Lisette Thomas recommends Cecelia Besu

Sales Associate

Though I am a new Sales Associate with Keyes, and haven't known Ceil for that long, she is certainly one of the reasons why I decided to work with Keyes. Ceil is a real estate guru and the passion she demonstrates in her role is contagious! She inspired me as the intelligent, dynamic, and vivacious lady that she is to trust my own instincts with starting a new chapter in my life in the real estate world. Ceil is a true asset to Keyes. I look forward to a long and flourishing working relationship with her for years to come!

Victor E Taurizano recommends Steven Reibel

Former Broker/Owner Novus Realty

I started a discussion with Steve Reibel about the possibility of my company, Novus Realty, joining forces with Keyes about ten years ago. At that time, I was not ready as my company was growing, and I was enthusiastically enjoying the challenges of managing my own brokerage. I remember at that time Steve told me: “you never know what the future has in store, let’s keep in touch”. And we have been in touch since then.

I’ve received offers from other firms, including big national brands. But I wanted to keep the personal relationship I have with my agents, the essence of a solid team. Once I met Mike Pappas and his daughter Christina, I immediately made a connection. It is like I’ve known them forever.

It has taken me time, but I finally decided to join Keyes because it is an independent and family-oriented company. I thought it was going to be more difficult, but with more than 100 mergers and acquisitions under his belt, Steven has guided me through the whole process in a smooth and efficient way.

When we had our first sales meeting after the merger, I was very happy as I looked at the faces of my 25 agents and saw how they were enjoying all the new tools and services. I am more convinced now that Keyes was the right decision.

During the presentation to the agents, I mentioned one African proverb that has always resonated with me: if you want to be fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, go together.

I know that together with Keyes, my agents and myself, we will go far. We will reach the next level in our professional career in this amazing industry called Real Estate.

Former Broker-Owner Mizner Grande Realty

Dear Steven,

I am proud to be a part of the Keyes Company family. Everything you promised from day one back at the end of October until we completed the merger you delivered over and beyond.

After meeting with many, many firms over the last few years and peeling back the onion on every firm I unconditionally concluded that the Keyes Company, their culture, their family atmosphere, their cutting-edge technology, their support, their resources were way above all the other firms that I met with. Your sincerity was definitely an inspiration for me and my family as we were looking for a long-term partnership.

My 60+ agents who produced over $150 million last year are super excited about all the above great things the Keyes Company has to offer.

My experience dealing with you, the Pappas family, Joanie, and all other Keyes associates and employees have been great. I feel that other Brokers in my situation would greatly benefit from joining the Keyes Company in this changing Real Estate market.

I would talk with anyone regarding my experience with everyone at the Keyes Company at any time.

Best Regards,

Ari Albinder

Andraya Coyle recommends Phil Talbert


When first deciding on what brokerage I wanted to work with as a newly licensed agent, I knew I would get a feeling from the managing broker that would make me feel like this is where I am supposed to be. Phil did that for me! He met with me and instantly made me feel like I would be supported. Phil is very knowledgeable and has given great insight into the business. I am so glad I have been given the chance to work with someone as great as Phil!

Before joining The Keyes Company I was interviewed by other organizations in the business.
I was interviewed by Phil Talbert at The Keyes Company, I was so impressed with Phil and the organization, I decided to join the company.

Lisa Meagher recommends Phil Talbert


Phil is nothing short of AMAZING. The reason I chose to hang my license with The Keyes Company is because of him. Just our initial conversation was easy, and he made me feel as though I was just going to be lost in a sea of other agents. He has been instrumental in helping me build my business and is always there to help me when I need him. He has instilled a level of confidence in me, and I am so grateful for him. Keyes is BLESSED to have Phil. Thanks for being you, believing in me and helping me along the way!!!!

“I chose to work with the Keyes Wellington Office because I felt a special connection when I met Jennifer Schillace, for the very first time. A short while ago I described her as a dream manager however she far surpassed my very first impression and expectations. She is STELLAR! There is not a day that goes by that she does not make you feel special! She truly wants you to succeed. Jennifer makes you feel you can accomplish anything you put your mind too. Jennifer is an amazing mentor and she brings 22 years of experience with her. She is so willing to share and teach from that experience. That also makes her very special. She always makes herself available to you. Every conversation with her is a learning experience if you take away the pearls.

There is always a smile on her face and she is always approachable. She will stop what she is doing to help you. She is always looking for ways to create a happy family work environment and she has managed to do it! She is always asking what she can do for her office and agents. She is always feeding our souls. The Wellington office is a happy family. You always feel the warmth that is in this office. The agents are very supportive of each other and that’s because of Jennifer. Jennifer is passionate, supportive and a mentor. She genuinely thrives on our success and that is what makes her STELLAR to me! “

Ryan Steets recommends Jennifer Schillace

Real Estate Agent

Jennifer is a wonderful manager, leader, and mentor. She takes great pride in creating a fun and productive working environment, and really goes the extra mile to help when she can. Whether it's taking calls on a Sunday night, helping put together a CMA for a listing presentation, or whatever else, Jennifer is not afraid to do the hard work. Personally, the encouragement I receive from her helps my day to day business much more than I'm sure she imagines.

ecaterina postolache-siminyuk recommends Jennifer Schillace

Realtor Associate

Jennifer is a great mentor. She is very knowledgeable in the real estate area and loves to teach. The greatest advice that I've learned from her so far is that every realtor has different approaches to become successful and each of us needs to find that niche. I haven't been in this office for a long time, but I can confidently say that Jennifer is a great manager, always ready to help and mentor. Despites, she has a great personality and charisma.

Richard Bitman recommends Jennifer Schillace

Sales Agent

I’m a newly licensed agent and leaving a 25+ year career in luxury retail. I have actually interviewed with 8 different real estate brokers for 8 different companies. And I can not emphasize enough on how valuable training is for a new agent, as well as the connection with your manager/broker! Well after meeting the 8 the only clear choice was to sign with Jennifer Schillace with Keyes Co in the Wellington office. The connection with Jennifer was instant when I first met with her, her energy, enthusiasm and smile are infectious! I have been welcomed into the office family with open arms! I haven’t even began my Keyes training and I’ve already learned so much from Jennifer and my incredible trainer/mentor Stephanie Gagnon! If you’re new in the industry or just getting started take it from me, it’s the best office and company to join, hands down! Trust me I took my time and researching and this is the best decision ever!

Angela Ortiz recommends Jennifer Schillace


Jennifer is always readily available and willing to help or answer any of my questions. Since she started at the Keyes Wellington location, she made it very clear that she has everyone's best interest and willing to do what it takes so that we ALL do our best!

Ann Angotti recommends Jennifer Schillace


I have worked with Jennifer for 22 Years and her knowledge and professionalism is second to none. She is someone you want working for you and now as a district manager she brings new creativity into the profession. In such a few short weeks she already changed the the ways Realtors think about how to build their business. Her support for her realtors is what is needed from a manager and she get a A.
We are all so happy to have her as our manager.
