    Chike gave Kalpna 5 stars out of 5
    As first time home buyers, we needed someone who knew the area extremely well, was an expert negotiator, and willing to walk us through every aspect of the process. Kalpna was referred to us by a coworker, and was exactly the right agent for us. She was a pleasure to work with, quick to respond to our question via text or phone, and always ready to make a connection. Lender, inspector, contractor, lawyer, you name if she either knows who to direct you to, or can have a name for you within the hour. You will enjoy working with Kalpna and she will help you find the home for you.

    As a first time home buyer, it's an absolutely daunting step into an unknown world. I was recommended to Kalpna by one of my best friends and honestly I probably owe him a dinner or two. There's so much I can write about how Kalpna helped me throughout the process and it's probably easiest to organize into 3 groups: Knowledge and Guidance - I honestly knew nothing about buying a house when I first reached out to Kalpna in October of last year. All I knew was I had some money saved up and I wanted to take advantage of low interest rates with a price range for my first house. The best part working with Kalpna was that she let me learn at my own pace which allowed me to figure out exactly what house/location I truly wanted and it was the opposite of what I initially thought I wanted. Honesty and Trust - You want your agent to be someone who will be honest with you and not just say yes to any idea/desire that pops into your head. Right from the get-go I got that vibe from Kalpna and it's that honesty which leads to the trust that at the end of the day she has your best interest in mind. Negotiation and Close - All the warm and fuzzies aside, ultimately you need someone in your corner who's going to close the deal and work through all the unexpected and unpredictable stuff that inevitably pops up. Personally speaking, my purchase was a bit difficult due to the seller's situation and Kalpna was able to smoothly navigate through the challenges and get us to the finish line. I probably wrote too much, but TLDR if you want a fantastic agent I can't recommend Kalpna highly enough.

    Whenever my friends and colleagues talk about building equity and how to buy a home in the US, I feel like saying: that's great, but I only moved here some time ago, and I lack your experience. Kalpna came to the rescue with her in-depth understanding of the housing market in NC. Furthermore, she appreciated all of our specific wishes as Europeans when it comes to features and designs - she summed it up for us by saying: a cookie cutter design won't do it for y'all. I don't know how we would have succeeded without her. High recommended.

    Kalpna is a joy to work with. She has helped us sell 2 homes and purchase 2 homes. In both instances we were juggling multiple deadlines which she navigated with ease, and in one she helped us work through some shenanigans on the part of our potential buyers. She has always helped us get into the best home for our family and looked out for us. I cannot recommend Kalpna highly enough!

    Jean gave Kalpna 5 stars out of 5
    I feel my experience with Kalpna was a very unique one. I am a first time homebuyer, and working on a limited income. I had saved diligently to purchase a home and was ready to find my home immediately. I was so very wrong indeed! Kalpna first and foremost got to know me and what my needs and wants were. She didn't just get a number from me and flood me with properties that fit that budget. She took the time to look into each property with me, paying close attention to those details that a first time buyer would never think to look for. She was honest with me from start to finish, never allowing me to get into a situation that would have a negative impact on my future. There is so much more to searching for the perfect home than just looking at the fresh paint and freshly carpeted floors. Kalpna gets on her hands and knees and looks at the pipes and at the foundation of the home. She makes sure to look at the age and quality of the roof and HVAC systems. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor to help me and would recommend Kalpna to anyone searching for a home.

    One should consider themself lucky if they get to work with Kalpna. Not only is she knowledgable, highly-skilled and professional, she is also incredibly genuine. She was endlessly patient and gracious as we searched for the right home for me. I felt that I could ask her anything'”there were no stupid questions'”which for a first-time, single home-buyer, was invaluable. She presented facts in an unbiased and straightforward manner while simultaneously sharing insights and sincere opinions to help me make a decision. I never felt pressured. She's so hard-working'”a memory comes to mind of her crouching down in the mud to peek into a crawl space while wearing the most delicate heels'”now that was commitment! Highly recommend.

