Kevin Hyde has a long history with Boca Grande. As far back as the early 1970s, while living in St. Petersburg Beach, Florida, Kevin would come to the island with his family during tarpon season and stay at the Gasparilla Inn. In 1992, Kevin moved to Alaska with his young family. In Alaska, Kevin traveled extensively and spent time in remote native villages and the gold and copper mining districts of the interior. During this time, Kevin and his family regularly returned to Boca Grande for family vacations.
When Kevin and his family returned to Florida, he began his full-time real estate career working with clients in Boca Grande, Little Gasparilla Island, Palm Island, Manasota Key, Placida and the Cape Haze peninsula. Kevin loves Boca Grande and the dynamic nature of the real estate business.
President of the Englewood Area Board of Realtors, Member of the Florida Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors, Kevin was chosen one of the top 50 "Realtors on the Rise" in 2007 by Real Estate Magazine, winning for the high level of customer service and outstanding results that his clients and customers consistently rave about.
In 2014 I was nominated and ultimately voted onto the Englewood Area Board of Realtors which is a great honor, and most Recently was elected as President Elect of the Board of Realtors, where my Presidency begins January 1 2017.
A specialist in luxury home sales, Kevin also belongs to the International Consortium of Real Estate Associations, Who's Who in Luxury Real Estate, the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, and their Million Dollar Guild. He has also earned the title of Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist and has been Transnational Referral Certified since 2007 by the International Consortium of Real Estate Associations. This designation separates Kevin from the pack when working with international buyers and sellers, having been rigorously trained to skillfully manage every aspect of the international buying and selling processes. Kevin has also achieves the Resort and Second Home Property Specialist designation, giving his clients the confidence to make buying decisions in this often times tricky market.
My community service has included Board of directors seats with ; Boca Grande area Chamber of Commerce, Royal Palm Players, The Boca Grande Historical Society, and Englewood Area Board of Realtors.
Nancy and Kevin rock! They are knowledgeable about the Gulf coast area and the market. They provide outstanding support and recommendations about various properties and communities. We are from Colorado and met Nancy and Kevin by phone and conducted our whole buying transactions via the phone. They were with us every step of the way to make this one of our most enjoyable and efficient real estate transactions. I am glad we know them, so we can rely on them for our future real estate needs. And on top of all of that, they are both wonderful people!

Kevin & Nancy Hyde are Boca Grande's finest, most knowledgeable, and friendliest realtors on the island!! Our day with them was outstanding and just plain fun! They showed us a Boca Grande we never knew existed! We didn't want to leave. They "got" what we were looking for within a few minutes which made it so much easier than touring places that weren't "us!" Thank you, Kevin & Nancy! It was a successful day!
— Deborah Kimball
Were always available to answer any questions. Great to work with.
Always available to handle any issues that arose. This was important due to living out of the area at time of sale.
As I sit here in our dream-come-true Florida getaway, I can’t help but to thank my lucky stars that Nancy & Kevin are our realtors. They took the time to get to know and understand our family’s needs, and their expertise led us to the perfect place that was not on our radar initially. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Nancy & Kevin!!

Figuring out which home was best for us was not an easy decision and you guys were very helpful in looking at the pros and cons of each location and you knowledge of the area and experience was very helpful. Communication however is your strongest point. You're always on top of it, getting us the information we need when we needed it. I couldn't be happier with our purchase and you guys had a major part in helping us find it. Thanks, Paradise found.

We worked primarily with Nancy, who is intimately familiar with the local market, responded promptly to all our inquiries and requests, and proved to be an adept and resourceful problem solver. She kept careful track of our deadlines, kept us well informed of the progress of our mortgage application, and worked diligently and successfully to get our time-sensitive purchase closed on schedule.
Working with Nancy and Kevin was a true pleasure. They were very knowledgeable of the market in the area, extremely responsive and went way out of their way to help us, since we were from out of town. Thanks to their assistance and knowledge, we were able to close on the property in less than 30 days! Thank you Nancy and Kevin!

Nancy and Kevin were outstanding realtors. We are from Colorado and were interested in purchasing a condo in Placida. We met Nancy and Kevin by phone. We were able to conduct our search, property visits and selection with them by phone. Nancy and Kevin visited various properties and by FaceTime and videos were able to show us the properties - it worked perfectly! They have extensive knowledgeable of the Gulf coast region, as well as various communities and their features. Their knowledge, support and excellence made our buying experience a success (and a piece of cake)! I highly recommend Nancy and Kevin. If I do another real estate transaction in Florida, they will be my absolute go to realtors.

