Everything is better in Texas! So, when Kelley graduated high school in the mid-90’s and flew her hometown coop in Jim Wells County -- birthplace of Tejano Music, home of the ‘Missing LBJ Ballot Box 13’ and lair to the Fighting Alice Coyotes -- she knew traveling and adventure would always be a necessity, but the State of Texas would always have to be home. It wasn’t long before this ‘Aggie at Heart’ blazed a path into Austin,Texas …
Moving to a new town is exciting but also overwhelming. Kelley made my transition to Austin so much easier than I ever could have anticipated! She is a workhorse who never stops until she meets your housing needs. Kelley is a very experienced realtor with a vast knowledge of the real estate market in the Austin area! I highly recommend her!
She immediately fell in love with the plentiful hill country amenities, the wildflowers, the culture and the wonderful folks! 18 years later, Kelley is still proud to call ‘The Live Music Capital of the World’ her home -- and she finds immense joy in helping others do the same, priding herself on impeccable customer service and providing the smart tools needed to make strategic financial decisions.
Kelley Hughes now puts more than 22 years of residential and commercial real estate experience to work for her clients. Her extensive studies in Communications, Public Relations, Journalism, Photography and Television/Film Production, combined with her experiences working alongside top notch real estate agents, lenders, property managers and developers, makes Kelley an impeccable real estate resource to have in your corner. Not only has she compiled a robust toolkit of smart marketing strategies, but she comes loaded with sharp negotiation skills, a top-notch vendor list to cover any situation, and a personalized system which allows her clients a seamless transaction from contract to close.
Over the course of her career, Kelley has been involved in the sales and marketing of featured Austin-area developments such as Fourth&, 904 West, Chestnut Plaza, Arbolago on Lake Travis, and Lakeway Commons Shopping Center, giving her a unique understanding of Austin’s real estate market.
In her spare time, you can catch Kelley on Austin’s greenbelt trails with her furry sidekick (Chloe), floating the Frio River, taking in the beaches of South Padre Island, cheering (like it's going out of style) in the stands during a Houston Astros game, or just enjoying the laughter of family and friends at a backyard barbecue. She also enjoys volunteering at and for various functions, and charities across the Austin Metro area, including Mike’s Place at Meals on Wheels.
Whether you are selling your home, attempting your first purchase, are considering new construction or if you are an investor looking to expand their portfolio, put Kelley’s experience to work for you.
