We’re excited to announce that Kelli Lazzaro is the newest member of the Landfall Realty sales team. While she may be new to Landfall Realty, she’s no stranger to the Landfall community. In fact, she probably knows more about the Landfall lifestyle than most of the real estate professionals in the Wilmington area. That’s because she served as Membership and Marketing Director of the Country Club of Landfall for the last 15 years, helping produce a dramatic increase in membership and overseeing its emergence as one of the premier private clubs in North Carolina and the entire Southeast.
“Kelli is a great addition to our team,” says Ken Kirkman, Landfall Realty General Manager. “She knows practically everybody in the community. But more importantly they know her. They trust her. And they know how dedicated she is to this community and how hard she’s worked on its behalf.”
Kelli is a Massachusetts native who came south to attend UNC-Wilmington. Until earning her real estate license, she spent her entire professional career in private club management. “Real estate is the perfect move for me,” Kelli said. “I enjoy working with people and helping them fulfill their dreams. I’m so grateful to Landfall Realty for this opportunity.”
Kelli and her husband, Andy, have two daughters and two “crazy” dogs. They enjoy an active coastal lifestyle – boating, kayaking, and just relaxing on the beach.
