Brenda Goines, CRS, GRI


(501) 681-4430

I have been a full-time Realtor since 1986. I keep current on the ever-changing real estate industry by being active in our local Realtor board and by attending educational seminars and courses. I am affectionately (I hope) called “Bulldog” among the other Realtors. This is because I am known to work hard at getting even the most difficult transactions closed. Yes, most of the time “Where there is a will, there is a way.” On a personal note, I have been married since 1967, have 2 sons and 4 wonderful grandchildren. I attend First Baptist Church and am a member of the local, State and national Realtor Associations, the Benton Chamber of Commerce, and the Saline Home Builders Association. If you are thinking of buying or selling or if there is any way I can assist you with your real estate needs, I would really appreciate you contacting me.

Mike Duke

Having lived all but the first five years of my life in Saline County, and having served as a Realtor and developer for over 20 years, I have been able to build many relationships which have allowed me to sell and close even the toughest real estate transactions. My primary areas of interest in the real estate industry have been in dealing with commercial real estate sales and leases and in the development of residential subdivisions. I like to think creatively and “out of the box” for clients and I welcome the challenge. I love this community and have enjoyed serving at my church and with many of our local nonprofits, as well as contributing my leadership efforts to the economic development of Saline County. I have been married to my Stephanie since 1979 and I have two married children and two grandchildren.

Joanne Theiss

Executive Broker

(870) 342-9332

Helping my community grow with my real estate knowledge has been such a blessing during the last sixteen years of my life. I have enjoyed meeting new clients and helping old friends make one of the biggest decisions of their lives by walking them through the process, trying to make sure each transaction goes as smooth and stress-free as possible. Before moving my license to Old South Realty, I served as a Principle Broker in Grant County. I am currently serving as the Executive Broker of Old South Realty, and appreciate the opportunity to work with this group of experienced agents, and plan to continue to learn from their knowledge. I have also served on the Benton Bryant Board of Directors for several years which helped me learn even more about the Saline County community. When I’m not working, my greatest joy is to spend time with my family. While living in Grant County and attending Harmony Baptist Church, my husband and I have been married for 31 years, with a daughter and two sons, a 2 year old granddaughter and 3 month old grandson. The only thing that could make it any better would be more grandchildren! I know you have many agents to choose from. But whether buying or selling, I will work hard for you, because I appreciate repeat customers and referrals. I look forward to helping you any way I can!
I enjoy helping old friends and new friends experience the joy of buying a new home stress free.
