Vacation Rentals of the Florida Keys Team

All About Vacation Rentals of the Florida Keys!

Kristen Brenner, Broker-Owner

Kristen Brenner has been handling Vacation Rentals since she first started her Real Estate Career in 1987.  
My mom started me in the rental division when I was in high school.  Nothing like starting from the ground up.  I cleaned the rental homes for the company on weekends for extra money.   My mom always would give me the "white glove" test, to be sure I got the house as clean as possible.  I remember the feeling when she would find something I missed, and I would get angry with myself, but then it became a piece of cake when I knew what was expected of me. 

My first job in Real Estate was taking over the rental department at Brenner Realty, 1987, and managing about 20 properties.
I managed the cleaning staff and the check in's and booking of the properties we managed.  We had a manually written calendar and I used typewriters back then, to keep track of the bookings.  

The rental department has grown and become more efficient now, with software and websites that drive people to our rental homes.  Quality homes and great reviews are what we are all about.  Personalization is also key.  We treat our guests and owners with real-time answers to questions that are asked of us.  Our response rates are incredibly fast compared to other agencies because we care.  
We have 5 people in our office to help you with your vacation. If someone does not know the answer then we will get you one in a timely and professional manner. 

We are like a family at Vacation Rentals of the Florida Keys.  We hope you will join our family and have the best experience with our qualified team. Together we have 40 years of vacation rental experience. Let us put that knowledge and care to work for you.
