Hi, I am Rick Hansen. I moved to the area almost 15 years ago and then retired from the military and stayed here, because it is such a great area. I would recommend either Leavenworth or Lansing because both are close to Ft. Leavenworth. The beauty of living in the area is the short commute time. Both school disticts are good. There are both new housing developments, as well as older neighborhoods to rent or buy. I am a Realtor and have my own Property Management business. Feel free to contact me if you have more questions about renting or buying.
