But did you know that one of her favorite activities growing up was accompanying her mom on listing appointments? “I’ll never forget the house we went to that had the llamas, they were amazing.” said Kelcey, whose mom is broker Terri Dillon.
Kelcey grew up in the real estate business, the youngest of three siblings. “I used to help my mom pass-out flyers and I would order and file carbon copies of contracts and disclosures back in the day before e-mail, scanning and faxing, things were different back then,” she said. “Later, when we were in high school, me and my friends also did telemarketing.” Today, Kelcey serves as operations manager at Realty Executives Dillon, which has more than 70 sales agents.
Kelcey attended Chula Vista Hills Elementary School, Bonita Vista Middle School and Bonita Vista High School (class of 2004). She was a cheerleader in high school. Kelcey and a friend Stephanie San Agustin founded the school’s gymnastics team (today, Stephanie also works at Realty Executives Dillon).
After high school, Kelcey moved to Santa Barbara to attend school and work at the Nordstrom store. In 2006, she returned to San Diego and worked at Nordstrom at University Towne Centre where she met and recruited Huda Diab (today, Huda is a top-producing agent at Realty Executives Dillon). Also in 2006, Kelcey began attending classes at San Diego State University and helped open the escrow division at the office. She worked as an escrow assistant over the next three years. Then, in 2009, she graduated from SDSU, earned her real estate license, “and I’ve been full time at the real estate office ever since,” Kelcey said. “It’s very rewarding to help people on the biggest purchase of their life.”
Kelcey has a new baby. She gave birth to son Camden on Nov. 11. She frequently brings the baby to the office. “Our agents are very close, we are like family here. Camden has a lot of uncles and aunts here. He’s already part of the office family.”
Kelcey appreciates her involvement with the Association. “PSAR is like a big family who love and support each other,” she said. “We encourage each other to do right, be their best at their jobs and treat others as you would want to be treated.”
