2024 Marketing Leader: Kelea Youngblood

Kelea Youngblood

Kelea Youngblood is a fearless, hard-working female leader who pushes the envelope and takes bold action to find the best way to elevate the 20,000 Central Texas REALTOR members and the community around her. The impact of Youngblood’s drive and commitment to excellence is seen in the numerous campaigns she’s launched that have elevated the Austin Board of REALTOS (ABoR) to a new level since she began her role as chief marketing officer. Youngblood also cares about her community and is deeply involved in helping and developing programs that allow young adults to realize their dreams and build thriving careers.

Youngblood leadership and excellence show up as hard work, constant learning and listening, a relentless pursuit of creative ideas and solutions and a resolve to be better than the day before. Wherever Youngblood goes, growth and innovation follow. Programs expand. Revenue rises. Team members are inspired to become leaders. Since joining ABoR in 2014, Youngblood’s influence and impact has grown to touch the entire association, building revenue-generating programs that have had an immeasurable impact on members’ businesses, including building an academy into one of the largest REALTOR education programs in the nation and reworking ABoR’s member communications and resources to yield the highest levels of member engagement in the organization’s history.

In 2019, ABoR gained national industry recognition for the “Be a Member” campaign that redefined opportunities for member engagement and called out the stagnation and stuffiness that has been plaguing associations for years. Youngblood was instrumental in bringing this campaign to life.
