Kent Rodahaver - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

We met Kent a number of years ago, and we were not quite ready to sell.

His courteous and professional manner stuck with us. Fast forward to this past month, and we called Kent, to help sell our house. He knows this market like the back of his hand. They took beautiful pictures of our house along with a very descriptive write up of the house. It sold the first day listed. Kent stuck with us throughout the inspection process until close. I would recommend him to everyone and would definitely use him again. He is a ten out of ten. Alex

Alex LeBlanc (Partner)

Kent provided amazing support from start to finish with our buying process.

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!

Amy Miles (Home Buyer)

Kent is an amazing Agent.

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.

Kate Bailey (Title Agent)

Kent has been exemplary in helping us find and purchase the perfect condo as our "Next Home" and now to sell our existing house.

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."

Our market offers great options! I get to work with some of the most amazing customers wanting to make a change.


Kent recently handled the marketing & sale of my condo in St.

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!

Rebecca Sutter

Sometimes work requires that you pick-up and move all the way across the US.

I love helping young families find a new and amazing home!


Kent has helped me with several real estate transactions.

He has a business model that compares to none. He always goes above and beyond in assisting the process for both purchasing and selling. He genuinely cares about people and respects the industry. He is my "go to guy" at all times and I highly recommend his service!

I would highly recommend Kent to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. We have dealt with 18 different realtors over our life, Kent is “the best” and most personable of them all. His lovely wife even came by to offer an unbiased eye to readiness for listing!🤩

Tanya Roberts

Kent was able to help me prepare, deep-clean, and stage my St Petersburg, FL home.

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.

Barbara E Thomas

Kent recently guided my wife and I through our first investment property purchase.

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!

Tyler Baker (Dentist)

I am fortunate to frequently work with multi-generations within a single family.

I love that we forge wonderful lifelong relationships!


Over the past 38 years my husband and I have engaged the services of at least 10 real estate brokers who were rated number #1 in their demographic.

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!

William Borders ( Retired)

Kent is a FANTASTIC realtor!

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!

Jimmy Drennan

Kent was super easy to work with and very knowledgeable.

I would recommend working with him to anyone!

Alison Maxwell

Kent was very professional and helped us make a quick, smooth sale.

He answered all my questions quickly and was extremely easy to deal with. I highly recommend him!

Sabrina Weaver (Home Seller)

Kent's professionalism shined in his dedication in serving me as a seller.

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!

Michael Colangelo (Independent Contractor)

Kent did a great job!

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.

Jim Duggan

When you need help with one of the largest financial transactions of your life, you want someone you can fully trust.

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!

Kim Simmons (Home Seller)

This is my second time officially working with Kent, and again he was fantastic to work with.

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!

Corey Fix (Home Seller)

Kent patiently walked us through our home-buying experience with exceptional knowledge and professionalism while providing us with objective facts to help in our decision-making.

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!

Joe M (Home Buyer)

I have worked with about 10 realtors over the course of my real estate buying and selling career, and Kent has been by far the savviest.

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!

Jeremy Massey

Kent was extremely professional throughout the selling process.

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.

Mark Weimer

Once again Kent has exceeded all expectations of a Realtor and a professional.

He is a kind person. I would highly recommend him (and do often).

Dietta Burgoyne

We bought a house 4 years ago with Kent and had such a great experience we knew we wanted him to list our home when we sold it.

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!

Jennie Fix

Kent was personable, reliable, and professional.

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!

Charlotte Hicks

Kent was such a pleasure to work with from day-one!

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.

Jennifer McVey (Home Buyer)

During a difficult time, the death of Mother, Kent's compassion and attention to all details made the process of selling her home one less thing we had to worry about.

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!

Anne Conklin

Kent did a great job selling our house in Lakewood Estates when we were moving out of state.

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!

Melissa Metcalfe (Home Seller)

We have chosen Kent to represent us for two properties now.

He is THE BEST Realtor we have ever used! He works tirelessly for his clients. We highly recommend him!

Chuck D.

I am writing this recommendation because Kent made selling our house simple and painless.

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!

Mike Boyd (Home Seller)

Kent did a great job of getting my condo on the market and sold in a very short time.

In advance, he told me everything he would do, and he actually did it!! I definitely recommend him to others!

Kit R. (Home Seller)

Kent was amazing.

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!

Josh j

Kent is amazing!

! 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.

Cal Underwood

Kent kept the deal going - got it signed and closed with no issues.

A job well done on a transaction that had multiple challenges. Great job Kent!

David S. (Home Buyer)

We could not have been more happy with 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.

Todd Van Orsdel

Kent and his team were so responsive to our needs.

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!

Michael & Chris (Home Buyer)

Kent was extremely professional and very friendly.

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!

Maria Kubus (Home Seller)

GREAT experience!

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!

Steve D (Business Owner (Bluewater Customs))

Kent was fantastic.

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.

Jessica Scott

Kent Rodahaver is by far the best agent anyone could ask for to handle your home sale or purchase.

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!!

David and Randi Naar

Kent did a fantastic job selling our home!

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!

Thomas Judson (Home Seller)

Kent is an expert on the St.

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.

Lindsey Drennan

We used Kent to list our home and to also buy our new home.

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!

Judith Pyles (Seller/Buyer)

I can not say enough good things about Kent.

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.

Agatha & Joseph Kelly (Retired)

Kent did an EXCELLENT job in marketing and selling our house!

Ronald Borsellino (Home Seller)

Kent is awesome!

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!

Catherine Duffy

There are not enough "positive" words in the dictionary to describe Kent Rodahaver.

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!

Donna McRae

Kent is awesome!

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.

"Flawless. 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."

"Kent provided all the above 5 star ratings, but also with a totally positive attitude and respect towards the buyer and their agent. 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."

"We decided to list our home on the verge of the birth of our first child. 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."

"Kent was a dream to work with in helping us find our new home! 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!!"
