Meet the Team

 Combine enthusiasm, expertise, and an unshakeable work ethic, and you have the winning magic that makes up the Illiana Real Estate Team. Led by business partners Michelle Hurckes and Laura Finley, the all-female team includes Brandi Mace, Kyleen Estrada, Becky Gouwens, and Kristina Skinner.

Based out of Lowell, Indiana, the award-winning team works hard for their clients. Dual licensed in both Illinois and Indiana, the team focuses on a collaborative philosophy in their approach in working with clients. Covering northwest Indiana, the team works in the areas of Lowell, Cedar Lake, Crown Point, St. John, and Schererville, as well as several areas of Illinois, including Crete, Beecher, and Steger.

Whether it’s hand-holding first-time home buyers or working with military clients on their relocation needs, the Illiana Real Estate Team is all about their clients and providing a supportive environment through the often confusing process of buying or selling a home. As their philosophy goes, “As we all grow, we grow all together!”

One can say the early beginnings of the team was a sign it was meant to be. After all, Laura Finley was Michelle Hurckes’ real estate agent when she sold her home and moved to Indiana! Michelle became inspired by Laura’s path in real estate, and soon found herself working her way to her own successful real estate career. She joined forces with Laura, and the rest is history!

It’s been a match made in real estate heaven ever since, and the founders have led the team to a successful sales record for the last several years. With a combined 20 years practicing real estate, both Michelle and Laura are savvy marketers, using all the latest technology and tools at their disposal to help their clients succeed in their real estate transactions. They are also both Century 21 Affiliated Certified Relocation Specialists.

The Illiana Real Estate Team earned the highly coveted Master’s Team Award in 2016 and 2017 for excellence in sales, as well as the Pinnacle Customer Service Award in 2016 and 2017.
