Working in real estate since 1995, Sally is a full-service Lexington and Key West Property Management specialist as well as an experienced and thorough sales agent. If you are in need of real estate services, please contact us (phone number and email above in the header) and let’s see if we are a match. I’m happy to answer any and all questions and concerns.
Born and raised in Winchester, Sally graduated from GRC in… well, quite some time ago. She wrangled a B.S. in Communications and Sociology from Lindenwood Colleges in St. Charles, MO, then wandered around the country wondering where to settle down. By the late 70s, she’d ended up in the other paradise, Key West Florida, and stayed for 30 years. Key West is a fascinating, tropical, tolerant, generous place to live. Hal and she met, fell in love, got married in their backyard at sunset overlooking the water, became parents… they grew up in Key West. Their two (gigantic) teens, Morgan and Ryan, both Conchs, spent their childhoods there. They know the town, they know the people, they still feel part of that community despite a number of years away. They gotta history!
In 2006, shortly after the devastation known as Wilma and well after the Key West market had begun its downward spiral, the O’Boyles moved to Costa Rica for a year and ended up living there for five. Y, sí, Saratica tiene la certificada del Camara Costariccense de Corredores Bienes Raices (and, yes, Sally is legally allowed to sell real estate in Costa Rica)! What an adventure, pura vida indeed.
Cut to Fall 2010: the O’Boyles are recalled to the states to help care for Sally’s elderly mom (very much alive and kicking). Today, they are in Lexington, living in farm country, surrounded by lush green rolling hills, fast horses and lovely people. An adventure of another sort altogether. With her mom and siblings and their families all living in Lexington, it’s nice to be close to family.
About Key West Property Management
Yes, Sally manages property from afar. She handles all the phone work, her crew handles all the showings and ground work. They’ve managed this way since 1995. Even when she lived in Key West, this has always been the system and it works beautifully. She couldn’t do this from afar without having lived in Key West for 30 years, without her fantastic support team there, nor without visiting several times a year. In almost 20 years, she’s never lost a customer (except due to a property sale) so it must be working!
