Kevin Swift knows Topeka, Shawnee, Jackson and Osage Counties—in a way that only someone who has lived in NE Kansas for over 40 years can. Topeka is the city where he raised his own children, and the area where he has practiced as an award-winning REALTOR for over two decades. Kevin specializes in Topeka from $100,000 to $750,000 price levels, along with rural/country/farm properties in Shawnee and surrounding counties.
A dedicated member of the RE/MAX family of agents, Kevin strives to match every family and individual with their dream home through perseverance, careful attention to his clients’ wishes, and a genuine love of his work. And his perseverance pays off: for six years running he ranked among the Top 25 Individual RE/MAX agents in Kansas for number of homes sold. He has been inducted into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame and the Sunflower Area Association of REALTOR Masters Club.
Kevin strongly believes in supporting and giving back to his local community and contributes both his time and resources to local organizations and charities such as: Topeka Rescue Mission, Doxazo, Restore Hope, Children’s Palace, Fellowship Bible Church, Focus on the Prophecies Ministry, and others. He has served his industry while on the Board of Directors of the Sunflower Area Association of REALTOR.
As a former professional photographer, in 2011 Kevin introduced marketing homes with high quality, eye-catching photography, using high-end equipment and lens. Fact is, this photography doubles the average number of showings over his competition. He has helped thousands of buyers and sellers, and many of his clients have referred others because of their positive experience.
