About the Company:

Milestone Realty and Development was created out of a desire to not just look at what real estate is at face value, but to truly look at what its potential is for the future and what is the highest and best use.  Through continued market research, dedication to relationships with the city of Manhattan and the surrounding towns and counties, and an understanding of many different areas of Real Estate Milestone Realty and Development seeks to engage clients in a way that will eliminate as much stress as possible from each transaction.  Our philosophy is built off the thought that while every transaction involves property, it is about the people.  


About the Broker/Owner: 

Eric Neilson is the Broker and Owner of Milestone Realty and Development, a Real Estate Agency in Manhattan, KS specializing in Commercial, Land, and Residential transactions.


Eric was born and raised on a farm outside of Randolph, KS and attended Kansas State University where he received a Bachelor’s Degree, a Master’s Degree as well as an Additional Master’s Level Certification. Prior to Real Estate Eric worked for Universities in New Mexico and Texas, before returning home to Kansas State to work as an Assistant Director.  While loving his job at K-State, Eric knew that he wanted to find more flexibility to be able to spend time with his family while his children were still young.  His background in working with Housing as well as construction and development for university campuses allowed him to have a good knowledge base when moving over into Real Estate.  After a successful start to his Real Estate career he then took the last big step to open his own Real Estate brokerage here in Manhattan and truly enjoys working with new clients everyday and helping them achieve their Real Estate goals. 


Eric and his wife Anna live in Manhattan with their two children, Kathryn and William.  They love the community here and are grateful to be able to raise their children inside of such an amazing environment.  Besides time with his family Eric also enjoys smoking up good BBQ for others to enjoy!


Eric is passionate about serving and being involved within the community.  He is active within the Konza Rotary Club, The Manhattan Historical Society, serves on a board for the city of Manhattan, and is member of New Hope Church.  He is also a participating member of the Manhattan and Wamego Chamber of Commerce, the Flint Hills Builder’s Association, and the National, Kansas, and Manhattan Association of Realtors.      


Eric’s personal feeling on real estate and what he keeps as his personal mantra is:



“If it ever becomes more about the property than it does about the person, then that is the day that I quit.”
