Get to Know Kelsey Jones:
Tell us about yourself.
I am from Ankeny but graduated from Norwalk High School and currently live in Ankeny. Last month, my husband, Nathan, and I celebrated our five-year anniversary and we have a little boy who just turned two. We are lucky enough that most of our immediate family is local and we are able to spend time together.
What are your hobbies and interests outside of real estate?
I enjoy being outside and spending time with my friends and family. We have two dogs, a Goldendoodle and a German Shepard, so my husband and I have recently gotten involved in dog shows locally. I also enjoy traveling and exploring new places.
What is your background?
Before getting into real estate, I was an accountant for six years in both the public and private sectors in Des Moines. I decided to get into real estate because I enjoy helping and making new relationships with people. Also, I’ve always had a passion for real estate and the home buying process.
What is your favorite neighborhood in the Des Moines area?
My favorite neighborhood is Prairie Trail in Ankeny because I love all the different styles of home and all the area has to offer. Also, I really enjoy the different restaurants and areas in downtown Des Moines after working down there the last few years. I love the Sculpture Park and Gray’s Lake with all the walking paths. It’s a great place to get outside and enjoy the scenery.
What can your clients expect from you?
My biggest strengths are being reliable and timely. I know from having a busy schedule with a toddler and family that it’s important to be on time and available when my clients need me.
My clients can expect a positive attitude and for me to be an excellent resource for them along the way. I know that buying and selling a house can be extremely stressful and I want to make the experience more enjoyable. I strive to be upfront on how the process will go and be available for them whenever they have questions.
I know that communication is key to developing a good relationship.
Why did you choose real estate?
I am passionate about being a REALTOR® because I want to help people find their dream homes and make the experiences enjoyable.
