Ken Robbins grew up in Maine. He attended West Point and graduated in 1994. After serving in the US Army for 20 years, Ken retired and became an entrepreneur. He is currently the Co-Founder and CEO of Agent Hero which connects home buyers and sellers with experienced and vetted professional real estate agents who are veterans or military spouses.
Ken went to West Point with Episode 62 guest Craig Cummings. Craig encouraged Ken and his Co-Founder Jason Dempsey to start a business after retiring. They pursued a couple of ideas, but eventually landed on the Real Estate market and Agent Hero. Earlier this year, Ken and his team partnered with Episode 82 guests Amy Shick and Lauren Rothlisberger from The Military Property Project.

Sometimes in business we get so hyped up on spending money to market and recruit, when actually I still think your best marketing is your word of mouth
