Kelly was born into a family of real estate entrepreneurs on the front range of Northern Colorado so it only made sense that she would follow in this profession. She inherited a strong work ethic plus experience in residential sales, investment properties, and property management in both Colorado and Montana. Kelly has a genuine passion for real estate and the Bozeman community. She originally moved to Bozeman on a golf scholarship at MSU. She quickly fell in love with the expansive views, easy access to recreation, wonderful sense of community, and friendly people. It's also where she met her husband, a Montana native from Helena.
After graduating from MSU, Kelly worked as an assistant golf professional in Denver. A few years after that she returned to Bozeman and obtained her Montana real estate license. Shortly after that, Kelly went back to Colorado to pursue a career as a Division II Collegiate Head Golf Coach while also getting her Colorado broker license. During this time, her family grew and with three young boys, they decided to move back to Montana. They wanted to raise their family in a smaller town with a feeling of community and easy access to recreation. Kelly is passionate about family, real estate, skiing, golf, fly-fishing, hiking, and cooking. She loves that being back in Montana gives her a chance to expose her sons to everything Bozeman has to offer.
"Kelly Smith was amazing to work with! She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, helping my husband and I get through the homebuying process our first time. She knows the market extremely well and has deep relationships with other agents that she used to our advantage. Despite how tough the Bozeman market is, she helped us get exactly what we wanted within our budget and kept us out of bidding wars. We were on a time crunch as well since our landlord suddenly decided to sell our rental and from the first day I reached out to Kelly to when we picked up the keys, it was less than a 30 day process. I highly recommend Kelly and will definitely be sticking with her in the future. It’s also worth mentioning that she’s a lot of fun, has a great sense of humor, and brings a sense of calm to the stressful environment of buying a home in a very hot market."
"We had the pleasure of working with Kelly Smith and she was absolutely amazing! Buying a home isn’t the easiest process especially when you live out of state but our experience was nothing less than perfect. We found a house we liked and since we weren’t there, she scheduled video conference walk through so we could see the home, answer questions, and provide her honest feedback on the property. She was very accommodative through the whole process despite our “high maintenance” needs since we were buying a home long distance. She would meet contractors at the house for us, stop by the house and put delivered packages in the home for us, pick us up at the airport, and offered to help us with anything we needed. I’m a huge stickler for service and I can say, she absolutely gets it! We’ve worked with realtors on other deals but she was without a doubt, the very best. If you want someone who is a go-getter, professional, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and honest, trust me on this one.. you won’t be disappointed! The Meares Austin, Texas"
"Really happy with our experience purchasing our first home with Bozeman Real Estate Group. We were relocating from out of state during the Pandemic, so it required a lot of virtual meetings and a lot of extra communication to find the right property for our family and ultimately close on our first house. Really impressed with our agent Kelly’s professionalism, friendliness, and help as we navigated the purchasing process during interesting times, definitely recommend!"
"I recently purchased a home with the help and expertise of Kelly Smith. I laid out a general idea of what I was looking for in a first home and the home that I ended up buying was not yet on the market. Kelly took my vision and executed on it. She found my dream home through extensive research and persistence. Not only was she dedicated to finding me the perfect home, she also made the buying process easy and streamlined. She was extremely organized and had an answer to every question- I was always impressed with her quick responses. Furthermore, I bought my house during the uncertainty of the COVID pandemic and she always made me feel safe and comfortable. I could tell she always had my best interest in mind! I can't recommend her enough."
"We are so happy to have worked with Kelly from Bozeman Real Estate Group! Kelly did a great job helping us find our first home! She asked great questions and was attentive to what we were really looking for in a home that helped us make the right choice in a home. She had great communication with us both during the process as well as after we closed. Highly recommend!"
"Just recently bought a house and we were lucky enough to work with Kelly Smith. Kelly is very friendly, personable, and professional. She made us feel comfortable and we were able to count on her 100% of the time. She gave us advice from start to finish, and we cannot thank her enough for her time and efforts!"
"When starting my real estate search in Bozeman, I was so lucky to be in the hands of Kelly Smith and the Bozeman Real Estate Group! Kelly and the office as a whole were nothing but professional, knowledgable, helpful, and so caring throughout the whole process. The market in Bozeman is a challenging one to step into and Kelly went above and beyond in finding properties that met my search, connecting me with the right resources for a tricky purchase, and navigating the tedious mortgage process. Kelly was so helpful and was always available and expedient in her responses the entire 90 day (!!!) process. After finally closing on the property, Kelly has remained responsive and helpful answering my questions about utilities, contacts, and just general information on the area. The. Bozeman Real Estate Group is one of the largest groups in the area and due to their size are able to get you information and connections quickly and answer questions other individual realtors or smaller groups may not know the answers to on non conventional properties. I cant recommend Kelly and the Bozeman Real Estate Group enough!"
"We just purchased our land in Bozeman with Kelly Smith. Frankly, she was amazing: responsive, on top of things, preemptive, very friendly, and got things done efficiently. Best realtor ever!!!"
"Bought a House and Made a Friend Our experience with Kelly, and Bozeman Real Estate Group, was nothing shy of amazing. Moving homes, across town or across country, has it's challenges accompanied with many questions and lots of uncertainty. Kelly was extremely patient and kind with us answering all of our "California concerns". She answered questions regarding home location, school districts, proximity to parks, schools, downtown, etc. She drove through subdivisions and sent us videos so we could get a feel for the lay of the land before our visit. I mean, who does that?! Once we arrived to tour Bozeman she graciously drove us all around town, looking through homes and finally helping us submit an offer that was accepted. Her encouragement and local market knowledge helped us tremendously in choosing the final number to submit to the seller. After the offer was accepted she visited the home frequently to check in on it, throw packages inside, arranged for cleanings, and did general preparation for our arrival. We even convinced her to FaceTime with us one more time to virtually tour the home so we could see where our existing furniture would best fit. She was the first friend we made in Bozeman. Thank you, Kelly, for the wonderful work you did for us. We are so grateful. Cheers to our new friendship!"
"Kelly Smith, just a quick "thank you" for a superb job with this recent escrow closing. Although an "out-of-state" transaction, which has its own challenges, all went very well because you were engaged and attentive each step of the way. Great Job!"
"Kelly Smith was my agent. And I wanted to share how much I appreciate the hard work and dedication Kelly put into helping us with our home transaction. Here are some of the ways Kelly helped to make our event such a wonderful experience. Of course Kelly exhibited all of the table stakes I expect in any agent. This means Kelly knows the area. Kelly knows how the in's and out's out of purchasing a home. And we had a great a purchase, despite a difficult house, because of Kelly's involvement. For a period of time, when I was remote, Kelly helped with do virtual tours. Imagine a professional walking around with a small phone explaining each house. Yes Kelly was willing. Kelly had a tool chest of different professionals to help : handymen, inspectors, plumbers, etc. This came in handy after the purchase. Kelly was willing to help with extra items after the purchase. The home wasn't in the best condition. So when inevitable issues arose, Kelly helped post-purchase with the various compromises that came up. Thank you Kelly for all of the hard work you put in."
"We were excited to start the process of looking for the perfect residential property in Bozeman! Kelly Smith helped us do just that! From her first hand knowledge of the area to her deep understanding of current market conditions, Kelly was professional and extremely accommodating when it came to what we were looking for. She made the negotiation process seamless and in the end we came out ahead on our little slice of Big Sky country! We highly recommend Kelly and Bozeman Real Estate Group! We could not be happier!!"
