About
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! laura@olddrumre.com

Clients Are Saying

Widely respected in the Warrensburg area, Laura Lockhart serves clients with the utmost integrity and dedication to exceptional service. Here are her recent reviews.

five stars

"I was recommended to use LJ to sell our house here in Warrensburg for our big move closer to KC. It is probably the best decision I have ever made. Not only did she sell our house fast, but we got a really good price for it. Her knowledge of the area and marketing skills are second to none. Since this was our first time selling a house, she took the time to answer all of our questions, no matter how small (and there were ALOT of questions!). I appreciated her honesty and upfront nature to prepare our house for sale. Would use her again in a heartbeat!"

"LJ is AMAZING! I live 6 hours away and when I couldn’t make it to sign paperwork or meet with a contractor she did for me! Seriously the Lockhart’s are and awesome family and I’m so lucky to have met them. I would highly recommend LJ if you are selling or buying, she is very knowledgeable and has background in marketing! She made this process so easy and stream line! I’m very thankful for her and highly recommend her!"

"LJ impressed us with her ability to navigate the selling process and to complete the sale. We had two qualified bids on our property, within a relatively short time."

Sold a Multi Family home in 2020 in Warrensburg, MO.

"Although our realtor in Illinois did all the work for us and Laura made us do a little more legwork ourselves, I truly believe differences in state codes, as well as VA loan policies to protect veterans and possibly family commitments played a huge factor. I also think the size of real estate companies played a factor. I think Laura did a great job in negotiating a fair price for all parties and I would immediately use her again in future real estate matters!"

"Laura was a pleasure to work with. We were always made to feel that we were her highest priority. She took the time to get to know us and show us properties that she knew would be more in line with what our needs were. She was very professional in all matters. We highly recommend her and would be willing to use her in the future if the need arose."
