Gaynell Belloni/The Weekly Vista Free food + live music = fun in the sun at the Crye-Leike Realtors grand opening Friday, May 15. Chris and Sally Rhodes, from left, soon will be moving to Bella Vista from Anderson, Mo. Their daughters, Raegan, 1, and Brooke, 3, were thirsty from dancing. An estimated 600 visitors toured the new building on Bella Vista Way, just north of the Walgreen's, Office Administrator Kathryn Weldon said.

Of late there have been few sunny days in Northwest Arkansas. Friday was the exception with Crye-Leike Realtors taking advantage of the break in the gloomy weather to hold their grand opening celebrate and ribbon cutting at the Bella Vista Branch office. Between 600 to 700 were on hand during the afternoon and early evening event to enjoy food, music and tours of the newest Crye-Leike office in the region. Managing Broker Dave Mishler and most of the 23 agents in the office took part in hosting the event.


Hot dogs, hamburgers plus all the trimming were served up throughout the grand opening, which marks the eighth office to be opened in the Northwest Region by the company. Dan and Teri Heins along with Justin Hamby played an assortment of jazz tunes to help keep the crowd tapping their toes while they enjoyed the food and friendship at the gathering.


The office will serve primarily the Bella Vista community but will also have listings and serve clients outside the area in all of northwest Arkansas as needed.


The new office is located at 3463 Bella Vista Way, just north of Walgreens, and offers a view of a portion of the Bella Vista Lake trail. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at 2 p.m., with members of the Bentonville/Bella Vista Chamber of Commerce on hand along with several dozen guests from the community and former clients of the office.
