Lela is the ultimate real estate agent in the Florida Keys! Perfect in every way...Hard working, compassionate, great communicator and listener. From our first conversation I knew that something great would happen. We were not from the area so we put our wants and needs in Lela's hands. She sent us many properties to look at and over time decided on our dream home. Lela has shared her extensive expertise and advice to make our property purchase a wonderful and memorable experience!
If you are considering buying or selling your home in the Florida Keys...please call Lela, She can make it happen!

I highly recommend Lela as as real estate agent. I can’t think of a better or more qualified real estate agent to work with on your home purchase. I cannot say enough about Lela’s professionalism, true caring nature and extensive knowledge of the Florida Keys. We bought our property from Lela because she took the time to work with us and understand our needs. She did not stop until she knew we were statisfied . Lela does not forget about you once the deal is done. We have called her and met with her for recomandations of builders, architects and landscapers . She has always come through with excellent and well thoght out recommendations.Till this day she makes me feel that helping me is her highest priority. My husband Tom and I consider Lela a dear friend . She is bar none the best in the industry

Lela is fantastic! If you are looking for a serious realtor, one that is a go getter, ready to do the best job that a realtor can. Than you need look no further!

Lela has a work ethic like no other, with the absolute intentions of being the best realtor there is! Which is exactly what you are looking for. You want to have someone that has been in the business for many years, and that isn't trying to learn the ropes on your dime and using your time!

She has been working in the keys for decades and knows the market like no one else in town. A true local working non-stop to make your real estate transaction one of the best experiences you have ever had.

We could not have been happier with Lela's service, it was amazing and we were able to effortlessly purchase the exact home we wanted as well as get the best advice we could find in getting our other home sold.

We thank here so much and we hope that this recommendation will be used to help you make your real estate experience the best it can be by choosing Lela to be your agent!

It is easy to make a big mistake in the Florida Keys when it comes to real estate but Lila takes you by the hand and make sure that you don't make those mistakes. Those mistakes can cost you thousands of dollars in buying real estate. Lila will help you in getting the property that you want and keep you're best interests in mind while doing it. One thing l can tell you for certain from my experience with her is she will always be my real estate agent for the Florida Keys.

To say that Lela Ashkarian is a treasure is a gross understatement. From the first day we met, Lela has given "you are my only customer" attention to our needs and concerns. She goes above and beyond what is required, and she makes a personal bond that is surprising today. She and Natalie Ardis work beautifully together. We couldn't be more pleased. Not only have we met a most competent realtor, but also have we developed a trusting personal relationship!

Buyers Cooperating Agent To Lela Ashkarian Hello Brian, I recently had the opportunity to have a closing with Lela Ashkarian in which I represented the Buyer I have never had an agent pursue me like that after a deal was dead. I have learned from this deal and I have to recommend Lela for her continual correspondence with me, she was an integral part of making this deal come together. She was also very accommodating in helping to close the deal. I just wanted to let you know. I think she is a super agent and it was my pleasure to work with her.

Lela, Words cannot express the depth of gratitude that you have given us in taking on the impossible task of listing our condo and selling it in record time. The circumstances at Casa Clara Condominium, as you are well aware, are utterly impossible. You were able to professionally and coolly communicate with them to get the information you needed. They will give no one, owners, tenants, especially Realtor 5 minutes of their time, yet you sacrificed hours with Margie in order to get the correct information and to review it until you understood all of the details regarding the multitude of assessments. Your patience and professionalism exceeded anything we could expect from a Realtor. Professionally, there is nothing you left undone. You listed our condo,we changed our mind on the short sale route, you relisted/updated to reflect a price that it would sell and to our surprise it actually sold and had several offers within 3 days!!All of this, after communicating with us over the past year, as we trudged through this nightmare Casa Clara has become and tried to digest our gruesome circumstance. That is commendable to say the least ! In past experiences with Realtors in Florida and New Jersey, we expect to do a lot of the leg work. If not, closings get canceled or pushed back among other negative circumstances because the Realtor didn't do all of their job. You were on top of this transaction every step of the way, impeccable! You are aggressive in every thing you do and it shows, by you leading us down a very dark path into the light. We didn't always want to hear the cold, hard truth, but your patience, experience and knowledge shone through as you held our hand through this awful experience. Your listening skills and true empathy to our horrific financial situation over the last year amaze us to this day. In having an open mind, you tried to find solutions that: would put our interests and well being before your own. Commission and sales came second and we came first, just writing that brings us utter joy and disbelief. Honesty, integrity and genuine human kindness are only a few adjectives to describe our experience with you. We will recommend your services to everyone we know.
