Kent Hanley

With more than 30 years of real estate experience, Hanley has managed nearly every facet of the industry from working as a loan officer and a real estate sales manager, to creating and operating ancillary real estate services, and serving in numerous senior management roles. His broad range of abilities and vast experience aligns well with Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston’s mission to continue to strengthen its suite of real estate service offerings and bolster its leadership within the Triangle real estate market and beyond.

On August 1, 2016, Hanley joined Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston from William Raveis Real Estate in Shelton, Conn., where he began his career in 1985. He held several leadership roles during his long tenure with the company including his most recent position as executive vice president and general manager overseeing the firm’s entire Connecticut sales organization. Under his tutelage, the company developed a technology-driven and service-oriented culture resulting in a robust agent roster and numerous sales offices across the Northeast.

Prior to that position, he served as vice president of operations for William Raveis Real Estate and vice president of its William Raveis Mortgage Company. In those roles, he managed the transformation of the in-house mortgage brokerage to become a mortgage banking operation, which helped to round out the firm’s numerous real estate services.

Hanley is an active leader in industry associations and joint business ventures. He serves as a director and founding member of Upstream RE, a real estate market data consortium, as the chairman of the board for Realty Alliance, and as a director for the National Association of Realtors.

He is an avid drag racer and is a Divisional Racers' Representative for the National Hot Rod Association in Glendora, Calif. Hanley supports numerous nonprofit organizations including participating as a committee member for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Dinner of Champions and volunteering at Paul Newman’s The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Ashford, Conn.
