Kelly grew up in Winnetka, Illinois where she attended New Trier High School. She received a Psychology degree from the University of Illinois and proceeded to earn a Masters's of Education from DePaul University in Chicago. When Kelly and her husband started their family, she decided to stay at home and raise her two young boys. While hard to step back from her teaching career, she became very active in her community of Northfield primarily through volunteer work. As a hobby and fitness enthusiast, she became an instructor at Studio Lagree in Highland Park in 2016. Her favorite part about teaching is making a personal connection with her clients and helping them achieve their goals through hard work and dedication.
Kelly’s love of real estate began when she was a young child accompanying her dad to open houses all throughout the North Shore. She appreciates older homes and restoring them to fit a modern lifestyle while maintaining the charm and character of their time. She loves classic architecture with all its small details. Real estate was a natural life progression for Kelly bringing together all her life skills and passions. Kelly has a wonderful way of connecting with people, building relationships, listening, and really understanding what people are looking for in a home. Her attention to detail and passion for finding people the perfect home for their family makes her a valued addition to the Smart LeMire team.
Kelly lives in Northfield and is in the process of slowly renovating their current home. She lovingly renovated their previous home in Northfield as well. She loves a fixer-upper and is not afraid of a project! In her free time, she loves to exercise, read, do sports, and spend time with her two sons, husband, and rescue dog.
