"...I knew that I had to figure out how to work my love for local character homes into a career..."
As partner and licensed Realtor on the Tracy King Team, in association with Compass, Keely Myres demonstrates poise, expert knowledge, and a penchant for collaboration to all who perform under her leadership. An Eagle Rock native who brings over a decade’s worth of experience representing the Northeast neighborhoods of Los Angeles, Keely is the team’s go-to-person when it comes to overseeing all the details of a transaction, whether that means getting a house ready and launched on the market or helping buyers plan their move into a new home.
Armed with a sense of humor and a desire to see the world, Keely chose to pursue a degree in Communications, Media and Popular Music from the University of Liverpool, England. Her experience moving to a different country to attend college would later prove invaluable in her real estate career as it taught her to relate to people who are trying to establish a home outside of where they originally grew up, as well as connect with individuals from all walks of life. Upon returning to California and re-planting her roots in Eagle Rock, Keely began to renovate her family’s 1920s duplex, an undertaking that served as the catalyst to her career in real estate.
"Restoring my family’s duplex to its former glory was such a fun and satisfying project for me and sparked my passion for bringing old homes back to life...I knew that I had to figure out how to work my love for local character homes into a career," recalls Keely.
Fast-forward to present day and Keely is happily helping clients realize their house goals - whether that's purchasing their first home, seeing the potential in a fixer, or guiding them through the selling process so they can get to their next life phase. The independent self-starter is a natural when it comes to the storytelling process, as evident by her thoughtful approach to generating buzz around each home the team represents. Keely’s dedication ensures that a client’s property is exposed in its best light to the widest audience possible so that it can attract the ideal buyer.
When she's not making sure all the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed, Keely enjoys hiking with her rescue pup, checking out the nearest tiki bar, and listening to live music (especially if there's a horn section involved). She is perpetually planning her next trip (at the top of her long list of destinations that she’d like to travel to is Kenya, Italy, Southeast Asia, and the wine region of Mexico), or looking for the next vintage home to restore (check out her most recent project here).
