Kelly Mahan


Kelly is originally from Newbury Park, California, but has called Santa Barbara home for 18 years. A graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara, Kelly has immersed herself in the Santa Barbara and Montecito communities, reporting on local news for multiple media outlets for nearly a decade. Kelly is currently a contributor for the Montecito Journal, writing a weekly column detailing business news, new residential and commercial developments, school district happenings, and other issues that affect our neighborhoods. She also contributes monthly real estate columns to the Santa Barbara Sentinel, and produces a monthly newsletter for the Pearl Chase Society, a local non-profit dedicated to the preservation of Santa Barbara’s historic architecture, landscape, and cultural heritage. Kelly also sits on the board of the Coast Village Road Association, a community organization whose mission is the advocacy and protection of the business owners and residents in the Coast Village Road area.

Kelly’s extensive knowledge of our local communities and the real estate market, as well as her highly competent work ethic and professional reputation in the Santa Barbara area make her an integral part of the Calcagno & Hamilton team.  

In her free time, Kelly and her husband, Jason, are avid travelers, exploring and discovering neighborhoods and cities all over the world. 

The agents at Calcagno & Hamilton are simply amazing. They are professional, experienced, knowledgable and were always willing to go the extra mile to make our home buying experience stress-free. Kelly Mahan was meticulous and would not give up until she found us an absolutely perfect new home. We will never work with anyone else!

Dan Crawford and Kelly Mahan, the two associates we worked with, were extremely professional, knowledgeable and personal.  They took great care of our home during the open houses, including our pet cats.  They were very accommodating of our infant daughter as well.  Each service we received was orchestrated impeccably.  We had an over asking price offer within hours of our first open house, and other full priced offers within days.  They supported us through the escrow process as well. We could not have been happier with our decision to use the Calcagno & Hamilton team as our representation.
