Residential/Commercial Sales Agent
I have been married to my wife, Marjory Hartman, for 27 years. Marjory is an incredible wife, mother and partner. She is employed full-time as a preschool teacher at Grace Community Church in Smithville. Our oldest son, Ben, is 25 and graduated with a Turf Management Associates Degree from Iowa Central Community College in May 2017. He is now employed as Heads Groundskeeper with the Wichita Windsurge in Wichita, KS. Our middle son, Nick, graduated from William Jewell in 2019 and is serving full time youth pastor at Mt. Carmel Church in Cross Plains, TN. Our youngest son, Nathaniel, is a junior in college attending UMKC and studying Electrical Engineering. He is also serving in the US Army Reserve as an E-5.
My priority for my free time is family. I work hard for my family and enjoy spending time with them every chance I get. Some of the activities I enjoy are raising cattle, boating, attending baseball games, and being active members of our church and community. I enjoyed coaching my kids in baseball for 15 years. Whenever possible, we travel together to visit our extended family in Denver, Chicago, Florida, Texas, Arkansas and to my hometown of Hastings, Nebraska.
In my current real estate career, I welcome the daily challenges and am dedicated to helping folks navigate through real estate transactions. I work with residential customers to sell and buy homes in addition to working with real estate investors and commercial customers. I am currently serving a 2-year term as Alderman Ward 1 for the City of Smithville as well as being appointed on the Finance Committee. I was elected in April 2021. Additionally I am President Elect for 2022 for the Smithville Rotary Club. I also serve as a State Director for the Kansas City Regional Association. I believe in giving back to the community and I serve as a Deacon at Grace Community Church in Smithville where my family has been members for 18 years.
