See what our clients have to say.
After relocating to Seattle for work, and with neither my wife nor I having any family in Seattle, we were clueless as to where we should live. Fortunately, we referred to Kelly by a family friend...and we couldn't be any happier. Kelly is energetic, knowledgeable, PATIENT, willing to go that extra mile...and did I mention patient??? Because she is. That was one of the main reasons I was interested in working with her - previous clients boasted online about her saint-like patience, and I couldn't agree more. Kelly showed us dozens of homes over a several month period in and around Seattle. Each time greeting us with a smile, background on the home and the area, and a positive outlook that this 'could be the one' - all while keeping things honest and realistic in terms of our budget, the quality of the home, and our competitiveness as opposed to other buyers, etc.,
Kelly knew about trendy neighborhoods, where to focus and more importantly, where to avoid. She also knew what areas the new light rails are going and how this could affect commuting, property values, accessibility, etc., The woman knows her business!
My wife and I were able to find a beautiful home in the area we wanted (West Seattle), in the price range we wanted, with the specifications/amenities we desired. Was it easy...NOT AT ALL! But Kelly's perseverance allowed us to stay the course and find the right home. She was really cool about giving us our space when we grew tired (and aggravated) with the search, and gently (but properly) pushing us when the right opportunities came along.
I interviewed numerous agents - some of whom were twice Kelly's age but had half of her knowledge, charisma and skills --- you do the math, folks, that's a winning combination by any measure in any business. And with real estate in Seattle being as crazy as it is, and only getting crazier, you need to make sure you choose the right agent. And Kelly is that person.
Where do I start. My wife and I literally could not have gone through this process and bought our dream house without Kelly. We met in College, and reconnected a few years ago. From the start to the finish she was right there answering every question and had every answer we were looking for.
Her knowledge of the area is unmatched and when she took us to a few houses she had all the comps, and possible pros and cons of each property. This was a huge help to have a professional's eyes and advice on each property.
When we finally found the perfect house, she did everything in her power to make sure we got it. We saw the house, and that night another offer came in, and Kelly didn't let us lose it. She put our offer in late at night and called us first thing in the morning to notify my wife and I that the seller signed and the house was ours!
She is an expert in negotiations, contracts, and every aspect of the home buying process. She will forever be our go to realtor and I have already passed her information onto multiple friends! If you need any type of realtor work, you would be a fool not to hire Kelly McGinnis!
I was referred to Kelly through a friend. We met and went over all the must haves I had been looking for in a condo. She asked great discovery questions to make sure she understood exactly what I was looking for. She then went over all the different ways I could put together a competitive offer in this market. I had done 7 offers with a previous agent with no success. She outlined each method of being competitive and the pros and cons to each (example increase in earnest money, waiving inspection, waiting on financing, etc). She even sent me articles to read up on what each meant and the risks associated to a buyer and seller with each. She said she felt confident we would get my first or second offer. She sent me the listing and I appreciate they had all been vetted to meet my criteria. She set up tours and I went and looked. Loved the place I am in now and put an offer in with recommendations on how to make my offer competitive. I'm beyond excited to say I got my first offer with Kelly!! Just moved in and I am getting settled. She and her team (Melissa) were amazing to work with and kept me updated on everything. Such an easy process and fantastic service. I also can't believe I got my first offer in this housing market. I can't say enough about Kelly and would recommend her to anyone!
We recently sold our home in Seattle and are so glad we made the decision to work with Kelly. She did a great job to stage our home, price it perfectly, and attract multiple offers to optimize the sale price of the home.
She is one of the hardest working and passionate professionals that we've had the pleasure of coming in contact with. Her thought process, ideas, and creativity sets a standard that other agents should strive to achieve. She has an innate ability to visualize how each home can be optimally staged, and to understand what is most important to each buyer/seller when going through the process of purchasing/selling their home.
The combination of Kelly's engaging personality, extensive knowledge of the industry, and ability to understand her clients allows her to excel above and beyond set expectations.
Words cannot describe how lucky we were to work with Kelly. We would highly recommend her to everyone.
Kelly was such an amazing agent for me! I met her at one of her open houses and knew that she would make a great realtor to help me find my future home. She knew that I was a first time homebuyer and walked me through everything to expect and gave me advice on how to narrow down my search. Kelly was extremely responsive to all and understanding of my questions and made sure I was able to see all the places I was interested in. She was a pleasure to work with and given how competitive the Seattle market can be, she helped me stay positive and confident in my housing search with her encouragement and optimism. I highly recommend Kelly to anyone looking for a home and can't wait to work with her again in the future!
Kelly was recommended to us by a friend and after our first meeting with her, we knew she was the perfect fit for us. We were first time home buyers, Kelly was very knowledgeable and walked us through every step of the process. Kelly also helped us find a great mortgage company to finance our purchase. With the market as crazy as it is, it was crucial to have a realtor that was always available and could talk through all of the offer options to keep us competitive.
We ended finding the right house the Friday before memorial day weekend and Kelly helped us get an offer together over the holiday weekend. The house was owned by a poorly run LLC which led to a difficult closing process. Kelly kicked butt to get the sell closed, keeping us calm and confident throughout the entire process.
Kelly is awesome, I will definitely work with her in the future and recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
A few years ago, I started a home search and Kelly was recommended by a lender. She was always attentive, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. Unfortunately, due to life circumstances, that housing search didn't end in a purchase. I recently started a home search again and contacted Kelly. We quickly found a house that I liked, made a bid, and got the house. Throughout the entire process Kelly was always responsive and super easy to work with. Additionally, even after the purchase was complete, Kelly followed up and helped with getting some work done prior to move in. I highly recommend Kelly and look forward to working with her again.
