Overall 5 star rating out of 141 reviews


"Kay is an outstanding realtor. I was very impressed with her mastery of all facets of the process. She went above and beyond to ensure a successful closing."


"It is my pleasure to give Kay a 5 star review. She is a skillful, dedicated professional who goes the extra mile for her clients. With her guidance and support, our house went under contract in 2 days. Kay knows what she's doing, and she gets it done right! If you're buying or selling in Mundelein or Libertyville, you should consider working with her."



"Kay was highly recommended by a friend of mine. It made the decision easy to bring Kay to our house to discuss her sales and previous achievements and after that conversation, it was one of the easiest decisions to lock her in as our agent. Kay made the sale of our house completely stress-free and blew us away with the value of our home. With her help we showed the house a few times and before we knew it was sold."



"Kay Phillips was amazing! She was recommended to us by a friend who had used her as well. We knew immediately after meeting her that she would be awesome to work with.

Kay was very helpful in looking for homes with us. She was accommodating of our schedule and was able to book showings for houses quickly. Although she was undoubtedly working with other customers, she was always so quick to help, that we hardly realized we weren't the only ones.

Kay was also great with our kids and family that wanted to be involved with the house hunting process. She involved everyone, was incredibly friendly, and was so knowledgeable in answering everyone's questions. My daughter will definitely miss "Auntie Kay."

In terms of selling our house, she was very quick. She explained everything clearly, and helped us stage our house so that it looked so great we wondered why we were moving in the first place. When all was said and done, the house sold the first day it was on the market, thanks largely to her help. I would definitely recommend Kay Phillips to others looking for a realtor."



"Kay Phillips was absolutely wonderful! She walked my wife and I through the whole buying/selling process and made it easy for us. I have no doubts she got us the best possible deal on both the house we sold and the one we bought. She was patient with us and kind and I consider her a good friend now. I could not recommend her more."



"Kay puts our family needs first! We were encouraged and welcome to bring our infant to every appointment and showing with a guaranteed babysitter and home expert! The process was done at our own pace and overseen with love! If you are looking for someone to help your family find the right place Kay and her team are who we reccommend! She helped us find not one but both of our dream homes!
Happy house hunting!
The Kaar’s"



"Kay Phillips was excellent in helping us find our forever home! She was consistent in her communication with us and she always responded promptly to our questions whether it was by phone, email or even text. Kay guided us through the whole process of buying a house and explained every step in a way that we could understand. She advocated for us in order to get us the best deal possible. Kay was always positive and cheerful and treated us like family. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to buy!"



"I cannot recommend Kay Phillips enough! As first-time home buyers we needed a little extra hand holding. Kay was very sensitive to this and explained every step along the way. She is very well connected in the real estate and home improvement industries which helped us tremendously. Every person she referred us to was wonderful. She has an excellent knowledge of the areas we were looking in and knew all of the neighborhoods well. Most importantly; Kay was incredibly responsive to our needs and patient with us during our search. We spent a long time trying to figure out what we were looking for. She was with us every step of the way and we never felt any pressure from her. She truly wanted to make sure that we found the perfect home for us. I know Kay is busy, but we honestly felt like her only clients. She answered our calls, emails, and texts immediately. When our home went on the market, she had us inside within four hours because she had a feeling this was the one for us. We are so happy in our new home and feel beyond lucky to have found Kay!"



"I am very grateful to Kay Phillips, because she helped me buy my first home. I had been looking at local real estate for months and had learned that if I wanted to get a good property at a good price - I would need to act fast.
Kay understood my sense of urgency when I showed her a property that was in the the exact area I was most interested in, (relatively) new construction, seemed to be undervalued and also met several other criteria that I had. She immediately started trying to arrange a showing with the selling agent (who was not the most responsive). If she had not been as insistent as she was, the property may have slipped away. Even though I was certain I wanted to buy it after seeing it - Kay insisted she look at comparable for me. All in all she was very kind, positive, enthusiastic, patient, responsive and definitely represented my interests! Thank you Kay!"



"Kay helped make my first time home buying experience easy going. She was attentive and was always available to answer my questions throughout the process.

