Kendal was named after Henry John Broughton Kendal, the director of the Florida Land and Mortgage Company, who bought the land in 1883.

They are very knowledgeable and professional. Always accessible, which is so important when you are buying or selling a home and helpful in every way. Not much more to add besides...we love, love, love them! - EL
Julie Frederick is the most reliable, trustworthy, and knowledgeable realtor I know. I told her what I was looking for in a home and she diligently searched high and low until she found the perfect home for my family. Even when I thought I found "the one" she advised me that the sellers were overpriced, and it wouldn't be in my best interest to pursue that home. She did all the work in finding and securing insurance for the home I was purchasing, helped with the inspection process, and set me up with an amazing loan officer that helped to put my financing in order. We couldn't be more pleased with our home. Julie is so friendly, and very honest. She still checks up on me to this day on how we are enjoying our home! Best realtor hands down! The closing was such a smooth process and she made that happen so quickly for my family! I am so grateful for Julie!! - NM
