★★★★★"We had Kelly show us places in the Laguna Beach/Dana Point/San Clemente area about 4 years ago but as it turned out, it wasn't the right time for us. Then we called her again a few months ago and started looking again in the same area. She was on it right away, had 4 places set up for us in a few days. We saw them that day. Then she suggested if we wanted to see another listing that was out of our price range. We said sure (just for kicks) and then when we saw it, we fell in love with it and decided on the way home to go for it. We called her, made an offer, closed escrow in 21 days and we're in. If it wasn't for Kelly's responsiveness, organizational skills, creative and proactive thinking, we would not be in the place we have now. We love it here and know that Kelly made it happen. She is knowledgeable, responsive, so nice and kind, very easy to work with, experienced and on top of her game. We would never use anyone else to help us find any other place in these areas. She's unbelievable and wonderful!!! A fantastic real estate agent. You are missing out if don't consider Kelly when looking for a place to purchase." - Buyer in Dana Point

★★★★★"Kelly is the ultimate professional and kept me as the buyer totally informed. She has the best knowledge of marketplace conditions. I would highly recommend her if you want honest advice and no real estate games. " - Victor Quint from Laguna Niguel
★★★★★"Kelly was one step ahead of everyone during the whole process. After being outbid on a property she was able to find us a pocket listing that was even better than the original property. She navigated the entire process with ease and was on top of everything to ensure a smooth closing process. She has even helped us with property transition after closing and helped coordinate some minor projects in the new property. I would highly recommend Kelly as she is a local expert for desirable properties in Orange County. " - Ali E from Dana Point
