Dailey loves finding perfect homes

Published 10:35 am Monday, December 28, 2009

Born in San Antonio, Texas, Kathy Dailey moved to Alabama at 6.

Her parents divorced when she was 12 so she went back to Texas with mom, Gloria Mullins, and sister Lisa. After high school she came back to Alabama to visit her Dad and some old friends. A mutual friend introduced her to Kenny Dailey and in 1984, two years into their marriage, Alabaster became their home.

“I used to pass the building up in Pelham that advertised real estate school and think, ‘I could do that,’” Dailey said.

Not only could she do it, she has done it well since 1987. Crediting her base of church family, business friends and previous customers, she keeps consistently busy and loves her job. Her friendly, outgoing personality and genuine care for people makes her a good fit for this job.

Right now, real estate people are literally taking orders from people who want to buy. Finding the perfect home for each family she deals with is her goal.

“It’s such a blessing to see someone so happy when all the paperwork and worry are over,” she said.

Outside work, Dailey has a full life as well. Her son Justin, 24, daughter-in-law Shea, and daughter Kaitlyn, 20, make up her immediate family. Her mom and sister are also living in Alabaster now.

At First Presbyterian Church, Dailey presently serves as a deacon and has previously served on the hospitality committee, as a mentor, sponsor/teacher and in Sunday School.

She loves children and it’s not unusual to see her holding someone’s little child. She has enjoyed her children and wishes now she had been a stay- at-home mom.

Dailey works to prove herself trustworthy and loyal. She wants to be a true friend and always put God first.

Family is of the utmost importance.
