The Converse Company Real Estate was established in 1923 by Roger W. Converse. After buying the company from Russ Buddington in 1985, Kathy Feeney ran the company with intelligence, professionalism, and grace, carving out a niche in the local market for this boutique real estate firm that offers personalized service to clients. In 2020, Margot Feeney Kalkanis and Kristin Feeney became owners of the Converse Company and together carry on Kathy's legacy of professionalism, unparalleled knowledge of the local market, and unwavering ethics. While the faces have changed, the company's values and reputation have not. The Converse Company is Marion's oldest and most reliable real estate company, specializing in everything from rentals to waterfront sales. We are a co-operative brokerage and the agents in our office work side by side to meet all real estate needs. Our team works together to provide the best expertise and customer service possible. We take great pride in our professional relationships, our ethical approach, and our reputation.