    Excellent agent! Kalpna went beyond the call of duty for me. Kalpna's knowledge of forms and her expertise in the field, gave me peace of mind. Kalpna still takes the time to check in on me from time to time after we already closed on my beautiful home!

    Saranya gave Kalpna 5 stars out of 5
    I have known Kalpna for over 4 years and in that time she has helped us buy 2 houses and sell 1. What I appreciate the most about her is that she is willing to give you her honest opinion, but is never pushy. She is very knowledgeable about real estate trends in the triangle area, and as such has been able to help us buy houses with excellent value in excellent neighborhoods.  Kalpna is very reliable and always follows up on any conversations we have had. She goes above and beyond to make sure we are satisfied with her services. As an example, she took over and helped us remodel our investment property before we sold it. She came up with the design plans, coordinated with vendors and labor to get the house re-done within the stipulated time frame and budget. She truly made our life easier, and we are extremely happy with the sale of that property.  Additionally, Kalpna is an overall great human being with a good sense of humor. I have loved working with her! I have highly recommended her to my friends and will continue to do so.

    Saranya gave Kalpna 5 stars out of 5
    We were first time home buyers and working with Kalpana made it so much easier. She was very open and honest about the house, the location, its condition. She was never pushy and let us make our own decisions. She was very prompt in all her communications and was always a phone call away when we had a question. She also helped us with finding contractors to fix things up and gave us a lot of ideas and suggestions. Kalpana went above and beyond to help us and I would definitely call her when I buy my next house and recommend her to anyone without hesitation!

    Paul gave Kalpna 5 stars out of 5
    A friend told me about Kalpna years before we were even thinking of buying a house. I wrote her name down, and I'm glad I did. Don't want to bash anyone else, but we met with a pretty well-known realtor in the area and didn't leave with the best impression. Then I remembered Kalpna. Reached out to her, and within days we had an offer accepted, 10% below asking, in an extremely hot seller's market. With her responsiveness, professionalism, friendliness, and ridiculous negotiation skills, I wouldn't want anyone else in our corner. Thank you, Kalpna - sorry this took so long!

    Vilma gave Kalpna 5 stars out of 5
    When I think of Kalpna, only superlatives come to my mind. She is simply amazing and wonderful, a true Mary Poppins of real estate. Out of her knowledge and experience bag she can pull out the most amazing homes and deals and her patience is limitless! She never pushes you to do things strictly for the money, takes everything you say into account and is very mindful of your finances. I loved that she wouldn't let me make quick, emotional decisions and honestly would tell me if she did not think the house was the right fit. She made the entire house buying experience fun and when I finally did find the house, Kalpna made the deal happen despite of multiple offers and fierce bidding. She is also very calm, confident and intuitive - she would call me or text me throughout all long home-search process and also during negotiations/closing to assure me that things were going well. Kalpna has assembled a truly outstanding team of professionals who, just like she, makes sure all bases are covered and is available round the clock. She is an awesome negotiator, a true professional and also someone you want to hang out after all this is said and done. I cannot recommend Kalpna highly enough!

    Amazing realtor to work with. Very polite, easy going, down to earth, and knows how to find what you're looking for! I highly recommend using Kalpna for your next home purchase. Thank you for being amazing Kalpna.

    Kalpna is an amazing realtor! I highly recommend her. She helped my husband and I find our first starter home several years ago and then she helped us sell that same house and helped us buy our second home. She works tirelessly and truly keeps her clients best interest at heart. You also can tell she loves what she does.

    Kalpna is an amazing realtor! She goes above and beyond for her clients. I'm so thankful to have had her for the purchase of my first home. I highly recommend her! She really does so much to make sure you are getting a good deal and that you are happy with all aspects.

