About Kelly Bryan-Johnson
Kelly Bryan-Johnson’s paternal great-grandfather, C. G. Taylor, was a self-taught aeronautical engineer and aviator, from Rochester, New York, and will be a part of the aviation history books for all time. C. G. Taylor and his brother designed the Taylor Cub and Taylor Craft. Kelly’s Great-grandfather’s planes, are “the longest running production aircraft in the world, also the safest aircraft ever built with only 6 Airworthiness Directives (AD’s), no air frame failures, no spar failures, no wing failures,” for over the last 75 years.
Settling in Tucson, AZ in 1985, the young and gregarious Kelly fell in love with the desert and decided to stay. “If you let it, the desert will grab a hold of you and never let go. All this sunshine, those beautiful mountains and wide-open spaces are 100% addictive. Any memories of a sizzling summer quickly fade when you’re ‘bundled-up’ in a light jacket or shorts most of the winter.”
From large corporations such as Boise Cascade (office products) to Cardinal Heath (healthcare) to Long Realty (real estate), Kelly learned the art of quality customer service and relationship-building. “It has always been and will always be about what’s best for my clients, regardless of the industry!” Like my great grand-father, keeping clients protected and safe as they travel through their transaction and beyond is always priority #1 for Kelly and her team.
Kelly’s mom, Cathie Dahar, decided to get back into real estate after retiring from Tucson Electric Power and starting several successful businesses in Tucson and New Mexico. Cathie figured it was the best way to do what she loves , all things business, help people and as a bonus, get to spend time with with her oldest daughter and best friend. So after a 25 year break, Cathie is back to her entrepreneurial roots.
