Founded in 2005 by Ed Westerman, a realtor with 30 years of experience, the new company was developed to expand into the larger market of the Springfield metro area.  Prior coverage, as an individual broker, had generally been limited to the rural area of Christian County.  The new company took on several agents.

Ed Westerman, the Broker/Owner of Country Lifestyle Realty, L.L.C., started in the insurance and real estate business in 1976, after purchasing an agency in his home town.  As a community minded individual, Ed has been involved in the politics of Clever, Mo. over the past thirty five years as a reserve police officer, a volunteer fire fighter, serving on the city council, the planning and zoning board and the city parks board.

Country Lifestyle Realty, L.L.C. now works in the Springfield MSA that covers Greene, Christian, Stone, Taney, Lawrence, Polk, Dallas, and Webster counties.
