“We're so glad that Mitra is a part of our Griffin Realty team. Having arrived in the States in 2014 from Iran, she met Don the same year and was quickly hired to help with his growing business. With a B.S. in Statistics and Accounting and practical experience in the insurance business, she lends her financial expertise and real-world-know-how to our diverse group. "I never thought one day I would start working in real estate, but when I began working with Don and saw firsthand how he tries to help people every day, I became interested in becoming a realtor. I consider him a mentor. Don respects other cultures which makes me feel good working for him. I think he is one of the best people I know and the reason I'm in real estate. " When not in the office quietly working away, you'll find her reading, shopping, or baking Persian delicacies to share with friends and family.

“Family man and Boy Scout, Tim Ballard, is definitely someone you want on your team. Helping develop Griffin Realty and newly formed tenant placement agency, Off Campus Housing Agency (OCHA!) as Director of Operations, his business background and international perspective brings the team together. Having retired from several years of teaching and trading Euro options and futures at the Chicago Board of Trade, he now spends his time in Bloomington with his family using his unique skill sets on guiding and educating clients on their investments and commercial as well as residential ownership experience. Tim first met Don when Don showed him and his wife, Meg, their first house in Bloomington. They immediately connected, with Tim admiring both Don's business and life philosophies, and the rest is history. Tim loves being a part of Griffin Realty, and when you don't see him in the office or on the phone, he is away on an adventure in a national park somewhere with Meg and their two beautiful children.
