Before working with Kelley, I had very low expectations of realtors. Based on my own (bad) experiences, I thought that finding the home of your dreams or selling your home for the right price was something that you did on your own or with simple luck, and that realtors were just there to make sure you signed your papers on time. I'm so happy to say how wrong I was.
Kelley worked with us all throughout 2022 so that we could sell our home in Pflugerville and buy the midcentury fixer upper of our dreams. She was there for the first stage of "should we, shouldn't we" all the way to now: Even though we have closed on both properties, she is STILL in the picture, following up, checking in and just being a treasure-trove of insight. I know that she doesn't have to, but I'm so grateful that she insists the relationship doesn't end at closing.
For the sale of our home, Kelley went absolutely above and beyond. Hired stagers, an amazing photographer and included stats about our neighborhood in a beautiful, professional listing. She patiently worked through our worries, took her time with us (there are no stupid questions!) and helped us navigate a quickly changing real estate market. We luckily got a cash buyer, and Kelley negotiated so gracefully and was able to work out the best deal that I could have imagined, which included a free lease-back that is helping us move out on a more laid back timeline.
When it was time to make a purchase on a new home, she really shined - and we did not make it easy! We became obsessed with a 1962 midcentury home in the middle of a new build contract and Kelley was able to pivot us into an amazing deal with the sellers. She worked tirelessly with the other side to get repair costs covered into the multiple tens of thousands, which freed up so much money to help us turn what could have been a tear-down into an updated oasis for our family. She spent hours negotiating better terms with our mortgage company (again, even though she did not have to!) and has come out to see progress on the construction because she is just....happy for us!
At the end of the day, I think what really makes Kelley the best realtor is that she genuinely cares about people finding happiness. You can see it in her actions, in her words, and in the results that she gets. She surrounds herself with the best team, and utilizes a long-standing network of amazing people who are just as genuine and giving as she is.
I think there's something to be said about someone who can call just about anyone and get a favor done at the snap of her fingers - you don't get that by being a "one and done" kind of person. You get that by being someone trustworthy, kind and by being someone who shows up & does the real work.
Kelley does that and so much more. We are so grateful for her.
Working with Kelley Hughes and David Brodsky Properties has been a fantastic experience. They make buying, selling, and renting properties as easy as eating cupcakes! Kelley has been in the business for so long that she can write a book about it. She knows all the ins and outs of the business and I have never been disappointed when closing the deal with her (both as a buyer, seller, and landlord rep). I will continue to do business with them for the foreseeable future and will advise the same for all my family and friends who are in need of a realtor.
I interviewed 5 real estate agents, all of whom came highly recommended, and Kelley was the best.Working with her was fantastic - she understood my goals, explained every part of the process, scheduled house showings quickly and efficiently, and looked out for my interests the whole time. And we closed on a house within 2 months of starting! Will work with her on the next house as well.
From my first inquiry, Kelley was ON IT. I wasn't sure what to expect after having a poor realtor experience when buying my first place. I was shocked to find out what a good realtor was supposed to do. But Kelley isn't just good, she is AMAZING. She held my hand through the entire selling and buying process, educating (and re-educating) me along the way, gracefully put up with my impatient and indecisive personality, communicating promptly, and most importantly was/is my biggest advocate. Every action she took was in my best interest. The listing Kelley created for my sale was so good it made me question selling. She thought of things I never would have (even my my seasoned friends and family were impressed with her knowledge). When people didn't believe a contingent contract could happen in this market, Kelley made it happen. I'm so thankful she was recommended to me and that she made sure I got my dream home.
There are real estate agents and then there is Kelley Hughes.
In short, Kelley made the entire home selling process as seamless as it could have been. She kept my family in the loop on all the details but was also right there with us to guide us on what she thought the best steps would be.
I've worked with a lot of agents and Kelley by far is up there with the best. I highly recommend working with her!
Kelley was recommended by a friend and I can see why—she is simply the best. This was my first home purchase and she walked me through every step of the way. The home buying process can be overwhelming and convoluted with real estate jargon, but she made everything clear. Her engagement made me feel confident in my purchase. She is an absolute rockstar, give this gal a raise!
Kelly was referred to us and I’m so glad she was! She was so easy to talk to and made the process as simple as possible! We contacted Kelly on July 3, and by July 29 we were closing!! She is amazing and will forever be our realtor if we ever need one.
Kelley did a tremendous job helping us find a beautiful home in Austin. She helped us navigate the challenging buying process and she continues to help even after the home closing process. She is a great ambassador for David Brodsky & team. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Central Texas.
If you are looking into buying a home look no further than Kelley, she was absolutely amazing. My wife and I just closed on our first house and we couldn't of done it without Kelley. She was extremely knowledgeable and explained everything to us every step of the way. The best part is her primary goal was to make sure we were happy, you can tell she really cares about her clients. Believe me when I say you cannot go wrong with Kelley. Thank you Kelley you're the best.
Thank you for sharing your experience working with Kelley! We're so happy that you had a great experience with Kelley. Her care and dedication really show in everything she does.
If you are looking into buying a home or selling your home, Kelley is who you want by your side. I didn’t know much or didn’t know what I was to expect when purchasing my first home but I’m glad I had Kelley there every step of the way. She was quick to respond at ANY hour of the day. If I had any questions or doubts about anything, she found a solution or had options for me. She is patient and extremely educated and knows what she is doing! She is an amazing realtor with so much knowledge. She wants what is best for you and will make sure you’re happy with your home purchase! I would 100% recommend Kelley to anyone looking to buy or sell. Thank you Kelley, you are awesome!
