The Eckhardt Team
WE ARE THE ECKHARDT TEAM: We will provide hands-on service to buyers & sellers who are navigating the world of real estate. Whether you are considering home ownership for the first time or in the market for your forever home we are here to manage the process while you make all the decisions.
Real estate is the second career for both us: Sean retired from military service after 26 years, serving in both the ARMY & NAVY (1985-2011) many of those years he spent as a military recruiter. Knowing his personality as a strong negotiator and problem solver, a family friend suggested real estate to him. He found his home at Ruhl & Ruhl Realtors in 2011. As the business grew so did his need for assistance, so keeping it in the family he recruited me to form our team. In 2017, I "retired" from 23 years in education where I was a teacher, counselor, and coach. As a husband & wife team we are grounded in our integrity and a strong desire to help you become the best version of YOU!
We are family and the Quad Cities is our home. We have raised our four children in the Quad Cities on both sides of the river. We have lived in Rock Island, Davenport, Bettendorf, Eldridge, and the Rock Island Arsenal. Our children have been involved in athletics, choir, band, drama, and other school, church, and community organizations. In our free time we enjoy traveling, reading, golfing, riding our Harley, volunteering in our community, and being "Papa" and "Normi" to our beautiful granddaughters.
"Home ownership is the cornerstone of a strong community." (Renzi) Together we can make the Quad Cities the best place to live!!!
