Keeya Clayton, REALTOR®
Although she was born and raised in Virginia’s Hampton Roads region, Keeya Clayton proudly calls Orlando home. Keeya became fascinated with real estate and the pursuit of homeownership as she watched her single mother struggle to purchase their family’s first home. Her fascination has led to a career in real estate where she leverages the powerful connection of heart and mind for the benefit of her clients, partners, and employers.
In addition to her role as a Realtor, Keeya has recently launched a new venture called iheartgarages'. The organization’s mission is to improve housing affordability through converting under-utilized backyards and garages that provide income-generating opportunities for homeowners and affordable units for renters.
Keeya has over 20 years of experience in real estate market research & analysis, land acquisition feasibility studies, and residential sales; and 6 years of small business operations. She holds an MBA from Indiana University and a BA in Economics from Spelman College. Shortly after college graduation, Keeya joined the US Peace Corps where she served as a Small Business volunteer in both Benin and Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast). In this role, she provided consulting and organized business skill training events for small business owners; and she raised funds and awareness for a regional Junior Achievement chapter. Currently, Keeya is an active member of the Urban Land Institute.
Keeya’s dedication to her clients is largely influenced by her love of God and people. Past clients praise Keeya’s ability to provide greater peace of mind, addressing their needs and requests with knowledge and care.
Keeya is a dedicated wife and mother of 2. She enjoys traveling, learning Spanish, spending time at Disney, and listening to podcasts; and she’s a true beach-girl at heart.
