Kelly is one of the best Realtors in Charlotte. He grew up in Charlotte and has been a Realtor for over 20 years which means he knows the market better than most. He uses his knowledge to help him position his clients for success whether buying or selling. Once this has been done and the deal is about to ensue, the real magic begins. Kelly is "hands down" the best negotiator in the business. He looks at the whole deal and is a master at getting the best price. He also manages every detail from inspections to escrows to closing costs and closing dates. He does not miss anything. You can be assured that when you use Kelly you will get the best of everything. He is meticulous and this is exactly what you want from a Realtor.Amy A
We had the unique experience of using Kelly Stimart multiple times both as a seller and as a buyer. His experience in the greater Charlotte market truly sets him apart from his peers. His attention to detail, his eye for ensuring his customers come first and his keep ability to negotiate are all traits we truly appreciated throughout our buying and selling experience. Anyone looking for their next home should leverage the skills and talent of Kelly.Steve & Haley N
While there are many good people at Allen Tate and in the Charlotte real estate business, Kelly Stimart is the only choice for residential home buying in Charlotte. In 2007, our family relocated to Charlotte and we asked a friend, a Charlotte native, for three residential real estate agents we could interview to help with our home search. After meeting Kelly for the first interview, the choice was made and we never considered the second or third choices. Kelly's local knowledge of the Charlotte residential market, temperament, experience and attention to detail are just remarkable. Since first meeting Kelly in 2007 as the market entered the Great Recession, Kelly has listed and sold our original purchase and co-brokered our current residence. Kelly is a wonderful real estate professional and anyone considering a move should strongly consider working with Kelly. We are happy to share our experience about buying and selling and buying again with Kelly. Kelly is "hands down" the best residential real estate agent I have ever worked with.Cherok F

Kelly worked as a dual agent when we sold our home. We felt he was very fair when representing us. Kelly's complete knowledge of real estate law made any information we needed readily available. He returned telephone calls quickly and made sure that all appointments we made with him were completely at our convenience. He saw that our every need was met and always maintained a warm and friendly attitude. We were 100% satisfied working with Kelly. We highly recommend him and will use him again ourselves.Keris B
Having practiced real estate law in Mecklenburg County for many years and handled both residential and commercial closings, I have come to know what it takes to be thoroughly knowledgeable and competent real estate agent. Kelly impressed me with his working knowledge of the numerous areas of real estate law as he handled all aspects from our sale to our closing. He was very kind to my wife and myself and I feel most fortunate that he crossed my path. I would recommend Kelly without hesitation.W. Herbert (Herb) B
Kelly has worked with me on six separate real estate transactions over the past 16 years. He has been very knowledgeable about the Charlotte market and understands what it takes to prepare and put a home up for sale. He also knows with his experience, if I am purchasing a house, what are the focal points to concentrate on within the home, strategize on the current housing market, and work with other Realtors to make a deal that everyone feels good about. Kelly has been a professional and I would recommend him to any friend or family.Jeff M
Over the past 10 years, we have had the opportunity to use Kelly's services in three buy side transactions and four list side transactions. With each transaction, Kelly provided clear, accurate and objective advice on all aspects of the transaction. His estimate on fair market value was spot on and he worked tirelessly to minimize our time in the due diligence process. We have no reservations recommending Kelly as a Realtor of choice to our friends and family.Mark & Paula A
