  • Mary began selling real estate in 1972.  Mary’s parents and grand-parents all owned farms and her love of riding horses on all of the farms was the beginning of her passion for selling real estate.  Mike and Mary still own part of her family farm that has been in the family for 172 years. This is their fourth real estate location since opening their business 41 years ago. They are grateful for the community support they have received over the years and look forward to continued years of service at our new location.

So many of the people I have seen come into the community over the years, have contributed so much to make it what it is today.

  • I’m excited to become a part of the Reece Nichols family! I was born and raised in
    Kansas City, Missouri. The catalyst for me to pursue real estate is my mentor Cindy Spicer
    who identified the potential in me at my previous job. Prior to working at Reece Nichols, I
    worked at Sprint Cellular and she highlighted that she like how I treated her and was
    Informative during the transaction. Cindy asked me if I’d consider becoming a real estate agent. I’m
    thankful that situation has occurred because I love being able to help people and I know buying and selling houses is an eventful and memorable moment for many people.

    During my free time I love spending time with my family, working out and reading to help me develop as a person and in real estate. Thank you for welcoming me and I hope to cross paths with many of you at some point!
