Kent is a husband, father of three, and a full-time real estate investor.
Apartment investing has provided Kent the freedom to do what he loves with who he loves. Now his purpose is to provide opportunities for others to achieve the same success he’s experienced by investing alongside him.
Kent is currently the Senior VP of Investor Relations for Birge & Held. Since 2008, Birge & Held has acquired 12,000 apartment units and currently holds $1 billion in AUM. Their 12-year track record, complete vertical integration, and one-day express renovations set them apart and bring unparalleled value to their investors.
Additionally, Kent is the founder of both the Indianapolis Multifamily Investing Meetup and the Youtube channel, Simplied Real Estate, where he helps investors make informed decisions through short videos focused on breaking down complex investing topics.
Prior to joining Birge and Held, Kent invested passively in 1,300 units, and founded a boutique syndication firm called Hudson Investing in 2018.
Before falling in love with real estate, Kent was a partner in a management consulting firm where he held several key leadership positions and played a central role in growing the business from 6 to 95 employees and $30MM in revenue in 6 years.
