Rhonda Knop – McManus

January 3, 1947 – July 28, 2020

A Community Innovator. A Real Estate Legend. A Loving Family Member to All.

Rhonda was born in Wichita, KS on Jan 3, 1947 and began her legacy in 1968 when she graduated from Kansas State University. She started her life long path as a compassionate educator in a traditional school setting before kicking off her Real Estate career in 1979.

She has been a role model to many, and created a reputation that Realtors aspire to fulfill. Rhonda played an integral part in the commencement and continuing success of Distinctive Properties. She rooted her values in improving her clients’ lives, passionately pursuing her community’s evolving cohesion and always remembered that, at the end of the day, it was her family and friends that mattered most.

Her husband, two children, seven grandchildren and everyone in her inner circle were her true pride and joy! She began every day with the morning newspaper, fresh ground coffee and an internal agenda to connect with people while showing up sharply dressed for any occasion! When she wasn’t working, Rhonda enjoyed traveling, dancing, charity events and Afternoon Tea at the Brown Palace.

Her life purpose was to leave the Earth with more beauty, equality and kindness. All who knew her would validate she did just that!

On July 28th, 2020, Rhonda Knop closed on her new property in Heaven…and she is already making improvements!

Memorial contributions may be made in Rhonda’s name to the Redi Corporation, an established 501(c)(3) which is dedicating a legacy project in her name.
