Customers

Kelli Excell did an "excellent" job of selling a Townhome for us. Throughout the whole process she consistently gave us good advice and made the journey as smooth as humanly possible. From the beginning her knowledge and effort proved invaluable in achieving the end goal of selling our property. She researched similar properties and arrived at a price that was both fair to us as the sellers and still attractive to potential buyers. Her ability to present our property on her website resulted in a quick turn around as our property sold in 5 days. We give Kelli and her agency high marks and would recommend them to anyone. After all Kelli was recommended to us from another one of her happy customers. View More Info at Reach150.com

Carolyn Fieldsted recommends Jenn Pratt

Years ago we worked with another real estate agent purchasing a property and it was a nightmare! We were reluctant to use a real estate agent again, but as we are out of state and needed to sell we proceed cautiously with listing our property with Jen and NextHome Journey. Let me just say it was night and day difference! Jen was super responsive, gave great advice and had the market knowledge to know we shouldn’t take a lower offer. She Answered all of our questions and if she didnt have the answer she would find out and call us back . I would recommend Jenn to anyone. View More Info at Reach150.com

Kelli is an amazing Realtor and Broker! I first met Kelli while searching for a home myself to purchase. Kelli always went out of her way for us. She was great at pointing out the positive and negative features of each home as well. She is the perfect example of what a Realtor should be.

Kelli is also no different when it comes to being a Broker. I enjoyed Kelli's work ethic and friendship so much that I decided to work with her! Kelli puts others first. She will be sure to answer any questions you have. The work environment she has created is like none other I've ever experienced. I look forward to coming to work every day! I enjoy all my co-workers whom I consider like family. With all of NextHome's tools and their friendly service center it is impossible not to succeed. Their cutting edge technology and design will be sure to not only catch your eyes but everyone else's too! I cannot image working anywhere else! View More Info at Reach150.com

Kelli assisted my wife and I through a very difficult home closing in which Michelle was in southern Utah and I was in Italy. We appreciated both Kelli's assistance and advice throughout the entire home selling process, from preparation for listing (we had an offer on the house within a couple of days of listing) through closing.

Michelle and I (Jim) wholeheartedly recommend Kelli and NextHome to anyone who wishes to sell their home.

IT Specialist

Someone told me buying a house would be the worse experience in my life. I've known Jenn for a very long time. I used to service her Verizon services when I used to work there. She once gave me a business card and told me "Here, when you are ready to buy a house, call me" At the time buying a house seemed so unreachable. I told her I would call her but I really didn't believe I would be capable of buying a house. After the baby came, it was time to look around. I messaged Jenn and right away she started helping. Having Jenn as my realtor really made buying a house a lot easier than what I thought. It didn't even take long for us to find the right house and for the seller of the house to accept the offer. Jenn did a great job showing us the houses and being patient with some picky home buyers. She was very professional, cheered us throughout the whole way. My wife was really impressed on how nice and personal she became. She really cared about our new home. When we felt like it was getting stressful she was there to tell us everything was alright. I would recommend (and have recommended already) Jenn to everyone that will be buying house that I know. She made buying a house not the worse experience in my life but one of the best decisions I have made! Thanks Jenn! View More Info at Reach150.com

Veterinarian

We have worked with Kelli for almost 6 years in attempts to sell our home in Story City. Kelli helped us locate numerous renters for the property over the years and finally found and secured a buyer for the home as well. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with her. She has always been kind, understanding, and caring, and took such great care of the home while we lived in another state. When any issues came up (and many did)--she was always immediately finding solutions and making sure things got resolved. We could not have asked for a better person to help us with this long journey with this home. We are very thankful for Kelli. She would be an amazing fit for anyone who has a home they would like to buy/sell/rent/ etc.

Thank you Kelli! View More Info at Reach150.com

Julie Hall recommends Kelli Excell

Kelli was a great realtor; she was quick at responding to texts, and got us in to places that our previous realtor couldn't have. Since she's been in the business a while, she knows all the other realtors in the area, so that usually can be used to your advantage in getting you the home you want. The whole process was calm and our negotiations worked out really well for us. We got our home for almost $10,000 less than the appraisal, so it was a super great situation for us.

First-time homebuyers

I wish I could give Kelli one million stars. She has been amazing to work with. She pointed out issues in the homes we looked at, so that we were aware of what work might need to be done. We had trouble with the our, and she fought for us the whole way. It was great to have someone so wholly on our side.

Even now, after the sale, I can still reach out to her and ask questions about home ownership. She is extremely personable and made the home-buying process fun and easy to understand. She helped us research properties before we went to them and made sure we knew what we were getting into. I can't say enough good things! View More Info at Reach150.com

Mother of young adult daughter buyer and Real Estate Agent in KS & MO

There is no need to consider another agent. Kelli is all you will need and will be by your side the entire process. I was looking for an agent in Ames, IA, area that was knowledgeable but was also nurturing as my daughter was purchasing her first home. Kelli was professional, returned calls/texts promptly, provided all the necessary documents so we could make a wise choice, was resourceful and punctual...AND she patiently answered questions and went above and beyond what an average agent would "normally" do to provide a smooth, safe and positive experience. Has even followed up after the closing to check on my daughter and will be someone we can call in the future if we ever need anything and we know she will be there for us. As an agent myself and a mother, I am very impressed with Kelli and would highly recommend her. View More Info at Reach150.com

We are first time homebuyers and we met Kelli while we randomly searched for a potential house for us. Kelli is incredibly professional and patiently walked us through the home buying process and patiently walked us through every house we wanted to look at. She was always fast to reply any answers on crazy amount of emails from us.:) Also, she was very honest to point out the weaknesses of the homes and to suggest the reasonable price of the homes. When negotiating with the seller, she did the best job to represent our opinion staying by our side. We were very happy about the whole home buying process because of her help and the house she helped us to close. We highly recommend Kelli Excell for any potential home buyers!

Derek Ludwig recommends Kelli Excell

Home finder

Where to start...I came across Mrs. Excell first around Dec/jan through reference by my relatives that had hired her to find the house that they live in now. I was in search of a house while my family was getting ready to follow later.

I picked up many noticeable characteristics with Kelli Excell. to start was her understanding and love for family structure. She always greeted us warmly and chatted playfully with my kids when they would break into our conversations.

her time management skills were on dot...with exception of traffic that can cause some time loss which was no biggie since my family and i were from sac Cali...traffic was horrible there.

She seemed organized with us. For example, whether with the homes that we've seen or have a desire to see in each area, kelli personalized our home searching in a booklet which i thought was cool. She has a great personality for customer service...down to earth if you will. I noticed this right away since ive been in the customer service industry for 7 years plus.

She also took extra measures to help us with temporary problems that came up. For example, my wife and i were in a situation where we just couldnt find the right home and needed to move out of my relatives home. With her help and some strings pulled, we were able to continue to searching while being assisted with personal matters. She knows how to take care of her customers needs if it is within reason and resources.

Communication is key to have between agent/ customer (friend) relationship.

When we found the right house kelli saw the excitement in our demeanor and helped point out the highlights of what we were looking for for our growing family.

One last thing ill mention and that is kelli worked with our schedule. This is my first time buying a house. I might be a bit ignorant on how realty job works but with my fluctuating work schedule kelli always found a time during the week to make the searching / observing possible.

I would recommend friends, family, and random strangers to her. Shes got a system that works. It worked for me, and from what history she has shared with me...seems like it molds to each customer effectively to where you will find a home in time that will fit your life style. No doubt.

Kelli, worked hard to find us a home. Even weird requests like wanting to see a house on a Sunday several miles away ...which happened.
