I love being a REALTOR® in East Texas! Relationships are genuine, the area is beautiful, and the market is rockin’! I chose to become a REALTOR because I wanted a fast paced, competitive career, that allowed me to customize my schedule for my family, friends and clients. I can honestly say that everyday is different in real estate, and I enjoy creating relationships. I am an involved REALTOR® to better the community.
I love fine jewelry. I love how I can have a simple outfit, and add a piece of quality jewelry, and I feel like a millionaire. I would much rather have less jewelry, and it is beautiful quality than a ton of lesser quality pieces.
I will never forget the first time that I went to... (Continue Reading)
Life is busy. Especially as we approach the hustle and bustle of the holidays, life is about to become even busier. Because life is so busy, sometimes it takes 5-7 business days to fold and put away laundry. When you have a moment to clean your house, here are some items that people forget to... (Continue Reading)
Television makes real estate look glamorous and seamless. People go to a coffee shop and talk. They look at three homes. A real estate agent makes a few phone calls. The seller accepts the offer, maybe after a little negotiating. Buyers are in the home, they knock down a few walls and POOF! Within minutes... (Continue Reading)
1. Get Rid of Fallen Leaves on Lawn
After you take a moment to enjoy the beauty of the autumn leaves, and of course play in them, say goodbye to the leaves. Grass needs sunlight, and leaves also trap moisture. Remove the leaves as often as you can.
2. Continue to... (Continue Reading)
Halloween is a great opportunity to come together as friends and family, share some candy, and share some laughter. I love Halloween! I remember when I was a little girl growing up in Monroeville, PA that I got so excited about trick or treating! Picking out my costume was a big deal. I remember one... (Continue Reading)
You have finally decided that you are ready to plant your roots, and purchase a home! Congratulations on making that decision. What do you want to spend monthly on your mortgage? How are you going to pay for your home? A lot of people just don’t have $200,000 in a bank account ready to spend... (Continue Reading)
Lenders will be able to tell you if you are pre-qualified, what your monthly payment estimate would be, how much closing costs will cost, what sales price home to stick around, etc. By having this conversation before scheduling a home... (Continue Reading)
When I first show clients property, we always talk about non-negotiables. Whether a client wants to live in a community with a Home Owner Association (HOA) can be a non-negotiable. Some people are adamant that they do not want to live in an HOA. Some people are only concerned about the cost of the fees.... (Continue Reading)
In 1997, my family and I moved from Monroeville, PA to Plano, TX. I vaguely remember my parents sitting all of us down at the kitchen table, and telling us we were going to move. I remember being shocked because the majority of the family I knew lived within driving distance from us.... (Continue Reading)
From the moment we first spoke to Kelly on the phone to the closing (and even after) of the sell of our home, she was amazing! She took the time to really get to know our needs, wants, and even emotions with selling the first home we had ever purchased. She knew that while we wanted to sell our home and to eventually purchase another one (which we WILL absolutely use her to help us do), we still loved that home and it was bittersweet for us. Since this was our first time to sell a home, she was unbelievably patient, understanding, and thoughtful. She answered all of our many, many questions with kindness and respect. I completely believe God placed her in our path to help us sell our home. She will not disappoint you whether you are buying or selling. We look forward to having her help us buy our next (and forever) home to finish raising our family in! Thank you, Kelly, for being kind, funny, understanding, a total Godsend, and for just being YOU!
Kelly is a great agent with a personality that makes you feel at ease during the stress of a real estate transaction. I would recommend Kelly to any first time home buyer, like myself. She ensures to clearly explain the process and puts her clients needs first. She made our first home dream a reality!
Very patient and understanding of my needs for house and worked hard to meet all criteria.
We worked with Kelly to sell our house and she did a phenomenal job. Kelly's communication and desire to understand our needs and wants while still providing valuable input and advice made the process absolutely seamless and enjoyable. Kelly's attention to detail is unmatched. I would highly recommend using Kelly for your real estate needs!
She's great. Always on point.
Kelly is an excellent agent. She is very fast to do anything that will help her client. She is patient and willing to look at houses ally the pace of her client. Very detail oriented.
I was recommended Kelly Raulston by numerous people when we made the decision to buy a house and I am so thankful we chose her! She is so knowledgeable and thorough with everything and pays great attention to detail. She made the whole process so easy. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house especially first time home buyers. She is amazing!
We Love Kelly!!! She was energetic and helpful and always very enthusiastic in marketing our home. She helped us purchase the home originally, and when we were done with the remodel, we made sure she helped us sell it too! We had an unusual house for the market we were in, but Kelly helped us figure out how best to price it, how to list it, and how to show it to advantage. She communicated directly and thoroughly, keeping all the various parts of the transaction working together for our benefit. Plus, we left Texas not long after listing the house, and she went above and beyond to make sure the house was accessible and attractive to potential buyers at all times. We wanted to take her with us! Whether you are a buyer or a seller in the Tyler area real estate market, you couldn't do better than Kelly Raulston!!!
Originally was referred to Kelly by a friend when we bought our first house, and then a year later my husband got a job offer and we were looking to move again. Without hesitation we called Kelly to discuss our options. She was there every step of the way and was very supportive. She knew the market and that there was a window to sell, but I never felt rush and always felt valuable as a person before all else. Kelly as profession as they come, works hard, always carries a smile as if it were easy. If you want someone who is going to shoot it straight and get the job done, Kelly is your woman!
Kelly Raulston is truly exceptional! From the time we contacted her to even after our closing she has been nothing but kind, courteous, full of knowledge, extremely helpful, and just plain amazing! I am so lucky we found her and will definitely use her again in the future and recommend our friends to her!
Very friendly, professional and diligant. She works overtime to make sure you find what you want and that everything is taken care of. She was recommended by a friend who used her services before and I'm glad I did! Found the perfect spot for me to settle into
Great experience working with Kelly she was reachable always, knowledgeable, and Patient! She didn't try to sell on anything we didn't want to settle for property wisely. I would highly recommend her!
