Few places across the United States have seen the organic growth and popularity that Kansas City, Missouri has experienced. From their booming culinary and arts scene, to impressive relocation of mid to large corporate and research companies now calling the metropolitan area “home,” Kansas City, and the surrounding area, has also become a highly desirable place to lay down roots.
Thanks to the increased demand for high-end real estate and an overall maturation of the industrial opportunities, Sotheby’s International Realty announced the establishment of its first network affiliate in Kansas, serving the entire Kansas City metropolitan area. Bash Real Estate, founded by proprietary and Kansas City native Andrew Bash, has joined the global real estate network, now serving clients under the Bash & Co. Sotheby’s International Realty brand.
“As we welcome more and more residents to the Kansas City area from across the United States, we have seen an increase in the expectation of service that these clients receive,” Bash said. “They are leaving cities such as Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., in search of a new pace of life, and we are excited to welcome them to our hometown, and show them everything that the Kansas City area has to offer.”
Kansas City has routinely been named one of America’s “Best Places to Live,” and is ranked No. 34 as “Best Place to Buy Real Estate,” by Niche.com, a real estate and metropolitan ranking site.
“I am extremely excited to be heralding the Sotheby’s International Realty brand into our blossoming market,” Bash continued. “Our clients are equally as excited to know the brand sees value in having a presence within the market. The tools we will be able to utilize through our affiliation will not only be monumental to our business at Bash & Co. Sotheby’s International Realty, but also allow us to cater to the next generation of clientele moving into our community.”
Kansas City and the neighboring towns across the Kansas state line that Bash & Co. Sotheby’s International Realty will be serving, have seen a massive increase in private equity firms investing in the local economy and continued growth in the higher education sector. Professionals are moving their families to the area in search of lower cost of living, a growing community and increased quality of life.
