William and Evelyn Bailey - Your Shawnee Wine Trail Property Resource! 

Following our careers in education and with our children grown, we earned our Real Estate licenses.  Our second career has allowed us to become reacquainted with so many former students and their families, to meet many wonderful new people from all over Illinois as well as Alaska, Louisiana, Arizona and places in between. We frequently find ourselves walking through some transitions in life with our clients, just by the nature of the business, which we find very rewarding.

Our work as also given us a chance to drive down some "roads less traveled" we never would have driven. We feel that Southern Illinois is an under-appreciated area of the state not only by “out of towners,” but also by those of us who live here. 

Bill and I work as a team.  I am the marketer and online researcher, but Bill is the one you'll want for all your contract through closing details.  We both show properties, often together.  I'll talk with you about the countertops, cathedral ceilings, and hardie board siding; he will discuss the lay of the land and the flora and fauna--trees. morels, turkey, white tailed deer and the best place for your garden!  (We're still educators, just with new topics!)

We are proud of the properties that we represent from single family homes in one of our friendly little towns to wine trail weekenders to large family farms.  We even represent some very interesting lots and commercial properties ripe with potential.

We hope you find just what you're looking for right here, but if you don't we'll be happy to do a no obligation search of All Realtors' properties in our area.  Yes, that's right.  ALL Realtors' properties.  Thanks to Broker Reciprocity, we can show theirs, and they can show ours.  That way you can work with the Realtor that you trust and that you connect with.  We'll help you find something that meets your needs.

Please feel free to contact us directly since our work frequently takes us away from the office desk.
