Misty has spent the last couple of decades working as a corporate senior manager. She was the founding member of Grand River Jackpot, the third-largest Video Game Terminal Operator in Illinois, which sold for over $100 million back in 2019. Additionally, she and Leonard own multiple businesses throughout the Metro East area focused on education, real estate, and agricultural services. Leonard, Misty’s brother, has spent a considerable amount of his professional career working in customer relations management and the hospitality industry.

Both owners have been Illinois residents for life. Misty is a member of Glen Ed Chamber of Commerce and Troy Chamber of Commerce. While she’s not busy working, she enjoys traveling, spending time with family, and helping out with youth sports activities.

The Edwardsville Sunbelt office will be serving both Madison and St. Clair County and nearby areas. The region is the second-largest urban area in the state of Illinois, with over 700,000 residents. The vibrant and growing economy offers potential for both prospective buyers and sellers alike.
