Greg Meyer - Denbesten Real Estate

Real estate is a second career to me, but one to which I have devoted a great deal of my time and energy.  Along with all of our office, I have made a commitment to personal service.  Listening carefully to your needs and using the tools we can bring to bear on your home search will be the watchwords of our agency to you.  We are not about volume; but rather gauge our success on the friends we make from amongst our clients as we help you find the perfect home for your family.

I have spent 30 years in the “people business” of sales and marketing.  Early in my career I honed the analytical tools that I now use to understand our market and how that market translates into your new home search.  I grew up and attended college in Ohio.  I worked for an international marketing company for 28 years in Ohio and then Minnesota.  Luckily they transferred me here to Bloomington-Normal 15 years ago as we have found Central Illinois has much to offer to our family. I am a member of National Association of Realtors, Illinois Association of Realtors, and Bloomington-Normal Association of Realtors.

My two daughters thrived in the excellent school systems of our community and are now away at college.  Unit Five schools prepared them well for college, but Bloomington’s award-winning District 87 schools provide an interesting rivalry.  In sports, when you throw in a catholic school and a lab school attached to Illinois State University we have some intense battles on turf and court.

My wife of 27 years has been part of the school system here in Bloomington and Normal for years in pre-schools as well as working with special needs kids but has chosen to do something different for a time and is a manager at a clothing store in one of our local shopping malls.

My interests over the years have been in volunteer/board work with the Bloomington Library, Habitat for Humanity and Recycling Furniture for Families, a local furniture bank.  I am an usher at my church and have spent a good bit of time over at Illinois State University, as a student in the History department and a teacher in the College of Business.

I look forward to being a part of this next big step in your life.  Moving is an adventure.  I would love to add your search for a home in Bloomington or Normal to the list of satisfied customers who have become friends of my family.

EDIT:  In April 2014, Greg was offered a position as the Executive Director at Illinois Prairie Community Foundation.  He was excited for this opportunity.  We supported his decision to further his personal and professional goals.  We wish him well, hope only the best for him, and thank him for his time in our office.  He will be missed in our office.
