Jodi is an amazing realtor and a better person. She has been a great help to my wife and I as we look for a property on 30A. Being in the mortgage business I appreciate a great realtor and she has to be one of the best in the area!
- Rich Allensworth
Jodi is simply amazing! Her deep knowledge of the Emerald Coast market combined with her extraordinary patience enabled us to find the best property to achieve our goals. There were several occasions we wanted to make an offer on other properties, and she directed us away from those opportunities because she knew our needs so well (and they ultimately were not the right fit for us). She has earned our trust as our realtor of choice in the Florida panhandle.
- Nolan Comstock
Melissa was just great. She handled every detail perfectly.
- Myles Wegman

Jade Schilhab is our real estate agent, and I just can’t say enough about how absolutely amazing and professional she is! She helped us find our dream home. From the start she asked the important questions, listened to our needs and wants, and found us the perfect home. The market offered several challenges so I thought finding a home would be difficult, but Jade explained that our concerns, however valid, would not be an issue. Within a month she sent me a link to our forever home, which offered 20 acres nestled in the woods, down a winding paved drive surrounded by tall pines and magnolias, that led to a beautiful cedar home with a porch that overlooked a stunning stocked pond with a floating dock, and four little ducks. This is now our dream home.
Jade worked quickly to build a relationship with the showing agent. We put in an offer and it was accepted. We closed in a little over a month. Jade kept us informed throughout the process and was there to answer our questions. I highly recommend Jade Schilhab, if you are looking for the best of the best she’s your lady! She gave us her time, attention, and was dedicated to helping us no matter how long it was going to take.

Crystal Newborn was an exceptional agent went beyond required responsibilities to ensure the home hunting experience was successful. She understands the entire Destin-Pensacola market and will go to bat for her buyer. Purchased a home in Navarre in June 2022! Thanks Crystal.

- Ormond Curl
I just wanted to send out a big thank to Jodi, Bill and Team. My wife and I were looking to find and close a property by the end of the year. Jodi and Team went to work and we successfully completed the purchase of a condo in Destin in a short period of time. The service provided was 5 star and I would recommend them to help you and your needs. Thank you - again!
- Jason Wick
Bill and Amanda were wonderful to work with!! They were very thorough and always addressed any concerns I had about the process in selling my home. And Amanda in helping me find a new home. More than her expertise she put in so much extra time being there with me until I closed and after closing to make sure all punch list items got done. The best gift is I have a beautiful new friend. Bill and Amanda both knew I just lost my husband and had quadruple bypass surgery so they went the extra mile to make sure it all went without a hitch. I so appreciated their advice and kindness. Please thank Bill and Jodi for setting me up with such an amazing team. Big hugs to the Ketchersid Team!!
- Debbie LaSalle
Amanda Rockwell is amazing! She has been so helpful through our entire process! She has gone far above all of our expectations! I have recommended her to several friends and will continue to do so. She listened carefully to our wants and needs and did everything in her power to help us. Not just during the search for our new home, but all through the closing process and after! She is incredibly knowledgeable and absolutely the BEST at what she does!
- Sandra Slater
10 stars for the Ketchersid Team! We've done many transactions with this group. We've been working with both Jodi & Bill for 9 years now, purchasing both personal homes, and investment properties. Recently, we called them and were looking for a specific kind of property, and, in a VERY SHORT time frame. Not only did Jodi find the property, but the 2 of them were able to close on the deal in 5 days! Unbelievable! Thank you Ketchersid Team! You know us, we'll be back shortly!
- Amber J Wick
Jade was amazing to work with. Patient, knowledgeable, flexible, and willing to work with our crazy schedule to see properties while on vacation. Provided all of the resources needed to make it come together. She’s following up frequently to be more than just an agent. She’s built a new relationship and will be receiving referrals.
- Diana Halmick
Amazing team!!!
- Lisa Simpson
We were lucky enough to have Karen Marceaux as our realtor and won’t ever use anyone else! We were on the hunt for a unique home that seemed like it didn’t exist in the area but we put her up to the challenge. She educated us in what was typical to expect but that she wouldn’t stop until she found us what we were looking for. Not a month and a half later, Karen found our dream home! We made a couple of offers and even after she went above and beyond to make the closing as smooth as possible. If we had anyone else as our realtor, we wouldn’t be in the house of our dreams.
- Christina Faith
The property was perfect for my family of 5. Close to the beach and everything else we wanted to experience.
- Aridth Gibbons
Jodi is the best in town. She’s smart, she listens to your needs and pays attention to the details. You will never regret using Jodi or her team at Real Joy properties!
- Amanda Rockwell
Buying and selling real estate is incredibly complicated, regardless of how many times you’ve purchased or sold property. Having an experienced agent with working knowledge of the area, specifically an exact market and its challenges, along with any changes in regulations, is a must. Jodi Ketchersid is a wealth of information, dedicated to helping you navigate the process of such a complex time in your life. Her expertise and resources truly mitigate many of the stresses that can overwhelm any client, whether it’s the first house or your forever home. I’ve bought and sold several properties over the last decade with Jodi and am always impressed by her professionalism, willingness, and guidance. I can’t recommend her or her team highly enough.

