What does EKS stand for?


Ed & Karen Brown started Ed & Karen Services (eventually EKS, Inc.) in the 1980's offering appraisal services & insurance products. Ed was a long-standing and active member in the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers, along with the Missouri Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers. Ed and Karen continued to serve throughout NW MO & SW IA, while slowly growing the appraisal firm. Eventually Ed & Karen transitioned the name to EKS Inc. Appraisal Services, and in 2018 they sold the business to Angela Brown Bickford and Nick Loghry who continued to offer the same quality of appraisal services under the name EKS Appraisals, Inc.