Kelly Corr was our realtor last year when we were in the market for a North Seattle house. Now, Seattle was, and is, a very tricky market. It is the hottest market in the USA and requires an experienced agent who can conduct the search in a very timely manner. Kelly was amazing and we were able to purchase a home at a very competitive price. In our introductory meeting she explained the market and its nuances, which are very different from where we were coming from. Going into the Seattle market you have to know that things happen quickly! She is an extremely pleasant, professional, and likable person. Kelly Corr has my highest recommendation.
We have known Kelly for many years. We chose Kelly to represent us in selling our house because we knew she would be the right fit for us and excel in her knowledge of our local home area, plus her attention to detail and high expectations is what we were wanting in our agent. The entire process was fast and easy. Kelly developed a beautiful brochure and selling piece that was very compelling to buyers. She planned open houses for two weekends in a row which brought in lots of people each time. We worked together in showcasing our yard. She hired a fantastic photographer. Lastly, Kelly always returned calls and texts ASAP and was great communicating w/us. This was a very positive experience for us. We had lived in our home for 40 years and I have to say that this was a very happy ending thanks to Kelly Corr.
Kelly became our agent after helping my brother find a home very quickly in the green lake area here in Seattle. She quickly showed us why he recommended her: over communication, on top of all paperwork and really asked all the right questions to help us find what we wanted. She made the extra efforts to get paperwork in right away and followed up whenever necessary to keep things moving. Good or bad news, she helped us through it. Once we found our home, she did everything she could to get us our dream home, and helped us get it under asking. Kelly hustles 24/7 to give her buyers the best experience possible. Don’t 2nd guess if you need an agent - call her!
Kelly was amazing to work with! She was responsive and made the whole process as stress-free as possible! I appreciated how easy she was to get a hold of, and how she talked us through the whole process. She put all my first-time home buying worries at ease and made it a lot of fun! I would highly recommend Kelly to anyone looking to buy a home!
We worked with Kelly this summer and early fall as our buyer's agent and she was truly invaluable in helping us navigate the complex and challenging Seattle market. Kelly was always responsive and worked with us to do showings around our crazy schedule. She was also instrumental in helping assemble the right team to make things happen (e.g., mortgage broker, inspector, etc.) and was a great guide in navigating bidding and negotiations. We'd recommend Kelly to anyone without hesitation.
Kelly is wonderful to work with and has found the perfect balance of appropriate pushing when she knows a good deal has presented itself and stepping aside to let a potential buyer mull over a decision. We have thoroughly enjoyed the entire process with her and highly encourage anyone looking for poise, professionalism and personality in one package to contact Kelly McGinnis without delay -- you will not be disappointed.
Kelly worked with my fiancee and me for months to find the right house and Brittany filled in seamlessly when Kelly wasn't available to show us a home. Kelly found us the perfect house off market and in our price range in the spring. We fell in love with the house the first time we went to look at it. After we purchased our new home Kelly helped us sell our townhome for well above asking. We are very happy with our experience working with Kelly and Brittany.
Kelly was wonderful! As a first time buyer I had no knowledge of the process of buying a home. She made it very easy for me to learn along the way. Kelly knows this market in and out, and gave me her best advice on what options suited my needs while not rushing anything. She was available every time I had questions or concerns, and immediately handled all of my requests. Kelly was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to connecting with her again in the future.
Kelly was a great resource and advocate, helping me find a home in a very challenging market. Her positive and resilient attitude was infectious. She talked me through offers in detail, providing recommendations, but always well aware of what I was looking for and needed. Most importantly, Kelly knows her business, is trustworthy and extremely customer oriented.
Kelly is great! She was the perfect mix of understanding, knowledgeable and tenacious (when need be). She helped us find a great house that checked nearly all our boxes and put up with our indecisiveness and lack of experience along the way. I would highly recommend working with her.
We worked with Kelly over the course of a year to find the perfect place for our first home purchase. She was incredibly understanding of our hesitations as first-time buyers, and really spent time and energy to understand what exactly we were looking for. In today's fast-paced market, we were extremely grateful to have her experience and knowledge to help guide us through the process. She was incredibly responsive, available, and simply a joy to work with. We would recommend her with enthusiasm for anyone looking to buy or sell a home! Thanks Kelly!
Kelly was instrumental in my house buying process. She was patient with me when things got stressful. She worked around my schedule to show me houses, and was always prompt in her arrival. She was resourceful in getting quotes for repairs, and helping me with the negotiation process. Thank you so much Kelly!
I was referred to NWG real estate through a friend of a friend. They primarily worked in Seattle, but were very accommodating in helping me find my home in Everett. Kelly wasn't as familiar with the Everett/Lake Stevens area, but she more than made up for it in her eagerness to help me find the home that I loved. She was able to hone in on what I was looking for right away and we found my home in 1-2 weeks. She was very responsive and open to answering any and all questions that I had. She also stayed on top of everything when I began to run into issues with my lender and seller. She held them accountable and kept pressure on them to ensure that I was able to close on my home within the timeframe that needed. She even worked with the seller to allow me to move in prior to closing as I had to vacate my prior residence. I really appreciated the customer service she provided. She kept me well informed of what was going on at every step and worked diligently to ensure that I had a positive experience and things ran as smoothly as possible. I would definitely recommend her services.