There’s a reason that RealJoy Properties consistently wins Best In Destin awards for residential real estate.
- Heather Rutkowski
I used RealJoy Properties, not to be confused with RealJoy Vacations, to purchase a house in Destin, FL. Jodi is one of the most knowledgeable realtors in the area and keeps up with all market trends. She is professional, courteous and able to answer all the tough questions. I Wouldn’t hesitate to use RealJoy Properties again. In fact, Jodi is currently looking for a new residence for my son.

This review is for Melissa Walls, Realjoy Realty. We have never had better customer service given from start to finish. She is highly knowledgeable and keeps in constant communication, including evenings and weekends! She is able to answer any questions or concerns or will find out needed Information whenever necessary. She found us our dream vacation property and we would recommend her to our friends and family. We thank you, Melissa!

Jodi walked me through the process with ease and expertise. She and her team were very responsive to my questions. It was a pleasure working with her.

- Darrah Pierce

We cannot rave about Alyson enough! We are out of town buyers and when our heart was set on a $2 million property in 30A, Alyson went above and beyond. From day one to after the closing, she was completely attentive, informative, and timely in all of the transactions. Would highly recommend and we value her expertise.

- Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Santa Rosa Beach, FL.
A smart, hard worker. How she does all she does with three children, I will never know.<br/><br/>Jodi found me a very nice investment town house in a great location at a great price. Also, when I was looking for lots in a development that had infrastructure in place and where the developer was in need of quick sales. Jodi was able to locate the perfect property and helped negotiate a very reasonable price.
- Bought a home in 2008 in FL 32550.
Jodi is currently in the process of listing and selling my home. She has been very responsive and prompt in dealing with potential buyers and other agents. Jodi is very knowledgeable with all aspects of buying and selling homes or property. She is a pleasure to talk to and is always sincere. I would definitely recommend Jodi to anyone I know that wishes to buy or sell a home.
- Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in Mary Esther, FL.
Jodi was fantastic to work with. She was extremely professional, and took time to answer all my questions throughout a very lengthy short sale process. She responded quickly to all my calls and requests for information, and kept me updated on the progress of the sale through four different buyers! I would highly recommend Jodi, and would work with her again without hesitation.
- Sold a home in 2012.

Absolutely spectacular experience. There are a lot of real estate companies on 30A. Ketchersid Team was very professional and personable. Excellent communication. If you’re reading this look no further. I don’t believe you can have a better experience. Highly recommend.

- Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Inlet Beach, FL.
Jodi is truly dedicated to her job. She worked with us to find our dream house for almost four years. She is extremely knowledgeable and very easy to work with. Jodi made us feel comfortable during the buying process which took the stress away. We recommend her to anyone looking for a professional realtor to help them out.
- Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Destin, FL.

Jodi is very easy to work with and will provide advice when asked. She knows the
community well and was so helpful in finding us homes within Destin.

- Lady
Jodi is an extremely positive person with a very likable personality. Her knowledge of the area and expansive list of contacts makes her a cut above the rest. She is very experienced in short-sales and foreclosures and specializes at negotiating with lenders. I would highly recommend her as a Real Estate Agent.
- Found a tenant for a Condo home in Panama City Beach, FL.

We are still in the process working with Jodi. We were very impressed the first time
we came to meet her. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area as well as
Regatta Bay. She gave us so much information and we were so grateful. We are
relocating from Texas. We were very impressed that she was able to rearrange her
schedule as to accommodate our short notice arrival. She was also very interactive
while looking at homes. If we had objections about something in a home she tried to
give favorable options. We will be referring her to future friends for sure!

- Dr. DLH
Jodi came highly recommended to me from a firm in the area. After my dealings with her the recommendation wasn't high enough. We have owned and sold several properties in the area, but, Jodi is the real deal. You can trust her. Tell her your needs and let her go. You will not be disappointed in her expertise. She goes the extra mile. I consider I made a new friend in the business dealings with her.
- Sold a home in 2014 in FL 32541.
Jodi is one of the most respectable and decent human beings that I know in her market. She is always there to help and give the best guidance she can. :)
- Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Destin, FL.

