  3. Contracts and agreements

    23 years

I'm a licensed attorney with 15 years of experience in everything ranging from commercial litigation, to estate planning, to real estate matters. 


Today my focus is on real estate transactions - handling everything from the $35,000 REO purchase, to the sale of million dollar homes, to the purchase and sale of commercial properties well in excess of a million dollars.  I always take my clients needs and expectations into consideration and strive to respond quickly to them and get them the answers they want.  A real estate transaction, at any level, is ridden with potential pitfalls.  I am committed to educating my clients on these pitfalls and the protections they need in place, and to making the transaction as smooth as possible.

A real estate attorney who truly knows real estate law and is wonderful to work with.
Kelly was so professional and knowledgeable. She represented me during a fairly stressful For Sale by Owner transaction. I was the owner. She always got back to me in a timely fashion. She is terrific!

Excellent work!
Ms. Anderson assisted me with a local real estate sale and closing while I was out-of-town. She was very professional, responsive and an excellent negotiator. She was also able to procure a land surveyor at a favorable cost.

A very professional real estate attorney!
Kelly represented our family in a commercial real estate sale. She was very knowledgable, and handled all parties involved with diplomacy, professionalism and honesty. She is definitely someone who I would recommend to all.

Review of Kelly Anderson
I have referred many clients to Kelly Anderson and will continue to do so in the future. Not only is she expert in the law, but her professionalism is what makes her special. She is an effective communicator and responsive to time sensitive contract requirements. I have only had good feedback from my clients that have been represented by Kelly in a real estate closing.

The only Attorney for House Moves we ever use
We have used Kelly on multiple house purchases and find her to be the most responsive attorney we have dealt with. She turns around paperwork fast, speaks in plain language, is friendly and has a great sense of humor and is just a pleasure to deal with. It doesn't hurt that she also charges a great rate! I wouldn't use anybody else.

I highly recommend her."

Real estate Attorney | Jun 04
Relationship: Co-worker
"As one of Kelly's colleagues I have observed firsthand how she goes about handing her real estate transactions and always come away impressed. The purchase or sale of a home is usually one of the largest transactions a person, or business, undertakes and Kelly handles these matters, both professionally and personally, in recognition of this fact. From the legal side, Kelly knows the ins and outs of each transaction she handles so all of the legal issues which accompany a real estate transaction are handled in an expert manner. It is, however, the personal touch, which separates Kelly from other real estate attorneys. Understanding the nature of a real estate transaction, Kelly does all she can to ease her client's stress and anxiety regarding the transaction, which always helps things run smoothly. I cannot endorse Kelly highly enough."