    Kiet gave Kalpna 5 stars out of 5
    This is the second time I've used Kalpna and just like the first time, she exceeded my expectations in every area. This purchase was a new construction and since it was the first time, she walked me through the whole process from picking the lot, picking options on the house, upgrades, communication with the builders, issues, and so much more. Without her help, the whole new construction process would have been very overwhelming but thanks to her it wasn't. I couldn't have asked for a more friendly, detail oriented, driven, and passionate person when it comes to helping you find / build the perfect house!

    Kiet gave Kalpna 5 stars out of 5
    As a first time buyer, I was *very* fortunate to have Kalpna as my agent. Based on what I was looking for, not only did she meet but exceeded all my expectations in finding the ideal house. In addition to this she excels in home inspections, negotiation (Which ended up saving me several thousand dollars!), property value, local knowledge, tenacity, and attention to details which is someone you want on your side when purchasing a home for the first time or the 100th time. Her services were truly amazing and those of her service partners were as well from the loan officer (Keith Ennis) down to the attorney (Nathan Zaleski). Buying a house is very stressful to say the least (Especially the first time) but Kalpna and her partners have made this process painless and I would definitely employ her services again when buying or selling a house. Thank you for your hard work and your continuation on following up even after everything been said and done.

    Kalpna is simply the best. We need a new word to describe someone so good at what they do and so dedicated to going above and beyond. She's an expert realtor, fierce negotiator, and wonderfully genuine person. While this was not our first home purchase, we were relocating from the Midwest and new to the Triangle area. Kalpna worked equally as hard for us remotely as she did when we were in town. She took the time to get to know us, our situation, and our goals. We ended up deciding to build and, in the meantime, she helped us research and confirm a rental home in the Triangle while we waited for our build and was a terrific sounding board when strategizing how to get our Midwest house sold in the dead of winter'”examples of the many ways she goes the extra mile. When any difficult issues surfaced, Kalpna's vigor and confidence bolstered our quest for success. We can't say enough good things about Kalpna and could easily go on and on...The bottom line: she is the utmost real estate professional and you definitely want her in your corner no matter the situation.

    Jennifer gave Kalpna 5 stars out of 5
    Kalpna is a wonderful person and an amazing real estate agent! She made what could have been an overwhelming process a smooth and streamlined one. She introduced me to my amazing team and kept everyone informed every step of the way. This was my first home purchase, and Kalpna very patiently hand-held me through my many, many questions and anxieties. She really took the time to get to know me and understand what I was seeking even when I wasn't crystal clear about it. She is so knowledgable about home selling and home buying, as well as homes in general! Her comments and observations about the actual physical structure were completely in line with what the inspector said...I really think she could be an inspector herself if she wanted to. She has exactly the same level of knowledge about the different geographical areas in my city, decorating, the whole 9 yards. Most important is that she has an excellent rapport with those people who are crucial for a smooth process, i.e. other real estate agents, bankers and contractors. They all esteem her greatly, even those who had not worked with her before. In my situation, the seller's agent said exactly this to me, that but for her, I wouldn't have landed in what truly is my dream home as the sellers took a leap of faith with me, and it was the relationship she developed with their agent - with whom she previously had not met - from the first call that gave him the confidence in her word to give them the confidence to choose my bid. She possesses some special "x" factor and she really fights for you. I think she wants it as much as you do. That's a great partner to have in an agent. And, her guidance hasn't stopped. As I've moved in, she's still been willing to talk with me and give me advice and counsel about so many different things. I consider that Kalpna is going to remain a part of my circle as long as I have this home, and if I ever sold (which I don't plan to do), she will be my agent, and if I bought again, she would, as well! I couldn't recommend her highly enough, and am very grateful to her for all she did for me.