We listed our condo for sale with Ketchersid Team and received a full price offer within 5 days. They were very professional and responded immediately to any questions we had. It was a pleasure working with them and I would highly recommend them.

- Sold a Condo home in 2021 in Panama City Beach, FL.

Jodi and her very qualified and professional team helped us tremendously to have a very smooth sale of our condo. During the process Jodi and her team, especially Corri, were very quick to respond to our questions and/or concerns, handled all the items needing attention from the inspection report. Closing could not have been any easier. Would highly recommend Jodi to anyone considering selling their home/condo.

- RV Cote
Besides great real estate skills, Jodi has a law degree which gives her added value to clients looking for rental, lease or other non-traditional real estate investments. She always has her cellphone with her, linking e-mail, text messages, etc. no matter whether it is a week-day or a week-end. As a long-time local resident, she knows lots about the area and is familiar with many of the real estate agents/agencies to make the negotiation process as smooth as possible.
- Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Miramar Beach, FL.

So I met Jodi in 2017 from a referral of a patient. Having just moved to Destin in 2016 I had dozens (maybe hundreds) of realtors offering their help to buy a house, very few of them were genuine and mostly pushing to buy a house when I wasn't ready or a house I wasn't interested in just for a commission. I choose Jodi because she never pressured me before I was ready, actually listened to what I wanted to buy and tailored the houses to what I needed. She basically mentored me through the house buying process because it was my first house, and being my first house I was unfamiliar with the process and nervous. She really walked me through the process step by step and also referred us to everyone we needed to use (contractors, inspectors, title companies.) It was a pretty seamless process start to finish. Also, she was able to help me negotiate the offer down over 20,000 dollars and to look at the house before it was officially listed so I had the jump on it. This allowed me to get the funds ready ahead of time and make the offer quickly to avoid competition, thus bringing down the price further. There were times in closing where I would message her well after work hours (which is rude and I shouldn't have done) and she would answer, even on vacation. To be honest, it was nice to find someone who was more worried about me than a commission check and actually went the extra mile to make sure I got what I wanted and was educated along the process. I wouldn't use anyone else in town.

- Mike Kalustian
Jodie sold my home in 1 day and took care of everything for me to ensure my sale went through on time and without ant hitches. Totally professional and has fantastic knowledge of the real estste business.
- Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Destin, FL.

Jodi, is a joy to work with, always has your best interests at heart. She is a 5 star realtor!!! She goes above and beyond and her level of care for each client doesn’t go unnoticed.

- 177 Oaktree

Excellent experience with Jodi. Would recommend her in a heartbeat. The level of help and guidance in filling out all the paper work involved in a short sale was exceptional. Her knowledge of current transactions, school districts, neighborhood information, and related services, including mortgage, insurance, inspection information, short sale and Destin real estate is extensive. Great experience!

- Sold a Single Family home in 2008 in Santa Rosa Beach, FL.

Jodi is very professional and addressed all of my questions quickly. Ours was a rather unique situation and she walked us through everything. She "held my hand" when I needed it! I would definitely recommend her!

- Showed home in 2012 in FL 32578.

We bought our house with Jodi in 2014, and sold our house with Jodi in 2019. Our house is at a price point, in a community that we knew would either sell in 30 days, or 1 year. We trust Jodi, follow her guidance, and had a great offer in 30 days! Super grateful for her experience, her knowledge of the area, and the many relationships that she has in the field.

- Ambe Wick

Jodi is by far the most knowledgeable, kindest, and professional realtor on the Emerald Coast! I have now purchased and sold multiple homes with Jodi and would never use anyone else! She is more than willing to spend time viewing homes, sending new listings, and giving her expert opinion on properties. I have referred friends and family to her and everyone is always extremely satisfied with her service!!

- Ali R Joseph
I know many realtors in Destin, having been a former President of Destin's Chamber of Commerce, and owner of two (2) different title insurance companies here in Destin. My wife and I chose Jodi to list our personal residence. Also, to lease an additional property. So this speaks to her accessibility, proficiency, and capabilities as to results !
- Bought and sold a home in 2010 in FL 32541.

Recently, Jodi K. was my buyer's agent in a local real estate purchase. I'm proud to say that I highly recommend calling Jodi for any real estate sale/purchase. She is a Destin local - knowledgeable, friendly, and hard working. I will be using her services for any real estate related deals in the future!

- Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Destin, FL.