Beyond that she was a pleasure to interact with and emits good vibes. 10/10 would buy with her again!"



"We were new to the entire home buying process. Having Kay available to guide us through everything from multiple showings to several offers and negotiations was great. We could not have asked for a more knowledgeable, honest and truly fun agent to work with. with. We look forward to working with her again in the future."



"I have encountered many a real estate agent in my 67 years, but never have I met one like Kay. She raises her profession to an art form. She did not just sell us a house but guided us to the perfect place for us. Within 48 hours of putting our own place on the market we had nearly a dozen showings and several offers. We sold the place in less than three days at a price beyond our expectations.

Throughout the process, Kay educated us, calmed our concerns, performed with experienced professionalism, and cared for us as persons, not just customers. You might find an agent out there as good as Kay, but I doubt that you will find anyone better.

"It was wonderful working with Kay while selling our house. She is an excellent communicator and stayed on top of things. She walked us through various steps of the process patiently. I strongly recommend her as a realtor."



"Kay is the best! She was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and everyone she recommended to help in the other aspects of the home buying process was great as well! I will recommend her to anyone I know that is buying or selling their home. Anyone who chooses Kay will not regret it"



"Kay is an absolute pro! Loved every minute of working with her. She was very helpful with renovation ideas specific to the market. She was very patient waiting for the renovation to be complete. And sold it nearly instantly."



"Kay is the consummate professional; she is knowledgeable, proactive, and always accessible. She offered valuable suggestions for marketing our house, pricing it accurately, which resulted in many showings and and a successful offer within 3 months. She was persistent in obtaining helpful feedback from showings and always shared her advice with us. Kay was recommended by a friend and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone."



"Kay is, in a word, "great". She listened closely to my needs and immediately helped me find potential properties. She is very responsive to questions and always had honest answers. Her recommendations for lenders and attorneys were excellent and I always felt fully supported throughout the home buying process. You can trust Kay to take care of you!"



"Kay is the best realtor ever. She had been on top of everything. I would highly recommend Kay. She has become a dear friend."



"Simply put, Kay is phenomenal! She is always super cordial and clearly knows her stuff. She is willing to work nearly all hours of the day to appease seemingly endless whims of her clients whether you're buying and/or selling. I can't thank her and her team enough and I would certainly use her again should the need arise. Thank you thank you thank you!"



"Kay is nice and friendly. We have very good experience working with her. She has good knowledge on the local real estate market. She was very responsive to questions and issues when helping us buy the house. Kay has excellent contacts; she knows the right people to get the work done quick and accurate. Thank you so much Kay!"



"My husband and I worked with Kay in finding our first home, and she was absolutely fantastic. She is extremely supportive, professional and knowledgeable, and was a real asset to us in the buying process. We felt incredibly comfortable running our questions by her, and she always answered quickly and with a lot of patience. She also knows a good deal about the area and contacts for a variety of home services. She truly had our best interests at heart and worked hard to get us a good home and a fair deal.
Beyond being a great agent, Kay is simply a wonderful person, and that makes working with her that much better."



"I thought selling your home was supposed to be stressful?! With Kay Phillips and @Properties it was anything but.

Not only did Kay sell our townhouse in the first day, but she did it for the price we were looking for. Kay's advice on staging, the high-quality photos, and marketing backing of @properties made this entire process care-free.

If you are looking for a hard-working professional that is fully committed to serving you the client, then Kay Phillips is for you. We would use Kay again without question and recommend her services to any family or friend."



"Kay is the consummate realtor- very knowledgeable, caring, communicative and genuine!"



"Kay helped us buy our first home. Later, when it was time to move into a larger house, we immediately turned to her, and once again had wonderful experience. She helped us with every aspect of buying a new house and selling our old house; we never doubted that she was on our side, had our best interests at heart, and really knew what she was doing. We love out house and don't want to move. But, if we ever do, we'll turn to Kay first!"



"Kay was absolutely fantastic. We were new to the home buying process and having an experienced agent like Kay was such a great help. She guided us through several different transactions and always gave us her honest opinion. Kay was always available for questions, viewings and even gave us design advice when needed it. We look forward to working with her in the future and we can't imagine working with anyone else."



