Spring Feels

As spring approaches, it begins to bring more life and color to the Ozarks. The birds are soaring across the sky, the deer are prancing through the fields, and turtles are crossing the road. The grass is getting greener and the flowers are blooming in an assortment of colors. This beautiful season is a great time to sell or buy a new home. These amazing Ozark creatures shouldn't be the only ones enjoying the wonderful outdoors. Let's stop to smell the flowers and search for your own cozy den.

There is so much love to be celebrated this month. Many of us celebrate the love for our significant other, for family, friends, children, and even our pets. What about celebrating the love of a new home? If you've been thinking about selling or buying a new home, I can help you! Before you know it, you'll fall in love with a new master bedroom or that big backyard you've been dreaming about. I may not be cupid, but I can help you fall in love with the home of your dreams.

Winter Has Arrived

For some, winter means sipping hot cocoa by a fire, knitting, crocheting on the couch, binge-watching TV shows, or baking. For others, it's snowboarding, skiing, building snowmen, sledding, and snowball fights. No matter how you enjoy the winter weather, you should be enjoying it from a cozy home. I can help you find the home that will provide the most pleasant winter experience. Let's bundle up and find you a new home to settle down in this New Year.

Ozark Winter

As winter and Christmas sneak up on us, so will the cold and snow. I want to ensure you're in the perfect home that will keep you and your pets safe and warm this season. Whether you enjoy the beauty of the white fluff covering the roof and ground or you're already counting down the days until summer, being in a new home can bring you more joy this winter season. If you're asking Santa for a new home, and you're on the nice list, give me a call and I'll send a message to the North Pole so he can get you into a new home.

November is the month to reflect on the things we are thankful for and to count our blessings. It is also a great month to purchase a new home. There are many things we should be thankful for and many things that can come with purchasing a new home this time of year:

Thanksgiving meal with the family

Heart full of love and happiness

Awesome adventures 

New home decor

Kids will be overjoyed 

Fun experiences

Unite family and friends

Long lasting memories

A glowing sunset among the clouds.

Ozark Sunsets

As spooky season approaches, there's nothing spooky about these Ozark sunsets in the fall. The leaves are falling, the sun is glowing, and the evenings are refreshing. Sunsets aren't the only beautiful sight this time of year. There are also many beautiful homes ready for purchase. Give me a call and I can show you some homes where you can enjoy these picturesque sunsets. With over 35 years of experience, I am confident I can find something that will fit your family's needs and give those trick-or-treaters a new place to stop.

Head in the Clouds

Clouds remind us that everything changes. Change can be daunting, but change can also be a blessing. Changing homes may sound overwhelming, but it can be very rewarding, especially when working with the right realtor. I would love to help you take that leap of faith into finding that new home or selling your current home. If you've been hesitant to take that leap, let me help you ease that transition. As an experienced realtor, I will make this process worth it for you. Let the clouds be a reminder that many things are possible, even though they seem beyond your reach.

National Dog Month

When searching for a new home, you can't forget about the 4-legged children. Whether you've got a small or large fur baby, they all need space to run, play fetch, stretch, and cuddle. As an animal lover myself, I can help you sniff out the perfect patch of grass for the furry ones too. Give me a call and let's celebrate National Dog Month by finding you the perfect home where you'll all have a dog waggin' good time.

Summer Lovin'

Summer in the Ozarks offers endless amounts of fun, and there's something for everyone, just like the new home options. Are you a water lovin' enthusiast? You've got many bodies of water to choose from for your fishing, boating, kayaking, or paddleboarding needs. Imagine purchasing a new home with amazing views of the lake or a back door that overlooks the river. There is an abundance of summer activities in the Ozarks and several homes to choose from. Let's kick off the summer with the purchase of a new home!

School's Out, Summer's In

As school wraps up for the year and graduates are gearing up for a new chapter, you can be purchasing a new home! Once the school year ends and the summer begins, this is the perfect time to move into a new home. The kiddos will be out for summer break, and you'll have more helpers to pack and move. Before you know it, you can be having a BBQ in your new backyard, enjoying your morning coffee on your new porch, or hosting a housewarming party to get your family and friends together. Let me know what features you are interested in so you can enjoy the summer in your new home.

Fly Into a New Home

Searching high and low for a new home can be daunting, but I can help you break out of that cocoon and flutter into a wonderful new home. There are so many things to consider when purchasing a new home. Size, color, price, and location, just to name a few.  Spreading those wings can be a difficult first start, but with over 35 years of realty experience, I can help you fly into a new home with ease.

Change can be overwhelming, but change can also be a beautiful thing.

