Initially, we chose Kelly Aluise to sell our Westwood home because she walks the neighborhood, knocks on doors, gets to know the residents firsthand, and is exceptionally knowledgeable. But we had no idea how far she would go to ensure a positive experience for us.
From the start, Kelly worked closely with us on what turned out to be a very challenging sale. She helped to stage our home and brought flowers for the open houses. She helped us negotiate the sale price and got us two offers in the first week. Throughout escrow, she was on the phone with us every day, explaining every detail, making the complex understandable. When the buyer requested an extension to the escrow period that threatened to derail our plans for the house we were buying in another town, Kelly worked with all the parties involved to make sure everything stayed on track. But she went even farther than that.
The day we moved, our cat escaped, and we had no choice but to leave him behind. Kelly traveled many miles to purchase a "kind" cat trap, left food out for him every day for a week, finally caught him, and personally drove 110 miles to bring him back to us -- on Thanksgiving Day! She was everything we could have wanted in an agent, and much more. If you're buying or selling a home, you absolutely cannot go wrong with Kelly.

My wife and I can be described as a freight-train couple. When we decide to do something, we do it, and it gets done very quickly no matter what. So we decided to buy a house. We talked with our friend Carolin who is starting out in real estate to help us look for some houses. My wife and I saw... just way too many houses. We were getting notifications every hour of houses popping up in our area. It was the third house we saw that we JUST closed on. Carolin introduced us to Kelly who is her mentor and from there we were flying. Kelly handled all the craziness for us; the back and forth, back and forth, this amendment, that disclosure, every time we needed to go to the house or have an inspection Kelly was there. Anyways... Kelly is amazing. As first time homeowners she held our hand the whole way, gave us sound advice, was available for chats, and just generally made a very intense and fast process as painless as possible (closed escrow and had keys in less than 2 weeks). Not everyone is going to have such a crazy fast process, but even if you do she can handle it. Her demeanor is always pleasant and fun. She is the genuine deal... If you want someone who knows the ropes, treats you fair, gives very sound advice, and has an attitude that makes you want to be her best friend forever; she’s the one. SHE’S THE BEST. And for the practical people... she’s an amazing negotiator. We came down over $20k from the asking price. Call her. You won’t regret it one second.
I had a great experience selling our duplex through Kelly.
She is caring, meticulous and very articulate. She is very knowledgeable and has a very warm and friendly way of interacting with her clients and prospective buyers. She walks the neighborhood and knows her area very well.
She kept us posted on the progress of the sale and was ready to meet anytime needed.
We were in escrow a few days after the first public open house.
I highly recommend her.
Thank you Kelly!!!

Kelly was more than a realtor to my wife and I…she was a true friend. She is beyond professional in every way. She is extremely knowledgeable, savvy and great with people. If there was ever an issue Kelly was always on top of it, and always managed to make us feel comfortable and informed. She was there every step of the way, whether to walk us through the mounds of paperwork or to just call and check in to see if we were doing ok. She went above and beyond in getting us into the house we wanted, and is in a league of her own. Buying a house is a tough enough process, but when you have Kelly, dare I say it makes it enjoyable! We have met a lot of realtors in the process, but none came close to the caliber of Kelly Aluise. I honestly couldn’t imagine going through the process without her as our Realtor. When we buy our next home, Kelly will be there…trust me! She ROCKS!! Sincerely, Christina & Kevin Lublin, Happy Homeowners

My wife and I recently sold our home in Comstock Hills, and were fortunate enough to hire Kelly Aluise as our listing agent. From our very first meeting, we felt comfortable with her approach and confident she could help us get what we wanted for our house. Kelly was always available when we had questions and always went the extra mile to make sure the process of selling our home was as pleasant and easy as possible. In the end, we sold within weeks at a price we were very happy with. We would confidently recommend her to a friend for any real estate needs.
I just wanted to thank you for everything. I couldn’t have picked a better real estate agent. As a single mom, I was terrified to list and sell my home and to find a new one. But you held my hand every step of the way, making the terrifying and difficult process not so scary. Your knowledge, advice, and support never wavered, and your positive attitude always made me feel like everything was going to be okay.
I am so happy in my new home in Calabasas (and thank you for showing me the 75 other homes that I didn’t buy!).
I will recommend you to anybody and everybody I know who is looking for an agent. My kids and I are eternally grateful for the experience, and ultimately, that we made a new friend.
