Emily Kelley Price
“MY BACKGROUND IN FINANCE AND MY INSIGHT AS A LOCAL GIVES ME A UNIQUE SKILL SET TO ASSIST YOU IN YOUR HOME BUYING AND SELLING PROCESS. I LOOK FORWARD TO HELPING YOU FIND YOUR DREAM HOME IN THE MOUNTAINS!”
Emily graduated with a Business Degree in Real Estate from The University of Georgia in 2002, and began working as a commercial real estate analyst for Collateral Mortgage Capital (GrandBridge) in Birmingham, AL shortly thereafter. Emily credits the mentorship she received there as influential in laying the foundation for the work ethic and due diligence she has today.
In 2006, Emily and her husband, Cayce, returned to her hometown of Hayesville, North Carolina where the closeness of family and the slower-paced life of the area became the ideal backdrop for building their future together. After moving home, Emily secured a job with Bank of Hiawassee where she gained valuable banking experience despite the difficult economic conditions of the time. Emily maintained her position with the company
for 12 years, working as a commercial lender, special assets officer and mortgage banker before joining her dad, Richard Kelley, at Century 21, Black Bear Realty. Her 15 years of financial experience, as well as her local roots, provide Emily with a unique skill set and an irreplaceable insight into the North Georgia/Western Carolina market. The Kelley’s father/daughter partnership gives you access to their combined knowledge, further enhancing Emily’s ability to help you navigate each step of your home buying and/or selling experience. Emily says, “I absolutely love what I do! I consider it an honor to serve the clients I get to meet every day!”
