Valentine’s Dinner Theater
ACT Ottawa Community Theater Presents: Almost Maine
Gary Hosack, owner of Crown Realty, and Kathy Minden, owner of Reece and Nichols Miami County, recently announced the merger of their two companies. Gary stated, “Kathy and I have always had a great working relationship and this merger will help to grow Crown Realty and will benefit not only our current customers and clients but also our future ones.” Hosack and Minden have both been active in the Paola community for over 40 years, and have a combined 71+ years of real estate experience!
Minden will be Crown’s new Director of Business Development. She is excited for her new role and explained that her “focus will be on listing and selling properties and building the Crown Realty name.” Gary and Kathy agree that the transition period will be smooth and speedy for all involved.
“The merger of the two companies will put all the top agents in the area under one name. I can only see it as a positive for all involved,” Kathy said.
Kathy was the President of Kansas City Regional Association of REALTORS® in 2014 and will stay involved on the Local, State, and National levels. Kathy’s involvement will put Crown Realty agents on the forefront of legislation that affects real estate and protecting the rights of home ownership.

Point2 just posted a wonderful article on “Extraordinary Homes: Earth Houses” with pictures from some truly extraordinary ones around the world. They list many of their benefits in the article (which you can read here), including energy efficiency, fire protection, and comfortable humidity levels.
The U.S. Department of Energy likes them for their well-insulated natures, but mentions on their page on earth homes that they can be up to 20% more expensive to build.
Fortunately for you, we have a great option sitting on 3 acres available right now in Spring Hill, KS. Many refer to it as the “hobbit house,” but it’s certainly much bigger than that. It has almost 2000 sqft, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and very spacious rooms! See for yourself:
