    Rado Illo | Transition from Hockey Hero to Real Estate Pro

    Welcome to episode 23 of Pucks to Properties where we skate through the remarkable journey of Rado Illo, a former professional hockey player who pivoted from scoring goals on the ice to scoring sales in the real estate market.

    Rado's odyssey began as a 16-year-old moving to the USA, swiftly climbing the ranks in the hockey world with the Tri-City Storm, making waves in the World Juniors Championship, and being drafted by the NHL's Anaheim Ducks. His time at Bemidji State University and traverses through various AHL and ECHL teams showcased his adaptability and tenacity, qualities that would serve him well beyond the rink.

    As the skates came off in 2016, Rado didn't just hang up his jersey; he traded it for a new kind of uniform - the suit of a real estate agent. Now a vital part of The Koehler Bortnick Team, Rado channels the work ethic and team spirit from his hockey days into becoming a top-tier agent in Kansas City.

    This episode delves into how the same drive that propelled him across the ice now fuels his passion for helping clients navigate one of their most significant life decisions.

    Join us as Rado Illo shares his insights on the parallels between hockey and real estate, the importance of listening and meeting the needs of clients, and how creating lasting relationships is not just a goal in hockey, but the ultimate score in real estate.
