Connie & Carl are the BEST! We had three different realtors over the last three years, but Connie & Carl took the initiative to contact us for a chance to sell our condo during the fall/winter. Figuring we had nothing to lose, we agreed to have them list it. They made a few suggestions for moving furniture and pictures, which they carried out for us since we weren’t in the area, and listed it at the price that had been asked previously, indicating that it was a fair price. Unlike the others we had had, they really put effort into promoting our place by holding open houses, bringing people in from other open houses they were having, talking to other realtors…basically they did their job and did it well! And they kept communicating with us all along the way. The result was that within 2 months, we had a contract on the condo…the first in three years…and closed less than a month later at close to the price we were asking. Throughout the entire process, everything went very smoothly, thanks to Connie and Carl. We highly recommend them to anyone who really wants their place sold!

It is with great pleasure that we recommend Carl and Connie Hornbuckle as your next real estate agents! We searched for a condo online for many months before finding “the one.” We didn’t know then how fortunate we were that the listing agents were The Hornbuckles. They responded immediately to our query and even met us on a Sunday afternoon to show the condo, where they presented us with a packet of information and a list of similar units. They are very professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and down to earth. Their desire to find the perfect home for you far exceeds their desire to make a sale. There was absolutely no pressure, and they made us feel like we were their only client. They answered phones calls, texts, and emails immediately. When our first offer and counter offer fell through, they were disappointed for US, not for themselves. They continued to stay in touch and kept looking for another condo. We had hard-to-fill requirements—a certain complex, the top floor, 3 bedrooms, a boat slip and, the biggest hurdle, a GARAGE! 

When circumstances with the listing changed the next month, they contacted us immediately about making another offer. We jumped at the chance; this time, sealing the deal. They took care of all the details, presenting us with a schedule of events and keeping us informed throughout the process. All we had to do was sit back and watch the magic happen. Their interaction with the sellers was no less impressive. Talk about going above and beyond—these are the agents you want working for you as a buyer OR a seller. Oh, did we mention that they even helped carry our belongings up 4 flights of stairs?!?! They presented us with a personalized gift for our new condo and graciously joined us for a celebratory dinner that evening. We have truly met new friends!

Carl and Connie Hornbuckle were referred to us by a friend who was also searching for a condo at Lake of the Ozarks. Our experience in working with them was excellent. We found them to be very knowledgeable regarding properties at the lake and what was going on at various complexes regarding special assessments. They were very friendly, punctual and offered expert advice in our search. We were shown several condo complexes to give us a better idea of what was available. Our comments to Carl then gave him a better idea of what we really wanted and he then zeroed in on those properties.

Connie is an expert in taking care of the required paperwork. She has an excellent eye for detail and we always felt that we were in good hands. We had every confidence that she had examined every detail of our rather complicated transaction with the abstract company.

Carl and Connie make a great team and we recommend them very highly. We would work with them again without hesitation.

Carl and Connie Hornbuckle made this by far the easiest and most enjoyable purchase that I've ever made through a realty firm.  This is my fourth acquisition of a Lake Ozark condo.   It just seemed like they always knew what would be my next question, and they would have the answer ready for me, or would research it and get right back to me.   As I look back on my experience it's now very obvious that they were helping me through a process, without in anyway trying to influence my decision, so that I could find the condo that I was searching for.  When I started out I thought I had all that figured out, but there were many details that I hadn't thought about, or didn't know about.  I had not owned, in several years, on the part of the Lake that I was interested in, and they didn't hide anything back from me in order to make a quick sale.  I learned new things such as areas with heavy boat traffic, heavy entertainment areas, and other things important to me.   Carl and Connie both know real estate very well, and they each have their areas of expertise, which makes for the perfect buying experience.  I'm certain that when the time comes to sell my unit I will look these folks up.  Thank you Carl and Connie.

Simply The Best!

My wife and I have been involved in twelve different real estate transactions in the last 30 years, including this recent purchase of our condo at the Lake of the Ozarks.  Without a doubt, Connie and Carl Hornbuckle are the hardest working agents we have ever worked with. We were very lucky to find them. Their fantastic responsiveness, honesty, energy, and attention to detail and have put them in a separate group among real estate agents.  I would not hesitate to use them again, and would recommend to anyone looking for a superior level of service to call them first.

In the past 5 years, my husband and I have sold 3 homes and purchased 2, in 3 different cities. We have dealt with 5 different agents.  Having dealt with multiple agents, we’ve had a wide range of home buying and selling experiences.  We are writing to express our pleasure with real estate agents, Carl & Connie Hornbuckle, who represented us in our recent purchase of a single family home in Camdenton, Mo.

Carl and Connie guided us through the entire process, from loan prequalification to searching for houses to making the offer and closing the deal. We credit them with a smooth, stress-free homebuying experience.  Carl and Connie were extremely patient and provided just the right amount of ongoing interaction during our year long search for the perfect home.  They were very understanding of our situation and really helped us work through our home choice.  Their knowledge of the Lake of the Ozarks area was invaluable in helping us narrow our final search to the Camdenton area.    To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with Carl and Connie and their expertise and we highly recommend them, especially to anyone who may not familiar with the Lake of the Ozarks market.

Thanks so much for helping us find the perfect home.

-Jane and Jim, Camdenton, MO
