The current world of technology makes it difficult for some people to understand why a real estate agent is essential for selling a home. If you’re not a real estate agent, chances are you do not know what you need to sell your home. Selling your home is not as simple as posting pictures on a few websites. Real estate agents are important for the home selling process for a variety of reasons.

1. Experience and Education

If you’re not a real estate agent, you will need to educate yourself about the process of selling your home, which including filling out the correct paperwork for selling your home and other important documents. It could take a while to learn all the ins and outs of selling a home. You can save time and money by hiring a real estate agent. These agents have the required experience and education to sell your home, and you don’t have to worry about learning the tricks of the trade.

2. Negotiation Skills

Being a real estate agent requires skills, especially ones for negotiating. Real estate agents are professionals who represent their clients in the best manner possible and keeps all client information private and confidential.

Having purchased and now having listed a home with K2 Realty I can speak to their proficiency in all aspects of the real estate experience. After expressing to Kellie Osbon our interest in downsizing to a home within walking distance to restaurants and shops, she took us to see several homes in both Covington and Mandeville; and was very influential in our final decision to purchase our current new home that we love. She set up our inspection and was present when we were unable to be there. She was relentless in identifying and negotiating a necessary repair for us that would have cost us hundreds of dollars. She was present with us at our closing, which could not have been better; even bringing us a basket of goodies to celebrate our new home! When it was time for us to sell our home, there was no doubt that we would list with K2. Kellie has been instrumental in guiding us through the process, even walking the home with us several times to guide us in areas of improvement to make our home marketable and competitive. She has plentiful contacts in our area in all areas of home repair and restoration that have been extremely helpful as we prepared our home for listing. Our home will list this week and I have no doubt that with K2 Realty our home will sell quickly due to their research in establishing the best price for our listing. You cannot go wrong with this team!

To Whom it may concern,

I would like to take this opportunity to praise Kellie Osbon with K2 Realty. Kellie is an AWESOME agent!! Kellie is a true professional and takes care of business thoroughly, quickly, and efficiently. She responds to all communications, whether it be by email, text or calls, extremely fast- even to this day!! Kellie is very knowledgeable of the market for our area and it made all the difference. She is honest, upfront, and has great integrity. Due to our excellent service, we referred her to my parents and their experience mirrored ours. We consider Kellie to be a dear friend. Kellie Osbon is definitely a 5 star agent!!!



I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you guys for not only being true professionals, but for allowing me to do my job without calling/ emailing every 15 minutes asking for updates. It makes for a much smoother process and allows for all parties to be more efficient with their respective tasks.

I would and will surely recommend you guys to any clients that i pre approve and are looking to interview agents as i like the way you shift your level of aggressiveness to match the client. I’ve seen you both be a pit bull and fight for your client and at other times be a passive as the client wants and NOT push them into making a hasty decision. It’s rare today to find a realtor that truly has the clients best interest in the forefront rather than rushing to a closing and collecting a commission. Both of you have continued to display a positive attitude and take any and all adversity in stride, understanding that stuff happens and offer to help in any way possible to resolve and ultimately get the buyer/ borrower into their home. Anyone can complain and ask questions as to why something is being requested, however, you ladies remain professional and realize that it is the nature of the beast in today’s lending climate and provide the necessary support to address as well as furnish explanations to the buyer so they remain informed.

I look forward to working with you all on a more consistent basis and feel free to call me with any scenarios that you or your clients may have so that i can provide some lending options for them. Thanks again and i wish you guys all the best for continued growth and success.

Kellie Osbon and Kimberly Everett, the brokers and co-owners of K2 Realty, are two of the most professional and pleasant people i have the pleasure of working with. My contact with them is primarily in connection with real estate closings. I can relate first hand that the clients they represent love them, not simply for the level of service they provide, but because they are down to earth, always have a sense of humor and always carry a smile on their faces. Their years of experience combined with a cheerful approach, make the process of buying and selling real estate for their clients a satisfactory and happy experience. Kellie and Kimberly know the real estate business and love the real estate business. It shows in the results they achieve for their clients.
