Colleen Rippey Publisher of Baltimore Real Producers
On Episode 83 of The No Limits Selling Podcast, we have Colleen Rippey, Owner, and CEO at Coastal Real Producers and Baltimore Real Producers. Colleen started her professional career as a sophomore in college while earning her Bachelor’s in marketing. She was recruited by Vector Marketing, a subsidiary of the Cutco Corporation. Very quickly, Colleen realized she had an important skill- she could sell. Colleen was able to travel through earned incentive trips, hone her sales skills, and earn six figures while selling Cutco knives to consumers for 5 years.
In 2013, she made a shift in her business and started to focus on selling Cutco to Realtors as closing gifts. She then achieved Hall of Fame status and sold over $2 million of Cutco, making her one of the best in Cutco history.
As she spent her time with Realtors and affiliates alike, she started to realize there wasn’t a platform that brought the real estate community together across brokerage lines.
In 2017, Baltimore Real Producers was launched. BRP is a platform that curates connections and collaborations between the top-producing Realtors and affiliates in central Maryland. This is accomplished primarily via telling stories in our monthly print & digital magazine, hosting regular events, and a private Facebook community.
This year, Baltimore Real Producers received the “Best Content Award”. BRP is Woman and Queer owned.
Currently, Colleen lives in Baltimore City with her wife Jilleien (and Editor-in-Chief of Baltimore Real Producers magazine) with their spoiled puppy Petey. Most of their spare time is spent running their nonprofit Love and Lunches, which serves to feed the homeless and hungry in Baltimore City every week.
