Kelly Fry is a Realtor® who is also a Chartered Accountant. She is originally from Montreal where she completed her Bachelor of Commerce and Graduate Diploma in Public Accountancy at McGill University. Her love for numbers has made her a natural at analyzing real estate deals.
Kelly ran her own clothing business for 10 years after she left her tax position in public practice. It was during that time that she ventured into real estate investing. After reading the book Rich Dad Poor Dad, she started taking real estate investment classes.
Kelly went from building a real estate portfolio of 4 properties to almost 50 properties within 4 years. In her early years as an investor, one of her most creative deals was the acquisition of a $1 million dollar condo converted building in Red Deer at wholesale with only $12,000 down and she retailed out most of the units and joint ventured on the others.
In 2009, she began working as a paid mentor for Rich Dad Education and mentored over 200 students one on one across Canada.
In 2011 she got her real estate license and started working as an investment realtor with Keller Williams Elite. She was awarded Rookie of The Year and never looked back. She has been in the top 10% of Greater Vancouver’s realtors since 2014.
In 2013, she taught Creative Financing in Calgary and Toronto for Rich Dad Education but then decided that her time was better served locally selling real estate to investors.
As the demand grew for her investment realtor expertise, she grew an investment team which now consists of 13 people, of which 9 are agents or in training to become agents.
She finished 2019 as the TOP SALES AGENT out of 320 realtors in her market centre and with her team finished number 20 in Canada for units sold with Keller Williams.
During the last few years she has been actively investing and has grown her portfolio to almost 150 doors with the acquisition of 5 apartment buildings in Chilliwack, Maple Ridge, Mission, Abbotsford and Cloverdale in the last 4 years.
She also acquired commercial space for her team with no money down so that they would have the space that the brokerage could not give them.
Her latest passion is air bnb rentals in different areas locally so that she can teach her clients how to do the same.

In November 2014 they completed construction on their first 20-unit, purpose-built rental apartment building: Roberts Landing. Their second building, the 30-unit Roberts Place, followed. In 2019, they completed their 63-unit purpose-built rental development, Hockley Corners, and then sold their three buildings to a REIT. In all cases, Rick and Cheri set up limited partnerships to make the projects happen. They now have additional developments underway in both Langford and Esquimalt.
Rick is the author of two books, What Is Stopping You? and 18 Holes to Your Goals. He also contributed to Ozzie’s book Real Estate Action 2.0. Rick is an entertaining speaker, who has a knack for doing impersonations.
