Beginning her career as a ReMax Real Estate Agent and working her way to being recognized within the top 1% of Realtors in both the Durham Region and on the Toronto Real Estate Board, many would agree that this level of success is the pinnacle achievement amongst their peers; but for Kathleen it was only the beginning.

Kathleen quickly realized that her success was attributed to programs that she had developed internally over years of perfecting her craft as an Agent. Recognizing the demand for such programs, Kathleen set out to work on further developing each system and building out a robust platform of educational programs and coaching methods designed to provide Real Estate Agents with the tools and techniques needed to progress forward both personally and professionally. In 2015, Kathleen Black Coaching & Consulting (KBCC) was formed.
