Hello, and welcome to my personal website!

Meet Kyle’s Team

Thank you for visiting my personal real estate website.

I hope you find my site to be helpful in your search for a property here on the Monterey Peninsula. I’ve tried to make it as simple as possible knowing that the main reason you’re here is to search the local market for homes for sale.

My name is Kyle Morrison and I am a real estate agent for Sotheby’s International Realty here in Carmel. If you have  couple of minutes I’d like to give you a little background on myself and why you might consider working with me. So here’s my version of “About me”….

I am originally from Evanston Illinois and I moved here about 9 years ago with my family. My wife of 36 years is my right hand in my real estate business. Her name is Lisa and she is originally from Stockton, Ca until I brought her out to Chicago some 27 years ago. We raised our three girls in Evanston until the youngest one was in eighth grade. When Lisa and I both turned 50 (nine years ago) we decided to make the jump to California where our oldest was attending school at UC Santa Barbara.

Somehow we knew that once our girls got a taste of California it would be nearly impossible to pull them back ‘home’….Great area to raise a family, but oh boy, those winters can really wear on you!

Since our kids are make up so much of our lives I think it’s important that I share a little about them…I feel it’s important to know something about someone’s family ties…especially if you’re going to ultimately put a lot of trust into and spend so much time with someone such as your Realtor. Here goes…I’ll try not to let my pride get in the way!

Kristen is theoldest and is now 32. (Yikes! Doesn’t seem possible!) She is married to a really WONDERFUL guy by the name of Mike Tarpey. Kristen and Mike have a little one and a half year old boy that is the joy and love of the family. Emilio! is his name and of course words cannot begin to express how much fun and joy we all get from him. Kristen is an amazing Mom while working as a marketing manager for a tech company in Santa Barbara. She works like a dog, but thankfully the company recognizes her contribution and treats her royally. Kristen has the ‘business’ mind of the kids and is always fun to interchange ideas with. But most of all she’s all MOM for her little guy Emilio…and it’s a very beautiful thing for us, as parents. to experience!

Lizzy is our ‘middle child’ at 30, and is the CREATIVE one of the kids. Treading on a narrow path and sitting behind a computer all day is not her cup of tea.  She’s more about expressing herself in her design work in fashion – which is amazing! and tapping into and sharing her hilarious sense of humor. Smart as a whip, and not easily tied down, Lizzy has a passion for life that is infectious —  fiercely loyal to her family and friends, she’s a pure joy to anyone fortunate enough to be in her orbit…Lizzy is one of those people that is still discovering and uncovering what makes people so attracted to her…it’s because you are a genuinely REAL person Lizzy! And then there’s Roxy…the youngest at a whopping 22!! (That just can’t be!!) Roxy has a balanced blend of artistic talents in theatre and film combined with a determination to be both heard and appreciated. Being the youngest of 3 girls, she’s had to fight her way to be heard and respected for being herself — which is nothing short of amazing! Self confidence and determination combined with a soft spot for true friendship and real relationships in her life. Like the other 2 girls Roxy has that Mid-Western work ethic that will pay her dividends for the rest of her life. A very cool kid..errr,,, person indeed!

So there you have it….my life. Well, the personal side of it anyway. As a professional I’m really not much different than I am when I’m home with the family. I love my career in real estate and I think my passion for what I do translates directly to how hard I “work” for my clients. I say “work” because I rarely feel like it’s work at all. Whether I’m showing clients properties or managing one of the properties I have listed….it all makes for an amazing day and it’s a living I derive great personal gratification from. In this line of work it’s the people I meet and the friendships I make that really keeps me interested and motivated — and I’m here to tell you, this profession has blessed me with an incredibly wonderful group of truly close friends…So rewarding!!

I really love helping people realize their real estate goals and dreams and sharing this amazing place we call ‘home’ — the Monterey Peninsula. I hope my job of bringing buyers and sellers together and  providing a balanced blend of real estate knowledge and proven experience has served my clients well over the years. If the friendships I’ve gained are any measure of my success, I’d have to say I feel like one of the richest people in the world!

Well, there you have it…. A glimpse of what’s important in my life and a taste of what you might expect from me should I be fortunate enough to ‘work’ with you. One thing I will promise you is that my team and I will do our best to provide you with the very finest service and support throughout the process of buying and/or selling your property. I think you’d be hard pressed to find a more committed team of people that will work hard on your behalf and have your best interest in mind.

We would be honored to hear from you! With warm regards,Kyle Morrison
