Debra L Kelly
A Florida native, Debra L. Kelly spent several years in Middle Tennessee, earned a bachelor’s degree in occupational therapy at Tennessee State University, and entered a career in health care. Living in Nashville, she and her husband enjoyed several vacations in Florida before they decided to make Sarasota their home in 2013. The interstate move and buying a new home sparked such an active interest in real estate that Debra turned professional in 2016. Since then, she has built an impressive skill set, earning designations as a Seller Representative Specialist, Seniors Real Estate Specialist®, and Americans With Disabilities Act-certified, as she represents buyers, sellers, retirees, and clients moving into or out of the area. Just as important as her real estate expertise are the values Debra brings forward from health care: a passion for people, a dedication to service, and the empathy and compassion that let her clients know she hears all of what they are saying — and that she will be their advocate while providing an enjoyable and successful real estate experience. In her spare time, Debra likes reading, decorating, flower gardening, and fishing. She’s also a cat lover who wants to volunteer for a pet rescue operation and a self-avowed Trekkie.
