brookside shops: REMIX-A New Consignment Shop in Brookside - 07/30/19 12:59 PM

brookside shops: New Brookside Shop to Explore: Design in the City - 09/25/17 12:44 PM

I love to write about my neighborhood, the Brookside area of Kansas City, where I live in the Armour Hills subdivision. I keep it short, simple, and to the point with articles about general real estate topics so you have current, useful information about real estate trends and news. Sometimes I write about local politics, new homes for sale, and of course, my clients! Thanks for reading! I welcome your feedback.
