Meet Kym and Brandon Ely

Brandon Ely and Kym Ely

Kym and Brandon Ely have always searched for ways to help others, giving monetarily and time whenever possible. Kym also brings attention to environmental issues through social media. The couple has been married for more than 10 years and have 4 beautiful children. Caring for others is at the core of the Ely’s life focus.


It is this love for family and community that encouraged them to develop Inventory Defense, LLC. Providing personal property inventory services allows them to share knowledge regarding the importance of knowing what you own so you can recover equitably. This is because proper recovery can aid in reaching your goals, visions, and plans set for your family or business. The Elys believe in preparedness, so making a list of what you own, and having photographs to back up that list, just makes sense. Realizing that most don’t have the time to tackle this often daunting task, they chose to provide this essential information for homeowners, renters, and business owners – once again helping others.


The Ely’s combined 18-plus years of business experience brings a solid background to deliver a quality product with a focus on customer service. Brandon’s years in the financial services industry as an insurance agent – which included life, investments, and broker’s licenses – provides him with the experience to have worked with people who faced losses due to not being able to file a comprehensive insurance claim. When filing claims on behalf of clients, he received first-hand knowledge of the issues that can occur, and realized then that having an inventory can make the difference between getting what your family needs or going without.


Bringing her skill set to the company, Kym’s years in administration and as an office manager compliment her husband’s expertise. Her experience in office procedures, customer service, and addressing clients’ needs create a strong in-office structure as well as the people skills to provide excellent home inventory services.


Kym earned an Associate of Arts Degree in Business Administration from Strayer University, and Brandon is currently attending Greenville Technical College, working toward an accounting degree.


In addition to home and business contents inventories for disaster preparedness and recovery, Inventory Defense also offers this documentation service for collectibles, collections, estate inventories, and appraisal services. They embrace the opportunity to help family, friends, and especially YOU to be better prepared in any instance where you need a record of all your personal and/or business personal property. “We guarantee loyalty, privacy, and honesty to every client.”
