|Kent Clothier experienced the trials and tribulations of building businesses across several industries has taught Kent the value of having the right mindset and principles in place to achieve your ultimate success.|
Kent Clothier achieved corporate success at an early age, rising up the corporate ladder of one of the largest grocery distribution companies in the country. In 1987 Kent began helping his father run a trading company in the grocery distribution and supply industry. By the age of 23 Kent took over the day to day sales and operations of the company and in turn, the company grew to annual sales of over $80 million. Kent ultimately oversaw the sale of the company to a Boca Raton based competitor and quickly rose through the ranks of the larger organization. By 2000, Kent was the Executive Director of Sales and Market for the organization, now doing in excess of $2 billion in annual sales and a company that had grown into the 7th largest privately held company in Florida.
Although he had owned a few rental properties for several years, in 2000 Kent started his new venture with very little previous real estate experience. Like many others, Kent was overwhelmed with the lack of quality information in the market to help a real estate professional to grow their business. With so much garbage material in the industry, Kent found it difficult to navigate between fact and fiction. He decided that the only way to distinguish between the two was to get involved and to learn some things along the way.
Kent started his real estate career by looking to wholesale a few houses each month to create a nice living. However, this soon evolved into a much larger real estate organization. Kent and his family now run a company that has quickly evolved into a team that has become one of the premiere real estate investment organizations in the country.
By daring to dream big, taking calculated risks, and a willingness to step out, Kent, his family, and their partners have built an organization that stands out in real estate today:
Wholesaling over 500 houses since 2003, 200 in 2008, and current plans for over 350 in 2009
Through this company, now operates one of the largest property management companies in Tennessee with over 700 properties under management
President and CEO , 1-800-SELL-NOW
Their family now owns over 150 rental properties
Their family now owns 7 commercial buildings in Memphis, Tennessee
Owns and overseeing 24 unit condo conversion in Memphis, Tennessee
Founding member of Mid-South REIA with over 350 members
Kent Clothier, along the way, perfected marketing techniques and strategies using 1-800-SELL-NOW that helped to drive truly motivated sellers to the organization and was the single biggest reason for his real estate success.
