Kevin Brown began his career at the young age of 20, in search of the opportunity to work for himself and help people with the biggest purchase of their lives. Before becoming a real estate agent, Kevin worked as an ironworker and also for the housing department in Gloucester City.

Now a successful agent at Keller Williams Realty - Cherry Hill with Team NJPA, one of the biggest challenges that Kevin has overcome was being taken seriously as a young agent, which he overcame by educating himself through sales classes, selling BPOs, and meeting with experienced agents. His dream is to become a real estate coach and help others reach their goals while growing their own business. One of Kevin's favorite parts of being a real estate agent is that he gets to be out in the world and have a change of scenery every day.

What sets Kevin apart from other agents is his attention to detail and his unique way of working a deal. He is friendly and understanding but also knows how to keep his clients' best interests in mind. Kevin defines success by making sure his clients are happy with the outcome and that they do not feel cheated. This way, he gets more referrals and can sustain himself financially.

The biggest game changer for Kevin and his team was hiring a transaction coordinator to take care of many tasks. Kevin's goal for this year is to help 15 families reach their goal of owning or selling real estate, and personally, he is working towards potentially getting his broker’s license. In addition to his work, Kevin also supports his community as the vice president of the Gloucester City Irish Society, a local nonprofit organization that volunteers, donates, and gives scholarships to students from the two high schools in town.

Brian Colonna has always been fascinated by real estate and investing. So when the opportunity arose to become a real estate agent, he jumped at the chance. He joined the Val Nunnenkamp Team at Keller Williams Realty Marlton seven years ago.

Before becoming an agent, Brian worked in corporate medical sales. However, he always felt like he wasn't fulfilling his true potential. He wanted to work in an industry where he could help people achieve their dreams, and real estate was the perfect fit.

Brian has faced many challenges throughout his career, but one of the most difficult was managing six renovation projects while simultaneously closing 22 transactions in a three-month period in 2022. However, he learned to prioritize what was important and delegate tasks to his staff and employees. This experience taught him the importance of teamwork and the power of delegation. Brian says his favorite part of being a real estate agent is meeting new people and creating new friendships with people he wouldn't have met otherwise. What sets Brian apart from other agents is his full concierge service. His team handles everything from start to finish, including inspection repairs, appraisals, lenders, and inspections. They don't stop at the sale and are always available to help their clients with any issues that may arise.

Brian has big goals for the rest of this year and next year. Professionally, he wants to expand The Val Nunnenkamp Team to over $100 million in sales and exceed $30 million in personal sales. He also plans to purchase another rental property. Personally, he plans to marry the love of his life and continue raising his two amazing children.
