RON HENDERSON

EXPERT REALTOR® | 816-651-9001 | Email

Areas of Expertise
Licensed Realtor in both Kansas and Missouri, although I typically specialize in the Kansas City North communities of Liberty, Parkville, Kearney, Smithville, Platte City, Gladstone, and North Kansas City.

One of Kansas City's TOP 100 agents (out of over 8,500 licensed agents). Top Kansas City Northland Agent with over $22 million (112 homes) sold in the last 12 months.

I have extensive knowledge and experience with new home construction and have a CSP (certified new homes sales professional) designation from the National Association of Home Builders. I am very familiar with many local builders and the various new home communities in this area.

Lastly, I work with different lenders to offer my clients an array of creative financing solutions for their new home purchase. From first time home buyers to experienced upper end home buyers and sellers.

What Makes Me Different for Sellers?
In today's world, simply planting a sign in the yard, posting a home on the MLS and waiting for the phone to ring just doesn't cut it. Let's be honest, if that did work, you wouldn't need me because you could do that yourself.

I believe in using technology to sell your home. Websites, Blogs, Social Marketing, Virtual Tours, Banner Ads, Pay-Per-Click Advertising, etc. If more than 95% of the home buyers are searching the Internet to find their next home, wouldn't it make sense to choose a Realtor that understands and invests in the latest technologies to guarantee your home receives maximum exposure online? In today's technologically advanced world, marketing and selling your home is not what it used to be. My previous experience was in the field of Advertising and Marketing. Prior to getting my real estate license 12 years ago, I worked for an online marketing and website development firm here in Kansas City. It was my job to call on large Fortune 500 companies and work with their advertising departments to create online programs to market their products and services to the general public. I now utilize that knowledge to market YOUR home to the public and to other Realtors to insure the sale of your home will be a success.

SCOTT PARMAN

BUYER SPECIALIST | 816-585-3273 | Email

Ron Henderson & Associates is proud to have Scott Parman as their Buyer Specialist. Scott's roots trace back to the Northland, as his parents were teachers at Oak Park and Park Hill when they met. Customer service was learned at a young age; the Parman family operated a general store throughout Scott's youth in a farm town in Northwest Missouri. After high school, Scott attended the US Air Force Academy and served five and a half years as an Air Force officer with over 1,500 flying hours, including Operation Enduring Freedom over Afghanistan.

Scott went into real estate after spending ten years as a sales professional in the medical device industry in the fields of cardiac surgery and breast cancer diagnosis. Scott now brings his attention to detail, professionalism, and a mid-western work ethic to the real estate industry. Coupled with a deep passion for enabling his customers' success, these skills help Scott give his buyers first class service throughout the entire home buying process.

Scott has been married 15 years to his wonderful wife Adrianna. They have two children, Mia - 8 and Quinn - 7. When not helping clients discover their dream homes, you might find Scott cycling, playing basketball, racing motocross, or playing bass in local venues for his brother's country band.


What Makes Me Different for Buyers?
I've been told by many of my clients that they appreciate the way I give them the very best and latest information possible so they can make an educated decision throughout the entire buying process. They consider me their "trusted advisor". Simply saying I have experience would be a slight understatement. With selling hundreds of homes in this area, working with me to help you buy a home will allow you a very smooth transaction and because I know Kansas City very well, you can rest assured that I will help you find the very best home at a great price.

ROBERT E. GIRARD

LISTING SPECIALIST | 913-205-5398 | Email

Robert joined our real estate team in May 2017 as our Listing Specialist. He brings with him over 36 years of client sales, service, and satisfaction expertise. Robert's experience in giving "heroic customer service" started in his early years working through high school at the prestigious Kirkbrae Country Club on the East coast where he grew up. His experience was further nurtured by extensive training at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Combine this with over 30 years in the fine jewelry industry, the last 18 years working with family-owned Tivol Jewelers here in Kansas City, and you can see why we're excited to have Robert join our team!

A Parkville resident for over ten years, Robert stays busy with his twin 13 year old boys, Evan and Cooper, and his wife of 17 years, Courtney Elizabeth. If it's not golf lessons, Tae Kwon Do or wrestling matches, it's "into the woods" with the Boy Scouts. Robert is also an experienced long distance motorcyclist with many miles stretching across North America over many years. Needless to say, the Girards stay really busy!

What Makes Me Different for Sellers?

No matter what, I believe you do for your client exactly what you said or promised you would do. Period. It's that simple. I work hard for each and every seller regardless of the price, size, or location of their home. Isn't that what you expect from your real estate team? Often in today's culture Listing Specialists feel their job is done when the sign goes on the lawn. A good agent knows that's when their job starts! Through weekly contact with sellers, review of our local marketplace, and making adjustments in accordance to my seller's wishes, we have a strong chance of selling your home in a timely manner.
