About Homes, Land & Lakes Realty
Charlie Mills, Realtor® Managing Broker
I have held a real estate license since 2000. After working with a local franchise real estate business for several years, I started my own independent agency of Homes Land & Lakes Realty, LLC. We sell exactly what the name implies; homes, land and lake properties. My wife Mary, who also holds an Indiana real estate broker license and myself are the brokerage owners. We have enjoyed living in Kosciusko County, just west of Warsaw, on the Tippecanoe River and working with many satisfied clients.
I have many personal interests. I have served on the Board of Directors for the Kosciusko Real Estate Board serving our MLS area. I am a Ham (amateur radio) with a call sign of KC9UDJ and a member of the Hoosier Lakes Radio Club. I am also a volunteer mentor working with the local chapter of SCORE assisting individuals interested in developing a new business venture. Along with my wife, we have enjoyed our many travels over all areas of the U.S.
I do have a previous career as an educator teaching U.S. History, Government and Economics at Central Noble H.S. then as H.S. Principal. I moved to Kosciusko County as H.S. Principal at Tippecanoe Valley for 11 years. Along the way while as an educator I also built approximately 20 new homes and remodeled many others.
Mary Mills, Realtor® Broker Owner
I have held a real estate license since 1999. After working with a local franchise real estate brokerage for several years, I joined my husband in our own independent real estate business, Homes Land & Lakes Realty. I have worked in Kosciusko County for many years retiring from a local orthopedic firm. I have enjoyed serving on the Kosciusko County Convention, Recreation and Visitor's Commission and also on the board of Directors for the Kosciusko Visitor's Bureau. I previously served as a township trustee in Noble County before moving to Kosciusko County in 1992. With my knowledge of the local and surrounding areas, I am in a position to be a tremendous help to buyers and sellers, either relocating to the community or simply moving to a new neighborhood. Building a great relationship with my clients is very important to me.
My personal interests involve many travels across this country with my husband and keeping up with the activities of grand children. I also enjoy nature and the many flowers around my home on the Tippecanoe River, just west of Warsaw.
