Ward Schraeder is a jack of all trades. A self-made Kansas man, Ward believes in the rewards of hard work.

He’s involved in a number of businesses ranging from managing medical facilities to banking. And although he keeps busy juggling his many careers, he enjoys spending time on his ranch in the quiet prairie of Kansas.

He also co-stars with his daughter, Interior Designer Tamara Day, on the HGTV Television Network home re-design show series “Bargain Mansions,” helping Tamara and her team redo Kansas City area homes.
