Her talent lies in crafting think-outside-the-box marketing strategies for the homes she lists.  “I love my hometown and truly want my clients to feel the same way when they find a home in a community that is perfect for them,” Mandy says. “My goal is not to just sell you a house. It’s to find you the right house that I know I can sell for you again.”

Testimonials:  Mandy

Client Brent Scott had this to say about Mandy:  “Mandy is amazing. She went above and beyond. She spent nearly a full day helping me stage an empty house, helped me move heavy furniture and even brought her own personal furniture for us to use. I could not be happier and have recommended her to everyone I know.””I have dealt with Mandy on numerous properties and I am still amazed how fun and easy the whole process is!!! She is the real deal!” – Clients Philip and Ashley Rice

Becca Kyger

Rebecca (Becca) Kyger has a promise she makes to each of her clients: That she will deliver the best in service and professionalism when you work together to buy or sell your home. Her business and sales background have taught her that it’s all about SERVICE…and she delivers every single time! “I want my clients to always walk away feeling like they have a friend they can call anytime. I’ll always have a solution for you, whatever it may be.”

Testimonials:  Becca

“Becca helped us get our house on the market within 4 days of deciding to put it on the market. She had a quick eye for what needed to be done, and the house was sold within 2 weeks. She was able to negotiate the price fairly so we didn’t lose any money on the house. For our new house, she gave referrals for businesses that could assist with paint, carpet, hardwoods, etc. Trusting her experience, this saved me a tremendous amount of time easily moving into our new home. I’ve moved several times though the military, and she has been the best realtor I’ve ever used.” – Clients Steven and Heather HolmesClients Jeff and Julie Ralston had this to say about Becca:  “From the moment we hired Becca we felt she went to work for us, from planning the sale to staging the house if it needed (to be) done, she did it. During the contract portion of our sale, Becca stayed in touch with us, even while she was on a family vacation. That level of attention is unheard of, and was very much appreciated. We could not have asked for more from her and would recommend her to anyone without hesitation. Thank you Becca!!”The Cami Jones Collaborative team is committed to helping our sellers realize top dollar for their homes!  We offer best-in-class marketing support, and you can expect things like professional staging services, photography, expertly-made flyers, postcards, and a smart social media strategy.  Contact us here or call us today at 913-402-2550 and let us show you how we use the latest and most effective technology to market it in a variety of ways.  

Low inventory levels- Cami’s team can help sellers & buyers!

The lack of available real estate inventory results in a “seller’s market,” posing a challenge for buyers.  It can be a good thing, depending on what side of the transaction you find yourself!  The Kansas City real estate market has been very hot, often resulting in multiple offers on Day 1.  Many sellers find themselves receiving OVER asking price with no contingencies attached. A hot market is typically good news for home sellers: inventory is low, and competition is high.

This process can be sped up even MORE if your house has some or all of the following:

  • Custom/upgraded finishes
  • Priced right, under the guidance of a real estate expert
  • Desirable school district
  • Finished lower level
  • Fresh, clean paint and floor coverings
  • Desirable neighborhood with nearby amenities
  • Location near schools, highway access, shopping, restaurants

On the flip side, buyers will be up against a lot of other people vying for the same piece of property, and up against a short supply of existing homes.  Also, first-time buyers in high demand areas may find that their best offer is beaten out by cash buyers and investors.  Use an experienced real estate agent (like any one of us on the Cami Jones Collaborative Team!) to help you get a handle on the market and look over what’s available.  You will need to decide where you can or can’t (or aren’t willing to) compromise.  Remember, finishes and appliances and paint colors are easy to change, location isn’t.  (Read our previous post on HOT neighborhoods in south Johnson County!)As a buyer, you’ll want to get your financing lined up so you don’t waste any time in a hot market.  Once you find the house…be ready to pull the trigger with your offer! And be ready to offer without contingencies.  In a hot market, sellers will likely take the cleanest offer:  the one with no contingencies, the one with the most money down and the one offering the quickest (or most preferable) closing date.
