Sequoyah area send me an email at Nicky@NickyDou.com and tell me what your price range is and I will send you emails when homes come available here! Mt.

If you see flames in Fayetteville - don't fret... Controlled burn at Park West will initiate wet prairie restoration activities! Kudos, Tracy Hoskins of Paradigm Development! - 02/22/09 12:39 PM
Tracy Hoskins' 140-acre Park West property is located on the north side of I-540 off of HWY 112 in Fayetteville, AR. Park West has been identified by the Green Infrastructure Planning Group as a remnant wet prairie. Hoskins has agreed to conduct wet prairie restoration activities on the property and has contracted Bill McKinney's Wildland, Inc. to conduct a controlled burn on Park West. This will increase native plant species. Fire is the primary vegetation management tool for restoring and maintaining grassland habitat. Hoskins prescribed burn at Park West to initiate wet prairie restoration activities. This should aid in meeting the objectives of the Green Infrastructure Planning Group (0 comments)
Using technology in Real Estate... (Just attended a Realtor.com Technology class/seminar) - 02/18/09 08:05 AM
So I attended a Realtor.com class yesterday that was held at the Cosmopolitan hotel in downtown Fayetteville. I was thrilled by how many Realtors in Northwest Arkansas attended! Realtor.com is a great website and does offer some great packages. I had never had any sort of "enhanced listings" until I joined Century 21 Exclamation Realty last November. Now all of my listings are "Enhanced Listings" which means I am maximizing the on-line presence of my listings (all of my listings) on the most popular real estate website on the Internet. This includes 25 JUMBO photos, full motion video (when applicable), headlines and property descriptions (3 comments)
What would Sam have done? Wal-Mart's layoffs in my hometown - Bentonville, Arkansas... - 02/11/09 10:09 PM
I can not believe my ears yesterday and today as Wal-Mart announced its layoff of over 700 employees in Northwest Arkansas. This is also effects the vendor community that deals with Pharmaceutical and Apparal which happens to be a couple of my dearest and closest friends. I live in ultimately - one of the best places in the world - Northwest Arkansas... "Home of Wal-Mart" and as Wal-Mart has brought much of the growth and wealth to our area - now it is hard to swallow that they will make an impact like this on so many families... I hate to hear (1 comments)

Grumpy Realtors... Change your attitude OR Please Get out of the business! - 02/08/09 10:04 AM
Anyone that knows me... Knows that I am a very POSITIVE and fun person - and I love what I do and I am good at it. What I don't love... IS other people in my profession that are GRUMPY, negative and condescending... Which unfortunately I have ran into a LOT lately and honestly I am sick of it. I do not complain about many things... But my hope out of this blog post is to help those that might be part of this group of GRUMPY REALTORS to figure out that it is very irritating to other Realtors that are not... (14 comments)

WOW - what a week. I FINALLY got an offer for one of my sellers that they accepted - their home has been on the market for A VERY LONG time - (not listed with me for all of that time :) ) But NOW - we have put in a couple of "GOOD" offers for homes and it seems that every home they want goes under contract like just before we put in an offer OR the last two offers were on bank owned properties and the bank wont look at the offer b/c they have a contingency of "CLOSING (10 comments)
