From the many Testimonials my clients use the following adjectives; honest, compassionate, knowledgeable, available, and tough negotiator. I have built my business from the ground up based on referrals from my past clients. I am always keeping that in mind so I am not a one-time transaction agent. My driving passion is helping people find houses, making them into homes and making a life-long relationship. I am empathetic toward your wants and needs. I will provide whatever assistance you need to get through the home sale or purchase process. I am laser focused on creating an outstanding, seamless and successful experience for all clients. 

Motto

I firmly believe that people want to be served—not sold! My teaching career taught me to be patient in explaining things … in listening … and in doing a great deal of preparation. My business is the heart of a teacher not a salesman.

  • It's not about the problems it's all about the solutions.
  • Words that I think identify my sales style are relentless and dedicated.
  • I have the tenacity to make things happen.
  • I loved to teach, and I love to sell real estate.
  • I want to help people through the scary process of making one of the biggest investments of their lives.
  • Be a guide for the real estate journey

Real Estate Experience

I have built a new home and remodeled several other homes. I know what it feels like to be both a buyer and a seller. I also own an investment property. With my 19 years as a professional realtor I serve a full range of clients both buyers and sellers. I would be happy to listen to you and make a plan to answer your real estate needs. Not just a realtor but a realtor with life and real estate experiences.

"We had been house hunting for nearly 5 months before switching agents to Kelly based on several of our friends recommendations. In hindsight, this was by far the best decision we could have made. When we finally found what we were looking for, Kelly literally dropped everything and put together an offer letter in under 30 minutes. There was no way I was going to let this house slip away and Kelly made sure that it didn’t.

Kelly is insightful and patient; not pushy and full of buzz words. She kept us on track and wasn’t afraid to remind us of what our initial goal was, or other important considerations such as school quality or highway noise. She is also highly respected by her peers. We had a bad experience with our previous agent and our attorney recommended finding a new agent. When we told him who we were going with the first thing out of his mouth was “I’m so happy to hear that. Love, Love, Love, Kelly! You’re absolutely in great hands.” He was right, we were."

"I can’t say enough about Kelly. Her knowledge about the area, her willingness to work with me and the items that came up through the process. Kelly helped me buy the home then sell it when changes came about in my life. Kelly is a true professional and top notch! Thank you for everything Kelly"

"We can't say enough great things about working with Kelly! She was incredibly patient with us as we searched for our first home. Kelly was great at keeping our priorities in front of us and is very knowledgeable of the Fox Valley area. She went above and beyond to get us into the perfect home! Thank you Kelly!!"

"Kelly kept us appraised of current comps and activity in the neighborhood. Helped us in putting the house in the best position to sell. Her client orientation is consistently at a high level. Truly demonstrated an understanding of client needs and wishes. Allowed her to anchor her suggestions to client needs which added quality and value to the selling process from initial inquiry, to negotiation, through closing."

"Kelly was very patient with us when viewing homes. She understood early in the process what it is we were looking for, and guided us when inquiring about homes we wanted to view. She was accommodating with our schedule and meeting us separately then taking either of us back to the same home later on. She had great input on how to view the possibilities in homes when we asked, and tolerated our sense of humors very well. We would highly recommend her."
