About Cory
Since the day Cory Ward became a Realtor, he’s been on a mission: To create more value for his clients than ever before. Driven by peerless professionalism, expansive industry knowledge, and superior service, Cory lives up to that mission every day by building seamless experiences that always give his clients an edge. 

A native of Kansas City, Cory moved back home after a successful stint as a Commodities Broker to launch his real estate career. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Cory jumped at the chance to leverage his skill set, passion for people, and local knowledge to help buyers and sellers at all price points and phases of life. Unsurprisingly, real estate proved to be the perfect fit, and he hasn’t looked back since. 

Today, Cory is an established agent on the Kansas City scene, guiding his clients with white-glove support, unrivaled insight, and a penchant for finding the fun in any situation. When selling, Cory harnesses the power of staging and Compass Concierge to help his clients maximize the return on their most prized investment. For buyers, on the other hand, Cory’s extensive local knowledge is the competitive advantage anyone needs to navigate the Kansas City market both smoothly and successfully. Whether you’re looking to buy in Mission Hills, Sunset Hills, Prairie Village, Leawood, Brookside, or Fairway (where he leads the market in sales today), Cory applies his vast experience and deep-rooted relationships to connect clients with the right home for them — even when it has yet to hit the market. For Cory, being part of a big family with enduring ties to the Kansas City community also means having a network that spans multiple generations — an asset to many clients in their journey to buy or sell. 

When he’s not working for his clients, you can find Cory spending time with his wife and kids, golfing, fly fishing, and finding any excuse to get outdoors. He loves giving back to the community he calls home, which he does regularly through his work with several local organizations.
