After spending 14 very successful years in the real estate arena, Kerry was diagnosed with the beginning stages of emphysema in 2003. While managing 2 offices in Sarasota, Florida, Kerry began to hear about green built structures being healthier and more energy efficient. She went into a deep self-study mode, researching and wondering why no one was training the real estate industry on this topic. They were in control of their clients’ money and their biggest personal investment. It stands to reason that real estate professionals who represent the built structure should know of how this impacts a lifestyle. She investigated where education was being offered and found few resources on these topics. At the time, no other national associations had training programs for their members on the basics of energy efficiency, air quality or recycling or absence thereof impacted the environment. Currently “Green Building for Insurance Professionals” is approved in all 50 states and is offered through a 3rd party provider. Kerry repurposed all content and established Green Education On Line Dot Com in 2010.

Kerry was a Broker Associate in 2003 who managed 13 agents, and support staff in 2 real estate offices for Bosshardt Realty in Sarasota and Ellenton, Florida. Kerry produced $100 million in sales through close to 400 successful transactions from 1993 through 2002 in Maryland. She has always cared deeply for people and their paths in life as she also has extensive experience as a successful executive recruiter for 12 years, leading her offices each year in production and new client development.
I am now conservative but very passionate that we need a paradigm shift and an economic transformation.
