Dear Mr. Jones:
It was delight to work with you regarding my home purchase in Aurora, MO. Your experience, and hands on approach made things really easy; especially the long distance communication. I appreciate how you took personal interest in making a very complex situation work so smoothly. You handled every detail with the utmost professionalism.
I am very excited about my home purchase, and I look forward to additional property purchases. It was a pleasure to work with Great Commission Realty and without a doubt; I will use your services for all my home purchases in the future.

Bud was so great to work with! He helped my husband and I sell our home and find a great new home and he honestly looked out for our best interest.
He was willing to take the time to work with us and help us find a home that we could afford. After knowing Bud for a short time, I can honestly say that he is a man of character and integrity, which is not always easy to find.
I have referred Bud to several different individuals that are looking into buying or selling a home and I would not hesitate to do it again in the future.
To all contemplating buying a new home,
After adding a new member to our family, we began searching high and low to find a new home. We were looking for more space and a better neighborhood for our bouncy baby girl to grow up in.
We had been scouring the internet, checking the paper and picking up reality magazines searching for our dream home. We had met with several realtors and been to several homes. We came across Bud’s website and gave him a call. Over the next week we looked at 12 properties with Bud, but we were unable to find our perfect home in our price bracket.
Finally, in a desperate attempt we began cruising around town looking for sale signs. We found our perfect match in a for sale by owner home. We weren’t even sure Bud could help us obtain our home, but we gave him a call to find out. Turns out the sellers were thousands of miles away in California and were relieved to leave all the busy work to Bud. Bud went to the property himself to give it the once over and make sure it was a good value.
He did all our negotiating, wrote all the contracts, made all the calls and even accompanied us to the closing. Throughout our closing period he would call to check in on us and see that everything was going smoothly. After our signing he has still taken a genuine interest in our family.
I would recommend Bud Jones to anyone who didn’t want to be just another commission. To anyone who would like a friend and knowledgeable guide to help the find the right fit in a home. I feel that Bud Jones gave us more than the appropriate time and attention. Thank you Bud.

In the beginning when we found your web site we addressed you as Mr Jones. However over the last few months we have come to be great friends so that's the reason for the informal greeting.
We have been so very pleased to have a realtor who actually worked on our behalf. The mere fact that we have done a good amount of business through e-mail and faxing has proven how you took care of things for us while we still reside down here in Arkansas and were buying a home in Missouri. Thanks so much for your honesty and your accommodations to us as we needed appointments set up on short notice, etc., and at times even re-arranging your schedule for us.
We have been able to rest assured that you would keep us updated and on top of all transactions. It is great to know that there are still people who are committed to serving others with the highest integrity and honesty. Thanks so much for your kind spirit and the fact that you never once high pressured or rushed us. We are so pleased with your service. We believe the Great Commission Realty Company truly reflects the service given to us by you.

Buying a home/property can be very stressful. Buying “unseen” certainly creates anxiety. Add the fact that we bought from 12,000 miles away ... We are military, currently living in Germany. Thanks to Bud Jones, we now own a house and acreage in MO.
His adaptability and attention to detail got us through what could easily have been a nightmare. Through e-mail and phone calls, all of our questions and concerns were addressed in a caring and professional manner. I always knew that I had a friend (Bud Jones) working for my best interest in MO, with the least amount of stress possible.
I would highly recommend this agent for any short or long distance property purchase.

Bud has assisted us in 3 real estate transactions within the past 2-3 years. He is a great real estate agent and has become a great friend as well. We believe that one of the largest benefits of listing with Bud is this: He has some of the greatest exposure and advertising methods that are available in the market today. The last home that we sold were to some people that were out of state. They found out about our home on the internet through Bud’s advertising methods. We have always felt that Bud will go above and beyond for us and are thankful that there are still people like him around today! We would recommend his services to anyone.

