Although Kelli Mullen was born in Niagara Falls, NY, and spent most of her childhood in Connecticut, she moved to Florida in 1993 and has relocated to Tampa three times! The moving process has always fascinated her.
Kelli and her husband Peter (and their firstborn) originally moved to Tampa in 2002. During their first year in South Tampa, they bought, remodeled, and sold their home, welcomed their second baby girl, and relocated to Virginia. Tampa called Kelli and her family back less than a year later.
“I know what it is like to buy and sell with very young children,” said Kelli. “Beyond just making a home, you are trying to find all the things to do with your young children!” Kelli and Pete welcomed daughter number three and lived in South Tampa until 2013. During those nine years, Kelli was very involved in the girls’ school life and developed a passion for home organizing.
It was bittersweet when the Mullens moved from Tampa to Austin, TX, from 2013-2021. But Kelli kept those Tampa relationships strong and settled right back in when they found a fantastic opportunity to return in May of 2021. “I have been so involved in the sale of all five homes,” Kelli said. “I decided that since I was back, it was time to help people find and sell their homes. It has been a passion for so many years!”
Kelli attended James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA, on a gymnastic scholarship (yes, she can still hold a mean handstand), receiving a Bachelor of Science in Communications and Public Relations. That dedication to gymnastics gave her the foundation for how she serves her real estate clients today.
“I have learned that not everything goes your way all of the time, but if you show grace and grit, things will happen for you,” she said. “I love getting to know a person and paying close attention to their needs. This helps me give my real estate clients the best overall experience.”
Kelli’s previous work experience has been in the medical sales space of neurology, dentistry, and dermatology. She can see things through, is always available for her clients, and is exceptionally organized. She has high energy and a passion for people that is contagious. “I have helped numerous friends find their homes, and I love seeing the vision that sometimes people can’t see in a space.”
Kelli and Pete have been married for almost 23 years. Maggie is a senior at TCU, Sammie is a freshman at Ole Miss, and Kate is a sophomore at Plant High School. In her spare time, Kelli loves playing racquet sports. She’s an avid tennis player, but pickleball has become one of her favorite activities! Although she loves a racquet in hand, she also says, “There’s nothing like a great walk on Bayshore Boulevard!”
