About Me

Hello. Thanks for viewing my biography page and getting to know me.

I'm a self- taught real estate Broker, consultant and real estate developer who has held a State of Illinois real estate license since 1993 and a Broker’s license since 1998. Most recently, I passed the managing broker test in April 2011.

I started as a private in the Illinois National Guard as an Infantryman in 1978. I was commissioned a second Lieutenant and am currently a retired Army Major. I left the Army in 1993 as an active duty Army Captain and began to teach ROTC at Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC). As a 28-year old Active Duty Army Captain, I helped start up and train the last PATRIOT Battalion in the U.S. Army at Ft. Bliss, TX and then moved to Bitburg, Germany, where I was responsible for 95 soldiers, 65 million dollars of equipment with a 10 million dollar budget. I held command of A Battery, 5/7 Air Defense Artillery PATRIOT at Ft. Bliss TX and Bitburg, Germany for twenty-six months. I served two tours of duty in Germany, one tour of duty at Ft. Bliss, Texas and one tour of duty in Saudi Arabia before coming to Southern Illinois. I hold a BS (1983) in Agribusiness from Illinois State University, Normal, IL and have taken master degree course work at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I also hold or have held many different real estate licenses and certificates.

Listed below are some of my other noteworthy accomplishments:

  1. Have taught real estate classes for over five years at John A. Logan College.
  2. Developed two subdivisions in the Carterville area and sold them out in record time.
  3. Started my own real estate development company called the Burghof Group, LLC in 2003 with one partner and $35,000 seed money.
  4. Own and manage Trails End Apartments in Carterville – a 26 unit complex on 7 + acres.
  5. Consults as a mentor to clients on how to get into buying rental property, managing rental property, upgrading these properties, helping them write business plans, find bankers, accountants and attorneys as well as contractors to help guide them through this process so they can become successful investors.
  6. Have done 1031 tax deferred exchanges for the Burghof Group, LLC as well as assisted other clients with these exchanges.
  7. Assisted clients to develop land, subdivisions, build multi-family units and build spec houses in the area.
  8. Am the past Grand Knight for the Carterville Knights of Columbus and a Charter member of the Carterville Area Rotary Club.
  9. Past president of the Carterville Chamber of Commerce.
  10. Currently serve as the Financial Secretary of the Carterville Knights of Columbus.

I look forward to working with all present and past clients with their residential buying and selling as well as investors and look forward to putting your success story on my future list of accomplishments. Give me a call today!

Keep Smiling!