"Kay was a pleasure to work with in the sale of our home. She is highly professional, a good marketer, and made a few key suggestions to enhance the appeal of our home. She responds quickly to calls/emails and will work hard for you to sell or buy a home. On top of that, she is a nice person, and you will enjoy getting to know her."



"Couldn't have asked for a better agent as a first time home buyer. Kay was always available to help me with all my questions so I never felt uneasy about the whole process.

Highly recommend if you're new to home buying!"



"A very good experience"



"It was a great pleasure to work with Kay. Every step of the way she goes above and beyond. This was a long distance sale and Kay succeeded with every challenge thrown her way. Kay is by far, the hardest working realtor I"



"Kay Phillips was excellent in helping us find our forever home!

Kay made the sale of our house completely stress-free and blew us away with the value of our home. With her help we showed the house a few times and before we knew it was sold."



"Kay is extremely responsive, didn't seem like I was ever waiting for a response. Even with last minute additions of houses to tour Kay handled our requests and made the arrangements no matter if it was early in the morning or late at night. She was very knowledgable about the housing market for the areas we were looking in. She made my family feel at ease in the whole process. My daughters adored her and she was always very excited to see them too."



"She was very knowledgeable about the market and sold my home within a week at almost my asking price. I would refer her to anyone that needs a relator"



"Thank you so very much Kay for your incredible expertise, professionalism, honesty, patience and perseverance with our move and transition to North Carolina. We am honored to have met you and have worked with you. You work for a TOP NOTCH company and @Properties has a TOP NOTCH realtor. It was comforting that you had such familiarity with the area and your enthusiasm for your work reassured us that we were in good hands with you "at the wheel"! God Bless you!!"



"Very happy with the transaction. Kay works extremely hard to please her clients. Would definately reccomend to my friends and family. Thank you!"



"Kay is absolutely amazing! She was referred to me by a close friend in North Carolina to assist us with our move to Illinois! She assured me that Kay was the best and she wasn't kidding! She was always there to answer any of my questions, no matter how random, and was extremely knowledgable of the area! She definitely made our move so much easier an I would highly recommend her to all of my family and friends! KAY IS THE BEST!"



"Kay markets a sale like no one else and knows there is a real benefit to doing it and doing it right, yet also knows it's a cost of doing her business, not necessarily the seller's. I'm confident the photographs and staging of my house sold it and she rolls a pro photographer into her commission. I've not heard of that, but it's a great tactic. We sold in a couple days what I fully expected would take months. Couldn't be more pleased with Kay, her team, and their results. Don't hesitate to sign with her, you'll not regret it! Thanks Kay!
I also looked to buy with Kay and enjoyed that process as well as she knows her stuff and was more than willing to go wherever and whenever I wanted. My not buying was not to do with Kay at all. She worked very hard to find the right place for me, the world just didn't want me to buy!
Some day I will and Kay will be my go-to in Illinois!!"



"Kay was very organized, knowledgeable, and upfront about factors involved in selling our house. Our house was not an easy sell. It was well maintained but was an older home on 3/4 acre and faced a busy road. Kay did an outstanding job of staging our house, even bringing in her own items. The pictures online were extremely attractive. She proactively pursued every avenue of marketing and followed up actively on every showing. We had two previous realtors who brought people through but could not close a deal either through lack of experience or personal effort. Kay possessed both experience and effort. Her e-mail address is right-on when it says "Kay Can Sell". She did for us and within a small amount of time compared to the length of contract with each of our other two realtors."



"Kay was an excellent resource as a first time home buyer. We had very specific needs and desires for our house and everything went perfectly! She's very kind and easy to work with!"



"Kay is awesome! In one year she listed and sold my home, found me a rental. Kay knew that I really wanted to own, so she continued to show me places that she knew would interest me. I closed on my new home last week. Kay has a network of people in different specialties ready to assist her to make deals go as smooth as possible. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy, sell, rent, or find renters. She gets the job done."



