About Re/Max Coastal Real Estate

In June of 1993 Michele Smith and Eileen McVeigh envisioned a better way to do real estate: A company where agents could truly be independent contractors and could take control of where they wanted to see their business grow, all the while being partnered with one of the largest real estate companies in the world, RE/MAX.  After purchasing the RE/MAX franchise, they decided to create an office atmosphere centered around the agents’ needs.

Michele and Eileen are always available to answer their agents questions, providing decades of combined experience and valuable insights to help their agents best serve their clients.

Their office has closed thousands of real estate transactions since and they have gained even more experience to assist you with any residential real estate needs you have.

RE/MAX has always had a reputation for being on the cutting edge of technology.  Having access to the best tools on the market, including websites with access to the MLS listings, syndicating their listings to the 50 or 60 most popular real estate websites, and offering contracts that can be signed from someone’s phone or iPad are just some of the services they offer.

The www.remax.com website is usually one of the top 5 real estate sites.  If you want to see how many people are looking at the site, RE/MAX has a portal to show how many people across the country are actually searching for real estate.  Go to:  http://workingforyou.remax.com/

For over 20 years Michele and Eileen have had an office of highly successful REALTORS, including two of the top RE/MAX agents in the state of Florida.

Community involvement and “giving back”  is also important.   Participating in charitable organizations such as Daniel, The Children’s Miracle Network and the Donna Hicken Foundation are just a few that the office members are involved in.

Eileen says , “Trusting us with your largest purchase or sale is something we don’t take lightly.  We treat every  transaction as though it involved a family member. We try to leave everyone better off than before they met us”.

Fellow BNI Members & Guests,

If you are need of a Realtor, or know of any friends, family members or coworkers in need of a Realtor to buy or sell a home, I highly recommend you contact Eileen McVeigh, the Broker/Owner of ReMax Coastal Real Estate.

I base this recommendation on my direct experience in working with Eileen for over ten years and also on the feedback I have received from my friends, family members and lending clients that I have referred to Eileen for help with buying or selling a home.

Eileen has a passion for Real Estate and an extensive knowledge of the market. She makes herself available 7 days a week and goes above and beyond for her clients. And by her willingness to show as many homes as necessary to meet a homebuyers’ needs and desires, she creates an exceptional buying experience.

From a lending standpoint, her integrity and professionalism in handling the common, and not so common issues that arise in real estate transactions is truly appreciated.

Further proof of why you should recommend Eileen is demonstrated in her 5 star Realtor designation. This designation is not something you can buy, or get online votes to qualify for. This award is based solely on her actual client feedback surveys and only 2% of all Realtors in this market can obtain this coveted title.

Eileen is truly deserving of this honor and when you refer to Eileen, the homebuyers and sellers that you send her way will thank you.

Dear Eileen,

Back in 2010, when my wife and I bought our first house we had a terrible real estate agent that left much of the research, negotiations, and work, to my wife. To make matters worse he was sexist and dismissive and overall it was a very bad experience to say the least. So this time around we wanted to make sure we had a real estate agent that would work for us, and not the other way around. Luckily, we found Eileen.

Over the last several months, Eileen has made herself available night and day, weekend or holiday, to answer phone calls, texts, emails, even come to our home after hours. Eileen made arrangements for us, called the other real estate agent, and even looked up prices for repairs we needed to make. She even offered to watch our baby for us!

On the purchase side of things, we now love our new home and our neighbors told us they’re made at us because we were able to get it for such a great price.

On the sale side of things, we received six offers within 12 hours and were under contract for above listing price within 24 hours. When the buyer’s original financing fell through, Eileen made several phone calls and another lender was quickly found. In the end we were still able to close ahead of schedule.

We love our new house, and we’re happy to have sold our old house so quickly. This experience was night and day compared to our prior experience, and we will be happy to refer Eileen to our friends and family as the look to buy or sell their home.

Dear Eileen,

Over the years I have had the pleasure of referring my clients to Eileen and even myself from time to time. Without exception, EVERY client was delighted with her exceptional service and professionalism. Eileen truly is the BEST of the BEST when it comes to residential real estate and I am proud to tell people that she is a member of my team!

I will continue to recommend Eileen with the highest degree of confidence that she will work tirelessly for your best interest.

Dear Eileen,

Thank you for helping us find our first home. As first time homebuyers, we had ideas of what we wanted, but also felt we had no idea of what we were doing. Understandably, we were equally excited and nervous throughout the process – we could not have gotten through it without you. We greatly appreciate all the time and patience you gave us in shopping properties  –  a process that spanned over a year.  You were very flexible in meeting with us to view properties at times that worked for us. You were supportive throughout the process and never pushy. In the end, we thought you perfectly balanced two things: (1) allowing us to form our own opinions about a property; and (2) providing your own thoughts and advice to make sure we didn’t miss an important detail. You will be an easy referral based on this experience and we look forward to helping others find the best realtor around.

Thank you again for all you did for us.

Chris Keever and Jessica Mounsey


Thank you for doing such a great job for my son, Bryce.  He and Ashlee are thrilled with their first home.

Much continued success to you in the future.

Jamie Everett, Vice President, ABR, SFR, Realtor Action Pro Realty

Eileen helped us find the home of our dreams! She was always available when we called and took us to as many homes as we requested. She helped us with the negotiations and got us the best possible deal! She also was very knowledgeable in keeping us from buying the wrong home! You will not find a better more experienced agent!

Ken and Carol Kretschmer


I want to thank you for helping me find my new condo. You made the process smooth and painless. You listened to what I said I was looking for, including the price range, and put together an internet search fitting what I wanted. You took the time to meet and show me the various properties that caught my interest, even when you knew I might not like what I saw. You did this all, even though I was only looking for a place to rent. I cannot wait until I am ready to buy, as I now know I have a professional Realtor I can truly rely on.

You can count on me to refer you to anyone I know.
