Besides mortgage lending, Kelly enjoys speaking about video marketing. When she started her YouTube Channel in 2014, there was an increase of 35%* in her business the very first year and steady residual growth since. This exposure has also led her to additional TV appearances including being featured in a special segment on “Designing Spaces” on Lifetime TV. Kelly was also the Arizona host of “The American Dream” TV show in the Phoenix/Scottsdale Market on CBS (from 2017-2021).
Kelly’s passion for video marketing inspired her to launch the Real Estate Video Influencer Group. Real Estate Video Influencer is a community of real estate professionals who not only believe in the power of video but strive to dominate in the digital space. Their mission is to educate, entertain and
positively influence their communities through the use of video. Join the community on Facebook @realestatevideoinfluencer or learn more at RealEstateVideoInfluencer.com.
In 2020 Kelly also created Sunshine Warrior, a community that comes together to share stories, lift others up, inspire, and give hope on both sunny days and during life’s storms. A Sunshine Warrior is a beacon of light in the midst of a storm, one who brings peace, love, inspiration and strength to the world.
