Evelyn Alvarez states “I absolutely love that Real-Estate is my career!  After nearly 10 years in the financial services industry, I decided to pursue my passion: people and their homes.  I am a wife and mother and I live in the northland on the “Missouri side”.  I moved to the KC area as a college student and fell in love with this big, crazy city and the warm-hearted folks who call it home.  My husband and I enjoy serving in our church, spending time with family (which includes the cat), gardening and home improvement projects, self-improvement opportunities, travel when possible, and the occasional quiet evening on our back deck.”
