Kelley, Georgann Puddy and Terri Allen are all Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialists who have received Guild designation through required specialized training and a proven track record. These designations allow them to network with luxury edified agents across the country to bring buyers for homes.
Compassion for clients – Kelley considers it a blessing to assist family and friends (and their family and friends) with one of their largest assets. “Referrals are the heart of our business, with over 98% of our business coming from referrals every year since 2005,” she says. “Our team is Ramsey Trusted – this is a designation from money expert Dave Ramsey given to Realtors who will do whatever it takes to help people win with money and life decisions, which we take very seriously. We serve clients with the heart of a teacher, walking them through each step and letting them know what the next step will be. Our goal is consistent 5-star service!”

Integrity – As noted previously, the team’s mission is Serving Clients with the Highest Integrity, through Experienced Teamwork. There are nine licensed agents with special gifts, talents and experience: Brandee Kelley, Owner; Georgann Puddy, Lead Agent Kyle Miller, Director of Operations; Terri Allen (Specialty: Luxury); Kristin Babek (Specialty: Builders and Investors); Becky Davis (Specialty: Senior Housing); Libby Wren; Emily Swanson; and Lizzy Davis.
Humility – Kelley notes that each team member has a heart for God, service and the community. “God has blessed us with an amazing business, which allows us to share,” she says. “For example, part of every commission earned goes to Bikes For Mission Arlington, which in December allowed 1,766 children to learn more about the love of Christ through the gift of a new bicycle. In February, the team has the privilege of supporting thousands of teen girls during the There(4) conference, which helps them learn about and live out their identity in Christ.”
As Kelley and her team continue to set the standard for the way to administer residential real estate, she believes they are doing more than that. “Lives are built and legacies left by daily decisions,” she says. “Each day we make choices based on the priorities of God, Family and Business. My goal is to live out 2 Chronicles 31:20: In all she did, Brandee sought the Lord, worked hard and prospered.”
