Success Stories
  • We were extremely happy with the attention and results that Clark and Linda brought to our 43 acre farm. Their knowledge of Van Zandt Co and the Mabank area was so helpful. They did a great job in marketing our property. We couldn't have been happier. We would use The Country Connection again!

    Dan and Linda Cannistra, Florida
  • The Country Connection was my listing agency for 2 sales. I cannot say enough about the experience I had with Clark and Linda. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an agent for buying or selling! Can't say enough good things about them! Good people, good business!
