Story by Ann Butenas | Sponsored Content
Buying and/or selling a home is a monumental decision and comes with many concerns and worries, as well as many rewards and victories. When you put your trust in one of Kansas City’s most trusted and highly-respected real estate teams, those rewards and victories continually trump the worries and concerns, making the entire transaction process a highly-enjoyable experience on countless levels.
Tradition Home Group, an award-winning team of agents led by lifelong friends Shannon Stumpenhaus and Nickole Stark-Glover continues to break records year after year, as this group is dedicated to achieving results and providing a highly positive customer experience. This is accomplished in part by doing many things well, but in particular by fully taking care of each client from start to finish. Full attention to superior customer service is the ultimate key to this team’s success. Providers of a boutique-like real estate experience, Tradition Home Group provides a high level of service; a high level of ethics; and a strong commitment to always doing the right thing, every time.
“We approach this as more of a people business than a house business,” emphasized Stumpenhaus.
In becoming the best, this team understands that embracing change is a part of the equation for success. These past 20 months have created waves of change across all industries, and the real estate market is no exception. With no two days the same in this industry, the trusted experts at Tradition Home Group are always at the ready to resolve any issue that might arise with confidence and ease.
“We are problem solvers and highly task-oriented,” expressed Stark-Glover. “Every transaction is different and that means there will be challenges. However, when we are given a challenge, we never say we can’t solve the problem. We can, and we will. Every transaction brings us new people, new families and new circumstances, which we love.”
Trust in the guidance
“I love working with Nickole because I have complete trust in her guidance,” indicated Renee, a repeat client of the Tradition Home Group team. “She has sold two homes for us, and helped us purchase two homes as well. When I follow her advice on pricing and décor changes, the house sells quickly and at the right price. She knows the market, knows what people are looking for in a home, and has great instincts all around. And she’ll be straightforward with you about what you need to do to be attractive to buyers.”
A self-described no-nonsense person herself, Renee has enjoyed working with Nickole, as Nickole is known for her tenacity and perseverance when it comes to her savvy negotiating skills.
“Nickole is a great partner for me because she also moves quickly on all fronts. She never stops moving, communicating, and hustling on your behalf,” expressed Renee. “I recommend Nickole to everyone I know, and she has now partnered with my mother, my sister and several of my friends to buy and sell homes. I know when I recommend her, that my people are going to get the best of the best.”
Even “virtually” at the top of their game.
Having recently relocated to the metro from Michigan, client Cara, who lived in the area from 2012-2017, knew working with Shannon and the Tradition Home Group team would offer the results she desired.
“Shannon helped sell our home when we left Kansas City, and was actually our neighbor at the time,” expressed Cara. When it was time to come back to the area, Cara immediately turned to Shannon for her assistance.
“She is extremely communicative and responsive,” emphasized Cara.
Cara and her family worked with Shannon via video walk-throughs to find the right home for them, choosing their new place without ever having set foot in it.
“We only saw our home through video,” noted Cara. “We would not have done this with any other Realtor, as Shannon knew what we liked and knew what to look for. She also has a great eye for interior design. I honestly don’t think we could have done this without her. Also, she recommends some of the best contractors. She just makes things easier for her clients.”
The common denominator among these clients is the understanding of the team approach put forth by Shannon and Nickole. When you work with them, you get the benefits of working with the entire Tradition Home Group for support. Team members regularly consult with each other on pricing decisions and other recommendations. Plus, clients also get to know the entire team because every team member is on the same page, working with clients as needed to manage the entire transaction from start to close.
“Our management team is on the forefront of change, and we’ve strengthened our staffing component to handle future growth,” said Stumpenhaus. “In this business, it is important to be represented by someone who knows what they are doing. With a market that is ever-changing, it is good to have a Realtor who pays attention to those changes and offers cutting-edge programs and services to their clients.”
