Meet The Owner Of Wardell & Homes Real Estate, LLC.

Andrea Wardell

Licensed in KS, MO & CO


Over the last twelve years of my career, I’ve had the opportunity to explore multiple avenues in the Real Estate Industry. My career began in 2008, right during the market crash. I have always had the philosophy to “find a way or make one,” so being determined to beat the odds was my passion and goal.  My determination and passion for the real estate industry allowed me to push forward during these adverse economic times. During the first year, I had four jobs to keep my cash flow while obtaining my licenses for Kansas and Missouri. In the years 2015, 2016 and 2017 I was awarded Missouri Top Agent and in 2018 I personally closed on $38 million dollars in transactions. This included 207 closings in the last six months of the year. In July of 2018, I knew it was time to start my own path and launched Wardell & Holmes Real Estate located in the historic Longfellow neighborhood in Kansas City, MO.  My vision of opening my own company has not only surpassed my initial goals but surpassed business goals. The company staff has grown 800% since 2018 inception.


My team's determination and hard work over the last two years have created closed sales of almost 70 million dollars to date. We connect with investors in Missouri, Kansas & Colorado.  My personal track record of sales on average is 150 plus homes a year.I have found a niche and love in my real estate community with investors and historic properties. I work closely with historic investment specialists to ensure we are upholding the history in Kansas City and not erasing it.To better serve the city I have stayed involved with multiple organizations and charities and have encouraged my team to do the same. As a team at Wardell & Holmes, we have supported Ronald McDonald, KC Pet Project, Wayside Waifs, Run to Stop It, Harvesters, Susan G Komen Foundation, Little Black Dress Event, Special Olympics, and more. I have learned as a business owner; it is best to listen to your customers and provide a high degree of integrity with everyone involved. The more my team and I can help clients, vendors, and citizens of Kansas City and beyond, the greater the impact we can create. As a local company, our passion is to support local businesses and create quality opportunities for investors. Awards that I've been honored to have received are 5 Star Real Estate Professional, Best of Zillow Top Agent, Real Producers Award, and Top 200 Kansas City agents for 2 years in a row.  I believe that we have devised a strong team at Wardell & Holmes that creates a community to fellow neighborhoods, job opportunities, and long-term business relationships in Kansas City.  Along my journey, I have been blessed to have mentors that have paved a way for me to get my feet on the ground. I hope in the next forty years I can lead a group of women and men and pass on a legacy that can last.My continual goal is to bring more opportunities to the real estate market and promote that every client is an investor. As we continue to grow, we are currently launching Kingdom Capital Property Management, a sister company, to enhance and engage owners with renters with a high level of integrity.
