Locally based real estate agency World Impact Real Estate recently welcomed Realtors Lisa Hiekel and Debbie Kling to their team.

Hiekel moved here five years ago from the Midwest to pursue her passion for living on the Emerald Coast. She ran her own business for more than 20 years, is an experienced therapist, and is highly experienced in sales and customer service.

Her business background has led her in the path of going above and beyond to make sure her customers have a positive and pleasant experience. Hiekel’s passion is to assist others in pursuing their dreams and goals. She also loves spending time with family, traveling, reading, and spending time in the great outdoors.

Kling comes from an IT/programming background with more than 16 years of experience and has been creating websites for over two years now. She is dedicated, detail oriented — both strong attributes for a licensed real estate professional. She has always loved searching for houses and has personally been through the buying/selling stages many times.

Kling comes to the real estate business with experience and enthusiasm. She and her family have lived in Florida for more than 11 years, since moving from northern New Jersey. She first lived in eastern Florida and now the Panhandle, which she fell in love with. She looks forward every day to making her clients’ dreams of home ownership and beach living a reality.

“We are very excited to welcome both Lisa and Debbie to our team as we continue to grow and expand,” said Rodney Elkins, owner/broker of World Impact Real Estate. “Each brings unique talents to our firm, along with a wealth of knowledge in many diverse areas.”
