Exploring Life & Business with Kedrick King of King Homes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kedrick King.

Hi Kedrick, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in kinesiology but did not have any desire to continue my education past college, which is needed for this degree. Once I graduated, I landed an entry-level corporate position which I was estatic about, but I quickly learned the corporate life was not for me. I wanted to be my own person, my own boss, as I was not a fan of working hard for others and receiving minimal reward/satisfaction in return… I wanted something more!

I love helping people, and I have always had an eye for beautiful homes, so my now fiancee asked, “Why don’t you apply for your real estate license?” I applied, passed my exam, and the rest is history! One of the best decisions I have ever made.

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
This process has been far from smooth, but in the words of Frederick Douglas, “without struggle, there is no progress”. Which is a phrase I live by to this day.

When I first started, I moved between two brokerages and did not make a single dime for eight months. Just like any other new agent, I needed to establish myself. What helped was my mentor, a great mentor will take you a long way. Him telling me, “Put the work in. Be consistent, and the business will come”. And sure enough, he was right; it was the constant everyday grind that allowed me to be where I am today. And the grind is still the same!

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
King Homes is a real estate company under Realty ONE Group. Established in 2017. We specialize in “Changing Lives.” We help first-time home buyers, move-up buyers, current homeowners, and investors reach their real estate goals. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile and never stopping, even when the deal is done. We set ourselves apart by being technology-based, always available, and providing exceptional customer service to make sure the client has an awesome real estate experience. I personally am most proud of the growth of the company over the last four years. I always knew the business would be great, but to see it come to fruition is extremely gratifying.
