Kelly Basheer Garrett is a lifelong Washingtonian and seasoned REALTOR® in the Metro DC area. She holds licenses in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia, and is a Certified Relocation Consultant who enjoys working with clients in all phases of their home transitions. 

Whether you are buying, selling or renting, just starting out, upsizing or downsizing, moving into or out of the DMV, Kelly looks forward to applying her superior knowledge to help you achieve your goals. She is a very astute, genuinely caring professional who enjoys connecting with people, and goes the extra mile to see their needs through to total satisfaction.

Immersed in the building industry during her childhood, this inspired her interest in real estate and has afforded her valuable insight. After attending Langley High School in McLean, Kelly went on to earn a B.A. in Urban Planning from Virginia Tech and a Master of Business Administration in Real Estate from American University. She began her career in commercial real estate finance, and then worked for a family-owned software development company for 28 years before entering residential brokerage in 2008.

Kelly grew up in Arlington and McLean, VA, as an adult moved to her first home in Kalorama, DC, spent a decade in Chevy Chase, DC and has lived in Chevy Chase, MD for the past 18 years. She is married with three children she proudly raised in the local area. Her son graduated from the Landon School and her older daughter graduated from the National Cathedral School. Her younger daughter currently attends NCS. When not busy working, Kelly can often be found volunteering in her community and walking about town with her beloved dog, a Samoyed named “Alta.”

" We received the highest level of service we’ve experienced in the several times we’ve worked with agents. Kelly explained everything carefully and worked constantly to both sell our house and find us a new one. Our house sold almost immediately after going on the market for well over the list price."
