Welcome to Mickey’s Midtown Kansas City! My name is Mickey Coulter, and I am a real estate agent for Better Homes here in Kansas City. When I am not selling homes, I am out and about looking for fun events happening around the Metro. Mickey’s Midtown Kansas City will have short features on upcoming events in the performing arts, concerts, and venues and sporting events. I also will feature unique homes and neighborhoods in and around Kansas City. And don’t forget to watch my HGTV House Hunter episode I did a couple of years ago; it’s a hoot! There’s so much more to come and not only about Kansas City homes and events — but I will also feature Kansas City businesses, charities and extraordinary people. Be sure to check out What’s for Dinner, which is just a short acknowledgement of a great dining experience I’ve recently had! Please contact me with any upcoming event I should know about and enjoy Mickey’s Midtown Kansas City!
