Testimonials for Kelly McGovern
I had the pleasure of working with Kelly McGovern on my house sale in Douglas, Ma. This was the first house I’ve sold and had no experience or any idea on what the process was. I was impressed when upon our first meeting, Kelly had already done a market analysis of the house so we were able to speak numbers on pricing right from the start. Kelly was able to make suggestions for easy-upgrades to the house so it would show better. As I was living in a different state during the week, Kelly always made herself available on weekends for any meetings or support that I needed. She uses her own photographer and they did a wonderful job staging the house for the sale. We were very fortunate to have four showings the first day that the house was on the market, and had two offers the next day.
As I was no longer living in the house or locally, I would NOT have been able to make this sale happen in such a timely fashion without all of Kelly’s hard work and dedication. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell a home. Thanks again Kelly!!

Kelly was an exceptional real estate agent for my wife and I. From beginning to end she made the home buying process one in which we felt comfortable and well taken care of. Kelly was always available for any questions we had and happily took us to see any houses we were interested in. When we found the right house for us, she went to work to make it happen. She listened to our needs and gave sound advice. Kelly led us to a great mortgage broker, lawyer, and anyone else we would possibly need to contact. If you are looking for someone to guide you through the process of looking for a home, I would highly recommend calling Kelly.
Thank you Kelly for the great job you did in selling my house! After the 2nd time on the market you knew exactly what to do to get sold within a couple of months. I appreciate all the time you put into it!
I was actually happy and sad when Kelly found me the perfect house for me and my family. Happy that the search came to end but sad that I didn't get to work with Kelly on a daily basis anymore. Kelly made my house purchase go absolutely flawless. Kelly has something special, it is called determination and positive attitude. I felt zero pressure from Kelly to purchase a home that wasn't absolute perfect for me. I would recommend Kelly 10 out of 10 times.

"Once in a great while one meets a person of exceptional character, ability and motivation. I first met Kelly about a year ago when my wife and I where searching for a new home. From the moment we met her, her drive and competence were immediately apparent and she became our exclusive buyer's agent. She quickly learned what we were looking for and never hesitated to point out features of a house she thought might not be to our liking. This was VERY IMPORTANT because her honesty lead us to trust her right away. Within a month of meeting her we found an ideal house for us, which we subsequently purchased. Kelly's calm, professional demeanor greatly helped us through the negotiating process.
When it came time to sell our previous home, there was never any doubt we would use Kelly as our seller's agent. Her advice was essential and I believe ultimately lead to our home selling in about 30 days! Kelly's deliberate, precise analysis of the market in our neighborhood helped me to take the emotion out of the transaction; and thanks to Kelly I believe we got the best price we could get given the comparables in our neighborhood and the market trends in our county.
One of Kelly's most impressive qualities is her razor sharp focus on the closing date. Once the Offer to Purchase was in effect, Kelly never lost sight of the ultimate goal: CLOSE THE DEAL. During both the purchase of our new home and the sell of our old home, Kelly made countless phone calls and road trips to third parties on my behalf resolving issues that might have otherwise delayed the closing date. As a result of her diligence, both closing dates occurred as originally scheduled in the Offer to Purchase.
I have no doubt Kelly McGovern would succeed in whatever endeavor she chose to pursue. It is in her nature to do so. I believe you are fortunate to have such a person on your staff."

"We just really want you to know how much we appreciate everything you've done for us. We know that everyone is a first-time home buyer at some point, but John and I both know how many questions we asked, how many houses we had you show us and how many phone calls you had to make on our behalf. We are so incredibly appreciative of you 'decoding' the process for us, and we really would never have gotten to this point had it not been for all your help! If anyone ever asks for references, or we ever have the chance to recommend you, we will be absolutely happy to do so. Thank you so much!"

"Our relationship with Kelly McGovern began when we called to view a house she was the listing agent on. That house did not pan out for us, but Kelly would hang with us for the next 10 months while we viewed many properties that Kelly recommended and others we saw separately. We were not in any hurry and Kelly never made us feel pressured. We ended up buying the second house we looked at with Kelly, 10 months later when the Sellers began accepting offers. This process is new to us and Kelly spent time educating us and giving us the confidence we needed to move forward to final purchase. Overall the search and purchase of our home was a positive, relaxed experience. Kelly made that possible and we truly appreciate it."

"We just bought our first home and unlike all predictions for a very stressful and overwhelming experience, this was not. Kelly (McGovern) just took us for a "funky house-buying ride," showed us over 20 different houses, never rushed us and made sure all our questions were answered. When we finally found our dream home, she reacted fast and made sure all paperwork was done timely and promptly. Kelly is knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. We recommend her to anyone who values good attitude and professionalism. Job well done, Kelly! Thanks!"
