Laura ‘LJ’ Lockhart

Real Estate Agent

Buying or selling a home is one of the most emotional and financially impacting decisions a person can make. To ensure your real estate transaction will go smoothly, choose to work with an expert. Laura 'LJ' Lockhart is one of the most trusted names in local real estate. In fact, she was voted Best Real Estate Agent in 2019 (Best of the Burg).

"One of the highlights of my real estate career is helping first time buyers achieve home ownership. A lot of times they haven't considered purchasing, and assume they can't afford to buy. I explain that when they are paying rent, they are already paying a mortgage; the landlord's! Often, the money required to purchase a house is about the same as a security deposit and first month's rent."

LJ and her family moved to Warrensburg in 2016 when her husband, Rich, accepted the position of Chief of Police for the city after retirement from a 26-year career with the Kansas City Police Department. They consider Warrensburg home now, and relish everything a small community offers. LJ is active in her community and enjoys her volunteer positions on various boards and committees.

As a full-time REALTOR®, LJ works with both buyers and sellers to navigate the Warrensburg area's real estate market. The wife of a law enforcement officer and the mom of an airman, LJ is familiar with the specialized needs of first responder families and families moving into/from the community due to military transfer assignments. She offers video walk-throughs for clients unable to go from house to house due to work hours, distance or out of state buyers. LJ participates in exclusive lending programs with various banks and mortgage companies that help with closing costs on behalf of our community heroes: first responders, military, educators and healthcare professionals.

LJ publishes both a monthly digital magazine (American Lifestyle) and a bi-monthly print magazine (Start Healthy). If you would like to receive either, shoot LJ an email and she will add you to her list!
