Bought a home in 2014.
In a word, Maya Thomas of Sellstate Island Properties is a powerhouse! Maya Thomas is one of the most knowledgeable, supportive, patient, and encouraging, persons I know. She truly takes matters to heart. For instance, I had a stressful experience dealing with an online auction site filled frustration due to their outsourced poor communication skills, lack of control, no inspection period, over $15,000 in fees, blank forms that they asked me to sign, and my sleepless nights worrying. Maya was right there as my champion and guardian, reassuring me all the way.

You simply must have Maya Thomas as your agent.

Dear Jon, you're very brave, in your work, and for buying a home site unseen from the other side of the planet! Thank your for your service to our country. I cannot even imagine being in a war zone and dealing with all of the pressures of buying a home. On top of being in a war zone on the other side of the planet you bought an auction property! To add a cherry to the stress mountain, getting a loan in the US while in another country and having a lot of your important papers on the other side of the US added a new dimension of hardship. Thank you for sticking with it! Now you have the most beautiful home in the neighborhood. You picked the perfect paint color, the perfect dark wood floors and everything is fixed and looks brand new and shiny clean. I'm so happy for you! Congratulations! Thank you again for your service to our country. I'm grateful for your trust and I appreciate your business. I'm a call, text or email away. I'll always be here for you! Maya

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Key West, FL.
Highly endorse Maya Thomas as a real estate agent. She is a high-energy realtor motivated to work to get the job of selling your house done. My property was on the market for only a few months and it sold for $17,000 over asking price thanks to Maya's work. In this down seller's market, that was a very welcome surprise! Maya had buyers at my property as soon as it went on the market and we got offers over asking price that first day. We had two buyer deals fall through due to buyer financing, and as disappointing as that was, Maya was on top of it getting buyers back out to my house immediately, again making offers over asking. This was my first time as a seller and Maya was available to me to answer questions, address things that came up, provide advise and guidance through every step. Her availability extended to after business hours and on weekend. Basically, she was always available, returning phone calls and emails rapidly and made certain that I felt like she was there for me through the whole process. Thank you, Maya!

Hi Elizabeth, thank you so much for the great honor of allowing me to sell your home! You are a PERFECT seller. You followed every single recommendation that I made and that allowed us to present a gorgeous move in ready home to the market. We wouldn't have been able to get the extra money without YOUR preparation and responsiveness. You carefully read every word of the contract and knew exactly what your options were. You think like a lawyer. I say that with my highest compliments. You are smart, tough, thorough, reasonable and a straight forward business woman. Your good decisions helped us secure our 2nd contract $17,000 over asking price. You were aware of every Critical Date and managed them like a professional real estate agent rather than a seller. You are an impressive woman. Thank you for being a perfect seller and for allowing me to work for you. With gratitude, admiration, friendship, love and warm wishes, Maya

Hi Ann, What an adventure! You lived through a short sale, a forced hurricane evacuation and a months long Closing delay. If you were not the Woman of Steel that you are our Closing wouldn't have happened. You, my strong willed and unstoppable friend, would let nothing stand between you and achieving your goal. What a glorious, strong, smart and determined business woman you are! Thank you for hanging in there when most people would have given up. I can only imagine you in your office making things happen! Congratulations on your gorgeous new home on the very best street in Old Town Key West! You are a JOY to work with and so fun hang out with. Thank you for our celebratory lunch with LouLou at Santiago's Bodega (heavenly)! It was so fun drinking wine in the afternoon with you and LouLou! I'm looking forward to many more lunch dates with you both. Thank you for the huge flower bouquet! Lots love, big hugs and warmest wishes, Maya

Maya provides exceptional service - I can't imagine a better realtor to help with property in the Keys. What made her stand out is not only her real estate knowledge (particularly short sales/foreclosures), but also her familiarity with the area, and her incredible responsiveness (early/late hours, online presence).

But above all, Maya really enjoys what she does. It's apparent when someone is passionate about what they do, whether they enjoy it, and it makes all the difference to work with someone like this (no matter what the profession is).

