2 min read

Stacy Hamilton grew up in Texarkana, Texas, and moved to Arkansas in 2005, working as a scheduler for Gov. Mike Huckabee. In 2007, she was an executive assistant to Attorney General Dustin McDaniel. She got her real estate license in 2008 and started her career in real estate. She worked in residential sales in the Little Rock-North Little Rock area for nearly 16 years.

Hamilton earned a bachelor’s degree from Texas State University in San Marcos and a master’s from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

What attracted you to real estate?

The influence of my parents, both successful salespeople, instilled in me a passion for building businesses and fostering client relationships. Growing up in a thriving community, I spent countless hours exploring new neighborhoods and construction projects, fascinated by the potential each space held. This early exposure, coupled with a local real estate channel featuring prominent agents, ignited a deep interest in the industry.

What’s the biggest challenge facing Realtors?

Understanding and communicating the business of real estate is an enormous issue. Realtors are constantly attempting to simplify the business so their clients can have an enjoyable experience. Therefore, the complexity of the business is often not understood by the public, and the amount of work a Realtor does for their clients is often missed. We have a large undertaking in helping the public understand the value of the profession and in providing an accurate perception of the industry as it goes through changes and growth over the next three to five years.

What do you enjoy most about your new job?

My role within the real estate industry extends beyond transactions. I find immense satisfaction in the strategic and advocacy aspects of the profession. The Little Rock Realtors Association has been a cornerstone of my journey, allowing me to serve on the board for several years. I am a firm believer in the necessity of our industry and the invaluable service Realtors provide. Protecting and promoting this profession has become a driving force in my career.

What’s the best advice you ever received?

The most valuable professional advice I received came from my father, an exceptional salesman and manager: “Always answer the phone.” This instilled in me the importance of constant accessibility and unwavering dedication to client care.

Who are your mentors?

Several individuals have profoundly impacted my life. First and foremost, my father’s guidance on business acumen and client service remains invaluable. Within the real estate industry, I hold Carolyn Cobb, a distinguished leader and broker, in high regard. Finally, Libby Sheard, my dear friend and mentor for over a decade, deserves immense credit. Taking over her role, built with two decades of dedication, is an immense honor.
