She is extremely thorough and communicates with you during the whole process. We found Kellie to be informative and very patient as we decided on a house to buy.

Responsiveness, knowledge of the market, and availability are 3 key pillars you need your realtor to have, and Jessica goes above beyond on every aspect of these pillars!

Jessica was always responsive when we had any questions during the process, and more importantly, when we needed to get answers from other parties, she was on top of it! Buying a home during a pandemic is no easy task, and placing an offer while on vacation made it that much more complicated. Jessica was always available to show us a home, and with the home that we ended up purchasing, she even did a FaceTime call with us while we were out of town! We highly recommend Jessica to anyone interested in purchasing your next home, as she makes the process seamless, even though you know there is so much work going on behind the scenes!

I've been recommending her to everyone, they won't be disappointed.

We loved working with Kellie.

They knew the market well and priced our home perfectly. Our home sold in several days! And we sold for higher than we thought we could ever wish to get. They highlighted the updates to our house, told us how to make it look good in the photos online, and we couldn't be more pleased!

Jessica has been such a great partner to work with while selling our home.

She is extremely knowledgeable, responsive and proactive. She does a great job providing you with recommendations on the buying and selling process, but really allows you to be a big part of the decision making. She made the process easy and has provided many wonderful recommendation/referrals for vendors. She is fun to work with and truly understands the industry! We would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for an amazing agent to work with!

she is a very hard working individual that was always available and very helpful on our recent purchase of a Townhouse. It's been over 25 years since we bought a home and she was extremely helpful and supportive. Her years of experience helped us to make the right decision for us. When we asked and wanted her honest opinions and advice she was there to help and advise. We look forward to working with Kellie for those expertise and support as we are getting to put our house on the market.

Jessica is flat out a great person.

She is knowledgeable, warm, goes the extra mile, beautiful person inside and out and our house went under contract the day it hit the MLS! She made the sale of our home from 4 hrs away, smooth and convenient. She handled all of the maintenance and repairs (and cleaning!) on top of everything else involved. I can't say enough good things about this wonderful person!

Kimberly Lucey

Holly was absolutely by far the best realtor we could have asked for.

She is quick and very informative. She made us feel comfortable during the entire process and made sure we knew every step! She exceeded all expectations and more! She made our first home buying experience a breeze. We would recommend Holly to anyone looking to buy or sell their home, she was a joy to work with.


Jessica was a blessing in the purchase of our home.

I would highly recommend her to friends and family, that are selling or purchasing a home. Thanks for all of your help through the process.

Lewis Heiert

It was a pleasure working with Dave.

Always available and worked with us whenever and wherever needed. Knows the Cincinnati area very well. Would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

Paul Z.

We would highly recommend Kathy.

She is extremely professional, has a wealth of experience and is very current with the industry trends. We sold our house in one day, and we attribute that to Kathy's advise on preparing our home for sale, her marketing/sales reach and the timing of our listing. All of these things were directed by Kathy and the KBA team. Don't know why anyone would chose any other agency.

Patricia K

Lori is the best!

Hard working knowledgeable and very responsive. Great great great.

Tom & Joan B

Lori is one of a kind!

She worked so hard. My fiancé and I started looking for a home in January 2021. We saw house after house put in multiple offers and finally 7 months later found our dream home. We put in 12 offers and finally got out 1. Lori was with us every step of the way guiding mentoring and educating us on each step in the process. Although it took months to find out home this process taught us patients and lead us to the best house we ever looked at. Lori kept our heads steady and when the time was right all the chips fell into place. Her patience knowledge and compassion is unmatched. She receives my highest amount of praise! We are so thankful for her and everything she has done for us.

Christin G.

Job transition has required us to relocate multiple times.

Of all the agents we have worked with over the years Lori is by far and away the very best. Her attention to detail and knowledge of what to expect to happen next saved us from a lot of anxiety and frustration. She is on top of her game and guides you with a sense of humor that is warm and reassuring.

Ken & Jan V

Tara provided excellent service, and always made sure my well being was at the center of her commitment.

Cooper B. - September 2018

Gary Haussler

Jessica is an excellent person and realtor.

