CentryStone management team utilizes decades of combined real estate expertise to control risk and improve efficiency, and often provides tiers of investment options so that you can always find something fitting your style. I wish them great success.

I am an investor from Indiana. Three years ago, I had an opportunity to meet with Kelly and core team members in Atlanta. Afterwards, I did some research on her company and projects. As a conservative investor, I found the no risk and low risk projects met my need, I never need to worry loss of my principals and still with nice return. Kelly and her team had provided in a timely reply whenever I need reach them. So fortunate to be connected with Kelly and the company, best wishes to her and the company.
I've known Kelly for 6-7 years and over the years I invested in more than ten of her projects. About half of these projects have ended and generated good returns. None of the them lost money. I think there are three layers of risk in real estate investing. The first is character risk - in another words, is this person telling me the truth. Is this a Ponzi Scheme? Based on my years of experience with Kelly, I have 100% trust in her personal integrity. The second layer is project risk. From project selection, loan application, closing, project management, personnel management, to project exit - problems could come from anywhere, and there are risks involved in resolving all of these issues. I think these project-level risks could be controlled, but never reduced to zero. From my years of interactions with Kelly, I could see her passion in real estate investing, and I believe she could do better than most people in this field. The last layer of risk is the general market risk. We've all experienced stock market and real estate market meltdowns - there's no need to say too much. I personal believe as long as we are in the market, this layer of risk is uncontrollable. Therefore any investment, including real estate investment, including investment in Kelly's projects, all have risks, especially short term mark-to-market valuation risk. We should be aware of that.

As one of the early investors since 2015, I witnessed the exponential growth in Kelly and her Real Estate investment profolio. I delegated a big chunk of my lifetime savings to Kelly to invest in Real Estate projects, and she did not disappoint me. Along with other investors, I’m very grateful of the exceptional investment returns generated by Kelly. During all these years, Kelly has accumulated extensive investment experience and success in the Real Estate investment market. She is proven capable of handling a board variety of projects ranging from apartments, commercial Real Estate, medical buildings, shopping centers, hotels, storage and even farm land. Personally, Kelly is a very sincere, reliable, straightforward yet humble person who always put her shareholders’ interest first. She is also a super mom of 4 amazing kids which is truly impressive. I’m very confident that Kelly and her company CentryStone will continue to provide excellent investment returns for their investors. I’m all in for what they offer.
