Kelly entered the real estate profession as an office manager of a commercial real estate appraising and consulting firm. After exposure and experience, she obtained the California Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser license. In addition, to optimize her competence and skills as an appraiser, she obtained the professional SRA designation. The SRA designation is awarded by the Appraisal Institute to qualified appraisers who pass rigorous education requirements, have extensive experience that meets strict criteria, produce a demonstration report, pass a final exam, and complete an oral interview. The SRA appraiser must adhere to strict continuing education requirements to ensure they are current with the evolving real estate profession.
In addition to the advanced education received through the Appraisal Institute, Kelly holds an A.A. degree in Business Administration and a B.S. degree in Liberal Studies & Business.
Kelly is an active member in the Northern California Chapter of the Appraisal Institute. She currently serves on the Newsletter Committee providing articles for publication. As time permits, she assists with registration at the seminars and courses offered throughout the East Bay.
Kelly has lived in the East Bay since relocating from Iowa as a child in 1972. She has seen the growth and changing market trends of the area during this time period. This exposure enhances her understanding of the East Bay and the real estate market and trends throughout the region.
East Bay Property Valuations appraises all types of residential dwellings located in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. By limiting the market area to these two counties enhances the quality of appraisals. The concentration in a smaller territory allows the appraiser to be familiar with the many cities within the counties and the various neighborhoods throughout.
