Finding Your Next Home
Buying a home is an important investment, and with the right team of experts it can be a fun, exciting and simple experience. Not only do we help our buyers find the house of their dreams, but we also give them the necessary information to go beyond the curb appeal to make a truly wise real estate decision. Our prowess in negotiation combined with our ability to assess a home’s value make us the homebuyer’s secret weapon when searching for THE house that checks all the boxes.
How To Buy A House
Ready to take the first step? Before we start house hunting, here’s a quick breakdown of what you can expect when partnering with us:
First, we’ll have an intro meeting to learn more about you and all of your “must-haves” and “deal breakers.” Once we determine your preferences and concerns, our team can provide you with options that best fit what you’re looking for in a new home. This is the best time to apply for your pre-approval! There’s nothing worse than finding the perfect home, only to have another offer accepted while waiting on your loan approval. That’s why it’s best to get pre-approved right away! Don’t know who to speak to about pre-approval? No sweat! We can refer you to great lenders to get you started.
Our team will take all the great information you provided to us with during your consultation and use it to narrow down your search. We’ll curate your experience, only showing you homes that you’re interested in seeing – because who likes to waste their time? Definitely not you. You’ll get exclusive access to a tailored home search where you can browse for new listings. Plus, our team has exclusive access to off-market properties, helping you to avoid bidding wars in a competitive market!
Next, the fun part! We schedule showings in your preferred locations around the St. Louis Metropolitan area for homes that fit your criteria (and have a great time doing it!). Whether you’re a first-time buyer or a veteran, we use this time to educate you on your purchase and what might come next should you decide to make an offer. By the time you buy, you’ll feel like an expert too!
Once we have found a home you love and that fits all of your needs, it’s time to make an offer. Using our over 18 years of combined experience, we’ll help you craft a competitive offer that keeps your best interests in mind, while standing out from the rest. We will look past perfect lawns and stylish interiors to identify things that might require the attention of other professionals (such as contractors, surveyors, etc.).
Great! A seller has accepted your offer. While this is awesome and exciting news, there’s still a lot of work to be done once you’re under contract. But don’t worry! Our team does all of the heavy lifting. We’ll help coordinate your appraisal, inspections, and necessary repairs – as well as guide you through any further negotiations.
A lot can happen before you make it to the closing table, which is why our team is always available to answer your questions or help solve any of your concerns.

With a baby on the way, the unease of early Covid-19 shut-downs, and a seller-friendly real estate market, my wife and I were expecting a long, frustrating search for a home in our desired neighborhood. Adam and Michelle understood our situation and delivered us our dream home while making the entire buying experience enjoyable…
Adam was referred to us by a friend at the outset of our home search. He made himself available just 12 hours after we contacted him, and proceeded to show us the first couple houses of what turned out to be over 50 in the months to follow. We were first-time home buyers and Adam made us feel like we had already done this 5 times…

If you are looking for a great realtor, look no further. Adam is one of the best people we’ve had the pleasure of working with during our home buying and selling process. Right from the start, we knew we were in good hands…
-Robyn and Maura
“Adam is the best! He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and responsive! He helped my wife and I buy our first house and list it years later. He made the experience so easy and enjoyable, especially for first-time homebuyers like us…”
-Dom and Jenny
“I worked with Adam when my wife and I bought our first home. It’s a huge, complicated decision, with so many different things that can go badly, but I felt comfortable through the entire process. After learning about our priorities and budget, Adam scheduled our first round of home tours…”
“Chelsy was absolutely wonderful to work with. She helped my wife and I with purchasing our first home, and was excited to answer any and all questions we had along the way, even the hard ones. She clearly has a passion for genuinely helping people, and it shows in her attention to detail and personable attitude…”
-Aaron & Audrey
“Chelsy is knowledgeable, kind, and will do whatever it takes to get the job done. She put our needs first and she helped us find the perfect home. She worked tirelessly to make sure that our needs were met and she offered helpful (but gentle) nudges when we needed them…”
