Not wishing to waste her time, we were as forthright as we could be about our situation. In a couple of days, she acquainted us with the state of the market in Chicago and provided invaluable guidance that helped us to make the life-changing decision to relocate here. She instantly grasped precisely what we were looking for and upon our return to the city, was able to show us, in a matter of days, a number of apartments that were ideal for our tastes, needs and budget. She never showed us a single listing that was unsuitable or beyond our budget. From there, the entire process, from offer to closing was handled with professionalism, sensitivity and efficiency. We would be pleased to recommend Kelly's services unhesitatingly to anyone.
I had Kelly rent my apartment in Lincoln Park during a slow rental season, and she went " above and beyond" to make sure my unit was visible in every possible place, from the MLS to Zillow and even Craigs List. . She personally attended the showing for every prospect. She did not use a lock box. She clearly has in-depth knowledge of the market and market trends. She gave me feedback after each showing, and kept me in close communication. It was a pleasure to work with her.
I was moving from Texas and she was so good with helping me understand the best areas to be. She knows the city like the back of her hand!
She was extremely patient, answered all of my questions (and as a first time buyer, I had quite a few questions) and made me feel comfortable with such a complex process. Kelly's experience with all aspects of home buying led me to finding the perfect home and I could not be happier!
We reside out of state and depended on her to coordinate everything. The house needed repairs and improvements … new carpet, hardwood floors refinished, drywall work and paint, minor electrical and plumbing repairs. Kelly got estimates and supervised the work. Even when the market slowed, she reassured us she could deliver. I believe she went above and beyond what a typical realtor would do. Thank you, Kelly!
We had many special requests and Kelly did her best to accommodate us every step of the way. Especially considering we did our move during the pandemic, Kelly went above and beyond to help us! There were many obstacles but she helped us navigate through everything. In the end we got more than we hoped for thanks to Kelly. Thank you for never giving up on us!!
5 star rating and would recommend.
She was always available and was willing to go to battle with us. We had a tricky negotiation for a rental and the landlord tried to go back on his word and she held her ground and was diligent. We are very happy with our location and the hard work of Kelly Mead!
I was looking for an ADA compliant apartment with a walk-in shower and wide doorways. I was totally lost when my step-daughter suggested I contact Kelly. I was not disappointed. Kelly was empathetic, non judgmental, knowledgeable, and patient. She was professional and at the same time made me feel comfortable. At a time of extreme personal stress, Kelly took a lot of pressure off apartment hunting.
She was super knowledgeable and truly cares for her clients. She always has the best interest for her clients even if it’s more work on her end. Kelly was very responsive which I loved!
Kelly has been instrumental, invaluable in providing the local market insight required to guide through the sales process. We have sold over 60% of the units in just five months, all at or above our pre acquisition estimates. In addition to excellent market insight and professionalism, Kelly has gone more than the extra mile "on the ground", as we are out of town Sellers and she has had to "pick up a lot of pieces", that normally the Seller would be required complete themselves. Great experience.
We had several friends who suggested that we do it by ourselves given our bad experience with agents in Chicago. After meeting Kelly - that was over with. She was such a priceless professional, both myself and my spouse felt we couldn’t have done it without her. She is the perfect professional- detailed, honest, knowledgeable, informed, constantly striving to take care of her clients, and adheres to professional integrity at all times. We feel that we were so fortunate to come across her, just as we were ready to give up. I urge you to look at other reviews - there is a reason she has perfect scores. She is the best Realtor you could ever hope to have. We are life long customers of hers. If we sell or buy, no hesitation- Kelly will be our agent.
As an out of state client coming into Chicago, Kelly made the transition so much easier and less stressful. Her knowledge of the areas I was researching as well as expertise of other things such as parking, utility providers, etc. was truly above and beyond.
Very thourough, understanding and patient. I was fortunate that I met her at the right tim eon my life. She worked very diligently to make my first real estate purchase a positive experience.
She's knowledgeable about the industry, she's knowledgeable about the product, and perhaps most important of all, she's got great touch. Kelly helped me with my first purchase and was truly an invaluable partner throughout. I can only sing Kelly's highest praise and encourage any type of client -- individual, investor, or otherwise -- to seek out Kelly.
She has helped me navigate and negotiate through several real estate transactions with professional prowess. Perhaps the greatest thing I admire about Kelly is her commitment to her clients. She could have given up on me a long time ago when I was dragging my feet or unsure as to which neighborhood or property to pursue. She stayed with me even though my "file" grew larger and larger :) She's not just an excellent professional but a sincere person, which to me means more than anything.
In both cases she was professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. I would definitely work with her again.
She put great thought into positioning our condo in the market and we got strong offers immediately because of her upfront work.
We were completely unfamiliar with the city and did not have time to go see the apartments in person. Kelly set up a search for us that gave us great options. She gave us invaluable information on different neighborhoods and areas. She then took the time to go see several apartments and provide us with valuable feedback. Based on her recommendations and advice, we found a great apartment in Lincoln Park that absolutely exceeded our expectations. Kelly was responsive, knowledgeable, and helpful throughout the entire process!
