Kelly Galvin


Welcome, as a Broker Associate with Century 21 Affiliated, I am here to help you with your Southern California real estate needs.

I have lived in Southern California for over 40 years. I have a Bachelor’s of Science degree from the University of California, San Diego in Economics and Mathematics. I have worked as a business consultant, strategic planner, and negotiator in the corporate world. I enjoy utilizing these business skills and my high customer care standards to provide my clients the highest level of service. I continuously exceed my client's expectations and I have received excellent reviews and a 5-star rating from all of my clients.

I cover all of Coastal Orange County, specifically San Clemente, where my family and I have resided for the last 20 years.


If you're looking for trustworthy, honest and knowledgeable with Kelly and Ashton. Both Kelly and Ashton were extremely communicative throughout the process of selling our home. In this challenging market, they were not only able to get us above market value, but made the process stress free and were transparent with us..which as a seller, is very comforting for such a big transaction. Thanks you two for everything!

We just closed on our San Clemente home recently and we are so thoroughly pleased with Kelly Galvin as our Realtor and with her talented colleague Ashton! They guided us through a rapidly changing market and kept us moving through the process until our wonderful buyer emerged. For integrity, professionalism, confidence and sensitivity to our needs Kelly and Ashton made our experience a joy! Many thanks!

If I could give 10 stars I would! Kelly is the best! This is the second property Kelly and Ashton have helped us sell and we couldn't be happier with the results. They listened to our concerns and feedback and were always available. Our property was unique and they worked hard to find us just the right buyer in this difficult market. They are honest, ethical and hard working. Couldn't ask for more!

Working with Kelly and Ashton was just so easy! They were effortless and not pushy while still encouraging us to see houses that we wouldn’t have seen or gone to look at. They’ve really been in it for the long haul with us as we’re pretty picky and took a long time to decide on a location and a house. They spent so long helping us find what was right for our family and never pressured us to move faster than we were ready for. They’ve been so helpful going above and beyond helping us with our research and our timelines. We felt heard and guided the whole time. They were never salesy and went out of their way to make this home purchase happen for us 🙂

Ashton and Kelly were amazing to work with and helped us find the perfect house. They are expert communicators and very knowledgeable which made the whole process easy and much less stressful. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell house in the future.

Truly an incredible team! As a first time home owner, I was in need of a lot of hand holding, explaining and patience. It came in abundance! It's a wild market out there, but with Kelly and Ashton, I felt like I was completely taken care of, heard and respected. You can tell honesty and professionalism is incredibly important to them. I'm more grateful than I can ever express to them for finding me my dream home!

Last week we closed a sale of our listing with Kelly after only being on the market for about a week, and at full asking price. She is remarkably skilled in knowing the San Clemente market and how best to market a property for the maximum exposure. Her extensive experience in marketing and planning really makes a difference. In addition, she is a pleasure to work with. She and her team were always available to answer questions and assist with any issues that might arise in a real estate situation, and in a timely manner. Whether selling or buying I sincerely recommend Kelly Galvin of Century 21 Award Realty, of San Clemente.

I interviewed quite a few realtors looking for someone to who had the best strategy in pricing and timing. Kelly Galvin recommended pricing our home $100,000 over what the other realtors had suggested. She understood the value of our home, our upgrades, the current market and knew with complete confidence she could get this price. She proved to be right, we received multiple offers $100,000 over asking. Not only was she brilliant in pricing and timing, she was also very kind and patient with us, as this was our first experience in selling a home. She explained in detail all the steps and helped us process along the way, which is invaluable! I couldn't recommend her enough.

I would highly recommend using Kelly Galvin and her associate Ashton Sheridan if you are thinking of selling or buying a home. I've just closed escrow for the second piece of property, and it went very smoothly for both homes. I appreciated their knowledge and them always keeping me informed of the status.

Kelly and Ashton are an amazing team. They provided selling and renting strategy options, communicated extremely well, kept us completely up to date, and were very thorough. The extensive experience they have was incredibly valuable and helped us navigate a quickly changing market.

Kelly was highly recommended to us by a friend who lives locally. We are from the Seattle area and were looking for a home in San Clemente. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were not able to travel down to California as often as we would have liked to preview homes. Kelly and her assistant, Ashton, did a great job in keeping us abreast of anything new that came on the market. They were able to set up several virtual tours and even included a tour of the surrounding area so we could get a feel for the location. After many texts, emails, phone calls and virtual tours, we were able to narrow our focus, fly down to preview several homes, and make an offer on our forever home. Kelly and Ashton were patient (we were a party of 6 during the home tours!) resourceful, and very professional. They were able to execute the transaction quickly and sealed the deal allowing us to fly back to Seattle three days later. We would highly recommend Kelly, Ashton and their team to anyone looking for a new home.
