Kelly Cameron
Director, Mortgage Broker and Finance Strategist – Fortitude Valley

“Everything is possible. If you don’t ask, you don’t get.”

From a very young age, Kelly has worked extremely hard to build herself into the amazing woman that she is today. Kelly’s personal experiences are what drives her mission of helping people buy houses and achieve financial security through real estate investing. She’s extremely passionate about this mission and will fight for her clients’ success every step of the way.

Kelly grew up living with her parents, uncle and siblings in their grandparent’s home. At age 10, her grandparents’ house was sold and her family were forced to rent. After seeing the immense amount of upheaval and emotional stress that this caused her usually stoic grandmother in particular, she made the decision that she was going to eventually buy her grandparents a home of their own.

She followed the well-trodden path of obtaining an undergraduate degree and graduate diplomas in business. Straight out of university, she took up an opportunity to work for a merchant bank in Seoul, South Korea. Working in a country that was in the midst of a financial crisis was eye-opening, and rewarding, but her passion to work in finance and help people on a personal level led her back to Australia to work for one of the big four banks.

At 25, Kelly purchased her first home (which her grandparents lived in for years).  She cared for her grandfather during the last months of his life while she was also completing a course in property development. Kelly had made him a promise before he passed away that she would use her expertise to help people in need and she has kept this promise to this day by continuing to put her heart and soul into her work as well as her charitable endeavors.

On her 30th Birthday, Kelly sold her first mortgage broking business and moved to Sydney with the goal of early retirement. However, this lasted just 6 weeks before she had the itch to get back into assisting people to secure their financial futures. At this point, ‘Get Real Finance’ was born and has since relocated back to Brisbane. The business has blossomed into a close-knit team of 10 staff (and counting) who all share Kelly’s passion for personalised service.

Not only is she an awe-inspiring business woman, Kelly is also an amazing mother to her daughter Mackenzie. Kelly has raised Mackenzie to be a bright and talented young woman who definitely does not lack any character.
