“Working with an agent should take the stress off of you. I understand that renting, buying or selling, especially in NYC, can be a whirlwind of an experience, and it is my job to guide you to make it effortless and successful. I pride myself on orchestrating the best deals possible for all my clients, and going to bat for them to find the right property or buyer. Above all, I know you have a choice in what agent you hire, so I strive to ensure that every moment of working with me is enjoyable and professionally executed!”
Prior to joining Compass, Kelly served as an effective team leader to 15 agents in Manhattan and Brooklyn for seven years, overseeing hundreds of transactions in rentals, sales and commercial sectors. She is very knowledgeable of the industry, and well versed in helping people achieve their unique goals.
Kelly was raised in Long Island and Virginia Beach, with deep family ties in New York. She’s always been geared toward design and leadership, winning scholarships for art, design, and team leading. After completing East Carolina University’s Musical Theatre program and graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre and Acting, she promptly moved to Manhattan, where she completed a Meisner Acting Program and has spent the last decade. While performing around the city, Kelly won the Apollo three times. She also fell into business management and sales, later pursuing her passion for real estate.
Her background in fine and performing arts is a bonus in helping clients find gems to polish and maximize their listings to the highest value. Other than real estate, she is hugely into travel and cuisine, and can recommend great spots in any neighborhood of interest. Her own favorite pastime is exploring all the cultural opportunities NYC has to offer.
