More About Keely
Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I moved to the "Valley of the Sun" back in 2004. After living in the Desert Southwest for nearly 20 years, I truly cannot imagine wanting to live anywhere else! Washington will always hold a special place in my heart, but Arizona is my home and I LOVE the life I have been blessed to build in this beautiful state!
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Physics and Math from Pacific Lutheran University and enjoyed working as an Engineer before stepping away to raise my sweet kids...one of the best decisions I've ever made! When I was ready to go "back to work," I knew that Engineering no longer held a place for me...I was out of practice and had no desire to keep a rigid work schedule. I have always loved design, architecture and the thrill of the hunt, so real estate was a natural extension of my interests. My background in Engineering and "Mom-ing" has proven to be extremely valuable to my clients. I thrive on data and details, I am a problem-solver and solution-finder, a multi-tasker and mediator, an excellent negotiator and mindful communicator and I ALWAYS think outside-the-box in order to strategically position my buyers and sellers in an ever-changing real estate market. I have been a full-time Realtor® for over 10 years now! I absolutely LOVE what I do and I think my clients would agree that it shows!
Fun facts: I have 4 AMAZING kids! One of my girls was born in Guatemala...I have always had a heart for adoption and foster care! I LOVE being a mom! I have 2 of the sweetest Havanese pups in the entire world, Merlin & Dash, both aptly named (if you follow me on Instagram you will understand). I am blessed with the BEST family, friends and neighbors.
These are a few of my favorite things: Working out at the gym, hiking, playing indoor soccer (any chance I get), learning to play pickleball (my new favorite sport), shooting clays or targets at the range, listening to music, singing, playing piano, traveling both near and far, fantastic bars/restaurants, movies/musicals/theater/concerts and spending as much time as I can with the loves of my life!
