Being a real estate agent is not just about selling a house. It’s about cultivating relationships with clients, listening to their needs, providing advice, and, ultimately, delivering results that improve their lives. This is what Kelly Hopkins built her career on, and it’s what she continues to do 20 years later. To her, clients aren’t just buyers and sellers; they’re beloved neighbors and friends.
Kelly has a Bachelor of Science in business and recreation administration with an emphasis in marketing. Before becoming an agent, the Bay Area native had an impressive career in the sports industry, working with notable franchises such as the Orlando Magic. Although she loved her profession, Kelly had an interest in real estate and decided that her marketing, sales experience, and love for meeting new people would be a perfect fit for the industry. She’s been a Bay Area Realtor® ever since.
Through her excellent customer service, strong work ethic, and high drive to succeed, Kelly has become a leader in the Bay Area market. Some of her achievements include earning the Pinnacle Award from the Bay East Association of Realtors® and being ranked in the top 25 agents in the U.S. at her previous brokerage.
When she’s not working with her clients, Kelly spends time in Newark with her husband and two children. She loves traveling, reading, gardening, interior design, and all water sports, especially scuba diving and paddleboarding. Kelly is also an active volunteer at the local high school and a supporter of Shriners Hospital.