Hi Teresa, Thank you for the great honor of allowing me to work for you. You won my Organizational Queen and my Eagle Scout award! You were on top of very single detail, every single date and were always 2 steps ahead of every deadline. You are an incredible business woman and a great artist. I absolutely LOVED your video (phenomenal!). Someone asked me how long it's been since I've taken a 'real' vacation. It's been nearly a decade and I don't feel deprived. I consider going out of town for a class or a convention a recharge and my kind of vacation. I fall in love with my clients. I meet the most wonderful people. I have been blessed with smart, hard working, kind and exceptional clients who inspire me. You inspire me. Thank you for allowing me to serve you. With appreciation and gratitude, friendship, love, a hug and my very best wishes, Maya

Bought a home in 2013.
I strongly recommend Maya Thomas as a real estate agent in Key West and the Keys. Her ceaseless energy, vast knowledge and unquestioned integrity gave us peace of mind through the entire process. She was always available and responded to our texts and emails within minutes and the hour of day or night was never a factor. Her knowledge of the industry, the market, and of Key West itself was invaluable in so many ways from knowing neighborhoods to recommending a lender and service providers. Then she arranged meetings and met our inspectors and surveyor, made a walk through video, and consistently went far above and beyond all expectations. Maya was truly exceptional and I give her the highest marks and recommendation.

Hi Scott, I was so surprised when you decided to make an offer. You flew in and when we got in the car you said, "I'm just looking and not ready to buy." It's not every day that a buyer finds the right home, and gets it at the right price, on the first trip to Key West! Probably because most buyers don't do as much research as you did before you arrived. You won my Eagle Scout Buyer Award (most fully prepared buyer on the planet!). You may have the most soothing voice of anyone I've ever talked to. It just feels good talking to you. You are careful, thorough, always asked smart questions and read every word of everything I sent to you. I'm very grateful for the opportunity to work for you. Please call, text or email me if I can help with anything. It was a JOY working for you! With my very best wishes, a big hug, love, friendship and gratitude, Maya

Bought a Other home in 2012 in Key West, FL.
Maya is by far the best real estate agent that we have ever dealt with! Her professionalism, level of real estate knowledge, integrity, and sheer work ethic make her an exemplerary agent! Maya cares for her clients and listens to their needs whether buying a luxury resort home or a tiny retirement condo, Maya will help you make your dream come true! She understands the Keys market and does the research necessary to make the sale. I can't say enough about Maya's abilities as a real estate agent she represents the best of her profession and will not let you down!

Hi Kathy, I can still remember the day that I received your first call about the home on Staples. You were so sincere, straight forward and easy to talk to. I was so disappointed that the house was already under contract. We talked almost every day for more than a year. We wrote offers and lost homes. I know it was hard on you. It was my Mission to to make you happy. You worked so hard and your positive outlook were always an inspiration to me. I'm so grateful that I met you. Thank you for allowing me to serve you. Closing day was one of the happiest days of my life! There is nothing like seeing a really good family get a really great home at a really great price. I'm counting the days until you retire and can come join me full time in Keys! Thank you for your gorgeous gifts (you went WAY over board!!!). With appreciation, gratitude, friendship, love and good wishes, Maya

""Maya is the best real estate agent that I have ever worked with. She is honest, trustworthy, reliable, and a joy to work with. Maya tries her best to get you the best deal and save you money. Maya has a lot of patience with her clients and doesn't try to push you into buying a property that you don't want. I would recommend Maya's services to anyone currently trying to buy a home because she simply is the best!" Brandie Peretz, Key West, FL"

Hi Brandie, I'm very grateful that you and your mom and dad allowed me to work for your family. What a blessing to have such kind, gracious and lovely people to work for! I'm so excited that we were able to get more than 10% off of the purchase price after we were under contract. I was always happy to see your name pop up on my phone. I have a very special place in my heart for your family. Thank you so much for your very generous gifts from Coach (WOW!!!!). I L-O-V-E everything and still cannot believe that you gave me such an extravagant gift. I know we'll find a commercial space on Duval for you and your husband on the right block at the right price. Hang in there. I know it isn't easy being patient! Thank you, thank you, thank you for your kindness, friendship, hard work, determination, never giving up, your generosity and all of the good memories. Working for you was a gift from heaven! With hugs, love and my very best wishes, Maya

Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Key West, FL.
Maya was thorough, knowledgeable and available every time I had a question. She invested months of her time to help us decide what Key West property was perfect for us. She also taught us a ton along the way. Key West is a unique market and despite all my research she gave us invaluable guidance about things I never would have thought of until too late! She was wonderful in person and handled a digital closing by getting me everything I needed in advance so I had the option to sign remotely. I recommend her to anyone looking in the Key West area, either for a home, vacation home or rental property. I am completely satisfied and thrilled with the result.

