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.
