"Kathy and her team were wonderful to work with. They are informative, friendly and warm. Most importantly they know the Celebration market better than anyone else. It’s not a list it and forget about approach with Imagination Realty. They are hands on through the duration until your property is sold. Great communication and readily available to answer any and all questions. I’ve bought and sold several properties in the last few years and this was the best experience I’ve had. I highly recommend Kathleen Carlson and Imagination Realty."  - zuser20160103143130168 1354 Celebration Ave, Celebration, FL 34747, May 2020

Kathy & Ann, I just want to say thank you for all of your efforts to make this happen. It was a pleasure working with you all and you should be proud of the operation you run! Look forward to working with you again soon!! Take care,  - Philip, April 2020

Amazing - Megan, April 2020

It's been over a year since our purchase and I still remember vividly how helpful Kathy and the staff at Imagination Realty were for us. Words can never say how thankful we are Kathy, for you and the staff at your office. This dream of homeownership probably would not have become a reality without your unwavering assistance!! I would strongly encourage anyone looking to buy or sell real estate (especially in Celebration) to call Imagination Realty. - Oletta, April 2020

Twelve home purchases in a ten year period working with some talented realtors and none compare to Kathy and her team. In August of 2015 I was looking for an investment property and Imagination Realty convinced me that Celebration met all my needs and made me believe what we were about to embark on was a wise direction. Kathy and her team made the purchase of my second home effortless. When I reached back out to Kathy prior to the end of 2019 to list the home, I was again impressed with her knowledge of not only the area and market but if my specific property. She remembered details I had forgotten as those details made a measurable difference in our sale price. As a local business owner I understand what skill and effort it has taken for Imagination Realty to become and remain Celebration’s top firm. I am excited to continue to work with this outstanding team and we are excited to offer 30 days FREE 24/7 access to the World Famous Kissimmee Muscle 24 hour gym located just 5 miles East from the water tower shops. Thanks again Kathy and team for holding my hand through my purchase and sale and for returning more than I expected on my investment.  - Jonathan McGrael, Owner, Kissimmee Muscle Gym, February 2020

In this day and age it is heartwarming to deal with a Realtor that acts with true professionalism. Kathy and Bruce were able to help us with all aspects of our listing needs and provide a clear path through the minefields of obstables that arose. Thanks to them and their staff for all of the help and guidance that they were able to provide. - Craig, January 2020

The crew at Imagination Realty is out of this world. There's no secret as to why they have the reputation they do, and the sales volume that they generate. They know the area better than anyone, and when you inquire about a property they have they know the location, the history, and the ins and outs of the place you're asking about. The office is location right in Town Center, on Celebration Ave. Very easy to get to, and in and out of. Plus, they have all sorts of Celbration-ish materials! Street maps, trail maps, different books and knick-knacks showing their love for the little town "that Disney built". A pleasure for sure! - Rich, January 2020

Kathy, Bruce and Staff ~ We can't thank you and your staff enough for your continued support and hosting of our sponsor's parties for the Concert Series. This event would not have been a success without your involvement. Once again, Thank You, The Foundation Concert Committee (Dave, Paul, Debbie, Mary and Judi) October 2019

Kathleen is a top shelf real estate broker/agent in the Celebration community. All of the referrals we have received from her are extremely pleased with the process she provides when a person is buying or selling in the Celebration community. If you have never been to Celebration, the name speaks volumes of the magical place that it is. Larry Parks President Coastal Van Lines Inc. - October 2019

Great teamwork at Imagination Realty- Sheila and Ann were so helpful!Tara, September 2019

