I was so impressed with Kelley! I previously listed my home with no results but received an offer with Kelley after only 13 days on the market. She helped me prepare my home to show to it's best advantage. She walked with me every step of the way, leading me through the inspections, contract legalize, and the closing process. Then she helped me find the perfect home to move to and helped me through the buying process. I was blessed to find not only the BEST realtor, but also now a good friend!
There was a couple of reasons why I chose Kelley to be our real estate agent. She was energetic and friendly. I was impressed with photos from her other listings. Professional photos make a big difference. I also wanted to share her experience in staging my house. I took her advise and sold my house in two days. I got six offers in two days, and ended up taking a full price offer on the second day. I would highly recommend Kelley.
"Kelley, is one of the best real estate agents we have ever used. She always had time to answer our questions. She listed our home and helped us purchase our new home. I would highly recommend her she is very knowledgable and will take the time to make sure you find your perfect home."
Having sold a few of our personal homes over the years we are far from pro's. Some of the experiences were positive and some not so much. Kelly guided us through the sale of our home as only a true professional would do. Giving us advice at every step of the way and always truly listening to our opinions. We enjoyed working with Kelly so much we asked her to help us buy our next home!
Kelley's trait is that she's experienced and a real professional. When we started looking for a home, We called her and she basically took control of the wheel and answered all our calls and our questions. She's also the nicest person ever, she wasn't nice because she was trying to make money, it was ginuwine. I felt confident with Mrs Kelley the whole way. Work with her NOW! I asked allot of questions, and not once did she say 'I'm not sure, let me find our'. She knew EVERYTHING, she was amazing. FIVE STAR SERVICE.
Kelley helped us buy our home in Lakeland, FL in 2007 when we returned to the USA after a long overseas assignment. She was a very professional and helpful. When we returned to our work overseas in 2010, Kelley and her company took care of managing our property as we leased it to several tenants, she was an excellent property manager. In 2016 we decided to sell our home in Lakeland and Kelley was our seller - we listed the house and had an offer within several days. We have recently closed on the house and are very grateful to Kelley for her assistance in walking us through this process. Kelley brings a personal and caring approach to her clients and we are happy to recommend her as a great realtor in central Florida
As a first-time homeowner, the process of buying a house seemed very intimidating. After working with several agents who only seemed interested in closing a sale, I was more than a little distraught. However, once I met with Kelley, I began to feel much more at ease. Through her actions, it was clear that she had a personal goal of helping us find our dream home. She remained extremely vigilant, contacting me almost daily with any new listings she found. She did thorough research on every listing we viewed and helped to reveal any potential resale/maintenance issues that would have gone unobserved by myself. Once we found "the one", she made the transaction easier than I could have imagined. I had constant questions while settling on a mortgage provider, insurance company, etc. and she answered them all with obviously well-founded knowledge. Overall, I couldn't recommend her highly enough, particularly if you are purchasing your first home and need someone experienced in the field of real estate. Kelley obviously takes personal pride in her work and genuinely cares about her clients.
Kelley helped us sell my parent's home. As my parents are in their 80's and need a little help, we wanted there to be as little stress as possible for them through this process. She was asked to communicate with multiple family members before checking with them. As adult children we were trying to help with any issue we could before worrying them. Kelley accommodated our every wish. She lined up a house cleaner so it would sparkle before placing it on the market, she had a painter touch up a couple areas to enhance its appearance, she had a handy man and carpet cleaner involved to optimize it all! She had so many good folks help us out! We so appreciated all her involvement as we all live out of town. We got a contract quickly, she negotiated the difficult issues easily, and we felt so very accommodated throughout! She is a great asset if you wish to buy or sell, she has had great experience in her short years and you will be very well taken care of! I cannot say enough good things! Thank you Kelly! You were great!
Completely enjoyed the smooth process of having Kelley Blackburn sell our home, quickly and efficiently. The initial meeting where she helped us level set the price reasonably was a wonderful guideline of what to expect. She ensured our home was represented beautifully in the photos. Kelley kept us abreast on the number of visits and buyers feedback. All the way through closing. Overall a brilliant process and experience.
You can't go wrong if you choose Kelley Blackburn to be your realtor. She did a fantastic job! She's a no-nonsense kind of a woman who gets the job done. Kelley is a true professional with expertise in negotiating. We have used her twice and would choose her again.
Kelley helped us navigate a difficult market to get our house sold. With every obstacle, she was constantly looking for a creative approach to get the deal done. She is by far the hardest working realtor I've ever encountered. She's compassionate to your situation and always encouraging in reaching the goal. Kelley KNOWS central FL and well connected in this area. In fact, the professionals she engaged for our sale were equally as impressive in knowledge and work ethic. You will find Kelley to be honest, ethical, and well, just a great person all around. Oh and don't forget the staff at Vogel Realty, who always answered the phone and responded quickly to requests for showings or changes to a scheduled showing. Great experience all around!
