My name is Russel Nieters and I currently live in the Godfrey/Alton Illinois area, and have so for 25+ years.  I am a native from the St. Louis area and I am very familiar to the south central area of Illinois.

I served in the United States Coast Guard, serving in search and rescue in Kodiak Alaska and aids to navigation as well as search and rescue on the upper Mississippi River confluence.

I currently hold a first responder certification in the state of Illinois. I am A Master Mason, belonging to the Franklin Lodge #25 in Alton Illinois.

My life time career has been in management and supervisory roles in various industries.  I entered into the Real Estate business due to down sizing on layoffs in a company I was working in.  I have enjoyed the Real Estate business over the years, meeting various people from just about every walk of life.  I do like to travel and accepting assignments in various portions of the state.
