I, Larry Brinkley from Danville, Illinois, Moved to Farmington Hills, Michigan in March 1987. Worked at my Aunt’s Commercial Real Estate office answering phones and delivering packages. Mildred Diedrich was one of the first women to start selling Real Estate in the Metro Detroit area. She went to join the “Board of Realtors” and they told her “No” because she was a woman. She eventually helped develop Southfield, Michigan. I became licensed in July 1987, I then Joined Coldwell Banker in West Bloomfield, Michigan, during their “Expect the Best” campaign.
I eventually found that at that time my calling was in Landscaping. I started Landscaping in 1988 for my Aunt, when she moved a house onto a vacant lot, then later joined English Gardens in West Bloomfield. Landscaped there for 4 years, then took a job at Chickasaw Country Club in Memphis. Was recruited by Michael Hatcher in 1996 and moved to Heber Springs Arkansas in 1997 and started Top Properties of Heber Springs.
The oil and gas industry took my employees in 2006, and I got back into Real Estate. Joined United Country Quitman, Arkansas, then joined Crye*Leike Greers Ferry, then Crye*Leike Heber Springs where I was able to work with my past landscaping clients, and my real estate business really took off In 2007 I was #24 in Cleburne County, in 2008, I was #4. Then I joined Re/Max Heber Springs, then Finally joined Keller Williams. On average every real estate agent will move their license 5.7 times through their career.
Lets go back to 2006…a buyer came to the United Country office, I showed them 5 properties, then they found a fsbo by themselves, since they were headed back to Virginia, they asked me to represent them through the closing. The seller was the now “Carolyn Brinkley” strange how life goes.
Carolyn had moved to Austin Texas and began a career in Real Estate in 2008 with Keller Williams, The mother ship. She moved back to Arkansas in 2009. I joined Keller Williams in 2010. We became Partners in 2011 and married in 2014.
Together we have sold over 25 million. Ask me more…For “duty of loyalty” call Larry today 5012067445 Updated June 26, 2017 Conway Arkansas Real Estate For Sale not zillow trulia
