A Midlothian native, Kelly’s career in Real Estate began in Virginia in 2004. Growing up, her mother worked for real estate attorneys and her father was a contractor, so she developed an interest in real estate at an early age. “I used to love going and watching the progress of the homes my father was building,” she remembered. Fascinated by the homes being built by her father and with some insider knowledge from her mother, she decided that selling homes was the perfect fit for her. A young and driven new agent, she managed to sell over one million dollars in real estate in her first year! Listening to the needs and expectations of her clients is what she believes makes her a strong realtor and how she finds a perfect fit for them.
Now, with 12 years experience under her belt, she has worked in many areas of the business. “I have assisted clients in both buying and selling of Single Family homes, Condos, Townhomes, Short Sales and Foreclosures,” racking off the many closings she’s done. She has personally undergone the experience of buying a foreclosure. “I have purchased a foreclosure, renovated it, resided in it and sold it for a profit,” she said. For two years, Kelly brought her expertise to Florida, where she moved and became a Realtor in 2012. Making that move gave her more familiarity with how markets can change and how important it is for a Realtor to impart that knowledge to a client. Recently relocating back to Virginia, The Wanda Fears team has become a perfect fit, as they also can attest that market knowledge can get you the best price and know when a deal is worth going for! Something else Kelly and Wanda see eye to eye on is the importance of staging a home for showing and has plenty of experience staging for clients. If there’s something that her renovation experience has taught her is that everything has potential, you just have to help people see it.
Having been born and raised in Midlothian, she is very familiar with the South Side of Richmond as well as the West End. Virginia being her home for 35 years, she is excited to see all of the growth happening in the Tri-City area and hopes to bring all of her experience to the table when helping her clients navigate the new, exciting market we’re seeing emerge throughout Virginia.
For fun, Kelly and her wife like to cruise to the Caribbean Islands and she is enthusiastic about becoming involved with her community in the upcoming year.
