Kenny Truong, Senior Sales Associate at Climb Real Estate Group, won the Inman Innovator award for the 2015 Most Innovative Agent/Broker.
Climb Real Estate agent Kenny Truong won the 2015 Most Innovative Agent/Broker award from Inman News, announced at the Real Estate Connect 2015 conference. The Inman Innovator awards are held each year; this year Inman selected 66 companies and individuals in six different categories to be chosen to receive the prestigious recognition as one of real estate’s top movers and shakers. Climb Top Producer Danielle Lazier was also nominated for the Most Innovative Agent/Broker award; Climb Real Estate was the only brokerage to have more than one agent nominated.
Kenny Truong has been a top producer since 2011 and is in the top 1 percent of agents for the number of homes sold in the East Bay. Truong has only been in the real estate industry for five years, but in those short five years he has managed to develop a social media presence that drives a very successful career in the real estate business and garnered the attention necessary to receive the honored Inman award for Most Innovative Agent/Broker.
“I was honored to be named Innovator of the Year by Inman. It’s exciting to be recognized for something that I’m so passionate about–which is real estate and technology,” said Kenny Truong, who works out of Climb’s Jack London Square office in Oakland. Truong added, “I was drawn to joining Climb Real Estate because they share my vision for technology, innovation, and social media and for helping me grow my real estate business and further expanding my #FASTAGENT brand.”
“Kenny Truong is truly incredible,” said Chris Lim, Climb’s founder and CEO. “He is a technological innovator, a brilliant business man, and a thoughtful leader. Winning the Inman Innovator award confirms his cutting-edge marketing savvy. We are confident Kenny is going to have a very long and successful career and are particularly proud to have him in our Climb family.”
The winner was announced at the Inman Connect conference at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square on Thursday, August 6, 2015. Real Estate Connect is a real estate technology conference held in both New York City and San Francisco each year.
