Meet Mike Conners:

Mike has lived in Kansas City for the past 25 years. Prior to becoming a real estate agent with Keller Williams, he spent 15 years as a regional manager with two leading medical companies. It’s during these years that he developed his client-centric mentality and overall sales philosophies. After years of driving winning behaviors from his sales teams, Mike now embraces that same attitude for himself. Mike played college and semi-pro baseball and roots for the Royals and Chiefs. His biggest joy these days, however, is not traveling for work anymore and instead spending time with his family.
