I was working with another realtor who just didn't seem interested in helping us find what we were looking for. When I saw a property on Zillow that we were interested in looking at, we contacted Keith. He called us back within the hour of filling out the information on the website and after meeting with us and listening to our needs, he helped us find the perfect house for our blended family.

We are late in writing this review - shame on us! This gentleman found the perfect house for the two of us. We had not owned a home in 35 years. Because of the many changes in the market you could call us "virgin property buyers". Keith was outstanding. His recommendations/ suggestions were always on the mark. His demeanor was not only pleasant but very gracious. He listens to his clients! Two previous agents did not pay attention to our needs, budget or possible wants within that budget. Keith was 100% on the mark - not once, but every time. We have been in our home for nearly a year now and couldn't be happier. Thank goodness Keith came into our lives. We wholeheartedly recommend Keith Henderson. Less ... More

Keith went out of his way, literally, to show us homes in the Leesburg area. He is a friendly and very professional realtor. We recommend him highly and would not hesitate to use him in the future.

My family and I relocated to Florida from Pennsylvania and had the opportunity to work with Keith. He is a GET IT DONE type of guy... He works extremely hard for his clients to make sure all their needs are met.. We had a month of planning before we arrived and our plans got thrown a major curve ball.. Keith was fast acting to work through the challenges and help us land in the home we love!! Work with Keith.. He will not let you down!!!

Keith Henderson was our realtor for well over a year and he helped us out with honesty and professionalism till the day we closed on our new home. He showed us numerous homes throughout that year till we finally found our perfect home and Keith was right there by our side threw the day we closed. Keith and his wife are by far the most amazing people to work with, they are almost family to us now. We highly recommend him and will use him for our future needs.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Keith Henderson for the purchase of our first home. We had a wonderful experience. Keith was very polite, and he made sure to inform us on everything we needed to know. He met everything on our checklist and more. If we had a question or concern he was available right away to answer. We loved how he never pressured us into buying anything, if we didn't like it we simply moved on. As soon as a house came on the market we received emails right away and he was always ready to view houses whenever needed. We highly recommend Keith Henderson and are most definitely going to be calling him when it is time for us to sell and buy another property. Less ... More

Keith is my STAR! He not only listened to our needs, but I believe he definitely listened to our hearts. I don?t have the words to describe how thankful I am for his help. He never gave up and he didn?t let us give up either. He worked with us until he found us the perfect home. He practically held our hand throughout the process and made it all so much easier. I thank God for allowing us to meet him and work with him until the perfect home was ours. I highly recommend him for he is a true professional that will look out for your interest and steer you in the right direction. Less ... More

Keith was a pleasure to work with. He lined up showings in the community we requested and within our price range. Keith gave us advise on what offer price might work on 2 different homes, both of which were successful. We changed our minds about which house we wanted in the middle of the negotiations and the 2nd house was successfully negotiated. Keith has a financial person he works with who was available and arranged financing for us almost over night. We are ready to close the middle of May! We had a very good experience working with Keith. He was available to us at any time and definitely worked for us to get the right home at the right price. Less ... More

We first met Keith Henderson November, 2011 when we were visiting friends in the Lakeland area. He showed us a few homes during our short stay. We returned to Ohio to sell our home. We contacted Keith via email, prior to our permanent move to Florida in August, 2012. He responded quickly to our email request for current listings in age 55+ communities near Lakeland. We contacted him upon our arrival in Florida. He was very accommodating and set up showings for several houses in Highland Fairways. We had emailed several other realtors prior to Keith and never received a response from them. Keith showed us the property we quickly decided that it was the home for us. We had a contract on the house within a few days of our arrival in Florida. Unfortunately, the mortgage company took a long time to approve our loan. They repeatedly asked for additional information. Keith went out of his way to provide the needed information in a timely manner. He was always available to reassure us, since the process was taking so long. We have been in our home for 2 weeks now and are very happy with our decision. We would highly recommend Keith Henderson to anyone looking for a realtor. He was always courteous and professional. My husband had his own real estate office in Ohio and was very impressed with Keith. There should be more realtors with the same work ethics as Keith. Thanks for this opportunity to pass along well deserved praise. Sincerely, Lee & Barbara Clark . Less ... More

Keith got to know our needs and wishes and did a much better job than most realtors would ever be able to do in addressing those and finding and helping us obtain the home we wanted. He helped us purchase the home we wanted as opposed to a home he wanted us to buy, as can often be the case. Keith is exceptionally honest, highly capable and knowledgeable. He helped us through the entire process and we were a difficult client as we had special and very different needs. I would recommend Keith to anyone for their real estate needs. Less ... More

Keith Henderson is an A+ realtor and person in general. He helped us to not just find a HOUSE, but our first HOME which is everything that we wanted and more. Keith is very polite, compassionate about his clients, and genuinely cares about his clients' wants, needs and desires. He always returned our phone calls, texts and emails. If he was unable to contact us immediately due to being tied up showing homes, etc, he always called back within a reasonable amount of time. Keith made us feels like we were his only clients due to the care he showed us, his determination to help us find the home we loved, and his flexibility. He worked around our schedules, often traveled great distances to have us simply sign a paper, and sternly negotiated for us. We are truly grateful for Keith. We could not have imagined riding the tumultuous roller-coaster of home buying with any other realtor. He will always and forever be OUR realtor and friend! Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
Call him, he sounded very nice on the phone. Said he would call me right back but never did. Then I sent a message through Zillow.com and, again, never contacted me. I went to the original listing website, wrote an e-mail and they e-mailed back within 3 hours, now THAT"S Service!

