Group O’Dell was founded by Dan and Maria O’Dell in 1995. Since then we have approached the real estate business to serve, teach and create long term relationships.
Group O’Dell is composed differently than most ordinary real estate teams in order to provide the most experience and support for each client.

Maria found her calling in real estate after a successful career with Commerce Bank as the Manager of Customer Service and Operations Officer. Her natural ability for understanding her client’s needs and how to serve them has translated effortlessly into the real estate field. When Maria and her husband, Dan, started this journey more than 20 years ago, they dedicated their careers to elevating the real estate industry by setting higher standard for serving their clients. Her passion for creating meaningful relationships and a cohesive experience for all their clients has consistently led Group O’Dell to be one of Kansas City’s top teams in real estate.
Buffini & Company Ambassador since 2012, Maria and Dan were awarded the 2016 Mentors of the Year from more than 2,500 active Buffini & Company Certified Mentors for their training of local vendors and real estate professionals. Licensed in Kansas and Missouri since, 1998, Maria also earned designations as a HomeStager, Accredited Buyers Rep and Certified Sales Professional. Maria’s passion for helping others extends beyond her clients. She has been a long-time supporter and board member since 2018 for SafeHome which provides shelter, advocacy, counseling and education for Domestic Abuse survivors to the Kansas City community.
