Saying Goodbye To Hailey Owens I've lived in Springfield Missouri since the early 1980's and last week a young girl named Hailey Owens was abducted, killed and found within a short time.   I remember the amber alert going off on my cell phone around 7:00 PM as I was leaving my office and thinking, oh no!  Another child has gone missing. Little did I know at that time she had been missing for several hours. Over the past week, the entire city has come together to pay tribute to this wonderful little girl.  Over 10,000 met on Saturday for a candlelight vigil.  On Sunday, over 1600 motorcycles merged on Springfield for a ride to raise money for Hailey. Today she is being laid to rest.  Hopefully, her killer will be swiftly brought to justice.  Nothing will bring Hailey back, but families w...

Many times people ask who is the best Realtor in Springfield MO. and naturally I tell them "I am".  What really defines "the best".  Is it hair, dress, car or how many times they have seen your sign?  Often I hear "well I have seen a lot of those signs  and they drive a nice car so they must be good".  In my opinion this could not be farther from the truth.  So what defines "the best" Realtor?  If I had to sum it up into one word it would be "Passion".  If you have passion for something everything else will fall into place.  I remember when I was just out of college I was asking my boss "how do I get where your at?".  Climbing the corporate latter, being successful and making a good living.  He told me those very words, "Do what you have passion for and everything else will fall into pl...

Real Estate in 2014 as Seen by Dakota Carson Realty Group is going to be great.  As December departs and brings a close to 2013, many are asking about the real estate market in the new year. We at Dakota Carson Realty Group do much research on both the buying and selling side of this industry so we are well prepared and knowledgeable for our clients. Interested rates throughout 2013 were exceptionally low but we feel this is going to be a thing of the past and will be on the rise by summer. This in part is due by the Federal Reserve's 85 billion bond buying program that has kept rates low and in some cases, historic lows. The Central Bank will start tapering it's purchases in January, which leads many experts to believe, will cause rates to be on the rise. So how is real estate looking ...
