See what our past clients are saying about us…

 

“We purchased our first home through Chris in 2011 and we were immediately impressed with his experience, expertise, and honesty-all of which were very much appreciated as first time buyers.  This past year, we bought our second home through Chris and sold the first, at which point we met his father Phil.  Again, we were impressed by their expertise, reliability, and follow through making our first time selling experience a pleasant one.  Their calm demeanor and confidence as well as great sense of humor made an otherwise stressful experience as easy and smooth as it could possibly be.  We highly recommend them!”

Sean and Brianne Kaurup

 

“Phil Kelley and his staff are a totally professional real estate team.  Phil made my short sale possible in the most impossible situation.  He has a can do mentality.  He never gave up, even when all else seemed bleak.  Thanks Phil and the Kelley Team!  You were a godsend!”

Joseph B. Prendergast

 

“We have used Phil several times as have other family members for almost 20 years.  He is a totally professional Realtor.  We have listened to his and Marcia’s advice on what needs to be done to the houses and what we can expect to get for them.  It works well as the houses have sold in short times and for top dollar.  I would recommend Phil to anyone looking to sell.   I don’t think you can do better with anyone else.”

Allan Freeman

 

“Phil worked with me for 3 years until the market was right for me to sell my property.  He wisely suggested that I pay my tenant to move out 2 months early, so we could get our house on the market at the best time.  He managed all the repairs, upgrades, etc. to make our house as attractive as possible.  The listing went live on a Friday and by Monday night we had 4 offers, bidding the price up $14,000.  I expected to bring $13K to closing and instead broke even.  Phil even handled the closing as we live out of state.”

Donald Thompson

 

“We couldn’t be happier with the service provided by Phil and his family.  Our house had not sold for 5 months when we turned to Phil and Marcia.  They gave us good advice on some minor touch-ups, helped arrange service people and supported our decision to move before our house was sold.  They did not over-promise and delivered on what they said they could do.  I think the house sold in 2 weeks after it went back on the market.”

Pam & Mike Mason

 

“When I sold my home in Maryland in 2018, I hired Phil Kelley as my REALTOR.  I had retired in 2014 as a REALTOR in the same office-RE/MAX Realty Group-and wanted to choose a colleague who was the very best example I knew of a “true professional.”  I had worked with Phil for 26 years and knew that Phil and his “family” team was the answer for me.  From the beginning they went to work to help me with ideas and suggestions of everything that I needed to do.  After my house went on the market, it promptly sold in two days and for a much higher net price than I believed it would.  Phil was extremely helpful during the whole process, and my house closed in 30 days.  Needless to say, I knew I made the right decision when I chose Phil to market and sell my property!”

Dee Rosenberg

 

“Phil’s team was great to work with.  They provided excellent guidance and beneficial recommendations.  The property was sold quickly for more than the listed price.”

Steve H.

 

“Thorough, knowledgeable and took the time to understand what we were looking for.  Chris was always exceptionally prepared with listings to view and goes the extra mile on the backend with the homeowners, lenders, inspectors, and more.  Can’t imagine a smoother buying experience!”

Bran & Song

 

“A very positive experience working with Phil and his team.  Very calm in their professional approach to selling.  Very honest and professional.  Exceeded expectations and made for an easy sale!  Would gladly use them again!”

Rick and Tracy Walton

 

“We can not say enough good things about Mr. Kelley and his Team.  His kindness, friendliness and always reassuring words, along with his expert opinion, will always leave us feeling confident in the outcome.  He never failed to return a call or text.  It is rare these days to get the personal attention that we received from them.  We readily recommend Mr. Phil Kelley and his Team.”

Mr. & Mrs. Whitefield

 

“I have known Phil since 1985.  He is an honest, “tell it like it is” guy.  What you see is what you get.  I would never use any other agent.”

John C. Lammers

 

“Phil and his team went above & beyond in helping sell our home during a soft period in the market.  He was always available to meet contractors & inspectors and followed up diligently with each Realtor that showed our home.  He always put our interests first and was responsive to requests.”

TB

 

“Phil Kelley and his team are truly the best in the business.  Over the last 18 years, I have used Phil to sell 3 houses and Chris to buy one.  Each time, the process went smoothly and I couldn’t be happier with the service and professionalism.”

Judy Schwartzman

 

“I can’t say enough about Phil Kelley!!  He made me feel like my small condo was as important to him as the million dollar properties.  He was always available to talk with me and explain things so it was easy for me to understand.  He follows up on everything and is always thinking 2 or 3 steps ahead.  I felt like he always had my back.  I would always highly recommend Phil and his team.”

PS

 

“I used the Kelley team to both sell and purchase homes.  I wouldn’t use anyone else in Montgomery County.  I am most impressed by their integrity and knowledge of the real estate business.  Buying and selling a home can be very stressful.  Working with the Kelleys minimized that stress for me.  They worked hard to make sure my needs were met, every step of the way, and were able to produce the results I was seeking.  They are great professionals and wonderful people.”

Kathy

 

“Phil sold us a house & also sold two houses for us.  He walks on water!  He’s professional, ethical, and he knows the market.  Phil prices right the first time so your house won’t sit on the market.  Can’t recommend him enough!”

Tina Kramer

 

“My husband and I were first time home buyers with Chris Kelley being our Realtor.  Chris showed so much patience with us as it did take about a year for us to find our dream home.  Chris was always available to us via email and phone and really helped educate us on the process.  For our final home choice Chris made sure we got everything included and really secured a great deal.  I have already recommended Chris to multiple friends!  I will be sure to use the Kelley Team again!”

