Farmhouse transformed into offices
Inclement weather Saturday evening may have cut short the grand opening for the new Re/Max All American office, but it didn't dull the excitement company officials have for their new site north of Basehor.
"It's worked out perfect for us," owner and operator Randy Cunningham said.
For five years, Re/Max All American was at the Parkway Place Business Park on Parallel Road. However, earlier this year the business moved to an old farmhouse on Kansas Highway 7, just north of Fairmount Road. The company spent about $150,000 renovating the home, which was built in the late 1800s.
"We did an extensive remodeling," Cunningham said. "It doesn't even look like a house anymore."
The new office is on approximately five acres of land at 22517 139th St. and allows for the real estate office to expand. The business hosted a grand opening Saturday night. Tethered balloon rides were planned for later in the evening, but were cut short because of stormy weather.
