Broker Biography

John Brooks, Broker (618) 563-9300


Serving the Commercial property needs of Southern Illinois and Southern Indiana is the purpose of Illiana Properties. We were founded by a businessman and an Attorney / businessman who were motivated by the inadequate representation that they had both experienced in either buying or selling their businesses. Our mission is to do the right thing for your business, because it's the right thing to do.
Our experience in owning small businesses, construction, banking, local and state government, financial services, and drafting and implementing various TIF agreements gives us the background to adequately cater to the commercial needs of our clients. We maintain a high level of integrity and discretion through all the phases of the process, and take very seriously the obligation of guarding sensitive and privileged information.
When dealing with Illiana Properties, you can be assured that you will receive prompt, accurate, and informed responses to your inquiries. You can expect to be treated fairly and professionally; regardless of whether you are a client or just someone calling for information. We will make every effort to ensure that your Commercial needs are given the priority and confidentiality that you deserve.
Thank you for considering Illiana Properties; we hope you choose to use our services.

Services Provided

Illiana Properties takes the worry and concern out of selling or buying a business. We act as gatekeepers separating the lookers from real buyers of the property. We are honest, hardworking, and straightforward. Because both John and Hank have owned businesses in the past and currently, they understand that confidentiality and discretion is important to you.

Illiana Properties understands issues such as ADR, financing, valuation, asset vs. stock deal, inventory, accounts payable and receivable, financial statements and tax returns, re-development agreements, easements, deed restrictions, subordinated debt, PIP that will be required, etc. By hiring Illiana Properties you allow yourself to continue operating your property and we will take care of the entire sales process.

We are highly confidential, thorough, complete, and honest. I am a licensed Real Estate Broker in Indiana and Illinois, a registered Business Broker and a member of the Midwest Business Brokers and Intermediaries.

At Illiana Properties we are fully cognizant of the time, effort, energy, capital, and sacrifice that you have poured into your business. Our job is to bring liquidity to your asset. For a confidential consultation, please call our office or send me an e-mail. Visit our website to see all of our listings.
