I'm a real estate professional ready to help you!
I am a licensed managing broker servicing Central Illinois with an emphasis in local residential sales and commercial real estate transactions across the Central Illinois area. I am a proud Decatur resident, graduate from Millikin University, local business owner and supporter, golfer, dog lover, and advocate for all things “Decatur”.
My wife, Taylor, is also a real estate broker in the Central Illinois area. Together we enjoy both selling and investing in real estate. Consequently, we spend a lot of time at the hardware stores picking out the newest upgrades for our investment projects!
I help lead Main Place Real Estate, a dynamic real estate brokerage team based in Decatur. I also manage a small, yet growing, personal real estate portfolio (both commercial and residential investment properties). Real Estate has always been a large passion of mine, as I was introduced to it by my father at a young age. I firmly believe in continuing education and self-improvement. In 2019, I earned my CCIM (certified commercial investment member) designation. I am an active board member of the CCIM Illinois Chapter and I leverage the skills and vast network of this distinguished designation.
Professionally, I am a member of numerous trade organizations including: National Association of Realtors, Illinois Association of Realtors, Central Illinois Board of Realtors, CCIM, ICSC, and Worldwide ERC. I also obtained my certification in U.S. Tax Treatment of Home-Purchase Plans in 2019. In addition to professional organizations and achievements, I have the opportunity to serve in a few local organizations including: Greater Decatur Chamber of Commerce, The Decatur Club, and Rotary Club of Decatur.
While obtaining my bachelor's degree in Business Finance, I enjoyed four years competing on the Millikin University golf team. The game of golf has contributed to much of my current success - I love the never-ending challenge and competition! Although I am originally from the north shore of Chicago, after spending time in Central Illinois, I grew to appreciate all that Decatur has to offer. Upon graduating from Millikin, I helped launch and manage a local quick-service restaurant with the help of family and friends, which also increased my desire to remain a Decatur resident long-term.
Every day, I am thrilled to pursue my passion while sharing the real estate experience with both natives and newcomers to Decatur and the surrounding area.
