Team reviews

We found Kelly DeBrosse and her team, including Audrey Johnston, on Angie’s list and cannot say enough wonderful things! We were looking to sell our town home and purchase a single family home and contacted Kelly. She came out quickly to meet with us one on one and discuss the sale of our town home. She explained the process well and helped guide us through our timeline of when to list based on the market. I was already a few months pregnant and anxious to be fully moved at least a month or two before my due date. She listened to our goals and helped us determine a fair price to list. She sent Sherry to stage our house and take pictures and she did an amazing job. The office was great about communicating with us to get e-docs and make the process as painless as possible. After a fair amount of foot traffic and feedback we dropped our price slightly and received an offer we were satisfied with shortly after. We felt like Kelly did a great job of managing our expectations. Hopefully we won’t be going anywhere anytime soon, but I would without a doubt go back to Kelly and Audrey next time we list.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Cary, NC.

To find a realtor, I read all the wonderful comments and recommendations on Angie's list which led me to request Kelly DeBrosse and her team from RE/MAX ONE REALTY to sell my home in Cary NC. Her vision first then making it a reality to fix my home look its best so I can get top dollar was beyond my expectations. Kelly's knowledge of local businesses to make the necessary repairs at a lower cost was definitely a great help to me. I highly recommend Kelly DeBrosse as your realtor whenever you need one.

Francine, thank you for your kind words and more so for your trust. I know that some of the changes were less enticing to you at first and I am grateful that you allowed me to wow you. It was a wonderful home and went to a wonderful family! Best wishes!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Durham, NC.

I can't sing the praises of Kelly DeBrosse and her awesome team enough. They were all very professional, efficient, and helpful. I watched the team prepare a property in another neighborhood and sell it immediately, and I knew I wanted to meet the realtor - Kelly. I called and set up an appt. and was not disappointed. I had spoken with other realtors who advised us to start lower on our price, but Kelly saw that it was special, and she had it sold for us in about 3 months when other properties in our neighborhood were taking a year or more to move at much lower prices! We had a few glitches with our buyers, and Kelly took care of everything with excellent negotiation skills. This was very important for us since it was a very emotional time to begin with. It was great to trust that we were in good hands and that she would handle things. I also have the same praises for everyone on her team. Our home was beautifully staged; we received advice and assistance on repairs; and everyone was very honest and made us feel very well taken care of. I wouldn't go anywhere else. I highly recommend meeting with Kelly DeBrosse to discuss your home sale. She's awesome at what she does!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Cary, NC.

We recently used Kelly and her team to sell and buy a house locally. We had an amazing experience. Kelly was our selling agent, she helped us stage and sell the house in no time flat (her staging person Shelly was great). Robert from her office was our buying agent and he was simply amazing. we literally were sad when we closed on our house because we knew we would not talk to Robert as much as we had grown used too. He was responsive and professional. Her team is top notch and were very patient with all our questions no matter how simple they seemed to us. It was exactly what we hoped it would be.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in New Hill, NC.

Kelly DeBrosse is simply a force of nature. She just gets it done.

We listed our home for sale with Kelly after having had a poor experience with another listing agent. Kelly was prepared, knowledgeable, and professional. She viewed our home and asked lots of intelligent questions, formulated a marketing strategy, advised us on what touch-ups and remodeling would give the most bang for the buck, and went to work. She arranged for the tradesmen that we needed (carpet, flooring, some light carpentry) and managed the work in coordination with our schedule and needs. She had her staging team come in and make the house stand out for the pictures and had high-quality professional photography done that really showcased the home well in the MLS listing (which is absolutely crucial today). She cunningly used the picture captions to do additional marketing beyond the space limitations of the MLS listing text itself. She had a beautiful tabloid-sized fold-out flier crafted in full color, leveraging the same gorgeous pictures. Throughout the process, she communicated thoroughly and clearly with us and stayed on top of all the details so we didn't have to worry about anything.

