“Small town values- BIG TIME results” isn’t just a catch-phrase for Jim Ludes. For him, it’s a way of life in and outside of real estate. “I was raised in Lockport at a time that it wasn’t much more developed than the Coal City/ Diamond area is now. I spent seven years in a class with the same 30 kids. You learn pretty quickly in that environment how to treat people the right way,” he admits. As for the other half of the slogan Ludes begrudgingly admits, “You have to brag a little bit in the business or people tend to forget you’re in it. I’ve been a multi-million dollar producer for over 4 years and I believe that’s testament to the hard work I put forth with each and every client.”

Hard work is nothing new for Ludes. While working and attending school full-time, Ludes graduated on the Dean’s List from the University of Saint Francis in Joliet with a degree in Elementary Education in 2002. Shortly thereafter he relocated to Coal City with his bride and began his career in real estate. “It’s hard to believe that it’s just fewer than six years that I’ve lived in Coal City. I took to the community immediately and became involved in covering issues at the Coal City Library and Coaler athletics for the Coal City Courant.”

“When not selling or marketing homes I cherish time with my wife and two sons, coaching youth soccer, teaching math and reading after school to under-privileged students in Joliet and (as time permits) writing for atomic sports media and blogging away!”

      Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $200K in Coal City, IL.
      Jim was wonderful to work with. His response was almost always immediate whether it was by phone, email or text! He knew the local area and market and worked relentlessly to find us the perfect house for us. He was patient and understanding as well as generous with his time and knowledge. I will definitely use him again to buy or sell a house.  MoreLess

      Sold a home in 2007.
      Jim is a very honest realator which as most people know they are hard to find. I wanted someone to be totally honest as to what my property was worth and he told me. Most people want to think that their property is worth more than what it really is and alot of realators that i've dealt with in the past will tell you that it is to get the listing but not Jim.  MoreLess
