Kellen Flanigan

CalBRE # 01485210



I am a real estate agent with Keller Williams Realty in Santa Monica, CA. I joined Keller Williams in December of ’06. I was with Coldwell Banker in Santa Monica for two years prior to that. I am a member of the ALC, the Agent Leadership Council, which is the equivalent of being on the board of a public company. One has to be in the top 20% of the firm and be nominated to this position. I currently am head of the finance committee for our franchise, making sure we lead with revenue, and profit hits are our bottom line. My background is in the area of finance. After graduating from USC, I went to the NY Institute of Finance and followed that with 20 years in the investment-banking arena. I started my own Broker/Dealer firm in the 90’s and grew it to 35 employees with offices in NY and LA. Our burn rate was $240,000/month. I served on the board of the NASD, National Association of Securities Dealers, for three years in our district of Los Angeles. Our clients were all high-net worth individuals and small institutions. Among a myriad of financial transactions, I raised capital for real estate development deals and fell in love with the real estate side of the business. I sold my firm in 2000 and pursued my career in real estate. I enjoy marketing high-quality homes and matching them with the appropriate qualified home buyers. My area of expertise is on the Westside, Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, Santa Monica, Mar Vista/Palm, W. LA and Venice. My first year in the business I worked with Joyce Rey who has been one of the top 10 agents for Coldwell Banker for 30 years. Learning from her, coupled with financial expertise, allows me to serve my clients and negotiate on their behalf regarding their real estate transactions.

Personally, I am married to Rob Stinnett, who is a California General Contractor, and I am the parent of two children, Nicholas and Madison, ages 22 & 23 respectively. Together Rob and I invest, remodel and sell our finished products. We love what we do. I also just did my first triathlon while raising money for leukemia and lymphoma.
