My name is Kimberly, I am a Realtor with Exit Pro Realty in Rogers, Arkansas and thought I would share a story.
My husband Josh, told me about a gentleman he worked for, he said this “older” man had come from New York City and had worked on WallStreet. My husband thought to himself, now why would someone move from New York City to a small area like Northwest Arkansas where there is not much hustle & bustle. At least compared to his idea of New York.
My husband asked the older mans’ friend, that was visiting him, what made him decide to move to Northwest Arkansas? The man said,” how old do you think he is?” Victor said ….I don’t know, trying to be kind he said 70ish (he acutally thought 80ish) the man said, “he is 56 and woke up one morning and simply decided to make a change in his life for the better!” He said his friend researched one of the best places to live was actually Northwest Arkansas, so he and his wife decided to move here and take better care of themselves! So I guess a very good reason to move to Northwest Arkansas is for your health and sanity!
New comers often find themselves stepping up a level or two in the housing department. From historic and traditional neighborhoods to brand-new communities, moderately priced to luxurious, odds are you’ll find the home you want for less.

Currently in Bentonville there are 64 luxury homes on the market, Fayetteville has 97 and Springdale and Rogers have 147 luxury homes on the market.
The average sale price of a home in Bentonville and Fayetteville is about $165,000 with approximately 2000 square feet more or less. The average sale price of a home in Springdale and Rogers is about $140,000 with approximately $1650 square feet more or less.
Canoeing on the Buffalo River is a favorite past time for natives and guests of Northwest Arkansas! Among Rivers there are beautiful mountains and State Parks. Golfing is huge in Northwest Arkasas there are so many golf courses and a few are part of subdivisions so you can walk to the club and take in a few rounds of golf!
