Hi my name is Stacey Carnes-Stricker and I sell real estate in Elk City Oklahoma also serving Western Oklahoma. I really do love selling real estate. I know a lot of us make that statement about our careers but I can truly say it and mean it. I have been in the Real Estate Industry for over 22 years. My career began in Property Management and when I relocated to Western Oklahoma specifically Elk City I decided to move to the other side of Real Estate by helping people buy a new home or sell their home. I also assist with land and commercial real estate. I have also expanded into staging homes. I want my homes to look the very best and stand out above all others. You would be surprised that sometimes it really does not take much.
Why should you list your home with me? Well to get cut to the chase I work very hard. This is my career and full time job. I am a Top Agent in Beckham County. If your home does not sell it does not help either one of us. I put a lot into marketing and can honestly say I do more marketing than anyone else in Elk City. My business partner and I recently just received the Gensis Award from United Country for Outstanding Marketing. I am always looking for and coming up with new ideas to market a home. I care about the people and families I work with and want the best for them. My philosophy is simple, I am here to help you achieve your real estate needs and goals. I believe in God first and with that said we cannot go wrong.
If you are looking to buy a home I can help you there as well. I have great lenders that I have built relationships with that are available to prequalify buyers within a matter of minutes. If you are a first time home buyer I will be there every step of the way. Of course this goes to say I do this with everyone. However, for a first time home buyer the process can be overwhelming. I am here to help make it easier. Whether you are looking for an investment property or your dream home I will take the time that is needed to find what you need.
I am also the ELP for The Dave Ramsey Show. I have worked with this company for several years and I am very thankful for this relationship. I have learned so much to help with my business and personal life.
I am an open book and love to share life. Usually by the time a home is sold or purchased the buyer or seller has become a friend. I know their family, their story, laughed with them and sadly at times cried with them. At the end of the day it is about the person. I am so thankful for the people that I have had the opportunity to meet and work with.

I’m Karen Ingram, I’m from Elk City and I graduated from Elk City in 2007. After high school, I was able to spread my wings a little bit and get into modeling, acting, and radio. Those things taught me a lot about the importance of networking and being comfortable in your own skin. I’ve always been into Real Estate, in one way or another. In 2021 I was finally able to pursue my dream and got my Real Estate license. I hit the ground running and worked my first contracted offer 18 days after getting my license. Being rooted in Elk City, Oklahoma I have a special love for our community which pours over into working with out of town/state buyers. In my time away from Real Estate you can find me spending time with my two kiddos, making videos, sewing, learning something about history, or remixing ‘90’s alt rock songs into opera. I’d also really like a Jeep for Christmas if anybody wants to put one in my stocking…just a suggestion, no biggie. Anyway, if you’ve read this far, come find me with #selling580 and let me get to know you!