"Caring, dependable and really on her A game. A true asset to this company and a gem when I have experienced the worst. Thank you Kay, I could not be happier in my new home and I do not normally do reviews but this one I felt I must. Call Kay if you are thinking of buying or selling you won't be disappointed and are getting a true professional."



"We had the pleasure of working with Kay on the sale of our home and are forever grateful for her guidance, enthusiasm, diligence, patience and determination. The task wasn’t the easiest, but from the initial meeting, she was positive and determined. Since it was an older home, there were some challenges along the way and Kay was always understanding of our situation, offering advice when needed and working with the buyers’ agents, always looking after our best interest in order to make see the sale through. Her professionalism and experience was on display whenever she had to be aggressive or accommodating with the buyers, depending on the situation. As I mentioned, this was an older home and Kay’s guidance was priceless when we needed to make some upgrades along the way . She never pressed us to make a move that would set us back, just for the sake of the sale – always putting herself in our position and looking at the big picture. We always felt taken care of and we strongly encourage anyone to work with Kay for any Real Estate need."



"Kay is a delight! She is so knowledgeable and professional. From the moment we met her, my Dad and I felt at ease. She is honest and listens to her clients wants/needs. She also makes sure that her clients are negotiating the best deal. My Dad is sometimes too easy going and Kay politely made sure that he was protecting his interests in the negotiations process. I respected and appreciated that so very much. She was great about communication and keeping us informed all through the process. I would highly recommend Kay to any buyer or seller. You will not be disappointed."



"Kay is nice and friendly. We have very good experience working with her. She has good knowledge on the local real estate market. She was very responsive to questions and issues when helping us buy the house. Kay has excellent contacts; she knows the right people to get the work done quick and accurate. Thank you so much Kay!"



"Kay was my agent for both the purchase and sale of my house. Since it was an older home it took a lot of extra steps to get both transactions completed. She was there every step of the way and often went beyond what was expected to get these deal completed. I would highly recommend Kay"



"From the day we contacted her to the day we sold our home, Kay has been right on task and never hesitated to answer any questions we had. Helped plan the whole strategy of selling my home and the end result was excellent. We didn't even had to go on the market. And with her vast knowledge of the area and the social media platforms she was in, it was very quick and easy. I would definitely refer Kay to any of my friends and family in the future."



"From the moment we met, we were delighted with Kay's command of knowledge as related to real estate, her friendly approach, honesty and understanding of a very tight time frame. Her recommendation of an attorney to represent us in all matters up to and including closing could not have been a better find. She did everything she could to keep the process on track and ensure our goals were met.

She even visited on move-in day with very welcome pizza, bread sticks and soda so we could stay on task. Mission accomplished, thanks to Kay. Our Texas Lady!!

Kay, you're a Doll! Thank you!"



"Kay is absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend working with her. We had a property in Wauconda and listed with another agent who was nothing but problems. We decided to drop him and found Kay. From the get go she assured us she would be able to sell the home and get us the price we needed and that is exactly what she did. She helped us every step of the way, was a great communicator, and a tough negotiator on our behalf. Her knowledge of the market and her professionalism we really unmatched. We sold our home fast and couldn't be happier."



"Kay worked extremely hard for my wife and me. She sold our house for $5,000 above asking with an extreme amount of care and integrity. I highly recommend Kay for selling a house."



"When we needed to sell our home on a tight schedule, we knew right away who we wanted to work with. Kay came highly recommended from friends of ours who had purchased a home in our area a handful of years prior. From start to finish, Kay always made us feel like we were her highest priority with her responsiveness, wisdom, resourcefulness, and charm.

Because our decision to move was relatively sudden, we knew we needed to put in some work to make our house appealing to a buyer. Kay met with us right away to do a preliminary walkthrough and help us learn what a buyer is going to be looking for. Because the extent of the renovations we needed were more than what we could handle on our own, Kay not only gave us a referral to a fantastic general contractor, but she kept in contact with him frequently while he worked in our home. We truly had an ally in Kay with regard to managing the process of getting our home ready to sell, which was particularly appreciated as we had already moved out of state so were not able to be on-site at our home.

