She is blessed with an energetic, hardworking spirit that reassures buyers and sellers that they will receive the excellent service they expect and deserve.

Kelly is an excellent negotiator, has a keen ability to match buyers with the perfect home and is equally proficient in advising sellers how to prepare their homes to garner the best price. She considers representing her clients in the purchase or sale of a home a tremendous honor – and a serious responsibility.

Prior to her success in real estate, Kelly worked in the title business, an ideal springboard for real estate. Her background also includes international work experience in London and Korea, where she developed written and verbal skills in Korean, and Hawaii, where she worked for a major cruise line. She asserts that her experiences living – and moving – overseas give her a special affinity for and expertise in assisting relocation clients.

A native Texan, Kelly hails from Quitman, a small town in East Texas. She attended Texas A & M University in Commerce, Texas. Her love for sales developed early and she learned from watching her father and grandfather, who worked many years for the Ford Motor Company, that the customer is always right. Kelly is very active in her community and is an active volunteer for the CASA for Children of Montgomery County and an advocate for the Montgomery County Animal Shelter. Her leisure time is spent with her husband and three children, and she enjoys tennis, golf and playing the piano.

When questioned about the future of residential real estate in Houston, Kelly emphatically states, "In Houston's dynamic economy people are enjoying wealth and stability from making sound real estate investments."
