I had a farm property that I inherited that had a lien against it and was part of a protected green area. It didn’t have a survey and I didn’t really know how big it was. Dave told me it was an HST-applied property and Covid was upon us. Part of it was leased to a local farmer. It couldn’t get more complicated as the owner was a lawyer who had passed away and I was part of 3 people who had inherited the property. What a nightmare!
Without going into detail because there are too many to mention, Dave handled it all, including Township problems, HST problems, Lien issues, farm issues, dealing with 3 different lawyers, and all the attendant problems associated with all that as well as getting an offer and negotiating that.
I don’t know of any agent who would have the knowledge and patience to deal with what I thought were insurmountable obstacles but Dave got it done. All agents are not created equal and Dave Kelley is truly a top agent.

Ever since we met Dave as our real estate agent 25 years ago, we haven’t turned to any other agent. We trust his expertise and experience.
Dave is the type of real estate agent who is down to earth and gets things done without much ado. He is quick to understand his clients’ needs and does not attempt to impose his ideas on them. Every time when he helped us to buy a house, we got exactly what we were looking for. He thinks outside the box and we have never encountered a problem that he couldn’t solve.
Dave knows the real estate business and he quietly produces results. He helped us with several real estate transactions over the years. There were periods of 10 or 12 years when we didn’t keep in touch. But, all it took was one email, and Dave would reply within minutes. He always responds to our communications quickly, whether it is a Friday evening or Sunday morning. Dave has tons of patience for his clients. It once took us more than a year to find a house, and Dave never gave us any indication that we were wasting his time.
When we moved to Kingston in 2018, our friend recommended Dave to us. Dave went above and beyond his responsibilities as a real estate agent to meticulously show us houses within our limited budget and desired locations. As demonstrated that he found us a house within a quiet cul de sac that fits perfectly within our set budget. In addition, he willingly paid for our car garage opener, which the previous owner took with him (Who would do that!!!). Recently, we moved again. Based on what he did, we chose Dave again to represent us in selling our house. This time, he sold our house three days before the sale sign being posted. Besides his wealth of knowledge and vast experiences in real estate, we believe that he always treats all his clients sincerely, professionally, and respectfully. Should you be in need of a real estate agent in Kingston, we recommend you would give Dave a chance.”

I hired Dave to sell my house and needed to purchase another in Kingston. He was great. He was thorough, explained all my options as I had more than one offer on my house, and successfully negotiated a price higher than my asking price. On my purchase, I was in a competition with 3 other offers and successfully won the negotiation and purchased the home. Dave is knowledgeable and experienced in all things real estate and always picks up his phone when I call. You can’t go wrong with him and I will recommend him to anyone.

Serving in the Canadian Armed Forces I was transferred to Kingston from a posting overseas in Naples, Italy. Myself along with my wife and 2 kids had a very short window to buy a property in a very busy market with many multiple offer situations. Dave found a way to organize a preemptive bully offer on a newly listed property which I purchased. I was extremely happy with Dave’s expertise and recommend him for either buying or selling.
We contacted Dave upon the recommendation of friends. Dave was committed to making our experience a smooth one right from the start! He immediately connected with us to discuss everything.
We were concerned there would be multiple offers on the house we chose in Kingston because the existing conditional sale was expiring that evening and we knew there were other viewers booked that same day. Dave immediately helped us decide on a firm offer, drew it up, came to our hotel for signatures, and was able to present it and have it accepted within a couple of hours of the viewing!
Dave responded to messages and calls immediately throughout the weeks leading up to our buying trip. He listened attentively to our needs, kept us posted on listings before our home in the GTA sold, and helped us seek out properties within our budget and preferred areas once we were ready to buy in Kingston. He offered advice in a professional manner and always responded promptly and positively. I believe we were successful in buying our house thanks to Dave’s excellent knowledge, commitment to customer service, effective communication and negotiating skills. For a reliable real estate agent with your interests at heart, you need to look no further than Dave Kelley!