When our house was ready to be listed, Kay expertly marketed our house by setting the right price, printing sleek booklets for the house, and through social media. We received the perfect offer within a couple weeks (which we accepted!) but it wasn’t over yet. We still had some items to remedy in the house, both from the buyers’ inspection, but also some last-minute items from the village’s occupancy inspection. So once again, Kay leveraged her relationship with our contractor to ensure everything was completed before our closing with time to spare.

I cannot say enough good things about our experience working with Kay, from her technical and marketing expertise, to her interpersonal skills, and just how she makes you feel good whenever you speak with her. I would highly recommend Kay Phillips to anyone buying or selling a home!"



"Kay is the real deal and was a huge asset in the selling of our home. Our uncertainties due to inexperience with the real estate market were quickly diminished by Kay's expertise. She is knowledgeable, energetic, supportive, and very responsive. You are in solid, capable hands when you hire Kay to represent your interests. She is considerate and professional at all times, and her positive energy and attitude are much needed and appreciated during such an important life changing decision and detailed process. Kay provided valuable guidance in the listing, pricing, and staging of our home. We look forward to working with Kay for all of our future real estate needs."



"Kay helped us to find our home. She is Very responsive and perfectly understood of her customers needs!! She follows though on any aspect of he purchase process providing honest guidance!! We totally recommend her!"



"Well today is the beginning of our next life event. The packers come this morning to begin packing our life up in boxes. The boxes will all be loaded on the moving van tomorrow and we close on our home on Thursday. But this post is not so much about that as about the wonderful, caring, professional, talented lady, Kay Phillips who made this go as smoothly as it has.

We first met Kay in 2010 at a home Open House in our neighborhood. We spoke with her and found out that she is also from Texas. So of course Frank's ear's perked up immediately. After that any time that we discussed improvements on our home Frank would check with Kay to see if it would have a good return. She always gave us her professional opinion which we valued as we begin to get our home ready to put on the market in a few years as well as enjoy it while we were still here. So when it came time to list there was no question that we would engage Kay to represent us as we put our house on the market. But she didn't just list it. In February she came over and gave us the information that we needed it to stage our home. That input was invaluable. Then as we got closer to listing she returned and helped us with placement of furniture and provided other suggestions for staging.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention her marketing strategy and the marketing materials for our home. Our house never looked better. She and her firm @properties did an amazing job creating and distributing these materials. An Open House was scheduled and our home sold within three days of listing.

In closing I would recommend Kay if you would like to work with a top notch realtor. You will not be sorry. My only advice to you is to be ready for your home to sell. Kay will get that job done sooner rather than later.

Kay, it is with heartfelt thanks for your expertise in guiding Frank and I through this very stressful process. You helped to make it a pleasant experience. You are truly the best Real Estate professional in Lake County! We will keep in touch through Facebook."



"Kay helped us to purchase a property in the Lake Z. area. The purchasing process took a bit longer than we expected, as we are relocating from another city. We knew nothing about the city when we started to look around. Kay is very knowledgable about the market and area. She is always responsive, and communicate with us the pros & cons regarding the property and locations.

She works very hard, and also important, very wise. In the negotiation process, she shows her mastered negotiation skills, which helps the whole process to move smoothly. Now we are able to sit in the new place and write this review for her. We would like to refer her to any of our friends needs the help here. Five Star!"



"We bought and sold homes with Kay in Mundelein. She is knowledge, and extremely hard working. She priced our home well and it sold quickly. She also helped us find a house that matched the needs of our family."



"We bought our first house with Kay. Now we've bought our second house with her and are selling our first house with her. She is very knowledgeable, professional, kind, and fun. She will do everything in her power to meet your needs. We love Kay!"



"Kay was an absolute joy to work with. My wife and I were in the market for our first house and Kay was recommended to us by some good friends who had currently worked with her to find THEIR first house. From day one Kay was professional, knowledgeable, and friendly, and continued to be a phenomenal resource no matter what the question was. Need a lender? She has some great recommendations. Inspection? She knows a guy. Need a bite to eat after a showing? She knows the best dives in the area. She led us through every step of the process and told us when she thought we were getting a good deal, when she thought we could find better, etc. She very clearly had our best interests in mind. I could go on for a long time about the benefits of working with Kay and I would recommend her wholeheartedly."



