Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates is pleased to welcome Jeff and Kelli Ward to our dedicated team. Two of Jackson Hole’s top-performing real estate brokers, the Wards’ extensive experience and community involvement add even greater depth of professionalism, leadership and client service to the region’s leading brokerage.
Jeff and Kelli join Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates with an impressive record of success. The couple has been involved in more than $500 million of transactions in and around Jackson Hole. Both are actively involved in the community, including Rotary, the Teton Literacy Center and Jackson Hole Therapeutic Riding.
“We are delighted to join Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates and Christie’s International Real Estate,” Jeff says. “This company is at the forefront of the industry, not only locally but also on a national level. This move allows us to offer even greater service to our clients and to stay at the front of the latest tools and technologies.”
“As the real estate industry continues to evolve, we want to be continually ahead of the curve, providing our clients with the very best experience,” he adds. “For those reasons, Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates was an obvious choice.”
Jeff started his career in Jackson Hole in 1995 after trading the beaches of California for the mountains of Wyoming. His roots here run deep. In the 1940s, his grandparents managed the Jenny Lake Lodge in Grand Teton National Park, and Jeff regularly visited the area with his family growing up.
After a successful career in hotel management, Jeff transitioned into real estate, bringing a unique professionalism to his work. Along with Kelli, Jeff was a founding member of Teton Village Realty, which became the fastest growing brokerage in Teton County. In 2018, he was named the Teton Board of Realtors’ Realtor of the Year.
Originally from Georgia, Kelli developed a love for Jackson Hole during family vacations and working seasonally in the valley during college. After graduating from Valdosta State University with a B.S. in Speech and Language Pathology, Kelli permanently relocated to Jackson and began a real estate career in 2001.
After serving as an assistant to one of the valley’s top producers, Kelli was later named Operations Manager for Real Estate of Jackson Hole. Along with Jeff, she would later help found Teton Village Realty.
An avid equestrian, Kelli grew up riding and competing in horse shows nationally and internationally. An active member of the Jackson Hole community, Kelli volunteers for Jackson Hole Therapeutic Riding Association and Teton Literacy Center and is the past Secretary for the Teton Board of Realtors.
We are thrilled to welcome Jeff and Kelli to the Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates’ family.
