    My Client Testimonials

    We went from putting out feelers to selling and closing on our home of 38 years in three months. Although there were rough patches due to unforeseen updates, and difficulty in finding folks to do the work in a timely fashion we had support, suggestions, and help with Kelley. Her list of contacts is second to none. When there was a question she was prompt in getting to us and willing to work with us in finding the answers or help that we needed. She kept us in the loop and kept us on top of things that needed to be completed. Although we had a few "hiccups" along the way, Kelley was ready with a contact or info that helped get us over the hurdle. She was a our best "task master" and our best "cheerleader." She found answers when needed and went the extra mile to help. ~ Maureen Brown, Gorham

    As first time home buyers we were lost in a competitive market. We got advice from coworkers to find an experienced agent who does real-estate full time. Kelley Skillin-Smith was so helpful and knowledgeable in finding and securing our first home. The tips she provided and frank conversations about what our life would be like in each home we toured were so valuable. We could tell Kelley really cared about us and finding the right home we would be truly happen in. We would highly recommend Kelley to any first time homebuyer that might feel overwhelmed with jumping into real-estate. Flash forward 5 years when it came time for us to sell our home and move back to our hometown, Kelley was our first call. Kelley exceeded expectations as a sellers agent. She helped us set a plan for selling our home step by step, we felt like her only client at all times. Kelley's marketing of our home blew us away. The pictures were AMAZING, which really sealed the deal for potential buyers. We had five over asking offers within a week because Kelley marketed our home correctly and aggressively in a fast paced market. Hands down the biggest concern we had was the appraisal of our home. Kelley worked so hard for us during the appraisal, really showing off the unique features of our home and property. She successfully portrayed the value we saw and the buyers saw in our home. We can't say enough good things about Kelley, she is an excellent buyers/sellers agent and a genuinely caring person. Experience matters in real-estate and we felt confident with Kelley by our side. ~ Max Kenney, Hollis, ME
    Kelley was wonderful to work with and was with me every step of the way. She advised, calmed any qualms I had, and frequently checked to see how I was doing. Kelley is fantastic! She basically held my hand the entire time, from decluttering for a yard sale, to staging the house for pictures, to the actual weekend of showings, and then through the process of sorting through the offers and helping me to make the right decision for me. She made everything as easy as it could possibly be. I had been in my home for 44 years, and she understood how much it had meant to me and my family. I feel very fortunate to have had Kelley as my agent, and now as a new friend! ~ Carolyn Bowers, Gorham ME
    She is very personable, knowledgeable, informative and an all around Sweet professional caring broker! #1 in my book!!! ~ Debbie Hunter, Portland, ME

    Kelley you were an angel sent to me for a purpose. You made everything so easy and smooth. You literally made me feel so welcome and at ease. I will never forget you. Thank you again. ~ Shannon Allain West Newfield Maine
    Kelley was an excellent agent for the purchase of our first home. Her understanding of the area, the market, and the realities of home ownership and maintenance were incredibly helpful and we're thrilled with the home we purchased under her guidance. If and when we decide to purchase another property, we won't hesitate to reach out to her again. ~ Alex and Jess, Windham
    Kelley Skillin- Smith was absolutely amazing. She catered to our every need. She answered all of our questions. She has a great amount of knowledge with EVERYTHING having to do with buying a house. We could call Kelley at any time and she was always available or would get back to us within the hour. Kelley and I went to a few showings and she gave me her honest opinion of the home. She was not quick to have my family get into a house, she wanted us to have the PERFECT house. I have already recommended Kelley to family and friends. We did not have just a realtor but have gained a life-long friend. Thank you Kelley for EVERYTHING! ~ Maria J, Windham
    Kelley is friendly and professional. Her straightforwardness makes her trustworthy, something we appreciated during the searching/buying home process. I've heard plenty of horror stories of people buying their homes, but Kelley made it an easy breezy transaction. She was awesome, first time buying a home and I would not recommend anyone else. ~ Ruby D. Maine
    Our experience with Kelly Skillin-Smith was top-notch! She paid attention to all the details of our sale. Our house was under contract in 1 day and the Under Contract process was painless. We would definitely recommend Kelly to any of our friends and family! ~ Troy and Laura Kinney
    Kelley Skillin- Smith was amazing to work with. She is very knowledgeable with the housing market and helped us price our home perfectly. From day one she made everything so simple. Kelley came to our home and told us exactly what we needed to get the house ready for pictures and then ready for showing. We had a lot of clutter and moving around to do (due to our small children), and Kelley was very encouraging and sent us texts or called to check on our progress. Kelley hired a photographer who took beautiful pictures of the home. Once the house was officially on the market, we were under contract in about 14 days. Kelley stayed in touch through the whole process and we chatted just about every other day. She spelled out exactly what we needed to do and the whole experience was made easy and enjoyable. We are now looking for a new home and are highly confident Kelley will get us into our forever home. This whole experience did not feel like business; it felt like a friend helping us to sell our home. Kelley truly cares about her clients and what is best for them and that shines through. We look forward to working with Kelley and having a friendship that goes beyond the realtor/ seller/buyer relationship. Thank you Kelley. keep up the good work! ~ Maria & Joseph Jensen, Windham
    Kelley's experience, friendly personality and attention to detail made my first time buying experience less stressful, quick and most importantly exciting! ~ Katilyn Coburn - Westbrook, ME
    Kelly found our dream house in Naples ME, through her hard work and expertise we bought, sold and moved during October and November - a challenging time to sell a house! Kelly made it happen, we could not be happier. ~ Christopher and Melody Stickney
    Kelley is an outstanding realtor. She went above and beyond for us both and we could not be happier with the home we purchased. She made everything easy for us even when we were new homeowners and had almost no knowledge of the home buying world. She made excellent recommendations for us for various companies that would benefit us along the way as well. She way always available and easy to reach out to. We would recommend her to our family and friends and hope to work with her again if we decide to move in the future. ~ Ashley Duggan
