REALTOR® - BRE# 02014877
I have lived all over the country and there is nowhere that tops the Central Coast of California. I grew up in Denver, went to college in Boston, got a law degree at UCLA and raised my 3 kids in East Hampton, NY, where I also had a successful real estate career. When I discovered the Central Coast, I knew I had found my home.
Once I had settled here I chose to work at The Avenue because of our strong commitment to honesty and integrity and because the brokers so clearly enjoy each other and enjoy what we do. Collaboration is key at The Avenue and we all benefit tremendously from each other’s experience. We also have a lot of fun!
I love selling real estate on the Central Coast because of the wide variety of properties. One day I might be showing ranches in North County and the next, beachfront in Shell Beach or condos in Grover or family homes in SLO. Every real estate deal is unique and I love the challenge of crafting a deal where both parties walk away smiling.
When I’m not working, I am hanging out with family and friends and enjoying all the area has to offer. I consider myself so lucky to start each day with either a hike up South HIlls or a walk on the beach in Avila always accompanied by my beloved Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, Mighty.
“Kellye helped us find our forever home. We were out-of-town buyers, relocating to the Central Coast; she worked patiently with us for 5 months. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit one week after we went into escrow, it looked like we might have to give up the new house, but Kellye expertly navigated us through uncharted waters, working through some tricky issues. We unreservedly and wholeheartedly recommend Kellye to buyers or sellers in this area. Her expertise, responsiveness, and genuine concern for our needs were all we could have asked for. She is the consummate professional.” – Vicki L
“We were lucky to find Kellye for our SLO real estate exploration. We have a home in Sonoma and were looking for an additional home along the central coast. Right away we were impressed about how proactive and responsive to our needs she was. Kellye got to know us and what we wanted, and was expert in identifying properties that fit our parameters. This really saves a lot of time and energy when you have an agent that can sort through everything on the market and deliver the ones that are tailored to our desires and complete in their specifications. Kellye really knows the market! Kellye was targeted, persistent, and realistic in her search. We were also really impressed that she would roll up her sleeves and do some real research if it helped us review a property or make a decision. Another of Kellye’s true strengths is during the time of negotiations for a property. She is quick to identify potential issues, negotiates thoughtfully and respectfully, and has measured ways to de-escalate problems that may arise. Her good negotiation skills always kept us calm, comfortable and well-informed. She was very detailed during the entire closing process, and kept in touch at every step. Just the right amount and timing in her communications. She also helped us find some amazing local resources to have work done on the house. Kellye has a great network of repair and restoration professionals! Buying a house can always be a little stressful, and Kellye’s sense of humor and expertise always got us through! Thanks Kellye!” – Daniel K
“Kellye is a very knowledgeable real estate agent and also has law degree that’s also very compatible with this profession . Kellye represented both the buyer and seller in my transaction . This escrow was during the COVID- 19 lockdown, so it was not a typical transaction, there were many hurdles and Kellye handled them as the professional she is . I have had many real estate transactions over the years and this was the most unusual escrow of all and I always felt Kellye was in total control . I would not hesitate to use Kellye’s services in the future and would recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent.” – Roger O
“Kellye is professional, knowledgeable, friendly, responsive, and unbelievably helpful with the overall home buying process. I especially appreciated her legal background when reviewing contracts and during the negotiating process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking in the San Luis Obispo area. We could not have been happier with her help and guidance.” – Michael C
“I have nothing but nice things to say about Kellye. My wife and I came into this process as complete novices, first-time buyers thrust into the competitive California central coast housing market… and we had 75 days to find a house – or if not, the two of us (and our cat) would be homeless (long story, but true). So those were the conditions with which we went into this process. Kellye was understanding, knowledgable, and more than willing to take the time to help us. Never pandering, never pushy in the slightest. Always professional. She was on our side, in the sense that she was an advocate, not a salesperson. She’s a lawyer herself, so that’s a plus in negotiations. And we got out house!There were the twists and turns you can expect in this market (offers that don’t get accepted since other full-cash offers come in from LA investors, grrr… ). But I can truly say that we were lucky enough to get the house we wanted, and maybe that was because we were lucky enough to have Kellye. Because of all the house we saw, I think we got the one that was the best for us in the end. We’re really, really happy in our new home.
So thanks, Kellye, and for anyone out there looking for a professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy real estate agent. Don’t think twice about signing up with Kellye.” – Scott F
“Kellye helped find the perfect home for me. Kellye is professional and at the same time also very personal. She has a great understanding of the changing real estate market. I felt that Kellye really listened and understood what I was looking for and was able to find and show me properties exactly within that scope. She always answered all of my questions – big or small – when I left messages she would get back to me right away. I am now getting ready to sell a piece of property and without any hesitation will have Kellye be my agent again” – Elisabeth G
“Kellye was very helpful and patient throughout the house-hunting process. Unlike some realtors, she caught on quickly to what my wife and I were looking for. She didn’t waste our time pushing listings that would not be a fit for us, and because of that, we trusted those she did send our way. We were buyers from out of town, so it was extremely helpful having someone on the ground there that we could rely on to check out properties on our behalf, and providing good feedback, before making the trip to see it ourselves. Also easy to communicate with and very responsive, which is key to closing a good deal fast! Would highly recommend!” – Matt F
