There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.
So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.
I would be happy to email you additional testimonials if you are interested.
Barbara & Milford Friedrich
"Do you want the best agent in South Carolina? Well we had the privilege of working with her.Kelly is in a league all her own. We were introduced to her via an internet search, since we were moving from out of state. It made no difference to her that she was on vacation when we first contacted her. ' I am always available,' and she meant it. She showed a level of professionalism one could only hope to encounter. Always LISTENING, never pushing to close the deal. We always felt that she definitely had our best interest at heart. It made no difference how we felt about a property, if her local knowledge told her it wasn't right, she didn't hesitate to stop us from making a mistake.
Ours was not the typical effort in locating and buying a home. Kelly will probably tell our story for years to come, with a laugh. But she never gave up, continued tirelessly, until we found the right location.
We have offered to adopt her, but her parents objected. She will always be a part of our family here in Charleston.
Kelly, it has been a pleasure. You will always be welcome in our home."
Deb S. and Kelly G.
Throughout ones life you meet many people. Some you meet and stay in contact with; some you'll get together for special events or holidays; and then there are those who dash in and out of your life quickly. Kelly, you have become one of those people we look forward to keeping in contact with. You are a very special person whose dedication, industry knowledge, and phenomenal contacts throughout Charleston are beyond reproach. I think your title is wrong, it should be "The Ultimate Agent"!
When we first met, you said "You're there 24x7". I've heard that comment many times, however, I've never had the good fortune to witness it. As residents living in the state of Virginia, YOU made everything happen in this move. From making a long distance move easy to setting up connections with new HOA and ensuring a pool could be built, You made things happen and I am so thankful for that!
Kelly and I will never be able to thank you enough for everything you've done.
We know our friendship will continue beyond the sale of our home. Thank you!"
John and Amy McGinn
"Kelly is a realtor superstar! Being a busy businessman with a hectic daily schedule, I needed someone who would match my energy and enthusiasm. I'm not a very patient person admittedly - and needed someone that could match my needs and daily work schedule. Kelly took all of the worry off of me. Everyone waits just to hear those three little words - - - "I'm on it!". That was Kelly's response to any of my needs and requests during the listing. Not only did she enable me to sell my home, but I wouldn't be in my dream home today if it wasn't for her real estate prowess and shrewd negotiating skills. I wouldn't ever trust another agent with any of my business from here on out. Kelly is honest, hard working - and tells you the complete truth - good or bad. I was so impressed with her work ethic, that I immediately recommended her to a neighbor. Imagine their surprise and mine, when she analyzed their situation, and actually recommended to them renting their house, instead of selling! In today's world - that kind of honesty and selfless committment is hard to find and refreshing. Thank you Kelly so much - for getting us our dream home, and selling our old home - especially in today's market."
Kip and Stacey Cooke
"Kelly Percy of the Competitive Agent Realty came highly recommended to us from several friends and acquaintances. Initially we were skeptical about putting our house on the market after several failed attempts to sell over the past three or four years.
We were impressed by Kelly’s professionalism and vision from the very beginning. On the day we signed with her she staged our home and totally transformed its appearance. Despite the state of the economy and number of homes on the market, Kelly presented us with a contract to sell our home within “TEN DAYS” of listing it.
In addition Kelly helped us to find the perfect home to fit our needs and made the entire experience a pleasure. We received prompt attention whenever we had questions or concerns and Kelly’s knowledge and experience alleviated all of our concerns. Kelly and her support staff are simply the best in the business.
If you are looking to buy or sell a home in the Charleston area you are doing a disservice to yourself if you don’t give her the opportunity to assist you. In the future we will not hesitate to recommend Kelly Percy to any of our friends or family for their real estate needs. Thank you Kelly for all that you do!"
Alberto & Mary Rodriguez
"In today's difficult real estate market it is more important than ever to have a broker on your side who is not just interested in turning a quick profit. Kelly is dedicated to brokering her properties fairly and equally important, she is committed to maintaining a professional relationship with her clients. Kelly's communication with the client is a key component in maintaining the professional relationship and working through the brokering process. Furthermore, the fact that Kelly is knowledgeable and informed with the current market trends is evident in how she handles the sale of her homes; Kelly's track record in this difficult economy is proof!
When we decided to use Kelly to sell our home she went out of her way to accommodate our schedules and meet our needs. Kelly made herself available 24/7 including negotiating the sale of our home into the wee hours of the evening the weekend that it sold. I highly recommend the expert knowledge, professionalism, and commitment that Kelly Percy has to offer as a Real Estate broker - whether selling or buying. Kelly was there every step of the way and we would certainly use her services again."
William and Lori Johnson
"First let me say Lori and I have never met anyone with as much drive and energy in the real estate business. It's very refreshing to have someone that has such drive and is competent in their profession. You got us through a very stressful and tough economic time. Being in the military we don't always have too much input about where and how long we live in specific location, so when the economy took a dip and we were forced to move, we simply didn't know what to do with this home we purchased at probably the worst possible time in the history to buy a home. This was because the housing bubble was at it's peak in 2006. I felt confident though simply because you provided all the options we had...from renting our home out, to selling immediately or waiting for a period and then selling it. It worked out perfectly...we had a renter for a one year lease and sold our home to a wonderful buyer on the day our renter moved out. Talking about being blessed...we were blessed in so many ways...from meeting you, to our renters, to selling our home. Kelly we just want to say thank you once again and wish you nothing but the best...you're the BEST realtor in South Carolina and anyone obtaining your services has chosen well or been very lucky!"
