Brookside Residents for over 32 Years


t’s hard to think that we’ve been living in Kansas City’s beautiful Brookside area for over 30 years. We bought our first house in 1987 in Armour Hills. We paid $67K for it and our interest rate was 10%. (and we didn’t even bat an eyelash). We were elated to have our first home is such a wonderful neighborhood. We lived there for nine years and fixed up every inch of it. We added a two-car garage after getting a variance from the city.

We were in need of a second full bath for our three growing boys and decided it was time for a move just a few blocks away to Romanelli West. We stayed there for 15 years and absolutely loved living by Arno Park where the boys shot hoops with their neighborhood friends and school mates. We still reside in Brookside. We’ve been fixing up what we believe will be our last house that will hold our kids, grandkids and grand pups for years to come. Our family has grown and evolved, but the place we will always call home is Brookside! There’s no place like it and…we know that first hand!

Our son, Thomas, and his wife bought their “first” home a couple years back around the corner from our family’s first home in Armour Hills!
