Heidi Winkler recommends Lori O'Laughlin

Living in Hawaii and trying to sell a house in Florida was an intimidating thought. I reached out to Lori and she assured us it could be done without much hassle. She was right! After almost 12 years of renters in the house, it needed some TLC, a lot actually, that we didn't want to take the time to do. Lori was confident it would sell. Right again! With very little investment in repairs and a strategic listing price, we got 5 offers in the first three days--all over asking. Throughout the process, Lori was open and honest with us. She did all the local leg work and even worked brilliantly with the current tenants. I would highly recommend Lori for any or all of your real estate needs. She's amazing to work with!

Jeff and Janet Kelly recommend Annie Cameron

We have only high praise for Annie Cameron. We have used Annie as our realtor on 2 occasions and will again. She is very professional, knowledgeable and keeps us well informed on properties. We have recommended her to others. Annie goes over and beyond to help with all buying/selling needs to include: appraisals, surveys and reading HUD statements. We highly recommend Annie Cameron as anyone's realtor.

Brett P recommends Eric Topel


Eric was true professional from start to finish. He communicated extremely well and made the sale seamless! Nice to have a realtor who just isn't about getting the listing. Have used area realtors in the past and wasn't impressed by them at all. Will use him on all our future property sales! Great job Eric!

Todd Kriss recommends Dana Topel

Dana is an exceptional realtor, she is extremely knowledgeable of the Niceville area and she made my stressful out of state home buying process very easy. Dana kept me well informed during this whole buying process from providing all of the new listings in my desired location, negotiating with the seller and working out all of the details leading up to and through closing.

Michael Welsh recommends Dana Topel

Director of Outlets

Dana was an amazing help through our process of purchasing of our new Florida condo. We bought the property site unseen so we really had to trust and rely on Dana for everything and she was on top of it! Very professional and organized and went above and beyond her role to make sure things went smoothly. I highly recommend Dana for all of your Real Estate needs.

Erica Bloor recommends Tracy Wood


Tracy is one of the best real estate agents I have worked with. She makes you feel like family from the first meeting and is so genuine and kind. Her knowledge of the market and attention to detail blew me away, and she is incredibly organized. Even after closing on the house she helped me buy, she responded quickly to questions I had. Tracy is amazing and I will recommend her to everyone I know!

Amanda Welsh recommends Dana Topel


Dana helped us find a great vacation home even though we were 1,000 miles away in Kansas. She was always available to answer our questions, evaluate potential opportunities and navigate the home buying experience in FL. Home buying is always a stressful process but Dana helped us stay connected and sale right through to closing day.

I highly recommend Tracy Wood if you are looking to purchase a home. She is very professional and really goes above and beyond for you. Tracy really made purchasing a home a walk in the park from the beginning to the end.

Ryan Corrigan recommends Lori O'Laughlin

USAF Officer

When our rental home became vacant on very short notice, we decided to sell it, rather than looking for new tenants. Despite the challenges of living 11 time zones away, COVID complicating routine interactions and a deployment to CENTCOM, Lori tackled this sale with gusto and delivered unimaginably good results! From inspection to listing, and contract to closing, Lori made the process simple and kept us informed all along the way. She understands the unique challenges of buying and selling homes while coping with military PCS timeline constraints, and her desire to serve her clients well is showcased in her results. We were listed promptly, under contract within hours, closed within a month and made more than we thought realistic. Lori made this sale easy, efficient and profitable and we couldn’t have done it without her!

Cloie Walker recommends Lori O'Laughlin

Air Force Retired

Lori has been on my side since before I even moved to the Niceville area. I was able to view and discuss potential homes all the way from Italy. She helped us get into a place fast easing the transition for both me and my daughter. That was Sept 2017 and since then had answered questions about the market and rental/purchase opportunities from condos to stand-alone houses. Once again, she has not failed me. I had a tight timeline between retiring, selling my home, moving my daughter back to campus, and moving myself into an RV. I absolutely could not have done it without her so quickly and smoothly. Her focus and dedication to taking care of her clients is evident in every request and communication. If ever I move back to the area, I’ll be calling Lori for sure.

