Word on the Street


My wife and I looked at more than 50 homes before we finally found the right home that had everything we wanted.  Alicia always took the time and helped us when we wanted to see a house or needed more information.  She did an outstanding job negotiating with the seller and pointed out a few things that we would have never thought of.  We will definitely use Alicia King in the future if and when we will be purchasing more real estate.  Rated on a scale 1-5, we give her a 6 (5 for top level plus 1 for her being #1).

Alicia is the most professional person I know.  She is my go to for all of my business needs and always will be.  But above all else, Alicia is a wonderful and devoted friend.

Growing up in Saint Petersburg, Florida I always knew I wanted to own a home where so many people come to vacation each year. After living in Tennessee for three years and re-locating back to Florida my husband and I knew it was time to find what we affectionately called “Our Nest”. After several moves in the first few years of our marriage we were ready to be in a home where we could settle in and start to raise a family.

We have both known Alicia for many years and there was no doubt that she was the perfect agent to help us find our home. Alicia worked with us along each step of the way from recommending a lender to assisting us with our closing. She even worked around our crazy schedules to show us properties, even on nights and weekends. When we found the property that is now our home, Alicia acted quickly as we knew it wouldn’t be on the market long. We saw the property on the second day it was listed. She put in our offer and although ours wasn’t the first they received through Alicia’s diligence we were able to get our dream home. We couldn’t be happier and we are so thankful for Alicia’s expertise and guidance throughout our home buying experience. We highly recommend Alicia and Franklin Bell Realty for any Real Estate needs!

I moved to Florida a year ago knowing very little about the housing market in the Polk County area, I was lucky to work with Alicia, thanks to her dedication and knowledge I found a beautiful home that surpassed  my expectations. She will walk you through a document line by line making sure you understand everything before you sign, and she will let you see as many places as you need to see until you find the home you are happy with. I’m extremely happy to work with Alicia and I would recommend her to anybody planning to sell or buy a home.

Alicia King helped us find our dream home!  Her passion for real estate shows in her hard-core work ethic, her knowledge of real estate and its laws, and her can-do attitude.  She definitely goes to bat for you with all bases loaded!
