Hello, I’m Charles Barnes, and I have a few positive things to say about Oklahoma’s real estate market. I have been in the real estate business in Oklahoma for over 50 years! It has been a great experience. When I started on February 15, 1971, I sold 17 homes my first month and received as many listings. In those days, revenue from listings was but 10% of the commission. All real estate offices worked for sales, not realizing listings were the lifeblood of the real estate business.
Today, things have changed. Listings generally pay as much as a sale. People are moving to Oklahoma in droves every day and looking for a home to buy; not to mention investors outside of Oklahoma investing into our state.
When I started, interest rates for FHA and VA loans were around seven percent, and even higher for conventional loans. Today, if you receive a listing, people from all over the country are ready to buy at unbelievably low rates.
We haven’t seen a “land rush” like this since 1889 in Oklahoma. If you have ever considered selling real estate, there has never been a better opportunity to enter the real estate business than right now.
Don’t let the opportunity of a lifetime pass you by. If you are ready for hard work with long hours, in my opinion, there has never in Oklahoma history been an opportunity like this. If you have wanted the potential to earn a six-figure income, don’t let this opportunity pass you by.

My grandparents made the land run of 1889 and had to work hard tilling the soil and building a log cabin just to survive. If you can submit yourself to that kind of hard work, you can reap the rewards of the land run of the 21st century. Your grandchildren may tell how successful their grandparents were in 2021 and beyond!
Don’t let this opportunity pass you by.
