When it comes to selling luxury real estate, the quality of the marketing needs to meet or exceed the quality of the property. That’s where Marketing Manager Kyle Zabelny comes in. From designing, launching, and managing paid ad campaigns for our listings and property videos to creating and sending newsletters and e-blasts, everything Kyle does has one purpose—to get your property in front of as many qualified buyers as possible.
With over 15 years of experience in client development, communications, and public relations, Kyle understands that direct marketing is just the tip of the iceberg. Beyond his daily oversight of the RJC website, YouTube channel, and social media platforms, Kyle focuses on big-picture marketing endeavors—like building valuable, long-term relationships with potential buyers by planning unforgettable events.

On top of everything else, Kyle supports our agents by scheduling showings, inspections, and appraisals so they can focus on what they do best—showing and selling high-end homes.
Kyle’s greatest strengths are his creativity, drive, technological acumen, and leadership. His primary focus is to leverage his considerable knowledge of local real estate marketing trends to continually increase brand positioning, build client relations, and drive business results. He thrives on challenges, particularly those that expand the company’s reach and personal achievements.
When not working on behalf of our clients, Kyle enjoys spending time with his wife, son, and daughter—especially if it involves a camping or snowboarding trip. A hockey lover through and through, Kyle is a huge fan of the Vegas Golden Knights and a season ticket holder for the Henderson Silver Knights. He also plans to develop an online platform that will allow people to learn about, connect with, and donate to the charities that matter most to them.
Describing the layout and features of a home is important, but telling the story of that home is essential.

He has written for multiple Las Vegas publications, including DTLV.com, Life is Beautiful, and Vegas Seven Magazine.

When Andy isn’t writing copy for the Rob Jensen Company, he spends his time traveling with his fiancé, working on a saga of science fiction novels, or finding other creative projects to get involved with.
