Born and raised in the country, near the town of Kelso in Southeast Mo., Mike learned early about the importance of hard work and integrity. Whether raising livestock, building in the construction industry or developing real estate, he always relied upon the values his parents taught and reinforced as he grew up…., be honest, fair and help those in need when you can.
Most of his adult life, Mike has been implementing those values in SouthWEST Mo., and passing them along to his son and grandkids. The town of Strafford is close to where he calls home now but no matter where he is, the love of the land will be in his blood.
Constructing, farming and developing real estate has always been a passion so if you need someone with experience in big farms, hobby farms, Commercial and Hotel properties, Mike is ready, willing and able to help you sell, and find your dream home or that ideal investment property.
What makes a great real estate agent one might ask? Listening, problem solving and attention to detail would top the list. Helen has spent a lifetime developing those skills.
Helen developed great listening skills while driving a school bus for special education students. Listening to them talk about their achievements, failures, and problems provided invaluable insight into life.
Employed for many years at Arlington Heights Memorial library, Helen provided basic computer help desk service. Many older people were afraid to use the computer, fearing that they would do something wrong. Walking them through the process and watching them learn and grow was the best part of the job.
As president of Barrington Woods homeowners association, Helen led her unincorporated subdivision to an annexation deal with the Village of Palatine and a housing developer to obtain water, sewer, and services at no cost to the homeowners.
A lifelong Chicago area native, Helen relocated to Conway, Missouri. She traded the crowded suburbs for country life on a farm. In doing so, Helen faced a severe learning curve, culture shock along with wonderful opportunities. The geographic area is beautiful, but the real treasure is in the people that live here.
Recently Helen has been working with seniors at several senior centers throughout this area which has been an education and a blessing. Every day is an opportunity for personal growth. The Lord has blessed her with two beautiful and successful daughters. Every achievement and all of Helen’s numerous rewards are due to her faith in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
If you are interested in buying or selling a farm, ranch, country home, home in town, horse property, hunting land or other Lifestyle Property in the Lebanon market area, give Helen a call!
