Meet the Team
For Kurt an active engagement in the farming industry at a young age sparked his interest in property ownership. Family entrepreneurship is also in his heritage. Running a real estate brokerage allows him to combine both—he’s proud that today his wife and oldest son are part of the organization.
Kurt is intentional about promoting a team atmosphere in the office, built for the purpose of customer satisfaction. In turn, Kurt’s agents and customers have described him as being, “fair, dedicated, sincere, knowledgeable, and professional.” Kurt describes himself as “driven”. His business philosophy is simple: “Communication is key,” he says. “There should be no assumptions---ask and ask, again. And above all—listen.”
Kurt’s involvement with The REALTOR Land Institute, and his United Country franchise affiliation, allows him to visit regularly with brokers throughout the nation. Constant exposure to new marketing ideas, leadership strategies and industry practices keeps him current, transferring this knowledge to his team and ultimately the customer.
Under his professional care and guidance, for the past 7 years, Kurt’s team has consistently ranked in the top 5 offices of the United Country Franchise. Currently, Kurt is United Country Real Estate’s National Farm Director and also serves as the President-Elect for the Missouri chapter of the REALTOR Land Institute. When not working, he enjoys spending time with his family and working on the farm with his youngest son, tending to the family cattle operation.
