Kelli and Vanita from Dothan Real Estate Team were invaluable in getting my house sold. They were very organized and went above and beyond to help me. This was particularly helpful for me because I moved to another state about five months into the process and could not have done it without their expert help and support. I highly recommend them for your real estate needs.

We recently sold our home we had lived in for 33 years....It was with the greatest confidence we chose Vanita and Kelli to walk us through this process. The knowledge and expertise of this Real Estate Team was very impressive. We never had a question or doubts that they could not answer,which help to relieve some of the anxious moments we had during the selling of our home. I love the sweet and caring spirit that Vanita and Kelli embrace with all of their business relationships. The widespread advertising area that allow people to view our home was just enormous----so many people from other areas was able to see our home—just great exposure!! I would highly recommend this Real Estate Team for your Real Estate need.

 GREAT TEAM!!!!!GREAT SALES!!!!!

 Dothan Real Estate Team was a joy to work with through the entire process of selling our home. Vanita and Kelli shared with us great wisdom and tips from their years of experience and they guided us smoothly through each step of the transaction. We appreciate the confidence they gave us, that we were well taken care of, from before listing day until after closing day. We highly recommend Dothan Real Estate Team!

We had the pleasure of working with Kelly and Vanita in 2011 when we moved to Dothan. We planned to rent for a year and purchase a home once we were settled. Despite the fact that we weren't ready to buy, Kelly spent half a day driving us around Dothan to introduce us to our new community. Her kindness earned the company "Customers For Life" because when we were ready to purchase we immediately called The Dothan Real Estate Team. Later, when we were ready to sell that home, they listed the property which sold in a short time. We recommend the Team for their professionalism, their community support, and their terrific energy and positive attitude.

                                                                                                                      

Mike & Joan Langford

Our experience with Kelli Dillard and Dothan Real Estate Team has been most rewarding. After the death of my brother I was faced with the unexpected task of having to sell his home. I called Kelli and she assured me that everything was going to be ok and she would help me do whatever it took to get the house sold. During this process Kelli and the whole Dothan Real Estate Team treated us with love, respect and compassion. When Mike and I decided to make a change in our lives and move to Dothan we naturally turned to Kelly again. She listened to us and guided us in the right direction and found the perfect home for us. We will forever be grateful to Dothan Real Estate Team for all they have done for us.

                                                                                                                      

Betsy & Art Saliba

If you were working up here in Birmingham we would highly recommend you. All our friends in Dothan know how pleased we were with you when you sold our house.

Last year, Dothan Real Estate Team handled the sale of my childhood home in Dothan, Alabama. This was a smooth process and a great working relationship. Vanita and Kelly promptly met with me and gave me ideas for helping in the sell of the home. They maintained contact with me through the entire process by telephone and email. They notified me whenever anything came up that I needed to know about. They were kind, encouraging, easy to work with, and gave helpful advice. They established a great working relationship with this customer. 

Once we had a buyer, they handled meetings, paperwork, incidentals, and more, making less work for me. They were there with me right down to the closing. They were great!! I would highly recommend this group, this team, this agency to handle any real estate needs you might have! 

                                                                                                                      

Scott and Candice Clemmons

We have worked with Dothan Real Estate Team since 2011. This has included two home purchases, one home sell, property management for a rental, and a couple of times we thought about selling and buying but chose not to. We cannot be happier with the service they’ve provided. Our primary point of contact has been Kelli. Her expertise, professionalism, and availability has far surpassed our expectations. When she’s unavailable due to being with another client or taking a well-deserved vacation, Vanita is right there to back her up. It seems all of our transactions have been under pretty irregular circumstances. Our first purchase was a major fixer upper. We learned that mortgage companies despise this and are very difficult to work with. Our second purchase was frustrating as well. We were under contract, but the bank announced that they were going to foreclose (which voided our contract). They ended up changing it to a short sale, but declined our offer. Fortunately, weeks later, they accepted our offer after several other contracts fell through. As a result, we fell under time pressure to sell our house. Kelli’s expertise and commitment provided us with comfort and confidence every step of the way.  Additionally, she provided us with all of the information that we needed to decide whether to sell or rent out a house that’s been in the family for generations. We decided to rent, and have been very pleased working with Sabrina. Their teamwork, combined experience, and personal dedication to your real estate needs undoubtedly makes Dothan Real Estate Team the best in the Wiregrass. 

                                                                                                                      

Ashley Carnes

I had an amazing experience working with Vanita and Kelly and the Dothan Real Estate team. Vanita showed me whatever I wanted to see and her schedule was so flexible to work with mine. Once I decided on the house everything was so streamlined and quick. They made the whole experience as simple and fun as possible. As a first time home buyer I would recommend them to anyone. They made sure I knew all the ins and outs and made sure I had all the information I needed to buy the house. Overall such a great experience! I love my house and am so grateful they were there to help me all along the way!

Matt & Libby Clark

Vanita & Kelli,

Just wanted to drop a note and tell you how much we enjoyed our House Warming! So many people have commented on how nice it was.

It was wonderful to have the two of you here to celebrate the end of "Find Someone to Buy Our House" – the adventure…

Thanks for everything!

