🌟 Celebrating the Radiance of Missy Caulk 🌟


From our first encounter in the Rain, to countless real estate events and late-night chats both in my personal home and in our hotel rooms across the country together, Missy Caulk has been more than a colleague to me—she's a cherished friend and an irreplaceable mentor. Her wit, wisdom, and unwavering dedication to her family, friends and clients have not only inspired me but, many within our community. I have learned more from Missy than from any other single individual in this business.

Missy faced head-on, a journey through immense personal losses with her incredible resilience and strength, qualities that make her the remarkable woman we all adore. She has lost a son, her husband and a granddaughter - all within a couple of years of one another. She is THE strongest woman I have ever known - such an inspiration to every person who knows her.


*With Brad Andersohn, Jon Washburn, Kerrie La Guardia, among others (Sorry, can't tag everyone).

Imagine the absolute honor I felt when she asked if she could name her real estate company the name of my company! She was one savvy real estate broker!

Today, I share with a heavy heart that Missy is facing an unimaginable challenge with incurable, stage-4 metastatic cancer. As she prepares for her journey ahead, her family requests privacy, which we wholeheartedly respect.

To all who have been touched by her vibrant spirit, let us unite in prayer or send the strongest of positive vibes to Missy, Christa and their entire family during this profoundly challenging time. 🙏


With Liz and Bill Spear, Missy Caulk, Tammy Lankford, Cindy Jones, Jason Crouch, Thom Abbott, Loreena and Michael Yeo,among other wonderful AR members.

Missy, your fight is not unseen, and your spirit is as indomitable as ever. Know that my love and support are with you, always. Here’s the biggest virtual hug to you, my forever friend. ❤️

Aww, she sounds like such an amazing person and I am saddened that I didn't get to know her in the Rain.  I will certainly be keeping her in my prayers.

Bless you for keeping her in your prayers, Brian England. If she had been active when you were here, I'm certain that you two would have hit it off.

Debe Maxwell, CRS when I saw that on Facebook the other day, my heart felt sad.

I did not know Missy, yet I knew of her. My prayers are with her and her family.

Same, Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist! In fact, it took me a good hour before I could respond to Christa. It is such gut-wrenching news. I adore that family and can't imagine what those children are going through. Missy is an AMAZING mom.

I am so sorry to hear this, Debe.  Missy is a name we old-timers from AR know well.  I'll add my prayers to the heap to help her through this trial, knowing full-well that she'll come through in typical Missy style.

Oh yes, she was front and center for a very long time here in the Rain. She used to speak around the country as well - everyone loves her! Thank you for your prayers, Alan May.

What a great post, Debe Maxwell, CRS!! Missy was like a second mom to me, she was always there for me when I needed a friend or someone to bounce ideas off. Many great trips and events together!! I miss her and those days very much!! I will be praying 🙏 and sending strength and love to the entire Caulk family. It’s a new journey for their family and I’m standing by her side all the way!!!!

Oh my gosh - we had SO much fun together, soaking in everything technology we possibly could, Brad! You and Missy always just MADE my trips so very special. I cannot imagine what Christa, Alyssa, Matthew & Andrew are going through right now. I'm waiting on the announcement for her Celebration of Life. Perhaps we can get the crew together and all fly to Ann Arbor?

Sending lots of prayers to Missy and her family for the challenges now and ahead. There are no words...
