Real Estate Agent - RE/MAX Real Estate Centre
The unemployment rate in Arkansas fell, so the latest figures show, to 4.5% in July, well below the national average of 5.7%. These figures are from the Department of Workforce Services. Arkansas has about 21,000 more people working that it had a year ago. This is great news for Arkansas!! Keep i...
I hate to make comments about my Realtor family, but recently I've witnessed a couple of incidents which cause me to feel sick. I guess I'm just different. I was raised with a conscience, and I like to sleep at night. Being a real estate agent isn't always about money. It's about providing a serv...
Just a reminder that you really need to keep a termite contract on your home or business. I know that it costs money initially and to renew it annually costs money, but it is so important, as you have to have one at closing, anyway, when you sell your property. With a current contract, the termit...
A client from out of state who is moving to Jonesboro asked The Marcom Team about the issue of Craighead County being a "dry" county. It is pretty confusing. Legally speaking, we are a dry county. For years we only had a couple of Country Clubs where alcohol was served, and absolutely no liquor ...

Jonesboro’s Nettleton High School Softball Team, the Nettleton Lady Raiders, accomplished their unltimate goal in winning the class 5A title, going with the premise “one base at a time” to defeat Malvern in Fayetteville on Friday. Shelby Wise was named the game’s most valuable player. She allowe...
Okay, the issue of the politically incorrect Arkansas State mascot has been solved. The ASU Indians are now THE ASU RED WOLVES. Apparently Red Wolves actually once roamed our state but are now extinct. So ASU is bringing them back to life. Hopefully our athletic teams will do the Red Wolves justi...
Gosh I haven't been on here in a long time. The Marcom Team added two new members in February, which has been a tremendous plus for us, but it has been alot of work for me! Since I do most of the computer work for our Team, I've been adjusting our websites and ads to include our new team members....
With a new mall, new restaurants, and crime up in the big cities around us, Jonesboro has been busy during the holiday season. Instead of driving to the cities, the citizens of northeast Arkansas and Southeast Missouri came to Jonesboro to do their shopping and eating. Traffic has been heavy for...
