Gayle Hurst, Vice President - Old South Land Title
While often an overused phrase - "A breath of fresh air" is what comes to mind when I think of my experiences with Kelly!   In a world of everyone taking on more than they can usually handle, Kelly handles time and task management (with the most effective and efficient follow-up) better than most can.  The list of adjectives may seem over the top, but are truly applied to my multiple experiences working with her.   She is dependable, flexible, patient, diplomatic, open-minded, confident, and while I could go on, I will finish with fun and affordable.   She worked with me and listened as we formulated a plan to completely update two of my office locations.   These projects can be intimidating, but not with Kelly.   She took my lead on the WHAT and took over  the HOW.    I could not be more pleased with the outcome and she comes with my highest recommendation.

Kelly's manner shows she is dedicated to the success of Ruckel Properties. We have found her to have the utmost integrity. She is creative, resourceful and forward thinking."

Kelly Cofer - The Retail Coach
"From the start, I was most impressed with her knowledge of the retail economic development process and her relentless desire to learn - to excel."

Sean Garretson - Tip strategies
"Kelly is professional, prompt, courteous, and focused.  I had the pleasure to work with her when her development company was a client of mine.  I provided market analysis and recommendations for the company’s properties. Kelly was my primary point of contact and internal staff lead for this project.  She not only enhanced our ability to do our work by providing insight, but she pushed us to a develop an even better product!"

Virginia Sharpe - North Okaloosa Medical Center
"To begin, let me say that Kelly is a delight in every way. She is thoroughly professional in her dealings with clients, always willing anxious to work creatively for a solution to their needs."

“Her passion for the arts was evident in all of her work and her creativity and artistry were endless.”
— Buddy Runnels- Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation

Kelly was a pleasure to work with. She guided me patiently through the entire process and always remained positive through a difficult short sale process. She was supportive and optimistic during the whole process. She was always available for any questions or concerns giving me explanation and hope all the time. She was very knowledgeable about the market and local trends. She educated me about what was going on throughout the entire process of selling my home and short comings. She was very upfront with all the things that went wrong and/or could go wrong. I appreciated her professionalism and expertise. I would recommend her to anyone that is going through the home buying or selling process.

"Kelly provided us outstanding service throughout the sale of a lot we owned in Swift Creek.  Twice we were under contract and twice the deal fell through due to the buyers, but due to her perseverance we sold our lot on the third try.  She saved the day!” 

Wes & Donna lassiter

"My wife and I were looking for a good flat lot to build our retirement dream home. We had several lots in mind but undecided which way to go. When I first met Kelly I could tell that she was a real estate professional and very knowledgeable about lots in our price range and the local area. After providing us all the initial information we needed, it only took a couple days to secure the lot to build our new home. Kelly’s warm smile and congenial demeanor made us “feel right at home” and secure in the knowledge that we had the assistance and guidance of a sincere real estate professional.  I’d recommend her to my mother!"
