Get to Know Steve Kent

Leonardo da Vinci revolutionized the art world during the Renaissance. In capturing an enigmatic smile in oils on an ordinary wooden canvas, the master went far beyond established standards and created a work so unique and puzzling that the Mona Lisa has perhaps become the most valuable work of art and most recognized face in the world. Leonardo’s contribution forever raised the bar and redefined the world’s concept of quality.

Meet Steve Kent Patron of the arts, and connoisseur of culture and fine living, he is considered by many of his friends and associates to be a modern renaissance man.

Renaissance Man But like any true renaissance man, Steve is very passionate about art and is committed to it’s perpetuation. As a collector, Steve is especially proud of a recent acquisition; a painting from Russian artist Yuri Gorbachev (nephew of Mikhail Gorbachev). Even more recently, Steve Lady on Sea Wall - Steve Kenthas taken up oil painting as a new challenge and spends several hours a week working on improving his skill.

Steve is also somewhat of a gourmet chef and enjoys preparing all sorts of dishes when friends come over. You’ll find him hard at work, slicing and dicing away in the kitchen while Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony plays in the background, as he meticulously prepares a new dish from his ever expanding repertoire. And when Steve isn’t busy with his epicurean fare, you’ll find him sitting in his favorite chair reading a book or writing a new chapter in his ongoing novel.

Having an engineering background Steve is also a wiz at anything mechanical and recently enjoyed restoring a 1980 Fiat Spider that he likes to take out for a spin in the local countryside.

Relentless Pursuit. While Steve is fond of golf, cooking and enjoying all the area has to offer, his true passion lies in helping people. For Steve, nothing is more important than being there and doing everything he can to deliver the quality service his clients have come to expect of him. “My clients are too important and there is too much at stake for me to give them anything less than my very best,” he says. Like Leonardo, Steve has raised the bar when it comes to his craft and is dedicated to achieving his clients’ goals. His relentless pursuit of excellence drives him to constantly redefine the meaning of quality.
