STEVEN HILL

At the age of 10, Steven started his entrepreneurial journey and his love for real estate by helping his mother (a local realtor) by handing out marketing flyers (only charging his mom 5 cents a flyer). After years of closely watching her negotiation skills, Steven absorbed her knowledge. His passion stuck with him from  childhood through today. He purchased his first home at age 19. Through this first purchase experience, Steven wanted to take what he learned and apply it to others. For the past 10 years, he has assisted numerous families to obtain their dream home. He strives to provide high-quality, personalized service to each and every person he works with. In Steven’s spare time he enjoys spending time with family and golfing.

GARY BRAATEN

Gary grew up in Garden City, New York (Long Island) and lived in the house that his father built. Fast forward 13 years and his father enlisted Gary and his brother to help build their family summer cabin in Woodstock Ct. Through these experiences at an early age, I came to understand the value of home ownership. Following my graduation from Wheaton College, and marrying his wife Alia, we bought our first home in 1982 (in Garden City, NY) and lived there for 13 years during which time  our 4 daughters were born! My job took me back to Wheaton in 1995 and we bought the home that we currently live in. My transition from working in sales and marketing for high-tech companies to helping people with their  real estate needs seems like second nature to me and I feel incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of the Lance Kammes Team – where doing the right thing and servicing our customers is what we do each and every day.
