Welcome to Kansas City and Fountain Hills!


ASPIRE Group Excited to Welcome John Ljungdahl

John Ljungdahl has joined the ASPIRE Real Estate Group – KC as a Real Estate Consultant in their Northland Kansas City offices. He specializes in residential real estate helping clients reach their goals of buying and selling existing homes, new home construction, and investment properties.

With over 7 years of experience in the Kansas City market assisting numerous families with their real estate needs, as well as years of training and mentoring new agents, John brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. He believes in being a true “consultant” in the process. He knows that there are many agents who will put a sign in your yard or show you a home, but provide very little beyond that. John brings the extra level of service and value to his clients that makes the difference. He prefers to help people, not sell people.

“We are very excited to have John join the ASPIRE Group,” says Derek Espeer, Team Lead.  “I have worked with John the past 7 years in various capacities, and the service he delivers to his clients is exactly what the ASPIRE Group is all about.  BHHS and I are here to support him in his mission to continue to be an all-round real estate pro and consultant.”

Speaking of the move, John Ljungdahl says, “The idea of being the only call my clients need to make to solve all of their real estate needs is huge. I often get asked about different facets of real estate, whether it be residential, commercial or even design and remodeling questions. Now I have one answer: come in and talk to our team. We have a solution for you.”

John has lived in Kansas City for 17 years; he currently lives in the Liberty area with his wife Lisa, son Caleb and daughter Anna. When he is not working, you can find him coaching his son’s youth baseball team, attending school activities, and occasionally getting in a round of golf.

Featured ASPIRE Group Member – Shelton Dray

We are very excited to Feature Shelton Dray as a commercial and residential agent, construction manager, commercial landlord/tenant build out specialist, and more.

Shelton has been instrumental in assisting commercial landlord and tenants since joining our Group. His expertise in the construction industry has paid dividends for our clients who need not only representation with their real estate needs, but also an honest, hardworking contractor for tenant improvement and build out.

Contact him, and you’ll understand the value he brings to your experience!

About Shelton Dray

Growing up in the construction industry, Shelton has acquired a wealth of knowledge about the construction process as well as the buying and selling of commercial and residential properties. He earned his degree from Missouri Western, all while working full time with his family’s construction company. His experience in the construction industry highly impacted his transition in to the real estate market.

His ability to guide and understand his clients’ needs and wants are his top priority. Shelton is an honest and reliable agent and treats his clients like family. While providing sellers with advice on how they can get the highest return on their investment or providing buyers with the tools they need to purchase their dream home, Shelton handles this process with ease leaving his clients feeling trusted and cared about.

Since joining BHHS Stein & Summers Real Estate, he has expanded into commercial real estate sales and leasing. Understanding commercial real estate and the impact a location and structure can have on a business, is also an area Shelton has extensive experience working in.

Like his clients, Shelton is in the process of building his dream home with his wife and two young sons. Finding the perfect piece of property, where he could raise his boys to be outdoorsmen and coach a baseball game in the back field, was a lifelong dream of his. No matter what hat Shelton wears, he always has his clients’ dreams and goals as his driving force.  He looks forward to making those dreams become a reality.




Client Satisfaction vs Transaction #______

I’ve seen a lot of social media posts like “Closed #32 in 2019!” or “#47 Closed!” and other similar things. 

My question:  Do YOU want to be a number? 

Our team puts its goals together much like other agents, however, we treat our real estate business clients as an experience, not a transaction.  We prefer to define our success by Families Assisted, Client Satisfaction, and Referrals.

Contact us to discuss any of your Residential, Commercial, New Construction, or other real estate needs.
