A life-long Brooklynite, Ken MacBride is a natural leader and relationship builder. He was born in Flatbush and raised in Marine Park. After attending KCC he became an iron worker for Local 40 and then opened his own construction company. Ken's company was responsible for rehabbing several homes in Brooklyn, which is how he developed his relationship with Fillmore Real Estate over 33 years ago. He then focused on a career in real estate and joined the Fillmore Family in 1986. Ken joined us in our Canarsie office (the Log Cabin), at a time when Fillmore was only 10 offices large (250 agents). He developed an impressive gift for listing and getting homes sold at top dollar with minimal days on the market. In 1990, after four years, he was elevated to Assistant Manager and became top salesperson in the entire company for the next four years. He then went to our Avenue L branch and specialized in foreclosure, short sales and rehab properties, a natural progression considering his background. In 2001, he was promoted to Vice President, Director of REO (Real Estate Owned) marketing. As VP, he oversaw the day to day operations of the Downtown Brooklyn market. He also managed five offices (Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, East Williamsburg and Fort Greene) and over 100 agents. Ken maintains strong relationships with several foreclosure banks, short sale/modification companies and has helped hundreds families through those difficult situations for over the last 30 years. Ken handles over 100 homes per year and has been honored as a proud member of The Fillmore Real Estates Chairman Circle since 1996. With all this, he still finds time to volunteer and help raise his four daughters (Meagan, Erin, Katie and Kristie) with his high school sweetheart and wife of 26 years, Ann. Some organizations he's volunteered his time for include: MDA, Make-A-Wish Foundation, The Children's Miracle Network, Habitat for Humanity and Manager of Bergen Beach youth organization girl's softball (champions of 10u, 12u 14u & 16u) St. Edmund H.S. Girls Softball and the St. Bernard Basketball programs. He is also a proud member of the Knights of Columbus.
