I am ecstatic about starting my new career in real estate with RE/MAX Rising and the Armstrong-Burns Home Selling Team. Armstrong-Burns was ranked the top team in sales in the St. Louis Region in 2017 with over 350 homes sold. We are a very customer service driven team. We use innovative technology to help us find the perfect house to meet our clients needs and desires. I bring with me 14 years experience as an educator in the McLean County Unit 5 school district. In my teaching experience I have learned to be patient, proactive and detail-oriented. Teaching has allowed me to collaborate and communicate with a large variety of people and personalities. Just like in education, where the students’ best interest comes first, I believe in putting my clients first and doing what’s best for them. I am excited about meeting new people and helping clients find the right house to call home! I still remember the feeling of walking into my home with my husband, Wes, and 4 children and thinking, “this is the one!” I hope to be able to provide the same experience to my clients. I grew up in a small, rural Illinois town spending a lot of time outdoors and playing a variety of sports which led me to Eastern Illinois University. At EIU I received my bachelor’s degree in physical education while competing on the Women’s track and field team for 4 years. I also received a Master’s degree in Sports Administration from EIU. I am an athlete and competitor by heart and enjoy staying active with my family and attending our children’s athletic events. In my free time I also enjoy reading, drawing and painting, and loving on our English bulldog, Coco. I have been a Bloomington-Normal resident for 15 years. I understand the numerous benefits of living in such a vibrant community that has so much to offer! No matter what my clients needs are, my goal is to provide them with the best home buying or selling experience in the fabulous B-N area as possible!
