Kelly Dean is a consummate professional. She not only found us a home within our budget but also in a quiet, friendly neighborhood that meets our needs. She went above & beyond what one would normally expect a realtor to do. She was instrumental in the sale of our townhouse which enabled us to afford our new home. Relentless in the pursuit of “doing the right thing”, she insured that all parties were satisfied and that all legalities were meticulously adhered to. I would highly recommend Kelly Dean and the firm, Buy the Beach Realty, for any real estate transactions you may be considering.
Kelly did a great job of marketing our house. She diligently handled all of the issues that arose as the sale was in progress and ironed out some issues at closing time. She stayed on top of the entire process. We enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to anyone looking to sell their property.
"It is our immense pleasure to recommend Kelly Dean as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. We spent two years with Kelly (2018-2019)searching for a new home. She was always so patient and responsive to our needs. Kelly knew exactly what we were looking for, she did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs. She is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale. In addition, Kelly is a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customer. She treated us as a member of her family. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly affable with an engaging personality. Most important to us, Kelly was honest. She would steer us away from properties that she knew may cause problems in the future. Kelly let us know when our expectations were out of line with reality. We are pleased to recommend Kelly Dean to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business and in our opinion, if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice, as well as my children's first choice. An outstanding, customer-first, real estate agent."
I found Kelly Dean to be very responsive in helping leading me through the Home purchase process. She had an excellent knowledge of all real estate in the area, she was able to hone In on what was important to me. In addition because I live 750 miles away she served as my eyes and feet on the ground in order to make sure that everything was accomplished always representing my interests. I would highly recommend Kelly for anyone searching to purchase a house In the Outer Banks! She was a pleasure to work with.

Kelly provided the most pleasing experience I have ever had. She went above and beyond to insure that everything was in order and correct. She even watched our grandson while we engaged in conversations with a contractor. I highly recommend that everyone looking to purchase in the area choose Kelly Dean.
Kelly has been the best Real Estate Agent my wife and I have ever worked with. Her knowledge of the Outer Banks is unbelievable she stayed right with us as we toured each house, she kept notes for discussion later and took valuable pictures. She walked us thru the mortgage process and went beyond helping us with all of our needs. I had originally sent an e-mail with our request to view homes to another company that took 3 weeks to answer and we never heard back from them again,boy I am glad Kelly picked us up. From me, my wife and our son thank you ever so much. I told her that all of our friends & family would come for her help also.
We would not have moved into our dream home without Kelly. She is a delight to work with and handled everything. I would work with her again if I ever needed to buy or sell my home

What a pleasure it was to work with Kelly Dean on the purchase of our condo. She definitely went above and beyond to assist us in getting all the details we needed to make our decision. We visited several properties with her until we found the perfect one for us. She was great on the follow-up to make sure everything fell into place in time for an easy closing. We highly recommend her! Thanks for everything, Kelly! 5/5
Kelly Dean is knowledgeable, professional, diligent and always one step ahead with communication. Kelly saw us through from searching for the right home to closing, making the entire process of relocating an easy transition. If I ever have sell or buy again, I would go to no one else but Kelly at Buy the Beach Realty.
"We actually lucked into Kelly via a flyer in front of a house in Kill Devil Hills that was for sale a couple of years ago. We contacted her last fall when we were ready to look at beach houses. She immediately responded and I don't see how our experience could have been better. She provided many showings of houses that fit our criteria, answered every question quickly and accurately, and led us seamlessly through the buying and negotiation process. She provided us with many contacts for services after we bought the house and has also helped us dispose of some items in the house that we didn't want. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house in OBX. Scott Schoedler"
"Kelly was fantastic from start to finish. Her local knowledge is only surpassed by her attention to detail. She made the entire process easy and rewarding. Kelly is our only choice from now on!" 5/5
"Our experience in buying a vacation home in the Outer Banks was smooth and painless. This is because of the wonderful realtor Kelly Dean. She was knowledgeable of the area. She listened to what we wanted in a vacation home and found homes that met those requests. Once we found the home we wanted, she proved to be a true Buyers Agent, representing on our behalf. She thought of every detail that we would need to address and made sure it was done in a timely manner. We have bought and sold many homes and she by far has been the best Realtor we have ever had. We recommend KellyDean to anyone needing realtor service!"
" 5/5 We loved working with Kelly. She was never pushy or put pressure on us to hurry and settle on a house. Since this was a second home for us on the Outer Banks, Kelly was always available to spend her weekends visiting any newly listed houses that interested us. She was diligent in following thru on everything dealing with the sellers, the loan and the closing. She also offered her opinion and expert advice whenever we needed it which I found very useful. In my opinion she made the whole buying experience perfect for us."
Kelly Dean is the most complete agent you could ever want. Her professionalism, character, and caring personality is second to none. Not to mention her knowledge in every aspect of the process. My Husband and I have bought 2 houses and sold one with Kelly. What could have been a painful experience was nothing but awesome because of all Kelly does. She leaves nothing uncovered from start to way beyond the finish. Kelly Dean you are the BEST!!!!
Buy the Beach Realty is top notch! We could not have asked for a smoother transaction from beginning to end! All of our questions were answered so quickly and any of our doubts were swiftly reassured. Kelly is very knowledgeable so we were very confident that we were in good hands. We are super excited about our new house and absolutely could not have done it without Kelly's help and expertise! We highly recommend Buy the Beach Realty."
