"Ten years ago I quit my job and opened a very successful business. It was, without question, the best decision I've ever made. Ten months ago I goggled "Key West Realtor" and decided to call Rudy Molinet. It was, without question, the second best decision I've ever made. There is no question in my mind that without Rudy Molinet as my Realtor I would have not closed on my Key West home. The house had to go thru both a short-sale and then a foreclosure before we could get to the closing table. Dealing with this home must have been like long division for most people. Rudy knew all the right people to talk to. He made all the right decisions along the way and most importantly gained my trust. I've always believed that to be successful in business you need to surround yourself with smart people. I'm guessing that many people looking to buy expensive Key West real estate have been pretty successful in their lives. Most of those people are probably very smart. The smart thing to do when looking for a home in Key West is to listen to Rudy. He takes the time to understand what your needs are and won't quit until he finds the perfect home for you.
My advice is, after you have been successful and smart making your money to buy a home in paradise, continue to be smart and hire Rudy to find you the perfect home. In my opinion, there is no Realtors in all of Key West with more knowledge or a better work ethic than Rudy Molinet and Harry Hoehn of Marquis Properties Realty. Most important to me is that through this entire process, Rudy has truly become a good friend. He is the hardest working most ethical person I've met in quite some time. The dictionary defines superlative as: "Of the highest kind, quality or order surpassing all else or others supreme". I define it as Rudy Molinet. As a Realtor, as a business owner, as a man and as a friend, he is of the highest kind, quality and order supreme."

"There are no other realtors in the world who are as energetic, helpful, personable and professional as Rudy and Harry. We have never met -- or heard of -- any realtors who do what they do, which is EVERYTHING!!! They are intuitive, (and spot-on!), honest, and straightforward. and somehow they manage to make both the buyer and seller happy! We were thrilled to work with them, thrilled to have found our dream cottage with them, and thrilled to be their new neighbors and friends! It doesn't get much better than that."

"Rudy and Harry are an amazing team! My fiancé and I were new to the home buying experience, and with Marquis Property Reality, it was as simple as picking out a toothbrush! Rudy was considerate of our needs and wants in finding the perfect home. Both communicated with us regularly, even when business was not required, just to touch base. From the first day of looking at properties to closing I felt that my best interests came before all other concerns. And I must mention Rudy and Harry have an amazing ability to recommend other fantastic businesses in the area, for all of your needs. If you are looking for a realtor that you can trust, who cares about the client and their future and is available at all hours of the day/night (or all locations of the planet) you NEED Rudy and Harry! I know my future husband and I are in for many happy years in our new property! Thanks for making the process easy and as stress free as such an investment can be!"

"Rudy and Harry of Marquis Properties are truly "The Hardest Working Men in Real Estate"! They took our very challenging situation and guided us every step of the way until we finally became the owners of our Key West dream home. Both Rudy and Harry were a pleasure to work with. They were very knowledgeable and professional in every phase of the process and never gave up on making it happen for us. Rudy definitely deserves the title of Key West Realtor of the Year. We would highly recommend Rudy and Harry to anyone either buying of selling a home in Key West."

"Dear Rudy and Harry:
This was not our first time at the rodeo (of buying and selling houses)-but it was by far the best! You both exhibited super professionalism in all aspects of the transaction. You appreciated our difficulty in deciding to part with a beloved conch house of 26 years ownership and made the listing, marketing and closing painless. If our plans present us an opportunity to return to Key West, Marquis Properties Realty will be our first stop."
— Thanks again,
Bill McLin and Sam McKeon

"My wife and I have bought and sold 16 homes during our 40 year marriage and interacted with close to 30 Real Estate agents. Our experience buying a second home in Key West, with Rudy and Harry, was by far the best experience we have had. Every detail of the transaction was handled by them before we had a chance to worry about it. They managed our expectations and facilitated our transition from Connecticut Yankees into Conch neophytes.They are true professionals that I would recommend to anyone!"

"Prior Key West real estate transactions had left us skeptical of the professionalism of area agents. We were referred to Rudy by our neighbors, and what a difference! Rudy managed a complex sale/purchase for us with extreme care. He is exceedingly reliable, communicates immediately and really knows how to get things done on a deadline and who can do it. We strongly recommend Rudy Molinet of Marquis Properties Realty and would definitely use him again."

"Thanks so much for all your help in the purchase of our Key West home. It's been a long haul but you've been so helpful and terrific throughout. It really would not have happened without you and we so appreciate that you stuck with us for so long. We're very grateful and will hope to see you in Key West!"

