Introducing Kyle A. Kozora, The Shannon Schmitz Group’s new Operations Manager
The newest member of our team, Kyle Kozora, brings a passion for the luxury marketplace in Austin. With more than 10 years of banking and property management experience along with extensive knowledge of contract review and negotiations, property valuation and sales pipeline management, Kyle’s skills are the perfect addition to The Shannon Schmitz Group.
Kyle began his career in real estate as a loan officer for BLS Funding in Jericho, NY in 2003. He rose through the ranks to become a sales team leader and trainer as the company continued to grow and evolve from a retail mortgage brokerage to one of the largest private mortgage lenders in the country.
In 2007, he opened his own branch of Topdot Mortgage (formerly BLS Funding). His branch originated over 100 million dollars in residential and commercial mortgages annually in over 40 states. Kyle then took a position in 2011 with the Real Estate Investment Trust, Getty Realty Corporation, where he managed their portfolio of over 1,200 commercial locations and handled the divestment of their non-essential sites.
Growing up on the East End of Long Island, Kyle gained an appreciation for the fact that there is nothing half so much worth doing as messing about on boats! He attended Cornell University, studying Industrial & Labor Relations. In May 2014, Kyle relocated to Austin from New York with Amanda, his wife of five years, and his two Norwich Terriers, Archie and Edith. Kyle is passionate about classic movies, theater, standup comedy, cheap beer and expensive scotch, and fantasy football for which he writes a weekly blog.
Kyle is firmly committed to using his experience and drive to support the agents in The Shannon Schmitz Group in any way to give clients the best service imaginable.
Welcome, Kyle! We are excited to have you on the team!
