Kelly, Realtors, headed by Leah Cox, Owner/Broker and Legacy Land and Ranches, led by Owner/Founder Eric Williams, have joined forces to bring new meaning to the term Full-Service Brokerage.

These two hometown leaders entered an agreement in November which brings the rural land market expertise of Williams, Legacy Land and Ranches, and its agents, under the brokerage umbrella of Kelly, Realtors. When asked why now is a good time to become part of the Kelly, Realtors Family of Brands, Williams said, “The rural land market represents two primary emerging markets: 1) the long-term rural landowner who, because of the work required to maintain the land, or the desire to be close to family, has decided it is time to move into the city, and 2) the city dweller who wants to take advantage of the freedom available when you own your own land.”

“As specialists in the rural market, Legacy Land and Ranch agents understand the complexities of selling and purchasing land. Kelly, Realtors has expertise in the residential market. By combining the knowledge, resources, and infrastructure of the two companies, buyers and sellers now have the benefits of experts on both sides of the transaction.”

Williams added, “Kelly, Realtors is one of the longest established and most highly respected independent brokerages in the area. Known for its residential market understanding, exclusive relocation experts listing with LeadingRE, and its Commercial Division, Kelly, Realtors has the flexibility and expertise to meet the rapidly changing real estate market.

Kelly, Realtors boasts 28 years leading the Central Texas Real Estate industry as a full-service Real Estate Brokerage in Waco, Texas. Kelly, Realtors has over 70 agents, and 5 divisions including Residential, Commercial, the only LeadingRE authorized-member Relocation agency in Waco, Off-Campus Housing Property Management, and now a dedicated Land and Ranch real estate connection. Kelly, Realtors is a local company, with global connections.

Legacy Land and Ranches commands over 26 years as the premiere Land and Ranch Real Estate authority in Central Texas, and across the State of Texas. Serving private individuals and commercial buyers alike, Legacy Land and Ranches with founder Eric Williams, enjoys a world class reputation in the rural land market. Legacy Land and Ranches is the largest independent land and rural agency specializing in farm and ranch properties.

Cox, spearheading this agreement, commented on the expansion of the Kelly, Realtors Family of Brands. She explains, “Kelly, Realtors is a Waco area real estate institution. It is an honor to continue to represent the real estate needs of Wacoans and the surrounding area, just as we have for over 25 years. We are proud to maintain our independent status because it provides us the opportunity to shift with the needs of the people of Waco and McLennan County and meet the needs of an ever-increasing mobile global population. Rather than slowing us down, our longevity and independence give us the ability to plug quickly into current trends and provide the best of both worlds to our clients; experience and innovation.”

“Undoubtedly, the news of people migrating to Texas has not escaped the notice of most, and the interest in Waco in particular, because of Chip and Joanna Gaines. Many residents are hungry for the opportunity to live in the wide-open spaces of Texas, but they do not want to give up the benefits of living near a larger city. Ideally located between major metropolitan centers, Waco and the surrounding area meet the needs of an ever-growing population and expanding workforce. This area of Texas provides that perfect blend of country-life/city-life.”

“Creating this agreement with Legacy Land and Ranches is the perfect way to bring expert forces together to meet the demands of today’s market. Legacy’s experience and knowledge in the rural land market, and Kelly’s global resources and expertise in the residential market, creates a powerful combination to serve the current, and sure to expand needs of the real estate market in and around Waco. We’re excited for what the future holds for Waco and Kelly, Realtors.

Kelly, Realtors is a privately owned company offering full-service brokerage in Central Texas; Residential, Commercial, Property Management, Land and Ranch, and Relocation Services. We build our business philosophy and company reputation on the premise of quality and knowledgeable salespeople, honesty, and fair dealings. We give back to the community we serve, and we base our business on good principles and high morals. We are proud of our reputation and will continue to maintain the maximum level of service.

Exceptional Results Make The Difference.
