Tenpenny is also a shareholder partner of two Keller Williams offices, owned by Kevin Chadwick, a native of the area and a local entrepreneur.

Chadwick said enthusiastically: “I have had the pleasure of working with Rachel for over ten years. She has been at the helm as CEO and partner in the company. Rachel has created a track record of success for our company and all of our agents. I know Rachel is the kind of leader who will continue to grow, learn and be successful in all her endeavors. Our entire Keller Williams family looks forward to continuing to work alongside her as she embarks on an exciting new venture. “
