Snowbird Living provided all our needs in selling our home. Kim was great in showing us some homes when we first started looking. And then when we decided to sell ours, Kim immediately lined us up with Whitney. It seemed like Whitney was at our home the next day or two. She was very knowledgeable, came complete with the initial paperwork, took pictures of our home and posted it right away. She was available to answer any questions throughout the whole process. We loved receiving the monthly statement of how many times our home was viewed. Our home went up for sale on April 17 and we close July 1st! Thank you Whitney and thank you Snowbird Living for the excellent services you provided!

Thank you so much for putting up with us Tina. We were anxious about the conclusion of our business , but we need not have worried. The funds have been transferred and all is well. We wish you continued success. You are a bright bulb in your line of work. It was a great pleasure meeting and working with you.

After looking at hundreds of Central Florida listing online and in person, I was close to giving up. Then, I was lucky enough to meet Alycia Osborne, an agent who listened to me--and heard me. She is smart, professional, and very personable! No more wild goose chases to see homes I had no interest in or could not afford. Alycia saw my Big Picture almost as clearly as I did: "something cute, in a unique setting, on or near the water, and surrounded by tropical foliage". Not an easy task perhaps--but Alycia came through with flying colors--and turned my vision into reality! I could not be happier--and highly recommend her services to any and all who have a vision or a dream!

I contacted Marcy via phone to inquire about a certain home and she returned my call promptly. I was to have surgery and it ultimately prevented me from traveling to Florida to inspect the home. In the meantime the home sold. Based on my brief interaction with Marcy, I will definitely call her again....She was very helpful.
Dear Ms. Kim O’Dell,
Kim was very much on top of things through the whole process. We bought our home sight unseen and she was very honest about the property. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy in the Lakeland area.
I had the opportunity with work with Kim on the sale of two places in Lakeland Fl. One belonged to my dad and the other my grandparents. They had all recently passed away so times were pretty tough and on top of that I lived in Michigan. I had listed my dad’s place for sale by owner for a month or two before Kim had seen the sign and asked if she could help. I was skeptical since it was my first time going thru this. I didn’t know how much of a difference she would make. Kim was very kind in her offer to help and I found that she was very knowledgeable and handled everything. She knew what people would be looking for so it made the house easier to market. It sold quickly after listing with her.
Then about a year and a half later when it was time to sell my grandparents there was no hesitation in going back to her again. Kim worked hard to help sell the house and again it sold within a few months.
I don’t typically write reviews for people or companies, but I felt Kim’s work was worthy of the praise. There was never any high pressure tactics and I always felt that she was honest in her assessments and guidance. I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling.
I recently purchased my first home. Tina was the first and only agent I needed. Tina went above and beyond by dropping off papers at my job, listening to me whine and providing sound advice for purchasing my home. She was truly the most accommodating agent. She made buying my first home a much easier process. I would recommend Tina to anyone buying or selling a home. You will have the best!
Thanks for a job well done, you have handled everything with complete professionalism and I appreciate you very much.
I would like to take a little time to express my appreciation to Snowbird Living agent,Kim O'Dell. We were looking for a retirement home in Florida. We looked at hundreds of home in the Florida area, then found one in Foodwood Village. Lakeland Florida. We contacted-- Kim O'Dell. We were buying a home site un-seen, something we have never done and was very nervous about it. After contact with Kim, I found her to be one of the most professional and pleasant person I have met over the phone. She guaranteed the home was like the pictures we had seen on the web. She helped us with the purchase of the home and we flew down on 4/28/17. We met Kim and she walked us through the home and was very impressed. The home was as it was on the web, we then closed on the home. I don't have enough things to say on how nice it was dealing with Kim and I want to say Thank-You for helping us on our new retirement home..

I went through Snowbird Living and had the great pleasure to have Tina as my realtor. She went above and beyond to make my purchase as easy as possible from beginning to end. I was in NY and she handled everything professionally and in a timely manner. I would recommend anyone interested in purchasing a home in the area to contact Snowbird Living and ask for Tina Carter.
Thanks for a job well done, you have handled everything with complete professionalism and I appreciate you very much.
While I was on vacation in Hawaii, a realtor friend in North Carolina gave me Kim O'Dell's name to contact to list my home in Lakeland. I called Kim, what a professional agent. We lucked out. Kim was so professional and kind, gentle and sweet spirited. She sold our home in 31 days. I would and have used Kim O'Dell since that day and I always recommend her.
Thank you Marcy for being so true. I appreciate the good experience in purchasing my home with you. Happy customer!!
You definitely go above and beyond for your clients.
My experience working with you was wonderful. I would Highly recommend you to anyone.
I was making a move from California to Lakeland and found Tina Carter with Snowbird Living. I made the purchase of the home 'site unseen' which can be very nerve racking. Tina helped me with every step of the purchase and move, going above and beyond for me. I am so very happy with my new home in Lakeland. The home is exactly what the pictures portrayed on the Snowbird Living website. I can't say enough about Tina, her kindness and professionalism. I highly recommend Tina Carter.
I highly recommend Kim O'Dell. She is very professional as well as friendly and helpful. We live in Ohio, but wanted a Winter home in Florida. Kim worked with us to find the home we desired in Lakeland.
The closing went very smoothly and we absolutely loved our home! Unfortunately, my husband passed away in June 2016, so I contacted Kim once again to list the Florida home. I listed our home on a Monday, Kim showed it on Wednesday and we had a signed contract by Friday. We just had the closing and once again, everything went very smoothly. I am very thankful to have Kim as a realtor for my Florida home. I wish she were my realtor for my Ohio home sale.
My husband and I had been looking for a place to buy in Florida for our retirement. We looked at thousands of homes on the internet for months, usually revisiting the communities on a daily basis. We had certain criteria in mind, including price, location and lot rent. We didn’t want to spend more than $20,000, we wanted to be on a lake and we wanted the lot rent to be no more than $500.00. One day my husband called me in the morning and said get on this website and look at this home. It had everything we wanted, so I contacted the realtor that had the listing; that call turned out to be the best call I ever made – her name is Kim O’Dell. I explained that we would be buying this house sight unseen due to the fact we are from Vermont, so I really needed a lot of pictures. Kim went above and beyond what an average realtor does. She connected me with all the people I needed to complete the purchase process. Her honesty and integrity are second to none. Even after the sale, she continued to guide us to contractors and contacts we needed.
She has never let us down and we are proud to be associated with Kim O’Dell. Anyone who is thinking about purchasing a home in the Lakeland, Florida area needs to go to Kim’s website, Snowbirdliving.com; it will be the best Buying experience - hands down.

