Hello, I am Stephanie Simmons. I live on the Mighty Mississippi. I have five children and three beautiful grandchildren. I currently hold my real estate license in both Iowa and Illinois and I am also working on my third license as I want to relocate next year. I became a real estate agent as it is something I had wanted to do for many years and unfortunately was directed in other directions on all spectrums for quite some time and was told by many I could not do it. I am involved in real estate because a house is a place to build traditions, memories, a place to laugh and cry but, most importantly, at the end of the day to have a place to call home. I want to help others have that dream. Every day is a new day and every day you learn something new whether it be about people. or the process involved with homeownership and that is why I do what I do.
