Keith was born in Santa Barbara on Dec. 24, 1939 to Robert and Naomi Berry. He attended Franklin Elementary, Santa Barbara Junior High, and graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 1957.

Keith began his career in real estate in 1964, earning his license in 1970, and spent more than 50 years helping clients buy and sell homes in the Santa Barbara area.