Dave and I can't thank you enough for all your efforts in helping us purchase our new home. We appreciate you driving all the way to Monett to show us the house. You are a terrific real estate agent and we highly recommend you to any family looking to purchase a new home. We appreciate your attention to detail and your committment to making sure our transaction was smooth.
Thank you for everything,
Dave and Lisa Burton
It was such a blessing to have you as our realtor. After retiring from the military, we moved to Missouri from Washington State and had to rely on you for every resource. We didn’t have any friends or family here, so you were it. We had to jump through a bunch of hoops with my VA claims and you were always patient and never pushy. We love living in Battlefield and we love our new home. We also feel like we made new friends not only with you, but with the sellers as well. Overall A+ for everything!

I recently purchased a commercial building in downtown Aurora for my screen printing business. Bud, you made the entire process from the first showing through the closing a great experience. I have purchased several properties in the past, and this was by far the easiest and quickest of them all.
Thank you Bud for all of your hard work.

We are very happy to recommend Bud Jones to anyone who is seeking a realtor. Bud has shown tremendous patience with us by showing us over 200 homes during a two year period of time. He very quickly discerned what we were looking for, and took the time to show us house after house, never pressuring us to just buy something. His cheerful, optimistic attitude kept us encouraged during those long days of looking. He was not just out for a sale, but to make sure that we found the house that was right for us. We were grateful that he is so knowledgeable about the real estate market, as well as understanding quality construction. The thing that we appreciated the most, however, is Bud's integrity. We saw numerous examples of it in his dealings with other realtors, home owners, and with ourselves. We highly recommend Bud to anyone who is wanting to find a realtor who puts their interests first and will do everything in his power to help them buy or sell a home.

I want to thank you for coming into my life! You made my first home buying experience as painless and easy as possible. I would never have known about the wonderful area of Battlefield if you had not suggested we look there. I appreciated your calm and caring nature from the first house tour to the final signature at closing. I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family and would be very happy to work with you in the future. Thank you for everything you did.

“We were very thankful to meet Bud when we moved to the Springfield area from another state. He was very helpful, kind, and patient with us as we searched for that “perfect home“. We spent many days looking at quite a number of homes and Bud exemplified honesty and integrity the entire time. He wanted to make sure that we found the most ideal house for us….not to just “make a sale”. Since purchasing our beautiful home, we have become good friends with Bud and his wife. They are people of high integrity and are great friends!”

Bud came into our lives when we had less than a month to finish helping our daughter find, purchase and move into her first home. She lived out of state and we lived outside Springfield by about an hour. Working with another realtor was proving frustrating and fruitless.
I wrote that Bud came into our lives and that is just what it felt like he appeared one afternoon by chance and through he listening skills, connections in the community and professional experience, we accomplished everything -- including the move-in within 30 days. From the lender to the carpet layer, Bud worked (magically) to make certain this special event (you only buy your 1st house once!) was as stress free and exciting as possible for our daughter, and a worry-free experience for me and my husband.

Thank you for assisting us in selling our home on Indian Point. In just a matter of a few months you had an offer that resulted in the sale of our home. Your knowledge of the real estate market helped us make the right decisions. You were easy to work with and your honesty and integrity are second to none. Even with the challenges of our closing you were right there to guide us thru to the end. It was a pleasure to work with you and we have recommended you to several of our friends.

Bud was wonderful in helping us to find the right buyer for our home. We were impressed with his professionalism & dedication. He met our high expectations for a Real Estate Broker & actually went above & beyond. We highly recommend him to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.

Bud Jones - Great Commission Realty
Just wanted to thank you and let you know how much we appreciate you and all your help during our recent selling of both our homes and the purchase of our new home. With two homes to sell and the purchase of our new home, time was an important issue with all these transactions. My home sold in a couple of days and Harold’s in a couple of months and we are now living in our new home and couldn’t be happier!
In today’s economy, this was amazing. You made all these transactions easy and you were always available to answer any questions or help solve any problems that we had. And for that, we just want to say “Thank you” and let you know how much we appreciate you.
