I am an extremely proud owner and partner of PCRE Real Estate & Auction, Inc. Originally from upstate New York, I grew up an avid outdoorsman and student of whitetail deer and quality deer management.

My interest in that field led me to Mississippi State University in 2003, where I served under a graduate student on a vegetation study, and later became a videographer and editor at Mossy Oak Productions in West Point, MS. My 2 years at Mossy Oak allowed me the opportunity as a young man to travel North America and make a lifetime’s worth of contacts & connections, that ultimately led me to the whitetail capital of the world, Pike County, Illinois.

In 2008 I became an owner and partner at Pike County Real Estate, Inc. (which later became PCRE Real Estate & Auction, Inc.) where I specialize in selling hunting land and homes all throughout the surrounding area. I have developed a book of business full of buyers and sellers of some of the country’s finest deer hunting properties, many of which have become not only fantastic clients, but great friends as well.

Our real estate expertise at PCRE is absolutely second to none!! Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of our qualified brokers for all of your real estate needs!!
