We looked at a lot of houses with a lot of different realtors before we found Jessica Klus with The Kelly Group. We immediately felt a connection with her and decided she was our realtor. She has a lot of experience in the Newberg area where we were shopping, is energetic, upbeat, open and honest, on-the-ball and fun to work with! We were in the tough situation of multiple offers on our dream home and she guided us through the entire process fabulously. Even after our offer was accepted she was fabulous getting us through all the inspections and the final hoops we had to jump through. She was so responsive and handled everything beautifully. I really can't say enough about our experience with Jessica and The Kelly Group. Highly recommend! Less ... More

The realtor had quite a difficult task - to find a home 2000 miles away for me when I only had one day to see any options! She was professional, answered all my questions, found properties that perfectly fit my needs, and was able to assess what I would want in neighborhoods, yards, house specifics and price and she provided a lot of extra information about the area, traffic, and what to expect. It was a great experience, even though it could have been horrendous!

My wife and I were exceptionally pleased by our experience with The Kelly Group. Our realtor Jessica Klus was knowledgeable, responsive and friendly. Most of all, it was clear for the start that she had our best interest in mind while we were looking for our first home. We plan to contact her in the future for any and all future property purchases.

Meri Kerikanich of the Kelly Group provided outstanding service while she was helping us purchase a new home. She introduced us to a beautiful neighberhood with a house that met our every expectation. She had done her research well and knew how to negotiate through potential obstacles. She is patient and respects the clients' needs. She is very knowledgeable about the local area and knows how to pinpoint the right house for the clients. We recommend her and the Kelly Group without reservation. Less ... More

Sandy went above and beyond expectation when helping us buy our first home. She showed us only homes in our budget and provided lots of helpful insight and advice. She was prompt in communicating every step of the process with us. During our house search, I was pregnant with our first and my husband was finishing up an intensive program so we were working within a tight time frame. She not only found us the perfect home, but also worked tirelessly to ensure that we were able to purchase it and made us appealing buyers to the homeowner since the market was moving quickly during that time. We will definitely be using Sandy again and can't recommend her highly enough! Less ... More

My personal experience with Meri Kerekanich and the others (behind the scenes) at the Kelly group have only exceeded my expectations. Meri is very knowledgeable in her field and a real pleasure to work with. Her positive attitude, welcoming smile and full dedication to our needs as a home buyer and a home seller has placed us into the house we needed that we have now made a home for our family. I would recommend Meri and the Kelly group time and time again.

My husband and I worked with Sandy Mitchell in 2013 to find a new place. This was a long search but it had a wonderful outcome and we are so happy with our new house. Sandy was there all the way to the end and helped to make this transaction happen. She is very personable and knew what we wanted and that is very helpful when looking to make a change.

Sandy has been a joy both times I have worked with her. We purchased our current farm through her as well as sold a home in Dundee. She was personable & professional in both situations. Extremely easy to work with. She went above and beyond in both cases for us and we highly appreciate her time and effort.

Our first impression was very positive when Sandy Michelle made contact with us prior to our moving from Boise to Newberg. Her knowledge of the housing market was consistent with what we heard from our mortgage company, news reports and our own miscellaneous inquiries. Even with her busy schedule, Sandy made us feel like we were her most important client, meaning she took time with us. She dialoged with us to gain an understanding of what we were looking for and sought out homes and properties to show us. She was professionaly and personally responsive to our needs. She skillfully guided us through a successful negotiation for our house and we couldn't be more pleased. Mark and Mona Botsford Less ... More

Meri Kerkanich was so very responsive from the first phone contact. We called her and asked her to fit us into her weekend schedule, and she cheerfully made that happen. She showed us properties we asked to see plus others that we might consider, and made time the next day (Sunday) to show us the two finalist properties again. Meri gave good advice on the offer we made and faithfully followed each step of the sales process, interceding for us as she needed to to keep it moving along as planned. She documented every step carefully in emails to make sure everyone was informed of what needed to happen next. We cannot say enough good things about our experience with her and the team at the Kelly Group who supported our home purchase. We are very pleased. Less ... More

Meri K is the ultimate professional. She is knowledgeable, detailed, responsive, possesses great business savvy, and is a hoot to work with. She is a woman who has the highest integrity and a huge level of compassion for people. She has keen insight into negotiations and is very aggressive which is very high on our list of characteristics in a real estate transaction. If you like to laugh you will enjoy Meri. We laughed together many times (even though we felt like crying) as our real estate transaction took nearly 8 months to complete and Meri hung with us and supported us every step of the way. We recommend Meri without a hint of reservation to anyone involved in a real estate transaction. She is simply the best! Less ... More

I moved from California to Oregon. I met Meri on an initial tour of the area, she spent time with me showing the area and some houses. She set me up on the company website to look at houses available. When I came back 7 months later with my wife, she drove us around for three days until we found the house we wanted. After that she worked tirelessly at the negotiations, arranged inspections and was able to close the deal before we left in two weeks. I own several houses and have bought and sold others, Meri is one of the best realtors in terms of knowledge, service and attitude I have met. She was also well supported by staff. I would not hesitate to use her services or recommend her to anyone. Less ... More

We had had our home listed for quite some time and it was just not moving. We listed with the Kelly Group and right away we started to get listings. Kelly Hagglund came in had the entire house staged and her group went to work on it. We had a few offers we could not accept for different reasons, but they never gave up trying to get what was best for our circumstances. The Kelly Group entire staff were great at staying in touch and keeping us informed as to all activities on our home. We worked with there finance department on a regular basis going over any and all the numbers to help make the final decisions. After around three months we found the right buyer and BOOM, it was sold! I would highly recommend the Kelly Group when considering selling your property. Less ... More

