ReeceNichols / Shewmaker has become the "go-to" real estate professionals in southern Kansas City’s surrounding southeastern rural communities. Karen Shewmaker began the Pleasant Hills, later to become the JC Nichols/Shewmaker Real Estate Company in 1980, with the sole purpose of bringing people together to live, work and play in a less hectic, hometown atmosphere. In 1992, her daughter, Jody joined the firm with a commitment to helping home buyers sort out their choices and find the ultimate home that fits their needs.
With nearly 100 years of combined experience and expertise in the local real estate market, ReeceNichols / Shewmaker has become the most active real estate specialist in and around Pleasant Hill, as well as the largest and most respected. This level of success can only be achieved through a dedication to exceptional customer service.
Jody Shewmaker attributes their success to the extraordinary agents and staff they have assembled. "Success is the people that surrounds us,” she says. ” In addition to our professional agents who are knowledgeable and passionate about our industry, we offer a ‘a family of services’. Everything is done in house. Our loan company, Bank of Kansas City, the largest bank in the Nation, and Title Company allows us to provide a remarkable home buying and selling experience. We provide the latest information available regarding the housing market.”
Shewmaker’s passion and experience has propelled them to be ranked in the Top 25 Real Estate Companies in 2016 by the Kansas City Business Journal. And they have accomplished this with just 17 incredible agents in the company. This is quite a feat considering the relatively small size of their office in comparison to many of the Mega real estate firms in the Metro.
They currently market seven new home communities: Hickory Hills, Bedford Downs, Harper Farms, Ka-Ron Crossing, Woodland Acres, Tall Grass and Timber Creek in and around the Pleasant Hill area. These communities have homes ranging in price from the $200s - 400s+.
