Ms. Kelly is president and founder of Appraisal Solutions and Fenix Real Estate. Appraisal Solutions was launched in 2008 as a mid-market appraisal firm servicing the residential mortgage market in northern Rhode Island. Since that time, Ms. Kelly has grown the firm to represent nearly every money lending institution and residential mortgage market participant throughout the entire state and southeastern Massachusetts.
While managing all the day to day operations of Appraisal Solutions, Ms. Kelly launched the brokerage firm Fenix Real Estate in 2012 as a way to capitalize on the recovering residential market following the financial crisis. Fenix now employs 5 agents who focus on the single-family and small multi-family sectors in submarkets which are underserved by the existing brokerage community. Fenix has transacted in Central Falls, one of region’s most neglected communities, downtown Providence to overlooked submarkets in Lincoln and East Greenwich, two of the more affluent submarkets in the area. Fenix and Appraisal Solutions, which are mostly women and minority managed organizations, invested heavily and are early adaptors in promising technologies which customers are increasingly embracing such as Zillow and Trulia.
Ms Kelly also currently serves on numerous boards and industry organizations in addition to being very active in community civic, theatrical and educational groups. She most recently served as President to her Rotary chapter after successfully launching an Interact Program which focuses on high school students.
Ms Kelly also holds the following designations: ABR, SRES, GAA, SRS, e-PRO