In all my experiences with realtors over the years, Keith is the first one that I actually consider a "professional" realtor. He promptly answered his phone and emails, showed up on time, provided honest assessments of property, knows the business, and worked at a pace that was comfortable for me. He helped me buy a house, as opposed to just selling me a house. He also pointed me to a great mortgage company and provided information on local insurance and utilities; all steps that saved me time. It was great to work with someone who actually believes in working hard to satisfy customers. Thank, Keith. Less ... More

Keith took a lot of time to look at a variety of properties with me. I really needed this to help me find that balance between budget and needs! The longer we worked together, the more I learned what was important to me in the area I was looking at. Keith found the home I purchased, and if hadn't suggested it I probably wouldn't have looked at it. But he knew what I liked by then, and it all worked out great! Also, one of the nicest persons I've ever met! I recommend him highly, and if you are shopping from a distance, he's great to work with. Less ... More

I purchased a second home remotely in July 2011. Keith was superb. He had given a various selections over a few months until the right home came available. It was a short sale, but went through smoothly. He takes a true interest, listens for want you want and works to find the perfect match. As others on this site stated, he goes beyond assisting with details such as insurance, yard/ pool maintence. He has a strong integrity that builds trust through the process. I would highly recommend Keith to anyone that needs his services. Less ... More

We contacted Keith thru Zillow while searching for a condo in Kissimmee and it turned into a great experience. We were in FL on vacation and were just beginning the process of looking at properties. Shortly after writing to Keith we talked about what we were looking for and our options. He compiled a list of condos and we were on our way to our future winter home. He helped give us information on different areas around Kissimmee and Orlando, and we knew that we were working with a different type of realtor, he earned our trust very fast. To make a long story short, we found a condo that we loved and Keith took care of everything while we were back in Michigan. We choose to fly back for the closing but could have done that remotely, in part to say "Thank you" to Keith. I've already recommended him to friends who are also looking for property in FL. Keith takes great care to make sure that everything flows as smooth as possible. He truly takes care of his clients, but by the end of the day he makes you feel more like a friend, and that speaks volumes to his character. Added on 09/19/2012: Sadly, I came time to sell our condo this summer but fortunately we were also in the market for a home. One quick text msg to Keith and we were back in the real estate game and knew we were in good hands. Keith ran his "market analysis", took lots of pictures, and had our condo back on the market in no time at all. With his agressive approach and knowledge of the "trending" market, he had our listing in front of dozens of agents and hundreds of buyers, giving us constant updates as to how many people were looking at our property. In a matter of just a few wks we had an offer and Keith got us to the price we were wanting. The problem was they were from Brazil and the buyer's agent was less than helpful, making it twice as hard on Keith. He accepted the challenge and made the deal go thru, working tirelessly to ensure he protected our best interests. If you want the best agent who will work diligently in your best interest, with the knowledge and experience to navigate the real estate market in Central Florida, give Keith a call. I promise you will not be disappointed. Less ... More

Keith worked with my husband and I off and on for over a year, patiently working with us to find the perfect house. Once we did find our house, Keith was on top of everything, always keeping us informed and promptly returning our calls. We have already recommended him to a friend and will continue to do so in the future!

We visited several areas before begins to search in the internet. We saw Henderson review in Zillow web page and decide to contact him by e-mail. He was responsiveness and sent the information that we required, plus other properties available for sale. In less than one month, we found our new home. He always works in a professional manner, giving important information about the process.

My wife and I recently purchase a second home in Lakeland. Kieth made it quite an enjoyable process. He diligently persued many listings to find the home that was in our budget and the location and kind of home we were looking for. He did an excellant job handleing the inspections and paper work needed to complete the transaction. Kieth was also very helpful in setting up pool maintenance, yard maintenance, utilities, re-keying the home and handling many things we could not do due to our distance from the home. I would highly recommend Kieth as the agent of choice in the Lakeland area. He did an outstanding job. Thank you Kieth, David D. and Cheryl L. Dunham Less ... More

Keith was referred to us by our mortgage broker. Keith was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain how everything works. Keith was on the ball with every move that needed to be made. He found around 30 houses for us to look at and never rushed us or ever seemed irritated. As soon as my wife an I made a decision within hours he had the ball rolling and I was signing bid papers. I recommend Keith to anybody who needs a honest fast moving realtor with experience. He found us a 2,500 sqft house on .25 achers for $129,000. Appraisal came in at $138,000, we were the first to look through the house before it went onto "for sale sites". Less ... More

Words cannot describe how great this man is. My husband and I were from out of town and needed assistance with finding a property in Auburndale. We were extremely lucky to have Keith as our real estate agent. He met with us on a holiday weekend within an hour of notice, when 2 other agents we contacted never responded. Not only was he flexible to adjust to our schedule to show us the homes, he went above and beyond our expectations in helping us with all negotiations and sped up the closing process. He came over on his own time to make extra repairs for our home in order for us to meet our deadline of closing our home. We highly recommend Keith to anyone who needs quality real estate service.

When it came to buying our new home, Keith not only was able to negotiate a great rate, but he stayed with us through the entire mortgage process. We were new to buying and several of our concerns he was able to iron out making the whole experience enjoyable. He kept pressure on when needed and has called several times to make sure we enjoy our new home and are not having any issues.
