“Once my wife and I decided we wanted to seriously consider owning a home in Key West, we needed to find a realtor. We didn’t have close friends in the area for a referral so we had to rely on Internet research to find a quality company. Royal Palms’ name kept popping up in our searches and we decided to give them a try. Even though it took 4 or 5 separate visits over 3 years for us to commit to a property, Scott Forman stuck with us; we recently purchased a phenomenal home in the southwest area of the island. After the closing, Scott and Sara spent the better part of a day with us showing us where to shop, helping set up our phone, internet, utilities, and teaching us about all the things we needed to know to fit right in in Key West. Great Folks!”

Jay & Marci Alosa

“Great working with Royal Palms! They really know the market and went all out in representing us in our purchase. Everything was so easy. Their follow up is incredible! They quickly became friends. Thanks for everything! They are the “go to” team when considering real estate in Key West!”

John Wooton

“Our home buying process was very complex, to say the least. Sara and Scott were exceptionally patient throughout and advocated for us when it was most needed. Sara’s cheerleading got us through the toughest times. Without the energetic support of Royal Palms, our purchase may never have come to fruition. We are so grateful.”

Jeff & Kathy Smith and Michael & Rebecca Zehr

“Royal Palms Realty went above and beyond of what we were expecting when buying our first home in Key West. We had limited time in Key West, even with the threat of impending hurricane, and Scott Forman arranged appointments to make sure we were able to see everything in a short period of time. Not only did we find the house of of dreams, Scott and his associate, Sara, assisted with everything from inspections to the closing. We would definitely recommend Royal Palms Realty for buying or selling your home.”

Maureen Drescher

“Scott and Sara did an excellent job finding the home we were looking for.  They took the time to understand what we wanted and gave us peace of mind buying our southern home.  Their knowledge of the area has proven most valuable and most truthful.  They assisted us in finding the right people to maintain the home.  I would recommend them highly.”

Paul Drescher

“Definitely you are the BEST Realtors in Key West!!!! We were so pleased to work with you and Sara. The whole process was easy and very professional. Plus you were right on target with the price!”

“If you are looking to buy or sell a home in the most desirable old town section of Key West, Scott Forman and his Royal Palms team are the specialists. They have consistently delivered for me on both the buy and sell side. Scott’s integrity and his and the team’s attention to detail have earned him the respect of not just his clients but that of other brokers as well. I trust Scott completely to focus on my best interest and he has never let me down.”

Jim Wherty

“You said you would sell our house quickly and at a reasonable price and you did exactly what you said you would do. It was truly a pleasure working with you and Sara, and your helpfulness throughout a stressful time for us was greatly appreciated. In retrospect, our whole move seemed to happen in a bit of a rush, so it was wonderful to be able to rely upon your expertise and calm. Please feel free to use us as examples of very satisfied clients of Royal Palms Realty.”

“My wife and I had the greatest pleasure purchasing our dream retirement home at 805 Virginia Street, Key West, with the highest degree of professionalism, courtesy and assistance that we have ever seen from a realtor in our lives! Scott and Sara made this one of the quickest and easiest purchases we have ever had. Thank You So Much Scott and Sara for all your countless hours of help!”

“We met Scott in 2008 when we were looking for our retirement home in Key West while living in Oklahoma. We were immediately impressed with his calm demeanor and extensive knowledge of the real estate industry and the Key West market. He walked us through the process of short sale transactions and then eventually helped us find and close on the perfect property in Old Town. Scott was always available when we we needed him, was very patient with our numerous requests for more information or photographs and was a lifesaver when it came to finding a reliable mortgage broker. (Jorge Rosabal) We would heartily recommend him to anyone who is looking for a home in the Keys.”

Owen Killian & Kevin Davis

“With the help of Scott Forman I was able to purchased my first home in America in over 20 years. Having not lived in America for a while and wanting to be absolutely sure of my home purchase choice I kept asking him question after question about the processes involved and about the houses we looked at. Each and every time he patiently answered my questions and kept explaining the home buying process every step of the way. I leaned heavily on Scott and trusted him to guide me along in the home buying process. Along the way I found Scott to be forthright, honest, knowledgeable of the area and the home buying processes, and a man of his word.

