First Delta Realty takes great pride in providing the Arkansas Delta area with great real estate service.  Here's a little bit about a few of the towns in the area.

The quaint town of Marion lies on the banks of the Mighty Mississippi River. This growing bedroom community to Memphis, TN is filled with culture, charm and a lot of charisma. Marion became the county seat of Crittenden County in 1836, the year Arkansas became a state. Marion was known for timber and a friendly place for steamboats to stop along their journey of the Mississippi. As times change, timber was harvested and Marion became a Mecca for farming. The rich soils of the river were ideal for cotton, wheat, rice, soybeans and milo.

Marion is still very much an agricultural town but has quickly become home to some major manufacturing & distribution plants including home to Hino a division of Toyota, Union Pacific’s Intermodal Rail Port, & Vintage Verandah. These are just a few to scratch the surface. Marion is also developing a 90 acre Town Center called Angelo’s Grove. The Town Center will be home to major retailers, restaurants, hotels and even a cinema and a small residential neighborhood! Angelo’s Grove is already home to several national chains with many more to come.

Just a short drive across the bridge to Memphis you will find Christian Brothers University, Rhodes College, Lemon Owen, Baptist College of Health Science and The University Of Memphis which now offers in-state resident tuition to Crittenden County residents.

MYSA has a wonderful organized sports league that provides basketball, football, baseball, soccer and cheerleading to over 1000 kids a year. Marion and the surrounding area offer endless recreational opportunities such as Golf, Fishing, Hunting, and Camping.
