Working with Amy was great. She is knowledgeable, patient, and caring. She had our best interest at heart at all times. I would happily work with her again. I highly recommend.
Margaret Empsall found our dream home! My husband and I had a list of must-haves and wants for our first home, Margaret was attentive and passionate to find “our” home! She is responsive and sent us many options to choose from, all within or under our budget. She offered great advice and was very knowledgeable about the areas. She is patient and professional. Overall great experience!

Bought a Condo home in 2018 in Highland Beach, FL.
Working with Amy was one of the most wonderful experiences I've had in Real Estate. As a Realtor in another state for the last 15 years, I've seen the good, the bad and the ugly. Our recent purchase in Highland Beach, Florida , takes top honor.
Our situation was a bit complex with multiple parties, More
John O'Grady Realty is an excellent company, consisting of the upmost professional realtors in the industry. They handle every aspect of the transaction as if it were their own, no matter how difficult or challenging. I have personally worked with June, Peggy, Scott, Amy, and Donna and I have nothing but great respect for each and every one of them.
I bought my home this past November from Donna Mincuzzi, who was wonderful in helping to navigate all forserable issues, since moving permanently to Florida. I would highly recommend her.
Sold a Apartment home in 2016 in Highland Beach, FL.
Amy helped us sell our condo on the beach : It has been on the market for quite a few months when Amy and Debbie came to our help and we were finally able to get our price and sell quickly. The process was easy, and Amy and Debbie invested a lot of time with us to make sure everything was perfect. More

Scott is a great realtor! He is not only renting my house for me but he was my tenant. A great guy and a great family. Super genuine person which is hard to come by these days.
I owned three companies. Sold all three at a great profit. If I knew Margaret Empsall
in 2000 I would not have sold and would have asked Margaret to join my team.
Margaret is the best realtor I have seen in South Florida. If you want to buy or sell
Ms Empsall is the person to guide you. I am the President of the Villa Costa Condo.
Association many units have been sold here, Margaret by far is the winner.I would not hesitate to use in any transaction
My agent Amy went way out of her to find me the perfect home, even when the VA mortgage i had picked kept screwing up the mortgage , Amy had everything go through . & believe me she saved the day.
Margaret is an excellent real estate agent. She is very knowledgeable about her local market, friendly and great to work with. Her professionalism is what makes her better than the rest. She is always prepared and ready to help with any issues that arise
I have worked with the team at O'Grady Realty on multiple deals over the past few years. They communicate well, are friendly and easy to work with. But perhaps their biggest attribute is competence, which is something I cannot say about many of their peers. Highly recommended!
Margaret is the best real estate agent ever!! Margaret takes the time to show you properties and is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market!!! Margaret is also a very lovely person!!! Barbara Hillman
Words do not do justice to describe our experience with Margaret in searching for our home. Margaret is a professional whose main goal is to make sure her clients are happy and completely satisfied and comfortable with their decision in purchasing the home. She always listened carefully to our needs and desires and translated that in determining what type of home we were looking for. She knew what we wanted even before we put it into words.
Her patience, determination and commitment were the only reasons she was willing to work with us 3 1/2 years until the perfect home"and came into the market at the right price. Since the very first day, we felt that Margaret was not only our realtor agent, but also a trusted childhood friend. She always offered sound advice based on her knowledge and experience in the real estate market.
We wish anyone looking for a home could experience having Margaret as their realtor
Amy Blake has been wonderful to work with on every level! From her professionalism to her knowledge to her patients -- through the years until we found the perfect place! All so much appreciated.
I highly recommend Margaret Empsall. I've know many good realtors but Margaret is the best one I've had the pleasure to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable with the Boca Raton, DelRay Beach and Highland Beach, Florida markets.
She promptly and efficiently help us sell our property at a fair market price, managed the transaction seamlessly.
She also helped us find a perfect new home.
I would not hesitate to recommend Margaret Empsall to anyone.
Thank you, Stuart M
Jaclynn Johnston reviewed Debbie Keller, Realtor — 5 star
I'd like to thank Debbie Keller for her attention to detail and for her assistance in making my recent home purchase one of the easiest I've experienced. If you're in need of a realtor, I highly recommend Debbie from O'Grady Realty.
"Working with Amy was one of the most wonderful experiences I've had in Real Estate. As a Realtor in another state for the last 15 years, I've seen the good, the bad and the ugly. Our recent purchase in Highland Beach, Florida , takes top honor. Our situation was a bit complex with multiple parties, all out of town, a tight closing schedule, and limited knowledge of the area and the buying process in Florida. Amy's professionalism, patience, guidance and unparallel real estate expertise made this experience a pleasure. Personally, I cannot imagine working with anyone else that will be as selfless, sincere, patient, and knowledgeable. As a Realtors it is an honor to recommend such outstanding member of my profession."
I have been doing business with O’Grady real estate and Scott Porter for over 10 years. They have always been most professional and awesome to deal with. Working with them is like working with family they are the best!
I have had a number of apartments in the Highland Beach Area. I have dealt with a couple of real estate agencies. I have to tell all of Facebook that the best real estate in HIghland Beach is O'Gradys located at the Delray Sands Hotel on Ocean Blvd right in the center of Highland Beach. They are extremely knowledgeable about this fantastic beachfront area. In addition, I must tell you about one of their employees. His name is Scott Porter. Scott is the best around. He puts himself out more than anyone I have ever met. When you go out looking at properties with Scott he takes your patronage so special and becomes part of the family. He will only do the best for you whether your buying or selling. As I said, I have had the privilege to have had Scott Porter do both for me and I highly recommend him to everyone. If anyone has any questions, please reach out to me and I will be glad to have a lengthy conversation with you about Highland Beach, O'Grady's Real Estate and Scott Porter. It is with my greatest pleasure to put this on Facebook for everyone to see. Thanks to you and everything you do for your clients Scott !! Linda Donnelly
Being new to the area, Scott took his time to show my family and I around, was very knowledgable about the schools and neighborhoods in the area. If we do decide to move again Scott will be the first realtor we contact. Thanks again Scott
I loved working with Debbie..she was on top of the whole process from beginning through closing...she addressed possible problems as soon as she saw them, went out of her way to assure a smooth closing and was caring, warm and extremely competent and professional.
I met Debbie Keller via my brother. She is a true professional - knowledgeable, pleasant, thorough, organized and, equally important, easy to work with. After our first few discussions to determine the type and location for my new home, she basically showed me places that were essentially aligned with my search criteria. She thoroughly gathered all of the facts regarding each home, created a personalized folder for me with their fact sheets and took the time to recognize and explain to me the pros and cons for each property. I purchased a home with her without the stress that generally comes with huying a property. She was with me through all facets of the buying and closing phases. My brother and I already recommended her to friends and family members that are looking to come to Southeast Florida.
Donna was very experienced, courteous, and professional. She rented my property very quickly. I
am happy I called her and I would definitely use her again and refer her to anyone I know.
Donna was great to work with, and did a terrific job. Since I don't live in the area, I relied on her help
throughout the process, which worked out wonderfully, I couldn't have done it all without her! I would
highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or rent a home in the area.
Donna did very well . sold it pretty fast . she did everything she said she would and more !
Very professional throughout the entire experience.
Before I hired Amy to sell a condo in Highland Beach, I interviewed three agents. Amy impressed me with her knowledge of all the buildings in Highland Beach and throughout the sale her knowledge proved to be very valuable. Her suggestions regarding improvements to market the property were on target and helped generate a large number of showings and a quick sale. I found Amy to be extremely ethical, honest, conscientious and hard working. She is also a good listener and effective communicator. I was an absentee owner and she did an especially good job of keeping me informed of showings and reactions from potential buyers. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to buy or sell in Highland Beach.

