About Kelly Young, The Platinum Group, REALTORS
Growing up in a military family and living around the world, Kelly found that Colorado Springs was a perfect place for her to call home. With a project management background, her sales and marketing experience, along with a journalism degree, real estate seemed to be a perfect fit. Confirmation of her talent was evident when she began her first year in real estate, receiving Realtor Rookie of the Year. Many other awards and recognitions followed as her business expanded. After launching her real estate business in 1998, her primary focus was mountain property and ranches. Later she expanded her lucrative business to be a top seller of residential properties and Colorado luxury homes in the Pikes Peak region.
Kelly loves bike riding or hiking around our picturesque Colorado trails and parks with her husband and dog, Nyah. She enjoys yoga, cooking, and baking with friends. People find her full of creative energy, loaded with integrity, and enjoy her authentic, fun, and friendly personality. She is committed to her strong network of friends, business associates, and professional real estate organizations such as the Pikes Peak Board of Realtors and Luxury Homes International. Giving back to the Colorado Springs community is a hallmark of her belief system. In the recent past, she served on the Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival Board and currently sits on the Board of Directors for CASA of the Pikes Peak region.

What Our Clients Are Saying
Kelly is so knowledgeable and easy to work with! This is my second time working with her, this time on the seller side. She kept me in the loop at all times and always was my advocate. Her support over the years has meant so much to me. I highly recommend her! Thanks Kelly!
Kelly is AMAZING! We have used Kelly twice and will only use her again. She is honest, available to look at listings quickly in this competition market, professional, and truly cares about her clients. She goes all out on her listings, provides full photos, aerial photos, video, and 3D walk through. Kelly is very detail oriented and understands the legal aspect of selling real estate as much as the marketing. I cannot recommend Kelly enough!!
Kelly Young has helped us sell two homes and we recommend her “super realtor” skills at every opportunity. Kelly is a professional, extremely experienced realtor and we value her opinion. Kelly is a great listener and gets a complete understanding of what is needed and has made us feel like she was looking out for us. She is the best realtor we have ever had, truly!
Kelly is simply the best! We started with a different agent and frankly it didn’t go well. We are so thankful that our paths crossed with Kelly and despite the challenges of a very hot CO market, plus Covid, Kelly understood our needs (sold our CA and TX homes, we’re in a rental here) for equestrian property.
Like many, we were house hunting in Colorado from out of state. We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor than Kelly during the whole process. She listened to exactly what we were looking for and took that into account. Our search perimeters were set up perfectly by her and we were seeing all houses on the MLS that fit our criteria. With the competitive market in CO, when we saw a house we liked, we contacted Kelly and she moved on it fast! When cell service was poor in the areas we were looking, Kelly took extensive videos and pictures so that we were able to put ourselves in the house without being there. She was honest with her assessment of the house and the neighborhood – something we greatly appreciated. After we had our offer accepted, the home inspector she recommended was incredibly knowledgeable about the house and gave us an extensive report and explained what is priority to fix and what is not. Beware, there are some very poor home inspectors out there with the housing boom, but Gary was top notch. Most importantly, after the closing of our new home, which we still adore after several months, Kelly still goes out of her way to reach out to us to make sure we have everything we need and are settling into the area. She has sent housewarming gifts and even connected us with a local friend who knows all the hot fishing spots because she knows my 5-year-old is a fishing fanatic. After closing she could have easily moved onto the next client and forgotten us, but she didn’t. She cares about her people ensuring they have the best home buying experience they can have. We would use her again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Kelly.
Kelly has helped us with two purchases and we could not be happier with our experience. She is everything you could ask for in an agent–responsive, honest, patient and trustworthy. She’s helped us navigate a difficult market in which to buy and has been extremely patient and encouraging throughout. In countless trips to view properties together we’ve grown appreciate her approach and professionalism more and more with each contact. She’s earned our trust and future business by exceeding all expectations.
Kelly was amazing. Our home was not in the best shape, but she helped us sell it for a decent price. I also enjoyed her monthly FYI information for personal and business development.
