What Our Clients Say

Rachel Thompson ~ Sustained Homes Building & Design, LLC ... Since deciding to build our spec home in Shoal Creek, we have found Tom and Susan to be the most professional, most helpful, most enthusiastic sales agents we have ever worked with. From the first point of contact, Susan has been thinking of the best way to market our home. Not only is she receptive to our ideas, but she proactively generates new ideas to get our home out in front of the most number of people. Likewise, Tom has been a great resource for us as we have needed to find additional subcontractors in an area we are not familiar with. Both Tom and Susan have been our champions since day one, and they have most certainly gained fans in us. We are so excited to work with them both today and with future projects.


Julie Ripperger ~ Senior Account Executive ... It has been my pleasure to work with Tom Johnson and Susan Renschler on an extensive marketing plan to help them with their properties. They have always been very kind, informative and knowledgeable with their business. It is a compliment to know that they also look to me for my expertise in my field since I am with Kansas City SPACES Magazine. With the combination of all of us together along with Jared Webb with The Kansas City Star Media Company, we make a very strong team.

Tom and Susan work superbly together with quick responses to problems, suggestions and changes moving forward. I never have a fear of them not getting back to me with a correct answer. They have always been open-minded on our suggestions. I highly recommend Tom and Susan for the top realtors in Kansas City.


Dave and Stacy Jackson ... Tom and Susan were an integral part of our building process. This was the first new house build for my family. Tom and Susan were extremely knowledgeable. They were responsive and were able to answer our questions thoroughly and in a timely manner. They were professional and were great advocates throughout the process.

They were also personal. I have run into them in non-work settings and they are friendly and personable. It was clear they took pride in their work and treated us as more than customers. Building a home is obviously a huge investment and I was impressed with their dedication and expertise.


Dana ~ KCMO ... I have thought a lot about this review and how to do Tom justice. There are a lot of Realtors out there but the level of experience sets them apart. If you want to work with someone who knows this business inside out, is professional, does what he says he is going to do and has a heart of gold, Tom's your guy. He has over 30 years experience which means most any issue you have come up, he has dealt with before. Whether you are building a home from the ground up, buying resale or listing your current home, his expertise and attention to detail, ability to negotiate and stay on top of the paperwork are just a few things that have made him successful. I referred an old school friend to Tom last year to list her parents home after they passed. Even though the home was an older, it had great sentimental value. Her father built the home from the ground up and raised her and her siblings there. She interviewed a few agents and said that Tom set himself apart right away with his professionalism, asking questions about the history of the home and taking the time to explain the listing process. Tom got the listing and had it under contract and closed in a very short period of time. This was an emotional time for her and her family and he made it so much easier. She was very grateful. When my daughter wanted to buy her first home, Tom was our guy. He stepped up as her buyer agent and handled the purchase from start to finish. She bought a home that was under construction. As my daughter's POA, I was the one working on this deal with Tom because she was traveling and getting married during the contract period. His work negotiating the offer, working with the listing agent, finding a new lender (the one we chose couldn't close us at the last minute due to their inability to escrow for sod) was nothing short of stellar. He stayed on top of the construction process and the paperwork There were many points during this process that this deal could have fallen apart but Tom's knowledge and professional manner kept the it going strong. My daughter closed on her new home last week and just moved in. She is happy and grateful that Tom took her on and worked for her. She had a "wish" list of things she wanted in her new home and he made it all happen. Another happy client. Thanks Tom!


The Taylors ~ Shoal Creek Valley Kansas City MO ... When we put two homes on the market it couldn't have been at a worse possible time. The housing market was down for all sectors and the homes fit into both the high and low price categories. Tom was diligent and helped us to not only sell the properties but to also get a very reasonable price for the times.

We would recommend Tom to anyone in the market to sell or purchase a home. He is very personable, easy to get in touch with, and listens to his client's wishes and concerns. Should the need arise; we will be working with him again.


Don Alexander, Allison & Alexander Inc. Commercial Design Build ~ Riverside, MO ... I have known Tom Johnson over forty years, he works hard, he cares about people and he has good character.


Joseph Christensen Cardinal Crest Homes ~ Shoal Creek Valley Kansas City MO ... We have worked with Tom for many transactions and every time he has brought a level of integrity, knowledge, and professionalism that is hard to find. It is rare to find an agent who has such a natural instinct for real estate like Tom does.


Choppermil ~ Shoal Creek Valley ... Tom's professionalism and integrity are beyond compare. He is sincere in his desire to achieve the best possible outcome for his client. His knowledge of and care for the local community are remarkable. It's a privilege to work with Tom. Thanks a million!


Randy and Mary Ann ~ THE NATIONAL Parkville, MO ... Several years ago; knowing little about the planned area now known as The National, we called to inquire about the development. Tom Johnson took our call and a great relationship began. At Tom's invitation we met him that very week, learned about the vision and plans for The National and toured the grounds with him. Through the entire process-site development, pricing a lot, house plans and building, Tom was an advocate and resource far more than just a Realtor. We strongly recommend him for his experience and, knowledge, his generous spirit, along with his honesty and integrity.


FASTLANE CAR WASH Wayne & Jason ~ Zona Rosa, Kansas City MO ... When I decided to build my commercial building I needed someone who work with us throughout the entire site selection and design build process. Tom Johnson proved to be that individual. It was a GREAT experience and we would certainly work with him again!


Doug and Jane ~ Riss Lake Parkville MO ... Through the past 20 years, we have built four homes and have always used an agent that demonstrated fair and professional services, that agent was Tom Johnson. We strongly give our recommend to Tom and would certainly use his services again.


Mike and Jennifer Nolan ... Dear Susan, How can we ever thank you for making our move and home purchase smooth and stress free? Two phrases you don't typically hear when referring to moving. From the prompt returned phone calls and emails to your advice and helpful tips, you were always available for my crazy, endless questions, even on your days off. You are the true definition of integrity and professionalism! You're one of a kind and we're so thankful we found you. Sincerely, Mike and Jennifer Nolan


Jim and Brandi Hastings ... Two years ago we met Susan while touring homes in the Northland. We were very new to house shopping, and needed a lot of direction. Susan was there every step of the way! She was able to quickly assess what kind of house we were looking for, and then off the top of her head, directed us to a model that immediately caught our attention. She was able to connect us with the builders of that model, and even helped find the perfect lot in the neighborhood of our dreams! She has been a fantastic help for us as we have worked with our builders in designing our home. We had many questions and she was always happy to answer them. We look forward to moving into our new home at the end of February, and are grateful for Susan's guidance and expertise.
