Flake & Company’s origins go back to the Great Depression when, in 1932, Charles Leon Flake formed a real estate company whose primary focus was the residential sector. Sons Dickson and John joined their father’s business, transitioned to it to mainly commercial real estate, then proceeded to earn the distinction as one of Arkansas’ most respected and trusted names in real estate. In 1979, John Flake, a true visionary, ventured away from Dickson to form his own commercial real estate company. Through the years that followed, John Flake amassed a portfolio of some of the most impressive and notable buildings/projects in the region.
Fast-forward to today and you’ll find one of the most progressive commercial real estate companies in the region. Lead by John Flake’s daughter Jessica Flake Dearnley, who brings a depth of real estate experience along with her extensive analytical background in related fields. Jessica has assembled a team of industry experts that includes Partner and veteran Property Manager Kevin McCollum, Co-Founder Thomas Schmidt who ranks as one of the top transaction brokers in the region, and a Partner Matthew Dearnley with over twenty-years of experience. With such an experienced and diverse team, it’s easy to see why Flake & Company is advancing the marketplace with a refreshing approach to commercial real estate. With an industry name that will be 100-years old in 2032, our goal is now to be a 200-year old company someday! We have a commitment to outstanding service and placing our clients’ needs above all else.
