The Kelly Forman Team at Compass

A Long Beach Local who lives for making win-win Real Estate deals, Kelly brings 17 years in Finance, Marketing and Program Management to her Real Estate business, enabling a seamless, high-touch and end-to-end client experience. The decision to buy or sell real estate is wrapped in broader life goals and events. It’s Kelly’s personal mission to help each client articulate their needs, dreams, and drivers, and design a customized plan that delivers bottom-line results. 

Kelly is an expert in the Coastal Communities that comprise the South Shore of Long Island, whether offering deep insights on the attributes of each Condo, Co-op or townhouse, maintaining close relationships with the local business community, or connecting new locals with others sharing similar interests and activities. Unique to waterfront properties are key considerations such as bulkhead maintenance, the impact of saltwater on key utilities, and how to mitigate and manage flood risk while enjoying the beach-year-round lifestyle in the backyard of NYC. Kelly has a consistent track record setting up her clients for a successful and transparent experience. Kelly and her team sold the most Co-Ops in Long Beach in 2021, demonstrating their intimate knowledge of the management companies, boards, and requirements. 

As proven with experience in each domain, Kelly is uniquely positioned to negotiate challenging Seller-Finance terms, creatively connect new construction in concert with the community to fetch record-breaking prices, assume a non-performing listing and relaunch to yield a 10% increase in sale price, analyze investment opportunities, creatively position buyers to win in a seller’s market, leverage unique digital marketing resources to bring the right energy to every listing, and most importantly, to help her Clients Find Joy In the Journey. 

Kelly is joined by her team, equally focused on delivering value and operating with integrity. Together with their clients, they set a course, and navigate every step of the way. 

Kelly holds an MBA in Marketing and Management (Fordham’s Gabelli School of Business), a BS in Psychology (Fordham University), a Product Owner Certification, and an accreditation in Real Estate Staging. 

Outside of Real Estate, you’ll find Kelly riding her beach cruiser up and down the boardwalk, Catamaran Cruising with her partner Ben, Skiing, enjoying live music, and of course spending time with her crazy Boston Terrier, Andre the Giant.
