Kelly Bryan-Johnson - Biography


Leader of Optimism, Drive, & Flight


Kelly Bryan-Johnson’s paternal great grandfather, C. G. Taylor, was a self-taught aeronautical engineer from Nottingham, England and is lauded as The Father of Private Aviation in America. C.G Taylor, along with his brother Gordon, formed Taylor Brothers Aircraft Corporation at Rochester, NY during the Roaring 20’s but later moved the company during the Great Depression to Bradford, PA.  The Taylor Brothers designs became best known as the Piper Cub, when Piper bought the company.


The company, now called Taylorcraft, is “the longest running production aircraft in the world, also the safest aircraft ever built with only 6 Airworthiness Directives (AD’s), no airframe failures, no spar failures, no wing failures,” for over the last 75 years.  Taylorcraft, now at South Padre International Airport at Brownsville, Texas, is an American aviation icon.


With this same dogged determination and verve for life, C. G.’s great granddaughter, Kelly Bryan-Johnson, was born in California, the eldest of 4 siblings, to E.J. and Cathie Bryan.   E.J., a smart, conscientious man steeped in social philosophy, psychology and religious studies took the family to Kentucky to enjoy small town living, green grass and don't forget the snow, where Kelly spent her formative years.


Settling in Tucson, AZ in 1985, Kelly fell in love with the desert which she still calls home.  “I LOVE AZ!  If you let it, the desert will grab a hold of you and never let go. I'm addicted to the sunshine, mild weather and incredible mountain views that protect our valley."  


Kelly's career path brought her to some of Tucson's largest employers and community pillars. From large corporations such as Tucson Electric Power (TEP), Boise Cascade (office products), Cardinal Heath (healthcare), Long Realty Group (real estate) and now Realty Executives Tucson Elite, Kelly has learned the art of quality customer service and relationship-building.  


After 14 years in the real estate industry, Kelly is the team leader of the Kelly Bryan Group which moved to Realty Executives Tucson Elite in 2017.  The move was driven by the desire to best serve her clients and keep that home grown, local feel while being part of a company that started in Arizona with more than 50 years of history with one name no matter where you go in the world.  Brand quality and International presence aside, Kelly jumped at the opportunity to work with the management team of John Dwyer and Jeff Murtaugh.  They've created something special at Realty Executives Tucosn Elite and I wanted to be a part of something great!  


On the home front, Kelly is married to West Point graduate and former Army Captain, Mark Johnson, has 2 very cool, children, is a professional singer, an avid UA basketball & football fan (of course!), and, in her spare time, helps other cancer survivors, like herself. 


Back to Tucson, “Our four mountain ranges are breathtaking all day, every day; and I can't think of a better, more beautiful and economical place to call home. I love helping clients Move Up, Move Out, Move on, one home at a time.”
