Kelli was beyond wonderful. We moved from California, and had no idea about the housing market out here. Kelli was always cheerful, and took us to so many houses, answered every question. After months of searching, we finally found our home. Kelli is a gem to work with, and I highly recommend her for any housing needs.

I live in Washington and my home was being sold in Iowa. Kelli took care of everything, from staging, showing, paperwork and all the way to closing. She did such an excellent job in keeping me updated on all of the stages. I trusted her judgement and recommendations to get the best price and the right clients. The process made it easy for me, stress free and max profit! Kelli and her team definitely deserved more than FIVE stars!!

Kelli was so wonderful to work with! This was our first time selling a house, and we had moved out of state before we could get it listed. Kelli took care of everything, from getting it staged to listing and showing it to handling the paperwork and details of negotiating the closing. We were so happy and impressed with Kelli, and so grateful for how smooth she made the entire process for us! We only wish we could have used her as our buying agent for our new home!

We were first-time home buyers and really didn't know anything about the process. We were so lucky to have a realtor who knew what she was doing and was able to walk us through the whole thing. House-shopping with three small children can be difficult, but Kelli made the experience fun and low stress. She was easy to work with, we were confident trusting her expertise, and ended up getting a house even better than we were expecting!

I don’t know where to start! Kelli worked with me for about a year as I casually started looking at homes while living in FL. I spent a week in August looking at homes and found the Ames market FAST, homes selling within 24 hours. We finally found our home and within 30 days closed! Kelli helped me find the mortgage lender and went above and beyond, bringing the seller down $4,000 after inspection. I love the home and feel indebted to Kelli and her team!

She is awesome. She points out the flaws pretty much right away and doesn’t sugarcoat anything unlike other realtors.

We were first time home buyers and Kelli was awesome! She was always looking at the potential problem areas in the houses we were looking at and letting us know what to look for. She's not just trying to make a commission, she truly wants you to love where you are going to live!

My brother and I worked with Kelli to sell our small and unique apartment building. We got an offer for the price we asked on the first week it was listed! She kept us up to date on the process and made it easy. Appreciated her professionalism and work!

Before we listed our house we felt overwhelmed, we needed to sell a house owned by four sisters with one sisters share in an estate (complicate this with not living in the same town).
We found the right professional for us Kelli Excell. Kelli helped us not only with getting everyone in agreement with the listing but helped us with the licensing, insurance and estate issues that arose as well.
Her communication with all of us both individually and as a group was overwhelmingly appreciated.
Kelli our family thinks you.

Kelli was the realtor we worked with when buying our first home, she's very good at what she does, and did a wonderful job helping us understand the process of buying a home. She was very professional, and I would definitely recommend Kelli to others, I would work with her again in the future if we needed a knowledgeable, experienced, and professional realtor.

We used Kelli as a buyers agent after finding a house we wanted with her as the listing agent. Kelli balanced acting as both buyer and sellers agent and worked out a solution that benefited all of us. We enjoyed working with Kelli during the home buying experience and she made it a painless process for us. We would not hesitate to buy or sell with Kelli again!

Kelli was great to work with! She has lots of energy and will work with you to get what you need negotiated for the purchase. I would absolutely recommend Kelli to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Ames area!

Kelli did an amazing job, helping us find our home. She always found the answers to our questions, and had contacts for anything we needed once we were in our home too. This has been an amazing process, and much better than any other home-buying experience I have ever had. Thanks Kelli!

Mr
We were the buyers from the dark side, we put Kelli through hell and back, but she stuck with us and on the third attempt we got our dream house. Put your trust and your home needs in Kelli’ and you won’t be disappointed. She’s awesome!!

Kelli did a great job for us selling our home. She provided a full suite of advertising channels from traditional print brochures and distribution of the listing to real estate data bases, to a state of the art 3D walk-through photo tour. She followed up promptly on all outstanding issues and even handled last minute crisis situations like a pro. We would highly recommend Kelli to provide top-notch real estate services in an effective and professional manner as she did for us.

Kelli provided phenomenal service! She was very prompt in responding back to questions and concerns throughout this process. I felt like she ALWAYS had my best interest at heart from the start to closing. She worked quickly to get me viewing homes and beat the deadline of a lease ending in my apartment. From start to finish, I recieved the keys for my new home before the lease ended with 1 month to spare! I would highly recommend her!! You're the BEST Kelli! Thank you and continued blessings.
