Crown Realty Welcomes Bud Dunn

Bud was born and raised in South Texas, working his way through school before graduating with a degree in Business Administration from Texas A&M University – Kingsville in 1984.  He began working in the insurance industry after graduation, working for a couple of Fortune 50 companies that transferred him and his family around Texas before landing in the Kansas City area in 2003.  His insurance claims and operations responsibilities included leadership and oversight of major operations throughout the United States, Latin America, Asia and Europe.  While always a small town boy at heart, Bud’s international work assignments have allowed him to enhance his communication skills and have a deep appreciation for varying cultures and perspectives, which he looks forward to applying in his real estate career.  Bud’s experience in dealing with people as well as his in-depth experience in interpreting, negotiating and explaining contracts will be an asset in helping individuals, families and commercial clients navigate through the challenges of all aspects of real estate.

Bud and his wife Ellen moved to rural Miami county in 2003, and have three children, two of which graduated from Louisburg High School.  They now live in Parkville, Missouri, and have been married for 30 years.  Bud and Ellen are very proud of their children Jacqueline, Caitlin and Josh, their wonderful spouses, and their 4 (soon to be 5) precious grandchildren.  In his spare time, Bud enjoys working out, bird hunting, and is also a competitive shotgunner.

Norm Evans Joins Spring Hill Crown Realty!

Norman Evans was born in 1964 and raised on a Wisconsin farm before relocating to Olathe Kansas – where he attended Olathe high school and Olathe vocational school specializing in graphic arts and printing.  At age seventeen, Norm started a quick printing company with a partner.  He learned the business from the ground up. Over 30 successful years later, Norm decided to begin looking for a career that would allow him to apply his considerable personal experience toward professional growth. He believes he has found this career in real estate.  It allows him to utilize his business management and customer service skills to give buyers the advantage they need to fulfill their dreams of home ownership.

Outside of his professional life, Norman has enjoyed the family life as well, and has been happily married for 32 years, is a proud father, and enjoys spending as much time with his wife and daughter as possible on their farm in Miami county.  He is an avid outdoorsman, enjoys doing projects with his son-in-law, and is a lifelong music lover.  We believe that his passion for family and his business knowledge puts him in a great position to provide home seekers with the professionalism of a businessman and personal touch of a father.  If Norm can help your family, please contact him!
