Happy Customers


“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Jude for the sale of my condo. She kept me informed at every step of the way with showings, comments and suggestions on how to make it show better. Once we had a contract, she kept me sane throughout the process of working through all of the contingencies and brought me through the closing. Jude is professional in every sense of the word but she is also compassionate and understanding. I would highly recommend Jude to handle any real estate transaction. ”

Terry Carbonell

“Patti Skelly is not only an amazing person but an amazing realtor as well. She took the time to find the perfect house and she knows us so well that we only looked at about 5 or 6 homes in one day before we found THE ONE! The entire process was so quick and smooth because of Patti, Brian and Jude. Patti was always a phone call away for anything that we needed. We would never make another home purchase without the Lindback Team!”

Allison G.

“Patti took the description of what I was looking for and threw a range of different houses my way that were all good until I found the right one. If one house was good but not perfect she would promptly create a new list of houses for me to view each adding more and more of the criteria I asked for until we found the one. Always available, very knowledgable, and kept things as easy and simple as possible. Took the hard work out of the entire process and made it the best experience it could be for me.”

Mitchell R.

“We were referred to Jude by a friend in the Keys who told us she was ‘the best’. Now, 18 months after beginning our search for a home in the Keys, we are the proud owners of a lovely house on the bay, and we can confirm that Jude is, hands down, ‘the best’! Three things make Jude stand apart from other realtors. First, she was genuinely interested in understanding what we wanted in a home. She took our wish-list to heart and was very focused in presenting listings that met our criteria, so as to not waste our time. Second, her follow-up was impeccable. We live remotely, and from the time we contacted Jude until we found our ‘dream home’ we spent 18 months searching together. She had the perfect balance of staying in touch without being intrusive. She was committed and extremely patient throughout the process – the mark of a true professional. Finally, the service Jude has provided since we signed our contract has been as exceptional, if not more so, than her service during the hunt. She has been there every step of the way, going over and above in providing recommendations and accomplishing tasks with a true sense of urgency. We couldn’t be happier and would strongly recommend Jude to anyone looking to find their perfect home in paradise.”


“Jude, found me my dream Keys house in July 2018. Her local knowledge and vast real estate knowledge showed through during our search. You could tell right away that she was more worried about your long term happiness vs the short sale. My brother was looking as well and not happy with the results he was getting from his realtor. I turned him onto Jude and his luck turned immediately do to her hard work. He found his dream home soon there after and now has a second home in Key Largo. Save time and go with Jude Gatewood Lindback. It’s been a year and a half and we are both still very happy.”

Steve Young

Your extra effort to make sure the entire process went smoothly, from receiving a contract until closing and beyond. I would highly recommend you and Berkshire Hathaway to anyone wanting to sell or buy a home in the Keys. Thanks again Jude, you are the best! ”

Tom & Maryann Amador

“We had an excellent experience working with Jude. With not living in the Keys, Jude handled every aspect of the sale for us. She was very professional and kept us advised on all steps all the way to closing. We would definitely recommend her to any friend or relative. She is a very hard worker and gets the job done in a professional manner.”

Cathy Golden

“This was our second transaction with Jude Lindback. Jude is well-connected in the area and has a wealth of real estate knowledge. I appreciate her professional demeanor and the clear and candid advice that she provided from contract to closing. I highly recommend her services.”


“JUDE has been the best Realtor. I have had the pleasure of using her back in 2011 for a sale, and now in 2016 for a new purchase. Each time Jude has gone above board in both transactions. She was extremely informative and very detailed about all the necessary forms and transactions. Every step of the way, she was there for me! I could not have asked for a better Realtor! I will absolutely recommend her every time to a friend or relative…she is Amazing!!!”

She made us feel like we were her top priority (other than her family and that is how it should be!) From start to finish she was a true professional and a credit to her profession. I would absolutely recommend Jude to my friends and family.”

Jim Enright

“Jude is not only a proficient and highly skilled Realtor, she is a dedicated friend who has taken care of us over the years for no other reason but due to the kindness in her heart, expecting nothing in return. There is no one else that I would choose as a Realtor, especially regarding such an important and emotional decision as purchasing a home.”

Kim Browning

“My experience with Jude was very good. She was always available for questions…no pressure… and she gave me plenty of notice for showings. As this was my first experience selling and buying a home, Jude was patient with my ignorance and very helpful. I would definitely recommend Jude to a friend or relative.”

Connie McCullough

“From the moment we met Jude, we knew she was a perfect match for us. She is laid back, easy going, and thorough from start to finish. She monitored the progress of our home we were purchasing through the remodeling since we were 5 hours away. She sent us pictures, stayed in weekly contact via text/phone and email. She joined us at closing and even came to make sure we were doing okay after closing. We would highly recommend Jude to our friends and relatives. We love our house and appreciate all that she did for us.”

John & Heidi Molle

“Totally fantastic. She was very upfront, honest, professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy and dedicated to her clients. I feel that she worked so hard for me that we actually will have a lifetime friendship. I believe that I could not find a better realtor.”

