let us know. For those we wanted to see, Kent quickly arranged for showings. Each showing allowed Kent to close in even more clearly on what was and what wasn't acceptable to us. After patiently searching in this manner for about ten months, a condo listing of strong interest to us came on the market. We saw the condo right away and liked it. Immediately, Kent cleverly strategized our offer to the sellers, which was accepted at under asking price. After the home inspection, Kent was able to have the sellers make two significant repairs. Closing on the condo went smoothly on the original contract date. As we move into selling our house, Kent is being flexible, responsive, and most helpful to our needs. We have every confidence that his efforts will allow us to obtain maximum value for our house. You will be well-served to have Kent Rodahaver help you with your "Next Home."
He helped us in so many ways, answered our questions, helped with scheduling, and even assisted us with some last minute issues at the closing. He listened to us, explained things, and made us feel comfortable through the entire process. The most amazing thing is that Kent wasn't even our agent. He represented the buyer for our condo. Our agent hardly returned our calls and did not even show up for the closing. We highly recommend Kent. He is a true professional and a gentleman. We only wish we met him sooner.
We were extremely pleased with his service, and so thankful we chose him! Kent quickly responded, no matter what time of day or night, to our questions or requests. He is very knowledgeable, and helped us understand each step of the process. We would definitely recommend Kent Rodahaver!
He went above and beyond every step of the way. He was always available when we had questions or concerns and I feel like he truly listened to what we wanted and helped us get us to our perfect house. I cannot recommend Kent enough!
From our first meeting he was very professional, providing solid information, supporting data and recommendations. He answered our multiple questions, gave good explanations, yet was always respectful of our views. As COVID was a factor he provided PPE and requested guest Realtors to ask their clients to use them. A beautiful video of our home and gardens was created and available on the MLS. Our buyers said that was key to their interest in the property. A very good communicator, Kent answered our calls and questions in a timely manner and kept us up to date on showings and offers. He advertised widely both in print and online. He was present for the buyer's home inspection and the closing process was effortless. We were very pleased with all his efforts and would definitely utilize his services again, either buying or selling. All in all, Kent was a TERRIFIC Realtor. Thanks Kent!
Kent always goes the extra mile. He is the best!
I was forced to sell her house in St. Petersburg. I was so fortunate to have a local notary refer me to Kent Rodahaver to act as my real estate agent. My sister's house was quite a mess and was far from presentable for showings. Kent was incredible helpful and brought a crew in to clear out the clutter and donate everything to charity. He staged the house and sent me photos and kept me apprised of his progress the entire transaction. We priced the house to sell and received 4 offers over the weekend immediately after Kent posted it for sale. I received a fair offer for the house and closed escrow in two weeks. Kent worked very hard on my behalf and I recommend him to anyone. He is a true pro!
He knows the market and has helped me make quick sales and most above asking price. I recommend Kent to anyone looking for a positive experience with their real estate transaction.
He is professional, positive, attentive, engaging and the best! Kent always answered my questions and concerns in a timely manner. I strongly encourage anyone interested in selling or buying to check with Kent and his NextHome team! Thank you for the opportunity to express my gratitude. He went above and beyond the necessary!
In a Seller's market, Buyers need brokers and agents like them that can navigate you through the maze of multiple offers and fair evaluation of homes. We highly recommend Kent!
Pete housing market! He and his team made the process of selling our home and buying a new home feel seamless. He advised us on preparing our house for listing, and we had an offer after just six days on the market. Our new home was also one of his listings, and we could not be happier.
It was the first home he showed us & it met all our criteria. The purchase went smoothly & we closed early. We are so happy in our new home! I highly recommend Kent to help you with your purchase or sale of your home. He has a great personality & is fun to work with!
Kent pays extreme attention to details and is a man of integrity. He takes his time and makes sure you have a full understanding of the process. I thank God for sending him my way.
Extremely knowledgeable, responsive, attentive, and a genuinely nice guy. He goes out of his way to be helpful. I would give him 10 stars!
Went way above and beyond what I would expect from a real estate professional. I had a smooth transaction and received more than I anticipated for my property. His marketing was beyond exceptional!
