Thanks for stopping by Your Home Insight, a source for Homeowners, Sellers, Renters, Buyers, DIY’ers, Househunters, and All Our Friends Who Live In Houses.

Here, you’ll find information about real estate, staging, and home design; plus tips, quotes, links, photos, and a dash of stuff that may inspire and move you (pun intended).


Hi, I’m Deanna (Dee), Realtor and wizard behind the YHI curtain. As a lifelong learner, creative thinker, and problem solver, I’m continually educating myself about this complex business of real estate, the latest technology and trends, and the Jacksonville communities, neighborhoods, homebuilders, schools, properties and relevant pricing that matter to you, my client.

When you have questions or need information, let me be your source, your Realtor—your home insight.


Buying and/or selling a home can be exciting, but it can also be complicated and stressful. And, many life changes may also be happening at the same time! Here’s what I can do to help:

  • Selling a home: from start to close, I’ll stage, market, show, and advertise your home to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, recommend reliable lenders, oversee the inspections, handle necessary paperwork, and supervise the closing.
  • Buying (or building) a home: from dream to reality, whether you want newly built, fixer-upper, or move-in ready, I’ll work hard to help you find your right home, at your right price—and, at no charge to you, the buyer.
  • As your agent, I will always be considerate of your needs and goals throughout the entire real estate process; guiding you through your homeownership transaction with knowledge, thoughtfulness, and the utmost professionalism.

I take a consultative approach, versus a sales approach, and with impeccable communication, integrity, and unfailing attention to detail, I will always strive to exceed your needs.

Bottom line, I’m good at what I do.  And I find Realtor life to be gratifying, meaningful, and very rewarding. I get to blend my hobbies and interests—real estate, design and staging, DIY projects, technology, creative writing, and photography—into my business!


I work in the southern part of Jacksonville—in both Duval and St. Johns counties. From Southside to Mandarin, Julington to Bartram, Fruit Cove to Nocatee, I can help you make the right home buying and selling decisions.

If you’re not quite ready, but know someone who is interested in buying or selling a home, your kind referral would mean a lot to me.

If you are buying or selling a home somewhere other than Jacksonville, I can help you find the right agent. With Coldwell Banker, I have access to a network of over 3000 CB offices around the world.

Contact me and let’s talk about your real estate needs.

Always with your home in sight,


Deanna “Dee” Kassenoff
