Tell Us Your Story

Amanda was absolutely amazing throughout this whole process of buying our first home.

We had absolutely no idea how to go about it, and she made sure to be as informative as she possibly could and was beyond patient to all of our needs and questions. So thankful for her and her help in getting us into our new home!

Vanessa Mackenzie (Buyer)

I wanted to take a moment to express our utmost appreciation and satisfaction with the exceptional real estate services you provided throughout the process of buying our first home.

Your dedication, expertise, and professionalism truly made a difference in ensuring a smooth and successful closing! Thank you John!

Saief C

Amanda is an amazing realtor.

We bought our first home through her services and she was there for us every step of the way. She always made sure we have everything we needed. She is was very professional and as a local gave us some tips about the area we where looking at. I would definitely recommend her to anybody needing her services in the area.

Gabriela Ocasio Ramos

Amanda was wonderful throughout the whole process!

She absolutely helped us find the perfect home and was extremely easy to work with! As military members, my family sought to purchase a home before we arrived in the area to make sure our household goods could be delivered to an address. Amanda made sure everything was perfect and welcomed us after our long trip across the country. She went above and beyond every step of the way!

Matthew Henricks

From the moment my husband and I met Amanda she made us feel like family!

Since we were making a cross country move, she was so helpful in going above and beyond to show us homes, even in some unconventional ways to make it convenient for us, and make sure we ultimately chose the one that was perfect! Her knowledge of the gulf coast communities and the patience in our process made our house purchase so make easier. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home and will definitely use her in the future!

Robin Ledford

Amanda was fantastic!

Everything you would want in a Real Estate Agent! We moved from out of state and ended up purchasing a home we hadn’t seen in person. Not only did she walk us through the whole process, she made our move SO much easier. Amanda has our strongest recommendation! She is professional, knowledgeable, and has a bias for action. Great experience!

Michael Walters

Amanda was awesome from day one!

I set out to look for a rental home and she found us our home! She stayed by our sides and kept close communication with us on our hunt! Have definitely recommended her to people we know! Can’t thank her enough for all her hard work!

Melanie Stevenson

My wife and I just closed on our home this past Friday, and we both insist that it would not have been possible without John.

As first time buyers, we were clueless about virtually every aspect of the process, and as such we were nervous about being taken advantage of at different stages. However, John guided us through every part, and was THE one who built the team that we used, including the inspector, lawyer, insurer, and more. We never had to worry about the quality, availability or ethics of these other folks, as they were all top notch. But by far the best thing about our experience with John was that he is an unbelievably friendly, hardworking man whose dedication to his clients extends far past the professional side. He genuinely cares about our family and what WE hoped to accomplish with this purchase. It didn't seem as much like a business relationship as it did an old friend who knows the business inside and out and is offering you his help. If you are a first time buyer who needs guidance or just want a easy, professional experience with your broker, choose John.

Brock Tellier (Buyer)

Heartfelt gratitude John for making this process of "moving" a smooth one.

From selling our home to finding our new nest, John's negotiating skills were outstanding!! His experience and expertise were noticeable the minute we met him, not to mention his warmth and kindness. Thanks again John.

Marie Dupiton (MD)

I highly recommend Amanda!

! She was so much fun to work with! We were long distance when we started house shopping and Amanda made it possible. She was attentive and knew what we were looking for. It was easy to trust Amanda, she knew the area and steered us to a beautiful quiet neighborhood. Amanda became a dear friend through our home buying process and we are so grateful for her! Our home is exactly what we were looking for!

Hallie Calvert

My family and I had the pleasure of working with John on both the selling and purchasing of our home.

Throughout the process (and it was a long one) John remained professional, sincere, and looked out for our best interests. Unlike many Realtors that we’ve crossed paths with, John has shown to be a real caring and honest individual. Anyone who’s sold and purchased a home in the same time frame knows the complexities of it; we’re so thankful to have connected with John for our transactions.

Jessica Chan

she has worked with us for a year and she finally helped us find our forever home.

she informed us on every little thing we had questions with since this was our first home. she was wonderful


Working with John Kim is a wonderful experience.

He is personable, professional and attentive. He facilitated a smooth transaction with finesse in a way that brought joy to all of us - buyers and sellers.

CM Clemente

John Kim did a phenomenal job helping us sell our home.

In two weeks, he helped us list and sell at our goal price. He was knowledgeable about the market, experienced in the process of selling and very communicative throughout, making us feel at ease and at peace. His friendliness and personal nature were a bonus! Highly recommend!

Caroline Shyr

Amanda Slay Beaudet thank you for your incredible help with this home purchase!

It really was miraculous that this worked out in our tight time frame, and you were instrumental in this success. Amanda was well prepared for my whirlwind visit to see hikes, and she eas flexible and quick to act when “the right one” popped up. All the while, she was relaxed and had a calming influence on what would have been a stressful process. She is warm, kind, smart, and she’ll see you through to closing day! I highly recommend her! My children are so thrilled about moving in, and we expect to create many joyful memories in our new home and neighborhood! ??

Allison Shwalb

Amanda has been a great real estate agent to work with.

