Rob was raised in the West Island of Montreal where he played competitive hockey and baseball, but competed at Provincial levels in swimming and water polo. After completing High School, Rob attended College at age 16 for Business Administration. With hopes of following in his father’s footsteps in Arboriculture, Rob moved to Toronto to further his studies.

After working in many specialized units over that period, Rob received over 25 commendations for ‘heroic’ and ‘highly intelligent’ police work. Rob left a decorated Policing career to pursue his true passion, that of Real Estate. As described above, a lifetime of over-achieving, commitment to excellence and a competitive edge has made Rob one of the top realtors in Canada.
Rob’s proven tenacity, obsession with real estate, market knowledge, comprehension, and people skills has allowed him to be ranked within the Top 1% in Canada throughout his real estate career of over 18,000 agents. (National Chairman’s Club) Rob has a network of support staff, but is proud of his hands on approach to personally handle every aspect of every sale or purchase, from the smallest to the largest detail of the transaction. His philosophy is to put his clients first.
Rob loves working with people and as such has built a business of referrals and repeat clientele and there is no greater compliment in business!
"I cannot express how impressed I was with Rob Kelly and his team. Within one week, my condo was listed, viewed and sold! He exceeded my expectations"
Selling your home is a stressful endeavor. Besides the fact that it is the place your family lives and creates memories, it is (for most people), the most valuable item a person owns and it can all be very overwhelming. Rob Kelly and his team at Royal Le Page took all that away. From the first moment he came to meet us we felt comfortable that we had made the right choice and he was always available to answer any questions. Rob is extremely knowledgeable and very trustworthy, he will tell you how it is and listens to your thoughts and ideas. The presentation of the offers was stressful as well, but Rob took the reigns, explained everything to us and handled everything in a very professional manner. Our home went on the market, we held offers for 6 days, and we received 14 offers with a selling price of over 126% of asking!! We want to thank his whole team for their help, patience, guidance, great communication and kindness as we muddled through this process. We will tell everyone we know to use Rob Kelly and his team for their real estate needs and any opportunity in the future we have to work with him again, we definitely will. Thank you!!!

The journey to sell our home actually started several years ago. We called in the local expert in the Trelawny neighbourhood (Rob Kelly) for some suggestions on things we could do in advance to maximize what we could get when we sold. Rob also provided the names of several contractors we could work with that wouldn’t break the bank. Family circumstances changed and we landed up staying a few more years than expected but it give us the chance to enjoy some of the changes we had made. When it came time this spring to put our house on the market we talked and interviewed 4 agents. Rob came out head and shoulders above everyone else. He knew the area and the changing market. He laid out a strategy and we put our trust in him. And he didn’t disappoint. Despite the quickly evolving market we had 6 offers and sold well above asking. He has also assisted in dealing with a post closing issue and has been in close contact with the buyer’s agent. We have been very pleased to have worked with Rob over these years and he has helped us transition to our new home during a very tumultuous time for the Real Estate market.
