"Kelli is great! She is ready to help you with every step of the home buying process. Kelli is prompt in responding to your questions and can work through any challenge that may come up. I appreciated her suggestions and consider her a new friend!"

"I have worked with Kelli Ward multiple times to either sell or buy a property. Each time, she was professional, thorough and always available with any questions that I had. I highly recommend Kelli and will certainly refer her to friends and family. Thank you Kelli for providing a smooth and enjoyable selling process!"

"Kelli is fabulous! She is patient, kind, honest, fair, flexible and always on time. Kelli listened to my needs and showed me only the houses I thought I would love while keeping within my budget. She truly cares about her clients - she pushed the seller when she felt certain things weren't 'fair' for me! Kelli Ward exceeded my expectations and will recommend her to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home! I can't wait to invite her over when we are settled! Thank you for making this experience so great!"


"Kelli is the best! She was always on time for appointments and walked us through every step of buying our home. She had answers to every question that we asked and had very helpful suggestions/ideas. She always had a smile and was wonderful to work with! I would highly recommend Kelli to anyone looking to buy a home!"

"Kelli is VERY knowledgeable about the area and the market. Everything was professionally presented from start to finish. Her communication skills are perfect, she always kept me updated and sold my house quickly."

"Kelli was more than we could ask for and a true blessing!! She was thoughtful, knowledgable, and professional throughout our entire time together. She went above and beyond for us! We knew she was always just a phone call away. I would definitely recommend Kelli to anyone looking to buy and/or sell their home."

"I would give more stars if I could!! Kelli helped us to sell our condo and purchase our (dream!!) home. She was always available for questions and really helped guide us through the process to sell and buy a home. Kelli offered a lot of great advice and was patient throughout the process. She always had our best interests in mind and got to know and understand quickly what we wanted so she could help find options we didn't know were available to us."

"Kelli Ward did it all, listed the house and sold the house. She always kept us informed during the entire process, with great follow up. She is very professional and has great knowledge of the real estate market. Her advertising and marketing was spot on, her photos looked great. She always showed up for the appointments on time and ready to sell. She even showed up for the home inspection and the appraisal appointments. We could have not been more pleased with our agent. I would recommend Kelli Ward to help you sell your house over any other agent."

"Kelli is a rockstar. She helped my husband and I find our dream home and made the experience of shopping for a place very enjoyable. As first time home buyers, I felt that she completely had our best interests in mind and went over in detail anything we weren't sure of. She was always on time, quick to respond to emails, and any questions we had, including setting us up for last minute viewings. I can't put into words how awesome she is and how lucky we were to get her as our realtor."

"Kelli has been fantastic!! Her knowledge of the many areas we have viewed in search of our new Wi homesite has been invaluable! Her expertise of the “real estate maze” has been an extreme source of comfort. Kelli has been with us ever step of the way on our journey...making suggestions and providing us with great insights.
She is also representing us as we list our Illinois home of 35 years.
We highly recommend Kelli to anyone looking to buy or sell in Illinois or Wisconsin as she is always willing to go above & beyond, keeping the needs of her clients as the highest priority.
We view Kelli not as our Realtor...we consider her as family.
This highest of praise is well deserved.

"My husband and I have been using Kelli Ward for both the selling of our current home and also helping us find a new place. Not only is she extremely knowledge about the entire selling and buying process but she very well knows the areas we are looking for a new home. Kelli has also been so patient with me as I have been so undecided about so many homes we have looked at. And in the end when we decided to build new, she also stuck with us trying to locate land on which to build and helped with the finding and comparing builders for us, and giving us factual information about what to look for. She has never made us feel like we are only a customer, but more like a good friend in the entire process. I’m so happy we worked with Kelli during this fun but also stressful project. She really helped me through the emotional time this has personally been for me and I’m truly grateful."

"Kelli helped us find our first home and we couldn't have had a better experience. She took time to understand what was important to us, provided her expertise in the neighborhoods and property values, and did an amazing job answering all of our questions. She is extremely detail-oriented and follows through on all her commitments quickly - the definition of professional. She referred our lender, home inspector and attorney who were all excellent. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor, especially first-time homebuyers!"

"I was the executor of my dad's estate and I hired Kelli to sell my childhood home. Kelli made an emotional and stressful situation much easier for me and my siblings. She gave great advice throughout the process. As a result, we were able to sell the home quickly. I couldn't be happier with how things turned out and I would highly recommend Kelli to anyone! She truly is an expert in what she does and goes above and beyond to support her clients!"

"Kelli was such a pleasure to work with. Not only did she find us our dream home, she made sure that we got it. Kelli was truly an advocate for us every single step of the way, from showing until closing and we are grateful for all of her hard work and support. We are first time homebuyers and were very anxious. Kelli was extremely supportive and guided us through the process like the true professional that she is. We would highly recommend Kelli to anyone in need of a realtor!"

"Kelli was absolutely amazing to work with!! She was a wealth of knowledge and found us a home almost immediately. She offered great advice and guidance and was available to us the whole process. I would recommend Kelli to anyone and everyone looking for a home on the North Shore. Thank you Kelli!"

