Hi, my name is Matt Brooks. I am began my real estate journey here at United Country Exploration Realty in 2020. I have grown up around the Southwest and Western parts of Oklahoma, but Elk City is home to me. I have previously worked primarily in office settings for oilfield related companies and decided it was time to try something new and exciting. I have always had it in the back of my head that I would like to give real estate a go, and now just felt like the right time! I tend to be an extremely outgoing individual; when I want something I set my mind to it and complete it. I have always been a firm believer that when you start something you should always hit the ground running and do the best you can.
I look forward to helping you with whatever your real estate needs may be, from buying or selling a home to looking for the perfect location for you to open your business. I understand that sometimes it can all seem overwhelming and want to assure you that I am here to try to make this process as simple and fun as we can make it!
I am a former educator - from classroom to administrator in Burns Flat located in western Oklahoma. I received my REALTOR license during that same time and worked at both professions simultaneously. I have been in western Oklahoma all my life. Therefore, I know the people (and all their relatives), the towns, the local amenities, the land, and the economy. I have the proven background and experience to assist you in buying and selling residential, investment, commercial, and land properties. I want to be your "Go To" person for everything to do with real estate in Elk City and the surrounding area. If I don't have the answer to your need, I'll will point you in the right direction to find it.
My business goal is to have a select group of friends and past customers who consider me their lifelong real estate professional. I want to earn that trusted position so they'll enthusiastically refer their friends to me. My plan to achieve this is simply to help these people with all their real estate needs not just when they buy or sell but for all the years in between.
My passion is real estate and I would welcome a call to talk with you about the current market, trends, or to discuss a particular property. I serve Elk City and all of western Oklahoma.
I started selling real estate in Western Oklahoma about many years ago in 1978 while teaching at Altus High School. I have worked in all aspects of education from kindergarten to high school to vocational education, both as a teacher and an administrator. I have been involved with schools in Western Oklahoma at Clinton, Altus, Sayre, and Erick, retiring in 2005. I have been with United Country in Elk City for 16 years. Prior to this I sold real estate in Altus. I first worked as a sales associate and then I became a Real Estate Broker Associate in 1983. I really enjoy keeping abreast of home and land sales in all of Western Oklahoma. I enjoy working with both Buyers and Sellers, especially with those are dealing with problems with their finding or selling property. I am available at all times and weekends for any questions and all your real estate needs. I always look forward to talking and working with new individuals.
I have lived and worked in Western Oklahoma all of my life. I went to school here and raised my children here. Red Dirt is in my blood. I've been in the Real Estate business for more than 28 years. I've found that real estate is much more than just buying and selling houses, it's about finding a home and building a life. It is the single largest purchase most families ever make. I'm proud to be able to walk through the process with families every day.
I grew up in Erick, Oklahoma. I now reside with my family south of Sayre, Oklahoma. I have lived in Oklahoma all of my life and currently own and operate WillowRidge Ranch with my husband, Joey Rippetoe and children Raine & Ruger.
My husband Joey grew up in Willow, OK and attended Carter schools, and is currently a Completion Consultant for Devon Energy. Raine & Ruger attend Sayre Public Schools.
I graduated SWOSU with my Associate’s degree in General Business & my Bachelor of Science degree in Management Information Systems and have experience in accounting. I have worked in the office, from home, and on the farm.
Joey & I have met so many people from all over the US through our hunting outfitting, oilfield career, and school events. My experience in these different areas will help me be well rounded to help in so many different types of real estate transactions! I am a certified REALTREE LandPro through United Country Real Estate, giving me a National platform to market and sell land that is ideal for all hunting outfits. I am so excited to meet you and hustle to help you find or sell your property!

Hi! My name is Rhonda Twyman. I’m a military “Brat” born in Hawaii. Born into a military family we moved state to state until my Dad retired from the Marines. After my Dad’s retirement we moved to Western Oklahoma and settled in Elk City during the first “Oil Boom” in the 1980's and have made it my home ever since. My husband, Hank was born and raised 7 miles from Elk City in the small town of Canute. He is a former Law Enforcement Officer and currently works in the oilfield. My husband and I have started several entrepreneurial businesses from Retail Stores to owning a Campground here in Western Oklahoma. I sold real estate part time several years ago and have missed it ever since. I recently have jumped back into it in pursuit of making it my fulltime career. Having owned and operated several businesses throughout the years I have made several contacts and gained considerable knowledge of commercial property and operations. I would love to help you pursue your dreams whether its owning and operating your own commercial business or the purchase of your dream home! I look forward to the opportunity to meet and work with you!
Hi my name is Stacey Carnes 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.