Brian Davis recommends Lori O'Laughlin

Eagle Driver

We bought a house without even seeing inside it until the day prior to closing. We weren’t even in the same country until just before closing. Lori took care of literally everything and we have a gem of a home.

She is extremely personable and very easy going. She doesn’t get wrapped around the axel about silly questions and she’s got patience for days with new home buyers like us. She’s from a military family and understands what it’s like to be moving around the world every so often.

Lori is fantastic when it comes to finding the home that we wanted. She did virtual walk throughs and uploaded them to a private YouTube channel so we could see everything. She didn’t just breeze through either, but found all the nooks and crannys that might need attention or change the impression of the house. Always concerned about how old appliances were, how the roof looked and what the rest of the neighborhood was like. Attention to detail, anticipation of needs, wants, concerns are her strong points.

She helped us get set up with all the other entities it takes to buy a house from mortgage agents to home inspectors to title insurance to which utilities & phone numbers to get them set up. When the house needed some work in conjunction with the contract sale, she took care of ensuring the work was done and sent picture and invoices over to us as verification.

Lori is the best! Call her and she’ll take care of you and your new home!

Tania Robles recommends Jolene Anderson

Jolene Anderson

I have nothing but great things to say about Jolene Anderson. I am currently deployed and been doing the home buying process, long distance. From day one, Jolene has been there every step of the way, explaining the process and answering all the questions I had. She was welling to look at any house I was interested in and gave her honest opinion and feedback about the home. She helped me get connected with the other agencies and insurance companies I needed to close on my first home. Without a doubt, I would have her be my realtor if I ever wanted to buy another property and I would 100% recommend her to any of my family and friends. Thanks, Jolene, for all your help and making this process less stressful while I was deployed and for going above and beyond.

Luke Hubers recommends Dana Topel

My wife and I worked with Dana on a recent home purchase in Niceville. Our experience with her was two fold. First, the overall experience of working with her was very positive - she was respectful of our time, quick to answer questions, and genuinely cared about us and our future home purpose. Second, we felt she was fair, direct and was honest about realistic expectations during the home buying process. If we had to do it all over again, we wouldn't change having the opportunity to work with Dana.

Sandra Sims recommends Tracy Wood

Director of External Relations

Tracy is very dedicated to her clients. She responded quickly and always made sure we understood our options. Her knowledge of the area and her relationships with lenders, inspectors, etc enabled us to close earlier than anticipated. She makes you feel like your purchase is the most important real estate transaction she’s working on, and I recommend her highly!

Angela Hassell recommends Tracy Wood


Tracy has assisted us with the purchase of two homes. She is fantastic to work with, very responsive and our eyes and ears on site (since we live out of state). When issues arose, Tracy rapidly responded and put us in touch with individuals that helped get the deal done. I recommend Tracy 100%.

Kevin and Caroline Coffey recommend Athena Pearl Riley

We are a local military family and we highly recommend Athena Pearl Riley to anyone relocating to the area, or simply looking to upgrade or invest. We recently purchased a home with the help of Athena and could not be happier about our experience. Best of all, she helped us get a great deal on the home! This was by far the best experience we have had purchasing a home. Athena will go out and fight for you and your money - no matter what it takes. She took our offer and went to bat - I still don't know how she made it happen. She came up with ingenious solutions to help us save every penny possible. She fought for us no matter how many calls or emails she had to make with the other agent. Athena makes you feel secure and protected. She was responsive, reliable, and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. We never felt pushed or pressured by Athena. On the contrary, we felt fully informed and involved. She helps guide you so that you know what to expect at every step. I can't stress enough how much we appreciate Athena, she is truly a seasoned professional in her field.

Keaton McDonald recommends Tracy Wood

Tracy was great to work with. She was always quick to respond to any questions we had and was gracious and patient with every communication. She stayed in close contact with us (buyer) and with the seller - keeping us all in the loop at every step of the process. We are very pleased with our experience with Tracy and we feel confident that you will be pleased when you use her as well!
