"I moved to Calgary after spending many years in Toronto and Vancouver. My understanding of real estate was skewed and simplistic. Kelley was extremely patient and took as much time as needed to help me understand what i was looking for, what things would cost and every step of the process. He showed me more than 40 properties over several months and maintained his enthusiasm every step of the way. I would highly recommend Kelley as an agent."

"Kelley Skar was a great listing agent. He really listened to our needs and didn't push a listing price on us that we weren't comfortable with just to make a quick sale (as other realtors had done that we interviewed prior to selecting Kelley). He was great with communication and had a great negotiation strategy. Thanks Kelley!!!"
Lyndsay Hansen, Calgary (Seller) Tue, 13 Feb 2018 23:13:28 +1000
"I initially thought the home buying experience would be stressful and confusing. Kelley Skar removed all of the stress and set things out in a very clear, reassuring and orderly manner. This is probably why Kelley was highly recommended to me and is the same reason I would recommend Kelley to friends and family."

"Kelley went above and beyond to help us find a home. He showed all of the personality traits above at all times during our interactions.
The follow up after our sale has been amazing!! Kelley also generously gave us a wine tasting event in our home that was hosted by an expert in her field. Great memories were made in our new home thanks to Kelley!
Kelley was great at negotiating through a difficult sale and getting us the best deal we could get. We are so pleased with our home and the price that was negotiated."

"Kelley was recommended to us by a friend and we are happy we chose to go with him as our realtor.
He was friendly, professional and helpful throughout our search for a new home, and we are very happy with the home we bought.
Kelley has been helpful with the technical aspects of the property purchase, securing lawyers, and with helping to list our condo."
Scott McNeill, Calgary (Buyer) Wed, 14 Jun 2017 06:28:03 +1000
"My agent in Langley, BC recommended Kelley Skar and as I had full trust in Cory, I felt very comfortable in using Kelley even though I had never met him or knew of anyone who had. After our initial meeting by email and the property selections Kelley set up, I was very happy with my decision to use Kelley.
Coming from BC, I expected some difficulties with the whole process. Kelley made every part of it easy and answered all of my questions. My transition here was smooth. I appreciated Kelley's willingness to work with an out of town buyer.
Overall, a great experience. Kelley was very friendly, knowledgeable, professional and helpful.
The other staff in the office who helped with the documents and appointments were tremendously helpful."
Karen Anderson, Calgary (Buyer) Thu, 25 May 2017 07:46:03 +1000
"Kelley Skar was knowledgable and guided us through the process every step of the way. We had an unfortunate set back with our first property we had looked at purchasing and when we where ready to pursue our new house Kelley was prompt and took care of everything with short notice. We would recommend him to anyone purchasing a home and will use him again when we need to upgrade for our growing families needs!"

We were able to locate a property and close the sale to my satisfaction in a very short period of time. I am looking forward to working with him on the sale of my current home."
Deana Penman, Calgary (Buyer) Sat, 13 Aug 2016 03:48:21 +1000
"Kelley has been our realtor for our last 2 moves and we cannot express how comfortable we feel having Kelley. We don't worry about a thing and just leave it in his hands.
We have recommended Kelley to our friends and they have all had the same experience as ours. I will recommend him again and again."
Karen - Chestermere AB (Seller) Thu, 21 Jul 2016 09:48:19 +1000

It was not another broker to whom we spoke. It was a lady at the front desk. She was very helpful."
Alma & Don Smith (Buyer) Fri, 15 Jul 2016 00:58:43 +1000
"I worked with Kelley in 2012 to buy a home when I first moved to Calgary. 4 years later when I decided to sell my home and move I just contacted Kelley did not even think about talking to any one else because of the excellent experience I had working with him.
Kelley is a wonderful person to work with. He is very flexible and willing to work around your schedule. He is very knowledgeable and is able to provide sound advice, especially for a first time home buyer/seller like me and with the current market situation.
I’ll gladly work with Kelley Skar again and would recommend him to anyone looking for an awesome agent."
Mahmod S Mohamed, Calgary (Seller) Wed, 13 Apr 2016 12:14:13 +1000

