Two new sales associates have been named to Medlock & West Realty LLC, according to Alice Medlock, broker/owner.

Medlock said Lee Pixley, well-known, lifelong resident of Crawford County who lives in Rudy, brings a wealth of knowledge on ranches, cattle and broiler farms and land to the table.

"He has spent the past 40 years as a successful owner in these businesses," she said.

Steve Pixley is a native of Crawford County and was raised on a farm in Rudy.

"Steve has spent the past 11 years in the Fort Smith School system and he too excels in knowledge of farms and ranches," Medlock said. "Steve’s commitment to excellence and his negotiation skills are his greatest assets."

Medlock was named Crawford County’s 2013 Realtor of the year by the Crawford County Board of Realtors. The award is based on an individual’s service and involvement in the community plus local and state boards.

Medlock has served on many committees and chaired many of the board’s activities during the past 20 years, including "Award of Excellence" chairperson since 2002, three-year director position on the local board, MLS committee for three years and chairperson for the past four years for the Crawford County Board of Realtors annual fundraiser which supports Special Olympics and Court Appointed Special Advocates of Crawford County (CASA).
