Kelly and her husband Alex, a retired architect, found Sarasota in an impromptu detour to their vacation home in the Florida Keys. In Sarasota and the surrounding area, they discovered great architecture, an exciting cultural scene, and miles upon miles of unsurpassed natural beauty. Increasingly aware of the marvels of the area, they decided to become full-time residents in 2016. With nearly 20 years of living part-time and full-time in the sunshine state, Kelly has become an expert on the Florida lifestyle — how to find it, and how to live it. As a licensed Realtor®, she specializes in waterfront condominiums on Siesta Key, as well as gated, water-privileged, and planned communities in Osprey and Nokomis.

Before relocating in Sarasota, Kelly worked for 25 years in the arts, first as a graphic designer in print media, then as a museum exhibit designer, perfecting design skills which she now applies to staging properties with impeccable style. Kelly co-founded and was executive director of AIR.C, a non-profit Artist-in-Residency program in Chestertown, MD, while also serving as adjunct professor of studio art at Washington College. She holds an MFA from Spalding University and BFA from MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art.)

When she’s not working, Kelly enjoys spending time with family and friends, cycling on The Legacy Trail, kayaking, snorkeling, photography, and painting. Enthralled with Sarasota’s natural beauty, she has become a staunch advocate for sound environmental policies. Kelly is as committed to protecting the environment as she is to helping her customers find their perfect Florida home.