We are very impressed with our realtor,Jodi Ketchersid. She has been very prompt in returning our calls and addressing our concerns. We had to make a last minute trip to Destin and Jodi was able to accommodate our last minute arrival. She was very knowledgeable and listened to all of our concerns. I would definitely recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home. Her attention to detail is unparalleled as well as the energy she puts into her profession.

- Heatherly

Jodi was absolutely incredible! Jodi's expertise helped us sell two of our homes in record time at top of the market prices! She is an excellent communicator, knows the market and gave us sound advice on how to stage our homes, small improvements that made a huge difference and was with us every step of the way during our transactions.

- Amber Mayer

Jodi is nothing short of Amazing!! she actually helped us with 2 homes in 2016 1 in May and 1 in Sept. Both of which sold in less the 24 hours. We followed her advice and we were successful. Couldn't say enough great things about this amazing realtor!! If you want the best call Jodi Ketchersid!!

- Joe Mayer

Jodi and Ryan were FANTASTIC! So helpful and knowledgeable during the searching process. Once we found our home, they stayed with us to the end! Could not say more about how amazing they were at helping us. Highly recommend using them! They sold our house and helped us buy a new house...all closing on the SAME DAY!!!

- K Schmidt
What a deal she put me on. Made 25% profit in less than three months. She was always available and helpful through the entire time. Helped with the sale and was the greatest.
- Bought a home in 2015 in Destin, FL.
Very professional and extremely helpful with the process of buying our home. Highly recommended. The level of service that Jodi provided with the purchase of our new home made the decision easy to retain her services when we sell the house we live in now.
- Brian M

- Sarah G.

The best!! They go above and beyond! Would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a realtor! They make real estate fun!

- Kyle H

We enjoyed working with Ketchersid Team. We dealt with Ketchersid Team only remotely. They handled everything locally for us as we were out of state during the entire process.

- Sold a home in 2021 in Miramar Beach, FL.

Jodi was always very friendly and professional.  I would recommend them.

- Jeff P.

My #1 recommendation for service if you are in the market to buy or sell property along The Emerald Coast! Jodi Ketchersid and Ryan King recently helped us sell our home (after one week of being listed!) and purchase our new home. The entire process was seamless!

- Natalie S.

Best customer service in the area! They care about their customers and they do everything they can to get you results - whether you are buying or selling.

- Ryan K.

Ketchersid Team recently helped us to purchase a condo in Miramar Beach, and since we are out of state, we were a little nervous doing the whole thing sight unseen. But they came recommended as a "friend of a friend," and the whole thing went swimmingly. Ketchersid Team is extremely professional and courteous, and we trusted them every step of the way.

- Alita F.

Ketchersid Team is a one in a million team. They really are passionate about what they do and they work really hard to help your goals and dreams come true. I think that they genuinely care about making the people they works for and with happy.

- Savannah Grabo

Had a fantastic experience with Ketchersid Team selling our condo. They are hard working and professional and I highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling!!!

- Sold a Condo home in 2020 in Destin, FL.

I’ve used a few realtors in the past to both buy and sell, and Ketchersid Team stacks up there as the best. This was our first purchase in Florida and they took care of all the details, looked at several houses and negotiated well to get a good price. During the search, Ketchersid Team was available all the time to discuss potential houses, rental revenue projections and everything else needed. Even more special is that after the house was in contract, Ketchersid Team remained engaged to the end…. Not only the closing, but even after with help getting us connected with a rental agency to have rented and helping us through the entire process. We will buy again on the Emerald Coast, and we will use Ketchersid Team.

- Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Miramar Beach, FL.

Ketchersid Team did a great job of marketing our property! They have very good marketing strategies to reach the most potential clients. I would certainly use them again if I were selling another beach house.

- Hugh Miller

We highly recommend Ketchersid Team. They worked hard for us to get a contract on our property within a week at full asking price. The closing process was very smooth. We highly recommend the Ketchersid Team!

- The Flugstad’s

Couldn’t say enough good things about Ketchersid Team! They fought so hard over our 3+ month closing ordeal to where we are now. Home owners! Ketchersid Team is great for military people, very helpful with explaining parts of the va process. Couldn’t recommend enough.

- Masen Calhoun

Jodi is an extremely knowledgeable realtor. We were extremely impressed with her when we came to look at homes. She is very detail oriented and is willing to rearrange her busy schedule to make things happen. She comes prepared and is able to overcome many objections with thoughtful suggestions. It makes the home buying process very easy with her!!

