About Manhattan

Nestled in the Flint Hills, Manhattan is a vibrant community filled with opportunities for all ages and stages of life. Legacy Realty of Kansas owners, Jodi Thierer and Patty Boomer, have made Manhattan their home since graduating from Kansas State University. They fell in love with the small-town atmosphere with big city amenities. The nickname “Manhappiness” truly describes their experience whether it is the fine education system, cultural and sporting activities, unique shopping and dining, or excellence in health care, Manhattan has so much to offer and it is the perfect place to build your Legacy.

"I have bought and sold several homes and Patty has always been my REALTOR. I've been very pleased with her services throughout all the transactions." — Karen T.
