Get to Know Nick Shepard — 7 Fun Facts

KC NARI: What is the most valuable aspect of your membership with Kansas City NARI?
Shepard: Surrounding myself with other professionals that are constantly trying to better themselves, their companies and our industry. 
KC NARI: What is your vision (big or small) as President of Kansas City NARI? 
Shepard: I believe the vision of the President should align with the best interests of the members of our association. I feel it’s the President’s responsibility to represent the members of the association and make sure the association is providing value to them.
KC NARI: What do you like most about working at/owning KC Home Solutions?

Shepard: Every day in remodeling provides its own challenges, and I love the challenge. Getting to work with the people in our company that are dedicated to providing the best client experience inspires me. No project is the same, no client is the same. 

KC NARI: Who would you want to be stranded with on a deserted island?
Shepard: My wife and my kids, Swiss Family Robinson style. 

KC NARI: What is your favorite family vacation?  
Shepard: Ski Trip. I love the mountains and I really enjoy watching my kids try new things not in their comfort zone. There’s nothing more satisfying than watching them learn something new and succeed at it.    

KC NARI: What is your favorite game or sport to watch and play?
Shepard: It has always been professional football. However, my daughters have really gotten into softball. Now I enjoy watching College Women’s Softball as much as anything. 

KC NARI: List two pet peeves.  
Nick: I am a pretty tolerable person so I had to dig deep! I can’t stand when people talk to animals or significant others in a baby voice.
Second one (again digging deep): When driving on a two-lane road and the left lane is open yet the person going straight stays in the right lane so you cant make a right turn until the light changes. This is probably because I only allow myself enough time to get places in the “Nick of time.”