Chrissy & Chris Rucker

 

“Phil and his family have helped me to buy and sell a house and both have been great experiences.  Beyond providing comprehensive and superior service, Phil’s caring attitude and integrity inspires confidence and is a joy to work with.  I would happily entrust any family or friends to Phil and his team for any real estate service needs.”

Peter Moy

“Phil and Marcia did an outstanding job in selling my mother’s condo.  They provided us with names of contractors to fix up the apartment and kept us well informed of the selling process.  All of the suggestions made by the Kelley’s helped improve the value and looks of the property.  They were very professional and answered all of my inquiries in a timely manner.  I would use them again and I would recommend them to anyone who needs a competent Realtor.”

Mark Zendel

 

“When I needed to sell my house I did not consider anyone other than Phil Kelley.  I had worked with Phil and his team many, many years prior and never forgot his professionalism.  Phil and his team were even more knowledgeable and professional than I recalled.  Phil’s knowledge of the market helped me sell my home quickly and at a fair price.  Phil is highly respected by all in the industry.  When Phil Kelley calls, people take action.  From carpet cleaners to painters to plumbers, Phil knows how to get things taken care of to sell your home.  Phil produces a quality brochure and website listing.  He and his team are with you every step of the way.  Even after I signed on the bottom line at closing, Phil called to see how my move had gone and how I liked my new home in another state.  The consummate professional is the best way I can describe Phil and his team.”

Gina Miner

 

“We never had better or more efficient service than we received from Phil Kelley.  On his advice we priced our home at a reasonable and competitive amount and it sold within 2 weeks, even in the dead of winter.  In fact we had 4 offers within a week.  His honesty and integrity in guiding us through the process and his willingness to ALWAYS go the extra mile made it a pleasure.  He is the best.”

Jeff and Jane Nelson

 

“I was very pleased with the way Phil and his wife Marcia handled the sale of my house.  They did a great job analyzing the market, setting the right price, and doing the right things to help me prepare the house for sale.”

Jeff Miner

 

“Having used the Phil Kelley team to sell two houses over a ten year period, I can attest to their professionalism in planning for renovation, ongoing personal attention to all details, and outstanding results in maximizing sales prices.  I would highly recommend this team.”

S.M.C., Derwood

 

“I've known Phil for many years. He is an honest, caring person, with the integrity of someone who has your best interest at heart.  He and his family have the expertise to advise you of the importance of preparing your home for sale to present it in the most favorable light to the potential buyer.  A few changes/improvements can reap tremendous rewards.

Phil sold my townhouse last year.  He kept us informed (even when we were in Europe), answered our questions or concerns and went to great lengths to make sure everything went smoothly.  I  feel confident you'll be satisfied in trusting Phil and his family to sell or list your home and know they'll do everything they can to get you the best outcome.”

Lynn & Peter

 

“Chris was very generous with his time and expertise throughout the exciting process of purchasing our first home.  He is a tremendous asset and a dear friend.”

Ricardo Camacho & Ksenia Prokunina

 

“I have worked with the Kelley family on both the buying side and the selling side.  My wife and I worked with Chris Kelley for over a year in searching for a residence in Montgomery County, while living in another state.  He had great patience during the process, keeping us well informed about what was on the market that might meet our needs.  When we found a house to our liking, he provided all the services one might expect from a good realtor.  We never felt pressured to buy a particular property but offered insight both pro and con at each property we visited.

I worked with Phil when listing to sell the property we purchased years before with the help of Chris.  He and his wife Marcia were very thorough in preparing and marketing the house.  Phil was very involved in the sale process keeping me informed and gave feedback on all showings.  We worked together on a small number of items requested by the buyer to complete the sale.  He and Chris’s assistance in dealing with the buyers lending agency in another state late into a Saturday evening, before recommending the sale, was outstanding.  Final closing with both Phil and Chris present went very smoothly.  I would highly recommend them for any real estate transactions.  A good honest family.”

Marvin Brown    

 

“Can’t think of anything you could have done to make the process better.  I’m so grateful for the experience I had with your family.  The professionalism, Phil’s market knowledge and Marcia’s expertise in knowing how to present my condo for a profitable sale.  Your care and concern!  Thanks so much for the worry-free experience, you were just what I needed.”

Helen DenBoer

 

We have done business with the Kelley Team in at least four transactions over the past dozen years.  All these events were conducted with professionalism.  Integrity, courtesy, support of the client whether buying or selling, and a good dose of patience, humor, and responsiveness have been hallmarks of this firm.  We recommend them without qualification.”

The Johnsens

 

“Both Phil & Chris Kelley have worked with our family and we have only wonderful things to say about both of them.  They are very patient and knowledgeable.  In addition they are prompt in answering any and all questions.  They had many vendors that they have relationships with that could help us in different areas of our move.  They took so much time with us to make sure that we found the perfect home.”

Mia Pearlstein

 

“Have worked with Phil & his team for several transactions and we’re extremely satisfied.  Whether buying or selling the team is very professional & helpful.  We highly recommend the Phil Kelley Team.”

Cathy & Jim

 

“I cannot say enough times how pleasurable it’s been to work with Chris.  He’s patient, professional, and very perceptive to what my wife and I wanted in a home.  His experience is obvious the first time you walk through a home together with him.  Couldn’t be happier!  Thanks Chris!”
