Don't waste time with anyone else-read this.  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. I'm happy to answer any questions.

This is our second, amazing experience with Kirsten. We bought a house with her and recently sold that house. We were selling in a hot market and also selling a very old home with amazing upgrades. We had a bidding war on the house and negotiated through 5 contracts before selling!!! She was like our realtor/therapist. :) She was amazing! We could not have been happier. One thing to appreciate about Kirsten is that she knows how to get you the price you want and goes more than the extra mile to help with staging and contractors.

I observed from a distance as Kirsten quickly sold a home in my neighborhood and noticed how hard working and hands-on she was.  When it was time for me to sell, I chose her as my agent because I was serious and didn’t want to waste time.  Wow!  Within 2 days of putting it on the market I not only had a full price offer but a backup offer as well!   I couldn’t be happier with the entire experience of working with Kirsten.  She’s direct and tells you like it is.  She knows her business and what will make a your house sell.  I made the decision to take her advice and let her do her job which resulted in a quick sale at asking price, just like she promised.  What more could I want?!  Kirsten has a great team which includes an excellent photographer and stager.  The pictures were beautiful and I was impressed with how much better the stager’s changes made my house show.  Working with each of them was a delightful experience…even fun!  If you want to get your house sold fast at the best possible price, I highly recommend you choose Kirsten and follow her advice.  You’ll be glad you did!

After having our house on the market for two years with very little activity, we decided to take it off the market. Soon after, I met Kirsten and asked her to come by the house and give us her professional opinion. When she walked in the front door, her first comment was that she was sorry--if the right steps had been taken the previous two year the house was on the market, it would have sold quickly. Kirsten immediately contacted a wonderful home stager for her expert opinion on what was needed. Later she had a professional photographer come over who took several hours to photograph the house while Kirsten was present.Kirsten then put the for sale sign up and posted all the amazing photos on line. Whenever I needed her opinion on something she would take the time to come by, and whenever I called with questions she was very responsive, she went above and beyond! Kirsten worked hard to make things happen and they DID! In the first week she brought us two offers and we had more traffic in that week then the previous two years combined. One of those two offers is now the owner. We were so thrilled with how smoothly she handled everything and negotiated the offers, that every chance I have had, and will have, I've given Kirsten's name out. I will continue to do so! Thanks Kirsten again for doing such an amazing job!

In late 2011 my husband and I needed to sell our rental property as quickly as possible. We were concerned about our success during such a rough economic period. A friend of ours recommended Kirsten because of her strong work ethic and aptitude for selling homes. When we first met Kirsten, we were struck by her forthrightness, confidence, and obvious experience in real estate. She recommended that we partially renovate the house and have it staged. This was not what we expected, but she explained in detail why this would be necessary in order to sell the house in a buyer's market, and she backed her suggestions up with her history of success. We decided to move forward: we renovated the house, staged it, and put it on the market. Kirsten stood by us and helped tremendously throughout the entire process, all the way through the closing. We were so relieved that the house sold in less than 3 months of being on the market! During the entire ordeal Kirsten kept in touch almost daily. She was always available for questions and support even late at night. We value her commitment, integrity, and now friendship. Thank you Kirsten for everything. Most of all for giving us hope during those times when we were ready to give up.

The service and personal attention we received from Kirsten was exceptional and unexpected from a Realtor! She was hard-working, incredibly detailed, patient and always provided expert advice. Buying your first house can be stressful but she really made it very easy and helped us get the best value! We absolutely love our house and couldn't have done it without her. Regardless of whether you are buying, renting or selling, we would highly recommend Kirsten to help you in this life changing move. We are super grateful and could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process.

El servicio y la atencion que recibimos de Kirsten fue excepcional! Definitivamente supero todas nuestras expectativas. Kirsten trabaja muy duro, es increiblemente detallada, muy paciente y siempre nos dio su consejo experto en el momento adecuado.

Adoramos nuestra nueva casa y nunca podriamos haberla conseguido sin su ayuda. Sea para comprar, alquilar o vender, trabajar con Kirsten es nuestra recomendacion… estamos super agradecidos y no nos imaginamos a nadie mejor que ella para acompañar este proceso.

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.

EXCEPTIONAL REALTOR: 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 had all of the information and resources we needed. Her recommendations for inspection 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!

