Kiki Mikkelsen had lived in her traditional, brick Kennesaw home for 25 years and raised her children there. Recently remarrying, Kiki and her new husband decided to retire to beautiful Daphne, Alabama to start their lives together near the beach, but they needed to sell the Kennesaw home, before they could move.

Kiki had listed her home with an agent, but the home just sat on the market with few showings and no offers for several months. Frustrated with her experience, Kiki withdrew the home from the market and pondered her options going forward. Googling “Top Cobb County Agents”, Kiki came across The Connie Carlson Team and liked what she saw online. She called the office and set an appointment with Listing Agent, Abby Hood, for that Sunday afternoon.

After meeting with Abby, Kiki said, “We knew right away from her presentation that we had found our agent.” The Connie Carlson Team went straight to work, setting Kiki up with our fabulous stager and had beautiful, professional photos taken. “Other agents said there is no magic marketing plan but I am a believer that there is. The team had gotten our listing ready to hit the market Friday morning and it would have been interesting to see how her system works,” says Kiki.

However, there was no need for Kiki to leave the house for multiple showings or “see how the system works,” because The Connie Carlson Team brought her a buyer, before the house even hit the market.

Brad and Amanda, a young couple with a growing family had their Marietta condo under contract and were looking for the perfect home in Kennesaw in which to settle. Abby, who was also their Buyer’s Agent, let them know about Kiki’s upcoming listing, and showed them the photos that had just been taken. They immediately wanted to see it, and Kiki agreed for a last minute, late evening showing for Brad and Amanda, who immediately fell in love with the property.

After an easy negotiation and a fun closing, Kiki was able to move to the beach and Brad and Amanda moved into their dream home, where they will spend many happy years and make so many memories with their children.

When asked about her experience, Kiki simply said, “I have no doubt that even if she didn't have a buyer in hand that with her approach to marketing that our home would have sold quickly. If Connie sends Abby your way know you are in good hands. There is a reason Team Connie is so highly rated, she gets results!!”

Here is what Brad and Amanda had to say about their experience, “Abby and the team at KW walked us through every step of the process for selling our old home and purchasing a new one. Abby addressed our concerns, answered our questions, and made us feel confident in our decisions. It felt as though she made us a priority and genuinely cared about finding the perfect home for our family.”
