WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING FROM OUR SELLERS

I cannot say enough good things about Kelly and her team. From the beginning, the process was easy and the plan was well laid out. We were impressed with all the resources they had to offer and how they were ready to address the changes made necessary by Covid-19. Communication was on point. They were very proactive with information and we were never left wondering what was going on. They listed our house on March 19th and we closed April 24th! If you need a realtor, Kelly Allen + team is the way to go. F I V E stars! -Lisa

We enjoyed working with Sara so much that we used her twice. On both occasions we were not in the area for the listing and sale of our home(s), and both times Sara took the stress out of not being there by handling everything from staging and prep to post-inspection repairs. We are so thankful to have had Sara to help us! -Eric

My husband and I recently purchased a home with Jennifer Burns of Kelly+Co as our real estate agent. We cannot say enough about Jennifer's expertise, guidance, professionalism, and patience. She made time for us to tour homes at our convenience, and there were certainly many days of touring before we found our dream home! Her expertise in strategies to "win" your home is unsurpassed! You will not regret working with Jennifer and Kelly+Co!!

-Deborah

The home selling process is a stressful one, but I'd happily go through it all over again with Angie and the Kelly + Co team leading the charge. They had everything so buttoned up from start to finish. A deadline was never missed and a question never went unanswered. Angie and her team know exactly what they're doing and are also so nice and fun to work with. Thank you Angie for helping us secure the perfect offer for our home!

-Caroline

We adore every single person that works for Kelly+Co, they are all top-notch professionally and personally! We have bought 2 homes and sold 1 home with them, and they break the mold of anything about the home buying process / home-selling process being terrible ... it’s a breeze no matter what side of the coin you’re on if you have this team on your side! -Payton

I literally cannot say enough about the team at Kelly+Co! From the minute we met with them, they treated us like family and never stopped...and it’s been 2 years since we bought our house! (Thanks Evelyn and crew for all the great events you still include us in!) We worked with Kelly Allen and she is soooo dedicated and crazy knowledgeable about EVERYTHING! This team has a way of making each person feel like they are their only client and will truly listen to all of your wishes/needs/preferences (with zero judgment!) and not give up until they help you find that-no matter how long it takes! These are people you can completely trust, which is unfortunately somewhat rare these days. The communication and assistance from their entire office team during the actual transaction time was also really stellar! -Lauren

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 1. How long have you been in residential Real Estate sales? Experience is critical in this market. Contracts can fall through for dozens of reasons. Having someone on your side who has been selling homes long enough to have successfully navigated through these roadblocks is essential to a successful home sale and purchase. We have been in the business for more than 22 years and collectively have over 66 years of experience that we put to work for our clients. 2. How will you help me win in a multiple offer situation? This is so important! We have a proven strategy for helping our buyers WIN when they aren’t the only buyers that want a house! It all begins with predicting which homes will get multiple offers and then interviewing the listing agent to learn what’s important to the sellers. Then, we can come back to you and develop a strategy that gives easy wins to the sellers while also getting you exactly what you want- the house at the right price. Oh, and other agents like to work with us so that helps our buyers too! 3. How will you help me buy a house and sell a house at the same time without becoming homeless? Watch this video!

4. Tell me things that make you different from other Realtors and how will they help me? We recognized the lack of transparency and abundance of complacency in our business. Also, there is so much waiting...waiting for homes to come on the market...waiting for a buyer to like our listings. Waiting isn’t something we’re good at. We decided to change the way real estate is being done by: Finding homes that AREN’T listed for our Buyers to see. There is and always has been “coming soon” inventory or people who would sell but just haven’t pulled the trigger yet. We find those people for our buyers. Here’s how: youtu.be/8rnKrRSfKZw Communicating...A LOT. We provide transparency throughout the listing and buying process through constant communication and updates. If you’re our seller, then you receive weekly updates with what we’ve done to sell your home, what we’re going to be doing to sell your home and what’s happening in the market that could affect you. Integrating the newest technology in addition to good old fashioned networking with other agents and people in our community. 5. How will you educate me about the current market? And What can I expect at our first meeting? We love educating our clients about the market! First we’ll let you know what kind of market you’re buying into - a Buyer’s market, a Seller’s market or a Balanced market. Next, we’ll show you how long homes are typically staying on the market and how much you can expect the seller to negotiate. Finally, we’ll compare different areas or schools districts you are shopping in and develop a strategy for winning in each one! Watch this video: 6. How and how often will you be communicating with me? We want to communicate the way YOU want to communicate. Many of our clients like text messages and emails. Lots still like a phone call. We’ll be communicating with you several times per week if not each day!