"What more can you say when a broker sells your home in the first day for the price you wanted!

Kay Phillips is a true professional from the first moment we met her. Before walking in the door Kay knew exactly how she was going to sell our townhouse, in what time period, and for what price. Everything she stated in our initial meeting came true. Her advice on staging, the high-quality photos, and the marketing backing of @Properties all made this a very easy and stress-free process.

Kay was always accessible morning, noon, and night. She put her clients first and that was evident in her passion and commitment to our family. While Kay was the best professional we could ask for, in the end we developed a personal friendship.

If you are looking for the best possible home selling experience, then Kay Phillips is the agent for you."



"Kay did an outstanding job. I was 100% satisfied with the service she provided. The whole process was very smooth working with her! She answered questions promptly and gave helpful tips too. Great job!!!"



"We loved working with Kay. As first time homebuyers, we didn't have a lot of experience or knowledge, but Kay never talked down to us. She helped us throughout the process to make smart, well-informed decisions without ever lecturing us. The whole process from initial searches to closing was easy. Kay kept us informed and explained everything so that we understood and weren't overwhelmed and stressed. Kay is always kind, smart, funny, and super responsive. She always got back to us quickly with information - she even responded on her way home from vacation! We can't say enough nice things about Kay - trust us, you want to work with her!"



"I had the pleasure of working with such a professional and knowledgeable real estate agent. Kay, made my first time home buying experience fun and enjoyable! Kay, helped my parents purchase their first home and they recommend I reach out to Kay and I am so glad I did. She answered all my questions and was quick to respond back to me no matter what time it was.

I would recommend Kay to anyone whose looking to purchase a home. I am so glad I got to work with her and even though purchasing a home has it ups and downs, I had Kay by my side and she made the whole experience for me more enjoyable and I was able to relax knowing I had a great realtor who helped me with all my questions."



"My husband and I purchased a home in May 2017 with the help of Kay Phillips. She is simply a fantastic agent. Despite having to move through the home buying process from another state, Kay kept us feeling anxiety-free during the whole process. Kay was incredibly kind and patient, helping us with each step of the buying process. Kay allowed us to make our own decisions, but provided information and context at every step of the way. As first time home buyers, her guidance was crucial to us. She is very knowledgeable about the area and the other professionals pertinent to the home-buying process. She found us the perfect home and helped us to get a great deal--we couldn't be happier.
On top of being an incredible agent, Kay is a great person, which makes working with her a real pleasure."



"We purchased our first home and Kay was really helpful during the entire process. She was very responsive and sometimes I used to receive responses at midnight, Shows her willingness and commitment towards her profession. She guided us through each step of the buying process from placing a offer to final closing. During the whole process she was patient, understanding, motivated, very flexible and finally POSITIVE ATTITUDE to our requirements. TOP NOTCH !!!!

Thank you for all the NURTURE and HELPFULNESS"



"I can't say enough positive things about our experience with Kay. We were searching for almost 20+ months and saw countless properties over that time, over a fairly large area. All throughout the adventure, Kay never lost her positivity no matter how hopeless it became. We went thru several iterations of a budget, the areas/neighborhoods, the size of the home as the months progressed, and Kay took it all in stride and rolled with it.

When it came time to put offers on homes, she used her expertise to find out all the specific details we requested, and many that we didn't. She was always honest with us about home values, trouble signs, negotiations, etc. Never did we get the feeling that she just wanted us to buy a home quickly, get the commission, and go on to the next one. There was a time around the 15-month mark after an offer was accepted and we uncovered some issues during the inspection period that caused us to walk on the deal. Kay completely understood the situation, and did not give it a second thought or try to convince us otherwise. She just rolled with it, and we moved on.

Kay got to know us personally, what we wanted, what we disliked, what our life situations were that drove our house requirements, etc. Her constant & quick communication regarding almost any topic gave us the confidence we needed to keep going forward. I'm glad to say we finally found the house we had been searching for for so long after almost 2 years, and it would not have happened without Kay. I will not be hesitating to refer Kay any of our friends/family that are searching for their perfect home, or those that are looking to put theirs on the market."



