Talk Of The Town TEAM

Talk of the Town is your NW Arkansas ResourceChief Inspirational Officer, Theresa King-Thompson | Theresa knows and honors the true charm, character, culture and legacy of Northwest Arkansas and speaks of it often with much passion and purpose.  Attend Newcomer Reception to hear her 7 Sacred Secrets to Connection in Northwest Arkansas.

She also believes a little hospitality is in order for our 35+ newcomers arriving daily, residents deserve support as well regarding customer service and the local businesses she and her team pre-screen to make available as leaders in their industry.  They’ve basically taken the business referrals from their pockets and brought them forward – to you – as a true referral, a great service and a high recommendation.
Many moons ago networking, asking a neighbor or handing out a business card was enough yet in our growing community Talk of the Town NWA is taking it a step further by creating a Northwest Arkansas referral resource for today’s 500,000+ population – yet we keep it personable.

Each and every Business Client in our Business Directory we’ve met and approved personally.  Online 24/7 for busy people and Offline as we gather at our Newcomer Receptions and meet each other face to face to include NWARK Supper Club gatherings  & NWARK Wisdom Workshops.

Please mention Talk of the Town for an enhanced experience.

Talk of the Town is your NW Arkansas ResourceChief Connection Office, Jessi Bergen | When you move to a new area it can be scary, overwhelming, and/or lonely. When you move to a new area it can be exciting, fun, and/or a great way to expand your circle of friends. It can also be a mixture of all of these things. This is what made me passionate to join Theresa in spreading the word about Talk of the Town NWA.

Having my own experience moving into the area newly married and with a little one on the way, I had to find ways to get out of the house and to get connected. I made many new friends, found amazing places to eat, and fun activities to be involved in. After being a stay at home Mom for a year and half, I stepped into the Real Estate world and began the beautiful juggle of motherhood, being a wife, and working. I love all of the networking this career path involves as I have a love and curiosity of people and their stories.

I would really enjoy getting to know you and help you to get connected in with our lovely community to help make sure you experience all the wonderful things about moving to the area. I am a REALTOR® here in NWA which makes me resourceful. I invite you for a cup of joe…or tea if you prefer and good conversation. Welcome! ~Jessi