Kirsten, Although somewhat late, I want to thank you for your help to Christy and to us during the last few months of search for an ideal home for her. You made the process a lot easier and joyful. Your personal attention and frank evaluations, as well as your promptness and professional behavior, brought this usually difficult task to a successful conclusion. THANK YOU again. We will certainly call you if and when we decide to move back to Atlanta. We are looking forward to working with you again. God bless you.

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!) without selling. I would without reservation recommend Kirsten to anyone who is looking to get results!

One of the Best! 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.

She made it so easy!! Even though I know she is a busy realtor, I honestly felt like I was her only client. She answered whenever I called and yet never allowed interruptions when we were looking at houses together. The whole process was very smooth and the people she recommended were just as wonderful and helpful.

Lindsay Minnich (Ashford Park)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fantastic realtor! I cannot recommend Kirsten Conover enough. She was an excellent realtor for us, and went well beyond the "extra mile" in order for us to get a great house. We'll be indebted to her forever.

Kirsten, just wanted to say thanks so much for all you did to make buying my place here in Atlanta a smooth process. You were VERY patient and had great insight into all the possible places to live in this big city! Also, thanks for the gift certificates to some of your favorite places to eat. I love my condo in Virginia Highlands -- I can't imagine being anywhre else. Come by anytime!

I recently bought my first house, thanks to Kirsten. Before I found Kirsten, I tried out several realtors who were definitely not what I was looking for. Then I tried Kirsten and knew it was a perfect match after the first day. The first realtors seemed like amateurs, while Kirsten is a consummate professional. She was able to point out possible water damage in one house and could answer all of my questions about houses, neighborhoods, and investment value. And instead of focusing on selling me a house at the top of my price range, she focused on finding houses in tune with my tastes. Although I was very familiar with the Atlanta housing market (I have lived in Atlanta for years and had been looking on-line for months), I found my house in East Atlanta thanks to Kirsten's suggestion. I had not considered East Atlanta previously and she thought the neighborhood was a good fit for my personality. Again, she was right. Kirsten is extremely educated about houses and the Atlanta housing market. Once I found a house, the people she put me in contact with for the inspection and mortgage were fantastic. During the process of buying my first house it felt as if I was Kirsten's only client because she was available at all times and at all hours to answer my questions. There wasn't a single question that she couldn't answer immediately or find the answer to and get back to me. And Kirsten is a bull-dog in negotiations. She was able to get the previous owner to build a privacy fence and lower the price of the house significantly below the appraised value. And even now she is still offering to help me with the house, though I closed more than a month ago. Kirsten is a realtor who takes pride in her job and does it wonderfully, not a person who will go through the motions to make a profit. Kirsten is such a fantastic realtor that if I could afford to buy another house right now I would use her. And I have told all of my friends that they would be crazy not to use her when they begin the process of purchasing their homes!

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 prospective 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.

We had just about given up hope on selling our home and were looking at rental options. Our house was unoccupied and on the market for almost two years, with numerous price reductions and continuous maintenance costs. We met Kirsten Conover in late December of 2007 through a referral from a close friend. My wife and I had been loyal to the same agent for two years, but felt like it was time to make a change. We were tired of paying two mortgages. Needless to say, we were very impressed with Kirsten's ideas of re-marketing our home, make a small investment to update fixtures, and preparation prior to our home being listed. We had multiple offers within the first two weeks of the listing, and had it under contract. Within 45 days of the listing, we sold and closed on the home. Kirsten provided us with invaluable advice and suggestions throughout the process, in addition to letting us know what we needed to do to sell the house in today's buyer driven market versus what we wanted to hear. Kirsten is by far, the most professional, dedicated, and knowledgeable agent we have ever worked with. The only regret we have is that we did not meet Kirsten two years earlier.

