Team reviews

Kay and her team were invaluable in helping buy several houses so I could start a rental business. She and her team are incredibly knowledgeable and were extremely helpful in not only getting me some quality properties but also, after the purchase, their advice was incredibly insightful. Because of Kay's team's expertise, knowledge, and diligence, I KNOW they saved me thousands of dollars in the purchase process. They were there for me during the purchase and I know I can call anytime for their expert opinion and valuable insight. My rental business would not be as successful as it is if I had settled for another agent. In fact, I trust Kay, Kyle, and their team so much that as soon as they offered property management, I turned over all my properties to them. They have literally saved me $10,000 or more than the last two inept property management companies I used. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for property in the Champaign/Urbana area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $225K in Champaign, IL.

As first time home-buyers, my wife and I were anxious and proceeded with grave caution. We read books, spoke with friends and family, and eventually interviewed various realtors around town. Team Kay Realtor Kyle Harrison was the most professional, charismatic, and helpful candidate we vetted. We learned of his outstanding work ethic by word of mouth.

Looking back on our first home purchase, there is absolutely nothing we would change. Kyle guided us through every step of the process in a courteous, understanding, and caring manner. Months after we purchased our home, he even stopped by simply to inquire as to how we felt about our life's biggest investment. Of course, we were thrilled! Simply put, he is the best. Couldn't recommend him enough.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Champaign, IL.

We have now worked with Kyle on three transactions all related to relocations. Kyle has been exceptional in assisting us through the process. While Kyle’s team did a great job marketing our home, it was his personal service that made the difference. We are a high needs customer. Kyle’s timeliness in managing any issues was terrific. To help facilitate our move, Kyle went above and beyond by assisting us coordinate work being done at our house.

Additionally, I do not think enough can be said about the fact that Kyle sold our house in a down market between Thanksgiving and New Years. My wife and I were hopeful that we would have 4 showing during that time frame. Kyle’s effort delivered 5 showings within the first 4 days and 10 showings prior to a sale contract being drafted.

I highly recommend Kyle Harrison and TeamKay.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Champaign, IL.

I retained the services of Team Kay for both the sale of my prior home and purchase of my current home in the late spring of 2011. At that time, I had no prior experience with realtors, as my first and only home to date had been FSBO. After asking a few of my colleagues and other community figures their recommendation for real estate agents, a reoccurring name kept surfacing: Team Kay. One of my colleagues mentioned he would have one of their agents contact me to meet and answer some of my questions, as selling/buying a home is something that most of us only do a few times in our lives.

It wasn't ten minutes later and my phone rings, and I hear: "Hi, I'm Kyle Harrison with Team Kay, I heard you were interested in selling your home." This kind of prompt and caring service exemplifies what Kyle, Kay, and the rest of their team are all about.

First and foremost, they are professionals. Kyle made it his priority to ensure we had our questions answered in a timely fashion. We discussed the value of my home, the expected timeline given market conditions, and what I should expect when we transition from "selling-mode" to "buying-mode".

Second, they are experts on Champaign-Urbana real estate. They kept our minds at ease despite doom-and-gloom forecasts for real estate everywhere. At a time where foreclosure is facing millions, selling and buying can seem somewhat ominous, but Kyle gave us his bid of confidence and in the end, his predictions of market conditions were correct.

And lastly, they provide a complete and comprehensive service that goes beyond the transaction. Just a few weeks ago (mid-February), I received an electronic copy of my HUD statement from Team Kay with a note that read, "I thought this would be helpful for you for tax preparation."

This kind of service is why I will look no further than Kyle and Kay for all of my future real-estate endeavors! in the end, my wife and I ended up in the perfect home! Thank you both for everything!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $125K in Champaign, IL.

Process did not work as they described it. Not sure if the process changed or there were complications, but things that were supposed to happen did not and we were in the dark to what was happening.

We had to initiate most of the communication that took place after weeks of not hearing from them. Agent seemed to lack knowledge about the ongoing process.

Information was lacking and required us to seek the information.

This made selling our house more stressful than it should have been.
