Before Steve started in the real estate business in March of 1999 he’d already had extensive experience with structures of all types. By the time he was licensed, Steve had raised homes from the top down and built them from the bottom up. He says, “I’ve done everything you can do to a house except burn one down.” Steve’s residential and commercial construction spanned the years from 1973 to 1987 all the Lawrence KS area, most of that time as the owner of his own business.
From 1988 to 1995 Steve, while still owning his construction business, engaged in the radon measurement, mitigation system design and installation, and training business. He’s worked with the Kansas State University Engineering Extension, the Kansas Dept. of Health and Environment, the New Mexico Dept. of Health and Environment, EPA, the U.S. Army and Southwestern Bell Telephone to name a few. The projects ranged from houses and schools, to a 150,000 square foot office building. “I loved the challenges, I loved the work, I loved the people, but in the end, I loved living in Lawrence more. I wanted to be home.” Steve says.
Steve’s next adventure was to become a Kansas State Supreme Court approved mediator and trained negotiator. His favorite project was working with the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers and the Missouri River Basin Association to devise a 25 year long operation strategy for waters of the Missouri River. Steve learned first-hand the art of balancing the interests of several stakeholders at one time with the intent of reaching an acceptable agreement.
