When I went on the search for my first home I had no idea what I was doing, luckily for me I got Kelli as my realtor. She was so easy to talk to and very knowledgeable of the areas and whole process. We went on the hunt for a house and she helped me along the way to finding my beautiful home. I couldn’t be happier to have Kelli on my side!

Kelli did an excellent job showing us homes in the area. She kept us informed of progress during the process up until our closing day. After our closing she’s been following up on what we need like the homestead tax credit, etc. She done an excellent job helping us during our move.

Kelli did a great job of working with us to sell our property. We met beforehand and she went over the whole process and explained what to expect and time frames. She received an offer in 2 days of advertising the property which we accepted. She worked with the inspections and handled any issues that were needed promptly so that everything went smoothly at closing. All of the required paperwork was taken care of so that we didn't have to worry about anything.

Great job Kelli.

Kelli is skilled, very through, and professional. We were able too complete the whole process electronically which was most helpful. She is among the best agents I have had the pleasure of working with.

Kelli is the most phenomenal realtor that I have ever worked with.. She was very helpful in letting me know what I needed to do to put my house on the market.. I did what she said and my house sold in less than 48 hours.

Kelli was extremely patient with. me as I have a tendency to get a little stressed out. She remained very calm, which with me can be very hard!

Some of the people helping me move were so impressed they said she would be their realtor when they were ready to move.

If you hire Kelli Excell you are hiring a WINNER!!

Kelli has been a great agent/broker to work with. She kept us informed. She showed us any home we wanted to see without any pressure to make a decision. She worked hard to understand our needs and our personal preferences.
We bought a home she showed us and now she is working to sell my home.
I couldn't ask for anyone better to work with. I've learned why realtors earn their commission.

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.

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!

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.
