Candy BartonREALTOR Broker-Associate®

Little did I know when I decided to make real estate my retirement “hobby” how much I would love it! My family has been visiting lake of the Ozarks for as long as I can remember, so it was the perfect choice to move here in 2008 after 30 years in the corporate world. As a resort community with over 1,000 miles of shoreline and being voted the #1 recreational lake in the nation by US News, this area attracts people with diverse backgrounds and I love getting to know them and hearing their stories. Working closely with my buyers and sellers has given me the opportunity to make great friendships with people I may have never met otherwise. Our properties here are as diverse as the people. Whether you’re looking for a farm, a tiny cabin, a condo, or a $4 million lakefront home, we have it here.
Buying and selling real estate is not the same everywhere. There is a lot you need to know about buying and selling properties on Lake of the Ozarks. From dock and seawall permits to shoreline regulations, Condo and Homeowners' Associations, and building on lakefront lots, you need someone you can trust to help you navigate the intricacies of your personal real estate transaction.

I'm here to help, and I LOVE what I do!

    Bought a home in 2021 in Glensted, Versailles, MO 65084.
    It has been a pleasure doing business with Candy. She has a wealth of market knowledge and experience in the local real estate market. She is prompt and courteous and in our case she even maintained that throughout the holidays. With her help we were able to close on our property within one month of when we first contacted her and that included the end of the year holidays. I would also add that she does a great job of balancing being proactive and helpful without being pushy and intrusive.

    Sold a single family home in 2021 in Glensted, Versailles, MO 65084.
    When we decided we were ready to sell our vacation getaway, we had planned on contacting 2 agents. We contacted Candy first (because of prior contact we had with her) and another agent. After meeting with Candy, we looked no further. She was very professional, knowledgeable, confident, and personable. She sold our property quickly in a highly professional manner. She far exceeded our expectations.

    Sold a single family home in 2019 for approximately $350K in Eldon, MO 65026.
    I had my property listed with another agent who I had known for over 18 years and considered a dear friend so I listed my home with her. She put out a sign on the property and for six months I only received one look. A good friend of mine, and a customer of Candy's, suggested that I give her a call since she had sold several of his properties and some were challenging listings. I called and talked to her on the phone and explained how I had already purchased another home in Virginia and my wife was living there while I stayed in Missouri paying double mortgages and asked her if she thought she could help. She set up a time to meet the very next day, showed up on time and as we sat down, she opened up a folder with an Excel spreadsheet with my property, and at least ten other properties in the area that listed things like asking price, actual selling price, price per sq ft, time on the market, and so on. I was very impressed with the amount of work she had already done without even seeing my property by any means other than the current listing, and how enthusiastic she was about being able to sell my property of home and 40 acres. We walked through the house and she gave me her initial impressions as we moved from room to room, and after the walk through she made suggestions on what she would like to do if I signed with her. The plan sounded to be a solid plan, so I called my current agent and asked to be released from my commitment to her for her lack of showing any progress. After signing with Candy, who is now counted as one of my dear friends, she suggested having an interior decorator come in to specify new paint colors in curtain areas of the house. We then hired a professional photographer that produced an amazing virtual walkthrough of the house and an aerial presentation of the property and out buildings. The positive response immediate, and within a week the house was being shown. She not only get me a full price offer from a qualified buyer within two weeks, but the selling process was smooth and painless, as Candy was on top of every facet of the sell. I can't say enough good things about this consummate professional, but I give her the highest recommendation I can verbalize. If you are selling a property and want someone you count on, call this amazing woman.

    Bought a home in 2019 for approximately $100K in Laguna Beach, Osage Beach, MO 65065.
    My experience with Candy was the best. She was very proactive and always in front of any issues. She took the time to get estimates on inspection issues, and work those issues with the Seller on my behalf. She is a seasoned Pro in the business and you can tell. We closed in record time. I've purchased multiples properties and this was certainly the best experience to date. I highly recommend her service, you won't be disappointed!

    Sold a home in 2019 in Laguna Beach, Osage Beach, MO 65065.
    As a former Real estate Broker I know how difficult the process of selling a home is. Candy made our experience totally painless. In a matter of a week from listing our property she had 3 full price offers. Candy even sold our condo to her buyer. Some people want a listing agent, some want a selling agent. Candy is both. The consummate professional.
    Thank you Candy!

    Bought a single family home in 2019 for approximately $150K in Dodds, Climax Springs, MO 65324.
    Candy worked tirelessly with me over a seven-month period in searching for and purchasing a lakefront home at Lake of the Ozarks. Within weeks, I felt I had made a new friend who would help me in whatever way possible to achieve my dream, having a lake retreat to call my own. Candy is a knowledgable professional who cares about her clients. She knows the lake, knows the process, and she never pressured me into a decision or left me hanging. I've worked with a lot of realtors in many areas of the country, and Candy is definitely one of the best.

    Sold a single family home in 2018 in Eldon, MO 65026.
    Candy always kept us informed on homes that came on the home market. She asked us what we were looking for in a home and the location. We looked at several homes and finally found one that we really liked and then referred us to a home loan office. Candy went out of her way in helping us looking for our home . Once we found the home we liked, she promptly started the paper work and kept us informed on what we needed to do. Candy was always prompted on showing us homes and the paper work. I will give her a 10+ rating and I will recommend her to anyone who is looking for a home or some land. Candy Barton was great in helping us.

    Bought and sold a single family home in 2017 in Eldon, MO 65026.
    Candy is very knowledgeable in all aspects of her job and if she comes across something she doesn't know she will find out. She sold our house and helped us find a new one. From the get go she kept us in the loop of what was to be expected to come from both sides.She listened to what we were looking for in our next house and only found houses in that criteria and really promoted our house to other clients too. Over all we had a great experience with Candy and gained a friend by the end of it all.

    Katie and Grant, Thank you! It was my pleasure helping you sell your home and finding a bigger one to fit your growing family! And having you two as friends is the best part of it all!
