Testimonials for Maya Thomas, Broker
Renee and Barry Travis, Big Pine, FL09/04/2013
"Maya has got to be one of the most patient and caring realtors around. She spent two years helping us find the perfect house for us. We sent her on wild goose chases and she never complained one bit! There was never a question that was out of her reach, and her knowledge of both the area and the complexity of buying in Monroe County was exceptional. We felt completely at ease knowing Maya had our back!
Fast forward three years later and a health crisis with our son required we sell our house quickly and move to a different area. Needing to save as much money as possible, we decided to try and sell our house by owner first before listing it with Maya. Out of the goodness of her heart, she pointed out all of the things we could do to our house to increase the selling value and put us in contact with contractors who could help us do the work. To our shock our house sold quickly, and out of compassion for our situation Maya once again helped us make sure the process was legal and things were done correctly. She was a Godsend and we don't know what we would have done without her. She has a heart of gold AND is the best realtor in town!"

"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."
Julie Bazil, Big Pine Key, FL08/30/2013
“Maya is a great asset to have on your side. My fiance and I had been trying to purchase a home together for over a year and Maya stuck by us through thick and thin to ensure we purchased exactly what we wanted instead of settling. Maya's expertise in the industry will be able to find anyone their dream home!”
Jonathon Lee, Dublin, OH08/30/2013
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."
Teresa Moore, Cary, NC08/30/2013
"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)."
Kathy Smallwood, Irvington, AL08/30/2013
"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!"
Michael Telesco, Clifton, NJ08/30/2013
"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 the sale she steered me clear. She will search tirelessly to find the right house for you and keep you informed of 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!"
Ralph Cosme, Miami, FL08/30/2013
"I heard about Maya Marie through one of my co-workers who used her services in the past. She was highly impressed with Mayas services, so she gave me her recommendation. Maya was extremely professional, punctual and very reliable. Her work ethics are outstanding. All my questions and concerns were answered in a timely manner. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market, rules and regulations. She made me feel very comfortable in this very stressful time of buying a second home. I highly recommend her professional service."
Brandie Peretz, Key West, FL08/30/2013
"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!"
Frank Bets, Big Pine Key, FL08/30/2013
“Maya is a dedicated hard working agent whose main focus is on your needs. As a home buyer, Maya did not pressure me into looking at higher priced homes, unlike other agents I have worked with before. Maya is knowledgeable, personable and extremely patient. If you are looking for an honest and ethical agent, you have found her.”
