I am a real estate broker, investor, and entrepreneur in Central Illinois, as well as a non-traditional college student with a focus in business! I began developing my real estate portfolio in 2014, which has grown to include commercial and residential properties in Macon County.
I began investing in Decatur as an entrepreneur in 2012 when I opened Lockhart’s Barber Shop. Serving the people in the community gave me the opportunity to build relationships with many of the locals and I soon fell in love with the people. Thanks to the support of our community, my one-man shop grew to five locations and led to founding the premier barber college in downstate Illinois. Our commitment to providing the best possible service led to awards from the Greater Decatur Chamber of Commerce and Herald & Review Readers’ Choice Awards. We have been proud to give back with local union collaboration efforts that provide free back to school haircuts and special holiday events for the children of Macon County.
My wife and I have grown to love and appreciate the history of Decatur and decided to call the historic West-End home. Although the deed may state otherwise, our two miniature Dachshunds, Walter and Henry, would argue that they own the place.