"We just closed on our dream home in Old Town Key West and could not have done it without Rudy Molinet and Harry Hoehn of Marquis Properties Realty! After 3 disappointments in this market I was ready to give up and settle for a house less than I wanted. However Rudy (who knew exactly what we wanted) called me recently early one morning about a brand new listing and said I had to see it that day! The house was exactly what we wanted and we made an offer that same day! We just closed and are moving in this week. We could not have done it without Rudy and Harrys' expertise and patience... THANKS again!"
— Lisa and Mike Benfield
New owners of our wonderful Old Town home
Richard Manley and I wish to thank you and Harry for the incredible job you did marketing 409 William Street. Though such a rapid sale might look lucky to an outsider, we know that it was the result of taking the time to build a relationship with buyers who were patiently waiting for the right home. You are rightly focused on the details, and know that the real work begins with the sales contract. Your professionalism has made this transaction as smooth as any I have ever participated in. Thanks again."
— With warm regards,
"If you are looking for the most informed and professional real estate agents in Key West who also have integrity, honesty and will successfully guide you through every aspect of your real estate decisions, then Rudy Molinet and Harry Hoehn of Marquis Properties are the guys for you. The recent purchase of my home was flawless from the signing of the purchase contract to the closing table. In a world where service is a hard commodity to come by, Rudy and Harry deliver and then some. Simply put, they are the best!"

"Rudy and Harry are a seller's "dream team". From the first phone call to the last signature, they made the entire process of selling our Key West condo a breeze. As true obsessives, we could not have chosen better. Every single question, no matter how silly or insignificant, was responded to promptly and with the greatest thoughtfulness. No detail of the sale happened without their careful over site. Rudy and Harry balanced a friendly, warm approach with the utmost professionalism. We always knew that our interests came first and that our property was in the best of hands."
— Jill and Ana,
"Rudy Molinet is without question the best realtor we have ever worked with. He is respectful of our time. Rudy only showed us the houses that met our needs. We had worked with another realtor before who just drove us around in circles. Rudy listened to what we said, followed up with hard work and dedication to find us our dream home in Key West. We had never worked with a Buyer's Agent before and after this experience we will never buy another Key West home without Rudy Molinet as our Buyer's agent."
— John Riley and Jose Rodriguez
"When we first started working with Rudy, he asked us several insightful questions about what we were looking for in a "dream home." The next day, we looked at several properties that fit our criteria and we were off and running! He is amazingly well-connected, not only in Key West, but around the country. He works with people who are the best in their field (as he is) and each person he recommended came through beyond our expectations. Every aspect of the sale was a win/win for everyone involved and it was transacted with integrity and honesty with everyone's best interests in mind. We got our dream home and found our dream realtor."

"I have dealt with many real estate brokers in my time but Rudy is definitely the most knowledgeable and professional I have dealt with. In addition, he brings an enthusiasm to find and take advantage of every opportunity to bring the transaction to a successful conclusion. Bottom line - If you want to successfully buy or sell your property, go to Marquis Properties."
— Marty & Eileen Ford
"Rudy and Harry,
I still have trouble believing that my Truman Annex condo has sold so quickly. My last three or four years in Key West were witness to the fact that condos stayed on the market for years before finally selling or being taken off the market. I think our success is due in large part to your practice of realistic pricing in the beginning. I agree wholeheartedly with you and congratulate you on the success of your methods. Of course, I take some credit too for having the foresight to hire you in the first place! Just kidding of course, but I'm serious in saying that I am very pleased with the results of our working together. Keep up the great work!"

"Dear Rudy and Harry
I would like to thank you both for your assistance in selling my
house at 615R Grinnell Street, Key West. I am uniquely qualified to
assess your performance as I handled in excess of 6000 real estate
closings in my 25 year career as a Real Estate attorney in the lower
Florida Keys. I can honestly say that your performance and competence
level was unsurpassed. In this most difficult market you conducted over
50 showings of the property without a hitch or problem. Your
professionalism and enthusiasm was remarkable. After contract you kept
me up to speed daily on the progress of the transaction. Your level of
knowledge of the real estate contract was right on and I never had to
take issue with you.
In sum, I would recommend your firm as the best that I have ever
worked with and you can be sure I will be calling you for my next
transaction, whether a sale or a purchase. Thank you again for you
— My best regards to both of you,
Jeffrey B. Meyer
"In the midst of all the anxiety associated with the purchase of my new office , I must tell you how much I appreciate all the care and attention you have given. You have gone way above the call of duty here. No other Broker would have had the competence or made the effort to protect my interests as you have. I have extolled your virtues and praises to everyone, and will continue to do so forever more!"

