Kelly Corning provides exceptional service and expertise to her real estate clients in Coastal San Diego and Orange County. With exclusive access to her network of industry-related professionals and knowledge of the latest local trends, Kelly creates unique strategies for each client based on their specific goals and lifestyle.

After spending the beginning of her career in the entertainment industry, she moved to coastal Orange County and fell in love with the architecture and topography of the area, as well as the momentum of the burgeoning residential development community. She decided that helping people buy and sell these beautiful homes was what she wanted to do.

With extensive experience in sales and marketing, Kelly is an asset to buyers and sellers alike. She prides herself on the ability to identify her clients greatest wants and lifestyle needs, a skill she attributes to listening closely, interpreting and understanding what her clients are saying, and matching those desires to current real estate trends and market availability.

While she is ambitious, detail-oriented and laser-focused, she is also committed to making your real estate experience a fun one that’s not all about the bottomline. She wants everyone to enjoy the experience and find the end result enhances their overall lifestyle. She appreciates the chance to get to know her clients and their families and how the right home and community can enrich their lives.

“I strive to understand their lifestyle, what they like from a design perspective and how a home can facilitate a richer home life. But, it doesn’t stop there for me: finding the right home isn’t just about the home, it’s about the community and its vibe, the neighborhood and its streets, everything matched to each client’s specific needs.”

Kelly is a resident of Encinitas and is connected to her community through numerous philanthropic endeavors. Her market insight and love for San Diego has resulted in successful sales for first time home buyers and veteran investors alike.


  • "Kelly worked tirelessly to get us our dream home! We are almost all moved in and can't thank her enough for everything she did to get us this house that we love. She was an excellent resource for area/demographics, extremely responsive and always fought hard for our interests. I would highly recommend working with her to sell or purchase your home!"

    Buyer 2017
  • "Thanks to Kelly, we were able to finally find an amazing first home with a relatively smooth process. As first time homebuyers, she walked us through each step of the process and was very attentive to our wants with an extremely fast response time. She took our preferences into consideration, but also introduced us to other possibilities, which we eventually went with. Kelly's negotiation skills are top notch and she is very direct and down to business. She never once hesitated to convey our concerns/questions with the other agent. Kelly is very knowledgable about the entire process and can also suggest some contractors to help fix issues when is comes time. Thanks, Kelly, for everything!"

    Buyer 2017
  • We lost the first two houses we put offers on due to the first not appraising, and the second, getting outbid. Kelly was so compassionate and professional with the first difficult seller, and the second where there was a bidding war. Kelly then worked her magic and actually found us a third house that was our perfect home, actually working out better for us than the first two would have, and successfully negotiated a great price for us. We were under a big time crunch and Kelly never faltered. She was ON it! Kelly has a wonderful sense of humor and stepped up every time. We LOVE her!

    Home Buyer Del Mar 2016
  • Kelly was amazing from start to finish. Not only did she go above and beyond to sell our condo (sold in 1 week!!) but she also helped us purchase our new house one month later and stay in the community that we loved so much. She is professional, energetic, fun and she keeps her line of communication open 7 days a week. I always felt like she was available when I needed her. I highly recommend her services and will continue to work with her in the future.

  • When we moved here from Canada 7 yrs ago Kelly helped us find our home in San Diego. She knew the area well and was able to find us our dream home. She listened carefully to our needs and did not waste our time.

    Kelly is extremely professional and has a warm personality which made it enjoyable to spend time with her. Five yrs later we had to move to Orange County. We listed our home with her and feel we got the best price. Kelly also knows Orange County well after living there for many years. Again she found us the perfect neighborhood and home.

    We would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.

  • When I was in the market for an investment property, Kelly did an excellent job of finding just the right place and was able to immediately get me cash flow in for my purchase. I gave her a wide area in which I would be willing to buy and she knew the ins and outs of all those communities and gave me a lot of helpful advice on which areas would be the best for my investment.

  • We were new to North County San Diego and didn’t know really what neighborhood would fit our soon to be growing family best. Kelly was really patient with us and allowed us to explore a lot of different neighborhoods until we found the perfect match. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and was readily available for any questions we had (and being first time home buyers we had plenty!) We feel very fortunate to have found our forever home and are very thankful for Kelly Corning is leading us to it!
