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.
