'We specialize in memories': RealJoy Properties celebrates customer-elected awards

The RealJoy Properties team features seasoned Real Estate Agents and a family-oriented staff ready to help customers find the 'Joy of Ownership.'

Local real estate boutique RealJoy Properties is celebrating this weekend and wants the public to come join them during The Best of the Emerald Coast event at Grand Boulevard Oct. 24, from 6 to 9 p.m.

“We would like to invite everyone to come out and meet us,” said Owner and Realtor Jodi Ketchersid. “We are going to have a booth and are giving away a three-night stay in a beachfront condo by RealJoy vacation rental property and some Big Kahuna's tickets for next summer season.”

The celebration comes on the heels of back-to-back Finest on the Emerald Coast wins, and the first ever Best of the Emerald Coast win for the company. All three awards are customer-driven, meaning the company has pulled ahead of others in this region according to their service and reputation in the community.

“What makes us different than everyone else is we have been around for a decade, and all of our agents are seasoned agents,” Ketchersid said on why RealJoy Properties took the win. “We focus on marketing our properties and not marketing ourselves, 90-percent of our business is referrals from customers to new clients.

Another feature that sets RealJoy Properties apart is the fact that Owners Jodi and Bill Ketchersid and the company’s Broker Karen Ward all hold law degrees.

However, even with such high qualifications Ketchersid said of higher value in her mind is the fact that her tight-knit group of 12 agents works hard to serve their clients needs without making the process feel like a sales pitch.

“We specialize in memories,” said Buyers Agent Trisha Henri. “Our slogan is, ‘Where the joy of ownership is real,’ and we really do become friends with people, it’s not a transaction.”

Ketchersid added that as a working mother of five she knows the importance of family values in both her clients and the workplace.

“My passion is really in homes and family properties,” said Ketchersid. “We focus on family-oriented work atmosphere; We all live here and work here so we know the area and are always looking to point our customers to the best properties.”
