Eric Papon joins the team to become our Inspection Specialist. We feel blessed at Wessel Team to have his extensive home remodeling, roofing and mechanic experiences along with a meticulous attention to detail (think pilot level ?) to help our clients navigate the inspection and request for repairs process.

 

Eric was born and raised in Hardtner KS where his parents still farm. Eric‘s professional background is in aviation. For real, he could legally fly before he could drive! Eric is a FAA licensed pilot that all started at the age of 14. He’s also a former US Air Force F-16 Crew Chief, FAA Certified Airframe & Powerplant Mechanic w/ Inspection Authorization, and Repairman Certificate. After all this time in aviation, Eric was looking for a change and it made sense to to join Leslie and the Wessel Team to use his extensive home and mechanical knowledge for the good of our real estate clients. 

 

Eric was a great addition to the team in February of 2023 and the ladies are just happy to have a resident man to help with some of our less “fun” tasks and Eric takes it in stride. (He really does think that part IS fun).

 

Eric and Leslie also co-manage their own rentals portfolio and attempt to keep four kids and a few pets happy and thriving. Eric is an excellent dad/bonus dad to their four kids (15, 13, 11 and 8). In his free time, he enjoys working on home projects with all of his DeWalt tools (don’t get him started on which new one he “needs”) outfitting his garage, trap shooting, watching his kids’ sports and traveling with Leslie and the kids (and more)! He’s kind of a hobby guy so tell him yours and he probably knows something about it!
