Hello, my name is Jim Newcomb and I am a retired school teacher-Almost 40 years along the North Shore--math,science, and woodshop were my subject areas. I am an avid hunter and fisherman and love tinkering with cars.

I have lived in Antioch for almost 40 years and raised four boys, and each of them graduated from Antioch High School. My sons still live near-by. Grandma and Grandpa Newcomb consider that one of life's best blessings.

I know the Northeastern area of Illinois very well. Coaching during my teaching years and following my boys to every one of their activities in school has had me in every nook and cranny in Lake County.

My real estate partner is Candy Hill. We have worked together for almost 10 years. She is also a local gal who has lived in Lake County, IL since 1969.  She and her husband have raised their two daughters, in the area.  Both of them, including their daughters, all graduated from Antioch High School.

We are not "Spouses Selling Houses".  We would love to help you move!  Our greatest compliment is a referral to your family and friends! We promise to do our utmost to find them a home that fits their needs, price, and location!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $175K in Round Lake Beach, IL.

Jim and Candy are extremely personable and diligent, which in my opinion are extremely hard trait to have together. They care and they explain thoroughly the issues that stand in the way of the perfect sale. I must have spend 3-4 years just looking at different houses in Lake County with Jim and Candy. I am pretty picky, and was always waiting for the perfect time to strike with the market and the perfect affordable home with all of the bells and whistles of a $400k home. Jim with his patience and his passion to see my dream realized found me this home in Feb 2011. the House was a short sale and though the short sale got a little messy at the end, I came out with a $350k home overlooking a gorgeous pond in a very nice neighborhood near all of the amenities for $160k. It was a no brainer at that point. If you need a caring team that will go the extra ten miles to see that you get that home of your dreams, you will be hard pressed to find a better team than Jim Newcomb and Candy Hill. In 8-12 years if they are still going at it, I plan to buy another house with them, this time on a Lake.  More Less

Sold a home in 2008 in Trevor, Camp Lake, WI 53179.

I had a wonderful experience twice using Candy and Jim. They are knowledgeable, skilled and patient. They understood what was needed to sell as well as what I was interested in for a future home. I LOVE the home that they found for me.

Great team.,
