Some straight talk about termite letters and pest inspection. Inspections are part of a home purchase. Chattanooga home inspections usually include a “Termite Letter” or WDR (Wood Destroying Insect Report) for the benefit of the purchaser and their lender.

St Elmo Is Gaining National Neighborhood Notoriety
St Elmo is gaining national neighborhood notoriety. “Naturally”, say the residents. St. Elmo has been gaining popularity for years. Locals enjoy the community, people and it’s proximity to downtown Chattanooga. Chattanooga granted the area a local historic district in 1992.

Realtors Beware Of Over Engineering Real Estate Business
Realtors beware of over engineering the real estate business. Real estate is all about people. People buy things from others with emotion and feelings of trust. Don’t get me wrong here. We need good process flow and checks and balances. What I am talking about is making the business too transactional and less relationship focused.…Read More
Serving Real Estate Customers Is A Noble Calling
Serving real estate customers is a noble calling. A calling to bring honest and trustworthy dealings to others. People with relationships built with trust. Trust that is earned over time with expectations met or exceeded. I had a difficult time believing that any business was noble. Growing up in the 70’s and 80’s the culture…Read More
Over 50 Percent Of Chattanooga Homes Sold By Top 10 Percent Of Realtors
Over 50 percent of Chattanooga homes sold by top 10 percent of Realtors. That is a very compelling fact that there are 145 hustling agents selling half of the sales.

What people say are saying about Brian Kelly eXpRealty
Brian is an invaluable resource for anyone in the Chattanooga area looking to purchase property. He is professional, kind, responds to texts and calls the same day--often within minutes--and is careful to give his clients the information they need to make their decision without being pushy. He has helped us purchase our own home as well as several investment properties. I wish realtors everywhere worked like he does.
Single Family Buyer
Brian was the best!! He is very knowledgeable, and understands what you are looking for. He will go the extra mile to help no matter the time of day!!! Would highly recommend calling him before anyone else.
Single Family Home Buyer
Brian was very helpful to us in finding a new home. We appreciated that he was attentive to lots of small details which helped the process go smoothly. We had specific zoning requirements that needed to be met and he carefully researched every property. Brian was very attentive to our needs and responsive when we called with questions. Brian wasn't pushy, in trying to get us to look at properties, but searched for properties in the specific areas we were interested in.
