Welcome home realty group

I was born in St. Louis MO and graduated high school here in 1993.  Shortly after high school, in 1995,  I moved to Memphis TN to attend the University of Memphis in search of a music business degree, but I ended up with a marketing degree instead.  I'm pretty sure I'm better off with that education than I would have been.  


I got my start in real estate in Memphis TN as an agent back in 2003, but quickly made the transition to a full time real estate investor.  I moved back to St. Louis in 2009 and continued my real estate career.  I'm proud to say that from my first sale until now (2022) that I have successfully sold over 500 homes.  

I know the process of buying and selling a home can be very stressful for some.  It's not an easy thing, but it's simple.  There is a process that I am very familiar with and to be honest I have a lot of fun doing it.  

Although I am familiar with most of St. louis real estate my main area of expertise and focus is South City and North County.
