2020 CYPN of the Year Kate Kelley
Colorado Association of REALTORS® honors Kate Kelley as Young Professional of the Year
Kate Kelley, broker at WK Real Estate in Boulder, Colo., was recently awarded the “Gus Williams Colorado Young Professional network REALTOR® of the Year” during the Colorado Association of REALTORS® (CAR) 2020 Virtual Fall Forum.
This award honors an individual who exemplifies leadership and has a strong commitment to the Young Professional network, as well as raising the bar for success both in their community and business.
Kate has a passion to lead and serve. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Boulder Area REALTOR® Association and is a dedicated YPN member within her network. Kate is the 2020 President of Women’s Council of REALTORS® North Metro Denver. Kate also does so much for her community; She is a volunteer delivery driver at the Coal Creek Meals on Wheels and she hosts an annual shoe drive benefiting Soles 4 Souls, where they have collected over 4,000 pairs in four years.
In 2019, CAR began donating $500 to a nonprofit of the winner’s choosing. Kate selected Coal Creek Meals on Wheels to receive a $500 donation as it is a mission close to her heart.
“I have been volunteering with (Coal Creek Meals on Wheels) for probably 3 or 4 years. It’s been a wonderfully rewarding experience,” said Kate during her virtual award ceremony. “They served more than 42,000 meals in 2019 and they’ve seen a large uptick in need from the community since the beginning of Covid. Before Covid hit, they served 100-115 meals a day, and they’re up to 175 to 200 meals a day. They’re in great need of more dollars and volunteers and that is something that I know the REALTOR® family is incredibly passionate about.”
“Congratulations, Kate. We are extremely proud of you and so honored to have you be a part of our REALTOR® family,” said Siân Murphy, 2020 CYPN Chair and 2018 CYPN of the Year.
