As of November 2, 2015 I have been named the Team Leader of Keller Williams Realty, Diamond Partners, Inc of Olathe, Kansas. It’s an exciting time for me as not only do I deem this position to be a challenge I’m ready to take on but I also get to keep Ad Astra Realty Property Management that just keeps growing and growing.
Let’s talk about this for a minute.
Kansas City Real Estate Investing
Over the years I have been helping to train real estate agents on how to work with real estate investors. In fact, I have even set up a website to help train real estate agents on how to help people who buy and sell income property. You can find that site at ChrisLengquist.com.
If you are, have been or will be an income property owner looking for professional help with the purchase or sale of a rental property, feel free to still contact me. I can assure you that I am overseeing the process and that the agent you work with will be well trained in the counselling of real estate investors.
Kansas City Property Management
Ad Astra Realty Property Management is still going strong. We will soon exceed 300 homes under management and while the company is still owned and overseen by me, Jimmy Geisler is (and has been) running the day to day operations. Jimmy came to us in the Spring of 2014 looking to expand his rental real estate holdings and soon thereafter joined our team as a property manager. A sharp guy, he jumped in and learned from our existing team and melded that with his own personal experiences to quickly earn the right to run the business which freed me up for other projects.
Keller Williams Realty, Olathe Team Leader
Many of you know I have been a real estate agent since 2002 and have been with Olathe’s Keller Williams Realty since 2004. I left in December 2015 to found Ad Astra Realty. As luck would have it I found myself in conversations with the Operating Partner after the then Team Leader decided that her Mega Agent business was where she wanted to concentrate. And since I had decided that I was going to start Teaching | Speaking | Coaching over at ChrisLengquist.com (a website in continual development) the fit to come back to Diamond Partners to Teach | Speak | Coach and Recruit seemed like a natural perfect.
This is an exciting time in my professional life. And I want to THANK YOU for the many years many of you have followed me on this blog and across the web. It has been, and continues to be, my honor to help people learn what makes a good investment property, a good property manager and a good real estate agent.
We’re just adding a chapter to the book here. I’m not going anywhere away from the blog. Now let’s have some more fun. And, yes, this would have been posted yesterday but I was too consumed with the Royals World Series Win!!!
