Friday Feature: Lisa Rater

Today’s Friday Feature is all about Lisa Rater from our Lenexa Office.

Q: Share one fun fact others might not know about you? 

L: I witnessed a tornado when I was younger and I have had a fascination with weather every since. I would like to storm chase to witness tornadic activity and other storms.

Q: What do you like best about being a REALTOR? 

L: This career allows you to basically set your own destiny, that’s what attracted me. For 30 years I was a licensed assistant for one of the top agents in Kansas City. I learned from the best! Then the day came where I decided to set my own destiny.

I love when I help my clients achieve their dreams, whether it’s buying or selling. Real estate is going to be the most expensive investment these people make in their life. So, when I can find a buyer’s dream home, that’s what excites me. When I can get a fantastic offer on the sale of a seller’s home, I’m in heaven. I love when I can achieve the goals on both sides of the table.

It’s fast moving, its faced paced, it’s ever changing. You’re never doing the same thing twice. Each house is different, each buyer is different. There are so many variables: the economy is one, home prices is one, interest rates is one. I love the challenges of listings and the creativity that’s a part of marketing homes.

You make of it what you want!

Q: What do you like best about working for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Kansas City Realty?

L: The main reason for choosing Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices was Jim and Jeff Manning.

The Manning’s have been highly respected in the real estate community for years and pose the enthusiasm, integrity and professionalism I was seeking.

Ultimately, the company I selected had more to do with the people within that particular office than it did with the name on the outside of the door or even the commission structure.

Not to say the name “Warren Buffett” isn’t a proven name for success. When has the man ever gone wrong, Right? I do see the Cabernet and Cream sign being a presence in the real estate force. The brand is dedicated to the enhancement of skills and professionalism of all real estate professionals – newcomers and industry veterans alike.

Q: Anything else you’d like to share with the world?

L: We have a wonderful support staff at BHHS Kansas City Realty who are very helpful and supportive.

Friday Feature: Mikki Plaskett

Each Friday we take a little time to feature one of our talented agents and share a few things you might not know about them. Mikki Plaskett

Today we’re talking with Mikki Plaskett from our Blue Springs Office.

Q: Share one fun fact others might not know about you? 

M: I used to do a lot of public speaking in my “other” career until I was at a convention in front of at least 1,200 people and fainted at the podium. It was just stage fright as I had never spoke in front of a group that large…..thus ended my speaking career.


Q: What do you like best about being a REALTOR? 

M: I have worked with the public a good part of my life in marketing, sales and advertising, so becoming a realtor felt natural for me.  I love working with people and the satisfaction I receive from either helping them find the home that is just perfect for them or selling their home to help them move on.


Q: What do you like best about working for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Kansas City Realty?

M: The tools we have at our finger tips are phenomenal and make our marketing for clients so much easier and professional, not to mention the prestige behind the Berkshire Hathaway name.


Q: Anything else you’d like to share with the world?

M: I love how BHHS is growing nationally and I always enlighten prospective clients of this fact.  I’ve had many people tell me that they have seen our new commercial and they love it!
