Jim Smakal – Realtor®
Beaman Realty - Lakeview, Arkansas
Jim's Contact Info
Hello. My name is Jim Smakal. Our family visited the Twin Lakes Area for several years before my wife, Sandy, and I packed up our three children in 1985, purchased Waterfront Resort in Lakeview and moved from Medinah, IL.
Why? The climate was attractive, the folks friendly, unlimited natural beauty and recreational opportunities, great schools and medical facilities. What a great place to live and raise our children. Like us, many of our guests at the Waterfront, liked the area so much that they too wanted to move here.
So in 1990, I joined the Beaman Realty team to help our guests and others realize their dreams of relocating to our area. I enjoy working with people and have been successful in helping them find the perfect home to raise their family, purchase a business or enjoy retirement.
I am a life member in the Arkansas Realtor’s Association Million Dollar Club. My experience includes residential property, acreage, lots and businesses, specializing in resorts. I am a member of Redeemer Lutheran Church. I also recently retired as a firefighter and emergency medical technician with Grover Township Fire Department, where I served for 24 years. I am active in many community projects, events and volunteer groups. I’ve been a member of Bull Shoals Lake-White River Chamber of Commerce since 1987 and on the Board of Directors since 2002.
In my quiet time, I put up the “Gone Fishing” sign and get out on the lake for some fishing action. Our favorite pastime is inviting friends to join us on our houseboat cruising Bull Shoals Lake and riding our wave runners. We’re happy to be here and our only regret is: Why we didn’t make the move sooner!
