Kiley grew up just outside of Indianapolis in northwestern Shelby County. She is a daughter and granddaughter to builders, contractors, and independent business men and women. From an early age Kiley took an interest in mathematics, architecture, and business, which later drove her to earn her Bachelor of Science in Finance from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, with a focus in economics. After college she started a career in accounting by doing freelance work for several small businesses, predominantly in residential and commercial building trades. After helping her husband Brandon start up their real estate company, she quickly became absorbed in real estate and therefore decided to get her Indiana Real Estate license in 2008.
While caring for her two young children and making sure they received her personal upbringing in their early years, Kiley acted as an office manager, accountant, and the behind-the-scenes transaction assistant for The Cooper Real Estate Group. In 2014, with her children in full-day school, she was finally able to make real estate her full time career. Kiley’s background in business and finance allow her to provide clients with the best understanding of the market in terms of their own personal finances. She believes her clients offer relationships that will continue to grow for life, and as she and Brandon say, each transaction is done with a little “Country Honor,” to focus on the people. She’s staunchly professional, yet laid back, relatable and easy going, even in the toughest environments – as a mom of two crazy young children, there’s nothing she hasn’t seen or dealt with.
Family is everything for Kiley. Her heart is in the outdoors, and she loves enjoying it with her husband and children. Whether she’s cheering her daughter on the soccer field, watching her son’s dirt bikes races, backpacking, camping, or trail riding, Kiley can’t get enough fresh air and time with her family. She’s the Team-Mom on the ball diamonds, the one packing the emergency kit for hikes, and the person rolling out the family sleeping bags for the drive-in theater. As Brandon says, “When the family just wants to hurry up and go have fun, she’s what makes it possible.”
