My name is Patrick Bevis. I am a life-long resident of Jefferson County. I have been married for the last 30 years to Cindy (Nadolski) Bevis. We have two daughters that live and work in Jefferson County and Mt. Vernon, plus 6 grand-kids. I have worked in the architecture and engineering field since attending Rend Lake College in the late 70’s. I also attended SIU-C where I studied architecture and engineering. I worked for several architects in this area, FGM, Inc., Watwood & Heavener, Inc., and Architectural Services, and Round Table Design. Plus I also have worked for McCoy and Howard Consulting Engineers, Inc. and Rend Lake Plumbing & Heating Co. Inc. I have experience in construction drawings, specifications, plumbing design, construction management, and my favorite area, 3D computer modeling and design. In the past few years, I had assisted my wife, Cindy, in the operation of her business, Bevis Real Estate LLC. I had my professional real estate license so that I could help her in the course of her work with the buying and selling the public. When she decided that she could better serve her clients by merging her office into the new Re/Max office, we jumped at the opportunity. Since she did not need my assistance at that time, we allowed my license to go inactive, but not expire. I have kept up with the real estate business, and when recently, due to the lack of work in my field, and not wishing to relocate from this area, we decided it was time for me to reactivate my license and work with my wife. Now it is time for us to go in a different direction and we have joined Deb Smith with King City Property Brokers, so that we may give our clients, even more, personal help and guidance through the process of buying or selling their home. We believe that they are not just buying a house, but are investing in their new home. I believe that my experience in the construction industry will only help me in the process of helping my clients find the best home for them, or to get the most out of their homes when they decide to sell them. Plus, I have the best real estate instructor in the area as my guide, my wife Cindy. I look forward to assisting the members of our community in the search for and process of purchasing their new homes, or the selling of their existing ones. I believe in treating my clients honestly as if they were a family member, and I subscribe to the NAR Realtor® Code of Ethics. I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, thus able to use the trademarked designation REALTOR, and am also a member of the Illinois Realtors association. I belong to the Egyptian Board of Realtors, and currently, serve on their Grievance Committee. There we review complaints and decide if it needs to be sent on to the state for further action or not. I do my best to help my clients have the smoothest transition in the buying or selling of their homes. Thank you Patrick Bevis.