He was outstanding! Before choosing a real estate agent, I conducted a lot of research to see who would be the best choice based on the investment they make into selling a property (time and effort) and how they promote listings. Kent stood out as the best in St. Petersburg. His social media presence was strong, and I could tell he put a lot of work into his listings. We spoke with Kent and then met with him at our home that he listed and sold. He spent hours answering our questions, providing objective data regarding how many homes he sells, how long his listings typically stay on the market, and providing tons of info on comps in the area. Kent made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other Realtors don't (but should), like having a pro come and take professional photographs and video. When we saw our listing we were blown away. His hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - our listing looked amazing and knocked-out the competition. We had an offer within hours of our home being listed. Our house went under contract well above asking price. We accepted and Kent/his team was also incredibly friendly and helpful. In addition he walked us through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience!
He helped us price our home, sold it in 10 days and closely followed the process all the way to a timely closing. I am not sure what more you could want from your Realtor. He is professional, knowledgeable and makes what could be a stressful process fun! We also interviewed another highly respected Realtor team that we had worked with on another property; they wanted to price our home, in their estimate, $30,000 to $50,000 less than we sold it for with Kent...he really knows the neighborhoods he works in, takes his research seriously and does the BEST job for his clients!
From the initial meeting, he was honest, direct, professional, yet friendly, which made it easy to have serious conversations and develop a trusting relationship. He took all of pressure off and immediately let us feel at ease, talking us through every step. I also worked with Kent on a new home at the same time. He negotiated and navigated flawlessly through both deals. I would work with Kent anytime.
Our market offers great options! I get to work with some of the most amazing customers wanting to make a change.
He and his team assisted me by staging my property for the very best presentation. His years of experience and market knowledge was invaluable to me and my family. Kent arranged for a professional photographer and videographer to come in and showcase my house and all of its glory! I believe that his video is what sold the house to an out-of-state buyer from California. The open house was very successful resulting in multiple offers from qualified buyers. We were able to execute a contract considerably above list price, and Kent was able to facilitate having everything signed electronically. He introduced me to a professional title company that made the closing process seamless. There are thousands of agents who are licensed to sell a house, but the knowledge, professionalism, and proven track record that Kent and his team bring to the table is second to none!
He is a kind person. I would highly recommend him (and do often).
A job well done on a transaction that had multiple challenges. Great job Kent!
He was always available and was willing to do whatever it took to make everyone happy during the sale. He did an excellent job shooting stunning pictures that highlighted the features of the home we were selling. He suggested several helpful tips that made the home more appealing to potential buyers. We highly recommend you utilize Kent's real estate expertise!
He is sharp, proactive and the consummate professional you are looking for. Kent is an expert in the real estate market, and he will make the sale or purchase of your home a win-win. Kent and his team exceeded our expectations, and we recommend him highly as the agent you want across the board. You won’t find anyone as kind and trustworthy as Kent!!
Kent was always available to answer questions. Hope to stay where I am now, but if we move I will call him again.
After living there for over 45 years my mother went through a great deal of emotion. Additionally, I do not live locally, limiting my ability to help. There were many examples of how Kent went above and beyond. Even after the sale Kent continued to assist. My grandmothers piano had a great deal of sentimental value to me. This was a cash sale so there wasn't a lot of time to arrange to pick the piano up. Kent arranged for me to keep the piano there for a couple of extra days and himself met the movers when they arrived. It turned out that he even helped with the piano move. Now, I'm not saying he'll move piano's for you, but, he did what it took to sell the condo, was respectful of my mother and cared about what was important to me. Thank you Kent!
Petersburg. He was very professional and always answered any questions I had in a timely manner. I am very grateful for how Kent handled the sale by making this process effortless for me. Thank you again!
Not only did he find me EXACTLY what I was looking for, he sold my other home within a couple of days. His negotiation tactics were smart and fair, while his communication has been flawless. He has handled my sensitive situation (divorce) with professionalism, care and class. I cannot recommend him enough.
I am a first time home seller and couldn't have asked for an easier transaction, in fact it went so smooth that Kent will have the listing of a second home of ours. Kent is the BEST Realtor you can ask for, no hesitation, hire him!
In advance, he told me everything he would do, and he actually did it!! I definitely recommend him to others!
This was a tough time to be a buyer, but he showed me many homes that looked like they might meet my requirements. With patience and persistence, we finally found my new home! Thank you Kent!
Kent is like no other realtor I've met or worked with. He pro-actively addresses issues and works exceptionally well with other realtors to move things along smoothly. Everything he does in the process is high quality. The pictures - professionally taken and edited, the staging was perfect, the listing was perfect, everything was perfect. I cannot recommend Kent enough.