All I need to say about the effectiveness of her service is that within 24 hours of the listing going up on MLS, we'd had three showings and received a full-price offer, contingent only upon financing, not upon sale of the buyer's home or anything else.

We'd had it on the market for a month with a prior listing agent and gotten exactly one showing. Same property, radically different level of professional real estate sales capability. That agent was clueless about the importance of staging & pictures, and had posted pictures on their listing that were so drab and cheap that they spoke very poorly of the house. Kelly, by contrast, made her listing sing like Aretha Franklin.

It turned out that the buyer was a bit difficult to deal with, apparently being paranoid that everybody was out to do her wrong, even including her own agent (who seemed a bit challenged in managing the situation). She made a number of demands for repairs, some of which were reasonable but many of which were for silly or trivial things (caulking a faucet trim ring, replacing light bulbs in the attic -- really?!). Kelly and her team handled the interactions with grace and professionalism, but appropriate firmness, so that we negotiated a reasonable price reduction to offset a portion of the repairs the buyer wanted done and I didn't have to go do a bunch of trivial things that a normal buyer would just take on themselves. Kelly and her folks kept us calm and gave us hope in the midst of some unhelpful behavior on the part of the buyer, shepherding the deal to a successful conclusion. We closed last week and we wish the buyer well and wish Kelly and her team much success in the future. They'll have it, I think, because they'll continue to earn it.

In short, if you want to sell your house, list it with Kelly and do what she suggests. She'll make it happen.

Sold a home in 2014 in Southeast Raleigh, Raleigh, NC 27610.

Kelly came in an was brutally honest about changes we would need to make if we were going to sell our house quickly. Paint the door and shutter, replace carpet in the bedrooms and so on.Working with Kelly is Sherry Ray who spent a day a and a half staging our house. Sherry made the interior look so nice I wanted to cancel the sale and stay in the house:-). Kelly and Sherry Ray truly know what they are doing and understand the real estate market very well. Trust them with the sale of your house---you will not be disappointed.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Falls of Neuse, Raleigh, NC.

We highly recommend Kelly for both the sale and purchase of your home. She was so professional and informative from our first introductory meeting to the close of our new home. Kelly's knowledge of the area, builders, market dynamics and trends are just a few of the skills that set her apart from her peers. In the sell of our home we experienced many unforeseen challenges. The first appraisal came in well under the sell price and most agents would have recommended we accept the fate of that appraisal. The real value she brought in this situation was in supporting and outlining the minimal risk we needed to take ensure the maximum price for our home. Kelly and her team assisted us every step of the way and the end result was a second offer and higher appraisal which resulted in an increase of $25,000. It is evident the Kelly always puts her clients needs first! We are so grateful to Kelly for helping us find land and assist through construction of our new home. If you are buying or selling a home or both, you will not find a better partner and representative than Kelly Debrosse!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Falls of Neuse, Raleigh, NC.

I have over 20 years in mortgage banking and title insurance experience and previously held my real estate license so I have an extensive background in the real estate market in general. I decided to work with Kelly after she contacted me regarding a comparable property she was selling in my neighborhood. She was having problems with the property appraising and was digging in to find out the facts. I was so impressed by her commitment to her sellers and the email she had sent to the appraisers on the behalf of her sellers that I decided to list with her. I am glad I did. She and her team were phenomenal. She is always looking out for her customers both in making sure you receive the best price for your services, keeping you up to date and going the extra mile. She goes above and beyond and employs people who are as committed as she is. If you are selling your home or buying a home you don't want to work with anyone else!!!

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Northeast Raleigh, Raleigh, NC 27616

We hired Kelly to sell our home in North East Raleigh and although we ultimately decided not to sell Kelly was amazing. She was extremely knowledgeable, responsive and professional as was her entire team. While we are not selling right now she will be our first phone call when we are ready to put our house on the market. We HIGHLY recommend her. You will not be disappointed!!
