Meghan Kelley, "Be Humble; Be Inquisitive; Be Strategic", Senior Director of Global Operations at eXp Global shares her story on Global Luxury Real Estate Mastermind with Michael Valdes Podcast #177
Meghan Kelley, Senior Director of Global Operations at eXp Global is someone I have known and worked with for over a decade. She has been the leader of my internal global team at eXp and has been one of the key reasons we have been able to expand as quickly as we have because of her organizational skills and business acumen.
More About Meghan Kelley:
Meghan Kelley is currently the Senior Director of Global Operations for eXp Global where she leads the team in opening the brokerage in countries around the world. Meghan is dedicated to helping her team grow both personally and professionally while enjoying an opportunity to show her operational strengths.
Personal and professional goals are oriented around growth for herself, the people around her and giving people in other countries the opportunity to build a business for themselves. Meghan spent 18 years at Realogy, the parent company of six major real estate brands. Eight of those years included operations at Sotheby’s International Realty where she worked with the team to build the US and Non-US transition and servicing department out of the corporate headquarters, eventually becoming the Director of Global Operations there. She then had an opportunity to work for the CEO of the franchise group, with a chance to have a deep understanding of how a franchise business is run at the highest levels. Once that was complete, Meghan was tasked with creating the Recruiting and Retention division for the six brands where she launched a tool to help the franchisees grow. An opportunity to return to working in operations outside of the US came up with eXp Global and then she left her company of 18 years to start a new adventure.
Meghan is driven by growth and the success of herself and others. Her talent for bringing to fruition multiple initiatives at a time has helped her become successful. She is a big picture operations expert who understands the little picture details. She has an ability to read people’s strengths to have their expertise applied to the right areas to get the job done. She can adapt to a multitude of concepts and programs having launched products to thousands of offices involving everything from Social Media to Recruiting to CRM’s using her ability to discover operational inefficiencies while providing solutions and process improvement measures.
You will rarely see Meghan without a smile, she is known for being upbeat and pushing forward through adversity with a positive attitude and will always work to ensure everyone on the team is happy, impactful, and recognized for all their contributions.
Meghan enjoys camping, being outside and pushing herself by doing things outside of her comfort zone, like running (jogging) the New York City Marathon (slowly) in 2017 and backpacking across the Grand Canyon in 2019. She is excited to start planning the next adventure with her friends.
