Joplin, MO Real Estate

Joplin, MO Real Estate

Joplin, MO is located in the very center and heart of the four-state region in Southwest, MO and only 70 miles west of Springfield, MO. We are the gateway to the Ozark Mountain Region as well as Route 66, and as the fourth largest metropolitan area in the state we are proud to welcome you to your next home. While many of you know of our losses suffered from a tornado strike in May of 2011, what you may not know is that Joplin is rebuilding and rising from our destruction better than ever. Our main street and business district including Northpark Mall were not hit and continue to serve our community with their exceptional service. With numerous parks and places of interest such as the Joplin Museum Complex showcasing our history of lead and zinc mining, we encourage you to walk around Joplin and take a step in our shoes for a day.