Matt & Libby

                                                                                                                                             

Ernie & Virgina Williams

We were fortunate to have Kelli, Vanita, and the entire Dothan Real Estate Team help us sell our home last fall. At first, we were in no hurry to sell, but as the lure of our newest out-of-state grandchild continued to draw us in, we began to panic – but Kelli and Vanita kept us sane and constantly updated regarding the market and comps.

From helping us ‘stage’ our home, which we had to continue living in, to evaluating offers and projects to add value (or not, in some cases), we relied tremendously on them and they always came through for us. In the stress of selling in Dothan and buying in Georgia, closing both in the same day, their professionalism and perspective and sense of humor helped us survive intact. They are a great team and we highly recommend them for your sale or purchase of a home in their market.


Clay & Allison Williams

In the spring of 2015, we were kicking around the idea of putting our house on the market and looking to move as we were needing more space. Kelli and Vanita @ the Dothan Real Estate Team made that decision really easy for us to make. Not only did they make the listing / showing process easy, they were able to secure contracts on my home within the 1st week. Needless to say, throughout the entire process, they made sure to make us feel informed and gave us the confidence that we were in good hands. We were so pleased with our experience that we referred our neighbors across the street…. Kelli and Vanita sold their home the very next month!


Amy & Adam DeShazo

We love Dothan Real Estate Team! Our entire experience could not have been better. With Kelli’s pictures, the virtual tour and the many websites used, our home had a lot of exposure in a short amount of time; which we were able to track with Dothan Real Estate Team’s online marketing report. We had several showings a week with an accepted offer in 5 weeks and a fast closing 3 short weeks later. We have a great relationship with Kelli and Vanita and we loved the undivided attention we received whenever we needed anything! Thank you Dothan Real Estate Team!



Jason & Amber Langford

Blessings galore! I will not lie, our home selling experience was not a “common” sale by no means. But, it can happen! After deciding to sell our home in the small town of Hartford, Alabama, the search for the perfect realtor was on. The old saying is true…word of mouth is the best form of advertisement! After hearing of our search for a realtor, several of our trusted friends recommended The Dothan Real Estate Team. So, we gave them a call. Throughout our entire experience, we dealt directly with Kelli Dillard & Vanita Sansom. Whether it be in person, via email, text, or mail, they were always available (even over the holidays) and extremely knowledgable in their profession. My best description for Kelli & Vanita would have to be: POWERHOUSE! Like I said, our sale was not traditional. We listed our home with Kelli and one month later, we were sitting at the closing table! It was simply a product of God’s grace, perfect timing, and a passionate, trustworthy real estate agent. Our appreciation for Kelli, Vanita, and the rest of the Dothan Real Estate Team staff is neverending. They are forever friends and we are eternally grateful for their kindness, honesty and professionalism. Looking forward to working with you all in the future.


Brian & Jessica Deck

The Dothan Real Estate Team worked very hard for us to sell our house. Their strategy for marketing the home and making it attractive to the right buyer is what made us successful. We were kept informed with prompt and frequent updates as needed. We are very thankful for their hard work!

 



Brooke & Andrew 

It is a really nice house! We really appreciate your help… the second round of our home buying experience here in Dothan was much more pleasant thanks to you and Aubrey!


Bence & Megan Carter

After having lived in Birmingham for the last 12 years, we just recently relocated to the Wiregrass area. We knew that having a great realtor was going to be essential in the search for our new home in Dothan. We needed someone who was going to be honest, proactive, and patient. Kelli was referred to us from an acquaintance and once we met her, we knew that she fit the bill. Our search was not the easiest as we had a very specific list of “must-haves” and there were not many on the market that checked all the boxes. With that said, our search criteria expanded and some of the must haves became less important. Once it was all said and done we probably looked at about 25 houses with multiple showings on quite a few of them. She had a smile on her face at every showing and that meant a lot to us. Obviously an agent has to walk a fine line when giving opinions/suggestions so as not to influence a client’s decision too heavily. Kelli was very professional in this aspect with us. Thankfully though, when we needed straightforward, honest feedback, she was right there and didn’t hesitate to answer. She wanted the best for us and she definitely helped us get there. I admit, we were never planning on this being our forever home but we can confidently tell everyone that Kelli and The Dothan Real Estate Team will be who we call when we are ready to sell and find the next one!


Ken & Brooke Farmer

We recently sold our house with The Dothan Real Estate Team and had a wonderful experience. In the past we had tried to sale it by owner and realized that we couldn’t give the house the exposure it needed without the help of an experienced real estate agent. We chose to go with The Dothan Real Estate Team of Kelly & Vanita based on recommendations from several friends. From our first meeting, we had a great feeling about our decision. Kelly & Vanita gave us some great tips to get our house ready to put on the market. They gave our house the exposure and marketing it needed in order to sale. They were always easy to get in touch with and had answers for us. Once the call came that we had an offer to the day we closed on the house, it was a very smooth process. We would recommend The Dothan Real Estate Team to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home in our area.


