Get to Know Kelly Perkins

You should first know that I have my heart in the right place; helping others achieve their dreams and living a better life. As a heart transplant recipient, my journey has been fraught with challenges and triumphs. But after my transplant, I set out to climb mountains around the world and penned a book about my experience, “The Climb of my Life.” I also formed a charitable foundation called Moving Hearts so I could help pass on my good fortune to others and support them in their journey to fulfill their own legacy.

But among all of it, I maintained my professional prowess and independence and stayed committed to my career in the real estate industry. I live to exceed expectations and share my passion for life, and now consistently strives to perform more than just the traditional real estate agent tasks.

With over a decade of experience as a coastal residential appraiser for several national banking institutions

I took a leap into the agent representation side in the coastal community I love and the County in which I have lived for the last 30 years. As a Laguna Beach resident, my familiarity with this jewel of the California Coast allows me to bring unparalleled knowledge to the table for my clients. When it comes to agent representation and properties in the heart of this beach community, in each case, character counts – and that is something I intrinsically understands.

Currently, I am a licensed realtor with the Laguna Beach office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. Additionally, I have had hands-on experience in the process of home remodeling where I had the good fortune to work side by side with renowned architects and the city Design Review Board (DRB). I have also interacted with numerous trades while assuming the role of a General Contractor. These life experiences and broad network of contacts and connections does something much more important than bolster my life – it boosts the already high caliber of resources and service I bring to each of my clients.

Whether you are buying or selling, my goal is to provide my clients with the best service possible. I will share my real estate know-how, my local insight and my deep-seated love of all things Orange County – especially the gorgeous selection of seaside homes! And if you didn’t guess already – My heart is in this 100%!

"We were very fortunate to have Kelly represent us when buying our home. She was professional, responsive and delightful. We had a very short escrow and everything needed to run like clockwork for us close on time. Thanks to Kelly, it did. If we need an agent again… we will be using Kelly Perkins.”
