Heather Witt

Real Estate Broker


I have experienced Central Illinois as a child, adolescent, college student and currently as a parent. Having been raised in the Bloomington-Normal area, I have a unique and deep seeded love for the community. Like many in town, I attended and received a degree from Illinois State University with a degree in Graphic Communication. When I’m not working, I stay busy raising my family and volunteering with the Mid Central Community Action as well as numerous schools in Bloomington-Normal. This love has tied me to Bloomington-Normal where I live and raise my three kiddos. I thrive round people and enjoy the puzzle of listening to every individual to help them find their dream home. Because of my artistic brain, I have a love of all things gardening and a vision for creating beautiful spaces. My big heart and fighting spirit allow me to be an ideal advocate for both my buyers and sellers.

Kyle Yap


License Number: 475.167043

Hi! I'm Kyle and I'm a full-time Realtor/Rockstar! I have the pleasure of working with the BEST clients! What sets me apart is my attention to detail. When I start working with a new client, one of the first things I do is go over how a real estate transaction works. We go over everything from specific verbiage in the contract, disclosures, inspections, appraisals, lenders and all the way down to switching over utilities... I make sure you feel 100% confident in the process so the only thing left to do is get you SOLD ! I am also a real estate investor locally. I currently focus single family rentals and soon some multiplex properties. I'm also a full time musician! I play 100+ shows every year at music venues, theaters, clubs, farmers markets, weddings - you name it, I've played it! I've had a passion for small business and marketing for a long time and it's helped me have some great success in my real estate career. Give me a call! Whether you're buying or selling I can help get you HOME! For more info on my music career, check out kyleyap.com

Melissa Sorensen


A lifelong resident of Illinois, I moved to Bloomington/Normal in 1997 to attend Illinois State University. I fell in love with the community and from that moment on, have been proud to call it my home. Since then I've worked in the animal health industry and served as a youth volleyball coach. My love for animals and kids will endure, but my real passion is to help people find the home of their dreams. And I know I can do it for you. My commitment to providing you with the best possible customer service, combined with the marketing power of the Armstrong Burns & Co. Home Selling Team, the #1 Real Estate Team in McLean County, guarantees that you will have best experience possible in your Real Estate transaction.

Ryan Kendrick



I left a kush corporate job and all the securities that come with it to pursue a career where no two days are the same and a paycheck is never guaranteed. My work ethic and determination separate me from other real estate agents where my goal is to earn your business. I don't expect it. I want to earn it! All I need is the opportunity. I'm unconventional in my thought process which leads to innovative marketing and more potential buyers through your door! My buyer clients have continually reaped the benefits of my successful negotiations, almost always starting their home ownership with instant equity in their new property. My clientele is diverse and have included investors, first-time homebuyers, sellers, FSBO's and the like. I have extensive experience in contract interpretation and put those skills to work for my clients. Give me a call/text/email and let me know how I can earn your business! ? **For the toned down biography you probably expected, keep reading below** ? I am a Central Illinois native and resident of Bloomington, IL. Before venturing into Real Estate, I had been recognized by multiple corporate entities as a top producing salesperson, team leader, and innovative thinker. I currently hold several state licenses and continue to build industry acumen through continuing education, ongoing training and everyday life experiences. My success, I believe, can be traced to a strong work ethic, a personal expectation to get things right, and a burning desire to continue to personally and professionally grow. ? As a husband to my lovely wife Kristi and a father of two (Caden, Avery), I am active in the lives of my family and community. Currently, I hold a position on my community HOA and coach baseball at Tri-Valley. In addition to those duties, I volunteer as a coach with Game-Time Gym and Eastview Christian Church’s Upward program. Since 2002, I have been volunteering with multiple sporting activities, associations, and community organizations. Volunteering and contributing to my community is extremely rewarding and I feel that it is also my obligation when I am able to do so. I received my B.S. in Business Management at Webber International University and my passions and interests include family, DIY challenges, sports and technology.

If your a dog person, I'm the Realtor for you. I have 2 bernese mountain dogs(Dexter and Lavern) who are like my children. I have been to 13 different countries and love to travel. Not many people can say the love there job, but I can! How many professions can you say you get the satisfaction and trust to help someone with the biggest purchase of their lives. I don't like the word client, I prefer friends who I work with either to sell their home or to find their new home or even better when it's both(those are really good friends). I have never met a stranger and enjoy making my job fun for all involved. I love all sports especially college football and can't pass on a good trip to Wrigley to watch my beloved Cubs. I'm always trying to make new friends, so let me help you with your Real Estate needs and become your friend.

