Shawnee, KS Real Estate Agent, serving Shawnee, KS homes, metro KC Real Estate, Johnson County real estate, Overland Park, Lenexa, DeSoto,Mission, Olathe, Kansas City, KS homes. Licensed in MO and KS.
Shawnee KS Real Estate Agent
As a Shawnee Ks real estate agent, I serve my clients with all of the knowledge, skills and experien ce I have. As a girl growing up in a small town in Iowa, my dad and grandfather taught me the ins and outs of homebuilding as I worked in the business. I fell in love with a guy who built houses. When we married, we always had a project going and I was learning what makes a house a well constructed property.
In college I studied marketing and finance and earned my MBA at a time when it was rare for a woman to earn that degree. I've never been afraid to break new ground. My academic background enables me to put together a Customized Marketing Strategy for each of my Kansas City real estate listings. Recognizing that almost 90% of buyers begin their search for homes on the internet, I invested time and money to learn how to best market my seller's listings on the internet. I admit it keeps me hopping to keep up with technology. I just know that if buyers begin searching on the internet, I will be there and have my seller's homes well positioned for a sale and closing.
Buying and selling real estate, even under the best of circumstances, is stressful. Many times life changes that are stressful themselves are often pushing the need for the real estate transaction. I take pride in being able to help people reduce the stress in their transaction. I am recognized as an agent who stays calm. Anticipating possible "glitches" and regular communication with all of the parties involved help reduce the stresses inherent in a transaction. My job's about helping you make good decisions and taking steps along the way to reduce the stress and hassle that can be a part of a real estate transaction. Together, we will create a plan that will sell your home. If you are looking for a home to buy, we will create a plan that identifies your needs and goals and helps you find the home that best meets those goals.
Serving the Kansas City Real Estate Market
I specialize in the Kansas City metro area real estate, most particularly in Johnson County real estate, Shawnee real estate, and Overland Park, Kansas real estate. As a long time Johnson County resident, I am familiar with the area and can speak to the excellence of the schools and services available here. My sons graduated from Shawnee Mission Northwest and continue to make their homes in the area. I also serve Wyandotte County, Leavenworth County, and Kansas City, Mo.
I specialize in helping people with their real estate transactions. I love first time home buyers. As a former teacher, working with first time home buyers gives me an opportunity to continue to teach. If I can help them get into a home that fits their needs and budget, we can begin the process of building wealth for them. For most people their home is the cornerstone of their financial investments. Making the right first home decision can go a long way toward helping them build a strong financial future. Making the wrong choice may torpedo them in the wrong direction. As I think back on some of the first time home buyers I have worked with, I especially enjoyed working with Jody. Jody was someone who had made a lot of wrong decisions early in her life, but made a right decision to turn things around. She had made so many positive changes in her life when I met her. We found her a cute little house that fit her budget, her needs, and she and her daughter moved in. It was a joy to help her achieve her goals. Another first time home buying couple that I particularly enjoyed were Chester and Eileen. Chester and Eileen celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary shortly after they moved into their first home. They only regretted that they had waited so long.
Another group that I particularly enjoy working with are seniors. Many times seniors are making decisions to sell because of health reasons, death of a spouse, or some other life event that is forcing a decision they didn't want. I find that I am able to empathize with the losses they are feeling and help them move to the next stage of their life. I serve on the board with Johnson County Widowed Persons and can often help in ways unrelated to real estate, as well as serve their real estate needs. As a widow myself, I can relate to the sense of loss and provide a sense of hope for the future.
I have worked with a lot of investors and investment property and I am able to help them acquire property that makes sense from an investment point of view and eliminate the others. Investing in Kansas City real estate can be a strong wealth builder if you know what you're doing. I have enjoyed working with local investors, as well as out of the area investors who are attracted to our relative affordable homes. I help buyers and sellers make good decisions that move them toward their goals.
In summary, I have a broad range of experience in new construction, resale, investment property, and land. I've worked with property with septic systems and wells, as well as property in suburbia and the urban core. I can do short sales and negotiate on behalf of my sellers and buyers to move them to a better place. I put my knowledge to work for my clients. They are the most important part of the equation.
Testimonials for Lea Deo, Shawnee KS Realtor
Lea, we wanted to personally thank you for helping us sell our Olathe house. It has been a stressful time for us, and you were a Godsend! We are now praying for a healthier and more peaceful 2007. We wish the same to you and your family. God bless you, G & D
Thank you so much. All your hard work is greatly appreciated!! :) Thanks. Mike and Lisa

Thinking of trying to sell our home by yourself to save some money" I tried to sell my property on my own for several weeks thinking I could save paying an agent a commission. However, I found out the advertising was expensive and I always had to be available to show the home and never knew if the person coming to view my home was really qualified.
Lea noticed my For Sale By Owner sign and rather than being pushy and telling me all of the reasons I needed to work with an agent, she simply offered to bring by some forms that I would need if I were to sell my home. She also did a free comparative market analysis and was honest in her price evaluation of my home. After several weeks of frustration, I finally realized I was really losing money and time in the long run by not letting an experienced agent take care of the etails of selling my home, marketing my home to a much broader market and knowing there to go for inspections, title work, surveys, etc. Lea listed my home and had it under contract in 8 days. She has continually monitored my transaction and I kow all of the house details are being taken care of professionally and on time. I have been impressed with Lea's professionalism, willingness to listen to my concerss, and her ability to get the job done right the first time! I HIGHLY recommend Lea. Sincerely, Irene Neybert
"Our experience with Lea was just wonderful. Her knowledge of the current market situation and solid approach made our home sale very comfortable and a low stress situation. Having Lea perform as the leader of our team freed my wife and me to concentrate on other things prior to our move. Lea's work ethic is nothing short of sterling. Using her was the best decision we could have made. This opinion comes from two individuals (tight wads) that had no intention of utilizing a realtor. This alone speaks volumes regarding Lea's character." Jeff and Onalee Hoge
