"I am so excited for this opportunity," said Johnson. "I have been alongside my mom as she helped build Crye-Leike in Saline County. We both know that this office will continue to grow and produce professional, educated REALTORS who can serve our communities. I have big shoes to fill, as Karen has been the best managing broker and mentor to so many."
