With enumerable accolades including Charmain's Club which recognizes the top 1% of all Royal LePage agents in Canada, there is no one more qualified to handling any transaction than her. When asked what she enjoys most about what she does: " Successfully finding solutions to challenges for her clients-whether it is finding the right home, getting a home sold for the best price, overcoming obstacles during the negotiation process to close a deal, nothing is more satisfying than finding a solution that works for everyone." A firm advocate of always doing what is right for the client, customer service is paramount to Kelly and it is this doctrine that is distributed to the work ethic of the entire team.
A mother of two, and grandmother twice over, Kelly enjoys splitting her time between business and watching her family grow. Travel is a key element in Kelly's life, which in turn gives her the distinct advantage of learning other cultures and how to effectively manage transactions with the international client.
There is no listing or purchase too small or large for Kelly and her team. Each client is treated equally and can expect to benefit from the experience and customer service of The McKelvie Group.
