Micheal Kelly President Emerald Coast Cares FoundationMichael Kelly, President

I was born and raised in Baltimore MD. where I started my culinary career. I retired from my culinary career in 4 and 5 star hotels as a Chef, most notably The Peabody in Memphis, The Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas and The Royal Sonesta in New Orleans. My wife and I relocated to Miramar Beach in 1992 from Memphis TN. I obtained my Real Estate Brokers License in 1993 and have been a Broker/Owner with Keller Williams Realty since 2000. I am proud to be an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America and I really enjoy helping others and giving back to our community here on the Emerald Coast.