He was fair and ethical. I had previously been working with another Realtor that just wasn't working out. I got in contact with Kent, got in to view the home, placed an offer, and got the house!! He worked closely with both buyer and seller and did so honestly, ethically, and balanced. We closed on time and all parties were pleased. I highly recommend Kent! Thanks!
I love helping young families find a new and amazing home!
! Not only was he beyond exceptional in marketing and selling my condo, he assisted with staging as well. He went way above and beyond his duty as my Realtor. While I was sheltering in place in my new retirement community, Kent made time to meet an electrician at my condo for some minor repairs . He also took pictures of my furniture and sent to a consignment company. Then the day after closing he assisted movers that had driven from PA to get furniture to be shipped to my daughter. Buying or selling? I highly recommend that you contact Kent!
He often went well above and beyond what a "standard" Realtor would do (from my experience) - from the professional videography, to a standalone website for my home, to supplying a few pieces of staging furniture at no extra cost, to very personal offers of assistance while I was living away while the house was listed, such as collecting my mail and forwarding it, taking care of a few maintenance issue, and even offering to mow my grass, when my lawn company went AWOL! I definitely recommend Kent for any of your real estate needs. I would use him again for any future selling or buying needs.
I interviewed two other Realtors before making my selection, and honestly, from the minute we sat down to talk, Kent gave me his undivided attention, focused immediately on the factors that were of major importance to me and what I wanted to accomplish. He came prepared with a very impressive view of the particular market in my neighborhood and the immediate area. I trusted Kent completely. His ethics are impeccable, and he is a man of his word - a true professional. The amazing part of my experience with Kent is that he was always available to answer any questions or discuss any concerns I might have. My home was sold for the exact price I wanted and everything was accomplished seamlessly by signing with Kent! Not only that - he is a very nice man!
We recently closed on a condo unit in mid June and we are extremely pleased with the outcome of this transaction. We began working with Kent last fall and he showed us dozens of places, all over St Pete. His knowledge of the market and research helped out narrow our choices to a few of the high rise condos in the downtown area. When we finally selected a property, we did it remotely because of our trust in Kent. The first time we entered the condo was the day before closing! It was as expected. He is the most thorough, knowledgeable and professional broker we have ever worked with. I would strongly recommend Kent for any of your real estate needs in the St Pete area.
Kent came highly recommended and was so helpful in taking care of everything from removing all the unwanted furniture to having the roof leak repaired and having the house professionally cleaned before listing the house. When I read the listing description he drafted and saw the video he created for the house, it made me want to live there! Kent is a true professional and got us multiple offers within a week of our listing. We ended up with an offer above our list price and closed the sale in a month with no issues. Kent was so easy to work with!
He also demonstrated a totally positive attitude and respect towards the buyer and their agent as well. This goes a long way in this business. Kent assisted us with his professional advice for showing and listing our home a month before we signed with him. It was listed on Sunday night and we verbally accepted the best out of 3 offers above our listed price on Thursday, and signed the contract next day. Kent then continued with great follow up service until the day of our closing. Thank you Kent for making this a positive experience for all!
He was extremely professional, very knowledgeable & a real pleasure to work with. Selling this home was painfully emotional for me as I recently lost my husband of 46 years and this was his favorite piece of property that we owned, Kent was very sensitive, kind and compassionate. He handled everything, making the entire process seamless and stress free, worry free for me. He always kept in touch letting me know what was going on and he was super easy to get a hold of if I had questions. I will always recommend him to my family, friends and customers. If you want 100% satisfaction, call Kent, you will not be disappointed!
He has always exceeded my expectations, and I have learned a lot from him over the past several years. He is extremely motivated, calls me back right away, super knowledgeable in my local market, and fun to work with. Kent has definitely earned my trust and respect, and I will certainly reach out to him again when the need arises. Mike F.
Mr. Rodahaver guided us through the entire process. We credit him with a smooth, stress-free selling experience. He always returned all phone calls and emails and we never felt neglected or unimportant. All suggestions and advise for minor changes we needed to make worked extremely well to attract buyers. We were extremely pleased with Kent Rodahaver and his expertise. We will recommend him to everyone!! Regards, Richard and Margaret Kondash
He was able to get us a house in a very competitive market for asking price. We are out of state buyers and he has continued to help us even after the sale. We highly recommend Kent!
To be able to assist them in attaining their goals and realizing their dreams is truly my daily motivation.
You will not be disappointed using him and his services. I am blessed to now call him my friend!
From the day we met him until the closing, he exceeded all our expectations. We highly recommend Kent.