Thanks a million for the great job you did in selling our Shipyard condo. My wife and I were originally skeptical about the possibility of selling in this market, but you did it.
You guided us every step of the way, from pricing to proper appearance. You even arranged various repairs to put the finishing touches on our home (at better prices than I ever got, I might add with a bit of envy).
Best of all, the entire process happened while we were at home in New York. Everything was quick, easy and seamless, involving no more than e-mail, phone calls, a few faxes, a Fedex, and our signatures on the important documents.
Please feel free to share our enthusiasm with any your prospective buyers and sellers. Quality and service like this should be experienced by everyone."
— Dave and Marjorie Monheit
"We were extremely pleased with the service of Marquis Properties Realty. Rudy Molinet made it so much fun to look at properties, and getting to know him (and Harry) convinced us even more what a great place Key West would be to live. Rudy helped us find a fabulous condo in a restored historic house in Old Town, and we love the prospect of being here year-round. We can't praise Rudy Molinet and his staff highly enough. No detail was overlooked in all the transactions--making the purchase a breeze for us out of towners. We recommend Marquis Properties Realty to our family and friends...and anyone else we know who's thinking of buying or selling real estate in Key West!
— Cathy & Jim Stentzel
"You and your staff presented the utmost in professionalism in our recent real estate transaction. Your attention to detail was without comparison. The fact that we communicated almost daily from the signing of the offer, to the closing was perfect. Having more than 100 real estate transactions in the last five years, I consider myself an expert with respect to the buying and selling of real estate, and the importance of a great real estate professional. You and your staff have no equal as far as Mimi and I are concerned. Thank you, and we look forward to using your services in the future."
— Terry and Mimi Tincher
"Last year, we decided to buy a new home for us in Key West and as a result needed to sell our then current home . This was a decision we made during the off-season . Rudy Molinet of Marquis Properties handled both transactions for us. Not only did he get the deal done at a good value to us; but he was there to address any problems along the way. By the end of the process Diane would say that she felt like Rudy was more like a brother than a broker. He was extremely professional and personal."
— Kevin and Diane Breen
"We want to take a few minutes to revisit the events of our recent business relationship. I recall our first meeting. Pat and I spent several minutes talking about the dissatisfaction we had with the performance of our previous Realtor. Our discontent was primarily related to selling strategy, marketing, and communication. At that point you stepped up, and made promises which addressed each of our concerns, and went on from there to outline services that we were not aware existed. Three weeks later we accepted, an offer from a pre-approved buyer. At that point you, and your right hand man Harry, stepped in, and shepherded us from that point through closing. It seemed as if we talked daily on the progress being made, and the steps to be taken next. You and Harry picked up the burden of every detail that you could possibly complete, and kept us up to date on our to do list. Just the other day we were again reminded of your attention to detail, and follow through, when as " promised " we received a package of our mail which you forwarded for us. Again thanks to both Harry, and yourself for the great service that you provided."
— Ron & Pat Calareso
"We recently purchased a home in the Truman Annex. From our previous experiences, we know that buying a property can be a stressful, harrowing experience fraught with mishaps, miscommunications, and delays.
However, we were pleasantly surprised with the unparalleled service we received from our realtor, Rudy Molinet of Marquis Properties. Mr. Molinet's meticulous attention to detail, vast real estate knowledge, and business acumen proved to be the difference in our purchase. Mr. Molinet redefines what a real estate agent needs to be in the current fast-paced market. He is the complete package: realtor, businessman and friend. He is a full- service broker, who without a doubt, is head and shoulders above the rest. Marquis Properties is the new wave of real estate agencies. We highly recommend Mr. Molinet to any and all seeking to buy or sell a property in Key West."

THANK YOU!!! I have been planning a move to Key West for about 6 years now... I made a pit stop in Fort Myers for the past 3 years. One thing I could never find was a website that really tells REAL info about LIVING on Key West. I love your site. I know it's a realtor's site, but you would not know unless that is why you went to it. I was searching for a site with info minus all the sales pitch. I am making my move in a few months and probably will not be able to look to buy a home for a year or so, but I WILL remember you and definitely look you up. If you have a mailing list, please include my e-mail."
— Thanks again,

"Rudy, you are the finest real estate professional that Bob and I have ever worked with. No doubt we are light-weights in the world of real estate, but over the years we have restored several early 19thc homes, one 1760 home, a house built in the 80's, a 17 room bed & breakfast, a house on a mountain in New Hampshire, 2 houseboats and a little house in KW and never have we met someone who says what they mean, does what they say and doesn't drop you like a hot potatoe (even the light-weights like us!). You deserve to be successful! We consider you a friend and an honorable member of the KW community."