She was always a phone call or text away when needed. As a seller and buyer at the same time, things get a little hectic. Jessica made the process smooth and made sure we were happy throughout the whole process. I would definitely recommend Jessica to anyone buying or selling.

Not only is she a great real estate agent but she is also very caring and understanding. She goes the extra mile for her clients. If I get the opportunity to recommend Kathy to family or friends I will definitely do so. She made our experience top notch.”

Marcus T

Tara was great to work with.

She knew our market very well. She did exactly what she said she was going to and sold our house very quickly!

Mike M. - August 2020

Recently I had a sale on a listing contract that came in at the 11th hour.

? Because my seller had already signed a new listing contract for the following day, I had to negotiate the offer all the way through AND get it pending before midnight.?? ? Because of the situation, I needed access to the MLS and Kellie came through with flying colors. She kept up with the negotiation process via text & voice messages. AND she stuck around long enough to help me get it pending before midnight and saved the listing/sale for me.? It was definitely above and beyond and much appreciated. Thank you to Kel for her dedication to our agents. We are lucky to have her.


I have only good things to say about Dave Shirmer.

He is an excellent communicator and was always on top of every detail. He was recommended to me by my daughter and I would pass on that recommendation to anyone who reads this. You will not find a better real estate agent.

Paul M.

Dave was very responsive and insightful on the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home.

We appreciated his guidance and advice throughout the process. We sold in four days!

Dave was an excellent agent with great communication skills and support!

I would definitely recommend him.

Tim E.

Kathy was not only knowledgeable but also very focused on my needs as a very particular buyer.

Kathy was very patient and so enjoyable. She found the perfect solution for me and I consider her a great friend She is the quintessential realtor.

Carolyn S

She is a real pro; knows the market and how to navigate the process.

Equally important she can point out possible concerns and how to best address around those concerns to create a positive experience. Teaming with fellow agent Holly Fay provides a comprehensive sales and support structure.

Bill R.

Dave is exceptional as a real estate agent.

We learned from his knowledge of the housing market which made our home buying experience enjoyable. His communication skills are phenomenal especially during the time when we were in negotiations with our purchased home (which was not originally on our list; however Dave mentioned the home to us when it came on the market and we decided to schedule a viewing. Needless to say we liked the house enough to put in an offer!)

Jim S.

Kathy is the simply the best.

Knowledgeable, great customer service and gets the best deal. We will never work with another agent. 

Ryan R

We LOVE Dave and he is the best at what he does.

I would never use another agent in Cincinnati. We have bought and sold 3 homes in different parts of the city with Dave and he knows real estate. If you hire Dave you will not be disappointed.

Todd H.

Jessica was extremely helpful, especially with me being a first time home buyer.

She was always available when I had questions or wanted a showing. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great home buying experience without a pushy agent. I never felt like I was being pushed to purchase something I didn't want.

Mark Doerman

Holly was amazing!

!! Very informative and on top of things. Couldn't have asked for a better realtor or experience. We will definitely be using her in the future and recommending her to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home.


Jessica, Thank you so much for all of your help with selling our old house.

As you know we had lived their for a long time and it was hard for us to let it go. You were patient and kind with the process of putting it on the market. Your guidance and expertise allowed us to sell it quickly. When it came to buying our new house you were there to guide the process again. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and making selling our old house and buying our new home so easy! Warmest Regards The Fangman Family

Sara Fangman

Jessica did a great job selling our home.

She did everything we expected from a professional agent such as listing the house and holding open house events. It's what she did above and beyond those expectations that set her apart. She walked through our house and helped us to better stage it. She found contractors for various things we needed through her network and that saved us a lot of time and hassle. All in all we sold our house in less than 40 days. I'd recommend her highly.

Tina R.

Dave is the best.

Knowledgeable friendly reliable and available when you need him. A great communicator throughout the process. I was extremely pleased with the work Dave did to sell our house.

Paul G

Lori is an outstanding agent.

She cares about her clients so much and always had our best interest in mind when buying our first home. She was patient with us throughout the 7 month process and was always willing to meet us at houses with little notice despite already having a crazy busy schedule. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else!
