Real Estate Broker

Hi....I'm Kate Kelly, and welcome to my website! Real estate is in my blood. That’s the answer I always give when people ask me why I went into real estate. My grandfather was a commercial developer, and my parents did several renovations throughout the years. My mother was also a highly respected broker and my grandmother owned and operated our family company (Kelly Real Estate☘️) for pretty much my entire life. She also managed her own multi-family residential building, which I now manage. So I grew up learning all the ins-and-outs of the industry. Looking back, I’m incredibly impressed at the way the brokers in my family always put their clients FIRST. And, I have no doubt that was the secret to their success. So in my real estate journey that is exactly the same path I am following. You come first…You are my most important consideration…YOUR happiness and success is MY happiness and success. I truly care about my clients and their needs, and will go above and beyond to ensure you get the best price for your important investment. I hope to create an exceptional real estate experience for you and in the process carry on my family's exceptional legacy of service. While it’s true that buying or selling in today’s real estate market can be a complex and high-stress endeavor, I am here to help you navigate through it all.
