   We Make Good Things Happen For Other People!

 "The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion of their commitment to excellence, regardless of their field of endeavor."  Vince Lombardi

     Welcome!  I am a licensed broker and privileged member of the Illinois Association of REALTORS®, National Association of REALTORS® and the Egyptian Board of REALTORS®. I have served on the education and technology committee.  These relationships guarantee buyers immediate access to hundreds of the newest properties on the market each day while also enabling  sellers exposure to a huge network of buyers from other firms across the country while using the latest in technology.

 Don't trust just anyone with one of the biggest financial decisions you will make!  Home buying or selling is a large financial decision.

    I am a graduate of the University of Illinois animal sciences program.  After studying chemistry, organic chemistry and physics, I applied to the school of veterinary science at the U of I.  I did not gain admittance but the overall experience taught me the value of "learning" and applying critical and independent thinking to my personal and professional life.  My business experience includes a degree in Accounting and Business Management,  consulting for multi million dollar corporations, serving as training director, national marketing director for an insurance company in Geneva, Illinois and enough marketing and sales experience to "float the boat" so to speak.  

My wife Sara, and son Garrett live on a small farm and operate a cattle "seedstock" business in addition to running Southern Real Estate Group. (At least the animal science degree is put to use somewhere!)  I am a native of Southern Illinois and value the culture and beauty that its geography and people bring.

  I have references and will forward them to you on request!

At Southern Real Estate Group, a committed and passionate group of real estate professionals take pride in helping others reach their goals.   You will receive first class service, the latest in technology and the utmost integrity.  Experience our difference!

Don't trust your biggest financial investment with just any one.  Questions?  Call me.  Your success matters!  The relationship between a home buyer or seller and their agent is based on trust, shared goals and understanding.  If you think ALL agencies are the same;  do the same thing, and that there are no differences, we need to talk. 

I'd love to hear from you!
