Inside The Mind Of...

  • What does "A Brighter Way" mean to you? A fresh and unique approach that brings fulfillment. It's the light at the end of the tunnel.
  • What's your favorite aspect of your job? Being able to create professional and personal relationships that will last a lifetime
  • What line of The Rea Way describes you the best? Respect your clients, your colleagues and yourself.
  • Describe your work style. While I do appreciate and embrace the team approach, I need my alone time to think and strategize.

Just For Fun:

  • What did 10-year-old you want to be when you grew up? Play-by-play sportscaster

How he's helped clients meet their business needs:

  • An elderly client needed to plan for succession and needed to do some estate planning. Kent saw the need to perform a life insurance review and was able to help the client avoid a disastrous situation in which they would have been without life insurance in two years. He referred them to an agent that set them and their estate up for life.
