Susan Kent, PresidentRobert Donica

team_img_01Part fearless leader, part clothes horse, Susan has been in real estate for over 10 years. She and her co-pilot, Jeff, have owned a real estate investment firm for over 20 years (Jeff got a head start). Taking the knowledge and skill she learned from Kent Property Group, Inc, Susan took her show on the road and starting working with other investors. Soon, she was representing institutional buyers who were making national headlines with their high volume, high quality real estate purchases. “It’s too bad homeowners can’t benefit from the efficient structures of these high volume buyers,” she thought one day. “It’s not like it’s rocket science, it’s just real estate.” Thus, an idea took form. Susan gathered her highly experienced team and asked them what they thought about sharing their expertise with owner occupants, not just the big Wall Street guys. “We’re in!” they shouted. That was all Susan needed to hear. After a year of dreaming, planning, fundraising, and empathetic system structuring, Rocket Realty became a reality. Unlike many managing brokers, Susan does not directly list homes. “Being in competition with the Realtors who work for me makes no sense,” she says. “My place is to support, problem solve, encourage, and develop. Doing what’s best for my brokers and their clients never comes into conflict with doing what’s best for the company or myself. I believe in alignment and mutually beneficial relationships.”

When Susan is not busy thinking of new ways to improve the client experience, she loves to cook, adventure race (mountain biking, trail running, canoeing, climbing, and orienteering for up to 30 hours without stopping), golf, scuba dive, sail, travel, snow board, and spend time with Jeff and their daughters Caroline and Willa. If you ask her what guides her in life, she’ll tell you, “No one ever lies on their death bed and wishes they had spent more time fussing over house work, worrying about things they couldn’t control, or spending long nights at the office. It’s the people and experiences they neglected that they regret the most. I just want to make it to the finish line with as few regrets as possible.”
