Kelly Perkins : Your Coastal Market Specialist

Professional | Persistent | Passionate
Q : What is your favorite part of working in the real estate industry ? A : I love it all . I enjoy assisting my clients through each step of the process and celebrating their success after every transaction . Whether it be the excitement during the initial “ field trip ” exploring the possibilities of where a family might begin their next chapter or the satisfaction of bridging unique personalities during negotiations to assure a positive outcome for everyone involved . Lastly , I work in one of the most stunning coastal locations in the world .
Q : What qualities or certifications set you apart from other agents ? A : I was one of California ’ s first “ certified ” real estate appraisers , specializing in the Laguna Beach market . During the 80 ’ s and 90 ’ s , “ I worked for several national lending institutions in and around the surrounding coastal areas of Laguna Beach . This period provided me with a unique perspective
and foundation for what many consider an intimidating market here along the coast .
Q : What do you think is the key to your success ? A : No doubt about it . It is hard work , honesty , commitment , and determination , all with a constructive and joyful attitude ! My clients appreciate the attention to detail that I provide . This detail has helped pave the way to my success . I stay up to date on the pulse of the market , allowing me to be the best realtor for both my buyers and sellers . Those who know me know my true secret weapon ( s ) are my husband Craig and little dog “ Closer ” who constantly support me with a joyful outlook each and every day !
Q : What life events would you say give you perspective on living each day to the fullest ? A : My life — from catching a virus that led to a heart transplant to subsequently climbing some of the most iconic mountains around the world with my donor ’ s heart , planted the seed of my belief that there is no “ impossible .”
My heart transplant doctors once told me not to worry but rather leave that up to them . I took that advice to heart ( no pun intended ) and share that same advice to my clients , telling them to leave the heavy lifting to me . Whether they are out of town or local , I pride myself on having a reputation for taking the helm and navigating each and every critical step of the way so they can enjoy the process .
Q : What is your proudest accomplishment ? A : For sure , taking my donor heart on several amazing adventures and ultimately releasing her ashes on top of a mountain to help fulfill her legacy and express my gratitude for such a life-changing gift ! I believe she would be equally proud of my career accomplishments and those clients I have helped fulfill their dreams , all of which make me feel ALIVE .