It was a Beautiful Fall in the Ozarks

I'm always excited when autumn rolls around and the trees are ablaze in reds, golds, and oranges. This fall was warm and mild, making the trails and woods especially inviting. The natural beauty of the Ozarks is a major WOW factor for first-time visitors and, for those of us lucky enough to live here, offers year-round opportunities for recreation, entertainment, and escape.

If you're considering making a move to the Ozarks, I'm here to help. Just give me a call: 870-421-7978.

Zillow is Great, but an Agent is Better!

During the pandemic, the red hot real estate market fueled a new pastime for many - scrolling through online property listings. While we're always glad to see an increased interest in real estate, it's important to remember that the information on third-party sites may not reflect the actual status of the listing. I've had more than one client call to look at property they've found online, only to learn that it is already under contract, or has recently sold. The best way to make sure your getting the most recent property information is to give me a call. I can check our listings and the official MLS database to give you the most up-to-date info on what's REALLY available to suit your desired location and budget. When you're ready to relocate, I'm here to help. Just give me a call: 870-421-7978.

New Year - New Home

The holiday season is an introspective time for me as I count my many blessings and looking forward to the possibilities of the coming year.

While 2020 may not have been anything like I imagined, it did shine a spotlight on the value of my relationships with others and emphasized how comforting HOME is for everyone.

As a realtor, I am truly blessed to be able to help people find their place to call home - from young people just starting out, to busy families needing plenty of space, to seniors looking for their dream place to retire.   

I would love to help YOU find your place to call home. Now is the perfect time to begin your search. You could be in a new home to celebrate the New Year. I can also help list your current home when you're ready to sell.

Just give me a call and let's get started! 870.421.7978

Cooler temps & HOT Market

Crisp fall air is cooling the Ozarks but, home sales throughout the Twin Lakes Area are still HOT!

With low interest rates fueling a resurgence in home and property sales, it's never been a better time to get into a first home, a family home, or a forever home.

It has been an exciting few months in the real estate world. I've truly enjoyed the daily interactions with my clients as we work together to find the best property to suit their needs. This often means taking quick action to schedule a showing, answering questions well into the night to help in the decision-making process, and working hard to secure that perfect home for my clients.

Whether you are selling or buying (or both), I promise to exceed your expectations and make the process as smooth as possible.

If you'd like to take advantage of this upswing in the market to list your property, I'd love to explore the possibilities with you. If you're looking for a new place to call home, I'd love to help. Give me a call: 870.421.7978

Home for the Holidays 2019

This time of the year is one of my favorite seasons of all. The brisk weather is balanced out by the warm holiday cheer that spreads through the air. The trees are showing their vibrant colors and will soon shed those colors, knowing they will thrive again in the spring with blooms of new life.

This is arguably the best time of year to buy a new home. Treat yourself to a new home as a gift! You can buy a new home to host your family and friends for dinner or celebrations - make traditions, leave a legacy, provide a warm, loving environment for happiness and excitement at this time of the year... Everything that the holidays are about!

The holiday season is also a great time of year to sell your home. Buyers are likely buying by a certain deadline, if they are searching for a home during the holidays. They may also have more time available to view homes and do research, since people normally have more time off during this time of year.

Whatever your reason for seeking out realty services, my experience and dedication to this area will help you! We can sell your home this holiday season - or help you find the home of your dreams. Call me today at 870-421-7978.

Hello again, Spring!

As winter wraps up and we finally welcome spring, I remember that spring is a great time in our community – a new baseball season begins, spring break brings a week of fun and relaxation for our students, and graduation draws near. I love celebrating these good times in our community. Beautiful trees and plants are blooming and I can just feel the renewed energy in the air.

Now is the time for new beginnings in your life! If you are looking to purchase or sell your home or land, call me. With over 30 years of real estate business, I can help you turn those new beginnings into new dreams and new life adventures.

I look forward to the great times that spring will bring for our community and the real estate business!

Dedicated to serving all with real estate needs in Mountain Home and the surrounding area

Here is a testimonial from the youngest home-buyer I have worked with so far in my career:

“I started as a student intern with Danny at the age of 17. I am interested in the Real Estate world, particularly Real Estate Investing, but also partly interested in being an agent. From the first time I met Danny, I knew he had a passion for his job and was very good at what he does.

Over the course of interning with him, I decided to attempt to make my first home purchase. Danny walked me through the process more than he was ever expected to. Being 18 years old and purchasing my first home was overwhelming, but Danny was there to help every step of the way. He provided me numerous links to houses in the community daily and gave me input on why each one would be a good or a bad investment. We looked at several homes without much luck, because many of the houses in my price range needed so much structural work that they would have put me in a financial hole.

