Discover more about Keegan in this week's "Meet Our Agent".
Keegan, how did you land in Real Estate? And how long have you been an agent?
I have been an agent for 5 years. I never knew how much my life would change working in a field that has become more of a lifestyle than a job. I love our local communities and being involved in their growth and prosperity is truly a blessing.
What did you do before you became a real estate agent?
I came from the restaurant and brewery business. While I enjoyed the excitement and fluidity of working in a family business, I felt that I needed to broaden my creative horizons. After taking a number of community development courses in college, I knew where life would lead after the restaurant.
Name a role model who has inspired you in your career.
Sounds lame, but Andy Smith, our fearless leader, has had the most profound impact. I had met with him prior to coming to Peabody & Smith. You could tell that everything that came out of his mouth was the truth. No sugar coating. Well, I thought I knew better, and my sweet tooth took me to a different brokerage. After a few months of limited success in the rat race at a different brokerage, I realized the goods they sold me were not the champagne and strawberries as promised. I couldn't stop thinking about that broker up in Franconia, and as luck would have it, he called me in a time of deep introspection and I knew it was fate. Since then, he has been right 99.5% of the time. When you have someone to turn to with that much wisdom, it really allows you to leave the ego at the door and grow as a professional.
What do you like to do for fun outside of work?
I am an avid air miles junkie. There is not much I won't do for a few miles. That funds one of my true passions: Traveling the world with my lovely wife. When not working or traveling, I am likely at the golf course in the summer, or on the ski hill in the winter. I help coach the Lin-Wood School's Alpine Ski Team, which keeps the competitive fire burning. My garage is a wood studio to fuel some creativity and vent some steam. Lastly, I LOVE to mow my lawn.
Where do you like to go for vacation?
Anywhere but here? I am grateful to live in a vacation destination, but when it comes time to get away, I like to get away. Some of my favorite places are Laos, Botswana, the Maldives, Colombia, Vietnam, Thailand and New Zealand. No matter where I go, I always come home with a deeper appreciation for where I live.
