Meet Our Team
Kelly Willey, Broker, Owner, REO TEam Leader, SRES, SFR, Realtor, CSSA
I first became licensed in Maryland in 1988 and quickly rose to become one of the top Realtors in the greater Baltimore area. My specialty was in selling and marketing foreclosed homes, which lead to me winning “Rookie of the Year” in 1998 with Coldwell Banker in Baltimore.
In 1998 I completed the Florida brokerage classes and then opened my brokerage, Coco Plum Real Estate in 2004. In 2008 we added our property management division where we manage luxury vacation rentals throughout the middle Florida Keys.
In 2010 I earned my SFR, Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource designation. Through hard work and aggressive marketing of REO properties, the results were quick sales with increased profit for my Asset Managers and Owners.
In 2012 Coco Plum Real Estate was certified with the state of Florida as a Women Owned Business.
When I’m not busy serving the middle Florida Keys real estate market, I can be found lending a hand with church activities, reading, swimming, walking the beach and serving as Director or Micah Missions. Micah Missions serves the needs of the very poor in the Dominican Republic and Haitian refugees. I’ve been married to her husband Jim for over 20 years and they have four grown children, one grandbaby, Oliver and a Pomeranian named Zeke.
If you have a property in the Florida Keys that needs to be sold, whether a private owner, bank or asset manager, you'll benefit from my highly professional services and decades of real estate experience.

Mark Gable, REALTOR®, Captain, Sales Associate
My wife and I moved from Gainesville, GA to the Florida Keys to pursue our dream of living waterfront on the ocean. We spent our summers here each year and fell in love with Marathon and the Florida Keys. Laurie and I have been educators for over 40 years combined. I was a high school technology teacher and baseball coach. Laurie currently teaches fourth grade at Stanley Switlik Elementary here in Marathon. After arriving in Marathon, I earned my U.S. Coast Guard Master Captain license and enjoy taking friends, family, and clients out to enjoy the beautiful water here in the Keys. I specialize in real estate tours by boat, so if you have never seen the Keys by water, I would be more than happy to take you! I’m sure you will fall in love with the Keys like we did. I would be honored to assist you in buying or selling your home here in the Florida Keys, and promise you integrity, detail, enthusiasm, and the heart of a teacher.