    We met Kalpna through our son, she helped him with all of his properties. We felt confident using Kalpna for our real-estate needs in finding the perfect property for us. She was thorough in finding out our needs and goals and provided us with the right properties and excellent customer service. Kalpna negotiated a great contract on our behalf. She put us in the property we loved. Barrett and Sawyer

    Working with Kalpna as our Realtor was truly a privileged!. She was very professional in every regard, always on time for the showings, giving us great insight on the market and the properties we visited. Once we made the decision to make an offer, Kalpna made the process go extremely smooth and made sure we got the best posible outcome. She is extremely knowledgeable of the market, and the best negotiator we have work within the Real Estate market, she know exactly when to press and went to release. Thanks to her, we know have a wonderful place that we call home. If we ever need to sell or buy again we most definitely will be calling her again. Thanks so much Kalpna!!!!

    Kalpna is very knowledgeable and professional. She was able to help us close the house successfully in a challenging market. We were out of country and she made sure to take proper care of our property and went above and beyond to help us. Kalpna has extensive experience and she was always immediately available to talk. Her people skills are first class and she really listens. Kalpna emphasizes that all decisions are in the hands of the seller, but she's there to provide balanced objective advice and guidance in a timely manner. I highly recommend her to help people with their real estate needs. She is ultimate professional who has a detailed knowledge of today's real estate market and not to forget she keeps the process fun and light and is in your corner negotiating the best deal for you in this competitive market.

    Hannah gave Kalpna 5 stars out of 5
    I've waited much longer than I should to write this review. This is primarily due to the pressure of writing a review worthy of Kalpna and her talents. She is a phenomenal realtor. She is flexible, kind, and caring. She is also a fierce negotiator and someone you would want on your side of the table. She went above and beyond to help us find the perfect place and negotiated 10% off asking price in a market where everything was in a bidding war. She even watched our 3 month old while we went in to look at a house. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and we plan to use her again when we are ready for our next adventure.

    Harrison gave Kalpna 5 stars out of 5
    BOTTOM LINE: Kalpna is uncommonly dedicated to her craft and I would recommend her without reservation for any type of buyer (resident, investor, etc) at any price range. I am VERY late in writing this review, and Kalpna deserves better! I checked each strength listed below because I witnessed her exhibiting all of them, but I'll focus on what really stood out during out time together: 1) Dedication, patience, and integrity: Kalpna worked with me for a long time - around six months in total. I was looking for a place under $250k, which is a pretty tight market in Raleigh. I called off the search after the firt few months because I had to travel for work; Kalpna was happy to pick things back up nearly a year later. I can't count how many places we looked at, but Kalpa always scrutinized them with the same expert eye. Months into the search, she never pressured me to buy - in fact, she convinced me NOT to buy a house that I was enthusiastic about. I could count on her to give me an objective, unvarnished assessment (good or bad) of the houses we visited. She earned my trust through her candor. I had full faith in her judgement and (spoiler alert) it panned out when we finally found my house. 2) Responsiveness and good counsel: I hesitate to write this, because I'm not sure I want Kalpna to get even more texts in the middle of the night ... but Kalpa will answer whatever question, concern, complaint, or request you may have, immediately, at any hour. I never fully tested this by calling her at 3 a.m., but she was truly available 24/7. And that didn't end when we closed on the house - for months afterward, she gave me invaluable recommendations and advice as I looked for contractors, renovated, and rented. 3) Local knowledge: Kalpa knows Raleigh - she had a strong, informed opinion on every neighborhood we visited. As far as I can tell, she's well tapped into the Raleigh real estate world. She had a heads-up on a number of properties before they were listed - including the house I ended up buying. 4) She got my house for substantially below the asking price (and I had no trouble renting it). To conclude, if you've read this far, you're probably a;readu convinced. Kalpna helped a total neophyte to home ownership go from a vague idea about a rental property to what has so far been a successful investment. She knows the town, she knows houses, and, most importantly, she will always give you advice that is well-informed, candid, and unbiased. PS I want to mention something else that illustrates her dedication. During our numerous home visits, Kalpa was reliably dressed much better than I was ... but that never stopped her from inspecting crawlspaces, pushing through bushes, tromping through muddy backyards, or investigating any number of other spaces that I really would not have wanted to touch.