We received orders to Gulfport while we were stationed in Japan. I started searching for homes right away. We started working with her about a year ago when we were looking for a rental house. She went to many houses and did video tours for me and took lots of pictures to send to me. Then we realized the rental market was poor there, we decided to buy. She visited many many homes for us, and even met with members of my family to look at homes since we were still in Japan. She has great communication skills and was just wonderful to work with. She helped us find our awesome home and helped deal with all kinds of obstacles that got in the way until we finally got to the closing table! She also gave recommendations for mortgage companies and insurance companies. She also gave me a lot of great information about the area. I would definitely recommend her!!!

Julie McLaury

John was wonderful to work with!

My husband and were first time home buyers and John was so informative, patient and supportive during the whole process. Excellent communication, support and partnership with both us and the sellers. On top of it all, John has made us feel so welcome and excited about our new neighborhood by sharing local information (things to do, schools, doctors, etc). Highly recommend working with John!

Lauren Rendell (Manager)

Amanda is wonderful to work with.

She is very professional and personable. She genuinely wants to make you happy and get you in a house that you will be excited about. She was always quick to respond when I had questions or wanted to look at another house. Even after the closing she stays in touch to make sure you are settling in well.

Traci Mattox

David Best (Rev. Dr.David Best )

I am incredibly grateful for John's exceptional help in purchasing my dream home.

His professionalism, expertise, and dedication were outstanding. From understanding my needs to skillfully negotiating on my behalf, he made the process seamless. I highly recommend John to anyone in need of a reliable real estate agent.

Jincheng Tang

As an active duty service member buying a home "sight-unseen" while overseas, Amanda did everything possible to make an amazing home buying experience.

From video walkthroughs with the wife and myself to following up with the property after a storm necessitated repairs, she really did so much more than anyone could expect or ask of a realtor. I honestly couldn't have asked for anything more from her. I would give my strongest recommendation for her in any home buying or selling situation

Kyle W. Henderson

Me and my husband were only 20 when we moved down to Mississippi for his first station.

We had no idea where to start for a finding a home. Amanda reached out to us and helped us find our first apartment just because she wanted to she did not make a single penny off of helping us. Fast forward 1 year later and we decided to start looking for our first home. There was no way I was going to have anyone help us in this big point in our lives other than Amanda! We did not know much about the home buying process or what the steps we needed to take were. Amanda was so helpful along the way answering any questions we had, educating us on the process and making sure we found the best home for us! I would highly Recommend Amanda to anyone who is looking to find a home! She is the best of the best and we are forever grateful to her for helping us buy our very first home!!!

Courtney Priebe

Amanda was such an amazing realtor.

She goes above and beyond for her clients. She made such a stressful situation, painless. We were buying a home in Mississippi all the way from Washington. Without her help we wouldn’t have gotten everything done so quickly, and with half as much ease.

Jodie Henderson (Home buyer)

Amanda is the real deal!

Together we slayed any obstacles that came our way. We couldn't be happier! Thank you for helping us with our forever home ❤

Adrian Vanessa

John is very hard working professional.

I would be very happy to recommend John for any project.


Very helpful and professional, answered all questions in a timely manner, and even pushed our baby stroller while we looked at each and every house to keep the baby calm.

My wife and I loved working with her and always enjoyed looking at houses with her. Anytime we asked about a house she had a walk thru set up within a day or so. She worked very hard at every loop to help us.

James Winzer (Contructionmen )

Amanda helped us with the purchase of our first home & was very helpful throughout the whole process.

She definitely went the extra mile & we would highly recommend her.


Amanda was very diligent in her work.

She updated information on a regular basis for houses available and what we should be looking for in house being military. She showed my husband around for two days and did not pressure him into making a decision until both of us were ready to commit to one. Amanda was knowledgeable in the market and what we needed to do as new buyers to have a successful closing. She was quick to answer questions at any time of the day if there was a pressing need. Plus she was patient with us when we asked several questions since it was our first time buying a home.

Jodi Henricks

Fenella was great!

Always reachable and responds quickly. She guided us patiently through our first house purchase. Will be recommending her to family and friends.

Nancy Chen

My husband and I are very grateful for the expertise and dedication of Mr John Kim who did everything in his power to get us into our new home.

Thanks for not giving up on us and for coaching us through. We would choose you again and again. Mr and Mrs Best!

Heather H Best

John was absolutely fantastic to work with.

He is a true professional in every sense. My wife and I had been looking for a house for almost two years with a different agent. Once we began working with John, he was able to navigate this ultra competitive market and get us an accepted offer within one day. John has a great understanding of the real estate market. He came prepared and helped prepare us when viewing houses. I would recommend John to anyone who is looking to buy a home.

Shabbir Karim

Amanda is an exceptional realtor!

I cannot express how easy Amanda made the house buying process for us. She explained everything in a way that made it easy for us to understand, answered all of our questions, and is 100% on her clients team. She is also very knowledgeable of the area and was kind enough to show us a few of her favorite staples around town. I think one of the things I love most about Amanda is that she has a passion for helping military families transition as smooth as possible while finding a new place to call home (though she is dedicated to all of her clients). Amanda dedicates herself to being more than just a realtor, I could not have asked for a better person to help my family and I find our new home. She truly is a blessing.

