Acquisition moves local real estate firm into Top 10 in U.S.

Auben Realty, a full-service real estate investment brokerage based in Augusta, has acquired Voepel Property Management and Canopy Road Real Estate, renowned local experts in investment brokerage and comprehensive property management services based in Kansas City, MO. This strategic combination represents a significant step forward for both companies, combining their strengths to create an even more formidable presence in the real estate market nationwide.

Auben Realty and Voepel Property Management share a common vision for providing property management solutions and fostering positive growth within the industry. The combination will leverage the synergies between the two companies, amplifying their ability to meet the diverse needs of property owners, residents, and investors.

Following this acquisition, Auben is poised to become one of the top 10 largest privately owned SFR property management companies in the United States. This achievement underscores the commitment of both entities to expand their footprint and services to clients and investors nationwide.


“This is an exciting chapter in Auben’s evolution. By combining our expertise, resources, and shared values with Voepel, we are prepared to create a powerhouse in the full-service property management sector in the Midwest,” said Tyson Schuetze, Auben’s Founder and CEO. “We firmly believe in building upon the foundation that Voepel has shaped through the years in Kansas City and look forward to continued market growth with their team.”

The new brand of Voepel Property Management, powered by Auben, reflects both companies and their dedication to delivering exceptional investor and resident experiences, together. Clients can expect a seamless transition with enhanced services, cutting-edge technology, and expanded portfolio offerings.

Scheutze expanded upon the partnership in a recent LinkedIn post.

“Over the course of many conversations and negotiations with Brent Voepel and the Voepel team, we found a strong synergy between his desire to grow and our ability to provide Brent the operational backbone he needed. Equally important, Brent’s business is in a fundamentally sound market (Kansas City) which we intend to be in for the next 30 years. We are excited by the immediate economies of scale we have both already achieved and the opportunities we are now able to immediately, collectively pursue. If you are looking for SFR investment assistance in KC, we are now open for business. As the song says, ‘Going to Kansas City, Kansas City here we come!’”
