Timothy Kelly

Tim is an active duty Chief Petty Officer, in the United States Navy and has served his country for 13 years. Now stationed on shore duty in Pensacola, Florida, he is fully pursuing his dream of owning and operating multi-family real estate and helping others realize their financial freedom goals!

Tim has been investing in real estate since 2011 where he purchased his first single family residence with the intentions of forcing appreciation and flipping for a profit, that was also his first “house-hack,” and he quickly learned the benefits of long-term buy and hold real estate were much more aligned with his goals. 

Through analyzing hundreds of multi-family properties, Tim has built an incredible network of real estate professionals, and looks forward to acquiring 5,000 multi-family units within the next three years.

Through his years in the military, Tim has not only learned the power of high-level leadership, teamwork, discipline, and grit; he became a certified Command Financial Specialist, educating hundreds of Sailors and Marines on personal finance and creating financial freedom… Tim rapidly found another life passion!

As the Financial Education and Syndication Chief on the incredible platform, Active Duty Passive Income (ADPI), Tim is helping active, reserve, and other military affiliated personnel realize their financial freedom goals through real estate investing.

Tim earned a Bachelor's degree in Organizational Management from Ashford University while on active duty.

Tim is now a Senior Managing Partner of both Kelly Housing Group and Affordable Housing Group where he and his partners invest in and syndicate multi family property in the affordable housing space with a focus on apartment complexes and mobile home communities… Building Communities, Building Legacies.

He is married to his lovely wife, Allyson, and they love being active in the community by giving back to the military, he loves playing shows and drumming with his band, seeing live music and concerts, scuba diving and traveling the world.



“Hi, my name is Nick.
