    My Client Testimonials

    We have dealt with Kit Wilcox a lot over the past 3-4 years. First buying then selling our home. He has consistently gone the extra mile to make our experience positive. He has been patient, professional, and very helpful. From making recommendations to getting us in contact with local contractors, handymen, utility and professional people Kit has always been there. I'm sure it must be frustrating dealing with the demands of so many people but Kit never seemed "put out" or annoyed or inpatient. We could not be more satisfied than we are with Kit. He has our highest recommendation and eternal thanks. Don and Suzanne Beitzel ~ Don and Suzanne Beitzel

    Kit Wilcox was recommended by a friend who is active in the community and so knew a lot of local realtors. We live out of state, but we still have family and friends living in Galesburg. At the mention of Kit's name the responses was always the same- that he is a top realtor and nice guy with an excellent professional reputation. These are the qualities we were looking for in our realtor. Through the entire process of selling our brother's home, I felt that Kit Wilcox always placed our best interests first. ~ Susan Mills, Norton Shores, Michigan
    Kit was highly recommended from several friends. Truly appreciated Kit's local expertise and professionalism. The house sold quickly and all the details were handled well. We especially liked the frequent communication and ease of the sale. Kit is the best realtor we have dealt with in the sale of property. Our past experiences with other realtors have not been so positive. Great communication and prompt to return calls.... ~ Martha Christensen St. Pete Beach , FL
    Kit Wilcox and his associates were outstanding help in the sale of my mother's house. They went beyond my expectations. I was not in the local area and my mother was in a nursing home so the assistance I received could not have been better. They knew how to price the home, get it ready for open houses, took feedback from those open houses always keeping me aware of everything without me having to deal with any problems. He also knew people to call for maintenance issues like a broken sump pump and a tree that needed cutting down from a storm. Again, I would highly recommend this realtor and associates - very professional and helpful through the entire process of selling a house! ~ Camille Hufnagel, Metamora, IL (selling house in Knox Co.)
    It was a pleasure working with Kit Wilcox to handle the sale of an estate sale house in Galesburg. I was working from out of town so had to rely on Kit to determine what fixing up the house would need and would be worthwhile to maximize the sales proceeds net of fix up costs. Kit did a great job of identifying our market niche and price range target and locating and overseeing local contractors for us to do work needed for the house to show well. I found it helpful that he kept me apprised of scheduled showings by brokers and of the comments of prospective buyers that did not make offers. The pace of showings and comments of prospective buyers and their brokers confirmed that we had the house priced and presented right. When we got an offer he was very professional and knowledgeable in advising me on the counter offer and presented our position well so we got under contract at a price and terms we were happy with. Kit and his staff handled the escrow and closing very smoothly and efficiently, tracking down and obtaining all documentation needed for a successful closing. All in all, one of the smoothest real estate purchase or sale transactions I have experienced. ~ Robert Tomlin, Soquel, California
    Kit Wilcox did an excellent job of marketing our property. He had several open houses and spent a lot of time selling this property. Kit is very knowledgeable and professional in the real estate business. ~ Jim LaDuke
    Before we purchased we went through many open houses over the course of about 2 years. Kit was by far the most personable, patient and had the most knowledge. We could not be any happier with Kit. ~ Ken and Debby Ashby, Galesburg
