I'm pleased that you've taken the time to visit my page. I have lived in Southern Illinois most of my life. I graduated from Southern Illinois University and have worked for the Illinois Department of Corrections. After 30 years, I retired from IDOC and was determined to pursue a different career. I have always had an interest in real estate. At the earlier age of 18, I realized the income potential of buying and selling property. It was then I purchased my first rental property. Over the years, I have continued to own and operate income property. I have always enjoyed working with the public and look forward to helping you with your real estate needs.
