Several of my friends chose Kelly and her team to purchase/sell their homes. There was no question of who we would want to help us find our first home! Kelly and her team made the home buying process seamless, easy, and we had so much fun during the process. I would highly recommend Kelly Allen to anyone who is looking to sell or purchase property.

Kelly did a fantastic job as listing agent for our home. The process started with a very thoughtful analysis of the market to assist us in setting an appropriate listing price. Her marketing materials were professional and innovative. Once an offer was made, she aggressively advocated for us and went well beyond what was expected to close the deal. I cannot recommend her more!

I had a great experience working with Kelly and Aaron. As a first time home buyer I had a lot of questions and needed plenty of support in feeling comfortable with the process. They were able to answer all of my questions and if they didn't know the exact answer they sought out the resources to find out. Bottom line is it was great working with Kelly and Aaron and I would recommend any of my friends that are interested in buying a place to do the same. - David

Kelly and her team are true professionals. We followed her advice in preparing the home for sale. This included using a professional staging company and following her advice on pricing. We had two good offers and our home came under contract in 9 days at an amount that was over list price. We would be pleased to recommend Kelly to anyone looking to sell their home at a reasonable price in a short period of time.

Kelly is knowledgeable about the Atlanta real estate market, very professional, and extremely responsive. Kelly sold my condo within one week of listing it on the market. I am now using Kelly to sell my house and to find our next house. I highly recommend using Kelly as your real estate agent!

Our first home buying experience was in the million+ market. Being from out-of-town, Kelly and her team not only brought a keen understanding of our price point, she also patiently navigated us through multiple areas to find us a dream home in a coveted location. An expert negotiator, Kelly and her team even solidified the home for a great value despite multiple offers! On top of that, when we relocated again, we knew no other team was as qualified to sell our home as Kelly?s. As predicted, she came through again and sold our house in less than two weeks for full asking price! Kelly is a power-player here in town with an expert understanding of the market that you want on your team! Less ... More

I had gone through three realtors & didn't know if I'd find one that was quick, responsive, efficient, knew how to negotiate effectively while being respectful & calm and most importantly, put my interests first. I found just the right person, Kelly Allen! She's a master at this and has a staff that all work together keeping my best interest at heart! Pretty difficult to find these days!

When my employer told me I was being transferred to Atlanta from Northern California and had one week to find a house, my wife and I went into panic mode. Then we were referred by a friend to Kelly and things changed. Her knowledge of the areas around Atlanta was such a huge help to us. She jumped in with both feet and did a ton of prep work for us so when we arrived in Atlanta we were ready to hit the ground running. She cleared her schedule and gave us all the attention we needed to find and negotiate the perfect house for us. Thanks Kelly! Less ... More

We engaged Kelly and her team early in 2014 to help us sell our house. She was honest and realistic on what needed to be done and managed our expectations accordingly. We followed her advice and she sold our house in 2 days! We were very satisfied with the results. She and her team are also fun to work with! Steve

We used Kelly and Co to list our house in Kings Cove. We had 3 full-priced contracts within 4 days of listing the house -- not much more needs to be said imo ;) They did a great job and have a full-service staff -- it's more than a single agent, it's a team. Thanks Kelly and Aaron!

We had the pleasure of working with Kelly Allen and the Kelly + Co team in March and April 2014 to sell our home. Kelly had been our neighbor for a number of years, but we didn't choose her because of that. Kelly was also a wealth of information about real estate. When we were contemplating a master bath renovation, I called Kelly to ask about the types of fixtures we should choose to make sure our home would be positioned better when it was time to sell. Because of Kelly's advice, we opted to install a spa-like master bath with body sprays, hand shower, and heated floor. We also followed her advice when renovating our hall bath and added a Jacuzzi tub to that bathroom to enhance it as well. When we were ready to sell, we approached Kelly, and I was amazed at the program she offers for sellers. When you engage Kelly to sell your home, you don't just get a single Realtor, you get a team of professionals. Kelly sold us on using her services when she explained how she would bring in, at HER cost, a decorator to give us advice to stage the home and a professional photographer to take pictures. Although I was skeptical at first, Kelly's decorator made excellent suggestions to help us dress our home up even more. Our home had already been renovated or updated top to bottom, but the decorator helped us stage each room to make sure we emphasized the space available and the function for each space. You may think all you need to do is declutter, but it's more than that. Let Kelly's decorate guide you! The next part of the process was having professional photos taken. When you see these photos, you won't believe it's your home. The photos are incredible and allow buyers to get a true sense of what your home is like before they ever step foot in the door. How many listings from other agents have you seen with poorly lit photos or tiny pictures that show no detail? You won't have that problem with Kelly Allen. The photos will be wonderful, and will definitely get prospective buyers picking up the phone and wanting to come by. Kelly's team had signs in our yard the week before our listing went online, and this helped drive business. The first Sunday we were on the market, Kelly's team held an open house. Almost daily, I received updates from the Kelly + Co team regarding offers and what buyers who had seen the home felt about it. We received three offers in the first two weeks on the market and were in binding agreement by the 13th day we were on the market. Don't forget that selling your home is only half the process. If you're buying as well, have no fear. Kelly's team is there to help. Kelly's buyer's agent, Connie, helped us immensely. Connie knew our area of town very well and had even shown a couple of the homes we viewed before. She was able to give us insight on the offer we wanted to make on the home we eventually bought. Connie's guidance regarding whether we should counter the seller's counter offer or accept it helped us snag the home. Connie wisely pointed out that if we countered their counter, the seller could decline. If we accepted, we were in binding agreement. The price was right, so we accepted. Sure enough, someone else had been interested in the home as well, and had we started another round of negotiations, we might have lost our dream home. Thanks to Connie and the Kelly + Co team, we not only sold one home, we moved into our dream home. Even after the offers are signed, Kelly and her team are there with you throughout the process until the mortgages are closed and you have keys in hand. Selling and buying can be stressful, but there's no reason to make it worse. Work with Kelly + Co because it pays to hire professionals. You'll have no doubt that Kelly and her team have earned their commission. We would not hesitate to use Kelly + Co again, and we gladly recommend them to our friends. Less ... More

