She did an absolutely wonderful job for me. She we quick to respond if there was a house available, and she worked for us not a paycheck. Would definitely use her again if need be.

Kelli Excell did an "excellent" job of selling a Townhome for us. Throughout the whole process she consistently gave us good advice and made the journey as smooth as humanly possible. From the beginning her knowledge and effort proved invaluable in achieving the end goal of selling our property. She researched similar properties and arrived at a price that was both fair to us as the sellers and still attractive to potential buyers. Her ability to present our property on her website resulted in a quick turn around as our property sold in 5 days. We give Kelli and her agency high marks and would recommend them to anyone. After all Kelli was recommended to us from another one of her happy customers.

Very pleased. Finding a cash buyer in a slow market was outstanding. Positive attitude and frequent updates made us feel confident that our house would sell quickly.

I have worked with Kelli for more than 5 years for buying and selling properties. She is a very responsible professional and is always responsive. For my recent property that was just sold, Kelli has done a great job in coordinating the property repair closing and repair. Thank you for the great work, Kelli!

Kelli is an outstanding realtor and a pleasure to work with. We were searching for a special property (for a second home) and spent more than 7 months with Kelli reviewing options. Knowledgeable and patient throughout the process, she never pressured us and helped us find a truly great home. Recommend her highly!

Realtor and Property Manager
I joined Kelli's team in July after moving to Iowa from out of state. I've worked with several brokers in the past and her and the rest of the office are by far the most pleasant group of people I have ever had the privilege of working with. She is always available if I have questions and her judgment and knowledge of real estate is top notch!

Kelli is an amazing Realtor and Broker! I first met Kelli while searching for a home myself to purchase. Kelli always went out of her way for us. She was great at pointing out the positive and negative features of each home as well. She is the perfect example of what a Realtor should be.

Kelli is also no different when it comes to being a Broker. I enjoyed Kelli's work ethic and friendship so much that I decided to work with her! Kelli puts others first. She will be sure to answer any questions you have. The work environment she has created is like none other I've ever experienced. I look forward to coming to work every day! I enjoy all my co-workers whom I consider like family. With all of NextHome's tools and their friendly service center it is impossible not to succeed. Their cutting edge technology and design will be sure to not only catch your eyes but everyone else's too! I cannot image working anywhere else!

Kelli assisted my wife and I through a very difficult home closing in which Michelle was in southern Utah and I was in Italy. We appreciated both Kelli's assistance and advice throughout the entire home selling process, from preparation for listing (we had an offer on the house within a couple of days of listing) through closing.

Michelle and I (Jim) wholeheartedly recommend Kelli and NextHome to anyone who wishes to sell their home.

Kelly did a great job working with us from start to finish. She helped with getting a fair price, and all the way through the closing of the house.
Thanks for all you did

Kelli was such a pleasure to work with. She was polite and professional through the entire process. She really made our first time home buying experience a breeze!

Kelli Excell was an excellent realtor!! She went above and beyond what any other realtor has ever done for me. She took an entire day to do a "tour of homes" with me and was so knowledgeable that I really felt like the home choice I was making was a smart choice. She was always available by email or text an answered any questions I had. I really can't say enough good things about Kelli she made my home buying experience wonderful!

Kelli Excell has exceeded our expectations! We couldn't find a home within our timeframe and she stepped in a found us a property to rent in the meantime. She was patient and very helpful when we were ready to make our final decision.

Kelli Excell far exceeded our expectations! We needed to find a home quickly and she helped us do just that by providing us with her time, prompt communication, and fully listening to our needs and wants in a home. Our transition was very smooth and much of that is due to Kelli and her Realtor experience.

We have worked with Kelli for almost 6 years in attempts to sell our home in Story City. Kelli helped us locate numerous renters for the property over the years and finally found and secured a buyer for the home as well. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with her. She has always been kind, understanding, and caring, and took such great care of the home while we lived in another state. When any issues came up (and many did)--she was always immediately finding solutions and making sure things got resolved. We could not have asked for a better person to help us with this long journey with this home. We are very thankful for Kelli. She would be an amazing fit for anyone who has a home they would like to buy/sell/rent/ etc.

Thank you Kelli!

Kelli was a great realtor; she was quick at responding to texts, and got us in to places that our previous realtor couldn't have. Since she's been in the business a while, she knows all the other realtors in the area, so that usually can be used to your advantage in getting you the home you want. The whole process was calm and our negotiations worked out really well for us. We got our home for almost $10,000 less than the appraisal, so it was a super great situation for us.

First-time homebuyers
I wish I could give Kelli one million stars. She has been amazing to work with. She pointed out issues in the homes we looked at, so that we were aware of what work might need to be done. We had trouble with the our, and she fought for us the whole way. It was great to have someone so wholly on our side.

Even now, after the sale, I can still reach out to her and ask questions about home ownership. She is extremely personable and made the home-buying process fun and easy to understand. She helped us research properties before we went to them and made sure we knew what we were getting into. I can't say enough good things!

I thought Kelly did an excellent job. She answered all my questions and did a price analysis on the property comparing it to comparable sales in the area. She was very accommodating to our schedule.

When we looked for a Realtor, the most important thing was to find someone who was aggressive in looking for the right property. Kelli is the best I have ever worked with - a great communicator, she gave trustworthy advice, and she worked hard to find us the right property. I'd use her again, any time.
