BlaKe knew from a young age that his passion was people, often being described as “the talkative kid.” He integrated his passion with his acquired skills in marketing, communication, and an eye for detail to forge a successful career in luxury retail for over a decade.
With that same passion, he transitioned his skills in retail into handling clients in the building industry, including industry-leading builders, contractors, and remodelers. Working on the supplier side of a build, he was able to gain knowledge on new construction and remodels. That’s when the idea of bringing together his passions by becoming a real estate agent formed. After working in the real estate industry for a year, BlaKe attained his license while working for Compass Kansas City.
Being a 3rd generation Kansas Citian, the importance of community and being hospitable will always be the priority.
BlaKe strives to make each client feel like they are the only one, by making sure that communication is key. Listening and providing individualized experiences to homeowners and future homeowners is a practice BlaKe is bringing with him from his retail experiences to ensure each client can have the best and most stress-free process.
While from KC, BlaKe loves to explore the city as if he were a tourist, always finding new places to eat, drink, shop, and relax. Being described by friends as a “Brunch King”, he will ensure that his clients know what there is to do in and around their communities as their local expert.
BlaKe is quoted as saying his success and drive materialized from a conversation with Don Hall Jr. on entrepreneurship: “1. Enter each day as the owner of your own business because you are never ‘just’ anything, 2. Always have a good Manicure… You shake a lot of hands, always have clean ones. And 3. Treat the Janitor like the CEO because kindness is free.”
"Kristin Malfer and her staff were always on the ball when it came to closing on my property. Since I had already moved to the West Coast, I needed someone who could handle the entire process for me. They moved quickly when it came to appraisals, inspections, repairs and closing the sale.”
“Kristin and her team have assisted me in both purchasing and selling a home. New to Kansas City, I found her knowledge of the area to be extremely helpful. I would strongly recommend Malfer & Associates.”
“I have never been let down by Kristin Malfer or a member of her team. This is the 7th real estate transaction I have had the pleasure of using her office for and in this instance we used Alex. Alex did an amazing job, gave great advice, and in the end, we got the home we wanted.”

Kristin Malfer’s team is the BEST in KC!"
The Adcock Family
“Kristin Malfer and the entire team are consummate professionals! Kristin and her team have an uncanny ability to hit the ground running with a new listing as soon as they receive a green light to list a property. Listening, patience, dependability, cheer fulness and unbridled energy are just a few tools of her trade. They have our unqualified recommendation to anyone seeking true real estate professionals in the market they serve as they truly exceeded our expectations.”
