When Marcy and Lori sold me my home in April, 2009, I was impressed by their professionalism. I subsequently bought an investment property with their representation a few years later. They are amazing shoppers and found me exactly what I was looking for. They have a wealth of wonderful resources including inspectors, insurance agents, and attorneys. When I decided to move out of Miami, I called them immediately. They advised me well with the pricing of my home and created ads showcasing my home in the most favorable way. They did an excellent job and got me above my asking price which broke area records! In all my dealings with them, large and small, I felt as if I was their most important client. I felt well taken care of. I highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling their home. In addition they have become dear friends whom I respect for their commitment to the community and their solid work ethic.


24/7 dynamic duo of real estate Marcy and Lori successfully sold my waterfront property in 2007- at a time the market was plummeting and contracts were falling apart. When I was ready to purchase a home this year, of course I went back to the two sisters. This week they made me the happy owner of a fantastic home in Morningside that was in short sale. Without their knowledge of the market, their laser-like commitment to the transaction, and adept person to person skills, neither my sale nor purchase would have come to fruition. Lori and Marcy are tops in the business.


As an Attorneys’ Title Fund Services, LLC President’s Circle Member, the Law Office of Kellermann Varela PL has the opportunity to work with hundreds of real estate agents from year to year, and Lori and Marcy squarely rank in the top-tier of such agents. Lori and Marcy’s collective work ethic, knowledge of the marketplace, negotiating skills and follow-through provide their clientele with a competitive advantage in all phases of a transaction, including site selection and analysis, contract negotiation, due diligence and closing related matters. I would highly recommend them, as I know whomever I refer to them will be in extremely capable and dependable hands.


Marcy Kaplan and Lori Brandt were referred to me by a close friend who raved about them. Until that point I had worked with several rather well known Miami real estate agents. I decided to give the ladies a try and they have been my realtors ever since. I can honestly say that they are my favorite realtors of all time! I am the tour manager for The Who, Rolling Stones, Billy Idol, Elton John, Led Zeppelin, and other high profile bands. I’m frequently under tremendous pressure or out of town and unreachable. Marcy and Lori have always been flexible, understanding and able to work around my crazy schedule. They have effectively sold, purchased and leased several properties on my behalf. I trust them to handle all of my Miami real estate dealings with great care and they have always done a brilliant job. They are very caring, professional, and responsible. I feel so fortunate to have found them. I would highly recommend Marcy and Lori to my clients and friends without any hesitation.


Marcy Kaplan and Lori Brandt have been my preferred realtors when purchasing real estate in the Upper Eastside. In the past year I have purchased several properties through them, including what will be my primary residence. They are great listeners and understood my needs and wants. I am very busy and love that they are selective in their showings. Marcy and Lori are hunters and always seem to find the best properties both on and off-market. They are professional and excellent negotiators. Most importantly, they are very honest and ethical. Since opening the Vagabond and owning several properties in the area, I am passionate about the growth of our neighborhood. I especially value working with area experts who focus exclusively on the Upper Eastside. They have longstanding relationships with other area agents and work well with everyone. They seem to always have the “inside scoop” which can be invaluable to a buyer. My closest friends and family have been happy with their services. Whether you are buying or selling, I highly recommend them to you.


I knew your girls were good but you surpassed even my high expectations. Never did I imagine getting full price for my home within 2 weeks of listing it. We heard so many stories of what an arduous process selling can be. After living in our house for nearly 30 years, you were sensitive to our emotional and financial needs. We appreciate that you never pressured us and when we were ready you created an individualized plan for selling our house. You made a difficult process seem easy! Thanks a million times over!


Thank you so much! You’re a great team! I could not be happier with your performance. Your marketing plan paid off. I am now able to make a great new start in Cherokee, N.C. Thank you again!


We recently sold our Palm Grove home with the Gimme Shelter duo. Our house was not the most impressive in their portfolio, but we always felt like their top priority. Listing and selling our home was a complete success thanks to Lori and Marcy’s professionalism, commitment, and guidance. They expertly navigated various complexities and challenges, and made the process an all around positive experience. We highly recommend Gimme Shelter! – James T. and Lauren H.
