Her experience leading the county’s only chamber of commerce and her working relationship with both tourism and economic development have given her a unique and unparalleled perspective on the market.

Jason and LaTura Meikrantz, Realtors

Together they are a force to be reckoned with...The New CenFlo Group!
Jason Meikrantz spent his last 16 years in the home improvement industry and attained a corporate position. Although extremely successful in his career he felt unfulfilled by the long hours and time away from his family. Having helped so many attain their dreams in his previous job Jason felt it was time to walk away and chase his own - being a Realtor. It is his goal to help others find that special place where they can raise their families and find some peace away from the bustle of daily life. 
LaTura has over 20 years of experience in customer service and logistics which makes being a Realtor second nature. Logistics and customer service lie at the very heart of real estate transactions. Logistics is defined as the detailed coordination of a complex operation involving many people, facilities, or supplies which is another way to say taking you from the showing or listing of a home to the closing table! LaTura's customer service background ensures your experience will be one where her customer's satisfaction and happiness are always a topmost priority.
