About Tom

Tom Scanlon has long been an integral member of the Kansas City Real Estate community.  In 1973, after several  years as the Vice President of Marketing and Sales for an international airline based in San Francisco, Tom decided to relocate his growing family back home to Kansas  City where he was born and raised.He was a graduate of Rockhurst High School and then St. Louis University where he earned degrees in history and philosophy. So he eagerly accepted a position with the JC Nichols Company, the master developer of Kansas City area's finest residential communities.  With their guidance and support Tom quickly became one of the company’s and city's top agents for 14 years and earned the honor of Realtor of Year. As well, he was the desigated broker for the firm's Brookside office.

He then  served as the Director of New Homes – Marketing and Sales for Coldwell Banker, where he spearheaded the community idea conception, HUD Accreditation, development,and active marketing of 11 new single family and condo subdivisions in Missouri and Kansas. . After this successful career in marketing new family subdivisions, Tom decided to concentrate on the sale of condos and lofts, at the time an abandoned market,  as they "came of age" in demand.  He was known as "The Condo King"  after a couple of years of helping condo buyers and sellers. He was an integral part of concept plannng and conversions. During his period he was awarded membership in the Builder's Institute by the National Association of Home Builders.
