Lawrence Lady Boss | KATIE DESCH



Meet Katie Desch, a real estate agent and the owner of R+K Real Estate Solutions, LLC​.  R+K Real Estate Solutions, LLC is a small, independent, brokerage featuring an out-of-the-box approach to real estate in Lawrence, KS. "My husband and I started our company with a mission to empower our clients to save (often thousands of dollars) during the home selling and buying processes." They offer a tiered flat-fee system for their sellers, and a buyer rewards program for their buyers.

What is your goal for the next year?

To continue growing our business, and (fingers crossed) make up for all the lost in-person opportunities of 2020! I can't wait to get back out and about! 

Who has influenced you the most?

My mom, and other strong women like Iris Apfel and Vivienne Westwood. To be grounded, live your truth, and write your own story.

What one piece of advice do you give to other business owners?

Support local! Supporting each other, we can grow both our businesses and our community. Owning a small business and networking a new one is such a challenge during COVID-19 - let's help each other out!

When you are not working, what are you doing?

I'm a mom of three kids (ages 6, 4, and 2) with one on the way, so life is always busy! During the COVID-19 season we've enjoyed checking out all the parks and nature trails Lawrence has to offer.

What Lawrence hidden gem do you recommend everyone checks out?

Ooh...this is a tough one! There are so many Lawrence gems to check out, but a truly hidden stop to check out would be Formosa Bakery, a local Taiwanese shop featuring boba and desserts.

If you could change one thing about your business, what would you change?

We saw a need for change - or at least, more options - in the real estate world, so that's exactly what we're bringing with our business!
