RANCHO SANTA FE — Windermere Exclusive Properties and Steve Rodgers announced Lucy Kelts as the latest agent to join their team. Kelts brings 20 years of real estate experience and education to San Diego’s fastest-growing real estate agency.
“I joined Windermere Exclusive Properties because I am a firm believer in locally owned and operated businesses,” Kelts said. “Rancho Santa Fe has always been a community that prefers the local boutique style shops as opposed to corporate chains and I believe the real estate industry is no different.”
Kelts, previously of Prudential California Realty, comes to Windermere as the former No. 1 individual agent for all Prudential California Realty Offices in San Diego County. She has also earned the monumental Legend Award, which goes to the top 1 percent of producers in a franchise of 45,000 agents. The award itself is only given out after five consecutive years, 10 consecutive years, then 15 consecutive years. Kelts is one of few to have received the 15-year mark of excellence.
As a single mother of three, Kelts has raised her children to believe that knowledge is power. A former teacher in the Grossmont Union High School District, Kelts has been given a Lifetime Teaching Credential in California and has earned multiple undergraduate and graduate degrees and credentials.
Her approach to real estate utilizes every facet of her education. One trait she has learned in achieving her credentials and degrees is the importance of listening. “I have learned so much from some of the most decorated professors, but the one quality I learned that has made the difference in every aspect of my life is the ability to listen,” Kelts said. “Listening is the key to success in every industry because it helps you understand exactly what the client needs.”
Joining Kelts in her move to Windermere is Connie Kenyan, Kelts’s “right hand” and office manager of 15 years. Also joining Kelts and Kenyan will be fellow Realtors Tamara Stephenson and Sharon Corp