    Kalpna Patel is a SUPERSTAR!!! On a professional level, I've never worked with anyone so organized, task oriented, mindful, thoughtful and proficient. Aside from all these qualities and more, Kalpna is also very friendly and always willing to have a good laugh where otherwise things can get very stressful. I'm so grateful to have worked with her!!!

    This is the 2nd time that Kalpna has helped me find a home. If I ever go for a 3rd home and she is still an agent I will be utilizing her services. She has been wonderful. She responds to my inquiries very quickly. Her expertise in this field is fantastic as well. She seems to be able to answer any questions I have. Thank you again Kalpna for helping me out.

    Kalpna was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was always super quick to answer our questions and always knew the answer. This is a person that loves her job and takes pride in her work and that made the process that much more enjoyable. This was our 2nd home so we had a pretty good idea of what was going to happen on the buying side, but the selling side was new to us. She made it so the process seemed almost seamless. I can't recommend Kalpna enough if you are looking to buy or sell your home. Give her a shot and you won't be disappointed.

    Kalpna was a delight to work with through the entire home buying process. She really listened to what I was looking for and where I wanted to be located. I had a tall order with my price range and inside the beltline location. Kalpna worked hard to find houses that met my criteria, even showing me some I would never have thought to look at. She was very thorough during the offer process with explaining what was needed and why. She also was a great ally during the inspection process because she spoke directly to the seller's agent with any concerns. This meant that issues were resolved quickly and satisfactorily. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for real estate inside the beltline because she knows the neighborhoods and the market incredibly well!

    Working with Kalpna was an absolute joy! From day one upon meeting with her, we knew that we wanted her to represent us. She was very professional, thorough with her presentation and made sure we understood her marketing and agency process. After learning what we wanted and was looking for in a home, she went right to work, providing us with listings, meeting with us to view homes, answering and researching information relevant to our inquiries. She was always available and that meant so.o. much to us. We trusted her completely throughout the selling and buying process. She keeps her word, you can trust that what she says she'll do, will get done and depend on her. Sometimes we felt a little guilty that we were leaning on her a little too much, but she assured us that we weren't; that it was her job and one that she loved to do and she displayed it throughout our working relationship. We felt a true partnership with her. We've sold and bought homes prior to Kalpna, and we can say without hesitation, that our experience in working with her is unmatched. We are so grateful for her and can't thank her enough for all she did for us along the way. With her expertise and guidance our home sold in one day. Again, a true professional and just 'simply the best'. We highly recommend her and will be as we learn of others seeking to buy or sell property.

    Kalpna assisted me in purchasing two investment properties and a new primary home in a 4 month period. In today's market, a buyer has to make decisions quickly, yielding quite a bit of anxiety. Obviously, I wanted confidence that there would be a good return on the investment properties and I had a very specific wish list for a new primary home. I was certain Kalpna would deem me the most difficult client ever, wanting to look at every possibility, and on occasion, revisiting the same home multiple times. Kalpna was an absolute dream to work with. She was very responsive throughout my search, from beginning to end. She was extremely thorough with due diligence, helping me navigate through many important issues I would have never considered. Her negotiating skills are exemplary and her knowledge of the market and the build of homes remarkable. Her organizational skills and ability to be in multiple places at once juggling multiple tasks all in an effort to ensure I found the right properties at the right price and a new place to call home are to be admired. To top it all, it's an absolute pleasure to be in her company - easy to talk with, open, professional, loves to laugh. It's obvious Kalpna loves what she does. Thanks for all of your help, Kalpna!

    All I can say is that Ms. Patel is the best of the best. I've had realtors several times over in my lifetime but never came across a perfect agent such as Ms. Patel. She is focused, dedicated and not afraid to give her opinion and allow you to make an educated decision along the way of your home buying process.

