Kerry Fitzpatrick holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and a Master’s Degree in Administration from Nova Southeastern University. She worked as a first-grade teacher in a low-income school, spending her time and resources giving back to her students and making a big impact in their lives. Wanting to make a bigger difference in the education of her students, Kerry would then advance to Administration.
Kerry had a desire to start a family. To fulfill this dream, Kerry resigned from the School Board. She was soon recruited to work in the residential Real Estate industry where she was able to quickly find a spot in which she could express her unique vision for “making a difference”. She quickly became intoxicated by the struggling masses in the industry, immediately noticing a void in ‘pass-me-down’ wisdom. She recognized a palpable, if not desperate, need for education in residential Real Estate. Her Real Estate Brokerage quickly became known as “South Florida’s Premier Teaching Training and Coaching Organization” offering live in-office coursework multiple times per week.
Kerry was instrumental in creating an education system inside of Exit Team Realty. The formula that Kerry created helped grow the brokerage to over 500 Associates. By 2004, Exit Team Realty, rooted in Kerry’s Vision for “education first,” had quickly become a RIS Media Power Brokerage (Top 300 Brokerages in the U.S) and was twice featured as a National Company to Watch in residential Real Estate.
In 2009 Kerry launched a broader, subscription based, online education center known as Associate Worx. The fee-based broadcast followed Kerry’s own Agent education formula and immediately went viral among Real Estate Brokerages and the Agents they served. Mortgage Bankers began to seek Kerry out to sponsor and be featured in the Realtor Broadcast phenomenon. One bank offered a statewide exclusive relationship that was white labeled AEM WORX in Florida, Missouri, North Carolina; Academy Home Mortgage Worx in Utah and Colorado; Southeast Mortgage Worx in Georgia; AmeriFirst Worx in Texas and Oklahoma, and finally AnnieMac Worx in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
AnnieMac Home Mortgage built a Realtor Centric Culture in the Mortgage Industry and they built it around Kerry Fitzpatrick’s AnnieMac Worx Productivity Platform. AnnieMac negotiated an exclusive white label that dramatically effected recruitment and productivity for their Mortgage Professionals in 32 states.
Today, Kerry runs AnnieMac Worx, The My Worx Suite Technology Solution for Realtors centered in education and “pass-me-down best practices” in residential Real Estate.