I am so glad I “found” Scott and would encourage anyone who is looking to purchase a house in Key West or the Lower Keys to work with him. He will help you find the home of your dreams as he did with me.”

Lee Rosenbaum

“I have worked with Scott since the summer of 2007. He has helped me locate, purchase and sell two properties in the Florida Keys. He has proven himself to be a very reliable, honest and professional real estate agent. I fully intend to use his services again in the future. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate professional.”

“I have closed many transactions with Scott over the years and have always been very impressed with how he treats his customers. Scott is a full service realtor and works continuously toward a smooth closing. Scott is not deterred by the challenges in this difficult market and is skilled in negotiating complicated short sale transactions. I really enjoy working with Scott and would recommend him to my closest friends and family.”

“As Association Manager and a member of the Key West by the Sea family for fifteen years, I understand the importance of a Realtor who can relate to his clients on every level. Whether buying or selling, your Realtor must work for you and take the time to listen to your needs. Scott Forman is that Realtor. He demonstrates professionalism in every aspect and can empathize with his clients throughout the ever-changing housing market. Scott’s dedication to his clients is his foremost concern and his knowledge of the national real estate market was evident during our recent house hunting experience in North Carolina. His advice to us during the most critical times in the buying process relieved many of the worries that come with purchasing a home and saved us time, money, and grief. I adamantly recommend Scott Forman to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home!”

“Since 2007 Scott has represented me in 4 real estate transactions. He found me a “once in a bi-decade” deal at a great price. Scott is always informed and attentive, and gives outstanding effort in his client’s behalf. He is my Keys Realtor for life.”

Al Romano

“I had been actively pursuing my retirement dream home in Key West, Florida for almost ten years and I had gone through two other Key West real estate agents. I was very lucky to find Scott Forman. “Scott is the best real estate agent” that I have ever worked with, including Key West and other markets in which I have purchased homes. Scott has a vast knowledge of the Key West, Florida real estate market. Scott is patient, responsive and honest and not afraid to tell his clients about the good and the bad aspects of a given property. And, if he doesn’t know certain aspects about a property of interest to his client(s), he will find out the appropriate information, so his client(s) can make informed decisions about a given real estate transaction. In addition, Scott has general business acumen and common sense. To top it all off, Scott has assembled a team of lending experts, inspection experts and closing experts who can provide total satisfaction in efficiently closing a given real estate transaction. I am a proud owner of my retirement dream home in Key West, Florida, thanks to Scott Forman.”

“Scott Forman is a Rare Find – Knowledgeable, Responsive, Helpful & Honest! We are seasoned investors in the Northern Virginia real estate market, but when it came to purchasing a 2nd home for ourselves in the Paradise of the Florida Keys we needed an expert on the area. Scott exceeded our every expectation throughout all phases of the purchase, and we feel so fortunate to have found him. Thanks again, Scott – its getting cold up here, so save some sunshine for us – we’re heading south soon!”

“This was not our first time buying a place in Key West, but it was our first time working with the team of Scott, Rudy and Harry. These three worked in perfect harmony from beginning to end. As with most real estate transactions, timing is everything. When it came to this particular home, I was worried that the timing would become problematic. Rudy and Harry were actually on vacation in the south of France when we first visited the property. That’s worth repeating…THE SOUTH OF FRANCE!! Scott met us onsite and was well educated on the property for our initial visit. After that point, Rudy was able to work with us as buyers and had Scott handling things that needed to be done for the purchase in Key West. The entire process was flawless. Rudy and Harry, in the south of France, worked with Scott in Key West, and they both kept in perfect contact with us, the buyers, in Indiana. Different time zones, different countries, all working together in perfect harmony. I could go on and on about how great these guys are but I feel like that says it all. Set yourself up for success and call this amazing team when you are buying or selling your place in paradise!”
