Broker, Big Rapids Realty, Inc
I am a graduate of Ferris State University with a degree in English and Speech Communications, and have worked previously in sales and sales management. I now live in Canadian Lakes with my husband and children. There are so many things that I love about living in Canadian Lakes, especially all of the amenities; including golf, the indoor and outdoor pool, the restaurant and all of the social clubs you can be a part of. I have made some great friendships and there truly is a wonderful sense of community. There is always something going on in Canadian Lakes and it really is the perfect place to raise my children.
What brought me back to Big Rapids to pursue my Real Estate career, was the chance to be back in the town I loved so much when I was in college and living here, but also to give buyers a new perspective on homes they may not have thought of before, and to bring some new insight on the idea of branching out to Canadian Lakes and living what we call “The GOOD Life.”
I also have a passion for being an active volunteer in my community. I have met so many wonderful people from helping with local events or fundraisers and I truly feel that my calling is to always give back as much as I can. I am currently the Ambassador for the Canadian Lakes Rally for the Cure, which is an annual golf outing to raise money for breast cancer research. This is one of the largest events for the Rally for the Cure in the entire nation and I am so proud to be a part of it. I am also currently on the Chippewa Hills Soccer Committee and in charge of social media and fundraising. I have served as the volunteer Editor for a local magazine in Canadian Lakes and many, many other activities and fundraisers when needed. As my husband would say, “If you need a volunteer, just ask Kelley!”
But above all of that, the most important part of my life is my husband and my children. I love being a mom so much and being involved in everything my children are a part of. I love watching their school and sporting events and they know I am always their biggest fan. I can honestly say, it is the highlight of my life to be able to watch them grow and excel at everything they do. Our household is definitely geared around all kinds of sports. I am a huge sports fan and in my spare time, I enjoy watching football, basketball, baseball and golf with my husband.
My goal is to make the buying and selling process as positive and stress free as possible. It is a big decision to purchase a home and I want to be there with you every step of the way to make it a great experience.
