Following that experience, Amber was a part of the leadership team at KWCP in a key, behind-the-scenes role, keeping the wheels in motion running brokerage-wide systems and operations.

Amber’s 12+ years with KWCP has afforded her the opportunity to wear many hats, to master the KW tools, systems and models, and to directly impact the lives and careers of many of our agents and staff. Her organizational and interpersonal expertise, experience and extensive knowledge of Keller Williams, along with the ins-and-outs of the local industry, made the leap to Agent Concierge Services seem natural.

And leaping is something with which Amber has grown quite accustomed, as she bounds to DC from Iowa on a frequent basis as part of her work. While the flights may not always be smooth, the workflow between her and the rest of the team is.

Amber most enjoys time with her husband and 2 kids, family and friends, running and jaunts around the block with her dog. Amber is also a gifted musician and participates in a local community choir.