In one instance, he helped us through not only making an offer on a house, but also helping us decide to walk away from an escalating bidding war. Later, we went under contract on another house which failed inspection and he helped provide us with objective considerations to assist us in deciding to walk away. Finally, he helped us navigate the unique renovation loan process in order to buy a fixer upper and make it our own. He went above and beyond for us and was always a consummate professional. Highly recommended!
He is so kind, extremely professional and attentive. He came to the very first appointment fully prepared, with lots of information and a proposed a strategy and recommended a plan to put in place. He clearly knows the market. We sold the condo immediately and at a great price. The title company he works with was exceptional too. I would highly recommend Kent and would absolutely use his services again!
He presented our property beautifully, with great pictures and descriptions. Kent advised us, showed us comps and came up with a fair competitive price. We sold for our asking price! I highly recommend Kent!
As such, I have had exposure to some incredibly talented people. Kent Rodahaver has blown us OUT of of the water!!!!!!!!x100. Kent’s personality and knowledge of marketing for this insane time in which we live was the BEST OF THE BEST! Kent and his staff are absolutely AMAZING! Ron and I have been blessed to count Kent as our friend and neighbor for life!
Kent is absolutely top-notch in his profession. The experience was simple and it's very obvious that Kent loves his work. His attention to detail, quick responses and excitement is refreshing. My wife and I highly recommend Kent and hope to work more with him in the future!
I spoke with several agents, but never really felt heard. Kent made me feel like a priority and listened until he really got what we were after. His knowledge of the area helped us expand our search and find exactly what we were looking for. He was very persistent in navigating the management company and tenants (that were occupying the property) to get us answers to our questions. He also helped us get back into see the property again prior to ownership, which allowed us to have our contractors there ready to work on closing day. Kent was super friendly, communicative, and professional throughout the entire process, and I’d highly recommend him to anybody!!
If you want a professional real estate agent this is your guy. He is very knowledgeable about real estate and gets things moving right along. I can't say enough about Kent. He stays on top of things throughout the entire transaction. Thank you so much for you help!
He helped us buy a new home sell our existing home, and he made the whole process seamless from start to finish! He was always happy to answer our questions any time of day, and we could rely on him to give expert, timely advice. From his open house to his team of agents to his marketing materials, everything was TOP NOTCH! Highly recommend working with Kent!
From the first time we met with him, to the early stages of thinking about selling our house, to listing and actually closing the sale, we were impressed with Kent's professional and courteous nature. He answered all our questions and gave us great ideas to make our home sale go better. He was able to get us more than we ever expected! We would definitely use Kent again and definitely recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling!
He answered all my questions quickly and was extremely easy to deal with. I highly recommend him!
With this thought in mind, the decision to choose representation is a decision that is not to be taken lightly. While some may not know, Kent in addition to being a Real Estate Broker, is a certified Building Contractor and has knowledge above and beyond what is necessary when representing commercial and residential clients. He took the time to point out items of concern before listing to ensure the best possible return and satisfaction of our buyer. He uses a fresh and collaborative approach to his robust marketing plan. He has a keen understanding of the art of negotiation and works diligently to ensure every deal is constructed to benefit all involved. When your investment is on the line you owe it to yourself to make Kent your advocate.
He went over and above what we expected in a realtor. He helped us price our house well, took amazing photos, and even came and personally did some minor work we had to have done, showing he was highly committed to helping us with the sale of our home. Our house went under contract within a few hours the first day it was listed!! He is extremely knowledgeable and very easy to work with, we could get a hold of him any time of day and if we left a message, he responded promptly. We will definitely use Kent again if we sell or buy another home and we will always recommend him to anyone we know. Kent gets it sold!!
His attention to details and his expertise in the real estate market is outstanding! His staff is top notch.!! Thank you for selling my home.
Every time it has been so smooth, I barely feel the stress of selling a home. We sold our house from out of town, and I absolutely thought I was going to have to fly down for one thing or another. Kent was able to guide us through getting whatever work needed to be done. We made way more than I expected on the sale, and I honestly felt lazy at the end because it was so little work on my end! Thanks Kent, for all the great advice and unbelievable hard work. If you want a Realtor that has all the knowledge you could ask for, an easy-going personality, and an obvious will to work hard for you. That is Kent!
He truly knows the area and how to market a home. I would not hesitate to use him again, and highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell, especially in The Pink Streets. Thanks again Kent for a job well done.
