Go into a shopping center or downtown restaurant, even a casino or concert hall, and you may be in a community improvement district. And unless you check your receipt, you may never know it. CIDs allow additional sales taxes, property tax assessments or both to pay for improvements or services that have some public good. Use of the tool has mushroomed in the Kansas City area. Kansas City alone has 27 CIDs that, collectively, are expected to raise about $10 million in the fiscal year ending April 30.
Dan took a leap of faith 30 years ago, from the family automobile business to the real estate industry. He built his commercial real estate practice in the Kansas City area. As a CCIM and SIOR, he leads the commercial division of Reece & Nichols – a 2,000-agent Home Services of America, a Berkshire Hathaway Affiliate.
Dan is CEO of Reece & Nichols’ commercial division, Reece Commercial. Reece Commercial won the Ingrams Gold Award in 2013 for the Best Commercial Real Estate Company in Kansas City. Dan’s company has grown in 4 short years to a 15 agent company.
When he stepped into the business in 1985 he made a commitment to giving back to the industry through leadership. He has made his way through local, state, region and national leadership positions at NAR and CCIM.
His most recent position at NAR is Chair of Realtors® Property Operations Committee, RPOC, or in other words – the building committee. This committee manages four NAR buildings in three cities (Chicago, Washington DC and Cincinnati). Dan was just asked to be the 2015 Commercial Liason to NAR’s Executive Committee.
Dan is a Missouri Tiger graduating in 1979 with an accounting degree.
