Serving Kansas and Missouri
Wade Fitzmaurice’s first name is a family name. He and his wife, Abigail, passed it on to one of their sons as a middle name. To Wade, family is everything. He realizes that family-owned land is the place where people can connect again even when they live far apart. Though he is a Kansas City native, most of Wade’s relatives are from Mercer County in Northern Missouri. He learned to hunt on his family’s land there. His father and grandfather hunted birds, but Wade prefers the challenge of bow hunting. You could say he fell far from the family tree in that sense. All of Wade’s deer hunting is archery, and he hunts turkey by bow. However, people tend to go back to their roots, and recently, Wade started upland hunting for quail and pheasant. In the summer, his extended family gathers at Wade’s grandmother’s property at the Lake of the Ozarks. If you’re a buyer, you can rely on Wade’s 20 years of hunting experience to guide your search for the perfect recreational property. If you are a seller, you will appreciate that Wade respects the sentimental value of your family’s land. When Wade isn’t working with clients, he is with his wife and sons, often getting together with family in Mercer County for hunting or in the Ozarks for some bass, catfish or crappie fishing. He is a Little League football coach, preparing for the day his sons are old enough to play. Also, Wade serves as a board member for the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) of Greater Kansas City. “People buy or sell property for different personal, financial and recreational reasons. Having land in my family and knowing how important it is to us, I can relate to what my clients are going through and looking for. At the end of their purchase or sale, my hope is that they feel they worked with a great agent who is now a friend,” says Wade. Talk to him about your goals for buying or selling land. It’s a safe bet that he’ll know just what to do to get the best price for your property or where to find that hidden gem that meets your and your family’s needs.