    When I reached out to Kalpna I had an almost impossible list of criteria. I explained that I needed someone who was well connected given the area and price point I was interested in. She didn't even blink, and began telling me about potential opportunities that might be a good fit. Kalpna took the time to make sure we considered all of the opportunities in the area, not just the immediate neighborhood we thought we were interested in. We ended up with what I call the "unicorn" of real estate deals. While she was accomplishing all of this she made me feel like I was her only client. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and would highly recommend Kalpna.

She is the consummate professional you can trust, with great communication skills, truly dedicated, and paid attention to every detail.

    Kalpna worked with me for about 6 months to find the home of my dreams. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and was even able to find the best loan for me. She's very persistent and treats you like her one and only client. She worked incredibly hard to find a home that met my needs. This was my first home purchase and I don't think I would have found such a great house without her. She's extremely detailed, patient and an absolute delight to work with. She went above and beyond my expectations. I would recommend her to anyone in the market and would not hesitate to use her again.

    We feel SO LUCKY we found Kalpna to be our realtor. My husband and I were first time home buyers. We knew absolutely nothing about houses and had no idea how to navigate this crazy Triangle market. Kalpna went above and beyond for us every single time. She told us what to watch out for with homes, what areas are best for our needs, and she was available 24/7 which is a MUST in this market. We trusted her completely, and she did not disappoint. You will not regret going with Kalpna. She is truly superb, and she will get you in the home that's perfect for you. Thank you, Kalpna!

    Kalpna was wonderful to work with. She worked for us from start to finish to sell our house at a price that we were happy with. She is knowledgeable about the market, and was willing to help in many ways, offering multiple open houses, among other things. She also worked hard in negotiating a fair deal in responding to the home inspection and other issues. Kalpna was an excellent choice for us to use in selling our home.

    I bought my first home with Kalpna back in 2016. Kalpna really knows her stuff and makes it fun. Its still stressful, but the kind of pleasant experience one should have when buying there first home. When it came time to buy my second house this year Kalpna was the first person I called. I forget... everything... all the time... When I would drop the ball, Kalpna was always there to catch it. Often times we don't even really know ourselves what we want in a property. She asks the right question and spends the right amount of time to get to know you and will help you figure out what property is right for you. Eventually she will come across THE ONE! If you are in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill Market, then you understand you don't have much time to make a decision. Literally less than a day from the property getting listed. After viewing the listing I would call Kaplna immediately and would have a viewing scheduled within the next couple of hours. We would look, if I fell in love with the property, then we would make an offer. That is only the beginning folks. There are going to be dozens of offers and most over the asking price. I always knew in my heart that I would win the earn the bid because of Kalpna's expertise. It was never about even making the biggest offer. On both my properties I won the bid and was NOT the highest offer. Kalpna is a super pro realtor and fun to work with.

    Kalpna was referred to me by a coworker who also recently purchased a first home. I was impressed by Kalpna's professionalism and knowledge. Purchasing your first home can be overwhelming whether due to lack of experience or limited amount of time to devote to house-shopping. Kalpna was not hesitant to point out shortcomings in houses that I otherwise would have had to learn the hard way. Very happy with the house. Thanks Kalpna!

    Kalpna Patel has renewed my faith in realtors. Kalpna provides detailed information and extensive education (particularly to those who are new to the home-buying process). She is attentive and readily picks up on what best suits her clients. Kalpna is aware of the market trends, and guides her clients accordingly. It is my observation that Kalpna gives every buyer the same degree of personal attention regardless of price point. Kalpna works quickly and tirelessly on behalf of her clients, using her experience and negotiating skills to place them in the best possible position for success. I highly recommend Kalpna Patel!

