Kelly is a true go-getter!
Always aiming for self improvement and life learning, she is driven and isn’t afraid of working hard to achieve success.
From a very early age Kelly began working in her father’s restaurants, and spent the next 10 years in the service and hospitality industries. She knew she loved meeting new people and building relationships, so she decided to push for a career that would enable her to develop those networking skills, while upholding a commitment to customer satisfaction. Real-estate just fit the bill! 5 years ago, she obtained her real-estate license and it has been full steam ahead since then!
Being born and raised in Edmonton, she has had 30 years to explore and fall in love with this beautiful city and its surrounding areas. Acting with respect and integrity, Kelly is determined to help both buyers and sellers navigate through the stressful processes of moving so that they can experience all that this city has to offer.
Beyond real-estate, Kelly has a passion for snowboarding, travelling, and spending time with family and friends. She is also quite the do-it-yourselfer and enjoys filling her house with home-made decor!
I go back many years….
Born and raised on a small farm in Northeastern Alberta, I learned values such as hard work and respect for others naturally ... you just lived that way!!
Upon graduation from high school, I moved to the big city of Edmonton, where I attended the U of A and received my B.Ed. and thereafter taught elementary and junior school or 6 years. I always loved teaching and the “exuberance of youth”. I seemed to enjoy the free spirited kid the most!
After those 6 years, I had a desire to try the business world and became a representative for major consumer electronics manufacturers’. Changing economic times lead me to become a residential real estate appraiser and then to the last 9 ½ years with RE/MAX Real Estate.
These years have been very fulfilling in helping first time and experienced buyers navigate through buying or selling a home. Fondly hearing a first time buyer refer to you as “Pops”, only comes in the way of a compliment when you build a relationship based on trust and integrity. On many occasions, that streak of grey hair that I have acquired, gives that experienced older buyer a feeling of my credibility in the industry. I enjoy working with people of all ages and love developing relationships with all my clients and some may even say, “I talk too much”. In the end, I take great pride in giving my clients honest advice and gaining their trust as a person that has their best interest at heart.
I am married and my wife of over 40 years and my two sons have always been very active. Whether it was skiing, running, cycling hiking…. From the time our boys were 4 years old until they left school, I was busy as a director of the community hockey league, driving to freestyle ski competitions, watching them slashing at other lacrosse players or just watching their sporting events with a “Timmies “in my hand. (Never did win a major prize in “Roll up the Rim”)
Life is Good !!!!
