Doug Penrose View My Listings >>
Having grown up as an Army "brat," and serving in the Army myself from 1967 - 1970, moving around was in my blood. My wife Sharon and I left the Chicago suburbs in 1972 and moved to Central Illinois, then Southeastern Idaho and finally Southern California before coming to Mountain Home six years ago. The hardest part about coming to Arkansas was leaving our son and his wife in California, but we haven't regretted it even once.
We came to Baxter county and bought the Shady Grove Store and ran it for almost three years. That is how we got to know the wonderful people who populate this area. What a way to make new friends, run a little country store. I liked it, but I just couldn't sit still, so I started working construction remodeling and/or building homes. My knowledge of homes was a perfect fit for Real Estate and my Customer Service experience goes right along with Southern Breeze Real Estate's goal to offer our clients the best service possible. I hope you will give me the chance to sell your home and/or find you a new one. Your satisifaction is my goal.
