Maria went above and beyond to find us the right home for our family in just 2 weeks in McLean. In this market, you need an enterprising realtor who is a go getter and knows the local market like Maria. She is also making every effort to make our transition to Virginia as smooth as possible. – Rishi and Shibha Arora
I can't thank Maria enough for helping us find our dream home in Vienna! She was so knowledgeable about different neighborhoods, home values and had great recommendations. My husband and I are first time home buyers and she walked us through every step and explained things clearly. We got the first house we put an offer on (which is unheard of in this market!) and I have no doubt that the way Maria conducted business with the sellers agent was a big reason why! She reached out early, built a rapport and even worked late into the evening to get the deal done. Thank you Maria! – Audrey and Ryan Thompson
Thank you so much for being so great with us! From start to finish we enjoyed working with Maria. Maria established a beautiful web presence with her phenomenal pictures of our home and her unique 3D imaging. This drove a tremendous amount of traffic through our home and enabled us to sell our home in 8 days with little contingencies! Maria and her team were always available to address any questions throughout the entire process. Thanks again Maria for being so helpful and friendly! – Leslie & Dave Aga
We used Maria Kelly for the recent purchase and sell of our homes. Maria was the utmost professional, a very clear communicator and a kind and compassionate person. She found our new home off market, saving us the hassle and headache of dealing with the difficulties of this competitive market. She helped us through every step of submitting an offer and eventual counter offer to secure our dream home. Maria knew every detail of the process and strategy to help win the bid. She was available for every question and concern and always got back to us in an extremely timely fashion. Maria helped us stage our current home and knew exactly what we needed to do to show a new family how wonderful our house was. She had beautiful pictures taken and devised a marketing plan that had her answering calls weeks in advance of our home coming onto market. She went above and beyond and sold our home in two days after a bidding war and eventual $100,000 over the asking price. We cannot say enough about this incredible agent. – Michelle & Nik Scalise
As first time home buyers, we were lucky to have Maria’s expertise. She was very attentive to our needs and made herself available at all hours of the day. While under contract, Maria was on top of things and nothing slipped through the cracks. She was such an asset to have and a pleasure to work with. We would work with her again in a heartbeat. Thank you Maria! – Chelsea & Dylan Tyner
Maria went above and beyond to help us find the right home, for which we had some really specific needs. She continues to check in and offer assistance with our transition to VA and finding the resources we need. – Karen and Marty Hall
Maria was a great agent. She was always available to talk/text/email/visit and willing to go above and beyond for us. She kept in close contact with the seller’s agent so if anything came up it was taken care of very quickly. And she was really great at keeping us updated throughout the whole purchase process. I would, without hesitation, recommend Maria and Kennedy & Co for all your real estate needs. – Anita and Bensonn Aspach
Maria was amazing! She guided us through the whole process, as first time home buyers, and moved very quickly to put in offers for us. That is KEY in this competitive market. And because she did, we ended up with the keys to a lovely home for our family. Thank you, Maria! – Angela and Bryan Christian
We are recent homeowners and used Maria Kelly as our agent. Once she heard we were interested in buying, she reached out to ask a bunch of questions of what we were interested in. Being first time home buyers, we were not exactly sure about everything, but Maria was able to find us a perfect variety of different size houses at all different price levels. It was our first weekend of house hunting and also our last. She showed us a house on Saturday we fell in love with, put an offer in on Sunday afternoon and it was accepted Sunday night. Who would have thought the home searching process would be so easy! Thanks to Maria, it was! I highly recommend Kennedy & Co and Maria Kelly. She was responsive and professional and took great care of us. I have no doubt that she and the company will continue to be a huge success. – Aislinn and Kevin McCart
We loved working with our agent Maria Kelly! She found us the perfect house to raise our daughters in NOVA. We searched and searched until we found a house that matched all of our criteria and we could not be more happy! Good luck on your search for a new home and I highly recommend working with Maria - she is the best! – Jen Wormser
Maria Kelly, you are a phenomenal agent! THANK YOU!! Her dedication to finding us the right house was more than we ever expected. She made herself available day or night to patiently answer our many questions and provide direction throughout the process. She was always professional in her manner and focused in her efforts on our behalf. Even more importantly, Maria made us feel valued as clients and as friends. She was our rock-solid support and guide from the first home showing to the final day of closing. Thank you Maria Kelly and Kennedy & Co! We will be glad, at any time, to refer Maria and/or Kennedy &Co Real Estate Team to anyone seeking a home. Thank you all for the great customer service!!! – Diah and Greg Eaton
