Kelly Zijlstra

Real Estate Agent

As a creative thinker, Kelly has always observed the world in a colorful, unique and honest way. Kelly's career in Real Estate began with her Home Staging Business which she ran for 8 years prior to getting her Real Estate license, so that she could help clients not only prepare their homes to sell quickly and for top dollar but to facilitate the transaction from start to finish. Growing up in Africa, traveling throughout the world as a young girl, and then calling Hawaii home for over 10 years has contributed to a culturally diverse background, as well as key factors in her open, honest and positive approach to her work and life. Today, as a real estate professional, Kelly brings a strong commitment to client satisfaction through clear communication, keen negotiation skills and a strong team of professionals working with her to maximize the home selling/buying experience. A focused listener, able advisor and fair advocate, Kelly is known for her intuition and diligence while employing encouragement and genuine concern as she creates a positive experience for both sides in any property transaction. Her business approach is direct and successful; she listens to the client's needs and matches them to the right property, then assures an honest and efficient transaction. When she is not working hard helping clients buy or sell homes, you will find Kelly swinging a hammer and firing up a torch in her studio, doing Yoga, on a camping adventure with her husband, two teens and dappled dachshund Zeke, or at the beach, where she has called North County San Diego home for over 20 years.
