"After purchasing Eagle Ridge Realty in 2007, the Real Estate market went into a tail spin.  With hard working, dedicated agents we were able to survive the downturn.  Today we are one of the top Real Estate companies not only in our market but in our MLS which extends all the way to include Freeport, IL.  I am very happy to be associated with this group of brokers that help make Eagle Ridge Realty’s future look extremely promising.  Our expertise is primarily focused inside The Galena Territory, but it doesn’t stop there, in fact it  extends beyond the border of The Territory to include second home land, commercial and residential town and farm properties.  We pride ourselves for meeting the needs of those we serve because we are Eagle Ridge Realty."
