  About Me

A Little Bit About Me:

As a Bloomington native, our downtown area and its locally-owned and operated businesses are very precious to me.  However, there are a few other locally-owned businesses that I also have a great appreciation for, even though they are outside of Bloomington/Normal (but still within a very short drive).  I LOVE to go out to eat (as do most McLean County residents), and I make a strong effort to frequent only locally-owned restaurants.  If you would like to know a few of my favorite places, visit my "Nick's Picks" page!

Why hire me...?

Real estate has always interested me.  I have been fascinated by the impact of real estate trends on the economy, and vice versa, for as long as I can remember.  From residential to investment and commercial, I have spent over twenty years in the real estate industry.

I obtained my Illinois Real Estate Broker's License many years ago, and later upgraded to a Managing Broker's License, putting me in the top five percent (5%) of all licensed agents in the entire State (I was also one of the first to earn this higher license classification)!  In that time, I have enjoyed studying the trends, and watching and helping the industry evolve into what will become a more stable pillar of the American business world, as well as the local economy.  Eventually, I even obtained my Real Estate Instructor's Licenses for pre-license (helping others learn the business to become agents) and for continuing education (training other licensed agents).  That puts me in the top point two percent (0.2 %) of all licensed agents in the entire state, clearly establishing me as an EXPERT in the field!

Community Involvement...

Over the years, I have served my community in the many capacities.  To list only a few:
• Board Member of Bloomington-Normal Association of Realtors (also served on several committees)
• Board Member and Vice-President of the Old House Society of McLean County for many years (also served on several committees)
• Board Member of the McLean County Apartment Association
• President of the Central Illinois Landlord Association
• Very active with Bloomington City Council and other government issues!
• Very active with Downtown Bloomington activities and events!
• Member - Association of Illinois Real Estate Educators (AIREE)
• Member - Real Estate Educators Association (REEA)

Industry Achievements & Designations...

I hold a CHMS®; certification, as well as an NAR e-Pro® certification, and I am one of only a select few SFR® (certified short-sale) agents in the area. Additionally, I am one of the only agents in the area to earn the prestigious ABR® designation. Naturally, I also have the GRI® designation.

My long history of property management and business management, including the development of large commercial properties throughout Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, and Missouri, has allowed me to hone my skills in many different areas, while my roots (and my heart) have remained right here in Bloomington-Normal.

Whether you are selling your current home to buy a new home, looking for the next amazing investment project, or staking your claim to part of the World as you begin the search for your very first home, you may feel very overwhelmed.  That's where I come in!  My strong educational background in the real estate field, combined with over two decades of hands-on experience in the industry, gives you access to a powerful set of tools.  When you decide to engage in a real estate transaction, I will put my wealth of knowledge and years of experience (and my list of business contacts) to work for you.  By taking care of the buying/selling process for you, I will alleviate the stress and ease the tension, making the experience much more pleasant, and allowing you to focus on what matters most to you...   ...your life!

As the owner and team lead of Main Street Brokers, I have a passionate desire to help you along the path of your real estate endeavors.  My job is to make it EASY.

I'm Nick Butzirus, and I'm not just "a" real estate broker...   ...I'm YOUR real estate broker!

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me.  I look forward to meeting you soon!
