I love to write about my neighborhood, the Brookside area of Kansas City, where I live in the Armour Hills subdivision. I keep it short, simple, and to the point with articles about general real estate topics so you have current, useful information about real estate trends and news. Sometimes I write about local politics, new homes for sale, and of course, my clients! Thanks for reading! I welcome your feedback.
