Community Highlights: Meet Cameron Burke of DiscoverKC Real Estate

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cameron Burke.

Hi Cameron, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I grew up in Prairie Village in a divorced home as an only child. Growing up in the Prairie Village area – I was involved heavily in Basketball and volunteer work in the community such as Operation Breakthrough. I went to high school at Shawnee Mission East and always had a hard time fitting in and making friends.

During high school – my father lost his battle with cancer my Junior Year and my Aunt who served as a second mother committed suicide leaving our family in shambles. At that point and to this day – I had to find community and guidance in my best friends today. Not only are they my best friends but truly serve as brothers. My single mother worked hard to build her career as a nurse throughout my childhood helping me achieve my goals today.

After high school – I attended Johnson County Community college to pursue a career in Physical Therapy. After many trivial times and in the midst of the pandemic – I decided to drop out of college and search within to truly understand where my passions are and who I was as a young adult. During the pandemic – my current job as a server in the Power and Light district was taken from me as the lockdown shut down many of the restaurants in the city.

I spent much time in my one-bedroom apartment researching and learning not only about self-improvement – but more about the next endeavor I would take on: real estate. Not knowing where to begin – I googled the successful real estate agents in the city both in residential and commercial real estate to meet with them whether it be coffee or even a zoom call to pick their brains and hopefully find an opportunity to work with the best.

I found my home in Discover KC and with the rest of the team. During my start in real estate – I worked 3 jobs including my real estate position with the Discover KC team. FInding much success in my early career – I was able to go above and beyond the normal first-year agent and successfully sell 7 homes in my first 6 months in the business.

Now – still maintaining the serving job downtown and my real estate job – I continue to break the “norm” and pursue greatness through the support of the people that got me here and personal development. I would love to spend more time discussing my journey over the phone or in person.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Not at all. It was a struggle making friends, finding myself, and getting past the death of my father and the suicide of my aunt. Working through the pandemic and losing my job. Becoming an entrepreneur. Living alone.