    Before i started working with Kalpna Patel my co-worker had just worked with her a few months prior and was always talking great things about her. So when my husband and i were ready to commit and start this journey we didn't think twice have her as our realtor. From the moment we met with her until the scheduled closing date she was phenomenal, kept in touch every day with updates and is very easy to get in touch with, she is available 24/7 it felt like. She made us feel as if we were the only costumers she was working with. She is very persistent and trustworthy. Our experience as first home buyers felt very easy and not stressful at all due to her knowledge and assistance. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor to work with!! She goes out of her way to get you what you need and want. YOU WILL NOT BE DISSATISFIED.

    It is difficult to put into words how professional, knowledgeable, dedicated and truly caring Kalpna is of her clients. It was nothing short of a pleasure to work with Kalpna throughout the shopping and purchasing of a new investment property this year. She gave me advice, pointed out details and asked questions I would never have known or thought to seek on my own. There was never a time she was not available, including weekends and late nights. During the purchasing period we ran into a couple of hurdles, none of which was in any way due to us but Kalpna was able to smoothly guide us through each problem that presented itself from the selling party. She was able to negotiate better terms and outcomes at each step of the process. After the purchase was completed Kalpna put me in touch with any type of handyman that I would need going forward. She was able to involve a wonderful legal team, financial team and general contractors as needed. In the end Kalpna went to Dream Living Realty and together they helped to fix several problems with the investment property that the selling party would not. Dream Living has also gone above and beyond their duties as a real estate company. Under absolutely no requirement or responsibility from them they helped me with closing costs, which again were not satisfied by the selling party, had their own handyman come to my property to fix several broken items caught on the inspection report and worked with the new HOA to ensure I had all the keys and cards I needed without incurring additional costs as was requested by them. I felt immediately that I was in good hands both with Kalpna and Dream Living Realty, anytime something negative happened I never felt panicked or worried as they both responded quickly and produced a solution. I would highly recommend Kalpna to anyone looking to purchase real estate. It was a pleasure to work with her and I truly look forward to working with her again hopefully several times in the future. I would be honored to be one of her references.

    The most important things you need to know about Kalpna are: * She loves her job and will work for YOU. I was confident Kalpna always had my best interests in mind when viewing homes, during negotiations, during inspections and due diligence, and at closing. She worked hard to make sure I had all of the information I needed to make a sound decision and feel comfortable in that decision. * Kalpna is very knowledgeable about real estate, the structural condition of homes, and the home buying/selling process. She'll tell you she's been through renovations of her own and her experience really shows when you are walking through homes and making sure it's a good investment for you. She doesn't just passively walk through a home with you, she is actively engaged through every step and points out things you may never spot or think to look for. * Lastly, Kalpna is a real pleasure to work with. She takes time to understand you and will never pressure you in any way. I will recommend Kalpna to everyone I meet interested in buying/selling a home.

    We were first time home buyers, new to the area, and had no idea where to start looking or even the process to buy a house. Kalpna helped us through every step and was ready on almost a minutes notice to show any house that we were interested in, any day of the week and weekends. She was very patient and professional, but at the same time guided us like we were family. She went above and beyond and helped us from finding a lender to recommending painters and handymen for new home. We would highly recommend Kalpna, especially to first time home buyers.

    Having worked in the mortgage industry for over 25 years, I came to know many real estate agents. We happened to meet Kalpna Patel by chance, a very lucky chance for us. Her professionalism was apparent from the start and even though we weren't ready to buy at the time, she stayed in touch without being 'pushy'. Once we were ready to go forward, her attention to detail helped us narrow down the areas to look at and the type of home to proceed with. She kept us update completely, by phone, email and text as our journey proceeded. She also referred us to an extremely professional mortgage originator, Keith Ennis of Movement Mortgage. Keith and his team, including Deana Perillo, made this relocation so much easier. They communicated easily with both us and Kalpna, truly a team effort. I could go on and on about the professionalism of Kalpna and the people she works with but please give her a try and find out for yourself. Moving of any kind is hard enough, do yourself a favor and work an experienced, dedicated professional. Gail & Don Thomas

    Five stars is not enough of a rating for Mrs. Kalpna's service. Not only was she a great realtor she became a great friend. She is passionate about her job, well knowledged in this field and professional is a understatement. She is the definition of a patient, genuine and caring realtor. She made it her business to attend every meeting, scheduled views at short notice and demanded the negotiation floor when it was time. Thank you so much Mrs. Kalpna for assisting us on the purchase of our new home. With your advice and expertise it was all possible.

