Originally from Manhattan, Kevin Quat moved to Savannah by way of Bluffton last year to be closer to his family and further pursue our rapidly expanding development market. As the owner and president of an already well established property management company, Absolute Island Management, Quat was an obvious fit for the Judge Realty team. Before the transition to Judge, he grew his own company to manage more than 500 units with a collective portfolio of over $100M.
Of the transition, Judge founder and CEO Lori Judge said, “It’s exciting to bring in new blood that already has such a handle on how the market works. The Bluffton market is a little different than Savannah’s but his experience and past results speak for themselves. I’m really looking forward to seeing how he carves out his place with us.”
Quat, a licensed sales agent in both South Carolina and Georgia, hopes to start working with buyers and investors. “I want to build a network of investors so that when an opportunity presents itself I can secure the equity for new developments and help Savannah realize its potential,” he said. After graduating from Emory University in 2003, he started his career as a leasing agent on a 640-unit, garden style apartment community, working for Julian LeCraw and Company in Atlanta. Within his first six months, he was a top agent for the company, generating in excess of a million dollars of rental revenue per year. He has held every position in the property management field – from accounts payable/receivable, to multi-site manager, and asset manager.
Moving forward, Quat wants to streamline the rental procedures for Judge Rents and then transition into developments that can be managed by our company. He has the experience and knowledge, the eye for unlocking potential, and the drive to make it happen. We’re extremely happy to welcome him to the team and look forward to seeing him find his place in Savannah’s market.
