Kathleen Kelly works with me as a REALTOR. She focuses on our Internet marketing program. It is great working together and our individual strengths make us a great business team.
Mike started his real estate career as an investor. He would buy a house fix it up and sell it for a profit. He has done this several times and still try to do a few a year, but since he earned my real estate license in 2006, he have been fully committed to mastering this craft.
We truly believe that the Hickory NC area is primed for greatness and we want to be there when it happens. We are very excited about the future prospects of our area and hopefully over the years others will be as well.

If I had to pick something to specialize in then I would say that it would be helping move-up buyers find the right home for their needs. One of the best ways to help someone find the right home is to visit their current home to see what they like and what they dislike about their current home, it also gives you an understanding of how they currently live and decorate and it is easier for you to picture them living somewhere else.
I am also good with the out of town buyer, since I have only lived in the area for about three years, it is still fresh in my mind the special nuances our area has to offer a person who is not from the area.
I recently earned my GRI and CRS designations from the NC Association of Realtors.
When you see the letters "GRI" after an agent's name, you can count on receiving the knowledge and guidance you need to make your transaction go smoothly. In short, you can count on getting the best service available from a real estate professional.
The Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) is the highest Designation awarded to sales associates in the residential sales field. The CRS Designation recognizes professional accomplishments in both experience and education. I am very proud of this accomplishment and I hope that the knowledge I have gained from that experience will allow me to help my clients even more.
Through this great program I learned about the latest topics influencing the way potential clients buy and sell real estate when it comes to energy efficiency as well as "living green". Being an EcoBroker® will help me stay current with the growing green real estate market and the opportunities it presents. Many real estate professionals focus on the normal visual features of a home.
This program has changed the way I look at things though allowing me to focus on the things that make my properties stand out from the crowd from an energy efficiency standpoint. I do not think that living green is just a fad as many people in the industry believe. With energy prices getting more and more expensive I think that people will truly embrace being green if for no other reason than just from a cost savings standpoint.
Attention Fellow Agents:
I am a big fan of referrals so please feel free to refer clients to me if you are from out of the area. I will treat them like part of the family.

The service and personal attention we received from Mike Kelly was exceptional. His experience and contacts in the area made selling our house in a difficult market possible. One of the most important business skills to have is communication and Mike Kelly had exceeded our expectations for a Realtor. No matter what question we had, he was there to answer quickly and professionally. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Hickory Real Estate Group to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process. - Ryan
Mike Kelly made selling our home a great experience. He took a very difficult situation and made it work by going above and beyond our expectations. If you are looking for a realtor who truly cares about his clients, give Mike a call. I guarantee you will not regret it. We are forever grateful. - Gina
Mike Kelly was fantastic! He made the whole experience of finding a new home, which I was extremely scared of, very easy and free of stress. He was professional, always available, and really friendly. You can tell that he really cares about helping you find a new home. I would highly recommend Mike to everyone. You won't regret it! - Bill
Mike is really committed to each client and dedicates himself fully to finding you the perfect place. He's flexible, patient, and always looking out for you first. This was our first experience buying a house and we could have easily become overwhelmed. Mike did a great job working with us through the whole process and made everything simple and easy to manage. Hickory Real Estate Group is small but agile, and they focus on the client, not their bottom line. They provide a level of service you just can't get with some larger franchise realty company. I'm recommending Hickory Real Estate Group to everyone I know. - Andrew
