Summer is nearly here and we are here for it!

Along with no school and summer vacation, comes a variety of options for outings and activities galore!  We will be highlighting the communities in our area, and a bunch of the fun they have planned for the summer months ahead!

Since our headquarters are located in Lee’s Summit, and one of these events is literally happening as we write- right outside our windows - we thought we would start right here in Lee’s Summit!

No matter where you live, there will be opportunities for you to embrace the culture that is offered within your community. It is all about bringing people together, and the Kansas City area does a great job of that!

Want to live closer to all the fun and excitement in your area?  The Ask Cathy Team can help you pinpoint the possibilities of a new home and how to make that happen for you! Schedule a consultation with one of our amazing team members, and be in your new home just in time for the next big event! 

Have a home to sell but you aren't sure how much it is currently worth?  We have that information for you here! 

Here is a list of just some of the fun coming up in Lee’s Summit!  Which ones will you attend?
