2000+ Happy Clients


"James Hern and the rest of their team went above and beyond for me and I will never forget it. I highly recommend this team of professionals. They treat their customers like family."

"Honest, responsive, customer focused... Just a few of the descriptors I can list with regard to the Hern team. They get results and they are there to serve you as the customer. You will not be disappointed if you list with them."

"Travis Moore is the best realtor! He balances professionalism with a personal touch. Travis advocated for us as sellers and buyers in the process of relocating. The Hern Group has so many resources and professionals working for them, I recommend them to anyone searching for representation in the real estate market."

"The Hern Group was recommended to me by a neighbor that recently sold their house in my subdivision. I came to the Hern Group as a bitter and frustrated seller, after having my house on the market for almost a year, receiving low offers, and a broken contract. Michael and Carrie were very patient with me, answered my questions, and rectified my concerns with the process. I would highly recommend these realtors!"

"I can't say enough about the Hern Group...they were the best realtors I have ever used! Their service was excellent and they know how to take care of their costumers. Best of luck and I will definitely come see you guys again when I'm ready for a new home."

I found the Hern group from a referral from Dave Ramsey. Yes, the Dave Ramsey radio show host. I interviewed them along with two other realtors in the spring of 2016. We were fixing to sell our house then but life happened and we were going to wait. They were very kind in not pushing us to sell right away but kept in quarterly contact with us. We finally made the decision to sell when my job transfer went through and Michael Hern listed our house on a Wednesday and we had a bidding war and had it sold by Friday morning. They were very professional and their administrative assistant, kerri, was as professional and full of answers for us when Michael was not available. Thank you so much for a smooth transition and a fast sell on our house in Grandview, MO.

"It was a pleasure to work with Michael Hern. He not only knows the traditional markets (owner occupied), but he also knows the investment market very well. He helped me and my partners sell our investment properties that we couldn't sell. His outside of the box thinking and market knowledge was critical to the sale of our properties. I would highly recommend the Hern Group for any real estate endeavor that you may have."

"I was thoroughly impressed with the experience I had selling my home. It was a very quick process, the Hern Group handled everything for me and kept me in the loop while doing so. I HIGHLY recommend this group as I will definately use them again in the future. They are awesome experts in the business, know it inside and out, and you can fully rely on them to do the job well. They don't take any short cuts, and they will do whatever necessary to get the job done. I want to personally thank them for making the selling process as painless as possible, I am so glad I didn't go with anyone else. I appreciate all the time and dedication on your part to get the house sold."