"Kelley Skar did a great job selling our home. This is the first time we have sold a property and Kelley explained every step of the process clearly.An effective marketing plan was implemented immediately and our home sold in less than a week - even at a supposedly "difficult" time. We were thrilled with Kelley and UP Real Estate Group!"
Jolanda Slagmolen, Calgary (Seller) Thu, 15 Oct 2015 15:57:20 +1000
"We came across Up Real Estate while still in Ireland, prior to moving to Calgary. We were contacted by Kelley Skar after we arrived and found him to be helpful, accommodating, patient and knowledgeable about the Calgary housing market. We thus remained with Kelley despite a large range of available realtors who contacted us through friends and work referrals. I would certainly recommend Kelley to a friend, he is personable and professional; we really enjoyed working with him."
Alison Byrne, NW Calgary (Buyer) Wed, 02 Sep 2015 09:18:28 +1000
"We are very happy with the quick sale of our home in a more challenging market. At all times Kelley was professional and involved in the process. His use of technology kept us aware of what was going on with our home and made signing contracts very convenient. This is the 4th home that we have sold (previously using other agents) and both of us feel that this was by far our best experience. Kelley is passionate about being professional, innovative and maintaining high levels of integrity in running his business."
Nicole Bullock, Calgary (Seller) Wed, 11 Mar 2015 14:25:50 +1000
"So nice to have such wonderful help from Kelley getting our home ready for sale, taking great professional photos and video and making the sale of our home smooth, quick and successful! Could not have asked for better service and results!
Kelley stuck with us through some risky decisions and gave us his best professional opinion in all of the situations. Our needs and requirements were met with our short time frame finding our new home for our family to grow. Even with the headaches from the other listing agent and previous owners, we love our new home and can see us living there for many many year! Thanks Kelley for your solid commitment to us!"

"Working with Kelley Skar made the whole experience of looking for and buying a house not only easy, but truly enjoyable. Great guy, great job. I would highly recommend Kelley and his team.
James Brown, Calgary (Buyer) Fri, 05 Sep 2014 11:48:04 +1000
"Kelley Skar sold our property without it even going on the market. He took the initiative after our listing appointment (before he even had the official listing) to call around to his connections to see if anyone had a buyer. Our property sold quickly without any stress or bumps along the way. Kelley was transparent, easily accessible and responsive throughout the entire process. We have already started to recommend Kelley to our friends and family!"
Meaghan Blight, Cochrane AB (Seller) Wed, 04 Jun 2014 06:50:50 +1000
"Kelly Skar and Paula are a great team. After explaining to Kelly that we wanted to sell are place quickly he was able to have the condo listed in 1 day. This included a video and 20 photos. His is very well connected, which resulted in our condo conditional selling with in 4 HOURS!!! AT 16G MORE THEN ASKING PRICE!!! Most of all the speed of his work is what I would recommend the most."
Sunalta Kaede (Seller) Fri, 24 Jan 2014 17:20:37 +1000
"We sold our condo using Kelly Skar as our agent and he sold our unit for our price within 3 days and closed within a month.
He showed he has an excellent feel for the market and exudes confidence and focus. He was happy to provide us with what turned out to be a very accurate and fair property evaluation a month before we listed - at no cost or obligation in order to help us decide if we should sell or not.
When we called him to list he was punctual, clear, polite and efficient and took time to listen to our desires and provide very helpful advice and suggestions. Where ever he can he uses the latest tools and technology to speed up listing, changes, amendments and signatures (Ipad, pro-video, pro-photography, docu-sign, e-mail, staging expert etc.) After listing his professionalism kicks into high gear and drives the sale with advertising and a parade of showings that require your attention and cooperation.
Also, we used a lawyer which Kelly recommended and two entire transactions (the sale and a purchase in another city) went through smoothly with all terms as agreed on schedule and with only one visit.
We highly recommend Kelly and his team for your real estate needs - period."
Jerry an, Calgaryd Rachelle Bowers, Windsor Park (Seller) Thu, 16 Jan 2014 06:33:08 +1000
"I had another realtor view my property and give a market evaluation. Both realtors came to their evaluations through a similar process. That is not what sold me when choosing a realtor. Kelley explained the selling process and outlined all that would be done before, during and after. I trusted that the stress would be minimal. The experience was fantastic and somewhat easy! Not what I expected at all...my expectations were exceeded! I would recommend Kelley Skar again and again to all my friends and family."