David & Jessica Waters

Moving back to the U.S. after another three years of military service in a foreign country is a continuous adjustment for a family of seven, but Dothan has always felt like home. It only made sense that we stay when it came time for David to retire and our children to begin having their own families. We had purchased a house before leaving for our last overseas assignment and in returning to it found that we simply needed more space. With some reluctance, we listed with a local realtor that we weren’t real familiar with and got little results over a long period of time. After talking with a number of friends and even realtors both here and in the Enterprise area, we came across several people who recommended Vanita and Kelli, then a team with Remax. We decided it was time to meet these ladies so we made an appointment and a new relationship was forged. Now, here we are, six years and five real estate transactions later, and David and I could not be more excited for their company and all the great service they have provided us. Their communication habits, thorough advertising/marketing plans, and people skills make them some of the best in the business. They’re supportive and encouraging and just plain smart about what they do. They listen and work with an enthusiasm that is so rare these days. We absolutely would not buy or sell a home with anyone else in South Alabama. We look forward to growing old in the Wiregrass with great friends and business partners like Dothan Real Estate Team.


Ben & Mary Roedl

It is difficult to put into words how much we appreciate Kelli and Vanita and all they have done for our family. When we made the decision to sell our first home and “upgrade” to a new one it was a scary thought but they were both there to ease our fears along with way. They made the process painless and with every obstacle encountered they knocked it down. Kelli and Vanita really took the time to get to know us, our children and the needs of our family. And in the end we sold our house and found our forever home. We can never thank them enough for everything they have done for us!!!



Cheryl Harvey

IT IS OFFICIAL! Thanks to the amazing Dothan Real Estate Team, I no longer own property in Alabama. Hallelujah! I am finally free of that heavy burden. Last December, thanks to their efforts of selling Mama’s house, I was able to purchase a home here in Greenville. For as long as I live, I will be grateful to these two beautiful ladies (Vanita & Kelli) for helping to make this happen. My roots are NOW planted firmly here in Greenville with my family. Today is a day of new beginnings for me and for my family. Praise God for His goodness and the wonderful people that He puts in our lives! I could not have done this without you. . . Thank you!!!


Kristen & Eric Brown

Dothan Real Estate Team’s Vanita and Kelli are phenomenal agents!! They know the market and the area really well. They developed an excellent marketing strategy and kept us in the loop throughout the entire process. You can trust them. They are pros! Whenever we had questions, they were quick to get back to us. They fought for us! Our home sold sooner than we expected. We were so glad that we chose the Dothan Real Estate Team and highly recommend them for any real estate needs.


Jamey Vibbert

Kelli, You and your company are successful because you do go the extra mile and make your clients/prospects always feel good about the process.. Good luck with everything.


Bobby Craddock

Thank you for the great customer service. Although my house hasn’t yet sold, I think that all bases have been covered by your efforts.


Jack & Brenda Ware

After deciding to sell our home of 34 years and move closer to our children in Tennessee, we contacted Vanita Sansom, of Dothan Real Estate Team, whom we had known for many years prior to her becoming a real estate agent. She brought her partner, Kelli Dillard, to our first meeting and we were very impressed with the team concept they presented, their professional business practices, and their energetic work ethic.

Our emotional heartstrings were strongly attached to this home, and Vanita and Kelli helped us maintain an objective attitude about turning loose. Their suggestions and insights for marketing our house were much appreciated and proved to be right on target. Without reservations we would happily recommend the Dothan Real Estate Team to anyone.


Jonathan Dean

As a first time home buyer, I was nervous about becoming a homeowner, as it can be very tricky and risky if done wrong. Luckily I was recommended Ms. Kelli Dillard by one of my coworkers. The Dothan Real Estate Team was extremely polite, caring and professional; they asked me several questions about what kind of home I was looking for and gave me an excellent selection of homes to look at in the area I wanted to live in that were inside of my price range. As we looked at these homes, Ms. Dillard did not pressure me or try to sell me on a house that I did not want, and was able to fully answer every one of my questions (And I had many!). I would highly, HIGHLY recommend the Dothan Real Estate Team to anyone in the Dothan area that needs to buy or sell a home.


Julia Hunter 

Vanita and Kelli are the best! My husband and I recently retired and moved to north Georgia, so we needed to sell our home in Ashford. Vanita met with us in our home and took the time to understand our needs and preferences, which meant a great deal to us. She was honest with us and explained that our house might be difficult to sell, given its size and location, but that she and Kelli would put the expertise to work for us. They ran advertisements, staged open houses, and kept a positive attitude and spirit of open communication throughout the process. Their hard work paid off, as they identified a buyer and helped us close the sale a few months ago. This team is on top of the Wiregrass real estate market. They are knowledgeable about local market trends and kept us informed throughout the entire sale process. We would recommend this team to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home. Working with them was a true pleasure.

Jason M. Schmidt

Vanita is the one of the most patient people I know. She listens, gracefully tolerates all of my questions and truly cares about her clients. What’s nice is we are much more than clients to The Dothan Real Estate Team, we are friends. The relationship does not stop at closing. Vanita made our home buying experience a fun adventure. Our family sincerely thanks you for all your help and your continued friendship! You are all such a blessing! Thank you so much!