"Kay seemed to have the most realistic yet executable plan. I liked how she came up with her plan. It just made sense.

The process was incredibly easy. The hardest detail to come up with was the closing date. That was one helluva outcome.

Simply incredible, if you want to buy or sell in Mundelein, I would gladly send them to Kay Phillips. She was honest and fun to work with."



"Our journey with Kay started a few years ago when she helped us sell our home. We were delighted with our partnership and reached out to Kay to help us find our new home.

Kay absolutely delivered. Throughout the process, Kay knew exactly what we liked and was right on the money when sending us information about houses that had just come on the market. It was a long process of finding our perfect home, but it never felt like an insurmontable task. Kay brought her personality and spirit every day we looked.

Not only did Kay help us find the right house, she encouraged us to expand out of our comfort zone with location. She nailed it!

We are so lucky to have worked again with Kay and I will surely recommend her as an agent to family and friends."



"Kay was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was extremely patient with us and really took the time to ensure that we found the perfect home. Very flexible and understanding. Top notch!!"



"Kay was great during the entire process for selling our home. She was very responsive and helpful with all of the details and kept a positive attitude/outlook the entire time."



"Kay is awesome! In one year she listed and sold my home, found me a rental. Kay knew that I really wanted to own, so she continued to show me places that she knew would interest me. I closed on my new home last week. Kay has a network of people in different specialties ready to assist her to make deals go as smooth as possible. Kay is always available for her clients, if she is with another client she returns calls in a timely fashion. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy, sell, rent, or find renters. She gets the job done."



"I love my broker....Kay works so hard to find just what you need. She is always available for questions, and is great about keeping you updated with information. We hired her to list our home and she helped me find my new place, I feel like I've made a friend not just a business transaction.
Thank you Kay for....everything."



"Kay embodies the qualities of the consummate professional - knowledgeable, excellent communication and negotiation skills, very responsive to a client's questions and/or concerns, great organizational skills, provided timely feedback on showings. I would recommend Kay without reservation for your next real estate transaction."



"This was our second opportunity to have Kay Phillips sell our properties.
The reason we chose Kay is her knowledge of he market; her forthrightness,

She guided us through several different transactions and always gave us her honest opinion. Kay was always available for questions, viewings and even gave us design advice when needed it. We look forward to working with her in the future and we can't imagine working with anyone else."


"Kay is the best realtor ever. She had been on top of everything. I would highly recommend Kay. She has become a dear friend."

"Kay is AWESOME! She fights for you just like it’s her own. A
true partner."


"Kay helped us buy our first home. Later, when it was time to move into a larger house, we immediately turned to her, and once again had wonderful experience. She helped us with every aspect of buying a new house and selling our old house; we never doubted that she was on our side, had our best interests at heart, and really knew what she was doing. We love out house and don't want to move. But, if we ever do, we'll turn to Kay first!"

"Kay was absolutely amazing to work with! Very personable and flexible and knew exactly what we were looking for. She was also very patient with us and took the time to ensure that we found the perfect home! Could not have asked for a better experience."



"My husband and I worked with Kay in finding our first home, and she was absolutely fantastic. She is extremely supportive, professional and knowledgeable, and was a real asset to us in the buying process. We felt incredibly comfortable running our questions by her, and she always answered quickly and with a lot of patience. She also knows a good deal about the area and contacts for a variety of home services. She truly had our best interests at heart and worked hard to get us a good home and a fair deal. Beyond being a great agent, Kay is simply a wonderful person, and that makes working with her that much better."


"From the initial mailing we received from Kay, she was always very professional and knowledgable. Her promotional materials were fantastic. She brought in stagers and we followed their advice. We sold in 4 days for 96% of asking with some special conditions we needed.

I would not hesitate to use her again!"

She is considerate and professional at all times, and her positive energy and attitude are much needed and appreciated during such an important life changing decision and detailed process. Kay provided valuable guidance in the listing, pricing, and staging of our home. We look forward to working with Kay for all of our future real estate needs."