Htein and Cassie Lin
"Kelly is awesome! 10 STARS!! She is honest and hard working and quick to respond to emails/phone calls. We had never been to Charleston when the military moved us here. She was quick to welcome us, begin out house hunt and even found a condo for us to rent at a more than reaonable price while we continued our search! She is fantastic and I would recommend her to anyone needed to buy a home in Charleston."
"Kelly is very knowledgeable and ready and willing to help out in any way possible. I had called a couple of realtors before her, and her response time for any questions, or concerns could not be matched (I dont think I waited more than an hour most of the time an maybe half a day at most for any requests. Then I found out she was with clients on the days it took her a couple hours to respond). She is willing to go out of her way to meet personally on typical off-hours to do business, and to conform to your schedule. This is a seemingly more and more unusual quality in business-people and definitely appreciated. Even after our business was done and I needed her help, she has been willing to provide it.
Furthermore, her business contacts (contractors, brokers, even retail sales) were all very reliable, reasonable, and personable providing an invaluable resource to anyone.
I recommend Kelly to anyone I know who seems like they may be house-hunting in the near future."
"Kelly was recommended to me by a friend who said she was bright, hard working, and capable. You hear that a lot about people, but I was surprised and delighted when Kelly went to work to sell my property and it turned out to be true. We listed it on a Friday, the property was under contract on a Monday, and the closing came off three weeks later without a hitch. Throughout the process, Kelly was professional, well organized, and responded to requests for information in a timely manner. I could have not asked for more. I recommend Kelly's real estate services highly."
"A big toast for my Realtor: Kelly Percy. Kelly is THE best real estate agent I have ever dealt with. She was so awesome during this entire process (even after 30 houses she sounded happy when she answered the phone), and even after the sale was over she is still helping me with an unexpected bump: beyond expectations! With Kelly, buying a house has been AMAZING (and fun)! I would buy another house just to use Kelly again. Thank you for all you have done for me."
"Kelly has been the ultimate realtor in my opinion. She has guided me through the entire process and made it as easy as possible. She went above and beyond and took care of my pool, yard, house, repairs and anything else that I couldn't handle from a different state. She never hesitated to do this and felt it was just part of her job to deliver the best customer service possible. She has alwyas been available anytime of the day or night ot answer questions and has been friendly in the process. She was always thinking "outside the box" when marketing my home. I believe that's why mine sold first out of the 4 others on my street that were for sale at the same time. I feel that not only did she alone, single handedly sell my home in this tough real estate market, but that I have a new friend as well. She is the best!"
Mr. & Mrs. Thompson
"Kelly really was available 24/7. She made the whole transaction from the beginning to the end seem effortless. She had an amazing marketing plan that she was always tweaking to fit the market. Then she handled the negotiations and didn't cave in when most Realtors would. We ended up getting even more than we expected in this tough sellers market.
She always answered her phone and was just so easy to get in touch with and communicate with. She really made this whole transaction stress free for us. She has raised the bar for all other Realtors out there!"
"I hope all of you learn from my mistake. I had my house on the market with another agent for 6 months. After being unhappy with that other agent, I interviewed Kelly to list our house. She gave me all the facts and what she would do to market my house. She gave me a very realistic idea of what my house would sell for. Then I interviewed a second agent that said they could sell my house very quickly for a much higher pice. I decided to go with the other agent.
A year later and a house still unsold I called Kelly back. She was so professional and once again came with "the truth". Something that the first two agents lacked. I should've listened to Kelly the first time around. Kelly listed the property for us and sold it within 2 months. I wasted 12 months and had extra stress that could have been prevented.
Kelly offered so much more than the other agents as she gave us constant feedback and communication. I will not use anyone else as long as I live in Charleston. She is now the ONLY agent and I refer her to everyone I know!"
"Kelly has so much energy it will blow you away. It is amazing how she makes you feel like you are the only client that she is working with. She is very responsive and always follows through with what she says she is going to do. She has a great personality and is a lot of fun to work with. Definitely NOT your typical real estate agent. She is very strong in negotiations as she got me the best deal in the neighborhood. I can't wait to flip this house and use her again."
"Thank you, thank you, thank you! You worked relentlessly to find me the perfect country house. You never gave up and worked more than you should have for me. I am amazed by your constant work ethic and zest for life. You are a great agent and I am very satisfied buyer."
"Kelly knocked on my door when I was first considering selling my home. What timing! Her legwork canvassing our neighborhood highlighed her drive and outgoing personality. Her knowledge and support gave me the confidence I needed to move forward with the sale of my first home. She surpassed my expectations at every step and was willing to do whatever was needed to sell my home, even helping me pack for staging when I was running behind. She handled all the details - from an extensive marketing appeal across a wide variety of media to launch my house in the market to scheduling inspections and repairs while I was traveling so we could close on time. At each step, she kept me will informed and always promptly returned my calls and emails. I think Kelly would be an asset to the sale of anyone's home and am happy to recommend her to all!"
Bob and Julie
"Kelly, we are so appreciative of everything you have done for us. Our journey would have never been as wonderful if it had not been for your excellent skills and personal attention. We have loved having you be a part of this exciting time for us. Thank you for your professionalism, hard work and tough negotiating skills."
"Thanks Kelly, you are incredible! The work you did to get this house sold was truly appreciated!! You are a true professional! Our first agent had it listed for 6 months with no success. You sold it in one fourth of that time. I will be referring you to all of my friends and family from now on!"
