A FALLEN LOCAL HERO - R. I. P. Tomorrow at ten o'clock in the morning, a young American soldier, United States Air Force Senior Airman Bradley Smith, will be buried in Troy, Illinois.  He was one of the casualties in a bombing in Kandahar, Afghanistan last January 3, 2010. Yesterday afternoon, his remains were flown in to Scott Air Force Base.  From there, a motorcade passed through Troy, Illinois-- his hometown, to Irwin Chapel, in Glen Carbon.  Hours before the motorcade more than 100 local volunteers planted American flags along Main Street, a business district in Troy. Hundreds of people in spite of the weather, lined the streets to welcome and pay their respects to one of our local heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  Airman Smith is survived by his wife, his ba...

I toured two very nice bank-owned houses in Troy, Illinois today. Both are new construction and new to the market. All that is missing is your offer. The first (pictured right) is listed for $239,000. It offers four bedrooms, three baths and 2,540 square feet of living space. The interior painted in neutral colors. Its kitchen is loaded with an abundance of attractive cherry cabinets and a planning desk. A fireplace warms the great room and there is a formal dining room for entertaining. Gleaming hardwood floors have been installed throughout much of the main level, along with soft carpets in the living room and bedrooms and tile in the master bath. That's where you'll find a corner soaking tub, separate shower and his & hers closets.  The full basement is ready to be finished. A three-...

The Just Ducky Homes Team enjoyed the culmination of a great buying experience this week when one of our clients closed on his new home. Helping first-time homebuyers realize their dream of home ownership is one of my favorite things. They're almost always excited, sincere, a little scared and very grateful to have someone on their side during the process. It makes me feel good to provide counsel and guidance to someone just starting out and to look out for their interests in locating the right property and negotiating the purchase. That said, my most recent buyer client was a standout among standouts. We first met when he called with a request to look at a house that ultimately didn't meet his needs.  So we had a detailed chat about what he really wanted in a new home, including specif...

The city of Troy, Illinois is 15 miles northeast of downtown St. Louis. Located at the crossroads of Interstate 55, Illinois Route 162, and U.S 40; Troy's location has played a key role in its history and present growth. Troy Il is located 15 miles north of Scott AFB. Troy offers a continuing population growth with a mixture of "new and old families", a highly rated school system, and a broadening community support system. Our population has grown from 3,694 in 1980 to an estimated 9,000 residents in 2000.
