About Steve

steveHello, my name is Steve Atwell, Owner & Broker of Buyer’s First Realty in Northwest Arkansas and I would like to tell you a little about myself. I have been an independent businessman since I was a youngster. I delivered the news paper for several years either walking or riding my bike. I cleaned yards in the summer and shoveled snow in the winter. I even did baby sitting .  At age 21  became an independent distributor for a major dairy in New Mexico for 20+ years, during which time I also opened a full service Real Estate Brokerage and ran a construction company building energy efficient  custom homes.
In 1997, my wife and I, along with our Boxer, moved to Northwest Arkansas. Right after beginning my real estate business here, I was diagnosed with end-stage liver disease. It took me 2.5 years to get on the transplant list, and in that time I worked my business moderately till I got my transplant  on  4/24/2004. I just had my 12th anniversary stronger than ever to serve you.

I specialize in Buyer’s Agency, representing you, the Buyer, looking out for your best interests from first contact, to closing and beyond. I do take some listings when asked to, but I do not solicit listings.
My experience in real estate covers residential, commercial, land, and overseeing new construction. My credentials include the designations, Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®) GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute) and an ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative). I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, and the Northwest Arkansas Board of Realtors.

I invite you to contact me with any questions you may have about Real Estate. I do answer my phone and return calls

Thank you for visiting,

Steve Atwell, Buyer’s First Realty of Northwest Arkansas
