For over six decades, Charles Burt Realtors has proudly called the Four State Area home. As the region’s premier non-franchised real estate firm, we’ve had the privilege of helping thousands of families and businesses navigate the unique real estate landscape of this beautiful region, which includes parts of Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. So, what makes the Four State Area so unique for real estate? Let’s dive in.

Diverse Property Landscape

First and foremost, the Four State Area boasts an incredibly diverse range of properties. From quaint, historic homes nestled in Joplin’s charming neighborhoods to expansive, newly built custom homes in the outskirts of Carthage, there’s something for every taste and budget. Our talented agents live and work in these communities, and their intimate local knowledge allows them to guide clients to their dream homes effectively and efficiently.

Resilience Born from Adversity

The Four State Area, and Joplin in particular, is no stranger to adversity. The Joplin tornado of 2011 was one of the most powerful and destructive in recorded history. But it was in the aftermath of this event that the true strength and spirit of our community came to the fore. The people of Joplin and the surrounding area rallied together, rebuilding homes, businesses, and lives. This resilience is a defining characteristic of our community, and it extends to the real estate market. Buying a home here isn’t just about acquiring property; it’s about becoming part of a community that stands together, no matter what. Despite the challenges we face, the Four State Area remains a place where people are proud to call home.

Exceptional Quality of Life

Another unique aspect of the Four State Area is its exceptional quality of life. The region is teeming with natural beauty, from the shimmering waters of Grand Lake to the verdant landscapes of Neosho’s numerous parks. The area also offers an abundance of recreational opportunities, cultural attractions, and educational institutions. These attributes make it a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family, and they’re factors that greatly enhance property value and appeal.

Our comprehensive suite of services, from our relocation service and Molandco home construction division to our First Home Mortgage and CB Title divisions, are specifically designed to simplify the complexities of the Four State Area’s real estate market.


The Four State Area is a unique and exceptional place to navigate the world of real estate.
