Welcome

My name is Chris Thompson. I was born and raised in Geneseo, Illinois and graduated from Geneseo High school. I started my career in construction at a local construction company called Hazelwood Homes as a Coop student, continued there as a carpenter for 4 years while I took my apprenticeship which brought me into the union as a journeyman carpenter. Since that time, I have worked as a union carpenter, owned and operated my own General Contracting company in which we built new homes, room additions and more. When I came back to the union 10 years later, I became a superintendent, and am now a Project Manager for a reputable General Contracting company based in Bettendorf, Iowa. I now have over 27 years experience in the construction field, along with over 20 years of rental property and property management experience. I have decided to put my experience in the construction field and real estate ownership/management to good use as a real estate agent. I love working with people and helping them through the process of buying or selling their homes. There is nothing like the feeling I get when I see the smile on a client's face at the closing table!! Let me know what I can do to help you!
