Crye-Leike Acquires Leading Real Estate Office in Maumelle, Ark.

Little Rock, Ark. –  One of Little Rock’s leading real estate companies in Maumelle has joined Crye-Leike, Realtors, the nation’s 10th largest real estate company.

The announcement was made by Chief Executive Officer Harold E. Crye, who obtained managing broker Mary Peyton to manage a Crye-Leike office in Maumelle, the company’s 10th branch office in Arkansas and its fourth office in Pulaski County.

Crye says that this new Crye-Leike office in Maumelle is one of the key components to the company’s strategy to establish market penetration in the entire Central Arkansas real estate market.

“Having an office in Maumelle will strengthen our presence in the markets of transferees and executives,” says Crye.

Peyton became affiliated with the Century 21 franchise system in 1990. “When my franchise agreement came up for renewal, I didn’t want to renew my real estate franchise with Century 21,” says Peyton. “We were looking for an organization to back our commitment to quality service and considered Crye-Leike to be our best option.”.
