Missouri Realtors Provide A Bench For All


Gifted Bench Will Face City’s First Inclusive Playground

Warrensburg, MO: August 7, 2017- Cave Hollow Park received a public bench on July, 28, 2017, thanks to the Midwest Missouri Board of Realtors. The bench was presented in recognition of the future Inclusive Playground project. “Playground For All” will be a park that is accessible by all kids of all abilities. It’s a collaborative effort led by Warrensburg Parks and Recreation, Johnson County Board of Services, and WILS (West-Central Independent Living Solutions. The bench is positioned facing the future site of the park, which is slated to open May 2018.


“This is not a park for children with special needs.  It’s a park for everyone to play,” says Jessi Frencken, a Pediatric Physical Therapist, in a post at “Our world is made up of people with varying abilities.  It’s our job to make sure everyone has access to their world.”


Present at the bench placement were members of Warrensburg Parks and Rec, Johnson County Community Services/RISE, and the Midwest Missouri Board of Realtors.


This is the third bench in Warrensburg that MidWest Missouri Board of Realtors has donated to Warrensburg. The board has also placed benches at Lions Lake and Old Drum's Best Friend Dog Park. These gifts were all made possible by a grant from the National Association of Realtors.


“Realtors understand the importance of community, and benches are a simple thing that can be a quiet place to rest, or even a place to meet a new friend,” says Bryan Jacobs, President of Midwest Missouri Board of Realtors. “If anyone has an idea of a public place that could use a bench, let the Midwest Missouri Board of Realtors know. ”

4 Mealtime Resources for a Happy Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving dinner is probably the most anticipated meal of the year — which puts a ton of pressure on anyone with hosting duties.

Don’t panic! The resources below will help you prevent (or smooth over) most cooking blunders.

1.  USDA Leftovers and Food Safety Guide

Don’t let food poisoning destroy your Black Friday shopping plans – use these tips to store leftovers the right way.

2. Turkey-Talk Line

Something fowl happening in your oven? Before asking your mother-in-law for input, you can call the Turkey-Talk line. The free service offered by Butterball fields more than 100,000 inquiries each year in November and December. 

3. Identifying Hidden Sources of Gluten

Gluten can be found in more dishes than you may suspect. Broths, seasonings and many processed foods either contain or are processed in the same facility as gluten. This guide from Udi’s describes the taste and texture of foods with gluten, which can give you a better idea of when to double check what's safe for a GF-guest to eat.

4. Substitutions & Measurements

Whether you ran out of a certain spice, are working with herbs or forgot how to calculate fractions, here are some handy reference tools to save the day!

Would your Thanksgiving be better with a bigger kitchen, extra guest room or more space for parking? When it’s time to start looking for a new home, call your RE/MAX United Agent who is here to help you! 660-422-7813

The Importance of a Buyer's Agent



A real estate transaction is a complex process involving stacks of paperwork and a number of outside service providers and contractors.

An experienced buyer's agent can guide you through the process, answering your questions and serving as your advocate. Your agent will help you find the property that fits your needs, submit offers and counteroffers, suggest a good property inspector and other professionals, and provide all sorts of relevant advice.With a buyer's agent, you'll have someone on your side, looking out for your interests every step of the way.
When seeking out a buyer’s agent, look for factors such as productivity, education and experience.
Look for an agent who understands your lifestyle. Make sure the agent knows the neighborhoods you're interested in, and can answer questions you'll have about the location.

What are the costs involved in hiring a buyer’s agent?

As a buyer, you don’t pay your agent directly. Instead, the agent receives an agreed-upon portion of the listing agent's sales commission (usually about half), which is paid by the seller.If you're thinking this structure works against you by giving your buyer's agent an incentive to let you pay more than you need to, consider this:The increase in a buyer's agent commission on, say, a $5,000 to $10,000 jump in price would be only $125 to $250. Good buyer's agents – those who are productive and engaged in the business full time – aren't going to risk their reputation or your satisfaction – which can generate referrals to your friends and family!

6 Ideas to Help Sell Your Home in Autumn!!

6 Ideas to Help Sell Your Home in Autumn!!

It's easy to boost buyers' impression of your home in new, inexpensive ways with each season. Here are a few things you can do in the fall to make it as inviting as your favorite blanket and a good book!

1. Light it up.
Shorter days and longer shadows mean you need to be particularly careful to maximize natural light with open drapes and blinds, and add more light where needed with floor and tabletop lamps. Replace any burned-out bulbs in outdoor lights. And schedule showings earlier in the day, when the light is stronger. Adequate lighting makes a bigger difference than you might think.

2. Rake in the leaves (and the buyers).
Keep up with your yard work to help hike curb appeal. Clean up the leaves, and trim back any overgrown or dead plants. Cut back trees and hedges that hide or overshadow windows and porches.

3. Stash the toys.
Store all those pool toys, bikes and croquet sets. A less-cluttered yard appears larger. Leave the grill, though. One that's shiny and clean can help buyers see the possibilities of living out their hamburger-and-steak fantasies. If you have nice patio furniture, arranging it around a fire pit – even just a portable or tabletop one – creates a warm, social atmosphere.

4. Mum’s the word.
They’re cheap. They’re cheerful. And they’re hard to kill. A pot or two of orange or gold chrysanthemums can brighten up your porch, deck and steps. Pumpkins also can add a bright, seasonal touch as well, but be careful not to overdo it. You're decorating a home, not a department store.

5. Burn, baby, burn.
If your home has a fireplace, now’s the time to let it shine. Of course, you probably don't want to light a blaze for showings, just in case the fire's unattended between appointments. But you can make sure it’s clean. Tasteful fall décor, like a simple vase of pinecones can add a nice seasonal touch to the mantle or hearth. If your agent will be hosting an open house, a crackling fire with lots of comfy seating can be a great touch.

6. Two words: pumpkin spice.
Don’t worry, there’s no need to actually bake a pie. Before showings, simply burn scented candles with seasonal aromas, like apple, cinnamon and ginger, to add to your home’s coziness.
