Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Hot Rods, and Humdingers – In Shidler!

O

k, so I rolled into town just a little past 11:00 a.m. – and Shidler was buzzing. It was “that” Saturday. You know, the Shidler Annual Car Show Saturday – that only happens in Osage County once a year – but when it happens, you don’t want to miss it! Barn doors roll open, garage doors get raised – elbow grease and wax rags have been put to good use, and you could comb your hair in the chrome as these beauties make their way to northwestern Osage County for this annual event.

It’s a time when car buffs and car clubs bring their best and their “babies” out for debut and exhibition. It’s a who’s who of auto aficionados! From revved-up motors to restored Ramblers – pickups to Pontiacs – convertibles to hatchbacks – folks come to see it all, admire the details, discuss the process, and maybe even dicker a sale or two while they’re there! This year it was beautiful weather and folks were out visiting and enjoying hot dogs and hamburgers, hot rods, and humdingers like these:

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Chris Cox of Hominy and the owner of the General Lee!! He even told me John Schneider has done a little hot-rodding in this very car! From Mustangs to Mercuries…And just about everything in between… with over 100 entries, you could step back in time and get the feel behind the wheel of timeless classics. Hats off to the Shidler Chamber of Commerce for a job well-done!!! I pulled into town and had to park two blocks away and walk to the park where this shindig was going down. When this gal pulls up and folks are parked for blocks away from an event – it’s a good thing, y’all!

Not Using Agent Insight? That’s Crazy!

“I wouldn’t keep posting on Agent Insight if it didn’t pay off,” said Felicia Harris, an agent with over 17 years of experience at RE/MAX Heritage in Blue Springs, MO. “I tell other agents that they are crazy not to use it, too.”

Felicia has been uploading photos and written insights to Agent Insight since 2016 and has completed 573 submissions to date. Many potential clients have found her through her Agent Insight submissions. In a recent Google search of each of her 30-plus subdivision pages, 10 of them came up as the first result on the search and another three were second. Every one of the subdivisions appeared on the front page of the search results!  Felicia doesn’t pay for leads from Zillow or other real estate databases, so she relies on Agent Insight, along with other social media platforms, to bring in potential clients.

Felicia’s goal is to post twice a week, submitting both a photo and a written submission on each of the subdivision pages where she has listings. Additionally, she is creative about how she covers other amenities and events in her community. “While I’m out and about, I look for things that interest me,” she said. “I watch for subjects while I’m  showing listings or running errands or enjoying an activity with my family. I especially want to cover the excellent schools in Grain Valley where I live.  I’m a huge football fan of the schools’ teams and, of course, of the Kansas City Chiefs.”

The day after the Chiefs won the AFC Championship on Jan. 29, 2023, Felicia posted five new submissions about the team and the game. One of those, along with a sampling of her other work, is shown here. Note that she always packs good information into her captions.

Part of our highly rated public schools, this is one of the best schools around. Love the Big Eagle!
Shriners Circus was the place to be! All the kids were in awe! Shriners have 22 non-profit hospitals.
KC Chiefs pride throughout Union Station! Super Bowl, here we come!
Peach trees are in bloom – I love this time of year in Missouri.

“I have been selling real estate with RE/MAX for over 17 years. We are the best of the best,” Felicia said. She plans to continue using Agent Insight as an important part of her marketing plan. “Agent Insight gets the leads for me,” she said. “When someone does a Google search, I want my name to pop up.”

The Hangout 10th Annual Polar Bear Dip

T

he Hangout 10th Annual Polar Bear Dip was a blast! An awesome way to bring in the new year! On January 1st of each year, The Hangout hosts a free Polar Bear Dip presented by the Kiwanis Club out in front of their restaurant on the beach. There were t-shirts to buy, a DJ, beach bonfires, games and people dressing up crazy! The event was a few hours long and at noon everyone who wanted to participate could run into the gulf and takethe plunge. Following the dip, my family and I sat around one of the bonfires and ate/drank the free hot chocolate and chili. So much fun for all ages!
