Clients are saying:
"Love love a super woman just a wonderful person a key person to anyone KELLY is wonderful â¤ï¸"
"She is a true professional, and an exceptionally knowledgeable realtor. With a touch of class. She has worked harder than any realtor I have ever worked with. I would use her again, without doubt."
"Kelly was very helpful to both my son and his wife and my husband and myself. Aside from setting up convenient times to view the property she was very helpful making recommendations for other professionals for work we needed to be done on the condo. Since we have never been through this process before she was extremely helpful answering questions and guiding us through the process. She answered texts and emails immediately. She was always available when we needed her. She is not only very professional but also very personable. We enjoyed working with her and highly recommend her to anyone needing her services."
"Kelly found me a GREAT tenant for my 1bdrm Gold Coast condo. As an out-of-town landlord, it was very important to me to find a qualified tenant that I could trust. Kelly showed my property to many prospects and helped me review applicants to find the most qualified. I would recommend her to get your property rented out quickly and for a good price to a stable tenant."
"I had the pleasure of working with Kelly again to help me sell my Lakeshore East 2bd condo. Because I live out of town, I appreciated Kelly's constant feedback regarding showings and other activity in the building. We had a rough start because the tenants would not leave for showings which was distracting, but once the unit was vacant, Kelly and her team had the unit thoroughly cleaned, painted, and refreshed. We had it staged and got a few offers before coming to terms with a buyer. We just sold for a new high price in the building for a 2bd in that tier! I'm very happy with the results, and I would recommend Kelly to anyone."
