TESTIMONIALS FROM PAST CLIENTS “We want to thank you and your team for the exceptional service in selling

our home in such a short period of time, especially during this slow market period. You and your team provided all the marketing for maximum

exposure through sinage in the yard, MAP listing, and all the Internet

listings. As a result, we had 54 showings and sold our home in 45 days with

one client ready to sign a contract in the event the first contract fell through. Each team member provided a specific service from having the necessary documents signed, to advise on the home inspection items, to keeping us

appraised of the progress, to insuring we had an adequate supply of brochures for the showings. Your team did an awesome job in selling our home and we would like to thank you and every member of the team for their hard work

and for their contribution. We will certainly recommend you and your team to anyone thinking of selling their home.” - Ron and Sigrid Gimla

“I worked with Kelly a few years ago when I was ready to buy a house. Being a first time buyer I was in need of a very knowledgeable person. Kelly, was

that and much more. She took the time to explain all aspects of the buying

process to me. She gave me the peace of mind that I needed while looking at

all of my buying options. Kelly was a pleasure to work with and would highly recommend her.” - Candi Linkous

“Kelly is one of the best Realtors out there. She is professional, personal, and

has a very balanced and effective business plan. We wish buying and selling a home were always as easy as Kelly made it.” - Lt Col Brad Magrath
