Episode 050 – Kyle Malnati: Calibrate Real Estate’s broker-owner & true entrepreneur
Marketing RV with Ranalli & Volpe is parked at Zoom for a vigorous discussion with entrepreneur commercial real estate broker Kyle Malnati. Calibrate Real Estate operates out of Denver, Colorado. It’s a boutique, broker-owned commercial and residential outfit that employs a dozen people.
With a degree in finance, Kyle explains how his education set him up for success in commercial real estate, something he did not originally set out to do but stumbled upon after earning his degree. Some 15 years later, Kyle enjoys selling financial assets, which is how he views his vocation.
Kyle is quite candid about personal events in his life that led to making charity a part of his business model. Today, Missions Ministries is the main benefactor of Calibrate Real Estate. His team gets involved financially, as well as physically, building housing for impoverished residents of Juarez, TX. Kyle credits his faith and upbringing for laying the foundation that led him to boldly take on a series of charitable causes.
