Kelle Hill grew up in Ft. Worth, Texas in a family of inveterate house hunters…the thrill of the chase, the excitement of making a deal, and the fun of moving and decorating.
After graduating from the University of Texas with a major in journalism, Kelle’s first job was working as Press Secretary to Mrs. Lloyd Bentsen in her husband’s Senate campaign. After his election, Kelle went to D.C. where she worked in the Senator’s office until marrying 7 years later. Eager to get into real estate, she joined one of the large national firms where she specialized in residential real estate. A move to Vail, Colorado took Kelle into vacation property management as an in-house broker to one of the local management companies.
In 1995, Kelle’s Texas roots starting calling for her to return to her home state. She moved to Houston and has since worked in various aspects of the real estate industry for 20 years. Though Kelle calls Broad Oaks her home base, she has listed and sold in a variety of communities throughout the Houston Metropolitan area. She can also refer clients to any place in the world,
She embraces wholeheartedly the Compass Credo: Our Mission is to help everyone find their place in the world. Kelle represents buyers or sellers with equal ease, and her collaborative nature helps create relationships with all parties to the transaction. Couple this with her decades of experience and her clients are sure to “find their place in the world”.
In her spare time, Kelle and her husband enjoy going to Fredericksburg with their miniature schnauzer where they own a country home. She has helped many people relocate or purchase a second home in the area. In addition, through the years she has lent a helping hand to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in various committee assignments, Junior League, Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary, Multiple Sclerosis Race to Erase MS, Ambassador to the Greater Houston Partnership, and membership in her sorority alumnae group and the National Society of Colonial Dames.
