Bought a home in 2014 in South Patrick Shores, FL 32937.
We contacted Ms Griffin's office and were referred to one of her associates. Although initially communication went very well, once we were under contract the agent became increasingly harder to reach and less forthcoming with information. We do not feel she negotiated fairly on our behalf because she was mainly interested in keeping her commission as high as possible, and because we were in a hurry to move, we overpaid. Never even got a "thank you" from them. I would not recommend this agency.
Response from Jackie on 03/09/2015
I'm sorry you had a bad experience with my team member, Kelly. I was not aware there was an issue until this post on Zillow was made. When I shared it with Kelly she said that you were very excited to find the perfect home with the limited amount of time that you had. She negotiated the closing costs and repairs to be paid by the seller, keeping you within your budget. The home appraised at purchase value; you called to say how excited you were to get the house at that price. Kelly had surgery the day after closing and since you did not attend closing she wasn't able to give you the gift that the company prepared. When I asked she said that you had not moved in yet and that she would deliver as soon as you did. Buying a home is such an important milestone for anyone so I appreciate your honesty and will work closely with my team to not repeat a negative experience. We wish you all the joy and happiness you deserve.

Jackie and her team are by far the most professional reality group
we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Jackie suggested a sale price that was completely fair to both we, the sellers, as well as the buyers. Our home sold with two weeks of listing, and closed within a month.
very knowledgeable of the market, excellent communicator and expert guidance, very responsive
to the needs of the buyer, I would recommend Jackie to any buyer or seller in the Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral, or Melbourne area and in between market, She IS THE agent to have with you for your needs.

Working with Jackie was wonderful! She is not only extremely professional, but also very personable. She was very quick to respond to our inquiries. She really listened to what we were looking for and shared her knowledge of the area to help us find the perfect house. Even after closing, we have continued to use her recommendations for local services and have been very pleased. We would definitely call Jackie for any future buying/selling needs!

If you are looking to buy, rent or sell a property on the Space Coast of Florida, the only person to call is Jackie Griffin at Florida Lifestyle Realty. Everyone who works at this agency is passionate about finding the right property for their clients. Jackie and her staff are professional and compassionate. They will find your dream home whether it is your permanent residence, a vacation or retirement home or a short term vacation rental.
Jackie's experience in the real estate field is incomparable to all others. But more than that, she truly cares about each and every client and wants what is best for them. When my husband and I were looking for an affordable vacation home, Jackie and her team worked tirelessly to secure the house we wanted. They took additional photos and sent us all the information we needed to close on the property without having to travel to Florida. We trusted her and her staff implicitly. We felt like we were family and being treated as such.
Florida Lifestyle Realty now manages our property when we rent it out for part of the year. They handle everything about the process from finding tenants to hiring cleaning personnel and taking care of finances and taxes. We don't have to worry about a thing.
Sometimes it's hard to know what company to choose when you are making a life choice, like purchasing or selling a home. But not in Brevard County. Without a doubt I would recommend Florida Lifestyle Realty to anyone who is in the market for real estate.

Our experience with Florida Lifestyle Realty, Jackie Griffin and her expert team was truly amazing. We live in Massachusetts and listed our property with Florida Lifestyle Realty. We were concerned about being so far away. Jackie’s team made it seamless. The communications, emails and updates during the listing were impressive to say the least. Once the condo sold, her team guided us seamlessly through the whole process. Jackie asked me, once the condo was sold, “Is there anything we could have done differently to make the process better.” Our response “Are you kidding, don’t change a thing. “ Thank you to everyone at Florida Lifestyle for making a stressful event so enjoyable.
