About The Knell Group

Founded by the late Mary Ann Knell many years ago, The Knell Group continues to be a major player in the Central Illinois Real Estate market.  

The Knell Group’s core value, as an extension of Mary Ann’s vision, is to give our clients the power to live better. With hard work we consistently rank as one of the top Peoria area and Illinois real estate teams. This ranking is due to a honed talent and effective implementation of efficient home buying and selling systems. The 'team' concept in real estate was first introduced to the area by Mary Ann. Her intent was to ensure every client received consistent representation. She hand-picked and trained a group of talented and energetic professionals.  Many agents have joined the team, learned the industry from the ropes up and ventured on into successful solo careers but several remained with the group as a permanent home. We take Mary Ann’s legacy seriously and she lives on through The Knell Group as we continue her business she grew with the same vision, concept and work ethic. 

Our team consists of seasoned and newer agents that have joined together to serve all of Central IL areas. From $1ooK- $1M, we give each of our clients equal and honest representation.
