Don Hodges is the Owner and Broker Associate for Arkhoma Realty LLC. He currently works primarily as a Buyer's Agent for individuals looking to purchase property in Rogers County, OK. Following is some background information about him.
"My wife, Ruth, and I live just outside Claremore, OK in Rogers County, Northeast Oklahoma. I have lived all over the world and have not found a place I'd rather call 'home' than right here in the Ozark foothills of Northeast Oklahoma. Some of the deciding factors were the changing seasons, the abundant wildlife and most of all the friendly people. It's a great place for people of all ages to experience nature up close and personal. I find ample subjects upon which to 'focus' my photography hobby. Many of the pictures you will see on this site were taken within walking distance from my previous home in Flint Ridge. This area of NW Arkansas/NE Oklahoma is also a great area to enjoy day trips, either on a motorcycle or by car."
Don's background is quite varied. He has lived in Texas, California, Florida, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Having now lived in Oklahoma the longest (Tahlequah, Jenks, Flint Ridge and now Claremore), he considers himself a true "Okie." He has 4 children and 8 grandchildren.
He holds a Bachelor of Science degree with an Education major and Business minor from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, OK. He has held a number of middle management positions in large and medium size companies and even spent a few years as a Database Administrator for an international non-profit organization. Don has been in real estate for several years beginning in 1993 in Jenks, Oklahoma. He has renovated and sold homes, owned rental properties, improved and sold building lots and also was a Loan Originator so he brings quite a variety of real estate experiences to his real estate practice.
"In my past business experiences, one motivation has remained constant...helping people. Although my degree is in education and I never taught in a classroom situation, I find myself coaching, teaching and serving people in every role I undertake. My life has been very rewarding in that regard!"
"My real estate practice is not centered around me. It's all about the customer. Whether we are experiencing a 'Seller´s Market' or a 'Buyer´s Market', my goal is always the same: to provide exceptional real estate service above and beyond the norm. In doing so, I aim to earn my customer's long term trust, and of course their real estate referrals. I am committed to customer satisfaction and will always put my customer's interests and needs above my own. Because of this attitude, most of my business is now derived from referrals and past customers."
"Please don´t hesitate to ask me about the services my company provides. We truly are here to serve your real estate needs."
When Don is not wearing his "real estate hat" you can often find him wearing his motorcycle helmet or behind a camera capturing the beauty of Northeast Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
