Premier Market Leader
Story by Ann Butenas | Sponsored Content
The late Steve Jobs once pontificated, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” Bearing that sentiment in mind, it is no wonder top-performing real estate agent, Becky Harper, continues to excel in her field and exceed clients’ expectations without interruption. With an unwavering passion and commitment to her craft. In fact, the level of trust she builds in her clients allows her to successfully deliver unparalleled results time and time again. An agent who consistently keeps her clients’ interests at top of mind, it is no wonder she has been recognized in the top one percent of agents in the Kansas City area. If it is important to the client, it is extra important to Becky.
While Becky is not one to tend to her own ego, it is important to note her steadfast commitment to providing the best in service has garnered her a wealth of accolades and awards over the years. Becky is a Keller Williams Luxury Agent, making her a member of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, an exclusive international network of agents skilled in serving affluent buyers and sellers.
In addition to being recognized for such exemplary service, Becky was also named the Johnson County Premier Realtor in 2020, as well as in 2018 and 2019. Additionally, she is a member of the Agent Leadership Council (ALC) for Keller Williams Realty Partners, a highly distinguished honor for which one must be exclusively invited. Further, she is a top producing individual agent serving Kansas and Missouri. She also has something that cannot be measured in dollars and cents, and that is integrity and sincerity in all she does.
Becky is always in constant pursuit of positioning her clients to achieve the highest net, and she does this by being a top negotiator.
“I will always protect their money as if it were my own,” she asserted. “Follow through and follow up is what I believe has helped me achieve the level of success I have accomplished in real estate.”
Becky is the consummate subject matter expert as well. She can speak fluently to the local market yet has developed many Global Partners all over the world. If a client has decided to move from Kansas to out of state, she is able to connect a client to a market expert in any state they desire to relocate to. She is equally well-versed in contracts and the overall real estate process, and she has a thorough understanding of the industry, continually educating herself by plugging into all sources of industry-related information and classes that will keep her on the leading edge.
Becky also works for many clients who want to build a new home.
“I always say a person should build at least once in their life if they can,” she noted. “I have walked in their shoes firsthand. Building is a lot of work, and it takes a lot of patience and diligence, but so rewarding when completed.”
Becky also excels at forging positive relationships, even lifelong ones. Her upbeat and friendly personality easily draws people to her.
“I am purposeful, consistent, and dedicated,” she emphasized. “I will always strive to exceed each client’s expectations. I am goal driven for my clients as well as for myself. I will not stop until I get it done. I want to remain at top of mind for any needs my buyer or seller may have for all the years to come. I want to be their first call and their last call.”
Whether buyer or seller, the attention to service remains top notch.
With buyers, she conducts personal interviews to understand what they want, their lifestyles, their goals, and how they see themselves using their home. From there, she personally goes on a crusade looking at and researching as many homes as it takes to present to the clients. It saves the clients time and gives Harper the opportunity to showcase her ability to deliver specialized and detailed customer service lessening the burden on her clients and bringing the best to them.
For sellers, Becky never loses any traction, either.
“I work diligently every week to showcase a listing through broker open tours, weekly Open Houses, Matterport 3-D image tours of the home and the use of drones to always showcase large lots on which the home sits,” she noted. “I take marketing beyond listing a home in the MLS to ensure I promote a listing both locally and to international buyers. I have the most amazing photographers and videographers to showcase a home in the best light. After all, I have just three seconds to grab a buyer’s attention before they move on to the next home. It has to be perfect.”
But don’t just take our word for it!
“I would recommend Becky to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. She is extremely knowledgeable and never stops working for you. Becky is very well connected and helped us with every aspect of getting our home ready to sell. With Becky’s experience and knowledge of selling houses, we were able to sell our home well above list price within two days of putting it on the market. She is very business savvy and was able to help us field multiple offers on our home so that we chose the best offer for us. Becky made selling our home go so smoothly that we retained her to help with the purchase and building of our new home. She has been involved in every aspect of the building process. She has represented us so that we have been able to get the best deal possible throughout the building process. Becky has been able to negotiate supply costs, even contacting the President of the home building company to assure that we had the best price, even during the supply shortage, to minimize industry price increases. Becky is very detailed and is always on top of every aspect of the building process. Despite being a highly sought-after Real Estate Professional and working with multiple clients, Becky always kept in constant contact with us and made us feel like we were a top priority.” ~ Aaron D