My husband and I were highly satisfied with the entire process that Kelly Hagglund and the Kelly Group team put into selling our custom home which we designed, built and lived in for several decades, while raising a family. From the initial visit to tour our home to ongoing discussions via telephone calls, emails, and one on one consultations, we felt that the Kelly Group was totally dedicated to selling our home at the price and conditions we requested. We appreciated everyone's honesty, integrity and friendliness throughout the process. It is not easy to sell a home that held a lifetime of memories. But the Kelly Group was able to combine empathy with professional expertise. A priceless combination. Thank you Kelly and all members of the Kelly Group Keller Williams. Less ... More

We received 2 offers in less then 2 weeks on the property we were selling,the sale went through meeting closing date even after septic etc needed done prior. The property we were purchasing was a difficult purchase due to the requirements. We feel that the Kelly group made this buy possible, another company would not have been as Diligent and helpful to meet those requirements. Thank you to the whole team! Stephanie and patrick wright

We used the Kelly group to sell our Condo and then buy our new house. The new house was a Short Sale and was a very long and drawn out process but the Kelly Group (especially Meri Kerekanich) stuck with us through it all keeping us very informed while also pressuring the Sort Sale realtor and the banks. Although a long process it worked out and we got and amazing deal on a home that we absolutely loved. Since working with them this last year i have recommended them to two other people and the Kelly group has sold their properties as well. They are kind, considerate, smart, on top of it and a pleasure to work with (everyone all the way down to the admin are very nice). We will 100% use her team again when we buy our next home. Less ...

I found Kelly's analysis of the market and our property was solid -- no overpromising just to get our listing. She and her team were on top of the process from start to finish. I also found her presentation of the property was the most professional I have ever experienced (and I have bought and sold many properties over the years). I can't say enough about how pleased we were with the process and result.

I chose Kelly Group based on feedback given in a blog in my company. I was worried at first, since their offices were far from the home I was selling. But, that was a non-issue. I met Kelly a few days after I have contacted her. She came to our house and gave us all the details on the throughout research she has done on our house, neighborhood, and area house market. We decided on a sale price for our home, based on her research. We needed to sell quick, but at a good price. The same week the sale sign went up, we got two potential buyers. The next day, Arthur called me to tell me that we had an offer. The offer was for the asking price, and without conditions. We accepted it, and Arthur guided me through the entire process. We closed on the sale about a month later...a day before we were due to permanently move to Texas! Right on time! I was impressed by the professionalism, experience, and the way The Kelly Group make the entire process painless. I strongly recommend them! Less ... More

I had two properties listed with the Kelly Group for several years in the million dollar plus price range during the depressed market. I was impressed with their brochures, flyers, advertising etc. The entire office was quick to respond when I had questions or concerns and made me feel like I was part of a family. One property sold and we decided to move into the second property and take it off the market.

Kelly has worked with us on a half a dozen transactions, and we will use her again if the opportunity arises. She explains the process so that we are aware of every step in the process but doesn't over explain. Our agenda was her agenda meaning that she always listens to our ideas and concerns and addressed them appropriately. We decided to get the home warranty and when our very expensive oven went out, she did absolutely everything possible to make sure that the warranty replaced it with the same high end quality.

In all the buying and selling of homes we've gone through over the last 45 years, we've never worked with a realtor as skillful and diligent as Kelly. Her expertise in marketing our home, her attention to detail and her follow-through are the reason our home in Newberg sold when most others weren't. The team she's assembled is first rate and show the same kind of care and attention to detail that she does. We cannot say enough good things about her.

In the recent sale of our home, Kelly was an invaluable help. She and her team had the perfect mix of knowledge, compassion and honesty concerning all elements of the sale. Since the sale of a home can be an emotional event, one needs an agent who is more concerned about the client than she is the sale. Kelly is such a person. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering the sale of their home.

I was extremely pleased with the professionalism that Kelly Hagglund displayed at all times while marketing my home. The photos, aerial views, brochures and other marketing techniques were second to none. The home sold quickly and smoothly, so I commissioned her to sell another piece of property. It's bare land and that's really difficult to market right now, but she is certainly going the extra mile and I have complete confidence in her.

Kelly Hagglund managed successfully the sale of our family farm. The farm had been owned by our family since 1925, so although we had decided to make the sale, there were lots of mixed emotions about selling it within the family and Kelly was sensitive to that. Kelly was consistently professional and knowledgable, but had a friendly, down-to-earth style about her that helped all of us feel comfortable working with her. In this challenging real estate market, Kelly helped us find the right price to put the farm on the market and then guided us as we considered offers that came in. The farm is now successfully sold and we as a family are happy with the process and the end result. You can't ask for more than that. Janet Beeler Todd, Marilyn Kokes Less ... More

From the first meeting at our home with Kelly, we knew we had found a real estate company that was highly professional and would work aggressively to sell our home. Every detail was scheduled and delivered as promised. Beautiful professional photography was done and brochures and curbside sheets produced that were amazing. At no time was the box at the curb ever empty of sheets for people to take. Throughout the whole selling process Kelly provided market updates and ongoing news of trends that were impacting our ability to sell. We always felt well informed of where our price needed to be to match the economic challenge. Our house successfully sold for the price we were asking. Kelly's entire staff is courteous and professional, responding quickly to any call or message. We have sold many homes over the years, and this was by far the best eperience we have had. Less ...
