Get to know Derek Mead
I was born in Bloomington, grew up in LeRoy, graduated from Tri-Valley High School and then Illinois State University. As much as I love to travel, this area has and always will be home to me, and it's that ideology that helps make me the right choice when finding the right home in the Bloomington-Normal area and McLean County. My wife Molly and I, our 1 year-old daughter Addison, and our dog Chloe Dancer and our cat Betty, live in Bloomington and honestly love everything about this place. Before beginning my career in real estate, I taught Jr High Learning Disabilities, and I have a been a part of the football coaching staff at LeRoy High School for over 13 years; this gave me a unique perspective to look at the real estate process in an educational light. Whether first-time homebuyers, people looking to upgrade, or emptynesters looking to downsize, each transaction is completely different and I love the opportunity to teach and coach along the way, all with the end result of a smooth successful experience.
Our Bloomington-Normal market is much too small to specialize in one area. Having grown up and lived my entire life in McLean County, I am blessed to have knowledge of the area that most agents don't have. Whether you're looking for city life in Bloomington or Normal, or looking to enjoy small-town living in towns such as LeRoy, Downs, or any of the countless places that make this county what it is, you can count on me for all of your real estate needs. From Hawthorne Hills to Tipton Trails, Pheasant Ridge to Fox Creek, Falcon Ridge, Sherwood, or any other, I have the experience, ability, and excitement to bring you the very best in the home-buying experience.
