After growing up outside New York City and spending several years after school working in Boston, Kieran decided in 1992 Vermont was a place he would like to call home. After moving to Vermont, Kieran worked at IBM for nine years, where he marketed the technology company's ability to manufacture world-class computer chips. His job at IBM took him across the United States and beyond as he marketed IBM's capabilities to companies such as Apple, Sony and Qualcomm.
While at IBM, Kieran earned his Master of Science in Business Administration from St. Michael's College, a program that stresses leadership, administration and management skills. After leaving IBM, Kieran worked at what is now GE Healthcare in the Radiology Division, where he marketed the company's software offering. Kieran decided to transfer his marketing skills to real estate and in 2002, Kieran joined Coldwell Banker Hickok & Boardman Realty, where he quickly became a valued member of the agency's team.
The real estate industry soon recognized Kieran's professionalism and negotiating abilities, with Coldwell Banker International conferring its Sterling Society award on him for three consecutive years. The award is bestowed upon the company's top agents. Kieran has been ranked as one of the firm's top five sales associates, buoyed by clients who describe him as a "breath of fresh air" who demonstrates "honesty, integrity and expertise." Another client has praised his skills as "critically important at every step of our house sale. Bottom line? He maximized the final sale proceeds."
Kieran's certification as a negotiating specialist as well as his prior work experience has provided him with helpful skills he applies to the real estate market. "I enjoy helping people get things done, while calming their nerves," Kieran notes. "I'm very resourceful and proactively communicate with clients."
With his interest in keeping ahead of trends in real estate, Kieran is a certified e-marketing specialist, helping him market homes via new technologies. With clients wanting to have information instantly available, Kieran notes that he's accessible to clients via any method they prefer, whether that may be text messaging or a call to his mobile phone.

Kieran was a fabulous broker. He was detailed, organized, available for questions throughout the sale. He was a wealth of knowledge and a delight to work with. I would recommend him to friends and family! Thank you Kieran! My neighbors sold their townhome a few years ago and recommended Kieran to me. So glad they did.

I could care less who he worked for but I'll never use anyone other than Kieran. He went above & beyond to drag me to about 20 properties, gave me background on each town & community, guided me through the process, bull-dogged the bank into closing as early as possible, and worked all hours of the day/night/weekend to make my deal go through. He was exceptional.