Jonathon, you and Jess were DREAM buyers! I feel very honored and blessed to have served you. Thank you for allowing me to work for you. You may be the hardest working person that I know! I'm looking forward to hearing about how well your investment is going and the day when you don't have to work and can just get a direct deposit on your investments every month. I'm very excited that we are working on your second Key West property! I stand ready to serve now and forever! Warm wishes and my very best, Maya

Showed home in 2010 in Bay Point, FL 33040.
Maya has been the most amazing real estate agent I have ever had the chance to work with! I am a very demanding client with many questions which she patiently answered every one. She also looks out for her clients and protects them from themselves sometimes. Had I hired a less reputable agent I would have more then likely found myself embroiled in a long legal battle on a property that I had previously had my heart set on. Even though a large commission would have went to Maya from that sale she steered me clear. She will search tirelessly to find the right house for you and keep you informed on the Florida Keys housing market. She is professional and committed to her clients and I only wish I could buy more houses from Maya Thomas!” April 20, 2012

Thank you for the recommendation Mark! I wouldn't say that you are demanding... You just want a list and projected completion date for every detail on our To Do list, want it finished yesterday and want it checked in triplicate! I LOVE how organized you are. I admire you very much. You were the most organized human being I've ever worked with. You shocked me 2 or 3 times - maybe more! There were things to be done that are my job and you called the county and did other tasks before I could even get to them. You may have done some of them before I even thought of them! Ahhh, the joy of working with an EXPERIENCED INVESTOR! I absolutely loved working with you Mark! If you ever retire, and wanted to work in real estate, you would be the BEST assistant or partner on the planet! Thank you so much for working with me and allowing me to serve you. I had a great time working with you and and I'm so happy to call you a friend. Love and good wishes, Maya

Maya Thomas is a very detailed organized and friendly agent. If you are looking to buy a first home, second home, vacation property, investment property or any property in the Florida Keys I would highly recommend Maya Marie Thomas.

My wife and I wanted to look into buying a second home in the Florida Keys so that we could be snow birds one day. I spoke with Maya and Emailed her prior to our arrival several times. She was ALWAYS on top of things. Every question I had was answered the SAME day. She and I worked together on what property my wife and I wanted to see. The day after we arrived in Key West us three spent the day looking at more than 10 houses. Her organization skills ROCK. Love her attention to detail.

I cannot say enough about Maya Thomas. I have spoken with quite a few real estate agents in the Florida Keys and it seems like a lot of them don't want to take the time to even deal with you if you are not going to spend a half million dollars. Maya is the exception, trust me. My wife and I were looking for something below 100K ( which is pretty hard to find anywhere in the keys) and Maya spent the WHOLE day with us looking at property. You can do the math for yourself on what her commission is on something lower than 100K. That didn't matter to Maya. She treated us like we were buying a 1 million dollar property.

Maya has the best work ethic I have ever seen in a real estate agent.

Final words, If you are looking for ANY property in the Florida Keys and you want to feel like someone cares for your best interest and with absolutely no pressure then you need to talk to Maya Marie Thomas

Hi Rick, Thank you so much for your kind words and beautiful review! You and Di are extremely organized buyers who do their homework, analyze every detail, ask all the right questions and have incredible energy! Most buyers have the energy to see 5 houses in a day. From our conversations before you arrived I could see you were on a mission. I can't believe that you could see 10 houses in a day! And circle back to see 2 homes twice! I had a wonderful day with you. Thank you for lunch! I'm looking forward to taking care of you. I am at your service!
