adambsellsrealestate@gmail.com

I graduated college in 2001 with a degree in electrical mechanics and began working at Armour Foods meat processing plant. I worked my way up to become the youngest Union President to be elected into office at the age of 28. I moved to the Land of Lincoln in 2009 for a job transfer. In early 2015, budget cuts caused a relocation in the position. So I began transitioning to a Real Estate Broker/Agent. This change proved to be successful and clever. My tenacity, knowledge of negotiation skills, friendly personality, fresh understanding of the latest rules and regulations of the Real Estate market and eagerness to succeed in my new career, is going to make me a great choice as your Realtor to buy or sell a home!

As a real estate professional, I have had the pleasure of helping buyers and sellers achieve their dreams for the past 10 years. Nothing provides me with greater satisfaction than helping my clients. Happy clients make me happy!! Whether buying or selling, you need someone that will listen to you and understands the industry in order to achieve your goals! I pride myself on negotiation skills that allow my clients to be represented in the best possible way! Prior to my real estate career, I was a nationally certified kitchen and bathroom designer and worked as a project manager for a construction company so it seemed natural that my knowledge of the structure of a house would be beneficial in selling houses-not to mention my last name is House!!

I will guide you through every step of the home buying and selling process. Real Estate is my FULL TIME job (passion) which allows me to provide a very personal and hands on commitment to you. I have closed hundreds of properties and have extensive knowledge of the Springfield Illinois and surrounding areas. My goal is to help you sell for the highest price and to negotiate the best price on your new home. I too, have moved many times from across town to across country and I understand the emotions, frustration and excitement that come with every move. I have extensive experience and knowledge working with those relocating, relocation companies, Veterans, first time buyers, Senior buyer and sellers and those moving up or downsizing. From your FIRST HOME to your DREAM HOME and EVERY MOVE in between I can guide you through the process. Change is inevitable but it doesn't have to be hard. My clients are my best referrals for my services. I would be happy to provide a list of references at your request. Or you can read all reviews on my Zillow Premier Agent site. LET'S WORK TOGETHER!

Springfield has been my home town my entire life and I know the market well.  I started my real estate career in 1998 after working for a local financial institution.  Throughout my career, I received numerous awards that included the #1 top producing single agent for homes sold, top 10 agents in the Illinois and Missouri region, and also received the prestigious Hall of Fame Award.  I continued my education by obtaining my broker's license, became a Certified Residential Specialist, and have graduated from the Realtor Institute (a designation that ranks me in the top 4% of real estate agents nationwide). I was also recently recognized as the "The Best Realtor" by Illinois Times for 2013, 2014 and again in 2017! As the business grew, I formed the Winchester Sales Team.  This consists of an administrative assistant and two full time agents.

jane@janehay.com

Jane Hay’s business success is a direct result of her can-do positive attitude, high energy work ethic, and long-term vision for a real estate business that incorporates both free home staging and excellent customer service. Jane’s diverse background in the fields of business operations, project management, and customer relations helped to mold her unique approach to traditional real estate sales. “When I entered the real estate business, I wanted to do something no one else was doing. I wanted to make sure my listings stood out in a way that got them sold quickly,” Jane recalls. “It’s not enough to put a sign in the yard, ad in the paper, and wait and see what happens. I wanted each and every one of my listings to be professionally prepared for sale so that the home would appeal to the most amount of buyers and generate the highest price in the least amount of time on the market.” Home staging has helped her do this. Prior to Jane’s real estate career, she served as a project assistant for the Secretary of State’s office and served on Illinois State Treasurer, Judy Baar Topinka’s executive staff. Jane also served as office administrator/paralegal for Wolter, Beeman, & Lynch Law Offices.

Originally from Macomb, I have lived in Springfield for nearly 20 years during which time I worked as Event and Promotion Coordinator for Downtown Springfield, Inc. and Director of External Relations for the Illinois Grape Growers and Vintners Association. I received my B.S. in Recreation, Park and Tourism Administration from Western Illinois University and a M.S. in Communication from the University of Illinois at Springfield. I recently completed the coursework to become a Certified Negotiation Expert. I currently serve as the Chair of Westminster Cooperative Preschool and the Children’s Tent at the 2019 Old Capitol Art Fair. I’m also a member of the WUIS 91.9 Campus and Community Advisory Council. My husband, Chris and I have three young sons and are enjoying all the joys (and challenges) of parenthood as well as our old hobbies of cooking, spending time with friends , enjoying the outdoors, and traveling, though much less and closer to home now. Give me a call to help find your next home or list your property!

I LOVE Real Estate! Period. I come from an entire family of real estate salespeople and my parents, Pat and Betty Grady, owned and operated our family firm, Grady Realtors Inc. since 1969. It's in my blood! I grew up showing houses with my parents and listening in on appointments! I went to college to become an art teacher, got my degree and began teaching high school art for four years right out of college. I decided to take the real estate course and get my license to work part time after school hours and in the summers. After two years of working both jobs, I left teaching to pursue my career in real estate full time! Luckily, I have been able to use my creative mind every day since leaving teaching art. I have always been very active in community service volunteering time and also received a Community Service Award nominated by my peers of the Capitol Area Realtors. I have most recently served on the Board of Directors for the Springfield Old Capitol Art Fair, Springfield Art Association, Vachel Lindsay Association Board of Directors, the St. Patrick's Day Parade Board, the Junior League of Springfield, and was VIP for the United Cerebral Palsy and Muscular Dystrophy Association, and a regular volunteer for Christ The King School. I also was one of Springfield's first accredited staging professionals and I will always work closely with sellers to stage their home for a fast and prosperous sale! Moving is STRESSFUL!!! Each time I have moved I have grown a whole new appreciation for the hard work behind getting ready for the market to sell, and finding a home that is perfect for my family! I empathize in the stress that goes on behind the scenes! You may be selling your first home you brought babies home to, maybe you are upgrading to a bigger home, maybe you are selling your last home or even your parents home, a job relocation, family tragedy, financial reasons, the list goes on and on why we move. So... how about a no nonsense aggressive agent with a heart? I want to take some of the stress off your worry list! I feel a tremendous amount of responsibility to my sellers and buyers and I am committed to hard work and dedication every step of the way! This is a team effort and I am committed to cross the finish line with you!!!

In 2013 I joined the #1 office in the greater Springfield area, The Real Estate Group, Inc.

My background in the building trades along with my dedication, exceptional customer service, and contagious passion for Real Estate are the cornerstones of my success. God has graciously blessed my efforts and I have achieved many awards and accomplishments throughout my career, but the greatest achievements of my life and the recipients of my greatest love are my two sons, Tom and Mitch, and my beautiful grandchildren, Liberty, Alexis, Hunter, and Benji!