"Kay was amazing from the start. We were first time home buyers with very little knowledge in the process and Kay walked us through every step and made sure we had all questioned answered. A lot of people go into closing with anxiety, I had zero because Kay had taken such great care of us. Kay made us feel as if we were members of her family she took great care of us."



"Simply put, Kay is phenomenal! She is always super cordial and clearly knows her stuff. She is willing to work nearly all hours of the day to appease seemingly endless whims of her clients whether you're buying and/or selling. I can't thank her and her team enough and I would certainly use her again should the need arise. Thank you thank you thank you!"



"Kay Phillips was very organized, knowledgeable, and upfront about factors involved in selling our house. Our house was not an easy sell. It was well maintained but was an older home on 3/4 acre and faced a busy road. Kay did an outstanding job of staging our house, even bringing in her own items. The pictures online were extremely attractive. She proactively pursued every avenue of marketing and followed up actively on every showing. We had two previous realtors who brought people through but could not close a deal either through lack of experience or personal effort. Kay possessed both experience and effort. Her e-mail address is right-on when it says "Kay Can Sell". She did for us and within a small amount of time compared to the length of contract with each of our other two realtors."



"Kay is awesome! In one year she listed and sold my home, found me a rental. Kay knew that I really wanted to own, so she continued to show me places that she knew would interest me. I closed on my new home last week. Kay has a network of people in different specialties ready to assist her to make deals go as smooth as possible. Kay is always available for her clients, if she is with another client she returns calls in a timely fashion. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy, sell, rent, or find renters. She gets the job done."



"Very happy with the transaction. Kay works extremely hard to please her clients. Would definately reccomend to my friends and family. Thank you!"



"We had the pleasure of working with Kay on the sale of our home and are forever grateful for her guidance, enthusiasm, diligence, patience and determination. The task wasnt the easiest. From the initial meeting, she was positive and determined. Since it was an older home, there were some challenges along the way and Kay was always understanding of our situation, offering advice when needed and working with the buyers agents, always looking after our best interest in order to make the sale happen. Her professionalism and experience was on display whenever she had to be aggressive or accommodating with the buyers, depending on the situation. As I mentioned, this was an older home and Kays guidance was priceless when we needed to make some upgrades along the way . She never pressed us to make a move that would set us back, just for the sake of the sale always putting herself in our position and looking at the big picture. I would strongly encourage anyone to work with Kay for their Real Estate Needs. Thanks, Kay!"


"We were in the best possible hands when Kay agreed to help us sell our mother and father's family home. She was appropriately aggressive and attentive at every turn and her knowledge of the market and the mechanics of preparing a house is phenomenal. In addition, her advice to us on the pricing of the home proved to be exactly correct as we had an immediate offer at a price that exceeded our expectations. I would recommend Kay to anyone!"

"For a variety of reasons, I had a very difficult property to sell. I was also coming out of a very difficult rental situation that had resulted in costly litigation, and add to that - I live out of state. Kay Phillips wasn't only the listing agent for my property, she handled numerous and difficult details that included helping me find maintenance professionals for snow plowing and rubbish removal. Kay selected and purchased rugs for the property. She checked in on the house on a regular basis to be sure everything was okay. And Kay kept me informed of all sales activity on the house at least 3-4 times each week. In fact Kay communicated with me constantly, keeping me well informed of all matters and giving me updates on all sales activities. I just could not have handled this challenging home sale without the dedication and professionalism of Kay Phillips. She is absolutely an exceptional realtor."



"I love my broker....Kay works so hard to find just what you need. She is always available for questions, and is great about keeping you updated with information.

When Kay met us at our home, she gave us great advice to get our home priced right and sold quickly. Once we completed the work she recommended for us, we had an accepted offer within a week! Then, when we hit a snag with the purchase of our new home, Kay and her team worked tirelessly to get the problem resolved and get us into our dream home. I'll never forget how hard she pushed for us in the last few weeks before closing. Kay is determined. She is fierce. And she is the one you want on your side for your transactions!"
