Meet Kelly Giarla, a Realtor with MKB REALTORS® in Roanoke, Virginia. Kelly has a passion for taking care of others. With years of previous experience caring for patients and families in the ICU as a Registered Nurse, she is now driven to continue caring for people by helping with their real estate needs. She prides herself on being a hard worker and compassionate person. Able to work in high stress environments while still focusing on each client’s individual needs are skills that come naturally. Add in confidence, an infectious smile and outgoing personality, and she is sure to put you at ease during any transaction.

Also included in her work experience are 14 years of co-running and working at a sign business in Roanoke. It was during this time that she met and networked with several individuals and companies and got to know even more about what Roanoke Valley has to offer. Having knowledge of the local restaurants, shops, outdoor venues, and museums helps provide another informational resource for her clients, her favorite venue being Dr. Pepper Park in downtown Roanoke where she enjoys concerts all summer.

Kelly spent her youth in Salem and has also lived in Roanoke and Franklin Counties. Living in multiple counties has proven helpful in having insight into all these areas and what they have to offer for her clients. Five years ago, she moved to her dream home in Franklin County, a 110-year-old farmhouse just yearning for restoration. Now blessed with the opportunity to pour life back into this antique structure, she has gained experience with hands-on construction, restoration, and design. She knows how important the right property is to a person. “When you find that perfect home, you just know it, it’s definitely where my heart is.”

Being an extreme animal and nature lover, she enjoys horseback riding, kayaking, fishing, or any other outdoor activity. She can often be found in the fields and barn of her home caring for her horses, chickens, or many goats.

So, whether it’s a condo, family home in a subdivision, hobby farm, lake property, or large acre tract with that historic farmhouse you have been dreaming of restoring, let Kelly Giarla take care of you and your family. She loves meeting new people and can’t wait to talk with you!
