About Betsy Atkinson

I am a Kansas native.  I grew up in Shawnee and went to Bluejacket Grade School, Hocker Grove Middle School and St. Thomas Aquinas High School.  I graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor’s in Theatre and Baker University with a Master’s in Business Management.

After graduating from college I moved to Los Angeles for a year to pursue the life of a professional actress.  After a year I decided it wasn’t the life for me!  When I moved back to Kansas City, I went to work at American Century and began my career.  I had over 10 years experience in the corporate world, including over 5 years in the mortgage industry, before moving into real estate.  I love real estate and love helping people sell their current home and find the next home that is just right for them!

I am also working on my certification in American Sign Language (ASL).  I hope to one day be able to make the home buying and selling experience just as easy and fun for our Deaf community as it is for our hearing community.  I am still a work in progress but I am getting there!

Please let me know if I can answer any of your real estate questions.  I would love to help in any way I can.
