Kelly’s Bio

"Your personal guide to Adirondack real estate"!

After being drawn to Lake Placid by the 1980 Winter Olympic Games, Kelly decided to no longer be a visitor, but rather a resident of Lake Placid!

Kelly has over 20 years of experience in real estate, including being a buyer's and seller's agent in the residential market, experience in the commercial market, and as a residential developer.

As a buyer's and seller's agent, Kelly will provide clients with a tailored experience catered towards finding your dream property or representing you in selling your home. Check out Kelly's current listings by clicking the tab above! Under the "recently sold" tab, you will notice Kelly recently sold Ledgerock Lodge, one of his developments!

In terms of commercial, most recently, Kelly played a crucial role in the successful negotiation and relocation of a nationwide franchise- Subway! With this transaction taking over 2 years to finalize- dedication and determination are clearly two of Kelly's top qualities. In other words, he is working hard till the job is done!

Kelly has also owned a number of commercial businesses in Lake Placid. In the 1980s and '90s, Kelly was the owner of ENCORE, a screenprinting company based in Lake Placid. Kelly was also the owner of everyone's favorite corner store...The Corner Store!

Kelly has also developed a number of residential properties in the Lake Placid area. To date, he has developed 5 residential properties. Kelly has also acquired, "flipped", and sold a waterfront residence on Chateaugay Lake, as well as a townhouse located in the Whiteface Club and Resort. Three of Kelly's residential developments belong to the small number of non-waterfront properties in Lake Placid valued at over 1 million dollars.

A lover of sports, he is an active member of the Lake Placid sports community and has volunteered countless hours in support of youth athletic programs. He is also the former men's hockey and women's soccer coach at Paul Smiths College.

Kelly and his wife, Colleen, a native of Lake Placid, are blessed with 5 children and 5 grandchildren.

Following in her father's footsteps, Jillian, Kelly's youngest child, is also a salesperson at Merrill L. Thomas, Inc! Jillian and Kelly have been known to occasionally join forces on real estate endeavors, including working as a team with clients to provide you with a unique and attentive experience!

Kelly looks forward to the opportunity of working for you and addressing any and all of your real estate needs!

  • Class Act


    We LOVED Kelly as our Realtor!  We just wish we would have chosen him 15 months ago!  I knew who Kelly was, but didn’t really know him.  Kelly is a class act and we have already told a handful of friends in Lake Placid how much Kelly did for us!  You have a gem up there in beautiful Lake Placid…don’t ever let him go!  Thank you very much!

  • Time, attention, & effort


    Kelly went above and beyond my expectations to get the house sold and keep the ball rolling.  Kelly spent the time, attention, and effort to make sure all of the important issues were addressed which resulted in a succesful and timely closing.  Would highly recommend him to all future buyers and sellers!

  • The Best!

    Paul & Susan B.

    Kelly was terrific through all phases of the home buying process. As long distance buyers, we simply could not have found and purchased this home without him. Kelly really helped us get the most out of our limited time and familiarity with the area. He listened to our wants and needs, but also opened our eyes to other possibilities that in the end proved to be a much better fit for our family. Kelly’s attention to details, negotiating skills, and knowledge of the local resources to help us manage our home from afar have made all the difference. Highly recommended!

  • Home purchase

    David and Barbara L.

    We Just purchased a home in Elizabethtown, NY with the help of Kelly. A lot of the communication was long distance and he was always readily accessible. With his help we were able to wrap up the purchase in one month. His personal touch was very much appreciated. Thank you Kelly.

  • Patience and Attention

    Sharon & Chris M.

    Kelly was fantastic as our buyer’s agent! He paid very careful attention to all of our questions and went above and beyond in gathering information for us. We are so happy that we had Kelly to guide us through the process with care and patience and attention to all the details. We couldn’t be happier with our purchase!
