Hello, my name is Kelly Donovan and I am a licensed Realtor with @properties - Lake Geneva. I have lived in Kenosha county for over 25 years, and have an abundance of knowledge of this, and surrounding areas.
Growing up in a military family, I learned from a young age that honesty and perseverance are some of the best qualities a person can possess. I strive everyday to provide an honest and straight forward experience for my clients, and I won't stop working for you until you are in the home you've been dreaming of.
Some areas of expertise include:
Primary and Secondary Homes : Kenosha, Racine, Salem, Bristol, Twin Lakes, Lake Geneva, Burlington, Wheatland, Union Grove, Genoa City, Linn, and Pleasant Prairie.
First Time Home Buyers : Purchasing your first home can be very exciting and very scary. It is my goal to make it exciting and FUN. Let me worry about the details, while you enjoy the process.
Investment Property : Whether you are looking to purchase rental properties or renovation projects, it helps to have an agent who understands the bottom line, PROFIT.
Education is very important to me, and as the market changes, I will always continue to learn and grow. I participate in continuing education courses, and also attend several seminars each year. I also have a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Wisconsin - Parkside.
I look forward to working with you, and I'm excited to help you start the next chapter of your life, wherever that may be.
Clients are saying:
"Kelly didn't stop looking until we found a home we fell in love with! We just moved in and we absolutely love our house. Our price range had little supply but tons of demand so patience was key for us. My husband also has a weird work schedule but Kelly always made showings work for us. We are so glad we didn't settle. Thanks, Kelly!"
"I have been transacting both residential and commercial real estate for over 15 years. I strongly feel that Kelly Donovan is the most tenacious, patient and thoughtful representative I have had the pleasure to work with. I was upside down on the sale so it was painful enough but she helped me navigate the best way to work through the situation as I am not familiar with the Wisconsin market. She helped me find contractors for home repairs, kept an eye on the house and advised me when to make repairs and when to hold. I know her commission on this sale was not large as the house did not sell for a high price in an absolute sense but that did not effect her willingness to assist me. I realize the realty business may have less than a stellar reputation due to a few bad apples but I feel Kelly elevates the entire industry with her professionalism and pure decency. In case the aforementioned is not clear enough, I cannot recommend Kelly Donovan highly enough to anyone looking to sell or buy real estate. Kelly, thank you for ALL you have done, you're the best."
"I will be the first to admit, I was a pretty "demanding" client as my husband and I were in a time crunch for finding a home to purchase, but Kelly handled our needs with grace and efficiency. We had a lot of questions about the home-buying process and about each property we looked at that Kelly was able to answer (very honestly) right away or know her resources to get us the correct answer ASAP. Her compassion to our difficult situation and her honesty as we looked at each potential property was very refreshing as a couple on the market for the first time to make a HOME for our family. We looked at a couple properties multiple times and went through more than one inspection which Kelly was always available for. Her genuine excitement for us when we finally closed after a roller coaster of ups and downs the months prior made the entire process a great experience. She has even checked up on us and our home improvements months after we closed! We highly recommend Kelly Donovan and we will definitely be working with her again in the future."
"Kelly is the most caring Realtor I have ever met. She pays attention to every last detail up until closing. Without her help and guidance through this deal we would have been lost. I would recommend her to anyone. We will only use her as our realtor for all our future transactions!"
"Kelly was an absolute blessing throughout our home buying experience. My husband and I used Kelly as our realtor to sell our home and buy a new one. She priced our home perfectly and it sold in 3 days. Our buying process with her was seamless. She took care of every situation before we ever even knew it existed. We would use Kelly again in a heartbeat and will be referring her to everyone we know."
