My name is Kelly Rockefeller, and I have been helping people achieve their dreams since 2011!  If homeownership, building, or investing in properties is one of your dreams, I am the experienced REALTOR® to help you through that process.  I am located in the Greater Milwaukee area and specialize in lake properties, new construction, and buying and selling existing homes as well as condominiums, multi-family units, and land.  From Lake Michigan to Lake Country – it’s important to love where you live!

I began my career in real estate after the “big bang” of 2007 while living in a ‘money pit’ that we just couldn’t get ahead of.  Personally, it was a very emotionally trying time, and I vowed to help people with their dream of homeownership with the knowledge of my life lessons as my ultimate wisdom.  From there, I became educated in the real estate process, the contract laws, and became involved in multiple educational organizations and serving on the board of committees with The Women’s Council of REALTORS, the Residential Real Estate Council, and the Professional Standards Committee within our local Greater Milwaukee Association of REALTORS.  I have also been an ambassador on our local Multiple Listing Service board to help create new standards for the Real Estate industry. My passion for the process is greatly rivaled for my absolute joy in helping people achieve their dream of homeownership!

I have helped many people with their real estate transactions, and the relationships I have cultivated during the process have humbled me.

“Kelly helped us find the right house and was very professional and courteous at all times. She was always on time and enthusiastic while we were looking for the perfect house. We would definitely use Kelly again and recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell real estate! We absolutely love our house!” – Lance W.

“Kelly is amazing. She is willing to meet you anywhere and at any time, even on the weekends. She is very knowledgeable and has a great personality. You would be lucky to have her on your side.” – Kenneth C.

 “Kelly is a highly attentive real estate agent who acted in our best interest through the home buying process. She never made us feel like she would rather be selling a higher end home to someone else and graciously stuck by us as we viewed almost 40 homes to find the right one and wrapped it up with a wonderful referral to an excellent banker. I felt cared for every step of the way.” – Jessica L.

 I’m also extremely lucky to have great relationships with fellow colleagues.

“In the time I have known Kelly, it’s become clear that she’s motivated, detail oriented and absolutely in love with real estate…which means you want her on your team. If you have a buying or selling need, I highly recommend you give Kelly a call.” – Michael C

“Kelly's expertise in the real estate field is second to none. Kelly truly understands the importance of knowing where the market is heading and uses the information to educate her clients with the heart of a teacher. Kelly's buyers and sellers end up knowing so much more about the market than most other buyers and sellers and end up reaping the benefits. Her positive and bubbly personality only add to her top-notch service.” Dan L. 

My partnership with EXIT Realty Horizons has been one of complete success!  We are involved in many facets of the industry as well as up to date on cutting edge technology.  With the international support of the EXIT Realty brand, we bring a whole new level of care to our agents and customers.  The EXIT Realty vision is “work hard, play hard, rest hard” – and it’s also a fun place to work!

My personal vision is all about work-life balance.  Loving what I do in Real Estate is really the icing on the cake!  I grew up on the south-side of Milwaukee and absolutely love this city.  Everything about Milwaukee shines; from the summer festivals, local breweries, and of course – Lake Michigan itself, it’s all fantastic! 

I might be obsessed with lakes, big and small, and currently live in the area what is known as “Lake Country”.  The area of Lake Country technically has over 140 lakes in Waukesha County!  They span from southern Waukesha County by Muskego to northern Waukesha County in Colgate.  My area of specialty is Delafield (where I currently reside), Wales, Dousman, Genesee, Ottawa, Oconomowoc, Chenequa, Nashotah, North Lake, Hartland, Pewaukee, Lisbon, Sussex, and Waukesha.  Lakes are fun year-round out here – but personally my favorite is being on the boat in the summertime on Lake Michigan. 

Warm weather is my jam!  I love the heat and humidity which is why I always enjoy SCUBA diving in tropical locations with my dive buddy.  As a single mom of two teenagers and two wacky dogs, my life is a constant sitcom! My personal motto is “a day without laughing is a day wasted!”  I’d love to help you Love Where You Live and enjoy the process with professionalism and fun!
