Stephanie Gagnon loves her job with the Keyes Company. Her current position grew out of her long career in property management.

“I moved to Palm Beach County from Madison, Wis., 17 years ago, where I studied criminal justice at Madison Area Technical College,” Gagnon said. “I was offered a phenomenal job opportunity in sunny South Florida, where my real estate career was launched. I spent 14-plus years in property management and property accounting, overseeing a large portfolio of multifamily housing developments throughout South Florida and Mississippi.”

Two years ago, Gagnon felt the urge to branch out into other areas of real estate.

“Looking to take the next step in my career, I became a licensed Realtor in 2014 and joined the Keyes Company in Wellington,” she explained. “I was impressed with Keyes’ family-like service, management support system and honorable reputation.”

Since joining Keyes, Gagnon has become a mentor within the firm’s Business Certification Coaching Program and is responsible for immersing sales associates into the daily functions and responsibilities.

As a wife and mother of two children — daughter Adriana, 9, and son Mason, 4 — Gagnon keeps busy during her spare time as the vice president of public relations for the Discovery Key Elementary School PTA. She also coaches her daughter’s intramural soccer team in Wellington and is an avid runner.

She doesn’t hesitate to credit the unique working atmosphere at Keyes for her continuing commitment to her job.

“Keyes has been an independently and family-owned company since 1926, which makes it not beholden to corporate structures that exist in national companies,” Gagnon said. “Keyes offers hands-on, personalized management support, state-of-the-art training and a strong internet presence for its agents. I am extremely hands-on, passionate, energetic and relentless.”

She is sure to keep the focus on her clients.

“For me, quality of service comes first, and every transaction is as unique as the home buyer and seller,” Gagnon said. “I recognize buying and selling can be very stressful for some; therefore, I pride myself on working hard to gain the trust and support of the clients who expect and deserve to obtain their objective.”

Working in and living close to Wellington has allowed Gagnon a unique perspective. She can assess the community both personally and professionally.

“Wellington is a highly sought-after destination in which to live,” she said. “It has that great hometown vibe, the unmistakable equestrian flavor and is a family-friendly community offering something for everyone. It’s also recognized for some of the top-rated schools in Palm Beach County. While I have become very familiar with Wellington and the surrounding areas, my focus remains directed toward the needs of the home buyer and seller, regardless of the location.”

Gagnon believes that the future of the local real estate market is healthy and probably will remain that way.

“I see the market as stable and positioned for conservative growth and holding strong over the next few years,” she said. “Foreclosure filings and short sales are significantly lower than previous years. Banks are holding the foreclosed homes close to their chests and demanding market value in some areas. Interest rates seem to be holding strong and are at an all-time low.”

The Keyes Company is located at 13920 Wellington Trace, Suite 200, in Wellington. To contact Stephanie Gagnon, call (561) 252-3356 or visit
