Born and raised in central Texas, Kelly’s real estate career began in 2007 when she joined one of Austin’s premier luxury brokerages as the listing manager. Since then, she’s used her native knowledge of the city and surrounding areas to help buyers find the perfect home or investment property from which to experience the quintessential Austin lifestyle. For sellers, she’s worked diligently to ensure they secure the most prosperous deal possible. As an integral part of the sales team at Fifth and West Residences, Kelly and her partner Jessica helped to successfully sell out the 39-story building before joining the Compass team in 2019.
Specializing in downtown luxury, Kelly is uniquely qualified to help clients on all sides of the market. She lived in downtown Austin for more than a decade and continues to invest there, too.
