Helping People Buy and Sell Real Estate
in the Chicago Southwest Suburbs
Being in the real estate industry for over 27 years, I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of happy clients (see below), helping them buy and sell various types of real estate.
When you decide that you’re ready to make a move – buy and/or sell, it makes sense to hire an experienced real estate broker who really cares about you, and will provide unsurpassed service.
Sell a Home in the Oak Lawn Area
When listing your property for sale, I will create a strategic marketing plan that includes advertising your home on various online and print platforms. I also negotiate the purchase contract on your behalf, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I will take care of everything you need, from start to close. Contact me for a free market analysis.
Sometimes its hard for prospective buyers to visualize living in someone else's home. I will consult you on how to make your home more appealing to these buyers - which will help it sell at the highest possible price. Staging the home, making minor repairs or improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Jody Kelly made me feel like she was family and that she cared about what I needed and wanted in a house. Jody Kelly was a phone call or a text away day and night. She met me in the rain, snow and even when her car didn't want to start. She kept on searching until I was happy. She was hard working and dedicated. I don't know about Coldwell Banker, but I do know that their agent Jody Kelly is top notch and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for her time and patience because I'm picky."

"Dearest Jody, I just wanted to let you know how I've appreciated all that you have done for Bodi and me-we couldn't have done it with out you. Your service was geniune, sincere, warm and made me feel "safe" knowing you were right there when I needed you the most...(yes) Iam talking about those nervous panic attacks...Your one in a million! Love, Jennifer & Bodi"
-Jennifer & Bodi, Client
"We are investors who rehab and flip or rent houses. We've worked with over a dozen real estate brokers and, by far, Jody is the best. We recently asked Jody to list 11 of our other properties which shows how much we trust her abilities. She's attentive, she returns calls quickly, she acts quickly, and she's creative with her buying and selling advice. I think Jody is the new standard in the industry. Others should learn from her how to do it. I kind-of hate to write this review because we don't want to share her. :-) Excellent job, Jody. Nick P"
"Jody is very professional about the real estate industry. She was always available to answer questions and provide information to help with each step of the selling process. her friendly attitude made it a pleasure to work with her."
"Jody, you made everything "so" easy and smooth. From day one, you made it your goal to help mes find what I was looking for, constantly e-mailing properties that you felt matched what I wanted (and they did!), always going out of your way to make sure I had all the information, setting up appointments on short notice and just providing the friendly service that is often hard to find these days. You were extremely patient, always smiling and willing to help in any way possible. No matter what the obstacle was you found a way around it!! You were not pushy to get the sale and always looked out for our best interest. Anytime I or anyone I talk to is in need of buying or selling a house, I'm "DEFINITELY" referring them to you.” Thank you for being available. "
-Toni Smith, Client
"Jody Kelly was recommended to me by close personal friends that said she was wonderful. Well they were right . Jody is very good at what she does and what she does is so much more than just your average realtor. Jody has been with me every step of the way in buying my first new home. She has consulted with my lawyer, my lender, the sellers, the listing agent and my home inspector. If I have a question or concern I know Jody will have an answer or get me an answer. It is a great comfort knowing that she is on my team. Jody brings a lot of experience as well as dedication and a true caring for her clients. I would highly recommend Jody Kelly as your realtor. Sincerely: John H."
