Working With A Great Crye-Leike Realtor Inspires Sonny Victory To Become A Crye-Leike Realtor

Benton, AR., – After 37 years of working for several different radio stations in various roles, Sonny Victory decided he wanted to jumpstart a new career as a Realtor.


Sonny was first motivated to pursue a career in the real estate industry after being inspired by a great real estate agent that helped him sell a house and find his perfect dream home. He recently joined Crye-Leike in the company’s Benton, Arkansas branch office.


“I decided to join Crye-Leike due to the wonderful experience I had previously working with a Crye-Leike Realtor named Donna Ibbotson who helped me achieve all of my real estate goals,” said Sonny. “She was a true professional and has spent the last few years convincing me that working in the real estate profession would be the perfect fit for me. I have always loved helping people and my community and being able to help someone find their dream home is just another way of giving back.”


Sonny is a licensed Realtor in Arkansas assisting buyers and sellers in and around Benton and Bryant counties and the Little Rock metro area. He is a member of the Benton/Bryant Realtors Association, the Arkansas Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors.


Prior to joining Crye-Leike, Sonny worked for several local radio stations. He started his career in the radio industry at the age of 17 working for the original KLAZ in 1975. Sonny worked for Clear Channel Communications for 13 years on air as a radio program host for stations including 105.1 The Wolf, COOL 95, and Mix 94.9. He most recently served as the Operations Manager for Crain Media working with stations including 106.3 The River, Big Rock 93.3, Khits 96.5, Freshtalk 96.5 and 93.3 The Source.


“Over the last 37 years working in radio, I have learned that I am a people person who loves meeting new friends and helping put a smile on someone’s face.” said Sonny. “As a Realtor, I’m hoping to help many people become happy home buyers and sellers and have a great real estate experience like I did in finding and purchasing my dream home a few years ago.”


Sonny adds, “Selling real estate and finding that perfect home for my client is like Christmas morning. The smiles, the looks of wonder and the true joy should be a part of each real estate experience when a client is working with a Realtor like me who will ensure this kind of service and satisfaction.”


Sonny lives in Salem, Arkansas with his wife Joy. When he isn’t busy assisting clients, Sonny enjoys fishing and giving back to his community. In 2012, he helped raise over $100,000 for the MS Society, and he was previously honored for helping to send 68 tractor-trailer trucks filled with food and supplies from Arkansas to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
