"As buyers of a "diamond in the rough," Kelly and her team were ON IT scheduling multiple inspections and facilitating fast follow-up with the reports. They thought of things we wouldn't have, and helped us prioritize what was most impactful in our negotiation. As experienced real estate buyers we appreciate Kelly's thorough action. Buyers can be confident that they are well represented by this team!"

"At every step of decision-making, in preparing the property for market and during the sales process, Kelly was accessible, thorough, and dedicated. The tremendous responsibility of being a trustee with multiple beneficiary interests placed me in one of the most challenging periods of my life and if not for Kelly, I am certain the outcome would not have been as financially successful and personally supportive."
— Deborah Schwartz’s, Co-Trustee, Naomi L. Schwartz Living Trust
"As the trustee, and as a first time home seller, I needed someone who was both knowledgeable about the selling process but also the special aspects of selling an estate property.
Kelly discussed the pricing strategy with me carefully and provided data on comparable properties currently for sale as well as recent sales. The night before the first public open house, we received an offer for the full price and in cash. Kelly wisely counseled me to seriously consider this offer which I did and eventually accepted. She worked effectively with me, the buyer's agent and the buyers throughout the escrow phase. I was impressed with her knowledge of all the procedural and legal details. The escrow closed successfully and ahead of schedule largely due to her skills in this area.
It was a pleasure working with Kelly. She is a seasoned real estate professional and I recommend her without hesitation."

"Kelly represented us both as buyers and sellers of a Santa Barbara Riviera property. She worked tirelessly during what ended up being a very involved purchase of our home. Kelly has excellent negotiation skills, is enjoyable to work with and had our best interest in view at all times.
When it came time to sell our home this Spring, there was no question that we would use Kelly as our Realtor. Due to her extensive knowledge of the market as well as excellent advertising materials, our home sold quickly with multiple offers and for more than the asking price!"
— Stephen and Lene Joy
"Kelly's assistance has been invaluable in navigating the Santa Barbara real estate market. As an out-of-state seller and buyer, I have relied on Kelly to handle all facets of our transactions, and she has done so with great skill and incredible personal service. And she followed that up with incredibly skillful negotiations with a challenging group of sellers to help us purchase an incredible property at a great price."
— Brian Goebel, attorney and retired business owner
"Kelly's knowledge of the Mission Canyon area, and our Montrose Place home in particular, made her the logical choice as agent when time came for us to place the home for sale.
She suggested a listing price, put together a marketing program, conducted an open house for realtors, and we received firm offers at and above the listing price in 4 days! Her analysis of our home and the market proved right on target.
All the steps required in selling a home were completed in a timely manner and closing took place right on schedule. Our description of the entire process is 'seamless'.
Kelly is a professional... on time, thorough, experienced, and very pleasant to work with. Jan and I have built 3 custom homes, numerous commercial buildings, and operated a multi-branch retail company for 30 years. We do know the characteristics of successful people, and Kelly exemplifies them in all ways!"
— Mike and Jan Freeman
"Kelly's professionalism, marketing skills, and knowledge of the area helped me through some challenging moments but I was always confident she would find a solution for every problem.
Selling a home can be a stressful time, but having Kelly hold my hand through the process made it a memorable experience, and I got to know a beautiful person inside and out."
Thank you Kelly!