You are awesome Marcy! You have made this process go so smoothly. Gary and I thank you so much.
Kim O'Dell is by far the best agent in the area. She sold our home in Heatherwood Village in 42 days and for our asking price. Professional all the way. Recommend her highly.
We bought our mobile home thru Kim and it was done from Wisconsin. She assured us the home was in a nice park, the condition of the mobile home was in excellent condition and she negotiated the price that we were all satisfied with. I would recommend Kim for your buying and selling. She is honest and caring of your wishes. Thank you Kim.
I would highly recommend Kim O'Dell in either purchasing or selling your mobile home in Central Florida. She is both professional and understanding to your wants and needs for your dream home in Florida. Kim works with you to make your experience a pleasurable one.

I wanted to take the time to thank you for all of your assistance in selling the home in Lakeland. I was at a loss of what I needed to do and you made the process so simple. I know that it was your advice on pricing the property correctly and getting it advertised quickly that led to the quick sale. I am so grateful that Foxwood recommended you to us.
I highly recommend that anyone looking for a professional and knowledgeable realtor would contact you. Thank you again for caring so much and working so hard to get this sale through.
Blessings to you.
Luisa Barry, Director, Elder Care Planning of Florida
Working with Kim was such a pleasurable experience!
She took the time to respect my needs and wishes for the type of home I wanted to purchase.
Kim found me the perfect place with all specified criteria. I am now living "the Florida dream" all thanks to Kim.
I definitely will recommend her to friends and family in the future!
Thanks Kim, you rock. Blessings, Ms. Lori
Wanted to let you know how happy we are with our Sales Person, Marcy who sold our house in one day! What a whirlwind move to accommodate the new owner, but great to be on our way. Know how I got Snowbird Living? Advertising on Marci’s car. I saw it parked on my street and immediately googled your site and liked what I saw. I waited until she came out, and asked could I ask her a couple of questions as we already had a for sale sign on our place. She is a great rep and we will continue to recommend her and Snowbird Living to our many friends

It was awesome working with Tina at Snowbird Living to sell our home in Lakeland. During our first meeting she was very informative and answered many questions. Even though we were states away, Tina kept us up to date on our property. She returned our calls and emails promptly. Our home sold quickly and for a fair price. All the paperwork was complete and all the details explained. I would highly recommend using Snowbird Living to sell your property in Florida.
"I would like to thank Whitney for all her help finding and purchasing our retirement home in Winter Haven. I live in Maine and was unable to look at the home. Whitney's honesty was very important and she helped us through the entire process. She gave me all the information that I needed to make an informed decision to buy the perfect home. She did the final walk through for us and when I actually got to walk into the home for the first time I felt at home. She was very helpful and went above and beyond what I expected. She helped me find insurance and utility information. After the sale was finalized she still made a point to stop by an say hello and welcome us to the community and meet me, my wife, and son. I would highly recommend Whitney to everyone as their real estate agent. Thank you."

"Whitney had her hands full. Selling a mobile home that was tucked away in a small community. Needing a larger place due to with relocating....She SOLD IT. It didn't take long. She was dedicated, honest, timely, and totally focused God Bless Her.. I trusted her with everything! Want your MH sold??? Call Whitney Conkey at Snowbirds. " -B. Hau
My wife and I were originally using a different realtor to find a year round home in Lakeland. Everything we were shown wasn't even close to what we were looking for. Then we found Snowbird Living and Alycia. What a difference!
Alycia did an outstanding job guiding us through the process and found a home for us at a nice park, and at a great price. During the closing of the deal, we returned home up north. Aylica handled everything down here to finalize the deal for us. She did an outstanding job, going far beyond our expectations.
We would highly recommend Alycai to anyone interested in purchasing a mobile home in the area.

Whitney, Thank you so much for all your help in selling our home. Your "presentation"
was excellent with the wide variety of pictures. Your written presentation was spot on. You
made it possible to get the price we wanted. Having been in sales all my life, I can really
appreciate your skills. Most people could under estimate you because of your youth but you
have proved your worth to me. Good Job! Pro-performance!
Sincerely, James G Bronson
Tina - Thank you to our favourite American real estate agent for your professionalism and courtesy.....
