Having spent most her life in Kansas City, Shannon Stumpenhaus is the very definition of what it means to be a truly authentic local. One of a few agents with experience in all four corners of her colorful city, Stumpenhaus has been in real estate for almost two decades now and is heavily involved in the Women's Council of Realtors, going as far to serve a term as president. Stumpenhaus got her start when a former real estate agent suggested she give it a whirl, and, after taking that leap of faith, she found her passion.
Earning a bachelor's degree in merchandising with an emphasis in interior design has equipped Stumpenhaus with a unique skill set. For sellers, Stumpenhaus has an eye for staging that helps emphasize the finest qualities of their house, while for buyers, Stumpenhaus is able to envision those subtle changes that can transform a house into a home that surpasses her client's needs and dreams. Easy to get along with, Stumpenhaus prioritizes tact and patience during negotiations, assisting and educating her clients to make the right decisions that align with their real estate goals.
Stumpenhaus adores her city. There's lots to do, nice people, and, most importantly, it's a great place to raise a family. She would know, too, because KC is where Stumpenhaus chose to raise her own kids, fourteen-year-old Jake and eight-year-old Kate. Spending time with family is imperative for Stumpenhaus, and she loves traveling and attending her kids' sporting events. Her patience and commitment to always do the right thing commutes between her career and her family life, abiding by the golden rule, "Treat others as you expect to be treated." In her free time, Stumpenhaus volunteers with the KCPD Care Team.
With a dynamic entrepreneurial work ethic and an empathetic, understanding soul, Nickole Stark is a surprising mixture of sugar and spice.
Nickole began her business experience in the tough world of retail. After successfully nurturing, expanding and selling her retail businesses, she teamed up with her long-time friend, Shannon Stumpenhaus, to establish Tradition Home Group.
Tackling a new endeavor is old hat to Nickole. While all new businesses are a risk, Nickole met every challenge head on with one goal in mind...to create the absolute best, customer-focused real estate agency. Almost six years later, Nickole and her team currently receive 84% of their annual sales from referral. Her exceptional service, high ethical standards and dedication to doing the right thing, all of the time, bring clients back, time and time again. Merging the ideas that the client's needs are the priority and communication is essential for success, Nickole prides herself on her ability to listen and problem-solve situations for her clients. Her daily follow-up and strict attention to details are just a few of her strengths that make her a leader in this team and the real estate industry.
