Founded in the heartland of America, Weichert Realtors, Welch & Company is a Kansas City-based real estate company that prides itself on specializing in new construction homes. From its modest beginnings, Weichert has grown to be a leading name in the real estate industry, fostering an impressive track record marked by honesty, intelligence, and a genuine care for the communities they serve.
Founded and owned by Kent Welch, Weichert was formed in 2004 with a focus on new home marketing. Since then, the company has grown exponentially to include 35 new home communities and 5,000+ future homes/homes sites in collaboration with 80+ builders while serving 14 cities in and around the metro area. Weichert caters to all price points and also works in the resale of homes.
In addition to the expertise and extraordinary leadership of Welch, another integral part of the Weichert family is Pam Baker, a Licensed Broker in Kansas and Missouri and Director of Expansion and Relations for the #1 ranked (in 2022) Weichert Realtors/Welch & Co. and as Client Care Manager for Suma Design, which is owned by her husband, Mark Sumada. Baker offers a full-service approach as a new construction specialist and Realtor.
Baker is a talented real estate agent with an impressive dual background in interior design and real estate brokerage. Alongside her work at Suma Design, Baker provides a comprehensive service as a new construction specialist and Realtor. She takes a holistic approach to home building by offering design, brokerage, and construction services, ensuring a simplified and integrated experience for her clients.
“I believe the key to our success lies in our focus on staying humble, being smart, and truly caring about others,” emphasized Welch, who gave a strong nod to Baker’s talents and professionalism.
“She is a true professional and one who conducts herself with such high standards,” he said. “Plus, we are such a good fit and are able to bounce ideas off each other.”
Baker is known for her attention to detail and her dedication to creating an enjoyable experience for her clients. Baker’s innate ability to connect with and understand her clients’ visions has made her an asset to her brokerage firm, ensuring they remain leaders in the industry. She cherishes the opportunity to provide unique and quality living spaces for her clients, focusing on innovation, environmental consciousness, and enhancing the quality of life.
Baker, along with the team at Weichert, invests in people – their clients, builders, developers, and their own team members. They have an unyielding belief in teamwork and relish the process of a project coming together. Their teamwork extends to the communities they serve, where they strive to create an environment of harmony, unity, and mutual respect. To that end, Weichert has also initiated Mi Gente KC, a bilingual arm of the company created to remain highly inclusive within their communities.