- Dr Dana Hess

Kyle recently helped us to purchase a condo in Miramar Beach, and since we are out of state, we were a little nervous doing the whole thing sight unseen. But he came recommended as a "friend of a friend," and the whole thing went swimmingly. Kyle is extremely professional and courteous, and we trusted him every step of the way. When he was writing up our first offer and I suddenly remembered to ask if the complex allowed pets (the answer was "no"), he was cool as a cucumber and we moved right on to the next option. He is on point with communication, and we actually found ourselves feeling bad for him and wishing that he'd take a break! Honestly, there are many great real estate agents in Okaloosa and Walton Counties -- no denying that. It's a strong market. But with Kyle, you get the complete package: top professional ability combined with genuine kindness and warmth. If we're ever fortunate enough to return to northwest Florida, our first "We need a house!" call would definitely be to Kyle.

- Alita F

Had a fantastic experience with Crystal selling our condo. She is hard working and professional and I highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling!!!

- Sold a Condo home in 2020 in Destin, FL.

We enjoyed working with Kyle. We dealt with Kyle only remotely. He handled everything locally for us as we were out of state during the entire process.

- Sold a home in 2021 in Miramar Beach, FL.

Great Realtor, very knowledgeable. He actually listens to your goals and does a great job of finding the properties that meat your criteria. I will definitely work with again

- Sold a home in 2020 in Miramar Beach, FL.

Suellen, did an excellent job for us during our recent condominium purchase. Initial contact was made from a Zillow search. Not only was Suellen professional in her dealings She was over the top responsive and helpful in obtaining an attorney to close our transaction and a contractor to renovate the property. Five stars is not enough for Suellen.

- John Brilbeck

Melissa Walls helped us purchase the retirement condo of our dreams. Her professional experience made the buying experience run smoother than any of the 5 houses I've purchased in the past through other realtors/companies. She was always on point through out the buying process and sometimes was a step ahead. Melissa had our full confidence that she would get all aspects of the purchase done and on time. Melissa made us feel like more than just a client. Melissa is an Asset to anyone's team and company. If we ever need to buy real estate again it will be through her.

- Bought and sold a Condo home in 2020 in Destin, FL.

We had a great experience working with Suellen on purchasing our vacation home in Destin FL. She definitely loves what she does! She is very knowledgeable and very patient. Our best interests were always her top priority. We are very happy and very grateful for her help.

- Dawn Hoang

Melissa Walls is amazing! She was extremely prepared with listings and expertise. It did not take long at all to narrow our search. Melissa listened and knew almost instantly what we were looking for. We are so happy in our new home. Thanks Melissa with Real Joy Properties! I am already recommending Melissa to my friends when they get "serious" about moving to the Panhandle.

- Susan

As a first time home buyer, I had little understanding of where to start with vetting potential properties. Suellen went to great lengths to communicate the ins and outs of what was required, and definitely put me at ease through each phase of the process. Whenever something popped up, she was there to problem solve. It was, and still is, a tough market. However, Suellen's professionalism and expertise ensured I landed a beautiful home that I can call my own

- Gil Mergeoff

Allyson Price is an AWESOME & EXPERIENCED realtor. Very knowledge and super quick to answer or find the answer to questions. She made purchasing our 2nd place a quick and easy experience. I highly recommend her being your realtor. She will not disappoint you.

- Kristi Meadows

Couldn’t have asked for a better agent. She listens! After she listened to what WE wanted she set out to beat our expectations. If I were looking for another home I would call her every time. We love our new home. Suellen made that happen. She’s the top!

- Jonni Eman

Melissa was a joy to work with every day! My husband and I were going through the process of purchasing our 1st home ever. She had answers to all of our questions and was available to talk 24/7. If she couldn't answer her phone at the time we called (which was rare!) she called us back within a few hours. One of our favorite things about her was that she knew smart, reliable people in the area to complete our inspection, our VA loan, and WDO inspection. Once we found Melissa, my husband and I did hardly any work!! My husband and I are moving to Florida from out of state. Due to COVID-19 we had to buy our house virtually. Melissa made that process a breeze. She Face-timed us at least 4-5 times to show us every inch of the house. She took still pictures and sent us videos of each room. The process was all done on time and she was checking up with us every couple of days to make sure we did not need any help. Even after the sale, she still continues to contact us to make sure we do not need any help with the house. She was truly a joy to work with. We wouldn't have wanted any other realtor to help us buy our first home as a married couple :)

- Julianna Koen

Very knowledgeable and super helpful, enjoyed the whole process easy to work with def, will recommend her, great realtor. This was our first time buying a condo and she make it happen and very smooth process
