About Kalyani Dere

Hello, I am Kalyani, your dedicated and involved real estate professional with a passion and love for helping families find their ultimate dream home!

I am originally from India and moved to the US to pursue my MBA in University of Connecticut. After a few years of living in CT and working in NYC, I moved to Richmond, VA and have been a Glen Allen resident along with my husband and son for around 20 years.  Having lived here for so long, I have seen Richmond and its surrounding suburbs grow and develop into thriving beautiful neighborhoods and communities. I am involved with Reestablish Richmond – a local charity that helps refugees and migrants connect to resources and help them find a home in Richmond.

I love beautiful homes and have moved 3 times and constructed 3 homes over the period of 20 years in Glen Allen. In this process, I realized my passion for homes and helping others find their dream home. I also understand and can relate to moving from one city to another as well as one home to another and wanting this process to be seamless and stress free.

My background in Banking and Mortgage has elevated my experience in customer service, negotiation techniques and as well as knowledge of the financial aspect of home buying.  Being a long term resident of Richmond, I am well informed and knowledgeable about Richmond market trends and always educate my clients about the neighborhoods they are potentially considering moving into. Coming from a data analytics background, I am able to translate real estate market trends and data in simplistic terms to my clients.

I love connecting with people and have a strong work ethic of being highly responsive, honest, and committed to achieving the optimum and best outcome for my clients and above all creating lifelong friendships. I invest in my client’s lifestyle and make their MOVE my passion.

Once you choose me as your real estate agent, I will work hard not just to see that your expectations are met, but that they are exceeded!

I look forward to earning your trust and being part of your journey in finding a home or selling one!
