If you're looking for a realtor in Atlanta I strongly recommend Kirsten Conover with Prudential. Due to relocation we needed to sell our house fast. After Kirsten's tweaks and marketing we had a full price offer in 5 days! I had talked to 7 realtors prior to finding her, some at length... all were nice and I'm sure great, but none had her energy or passion, they just wanted the listing - either over valuing for wow factor, or provided skewed data to under price so they could get a quick sale. Kirsten gave us a plan of what we need to do to sell and not leave a dollar behind at closing. Quite simply - she blew the competition away. I hired her the same day. She immediately got to work, helping us with light fixtures, accessories, paint colors and hardware; and afterwards brought in a great stager and photographer. She has impeccable interior design skills, knows the market, what type of people are house hunting in the neighborhood and what they want and expect. Through the entire process she was always 100% available - either via phone, text or email. Following our offer she successfully and painlessly navigated us through Inspection and Appraisal to the closing table. I know we wouldn't have got the same results without her and dread to think how it could have gone.

We took a whole year to find a home and Kirsten stuck with us. Her priority was to find the best investment for us, so she would discourage us from buying a home that would have given her a great commission but wasn't a great resale option for us. She's honest. She knew inside the perimeter very well. And she was quick, available at nearly all hours. When we wanted to put a bid in, she was pushing us to keep the process moving forward.

Kirsten Conover is an amazing agent! My husband and I were beyond pleased with her tenatious style and professionalism. While assisting us with purchasing our home in Decatur, Kirsten was patient and tireless in helping us find the right house and ferret out all of the important details prior to the purchase. She is extremely knowlegdgeable, does her homework, and has many great connections in financing and home repairs--those connections were invaluable to us as we were relocating from out of state. She was tactful but fearless in her negotiations on our behalf. We really felt that she was in our corner and looking out for our best interests during--and after the sell. She is simply the best, and we recommend her to everyone who mentions buy or selling a house.

We have been very fortunate to have Kirsten as our realtor. She is very knowledgeable about Atlanta's different neighborhoods and works hard to make sure she finds the right home for you. Throughout or housing search, which lasted several months, she made us feel as though we were her only clients. She went out of her way to make sure that we have all of the information and resources we needed. Her recommendations for brokers, inspections companies, contractors etc were incredibly helpful. Even after the purchase of our home, Kirsten has stayed in touch and has continued to provide us with resources. We know that we can call her anytime if we have any questions about our new home/neighborhood etc. Kirsten is an exceptional realtor and we'd recommend her to anyone looking at buying or selling a home.

If you're looking to sell your home quickly, then you'll want to contact Kirsten. She understands that it takes aggressive marketing and applies a vast array of marketing tools to get your home the exposure it needs. I've recommended her to many homeowners and will continue to do so.

Our relationship with Kirsten started with a very short notice phone call. This set the tone for her work ethic moving forward. We had a 5 day home buying trip with the relocation that she dedicated 100% to our needs. She spent from 11:00am - 10:00 pm with us every day of that trip. Throughout the total 6 month period we worked with her, she showed us over 130 homes, no exaggeration. She could take a wish-list of homes that we would email her the night prior (typically 10) and have appointments scheduled next morning. We had to travel with a 3-year old for many of our property viewings. She was very understanding of our needs and respected the difficulties of bringing a child along for the viewings. This was very helpful to work with this type of flexibility. During the entire process, we never felt any pressure and she worked tirelessly to learn our priorities and needs for our new home. When it came down to negotiating she typically knew the other realtor and was able to facilitate the negotiation in a very positive manner. She continues to work for you through close of the sale, and making sure every detail of the purchase goes to plan. We were very pleased with her service and we felt as if we made a new friend in the area during the process. Thank you Kirsten for your tireless efforts to make sure we found a home for our family!

Kirsten is like a "super" realtor. She went above and beyond every single day to make sure we were armed with all of the information & resources we needed to buy our first home. Even after we closed.. We LOVE her!!!! We have already recommended her to several friends and can't wait to have her over for dinner.

We interviewed two other agents before we met Kirsten, and she was the only one who was brutally honest from the get go. Her experience in staging as well as her real estate expertise was the perfect combination. We know our house sold as a direct result of her staging advice combined with a realistic asking price. Much to our surprise, our house sold in May 2009 within 7 weeks, in the midst of the worst economic conditions in decades, and in a subdivision where all our neighbors' houses have sat for months (and even years!). I would without reservation recommend Kirsten to anyone who is looking to get results!

As a first time home buyer picking the right agent for you can be a daunting task. I worked with 1 agent that had lots of clients and a great resume, however it wasn't long before I realized she was not offering the best advice... I dumped her and got Kirsten. The difference was night and day. Kirsten understood my particular concerns and made them a priority to addressed and/or resolved. After collaborating and making a list of properties to view, we found my house on the first day we looked! I bought a foreclosed property and of course hit a few bumps along the way but with Kirsten I was able to get a great house well below fair market value with some great equity. She was always easy to contact and was constantly on top of other people to make sure they fulfilled their commitment to me. She even recommended a great home inspection company that sent an inspector who had once lived around the street and was able to give me information about the neighborhood and house I couldn't have gotten anywhere else. She also has an extensive knowledge about properties inside the perimeter (but not limited to that) which was a must-have for me. I would not hesitate to use Kirsten again and would strongly recommend her to others.

I honestly felt like I was her only client. She answered when I called and yet never allowed interruptions when we were looking at other houses. The whole process was very smooth and the people she recommended were just as wonderful and helpful.

I was buying on my own the first time. Kirsten was always available and helped me find a house I could actually afford and didn't try to get me into a more expensive house. Even though I wasn't going to be her most profitable client I felt like I got just as much attention as anyone. The foreclosed house process is long and drawn out but she stood by me and made it happen. Thank you! I would never hesitate to recommend Kirsten.

Kirsten is an expert in the Atlanta housing market. She found me my beautiful house-negotiated a phenomenal price-and her contacts are first-rate as well. She was available at all times to answer all of my questions. As a first-time homebuyer she made the process extremely smooth and worry-free.

Working with Kirsten is like working with a most trusted friend or family member. If you are serious about selling (or buying), Kirsten is the right agent for you. You must prepare yourself though because Kirsten serves up heaping helpings of reality when advising clients about how to prepare a home for sale. She researches each market carefully and she knows exactly what perspective buyers want. 1) Listen to what she says 2) Do everything you can to act on her suggestions 3) Watch her go! My husband and I were nervous at first about the updates she asked us to make. Once we did what she said, we were astounded with her ability to not only get qualified showings, but to follow up with every prospect and then to complete the sale (Did I forgot to mention -- she got us our asking price) We could not give her a higher recommendation.
