My experience with Kelli and her team was amazing. They were extremely professional, and made my house look so great that I almost decided not to sell! I would not hesitate to hire them again at any point (and I may ask them to stage my next house just for me – not for selling purposes!) I highly recommend them to anyone looking to stage their home for sale.— Tracey B.
We had been looking for a lake house for a few years and Kelli knew that we had a tight budget. She convinced us to take a look at something that we would have passed on if left on our own - and it turns out we loved it! Even if you are just thinking of buying "some day" I would recommend having Kelli help you no matter what stage you are at.— C. Carroll
My family recently decided to purchase a vacation home in Skaneateles, NY. When we reached out to our circle to find a knowledgeable realtor in the area, one name kept getting recommended and it was Kelli Ide. We took a leap of faith and decided to work with Kelli, never having met her and living about an hour away. It was a great decision and within a week we found our dream vacation home. Because of Kelli’s extensive knowledge of the market, we were able to get a house we had our eye on that was already under contract. The negotiation process was fast and fair. Kelli got us a great deal and we recommend her without any hesitation!— Alison B.
I knew that selling a very unique, historic home in 2020, right in the midst of the Covid lockdown would be a challenge. I also knew that this special house would sell itself if only the audience would come. The listing and presentation were critical to success and Kelli and her team were my design angels! My home was beautifully arranged, and the presentation was absolutely enchanting. I highly recommend that you partner with this incredible group.— Faith G.
Kelli’s excellent customer service skills along with her eye for design, enables the perfect match between clients and their dream properties.
