Who Are We?

1970’s

Kansas Farm Family

Hard Work and Adversity

The Sauer Family has roots back to Western Kansas. “Back in the Day” the Family actively worked the land. As times changed, so did the Family. That ultimately led to us getting the “Heck out of Dodge”, literally we lived in Dodge City. Through these times we learned the value of Hard Work and Adversity.

Grass Roots

Earning Our Worth

“Landlord” was the term used when referring to prior Generations in the Family that owned rental property. Not Investor, Not Guru. Their beginnings were small, modest, and everything was Sweat Equity. As kids, the Sauer Brothers began to learn the business by mowing lawns and helping clean up and paint on tenant turnovers.

Industry Education

Industry and Trade Education

With time each individual in the Sauer Family gained industry education and experience that ultimately contributed to the Family’s efforts. Accreditations and Licensing as Realtors, Contractors, Home Inspectors, and Appraisers gave the family a well-rounded knowledge of several of the trades that go into the Industry.

The Collapse

Humility

The real estate and financial market collapse beginning in 2009 was widespread, including Us, yielding tests of character and resilience. Humbled the Sauer Family persevered in an industry left in tatters with new found clarity and unshakable values to lead them into the “next Chapter”.

Early 2010’s

New Beginnings

New Beginnings, New Paths

With an industry left in tatters, the Sauers dusted themselves off and got back up. The Collapse left a real estate market ripe for opportunity. The first wave, Foreign Investors swept in with favorable currency exchanges and faith in the American economy and began buying as much real estate as they could.