Bought a home in 2011.
Our experience with Amy was 5-star. By familiarizing herself with our needs and preferences, she was able to show us a number of listings which met our criteria. Her knowledge of the area and listings was impeccalble, and her readiness to meet with us at any time, made our search much easier, and even enjoyable. She succeeded in finding us a property which is a dream come true.
Thank you, Amy.
My wife and I worked with Amy Blake in December 2010 and she was fantastic. Within 3 days we saw over 20 condos. It only took her a few showings for her to figure out what we were looking for. She helped us find a home inspector and helped us negotiate a price we were comfortable with. We closed on Feb. 10, 2011. I would highly recommend Amy Blake. Thanks, Amy
We used Amy to help us find a luxury ($3-$6 million) home in the Boca area. Since we currently live in Boston, it was important to have good follow up. We used Zillow for I-pad to identify several houses we might be interested in, and Amy arranged showings for us. During a three month period, we visited Florida 5 times to look at homes. Eventually, we found a house we were interested in, and made an offer that we considered fair (near the Zestimate and assessed value.) It took a lot of convincing to get the sellers to lower their expectations, as they had purchased in a stronger market and would have to take a loss on the home. Amy did the homework to assemble the comps, and to (politely) keep regular pressure on the sellers, repeatedly sending them new comps and recent sales and listings that supported a lower price. In the end, we did not wind up purchasing the home, because the sellers would not met our price expecations, but Amy got them very, very close. During the process, Amy showed us several other alternative houses, which were interesting and consistent with our requirements. Unfortunately, we did not end up purchasing a home through Amy because we found a beautiful property on the west coast of Florida (outside her market). Amy was very professional about losing out on a sale; she understands that good work will eventually pay off through referrals or future business. We would recommend Amy very highly. She is exceptionally diligent. Since we were looking in several markets, we worked with several other brokers who would send occasional emails or unsolicited computer-generated market updates. Amy's follow-up was frequent and tailored to what we were looking for. She took the effort to understand what we were looking for, and was always trying to find a way to move things forward for us. If you want personalized, attentive service, and diligent follow-up, Amy is the best
I had a great experience with Amy Blake. I was looking for a waterfront condominium in or around Highland Beach. Amy was very knowledgeable and insightful about the various properties available. She worked tiredlessly until she found me the perfect condo. She helped negotiate an excellent price. She guided me through the inspection, as well as, all the paperwork involved in the closing. Even after the closing she has been a great resource for finding a handy man, housekeeper, electrician,etc. Everyone she recommends has been very reliable. My whole experience could not have been better. I have no hesitation in recommending Amy.
I met Amy last February in Highland Beach. Having studied the market on internet and favoring a condo on the ocean I asked Amy to visit a few condos on the ocean and the canal in my price range. Also since I had done quite a bit of homework and knowing the area,I told her that I wished to go pretty fast visiting. Well she was prepared, with good choices for me to look at and compare and noticed quite fast that by the ocean was what I wanted. I appreciated the fact that she listened to what I said, she was well prepared, available and did an excellent job representing me with the listing agent and sellers. She is not afraid of work! I will recommend her for sure if I have the opportunity and I would use her again if I needed a top notch agent with good work ethics. Thank you Amy
