Our Story

Laurie Kelly is the City of Belmont’s pioneer Real Estate Agency, commencing business in the area in 1969, before the existence of Belmont Forum Shopping Centre and Belmont Tavern, the land on which stood a dairy farm and wood yard respectively. Working for “General Agency” as a Sales Representative, most of Laurie’s sales were quarter acre land parcels due to the large-scale subdivision stage within Belmont and surrounds at the time. Laurie enjoyed selling the “Australian Dream” of home ownership to people. In 1971 upon the Belmont Forum Shopping Centre’s opening, Laurie opened Belmont’s first-ever Real Estate Agency and was subsequently one of the Forum’s original occupants with it’s first office where Bankwest now stands. Starting with a Receptionist and Laurie, the business steadily grew over the years to a Sales Team of 10 and a Property Management Department of 5. Over the years Belmont’s first real estate agency has evolved into the area’s most established, a multi-generational family business with flagship office located across from the Belmont Forum at 197 Wright Street Belmont.

In 2023 Laurie’s eldest son, multi-award winning Sales Representative Devon became Managing Director and Licencee for Laurie Kelly Real Estate, an industry veteran with the entirety of his 30 year career serving the local area alongside his father, Devon’s vision is to carry on his father’s legacy with a focus on continuous improvement and evolution of the business. Well known among locals and a recognisable figure within the City of Belmont, Devon is aptly referred to as “Mr Belmont” by many and can be spotted at the Forum most days grabbing lunch or shopping. A mainstay within the local area, Laurie Kelly Real Estate now consists of a tight-knit staff of 12 and is one of the most highly regarded boutique agency’s south of the river. Devon attributes such longevity to the intricate area knowledge that comes with the family’s upbringing locally and ability “to tailor selling or rental recommendations to produce the best possible result for our broad client base”.
