He jumped into real estate at the age of 20 and built his first mortgage business at the age of 25, a mortgage career with over $100+ million in closed deals. Kevin has not only built a team of successful bankers and broker but also a full support staff of marketing experts, accounting magicians, and operation machines. But when the economic crisis of 2008 hit, Kevin took a step back and began to study the market and patterns in his network of clients, close friends, and family. ​ In 2009 he began working closely with investors and entrepreneurs helping them develop business models and profitable campaigns using the new digital age that was upon all of us. ​ Kevin has helped hundreds get mortgages and make money, but noticed that many of them lacked the financial knowledge to create true wealth with a life they enjoyed... ​ That's when Smart Money Life was born. ​ Today, Kevin's primary goals are to only work with good people, who know the difference between right and wrong, and who desire to live in financial freedom and prosperity and have a goal to change not only themselves but the lives of their loved ones as well. ​ He spends his free time pursuing his passion for helping his next client, however, he will enjoy a good cigar with some good tunes from time to time :)
