Broker -CNE,

Nancy TrucksThanks for allowing me to assist you with your housing needs.

After 36 years as a Financial Manager with the federal government, I decided it was time for a change. I have always enjoyed real estate...decorating, looking at homes, HGTV...well, I'm addicted. Becoming a real estate professional just made sense, and I am ready to assist you with your real estate needs.

Buying or selling a home should not be difficult. As a real estate professional, my goal is to guide you through the process as smoothly as possible. I won't gurantee miracles, but I will do my best to help you achieve your goals in buying or selling your home. I enjoy working with everyone from first time buyers, to seasoned home owners, to investors, and have the resources and experience to get you where you need to be. 

I am a member of the Greater Gateway Association of Realtors, National Association of Realtors, and the Illinois Association of Realtors. I feel blessed to have been awarded the Bronze Award in my first year as a Real Estate Broker. 

I am a life-long resident of the metro east area and currently reside in Godfrey with my husband, Clyde. We have 3 beautiful daughters and 6 1/2 spoiled grandchildren. While much of my free time is centered on family, I am also a Cardinals baseball fan. Giving back is very important to me...with a special passion and support for Smile Train, ALS and the Siteman Breast Cancer Center and Gateway to Hope. 

Feel free to contact me with any real estate questions you may have. I look forward to working with you!

My father and I started a local real estate investment company which gave me first-hand knowledge of how complicated and exhausting finding a home can be. I acquired my realestate license in order to help the community realize how wonderful and thriving the River Bend area is. My goal is not to help you find your next house but to help you find your home and make it as easy and fun as it should be! 

I have lived in the Godfrey/Alton area most of my life and am heavily involved within the community as well as sit on several local committees. I know the area well and can help you locate a home that fits you. 

Feel free to contact me at any time and let's make this journey as exciting as it should be!
