About Elite

MEET KEVIN McCRAW

My name is Kevin McCraw and I am a life long resident of West Lafayette, IN. I went to Purdue University and came out of it with a mixed expectation of what I wanted to do in life and luckily fell into Real Estate by chance and I love it! I’ve watched Lafayette and West Lafayette grow over the years to what it has become today and it has been quite the boom. Where I grew up was nothing but acres of cornfields that are now hundreds if not thousands of single family homes. I’ve seen forests and farms become highways, swamps become department stores, weed patches become apartment buildings. Everyday more and more growth continues as home production and prices continue to rise. Since 2006 I have been in the Real Estate industry and I truly love it and have a passion that drives me . In those years, I have had the privilege of working with numerous builders and helped people design and build their new dream home. I’ve helped sellers achieve over and above asking price numerous times, helped investors find cash flowing rentals, helped take distressed homes from ruin to riches through complete restoration and to this day, every day continues to be a new adventure.

In the early part of 2005 I purchased my first duplex. This was in addition to my own home that I had built in 2001. I started my career in property management here and purchased a house on Queen Street in Lafayette soon after. Later, I purchased another duplex. I’ve been able to keep these units rented and profiting each year and maintain a high customer satisfaction rating. However, it was in 2006 that I began my career with an Indianapolis Builder, CP Morgan. Soon after that the market in Real Estate crashed. Despite the crash, I learned in dire times how to qualify buyers and show them the best available home loan programs that would best serve their needs, whether it be a no money down program, grant program, or something else. Throughout 2006 and until CP Morgan went bankrupt, like so many other good builders, I was able to make a very good career and help many clients become homeowners or happy renters. I was recruited immediately by another builder after CP Morgan was dissolved; Arbor Homes. It was until 2012 I worked for builders but saw so many missed opportunities and decided to go out on a limb and work for myself as a Realtor. I did this and worked in Indy for 123 My First Home and was actually going to fly out to SC and open my own franchise but decided to do even more and flip houses locally.

MEET RYAN GRISWOLD

My name is Ryan Griswold. I was born in 1980 in Lafayette, Indiana. I graduated from Harrison High School and went on to attend and graduate from Purdue University. Continuing my education, I then achieved a Master’s Degree in Business at IWU. I started my management career in retail and later in real estate as an Asset Manager. That is when I realized my passion for the business. Having managed hundreds of millions of dollars worth of real estate, I have experience from the front lines all the way to the top corporate decisions. Real estate has never felt like work to me, but rather a passion for helping people in the community find homes as well as helping fellow investors grow their portfolio. My wife Sarah and I have been married for 2 years and have 2 children, Isabella and Arie. My hobbies include coin collecting, writing, economics and spending time with my family.

MEET TODD K. MYERS

Hello, my name is Todd Myers. Like my father before me, I became interested in a real estate career early on in my life. My 35 years of real estate experience has taken me to various locales in Indiana and Florida. I’m currently licensed in both states. I’ve seen the best and worst of markets. If you can believe, my first year in the business interest rates were around 13-16%! Over the years I’ve helped buyers and sellers with transactions in residential, commercial and income properties. I accepted Kevin and Ryan’s offer to join Elite because of their market knowledge, experience and bountiful energy!  So whether you’re buying, selling or investing, please give me a call to jumpstart your positive experience.

I graduated from West Lafayette High School and Purdue University. My wife of 23 years and I enjoy the diversity that our University town offers. I’ve watched our community grow up to be a fine place to live and play. Go Boilers! We see exciting growth and opportunities for the foreseeable future, and we’re very pleased to be a part of it!

MEET Kim Thatcher

My name is Kim Thatcher. I have been an Indiana resident all my life and went to Ball State for my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, receiving Concentrations and Endorsements in Computers, Technology, and Science. Then I headed to Purdue to start my Master’s Degree in Educational Technology. The classes I took in marketing & promoting, business, & photography were my favorites! Before finishing my Master’s I moved to be closer to home during a family illness and ventured into restaurant management for 10 years. I have always had a passion for photography, capturing the moment, and highlighting people and things in a way others might not have thought of, so while I was in the restaurant business I started doing my own photography, taking pictures of food, bands, performances, family, and anything I could. I have been paid for my photography since 2007. After working my way around Indiana, living in Tipton, Muncie, Lafayette/West Lafayette, Kokomo, Clarksville, Terre Haute, and Indy, and then traveling around the state to visit friends and take pictures of bands in Indiana & Chicago, I have been internally pulled back to the wonderful city of Lafayette! It has everything to offer and I love it.

After meeting Ryan and Kevin and seeing the passion they have for not only the Property Management & Realty business, but also in helping people by finding their dream homes & the perfect place for them to either manage or rent, I decided to bring my strengths in management, design, technology, photography, and videography to the team. My goal is to take the properties we have and make them shine above the rest, giving everyone the best idea of what we have to offer! I’ll also be helping with the marketing and social media scene to get things moving as fast as possible for everyone to find their ideal place for them, whether it be buying, renting, or managing!

My name is Lana M Mabbitt. I have been in property management for over 20 years. One of my favorite things to do is show homes to prospective renters, sign leases, work with numerous vendors, and take photos of move out inspections. I work with the local housing assistance programs and very much enjoy staging units for models.

MEET KEITH MARTIN

KEITH

My name is Keith Martin. I have been in maintenance for 30 years and have flipped many properties in the Kokomo, IN area. I have also been hired as the sole contractor on other’s flip houses. Being a private landlord and a hired contractor to do repairs on multiple rental properties and flips have given me insight to what it takes to keep things above standard in a Property Management company. In addition to that, I have built a few different houses from the ground up, like the house I currently live in.