Kelly not only ensured we were comfortable through the entire process but was patient and always willing to go out of her way to help us. We initially met Kelly while looking for a property and were so impressed we decided to use her as our realtor in selling our current property. Kelly is the definition of honest and reliable and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Atlanta market.

Kelly was the best choice we made to sell our house. We had two agents before her, and the house was never shown. It was very troubling to have our house sit empty, for over a year, working to keep it up, inside and outside and no one to look at it. I received notifications all the time of the showings and charts showing what was going on from Kelly and her staff. From the day it went on sale to the selling of the property, it was handled professionally. Also, I must mention Kelly's staff and her contractor was an added plus to our experience. Everyone added their expertise to the selling of the house. My wife and I are really happy with all the help we had in the selling of this property. We know it was because of Kelly and her staff of experts that made this possible. It did not take long to sell the property once everything was moving. Great job! Thank you so much. Less ... More

My husband and I were looking to make the move from Atlanta to East Cobb. We first were looking for a lot so that we could build our dream home. The buyers agent, Lisa Swann, was exceptional at helping us find exactly what we were looking for. We were able to close within 2 weeks to help secure the deal. We decided that in order to build the perfect home of our dreams, we needed to sell our current home. Since Lisa was so great, we decided to work with Kelly Allen, the sellers agent. Kelly sat down with my husband and I to explain what houses were selling for and what would be the best selling price for our home. It helped set our expectations so we were not disappointed. She took beautiful photos and put together a gorgeous booklet which highlighted the enhancements in our home. We positioned the home perfectly because we received an offer within 2 weeks of putting our home on the market. We are so happy with the attention to detail and help we received from everyone on Kelly's team!!! Lisa and Ben Levine Less ... More

I like Kelly because she is an old friend. I use her for real estate transactions because she is the best. I put my condo on the market less than a month ago and it has already sold and closed at full price and the offer was a cash offer. Kelly told me everything that I needed to do to make it sell and I followed her orders and guess what.....it worked. I am a happy client and I would recommend Kelly (and Aaron) to everyone who will listen.

The Kelly and Co team is truly the BEST in Atlanta. Kelly and her team were able to sell my home in just 15 days while other homes in the community have been on the market for 60-90 days. And she sold it for more $$$$$. She is a masterful marketer, she knows how to bring out the best in each property, she does a tremendous amount of research and ?has your back? throughout the entire process and negotiation. On top of being a great realtor, she is a great person with strong values. I believe that people choose to do business with that those demonstrate tremendous integrity, hold themselves and their clients to a higher standard, have the tenacity to get in there and ?fight the good fight,? and most importantly, people that treat others with mutual respect. In each and every one of our interactions Kelly exemplified these characteristics and I am proud to recommend her to my friends and family. Less ... More

We had a great experience with Kelly Allen and her partner, Connie Davison. They were always able to work with our schedule when we wanted to go see homes. We felt that they listened to what we wanted and really tried to find homes to fit our needs and wants. We are first time home buyers, and they took the time to explain things to us and to give us advice each step of the way. They were pleasant and easy to contact and really made the home buying process as simple as it could be.

Our experience of wanting to buy a new home began with Aaron who was just amazing, he was knowledgeable, helpful and exteremely patient We soon learned that he was going to hand us over to Kelly his wife, but promised us that the transition would be smooth and there wouldnt be anything for us to worry about. We enjoyed working with Aaron, and couldn't imagine that we could get anyone better to help us. We then met Kelly, and it was exactly as he had promised us, she was fabulous from day 1. We just developed such a special bond with her, she walked us through the entire process of purchasing a new whome which was still in the construction phase. She never left us for a moment and was always there to make sure that we were happy throughout the process. Kelly is simply a remarkable person both personally and professionally. She is an absolute asset to Keller Williams Realty and her hard work and dedication in what she does come through so very clearly. Wishing all the success in the years to come ! Less ... More