“This was the first home I have purchased. Jude was very caring and professional. Any issues that came along, she solved them immediately. She did an excellent job. I would most definitely recommend her to a friend or relative. ”

Connie Kaicher

“It was a pleasure working with Jude for the purchase of our home. She is very professional and kept us informed about the status of the transaction at all times. I have purchased and sold several homes in the past, and I have never seen the high level of service that I received with her.”

Charlotte Somers

“Jude was a FANTASTIC Realtor to work with. It was apparent that her expertise was a great asset to us in securing the deal on our new home. Jude really went to bat for us! Throughout the purchase process she was incredibly diligent and helpful. After closing she was most generous with both her time and thoughtful gifts for our new home. We consider her not only to be a great Realtor, but a GREAT friend as well, and would not hesitate to recommend Jude to a friend needing real estate advice and services.”

Henry & Sally Johnston

“Jude’s service was impeccable. She was able to listen to my demands as a buyer and hone in on a perfect 2nd home for my wife and I. She always followed through on requests made of her even when I (the buyer) was not in the same city as her. Additionally, she always made sure to keep us abreast of all the documentation and pending actions needed and provided information to ensure that the home had what we needed to start using it on day one. I would highly recommend Jude’s services to other buyers.”

Pedro Garcia

“Oh my, where should I begin? I feel as though I have known Jude for a part of my life, but we just met last year in 2013 in order to list our property for sale in the Florida Keys. Jude was able to help negotiate a family issue regarding the dispute of a family matter – which was not a pleasant situation to say the least. She was often right in the middle and i am forever grateful to her for handling it all with grace. It was a very difficult listing and she agreed to re-list it in the midst of all of these issues at hand. She was also dealing with both sellers living out of state, and showing the property with it being vacant was a challenge for her and us. All in all, it was a gift that we received an excellent offer and a quick closing in 3 weeks, that was all based on Jude taking multiple offers to help us get the BEST offer. I would highly recommend Jude Lindback. She is a blessing.”

Diane Patrick

“Jude is a total professional who is there every step of the way in every aspect of the transaction. In addition, she is proactive in getting all parties to perform as needed. She is the only Realtor that I would ever use.”

Don Phillips

“We want to thank you for selling our townhome in Islamorada. Your diligence, along with your experience, allowed us to realize the price we anticipated. Your professionalism was also very much appreciated. Thanks again and all the best for 2014.”

Ed & Janet Leo

“We can’t thank you enough for all your hard work over the years in our original search for the perfect keys home and also the sale of it 20 years later….not to mention our attempt a few years back. Its sounds like real estate is moving once again and we wish you all the best and hope you have an even better 2014 than 2013! You really are a terrific realtor to work with!”

Nancy & Joe

“When we purchased our home we were very impressed with the level of service provided by Jude Lindback. She kept us informed on the status of the transaction at all times working diligently to solve any issues that arose. She is very professional and I would strongly recommend her for the sale or purchase of real estate.”


“She sold our house very quickly and she has been very helpful looking for other properties. She is very knowledgeable of all the properties for sale in the upper Keys and responds quickly to any questions.”


“Jude is a real professional person that tells you upfront all that you really need to know about the property that you are planning to either buy or sell. She demonstrated that sincere and good attitude when she sold us the house that we have in Plantation Key Colony in 2002. Another excellent asset in her is that she cares about you and makes you feel that you are always priority in her daily businesses. She not only sold the house we have, but she also sold the house we had in the same neighborhood in 2003. I had the pleasure of recommending her to a couple that we know for years and my friends were very impressed by her skills and in fact she sold them a property about 10 years ago in Key Largo, that they still enjoy.”


“Jude helped us find our vacation home in Islamorada 4 years ago. She was very knowledgeable and she very accommodating which was important to us since we live 5 hours away. Since our closing, Jude has continued to help us find yard care, handyman service, etc. We would highly recommend her to friends and family and we wouldn’t hesitate to use Jude again in the future.”


“11 years ago my husband and I met Jude. Her knowledge of the area helped us to find our first home in the keys. We built a great relationship over the years and became very close friends. Jude continues to help us with buying, selling and renting properties. Jude took the time to get to know us and find out our needs in a home. Our experience not only found us our home but we made a wonderful new friend.”


“We were very happy with the sale of our property in the Florida Keys- Jude was able to handle various issues that was helpful in a family matter. As both seller where out of state- She was negociating between parties and also handling multiable offers for our property. All in all it was a gift that we received an excellent offer and a quick closing 3 weeks, that was all based on Jude taking multiable offers to help us get the BEST offer. I would highly recommend Jude Lindback. ”


“Jude is the realtor’s realtor. She is with you through every step of the way. You will have no worries. She is the most professional and honest individual you will ever meet in any capacity. She has handled a number of transactions for me and I could not have asked for more. Your interests are her number one priority. ”


“Jude is a incredible realtor. Jude sold my house in less then 90 days. Very professional, and very knowledgable in the Florida Keys Real Estate. Jude took the time to explain every little detail for the Sale of my home. I highly reccomend Jude as your Realtor. I will surely use her again in my next buying and or selling of a home.”
