Red Carpet Real Estate is merging with Carol Jones Realtors to become CJR Red Carpet.

Both Red Carpet and CJR have long-standing reputations for providing clients in the real estate market with the highest level of customer service, expertise and resources. With the merger, CJR will have more than 210 associates available to help clients buy and sell their properties and will expand its position as the market leader in southern Missouri.

Carol Jones Realtors is owned by Homeservices of America, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate. Meanwhile, Red Carpet has served Newton and McDonald counties since 1968, and has 10 sales associates located in Neosho.

Steve Kenny, president of Red Carpet, will stay with the firm as director of recruiting, training, and education.

“We are very proud to be a part of HomeServices of America and Carol Jones Realtors,” noted Kenny. “We are joining an organization with the highest standards of service and integrity, making this a win-win for our clients and associates.”

“Red Carpet Real Estate is a respected company with long-term ties to its community,” said Ron Peltier, chairman and CEO of HomeServices. “This transaction reinforces our commitment to expanding CJR’s footprint to better serve the real estate needs of new and existing clients throughout southern Missouri.”

“Red Carpet shares our core values of integrity, customer service and community involvement,” added Shaun Duggins, president of Carol Jones. “We are confident this new relationship will bring a continued level of exceptional service for buyers and sellers in Newton and McDonald counties.”

Carol Jones, REALTORS® was founded in 1983 and joined the HomeServices network in 1998. Red Carpet has been in the same location for 44 years and will remain at 1010 W. Harmony St. Neosho, MO 64850. For more information visit
