Home Buyer
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!

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!

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.

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).

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!

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!

Professional, Courteous and Knowledgeable. Kent was always available to answer questions. Hope to stay where I am now, but if we move I will call him again.

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!!

Kent Rodahaver listed and sold my house and then represented me as my agent on the house I bought. 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!

Kent was a great Realtor for us. 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!

I have used Kent multiple times on real state sales and purchases. 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.

It was my pleasure to have Kent handle the sale of my home in St Petersburg. 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!

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.

Working with Kent to sell and buy my home has been seamless. 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.

Kent helped us look for an investment property in St Pete starting last fall. 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 is amazing!! 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!

Kent sold my mothers condo. 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!

We are pleased to recommend Kent Rodahaver and NextHome South Pointe to anyone looking to sell their home. 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!!
