Justin Harris first got started in real estate in 1999 as an attorney in a private law practice. His legal work included representing residential and commercial real estate developers, buyers and sellers, lenders, and title companies, as well as real estate brokers and agents. He has provided advice and assistance in nearly every aspect imaginable of the real estate world.
Because of his real estate and business experience, Justin was recruited from private practice into a executive position as Senior Vice President and General Counsel of a large hotel and resort development and management company. His work there involved the development, financing, construction, and operation of hospitality projects and properties.
Building on his experiences in real estate and business, Justin left to begin investing and developing his own business interests, including residential and commercial development, redevelopment, and investment.
Justin serves as the Broker of Old Drum Real Estate, where he puts his knowledge and experience to work for his real estate clients and agents.
Justin is a graduate of Truman State University (back when it was Northeast Missouri State) and Drake University School of Law. He also formerly served in the United States Army Reserves.
Justin and his wife Melanie live in Warrensburg. They have four children and are active in their church and community organizations.
