My name is Ben Shrauner,
Owner of Sell Your KC House.com
You might be thinking that I have been in real estate & buying houses my whole life….
Before I got into real estate, I spent my days working as a veterinarian. I grew up in a small town in southwest Kansas, the son of farmers & ranchers. Working with the animals, being outdoors, and working with my hands were things I really enjoyed. That ultimately led to me earning my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, and then going on to become a Diplomat of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons specializing in surgery on horses.
Everyone loves a good “Before & After”
So, why the switch to Real Estate?
When explaining the role of an Equine Surgeon to my friends and family, I always told them “It’s a little bit of carpentry, and a little bit of gardening.” It is a combination of working with my hands, being presented with a challenge, making a plan, and nurturing it through to life.
I had always looked at the real estate industry from the outside-in wondering “Where do I even start?” It took time, but once I was able to get my foot in the door, it’s been full steam ahead and I wouldn’t look back for anything! Meeting people, connecting with the community, and helping homeowners has been incredibly fulfilling.
Although they may seem wildly different, I have found a lot of similarities between my previous career as a veterinarian and my role now as a home buyer. Just as if you were presenting “Dr. Shrauner” with a wounded animal, the burdens you are facing with your house become my challenge to overcome with you. We work together to find a solution, make a plan, and bring it to life. And it’s a bonus that I still get to work with my hands doing what I love!
I think you will find I’m a pretty normal guy, except I might smile too much. It may sound cheesy, but I want home sellers to think back and say “You know, that Ben guy did a good job helping us out…..He sure did smile a lot, but he did a good job.”
