CURRENT CAREER HISTORY
Kevin Swift has been active in real estate since 1992, and served on the Board of Directors of the Sunflower Area Association of REALTORS from 2012-2014, where in previous years he also served on the Public Relations, Educational, and Technology Committees. Kevin is also a Certified New Home Specialist (CNHS), earned an Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR) designation, and is a Graduate of the REALTORS Institute (GRI). In 2019, Kevin ranked among the best of the best as a TOP 10 Individual Franchise Agent in Kansas, and for the last eight years has been among the TOP Individual Franchise agents by consistently selling between 45-70 homes every year, when the national average is nearer 7. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame, Sunflower Area Association of REALTOR Master's Club, and received the Andy Anderson Award. Kevin's 25 years of real estate experience, serving thousands of clients and countless home contracts, along with his use of current technologies, offers you the opportunity to hire a top professional to represent you when buying or selling.

FORMER STUDIO OWNER & PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER
Prior to real estate, Kevin was an award-winning professional photographer and studio owner. Today, he uses his ten years of photographic experience to shoot high-impact interior and exterior architectural photos of his listings for his home selling clients--photo services that would cost up to $500 on the open market. Buyers make crucial decisions about homes from the photos they see online... whether to tour, or ignore... and there are a lot of bad photos on the internet. His eye-catching images are proven to DOUBLE the average number of showings per listing, which significantly increases each clients home selling exposure and gets homes SOLD faster!

DAVE RAMSEY SHOW
Dave Ramsey from the Dave Ramsey Show recognized Kevin Swift for his excellence in service in 2009 on his national radio program. On July 29, Dave said in response to a Topeka homeowners positive comments about Kevin's recent real estate advice: "Well, thank you Jason, we try not to pick out Endorsed Local Providers unless they are just really, really cool good people." Later that year, Kevin was invited to spend an evening with Dave & Sharon Ramsey in their home overlooking Nashville, Tennessee--a rare opportunity in the life of a real estate agent.

ON A PERSONAL NOTE
Kevin sets aside Saturday for family time and spiritual rest. It is from His core values of God, faith and family that Kevin also serves his clients. He is committed to treating you with respect before, during and after the real estate transaction, and looks forward to the opportunity to serve you and your family!

Swift_TIPSWIFT TIP from THE HOMESELLER'S PLAYBOOK: People often want to know, does a house sell better occupied with furniture or vacant? Answer: They both sell equally well. Why? An occupied home offers personality and warmth, while a vacant but staged house offers space, which allows a buyer to begin mentally moving their furniture into the empty rooms, the early stages of ownership and desire.
