Buying or selling Real Estate in Champaign, Illinois will probably be one of the single largest investments you will ever make. The real estate agent you hire is an integral part of that real estate transaction. Contact me for all of your Central Illinois and Champaign Illinois Real Estate needs.
What sets me apart from all of the other Champaign Illinois Realtors® is my innovative use of current technologies, creative and unique marketing ideas, and a desire to offer unmatched customer experiences.
What is my home worth? When is the best time to Buy? / Sell? What are my financing options? How is the real estate market in Champaign, Mahomet, Savoy, Urbana, Tolono, Monticello?
These are all great questions that I receive all of the time. I would be happy to discuss any questions that you may have about the complicated real estate market. Real estate is so specific from home to home, or individual to individual that a broad answer typically will not work. I would be happy to meet with you and tailor a game plan for your specific needs.
If you are looking to buy or sell, I would appreciate the opportunity to earn your business!
I was born in Gibson City, Illinois and have lived in Central Illinois my entire life, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I married my wife Jessica in 2005 in Neoga, Illinois. We have two wonderful children and a third on the way. A few years back, we realized that we were outgrowing our home in Champaign and decided to buy a larger one in Mahomet.
Early in my life, I realized that I have a strong passion for real estate. I continued my studies by attending Eastern Illinois University, earning both a bachelor’s in business management, and then a master’s degree in business administration.
My formal real estate licensing training started right out of college. I first received my Florida Sales Associate license, and worked in the Pinellas County Florida market. When I first joined the Pinellas Realtor Association, they had over 5,000 Realtors. Training in such a large and competitive market has given me the experience and skills that many in Central Illinois do not have. If you are looking to relocate to Tampa, Clearwater, or St. Petersburg let me know, I would be happy to refer you to a trusted agent. I still maintain my license and strong connections with other qualified Realtors in Pinellas County.
After my training in Florida, I decided it was time to bring my services back “home” to Central Illinois. I immediately tested for and received my Illinois real estate broker’s license. The licenses have since changed in Illinois and sales associates are now considered brokers. I decided to maintain the level that I previously had, so I now possess a managing broker’s license.
Over the years I have earned many real estate specific designations/certifications. These include:
The e-PRO Certification Course is an educational program unlike any other professional certification or designation course available. It is comprehensive and Interactive. It is sponsored by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION of REALTORS® and is specifically designed to help real estate professionals thrive in the competitive world of online real estate.

Students will learn how to integrate international referrals, resulting in increased income, into their business plans.
