Horse Property Specialist
Born and raised in the Kansas City area, Dana’s passion for real estate was an inherited trait. Her dad bought and sold farms in Johnson and Miami counties in Kansas and Colorado for over 50 years. Her family spent many Sundays driving around looking at farms for sale. At 16, she worked at a real estate company putting together farm ads for their brochure and invested her summer earnings in her first ten-acre purchase. Dana worked for her dad off and on over the years, learning from a master land investor. After graduating from a Missouri high school, she attended The University of Kansas for three years, and finished her last year at the University of Missouri in Kansas City, where she obtained her Bachelor’s of Business Administration, with an emphasis in marketing.
During college, she worked at the historic Benjamin Ranch. Through her association with the ranch, she was given the opportunity to hone her marketing skills and later as member of the Benjamin family, became involved with buying and selling of farms on the Missouri side. During this time, she
became acquainted with a great number of people in the horse industry.
In 2001, she decided to put her considerable experience toward helping others buy and sell land, horse property, and residential real estate. “Joining Reece and Nichols was a great decision and a perfect match for me. I wanted to be
associated with the dominant force in the Kansas City real estate market and the company with the most cutting-edge technology.”
Dana is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Kansas Association of Realtors, the Kansas City Regional Association of Realtors, and the Heartland Multiple Listing Service and the Lawrence Board of Realtors.
Dana is on the Board of Directors for Heartland Therapeutic Riding, a sponsor and volunteer for the American Royal, a member of the Kansas Horse Council, and the American Quarter Horse Association.
Committed to growth and self-improvement, Dana attends the National Association of Realtors Convention, the International Builders’ Show, webinars and continuing education on a regular basis. When it comes to marketing, her “outside the box” approach sets her apart from other realtors and maximizes exposure of her listings and brand. In 2016, Dana’s team reached a new high and sold over $16 million in real estate.

Caitlin’s love of horses started at a very young age. Born into the Benjamin family of Kansas City’s historic Benjamin Ranch, she was raised in the rodeo, boarding, and dude ranch business. She pursued her dreams of barrel racing, winning Kansas State High School Barrel Racing Champion in 2005 and went on to compete on a National level. She traveled the country, winning countless buckles, saddles and prize money on multiple horses. After college, she began coaching kids, helping them hone their skills and teaching them how to get in the winner’s circle. At the same time, she began a successful breeding program with several of her champion mares. After her son was born in 2014, she decided to stay closer to home and ease into the real estate business with her mom, Dana Benjamin. Now, a full-time real estate agent, Caitlin is back in the “winner’s circle,” successfully helping buyers and sellers close on their horse properties. She lives in south Kansas City on a 300-acre family farm and works both sides of the state line. If you’re looking for a diligent, hard-working, relationship-oriented and knowledgeable realtor, contact Caitlin and let her go to work for you.
