Kelly's fascination with real estate began at a young age. Born and raised in Arizona to an extended family of builders, Kelly was brought up around real estate planning, construction, and sales, and she used her experience to become a successful interior decorator and home designer in California and Maui.
Kelly started off designing and decorating a 4,000 sq ft Loft in Downtown LA in 1993, which due to the extremely high ceilings, she installed an indoor trampoline and swing set. The furnishings were hand-picked antiques, and self-made "shabby Chic", and left visitors in awe after experiencing Kelly's hospitality. Kelly naturally moved into property management, planning, and design for luxury estates during her first years living on Maui, starting in 1995.
Kelly began property management and care-taking in 1996 on a 5-acre estate in Kula. The property was made up of a large main house, a 2-bedroom apartment, and a Dojo-Aikido and Capoeira-studio. This eventually led to other multi-home properties, ocean front private luxury homes, and commercial property management.
This house, swimming pool/area, walkways, and landscaping was designed and managed by Kelly and her husband, in 2006-2016, on the North Shore of Haiku, Maui. The property includes a 5 bedroom ocean view Main house with yoga studio, 3 bedroom Ohana, imported and custom designed Balinese pool cabana and sauna room, 10 raised garden beds, orchid nursery, 1/2 acre exotic orchard, and bordered by a stream to the ocean. Kelly managed this property for over 8 years for the owner.