Our experience with Kelley was very positive. From the first meeting to discuss the possibility of selling our home through the final closing, she demonstrated excellent industry knowledge, marketing expertise, tenacious negotiation skills, and a genuine concern for her clients. She impressed us from the beginning of the process when she arrived at our initial meeting extremely well prepared, with comp research completed and a recommendation for a listing price that exceeded our expectations. She sold our home within a couple of months for over 99% of the asking price! She offered sound advice throughout the process and made what is normally a painful experience a pleasant one. I strongly recommend Kelley Blackburn to anyone in need of the services of a real estate professional.
Right from the get-go, Kelly comes across as someone who has a lot of experience dealing with all aspects of buying and selling a home. For us, that meant she understood how to listen to what we were looking for and get us matching recommendations from the MLS. We had very particular needs regarding both the home and the location (we needed a large shop in South Lakeland). Even with those stipulations, Kelly kept coming up with great properties. Once we identified some homes, she was very flexible in scheduling visits to see the homes. She also was very blunt about several properties that had issues we would find difficult to overcome (location, required maintenance, etc.) When making an offer for what is now our home, Kelly managed the process well. Contract negotiations, appraisal, inspection, and everything was handled professionally, and she answered all of our questions. She did so well, in fact, that the seller told us that our Realtor (Kelly) was far more communicative and helpful than his! We would highly recommend Kelly to anyone in the area who wants to work with someone who not only loves their job but also is very good at it.
On a 5-point scale, Kelley is a 10! She worked tirelessly to help us purchase and eventually sell our house. She responded promptly and professionally to all our questions and provided extra support when our transition got a little stressful. We highly recommend Kelley and her team if you are looking for results.
Listed and sold single family home that had been rented for a number of years and required some work to be marketable. Kelley was thorough, friendly, responsible, ethical. Can't give a higher recommendation for an agent.
I have nothing but accolades regarding our experience working with Kelley Blackburn. Kelley assisted our family in helping my mother sell her home in Lakeland. From the very beginning, Kelley helped us evaluate the condition of the home and worked with us through our decision to sell it as an investment property. Kelley marketed the property very well, and we ended up with multiple offers. We were able to get a good price, and the service all the way through closing was exceptional. Kelley was friendly and professional, and she maintained excellent communication throughout the entire experience. I recommended her highly without any reservation.
Fantastic customer service! Kelley was wonderful to work with. Whenever we had questions, she had answers! I highly recommend Kelley for your next home purchase!
Kelley was extremely professional, and handled every curve ball that was thrown at her. We had a few hiccups in selling the old house and buying a new one, but Kelley helped us keep our cool. She sold my old house in a day - twice (the first buyer fell through). It was a pleasure working with her.
Kelley was a real pleasure to work with. She started with the walk through of my house and gave suggestions on what needed to be done to get my house ready to sell. She took beautiful pictures and posted in various locations. Kelley set up showings immediately. When offers came in she used her experience and knowledge to instruct me on how to make counter offers. Kelley really helped me sell my house quickly
We chose Kelly Blackburn because she had quickly sold 3 other properties in our subdivision. After looking at our home, Ms. Blackburn said she thought she could sell our home in 11-12 days...it sold in 9 days! She knows the business inside and out, and was able to give us sound advise on accepting an offer or to counter with another price...we ended up selling for more than we had hoped for! We were more than pleased with our experience!
Kelley was God sent for us. She sold my house to the first person that looked at it. He saw it at 2pm, made an offer at 3pm the same day. She also directed us to the perfect house for us, even though I took some convincing. I'm so happy we listened to her. I love my house and neighborhood!!
"We met with several agents before we choose Kelley as our real estate agent. We thought that she was more excited about selling our home than we were! My husband and I told Kelley that we had to sell our home as quick as possible and boy did she go to work! We had a full price offer within two days!!! She kept us informed and up to date on all matters as the process moved along. She was truly a blessing for us!"
Thanks for all your help in making our "dream home" a reality. We really appreciated that you went the extra mile to get us the best price for our home. You are truly a professional.
In all our dealings with Realtors over the past ten years, we have never met anyone as helpful and energetic as you have been. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend your service to anyone who is looking for an experienced Realtor who cares about getting things done and doing them right! Thanks for taking such good care of us, we couldn't have done it without you!
Thank you so much for taking the extra effort to make our first home purchase successful. You were there guiding us through all the crucial and important steps! You really listened to what we wanted in our home and you found exactly what we were looking for - at an amazing price! If we ever outgrow this home, we'll definitely be calling you!
You made buying a home so easy for my wife and I. We were grateful for how much patience you used in answering all of our questions and taking us to look at so many houses. You never pushed us into looking at something we were not interested in. We strongly recommend you to anyone looking at buying a new home.
