A lot of sellers don’t listen to their real estate agents, so we’ll tell you what your agent wants to say, but can’t say to you and this is it – your agent can’t get you the price you want unless your home is in pristine move-in condition.
That means no sticking drawers in the kitchen. No leaning fences. No rust-stained plumbing fixtures. We could go on, but maybe we need to make it clear. If you have even one of following “turn-offs,” your home won’t sell.

Buyers can get instantly turned off. Here are their five biggest turn-offs:
1. Overpricing for the market
4. Deferred maintenance
5. Dark, dated décor
For the sixth straight year, the PBR is bringing the pain, as the toughest cowboys and baddest bulls on the planet rock Sprint Center on Feb. 22 & 23. The Top 35 bull riders in the world risk it all for two unforgettable nights. Don’t even think about calling it a rodeo…this is BULL RIDING! This is the PBR!
Kansas City is full of surprises. While the name conjures images of cows and cornfields, KC was once known for its sinful ways, and has been home to a number of colorful characters past and present.
1. It’s Not Actually in Kansas – Except When It Is
2. The Heart Of the Heartland
3. KC Strip Steaks Put New York’s To Shame
4. Where Jazz Grew Up
5. Barbecue Battle!! KC Takes On the South
Now that everybody’s eating farm-to-table, it’s time to think about what you drink. Artisanal alcohol has landed in KC, and small batch operations are making a big splash. Here are some Yelpers’ favorites.
Cinder Block Brewery
4_half star rating
110 E 18th Ave, North Kansas City, MO
“Since moving to Kansas City I haven’t been able to find a personal relationship with a brewery and I think Cinder Block is going to be exactly what has been missing in my life.”
James D., Kansas City, MO
Amigoni Urban Winery
4 star rating
1600 Genessee St, Kansas City, MO
“The tasting was super affordable, like $5. The Urban Drover wine? Complex, smoky, fruit forward, bold and utterly satisfying. We bought two bottles.”
Faith B., Kansas City, MO
Dark Horse Distillery
4_half star rating
11740 W 86th Ter, Lenexa, KS
“We were able to sample their spirits in the bar area, which was really lovely for events. I really enjoyed the bourbon but everything they offer represents small-batch, craft spirits at their best.”
Alexis R., Liberty, MO
Rock & Run Brewery Pub
3_half star rating
110 E Kansas St, Liberty, MO
“I went for the stout they currently had on hand. I have to say it was nothing short of amazing! Fantastic job guys.”
Brian E., Lenexa, KS
Dodge City Distillery
3_half star rating
11935 S Black Bob Rd, Olathe, KS
“I’ve been there twice now and have yet to be disappointed. Get there for happy hour, the pours are generous and you just cant beat $1 drinks.”

Kansas City Restaurant Week
January 17-26, 2014 | #KCRW2014
An exhibition of Kansas City’s finest culinary talents, Kansas City Restaurant Week will offer a variety of mouth-watering foods from top chefs across the metro area, demonstrating why the KC dining scene is among the nation’s best–and up until now, one of the best-kept foodie secrets (the Zagat Survey has called Kansas City the No. 1 dining bargain of all the major cities it reviews).
Restaurant Week features an array of restaurant participants so diners can visit old favorites and also try the many new restaurants that have opened recently in the Kansas City metro area. KC Restaurant Week diners order from special prix-fixe menus at participating restaurants. Multi-course lunches are $15 and dinners are $33.
*Menus will be posted as they are received from restaurants throughout December and early January. We will do our best to ensure menus are posted in a timely manner.*
