Leawood Real Estate
Leawood is considered one of the prettiest areas in northeastern Kansas, with the Blue River coursing through the south, and Indian Tomahawk Creek connecting in the central part of the city. Rolling hills and flat valleys make up the topography of this desirable community. Money Magazine has named Leawood one of “America’s Hottest Towns.” Its population growth, high education level, low unemployment, and home values attract upper-middle to high-income earners to the area. The city is home to the state’s wealthiest zip code, 66211. Johnson County is the state’s largest provider of employment, and Leawood residents rank the county as a great place to work.
The area features some of the finest dining opportunities and upscale shopping centers. Leawood is “growing with distinction,” attracting more than 950 businesses to the area. As the “new downtown” Town Center Plaza and Park Place offer upscale shopping and dining. Town Center Plaza has over 90 stores and restaurants, including Dean and Deluca, Pottery Barn, Jessica McClintock, Bombay Co., Harry & David, Bravo! Cucina Italiana, Bristol Seafood Grill, Hereford House, and more.
Leawood has an active schedule of concerts and events, including a “Taste of Leawood,” Jazz Concert Series, Labor Day Run, and Doggie Dunk.
