Episode 133 – Ken Brownlee, founder of The Ken Brownlee Real Estate Team in Brandon, Florida, was one of the first agents I had the opportunity to meet after relocating to the Tampa/St Pete area. Ken has built a team dedicated to helping buyers and sellers achieve their dreams. He showed me this trait directly when I mentioned I had yet to see an alligator after a month or so in the state. Ken immediately led me to a pond behind his office and the hunt was on. While we did not find one that day, I’ll never forget Ken’s offer to help. Enjoy Ken’s story and if you’re in Brandon, maybe he’ll find a gator for you!
