Education & Personal

In 2010, Luke L. Thompson graduated with a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from Washburn University . Luke graduated in the top 20% of his class earning straight A’s throughout the program and induction into Beta Gamma Sigma, an international honor society recognizing business excellence. Much of his project work was focused on the subject of residential and commercial real estate.

In 2003, Luke L. Thompson graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies from the University of Kansas. During college he polished his service and problem solving skills as a grocery store customer service department representative, foreman of a small house painting crew, and restaurant server on the Plaza in Kansas City.

Luke was born and raised in Topeka, KS. Luke attended Sumner Elementary, Shaner Elementary, Jardine Middle School, and Topeka High School. At Topeka High Luke was a member of the varsity baseball and junior varsity basketball teams. As an adult, he has lived for six years in a home he purchased through the TOTO Program (Topeka Opportunity To Own) and personally completely remodeled in the Highland Park area. He currently lives in his second personally rehabilitated home in Rolling Meadows near Shawnee Lake.

 

Professional Realtor

In July of 2007, Luke was recruited by Land Kansas Real Estate, and that spurred his decision to return to Washburn University in pursuit of his Masters of Business Administration (MBA). Every day in real estate Luke makes every effort to make the most of the professionalism, document review and preparation experience, tech savvy, and communication skill that he polished in his four years of public service to the State of Kansas. Anyone he has worked with in real estate will readily verify those facts and is forthcoming with good comments even when they are not solicited. In March of 2011, Luke joined Coldwell Banker Griffith & Blair (CBGB) after his comparative company analysis leading to his conclusion that CBGB has the most to offer Topeka’s real estate market in innovation and effectiveness.

Luke is active within the Topeka Area Association of Realtors (TAAR). For 2012 he has been nominated and elected by the membership of TAAR to serve a three year term on the TAAR Board of Directors. He also has served as member of TAAR’s Image and Technology Committee for four years. The committee works to maintain and improve Topeka’s multiple listing service (MLS) and Topeka’s primary consumer search engine for residential properties for sale

(www.TopekaAreaHomes.com) . Luke also serves on TAAR’s Government Affairs Committee.

 

Luke works with three different mortgage companies conducting Broker Price Opinions (BPO). These BPO’s provide him with the opportunity to get paid to practice doing Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) for soon to be foreclosure properties. As a result, Luke’s CMAs for residential property listings are of the highest quality and accuracy.

Luke has also embarked on a path to accumulate residential rental property. The path has so far been fruitful with regard to income and business learnings.

For many reasons, the change in career path and resuming his studies have noticeably served to invigorate his enthusiasm for work and life! It is illustrated best by his many recent successes and steadily increasing sales volume. Please give Luke a call or email and share your success with him in buying the home you have always aspired to own!

 

Past Professional Experience

Beginning in 2003, Luke served in the Office of Governor Kathleen Sebelius as Assistant to the Director of Board Appointments. Each year the Governor makes appointments to fill approximately 200 - 300 expiring positions on state boards and commissions (e.g. Kansas Real Estate Commission) and also agency positions. Luke’s related responsibilities included upgrading and maintaining the database used to track the appointments/expirations, reviewing Kansas statutes governing these appointments, preparing and editing the official appointment documentation for signature by the Governor, and corresponding with appointees about the process. He also conducted outreach to locate interested individuals for these positions. Luke’s other responsibilities included conducting and coordinating interviews and orientations for the Governor’s Intern Program.

In November of 2005, Luke began his work with the Kansas Health Policy Authority (KHPA), the State’s Medicaid agency. The agency has since been dismantled. Luke served as the Manager of Government Affairs (agency lobbyist) for two legislative sessions. Luke worked directly under the Executive Director of the agency. His primary responsibilities for the agency included tracking legislation through the complex legislative process, attending and reporting on daily legislative committee meetings, writing communication to the Legislature in the form of formal testimony, providing information for inquiries made by the Kansas Legislative Research Department and individual State Legislators, and serving specific constituent needs. Luke also created the agency website and held the responsibility of keeping its information current and up to date.­

Luke is amazing! I bought my house with him he made the process easy and smooth! And then a few years later when I decided to sell he was definitely the perfect fit for the job. We even had a few hiccups during the process, however with his help and dedication of Luke and Boomer we were able to close on time with an even better deal! I’d recommend them to anyone! Amazing!

I loved working with Luke, he was so patience and he pointed out things that I would not have noticed. He will defiantly look out for you!...It was nice looking for a home for my family knowing a realtor had my back.

Luke took the time to listen and understand the needs of our situation. With that information he arranged for us to view homes that would best meet those needs and as a result we found the perfect house. Luke never made us feel as though he was only out to make a sale. Rather, he was most concerned with us getting something that would satisfy the needs we had expressed. Luke also was very helpful in pointing out areas of concern in various homes, which further made us feel he was looking out for us. He was extremely responsive and kept us in the loop at all times throughout the process. I have worked with other realtors in the past and not had as positive experiences. Luke restored my faith that there are people out there who really care about their customers. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a good realtor, either as a seller or buyer!
