Newmark Taps 30-Year Real Estate Veteran for Sales Leader Role

Posted by Viktoria Dolinaj on October 7, 2021

(Houston, Texas – Oct. 7, 2021)   –  Newmark Homes has hired Bob Kennedy as Sales Director for its Austin Division.

It’s a reunion for Kennedy who entered the real estate market as a Realtor in 1991 and transitioned to builder new home sales two years later joining the Newmark Homes sales team where he worked until 2002. During his early tenure at Newmark, Kennedy was recognized by the Home Builders Association of Greater Austin in its MAX Awards as the 1998 Onsite Sales Professional of the Year.

Bob had a great start with Newmark Homes, excelling at onsite sales before moving into management. We worked together for Newmark back then and I’m thrilled to entice him back to the team after last year’s relaunch into the Austin market.

Shay Brinkley, President of Newmark Homes’ Austin Division

Kennedy worked with Grand Haven Homes and Toll Brothers in the Austin area, as well. He says today’s housing market offers challenges and opportunities.

The Austin homebuilding market is experiencing exponential growth, coupled with increased supply chain and labor challenges. Creative, solution-based strategies will be key to navigating our market in the coming months and years. Newmark’s current positions, personnel and our innovative approach to the sales process, product and design will help us meet the opportunities ahead and succeed.
