Excerpt from the Kansas City Business Journal's October 2022 publication:
"The Kansas City Business Journal continues its “20 to Know” series, introducing readers to people they should get to know in key industries and categories. In this installment, Editor Brian Kaberline and reporters Thomas Friestad and Nicole Dolan list 20 people to know in commercial real estate. For each, they provide an introduction and short explanation of why the person is included.
We designed this feature as a replacement for the Power 100 lists published in previous years. The aim isn’t to give you a list of people you might already know, but to show the depth and breadth of talent in the Kansas City area. We hope this feature will give you an excuse to reach out to those you already know and to provide a guide to others you might want to add to expand your network...
Binkley is strategic partnerships manager for Asset Management Group, an Overland Park company offering brokerage, property management and investment services.

Outside the office, Binkley has been president of the Pendleton Heights Neighborhood Association in Northeast Kansas City. He was selected for the fall 2022 class of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce’s Centurions Leadership Program."

Inheriting the OCTO Award plaque from our 2020 winner (the talented Holly Garringer), this person has exemplified all of the true makings of an Octo Award recipient as defined:
1) Displays fortitude in the eyes of unsurmountable odds
2) Demonstrates the ability to adapt to new circumstances rapidly
3) Tackles new challenges as though he/she has 8 arms
Beyond those traits, this person has been incredibly consistent and reliable from the very start. They consistently look for ways to better our processes and find solutions to help the team succeed, all without being asked to do so. As a foundational member of the commercial team at AMG as we know it today, this person leads their team with confidence and awareness, but without a shred of arrogance or cynicism (must be the country in them…). Their presence and leadership has become an invaluable asset over the last year at AMG and we look forward to seeing how they continue grow with the team in 2021.
Congratulations to the recipient of the 2021 Octo Award…. Alvin Edwards!
- Principal, Zach Batson
