My name is Dan DePorter. I am 61 years old and have been selling real estate since the 1985. Having been raised on a farm and schooled in the city. I have friends and acquaintances in town and in the country. This puts me in a position of having many contacts and much experience in the Quad Cities with residential properties and in the country with acreages, wells, and sewers.
I am single and the Father of Megan who is married to Bobby Kapsidis. They live in AZ, and Megan is retired military while Bobby is working with or as a Government Contactor. I have 2 Granddogs, Milo & Sully, by them and I understand that efforts are being made to make me a Grandpa. They make me proud and are truly a great gift from God today and I pray their dreams come true.
My youngest child is Jon who is in a relationship with Rob Iannucci. (I don't understand the same sex attraction thing), but I know that Jon has alot of gifts to offer the world and I love him as he is a great gift from God. He is a smart, funny and talented young man who isn't afraid to lead and who doesn't live to make the world happy. He is currently finishing up his post graduation classes to get his Masters Degree. Both Megan & Jon are raised and are out changing the world in their own ways.
I have always been and still am active in Church & Community. I have a strong faith that gets stronger daily and I believe in giving back to my community. I have been a 4-H leader, a Jaycee, a Sacristan at church where I am on the Stewardship comitee and am a member of the Knights of Columbus.
I am also on a couple of committees at the QCARA working on community events and promotion of the real estate industry in our area.
In Real Estate, some agents sell specific properties in specific areas. I have been fortunate to be asked to sell real estate in Rock Island, Henry and Mercer Counties in Illinois. My license is in Illinois and I go anywhere in the state, but my service contacts and experiences working with the governments in these 3 counties is where I try to stay. If I go further, I am more concerned about me than my client. I have sold farms for millions of dollars, I have sold homes with acreages for $80,000 to over $500,000, and I have sold homes on subdivided lots for $20,000 to $400,000.
As I have grown in the real estate field, my mind set has gone from making lots of money to how can I best serve my client. It works better being concerned abot service to my client. It is more gratifying and I have had more success with this mind set.
I have to credit Ruhl & Ruhl for moving me to this change and there big push to their agents is definitely service.
I also dabble in the Auction business and so you might see an auction online at DePorterauction.com or in the newspaper on Thursday & Sunday.
My life is busy, and enjoyable. I enjoy the work I do, and most especially the people I meet and help buy and/or sell their property..
That's about all I can think of. If you have uestions about this Biography or how I can help you, please call me at 309- 738- 9333.
