Kelley ReitzelKelley Reitzel
Broker, Big Rapids Realty, Inc & Reed City Realty, Inc
I am originally from Lakeview, Michigan and I am also a graduate of Ferris State University with a degree in English and Speech Communications. I have worked previously in sales and sales management. I have been with Big Rapids and Reed City Realty Inc. since 2015 as a REALTOR®, then Associate Broker. I became the Broker of our company in January of 2022.
I live in Canadian Lakes with my husband and we are living the “empty nest” life. 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 place to call home.
I have a passion for being an active volunteer in my community. I truly feel that my calling is to always give back as much as I can. I currently volunteer for the Manna Pantry in Big Rapids, adopt a highway with our local REALTOR® association and the Salvation Army as needed. I have also chaired many charity golf events, including the Rally for the Cure in Canadian Lakes, served as the Editor for a local magazine and also served on the Soccer Board for Chippewa Hills.
For our REALTOR® organization, I have chaired the annual golf outing for several years, served on the community outreach committee, the forms committee, and also the grievance committee, just to name a few. I was named the REALTOR® of the Year for our association in 2020, which was a great honor. I currently serve on the West Central Association Board of Directors and am the president elect for the 2023 year.
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. My children are all grown now and seeking their new life adventures, but they know they always have a place at home if they need it.
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.