Kevin and Nancy Hyde are very knowledgeable about Boca Grande and are in the inner circle when it comes to accessing information before Anyone else. It’s nice to get the “inside scoop”.
We looked for quite a while on the island before we found the perfect home. Nancy and Kevin never rushed us or made us feel that we were imposing on their time. When we finally got down to the final stages their expertise and local knowledge helped us through the tough spots. They are great people to work with, the ultimate professionals! They made us feel like friends and I look forward to working with them for any future transactions we have.
Kevin and Nancy were not only delightful to work with but probably the Best Realtor Team we have come across in 30 years. They are extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the laws of the different towns. If a problem comes up they were always available to be there. Thank you Kevin and Nancy for suggesting ideas that made it easier to sell our house. It was nice to see that big 'SOLD' sign at the end of our property!

We were looking out of state and Kevin and Nancy made the process very easy for us. Nancy took the time to show us everything we wanted to see in order for us to make a sound decision. They followed through for us while we couldn't be on site and went the extra mile for us

I was blessed to have Nancy and Kevin respond to my online inquiry. They were absolutely amazing. My purchase was completed "virtually" with no problems. They were kind enough to go out to the lot which I inquired about and sent a video. I cannot say enough amazing things about this team! Thank you so much! I am thrilled.
Dear Nancy and Kevin,
Just a short note to say a big thank you from both Jonathan and myself for your excellent work in bringing together what proved to be a particularly difficult closure. We always knew you were the right people for the job and you have never hesitated to go above and beyond. If ever we can recommend you, we will be happy to do so. Best regards.

Kevin came highly recommended to my wife and me for our search for a condo on or close to Boca Grande. Kevin spent time understanding what was important to us and provided us with several properties to review and provide feedback. We quickly were able to identify several properties to view.
Kevin was very thorough in presenting comp estimates. Helped guide us to properly show the home. He navigated the tire kickers and made the real offers compete for highest price. Would recommend.

Kevin sold our house for us on Don Pedro Island several years ago. we were extremely pleased with the service he gave us and the negotiating skill he exercised to get us the best price possible while respecting the buyer. We plan to use Kevin to represent us when we purchase another place in Boca Grande.
— Gary Edward Ballman
Kevin has sold two of our homes in Boca Grande, FL. The first in a deflated market with some rather unusual circumstances attached to the home, the other in a matter of two weeks! His creativity in marketing our second home was first-rate. I’ve seen the method duplicated twice within 3 months following the sale.
— Pam McMillin
Kevin understood my timeline to sell and assisted me with preparing my home in order to reach my goals. I found him to be responsive, professional and well versed in the local real estate market. My experience with Kevin was truly first class.
— K. Haas
Kevin has proven to be an extraordinary realtor that continues to impress with his attention to detail, local knowledge, and an ability to always keep the clients best interests first and foremost. Specifically, he has sold me two homes, both at what turned out be a “better than market” price. He also listed and sold a property of mine at a time when nothing much was selling on our island.
— J. Gravanda
Kevin stepped in to help us purchase a vacation home on Palm Island when our original Michael Saunders & Company realtor decided to go on vacation and left us hanging in the middle of the negotiations. He handled the negotiations as a transaction broker and I found him to be fair and honest in his dealings with us. He was the consummate professional and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
— Karen Olin
When dealing with Kevin he became much more than just a Realtor. After the closing when I needed a boat, ladder or even dinner Kevin was always there to help me get the things that I needed. He will be there for you long after the commission is paid. I would highly recommend using Kevin as your Realtor in the Boca Grande area.
— J. Parrish
Kevin and Nancy are amazing! Prompt responses and very knowledgable about the area!! They are available at all times and offer honest feedback. Kevin is well connected and involved in the community and is happy to research any new situation.
— Mary Erkel
Nancy is the ultimate professional, highly attentive and accessible without being pushy at all. She and Kevin made themselves available at a moments notice even on the weekend! I will always use Nancy and Kevin Hyde in the future. I cannot tell you how much effort they put into helping us find just the right home for our family!

Linda and I decided to retire to Florida and wanted to move where our daughter and her husband had recently moved. We were very fortunate to have Nancy Hyde recommended to us as our realtor. Nancy worked tirelessly searching for a place for us to live close to our daughter prior to our trip to Florida to look at homes. We met Nancy and her husband Kevin, finally, and began looking at many homes. Nancy knew we wanted to live close to our daughter and we were not able to find anything close that was in our price range that we liked. As we were driving back to Indiana sad that we did not find a home, Nancy called and said she found the perfect home and it was in our daughter's sub division. They called my daughter and we did a face time tour of the home as we drove. It was perfect and we could walk to our daughter's and we made an offer and it was accepted immediately. Thanks to Nancy and the support of Kevin we closed on the house and moved into our home for Christmas. Nancy and Kevin had a "Can Do" and "Whatever It Took" attitude to help us find the perfect location for our move to Florida and the start of our retirement close to our daughter and her husband.
