About Allison

My extensive years of experience in the trust administration industry have lead me to believe people are being underserved when it comes to dealing with inherited property of a loved one.  Family members are often torn as to how to deal with the family home, farm, etc.  Maybe the home is no longer in the "good part" of town or none of the children wish to work and maintain the family farm.  The home may be outdated or need significant repairs.  I work as a true client advocate, listening and acting in their best interests. I often work alongside the estate planning attorney or family advisor to answer client questions regarding the disposition of real estate.

I help answer questions such as ...

  • How can I maximize the value upon the sale of my inherited real estate?
  • How can I preserve the family home so mom/dad can go to a nursing home and qualify for Medicaid?
  • What should I do about a reverse mortgage or other encumbrances on the home?
  • What are some creative ways to sell the home if it's in a rural or undesirable area?

With offices in both Missouri and Kansas I have many connections to get you to your goals.  I can be one of your biggest resources and your advocate.  I look forward to working with you.
