The Community:

Small-town ambiance with big-city excitement / Excellent schools / Low Cost of Living

The Metropolitan Kansas City area offers one of the lowest costs of living and is a city with many cultural attractions with world class museums, miles of trails, sporting events, theaters, great shopping and restaurants; you’ll find the amenities of a larger city, but with Midwestern family-oriented values.  There are many desirable, affluent suburban communities, all of which are experiencing tremendous growth and would be an ideal place in which to work, live and raise a family.
