    BHGRE Journey Places Community First              By Priscilla Willis, Realtor®


    We are incredibly fortunate to live in Northwest Arkansas, which has recently been included in numerous “Best Places to Live” lists. This year, the Fayetteville/NWA Metro area is #4 on the U.S. News 25 Best Places to Live in the U.S. in 2021-2022, before Austin, Texas (#5), Colorado Springs (#6), and Naples, Florida (#7).

    We know what a special place Northwest Arkansas is and are incredibly happy that others are recognizing it, too. Attributes used to determine the “Best Places to Live” list include the best combination of jobs, desirability, cost of living, and quality of life, which considers diversity as well as a sense of community and inclusiveness.

    During times of hardship, uncertainty, and fear, community is more important than ever. We rely on those around us for solidarity, support, guidance, information, and empathy.

    Even with quarantining and social distancing to prevent the spread of Covid-19, we are seeing some positive and unexpected societal results, including widespread outpourings of charity, solidarity, and empathy for others. Surprisingly, we might even be part of a grassroots redefinition of what “community” means in the 21st century.

    Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Journey places our community in the highest regard. After all, we are all locals. This is OUR community. We live, play, work, and worship in Northwest Arkansas. Our agents contribute their time and expertise to many organizations and events, including:

    Bentonville Half Marathon – Volunteer First Aid and Water Station Tent

    Women in Diversity - BHGRE supports with training and scholarships

    Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Journey’s goal is to be an ambassador and positively affect the communities surrounding us. Thank you for allowing us to be your neighbor and community member.