    We highly recommend Kalpna Patel as a buying and listing agent. Kalpna has gone above and beyond to advocate for us in so many situations. As different obstacles present, she is wonderful at problem solving and resolves the issues with grace, professionalism and integrity. She is organized and timely. I have not once had to worry about missing deadlines or details. Overall , she works so hard for her clients and geniunely cares about her clients and their wellbeing. She will not go to sleep until she has completed the work she needs to do and that makes this process so much easier for us.

    Kalpna is a fantastic realtor who was on our side, and motivated to make us happy. We used her services to buy a new (old) house, and to sell our old house, as well. Throughout the process, she was top notch: detail-oriented, very knowledgeable, a great negotiator, a hard worker, responsive, trustworthy, friendly, and down-to-earth. She also has a great team of people she works with and recommends. We are thrilled with Kalpna!

    Very happy / satisfied with our experience! As first time home owners we weren't sure what to expect. Kalpna was sure to explain and walk us through each step all while assuring us and working around our schedules. She was available almost immediately each time we needed anything from her. She makes you feel like you are her only client and her top priority. She is very informed and experienced in this field and knows how to get you what you want. She made this stressful process feel very smooth and dare I say easy! Our journey with Kalpna wasn't long because we found exactly what we were looking for soon after we started our search. She was professional, reliable and dedicated all the way to our closing date and has even kept in touch afterwards. I would use her again and would definitely recommend her for your home search.

    My time working with Kalpna was brief- but only because she helped me find the perfect house so quickly! Once the offer process started with the sellers, she was there every step of the way to guide me through the jumps and hurdles of home buying. I felt completely at ease every step of the way and not once was I overwhelmed. It felt as if I had a personal assistant managing my schedule, organizing calls and providing recommendations all at the same time, all working around my busy work schedule. While I have no previous experience to compare against, based on this process I would say there are not enough stars on this review worksheet to describe how smoothly the process went. I fully and completely recommend Kalpna for any real estate needs.

    Kalpna was terrific helping us with our recent purchase of a home in Cary. Kalpna used her prior expertise in home inspections to assist us in thoroughly assessing the viability of several properties including the one we settled on purchasing. She was very proficient in all aspects of the real estate transaction process. During the offer/counter-offer process, she made a recommendation that saved us several thousand dollars. We are very pleased and would highly recommend her to potential buyers or sellers. Signed, Jim and Martha Applewhite

    As a first-time homebuyer, I couldn't've asked for a better agent. Kalpna far exceeded my expectations, from late nights devoted to scouring the market for the perfect property (she took care to send listings that were exactly what I wanted - and I'm picky!) to meeting me on a whim to view a house just an hour after it listed. And she managed to negotiate an impossible price. She has uncanny knowledge of location, materials, market value. She's prompt and professional and has been helpful in so many ways, even sacrificing her personal time to help in this endeavor. I have friends who work in Real Estate and I'd rather work with Kalpna, hands down. Can't wait to work with her on my next property!

    Kalpna's service was truly amazing! She helped guide me through every step of the process with the utmost attention to detail and keen thoroughness. She is dedicated and passionate about doing what is best for her clients and does this with grace and professionalism that is often hard to find. She goes above and beyond what her responsibilities are and that is because she cares. Kalpna Patel is clearly a leading expert in the Raleigh Real Estate Industry and those who partner with her will learn that first hand, very quickly. Cheers!
