Who We Are
We are a family-oriented company with a team of individuals, all possessing diverse experiences and backgrounds. We value high quality developments and most importantly, creating places we, too, would want to live, work or play. We devote passion and expertise to every project and welcome new opportunities, questions about your own property, valuations, inquiries about buying/selling property, development ideas, municipal projects and more...We are always seeking new and interesting developments to develop or collaborate on. We work efficiently and with honesty and integrity on all our endeavors and make no distinction whether our client or partner is an individual, a family, an estate, small business, municipality or a large corporation...we pour passion into every project.
Between time spent driving properties, off-roading to check construction, meeting residents, clients and neighbors, our team can be found in Bloomington watching the Hoosiers, bonding over a large firepit, fishing, seeking out a local diner or debating over the Cardinals versus the Cubs (house divided!).
