From the people we serve...

“On behalf of the South Florida Water Management District, I'm writing this letter to express gratitude to your company, Keystone Field Services, Inc., for a job well done!”

“Over the past two and one-half years your firm was involved in two critically important projects for the South Florida Water Management District. In performing on these two projects, your dedication and responsiveness to the District's needs and continued focus on our success was apparent, and are particularly noteworthy. Your company's resourcefulness, ability to execute, integrity and innovative approach were clearly demonstrated in your work. I was particularly impressed with your skillful implementation of unique process automation and project management methodologies for these projects. These methodologies greatly contributed to the effective management and accurate processing of the large volume of offer packages, check requests, payments and supporting documentation. There were remarkable benefits to the District in your capacity to manage and close such a large number of transactions in a relatively short period of time.”

“The skills and competence of your firm, Keystone Field Services, Inc., to manage and execute complex assignments and deliver significant results, have gained my respect.”

“Please feel free to use my name as a reference for any public and/or private sector projects you are considering. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to any potential client.”

“Again, on behalf of the SFWMD, thank you for a job well done.”

“Keystone Field Services, Inc. provided our company with over four years of ROW support, successfully helping to lead the procurement of industrial, commercial and agricultural properties necessary for the expansion of our Texas and California hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen pipeline systems.”

…“Keystone Field Services helped us save a sinking ship”… “After utilizing another sub-consultant who could not deliver timely statewide zoning and land procurement services, our FDOT/Lodestar Towers Project was in jeopardy of collapse.  I contacted Keystone as they have a reputation for delivering immediate results!  The Keystone staff accepted the challenge and ramped up quickly to help us recover lost production time.   As a result of their ability to succeed where others failed, we were able to recover lost time and deliver a very successful result to our client.  Keystone is an innovative group.  I would not hesitate to recommend their services to any firm that desires a successful land procurement outcome!”

“Keystone staff rank near the top of all the project people I have worked or interfaced with in my 20+ years of experience…they remained mindful of the schedule… the wastewater pipeline project was on an aggressive schedule…they never lost sight of this schedule and always took the necessary steps to make sure activities stayed on course.”

“They displayed excellent attention to detail…carefully thought through the permitting process early in the project and then followed through as appropriate. The result was a smooth real estate process with no surprises when construction was to start.”

“Keystone staff attack problems immediately: they do not procrastinate…Throughout the course of the project, whenever information was needed, it was pursued immediately… never assuming problems would take care of themselves…never trying to shuffle off problems to someone else.” 

“They were very helpful and responsive ...  it was a pleasure working with Keystone on the HYCO-3 wastewater pipeline project… they are professionals in every sense of the word.”

...and from the public we affect

“In addition to the agonizing decision to sell land that has been in my family for generations, equally as agonizing was the impact the sale would have on the 337 families in both fish camps.”

“You brought sanity and organization to a very complicated and emotional move for all of us.   Early on it became obvious that we were dealing with a very competent and capable management team.  Your ability to organize every aspect of the Federal Relocation Act, from monetary payments to a checklist of statutory requirements, into a single database, streamlined the whole process and served as a very efficient check and balance.  During the entire process, you managed to keep the project team very effective, but more importantly, compassionate and sensitive to our individual needs.  We knew we were in good hands!”

“I don’t envy the job you do.  To deal with such a large number of people, many of whom have lived at the camps for over thirty years, and to accomplish it all in such a short period is commendable.  The extra effort taken to assist with outstanding rent collections, garbage management and the many other challenges that presented themselves (including Hurricanes) is sincerely appreciated.” 

“Thank you again for your professionalism, integrity and kindness during this very difficult time.”

“My home was invaded by flash flooding three times in one year. We qualified for a federal retrofit program through a Community Development Block Grant awarded to Leon County. Keystone Field Services, Inc. is the consulting firm that was assigned to handle our case during this very stressful and potentially financially devastating period.”  

“Jan Rybak of Keystone Field Services was our representative. She acted as the intermediary between the federal and county systems as we struggled to gain the full benefits of the program. Throughout the process, Jan demonstrated compassion and care, yet maintained an extremely high level of professionalism. She kept us informed on a regular basis, and was a strong advocate in difficult situations during the retrofit when we needed it most. More importantly, a decade later, we consider Jan a friend.”

“Jan Rybak is an outstanding professional in all sense of the matter. Her company, Keystone Field Services, Inc. provided us with an exceptional service while we were affected by this public works projects.”

“… I would have never thought that my family would be in a better situation than before the buyout, but I’m happy to report that we are thriving.  We now live in a neighborhood that is much nicer than the neighborhood we lived in.  The kids are happy to go to their new school, and my wife and I never imagined that we could own a home.  Thank you for all of your patience, compassion and professionalism during this very stressful time.  We hope that we never have to go through another experience like this again, but if we do, I pray that someone from your firm knocks on the door.”

“You were so kind during this difficult time and I wanted to express my gratitude to your staff… First, I lost my husband, and then I lost my house.  If it was not for the kindness of your staff, I don’t know how I would have gotten through it all… My new home is light and bright, and in a wonderful small neighborhood.  Thanks for making it all possible.”

Very truly yours,

“My wife and I feel so fortunate that you were involved in the purchase of our home.…It has been a very emotional time for us as we had to leave the home we have known for so many years.  Thank you for your kindness and your friendship…and thank you for not treating us like a number – we know that you really cared about us.  Our home is now under construction and it’s a dream come true.  It’s the home I’ve always wanted for my wife.”

“…Thank you for being patient with me as I was traveling back and forth between Haiti and Miami…I know now that the everglades restoration project is very important to the state of Florida, but I never imagined they would need my land.  Even though you were dealing with over a thousand potential purchases, you made me feel like I was the only owner you had.  It was very difficult for me to sell my vacant property under these circumstances. Thank you for your honesty and professionalism throughout the process.”
