"the ONLY one we would ever recommend"
"My husband and I think she is great, precise, quick, conscientious, timely, we would highly recommend her. We are in our mid 50's and have never met a realtor like her. She is the ONLY one we would ever recommend. We truly cannot thank you enough, please keep referring her!"
"Aileen gave us hope.. "
We were very lucky to have found Aileen. She was knowledgeable, professional, easy to talk to and an all over great Realtor. Most importunately she made herself available to us and always returned calls and emails very quickly. She is the type to think outside the box in trying to find you your dream home. We had been disappointed in the past with the Realtors we had worked with, but Aileen gave us hope that there are still great ones working out there everyday, you just have to find them.

" saved us thousands of $$"
I highly recommend working with Aileen. She has been fantastic to work with - professional, friendly, honest, prompt, and diligent. My wife and I re-located to Tampa from Seattle last fall, and we interviewed several agents before deciding to work with Aileen. We liked the idea that she is working exclusively for us (she has other clients, but no one selling, obviously) and there are no potential conflicts of interest. She also has a ton of experience in many markets around the country, and she was very knowledgeable about the areas we were focusing on - South Tampa and St Pete.
We were very up-front with Aileen and told her that we are fairly high-maintenance in that we want a lot of communication and we will be very involved in the process, especially when we're ready to move on a house. That's simply how our personalities are, and she has been phenomenal in her follow-up, communication, and in her recommendations. I'm sure she saved us thousands of $$ in our negotiation for the home we just got under contract on – she read the seller and his agent perfectly and encouraged us to stick by our initial offer and not negotiate. Sure enough, after trying to counter, the seller ended up accepting our initial offer. It was a risk, but she had earned our trust by then and it paid off.
"We never could have gotten our dream home without her"
We are writing to express our pleasure with real estate agent Aileen Kane who represented us in our recent purchase of a single-family home. Aileen guided us through the entire process, from loan qualification, to searching for houses, and finally making the offer and closing the deal. We credit Aileen with a smooth, stress-free home-buying experience. This is our third purchase of property, and never had we had such a pleasurable experience. Aileen is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. We never could have gotten our dream home without her.
If you are looking to buy a new home, Aileen is a the most professional agent we have ever done business with.

"She provided invaluable assistance"
Excellent experience dealing with Aileen. Aileen was hired to represent us as our exclusive buyer's agent for a potential new home purchase in Florida. Aileen proved to be professional, knowledgeable, and diligent throughout the process, from initial property search to final closing. She provided invaluable assistance in helping us through the process of buying an out of state home (we are in Colorado presently). Aileen pays attention to detail, gets things done, and always followed up in a timely manner. We were super impressed with her efforts and would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking to buy real estate in Florida.

"Superior Knowledge and Skills"
Aileen is a buyer broker who assisted us in the purchase of a condo in St. Petersburg, FL. She organized showings in order that we could see numerous properties in 1 day, enabling a fairly quick decision on our part. She provided extremely valuable information and saw to it that we avoided the many hidden pitfalls in the present Florida realestate market. Aileen handled our negotiations, provided resources for mortgage and insurance, handled the property inspection and obtained a site plan. Negotiations were difficult with the sellers. Aileen handled this like the professional that she is. In all, Aileen made this a positive, educational and fun experience for us.
Overall we could not be more pleased with the way that the transaction went. We were kept informed continually and were provided with advice, based on Aileen's experience and knowledge of the local real estate market. We were 1200 miles away when all of the hard work was done by Aileen. I do not believe that this real estate transaction could have been accomplished without a broker, with superior knowledge and skills, representing our interests.

"Aileen was so knowledgeable ..."
I don't know what would have happened to us if our first contact with looking for a second home in Florida hadn't been with Aileen. We live in the north but have relatives in Trinity, FL who we visit several times a year. We will eventually retire in Florida and decided to buy ahead of time so that we have a place to stay while we were down visiting.
We started with searching the web and stumbled across some places we wanted more information on. Sent an email and that was the start of a very positive experience. Aileen not only provided additional info but offered to help and through emails back and forth and lots of key questions asked by her she had a list of places that she thought would meet our needs. We flew down to Florida for a weekend, met with Aileen and for two days looked at property's, narrowed them down and did second and third looks. By the end of weekend we had actually made a decision and were ready to make an offer. What we also like so much about Aileen was during those two days we not only looked at properties but were introduced to the area. We drove through a park, checked out Gulf Harbor beach, drove through Tarpon Springs (know where to buy the best Baklava) ate at a quaint place in Hudson along the water. Aileen was so knowledgeable and we really enjoyed our time.It's been two years and we're still happy with our property choice.

"Aileen is a Pro ..."
Aileen is an excellent buyer's broker. She is extremely knowledgeable of the entire process and was really instrumental in helping us negotiate a price and purchase our home. As a buyer's broker, she researched and presented the most recent sales in the area. We felt we payed a fair price due to her diligence and guidance. We are pleased to give her our highest recommendation.
"Aileen Helped with OnLine Homes ..."
We were looking specifically for a Buyer's Agent and found Aileen through the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents.
Our experience was wonderful. We don't live in the area, but Aileen listened to our needs and helped us preview a number of homes online. She coordinated appointments with our travel schedule, and was very attentive.
Aileen has an excellent knowledge of the market, and provided great feedback on the different communities we visited. I give Aileen and Exclusively Buyers Realty my highest recommendation.
"We Almost Gave Up ..."
We would have gave up looking for a house if it had not been for Aileen. We had use other realtors in the pass and did not like our experience with them. Aileen listen to us and would not waste our time looking at homes that just did not fit us. She ask questions about our like and dislikes. She took that and before long she had us the perfect home. Loved every minute of our house buying experience.
"Working with Aileen from abroad ..."
We started working with Aileen while we were still living overseas. After our first visit to the FL gulf coast area just over a year ago, we knew we had the right buyer's agent. She kept us apprised of changing values and trends, helping us every step of the way until we closed. And that's not all ... she continues to help with her knowledge and experience of everything from setting up utilities to finding reputable contractors for painting and remodeling. I can't imagine what our experience would have been without Aileen there to flatten out the speed bumps!
"When You Need Her Most ..."
Aileen was great in helping us with a challenging transaction (the seller did something illegal). She went above and beyond in accommodating us, even helping us find a lawyer. We really appreciated her guidance in the process.
