Buying a Home In Seattle with Kelley Roberts
With over eight years experience as a full time Seattle Real Estate Broker, Kelley has proven herself in what matters most, taking extraordinary care of her clients. Which is why it is no surprise that almost all of her business is already generated through repeat clients and referrals, those who trust and enjoy working with her. Kelley is committed to real estate for the long haul. And her descisions and advice are based on earning your referrals for life, not just earning the next commission. In an industry that often lacks integrity and a long-term perspective, Kelley guides you to investments that make sense long term, not just a quick sale.
attention to detail
Kelley's attention to detail ensures you are a more educated purchaser. From rusty baseboard nails indicating past water damage, to a closed curtain concealing an unsightly neighbor, Kelley looks for red flags to protect your investment.
The right combination of guts and grace. Kelley has a keen sense for what strategies will merit the best results for you when it comes to negotiating and has the social tact to deliver them effectively. She believes you can be aggressive and bold while also being professional and courteous. Her ability to build rapport among Realtors in Seattle has earned her a strong network of working agent relationships.
Kelley will tell you if she does not think it is a wise investment or a realistic lifestyle fit. She give honest advice about the pros and cons of the home so you have a smart exit strategy (how to sell your home) right when you purchase it.
Kelley doesn't leave any stone unturned when it comes to research. Her curious nature and painstakingly thorough research style result in you being a very informed buyer. She combines value analysis methods from comparable sales, homes that did not sell, value changes over time, and current competition to reach an accurate assessment on home values, independent of list price.

Kelley is a big believer in planning ahead, if you are in the research stage of home-buying but not quite ready to buy, schedule one of Kelley's advanced home-buying preparedness consultations.