Note: I have not been prompted by Imagination Realty nor any one associated with the company to write this post. When I receive executive level service, I feel it is important for other consumers to know about it. Kathy is Celebration Florida’s real estate fountain of knowledge. There are quite a few ins and outs when looking at properties in Celebration to include property location, town history, town growth potential, CROA, HOA, Condo, Club Fees etc. My wife and I have very hectic schedules and I emailed and texted questions randomly to Kathy. Kathy answered all of the within a few hours if not minutes. We have been renting in Celebration for almost 1 year and we still did not know half of what Kathy did. Unfortunately, we did not purchase a property through them as my wife went through her friend who is a real estate agent. When I notified them, as a professional courtesy, we were using another agent Kathy’s staff was very excited for us and told us we are here to help regardless and welcomed us back for any question or real estate needs we have. That is above and beyond service! Celebration Florida Resident, Richard, September 2019

Ann, Kathy and everyone at Imagination Realty have been absolutely wonderful to work with and we appreciate it so much. Using your company has been one of our best decisions. Thanks to all, Bobbie and Ed (August 2019)

Sally and I would like to thank you , Bruce and Ann/staff for the great effort to close on our our condo. We realize that it turned out to be a last minute, superhuman effort with the water heater dilemma, but you made it work. Thanks again, from the bottom of our heart. Happy 4th of July to each of you and Bruce stand tall while marching in the parade, especially in the heat we've noticed your experiencing. Blessings, Tom and Sally (July 2019)

Thank you for your time and assistance. It was a pleasure working with you. God bless, John & Karin (June 2019)

We contacted Kathy and her team at Imagination Realty when we began our search for a single family home in Celebration, Florida. As we toured the various properties and drove up and down the streets, Kathy's expertise became very clear both because of her knowledge of the neighborhoods in Celebration and the friendly greetings she received during our trips through these neighborhoods. Once we found the perfect home, she was informative and communicative during settlement. After settlement, Kathy was able to provide references for outstanding contractors. Since our intention was to make the home a long-term rental until our retirement, Kathy also connected us with a terrific tenant. We are so thankful for having met Kathy and her team at Imagination Realty. - Frank Pieruccini (April 2019)

From another Realtor: "Very professional, friendly, and a great staff. Was a pleasure working on this deal with Kathy." - Brian Tabor (April 2019)

Dear Kathy, Bruce, Sheila and Ann, Wanted to send you a proper "Thank you!" after all your hard work selling our property on Longmeadow for us. Such a relief for me personally and helps us all re-focus on the most important thing in Celebration, our Dad's health and well being. Convincing my brothers to sell was the hard part. And watching you all work (from afar) and manage the property was smooth and easy. I cannot thank you enough! We're now heading into winter in Auckland, New Zealand and will come for some good ole Florida heat in August. I'll pop by and say hello! >All the best, Steve Brennan and Family (April 2019)

Kathleen and her team are the best in Celebration--period. She is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to our community, which comes in handy when navigating the pitfalls of buying and selling in a community with very little inventory. I have used Imagination for several transactions and would highly recommend working with them. - David (April 2019)

Kathy, Bruce, Sheila and Ann, We appreciate you so much! Thank you for being part of our "home team". We really appreciate all that you have done for us. - Brenda and Anthony

Dear Kathy, Bruce, Ann & Sheila, Many thanks for your efforts and perserverance on our behalf. Andy and I appreciate all that you did for us. Kathy, thanks so much for the parting gifts. Celebration will always have a place in our hearts. All the best, Suzanne, September 2018

Imagination Realty Team, Thank you for all the effort included in the numerous showings you arranged for us. I know that we were clients with very "particular" tastes and were all over the spectrum of home choices, from small condos to million dollar single family homes. It had to be a challenge for you and we very much appreciate your patience! With patience comes success. You have found the most wonderful home for us. I hope you can see our excitement from the love letter we wrote to the Grassos. Thank you for the guidance and support throughout the last 3 years, and most importantly in the last month as we prepared to close. We love Celebration and so look forward to being an owner in this great community. Enjoy a glass or two of wine and celebrate another very happy friend. Thank you! Kirk & Michele, September 2018

