Realtors Beware Of Over Engineering Real Estate Business

By Brian Kelly | October 7, 2013

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.…

What people say are saying about Brian Kelly REAL Broker

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.

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.

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.
