Raised in a small Midwest town, Kerby was instilled early on with a strong work ethic and traditional values. At 12 years old, he got his first job at the local chicken plant. “Money doesn’t grow on trees,” his father would say. Kerby worked hard for six years at the plant evenings and weekends, before deciding to attend Hamline University to pursue his degree in business. He has a natural propensity for business and was hired after graduation by General Mills to work on business operations. After three years at General Mills, Kerby’s entrepreneurial itch was getting real, and he took real estate classes on evenings and weekend. He went after it full throttle in late 2006. He had a few good years, but it wasn’t until he and Cristina got married and later joined forces in the business that it really took off. The team is now executing the vision that Kerby first had in 2006 and he couldn’t be prouder of the success of the team.
In addition to the real estate team, Kerby added a home building company and started by flipping homes, which grew into a remodeling business and eventually into a mid-size local builder. He and Cristina have grown their rental portfolio and Kerby has done consulting work for several real estate companies. He’s taken his love for real estate, his knowledge, and his expertise and applied it to his everyday life. Kerby has a knack for ‘big picture’ and loves dreaming big about the companies!