Kelly has sold two houses for me now within a year. Both are unique mountain properties that seemed to be hard to market for other realtors that I started with on the first property. Kelly KNOWS how to market a property extremely well and thoroughly in all marketing venues. Her friendly easy manner makes her pleasant to work with. She works extremely well with other realtors, appraisers, and all the various service providers–and has a good history and relationship with most all of them. After my first experience with her selling my first house, I would not have engaged anyone else for selling my second house. I have recommended her and her alone to others looking for a good broker.
Kelly Young sold my house for asking price in 2 months! Kelly is extremely professional and dedicated to her clients! She has a fantastic reputation throughout our church community as the “”go to Realtor” to get your house sold! I hired Kelly to sell my house in Colorado Springs because I moved to Phoenix. Kelly did an outstanding job “staging” my house for me. She made one bedroom a boys room with cowboy decorations and the other one full of ballerina decorations! One woman who viewed the house asked if she could keep the decorations if she bought the house! Kelly sponsored an open house every Sunday. The couple that bought the house had met Kelly at an open house. Kelly kept me current on all showings and feedback. Kelly is totally committed to her clients and gives them her full attention! I highly endorse Kelly Young and recommend her to everyone I know who’s looking for a top of the line Realtor!
Kelly is by far the best real estate professional I have ever experienced, and I have had many over a couple of decades. She exceeded all my expectations in every category of service from my initial meeting with her to the final closing on my home. My case was especially difficult since I was out of state during the whole sales process and Kelly took care of all my small and large concerns and details in an amazing fashion. Words cannot express my gratitude, and I cannot say THANK YOU enough.
Suzanne and Kelly took my son and his fiancé under their wings as they are both purchasing their first home and relocating for the military. They were efficient and were able to help us get this deal locked in and closed, all the while supporting us on the ground while we are in other states. Love them!
My husband and I are forever grateful to Kelly for her attention to detail and listening to our needs so that we could find our home in a tight market. As a local to the area she has excellent advice for us regarding location and the nuisances of the different neighborhoods. During times of stress she was always there with calming advice and assistance. With enthusiasm we’d recommend Kelly Young to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in Colorado Springs.
Without hesitation, I would recommend Kelly Ann to anyone needing a realtor. Even when I wasn’t sure I wanted to sell my home, Kelly Ann met with me, gave me a few things to think about, and assured me I would know. She was right, and two years later, she guided me through the selling journey. Selling and buying a house can be chaotic at times and she was there to “talk me off the ledge” several times. She has a keen ability to read people’s needs and always sensed when I was getting nervous or needed more information. She is an outstanding professional with a deep knowledge of the Colorado Springs market and the selling/buying process. She also maintains a comprehensive network of partners and vendors for any necessary repair work that might be required before a house goes on the market. All her advice to me was spot on, and my house sold quickly and at the price we wanted. A friend who recommended Kelly Ann told me “Kelly Ann will work hard for you and always represent your best interests” – that’s what a great realtor does. Kelly Ann is all that and more, and she does it with incredible energy, a wonderful personality, and a big heart for people.
Kelly helped our family transition here to COS from Minnesota. We were searching in a very hot market, living out of state, and unable to be in person. Kelly is extremely knowledgeable about the market, listened to our wants/needs, and helped position us our search. It wasn’t long and we gained strong comfort and trust with her approach, presence, timeliness, communication, always willing to be straight and honest with us about everything. We bought a house sight unseen and have been settled now for many months. We are very happy with our home and appreciated Kelly’s efforts to help us source and secure. She has been in touch frequently demonstrating genuine care for us and has been always willing to help integrate us into our new community. She is salt of the earth with 5 star expertise. Look no further and you will be happy you were fortunate to work with her.
I had the pleasure of working with Kelly on a transaction where I was the loan office representing a buyer on one of her listings. She was always available/responsive and very easygoing, she worked well with the negotiations and was attentive to her client’s needs. I recommend working with her!
