By Brian Kelly | September 26, 2013

Real estate sales done daily wins. Winners in real estate awards used to get plaques. The certificates behind plexiglass would read how many in millions were sold. I remember certain sales people would stack their awards beside the desk because they did not have enough wall space. The consistent top producers did their activities daily.…

Realtors Fake It Till You Make It Because Buyers Are Liars and Sellers Are Too

By Brian Kelly | September 24, 2013

Realtors fake it till you make it because buyers are liars and sellers are too. Why do real estate agents embrace these quotes? Why are they perpetuated years in the industry? At the foundation of the words is blame shifting. Something happened because I am not willing to take personal responsibility for the outcome. My…

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.

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.
