Visionary.  As a licensed Broker Associate and Realtor®, Kent uses his experience and foresight to proactively address details before they become a problem.  He helps his clients see properties in a visionary light of past, present and future potential and value.  Kent initiates communication in every phase of the transaction, and handles every minute detail from the first phone call all the way through to the closing table.

Listening makes all the difference.  Thirty years as a business owner have sharpened his negotiation and organizational skills.  Kent sees a number of similarities between real estate and his experience in custom clothing. Finding the perfect property for each individual client is always his focus. He says, “There is no difference in customer service between a three-button suit and a three-bedroom house.”  Kent’s real estate clients are well served by his careful attention to detail and deep understanding of what true customer service means. He believes that “listening to my clients makes all the difference. You have to get to the heart of what’s important to people.”

Same passion, with a longer tape measure.  Kent’s ties to the Boise area run deep. As a native Idahoan, he and his wife have spent a lifetime in the Treasure Valley community, living, working, and raising their three children.  After receiving his BA in Communications from Boise State University, Kent began his career in men’s business clothing, earning the designation of Master Custom Designer from the distinguished Custom Tailors and Designers Association of America. While providing Idahoans custom-tailored attire through his J. Kent Ltd. custom clothing business in Boise, Kent pursued his interest in real estate. For more than three decades, he has bought, sold, designed, and built houses in the Boise area, both as an investor and a homeowner.

Clients and friends, who have known Kent’s passion for fashion, recognize the same professionalism and enthusiasm for helping people in his Real Estate business.  “I like to say it is the same passion for helping people, just with a longer tape measure!”
