Meet the Home Team
The Home Team likes to call themselves "small but mighty." The team comprises three real estate pros with varying years of experience but a shared dedication to working overtime for their customers. They're a brief starting line-up but more than enough team to hit home runs for the buyers and sellers they work for.
Vicki Benson, Broker/Owner
Vicki's roots are deep in northeast Missouri. Raised in "Kirksville Suburbia," Vicki grew up on a farm just outside LaPlata. She and her husband now own and maintain that same farm which she still calls "home." Graduating from LaPlata High School in 1983, Vicki moved to Kirksville to attend Northeast Missouri State University (now Truman State University) before going to work in the Kirksville business community and while making Kirksville her new home. In 1989 Vicki became licensed in real estate and began her new career with Heritage House Realty, where she practiced her profession for 22 years.
In May 2011, Vicki opened her new office under the RE/MAX Brand. She now operates as Broker/Owner of RE/MAX HOME TEAM. This is one member of management who's also on the roster -- a real team player in every sense of the word.
Vicki believes in commitment to her community. She is a member of Kirksville Chamber of Commerce and has served as an ambassador over the years. Vicki is a member and past board member of K-REDI, Inc., a local organization promoting economic development and industry in the community. From little league teams to all of our area's youth, she is dedicated to tomorrow's citizens.
Vicki is a member of Mary Immaculate Catholic Church in Kirksville. She co-founded Mary Immaculate Catholic Education Foundation, Inc., and serves on its Board of Directors. Vicki has served on Mary Immaculate's Parish Council and is especially committed to her church and school.
Vested in her community, Vicki and her husband Jay, a Kirksville attorney, own and operate a properties rental business (d/b/a Benson Properties) specializing in rental housing for local college students, medical students and area families.
Vicki has two children at Kirksville High School and is an avid supporter of and corporate booster for the Kirksville Tigers. Vicki and her husband live just outside of Kirksville with their best endeavor yet, their two teenage children.
