"I would HIGHLY recommend hiring Kelly Griffin as your realtor. From the second she walked on our door she made me feel as though we were in the best hands. She truly cares about everyone she comes in contact with, and it shows. I never for a second doubted that our best interests were being kept in mind. In fact, in all fairness, our transaction felt like ALL parties (even the buyers) were also handled with care by Kelly. She is just a genuine person, and from what I have seen, you aren't always guaranteed that with all realtors. Kelly brings with her a wealth of knowledge and a professional approach to maximizing all aspects neccessary for the best outcome possible. Our house sold within a week from being listed and we recieved well over asking. "

"Kelly also has special certification in divorce real estate, which can prove to be a real tricky situation. Kelly handled our situation with flying colors and was able to support both parties in the process. The prospect of selling our family home was overwhelming and emotional, and yet with Ms. Griffin I felt completely supported and encouraged from start to finish. I feel lucky to have met Kelly Griffin. She was more than a realtor, she has been a supportive friend during and even after our transaction was complete. Im beyond grateful for Kelly!"

"Kelly is always willing to jump in and do whatever it takes to get the sale! She is very tenacious and persistent and knows the neighborhood very well. Her upbeat and positive attitude was contagious to clients and potential home buyers alike! It was a pleasure working with Kelly."

"Kelly did a great job during the whole process of selling our home and the purchase of our new home. She has a great knowledge of the local market and ensured we received the best price for the sale of our home. Kelly kept us well informed during the process and closely coordinated with the buyer's agent, title companies, appraisers etc. I would highly recommend Kelly if you are looking to sell your home"

"Kelly was extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make the selling and buying if my new home as smooth as possible. Always contactable and promptly responded to any questions I had. I would highly recommend Kelly to anyone looking for the smoothest transaction possible"

About Kelly
What sets Kelly apart as a real estate agent is her passion, both for real estate and helping her clients achieve their dreams of homeownership and creating their next chapter.

The Reno, NV native moved to Orange County to attend college. From there she moved to San Diego in 1994. Kelly has been living in North County San Diego, specifically Carlsbad, for the past twenty years as well as the Carmel Valley and Del Mar communities for 8 years before that. Her career experience is in Marketing & Advertising and out of college she worked for a local ad agency in Del Mar. She left that career to raise her children and pursue her passion in real estate. Prior to becoming a Realtor®, she worked as a real estate appraiser and as a mortgage loan officer. All of her past experience gives her the insight on how to properly market & price the property and confidently vet out secure buyers.

Kelly’s clientele concentration and recent transactions have been all over North County San Diego. She lives in Bressi Ranch and has been a resident since the first phase of the community seventeen years ago and has become a specialist in the area. 

An area of her job that is near and dear to her heart is working with couples who are experiencing divorce. Having gone through her own divorce back in 2006 created a fire in her to pay it forward to help women & men in a similar situation navigate the divorce process sharing the knowledge she gained from her own experience, good and bad.

Selling the marital home can be the most emotional part of uncoupling. When working with divorcing clients she gives them extraordinary, compassionate & professional service that goes above and beyond a typical client/agent relationship. Often times the house has to be sold to finalize the divorce and Kelly is there every step of the way. Preparing the home to sell is a big task and can be very overwhelming. She will take that burden off of her clients so they can focus on other things.

Kelly is a founding member of Vesta as the real estate specialist of the group.  Being vetted out by Vesta's Leadership team, she joined the group in September, 2019. Vesta is a divorce support group offering complimentary information to people going through the divorce process and don't know where to start. Kelly is partnered with a special group of professionals who dedicates their time to help people navigate through this difficult transition in life.  Kelly discusses the options divorcing couples face with the marital home.  She also offers complimentary Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) reports to determine the current market valuation of the home. This allows you to have informed conversations on asset division, post divorce budgets, real estate buyouts, etc. with your team of divorce professionals. 

In addition to Kelly, the group consists of a Divorce Mediator / Divorce Coach, a Litigating Divorce Attorney, a Mortgage Lender and a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA) all offering their expertise in their respective fields to collaborate together and guide people in the right direction to get them through their divorce as emotionally & financially whole as possible.  In divorce, you will often hear, "build your team!"
