Johana Herbinger was our realtor from KBT. "Johana the jewel" was so very professional and responsive to any of our needs. I will be the first to admit to being a bit anxiety prone and she was always available to answer any of my questions. Should we need to sell in the future, our choice will be KBT! We also dealt a lot with KBT's office contact Kristine Roody. She was also very conscientious and quickly responded to any of our calls. Both ladies are an asset to KBT. Thank you!

KBT Realty Group hit a home run with us. They gave us several options concerning how they will help us sell our home. Our home sold in one week. KBT has earned our highest recommendation with no qualifiers. They are that good. Joan and Henry R.

If you’re looking for a seller’s agent, look no further. Rick and his team were the reason that my mother’s home sold in St. James Plantation. My mother moved out of her home to Florida prior to listing her house, and Rick’s team helped to coordinate everything leading up to and during the listing, from lining up a handyman to fix some things around the house to managing an insurance claim we had to file during the listing. Rick knows St. James and can position your home not only to be seen by prospective buyers but get you the offers you are looking for. He is informed, realistic, articulate, even-tempered, assertive when needed, and empathetic to the emotions that can come into play when selling your home. I can’t say enough to compliment Rick and his team. Thanks to you all for everything you did!

We had a great time working with KBT Realty Group. Rick Binford our agent was great and helped us tremendously. We are from out of town and it is difficult looking for property outside of the area. Rick was very accomodating for our time when we came into town and helped us find what were were looking for in a slim market. They also helped every step of the way through closing! Thanks Rick!

Working with Kristine and Rick was a great experience. They were very responsive with our needs, and advised us all through the process. It was particularly difficult purchase since we didn't live in the area. Highly recommend them!
