Owner / Broker / Asset Manager

I was born and raised in Lafayette, Indiana. My wife Sarah and I have 2 amazing children, Isabella and Arie. My hobbies include coin collecting, writing, economics and spending time with my family. 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. The start of my management career was in retail and later in real estate as an Asset Manager. That was 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. That is why my business partner and I started this company, to take each of our strengths and experiences to help as many people as possible.

Owner / Operations Mgr. / Photographer

The classes I took during my Bachelor’s & Master’s relating to marketing, promoting, training, business, psychology & photography were my favorites! That along with my 20+ years of managing restaurants, teaching, and developing training for businesses have created a strong foundation for my venture into Property Management & Realty. During my time in the restaurant business, I had such a strong interest in photography that I started doing my own work taking pictures of food, people, events, and more. I have been paid for my photography since 2007. 

In 2018, I decided to join Elite. Our team’s goal is to take the properties we manage along the ones you’re investing/selling and make them shine above the rest, giving everyone the best idea of what we/you have to offer! If you’re looking to rent/buy/invest/sell, we can help! Credit isn’t perfect? That’s ok! We have specialists to help with that too! We look forward to hearing how we can be there for you!

Owner / Broker

I’ve worked in Real Estate since 2006 when I left Best Buy as a Department Manager to start as a Sales Counselor for C.P. Morgan, an Indianapolis Home Builder. I worked for them until they closed their doors during the housing crisis that plagued our nation.  After working for another builder, Arbor Homes in Lafayette, I branched out into traditional Real Estate sales at Keller Williams. I started selling and listing homes. I then was able to manage over the years to buy and flip 11 homes, buy 4 rental properties and learn to to self direct money in IRAs into Real Estate.  In 2018 I left Keller Williams and decided to open up my own Real Estate Brokerage, Elite Property Management & Realty. Now I, along with my business partners, have a team of agents behind us, a crew of home builders, construction specialists, including a handyman for that home project that you’re looking to do. We currently manage over 100 properties and can assist with rentals, new home purchases, resales, or investment homes. We can even help you manage your properties or start to get you on the path to build that portfolio. I’m here to help and be of service in any way I can.

Broker (Indiana & Florida)

Like my father before me, I became interested in a real estate career early on in my life. My 37 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 25 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!

Managing Broker

I have been in real estate since 1996, sharing my experience, knowledge and guidance with buyers and sellers of all types. Past experience includes but not limited to, First time homebuyers, corporate relocation, estate sales, foreclosure sales, investors and most recently, strategic planning with sellers in this low inventory market. My experience helps both buyers and sellers negotiate effectively!  I am a problem solver and a “think outside of the box” agent.

Office Assistant / Leasing Agent

Lana - Web PNG - JUL 2020

Hi, My name is Lana. Although I have worked in property management for over 20 years, things are constantly changing. Every day can be an adventure, exciting, & I must say, can be a little stressful on occasion, but also very rewarding.

I am a widow with 5 grown children, 14 grand children & 2 great grandchildren. We have a lot of fun when we get together. My part time hobbies are painting, gardening, floral design, making jewelry, sewing & laughing with family & friends.

Elite Property Management & Realty is a great company to work for. It would be a pleasure to have you stop in. We offer apartments, duplexes, condos and houses. Our Real Estate team can also assist in buying a home. Quiet often people qualify to buy & do not even realize it. Thank you for taking the time to check us out!



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.
