I moved from Southern California to Kansas in 2001. I have been an Ottawa resident and homeowner ever since. I believe strongly in giving back to the community and serve on several boards including United Way, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Ottawa Community Arts Council, Ottawa Public Library, Friends of the Library and Franklin County Heritage Homes.

I believe that a good real estate agent is committed to helping you buy or sell your home with the highest level of expertise in your local market. They should also help you understand each step of the buying or selling process. By following these principles and committing myself to clients, I have built a remarkable track record of delivering results.

Nothing is more gratifying to me than the feeling I get from helping people meet their real estate needs. You can count on me to always do what’s in your best interest. I pride myself on being honest, trustworthy, and knowledgeable in the real estate market. I know how important it is for you to find your dream home or get the best offer for your property. Therefore I will make it my responsibility to help you achieve those goals.

Whether you are an experienced investor or a first-time buyer, I can help you find the property of your dreams. Let me guide you every step of the way by calling or e-mailing me to set up an appointment.

Lester Edgecome

I have been a resident of Douglas County all of my life. My wife, Carolyn and I have farmed and raised our two children in the Worden area. We’ve raised hogs, cattle and crops. We are very familiar with the many facets of farming, the farming community & rural auctions. But it was always auctioneering that held my primary interest even as a boy growing up on the farm. I practiced my auction chant selling the tractor, equipment, fence posts, whatever was around me while driving the tractor in the fields.
