Libby Kirwin lives in Newport, Rhode Island where she was born and raised. Before deciding to settle in Newport, Libby explored several career paths with extensive travel opportunities throughout New England, Florida and the Caribbean. These experiences have lent tremendous value to her business approach and commitment to her clients.
Libby graduated from the esteemed Massachusetts College of Art with a degree in Graphic Design. Her passion for aesthetic, detail and design is evident to this day. Subsequent to her graduation, she worked in the Boston real estate market through 2000 and moved on to explore the mega-yacht sales industry, serving as a crew placement manager & broker's assistant for the International Yacht Collection. In 2002, Kirwin called upon her graphic design & travel experience to create Jack and Josie's Coffee Lounge in Newport. After it's success, Libby sold the restaurant and returned to real estate full time. Libby was able to work for a variety of firms in the Newport area, gaining a solid grasp of the market and each firms approach to such business.
In March of 2009, Libby launched LKPM and subsequently, LKRE. Her mission was simple: blend her positive experiences from each firm, while supplementing with a fresh, modern take on the industry. She believes that in such a dynamic market, every client deserves the exclusive boutique approach.
Perfect Day in Newport?"Watching my husband surf on a hot summer morning at 2nd beach while I walk with my dog, followed by lunch on an out door patio downtown on the harbor with ice cold oysters on the half shell and an evening cook out at Gooseberry Beach watching the sun go down with my family!"
