Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Martha Lake, Everett, WA.
Bob, was a great realator. We were in the area for a job interview and had 2 days to look at a lot of houses. He showed us 20 houses. We found one house we liked. We had to head back to Texas the next day. Bob helped us do everything remotely. We signed everything via eSignature. The sellers accepted our offer and Bob scheduled the inspection. Since we were back in Texas we could not be there for the inspection. Bob got a great inspector. One that found that the house we made an offer on had a LOT of problems. We decided to resend our offer. Since we were not able to come back up for another house hunting trip Bob found more houses for us and took over 150 pictures of each house and sent them to us to review, giving us his opinion of each house and how well he thought we would like it, based on our previouse house hunting trip. We ended up buying a house sight unseen other than just the pictures. It was the perfect house for our family. We couldn't have done it without Bob! Bob is very knowledgable about the area and was very attentive to all of our inquiries. Would definitely use him again and recommend him to all our friends.

Yes, we really had to scramble to get the second house under contract. How did we all miss the chimney leaning away from the first house? That's something I'll know to look for in future. There's always something more to learn. Enjoy the new job, house, and state!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Auburn, WA.
Bob was great and so patient while we were trying to figure out what we wanted and where we wanted it. I wanted someone who would respond quickly via email and he always got back to me in a timely manner, often within a few minutes or hours. Twice we were interested in a house we saw online, but weren't able to go out and see it in person. Bob went the extra step, went there for us, and took extensive pictures of every little nook and cranny. The other great thing about Bob is that it was like having an inspector walk through the house with you. He would often point out things we never would have noticed that either needed to be repaired or had recently been updated. Would definitely work with Bob again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Seattle, WA.
We recently bought our first home, thanks to the help of Bob Kelly. Bob took us to look at several homes that fit our criteria and he was very knowledgeable when it came to noticing important details about each house that we would not have been able to identify on our own such as the condition of the roof. When we finally found our home, Bob emailed us a list of reasons why it was such a great deal. Thanks to that email we made an offer and got our house. We were even able to close early. I would highly recommend choosing Bob as your realtor!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in North Bend, WA.
Bob contacted me from some preliminary internet searches and together we toured homes for almost 3 months. Wrote one offer, and retracted the same after I got cold feet. Eventually we found the right house and it was far from a standard deal, but it worked out well in the end. Highly recommend!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Uptown, Seattle, WA.
Bob helped me to find the perfect place what I described in the beginning. There was no such delay and wasting of time of looking around hundreds different properties (I saw many of my friends took so much time to just look around to find the right place). He really did good job to filter out the properties on the market.

He was always in touch even late night. I think that worked out really well as there was a higher offer come in after the seller accepted our offer (Yay). It took less than a month and a week on finding the right property to the closing date. I really had a great experience. He was really responsive from the start of looking for a place to the end of purchasing process. I highly recommend him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Interlake, Bellevue, WA.
Bob is a very professional, friendly and courteous person. Buying a home was almost 6 months process for us full of yes, no and maybes. But Bob was firmly there. At one point we stopped completely for almost more than a month but when we resumed Bob was equally enthusiastic. When my car was not available, he did not let us use it as an excuse :-) He took us in his car. He helped us get the latest updates in the market by setting up the email posts. When we would visit a home, he would take a look and let us know the pluses and minuses. He gave us complete idea about the whole process and various options we had. He was very responsive and I remember him replying to my emails even late in the nights. I found him reasonably good in pricing the properties and giving us appropriate advice time and again. I would strongly recommend his services.

Bought a home in 2012.
Bob is professional. He is always on time. He cares about buyers. He answers questions fast. He helped me purchase two rental condos. His advice about assessments, the resale certificate, and rental conditions were helpful.

Bought a home in 2012.
Bob was an absolute pleasure to work with. We ended up putting in 13 offers and traveled all over the Puget Sound before we finally landed on the right property for the right price. Bob consistently put our objectives first and steered us away from bad deals even though it meant more road trips on the weekend for him. I was also extremely impressed with Bob's responsiveness. Answers to questions were normally received within a few minutes and, in the instances where he was working with other clients, he was quick to notify me of his situation and provide an ETA on his response. Overall, I found Bob to be professional, responsive, and genuinely interested in finding the right property for our family.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Madison Valley, Seattle, WA.
Bob is incredibly proactive and dedicated. He was quick to spot great potential homes for us, find out all he could about them and collect hundreds of photos. He also made himself extremely available (even on short notice) for repeated visits of all sorts. He has a good eye for defects and gremlins when taking a look at properties.

His guesses and instincts about how much we should bid and how sellers would react to said bids were also spot on.

In short, I could not more highly recommend Bob.

Bob went far and above the call of duty for us more than once in this process. He offered to scout sites, take pictures, and provide extensive reports on a number of places we were interested in, but couldn't view ourselves since we were not in town. Bob also provided us with excellent advice on bids and estimates of the value of the homes we were looking at and the types of neighborhoods they were in (invaluable to buyers who are relocating to a city they don't know), and he was spot on when he offered opinions on whether a bid we suggested might be too high or might mean we would lose out on a house. What is more, this man knows the market and the reno business. He helped us find a contractor who was willing to walk through a potential place and estimate the costs for any changes we might want before we put in a bid. If you are looking for a place in the greater Seattle area Bob Kelly will help you find it. Thanks Bob!