Shannon Smith


License Number: 475.164232

I could give you the standard REALTOR® bio…I will fight for my clients, I’ve sold a million homes, I’m married with kids, I love my dogs…blah, blah, blah. All the things in those standard bios are probably 100% true, but I decided I wanted something a little different. Here is where I veer off course. Instead of telling you all the things I will do for you, I am going to tell you the things that I will not do. I think it will give you a much better understanding of who I really am. I will not be a “yes man”. I will not tell you things just because I think it is what you want to hear. I will not try to “talk you into” buying a house. If I think a house isn’t right for you, I will not be afraid to tell you why I feel that way. I will not tell you your home is worth more than it actually is just to get my sign in your yard only to turnaround and ask you to reduce the price 2 weeks later. I will not tell you that “I might already have a buyer for your home” just to get your listing. I will not list your home and then disappear, never to be heard from again. I will not be anything but honest! In the end, isn’t that the most important thing? We are not talking about buying a pair of shoes here. We are talking about what will most likely be the biggest financial investment of your life. Don’t you think it’s important to have honesty? Even if it’s not exactly what you want to hear? Being honest, to me, is always the right approach. If you want to know how many houses I’ve sold, just ask. I’ll tell you. If you want to know my whole life story…I am happy to share it. But I don’t want you to do business with me because of how many houses I’ve sold or because we both love our dogs. I want you to do business with me because you know that no matter what…I will be honest!

Hi there, I'm Amber Owens! I became a Realtor because I love building relationships and sharing in the joy as I help my clients fulfill their dreams.

As a life-long residence of Bloomington-Normal, I have a comprehensive understanding of the market. I value my clients' needs and I am eager to help them every step of the way. My family and I reside in LeRoy where my husband grew up. The community here is amazing. They love supporting others, whether its individually or small businesses. I am proud to be a part of it. My husband and I enjoy going to baseball games and visiting other ballparks. I am a Cubs fan, where he is a Cardinal fan. Although we may not see eye to eye during a Cubs vs. Cardinal game, our love for baseball makes our time together even more special. I am a mom to two girls and a bonus mom to three great kids, 2 girls and 1 boy. Five kids in the house can be a little crazy at times, but I wouldn't want it any other way. Five things you can count on from me are reliability, open communication, commitment, positivity, and love. I look forward to meeting you and helping in any way that I can!

Tim Tyler has been a McLean County native for over 50 years, growing up in Stanford he....... blah blah blah blah blah blah........wait a minute. You're not here to read about my life prior to real estate (even though it's pretty interesting), you're here because you're wondering about all my sales over the past 12 months. Mark Twain said it "find a job you enjoy doing and you will never have to work a day in your life". I enjoy this. I truly enjoy helping you find your next home or finding buyers for your current home. We work primarily in McLean, Livingston and Woodford County. Now let's talk about the Zillow reviews, I HATE asking for them. Heck, I hate asking new buyers I just met if they are pre-approved, let alone asking someone to give me a Zillow review. I look at it like this, I'll ask, if they review me great, if not that's fine too. I'm not going to bug them about it. When I hand them the keys to their new home and they thank me for helping them, that's what really counts. Ok, let's wrap this up. Want your home PROFESSIONALLY marketed, no dark and blurry cell phone pics, no short generic boring descriptions of your home? Call me. Want the power of RE/MAX marketing and worldwide brand recognition associated with the sale of your home? Call me. You want an agent that will answer the phone, return your calls, text messages and emails quickly? You get it by now, call me! We love hanging SOLD signs on our listings! And when it's time to call, you can reach me at 309-530-9003 or email me at tim@ttsoldit.com.

My Story

License Number: 475.183787

Hi! I’m Sarah former cheerleader and show choir participant at El Paso-Gridley High School home of the Titans! My team lead, McKenzie and I have known each other since Junior High cheering on the Titans at every basketball game. Now, instead of cheering on the Titans we are now cheering on each other! As you can say I had A LOT of school spirit! When I’m not working I really enjoy spending time with family. To me the kitchen always feels like the center of the home where you connect with your family. I knew the kitchen was going to be super important to me when I was looking for my first home. What is important to you when you are looking? As your REALTOR I will connect your wants and needs to your house, just like I did to mine. I married my high school sweetheart and we are living in our first home. I never knew that I could gain 13 koi fish with a house and maybe you could too. If you are looking to buy or sell, give me a call today and this small town girl will work hard for you.

McKenzie Sylvester



Hi there! I'm McKenzie and I grew up out in the country outside of El Paso. I went to Illinois State University and studied Ag Business. I knew while I was in college that I wanted to be involved in real estate and as a graduation present to myself, I signed up to take the class to become an agent. I can honestly say I LOVE what I do, every single day! I love meeting new clients and getting to know their families (and pets) and their specific needs. In my free time, I am at home with my two dogs Oakley & Benelli, working on the next home project, or hunting. In the fall, I try to spend as much time out in a tree stand as I can! Whether you are a first time home buyer, investor wanting to buy very frequently, or someone that only wants to make the big move once every 20 years, I am here for you!
