Meet Your Devine Team

We're not your average real estate team ... it's all about CUSTOMER REALTIONSHIPS in our office. Rather than boring old bio's (self-flattering drivel), our team decided it would be more interesting to get to know us if we answered 10 questions each ... some serious, some fun!

It's just how we roll.

My husband and I were looking for a house here in Eldon and met Vicki with Devine & Associates Real Estate. Vicki met the challenge and showed us around.

Billi goes above & beyond her job description, she listens to your wants & needs and helps you find exactly what you are looking for.  She is always very cordial and kind and willing to answer any questions you have.  We would highly recommend her & if we ever need a REALTOR® again she will be the first one we contact!
~Don Hoepker, Bought a home in Lake Ozark in 2015

Billi has helped us list and sell multiple bank owed properties.  She went above and beyond preparing the properties for the best showing possible.  She worked long hours finding buyers and negotiating offers.  What I like best about Billi is her tenacious personality.  We gave her some “challenging” properties to sell and she did so in a remarkably short period of time.  If you’re looking for someone that stops at nothing to get your property SOLD, then Billi is your agent.
~Bank of Sullivan

Billi was thorough and forthright on all aspects of our purchase of our home at the lake.  I would highly recommend her for any home you are buying or selling at the Lake of the Ozarks.  She was magnificent. Sincerely,
~Rodney D. Stephenson, Bought a house in 2015

Billi did a great job for us.  She helped us work through some difficult times with our financing.  She worked for us getting us the best possible deal.  She was quick and attentive.  She knows the area well and has many helpful ideas.  She has a wonderful networking system of people to call on.  We would for sure list or buy from her in the future.
~Clara, Bought a home in Sunrise Beach in 2015

Billi advertises the house very well and always gives us feedback which helps out a lot.  Billi always calls back and takes the time to talk and let us know what need to be done to help sell our home. After numerous showings our home is now Under Contract and will close in January 2016!

Client Testimonials

I would like to “Thank You” for going above and beyond to get my house SOLD! I know it was a challenge, but you did whatever it took to make it happen. It meant so much to me when you took your time to do everything extra that you did. Keep in touch and I wish you a Very Prosperous 2016!!!
~ April

Once we found out we were relocated to the Eldon Area, we contracted Chuck Yow about 4 months prior to our moving date.  We explained we were looking for a home with acreage and/or acreage near the homestead and Chuck found us both!  He was easy to work with, answered all of our questions, and wrapped things up in a timely manner.  He made what we originally thought to be a stressful transition a walk through the park. We appreciate him and everyone at Devine & Associates going the extra mile for us! ~Andrew & Rene Revelle

I have bought and sold properties for years and have never had a REALTOR® work better for me.  Chuck Yow viewed our listing with true interest noting every detail.  When listed he advertised the property and work very well with other REALTORS® showing the property but when it got right down to it, it was Chuck’s showings that really counted with multiple offers, and after a few short months he found us a buyer that we worked with on the price. During the selling process Chuck work very diligently with information to complete a problem free closing.  I would highly recommend Chuck Yow at Devine & Associates Real Estate to be your REALTOR®.
~Steve Lee

Get to Know Candy Barton REALTOR® / Residential, Out of Area Buyer/Seller Specialist

Candy Barton
573-247-8103 (Cell)
INfo@CANDYBARTON.REALTOR

What is your role at Devine & Associates?
Missouri licensed REALTOR® and Sales Associate

How did you get involved in real estate at LO?
I've known Vicki for years and she always said I should be in real estate, so I decided to take her advice.

Who is your family?
Besides our family at Devine & Associates, my husband and I have been married nearly 40 years. We have 3 children, 8 grandsons, and our first great grandbaby on the way - also a boy!
 
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Free what? Playing with all those boys is #1. After that, if I have any time, I am a custom hat maker. I make hats for the Kentucky Derby, and I love to to garden, fish, canoe, ride motorcycles, and just about anything outdoors.

If money were no object, what would you do?
I would travel, have my own personal chef and personal trainer so I could eat delicious food every day, and look like Charlize Theron, right?

How long have you lived in the Lake Area?
I've been here about 8 years, and I love it. 

What is something no one knows about you?
People know mostly everything about me. I've had an interesting life and lots of experiences, and I love to share stories with people. One funny thing that happened to me (not funny at the time, of course) was when I was accidentally catapulted above the roof of my house.

