Attitude of Gratitude from the KBT Realty Group Team

With the spirit of Thanksgiving, we are looking back at a year that has been fraught with challenges, and overflowing with opportunity.

KBT Realty Group and our partners have had the privilege of serving hundreds of clients with what for many is the largest financial transaction of their lives: buying and selling real estate. Despite the challenges of a global pandemic, lockdowns/re-openings, travel restrictions, personal interaction restrictions, and redefining the way we all are managing our work- and home-lives, at KBT, we have both survived, and thrived.






I am so thankful for the continued support of my friends, clients throughout the whacky year!

Becky Brown, Co-owner, KBT Realty Group



Thankful for our staff, our terrific agents, our wonderful clients and of course, the joy of being with family during the holidays!

Kirk Pugh, Co-owner, KBT Realty Group



I am thankful to live in such a supportive community and the ability to continue to serve ...

Celebrate National Chili Day with an Award-winning Chili from KBT Realty

What better way to celebrate National Chili Day than with a pot of a certified, award-winning chili?

Becky Brown, Broker/Realtor, is generously sharing her recipe for Venison Chili. Becky's chili, which she adapted from a classic Better Homes & Gardens recipe, won first place in January 2011's Keller Williams Chili Cook-off.

"I wish I could say that there was a large cash prize," Becky laughs, "but I had bragging rights for a year."

The recipe below yields plenty to serve a group of 12 to 15, depending upon appetites.


Venison Chili Recipe
1 pound ground venison (you may substitute beef, chicken, or turkey)
1 pound venison sausage (you may substitute with beef, chicken, or turkey)
2-1/2 cups chopped onion

5 cloves of garlic, minced
1 15 oz. can of dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 15oz. can of pinto beans, rinsed and drained
