Kelley Martin, founder of Ascend Elite Realty, has built a career around her ability to get her clients all they deserve. Her outstanding aptitude for connecting with people and helping them reach their real estate dreams has led her to achieve more than $300 million in career sales and the distinction as one of the top agents in Greater San Antonio.
A native San Antonian, Kelley has spent most of her life living in various parts of the city. She graduated from college with a degree in business, and afterward, she started a family. Once her youngest son entered preschool, she decided to put her newfound free time and business education to good use by partnering with her then-husband, who was moving into real estate from luxury-home sales. Kelley initially obtained her license to work on contracts and scheduling. However, she soon began to play a more substantial role within the venture, and in just under a decade, went from selling her first house for $68,000 to being known as one of the area’s best agents. Kelley was recognized by San Antonio Business Journal as one of the Top 15 Individual Real Estate Agents in 2020 and elsewhere honored as the No. 1 individual sales agent among a pool of 1,300.
Kelley’s genuine love for people and real estate has made her a go-to source for clients at all stages of their real estate journey. Whether they’re looking for their first home, relocating with the military, or retiring and downsizing, clients trust the market knowledge and confidence Kelley brings to every transaction. On top of many years of experience and excellent client reviews, Kelley has expanded her skill set and expertise by obtaining Certified Negotiation Expert, Certified Retirement Education Specialist, and Seniors Real Estate Specialist® designations.
When she’s not busy selling homes, Kelley loves spending time with her two grown boys and her Australian shepherd. She also enjoys running, hiking, and helping others in need through the San Antonio Food Bank.
