“Kelly has a great positive and energy filling attitude that brightens any room. She instantly connects with everyone, a critical component to selling your home! If you want your home sold for top dollar and quickly, then you have to go with Kelly to list your home. We are very lucky to have met her! Thank you Kelly!”
Jon Bittner (Seller)
“My family has known Kelly since we moved to Brambleton almost five years ago. Once we got to know her, we knew when it was time to sell our home she would be our realtor. When we decided to sell, we called Kelly and she handled every detail from that point forward. Kelly listed our home at midnight Saturday morning and we accepted an offer less than 18 hours later. Not only did she sell our home quickly, amazingly, she coordinated everything (while out of the country for a week!) so well that we move into our new home exactly five weeks after asking her to sell our home. I've always been wary of doing business with friends but we made an exception with Kelly and we are so pleased we did. She is incredibly professional and considerate and made the entire process as stress-free as it could be. We would highly recommend Kelly to anyone looking to buy or a sell a home in Loudoun County! ”
Andrew James, Brambleton, Virginia (Seller)
“I feel so fortunate that I met Kelly and ultimately used her as my buying and selling agent. After 20 years in my previous home, I was nervous about the process. Kelly took care of me. She was always available when I had questions or concerns and knew the answers to my questions. I cannot imagine using anyone else in the future.”
Eddie M, Brambleton, VA (Buyer)
“Kelly is an excellent listener--she identified our needs and efficiently and effectively found properties that fit them. She didn't waste our time and helped us complete the transaction in an economical and efficient manner. Kelly is very knowledgeable of the Loudon County area and helped us understand the subtleties of the community so that we could make the best possible decision re "location, location, location." If you want to deal with a real pro, she's the real deal.”
Rich Kalich, Spofford, NH (Buyer)
“I cannot begin to thank Kelly enough for her assistance in my home purchase. She literally held my hand and walked me through every process. She even worked on my home purchase while on her family vacation in Mexico. I would highly recommend Kelly to anyone needing an agent in Loudoun County. ”
Christine Armatrong, Brambleton, VA. (Buyer)
“I have purchased four other homes in Virginia and did not have positive experiences with previous realtors, which left me jaded when considering selling my home and purchasing a new one. I cannot begin to explain how wonderful my home selling and buying experience was thanks to Kelly Elson!! She changed my perspective entirely!! Kelly is very knowledgable of the industry, honest, friendly, and above all paid close attention to every detail throughout this process. Kelly was NEVER to busy to answer a question, provide advice or make time to see another property. Kelly ensured I was informed and comfortable with each step of the process. Purchasing and selling a home are stressful events in anyone's life, however, Kelly Elson made this experience for me smooth and stress free!!! I cannot say enough positive things about Kelly and the experience I had with her. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a positive, efficient and smooth experience!!”
Clorissa, Ashburn VA (Seller)
“We had an incredibly positive experience working with Kelly Elson. She was organized, professional, and positive throughout the process. She listened to our needs and was responsive all along the way. She went above and beyond to ensure that both our sale and purchase went through smoothly. I highly recommend her without hesitation. ”
Sarah D., Ashburn (Seller)
“Kelly went above and beyond in every aspect throughout the sale of our home. She helped teach us about the market, explained the sales process and contractual offers being presented. She did her research and also worked with other brokers in the area to understand market trends, get a gauge for traffic on their listings and came up with unique ways to market and advertise our home. The photographer did an amazing job and the photos were flawless. The flyer's Kelly created were absolutely gorgeous. She also created a unique listing website for our home that we shared out on social media. We were informed of every showing and was given feedback on each and every visit. We were also provided with helpful showing and open house tips which proved very successful. Kelly was very patient with us and our schedule to ensure there were no scheduling conflicts or inconveniences. She did a great job of keeping myself, my husband and our real estate agent on the pending sale of our new home in the loop. It was really impressive! I have already referred other friends to Kelly Elson at Century 21. There are so many agents to chose from these days, referrals are very important. I would never sell or buy another property in VA without working with Kelly and her team. The entire process is stressful enough and we've worked with agents in the past that have exacerbated that stress. Kelly was patient with us even when we were losing our cool and that speaks volumes to her character and drive to succeed. Kelly is a delight to work with. She is positive, confident and outright fun. We we're not the easiest sellers to work with as we really had no idea what we we're doing or what we wanted for the next chapter of our lives. Kelly was supportive and encouraging through the entire process. Her optimism makes her really easy to work with and her willingness to go the extra mile solidifies her good intentions. Most importantly, she was reliable and that really meant a lot to my husband and I. We closed on our house with not only a new Real Estate agent to utilize in the future but also a new friend. If you're looking to work with someone that works incredibly hard and gets the job done right, I would highly recommend using Kelly Elson as your next Real Estate agent. ”
Meghan Myers, Leesburg VA (Seller)
“Kelly is absolutely wonderful to work with. She listens to all your needs in a home and being an out of state home buyer she really made the process go very smoothly . She picked up the slack where we couldn’t ! Would recommend her to anyone ! ”
Heather- Front Royal Va (Buyer)
“I interviewed Kelly when I was initially searching for a realtor to sell my property. The very first time I met Kelly I knew that she would be the perfect realtor for my needs. She was extremely outgoing and had a very good knowledge of the Brambleton, Ashburn area. In fact, I believe because she lives in the area, she brought something to the table that other realtors could not; a first hand experience of what it is like to live in the area. Kelly was more than just a realtor to me. She became my confidante, my therapist, my family and my friend, all while remaining totally professional when it came to every aspect of selling my home. Kelly is the first realtor I have ever met who was willing to go above and beyond to assist her client (me) with every aspect of the sale of my home. Because I am disabled, I needed more assistance than most clients would need from their realtor. Kelly was there whenever I needed that help. She had no compunction when it came to telling me that she believed I had too much furniture in my condo or too much stuff, overall for a condo of its size. However, more importantly, Kelly had no qualms about rolling up her sleeves and helping declutter my home. When she couldn't be there herself, Kelly would often send her friend or a family member to help (assuming it was both okay with me and appropriate to do so) in order not to disappoint me. The one thing I know for sure is that if I had it to do all over again, knowing what I know now... I would not change a thing. Additionally, if you want the best realtor you can find anywhere, stop looking because you have found her in Kelly Elson.”