Kathy and her team are truly experienced professionals plus they are fun people to work with. Kathy's team showed my wife and I at least a dozen properties and they were always happy to show us as many as we needed to see. We had some difficult negotiations and it was Kathy's experience and skills that got the deal done. Through the years I've had a lot of experience with Realtors and I am absolutely sure that I have never worked with a better team. - Robert Mackey

To all of you at Imagination Realty: Thank you for making Scott and me feel at "home" during our closing! Your help and thoughtful attitude did not go unseen! Thank you! - Sonya & Scott

Kathy Carlson is top notch real estate professional. She is diligent and follows through on every issue. She knows the market and has world-wide contacts. She sold our home after only a few days on the market at the listed price. We would consider no-one else if we were buying or selling another home. gcmoran

Our experience throughout the sale period has been a most pleasant one. Mrs. Carlson and the Office staff at Imagination Realty attended to every detail necessary as needed, with proper and timely action if a reaction was needed, keeping us abreast of any developments promptly. Professional and Public Open House days were scheduled and attended. The sale of the property was advertised with proper effort and exposure, resulting in a successful sale within a reasonable time period. - Yani48

Kathy's in-depth knowledge of the local market is superb. We have worked with her for several transactions and she is always available to answer questions. Her advice on how to prepare our home to show and sell was very helpful. Her recommendation for a local contractor to help with needed repairs was very valuable, since it is so difficult to find someone you can trust to show up and do a good job. I highly recommend Kathy and her team. - Jill

Kathy, Thank you so much for all of yours and Bruce's efforts. The referals you have given us have been a huge help. The house is almost complete. It all came together a lot quicker than we thought. Thanks again. Anthony and Vicki

Thank you for all you've done! - Gloria, Mary Pat, Becky, Annette and Thriving Members

Sheila, Ann & Kathy, We can't begin to thank you for the tickets to the concert. It was so very generous of you and such a delight for us. What an amazing memory it will be to think of our first weekiend in Celebration! We knew immediately that we made the right choice by using your realty but you all continue to prove it! Thank you! - The Bankers

Very pleased with Kathy with the sale of our house. We had challenges selling but Kathy and her team stayed with it and were very helpful as we were selling while residing in another state.

Kathy Carlson is helpful, smart and has many contacts. Many people buy & sell and use Kathy more than once in realestate. She has the history of many properties and can predict sales before they come on the market. Kathy & Bruce sold our propety in record time. Awesome job! - Tweet Coleman

A huge thank you to Kathy, Ann, Sheila and Bruce for all your help with a trying sale of 323 Celebration Blvd. Thank you! - Doug and Chris E.

Kathy, Bruce, Ann and Sheila. Thank you so much for your efforts and hard work on our behalf. - Maria and Ralph F.

Kathy & Bruce! Words can't even begin to express our profound gratitude for your friendship, your love, your support and your guidance! You helped us - just as you help so many others who are blessed to cross your path - to imagine, dream, believe and realize the vision of our perfect home! Like Walt Disney says: 'If you can dream it - you can do it." and with you - that is positively true! Thank you for making our dreams and our dream home a reality! Blessings & Love, Julie & Bill

Kathy was a pleasure to work with. She has a real talent she was able to understand what we needed and getting us and the property we needed together. We truly appreciate all of her help. Rick S.

Kathy Carlson is both the ultimate professional and one terrific individual. She's ahead of the pack when it comes to knowing what is available and just right for your needs. We have both purchased homes from Kathy and sold a home through her. In both buying and selling we have been treated royally. She cares deeply about the satisfaction of her buyers and sellers. Cannot say enough good things about her -- she's simply the best. Linda - a very happy homeowner

Lorri and I never intended to build a winter home in Celebration, Florida....In fact, neither of us had ever heard of it before....We had were in the Orlando area last summer, had my office book us a room at the Bohemian Hotel downtown and 45 minutes after checking in, were sitting in Kathy's office at Imagination Reality....The following day we met Kim at DW Homes and at that point, we were sold....You all made it way too easy and we are excited to see the house next week....dc