When I was ready to give up on the hunt and start looking at rental homes, he promised that he wouldn’t give up and he would find me the perfect home. On May 19, at about 8 AM, I got a call from Danny and he was so excited, asking me the earliest I would be able to look at a home he had found. When we met at the home a few hours later, I knew it was the perfect starter home. I put in my offer and we started the process.

Complications arose in my loan, pushing my closing date back about a month. It seemed to be one problem after the next, and of course as a first-time and very young buyer, it was stressful. Danny assured me he would get in contact with my loan officer and get things done, and as always, he followed through with his promise above expectations. He was more patient during this process than I could have ever asked for.

Flash forward to a few months later and I am settled into my new home. I highly recommend Danny for any real estate needs -- he gets the job done and goes above and beyond for his clients.”

Love & Appreciation is in the Air!

The sunrise has been breathtaking in the early morning hours recently. During my morning walks, I look to the sky in awe at the amazing colors. The days are getting longer and we get to enjoy the sunshine for a few extra minutes each day.

Love is in the air and I want to list what I truly love about my profession as a Realtor since 1983:

I love to put a smile on my clients’ faces. And I know I couldn’t do what I love without my team of fellow Realtors, title companies, bankers, engineers, and contractors. Together, we get the job done and I appreciate every one of my team members.

I am looking forward to the future.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

As Christmas approaches and this year end comes to an end, I want to take an opportunity to extend my best wishes for a safe Christmas & a happy New Year to all of my friends, family, and clients.

As we approach the end of the year, I am reminded of all the people in my life that I am thankful for, and I am reminded that I am blessed every day. In a twinkle of an eye, this year has sped by. Many good deeds have been done and there are many more to accomplish.

I hope that the coming year will be a year when members in our community more often extend a helping hand to their neighbors, coworkers, family, friends, and strangers in need.

It's a real pleasure to say "thank you" to everyone in my life who has supported me, encouraged me, laughed with me, and loved life alongside me this past year. This is the time for lots of holiday cheer, the time for seeing old friends, the time for making new ones, and the time for enjoying the company of our families!

'Tis the season to enjoy life! I wish everyone a merry Christmas and a joyous New Year, full of happiness and success!

Welcome Fall!

It is that time of the year... when thoughts of the holidays slowly drift upon us, as another fast-paced year soon comes to an end.

This year has brought many successes for me & my profession, and I know even more accomplishments are just around the corner!

The weather is changing in the Ozarks – mornings and evenings are filled with beautiful skies and a bit of a chill in the air. Fall is finally here and winter is on its way close behind. I ask my friends & my readers to enjoy every day as if it were your last.

Preparing for Bridge Bash

Here I am again, enjoying my coffee on the deck before daylight in early August. The weather is awesome – nice & cool – especially for the summer! The local real estate market is very good and so far, it’s another record-breaking year.

My thoughts turn from business to something that is very near & dear to my heart: giving my time to help coordinate the annual Bridge Bash event. Bridge Bash is an event put on by the Food Bank of North Central Arkansas in Cotter, Arkansas every year. The event is meant to raise awareness to folks in our area who don’t have enough to eat, many of which are children. I feel driven to volunteer my time to help this worthy cause.

Our local food bank is amazing because of the selfless volunteers who give so much to help others. Please come out to participate in Bridge Bash this year at Big Spring Park in Cotter on September 23rd from 10am until 7pm. We will be glad to see the wonderful people who attend & help us to achieve our goal of providing 500,000 meals to those in need.

Learn more about Bridge Bash 2017 by clicking here.

Here are some photos from Bridge Bash 2016, plus some beautiful photos of the Ozarks during the fall season.

As I sit, sipping my coffee on my back deck, gazing across the fog-covered terrain, I reflect back over this year and feel a smile coming on. Our rainfall at times was epic. The beauty of nature was both violent and picturesque. Flooded rivers scraped mud and branches from the shoreline, leaving barren ground behind when the swell subsided.

But life is good and we are moving on. Our community in this wonderful area came together to help one another in our times of need, when nature fought against us. Through the tough times, we hold tight and we rebuild stronger than before.

I hope everyone enjoys their summer and the beautiful excitement that the Ozarks bring.

Spring Brings New Beginnings

Springtime is about new beginnings... for people, for nature, for everything in-between. Even though it is officially spring, the indecisive Arkansas weather has allowed me to see frost on the rooftops in the morning while still enjoying a warm breeze in the afternoon. It is always a beautiful morning here in Mountain Home.

The dogwoods are in bloom, the grass is turning green (recovering from the brown tint it had just days before), and the birds are singing a happy tune. They scurry about, searching for seeds falling from the newly-opened blooms in the garden. Spring in the Ozarks is beautiful, alive, and bustling with activity - my favorite time of the year.
