With total emphasis on an active home search rather than a passive one, I work diligently to take the criteria we’ve decided on and help you locate your future home. Auto searches are helpful, but true results come from being on the court, not in the stands.
They say communication is key, and for me, this couldn’t be more truthful. When we work together, you will always be up to date and in-the-know. Additionally, staying present and on top of current market trends and conditions is vital to helping us reach our goal of finding your new home.
Knowledge is power and believe it or not, there is a lot to learn when it comes to buying your next home. Whether it’s your first time or your tenth, I am there to meet you wherever you are in your home-buying experience. The only wrong question is the one that wasn’t asked, and it is my ongoing objective to keep you informed and up to date.
You would not believe how many steps we have to take together before you get to enjoy your new home. However, I am there with you every step of the way as your go-to guide to ensure a stress-free experience.
Building strong relationships with my clients from start to finish is what I do. Here's how I can help you during the selling process:
Preparing your home to go on the market can end up seeming like a never-ending to-do list. By keeping up with current trends and topics, I use my relevant experience and knowledge to guide my sellers with realistic suggestions for what to do, what not to do, what to spend and so on.
Before we hit the market and beyond, I take the time to thoroughly understand your neighborhood and the local market to ensure that we are strategically priced and competitively positioned for maximum return on time and money.

“They communicated too much...” said no one ever. After years of experience, I know without a doubt that one of the key differences between a good outcome and an extraordinary one is solid communication.
Displaying past sales can be helpful for consumers to get an idea of Kelly's skill and ability, but showcasing her portfolio of experiences and scenarios demonstrates both her capability and expertise.
TROMBLEY RIDGE | SNOHOMISH | $1.2M - $1.6M
Trombley Ridge, a first of its kind luxury home community in Snohomish County, was the culmination of tremendous work ethic and tireless persistence. Comprised of 6 luxury homes, all custom built, and located on 5-acre parcels, Trombley Ridge set a new standard for defining luxury living in the Snohomish area. Kelly and her team oversaw every step of the process, including land-platting, design, construction, and placement of new homeowners. Defying the odds, Kelly singlehandedly sold every available home in Trombley Ridge in a record 10 months!
SPECIFIC BUYER | WEST BELLEVUE | $2.2M
This transaction was a testament to Kelly's patience and perseverance. After being told by her new Buyer that there were just a "few" non-negotiable requirements for their new home, Kelly got right to it and began scouring the area for a match. The buyer needed a large home in a specific neighborhood, there had to be an ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) for elderly parents, a large outdoor living space, and the front door had to face a specific direction. These must-have's proved to be quite the challenge, but after 7 months of everyday searching, Kelly finally located the perfect home, ticking every single box on the list.
UNIQUE LISTING | BOTHELL | $990,000
Almost everyone loves a great view. But more often than not, in order to get one, there's nowhere to go but up. This beautiful home posed quite the challenge to many potential buyers for this very reason: it was located on a very steep incline. After pulling out all of the stops to get it market ready, Kelly created unique incentives to attract the perfect buyer, including a higher than average commission for the selling agent! Luckily, all of her efforts paid off, and Kelly was able to present her Sellers with an offer that was 99% of the original list list price ($1,000,000) in only 30 days.
Kelly Kemp an extraordinary realtor who able to have your transaction A-Z first class! You would be foolish not to hire her when you sell or look for a home. She is fantastic with clients and her negotiating skills are phenomenal! I have already recommended her to several of my friends as SHE IS THE BEST!
I contacted Kelly Kemp through Zillow because I was offered a job in the Seattle area and I had heard good things about her from a colleague that also relocated there. My focus was in and around Kirkland. I found Kelly to be very professional and responsive. We are still on the hunt and Kelly is helping us find the best property. So far her advice has been right on point. I would definitely recommend her to others looking for a great agent.
Kelly is extremely professional and is great with communication. She pays attention to all the small details and really believes in quality photos/advertising for your house. I highly recommend her services!
