Relocating for Walmart? All about Bentonville Arkansas including the best Real Estate search in NWA!

Welcome to my blog – I am Nicky Dou and I am a Sr. VP and Executive Broker at Century 21 Exclamation Realty in Northwest Arkansas. I have been in the real estate business for 10 years and have worked for some wonderful companies including owning and operating a small boutique Real Estate company for 2 years. In a nutshell – I love what I do. I have helped many people relocate to Northwest Arkansas from so many different areas and have gained some wonderful friendships along the way. I am a lifelong resident of Northwest Arkansas and currently reside in Bentonville – but the areas I work also include Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers and the Beaver Lake area (sometimes Bella Vista)… You can read more about me here.  I have been the #1 Century 21 Agent in Arkansas for 2 years straight as well as ranking in the top 1% of ALL Realtors in Northwest Arkansas. Enough about me – I want to hear more about YOU! Email me to begin the process!

I wanted to write this BLOG post for those of you moving to or from Northwest Arkansas including (but not limited to) those transferring for Walmart or a Vendor of Walmart. I have assisted many families relocation process that work (directly or indirectly) for Walmart. Most of the time you are “assigned a Realtor” and I will probably not be the one they “assign to you”. However you do have other options – most of the families I have worked with have either been referred to me or found me online way before they were “assigned their Realtor”. I am certified with most all of the relocation companies out there including CARTUS & SIRVA and all you need to do is to let your relocation director know that you would like to work with me. If they need any additional information they can call me. I have found that many people do not know that they have this choice.

 

All about Bentonville, Arkansas  (for even more info. about Bentonville as well as other cities in NWA click on the link)

Rich in history, blessed with stunning scenery, and offering wonderful opportunities for outdoor sports and recreation, Bentonville is a city on the move. Part of the vibrant Northwest Arkansas region that ranks among the fastest-growing in the US, this charming city of almost 30,000 draws deeply from its pioneer roots and Ozark heritage. Family-friendly neighborhoods and its intimate historic Downtown reflect the city’s small-town and rural community values, yet Bentonville welcomes newcomers and supports business, and is full of excitement about the future. 

Location 

Bentonville is Benton County in the Ozark Mountains, in Northwest Arkansas. It is located at an elevation of 1300 feet in the gently rolling wooded hills and deep valleys of the Ozark Mountains. Bentonville is 20 miles from Fayetteville, 77 miles from Springfield, MO, and 96 miles from Tulsa, OK. 

Interesting Facts/Historic Buildings and Places 

In 1836 Benton County was established as the first county in the state of Arkansas, with Bentonville as County Seat. Through the intervening decades, many of them tumultuous, Bentonville has maintained its historic character and still boasts 72 historic buildings and homes within its city limits, including the well-known Peel House Mansion and Historical Gardens. 

The Peel Mansion was built with meticulous care in 1875, using the best local materials and craftsmen. With his wife Mary, Colonel Samuel West Peel, a pioneer businessman, Indian agent and Confederate soldier who became the first native-born Congressman from Arkansas, raised their nine children on the farm and apple orchard surrounding the house. A splendid example of an Italianate mansion, it has been beautifully restored and furnished with extraordinary period furniture and embellishments to create an authentic early Victorian ambience. 

In addition to its historic and scenic charms, Bentonville has become famous as the home of the founders of Wal-Mart and the site of their first retail outlet. The original Wal-Mart still stands in Bentonville’s town square, serving as a visitors’ center to illustrate and remember Wal-Mart’s history, its rural roots, and the philosophy of its founders, who exemplified the small-town virtues of frugality, hard work, and dedication. The front of the premises recall an old-time “five and dime” store, while the rooms in back form a kind of museum housing relics and mementoes marking the stupendous success of the Walton family and their company.  

Scheduled to open 11/11/11 the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville will be one of the foremost art museums in the United States. Set in gorgeous Arkansas woodland, the stunningly designed Museum is the brainchild of Alice Walton of Wal-Mart fame. When completed most of the 25,000 square feet of gallery space will house masterworks of American art from the colonial period to the present day. The Museum will also feature a 250-seat indoor auditorium, areas for outdoor concerts and public events, sculpture gardens and walking trails, and exhibits of Native American art as well as the work of regional artists and special collections from national art institutions.
