BEAVER LAKE – ROGERS, AR., – Recognized as one of the finest striped bass fisheries in the country, Beaver Lake has been attracting fishing enthusiasts from all over the U.S. for decades. The lure of the Rogers lake resort area has netted another big fish of sorts. Crye-Leike, REALTORS recently purchased a small retail center on Highway 12 East in Rogers as its new Beaver Lake location.


“Moving into our new Beaver Lake Office has been like a breath of fresh air,” said Chuck Gay, Crye-Leike’s newly named Beaver Lake Managing Broker. “The lake community is very special and even through the recession, demand for lake homes and real estate sales have remained fairly stable.”


Chuck Gay and six other associates, all previously affiliated with Harris McHaney Realtors, have come onboard to make up the new Beaver Lake team. They’ve all been specializing in lake property sales for many years. Chuck considers Crye-Leike’s recent expansion and acquisition as a clear indication of a market and region on the upswing.


“We have many out of state buyers looking for second homes around the lake,” said Chuck. “The only problem we are experiencing is a shortage of lake homes to sell. This of course creates a great opportunity for sellers, as most of the lake homes do not remain on the market for a long period of time.”


Beaver Lake now represents Crye-Leike’s 8th company owned sales center in Northwest Arkansas. Cofounder and CEO Harold Crye looks to a bright future for real estate sales in the area based on a strong economic engine he sees primarily fueled by Wal-Mart, Tyson Foods, J.B. Hunt Trucking and the University of Arkansas.


“The real estate market is healthy, sales and new construction are picking up,” said Crye. “We’ve seen phenomenal growth and sales that have exceeded our expectations since opening our first offices in the region just three years ago.”


With its recent Beaver Lake addition – Crye predicts the company is on track to finish 2010 as the largest real estate firm in Northwest Arkansas based on both the number of homes sold and gross sales volume.


“Myself and the sales associates joining me are Beaver Lake Specialists,” said Chuck. “We’ve all worked at the lake for many years and have worked together like a family for a long time. We have Harold Crye and his team to thank for keeping our family together and giving us a new home at Beaver Lake.”