Kirsten - you made me realize what a great asset a good real estate agent is. After a terrible experience with a Duffy Realty agent who "attempted" to sell my home, you came, suggested upgrades as well as staged the home ... it sold in less than a month, in a down market, for 98% of the asking price! Though I sometimes wanted to throw darts at your picture through the upgrade process, you proved to me you knew exactly what you were doing. I could have chosen other agents but I choose you because you have a great attitude and confidence. I feel very comfortable around you and can trust what you're doing is always in my best interest. Though I ended up renting until I find the PERFECT place to call home, I will definitely be using you for my home purchase later this year. Thank you, thank you, thank you .... I truly appreciate everything you did for me! :-)

I was recently relocated by my company to California and had to sell my condominium quickly. As this is a particularly tough condo market right now, Kirsten's challenge was pretty big. Since purchasing the condo the values in my complex have depreciated and the days on market average 142 days. Kirsten worked extremely hard to sell my place--she was very responsive and communicative with me every step of the way and made the process much less stressful. My condo sold in 6 weeks and set a new high price for my complex. My only regret is that I moved to Sacramento and she can't help me find a house here!

Kirsten – Didn't get a chance to thank you at closing the other day for all the effort you put forth in selling our home! Evelyn and I both really appreciate you—you are the best!

Kirsten has restored my faith in real estate agents! After unhappy experiences with two other agents who attempted to sell my home, Kirsten was able to sell it for me at full asking price. She was tireless in her pursuit of Buyers, and even performed "kitty litter" duties when I was out of town one weekend. I could have used other "top" agents, but I choose Kirsten because she was all about getting to know me and what made my home unique in the market place. In talking with those other agents, I felt they were relying too much on their reputation and were more interested in adding my home to the pages of their "home list" then actively selling my home. If you want to sell your home Kirsten is a great choice ....exceptional with her creative ideas, relentless in her energy, great in communicating and accessablity...... outstanding personal service. I could not be happier and I think you will be too.

As a first-time homebuyer, the entire process of homebuying seems daunting. there is much to consider when making a long-term investment, and it easy to overlook something that might later prove to be important. As an experience d realtor, Kirsten helped me through the process. She made sense of the daunting volumes of paperwork, was patient in leading me through (very) many places, and kept presenting me with multiple options to consider. Kirsten made the process go smoothly, and i am very happy with my new home. when i win the lotto and have millions to spend on a home, Kirsten will be the agent I contact to help me buy in, say, Buckhead!

Kirsten--Thank you, it has been a pleasure working with you. It is clear to me that you care about your clients and are on top of your business which is very important in our industry.

Brent Newell, Mortgage Banker (Quicken Loans)

Kirsten--thank you for all your help and hard work with acquiring my new home. You were always very helpful and patient while guiding me through my first home buying experience. You are very knowledgeable about the real estate market, completely thorough in your work, and a consummate professional. I appreciate how you were always willing to "go the extra mile" for me. Your help is greatly appreciated and I would have no hesitation in referring you to family and friends.

I used Kirsten both to sell my home in East Cobb and buy my new one in Alpharetta, and she was wonderful! She assisted me with staging my home, made sure that the pictures online showed all the upgrades I had done to my home, and even did a virtual tour. When I had issues that came up when I was out of town, she handled them for me. My home had almost a showing a day and sold in 13 days! The home I purchased with Kirsten was new construction and even though it was a high end builder, there were some problems during the construction phase...I probably would have told them to forget the whole thing if I hadn't had Kirsten there to handle things!

kirsten, thanks for practically picking us up from the airport and starting our search. we had such a short period of time in which to look for a home and with your help and expertise we pulled it off. thanks again for all your help. we are really enjoying our new home!

Thank you so much for all of the time and efforts you made to make my condo buying process a success. I truly wouldn't have been able to do it without all of your help and research. Thanks for going "above and beyond" to make my home buying dreams a reality!

Laura Pope (Buckhead)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kirsten: We both want to thank you so much for all of your wonderful assistance in finding our new home. Since we were unfamiliar with the area, you provided us with a wonderful overview of all of the Atlanta areas and helped us hone in on the several areas that you thought might meet our needs. Although we didn't have a great deal of time on our house-hunting trip, you had done significant research on the area and had developed a great list of houses that both met our requirements and were within our price ranges. We are so pleased with our new home. We couldn't have done it without you!

Kirsten is one of the most thorough realtors we have ever met. Before we made an offer on a beautiful lakeside home in Gwinnett, she investigated some erosion issues that we'd heard might be the responsibility of the new homeowner. She talked with the mayor, the city clerk, the city attorney and neighbors to determine the risks and help us arrive at a fair offer. She'll go the extra mile and really does have the client's best interest in mind. If you need a focused, detail-oriented, energetic professional to find you a home or a buyer, you couldn't do better than Ms. Conover.
