    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    Bob Troutt's real estate career was started on one simple idea in 1996 ... that Jonesboro needed an 18-hole public golf course. What came of that simple idea was Sage Meadows, a 550 home development on a Tommy Bolt Signature golf course in Northeast Jonesboro that is now fully developed with more than 1,500 residents. What followed with even a bigger deal in North Port Florida called Bobcat Trail, a 550-unit residential development on a Bob Tway Signature Golf Course. That was followed by Plantation Estates right down the street in North Port on part of a 2,200 acre piece of land known as Panacea. All project done by Troutt, his partners and company KEB Inc. KEB was a major part of the reason that North Port grew from a sleepy town of 20,000 people in 1996 to more than 60,000 people today.
    Prior to real estate, Troutt was a key member of Troutt Brothers Inc., owners of The Jonesboro Sun, the newspaper bought by his great-grandfather in 1901. The Troutts sold the daily, at that time the fourth largest newspaper in Arkansas to Paxton Publishing in 2000. Prior to the sale, Troutt rose from the ranks of kid carrier to reporter/photographer to ultimately Assistant Publisher. During his 25 years on the job, the newspaper grew from a 17,000 circulation daily, 24,000 Sunday to 28,000 daily and 32,000 circulation Sunday. In 1998, The Sun, under the Troutt's watch was selected runner up for the Pulitzer Price for its reporting of the Westside Elementary School shooting. Troutt and his brother, John E. Troutt, completed a major redesign of the newspaper that brought it into the 21st century.
    Troutt began selling real estate in 2008 for ERA Doty Real Estate in Jonesboro where he remains today. During his real estate sales career, he has sold more than $50 million in real estate and has ranked within the top 10 agents in Jonesboro for all but 2 years of his career. He was named Rookie of the Year by the Jonesboro Board of Realtors in 2008 and was named to the National ERA Leadership Team for total awards units in 2009. He has been a Diamond Member for sales three different years.
    More recently, Troutt has developed Wildwood and is in the process of developing Bobcat Meadows, both of which are located in Northeast Jonesboro. Both are residential single family subdivision with bills of assurance and minimum and maximum building guidelines.
    Troutt is married to the former Pam Riggs and has two children, Scott Troutt, a local Jonesboro attorney and Amanda Troutt Heringer, an executive with St. Bernard's Wellness Center. He also has three grandchildren, Greta Grace Troutt and Clara Faith Troutt and Harper Helen Heringer.

    James gave Bob 5 stars out of 5
    Bob did a fine job handling the sale of my uncle's house in Jonesboro. He was responsive and accurate during the marking analysis, handled communications promptly and clearly during the sale phase and handled the few hiccups quite efficiently. Would definitely use him again as a selling or buying agent.

    I recently purchased some property from Bob Troutt and was very pleased with the transaction from start to finish. Bob is very knowledgeable about all aspects of the real estate business and was always ready to answer my questions with accurate information. I was also pleased with how punctual he was with return calls. REV. Arthur Abraham

    I thought it would be interesting to provide readers of my blog some of the just received end of the year report by Jonesboro Unlimited. Not everyone has access to this information, but it is not limited to members of the development organization and it really contains some nice statistics regarding local real estate and employment.    First, regarding the workforce, Craighead County has a labor force consisting of 52,626 with 51,120 employed and 1,506 unemployed for ...

For those of you who might be interested in following this blog, I promise to you no politics (unless it is a matter of direct concern for Jonesboro residents), no religion and I will attempt to write clearly and use no words I can't spell.Those of you who are old enough to remember will recall that my family and I owned the local newspaper Th...

    Dream Home Wishes

    Wow!... I'll tell you what, you all came through when I asked the simple question: "If you could have one thing in your house that you don't currently have, what would it be?"  The answers were awesome and I learned a lot and sometimes laughed a lot.    Seems as though the most popular items that any builder ought to consider (depending on the price of the home) are as follows: two dishwashers; large pantry; safe rooms; separate icemakers; large laundry rooms or jus...
