I was referred to Kirby through a friend after my initial realtor was a combination of unresponsive, unprofessional, and almost uninterested in putting in the effort to help me purchase my first home in the Athens, GA area.

Kirby was honest, professional, attentive, helpful, knowledgeable, and he genuinely cared about finding the perfect home for me at the right price (he is an excellent negotiator and got me a GREAT deal). He went the extra mile every single day until closing, even with an unexpected and very uncommon bump in the road that we encountered regarding flood zones. Even on the day of closing, Kirby went the extra mile to make sure that the home I was purchasing was cleaned and ready for move-in before I signed on the dotted lines.

Without Kirby’s help I am absolutely sure that I would not be a happy homeowner today and I would recommend him to anybody who is looking to purchase or sell in Georgia. He is honest and respectable and genuinely cares about his clients.



First time buyer

Kirby is a wonderful agent. He really knows the area well and has a great relationship with many of the builders in the area. He can drive through most neighborhoods and tell you the history, who built each house, and the quality of the construction.
Kirby was also super responsive and was great about touching base and getting back to my wife and I on all of our crazy requests.
He’s a great guy and I’d highly recommend him to anyone shopping in Oconee Co. or the surrounding area.

I was under a great deal of pressure to relocate from a house in Atlanta to Athens in a very limited time frame. Kirby made himself available at my convenience and prepared several houses for me to consider. He understood what I was looking for and maximized the time available to provide options. He was very helpful in the bidding process and ultimately had to move very quickly to find a great value home for me. I was very impressed with his knowledge of the market and his willingness to go the extra mile to make sure that I was satisfied

Kirby Kilgore represents one of the most personable, knowledgeable, and professional realtors with whom I’ve ever worked. Not only is Kirby intimately familiar with the area and is able to provide candid direction to suit his clients housing requirements, he genuinely cares about finding the perfect house for each situation.

I would not hesitate to recommend Kirby.

Kirby responded quickly and honestly to all of our questions throughout the process. We had only 1 weekend to find a house and he did a great job lining up several beautiful places. He also helped us quickly secure our new home. We were very impressed with him and would recommend him to anyone!

My wife and I worked closely with Charles and Kirby Kilgore over the process of finding the perfect lot and building our home. We could not be happier with Charles and Kirby – they were both extremely knowledgeable and attentive, and they helped make the entire process easy and enjoyable. We are very thankful for their attentiveness and communication – there are so many decisions to make and timelines to keep in mind when building a home, and they were always available to answer questions, and very prompt when something was needed. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone, and we trust them implicitly. Thanks for a great experience, Charles and Kirby!

Selling existing home and Custom Building a new home

Being a first-time home buyer who was new to the area (moving from the Midwest), my family and I feel very fortunate to have been referred to Kirby by my colleagues at UGA.

One of the most impressive things about Kirby is that he took the time to educate us on the process, rather than just sell us a house.

Importantly, as we went through the home buying process, Kirby truly kept my families interests in mind – by taking a keen interest in understanding what was important (and unimportant) to us. As such, he directed us to neighborhoods that fit our needs and kept us up to date with listings in those neighborhoods in real time.

Kirby ended up helping us find, negotiate on, and ultimately close on a home that we plan to raise our kids in. We couldn’t be more grateful for his services.

First time buyer

I have used Kirby as my buying agent for 2 home purchases in the Athens-Clarke County market. In both cases his local knowledge was a significant addition to the available listing and sales data that every other agent has, and it allowed us to 1) locate a desirable property quickly, and 2) negotiate a final price that was truly based on market conditions/seller’s motivation at THAT TIME, – not 1, 2, or 6 months prior. He is proactive and easy to work with, blending professional knowledge & ethics, with a great interpersonal style, a sense of humor, and a practical view of what needs to happen to get to closing.

New Home

“I recommend that if you have the chance to work with Kirby Kilgore as your realtor – do it! He was wonderful through our entire process of buying a newly constructed home. He is enjoyable to work with in addition to being extremely knowledgeable from everything including the nuts and bolts of a home, the aesthetics, the community, the banking and legal things, and the land itself. Kirby works hard to help you buy a home that fits your needs, and he is honest and thorough in giving advice and direction. I love our new home, but would absolutely use Kirby in the future if we need to sell/buy/move again.”


I love our new home!