What do you find most rewarding about your job?
I love to learn and share knowledge with people, so one of the most rewarding things is sharing information and knowledge about what works and what doesn't, and helping others create a plan to find the perfect property for what they're trying to accomplish.

If you could only eat one food for a month, what would you choose & why?
I could live on smoked salmon and Brie cheese forever, I think.

If you could go back in time and meet any historical figure, who would you meet and why?
Honestly, there are so many that I would love to be able to sit down with to pick their brain, but if I had to choose just one, I would have to say Jesus. I mean, after all, He had a direct line to all the knowledge of the past, present and future so I could probably just sit next to Him and absorb through osmosis anything I want to know, don't you think?

Client Testimonials

My name is Elaine and I live in the Chicago area.  My husband and I had property in the Osage Beach area for years. Unfortunately, things changed and we decided to sell our property. Candy came highly recommended by my brother as she sold his property within a week of putting it on the market.  We called Candy thinking this won't sell as fast but we were ready for the wait (our previous house up here was on the market for 15 months). After just 4 days, she called us with a buyer.  She got us exactly what we asked for and completed the transaction so smoothly everything went through without us having to worry about a thing. So, if you are looking for a realtor who works for her clients - Candy Barton is the one to call. Thank you, Candy for being so efficient and caring about our requests.
~Elaine, December 2016

I would like to take this opportunity to give a BIG Thank You to Candy Barton with Divine and Associates Real Estate for all the help in guiding us in the right direction in purchasing our next home. She is friendly and very knowledgeable. She answered all our questions and guided us through the process of selling our rental properties as well.  So if you are serious about selling or purchasing your next home, give Candy a call.
~Ronda R., September 2016


3 months ago my mother passed away unexpectedly. The entire week from the time she became sick until the time she died was an emotional roller-coaster. The next day I discussed with my dad the desire to move him close to me and my family so I could be near him if he needed anything and he wouldn't be 600 miles away if something went wrong. He agreed to let me do that and I instantly got in touch with a local realtor, Candy Barton. She was amazing and very helpful. After talking with Candy he was much more at ease and felt very comfortable working with her. Within 3 days we were receiving offers, we were extremely excited and I felt a great burden being lifted off my shoulders knowing I would be able to get my father closer to me in a quicker fashion than I could have imagined.  Candy knew how I felt about my father and knew that it wasn’t just a “place”, but it was my family’s memories, so she went above and beyond to ease our anxiety and to be empathetic to our feelings. I am very thankful we had Candy as our agent and would recommend her to anyone.  She even brought the entire family lunch the day we moved! Now that’s above and beyond!
Thanks Candy Barton! You were definitely a God send and thanks for your kind words.

~Bern Havey, July 2016


 Candy Barton is absolutely the most professional, friendly, and caring real estate pro you could find. Anyone looking for a home or property, contact Candy immediately. Otherwise, you're wasting your time....
~Robby Daniels, July 2016


Candy is a real pleasure to work with.  She knows the Lake real estate markets well, and has been responsive to all of our concerns in selling our home.  I recommend her highly!
~Bob Frick, July 2016


When I decided to relocate, I called Candy thinking that it would be a long and difficult process trying to sell our beloved place in the hills of the Ozarks since it was so secluded and away from major towns. After talking to her I told her how much I wanted for the place, she said she could do that - even though it was slightly more than she suggested. Much to my pleasant surprise Candy was calling me within 3 days with offers! The home I thought would be hard to sell, Candy had offers on in 3 days! I am now in my new home in Texas and don’t have the stress of worrying about anything back in Missouri because Candy handled it, just like she said she would. I would recommend Candy to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house.  She was very helpful, pleasant, kind, and always there to answer any questions I had. In a very stressful time in my life she made relocating a whole lot less stressful. Thank you Candy!
 ~Wayne R. Havey, May 2016


When you first meet Candy, you think that you’ve been friends forever.  That’s the way she makes you feel.  She was dedicated to finding just the right place for us.  She listened to our needs, and answered all our questions.  That was important to me because many realtors only want to show you places that THEY want to sell and are not in tune with what you’re really looking for.  Our time was limited traveling from out of state, and Candy spent the whole day with us, showing us a number of properties, and we purchased our Lake home that same day!  She walked us through the entire process from our initial consultation to closing, and every step along the way.  Candy has been great for us, and honestly, we could not have had a better real estate agent!
~Linda and Rolland Woods, August 2016
