About Us

Rich in history and drama, the Kelly family forefathers came to Australia with the Second Fleet in 1790. Family owned and run since 1907, Kellys Property - formerly Kelly & Sons Real Estate, owes its origin to William A. Kelly (pictured), the grandfather of current Managing Director Rowen Kelly.

William was a prominent and colourful figure in the NSW Central West community and founded his stock & station and real estate agency in Parkes, NSW in 1907. William’s sons Ken and Vic helped their father in the family business, where they mastered the skills and expertise required in real estate while learning the importance of building a reputation based on competent and honest fair trading. Ken with his wife Eunice relocated the family business from Parkes to Newtown, after Ken returned from World War II as a result of being wounded in action on the Kokoda Trail. Ken and Eunice were then joined by their sons Rowen and Victor after completing their education at Trinity Grammar.

Kellys Property has seen many developments since its initial inception. During the booming 1980s, Kellys expanded the business to 16 branch offices with some 150 staff members. A decade or so later the company streamlined their exposure and refocused upon their founding principles of personalised service and outstanding results.

Back in their spiritual Newtown home, the company now consist of 23 dedicated and experienced team members. In 2010, Rowen with his wife Adele reinvented the Kellys brand to better reflect the new century and technological advances and created a new logo, website and training methodology and injected fresh, new talent into the business. Combine this with Kellys’ familiar faces, genuine experience and true local knowledge and you’re in “Kelly Country".

Today, Kellys Property has developed into a major independent agency specialising in the inner city/inner west suburbs of Sydney. We have seen and been a part of the changing demographic face of the area and helped shape the changes which have seen these traditional suburbs become fashionable and highly sought-after.

Kellys Property is a multi-faceted agency serving the needs of investors, property consumers and corporate clients alike. With its proud reputation and commitment to the growth of the community, nobody knows the local area like the Kellys Property Team - ‘let our experience be your advantage.’
