Meet The Team!
Kassidy Benson, Taylor Whitton & Lisa Johnston
We are 100% dedicated to helping our clients find their happy place while also building wealth. In 2019, Taylor and Kassidy helped 34 families and sold $15M worth of a real estate. Living Room Real Estate has been open a little over one year and we just added our third Associate Broker/ Operations Assistant! Lisa Johnston gives our team greater capacity helping on the back-end as an Operations Assistant and also expands our expertise as a team with a wealth of knowledge around local schools and expertise in South Denver.
About Kassidy Benson, Owner + Real Estate Advisor
In 2019 Kassidy was overwhelmed with the support of her clients as she made the bold decision to open her brokerage. She is 100% invested in her relationships with her people; clients are a mix of best friends, new friends, old friends, and she wouldn’t want it any other way. As many of her original clients are ready to trade-up into bigger homes, she has now become an expert at helping them navigate the challenge of buying and selling consecutively. In 2019 she purchased her second home and is still working toward her goal of owning five properties with passive income – in 2020 she plans to complete the construction of an Accessory Dwelling Unit (2 bed/ 2 baths, with a two-car garage).
About Taylor Whitton, Associate Real Estate Advisor
Taylor had a wildly successful first year! With her background in leasing, she learned the ropes quickly and helped 10 families buy, sold one listing, and helped with 4 leases. She really enjoyed helping first-time-home buyers navigate the process and also worked with several investor clients purchasing properties to rehab. Taylor contributed an enormous amount to the brokerage with her event ideas, social media expertise, and killer open houses.
Meet Lisa Johnston, Operations Assistant and Associate Real Estate Advisor
Lisa grew up mid-west, received a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute in Design. She moved to Denver and lived in Park Hill for ten years before moving to Southmoor (I-25 and Hampden) for better schools and more space when her girls were younger. Her daughters are now at Arapahoe High School.
Lisa has been helping with Living Room’s marketing since April 2019. After interviewing many people, it was clear Lisa was the right person for the role because she submitted the best design and she was passionate about real estate. Last summer, Kassidy had the opportunity to help a family that was focused on finding the right school for their kids and Kassidy immediately enrolled Lisa’s help. Kassidy wrangled Lisa, knowing that she had insight into the best schools and neighborhoods for families to come along for the showings. It proved to be really important info and impressed the clients. It also motivated Lisa to finally get her real estate license, something she has wanted to do for years.
Lisa will be helping Living Room Real Estate with marketing, scheduling, client appreciation, and team accountability part-time. She is also a licensed broker with one sale already under her belt and is now gaining the valuable experience and knowledge in her role as Operations Assistant to excel in her role as a Real Estate Agent.
