There are 2 Kansas Cities ("KC" for short): Kansas City in Missouri (Jackson & Platte Counties) and Kansas City in Kansas ( Wyandotte County ). Many surrounding counties and cities comprise the greater Kansas City area. Some of the largest ones are Kansas City, Lee's Summit, Independence, Blue Springs, Grandview, Raytown, Leawood, Lenexa, Shawnee, Overland Park, & Olathe. Shawnee Mission in Kansas is not a city, but a postal address (& school district) which includes all the cities in Johnson County, KS except for Olathe. The cities of Overland Park and Shawnee both in Johnson County, KS have been on the 2010 list of the top 25 places in which to live. Therefore, Overland Park homes and Shawnee homes have become popular real estate searches.
Kansas City is well known for its many fountains, parks, boulevards, barbeque, K C strip steaks, Legendary Lamar Hunt's Chiefs, Royals, KU Jay Hawks, baseball's Buck O'Neal, County Club Plaza holiday lights, Russell Stover sweets, Hallmark Cards, H & R Block, 20th Century Investments, Sprint campus, Cerner, Harry Truman's Independence home & museum, cartoonist Walt Disney, famous artist Thomas Hart Benton, jazz musician Charlie Parker, Count Basie, Marilyn Mayes, purse designer Kate Spade, Garmin Co GPS, psychic Sylvia Brown, William Rockhill Nelson Museum, bio research, affordable housing, convenient air port, friendly helpful people, "crazy little women" & much more. Our Kansas City area will thrill and impress those who relocate here.
"Everything is up to date in Kansas City"(known as "the Heart of America)is a line from the famous song about our city. Overland Park, KS has consistently been voted one of the top 25 best United States cities. Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine recently ranked KC as #6 "smartest places to live." Several area school districts are award winning and among the top in the nation. Many universities/colleges are located in or nearby Kansas City. There are many cultural activities, several casinos, golf, lake, and maintenance provided communities. KC enjoys the 4 seasons with relatively mild winters (snowing only a few times a year). Recently the Piper area in Kansas City, KS was selected as the best spot for Universal Studios newest location. This area is starting to boom. Many hotels, a huge water park, and possibly a casino are in the future.
Tornados in Kansas/Missouri ("The Wizard of Oz") are not as numerous as in many other states. Basements, however, are popular here just in case! Home prices are affordable with choices of Kansas City homes for sale in city or suburban living. Single family homes, 2 stories, split levels, condos, lofts, town homes, patio homes, farms (equestrian properties), airplane/hanger/runway homes, lake homes, golf properties, half duplex, full duplex to multi-plexes, apartments and other investment properties are available. 1031 exchanges are often done by local and out of towners . Many home styles are found here. A single story level is often referred to as "ranch" style. Reverse story & half has become popular. One or two bed rooms are on the main level and the rest are in a walk-out or walk-up finished basement. As our population ages, having a bed room on the first floor is in demand. Split entry is another name for bi-level style. Unlike in many other cities, the square footage of a resale home is typically not on the listing information. All brick homes are not very common. Brick trim or mostly brick fronts are found here. There are luxury homes for sale equal to those seen in "The Rich and Famous". Some are even on small area lakes or back to golf courses. My easy to use web site is very informative and helpful in finding Kansas City real estate whether you want to buy, sell, build or invest.

My web presence is extensive. Just Google "Sharon Sigman" and you will see. I own over 1000 domain names that pertain to real estate in Kansas City. These point to my many websites.

If you currently own property and are thinking of listing it, this site contains information about preparing your home for sale, selecting the right agent, pricing your home correctly, marketing it effectively, going through the inspection processes, and receiving a timely market evaluation.
Now more than ever it is important to have a Realtor who knows how to market your home to get showings and top dollar. If you are a buyer, you will want a Realtor who has a lot of experience. CRS (certified residential specialist) is one of the highest designations a Realtor can receive. We often refer our out of state clients to a CRS real estate agent who has maximum experience.
