Betsy Kelly




After a career as a writer, editor and newspaper reporter, I decided to try selling real estate, at the suggestion of my mother, a Realtor herself. I thought I would take this new job on temporarily, but many years later,  I'm still at it. Through the years, I have grown more and more to appreciate the opportunity to help people accomplish some of their most important goals. I try to put myself in the shoes of my customers and clients and to understand their needs and the needs of their loved ones. I also can’t recall ever going across the threshold of a home for the first time and not thinking, “What would it be like for me to live here?” I have been fortunate to represent some of the most interesting people imaginable, be they singles, couples, or families. I have extensive experience listing homes in estates or that belong to seniors who are leaving their beloved houses, and to selling to and for clergy people with their particular needs. It is also a joy for me to work with people experiencing the thrill of owning their first homes. I am a third-generation Realtor, specializing in residential sales. 

I am married to Ed Kelly, a retired investment banker. We are the parents of  Elizabeth Eggleston, who is married to Winston Eggleston; Eleanore Maynard, who is married to Barry Maynard; and Mary Milton Kelly. We also are the adoring grandparents of May Eggleston, Edward Maynard and Walker Maynard. 

Whether you’re thinking about buying or selling, remember always that “All real estate is local." I would love the opportunity to discuss that with you.
