Kanemoto’s passion for professional service has been a boon to his commercial real estate business. As the youngest president of the Longmont Association of REALTORS®, a member of the city of Longmont’s strategic planning committee, and a director of the Longmont Area Economic Council, he’s introduced to people he might not meet otherwise.
Reaching out: “I’ve built many friendships and customer relationships through my volunteer work and knowledge of the local market,” says Kanemoto, whose father also is a commercial practitioner. Last year, the son reached a sales volume of $15 million on 58 transactions.
Optimistic outlook: He also credits his success to a positive attitude. “Even in the most complex real estate transactions, I can come up with a solution,” Kanemoto says. In one transaction, he sold excess water rights on farmland, saving his client almost 50 percent of the cost to purchase the land.
