Being a real estate agent is not just about selling a house. It’s about cultivating relationships with clients, listening to their needs, providing advice, and, ultimately, delivering results that improve their lives. This is what Kelly Hopkins built her career on, and it’s what she continues to do 20 years later. To her, clients aren’t just buyers and sellers; they’re beloved neighbors and friends.
Kelly has a Bachelor of Science in business and recreation administration with an emphasis in marketing. Before becoming an agent, the Bay Area native had an impressive career in the sports industry, working with notable franchises such as the Orlando Magic. Although she loved her profession, Kelly had an interest in real estate and decided that her marketing, sales experience, and love for meeting new people would be a perfect fit for the industry. She’s been a Bay Area Realtor® ever since.
Through her excellent customer service, strong work ethic, and high drive to succeed, Kelly has become a leader in the Bay Area market. Some of her achievements include earning the Pinnacle Award from the Bay East Association of Realtors® and being ranked in the top 25 agents in the U.S. at her previous brokerage.
When she’s not working with her clients, Kelly spends time in Newark with her husband and two children. She loves traveling, reading, gardening, interior design, and all water sports, especially scuba diving and paddleboarding. Kelly is also an active volunteer at the local high school and a supporter of Shriners Hospital.
I have purchased, listed, and sold several properties with Kelly. She is very professional and goes beyond the call of duty. I would recommend Kelly for any real estate need. Kelly knows what to do and does excellent work. AAAA+
AMAZING PROFESSIONAL SERVICE.
I have been working with Kelly since 2008 buying and selling multiple homes and every single time she has hit it out of the park with her amazing professional service. Kelly goes above and beyond to ensure your either getting the best deal buying the home or the highest price when selling. There is no one else that I would trust with my Real Estate needs other than Kelly Hopkins.
KELLY HELPED US BUY OUR DREAM HOME!
Kelly helped us buy our dream home! In todays competitive market — people paying over asking price, others offering all cash — my wife and I were not confident we’d be able to buy our dream home, especially since we didn’t have a ton of cash to put down. Kelly worked her magic and made it all happen. Even after the successful purchase of our home, she still continues to be helpful and a great source of knowledge of the area.

Extremely satisfied! Kelly is likely the most neighborhood savy realtor in the Newark area. She quickly sees what is needed to stage and present your home, candidly saying what furniture should stay and what needs to go. She then adds accents from her deep warehouse of furniture and accessories. Kelly has the pulse of both supply and demand, as well as buyer dynamics and interest rate factors. She is a steadfast lady who will absolutely ensure you get the best price for your home whether you are a seller or buyer.
KELLY HELPED US BUY OUR FIRST EVER HOME
Kelly helped us buy our first ever home in Newark in 2017. As first-time buyers, my husband and I knew very little about the home-purchasing process and had already spent 4+ frustrating months prior with a different agent who wasn’t giving us enough guidance in home searches or the bidding process. We met Kelly during a visit to one of her open houses and spent over an hour sharing our frustrations with her. Quickly, we realized that Kelly was very knowledgeable about the Newark area and gave us more useful advice in that one hour than our other agent had given us in the last 4 months. We switched to Kelly as our agent and she immediately started showing us homes that were more appropriate to our tastes and in the right neighborhoods. She was invested in finding us the right home and guided us through each step so patiently. We closed on our home just 4 weeks after we started working with Kelly! We absolutely loved working with her and recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the Newark/Fremont area.
