Meet the Founder

Meet the company founder, Tom Kelly, a premier home builders in St Louis since 1967.  With only $164 dollars to his name, Kelly moved his wife and two small children to St. Louis in 1962 to start his career selling real estate at Jason Kniffen Real Estate Company.  He sold his very first home the very next day to a gentleman who was simply on a service call to install the new telephone lines (at Kelly’s new residence).  Quickly he fell in love with St. Louis and the growing opportunities the city held.

Four years later, Kelly secured his real estate broker’s license and opened his own company.  He built his first home later that year and sold it to his son’s grade school Principal at Ballwin Elementary.

Fifty years and 1,400 houses later, Kelly is still growing his dreams.
