I am truly passionate about real estate.
I love the art of preparing a listing for the market, including professional photography, writing property descriptions that are impossible to ignore, as well as making sure your property has optimal digital and print exposure through Sotheby's various international websites and print mediums. I thoroughly enjoy working with clients looking to buy a specific or unique type of property to meet their current stage of life or investment goals. The process of searching, honing in, and developing a plan for the negotiation process is always challenging and always rewarding. I thoroughly enjoy the variety of people that I meet through the process. The relationships I have made are truly the highlight of my career.
After 2 months we finally finished dealing with the move and finally sat down to enjoy the treat you helped us purchase. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness, the extra key set you had made for our daughter, and most of all, your assistance in helping to reserve the elevator for us on our moving date.
I just wanted to thank you again for the marvelous help you have provided to me in bringing the sale of my property in Vancouver to such a successful conclusion. Starting with your advise in setting an asking price to the signing of the final agreement, your professionalism has fulfilled every expectation that I might have had.
We were really happy with Kelly's service. She made us feel comfortable and ensured that we received a fair deal. Even today, more than a year after our purchase, Kelly remains in contact with us. We truly appreciate her concern and kindness she has shown to our daughters and our family!
Kelly was extremely professional, compassionate to our needs, and considerate to our concerns. In addition to this, she provided smart and honest feedback on both properties we viewed and on the sale of our property. She was always available to answer our questions, and brought lots of potential purchasers to our house for sale. We would recommend Kelly Raabe DeJong to future purchasers and sellers!
