Happy Customers

“From the moment I reached out to Kim for help in entering the Florida real estate market (I’m an out of state investor), I found her and her team to be very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. They found me a property that fit all of my criteria and I was able to close pretty quickly. When I went to visit the property and meet Kim in person I was happy with her professionalism and hospitality. I also used Hampton’s property management company to manage the property I bought and everything has been great. The team is experienced and I will be using them again for my next investment property purchase in the Orlando/Tampa area.”
“Kim Meredith-Hampton went out of her way to help me get the information I needed on a rental property. She is professional, considerate and trustworthy. Thanks for your kindness and excellent attention to detail!”
“I just purchased my 1st deal utilizing Kim and her team. They were absolutely incredible in helping me through every step of the process. I am an out of state investor, so having a team that I trusted was huge in buying a property sight unseen. Kim and her team are continuing to help arrange contractors now after the deal is closed. I will be working with Kim and her team exclusively for all my investments in Florida. I would encourage anyone considering Florida to do the same! Thank you Kim!”
