About Royal Investment Properties

Royal Investment Properties loves working with people and land, and transforming someone’s property into someone else’s dream estate. We want to buy land that people are selling, and we’ll do all the work to get it ready to sell, make improvements along the way and navigate the closing process. By doing so, we solve problems and relieve burdens for sellers, and we make it so they don’t have to mess with or worry about anything.


• Royal was founded in 2016 by Daniel Earhart. Jay Thomason joined as partner in 2018. • Royal is based in Lee’s Summit, Missouri – a few miles southeast of Kansas City. • The company acquires and manages property across Kansas and Missouri.
Leadership and Staff
  • Royal is owned and operated by its two managing partners:
    1. Daniel Earhart
      • He brings a background in site management, forestry and soil science, and a sincere passion for land.
    2. Jay Thomason
      • He combines his deep love of the outdoors with a background in security, criminal justice and detail-oriented operations.
  • The company has a team of highly skilled real estate professionals (legal counsel for contracts, agreements and civil or probate cases, surveyors, title professionals for closings and title defect remedies, etc.) across Kansas and Missouri.
Core Values
• Integrity – Above all else, Royal does the right thing for everyone it works with and the land it works on. • Empathy/Respect – Royal listens to understand first, and then works to honor the land and the people associated with it. • Relationship – With everyone it works with, Royal seeks to build lasting connections based on mutual trust, honesty and transparency. • Resourcefulness – Royal makes the land business as simple and easy for sellers as possible, by pulling in the best people and processes whenever it can.

Why Sell to Royal Investment Properties?

Selling a piece of land can be an unknown process, and often times there are deep emotions tied to it. What’s different about Royal Investment Properties, and why sell your property to them?
There are many reasons, including:

• Royal is based in the Kansas City area, and owned and staffed by people who have lived in Kansas and Missouri their entire lives. Many investors live in different places from the properties they own, which doesn’t enable them to gain a full appreciation for the land itself and any issues or situations that surround it. Royal knows the land and people it works with.
• Royal only acquires, improves and sells land and property in Kansas and Missouri. With a sharper and more local focus, it has deep knowledge of the issues, regulations and nuances related to properties in those states. Accordingly, it’s better positioned to counsel landowners through situations related to their property.
• Royal’s owners (Daniel and Jay) love the outdoors and appreciate the intrinsic value that land adds to a person’s or family’s life. They also want to help others realize that value however they can.
• Royal has a reputation for high-integrity, transparent, respectful operations. They’re great people who want everyone to feel like they got a good deal.