"Kelli is always great to work with and very helpful through the whole process!"

"I loved working with Kelli! She is a true professional and did her best to sell our house. It actually sold before it even got listed in the MLS. Great job Kelli!"

"Kelli Ward did an outstanding job as our realtor in aggressively pursuing the sale of our property. At times this was a difficult task due to several hardships along the way however her professionalism ranked supreme and resulted in a successful sale to a wonderful family that will cherish this property for years to come as my family once did. I highly recommend Kelli Ward to any client, whether selling or buying property. Her endless hours of hard work will result in a successful outcome for all involved."

"Words are hard to find in describing how thankful we are that Kelli Ward came into our lives! From day 1 she went over and above everything that we were expecting. From previewing homes for us to taking avid notes on what was important to us to holding our hands through difficult offers, sellers and listing agents - she was truly a gem to work with. HIGHLY recommend her to anyone selling or buying! I think the most important thing when working with a realtor/broker is communication. Kelli always took the time to explain any and every question we had no matter how silly it was. Honestly by the time we found our "dream house" she almost felt like family - so much our 2 year old daughter still talks about "Kulli." We cannot thank her enough!"

"Just an absolutely wonderful person to work with. Knew the areas, knew what we wanted. When we look to move out in a few years, she will get a call from me for sure!"

"Kelli is so great and helpful! She is always there for any request of information. She plans, prepares and considers for customer proactively. She helps me to get everything done so well less than 2-months from beginning to closing!"

"If I could give this broker more stars than 5....I would do it! Your company is lucky to have Kelli."

"We are so thankful to have Kelli Ward as our realtor. She is a wonderful person who understands very well the needs of her customers, her professionalism and ethic gave us confidence during all the buying process. She always demonstrated passion for her work and high levels of customer satisfaction. Thanks Kelli for being the kind of person you are."

"I can't say enough positive things about Kelli! She was patient, understanding and full of helpful information throughout the entire process. When I finally found my dream house she was genuinely excited for me. I would recommend Kelli to anyone looking to buy or sell their home."

"Kelli was awesome from start to finish. I felt like I was number one with her. She always got back to me whenever I called, texted, or emailed right away. I recommend her to all my friends and family. She made the sale of my house a hassle free experience."

"Kelli Ward is amazing!!! We had quite a few bumps along the road on our path to finding our dream home as first time homebuyers. We got pretty panicky a few times but, no matter the issue or concern, Kelli always swooped in like Superwoman to our rescue and helped us resolve any issue with grace and an enviable sense of calm. She also did an amazing job of always keeping us in the loop and she was always easy to reach via email,text, or phone. I don't know what we would have done without her and we feel extremely blessed to have had her as a guide and mentor throughout this entire first time homebuyer experience! We will definitely be referring Kelli and @properties to anyone we know who is looking to buy/sell their home! Thank you, Kelli you are a rockstar!!!!"

"Once again, Kelli went above and beyond to get our town home rented within the time frame we were hoping for. Working with Kelli puts our minds at ease and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy, rent or sell a home! She's the best!"

"Kelli went above and beyond our expectations. Not only did she walk us through the entire process of finding and buying our first home, but she supported us with information, timely communication, and an all around great attitude. She truly made this a great experience, and I've already begun recommending her to others."

"Kelli was beyond exceptional. Her professionalism and thorough, deliberate approach could not have served us better. She treated our family with fairness, courtesy, and kindness throughout the entire process, and I would recommend her to any individual that is looking to buy a home."

"We have had the privilege of working with Kelli for several years. She has not only helped us find our first home but also helps us with our rental. Kelli has consistently gone above and beyond to make every transition and contract be successful. We can't thank Kelli enough for all that she has done!"

"Kelli went out of her way to work with me and my niece to sell my townhouse. She is very knowledgeable and gives 110 percent. She goes above and beyond what she has to do.This is the second property I have used her services. I would highly recommend her."

"Kelli did an outstanding job of guiding us through the process of selling our home! We would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor. She is very personable and presents herself in a professional manner at all times. It was a very enjoyable experience to work with her."

"Kelli was always available and attentive. We found a house right away and she did great at negotiating our price and staying on top of the deal. That seller backed out and we lost the house. Kelli really helped get us through that situation and disappointment. She stuck with us strong through a couple months of searching and searching, now helping us through discouragement. We found our dream house and everything went perfectly. Kelli impressed me how she really stayed on top of things and worked for us and made sure everything was in line and ready for closing. We were completely pleased and now completely happy in our new home!"

"Our Broker was very professional. She helped us find the perfect home! She took the time to answer questions and look into any delays. Gave explanations and communicated in a very professional manner. She is also very kind and friendly, easy to talk to and genuinely cared."

"Kelli is extremely knowledgeable and professional. Kelli helped my husband and me buy our home, and has also assisted us in renting our town home three times. I wouldn't keep asking her to work with us if we didn't have an excellent experience every time!"

"Kelli was great to work with on the purchase of our new home! She was timely in responding to all our calls and emails and gave us great advice when we were unsure how to proceed. Anyone who chooses Kelli as their realtor should know they are choosing an experienced realtor who will look out for your best interests!"
