Kevin L. Palmer/BrokerHost Solutions
Kevin L. Palmer serves as the CEO of BrokerHost Solutions. Prior to founding BrokerHost Solutions, Kevin spent 25 years in the financial services industry in Atlanta. Kevin has held many senior management positions, including Chief Administrative Officer, Chief Operations Officer and Chief Compliance Officer. Most recently Kevin served as Chief Executive Officer/President and board chairman of one of the nation’s largest securities brokers-dealers and registered investment advisory firms. Kevin has also served as litigation strategist at one of the nation’s leading law firms, advising partners and their clients on regulatory and compliance matters.
In 2006, Kevin founded a very successful real estate agency in Atlanta, PalmerHouse Properties. Through the development and growth of the agency, Kevin identified a significant and unmet need of the real estate entrepreneur. Often times real estate agencies are started by talented and successful real estate agents; however, the talents that make a successful real estate professional does not always translate into the business skill-sets to operate and manage a business.
It was these personal experiences that caused Kevin to form BrokerHost Solutions – to support the real estate entrepreneur. BrokerHost will assist Brokers and Owners by assuming the back office and administrative operations of a real estate agency, at a cost less than hiring and maintaining a staff. BrokerHost has the qualified staff, systems and experience to support a real estate agency’s needs.
