From a young age, I have loved working with people and all things real estate; I feel blessed to be able to do this each day. Having been a broker for well over a decade and an auctioneer for part of that, I have seen a lot of changes in the industry, but one thing stays the same: people want to be treated honestly and fairly. That is something we have built our business on, and I look forward to continuing to serve our community in this way.

Marketing Director
I enjoy photography, organization, design, and all things home – mix that with some business & marketing education and you have my role here at RES. If you are ever in our office, it’s likely you’ll see me working away to create all sorts of things for our office & clientele.

Office Administrator
I have lived in several parts of the country and have been in Indiana since middle of 2023. I love details, organization, and good conversations over a cup of coffee, and I’m happy to apply all of that here in the office as I get to know the community and its people more.

Having always lived in Syracuse, Indiana, I thrive on being able to make those common small-town connections and work with a client-based focus. I have a natural talent for creating order, and I live by the motto: 'quality numbers is quality service'. I'm happy to contribute to the team and support our office behind the scenes.

I’ve been an auctioneer for a while now & wanted to bring more value to clients by becoming a broker. 20+ years in manufacturing has taught me that learning is useless if not applied. I love to meet people and am driven to win the best deal.

I have lived in Shipshewana for most of my life with my husband, Brad. We really enjoy the rural Northeast Indiana lifestyle. Previously, I owned and operated my own business. After selling in 2002, I got my real estate license. Flash forward to now and I still love what I do!

My wife, Lovina, and I reside near Middlebury. Growing up on a farm in LaGrange gave me a love for the land. I also appreciate architecture, design, & what makes a house a home. My mission is to show the Kingdom of God through the practice of real estate.

Growing up on a farm near Yoder, Kansas taught me the value of hard work at a young age. This prepared me for years of working in skilled trades and the unique challenges each presented. In 2003, I moved to Elkhart County and married my sweetheart — five children later, life has never been better or busier. Even so, I’m committed to helping those around me achieve their real estate goals.

I grew up in Shipshewana! My daughter is attending Westview schools, where my mom, Cynthia, and I both graduated from. After graduating, I decided to continue my education and have earned a master’s degree in business administration. It means so much to me to be able to work closely with my mom, and the time we spend together helping our community is incredible.

I am a semi-retired farmer who enjoys being out in nature and meeting people. You have probably seen me either setting signs around our client’s properties or at some of our live auctions!

I live in Shipshewana with my wife and five children. I have enjoyed doing auctions since 2010 when I became a licensed auctioneer. I enjoy meeting with people and guiding them through the liquidation process. My favorite part of what I do has got to be auction day!
