Clients are saying:
"Kelly is a very professional and knowledgeable Real Estate agent. She was on top of everything and so easy to work with. I am so happy to work with her and will definitely contact again next time I am buying or selling a home."
"Kelly has absolutely redefined the selling / realtor experience for me. The ambition, expertise, and plan were clear from the beginning and she could've simply executed on that to impress me. Yet, Kelly truly went above and beyond and every time I thought I would have a bunch of work to do or stress... I didn't; Kelly managed it. The personal passion in her work that she demonstrated and the commitment she held herself to are inspiring. No joke that it's 5+ star in each of negotiation skills, knowledge, process, and responsiveness. Thank you, Kelly!"
"Kelly provides professional guidance with a friendly manner through all your buying and selling experience. My wife and I have bought a condo, sold the condo and bought / built a house with Kelly in the past 3 years and I couldn’t imagine doing it with any other agent in Chicago."
"Kelly did a tremendous job helping us to buy and sell homes. Through the selling process, she helped us to list our place and market it so that it received maximum exposure and we received multiple offers within one week. She was patient with us in helping us to think through timing and specific steps to prepare our unit for listing. She effectively negotiated on our behalf to coordinate the timing between our two sales to ensure we weren't without a place to live for a period of time. In buying a place, Kelly knew all the right questions to ask, never pushed us and made sure we were very well informed about each of the properties we viewed. She was patient with us taking our time to make this critical decision. Most importantly, she kept us really informed, has a top notch team of partners working with her and was just fun to work with. I would definitely recommend Kelly to any of my friends and family."
"The best experience I've ever had when buying and selling. I have already highly recommended Kelly to friends and family and would not hesitate to work with Kelly again!!"