Jolene Faith

John is professional, personable and experienced and he made the sale of our house a seamless experience from beginning to end.

He is everything you would expect from a top notch realtor. Before you go anywhere else, call John!

Louis Ferretti

Amanda was very helpful and stuck with us through all of the difficult issues we had endured while trying to purchase a home in this crazy home buying time.

In the end we were finally able to purchase a house and finally have a place to call home. Thank Amanda for all of your help.

Lisa Lopez

Anytime you buy a home you hope that the realtor you decide to go with has your personal interest in mind.

That's the experience I received when I worked with Amanda. Transitioning from another state I had a lot of questions and concerns about which neighborhood was best suited for my family and our needs and she was able to answer all my questions and provide me ease throughout the whole entire process. I really appreciate a realtor who I can trust. I will definitely be using Amanda again. I highly recommend her and Next Home Realty. Thanks Amanda for making this process easy for us!

Elizabeth C. Digby

Amanda was an excellent agent.

She provided a great deal of information that enabled us to sell our home in less than 5 days. Thank you Amanda.

Amanda has been absolutely fantastic through the entire process with my wife, son, and myself.

She has been fully attentive to our desires and requirements for our home, and stood fast by our side the entire time. Upon locating our forever home, she was by our side, guiding us, and helping to close the deal!! We cannot thank her or her company enough!! Amanda, thank you so very much!!

Jude Stankov (General Manager)

John Kim was hands down a pleasure to work with.

Extremely professional and knowledgable yet very warm and friendly. He patiently walked me and my wife through every step of looking for a house, and we felt very supported all the way through closing and beyond. Home buying could be a very daunting, overwhelming process but John helped us through it all splendidly. We are very thankful for John and we highly recommend him to anyone looking for a property!

Kevin Guy (Communications Installer)

I highly recommend John as his level of service and professionalism is the best I’ve encountered.

He has always returned my calls quickly, and was a steady presence in help communicating with all parties involved, whenever there are issues and questions.

Henry Tao

Amanda did a great job under unusual circumstances!

Erin Warren

Amanda was a great agent.

She took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for in a new home before we even arrived in the area. Once we arrived she listened to our feedback on houses that we saw and helped find the needle in the haystack that has become a great home. She has a great understanding of the rigors that military homebuyers face and provided exceptional service in making a smart, safe home buying experience.

jared knogge

Amanda was happily flexible and very patient with my wife and me as we deviated from our list to search up this street and down that street chasing for sale signs.

She was able to put together a “for rent” to “for sale” deal in a matter of hours and got us in the house we wanted. Amanda also helped us avoid further travel by meeting the inspector at the house after we had to head back out of town. I can surely say that we couldn’t have done it without her.

Jason Armstrong

Amanda was awesome to work with, it was a long process but she was there on top of it all from start to finish.

She stayed in touch with my wife through the whole deal until we closed. We highly recommend her. She done a fabulous job.

Michael Benton (Automotive Industry)

Amanda was absolutely wonderful to work with.

She was always responsive, attentive to details and just all around kind to us. We are a military family living overseas who didn't have the opportunity to house hunt in person. She has been our eyes and ears on this and has been wonderful. Even after the sale of the house was complete, she has continued to help us and be there. We are 100% satisfied!!! Lucky to have had her for all of this, and would recommend her to anyone!

Robin Stewart (Home buyer)

Awesome agent who listens to your needs and wants and works tirelessly to find you your next home.

Amazing knowledge of the home buying process who offers sound recommendations and assistance.

Jay Ledford

It was absolutely a pleasure working with Amanda.

She is very knowledgeable while providing excellent service. She went above and beyond to help us find our home. Step by step she will be there with you to help you find your home. We highly recommend Amanda.

Steven Ram (Home Buyer)

John was a wonderful guide in helping me negotiate the crazy NYC real estate market in search of a home that would be suitable for our multi-generational family.

He was patient, knowledgeable, kind, and took time to understand our needs without pressurizing us to buy. When we realized we would not find what we needed in NYC but needed to move to upstate NY, he helped us sell our NYC home and coordinate the purchase of our new home in Rochester, NY with our Rochester real estate agent. John became a friend, guide and source of steady support and encouragement. Without him, the whole process of selling and moving our parents to Rochester would have been much more difficult. I would recommend John and his real estate team without reservations.

Seema Khaneja (Physician )

Fennella was a professional and was able help us each step of the way in our purchase of our home.

I would highly recommend her to a friend to assist in either buy/sell of home.

John Lin

Amanda recently helped us sell our home.

She was so knowledgeable and helpful, she made the entire process absolutely seamless! We are so thankful for all the time and effort she put into our home and our family. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience or realtor!

Alyssa Day

Amanda is a fantastic realtor!

We are so glad to have found her. She made the process of buying a house from overseas a lot smoother. She’s extremely knowledgeable and goes above and beyond. We couldn’t have had a better first time home owner’s experience! So grateful to have had such an exceptional human being along the way. We highly recommend her to anyone who’s looking for a house to call home.
